Early in the 21 Century, the Tyrell Corporation advanced Robot evolution into the Nexus phase – a being virtually identical to a human – known as a replicant.

Replicants were used Off-world as slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and colonization of other planets. Now, on Earth, the Nexus 4 Replicants have been adapted for societal elites to own for industry and service work. But Tyrell continues to experiment with further enhancements. Because progress stops for no man. Recently, the dangerous escaped Nexus5 has appeared in The Slums – Det. Cal Moreaux’s old neighborhood. Tyrell Corp executive Ilora Stahl shot and killed Effie, a junior bioengineer, for withholding information on the Nexus 5 program. In an attempt to control Cal, Ilora threatened to burn down The Slums in one week if Cal didn’t recover the rogue Replicant. Fully understanding how deep the rot goes, Cal left the force in protest over the corrupt relationship between the LAPD and the Tyrell Corporation. Now a rogue agent himself, but still tethered to the Nexus 5 mission, Cal has requested the help of Asa, a Replicant with the simulated consciousness of senior bioengineer Dr. Lydia Kine, because time on Ilora’s threat is running out…

Replicants were used Off-world as slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and colonization of other planets. On Earth, Tyrell continued to experiment with further enhancements – because progress stops for no man. LAPD Detective Cal Moreaux has discovered that the suicide of Dr. Lydia Kine was actually an elaborate ruse constructed by the Tyrell Corp engineer so she could live freely as a Replicant named Asa. Dr. Kine’s latest experiment – the escaped Nexus 5 prototype – initially received the blame for her death, however Cal has discovered the truth – the identity of the Nexus 5’s host consciousness: his sister, Nia Moreaux. More existentially advanced than others, Nia has been “awakening” some Replicants in the slums of Los Angeles, causing them to leave their positions of servitude in pursuit of autonomy. Tyrell Corp executive, Ilora Stahl has been charged with the Nexus 5’s capture, and she will stop at nothing to protect her job and the company’s brand in spite of growing chaos. In desperation, Ilora launched an all-out attack against the Sectore-6B slums. Cal, Asa, and Nia raced to save the residents and together with Desiree, Marcus, and the survivors of Nia’s “awakened” Replicant followers sought refuge with Divina in the safe haven of La Plum Sauvage, only to find that it too had been destroyed by Ilora’s henchmen. Nia realized what she has to do to put a stop to all of this…
