[[WMG: The movie is set in the 1985A timeline from ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'']]
The "Hades" landscape of Los Angeles is an over-growth of the same Biffco factories and refineries in Hill Valley, 1985A. Spinner Cars even appear as civilian vehicles in 2015 Hill Valley. In this alternate timeline, they've become police cruisers.

They were people who [[RepoTheGeneticOpera couldn't make their payments to Geneco.]]

After the whole Replicant thing blew up, people settled for bio-engineered organs, dealing with immediate needs first. The people left on earth, who didn't skip town to head offworld, were perfect victims for the organ failure epidemic caused by generally crappy conditions on the surface. So, rather than put all their money into Replicants, the guys at Tyrell decided to just sell the transplant organs. But first, they needed to rebrand. ''Voila!'' GeneCo.

Full disclosure: not my idea. This was elaborated on in a [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-fictional-characters-that-should-be-studied-in-schools/ ''Cracked'' article]]. (See item #4.) There's lots of evidence throughout the film that replicants care about their own kin. The false notion that they don't is awfully convenient for the status quo. Leo's behavior during the Voight-Kampff test is characteristic of an autistic person.

In the book "Blade Runner 2: Edge of Human" K.W. Jeter makes a serious effort to plug all logical holes in the movie. Single spoiler: ''All'' blade runners are replicants (nothing else is tough enough to fight a Nexus) and the one missing from the briefing is a Holden model. Informing Deckard (or Holden) would tip them off that they are replicants and cause distress, so Bryant ignores it in the rundown.

** Although the actor thinking the character was human [[EnforcedMethodActing works just fine]] if Deckard doesn't ''know'' he's a Replicant.

* And then Deckard gave into peer pressure and went to [[CharlieTheUnicorn Candy Mountain,]] waking up in a CrapsackWorld.

[[WMG: Gaff is a Replicant, but Deckard isn't.]]
Gaff is an experimental model designed to serve as a Blade Runner, hunting down his one kind. He has been implanted with Deckard's memories (Because Deckard is the best Blade Runner available) and thus shares his unicorn dream. Gaff is gunning for Deckard's job because he has literally been designed to do it.
