Inquisitor Prime Darkelatraquistahastrad (Darkel for short) of the House of Jurisprudence served on the High Council of Gallifrey.

Darkel presided over the Sixth Doctor's trial on the Time Lord Space Station Zenobia. The Valeyard acted as prosecutor. The Doctor acted as his own defence lawyer.

An honest woman, Darkel presided over a show trial meant to draw attention away from the corrupt High Council. With political unrest demanding a new Lord President and the Doctor unwilling to take the job himself, he gave a symbolic vote of confidence to Darkel before departing in his TARDIS.
