Rick Deckard

Rick Deckard is one of the main characters of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. He lives in San Francisco, with his wife Iran and works as a bounty hunter, which means he retires androids that he finds. We know later on in the book that his salary depends on how many andys he retires. "He's a bounty hunter; remember? So he lives off the bounty he makes, not his salary. Isn't that so, Mr. Deckard?" He nodded. (56) Rick also has a mood organ and also owns an electric sheep, even though he used to own an animal before the War.He also owns an electric shep where animals are very importat sign of wealth and power. He later buys a real goat with the bounty money. Deckard is often confused about the fact if he is a empathetic person or not. At times he seems to have no feelings what so ever and during other times he is at home looking back at his actions and regretting about what he has done. Throughout his bounty hunting career, he must have killed many androids and after connecting with Mercer many times, at the end of the book he seems to feeling sorry for the androids a little.
