"Mrs. Wormwood" was the lead Bane, second only to the Bane Mother, in the invasion of Earth. After her failure and the death of the Bane Mother, the Bane Kindred made her a pariah.

Invading Earth

As Sarah Jane Smith noted, it is said in the Book of Revelation that at the end of the world a star called Wormwood will fall to Earth and poison the water. Posing as a Human using an image translator, she oversaw the distribution of Bubble Shock!, supposedly just a soft drink, which served as a front for the Bane takeover of Earth (specifically Great Britain, the country from which she ran operations). She was also in charge of the creation of an artificial Human called the "the Archetype", later known as Luke Smith. She managed to escape the destruction of the Bubble Shock! factory in London. (SJA: Invasion of the Bane)

Exile and Partnership with Kaagh

She was blamed for the failure of the invasion and was cast out of the Bane Kindred, who attempted to eat her alive as punishment. She fled and made an alliance with the disgraced Sontaran Commander Kaagh. The pair set out to find one of two halves of Horath's identity. Mrs Wormwood kidnapped Gita Chandra at her work to draw Sarah Jane's attention and ask for her help in retrieving the other half. Sarah Jane had Mr Smith imprison her with a containment vortex. At the same time that Bane agents arrived, she escaped and re-united with Kaagh.
Wormwood allies herself with Kaagh
She attempted to get Luke Smith on her side, considering herself to be his real mother, but although Luke showed her sympathy he ultimately refused. Mrs Wormwood and Kaagh opened Horath's Portal but Sarah Jane stopped her from becoming Empress of the Galaxy. Kaagh then pulled Wormwood into the Portal and they both fell inside it. Sarah Jane sealed the Portal and then destroyed the device that opened it. (SJA: Enemy of the Bane)

Tools and equipment

As an exile, she had a sonic disruptor in the form of a ring. (SJA: Enemy of the Bane)
