Manning was a mercenary and the leader of a private military team. In 2497, Manning and his men were hired by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation for a mission to New Galveston, the intention being to capture a live Xenomorph for the company to study. The operation suffered massive casualties, although the few survivors did successfully capture several viable specimens.

Personality and Traits

Manning's personality was that of a bully, using his size to intimidate people and using brute force when that did not work. While holding some degree of care towards his crew-members, he is quick to follow Andrea Rollins' orders even when it endangers his men. While amoral, he does himself become increasingly disturbed by the lengths Rollins was prepared to go to get what she wanted.
