Richard Slattery, also known by the aliases The Skin and Harlan Powell, was a Los Angeles-based surgeon.


Under the name "Harlan Powell," the Skin worked at the Aphrodite Beauty Salon and under his real name, was the senior bioengineer at the Tyrell Corporation.[1]

At some point, the Skin performed surgery on Bellingham to advance his appearance in age.[1]

During her investigation into the disappearances of Isobel and Cleo Selwyn, Blade Runner Aahna "Ash" Ashina questioned him at his office concerning a call Isobel made to him. He informed Ash that the call was concerning a birthmark surgery, then noticed that Ash wore a brace. As she left, the Skin told her that Isobel was "on her way home."[1]

The Skin later visited Bellingham.[1]
