Malpha was one of the representatives from the Outer Galaxies on the Galactic Council who planned to conquer the Solar System with the aid of the Daleks.

BiographyEdit

Malpha was last to arrive at the Council's first conference on Kembel but took a leading role in that meeting. Upon his arrival on the planet, he was informed that there were hostile influences from the solar system among them. He brought this to the attention of the Black Dalek, who corrected him. Clarifying that the hostiles were not amongst the Council but rather Earth beings that had landed on the planet, the Black Dalek assured Malpha that their spaceship had been destroyed and that they themselves would be hunted down and killed before they could get a message out into the universe, whether by the hands of the Varga plants or the Dalek patrols themselves.

With the seven great powers of the Outer Galaxies united, Malpha made a speech in which he described their union as "an historic moment in the history of the universe" as he and his five fellow representatives from the outer galaxies, joined with "the power from the solar system", the Daleks. Malpha opined that the powers represened the greatest war force ever assembled, confident in the conquest of Mars, Venus, Jupiter and the moon colonies. Finally, he led the table in pledging their allegiance to the Dalek cause, vowing that their armies would reduce the galaxies to ashes and their people to dust, beginning with the conquest of Earth. It was at this point that all representatives present joined him in a chant for victory. (TV: Mission to the Unknown)

He had a lesser presence in subsequent meetings. He was one of the few to survive the Daleks' treachery. The First Doctor helped him to escape to his own people and warn them about the Daleks' invasion plans and organise resistance. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan)

Appearance Edit

Malpha was tall and well built. His face was covered with a pattern resembling a patchwork, dark lines on pale skin. (TV: Mission to the Unknown, The Daleks' Master Plan)

Abilities Edit

Malpha claimed to possess strength beyond that which a human was capable of. This advantage, he supposed, was because he was a silicon-based lifeform, from a planet with gravity unlike Earth's. He told Jodor Colwyn that he could quite easily "snap [him] like a twig" in their present environment. (AUDIO: The Perfect Prisoners)
