Sven was a mercenary and a member of Max Stafford's private military team.[4] In 2004, Stafford's team was hired by Charles Bishop Weyland to accompany a Weyland Industries expedition to Bouvetøya, Antarctica. The expedition's objective was to investigate an ancient Pyramid buried beneath the ice there, with Stafford's team present to provide security. The Pyramid was discovered to be a Yautja temple and hunting ground where the Predators would breed Xenomorphs for use in their Hunts, and the expedition soon became caught up in the battle between the two species.

Sven was killed when the Predators raided the expedition's surface camp.


Prior to joining Stafford's private military outfit, Sven had been a United States Navy SEALs, despite his Swedish heritage.[2] During the expedition to Antarctica, Sven was left at the team's base camp on the surface to secure it against both weather and intruders. While most of the team was exploring the pyramid below, the camp was attacked by Scar, Celtic and Chopper, and then men there were quickly slaughtered. Sven was among the last to perish, dying when one of the Predators nailed him to the wall of a hut inside which he had been sheltering with a hurled Combistick.


As with the majority of Stafford's mercenaries, Sven was armed with a Heckler & Koch G36C carbine fitted with a flashlight and lime green laser sight while guarding the comp at Razorback Point.
