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.


Awakening and death

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

Lisbeth Hutchins, who Ethan was friends with.

After awaking from stasis aboard the Legato, Ethan removed the deceased Facehugger from his face and met Lisbeth who was taking cover from a nearby Weyland-Yutani PMC killing any civilians in sight with his M240 Incinerator Unit. He brushed off Lisbeth's concerns for him stating he was fine, though he was clearly distressed and panicked. Ethan told Lisbeth that she must find her parents and escape the Legato. A Chestburster then ripped through Ethan's chest and ran off, killing Ethan and frightening Lisbeth.


  • Ethan is the first character to be shown being killed by a Chestburster in Stasis Interrupted.
