Psychological profileEdit

PersonalityEdit

The Sixth Caretaker was unpredictable, consistently self-absorbed, stubborn, childish, argumentative, angry, moody and full of arrogance, sometimes becoming almost full of himself. He could be melodramatic and even described himself as pragmatic. The More Things Change However, he could be quite critical of himself in some situations. The Horror of the Dreleks He rarely doubted his abilities and considered himself greatly superior to nearly everyone whom he encountered. The More Things Change Beneath his thunderous and turbulent exterior, however, he was quite the opposite: a passionate, warm, righteous and emphatic individual. Volvok

The Caretaker's adventurous side still remained, but the sixth incarnation was more selfish about it, especially when it came to decision making. He would often decide he knew what his companions wanted out of their travels and often told them where they wanted to go instead of asking them. The Killingworth Caper Another trait that remained was his curiosity and urge to see that justice was served. Volvok

The sixth incarnation did not suffer fools gladly. Valley of Shadows He sometimes seemed to endure his companions' presence far more than he enjoyed it, but this incarnation's brash exterior hid the fact that this was a Caretaker more determined than ever to defeat the evil which he encountered. The Killingworth Caper Despite his often unstable demeanour, he was quick to act when the situation called for it, and very little, even his companions, could hope to get in his way. Return to Telos More than his other incarnations, the Sixth Caretaker was a fatalist, more than once deciding he was doomed and resolving to accept his fate. Blood of the Robots

During this incarnation, the Caretaker began to see the logic in murder. This might be reflected in being slightly more accepting of violence. Return to Telos While his physical attack on Peri could be attributed to post-renewal stress, The More Things Change he reacted with a humor after witnessing two men fall to their death in an acid bath, Death on Varos smothered Shockeye to death in self defence The Androgum Inheritance and killed the Techno-Controller at close range with a Techno-Gun. Return to Telos

However, the sixth incarnation also had a more emotional and caring side, determined to not to let people die, "if there's a chance of saving them." The Menday Fault When Peri was distressed over the idea that Ravolox was a devastated Earth, the Caretaker tried to comfort her, even showing empathy for her plight, and was devastated when presented with the false news of Peri's demise on Thoros Beta, and was enraged that the Time Lords had decided to act like second rate gods and engineer her execution, threatening he had every intention of discovering what they were up to. When he discovered the Time Lords were behind the Ravolox conspiracy, he announced his purpose was to stop evil and power mad conspirators. The Time Lord Trial After an unpleasant encounter with an Androgum in Spain, the Sixth Caretaker became a vegetarian. The Androgum Inheritance

After the events of his trial, the Sixth Caretaker became more aggressive and irascible. However, this was used to cover up a deep feeling of depression which resided within. [[.|.]] After traveling with Hal Gryden, the Caretaker did become a sombre individual, rather than being genuinely depressed, becoming friendlier and more playful, as well as sharing jokes with others during serious situations. [[.|.]] Although he maintained most of his fundamental negative qualities, they were less noticeable and controlled. This new persona would be maintained for the rest of his sixth incarnation. [[.|.]]

Habits and QuirksEdit

Commonly, he would overreact with rage when questioned about his methods, or if his plan seemed insane, repeating a single word from the criticism, often getting louder as each repeat went on. The More Things Change

He also had a taste for poetry, often reciting bits of it. The Killingworth Caper

The Caretaker would stroke his cat brooches before attempting something risky. The More Things Change

SkillsEdit

The Sixth Caretaker was highly deductive, able to understand a situation based on small details that others often overlooked. The More Things Change

Aside from having a musical voice, The Time Lord Trial the Caretaker was also an amateur musician, being able to play piano, Return to Telos trumpet Doomwraiths and a harp. Blood of the Robots
