"Do you see her, Isaac? Is she waiting? Tell her I'm sorry. Tell her I'm sorry!"
Nolan Stross to Isaac Clarke about the apparition of Alexis.[1]

Alexis Stross was the wife of Nolan Stross. She appeared in Dead Space: Aftermath.


Mission to Aegis VII[]

Alexis joined her husband Nolan on the crew of the USG O'Bannon prior to the ship's mission to Aegis VII, bringing along their infant son. Alexis was said to be constantly stressed, arguing with Nolan over their crumbling marriage. She was ignored by Nolan, who claimed that she was ruining the only few minutes that he could spare with her and his son.

Alexis pointed out her suspicion of him having an affair with Isabel Cho. Nolan denied this, telling his wife that he brought them with him so they could be together, which Alexis countered by telling him that she only came because she nagged him to take her. Nolan stubbornly left Alexis to comfort their crying son.


Nolan hallucinating Alexis as a Necromorph.

Later on, a hallucinating Nolan Stross entered their suite to protect her and their son, only to see the both of them as creatures. Nolan first killed his son, and Alexis, horrified, screamed at him that he was attacking their child and pleaded for him to stop, only to be attacked in return by her hallucinating husband. A grievously wounded Alexis weakly asked why, only to be smashed across the head, killing her.

Shortly after Alexis' death, Isabel Cho walked in to see the horror that had just unfolded, but Nolan simply stated that his family was alive and safe and that he had only killed two monsters that were going to hurt them.

Apparition on Titan Station[]

"Step 4. She'll be waiting. She'll be waiting. She's always waiting. Staring. Asking. I don't know the answer. After the screws, after the needle, she'll be waiting."
—Nolan Stross about seeing Alexis after using the Noonlight Diagnostics Machine.

On Titan Station, Stross was haunted by hallucinations of his dead wife and son, often saying that they were watching him and that Alexis would be waiting for him after the sessions with the Noonlight Diagnostics Machine. Stross also somewhat believed that they were still alive.[2][3]


  • Unlike her son who appeared as a Lurker in Stross' hallucination, Alexis did not appear as a known Necromorph. In fact, she simply appeared almost as a traditional zombie, with a thin body with hollowed out facial features and empty eye sockets.
  • Alexis was voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.
