Scars

A trio of Scars

The Scars are one of the four main enemy factions of Anthem.

OverviewEdit

"Created by chaos,"[1] the Scars are a relentless[2] invasive force, not native to the world that humanity calls home.[3] They arrived on the world via Shaper technology,[4] with whom they have a mysterious connection.[5] They can deploy via red portals hovering above the ground, appearing in flashes of light.[6] While not technically alien, they aren't human either,[7] and can't even be considered to be humanoid[4] (in actual fact, they're insectoid). However, they did try to emulate humans in taking the form they did.[1] They appear to converse in a gutteral language.[2]

The Scars are currently in conflict with the Freelancers,[5] as they are trying to retrieve Shaper technology (an action the Freelancers are opposed to).[3]

From a gameplay standpoint, the Scars are the "baseline enemies" of Anthem.[4] Their motivations and reason for battling the Freelancers will be revealed over the course of the game.[1]
