Private[citation needed] Guillermo Quintaro was a member of the United States Colonial Marine Corps. He was part of a search and rescue mission sent to Acheron (LV-426) aboard the USS Sephora in 2179 to investigate the disappearance of the USS Sulaco and its crew 17 weeks earlier. He is one of the playable co-operative characters in the video game Aliens: Colonial Marines.


Early life[]

Guillermo Quintaro was a member of the United States Colonial Marine Corps in 2179. He served in Corporal Christopher Winter's team, lead by Captain Jeremy Cruz aboard the USS Sephora. In 2179, the Marines from the Sephora were deployed aboard the USS Sulaco to investigate wht happened to its crew.

Aboard the Sulaco[]

Despite an explosion, Quintaro, along with Corporal Winter and Privates Demarcus Short and Jennifer Redding, made it aboard the Sulaco. Their mission was to retrieve the flight recorder data and find Rhino 2-3's Keyes.

They regrouped with Privates Peter O'Neal and Paluski, who where trying to help wounded Marines. After tracking an unidentified signal to the south, they went into the hanger bay, where they found the synthetic Lance Bishop's legs. Cotinuing through the corridors to the hypersleer chamber, where four tubes were missing, they walked into an area where the Xenomorphs had created a Hive. They managed to find Keyes, but, unbeknownst to the team, he was impregnated by a Facehugger and had a Chestburster inside him. After saving Keyes, they also managed to find the ship's flight recorder, and then regrouped with O'Neal and Paluski in the hangar, where they where fending off numerous Xenomorphs. After a firefight, they all retreated into the airlock to cross the umbilial back to the Sephora.

Stranded aboard the Sulaco[]

However before they could reach the Sephora, Keyes had a chestburster hatch out of his stomach, and he detonated the airlock with cost him and the life of Paluski, but with the exception of Quintaro, Winter, O'Neal, Short, and Redding, but lost the flight-rec recorder and Keyes who had it on him.

With the death of Keyes, the group managed to find their own way out, but they found everything was time-stamped after they received the distress signal, but they also later heard another marine, O'Neal's girlfriend Bella Clarison was still alive, but had been impregnated by a facehugger that was already dead, as the surviving team managed to defend their way past numerous Xenomorphs that attacked them before they reached the main hanger, where Raider 6-5 Lieutenant Lisa Reid came in with at least a small squad of marines to go search for Bella, but with the arrival of Weyland-Yutani forces on the Sulaco, prevented them to rescue Bella, so Winter's and the rest of the group including Quintaro had to go rescue Bella instead, but however Reid's dropship and the marines in the hanger did manage to hold off the Weyland-Yutani forces, while they went to recuse Bella and head to the Sulaco's bridge.

However they're was trouble as the Sulaco was firing heavy ordinance at the Sephora if they didn't reach the bridge in time then they would be trouble, they managed to fight their way past the Yutani forces, and reached the bridge, but they were too late and the reactor to the Sephora soon caused the destruction of the ship over LV-426, with the destruction of the Sephora, they was half a dozen of marines that evacuated the Sephora, but lost of those who perished aboard the Sephora died in the explosion or either escaped, however Quintaro and the rest of the team managed to evacuate to the Hanger Bay fighting past the Yutani and Xenomorph's, which on the way to the Hanger Bay the Sulaco was falling apart, they reached the Hanger Bay where Reid, Cruz, and Klassen where waiting for them, they then escaped the Sulaco and began to land on the planet LV-426 where it crashed.

Stranded on LV-426[]

They both survived the crash, Quintaro, Cruz, Bishop, Winter, O'Neal, Bella, Reid, Short, and Redding together recovered from the crash, Cruz suggested to travel to a colony called Hadley's Hope what was left of it, as they entered the facility, and reached the top, Cruz gave them their duty's, Bella and Reid would head out to the Comm Relay Tower, and their call out all their boys, while Cruz and Bishop would start diagnostics on the system that would boot up, Quintaro, with Winter and O'Neal would help plant motion sensors that can monitor from their, they did eventually plant all monitor sensors and one had to be rest in the Morgue, but even as the arriving Xenomorphs started to arrive they had to fall back to the Operations center, where they then helped Cruz and Bishop, after getting the turret at the ammo stash and setting it up to defend the Operations Centre, they soon Cruz later ordered Winter, O'Neal, Quintaro, Short, and Redding would head through the sewer lines to link up at the relay tower, while on their way through the sewer tunnels, they was trouble and they soon encountered an unknown Xenomorph type known as the Raven captured both Quintaro, Winter, Short, and Redding with them, but except for O'Neal who escaped.

