Second Incarnation

Galen's second incarnation was born from an act of heroic self-sacrifice which saved billions of lives. When a faction of the Time Lord High Council tried to destroy an inhabited star system, in order to alter the course of history and aid the Rutans in their battle against the Sontarans, Galen gave his first life to stop them. The scheme came terrifyingly close to succeeding; it was only the help of his second incarnation, crossing his time line to create his own future, which allowed the first Galen to defeat it.

He gained powerful enemies in the process. The Time Lord Councillors responsible for the scheme had been acting illegally; such blatant interference in the time line, with such genocidal consequences, would have led to their exile at best and execution at worst. They dared not take the chance that Galen might be recaptured by the Time Lords and reveal the truth. They knew that they would never be safe until he was dead. Their efforts to hunt him down were hampered by the untraceable nature of Galen's TARDIS and their inability to use official resources to pursue him, but they made up for that with a determination born of desperation.

Personality

Motivations/Desires/Goals

Although older and wiser than his first incarnation, Galen's objectives haven't really changed - they could essentially be summed up as "have fun and help people", although "and stay off the Time Lords' radar" is an important addendum.

Manner

Cheerful, friendly, and sometimes a little bit boisterous, this Galen is protective big brother for those who need help, and a boon companion for those who just want to sit down and have a few beers. His formidable intelligence and tremendous technical skills are rarely apparent at first glance. Many of his opponents have underestimated and disregarded him after seeing him happily wading into the thick of a bar brawl, or performing (very bad) beer-fuelled Karaoke - usually much to their later regret.

Traits
 
Adversary
Lord Velkrin, an agent of the Time Lord Council faction who tried to ally with the Rutan Host, has been tasked with eliminating him.
Attractive
He's traded the youthful, Hispanic good looks of his first incarnation for the rugged appeal of a tall, muscular Viking with long red hair.
Boffin
He's learned that building a gadget isn't the best solution to every problem, but he's still very good at building them when he needs to.
Charming
The taciturn nerdishness of his first incarnation has been replaced by a hail-fellow-well-met friendliness and cheerfulness.
Code of Conduct (Minor)
He's outgrown his youthful need to prove to the universe that he's not just another scheming, perfidious Time Lord, but his personal ethics haven't really changed - do unto others as you would have them do unto you, be honest with people, and offer help to those who need it.
Distinctive
He's six foot three inches tall, muscular, and has long hair in a particularly vivid shade of red. Go figure.
Impulsive
If anything, he's even less inclined to plan ahead than he was in his first incarnation
Wanted Renegade
In an unofficial sort of way. He's being hunted by Gallifrey, anyway, even if most of the Time Lord government is blissfully unaware that he survived.
Run for your Life
Galen's been chased by human gangsters, alien gangsters, Daleks, Sontarans, and selfie-obsessed fans at science-fiction conventions. None of them have caught him. Yet
Technically Adept/
Time Lord Engineer
His second incarnation might be far more of a people person than his first, but not at the expense of his technical skills, which have developed enormously aftar a century and a half of experiencing the wider universe.
Time Lord (Experienced)
It's been a School of Hard Knocks, but he's packed more experience into four hundred years than some Time Lords manage in four thousand.
Time Traveller
He's gained a lot of hands-on experience with Tech Levels 5-7.
Equipment
Type 49 TARDIS (uses the stats for a Decommissioned TARDIS from the Time Traveller's Companion), sonic screwdriver, enhanced K9 unit (Gwyllgi)
