Sasori is a cyborg. An entity half Drosk half machine, unfortunately.
Unfortunately, because he would prefer to be considered an android. But that would be inaccurate, and becoming an android would never happen unless he gets rid of the only thing that truly belongs to him, his soul.
Though even if he sells his own soul he won’t became an android -he admitted this painful truth long ago-, but a Cyszka.
“You pussy. You wouldn’t survive a day in the desert.” “But I live north of you… That’s all, like, dry rock.” “You gotta get accustomed to eating off the landscape.” “You can’t even eat and your urge when seeing a scorpion is to shove it in your mouth?!” “I have instincts to kill.”
Later Deidara went to Pain like “Listen, I know this is usually the other way around, but I have a complaint.”
Talking about Sasori’s diet with danachan325 led to this when she randomly said “Sasori’s diet is scorpions and sand.” This comic is kind of out there, but I feel like the Suna people are trained to eat whatever they can find when out there for days on end. Also, Sasori was probably one of those little kids that liked those nasty scorpion lollipops.