As they where captured by the Raven they where being almost cocooned before they could be impregnated, the Raven stared at them, but before being able to kill them, it eventually heard noises and went to find what was going on, eventually buying both Quintaro, Winter, Short, and Redding time to escape, which they escaped under the floors, however even as the Raven tried to catch up to them, they managed to escape through the vent, they also found a Marine from the Sulaco, Private William Hudson who was found dead, they had to move extra carefully because of alien Boiler's down their, they made it safely but however the Raven was coming close towards them as they had to shut the doors and seal them up, and finally reaching O'Neal, and later they reached outside the facility and managed to hold off the Xenomorphs that began attacking them, they also later found Bella, and Reid and managed to head to the Hanger after again when Bella and Reid got separated once again, O'Neal got missing, they managed to make a run to the gate and Winter found a loader where in the end Winter successfully managed to kill the Raven, but however Bella was cross with Reid since she let O'Neal out their to die, but O'Neal convinced Bella that she made her call, and after getting the Comm Tower up and ready, they made it back to Operations.

Saving Bella[]

Quintaro also was went with Winter, O'Neal, Bella, Short, and Redding to find a way to help save Bella from her impregnation she had, and if a Weyland-Yutani Doctor could save her life, on the way to the Weyland-Yutani base, Winter had to stop driving because they could not go any further up any more terrain, they fought their way across more aliens managed to try not be spotted by Yutani forces, as they reached the Yutani facility, without being undetected but being attacked by more aliens, and later getting past security and also they then managed to find a personnel manifest in the facility, where Winter passed the data to Cruz, however this alerted security and also many Yutani forces began ambushing the team, which Quintaro and the team made it through unharmed and they made it to the elevator to below ground.

On the way down, Cruz told Winter and mentioned a USCM Marine of the Sulaco had survived, to Quintaro's relief, it was found he was being held hostage by Weyland-Yutani forces, however O'Neal was unwilling to partake in this but Bella promised him to save his life, O'Neal agreed.

Death of Bella Clarison[]

As Quintaro and the rest thought past more Xenomorph and Yutani forces, they managed to make it past them undetected and managed to reach towards the lab, they reached the facility and their O'Neal caught and captured a Surgeon who which O'Neal told him about Bella who had a facehugger, and that it was impossible to save her, this meaning a placenta was like a weed rooting itself every organ inside Bella's chest, it means it is like a cancer and maybe Bella would die if they tried to save her.

As Bella said goodbye to O'Neal, a chestburster hatched out of her chest, which O'Neal shot it but said and murmured to Bella and said goodbye to her in the end.

Finding Corporal Hicks[]

After the death of Bella Clarison, Cruz told Rhino 2-1 O'Neal their new mission is to save the captured Marine from the Sulaco, they managed to continue on the mission minus Bella, they got and disabled security and all Yutani forces, through the facility and without triggering the alarms which they took out all the forces, even they also managed to take down a APC by using the crane and it's payload, later on they managed to reach a backup module, which O'Neal told Winter about a simple shutdown could cycle back immediately, so Winter, Quintaro and Short, Redding went to turn off the regulator caps in the cells so it won't cause or trigger security after taking out all of the regulator caps they where able to continue finding the marine.

They then managed to fight their way past more security but however they saw the captured Queen which broke free killing many Yutani scientists in that room, and later getting past more Yutani forces, and getting across the facility to reach the captured marine, as later on after getting past Xenomorph and Yutani forces, they got to the captured marine and managed to save his life, however O'Neal was very cross that Cruz knew about him before he authorized it and was never about Bella, Quintaro, and the team headed in the APC back to Hadley's Hope.

