Zuben, after being questioned about Lucy[src]

Zuben was a renegade replicant in Los Angeles.


Military service[]

Zuben (soldier)

Zuben was part of an all-replicant Off-world combat unit called Lightning Squad that fought in the Battle of the Gemini.[1]

Around September 2019, he escaped from the colonies by participating in a Moonbus hijacking and found employment as a chef at the White Dragon. He later was one of the perpetrators of an animal murder case at Runciter's.[1]

Ray McCoy's investigation[]

Ray McCoy's investigation at Runciter's revealed clues indicating two suspects, one large and hobbling suspect and the other with a long, almost graceful gait (Zuben and Clovis, respectively). Other clues found near Lucy Devlin's desk revealed a receipt from Howie Lee's restaurant, prompting McCoy to take his investigation to Chinatown.[1]

When McCoy arrived at Howie Lee's, Lee told him that Zuben was a new chef that had only worked for him for a couple of months. McCoy went out back to interrogate Zuben about Lucy, and the latter ended up attempting to escape. Before he fled, he dumped soup on McCoy in an attempt to slow him down.[1]

If McCoy caught up to Zuben into an abandoned warehouse, he reached a locked door. Zuben dropped from the ceiling and approached McCoy with a butcher's knife. If McCoy was too slow or neglected to pursue Zuben, Zuben ambushed him when he returned to his apartment.[1]

Zuben flees

Zuben fleeing if McCoy let him go

If McCoy spared Zuben, he allowed him to escape. If McCoy retired Zuben, he picked up Zuben's war photo from his corpse.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Zuben is a confirmed replicant in all scenarios. The only other character with this distinction is Clovis.
