RoboCop (performed by Peter Weller) is the main protagonist of the film named after him, RoboCop is a fictional Detroit Cybernetic police officer designated as OCP Crime Prevention Unit 001 in the film series of the same name. The character begins as a human being named Alexander James "Alex" Murphy, who is killed in the line of duty by a vicious crime gang. Subsequently, Murphy is transformed into the cyborg entity RoboCop by the megacorporation Omni Consumer Products (OCP).
Police officer Alex Murphy is serving with the Detroit Police Department when its funding and administration is taken over by the private corporation Consumer Products. Murphy is a devout Irish Catholic and a mild-mannered family man, living with his wife, Ellen and his son, Jimmy, Murphy starts mimicking his son's television hero, T.J. Lazer, by twirling his gun whenever he took down a criminal. Murphy's psychological profile states that he was top of his class at the police academy and possesses a fierce sense of duty. This dedication explains why Murphy exhibits none of the negative attitudes and statements shared by his fellow officers when he is transferred to the Metro West Precinct, the most violent area of Old Detroit. The police dissatisfaction is the result of OCP's (deliberate) mismanagement, and penny-pinching, which led to the deaths of many police officers in the precinct.
