"They turn us on ourselves; if they don't kill us all, we will kill ourselves."

Samuel Irons was an engineering specialist and Unitologist who worked aboard the USG Ishimura. He was a very large man with strong faith in his religion.

Biography Edit

"I'm not a hero, just a man." He first appeared when a protesting crowd of workers demanded to see the Marker. He manages to calm down the crowd by telling them that if they interfere, the scientists of the Church will be unable to decipher the meaning of the inscriptions and thus ruin a chance of enlightenment.

Irons later appears during an attack on Alissa Vincent and her crew. He manages to save them using a mining tool called the plasma saw, having discovered that the Necromorphs die faster if they are dismembered. He eventually had joined their crew and helped make it to the Bridge, where they discovered that the gravitational controls had been overridden and the ship was on course to crash into Aegis VII. Along the way to the control room, the crew discovered a group of survivors being attacked by Necromorphs.

Vincent offered to distract the Necromorphs while Irons and Ramirez help the survivors escape. Irons, however, forced Vincent to relinquish her role and he instead distracted the Necromorphs. He fought valiantly but ultimately was stabbed in the chest and surrounded by Necromorphs. Mortally wounded and surrounded, Irons resigned himself to his fate and was killed while muttering a verse from a book of Unitology. After he was killed by the Necromorphs, he was transformed into one by an Infector right before Vincent and Ramirez's eyes. He can be seen as a Necromorph briefly later on.

Trivia Edit

  • Irons would have become a part of the Graverobber, a variant of Necromorph exclusive to the film, but the creature was ultimately cut.
  • Irons carries a miniature marker as his necklace.
  • It's strange that his RIG health does not decrease when he was first stabbed by a Slasher. This might mean he could have survived his wound or that his RIG may have been broken or simply a mistake made by the developers.
  • Irons is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
