I was told I was the most face value SubGenii they have met -- ironic, seeing as how I'm the one in the mask

The Greatest Science Fiction Villain of them all -- Scorpius


"I long ago learned the advantages of patience."

The scariest person in the room never has to apologize for anything. Not torture, or murder, or the single-minded pursuit of a mother Leviathan and her newborn baby, or for driving our heroes to the brink of insanity. For Scorpius, it's all in a day's work.

The product of a Scarran assault on his Sebacean mother, Scorpius grew up among his father's people, hated and despised as a hybrid weakling. The Scarrans spent cycles trying to torture the Sebacean tendencies out of him. He eventually escaped and made his way to the Peacekeepers, who found his intelligence and ruthlessness useful enough to promote him to head scientific programs at their secret Gammak base. His overriding interest was to defeat the Scarrans, whom he loathes, and advance the Peacekeepers into the Uncharted Territories -- by whatever means necessary.

As a Sebacean/Scarran, Scorpius is regarded as a "half-breed," and therefore not equal to his Sebacean Peacekeeper compatriots, despite several physically superior traits which he possesses. He is capable of seeing further into the light spectrum, which allows him to see the energy signature of living beings. This unique ability also enables him to see subtle shifts in those energy signatures -- thereby detecting people's lies. He is also stronger than most Sebaceans, and as the main researcher on wormhole, remains one of the Peacekeeper' leading scientists in military weapons development.

His body suit is designed to regulate his internal temperature due to his Scarran half in need of heat which his Sebacean half is vulnerable to. Cooling rods are regularly inserted into the cavities in his head, which maintain thermal constancy, allowing his two halves to live in equilibrium. These rods must be periodically replaced; otherwise, his body might literally kill itself.

In every other way, he is far more competent and determined than those around him. His hybrid background may explain why he lacked military rank for so long, and why he found it necessary to finesse his way into a command through indirect means. Under most circumstances, Scorpius presents a calm and confidently amused face, seeming utterly certain of his eventual victory over those who oppose him.

He can be frighteningly polite to his victims, rarely raising his voice even when thwarted. His anger is terrible to behold, however; when he is surprised, or frustrated by sudden difficulties, he is capable of lashing out at anyone that thwarts him. A master of intellectual manipulation, he prefers not to use violence in reaching his goals, but his physical strength -- coupled with an intimate knowledge of pain and torture -- make him a fearsome foe in any circumstances. His skills are unparalleled, and he possesses one of the keenest minds in the known universe.

If there are any lengths Scorpius won't go to, or any ethical scruples that might prevent him from reaching his goals, he has yet to show them. When the wormhole information is finally in his possession, Scorpius's power in the Uncharted Territories will be substantial. He looks forward to developing powerful new weapons with this hard-fought knowledge… then unleash them on the hated Scarrans who caused him so much pain.

John Crichton remains a source of concern for him, and for good reason. The Peacekeepers had accepted the high cost of his pursuit for a time, but eventually Scorpius begins to lose the respect of his subordinates and the Peacekeeper High Command. And if he fails in his task, or if Crichton -- or Talyn – interfere with Scorpius' latest Gammak project, the Peacekeeper scientist's fate may be sealed.

However, when it comes to personal survival, Scorpius has proved many times that he possesses a truly uncanny brilliance. The Scarrans may soon have much to worry about from a creature they once dismissed as a weakling -- and Scorpius wouldn't have it any other way.

