The Ribos Operation
Within a nightmare produced by the Celestial Toymaker, the Doctor saw that of the group,
Ushas (later known as the Rani), Vansell and Rallon had nearly completed their courses. Rallon was, however, at some point, taken over by the Celestial Toymaker.
Millennia was forcibly made part of the Celestial Toyroom. The Master (then named Koschei), the Monk (then known as Mortimus), the Rani (formerly known as Ushas), the War Chief (originally Magnus), Drax, and the First Doctor eventually took up lives as renegade Time Lords.
Jelpax and Vansell went on to hold down conventional roles in Time Lord society. ( PROSE: )

Coordinator of the APC Net and the latter went on to head the Celestial Intervention Agency.
Of the members in the nightmare, only Drax, Theta, "Koschei", Mortimus, and Ushas were elsewhere confirmed to have been members. (
