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 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]

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.[4]

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[5] and Roko has a fetish for bread.[6][7]. Roko is embarrassed about her fetish and sometimes starts venting when other people start suspecting it.[8][9][10]

Quitting police forceEdit

After meeting May in Coffee of Doom, Roko started having doubts about her position as a police officer.[11] May tried to talk Basilisk out of quitting,[12] but in the end, Roko decided to leave the police force.[13]

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.[14] Roko has been woken up in the virtual reality by Lemon.[15]

Characteristics Edit

She has been in the same body since her birth [16] and finds it disturbing to be presented with her own detached limbs. Roko has sensitive feet.[17]

Roko similarly to Bubbles enjoys smelling tea.[18][19]

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).[20][21]
