    Dalek Sec 

Former Dalek Supreme of the Cult of Skaro, former Dalek Hybrid, and formerly deceased. Arrives in the Puella Magi'verse with absolutely no explanation, and is now trapped in the same Stable Time Loop as Homura. Irritable, and prone to backfiring Mad Science. Was once the executive officer of the Dalek Inquisitor General, and was promoted for surviving five consecutive missions under his command.

  • Angrish: His fourth attempt at playing Dwarf Fortress results in this.
  • Beam Spam: Why yes, the Dalek Death Ray does have an autofire function.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: He's a decent guy for a Dalek, but he's still a Dalek.
  • Cosmic Plaything: And he knows it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: At least, as deadpan as you can get while screaming.
  • Epic Fail: A result of his plans running with Refuge in Audacity is that when they backfire, they backfire hard.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Sec tends to view wanton destruction as wasteful.
  • For Science!: His motivation for a lot of stuff. Sec likes to know how things work, and the harder something is to figure out the more rewarding he views it.
  • Four-Star Badass: Word of God has it that the title of "Supreme" basically equates to that of a General. So far, the only thing that has managed to hurt him was Krimehild Gretchen. And even then, his response consisted more of impotent rage.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Subverted. While he has turned his back on the Daleks' usual psychopathy, he's still a robot-alien-Nazi.
  • Large Ham: Literally never stops screaming. Even when he whispers. Somehow.
  • No Indoor Voice: At one point, Homura cuts the connection between her body and her Soul Gem. She's cut off from all senses, including hearing, yet she can still hear him.
  • Mad Scientist: Very much so. He's currently aiming to take advantage of Sayaka going Witch using Dalek Science.
  • Old Soldier: All Daleks are warriors and Sec is a very, very old Dalek. Considered a sign of prowess by their species given that they're at war with basically everything.
  • The Older Immortal: While Homura is very old for a human, old enough to have stopped keeping track, she's a child compared to Sec.
  • Rage Against The Creator
  • Really 700 Years Old: Claims to be 250,000 years old.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Primary tactic against everything.
  • Sociopathic Hero: Not as bad as most Daleks, who tend to be outright genocidal, but he's still pretty crazy by our standards.
  • Unstoppable Rage: He's a Dalek, so this comes naturally.

    The Dalek Inquisitor General 

The most cruel, ruthless, and terrifying Dalek in the Empire. Was Sec's commander for five consecutive missions. Scares other Daleks.

  • Bad Boss: To the point that Sec got promoted to Dalek Supreme, a position usually reserved for specially-bred Daleks, simply by surviving five missions under his command.
  • The Dreaded: Even the other Daleks are terrified of the General. He was teleported onto a Dalek Battle Saucer filled with the new 2010, post-Time War Daleks. He's a pre-Time War Dalek. No shields, vulnerable to physical attack, and much weaker than the new models. The General manages to destroy them all without firing a single shot. His next task? Conquering the rest of the fleets.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Not the General himself, but for all other Daleks in regards to him. You know he's crossed a few lines when the Daleks, the poster child of Omnicidal Mania, are more scared of him than the Doctor.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": "Dalek Inquisitor General" is actually only his title and function. His first appearance gave his actual name: Dalek X.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Word of God says that being assigned to his command is considered this by Daleks.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: To the point that even the other Daleks are scared of him.

    Homura Akemi 
"Madoka saved me...and one day, I'll return the favor."

Time-Traveling Magical Zombie/Lich. So old she can't even remember what her father looked like, and basically the same person as she was in Canon.


How well does it match the trope?
