The Second Aegis VII Incident
Albert Rutterschmidt was part of the Aegis VII Colony and the Concordance Extraction Corporation and a member of one of its Dig Teams along with Hans Leggio. Two weeks prior to the Planet Cracking incident, Rutterschmidt committed suicide by his own revolver. His corpse was discovered by the USG Ishimura Security Force and brought into the Morgue on the spaceship. When the outbreak occurred, he was reanimated by an Infector and changed into a Slasher.
