Howie Lee was the sushi master at the White Dragon noodle bar in Los Angeles' Chinatown. He mainly spoke Japanese, but when prompted, he spoke English and understood Cityspeak.

He employed a replicant chef called Zuben who was targeted for retirement by rookiee Blade Runner Ray McCoy.[1]

Sometime after this incident, Rick Deckard ate at Lee's restaurant. The two traded a brief exchange where they somewhat jokingly argued about how much Deckard should order. After serving Deckard his meal, Gaff came along and tries to get Deckard's attention while speaking Cityspeak, with Howie translating. Ultimately, Deckard took Howie's meal to-go.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Howie is unnamed in the original Blade Runner film and script, only referred to as "Sushi Master."
