Bio –

Born into a brief life of servitude, Roy Batty had seen and experienced more in his four year of existence than most.  He witnessed attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.  And despite all his efforts, his memories were lost like tears in the rain.

Roy Batty was a Nexus-6 Replicant, created by the Tyrell Corporation.  He, specifically, was created with combat prowess and intellect in mind, sporting top stats in both categories.  At the time of the events of Blade Runner, he was three years and ten months old.  Nexus-6 Replicants were created with a four-year lifespan, to compensate for the inclusion of memories and emotions in these newer models.  As such, Roy’s mission became to obtain extended life for himself and his other Nexus-6 companions.  After leaving a trail of carnage and corpses in his wake, Roy was eventually defeated by his own internal clock, and passed away mere moments after opening his soul to his opponent, Rick Deckard.  A formidable threat, racing against prescribed death.
