 The Spiral Politic, though difficult to define and describe, was essentially like a map, or list, of all the Time Aware cultures and societies in the universe. Time Lord society became jaded and corrupt, stagnant and voyeuristic. The Time Lords merely observed rather than influenced the universe, but if any society rose to develop the technology to explore and possibly contaminate the time-stream they were immediately put down by the Great Houses of the Time Lords. The Spiral Politic, though difficult to define and describe, was essentially like a map, or list, of all the Time Aware cultures and societies in the universe.

-The Great Houses of the Time Lords held jurisdiction over the length of linear time, considered themselves superior to all other lesser" ​life-forms, and acted within the realm of age old protocols handed down from the time a Rassilon, the great leader who made Time Travel possible. Rassilon entered a black hole, the Eye of Harmony, created by fugitive Omega'​s collapse of a supernova. Rassilion captured the Eye of Harmony and stored it under the Time Lord Panopticon, granting the Time Lords an unlimited resource of temporal power. He also created the Rassilon Imprimature,​ a symbiotic nucleus within the genetic structure of Time Lords to allow them to withstand the perpetual molecular destabilization caused by excessive Time Travel."+The Great Houses of the Time Lords held jurisdiction over the length of linear time, considered themselves superior to all other lesser life-forms, and acted within the realm of age old protocols handed down from the time a Rassilon, the great leader who made Time Travel possible.

 It was held that the Great Houses of Gallifrey were responsible for many of the physical laws that governed the universe and the fabric of space-time, these laws were in actuality extensions of the Great Houses. Existing prior to any other great societies, they took it as their right to establish the structural history of the universe. To declare war against the Great Houses would be to declare war upon a color, or gravity, or any other such physical law. It was held that the Great Houses of Gallifrey were responsible for many of the physical laws that governed the universe and the fabric of space-time, these laws were in actuality extensions of the Great Houses.

-House Paradox arose as an affront to the legacy of the Great Houses. Theirs was a pro-active stance, attempting to mangle and corrupt the timelines, to subvert the powers of the ruling elite. At a time when the Time Lords considered themselves immortal and immutable, House Paradox mockingly celebrated death" ​in a sort of perverse carnival. Their armor was less functional and more emblematic, decorated to venerate skulls, bones and other such emblems of death."+House Paradox arose as an affront to the legacy of the Great Houses.

Their armor was less functional and more emblematic, decorated to venerate skulls, bones and other such emblems of death.
  
-Abandoning the prestige of the Great Houses, House Paradox came to be known as the Faction Paradox", an outlaw group of renegades who caused the ultimate sacrilege by making no excuse for recruiting impure aliens, most of them criminals and madmen, into their ranks. Faction Paradox resorted to subterfuge, to recruiting lesser species and acting in deliberate affronts to the self-obsessed divinity of the Time Lords."+Abandoning the prestige of the Great Houses, House Paradox came to be known as the Faction Paradox, an outlaw group of renegades who caused the ultimate sacrilege by making no excuse for recruiting impure aliens, most of them criminals and madmen, into their ranks.

-Faction Paradox were fashioned after the grandfather paradox", the time old theory that going back in time to kill your grandfather would, through causality, avert your own existence. But Faction agents wouldn'​t be erased, they would remain an existing impossibility,​ living temporal paradoxes made flesh. They likened themselves in the image of a literal Grandfather Paradox, part myth and part real, a being who they considered as great a founding figure as Rassilon himself."+Faction Paradox were fashioned after the grandfather paradox, the time old theory that going back in time to kill your grandfather would, through causality, avert your own existence.

 Having created the Faction, the Grandfather was considered a criminal of the highest order, and that his arm was branded by the Time Lords. Grandfather Paradox was thought to have severed his own arm, essentially severing his ties to the Time Lords. Faction society was built on a family outline, new inductees being brothers"​ or "​sisters",​ most members known as "​cousins",​ and the Grandfather at the top of the ladder."​ Having created the Faction, the Grandfather was considered a criminal of the highest order, and that his arm was branded by the Time Lords.

