|Race:||Gallifreyan (Time Lord)|
|Home Era:||Rassilon Era|
He decided that he liked to meddle with history, specifically the history of Earth, and to change it for his own amusement and for what he considered to be the better. He leant mechanical assistance to the builders of Stonehenge and gave Leonardo da Vinci tips on aircraft design. At the time that the Doctor, encountered him, the Monk attempted to prevent the Norman Conquest of 1066 as part of a plan to guide England into an age of technological prosperity. On that occasion he wore the guise of a monk in order to gain the trust of the locals, hence the name by which he is most often referred.
The Monk was at this time a well-meaning but childish man who was not half as clever as he thought he was, and who never seemed to realise the seriousness of what he was doing. The Doctor sabotaged the dimensional circuit of Mortimus' TARDIS, making it the same size inside as outside, reducing the interior to dollhouse proportions.(DW: The Time Meddler)
The Doctor encountered him again on the volcanic planet Tigus, where Mortimus sabotaged the lock on The Doctor's TARDIS, though that did not stop him from getting inside. The Doctor stole Mortimus' direction controls in order that he could use it himself as part of his effort to stop the Daleks.
Mortimus' TARDIS landed in ancient Egypt. Having heard of the Daleks, the Monk went along with their plans, in order to avoid being exterminated himself, while trying without success to convince the Doctor and his companions of his honourable nature. While there, the Doctor tinkered with the chameleon circuit from Mortimus' TARDIS, making it assume various shapes, finally that of a police box. He stole its partially compatible directional unit, leaving Mortimus stranded in a cold, icy location planet. (DW: The Daleks' Master Plan)
Mortimus then teamed up with the Ice Warriors and battled the Doctor in a complex scheme involving alternative Earths and a plan to build a giant sonic weapon. Mortimus now preferred his own TARDIS to appear as a police box, did not wear a monk's habit, and referred to himself as the Time Meddler. (DWM: 4-Dimensional Vistas)
At some point in the 21st century, the Monk tried to rig elections in what might have been the United States to stop President Sintatra from winning a third term of office. As he began this mission, he landed his TARDIS on a busy freeway. The Sleeze Brothers, El Ape and Deadbeat, collided into it, causing significant damage to their vehicle. At the same time, the companion-less Doctor landed his TARDIS in the same area.
Besieged by both angry brothers and an irate Doctor, the Monk slipped back into his TARDIS and took off. The Brothers then hijacked the Doctor's TARDIS at gunpoint and ordered him to follow the Monk's TARDIS through time. A chase ensued, and the two TARDISes flitted through time to several famous mysteries in Earth's history. Eventually, the Doctor and the Sleeze Brothers caused the Monk's TARDIS to implode, which apparently caused the creation of the Bermuda Triangle. How, when, or if the Monk reconstituted his TARDIS wasn't clear. (DWM: "Follow that TARDIS!)"
Mortimus then created a series of alternate timelines (NA: Blood Heat, The Dimension Riders, The Left-Handed Hummingbird, Conundrum) in a scheme employing the Chronovore Artemis. Mortimus now used his real name and posed as a 1976 record executive in England. He had also, at this time, served as the Champion of the Eternal Death in the same way that the Doctor served as Champion of Time. In so doing, he had made himself servant to a being much more powerful and intelligent than himself. Mortimus aided the Vardans' scheme to avenge themselves on the Doctor and the Sontarans by conquering Earth, a planet of continued strategic value to the Sontarans and obviously important to the Doctor. His plan was undone thanks to the Doctor's companion Ace, who pretended to side with him until she could free Artemis. The vengeful Artemis subsequently took Mortimus away to make him pay for her imprisonment. (NA: No Future)
The Monk has the distinction of being the first Gallifreyan other than the Doctor and Susan to be seen in the series. (During The Daleks' Master Plan, the Daleks actually seem to refer to the Doctor and the Monk as "humans", though they may simply use the term loosely.) The name Time Lord would not appear until The War Games, however.
There was for some time speculation that the Monk was actually an earlier regeneration of The Master or the War Chief, who appeared in The War Games. This is stated as fact in The Doctor Who Role Playing Game, which tended to create its own continuity. However, this theory has been contradicted by the Monk's appearances in novels and comics.

