Kal was a greedy caveman who wanted leadership in his tribe.


He saw the TARDIS arrive near his camp and captured the Doctor believing him to be able to make fire. Kal, using the Doctor as help, promised his tribe that he would be the better leader over Za because he had the power to make fire, given to him by Orb.

After Za was still considered leader, Kal framed the current leader over the death of the Old Mother. After being found out to be lying, Kal was thrown out of the tribe. He returned, duelling Za to a death match, however, he was finally killed where he stood.
