Scar is the nickname for a particularly vicious and cunning Cylon Raider, feared and revered by Galactica's pilots. The nickname is derived from battle damage and grime on the Raider's forward cowling that resembles a scar.

Scar is responsible for many ruthless, successful attacks against mining vessels deployed from the Fleet into a treacherous asteroid field. It is known for its taste for nuggets and favors separating them from their wingmates for an easy kill. The need to eliminate Scar's threat increases a pilot rivalry between Captain Kara "Starbuck" Thrace and Lieutenant Louanne "Kat" Katraine.

Caprica-Valerii believes that the cause of Scar's unusual aggressiveness was pent-up rage after repeated painful deaths and resurrections.

On the 29th day of mining operations, Starbuck engages Scar but breaks off a suicidal run against it in favor of luring it into the sights of her wingmate, Kat, who scores a crippling blow on Scar. Scar is sent careening into an asteroid, and is destroyed in an explosion of shrapnel and gore.

It was unlikely that Scar was able to resurrect, due to the recent loss of the nearest Resurrection Ship (Scar).
