Gallifreyans

The Gallifreyans were once one of the oldest and mightiest civilizations in the universe. They wrote in a language of the same name, Gallifreyan. They participated in a war known as "The Last Great Time War" which lead to their downfall. The Daleks were already a merciless and murderous race, but as the Time Lords fought against them they went down a dark path. This led to The Doctor using the moment in The Last Great Time War to time-lock all of the participants.

Regeneration

Regeneration is the process of when a Time Lord renews themselves, due to old age or a fatal injury. Regeneration can also be invoked by choice, or by an outside force. A Time Lord can choose not to regenerate, but this would lead to death. If a Time Lord is fatally harmed during the regeneration process they will die forever. Regeneration causes them to change apperance and often personality. A Time Lord can change gender when they regenerate, although The Doctor has always remained male. Time Lords have a limited amount of regenerations; 12 regenerations, meaning 13 incarnations. The Doctor stated, in the 2005 revival of the show, that even though he technically evaded death, the regeneration process felt like he was dying. When a Time Lord is regenerating they emit a gold/yellow "light".

Time Lord Technology

A huge impact to the Time Lords are the TARDISes, or Time And Relative Dimension In Space. This is the Time Lords was of transportation using materialization, making a TARDIS able to disappear and reappear in another location. Materialization can make it so a TARDIS appears around an object or person but can also leave without some people, only when the operator wants. With the Time Lords knowladge of the Time Vortex, a TARDIS can also travel through time. A TARDIS has a chameleon circuit that assess the surroundings of a time and place just before arrival and change the exterior to resemble something commonly found in that time and place. Using time lord technology a TARDIS is bigger on the inside. The Doctor once said that the TARDIS goes on infinatly and is in a constant state of growth and rearrangment.
