Rani Chandra, Lady Rani (born 1993) was a teenage girl who lived on Bannerman Road. She assisted Sarah Jane Smith and her friends in combating alien menaces and protecting the Earth from natural threats originating from space. Rani had an impressive interest in the field of journalism, and was happy to be in the presence of Sarah Jane, a seasoned expert in reporting and investigating strange occurrences on the planet. She enjoyed Sarah Jane's tutelage and developed a strong fondness toward Clyde Langer that hinted at a possible affection for him, though she was wary to acknowledge this and did not make it readily apparent to him or her friends.

In 2009, Rani and her parents, Haresh and Gita Chandra, moved from Danemouth into 36 Bannerman Road in Ealing, London, the house formerly occupied by Alan and Maria Jackson. Rani quickly became mixed up in alien adventures after meeting Sarah Jane. Rani was stalked by the evil entity that manifested itself as Odd Bob the Clown. She and the others collectively managed to stop the entity from rising to full power.

Although Sarah Jane was initially hesitant, Rani quickly ingratiated herself and became a vital member of Sarah Jane's group. Along the way, she learned about many of Sarah Jane's adventures, and even becoming familiar with the Doctor and his TARDIS.

After this Rani helped Sarah Jane stop the Ancient Lights, as they attempted to take over the world through Martin Trueman. She was temporarily taken over by the lights due to her star sign.
