Malpha was one of the representatives on the Galactic Council who planned to conquer the Solar System with the aid of the Daleks. He was last to arrive at their first conference, but took a leading role in that meeting. 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.
