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