Rachael, a lovely replicant from the film Blade Runner

Replicant is a generalized term which refers more to the original Kapek visualization than the current accepted nomenclature. As in Blade Runner, "replicant" will often reference a bio-mechanical, or engineered biologic, creature designed to carry out the same tasks as a conventional robot. This harkens back to R.U.R., where the robots created by Rossum's company were of biologic origins.
