You're a dangerous secret, Isaac.
~ Daina to Isaac upon revealing her true nature.

Daina Le Guin is a major antagonist in Dead Space 2. She is a Unitologist who wants to continue the makings of Markers, and manipulates Isaac Clarke into following her location.

She was voiced and modeled after Tahyna Tozzi.


Outbreak on the Sprawl

Prior to the Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl, the Unitologists on Titan Station planned to release Isaac Clarke from his EarthGov enforced stay in the asylum, Daina spearheading this effort.

Daina and Tyler Radikov are among the Unitologists who participate in the sabotage of the Government Sector and the provision of false information to recent Unitologist inductee, Karrie Norton (codenamed "Vandal"). The crossover tubes open and Necromorphs set loose on the station, Daina contacts Norton, thanking her for the spread of the infection, believing her death at their hands will be "glorious".

Shortly after the station is overrun, Daina and Unitologists set their plans in motion. Franco Delille frees Isaac and he tries to warn him of his current predicament only to be killed and transformed by an Infector. Daina, monitoring Franco's progress, urges Isaac to run before the Necromorphs in his area can kill him. Contacting him directly, Daina offers her assistance in Isaac's escape, promising to cure him of his dementia.

His initial behavior is extremely uncooperative and cantankerous, Isaac spurns her help and Daina leaves him on his own until he contacts her, reluctantly admitting she is his best chance to escape the station alive. Daina explains to Isaac what happened the three years he's been on the Sprawl. He is a target of Hans Tiedemann, who presumably wants him dead for his connections to incident on the Ishimura and Aegis VII.

Daina leads Isaac from the Titan Memorial Medical Center to Cassini Towers. In there he's ambushed by Tiedemann's gunship and Daina urges him to enter into the Titan Station Church of Unitology. Herein he begins to suspect her intentions as he wonders why Daina wanted to meet with him here. Isaac hesitates going deeper and deeper into the complex, believing the church a dangerous location. Daina, unhappy with his continued behavior, reminds him that she lost a brother saving him and knows her plan will work. She directs him to a safe room on top of the complex and waits for his arrival. Daina reveals nothing of her intentions until Isaac reaches the rendezvous point and two of her men apprehend him.

Within her grasp, Daina reveals the "cure" for Isaac's dementia was a ruse to lure him to her. Unlike Tiedemann and the Earth Government, who want the likes of Isaac and Nolan Stross dead, Daina and the Unitologists need him alive to maintain the "blueprint" the Red Marker imprinted on his mind in order for the church to create their own Markers and start the outbreaks across the Universe.

After revealing her plans to Isaac, an EarthGov Gunship destroys the shuttle docked outside and proceeds to penetrate the room's containment glass. The gunfire from the ship dismembers and kills Daina and her accomplices, allowing Isaac the chance to escape from both groups. Daina's plan ultimately fail, as Isaac destroys the marker, and escapes with the help of Ellie Langford.



  • Daina is the second character in the series to betray Isaac Clarke, the first being Kendra Daniels.
    • Daina is also the second character to mention of having a brother, the first being Kendra. That being said, there is a possibility she was lying to goad Isaac in going into the Church of Unitology.
  • In the demo for Dead Space 2, Daina has brown hair and is modeled different than in the final release.
