The Doctor
"The Doctor is a legend, woven throughout history..."

The Doctor is a Time Lord, one of an ancient civilization who were destroyed in the last great Time War. He is over 900 years old and travels through time and space in his TARDIS, and is well-known throughout the stars for saving countless planets and species from danger. Through doing this, he has gained an expansive knowledge of the universe and its weird and wonderful ways.

Prior to the death of his people, the Doctor had a human mother and a Gallifreyan father. He has the ability to regenerate, a Time Lord trait which means that upon death he can completely change his cellular structure, giving himself a new face and body, and often a different personality, but retaining the few things that make him who he is. As a Time Lord, he is also gifted with acute hearing, super-strength, two hearts and a respiratory bypass system, meaning he can go for short periods of time without needing oxygen.