Upon arriving back at Hadley's Hope, Winter, O'Neal, Quintaro, Short, and Redding where real angry and pissed at Cruz, O'Neal asked who he was, Cruz had never told Winter about the manifest who he was, and how Bella was going to die, Cruz knew that Bella was going to die, and so should have O'Neal, but they wasn't a force that could have helped Bella, Winter however asked and told Cruz why they risked their own lives to save the only surviving marine from the USS Sulaco alive, as Winter told them about what happened on the Sulaco, Cruz told Winter why, O'Neal demanded to know who he was, it was indeed in fact, Corporal Dwayne Hicks the only sole survivor from the Sulaco left, he told them how he was held by Yutani for months, Bishop told Hicks why he was alive because his file was mistaken K.I.A at "Fury" 161 and their actually Turk was his body really found dead on Fury 161 namesake as Hicks, and that they where their because of his distress call, even as Yutani had kept Hicks alive because he might have had information, O'Neal broke the conversation but Cruz told him about Hicks when it was already too god damn late, he apologized and felt bad about Bella Clarison's life, but told him they had a prisoner in that facility for weeks and Wey-Yu had an FTL ship on the planet, he needed to save the other hundred marines if they where any left to get them off LV-426, Hicks told them about the last FTL would leave but wouldn't come back, but Reid told Cruz that they was two squads of Marines they needed to save at Hadley's Hope.

Saving Marines[]

In almost thirty seconds the horizon would turn black and the most dangerous killing machines would soon attack, while Reid and Hicks went to the APC, Quintaro, along with Winter, Cruz, O'Neal, Short, and Redding managed to kill many of the aliens by fighting their way to the Operations, as they got inside safely, Cruz gave orders to both Winter and his team to use motion-trackers to check for surviving marines, apparently they saw one marine who was killed by a Xenomorph, but they carried on to find any other marines left in the base, eventually finding one marine and rescued him from the debris and helped him to his feet, finding C. Duplis, Duke, Clark, and A. Duplis as well, before regrouping with Cruz, where their new objective was to the Vehicle Bay and which was their new OPS center.

As they reached the Vehicle Bay and Setup a defense perimeter, but suddenly Xenomorphs began swarming in the room but managed to fend the room off full of aliens, with the help of Quintaro, Winter, O'Neal, Cruz, Short, Redding, and A. Duplis, as well, after defending the Vehicle Bay the survivors managed to head to Reid's position where a dropship was waiting, they ran into trouble with a Crusher but they managed to take it down after the beast was very hard to kill, and continued to rendezvous with Reid and Hicks at the drop pad, as they reached the landing platform Reid gave the order to disconnect the dropships fuel lines, but as much of more Xenomorph's started arriving, Hicks helped in the fighting, after eliminating all the remaining Xenos, and with Raider 6-5 taking down all of the Xenos, after the battle, they was a meeting, Cruz welcomed Dwayne Hicks into the Sephora crew, however as Bishop told and asked Hicks's story, Corporal Hicks mentioned that how Samwell Stone and Turk woke him out of Cryo as the only ranking marine, but that the ship was on alert because of Michael Weyland's PMC's that illegally boarded the ship, however meaning how that Ellen Ripley, Rebecca "Newt" Jorden Lance Bishop and the man namesake as Hicks, Turk who was knocked into his tube, Winter asked who's it was, but Hicks told Winter that it was a longer story, but as Cruz told they have to take the facility and get an FTL Ship the only way they would be able to escape LV-426 alive.

Battle of the Weyland-Yutani Research Facility[]

Quintaro, and the team went to the Research Facility and their they would take the last FTL ship before it left the planet, but as Winter told Reid about a ship which was carrying a Queen, Reid was unable to take it down since they had to take out anti-aircraft turrets in the facility, Quintaro, along with, Winter, O'Neal, Hicks, Short, and Redding went through the base even passing cocooned Weyland-Doctors, and as well as fighting their way past facehunggers and xenomorphs until they reached the elevator and down more hallways as well getting past more facehunggers that attacked and xenomorphs as well, after getting past the facility they went again out into daylight and their they went to destroy the AA Guns, to allow both Raider 6-5, Reid, and Raider 6-8, Ruiz because of heavy fire they where firing at them, they had to take down the AA Guns to allow them to get past, they took the first AA Gun down, but they had to take down more.

