abstract
  • Scorpius is a central character and the primary antagonist in the space opera TV series, Farscape. A high-ranking Peacekeeper commander and scientist, he was born a hybrid of the reptilian Scarrans and the humanoid Sebaceans - making him an anomaly in the notoriously anti-hybrid Peacekeepers. Enslaved and abused throughout his childhood as part of an experimental program conducted by the Scarran Imperium, Scorpius has developed a deep and abiding hatred for all Scarrans; his ultimate goal is to take revenge on the entire species, ideally via their total extermination. To that end, he is obsessed with harnessing wormholes as weapons of mass destruction, which he believes to be the key to granting the Peacekeepers a military advantage over the Scarrans. Upon discovering the wormhole knowledge locked away in the mind of series protagonist John Crichton, Scorpius is driven to capture Crichton and extract the data by any means necessary. While he is portrayed as a straightforward villain in the first two seasons, over the course of seasons three and four he ends up evolving into more of an anti-hero, eventually joining the crew of Moya. However, even then, he has an understandably strained relationship with Crichton, who continues to view him as a nemesis. He is portrayed by Wayne Pygram (except for flashbacks to his younger self, where he is played by Evan Sheaves) and appears in all seasons of the show and the post-cancellation TV miniseries The Peacekeeper Wars.
