     The Second Empire 

Xenol/The Emperor of the Second Empire/The Renegade Emperor

Black Dalek general of the 1st Conquest Army.


Chief scientist attached to Xenol's staff.

  • Absent-Minded Professor: And somehow, the Daleks themselves consider him a Mad Scientist of the worst kind. Justified.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being incredibly eccentric by Dalek standards he comes up with inventions that surpass anything produced by Dalek science.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He has a rather... loose hold on reality.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: He can create enything from teleporters to invisible paint, new armor and weaponry and sonar systems.
  • Super Soldier:A rather odd example, he has DNA from Davros, which explains his genius, and his eccentricity.


Xenol's Second in Command.


Saucer commander in the Dalek space fleet. Usually acts as pilot for Xenol and also commands the Second Empire's space forces.

  • Ace Pilot: Anzollo manages to outfly combat hoverbouts in a ground attack gunship and hides from a battlesaucer by putting his ship in a blindspot that is only slightly larger than his ship.
  • Explosive Overclocking: He abuses his ship and ultimately destroys its gravitic lens to destroy dozens of attacking First Empire battlesaucers.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • Improbable Piloting Skills: To give Xenol's plan to cripple the battlesaucer a better chance of success Anzollo flips his ship upside down so the tail ramp opens upwards towards the saucer's belly.


Second In Comand of the 3rd Conquest Army. First to proclaim Xenol emperor after the latter exterminates Xyml.

    The First Empire 

Xanzathix/The Golden Emperor/Golden Tyrant

The Golden Emperor. Absolute ruler of the First Dalek Empire.

  • Big Bad: Relatively speaking given that all the main characters are Daleks.
  • Bling of War: His entire casing is made of gold.
  • Composite Character: Word of God has it that he's based on the Golden Emperor from the comics, but also has elements from the Dalek Emperor of the New Series.
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: All he wants is absolute power above the Daleks. Given Davros has noted he's entirely uninterested in returning to his can, the conflict between them both is shaping for another Dalek Civil War.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Releasing Davros and giving him a Dalek life-extending shell turns out not to be such a good idea when Davros decides Xanzathix is not leading the empire well and bends the loyalty of the Golden Emperors empire to himself and has Xanzathrix exterminated.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Reveals that he was Xenol's primary gene donor, while they're fighting with laser shivs. Xenol continues the Shout-Out for another panel then decides it doesn't matter.
  • We Can Rule Together: Offers this to Xenol. He's... uninterested.
  • We Have Reserves: He sends the older model Daleks as fodder against the Second Empire in a brutal Zerg Rush.


Black Dalek general of the Imperial Legion.

  • Armchair Military
  • Bling of War: He's not really that much flashier than many of other Daleks, though he does have a very shiney casing with some gold marbling around the mid section, however his gun has an extra power cable that's obviously designed to mimic an aiguillette which combined with his attitude takes him into this trope.
    • He's very proud of his casing, as seen when the heat of the mines that destroy the Legion burns away much of the paint job, and he stops to complain.
  • Dirty Coward: The moment he realizes he and the Legion have stepped into a huge minefield in a narrow ravine with thousands of snipers above, he devolves into this, trying to slime his way into Xenol's graces. He fails. Miserably.
  • Fat Bastard: Implied when it's revealed he refuses to follow the serving machine's dietary recommendations and instead has his aide serve him kwalorblmn.
  • General Failure: He is sent to invade a rebellious planet. Instead of instantly ordering recon, he plans to march all guns blazing. He then somehow manages to have his entire fighting force destroyed, having dealt next to no damage to the enemy.
  • Hollywood Tactics: Leading from the front lines. And somehow missing the spectacular trap he's fallen into.
  • Jerkass
  • The Neidermeyer: As seen with the reporter from Skaro, he's mostly concerned about he's going to look for the cameras.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He barely survived the minefield that killed the Legion, with heavy damage to his travel machine. He then stops to gloat about his survival, and is frozen into place by the sound of several dozen Special Weapons Daleks locking into his position.


Black Dalek general of the 3rd Conquest Army.

  • General Failure: Oh so very much. Observe:
    General Xyml has not proved a popular commander. Since he took over the Third has seen little glory and his campaign against the Sentient Seaweeds of Agwatikka 2 showed him to be an uninspired leader, winning scant respect from his troops.

Yarvelling Davros

Creator of the Daleks and Omnidisciplinary Scientist for the First Dalek Empire.
