The Terileptils were as dedicated to beauty and art as they were to war, mixing the two with ease. Typical of their creations were the bejewelled killer androids. A group of four Terileptils escaped from the prison planet Raaga to seventeenth century England. Realising they could not return home, they decided to wipe humanity out so that they might survive. To this end, they released a virulent disease carried by black rats. One Terileptil was killed by a local Squire shortly after their arrival, another in their London base by Richard Mace.
