Lodian was a humanoid Dalek scientist working in a secret base in the Polar Mountains along with Yvric and Zet. Yvric and he discovered the location of the planet Earth. They constructed a spacecraft to go there. When the neutronic war occurred, the pole shifted and all three were frozen alive in ice.
Centuries later, a Dalek hoverbout accidentally revived them. They soon determined they were the last of the original Daleks and that Yarvelling's creations had become the rulers of Skaro. Lodian was the only one of the three to recognise the Daleks were evil. When Yvric was exterminated, he told Zet about Earth and the spacecraft. However, Zet knocked him out and handed him over to the Daleks.
