Zlatko is the seventeenth chapter of Detroit: Become Human. This chapter has five different outcomes.


This chapter is from the perspective of Kara. After seeking shelter for a night in Fugitives and receiving information about Zlatko's house from an android trash collector, Kara and Alice arrive at the house to ask for help. Zlatko first denys them entry, claiming that he cannot help them. After noticing their android origin, he invites them into his house and offers help with their escape. He shortly chats with Kara and then claims that Kara has a tracker inside her, which he needs to remove first. However, when Kara steps into the machine in the basement, which allegedly will remove the tracker, Zlatko reveals his real goal, namely catching deviants and using them for his experiments.

Public Opinion[]

Attention to Detail[]

Things you can do with little to no story impact:

  • A list of things you can look at in Zlatko's house before going to the basement:
    • a stuffed ostrich, bookshelf, a classical portrait in the entry
    • an altar with two skulls in front of panels of Jesus Christ[1], another bookshelf, a view from a front window, a view from a back window in the living room
    • Zlatko himself has traces of Blue Blood on his hands and forearm, possibly from recent Android experimentation
    • If you spared the Bathtub Android, he will alert Zlatko but if you react quickly enough, Zlatko will not be alerted.
    • If the Polar Bear is set free and isn’t shot by Zlatko, it can later on be seen exiting the mansion in the background.


  • If Kara still has her uniform and has her memory erased, her name will not show up on her uniform until she regains her memory.
  • There is a second chance to free the bear as Kara tries to sneak away.
  • Unlocking the "spare" option requires failing the "kill android" QTE by quickly tapping R1 when facing the android, then failing the "open door" QTE by pushing up on the right stick and not completing the rotation.
  • It is possible for the polar bear android to exit the mansion alive if you set fire or fail the last QTE if you start the chase.
  • The Monster Androids later can later on appear in the recall center if Kara got captured.
  • The TV can display two different videos depending on whether Kara evaded the police or got chased by Connor.
  • At the end of this chapter, the players originally had the option to not take Luther.[2]
  • One of Zlatko's screens in the basement shows human instead of android anatomy, most notably DNA and an X chromosome.
  • On the second floor of Zlatko's house, there are a large number of moving androids. Apparently, they are still alive and aware of their surroundings, despite being burned, bent, dismembered and more. Very few of them seem capable of more than slight motion and none appear to be able to walk, making them both easy to miss in the rush to survive and unlikely to survive the fire.
  • This chapter bears a few similarities to the chapter "The Doc" from another Quantic Dream game Heavy Rain.
    • Both Madison Paige and Kara are restrained and have to find a way to escape or else they can die. (Kara being reset or killed if she fails to dodge Zlatko's shotgun blasts while being chased and Madison being killed if she doesn't escape or loses the fight with Adrian Baker)
      • Also, the fight between Kara and Zlatko resembles the fight between Ethan Mars and Brad Silver in the chapter "The Shark" since the two protagonists are hunted down with a shotgun.
    • Both Zlatko and Adrian can be left alive without being punished, leaving them as Karma Houdini's but Kara can't escape without Zlatko dying.
