The T-X, also known as the Terminatrix, is a fictional character who appears in the 2003 film Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, part of the Terminator franchise.
The T-X is a cyborg assassin with a human female appearance; the character was portrayed by Kristanna Loken. The T-X has the ability to assume the appearance of other characters; therefore, several other cast members occasionally portrayed the T-X throughout the film. This ability to change shape is similar to that of the T-1000, the main antagonist of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
The T-X is the main antagonist in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, sent back to try to stop John Connor from founding the human resistance by killing off his future allies, as Connor's location is unknown. The T-X is programmed to seek out and kill 21 primary targets, including: Connor's future wife, Kate Brewster, her father, General Robert Brewster, and several of Connor's future lieutenants. In the case of the lieutenants, the T-X was able to gain access to the public school database, obtain their photos and addresses, then proceeded to track and kill three of them (José Barrera, Elizabeth & William "Bill" Anderson) before discovering John Connor with Kate. The T-X also succeeds in mortally wounding Robert Brewster after he activated Skynet, so he could not shut it down, even though it had already spread to computers world-wide.
Other than a malfunctioning weapon, the T-X sustained no permanent damage throughout the film, until the Model 101 crashed a helicopter into it, causing it to lose its mimetic coating and legs. It was destroyed only when the reprogrammed Terminator jammed its last power cell into the T-X's mouth and detonated it, causing an internal explosion.
