The Murder of J. F. Sebastian
by Jean Jones
"Tell me more about this J.F. Sebastian"
- from the movie, Bladerunner
J.F. Sebastian was a genetic designer who, in his spare time,
to deal with his bouts of loneliness, built toys to entertain him by
greeting him at the door when he would come home by saying:
"Good evening J.F.!" "Home again, home again, jiggety jig!"
J.F. was murdered by Roy Batty, for no reason at all except to
protect the identity of Roy Batty.
Roy needed J.F to get to Dr Tyrell, and J.F. had done everything Roy asked. After Roy murdered
Dr. Tyrell, he needed to eliminate all witnesses. Roy had the
audacity to mourn the death of his girlfriend by Rick Deckard afterward,
even though he had murdered an innocent man, who had done nothing except
what Roy wanted.
J.F. will never come home to his toys again, and they wait for
a creator who will never come. They will never say, "Home again, home
again, jiggety jig," and J.F. will never enjoy their company again.
mourns for J.F.? Who mourns for his toys? Who mourns for Adonis?
