The Second Aegis 7 IncidentEdit

Elizabeth Cross was one of the few survivors aboard the USG Ishimura during the USG Kellion's arrival. Elizabeth spends a great deal of time looking for her boyfriend, 2nd Engineer Jacob Temple. Unlike Jacob, during her travels throughout the ship, she was usually alone. While Isaac Clarke makes no direct contact with Elizabeth Cross, many of her audio logs can be found about the ship, one of which questions why they cannot send their surplus of food to the colony of Aegis VII despite the Captain's "No-Fly" order.[1] During the dementia, chaos spread within the Ishimura, Cross abandoned her position and went looking for Temple.[2]


Eventually, Cross reunited with Temple in the Mining Deck, and the two attempted to escape together; they first attempt to send out a distress beacon.[3][4] However, at some point during their initial escape, the two lovers were captured by Challus Mercer.[5] The deranged doctor tied up Cross and Temple, then taped both of their mouths shut. Elizabeth was eventually murdered by Mercer when he stuck a metal spike into her forehead, killing her instantly. Shortly after the death of Elizabeth, Isaac Clarke makes his way to the scene, and watched helplessly as Jacob was murdered as well.


  • It's unknown how Mercer managed to capture Cross and her lover, but when Mercer is about to kill Temple, he says that "Dr. Cross was a true believer. She had faith. And now she awaits her transformation". This let implied that Elizabeth eventually succumbed to the dementia and gave herself and Temple to the crazed doctor. This is also hinted by the fact that she is found lying dead on the floor fetterless, unlike Jacob who had been gagged and tied to a chair.
  • Elizabeth Cross was one of the first crew-members aboard the USG Ishimura to learn of The Leviathan.[6]
  • Challus Mercer's reason for stabbing Elizabeth in the forehead was the thought that an Infector could very easily convert the body of Cross into a Necromorph.
  • Cross is murdered just moments before her boyfriend Jacob Temple.
  • Several audio logs from Elizabeth Cross can be found throughout the USG Ishimura in Dead Space.
  • The bodies of Cross and Temple are found in Chapter 10: End of Days in Dead Space.
  • The death of Cross cannot be seen.
