“There’s no hurry you see.We have all the time in the world.”

James-Bonds-600x300 Back in 2012 I discussed crossing Doctor Who over with James Bond here and so I thought it was about time I added write-ups for a Time Lord Bond. Exiled to Earth the PCs can meet the incarnations in many different eras of the 20th and 21st century (not necessarily in order).

Needless to say there are spoilers for the various Bond films.

Time Lord

PERSONAL GOAL

Protect the UK and its interests.

PERSONALITY

Bond barely hides his disdain of those in power behind a mask of sophistication . He is equally comfortable in the casinos of Monte Carlo and gypsy settlements in Turkey.

Cruel and ruthless, he won’t hesitate to despatch an opponent with a witty quip.

Bond has an eye for attractive women and will use charm or force to get what he wants, marking him as something of a misogynist.

BACKGROUND

Exiled to Earth by the Time Lords James Bond was given the assignment of protecting Britain, and by extension the world, from a potential escalation in the Cold War. Creating a cover identity Bond was able to secure a position in MI6, becoming a 00 agent.

His alien nature was hidden until a SPECTRE assassin successfully injured him following an assignment to Japan. MI6 realised the asset they had and kept him on, using their resources to continue to hide his inhuman nature.

Following his short-lived 2nd Incarnation Bond regenerated into his old form. This 3rd Incarnation lived long enough to avenge the death of his wife before triggering a 4th regeneration.

In an alternative timeline this 3rd Incarnation stabilised but was soon retired, spending over a decade teaching new spies. He was eventually put back in the field where, due to the manipulation of time, he replayed the events of operation Thunderball in the 1980s.

TRAITS

Time Lord

PERSONAL GOAL

Bring down SPECTRE and Blofeld

PERSONALITY

One of the most human and vulnerable of the Bond incarnations, he never fully recovered from his brush with death. This makes him more empathic and able to form an actual connection with the objects of his affections.

This Bond is happier when adopting the identity of someone else, allowing him to play in the role. Once exposed his fear can get the better of him, pushing him into flight rather fight. He is given to occasional bouts of depression and self-deprecation.

BACKGROUND

Regenerating for the first time Bond was driven to find and eliminate Blofeld. This crusade was so all consuming that it almost drove him to resign from MI6. Instead he was given leave, which he used to continue the investigation on his own.

It was during this time that he met and fell in love with the beautiful Contessa Teresa ‘Tracy’ di Vicenzo. For the first time Bond felt he could have a permanent relationship with a human. Although foiling a diabolical plot to blackmail governments by Blofeld the mastermind returned to personally kill Bond’s bride.

Blinded by rage Bond recklessly chased Blofeld, rushing into danger. It was hardly a surprise that he was once again grievously injured, forcing a regeneration. Subconsciously this incarnation felt he never measured up to his predecessor and so his 3rd Incarnation was almost identical to the 1st.

TRAITS

Insatiable Curiosity, Obligation (British government), Weakness (Women)

Time Lord

PERSONAL GOAL

Protect the World

PERSONALITY

This Bond uses humour to hide the loss he still feels for his wife and his fear. He appears more relaxed and is quick to tell a joke or make light of a situation. He feels that this gives him more humanity and distracts from the fact his job often requires him to kill.

Over time he becomes more confident, acting as if he is invulnerable.

BACKGROUND

After his unstable 3rd Incarnation forced him to regenerate again Bond tried to put his demons behind him, throwing himself into his work. No longer would he get close to anyone, settling only for brief, romantic liaisons.

During this era Bond was personally responsible for creating open dialogue between different nations. Thanks to his influence the superpowers were starting to see each other as neighbours on the planet, rather than rivals.

His career saw him deal with drug dealers, evil geniuses and rogue military forces. Bond found a renewed love for gadgets, using them extensively to vanquish his enemies. At the same time he developed an increasing distaste for cold-blooded murder.

Due to a number of factors Bond aged at the same rate as a human, staying in the field long beyond the typical age of retirement. As he approached his end Bond was caught in a time flux, briefly crossing paths with his 3rd Incarnation in a timeline where that form had stabilised. He took it as a portent that there is a time when you need to let go and move on.

Eventually his body could take the stress no longer, triggering his next regeneration.

Time Lord

PERSONAL GOAL

Protect the UK

PERSONALITY

Dark and intense, this Bond rarely delivers his usual humours quips. Typically this Bond is much more focused on his mission. Even his relationships with women are more chaste, compared to that of his former Incarnations.

BACKGROUND

Compared to his predecessors career this Bond found himself in a much more uncertain world. The threat of nuclear war seemed an increasingly real and his missions often put into conflict with real forces of evil such as international drug smugglers.

He regularly made use of his license to kill, eliminating anyone who endangered the world or who had wronged his friends. While other Incarnations had been guardians and protectors he was an avenger, which often put him at odds with his superiors.

There are only a few records of this Bonds activities but this is because he plunged so deep into the shadows that most of his missions were never revealed. All that is known is that during an unofficial operation he was injured in the line of duty, requiring another regeneration.

One unsubstantiated rumour is that the Time Lords attempted to recruit this incarnation into the Time War. While he refuse his personality and form served as a template for the rebirth of Rassilon.

PERSONAL GOAL

Protect the World

PERSONALITY

Combining the intensity of his 5th incarnation with the wry humour of his 4th. Bond is charming until someone crosses him, at which point he shows little mercy. More content to work within the system and take advantage of his senior position.

BACKGROUND

This Incarnation dealt with the fallout from the end of the Cold War, primarily ensuring that weapons of mass destruction stayed out of the wrong hands. Increasingly the biggest threats came from criminal organisations and business moguls who thought they could buy the world.

Despite attempts to move with the times Bond was frequently accused of being a dinosaur. Drink and brief romances helped numb him to the guilt he had for everyone he couldn’t save. Cracks were beginning to show in his persona and Bond questioned whether the Earth still needed him.

It was during this period that he was drawn into the Time War. MI6 struggled without one of their best and longest serving agents, wondering if he would ever return. When he did they found he had once again regenerated but not without complications. This Bond had no recollection of his past.

PERSONAL GOAL

PERSONALITY

Brooding and ruthless. Bond has no illusions about what his job requires. Having been betrayed once he is slow to open himself up to new relationships. He is cynical about the motives of others and finds it difficult to trust his superiors.

BACKGROUND

Returned to Earth in the 21st century with no memory of who he was, beyond his name, Bond was discovered at an estate in the Scottish highlands that he had purchased in an earlier incarnation. He had no memory of his past career and believed his fake history to be true.

MI6 tentatively rehired him, treating him as a new agent and forcing him to re-qualify for his 00 status. They also took steps to conceal his past service record, not only to conceal his identity from the enemy but to prevent Bond himself from learning his nature.

This incarnation of Bond continues to question his identity and purpose. In the space of only a few years he has been through several traumatic experiences and it is believed that he will likely retire from the intelligence service.
