"That's why God made you corps and gave you a gun, Jhalil."
"Didn't do Schrader any damn good.
―Sergeant Roth and Wearing (from Prometheus: Life and Death)

Schrader was a member of the United States Colonial Marine Corps. He was part of a 31-Marine platoon under the command of Captain Paget, aboard the combat ship Hasdrubal that landed on the planet LV-797 under investigation of potential asset-strippers, eventually encountering an Engineer Juggernaut and a clan of Yautja defending it.

He was killed by the Cracked Tusk Predator, being decapitated from behind during an ambush on Sergeant Roth's squad.


Skirmish on Tartarus[]

Schrader was part of the combat ship Hasdrubal on a mission to prosecute any potential illegal prospectors on the planet LV-797, nicknamed Tartarus. The Hasdrubal was serving the interests of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, which had scheduled the planet for terraforming.

After the Marines landed on Tartarus, they were soon attacked by a clan of Yautja, resulting in the killing of several search parties.

Paget decided to send Sergeant Roth and his team, consisting of Schrader, Wearing, Jhalil, Freebody, Rucker, Singer, and others into one of their drophships to fly over to the Juggernaut and secure the interior, whilst Paget's team approached the vessel by foot, attempting to sweep the forest using M314 Motion Trackers to flush out the hunters.



Corporal Wearing looks over Schrader's corpse.

Roth's squad eventually patrolled the Juggernaut interior and found the cockpit. The Elder Cracked Tusk Predator, unbeknownst to the other Marines, had followed them into the cockpit. Whilst Schrader was conversing with Wearing, he was suddenly decapitated from behind by the hunter. After Cracked Tusk was finally killed by Captain Humble, Schrader's corpse was lined up with the Predator's and a cloth was put over him and his killer.
