It was always the same. Every time Gavin met with one of his brother's inventions, things went awry.

Synthetic skin shimmered clean and strange as the glow of neon lamps hit it. A LED flashed in a cool blue and fingertips twitched as it did a first system check. It was time. The commands were clear.
Hunt. Find. Eliminate.

"That's not good." Chloe's warm voice sounded genuinely concerned, but Elijah had calmed after the tests. He leaned back and stared at the screen, where ‘ERROR information doesn’t exist’ kept flashing.
"Do not worry. That's probably the best."
He ignored her doubtful look. The next few years proved to him that he was right.
After an exhausting and embarrassing case, Gavin needs a peaceful evening, but his brother has other plans. Elijah had not forgotten what happened between Gavin and RK900 and now he has a special gift for Gavin's birthday. A stressful diner is waiting for them.
As if it were the most natural thing in the world, Elijah fucking Kamski went through the police station, as if he owned the place. Without any bodyguard or his usual escort android.
Now it was over.
His brother had come to ruin his life. Probably just out of a damn mood.
The front man with an old-fashioned cane was nobly dressed in a long black coat with a dark red collar. Underneath he wore a dark gray vest and matching suit trousers. The stiff, white collar of his shirt was complemented by a dark red tie. His dress shoes had been polished to shine. His black hair was combed back, his sides were cut shorter. The narrow face was framed by a dense beard, which looked well-groomed. A broad forehead was followed by low-set eyebrows, which gave him a serious look and underlined the intelligent expression of the gray blue eyes.
“Gavin? Do you greet your father in this way?”

This ff is my idea to explain Gavin's hate for androids.
“Enjoy your birthday and your present, Gav” – these were the only words in Elijah’s letter. Gavin could see his brother’s worries between the lines.
He carefully pulled away the last piece of wrapping to take a closer look at his present:
A brand new android.
Steel blue eyes fixed him. Immediately the detective looked away and to his captain, silently pleading for mercy. Fowler was asking too much. Why could they not just leave him alone?
Gavin did not even dare to look for the number. He knew it. He felt it with every pore of his body, but he did not want to see it.
"I'm RK900. Your new partner."