A monk is a member of a religious order, typically an individual who takes on vows and lives their lives to rules decreed by their religion.
In 2369 an away team from the USS Enterprise-D encountered a group of monks from a Dracon monastery on the planet Riat. These monks had been poisoned by algae in their water supply which made them cannibalistic and more aggressive than usual. The monks attacked the way team, who only just escaped. Once the away team were rescued Doctor Beverly Crusher was able to cure the monks of their ailment. (TNG comic: "Light of the Day")

Monks are characterized primarily by their affinity for fighting entirely bare-handed. The few weapons they do use consist of claws and knuckles that strap onto their hands. Despite their preference to fight without weapons, Monks can deal just as much damage in battle as any other physical class like Warriors or Dragoons, thanks to their massive physical strength. Monks wear light clothing consisting of robes and hats, and cannot equip heavy armor. To make up for this lack of protection, Monks have a very high amount of HP compared to other classes. Because of the minimal use of armor and weaponry, Monks are one of the cheapest classes to maintain and require little investment in new equipment. Monk abilities include Kick, which damages all enemies, Chakra, which heals the Monk and/or their allies, and they can increase their attack strength with the usage of Focus or Boost. Monks are also able to counter physical attacks, and in later games have individual skillsets of various special techniques.
The Monk is a physical attacker available at the beginning at the game. Eventually, the class can be upgraded to Master. Final Fantasy is notable for allow Monks to equip nunchucks, one of the few games where Monks use weapons besides claws and knuckles.
The Monk is a class obtained from the Wind Crystal and specializes in hand-to-hand combat, equipping gloves and claws for battle. A more powerful version called the Black Belt can be obtained from the Earth Crystal.
Yang Fang Leiden appears as the first named Monk in the series, and hails from Fabul, a nation renown for their ranks of warrior monks. Several NPCs in Fabul appear as Monks, and Yang is fought as a boss under the name "Monk" during the game.
Yang returns as a Monk, and is joined by his daughter Ursula. Three other Monks are also temporary party members. They are labeled as Monk A, Monk B, and Monk C and all share the same abilities.
The Monk is a Job class that is obtained from a shard of the Wind Crystal. It specializes in barehanded combat and has high Attack power.
Sabin Rene Figaro appears as a Monk, and is a student to a martial arts master named Duncan, who also trained his son Vargas. Sabin uses the Blitz skillset, which lets him perform various attacks if the player inputs the proper button commands.
Tifa Lockhart is a Monk trained by Zangan, and the first female Monk. Her Limit Breaks consist of various physical attacks that increase in strength if the player properly stops a series of slot wheels.
Monks are able to use bare-handed attacks as always, but also utilize Poles and White Magic, as well as a number of Technicks. Their License Board has sixteen Battle Lores and twelve HP Lores, more than any other Job.
Snow Villiers fights enemies bare-handed in the style of a Monk. He does not equip Claws of Knuckles; instead, he equips Coats that augment his strength.
Monk is available as an off-shoot from a Level 3 Knight.
The White Monk is a Bangaa-exclusive class. It uses a combination of physical attacks and spiritual powers to battle.
The White Monk makes a second appearance in this game. A new Job called the Master Monk is also available, and is arguably the most powerful melee class in the game.
In the Duel Colosseum, when selected, the Monk Job Card will cause the next battle cards that arrive to the selection area to be weaker.

The Monk indisputably possesses the strongest ability for healing other characters. Divine Favor adds a healing buff to all Monk spells, as well as improve the Monk's overall effectiveness. Healing Prayers are generally used for direct healing, as well as indirect healing-over-time. Protection Prayers is the attribute of choice for reducing and even preventing damage. Smiting Prayers allow Monks to deal damage to enemies - especially effective against the undead. The patron goddess of Monks is Dwayna, with the exception of smite Monks who are devoted to Balthazar.
The Monk is widely considered the heart of a party so it is very common for them to be primary targets.
The Monk's primary attribute is Divine Favor, which provides additional healing to each Monk spell.

A Monk is a non-player character usually found in monasteries, churches, and the island of Entrana. Monks will heal players by some of their Hitpoints if the player talks to them. Monks are useful for training at lower combat levels, as players can talk to another monk and ask him to heal the player.
Contrary to popular belief, monks do not drop the monk robes many players use. Instead, monk robes spawn on a table in the upper floor of the Monastery.
