Number Six (played by Tricia Helfer) – often referred to as Caprica Six – is one of twelve humanoid models developed by the Cylons. Through her manipulation of scientist Gaius Baltar, she plays a pivotal role in the initial Cylon attack on the Twelve Colonies and the near extermination of the human race.

Over the course of Battlestar Galactica, Caprica Six increasingly questions her role as a Cylon and her identity more generally. She serves to blur the lines between Cylon and humans, as well as explore the pivotal theme of what it means to be human.
