After being shot by Ace, he regenerated into a new body, (PROSE: First Frontier) but this Master was then reduced to ashes by the Daleks, (PROSE: The Novel of the Film, The TV Movie) and by the time his spirit resurfaced using a Deathworm Morphant, the nanites had "failed", leading the Master's default appearance to revert to the decayed form he inhabited before he even possessed the Trakenite Tremas, his original thirteenth incarnation.
