Valyes was a Lord Cardinal of Gallifrey who was chosen by the High Council to be acting Chancellor to replace Braxiatel. (BFG: Insurgency) As Chancellor he ran the Time Lord Academy but quickly revoked many of the privileges given by his predecessor to off-worlders.

During the Civil War he sided with the Imperiatrix Pandora and Inquisitor Darkel. Following the former's defeat at the hands of Romana and Leela, he assumed the presidency as he was the next highest ranking Time Lord as there was no Vice President, he made Lord Matthias Lord Cardinal with special security responsibilities and later resigned as Acting Lord President due to the machinations of Darkel whom he named as his successor.

During the following election Valyes was the Lord High Returning Officer, however his moment of glory was cut short by the arrival and return of Braxiatel, who claimed the Presidency for himself and then named Lord Cardinal Matthias as his successor.

Valyes then served as Lord Chancellor to President Matthias.

Valyes was a member of the old guard on Gallifrey and was very old fashioned and opposed to change. He proved himself to be easily manipulated by those more clever than him, especially Darkel, and he was also obsequious in the extreme. Valyes seemed to be a born politician who would use the law to suit his own purpose, however he appeared to have more faith in his own ability than others did, and this faith was misplaced.
