"Alice", Chapter 3

The Boris clones are duplicate but imperfect clones of Boris the Wolf that appear as lifeless corpses in Chapter 1 and later in Chapter 3 of Bendy and the Ink Machine.

Bestiary

Description

In terms of general appearance, these clones are almost identical to the original Boris. Although comparing to the living Boris from the later chapters, the clones have sketchy lines around the facial area, including around the nose, all freckle spots, some parts on both sides of the muzzle, and around the eyes. There are more sketch lines around the overalls, on both patches from the knees, lower parts of pant legs, and the "belt" with the addition of two curved-lines below. The gloves also have sketch lines. Comparing their height to the living Boris', they are slightly shorter.

As they are revealed to be deceased in-game, each one seen so far has been strapped to an upright operating table with belts. Their chest has been cut into and pulled open, exposing their ribs, while revealing a lack of heart and lungs. Their left overall strap is unbuckled with the half seems to be cut off, and their eyes are X-shaped to show in a cartoonish logic that they are dead.

Behavior

Due to the fact that all of the clones are dead, they are completely passive to Henry and cannot move.

Main appearances

Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

Henry first encounters a Boris clone shortly after entering the abandoned studio. Upon finding the body, Henry is shocked and wonders what Joey could have been doing to cause this to happen,[1] unaware that "Alice" is actually responsible for the clone's death along with most others, as their innards are used to make herself gorgeous again.[2][3] Dark, demonic whispers are heard when standing close enough towards the Boris clone.

The wrench, one of the items required for fixing the Ink Machine, is located in the incision in the Boris clone's chest.

Once the Ink Machine has been activated, going back to the room with the corpse will show the body squirting ink onto the floor from where the missing organs should be.

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

After entering the flooded morgue on Level 9, multiple deceased Boris clones can be seen along with with the corpses of Piper, Fisher, and Striker. One of the nearest dead clones seems to catch Boris' attention and cause him to just stare at it.

"Alice" claims that she was the one responsible for their deaths, saying she needed them to make herself beautiful again. The corpses are simply whatever she did not need left behind.

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders

While they did not return in the fourth chapter, there is a mutilated incarnation of the original Boris, by the name of "Boris", bearing some strong resemblance to the duplicated Boris clones.

The Original Sample

The Boris clone appears in the 30 seconds long animation short where Bendy tries to release from the table straps of the corpse, before getting himself melted away with the grip of "Bendy".

Trivia

General

  • The Boris clone was changed over few times for updates before the release of Chapter 4:
    • PrototypeChapter 1 Dead Boris

      The Boris clone's beta model from Chapter 1's prototype.

      From the earlier prototype of Chapter 1, the Boris clone's model was originally far different from the final version. The old model is slightly taller and with a noticeable lack of detail in the face. It has no overalls or gloves, bigger shoes, an open mouth, and six symmetrical ribs. Both eyes in X-shape appear to made out of string, as if they were sewn shut. The cut into the body's torso is a Y-shaped incision, similar to an autopsy. Instead of being tied down with straps, it is fastened down with buckles. This model was originally designed by theMeatly before hiring Pascal Cleroux to redesign the model when developing Chapter 2 along with the first chapter's first remastered update.
      • When using the modeling program after rigging the model, there are two "buttons" located on the back of the Boris clone, but they are never seen visibly in-game.
      • The "buckles" from both of the clones' limbs and a neck are revealed as filming reels while using the modeling program.
      • There is an error where the top back areas of the clone's shoes are clipping through the table.
      • The beta shoe models are later recycled for the costume closet in Chapter 4, where the creepy-looking Bendy costumes are found.
    • In both updates for the release of Chapter 2 and 3, the Boris clones' operation tables are far simple and less detailed in design.

Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

  • The Boris clone was changed several times over recent updates until Chapter 4. (See the "General" section above for the Boris clone's prototype model description):
    • In the oldest prototype before the first remastered update upon Chapter 2's release, the wrench from the Boris clone's incision is well hidden, because the incision is very large, and the wrench blends in with the clone's innards.
    • From Chapter 1's prototype and the first remastered update, the incision of the Boris clone makes a sound when squirting ink. This sound was removed upon Chapter 3's release, but was readded when Chapter 4 came out.
    • From previous updates before Chapter 4's release, no demonic whispers are heard when getting close to the Boris clone.