 The Great Houses relied upon the technological,​ they practiced pure science, mathematics and studied the universe under the fundamental laws of physics. Their reliance on technology spilt into their entire culture, a tribute to the scientific accomplishments of Rassilion and his like. Faction Paradox revolted, achieving the impossible, glorifying blood and chaos and things that were impossible under the physical laws of the universe. The Great Houses relied upon the technological,​ they practiced pure science, mathematics and studied the universe under the fundamental laws of physics.

-The Grandfather learned how to re-structure and re-format Time against the physical laws established by science and the Great Houses. Faction Paradox venerated ritual above technology, and though their methods were not purely within the realm of magic", strong similarities can be understood between the way human voodoo-cults communicate with "​Spirits"​ and the way Faction ritualists communicate with the body of time itself."+The Grandfather learned how to re-structure and re-format Time against the physical laws established by science and the Great Houses.

 On September the fourteenth, 1752, the English lost eleven days out of their calendar to conform to the calendars of the rest of Europe. Though Britain was, at the time, the most significant nation on the planet Earth, they were still operating under the old Julian calendar which had been out dated by the Papal states who went by the more accurate Gregorian calendar. Recognizing the necessity of a safehouse for the Faction, Grandfather Paradox purchased the lost days from George II under the Gregorian Compact. On September the fourteenth, 1752, the English lost eleven days out of their calendar to conform to the calendars of the rest of Europe.

 He also met Homunculate,​ a future Time Lord, whose companion, Marie, opened up and revealed herself to be a living, sentient Type 103 TARDIS. The Doctor learned of the future War, a galactic struggle in which the Time Lords were fighting an unknown Enemy. Faction Paradox and the Celestis were both heavily involved. He also met Homunculate,​ a future Time Lord, whose companion, Marie, opened up and revealed herself to be a living, sentient Type 103 TARDIS.

-The Celestis were the evolved members of Gallifrey'​s Celestial Intervention Agency. In the future, they realized a time-active conflict would not only destroy the Time Lords but would likely create a new version of the Spiral Politic that would erase them from all existence. Terrified and aware of their own mortality, the CIA removed themselves from the fabric of space-time as a precaution", abandoning the material plane and evolving to exist as pure ideas. The Celestis made their home in Mictlan, a name that means "land of the dead" in South American. It was an asphyxiating hell, a realm made of pure perception, inhabited by non-corporal Celestis who depended on lesser life-forms for occasional physicality."+The Celestis were the evolved members of Gallifrey'​s Celestial Intervention Agency.

-The Doctor also met the Shift, a once living being made into a conceptual entity under a state of temporal flux. The Shift only existed as a series of memetic connections,​ only the meaning" ​of the original host existed, but nothing of the material. The Shift communicated by re-arranging letters on documents, or entering into a victim'​s brain.

 The Doctor discovered that these various groups had gathered to auction the Relic, a sacred object thought to have powerful enough Biodata to finish the War. Biodata was the living essence of a person, not so much their DNA as a list of experiences. Your choices and actions were recorded into your Biodata. The Relic, he discovered, was his own future corpse, regeneration unknown. The Doctor had, at some future time, promised the Celestis his body in return for the non-interference in the Time Lord War on the planet Dronid. They agreed, but sought to modify terms, wanting his living body immediately. The Shift, meanwhile, implanted itself inside his mind, and the Shift, not the Doctor, was imprinted into becoming a Celestis pawn. The Doctor discovered that these various groups had gathered to auction the Relic, a sacred object thought to have powerful enough Biodata to finish the War.

 Faction Paradox also sought to make the Doctor their agent. Killing his Third incarnation on the plant Dust prior to his historical death after fighting giant spiders, the Doctor'​s time-stream became a paradox and he was imprinted as Faction. Faction Paradox also sought to make the Doctor their agent.

