The Renegade Daleks were a faction of Daleks opposed to
Unlike the white and gold Imperials, the Renegades had grey and black livery. As well as fighting the Imperials for political reasons, the Renegades loathed the Imperials because, like the Imperials, they adhered to a xenophobic and racist ideology.
While the Imperial Daleks could hover and fly, the Renegades could only hover a short distance off the ground. (Emperorof the Daleks)
While the Imperials utilised time corridor technology for travelling through time, the Renegades used a compact Time Controller device. The Renegade faction also utilised a mental link that slaved a young, imaginative mind to both the Dalek battle computer and the Black Dalek. (Remembrance of the Daleks)
The Special Weapons Dalek originally belonged to the Renegades, but later changed sides to the Imperials. (Emperorof the Daleks) The Renegades later created their own version of the special weapons Dalek. (War of the Daleks)
The so-called “Renegade” Daleks were formed between the events that transpired on Necros (Revelation of the Daleks) and the events in Shorch (Remembrance of the Daleks), but the war may have begun with the events of

The Renegades had declared war on the Imperial Daleks who were led by Davros, posing as a Dalek Emperor. Despite their greater battle experience, the Renegades appeared to be losing the war, they had been driven off Skaro, which the Imperials had completely occupied.
Learning that the Hand of Omega was hidden on 20th century Earth, the Renegades and Imperials travelled back through time to 1963, each seeking to claim the Hand for their own. Having discovered that the Imperials had established a Transmat device in the basement of Coal Hill School, Shorch, the Supreme Dalek captured and brainwashed a young girl, using her both as the main component of the Renegades’ battle computer, and as an “inside agent” at the school. During this time, one of the Renegades came into conflict with a human military group, which in turn drew the attention of the Seventh Doctor, who helped them to destroy it. The Renegades had already made contact with some members of “The Association”, and formed an alliance with them, due to their mutual ideas of fascism, and falsely promising to help them “cleanse” Britain of foreigners in return for their assistance.
Through the Girl, the Renegade Daleks had managed to locate the Hand of Omega and bring it back to their base. The Imperial Daleks followed, and attacked the Renegades. During the battle, the Renegades’ human allies, learning that they had been deceived, stole the Time Controller and fled, followed by the girl. The Supreme Dalek was the only member of the Renegades to survive the battle, but, upon learning from the Doctor that Skaro had been destroyed, initiated its self-destruct mechanism, at the same time releasing the girl from its control. (Remembrance of the Daleks)
The Renegades survived this battle and began calling themselves Imperials. They were based on Skaro, with their leader, the Dalek Prime, claiming that the planet The Doctor had destroyed was actually Antalin. A civil war broke out within the Dalek ranks, and the last renegades were apparently wiped out, although at least one may have survived. (War of the Daleks)
Some Renegade Daleks survived and were classed as insane and taken to the Dalek Asylum. The insane Daleks died when the asylum was destroyed by the Parliament of the Daleks. (Asylum of the Daleks)
In one timeline, the original Daleks simply abandoned Skaro and
