Here are descriptions of the main Alien Isolation characters including Amanda Ripley, Samuels, Taylor, Verlaine, Marlow and Waits.

Amanda Ripley

Amanda Ripley Alien Isolation CharactersAmanda Ripley is Ellen Ripley’s daughter and she is the protagonist in Alien Isolation. She is voiced by Andrea Deck. Amanda is searching for her mother who went missing on the Nostromo 15 years ago and a Weyland-Yutani employee called Samuels tells her that the Anesidora spacecraft has found the Nostromo flight recorder and have taken it to the nearby Sevestopol Station. Sevestopol is a free port space station owned by the Seegson Corporation and is in orbit around the gas giant KG348. Ripley travels there on the Torrens spacecraft with Samuels, Nina Taylor and Verlaine to recover it. Amanda, Samuels and Taylor cross through space to the Station but their EVA line is severed by debris and they get separated. Ripley makes her way inside the Station and discovers that the crew have resorted to looting and scavenging for supplies and generally being hostile to anybody outside their group. She meets a man called Axel who convinces Ripley to help him if she can get him off the Station. He informs her that a monster is on the loose and a xenomorph soon appears and kills Axel. Ripley comes across the Nostromo flight recorder but finds out that the data is lost and cannot be recovered. She contacts Samuels and Taylor and discovers that Taylor has been injured so she must find medical supplies for her in the Station’s med bay.

Amanda Ripley Alien Isolation Characters

When Ripley meets up with Samuels and Taylor, the three of them are taken into custody by the Station’s Marshall, Waits, and his deputy Ricardo. Waits tells Ripley that the alien was brought aboard by Marlow, captain of the Anesidora, who is currently under arrest. Marlow tells Ripley that the Nostromo’s flight recorder was found nearby a planetoid called LV-426. When they explored LV-426, they discovered a derelict spacecraft and a nest of alien eggs. Marlow’s wife was attacked by a Facehugger and he brought her to Sevestopol Station for treatment. The alien emerged from her and escaped. Waits tells Ripley to lure the alien into a remote section of the Station and to seal it in there. Waits betrays Ripley and seals both her and the xenomorph inside and the module detaches from the Station. Ripley manages to escape using an EVA suit and spacejumps back onto Sevestopol Station.

The Station’s androids soon begin killing the remaining crew including Waits and his men. Later, Ripley discovers Samuels is actually a synthetic and he tries to interface with the Station’s artificial intelligence, APOLLO, to stop the androids. He manages to open a path to APOLLO’s control chamber for Ripley but due to APOLLO’s defensive counter measures, it deactivates Samuels. When Ripley reaches the control chamber, she learns that Sevestopol was recently bought by Weyland-Yutani and they told APOLLO to keep the alien alive. Ripley asks APOLLO why the androids are still killing everybody despite the alien no longer being aboard the Station. APOLLO directs her to the Station’s reactor core where she finds a hive of xenomorphs. She starts a chain of events to purge the reactor which would destroy the hive but the aliens soon escape into the Station.

Amanda Ripley Alien Isolation Characters

Ricardo tells Ripley that Taylor was sent by Weyland-Yutani to retrieve the xenomorph and she freed Marlow in exchange for the location of LV-426. Marlow takes Taylor hostage and brings her to his ship the Anesidora with Ripley and Ricardo in pursuit. There, Marlow at attempts to detonate the Anesidora’s fusion reactor to destroy Sevestopol Station to ensure the alien never escapes. Taylor kills Marlow while he is talking with Ripley and they attempt to prevent the reactor from exploding. Taylor is killed by an electrical overload from the reactor and Ripley escapes just before the ship explodes. The explosion doesn’t destroy Sevestopol but it damages it enough to send it falling into KG348’s atmosphere. Ripley and Ricardo contact the Torrens for evacuation but Ricardo is attacked by a Facehugger. Ripley continues to get off the Station and must help the Torrens dock on the Station. She is about to grab an EVA suit when a xenomorph attacks her and she wakes up cocooned to a wall. By this point, Sevestopol Station is on fire and she creeps her way through the hive avoiding the numerous xenomorphs. She puts on her EVA suit and releases the Torrens from the Station and spacejumps to the Torrens. She boards the ship just before Sevestopol loses orbit but Ripley loses contact with Verlaine. She soon discovers that a xenomorph has boarded the ship and has no choice but to hit the emergency airlock release, jettisoning both her and the alien into space. Ripley is alone floating in space unconscious and a light shines on her face from another ship.
