Ethan was a colonist who, in 2179, was kidnapped while in hypersleep by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation and taken aboard the USS Legato for the purpose of Xenomorph breeding.

Ethan was impregnated with a Chestburster on the Legato and died when the creature burst from his chest.


Early Life[]

"Best I can tell some of us were brought here from hypersleep by someone or something."
Ethan, to Lisbeth

In 2179, Ethan, along with his friend Lisbeth and her family, set out as colonists. They were all abducted at some point by Weyland-Yutani to be used for Xenomorph research aboard the Legato.

Awakening and Death[]

"Listen, never mind them, you need to get off this ship..."
Ethan, to Lisbeth

After being taken aboard the Legato in stasis by Weyland-Yutani, Ethan woke with a Facehugger attached to his face. After removing the deceased creature from his face, Ethan discovered Lisbeth hiding from a nearby Weyland-Yutani PMC killing any civilians in-sight with his M240 Incinerator Unit.

He pulled Lisbeth into cover and she expressed concern over him having a Facehugger on his face but he dismissed it. After being asked what was happening, Ethan explained that they were abducted during hypersleep and then asked Lisbeth if she had seen her parents to which she said she hadn't.

He told her that they were probably still in hypersleep and that she needed to find a way off the Legato. Lisbeth protested, wanting to find her parents but Ethan repeated himself before falling over onto the floor coughing up blood as the Chestburster gestating within him erupted out of his chest and scurrying off as Lisbeth watched in horror.
