The peculiar close binary system AR Scorpii, since its discovery in 2016, sparked huge interest due to its peculiar multi-frequency emission from radio frequencies to X-ray energies. The multi-frequency Spectral Energy Distribution (SED) from this system is dominated entirely by non-thermal emission from radio to X-ray energies, which resulted in several theoretical papers appearing in literature that attempted to explain the peculiar multi-frequency properties of this enigmatic source. In this paper, an emphatic theoretical framework will be presented to explain the multi-frequency SED of AR Sco, as well as a model to explain the possible origin and evolution of this enigmatic source.
