History[]

Vila Restal was an extremely intelligent but cautious (and sometimes cowardly) citizen of the Terran Federation who deliberately cultivated an appearance of stupidity in order to avoid being drafted into Spacefleet. A natural born thief, he was eventually sentenced to life imprisonment on the planet Cygnus Alpha, but was rescued by the would-be revolutionary Roj Blake and ended up becoming a somewhat unwilling member of the freedom fighters Blake's 7. Vila remained with the seven even after Blake's eventual disappearance because he had nowhere else to go and mistakenly believed that Avon would always protect him as he valued his skills. He apparently died along with most of his crewmates in a Federation trap on the planet of Gauda Prime.

Paraphernalia[]

Equipment

Teleport bracelets; thief's tools.

Vila originated in the BBC TV series Blake's 7, and was the only character to appear in every televised episode. He also featured in all three of the Blake's 7 Annuals published by World Distributors and in Marvel UK's Blake's 7: A Marvel Monthly.
