"USG Ishimura, this is the emergency maintenance team of the USG Kellion responding to your distress call. Come in Ishimura."
—Chen[1][2]

Corporal Chen was the pilot of the USG Kellion and a member of the shuttle's security detail.

Chen was the first individual to communicate to the USG Ishimura. He was able to successfully crash land the Kellion aboard the planet cracker despite a failure in the auto-docking procedure.

Chen was later killed by a Slasher in the Flight Lounge. After being detained by the automatic quarantine, the Necromorph took advantage of the distraction and blindsided him as he attempted to kill the creature that beheaded the fellow security officer and co-pilot, Corporal Johnston. He was pounced on and bitten in the throat, which caused the Corporal's Security RIG to flat-line almost immediately.

By the time Isaac Clarke returned to the Flight Lounge, Chen's (Along with Johnston's) body already vanished, suggesting he had been transformed into a Necromorph.

TriviaEdit

  • Chen's attempt to hail the Ishimura from Chapter 1 remained identical in Chapter 10 of Dead Space: Extraction and differed only at the end of Dead Space: Downfall.
  • The Vanishing Man in Chapter 4 of Dead Space resembled a battered Chen.
    • In fact, the Vanishing Man in Chapter 4 of Dead Space could be a hallucination of Chen, saying that the vanishing man was more than likely a hallucination and his resemblance to Chen and Isaac probably started hallucinating at this point.
    • Alternately, as the Vanishing Man is simply a reused  bloody model of Chen, as many of the other bodies of male crew members did, this may be a simple case of asset reuse rather than trying to portray Chen.
  • Chen was the second crew member of the USG Kellion to be killed after Johnston.
  • For reasons unknown, Chen was programmed to shoot at the wall instead at the Necromorph who attacked his fellow co-pilot, Johnston.
