I know, I know, using X for the Daleks is kind of a cheat, but there’s nothing to be done about it now. I don’t have a TARDIS. Not even a vortex manipulator.
The Daleks are the most classic, time-tested rogue in the gallery. They are the reason there are so few time lords. And they have killed more life forms than any other species in know existence.
Daleks are known for their lack of compassion or any feelings at all. They’re so skewed in their way of thinking that the only thing they deem to be truly beautiful is hatred.
It’s been said more than once that the thing they appreciate about their biggest enemy, the Doctor, is his capacity for hate. What they fail to realize is that his hate is pretty much reserved for them and them alone because they’re such crap weasels.
Conical shaped, with various plunger-like things sticking off their metal bodies, they don’t look fearsome. They look a like a middle-grader tried to make a robotic servant out of a trash can and an old vacuum. But their weaponry is second to none and can kill a human in a blink.
Or course, most of that body is just armor. The real Daleks are inside. Small, pink, slimy little things that could be a cross between a squid and a brain. They’re fragile in that form. I imagine a heavy boot heel would do them in.
The race was created on a far off planet called Skaro. War waged there long enough that no one could remember why they were fighting. A man named Davros invented the Daleks in order to stop the fighting, by creating a side that would win.
The Doctor once had a chance to let Davros die as a child but, as we all know, that’s just not his style. Despite the kindness shown, Davros never once considered turning away from the Daleks, his children, and doing some actual good in the world. But he’s dead now (hopefully for good), so good riddance.
There’s a lot to cover when it comes to the Daleks, but in the interest of not boring anyone to death, I’ll call it here.
Feel free to add in the things I’ve missed in the comments. EXTERMINATE!
