(and young Jemina's head mistress, obviously)
Name: Suruk the Slayer
Heritage: Morlock (M'Lak)
Wit, philosopher, man-about-town: Suruk the Slayer is none of these things.
Six feet five of deranged alien warrior, he is constantly on the lookout for honourable combat and skulls to put on his mantelpiece, and consequently handles tactics and boarding actions for the John Pym.
His interests include bladed weaponry, vendetta and erecting shelves to further display his skull collection.
He owes a debt of honour to Smith, who once rescued him from an unfortunate incident in Woolworths.
