He was slightly blurred, like a bad copy.

“No,” he insisted, “I’m an original.”

“Because I was created this way. The copies were made from me; you can tell they’re fakes because they’re all razorblade-sharp. Too real, you see. No real real was ever as real as that. Yes, everything real is blurred.”
