Early life [ ]
Main article: Theory:Timeline - The Master's early life
The War Chief [ ]
Some accounts imply that the War Chief was an incarnation of the Master, ( PROSE: Doctor Who and the Terror of the Autons , Doctor Who and the Doomsday Weapon ) although others state that they are separate individuals. ( PROSE: Divided Loyalties , A Brief History of Time Lords )
The War Lord encounters the Time Lord who will become his War Chief in a Trastevarian jail, after the Time Lord regenerates from his injuries. ( PROSE: Save Yourself )
The War Chief matches wits with the Second Doctor when he lands in the War Games, until he proposes an alliance with the Doctor to double-cross the War Lords and seize their powers for themselves. When his treachery is discovered, the War Chief is apparently executed.
Continuing on from The War Games, the War Chief undergoes a faulty regeneration from his execution, manifesting as two bodies fused together. Convincing the remaining War Lords that his treachery was a misunderstanding, the War Chief frees them from their time loop prison, and takes them to Nazi Germany, where he becomes an occult advisor to Adolf Hitler, with the intention of replacing him as Führer with Heinrich Himmler. When the Seventh Doctor exposes his plans, the War Chief is caught in an explosion at Drachensberg castle and is briefly glimpsed by Ace with a "young, tall, dark and satanically handsome" appearance.

The Lumiat [ ]
In an aborted timeline, the Lumiat projects herself to Missy to warn her of the dangers of an entropy wave. She asks Missy to give over her remaining regenerations, but Missy refuses.
The Lumiat foils several of Missy's schemes, leading Missy to believe she is the Doctor. They spend some time travelling together, with the Lumiat trying to act as a good influence on her. However, Missy soon grows bored of the Lumiat and mortally wounds her, abandoning her in the middle of her regeneration.