To find her

The specter of rage is my constant shadow

Ever lurking in the nooks and corners

The heavy hammer of righteous indignation

While also a burden too large to bear

It has sharpened the blade of mental conflict

At the same time blunts the heart

The red glow of anger burns so hot and bright

That it is sometimes all I know

It has been the warmth that comforts

And the flame that scars

It has attracted those who share my vision

But also driven away those who share my heart

Family and friends torn apart by this beast

This monster that lurks in the recesses of my soul

It fuels the voice with enough strength to rattle the heavens

But can also instill fear in the souls of the innocent

Such a wicked beast to frighten unnecessarily

A curse I've had to accept as to be the end of me

A lonely road no one but I can travel

A rock to drown my heart

And to drag my soul down into the darkness

A curse of isolation and solitude

Until I met you

I see your eyes hold steadfast

I hear your voice unwavering

The monster roars and destroys

And yet you stand your ground

And with the softness of the embrace

And the sweetness of the sound of your voice

The monster shrinks back

The darkness falls from my eyes

The red glow cools

And all that is left is a kiss




-- Yeah, I know it's sappy. So what.

So I continue to see these news reports and posts regarding how the Christians and the Muslims have been pushing their agendas through the world courts.

Well, let me point out a few things. I am not a Christian. Nor am I a follower of Islam, Hinduism, Chinese traditional, Buddhism, Primal indigenous, Sikhism, Juche, Spiritism, Judaism, Bahá'í Faith, Jainism, Shinto, Cao Dai, Zoroastrianism, Tenrikyo, Neopaganism, Unitarian Universalism, Rastafari, African traditionalism and diasporic, Humanism, Atheism, Rationalism, Agnosticism or Satanism.

No, friends – I am a SubGenius. And as a SubGenius, I am obligated to show, not only no respect whatsoever to anyone’s delusions, but am bound by the tenets of the sacred texts to ridicule and blaspheme all institutions of madness – this courtesy extending to my own twisted belief system. Yet I will never attempt to stand in the way of those very delusions I mock. And still, I continue to watch the self-righteous scream and shout how their values are under attack!

So what values are those?

Were those values forcing your secular beliefs into the laws that govern the land, and not giving a damn if it infringes on anyone elses beliefs?

Or maybe demanding your voice be heard over all others while forcing others to shut up?

How about allowing the atrocities in the world to continue while you hide behind "Gods Will" as a shield to protect you from taking action?

Or hypocritically condemning the actions of an imaginary enemy while you make allowances and justifications when the need suites you?

And then there is denying others the ability to enter into a sanctified union because you think it will somehow diminish yours?

And let’s not forget demanding critical thinking be replaced with guarded ignorance, while promoting fairy tales and/or dogma in place of science?

And my personal favorite, hiding behind blind faith in order to either protect you from the real world or in order to justify your existence?

But there’s also demanding your god take precedence over all others?

And demanding others have their right to live taken away because they don’t follow your line of thinking?

And the ever popular demanding that desperate people change their beliefs to yours in order to receive your help?

See, I have never called for the death of those who do not believe as I do, because I know you're already dead and just don’t know it yet.

I have never attempted to change someone elses way of thinking, because most folks are too myopically minded to grasp what it is I preach anyway.

My beliefs do not require anyone else to think the way I do in order to support them. And I’m completely content to keep it that way.

I don’t practice what I preach, because I’m not the kind of person I preach to.

And in the end I know I’m right – and when this planet finally burns… Well, let’s just say ‘vindication is an amazing sensation.’

Radicals and fanaticals may be bad, but hiding behind your shepherd as a shield will do nothing to save anyone. Cause no matter how many followers are within your flock, there is one truth that you can never escape. All lambs, eventually, are lead to slaughter. At least it’ll be a party at “Bob’s” house when the end comes, and we'll be grillin' up BBQ lamb chops.

So, I call you out, all people of hypocrisy and apathy. Because even if some people from your flock have done good in this world -- the atrocities, the murders, the torture, the robbing of innocents, the senseless slaughter of untold millions of people, all in the name of your God does put a damper on the whole benign facade.

It is sickening that you hide behind your faith as justification for atrocities. And those who hid behind their faith to shield them from taking action to stop it! You should be hiding behind “Bob” – at least he has a money back guarantee!

In any case, when it comes to shepherds -- I’d rather be a wolf any day. At least then I’d have a fighting chance.