-The Doctor began to discover that his companion, Sam Jones, had been prepared to be the perfect companion to him. Her Biodata had been restructured so that she had two complete sets, Sam and Dark Sam", a drug addicted bad girl who came out while the Doctor, and new companion Fitz Kreiner, were fighting an temporal scar in San Francisco. Sam eventually became the time-adjusted good version, and after many more tragic adventures retired to Earth as the ward of the Doctor'​s past companion Sarah Jane Smith."+The Doctor began to discover that his companion, Sam Jones, had been prepared to be the perfect companion to him.

-Fitz was the next companion to be affected by Faction Paradox. When the Doctor left Fitz under the care of the United Nations, rogue agents mistrusted him and put him into suspended animation until the 26th Century, when he was revived by Faction Paradox. Fitz, conscripted into their ranks, where he spent most of his time in the Eleven Day Empire, growing strong as their agent with a growing hatred and desire for revenge at the Doctor, who abandoned him. He eventually became Father Kreiner", a top level Faction Agent. Father Kreiner finally met the Third Doctor on Dust, but a force of nature known as "​Number Thirteen"​ caused him to lose an arm and get thrown into the Time Vortex."+Fitz was the next companion to be affected by Faction Paradox.

-Within a bottle universe, Father Kreiner came up against Christine Summerfield,​ a genetic heir of the Doctor'​s companion Bernice, and the Doctor'​s former companion Chris Cwej, now an agent for the Time Lords. Before his death, Father Kreiner begged the Doctor to retroactively pick him up before any of this happened. Not wishing to create paradox, the Doctor refused.

-The Time Lords took Chris Cwej and adjusted his memory so that he had forgotten the Doctor and remembered only an Evil Renegade" ​who got him involved in temporal issues. He had been enhanced by the Rassilion Imprimature,​ a healing factor with Time Lord DNA, making him more time-active. When the Time Lords messed with his DNA to the extent he became a short, fat, middle-aged man, Cwej became more sulky and less reliable to them. It was decided his Biodata should be used to reproduce him into a new Cwej, though this met with extremity and an entire army of "​Cwejen"​ were constructed."+The Time Lords took Chris Cwej and adjusted his memory so that he had forgotten the Doctor and remembered only an Evil Renegade who got him involved in temporal issues.

 The Doctor'​s companion Compassion was instrumental in the events leading up to the War. Laura Tobin was a member of the Remote, a Faction Paradox splinter group regarded as the barbarians of the Spiral Politic. They were the non-Gallifreyan recruits to Faction Paradox, exposed to Faction temporal techniques and technology, delighting in icons and totems of death. The Remote were connected by auditory implants and formed a collective of dangerous agents, feared because they were reckless and would jump sides. The Doctor'​s companion Compassion was instrumental in the events leading up to the War.

-Spending her mortal life on the Remote outpost Anathema, Tobin believed morality and politics were wasteful, that principles and morality were the downfall of society. Remote Agents were constantly replacing their original selves through a memory-sensitive biomass imprinting system. Tobin became Compassion", dubbed so by Fitz as her unique stand on non-morality and dependence on Remote "​Signals"​ actually made her more "​connected"​ to others. In the TARDIS, her malleable Remote DNA began taking in data from the TARDIS, until she became one with it's temporal engineering and trans-dimensional engineering,​ rebuilding her into a living sentient TARDIS."+Spending her mortal life on the Remote outpost Anathema, Tobin believed morality and politics were wasteful, that principles and morality were the downfall of society.

 When the Doctor'​s original TARDIS was destroyed, he and Fitz entered Compassion and she was both companion and time-space machine in one. While Marie, the Type 103, was a similar living humanoid TARDIS of the future, Compassion was the first, a Type 102, and Gallifrey'​s militant President Romana insisted on harnessing and replicating her to create an army of future sentient TARDISes. The Doctor refused to let his companion be enslaved, and the Doctor, Fitz and Compassion became hunted outlaws. When the Doctor'​s original TARDIS was destroyed, he and Fitz entered Compassion and she was both companion and time-space machine in one.
