|“I've been hiding in this garage for 30 years, playing it safe. Time to try out that hero thing.”|
“You only have one life left, Scott.”
“I know and I want it to count for something.”
|— Scott and Kai, "The Speedway Five-Billion"|
Scott is the first player of Prime Empire and a mechanic. He owns a few vehicles, including the Ninja Tuner Car, as well as a cloaked garage that began serving as a hidden base for the League of Jays, after he helped Jay escape from a group of Red Visors.
Having spent 30 years within Prime Empire, hiding from Unagami and his Red Visors who want him to race in the Speedway Five-Billion, Scott chose to remain on the sidelines due to having only one life remaining before he'd be "cubed". Despite this, he briefly allied with the Ninja during their time in Prime Empire.
Little is known about Scott's early life, other than he was the first person to be invited by Prime Empire's programmer, Milton Dyer, to try out Prime Empire for beta testing. When he reached level 13, the AI, Unagami, convinced him to enter the game. His doing so caused Vast Industries to shut down Prime Empire and Dyer to abandon the project and go into hiding.
Scott is chased by the Red Visors and at some point, Jay pops out of the truck and onto Scott's front window. Scott allows him to ride as they dodge most of the Red Visors except one when they crash into him.
Scott presumedly defeated the last Red Visors before introducing himself to Jay, saying that he had been waiting for him for a long time.
Scott tells Jay that they much leave immediately so they disguise themselves. They reach a closed-off area guarded by two Red-Visors. To get past them, Scott and Jay use fake code names but are caught when the real Red 27 came for duty. Jay and Scott are chased by the Red Visors and are forced to fight. Despite being outnumbered, Jay single-handily defeats all of them which impresses Scott. They then hide in Scott's Garage to avoid detection.
Scott holds up his gun to the Ninja after they wondered near his garage. Nya says the secret password, and Scott lets them though his secret garage. He introduces himself to the Ninja and has been hiding the League of Jays in his base. During his explanation, Kai foolishly kills himself and would respawn moments later thinking he has unlimited lives in Prime Empire, but Scott tells the Ninja that they only receive four lives in Prime Empire. Scott touches Kai's pad showing that he has one life remaining. Scott then shows them to Superstar Rockin' Jay, the leader of the League of Jays.
Scott went inside his garage while Unagami told the Red Visors to go after him.
Scott tracks the Red Visors as they somehow found the base. He opens his garage and begins attacking himself and allows the Ninja and Racer Seven to escape unharmed. Realizing there is too much to handle, he attempts to duck away from the attacks, but is shot and is cubed.
Scott returns to Ninjago with everyone else who was trapped in the game. He is seen, as a human again, hugging another loved one, happy to be back in the real world again.
Scott's a good person, as shown when he chose to protect Jay and the Ninja during their time in Prime Empire. Despite this, he was also overly cautious and bitter, as he had been trapped in Prime Empire for a very long time. With only one life remaining, He refused to enter the Speedway Five-Billion Race and was adamant to take any risks, to prevent being cubed. However, after spending time with the ninja, he chose to become more of a hero, giving his life to helping the ninja evade the Red Visors.
