Grandfather Halfling was the founder of House Halfling. An individual of mixed human and Homeworlder parentage, he worked in the City of the Saved to improve conditions and political rights for partially-human individuals in the City.

Biography Edit

Grandfather Halfling was present during the founding of the City of the Saved and was an old friend of its creator Compassion. Halfling was only permitted to enter the city because of his half-human, half-Great Houses lineage.

In the city the Grandfather founded House Halfling, which campaigned for the rights of part-humans, who were treated as an underclass. Halfling recruited his old friend Amanda Legend Lefcourt to represent the House in the Chamber of Residents while the Grandfather himself would often leave the city to participate in the War. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

It was implied that Grandfather Halfling once took Melicia Clutterbuck outside of the city to share adventures with him. (PROSE: Of the City of the Saved...)

Like every other Citizen, Grandfather Halfling was re-resurrected when the City of the Saved was restored after Compassion's death. (PROSE: God Encompasses)

Behind the scenes Edit

Grandfather Halfling may be the version of the Doctor resurrected in the City of the Saved after his death in Alien Bodies. His half-humanity (as indicated in the Doctor Who TV movie and Unnatural History), sense of social justice, and connection with Compassion support this, but it is never made explicit.
