The Master: Do you believe in gods, Alice?
Alice Obiefune: I'm not sure. Probably not.
The Master: You have to believe in them to be able to kill them.
Alice Obiefune: Killing gods. It's not possible...
The Master: Oh, it is possible. This is the Time War. You can murder anything here.
~ The Master talking with Alice Obiefune

The Master in his child incarnation appears to working with the Doctor in the Time War and, eventually, tries to betray him. He is the overall 16th Incarnation of The Master.

Appearance

In his sixteenth incarnation, the Master's body was that of a small child with black hair and blue eyes. On Veestrax, he had short hair, and wore a white shirt with a black jacket. By the time he and the Doctor had arrived on Golgauth, the Master's hair was longer, and he sported a scarlet shirt under his jacket.

Personality

While fighting in the Last Great Time War, the Master delighted in the prospect of committing genocide. He saw people as resources, and that teaming up with the War Doctor was a worthwhile option during wartime. He also had a fondness for paradoxes. The Master wanted to fight in the Time War, but seeing the hopelessness of his efforts with the Doctor he fled from their fight with the Cyclors. He concluded that he enjoyed death and chaos only when it was fun for him.

At the moment of his regeneration, the Master held contempt for the Doctor and Alice Obiefune, declaring that he would have his revenge on them.

Alliance with the Doctor

At some point, the Master regenerated into his sixteenth incarnation. Now in the body of a small child, the Master, as he always did after a regeneration, visited the Scoundrels Club.

The Master made a deal with the War Doctor to end their old ways of fighting and to become allies. He teamed up with the Doctor and his companion, the Squire, for a time, during the period of the War in which the Cyclors allied themselves with the Daleks.

The Doctor and the Master travelled to Veestrax, where they saw a broken wall with "Exterminate" written on it. The Master told the Doctor that he hadn't written it. The Doctor then asked for the Master's help with destroying the planet.

He arrived on Golgauth with the Doctor, asking what he intended to do, to which the Doctor said "what [he] [had] to". The duo soon encountered the Volatix Cabal, together killing one of its members. They then encountered Alice Obiefune, who had travelled in the Master's TARDIS from after the War had ended. The Master set about tethering his future TARDIS to the Doctor's while the Squire set about saving Alice from the Volatix Tendrils.

With both TARDISes in tow, they travelled beneath the surface of Golgauth, where an Overcaste rebel base was located. The Master and the Doctor revealed a Volatix spy in the group and neutralised him. The spy revealed that he had called for help and moments later a Cyclor tore off the roof of the base. The Master used a device to summon a squadron of Gallifreyan ships to attack the Cyclors. He used this distraction to flee, sneaking into his TARDIS that Alice had brought from the future. He inadvertently created a paradox when attempting to fly the machine, realising too late that he was erasing a timeline that brought his future TARDIS into being.

The chronal tumour began to react with the Psilent songbox, which had been activated by Alice. Realising that it would result in a temporal bomb, the Master deactivated it. The Master was too late, however, and the resulting paradox caused his body to regenerate into his seventeenth incarnation. Horrified by this, he swore revenge on the Doctor and his companions, but ultimately his memory of Alice's intervention in the War was erased. The Master's TARDIS recorded that the Master fled the event horizon in his TARDIS before the Doctor's plans were carried out, deeming them too insane even for him. The Master then went to the Scoundrels Club to better recover from the regeneration process.
