Roko Basilisk is a recurring character, formerly a robotic police officer in the AI crime unit. Her name is a reference to the "Roko's basilisk" thought experiment.
Robot-fighting ring 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.
Dating site Computr matched her with Pintsize because of his desire to launch toast at his partners and Roko has a fetish for bread.. Roko is embarrassed about her fetish and sometimes starts venting when other people start suspecting it.
Quitting police forceEdit
After meeting May in Coffee of Doom, Roko started having doubts about her position as a police officer. May tried to talk Basilisk out of quitting, but in the end, Roko decided to leave the police force.
She proceeded to join a robot advocacy group and accidentally fell into a bakery apprenticeship, 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. Roko has been woken up in the virtual reality by Lemon.
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).
