Neanderthal
Affiliated with: Humans, Dæmons
Place of origin: Earth
Appearances: DW: Ghost Light
NA: Timewyrm: Genesys
Mentioned in: DW: The Dæmons
Notable Individuals: Nimrod, Enkidu

Neanderthals are a species, related to Humans, who existed in early human history. Neanderthals evolved in Eurasia around the same time as humans did in Africa, from the same ancestor species. The Neanderthals were mostly wiped out by the Humans, with the help of the Dæmons, who for unknown reasons favored Humanity. (DW: The Dæmons)

Physically very like humans, they had jutting brow ridges, large noses and stooped postures. However, while stereotyped as brutish by later humans, Nimrod showed intelligence and spoke articulately.

The tribe which Nimrod originally belonged to herded mammoths during the summer for food. They considered the fang of the cave bear to be a sign of wisdom. The tribal elders "spoke with the voice of the Burning One", namely Light. The actions of the Doctor implied that at some time in the past, the Doctor had encountered the Neanderthal species some time before. (DW: Ghost Light)

Nimrod referred to Light as "The Burning One", implying that his tribe worshipped him. Alternatively, they may have originally worshipped another deity (or the Sun) as the Burning One and when Light appeared, transferred their worship to him.

Some Neanderthal societies, such as Enkidu's, survived well past the paleolithic Ice Ages. (NA: Timewyrm: Genesys)

Nimrod survived to 1883 by unspecified means. (DW: Ghost Light)

Neanderthal was a bipedal species on Earth prior to and during the development of Humans. Despite their greater strength and large brain cavity, this species managed to defy evolution by becoming displaced by Humans. Popular belief considered this species to be inherently stupid, however revealing archeological data shows an intelligence equal to that of early humans.

In 1974, Roberta Lincoln compared Carlos Quintana to a Neanderthal. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)
