Roko Basilisk is a recurring character, and a former robotic police officer in the AI crime unit. After a conversation with May, she became a baking apprentice to Elliot from Secret Bakery. 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.[1] Once when she was tailing Faye and Bubbles, Bubbles trapped her in a garbage can,[2] an event she has not forgotten.[3]

Later, Roko had an unsuccessful attempt to catch Corpse Witch red-handed.[4] Spookybot helped Roko close the investigation after the incident with memory of Bubbles.[5] However, Roko wasn't completely on board with their methods.[6]

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.[7]

Roko 3690

On a date with Pintsize in 3690.

Dating site Computr matched her with Pintsize because of his desire to launch toast at his partners[8] and Roko has a fetish for bread.[9][10]. Roko is embarrassed about her fetish and sometimes starts venting when other people start suspecting it.[11][12][13]

Quitting police forceEdit

After meeting May in Coffee of Doom, Roko started having doubts about her position as a police officer.[14] May tried to talk Basilisk out of quitting,[15] but in the end, Roko decided to leave the police force.[16]

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], before suffering a horrible accident when 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.[21] Roko has been woken up in the virtual reality by Lemon.[22]

With Lemon's encouragement, Roko moved on and purchased a Model G body with the insurance money.[23] She had some issues adapting to the new body,[24] and even asked Spookybot for help in case she never feels the same.[25] Despite initial doubts about new body's sensorium with regard to her bread fetish,[26] Roko has found that its capabilities are more than enough.[27]

Personality Edit

Roko and Bubbles 3892

Until the "Body crushing incident", Roko has been in the same body since her birth [28] and finds it disturbing to be presented with her own detached limbs. Roko has sensitive feet.[29]

Roko similarly to Bubbles enjoys smelling tea.[30][31]

When highly upset or emotional, Roko slips into a South Boston (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).[32][33]
