Ripley: I've seen the creature, what is it?

The Sevastopol Drone or also known simply as "The Creature" is another iconic Xenomorph and main antagonist of the 2014 first-person survival/horror/stealth videogame Alien: Isolation. The Creature comes to be after a member of the Anesidora space ship crew, Catherine Foster, is infected by an alien facehugger and impregnated by it. The Drone begins to hunt the remaining members of the crew of Sevastopol to it's Xenomorph nest in order to produce more Xenomorphs.

It is a sibling of the Nostromo Drone.

History

Beginnings

In 2137, the Anesidora investigated the "distress signal" coming from the derelict on LV-426. The Alien started as an Ovomorph that was found by Catherine Foster, however she got to close to it and a facehugger latched onto her, although her crew put her into stasis and got her to Sevastapol Station, the facehuggers impregnating process was already complete and several moments later a Chestburster killed Catherine, it escaped and grew up into the Drone, it terrorized the population of Sevastapol, killing many people and eventually established a hive within the station, it became the most feared creature on the station as it seeks out survivors.

Waits and the remains of his crew, Harris, Garcia and Turner, Attempted to track the Alien down in engineering, however when Garcia opened the door the Xenomorph quickly head bit Garcia, Harris charged at the Alien, however he was impaled by its tail, Waits and Turner managed to drive the Alien back with their shot guns and close the door, however the Xenomorph uses the vents to get back into the room, Turner quckily realises this and aims his shot gun at the vent above him, however the Xenomorph makes the grate fall on Turners head and abducted him, most likely taking him to the hive.

A survivor named Clark shoots another survivor named Ross, mistaking him for the Alien, however Ross is revealed to be alive and asks Clark for help, however the real Xenomorph appears through the door, although Ross begs Clark not to leave him, Clark, driven by fear, enters the elevator, Ross screaming as the door closes, Ross was most likely abducted.

In the game

It appears for the first time after impaling Alex with its tail and dragging him into the vent, after this the Alien is unleashed on Ripley and can appear out of a vent at random, Ripley asks a doctor named Kuhlman to heal Nina, after doing his requests, he goes to get his medical supplies, however the Alien is waiting for him behind the door and takes Kuhlman into the shadows, another Alien Drone attempts to capture Ripley, Ripley mistaking it the same Drone, while Ripley Attempted to escape the burning Sevastapol Station that is slowly falling into the gas giant KG-348, however once she escapes the Station and renters the USCSS Torrens, Ripley is confused to why Diane is not responding to her, this is shortly answered after the real Drone has been revealed to have sneaked onto the Torrens and has either killed Diane or she is too scared to talk and alert the Drone of her presence, the Drone slowly walks up to Ripley, however before it can head bite her, Ripley opens the air lock, flinging both her and the Alien through space, the Drone either got flinged into KG-348 and burned to death, was left out in space, or was captured by Weypand Enterprises to be used as a test subject in their goal to make Xenomorph Slaves.

Characteristics

The Xenomorph Drone acts similar to an ordinary Drone, however, it does not use acid spit and it doesent climb on walls, it can also get more intelligent, as of Ripley uses lockers too much to hide from the Alien, it will eventually start searching lockers and try to peek into lockers, forcing Ripley to hold her breath too avoid detection, if Ripley hides under cabinets too much to hide from the Alien, it will start searching under cabinets, if Ripley keeps using flares or noise making devices to distract the Xenomorph, it will learn to simply ignore them, it is also aware of things that pose a threat to it, as if Ripley wields a flamethrower and fires it at the Drone, it will run to the nearest vent and retreat, even just simply pulling out a flamethrower will make the Alien pause in its advance to Ripley, however the Alien is capable of evolving its armor, to the point where it once ran from it, the Alien will now only be stunned for a bit and not retreat if Ripley uses the flamethrower too much, the Alien is also aware of things that are not organic like Working Joes, as if it is close to a Working Joe, it will not attack it and just simply ignore it.

The Sevastapol Drone bore characteristics of generic Drones and its late Nostromo sibling, but unlike the latter, it had more updated appearance due to spike on the tail taking more blade-like shape. Also, unlike Nostromo Drone, it not stalking its victims just to killing them, as some of them were captured alive as hosts for other Ovomorphs for building new Hive and spawning a queen, showing it had greater purpose in life.

As seen when it stalking survivors, it will sometimes randomly inspecting various places to hide whenever a victim nearby. Because of it, one should never hid in the same place very often, as in the next few encounters, Sevastapol Drone would likely examining the said place. Also, since it capable to learn from experience, Ripley must not drive it with same methods twice.

Trivia

  • Unlike other Xenomorphs, the Alien drags its tail behind it, only raising it when searching for Ripley.
  • The Xenomorph Drone has killed 12 known victims (excluding Catherine Foster), however it is stated that the Alien has claimed a lot more victims off screen, it is also capable of killing survivors if Ripley or the survivors themselves attract the Xenomorph to them, before the Alien came, Sevastapol's population was 500, the Xenomorph Drone's kill count is staggering to imagine, this makes the Alien arguably the most deadliest Xenomorph to ever appear, rivaling, and possibly surpassing the likes of the Dragon, Mozart and Specimen 6.
    • However Specimen 6 has killed not only 2 young blood Predators, but also an elite Predator without aid.
      • It is unknown if the Xenomorph Drone is capable of killing a Predator, however if it can, it would be the deadliest Xenomorph in the Alien franchise.
    • The Alien has the highest kill count in the Xenomorph Drone sub-species.
  • The Drone can be thought as some sort of sibling to the same Xenomorph that hunted Ripley's mother due to them coming from the same patch of Ovomorphs.
  • If the Alien is standing still, it is possible to see its dorsal tubes vibrating, possibly an organ that helps it sense things informs of it due to Xenomorph's lack of eyes.
  • Although the Xenomorph Drone can bleed the iconic acidic blood of the Xenomorph species, the blood is not very acidic, and can be walked on without getting hurt, either this is an type of evolution due to living on Sevastapol, or the acidic effect was scrapped and just kept the blood effect.
  • Though its appearance resembles its Nostromo sibling, its tail blade far more like a slashing weapon like the Warrior's. This of course, due to its appearance more updated than its Nostromo sibling whom happened to be very first Xenomorph whom conceived for Alien franchise.
