Old bad guy. Centuries old malevolent force taken shape. Always
seems to single out Niko to shoot at or try to kill.
Is somehow connected to the Heart of Tarkon.
During a recent list discussion of the
Scarecrow's origin, series writer Christopher Rowley recalled the following:
- "I can't
remember exactly, was Granna a Terraformed world? ..<clipped>....I
think that originally it was a barren rock. The Scarecrow entity was dumped
there either as a punishment or simply because it couldn't be turned off. I
think the idea was that the Scarecrow thing then became dormant, grew into a
cyst that could survive there in the dark forever. Then, much later, humans
came and set to making soil and stirring it around."
