She was activated on June 12, , making her 3 years and 5 months old. She gets a job as an exotic dancer at Taffey's Bar, creating an act using her own pet snake. Deckard tracks her down at Taffey's after finding her snake's scale, and she soon realizes that he is dangerous. She attacks him, but Deckard narrowly escapes death when people walk in just before she delivers a killing blow. Zhora tries to escape by running into a busy street, but Deckard chases her and finally shoots her in the back, "retiring" her.
Unnamed replicant s [ edit ] According to dialogue spoken by Bryant in the Final Cut of the film, two other unnamed replicants only one in earlier versions were killed while attempting to enter the Tyrell Corporation.
The term used by him when describing their deaths "Two of them got fried running through an electrical field" suggests they were stopped by an electrical barrier or security device of some sort. In the theatrical cut of the film, the spoken line is "One of them got fried running through an electrical field" leaving one replicant unaccounted for. Earlier drafts of the script name these replicants as Hodge and Mary. In Hampton Fancher 's early drafts of the script, Mary lives and Hodge is the only replicant fried in the electrical field.
Mary was intended to reflect the novel's character of Irmgard Baty, and was meant to be a "mother figure" model of replicant, performing housework and childcare duties, and she was supposed to be reminiscent of the stereotypical housewife of the s. Her incept date is given as November 1, K is aware he is a replicant, and like the rest of his line, was programmed with implanted memories to aid his mental stability—though the new model replicants are fully aware that these fake memories never really happened, to them or other people, but are fictional fabrications.
In contrast to Deckard in the first film, a human blade runner who suspects that what he thinks are his real memories might actually be implanted, K is a replicant blade runner, who begins to suspect that his implanted memories are actually real. When he begins to suspect that he may be Rachael's child, and thus a "real" person, Joi suggests that he needs a real name and picks "Joe" for him. Officer K was played by Ryan Gosling.
Joi[ edit ] Joi is an artificial intelligence projected as a hologram, designed and commercially sold by Wallace Corporation to be a fully customizable live-in romantic companion. K, an artificial intelligence himself, has a Joi copy but treats her as a person, and tries to have a real romantic relationship with her, while wondering about how "real" it can truly be given that she is programmed to like him.
K obtains a mobile "emanator" unit for her at the beginning of the film, a control rod which he can transport in his coat, allowing Joi to accompany him anywhere in the world. Joi is nonetheless intangible and cannot physically interact with her surroundings. Played by Ana de Armas. A genius genetic engineer, his genetically modified crops and livestock solved a global food crisis - which then gave him enough political clout to lift the ban on replicant production.
Wallace improved the genetic programming of his new "Nexus-9" replicants to the point that they cannot disobey the orders of humans, even if the order is to commit suicide. Wallace then bought out the bankrupt Tyrell Corporation which failed after several revolts by Nexus-8 replicants. By , Wallace Corporation has revitalized the replicant industry and is a major megacorporation with numerous other subsidiaries in other fields, such as Joi unit digital AI holograms.
Wallace is blind, but uses cybernetic implants in his neck to interact with various computers and "see" through camera units. The secret of making replicants that can reproduce died with Tyrell, and Wallace is obsessed with learning it.
By , Earth is suffering from resource depletion and heavy pollution, and it was Wallace's genetically modified foods and new replicants that not only staved off extinction, but allowed humanity to spread to the off-world colonies. Nonetheless, Wallace is frustrated that humanity has only spread to nine other planets, when he wants to see it explode across thousands of planets in the galaxy.
Lacking the capacity to build enough replicants for such an endeavor, Wallace is convinced that replicants capable of reproduction on their own are the answer.
Ana Stelline[ edit ] Dr. Ana Stelline Carla Juri is a scientist who designs the implanted memories that Wallace Corporation installs into its new replicants: Empathetic to how replicants are used as slave-labor, Ana tries to give them pleasant memories to carry with them, even if they know they're artificial.
Due to the complications that can arise, it is forbidden to base memory implants on the real memories of another person: Stelline secretly sneaks in a few of her best memories into some of the memory implants, as a gift.
Ana actually doesn't directly work for Wallace Corporation: Stelline developed an immune system deficiency as a child, and has spent the past two decades living in a sterile clean-room in her company's compound, keeping her in seclusion from the outside world.
Secretly, Ana is actually the daughter of Deckard and Rachael: The replicant underground hid her as an infant and scrambled the records, seeing her birth as a miracle and Ana as their savior. K comes to Ana's lab to investigate the wooden horse he found, which was in his allegedly fake memory implant. She confirms that it is a real memory, but not who it is from - either K or someone else. The wooden horse was a gift from Deckard to his child, later etched with the child's birth date the same day that Rachael died, from her grave marker.
K suspects the memory of the horse is his own, and he is Rachael's son, but when he meets the replicant underground they reveal that Rachael's child was female. K then realizes that Ana was Rachael's child and it was her memory of the horse - because the best memories she gives to replicants like K are actually based on her own.
He entrusts her as his right-hand agent running day-to-day affairs over Wallace Corporation. She also acts as his personal enforcer, ruthlessly killing police officers in the search for Rachael's child.
Luv has an outer air of poise, but with a powerful fury simmering barely underneath. Apparently an older Nexus-8 model, she took care of Rachael's baby after she died in childbirth K recognizes her in a photo of the baby from around Freysa helped to hide Rachael's child and erase the records of its past, but is organizing the underground to one day lead another replicant revolt.
At some undisclosed point, Freysa lost her right eye: Whether someone cut out Freysa's eye and left her for dead, or perhaps she cut out her own eye so she cannot be identified, is left unexplained. She explains the stakes of the situation to K and her past with Rachael's child, causing him to realize that it is actually Ana.
Freysa warns K that if Wallace is able to interrogate Deckard and capture Rachael's child all will be lost, and urges K to kill Deckard before that can happen. K, however, saves Deckard while managing to fake his death by drowning in the ocean.
