Dev was a Weyland-Yutani Corporation employee and botanist working in Greenhouse 112 on LV-492. He was working there when a single Xenomorph Facehugger got loose in the complex.

As Dev was outside the greenhouse when the Facehugger was loose, he survived the incident unscathed.


Dev worked only part time in the greenhouse on LV-492, spending most of his time teaching at graduate school. Among his students was Julie, who became interested in a similar line of work after Dev repeatedly mentioned how well such a career could pay; she eventually took up a posting in Greenhouse 112, under Dev's supervision. However, Julie was dismayed to find Dev had little passion for his work and was wrapped up in the bureaucracy of his posting, caring only about his paycheck.[1]
