How about this:
October 2018. Fall has come to L.A. again, or at least, the calendar says so. Sure, it has become colder and it rains more often, but in this concrete jungle, in a world that has completely destroyed it's global climate, the only thing that is a sure way to identify one season from the other is the names of the months. Two bladerunners have been set on a particularly strange case. It seems a case gone cold has suddenly become active again, after a regular street cop was killed by a skin-job who very closely resembled a renegade rep from some time back.
In 2016, Tyrell had already introduced it's Nexus 6, with a capped lifespan of four years. In an experiment to slightly shorten or prolong these lifespans, Tyrell created the Longevity program to study the possibilities. The first results of the program were two replicant 'brothers' called Gil and Enki. They had been created to have a lifespan of six years, but instead the genome ruling this trait was corrupted and did not set a predetermined lifespan for the two. As word about the brothers spread, the project was soon cancelled, and the brothers were to be retired. Instead of retirement, the two managed to escape in a long and bloody chase through the industrial area around the Tyrell building and disappear. Nothing was heard from either of them, until today.
The cop killer was identified by ESPER security footage as Enki. The file on the Longevity program was dusted off and Metro put it in the hands of Bryant and that backstabbing bastard shoved it in our direction. 'Not very high profile, so right up your alley.' Seriously, that's what the bastard said. As if everyone has to be a perfect runner like Holden. Hell, Deckard made enough mistakes in his day, didn't he? Still, a job's a job. The crime scene is cold, but that Enki character was last spotted hanging out at some seedy downtown bar doubling as a brothel. Who knows why a rep would willingly seek out the company of real people? They're weird, unnatural, although not without their unique traits. They're more like pets, though, which is what they should stay. Companions and worker drones.
So we'll be off to that watering hole, see if we can find something on that Enki character. Probably changed his name, so I'll bring a few hard copies of his mug along. While we're at it, we might even trace his brother, Gil. That one still hasn't been found. If he is still alive, that is. Not having a predetermined lifespan means jack in this city. One well placed bullet, a knife in your back or too much of Chun Huang's famous noodles is enough to put anyone down, even some perfected skin-job. Still, a little bonus for finding the rep's brother would be good. Especially with the tax rise on synthetic pets of last month. Even though she's fake, I'm not going to take my Lexa to the trash.
