Roy is a Nexus 6 Replicant from the movie "Bladerunner". Created as a soldier by Dr. Eldon Tyrell of the Tyrell Corp Roy is extremely strong, quick, and much too intelligent for anybody else's good. So what's Roy problem? He has a limited lifespan: four years ... tick ...tock ... tick ...tock ... The Nexus 6 series of replicant's were created to be as human-like as possible. Virtually indistingiushable from "real" humans they were also implanted with memory emgrams to give them a past and to assist in their sometimes precarious pyschological balance. In other words they feel and think no differently than "real" humans. Roy served his entire life as a soldier fighting in interstellar wars (ala "StarShip Troopers"). Then sensing that his time was almost up Roy and a group of his fellow Nexus 6 replicant's (Pris, Leon and Zhora) rebeled, hijacked a ship and returned to earth where they sought out Dr. Eldon Tyrell. Once on earth they were hunted by what was known as a "Bladerunner": a Police Officer who's duty it was to "retire" (kill) rogue replicants. This job fell to ace Bladerunner Rick Deckard (portrayed in the film Bladerunner by Harrison Ford). It was Roy's intention to force Dr. Tyrell to disclose the secret of prolonging a replicants life, a ticklish and difficult exorcise in gentic manipulation. When he discovered that Tyrell was as helpless to give him more life as he himself was Roy killed Tyrell. One by one Roy's companions were "retired" by Deckard until only Roy was left. Deckard had a somewhat more difficult time with Roy ... the Bladerunner was in fact losing very badly in his confrontation with the Nexus 6 Roy Batty. The wounded, battered and frightened Deckard was trapped atop a huge building running for his life when he tried to jump to another building and didn't quite make it. Hanging on for dear life with two broken fingers (coutesy of Roy: "This is for Pris." *SNAP* "This is for Zhora." *SNAP*) Deckard was saved by Roy who hauled him up to the top of the building. He didn't kill Deckard as the Bladerunner clearly expected. Instead he mourned the passing of all the wonders that he had seen (SEE the Tears In The Rain wav on this page) and then he died.
