The Professor was what The Master called himself while under the influence of the fob watch, when he hid himself at the end of the universe. Unlike the master, the professor had a kind nature, liked looking out for others, and he was building a rocket that would launch them to Utopia. The professor says in Utopia that he doesnt know much about himself, just that he was found lay naked as a boy on a beach, wih only the watch. But it hasnt worked since he had it, and he cant even open it. Now that it had been baught to his attention, and he could see it, he could hear it talking to him, and The Masters nasty natured side was calling him names, and telling him to open it.
