Roko Basilisk is a former robotic police officer in the AI crime unit.[1] After a conversation with May, she became a baking apprentice to Elliot from Secret Bakery.[2] Her name is a reference to the "Roko's basilisk" thought experiment.

BiographyEdit

Robot-fighting ring investigationEdit

She was investigating the Robot-Fighting Ring, and approached Faye to try and get her to cooperate with this.[3] Once when she was tailing Faye and Bubbles, Bubbles trapped her in a garbage can,[4] an event she has not forgotten.[5]

Later, Roko had an unsuccessful attempt to catch Corpse Witch red-handed.[6] Spookybot helped Roko close the investigation after the incident with memory of Bubbles.[7] However, Roko wasn't completely on board with their methods.[8]

After investigationEdit

She approached Union Robotics to have her ankle joint repaired because the police force's in-house repair guy is a jerk and does subpar repairs.[9]

Roko 3690

On a date with Pintsize in 3690: They Matched On Computr.

Dating site Computr matched her with Pintsize because of his desire to launch toast at his partners[10] and Roko has a fetish for bread.[11][12]. Roko is embarrassed about her fetish and sometimes starts venting when other people start suspecting it.[13][14]

Quitting police forceEdit

After meeting May in Coffee of Doom, Roko started having doubts about her position as a police officer.[15] May tried to talk Basilisk out of quitting,[16] but in the end, Roko decided to leave the police force.[1] Spookybot visited Roko just after she left the police station.[17] After a slightly embarrassing interview with Beepatrice[18] Roko joined AI rights nonprofit.[19]

Body crushing incidentEdit

After joining the robot rights advocacy group Roko tried getting a bakery apprenticeship.[20] She shared her existential crisis story with Bubbles.[21] They shared an olfactory synesthetic experience,[22] which was very similar to previous Roko's aroma hike.[23] On their way to Union Robotics, Faye, Bubbles, and Roko discussed robots' bodily integration.[24]

Roko felt like crying after hearing how Faye and Bubbles got together.[25] She suffered a horrible accident at the doorstep of Union Robotics. Crushbot, an extra-large robot, slipped on a crate of misdelivered bananas and fell onto her, leaving her disembodied and traumatized in a virtual environment undergoing counseling.[26] Roko has been woken up in the virtual reality by Lemon.[27]

With Lemon's encouragement, Roko moved on and purchased a Model G body with the insurance money.[28] She had some issues adapting to the new body,[29] and even asked Spookybot for help in case she never feels the same.[30] Despite initial doubts about new body's sensorium with regard to her bread fetish,[31] Roko has found that its capabilities are more than enough.[32] She did, however, have to fight the urge to peel her face off.[33]

Helping May Edit

After Roko learns about May's situation with regards to her chassis, she brings her to the non-profit and introduces to Beepatrice.[34] Beepatrice organizes a checkup at a chassis shop, Roko takes May to her parole officer and convinces him to write in May's file that she really needs a new chassis to reintegrate into society.[35]

At the end of the day at work, Roko was visited by Spookybot.[36] During this visit, Roko convinced them to give two billion dollars to charity,[37] found out the real reason Spookybot tries to become friends,[38] and introduced them to Melon,[39] who helped invent Spookybot's new name "Yay Newfriend".[40]

Roko's struggle with body integration resulted in a dissociative episode during a game of Jenga with Melon and Yay.[41] When put to sleep by Spookbot[42], Roko saw a lucid dream featuring ghosts of her previous and current body.[43] Yay and Melon kept her company.[44]

Personality Edit

Roko and Bubbles 3892

Until the "Body crushing incident", Roko has been in the same body since her birth [45] and finds it disturbing to be presented with her own detached limbs. Roko has sensitive feet.[46]

Roko similarly to Bubbles enjoys smelling tea.[47] When smelling Assam tea, she sees a sexy unicorn man,[48] same as Emily Azuma.[49]

When highly upset or emotional, Roko slips into a South Boston[50] (or "Southie") accent, which, due to that region's heritage, some describe as an Irish accent (or at least her version of such an accent).[51][52]
