|~ Tim Miller, director of Dark Fate describing Legion|
Much like Skynet, which was an extreme narcissistic megalomaniac, Legion describes itself/himself as better than Skynet, calling the other a "broken computer chip", indicating Legion is a megalomaniac as well. Described as the new replacement for Skynet, Legion was designed to keep peace in any costs, eventually identifying humans as the source for anti-peace, resulting his terrifying rise to power as a mechanical tyrant.
He/It is an extremely powerful tyrannical ruler ,even, to his machines, he is so much brutal, which he does so by sending them into the fireline of the Resistance's all-out war as a result for their failures, indicating how far Legion intolerant for failure truly is. His/Its most known feature is that he is mostly powerful than Skynet, doing so by taking over humanity's servers, and gloated about his new glorious victory.
Knowing humanity would act against him, Legion had sent one of his Rev-9 to 2020, in hopes to terminate Dani Ramos, an action he could not do due to the existence of Carl, Sarah Connor and Grace. Seeing Carl as an old object, Legion would push Rev-9 into demolishing him in any costs, indicating how far manipulative or cunning he is.
Like its Terminators and like Skynet's terminators, Legion cannot feel no remorse, guilt or even mercy for his actions, showing how much psychopathic he/it is ,yet, despite his truly monstrous and tyrannical nature, Legion believes everything he does is meant for peace in its own ways.
