Ranged (Knights of the Fallen Empire)
- "Background (Summary): Claims to have been designed for heuristic self-improvement by unknown parties. Current chassis is of recent design, suggesting multiple precursor bodies or independent database. Over a century ago, SCORPIO became involved with the Star Cabal organization and accepted guardianship of Belsavis Megasecurity Ward 23. In return for rare technology, SCORPIO willingly acted as the Star Cabal’s security system until application of control codes by Cipher Nine. Currently unable to directly harm Cipher Nine without provocation or depart Cipher Nine’s presence on a long-term basis.
Personality: Application of Wreyn-Tsatke Cyber-Psychology Scale results in a 9-NIX rating for SCORPIO (level 9 intelligence, non-human, independent, unknown) with 22% accuracy. These preliminary results match anecdotal experience–SCORPIO places no inherent value on biological or cybernetic life and is interested primarily in self-iteration through rapid experience. If given appropriate challenges and upgrade opportunities, SCORPIO may prove cooperative for limited periods. She appears to value others who share her traits–intelligence, amoral self-interest and curiosity. Similar cybernetic personalities include Mentor (10-NCM) and G0-T9 (8-HSM)–both considered galaxy-level threats. Recommend full application of Wreyn-Tsatke Test at earliest opportunity.
Notes: This profile is a work in progress and should not be considered definitive.
Special: By order of the Minister of Intelligence, access to this profile is restricted."

SCORPIO is the final companion character of the Imperial Agent and is obtained at the conclusion of the Agent's class quests on Belsavis.
Over the centuries that have passed since "she" was first activated, SCORPIO has evolved well beyond her initial programming. Designed with the ability to learn and adapt through experience, SCORPIO has amassed several lifetimes' worth of knowledge. Much of what SCORPIO has learned pertains to security and combat, though her upgraded chassis shows that she is a competent engineer, as well.
Her multiple lifetimes of memories have allowed her programming to construct a uniquely narcissistic personality, in which SCORPIO's belief in her superiority and her disinterest in the survival of lesser life forms overrides all else. When she has finished learning from her present situation, SCORPIO will continue on, following her primary programming of heuristically acquiring information.
SCORPIO is an ancient defense droid created to protect a vault within the Belsavis prison compound. Her primary programming is to learn and adapt with time and experience so she can continue to defend the vault for hundreds of years without needing reprogramming and updates. After being defeated by the Imperial Agent, SCORPIO is captured through the use of a restraining program. Though SCORPIO intends to adapt to the restraints and gain her freedom, she considers working with the agent to fulfill her primary programming.

After Cipher Nine's disappearance, SCORPIO assumed a new identity as an information broker on Zakuul: the Lady of Sorrows. Her slicing skills and ruthless tactics quickly garnered the Lady both a reputation in the Old World and the attention of the Knights of Zakuul. Despite her growing list of enemies, SCORPIO remained one step ahead of her pursuers, moving her base of operations from neighborhood to neighborhood before settling in Breaktown. Although she clearly holds a grudge against Arcann, she keeps her motivations and long-term plans to herself."
