Lydia Kine was a Tyrell Corporation employee who worked in the lab of Dr. Charles Edevane, head of Project Nexus.

Biography[]

During her time at Tyrell, Kine worked closely with Effie Koropey and achieved transference, managing to transfer her consciousness into a new body, a man she used to draw as a child, that she referred to as Asa.[1]

Officially, Kine was killed by Nexus-4 pleasure model 4-331575.[2] Later that night, a Nexus-5 prototype escaped. Afterward, the corporation covered up her apparent death, claiming it to be a suicide.[3] Her consciousness continued on in the form of Asa, who soon made contact with her brother.[1]

Now in the body of Asa, Kine rescued her brother from the clutches of the Tyrell Corporation and took him to Virgil to a find a friend. There, she tried to convince him to trust her by going to a pierogi stand recalling memories of their mother bringing them pierogis when they were children. However, the replicant cook at the stand was beaten by his owner, then retaliated. A horrified Marcus tried to leave, believing Lydia to just be a simulation of his sister. Trying to convince him, Lydia reminded him of her drawings of Asa, saying that she still had them at her apartment.[1]

Upon arriving at the apartment, she was held at gunpoint by LAPD Detective Cal Moreaux.[1]
