** ''Interference'' writer Lawrence Miles later said in a DWM interview that the Eighth Doctor's virgin status (in every sense of the word) was very interestingly at odds with his romantic nature; ''Interference'' includes a conversation about it between the Doctor and I.M. Foreman, in which it's also very heavily implied that they had sex in between Book One and Book Two.

First mentioned in the ''Franchise/BerniceSummerfield'' novel ''Ship Of Fools'' and later introduced in ''Interference''. Compassion is a former member of a Faction Paradox paramility group known as the Remote: a big exercise in playing with AliensStealCable. She likes uncomplicated people, fighting, and snarking. Originally, she was born on Earth in the 26th Century, and got re-iterated in the Remote remembrance tanks after dying four times over, meaning that the version of her who ends up travelling with the Doctor is a culmination of the Remote's perception of her. Her life gets... [[BalefulPolymorph weird]].

* IronicNickname

to:

* IronicNicknameIronicNickname: The original Laura Tobin liked the joke that "Compassion" was her middle name. It stuck when she was remembered.



* TokenEvilTeammate

to:

* TokenEvilTeammateTokenEvilTeammate: Her family sent her to Ordifica just to get rid of her, and becoming part of the Remote didn't improve her demeanor. Having been fed nothing but Faction Paradox lore and Remote media for her past couple of iterations, she has no concept whatsoever of morality or principles until she meets Sam.

Added DiffLines:

* EternalLove: Has a variation of the trope with I.M. Foreman, one of the very few people he becomes intimate with on a more than superficial level. Exactly how that intimacy plays out is left up to the readers' imagination, but considering the amount of giggling I.M. Foreman does after she wakes up next to him and their conversations afterwards, it's not hard to guess.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: While Fitz and Sam are almost this trope, her original full name of "Laura Tobin" was only established in ''a Bernice Summerfield novel'' by Dave Stone. But Compassion ''isn't'' Laura Tobin, she's a [[ReplacementGoldfish re-iteration of her]]. (The original, first version of Laura is first seen as a full-fledged character in the novel ''Of The City Of The Saved...'')

For the many, ''many'' tropes following her departure from the Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures, see ''Franchise/FactionParadox''. The Faction Paradox Protocols audios produced by BBV see her voiced by Jackie Skarvellis (albeit only in a temporary host body). Branching out from her arc in these stories, she got her own series of spinoff novels published by Obverse, called ''The City Of The Saved''.

The Eighth Doctor's first companion in the [=EDAs=]. She's 16 years old at the beginning of her run and comes from Coal Hill school in the 1990's -- a cheerful social justice activist looking for adventure. Soon enough, however, it's revealed that her past is a little more complicated, and that the Doctor had an impact on her personal timeline in ways neither is aware of.

* SueDonym: Close enough, anyway: almost all his aliases are terrible, obvious, and related to his usual pseudonym, such as Holiday, Mistletoe, and Mr. [[GKChesterton G.K.]] [[Literature/TheManWhoWasThursday Thursday]] (the GeniusBonus just makes it worse[[note]]although it's rather interesting how well it all fits, if you think about it.[[/note]]).

* CleopatraNose: Well, Sam doesn't exactly think so.
-->Shame about his nose - it was a bit too long, but at least it matched the rest of him.
