Search for 'Davros' on Amazon

Vast intellect. Supreme self-confidence despite severe physical handicap.

Vast intellect. An ego the size of a planet.

Moral-less Kaled scientist whose plan for saving his people from the after-effects of a nuclear holocaust was to fuse Kaled genetic material with a technological construct so as to create a new race of beings known as the Daleks.

As the Daleks reproduced and Davros went into long-term suspended animation, they grew away from his initial programming. As a result, his reawakening would ignite a schism in Dalek society, and an eventual civil war between those loyal to their original creator and those loyal to the lead Dalek--otherwise known as the "Emperor Dalek"--of the day.

Davros was an invention of Terry Nation in his televised serial, "The Genesis of the Daleks". His inclusion, and the back story that accompanied him, was in conflict with the history of the Daleks that had been seen in comics a decade before. He occupies roughly the same dramatic space as the combination of David Whitaker's "Yarveling" and "Zolfian".

Given his prominence in the Dalek myth of the 1980s, and the affection most Doctor Who fans have for "Genesis of the Daleks", it's difficult to imagine him being controversial. When the story first aired, some segments of the Doctor Who fan community loudly denounced him as "non-canonical", out of respect for David Whitaker's then-deacde-old The Dalek Chronicles.

Interestingly, Phillip Hinchcliffe, producer of the serial, "Genesis of the Daleks", noted in the story's DVD documentary that the design of the televised Davros was at least partially influenced by another British comic character, The Mekon.
