Coordinator Engin worked in the Archives on Gallifrey.
Like all Time Lords, Engin was taken from his family at the age of eight for the selection process in the Drylands. Staring into the Untempered Schism as part of a Time Lord initiation rite, Engin was inspired by what he saw in the Schism. (A Brief History of Time Lords)
After Niroc became President, another Time Lord was appointed as Keeper of the Matrix, prompting the Sixth and Eighth Doctors to select Engin when arranging an inquiry in the Sixth Doctor‘s trial, reasoning that he might be old but he possessed a clearer knowledge of the Matrix than any other. (The Eight Doctors)
Engin was still Keeper of the Matrix during the Last Great Time War. He spoke with Priyan about The Doctor’s actions and how the War would end. (Sky Jacks)