As the team went to an elevator they managed to head to lower ground and take out more Xenomorphs and Yutani forces that had began to attack them, they managed to reach the second gun where they was three marines taking cover from a large army of Yutani forces, but where saved by Winter, Quintaro and the team, they then took out the AA Gun, and then the next one where Yutani and Xenomorphs where attacking them, as Raider 6-8 began to engage but was shot down by the AA Gun, then the team successfully took down the third and final AA Gun, which allowed Reid to take down the ship carrying the Queen which seemingly killed the Queen, Cruz soon gave the orders to go find Ruiz's dropship which got shot down.

As the team went to find Ruiz and Daggs, they thought their way past more Xenomorphs, as they finally made it to Raider 6-8's crashed bird, they saved the team but however it was found the Queen wasn't dead and broke away from the crashed ship, however it cost the life of Daggs as he was stabbed by her tail whip, but however they did manage to save Ruiz alive and had to try surviving the Queen, as Cruz told they shouldn't engage the Queen, they had to go the FTL ship to stop it from launching, Winter, Quintaro, O'Neal, Hicks, Ruiz, Short, and Redding went to a dropship where Raider 6-5 Reid would be waiting for them, as they thought their way past a lot more Xenomorphs, they managed to reach the FTL ship but where too late, but they had to go onto Reid's dropship to take the FTL ship.

As they took off, they managed to breach the hull of the FTL's hanger and crash land into the ship, but Cruz was injured and too week to carry on.

Leaving LV-426 and attacking the Queen[]

With Cruz barely too week to carry on, he ordered the rest of the team to escape, Reid asked where Cruz was, but Winter told her he would stay behind as a decoy as if anything went wrong then he would sacrifice himself to save the team, and he did say maybe they would be a way to save Cruz, but it wasn't long as they evacuated Reid, Bishop, O'Neal, and Hicks, because the Queen secretly boarded with half of her Xenomorph children on board.

With the Queen that emerged, Winter, Quintaro, Short and Redding however where unable to kill it but had to set the booby trap for it by using a Cargo Launcher for mid-air supply drops by setting it manually, however they managed to do it in the end and they defeated the Queen, even by fighting off some of the Queen's children she got onboard, with a lot of cover firepower given from either Quintaro, Short, or Redding whatever it is decided to make the level quick, Winter was able to activate the Cargo Launcher and this successfully got rid of the Queen.

But it didn't kill her since she survived and got back up and she faced Cruz in the dropship, Quintaro, Winter, and everybody witnessed the Queen attacking Cruz, however Cruz ordered everyone to find Michael Weyland to make him talk and also later to collect the Marines off the surface of LV-426, as Hicks bid farewell to Cruz, he activated the dropship, Reid wished him "Godspeed, Captain." but then as Cruz piloted the damaged dropship out of the hanger it successfully managed to save everybody and kill the Queen in the process, saving both not only Quintaro and Winter, but everybody on the ship.

Finding Michael Weyland and Survival[]

Quintaro (although this was never shown in the cut scene) was one of the men to help capture Weyland, and now Winter in command had to capture him because of the lost Flight Recorder and had to answer him, as they managed to find him O'Neal had him at gun range and however wanted to rather kill Michael Weyland to avenge for the deaths of Captain Jeremey Cruz, Sergeant Keyes, and Private Bella Clarison, and everyone else however Bishop persuaded O'Neal not to shoot Weyland, but Hicks noticing that Weyland wasn't real to anyone's belief he found out that he was actually an Android meaning it was a decoy, but this wasn't' the end or what they lost, Bishop would be able to download any data which mean it wasn't the end for them.

After saving several marines back on LV-426 they now had the information on the Flight Recorder from the USS Sulaco and they now had everything the information, however it can be assumed Quintaro is alive as of 2179 but it is unknown what became of Quintaro after that.


  • Quintaro only appears in the game's co-operative campaign mode, being the character assumed by the second player (in either split-screen or online play). As such his canonicity is debatable.
  • He has a few tattoos on his right arm and a mohawk.
  • There's is a known glitch in the game when playing co-operative where a Facehugger remains on Quintaro or other players sometimes.
  • When being radioed, he will do the exact same pose as Winter does; this also happens with Short and Redding.
  • Quintaro may be of Hispanic decent.
