Tropes that apply to individual characters in A Hero include:

Since the story does not depart greatly from canon characterizations, this page is reserved for either character who had no prior characterization, or who gained new characterization as the story progresses.

Dalek Sec


Former Dalek Supreme of the Cult of Skaro, former Dalek Hybrid, and formerly deceased. Arrives in the Puella Magi'verse with absolutely no explanation, and is now trapped in the same Stable Time Loop as Homura. Irritable, and prone to backfiring Mad Science. Was once the executive officer of the Dalek Inquisitor General, and was promoted for surviving five consecutive missions under it's command.

The Dalek Inquisitor General


The most cruel, ruthless, terrifying, and Badass Dalek in the Empire. Was Sec's commander for five consecutive missions. Scares other Daleks.

  • Badass: He was teleported onto a Dalek Battle Saucer filled with the new 2010, post-Time War Daleks. He is a pre-Time War Dalek. No shields, vulnerable to physical attack, and much weaker than the new models. He manages to destroy every single one of the new Daleks without using his gun. His next task? Conquering the rest of the fleets...
  • Bad Boss: To the point that Sec got promoted to Dalek Supreme, a position usually reserved for specially-bred Daleks, simply by surviving five missions under his command.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Not the Dalek Inquisitor General, but for all other Daleks in regards to the Dalek Inquisitor General. You know he's crossed a few lines when the Daleks, the poster child of Omnicidal Mania, are more scared of him than The Doctor.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: Word of God says that being assigned to his command is considered this by Daleks.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: To the point that other Daleks find him terrifying.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Despite only a passing mention and a short appearance in the story that didn't even get any lines, he's managed to hijack threads on the Spacebattles forum that have no relation with the story at all.
    • The theory that the author is, in fact, the Dalek Inquisitor General does not help matters.
  • The Dreaded



"Madoka saved me…and one day, I'll return the favor."


Time-Traveling Magical Zombie/Lich. So old she can't even remember what her father looked like, and basically the same person as she was in Canon.
