Lore

Am I the smartest, handsomest member of The Seven? A lot of people say "yes." With the best hair? Don't answer that.
— The Scientist


Season X

He arrives at Athena by a meteor frozen in time, and work with The Visitor to takeover Dusty Depot and build a rocket inside of it. They also create Rift Beacons and change locations to bring alternate versions of it, and with the rest of The Seven he pilots the rockets to stabilize The Zero Point.

The End (Chapter 2)

The Scientist arrives at Apollo with The Visitor during the attack on The Last Reality, The Visitor covers him as he opens the Guava Fort Bunker to evacuate the Loopers, once done the Scientist tells to The Visitor to go on the "other side". He later accompanies the Loopers inside The Bridge to join The Foundation and Jones, however after joining them they are attacked by a Caretaker which causes a flood.

Chapter 3: Season 1

The Scientist arrives on the Island as a Character, and also has quests for the player to complete. In these quests, he employs the help of The Looper for various tasks such as spying on the colony of Jonsey snapshots and destroying signal jammers put there by someone working against the Seven.

Audio logs made by the Scientist can be found detailing the Seven's relationship with The Paradigm. The first audio log is a message to the Paradigm, asking for her help despite whatever happened between her and the Seven. The second audio log is a broadcast on the Seven's secure channel saying that the Paradigm had pinged back after recieving the message.

Paradigm. Uh, it's me. I'm-- I'm guessing you heard what happened.
Obviously we had more ambitious goals than simply flipping the Island.
That was just one step in a scrupulously planned attack that would've reduced the Imagined Order to a smoking crater, to put it mildly,
But, the reality left us exposed and overextended.
If-- if they manage a counter attack before we recover, it’s over. All of it.
Look, I know our history is... complicated... but I want you to know I never lost faith in you.
Okay, I did. But only for five minutes, maybe. Maybe a few weeks, tops. Uh...
It's hard to believe that someone who went through what you went through would hold the line...
But I-- I know you did. (sighs)
So we really do not deserve your help right now, not at all, but we need it.

This is the Scientist broadcasting on The Seven secure channel. At oh-four-hundred hours, we received a ping from The Paradigm.
Still need to confirm authenticity and verify that we're not being hacked, spoofed, tricked, or otherwise deceived,
But I believe it's the real deal.
I know that among our ranks there are still some mixed feelings about The Paradigm
But for the sake of survival we need to think of her as an ally.
We are The Seven. We have a duty to rise above grudges and petty disagreements for the greater good.
And yes, Foundation, I'm looking at you. I can see your face through that mask.
Regardless of the past, there is no future without her.

Hey! Scientist here.
Am I the smartest, handsomest member of The Seven? A lot of people say "yes."
With the best hair? Don't answer that.
Hold onto this device.
As we prepare our battle plan, we’ll have work for you.

Receive your next objective at Mighty Monument

Audio Subtitle
You may have noticed the... big guy’s new statue.
No comment, by the way, but they definitely hired someone on discount.
I need you to figure out who keeps vandalizing it.
I suspect Loopers.
Specifically, the big banana guys.
Audio Subtitle
Thank you. Very thoughtful for angling this camera at banana height.
Oh man, look at that juicy lens flare.

Receive your next objective at The Launchpad

Audio Subtitle
So, hey! We left some "wartime essentials" in the ol' endless void of space...
So we’re launching a retrieval rocket.
Problem is, somebody really doesn’t want us to do that.
I have my suspicions about who that "someone" might be.
Destroy all three signal jammers.
Audio Subtitle
WAIT! I CHANGED MY MIND!
I'm just kidding.
I knew I could trust you to destroy priceless scientific equipment. (whispering) I'll send you the bill.
Nice work.
Hey, if we find what we’re looking for up there...
I’ll ask them to bring you a little space rock as a treat.

Receive your next objective in Sanctuary or any Seven Outpost

Audio Subtitle
So, our first rocket recon mission failed.
But you know what they say...
When one launchpad door closes, another one opens.
...and behind that door, there’s a bigger rocket with more telescope parts in it.
Which you will go and source for me.
Right now.
Audio Subtitle
This is very exciting for you.
This’ll really improve focusing power. Plus I can paint some racing stripes on it. I mean, not me. I know a guy.
Yes!
Watch out, guidance sensors! You're about to get a brand new internal magnet system. You're welcome.
Hey, if we find what we’re looking for up there...
Ugh. I love telescopes.
I wish I had forever to build this one.
But, you know, impending doom and all.

Receive your next objective in The Joneses

Audio Subtitle
You know the blonde dingdong in the suit, “Agent Jones”?
Well, there’s more of him.
And they’ve started their own society of dorks.
So, how 'bout bring them some supplies as a peace offering...
And then scout their camp to assess the threat level.
Audio Subtitle
Well look at that! A little drawing of Slone!
And The Foundation!
With knives pointing at them!
It's probably nothing...
Oh! Here’s what we’re looking for!
A declaration of independence.
They won’t fight for anyone anymore.
So it seems like they’re disgruntled about being made to fight in a neverending loop. I get that.
I've got an idea. Let's buy their loyalty.

Audio Subtitle
I’ve detected some unusual seismic activity.
Maybe the Island has a nervous stomach after its little gymnastics routine.
Or maybe it’s something worse.
Would you mind hiking up those perilous, deadly mountains?
I need you to check on my seismometers.
Hey, do you mind making your heart beat a little quieter?
It's kind of muddling my scan.
I got my data, and you got your steps in. Win-win.
A real scientist never admits when things aren’t looking good.
They just say, “Huh, that’s different,” and quietly retreat to their lab to try and fix it.
So… Huh, that’s different.

Trivia

  • A secret style for The Scientist was available if you went to the computer at Dusty Depot and interacted with it. This would unlock a white variant.
  • When the Scientist first came out, he could be unlocked for free without owning the Battle Pass. This glitch was patched a day after it's release. Epic didn't revoke the outfit if you did the challenges and didn't own the Battle Pass.
  • During the Chapter 2 Finale event the Scientist was seen using the white variant, rather than his default style.
