A Dalek drone of the Restoration Empire was the instigator of the bootstrap paradox of the Empire's involvement in the Kotturuh crisis. The drone was in operation on Skaro when the Emperor of the Restoration received a message from the drone's future self, prompting the Emperor to put the drone on the Dalek Time Squad.

After going to the Dark Times, the Dalek drone was left broken and drifting through space for many millennia, where it eventually partially repaired itself through sheer determination. Thinking itself the last survivor, it transmitted a warning to the universe about the Tenth Doctor; the very same message that made the Emperor send the Time Squad back to the Dark Times.

Brooke found it in the Oort cloud, and decided to use him for its own end. It got Brooke to create a Machine to first create a new gun and to create new Daleks. It was frozen in ice, but eventually escaped when it learnt that the Fourth Doctor knew of his presence. It used the humans in cryogenic suspension to create a new batch of Dalek Mutants. It told the Doctor about its previous encounters with the Eighth Doctor when he destroyed the Dalek Time Squad's saucer and of the Tenth Doctor being the Time Lord Victorious. The Doctor tried to defeat it using an EMP but it didn't work fully as this Dalek survived and started to repair its systems. (AUDIO: Genetics of the Daleks)
