Name:The Master
The Time Lords only resurrected me because they knew I’d be the perfect warrior for a Time War. I was there when the Dalek Emperor took control of the Cruciform. I saw it. I ran. I ran so far.

But he hasn't run yet.

The Master

The Time Lords are fighting their War with the Daleks- the Last Great Time War, as it will come to be called. Even the Time Lords, stiff-necked idiots that they are, can recognise when they need help, and so they turn to the Matrix, and to their own dead, resurrecting those whom they think will be of most use to them and Looming them new bodies.

Among these is the Master, who'd died in the Eye of Harmony aboard the Doctor's TARDIS.

This particular incarnation of the Master is distinguished by a particular melancholy that his predecessors haven't really possessed. For the first time since he was a boy, he's constrained, stuck on Gallifrey- and furthermore, at the beck and call of Madam President bloody Romanadvoratrelundar. So he's bitter about that, he's strained and weighed upon, as you would be, but at the same time, feels that he is, in a sense, a new man. He's risen from the dead, isn't that piquant, with a new body- his own body, for the first time in centuries, and that feels damn good. So he has a certain amount of frustrated hope to him.

He's gone back to the mould of the gentleman villain in part in this regeneration, all well-spoken and restrained menace, with less emphasis on the maniacal cackling and villainous capes. In this incarnation, he's got a little more of a tendency towards genuine cruelty, and violence as an outlet for frustrations. He's willing to cooperate with Romana and the Time Lords for now, because he knows that, for the present, it seems the best way of accomplishing what needs to be done, but he has no great loyalty to them, and nothing stopping him from running again, if the advantage turns elsewhere.
