"She was only a voice at first. But now she is my constant companion again. I had forgotten how much her presence soothes me. And as always, she sees to the heart of the problem."
—Dr. Terrence Kyne about the apparition of Amelia.[1]

Second Aegis VII Incident[]

"But... Amelia-? No, Amelia, wait... We said we'd go together..."
—Terrence Kyne's dying words.[2]

According to Dr. Challus Mercer, Amelia had died seven years before the events on Aegis VII, yet Kyne was claiming to, somehow, have spoken to her.

DSR Kyne Amelia Messages

Terrence Kyne's working space in his hideout on the USG Ishimura. Note the messages to "Amelia".

In reality, Marker 3A had recreated the image of Amelia in the mind of Terrence, which was similar to the recreation of Nicole Brennan who appeared before Isaac Clarke. Kyne was fully deceived by this hallucination even though he was previously aware that his wife was dead. It was known that the apparition of Amelia repeatedly told Terrence to "Make [them] whole", just like what "Nicole" said to Isaac.

The purpose of this hallucination was to trick Terrence into taking the Marker to its pedestal on Aegis VII, telling him that it would return the Hive Mind to its sleep, with the Marker's true intentions being to imprint its blueprints in the doctor's mind.[3] Terrence's dying words seemed to indicate that he was seeing Amelia walking away from him, indicating the Marker abandoning the dying scientist as a potential vessel for its signal.[2]
