Dr. Michael Strickland (Alien Mutation)

You've been working for Weyland-Yutani for most of your professional life, starting out as a research tech in a lab and working your way up through the ranks. Now you're the latest to be put in charge of the 937 project - the Xenomorph. Your work in bio weapons and Synthetic development has made you one of the Company'a brightest stars, but this gig is something of a mixed blessing - it has a terrible track record filled with catastrophic failure. This will either make or break your career.

You're in charge of a team that's looking for any DNA you can find in the debris field of Sevastopol Station. You have a geneticist (Sterling) who is brilliant and cut-throat, with little to no ethical boundaries, and a xenobiologist (Grey) who is the best in his field, but focused on using science only for the betterment of mankind. You also have a xeno-anthropology specialist (Eisenreicht) brought in as a consultant who has extensively studied all the data on the Xenomorph and is advising you on the behavior, culture and tactics of the creature. You'd rather not see the thing completely weaponized, but have to balance ethics with the Company's bottom line. Your project lead (Coward) doesn't care who you listen to more - the geneticist or the xenobiologist - as long as you get results.

The Company has sent along an executive (Voight), and it's making your project lead, your direct boss, nervous. The pressure is building.

Patrick McTavish (Prosperity's Price)

Patrick fled the Promise as soon as he was old enough to take a train, riding off to Chicago and the university there. He got his degree in chemistry, and met a woman who soon became his wife. She died several years later, sending Patrick into a spiral of alcohol and a return trip to the Promise. He's currently "insolvent" in town, but anyone who pays attention knows he's the local bootlegger. A handy fellow with a pistol and with little forgiveness in his heart, you're either his best friend, his worst enemy, or someone he doesn't care about at all. If you're family, you're golden - he'll go to the ends of the earth to defend you, no matter the cost. If not, well... he does have friends. A few.

The Scientist (2)

Focus! Focus! Just need a little focus and we can fix all of this. There's always a solution. Not that one, that's too easy. Complicated problems need complicated solutions. It might be messy (or illegal) but it'll work in a pinch. Or will it? Maybe if we just had some more time I could figure this all out.


I know I said I had this but deep down I'm afraid I'm in over my head. I don't really have anyone I can relate to about it, either. I have trouble figuring out who I can trust. It always seems like people are trying to take advantage of me and I keep falling for the same traps. Curiosity killed the cat, but I hope it doesn't kill me.

Christopher Koda (Slasher)

He was always smart - maybe TOO smart, some would say, as any bit of boredom almost always resulted in trouble. Science became his love, his obsession, and it was one that his parents encouraged. Usually. He did nearly burn down or blow up the house more than a few times with his crazy experiments, but no one was ever harmed and his eyebrows always grew back. He got great grades and went to college on a full scholarship, which was important because his family wasn't wealthy.

He lost that scholarship doing unsanctioned experiments in the lab after hours, and had to turn to making LSD with his skills to pay his way after. Then he got busted for that, and college was over for his. Now he's doing the only job he can get at the moment - housekeeping at the Eager Beaver Lodge - and he only got that job because his aunt used to work there and pulled strings. It's been six months and he still has no idea what he'll do for a future, if he still has one.
