By late season
one, John Crichton was growing more confident in the Uncharted Territories.
In fact, he was even bold enough to impersonate the vaunted Peacekeepers
when the situation required. It was time to pull the rug from under
the human; time for a new and formidable adversary to not only challenge
John and Moya's crew, but turn the direction of Farscape itself.
Scorpius is John's nemesis and the most powerful dynamic during
the show's second and third seasons.
his existence to the twisted breeding plans of Scarrans. An unfortunate
Sebacean female is raped by a Scarran in an experiment assessing
Sebacean suitability as breeding stock. After a horrific gestation
period, the Sebacean woman finally gives birth to a male Scarran-Sebacean
hybrid. Although the Sebacean female dies during the birthing, the
hybrid survives and is destined to alter the lives of Peacekeepers,
Scarrans, and Moya's crew.
earliest cycles, the young Scorpius was tormented by the Scarrans
in a series of endurance-building experiments. Although he proved
strong-willed and intelligent, Scorpius' weakness was the very nature
of his Scarran-Sebacean physiology. Scarrans are creatures that
thrive in heat, yet Sebaceans shun the very same heat. Scorpius'
body is in constant battle with itself, a never-ending balancing
between cold and hot. As an adolescent, Scorpius escaped the Scarrans
and wandered the uncharted territories in search of his true identity.
During this time he met Natira, an exotic female creature who soothed
Scorpius' brooding personality. Finally, Scorpius was introduced
to a diagnosan who equipped the hybrid with his familiar black thermal
regulator suit and cooling rods.
curious about Peacekeepers, turned himself in to the first command
carrier he encountered. Intrigued by the hybrid's knowledge of Scarrans,
and convinced of his loyalty to their species, Peacekeepers waived
usual rules against hybrids and embraced Scorpius as one of their
own. Using his ability to detect deceit, his sharp intellect, and
brutal cunning, Scorpius rose through the ranks of Peacekeepers.
Eventually, he convinced High-Command to establish a secret Gammak
base with the intent of securing the secrets of wormholes.
