Raz Karcy is the central
protagonist of the 1997 video game OverBlood. Voiced by David Keith.
Stuck in a cryochamber in the opening of the game, you control Raz as he tries to uncover the mystery of what's going on in the seemingly empty facility he awakes in.
Raz Karcy is often characterized by his below average intelligence, simplicity and naivety. He does not understand computers very well. Most of the challenges he is presented with are often 'just too complicated', as he relies greatly on his robotic companion Pipo to solve them for him, notably needing him to simply flip a switch. He does however seem to have an exceptional level of emotional intelligence, as he can understand exactly what Pipo is trying to communicate with his simple beeping. Raz can also be characterized by his unnatural attachment to Pipo, as he sometimes compares him against Milly Azray, a female human.
In the sequel to Overblood "Overblood 2" Raz inexplicably has a british accent.
During a Super Replay on GameInformer magazine, associate editor Dan Ryckert dubbed Karcy as 'Wienerless Steve'. This came about when the staff came upon a full body scan of Raz Karcy in the course of the early stages of the game, showing a relatively anatomically correct flesh diagram save for any male reproductive organs. Considering the ESRB standards at the time, displaying a penis in a T-rated game would have secured it a definite M, or even AO rating. While this was simply a conscientious choice by the developers, many fans of the game refer to Karcy simply as 'Wienerless Steve' or even 'Steve' more often than his given name. It is never actually discussed within the game whether Raz is genderless or not, but can be assumed that he is a fully functional male, as is his progenitor.
