I have the Marker, and this entire system can go to hell. For what it's worth, you did a great job, Isaac. See you around... Or maybe not.
~ Kendra to Isaac.

Kendra Daniels is the main antagonist in the Dead Space, video game from 2008. She is a computer specialist aboard the USG Kellion repair vessel and an undercover agent working for the EarthGov government. She was voiced by and modelled after Tonantzin Carmelo.


Little is known about Kendra's life prior to her journey to USG Ishimura, but it is very possible that she participated in many of EarthGov's spy missions. She was strongly recommended as a team member on the USG Kellion repair vessel by the CEC.

USG Ishimura Incident

Immediately after an emergency landing on the USG Ishimura in the launch hangar, the crew of the USG Kellion goes to the waiting room on the Flight Deck. After activating the quarantine in the waiting room, after a short while the entire crew is attacked by the Necromorphs, almost immediately massacring two of the ship's pilots. Kendra manages to bypass the door lock and runs away with Hammond, while Isaac runs away through the other exit to look for some place without the Necromorphs. After the cable car is repaired, Kendra and Hammond go to the Bridge. Hammond will have him return to Kellion to have him start up a damage report. Unfortunately, the ship explodes, destroying the three survivors' only escape route. After a short while of searching for information about the ship's captain on the officers' computer, Kendra and Hammond are attacked by Leaper and separated.

Kendra escapes from the Bridge and loses Hammond. After a long wandering, Kendra manages to find refuge in Ishimura's Computer Core. She manages to contact Isaac and Hammond through their RIG suits, telling them where she is and that she has hacked the base and has access to everything, so she can actively assist them on a repair mission by opening blocked doors, telling them where to go and discovering what really happened on the ship. Kendra openly distrusts Hammond, claiming that he hides something about the Marker and knows much more than he says. Kendra is also more nervous, telling them to abort the entire mission and focus on escaping from the ship.

Later in the game due to the Marker's influence, Kendra begins to hallucinate, causing her to see her brother on the monitor screen waving his hand at her as if nothing had happened. Kendra tells Isaac that "that's not possible," which could mean her brother is most likely dead or never sent to work aboard the ship. Apparently, Kendra forgot about her hallucinations, telling Isaac that he had gone mad himself. It is very possible that she is not fully aware of her damaged sanity and consciousness, or her hallucinations were just a trick.

Betrayal and Death

In the penultimate chapter, Kendra was to leave her position in Ishimura's Computer Core and meet Isaac and Dr. Kyne at their shuttle with the Marker. It turns out that Kendra has already sneaked there. As Isaac runs to the shuttle to meet the doctor, Kendra shoots him straight in the chest with her Divet pistol to secure the shuttle and its cargo. Dr. Kyne dies and the shuttle flies away, leaving Isaac to die.

On board of the shuttle, Kendra uses her RIG link to reveal to Isaac that she is a secret agent specially sent on a repair mission to the USG Kellion by her employers. She also tells him the truth about the Marker, how it was created, and its true purpose. Kendra says goodbye to him and flies away. After a while, Nicole contacts Isaac, telling him that they can pull the shuttle back to the hangar together. As the shuttle returns to the hangar, an angry Kendra tells Isaac that it is not over and she evacuates from the shuttle using the escape pod and lands in the colony on Aegis VII. With Nicole's help, Isaac manages to bring the Mark to the colony and place it on a pedestal. An electromagnetic shock causes a piece of the planet held by Ishimiura to head straight towards the colony. When Isaac enters the decontamination room, Kendra locks him up there and takes the Mark back again. She also tells him that Nicole was dead all this time and that the person he was talking to was just an illusion of the Marker.

However, Kendra made the fatal mistake of taking the Mark and signed herself a death warrant.

Kendra takes Marker back to the shuttle to take it to the EarthGov government for research. Isaac reaches the shuttle just as Kendra is about to board it. Before she can do so, however, the Hive Mind rises from a mining crater and hits Kendra with its tentacle. Kendra screams in fear as another tentacle hits her, knocking her unconscious, then slaps her body against the wall, dismembering her completely. Kendra's heart rate monitor goes blank immediately, signifying her death.

Kendra failed to obtain the Marker because it was destroyed along with the Hive Mind when a piece of the planet struck the colony. Despite the losses, the government continued to create Marks using codes hidden in Isaac's brain and other research subjects (because their minds were influenced by the Marker).



  • Kendra mentions seeing her brother at one point, indicating that she has a sibling. However, she claims that the experience was "impossible", implying that her brother is either dead or was never assigned to work on the Ishimura. Considering that the Marker tends to use hallucinations of dead relatives to manipulate the mind, the former is more than likely the truth.
  • Kendra Daniels was named one of the 'Hottest Video Game Babes of 2008' by Maxim Magazine.
  • There are more than a few similarities between Kendra Daniels and Daina Le Guin of Dead Space 2. Both Kendra and Daina initially start off as allies to Isaac, only to betray him at a pivotal moment. Both work for established organizations that have plans concerning the Marker, albeit different plans and organizations. Both are skilled computer technicians, as demonstrated by Kendra's role on the USG Kellion repair team, and Daina's tracking and various technical assistance provided during Clarke's journey to the top of the Church. Both are also killed in brutal ways, as both of their bodies are dismembered in front of Clarke.
