Pris/raccoon?

I think everything I've ever read about the characters in BR being associated with certain animals has Pris as a raccoon. Only 1 thing works for me in regards to that idea... The "mask" she spray-paints on her eyes.

I have always thought of Pris as a Cat, and numerous things steer me in that direction. Hear me out:

Just before entering the Bradbury with J.F., she squints her eyes as you hear the howl of a cat, and the streetlights above her head resemble slanted green cat's eyes (intentional & fantastic camerawork BTW).
Also, wasn't there supposed to be an animoid cat outside J.F.'s lapping-up some oil originally? (early script or something. can't remember.)
When she attacks Deck and jumps on his shoulders, it causes her hair to stand on end... like a pissed-off cat.
After her death we still hear the cat's howl during the Roy/Deck chase but, I believe that to be the canine's/Roy's grief as he is thinking about avenging the death of his feline friend.

I may be forgetting some other stuff. Heck, even many domestic cats have masks or spots on their eyes.
I thought about having a poll but it's not such an important issue... just something that always kinda bugged me. I'd rather just hear your thoughts and opinions on this. Anyone?

interesting POV, Gene. you're probably right. never thought about that, i just have to watch BR again with in that in mind.

anyway, i agree with you about the great camera work in the I'm Hungry J.F. scene, i love those cat-eye looking green streetlights, and i'm positive in some version that shot lasts longer than in the FC. not sure which one, have to check.

<<<<<<After her death we still hear the cat's howl during the Roy/Deck chase but, I believe that to be the canine's/Roy's grief as he is thinking about avenging the death of his feline friend>>>>>> lol....I always thought it was a wolf howl during the Deckard/Roy chase scene, but Pris does have some cat like attributes.
Chew...if only you could see, what I've seen with your eyes!

Oh yes, Roy is definately howling like a wolf while in pursuit of Deckard. I'm speaking of the sound of the cat in the soundtrack. Happens several times. Sort of a "meow"... but not a happy one. A cat's howl, not a dog's.

It's weird, when I first saw those lights, they looked like Spawn's eyes. But yeah, a cat is fine too.

:lol: :lol: Good one, deleted. But of course, BR has no reason whatsoever to reference Spawn :wink:

Honestly... Listen to how many times you hear the cat. Simultaneously with the green streetlights, I might add. To me, it's always seemed so obvious that Pris is a cat that I really can't believe it's never been brought up before.
