THE REPO MAN

AKA:


Nathan Wallace played by Anthony Stewart Head

Was a Bastard in:


Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)

So who the Hell is he?


Nathan Wallace is the head repo man for the uber large company GeneCo. In the future, an epidemic of organ failures created the need for genetically created organs available to the needy public. Not everyone could afford these expensive implants, so payment plans were offered to make them more affordable. If a payment is missed expect a visit from the Repo Man.

That’s not a Knife...


That's a Scalpel. OK that's sort of a knife. He's been know to use any cutting tool (usually medical) depending on which organ he's been ordered to harvest.

Why, for the love of God Why?


The Repo Man is just doing his job and he takes his orders from Mister Rotti Largo head of GeneCo. Nathan believes he killed his wife 17 years ago and Rotti witnessed it. In reality it was Rotti who killed her and blackmailed Nathan into being his head repo man. So to keep the secret from his daughter, Shilo, and presumably the police, he agreed to kill anyone who broke their contract with GeneCo and re-possess their organs. Who's really the bad guy here?

 

So what’s the damage?
Nathan has been working as a repo man for the 17 years since his wife's death and has committed untold murders as GeneCo's legal assassin. Nobody sticks around when they miss a payment.

It’s a million to one chance but it might just work...
Wanna kill a Repo Man? Well it ain't that hard. Since the Repo Man is as human as any of us, he easy enough to kill. Repo men tend to be pretty handy at hand to hand combat, Nathan in particular is very skilled. When Rotti's attempts to have Nathan killed fail he ultimately uses Nathan's own daughter to lure him into submission.

 

Words of wisdom


"I'm the monster. I'm the villain. What perfection. What precision! Keen incisions, I deliver. Unscathed organs, I deliver. Repossession, I deliver. I'm the Repo! Legal assassin!"

"I remember, I dismember. 'Cause the claims medic gives no anesthetic! 90 days delinquent gets ya' repo treatment! I'm the masked horror on your street corner! Make your mama mourn ya! I'm the Night Surgeon! I remember..."

I did mention it's a musical... Didn't I?
