- "Welcome to the end of the world, my friends. My name is Scorpio, and the Neo Skulls are my boys. Ain't nothing we'd love more than to plunge your happy little world into flames."
Scorpio is the most aggressive player in Anno 2070. As the leader of the Neo Skulls pirate group, he likes to threaten the world and to scare people.
Background and the events of ANNO2070[edit | edit source]
The only thing known about Scorpio's background is that he is Hector's brother, but they do not seem to have any interaction with one another, as even Hector is shown to be somewhat skeptical to Scorpio's brutality.
At some unknown point prior to the events of ANNO2070, Scorpio and his crew, The Neo Skulls, managed to seize control over a vast quantity of nuclear weapons, which they would use to attack settlements at random. Scorpio's brutal reign of terror eventually caught the attention of the Ark Captain (the player), which led to the latter's decision to pursue Scorpio and his gang of barracudas. The Ark Captain eventually managed to track Scorpio down to a specific set of sectors, in which the two parties engaged in open war with one another; this eventually culminated in the destruction of two Neo Skulls outposts, which caused Scorpio to flee with his remaining barracudas to the Neo Skulls HQ, in which they began to prepare their nuclear silos for launch, and began attempts at keep the Ark Captain at bay by trying to destroy their settlements and military fleet. Despite Scorpio's efforts, the Ark Captain eventually destroyed the nuclear silos one by one, and after building a sufficient fleet, the Ark Captain launched an attack on the Neo Skulls HQ, which resulted in it's destruction, and Scorpio was forced to go on the run once again. It is not known what happened to Scorpio after the destruction of the Neo Skulls, nor is it ever mentioned if he ever reconciled with his brother Hector.
Activities[edit | edit source]
Scorpio is far nastier than his brother Hector during war time (he offers no trading route protection, no cease-fire, and no request peace actions). The only ships Scorpio employs are Raiders and he builds these periodically, just like Hector. These ships are faster than all trading ships without boosters.
