 Meet Alien: Covenant's Characters in Death Bracket

Meet Alien: Covenant’s characters in Death Bracket.

It’s not the most exciting of features but it gives us some new images of the cast of Alien: Covenant and reveals of the name of Carmen Ejogo and Jussie Smollet’s characters – Karine and Ricks. It also clears up the name of Amy Seimetz’s character; It’s Faris, not Saris.

Keep a close eye on Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on Alien: Covenant! You can follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to get the latest on your social media walls. You can also join in with fellow Alien fans on our forums!

Update #1 – The Alien Anthology Facebook page also shared some character details which you can find below:

“ORAM: As the Covenant’s Executive Officer, he’s second-in-command and ready to step up at a moment’s notice. He’s both a life sciences officer and man of faith.

KARINE: She’s lead biologist for the Covenant, but would have made a great politician. Composed, strategic, and empathetic, Karine is a natural peacemaker.

DANIELS: The mission’s Chief Terraformist, Daniels is a tough and brilliant engineer. While an unassuming realist, her courage and resourcefulness may prove necessary.

FARIS: Covenant co-pilot and ship’s medical support, Faris is a no-frills, no-nonsense type of person with a sharp, irreverent wit. She has no patience for social graces.

RICKS: A military-trained navigator and one half of the Covenant’s navigation team, he’s a former analyst for Weyland-Yutani’s planet scouting initiative.

WALTER: Walter’s been designed to function without creativity and willfulness. He’s programmed with a deep loyalty to the crew members and colonists he serves.

LOPE: Head of the Covenant’s security team, Lope is the most experienced soldier on the ship, having served over a decade for the Colonial Marines.

TENNESSEE: Tennessee is a pilot and member of the Covenant’s bridge crew. Wry, rural, and solid as a rock, he’s a loyal friend, a devoted husband, and a big fan of whiskey.”

  1. The man
    Random soldier gets infected, kills karine  chick...faris chick dies by baby neomorph...oram dies next when David acts like he's saving them...lope dude and the ricks dude die in a search mission looking for oram by regulate xeno that is birthed from oram, I can only assume they stupidly decide to spilt up at the fork in the hallway or something...then you see the xeno drop down and kill ricks in Davids lab and the other douche discovers orams body (which he does in the trailer) just as he hears the scream, run in and is killed also. Which leaves Walter who will sacrifice himself to become part of the evolution of Davids work. The xenos we see in the trailers ON planet will not be the same one on the ship at the end. They defeat the ones on the planet, think they get away, but Walters son (too soon?) More biomechanical and the traditional xeno will hunt down and kill the rest of the d bags...tennesse will die where we see him dying lol and Daniels dies also in some sappy way to create a possibility of a sequel

    As am I, but I think there are caveats to that survival.

    Cut to Alien: Awakening coming out in 2-3 years as we pore over production details and ask each other if Daniels is really a pile of viscera and bone on the floor of David's next lair, or if she is secretly hiding out waiting to take over the movie from its newly-announced stars.

    so how do we need to look into the walter promo and the david8 promo then? and the Peter Weyland TED talk

    Those involve the director, actors, etc. Ridley doesn't run the Facebook account.

    Ridley doesn't fully run Alien franchise either. It belongs to Fox. Studio decides what is canon and what is not. Alien belongs to them.

    That's neither here nor there - Ridley is involved with canonical material, while whoever they hire to run a social media account is tasked with drumming up interest, not maintaining continuity / creating canonical material.

    Colonial Marines has been founded in 2101. Prometheus took place in 2093. Covenant 10 years after which makes it 2103. How Lope could have served over a decade for the Colonial Marines? Retcon?

    Where does that date come from? The old Prometheus timeline? You can't take the viral stuff too seriously.

    I just asked question :) Is viral stuff official or not? It comes from here:

    I learend something more interesting.

    There will be only 1 survivor. I always assumed it would be atleast Tennessee AND Daniels, but seeing that,
    it's a guarantee Daniels will survive.

    which is lame imho, as it would only make it more of copying Alien alltogether.

    If David survives, that means they wont see through his tricks.

    Regarding Lope and his Colonial Marines service.

    Colonial Marines has been founded in 2101. Prometheus took place in 2093. Covenant 10 years after which makes it 2103. How Lope could have served over a decade for the Colonial Marines? Retcon?

    I take it that this is for people who haven't been following the movie too closely. Several of these characters are already seen being "dispatched" in the trailers. It's an interesting idea though; enlarging the bracket with more characters and tidbits like job descriptions or personal history/data would've been cool.
