Creating the Doom Coalition Edit
Upon taking the office of Lord Cardinal in the High Council, Padrac used his newfound access to the Matrix to "see what surprises tomorrow held". He discovered that in almost every projection of Gallifrey's future, it was destroyed. Gallifrey could only survive if it was the only planet in existence, any other outcome would eventually result in the extinction of the Time Lords.
When the Seventh Doctor apprehended the Eleven, Padrac interrupted the Doctor while the Eleven was being put into cold-stasis and informed him that Lady President Romana II required him. (AUDIO: The Eleven)
Unleashing the Coalition Edit
Padrac was a Cardinal on Gallifrey when the Eighth Doctor was brought in to catch the Eleven. He said that he was the more adventurous one out of him and the Doctor, but he was the one to stay on Gallifrey. (AUDIO: The Eleven)
After the Nine appeared on the Crucible of Souls, he ordered Veklin to stay behind and took River Song to Gallifrey. He told River Song that even without his plans, there would have been a Time War. He made his plans known to the Council. (AUDIO: Songs of Love)
He placed Caleera in the Resonance Engine in order to get her to destroy the universe. He later captured the Doctor to be part of his plans. After Caleera decided to destroy the engine, he was imprisoned and saw the Red Lady. (AUDIO: Stop the Clock)
