This is Commander Cadigan! We have hostiles on board! This is NOT a drill! Hostiles are alien, repeat, ALIEN and extremely dangerous! All personnel have weapons ready and fire at will![1]


F. Cadigan was the commander of the USM Valor and was charged with Operation: WHITE LIGHT. At some point after the USM Valor entered the Aegis Cluster, Isaac Clarke successfully launched an SOS beacon which the Valor's crew immediately picked up on. En route to the USG Ishimura, they intercepted an escape pod launched from the Ishimura.

He was described to be having brown hair. His eyes are round and black. He was taller than Isaac Clarke, but a little bit thicker. His ethnicity was Caucasian.

Unfortunately, the pod contained a Slasher. It was unknown exactly what occurred aboard the USM Valor, but by the time the ship reached the USG Ishimura, the majority of the ship's personnel are either dead or infected. What was known, however was that Commander Cadigan alerted his crew to the presence of the Necromorphs, signifying that he at least was able to respond to the attack.[note 1] Isaac found the following log.

  ATTN: COMMANDER CADIGAN, F.
  OPERATION WHITE LIGHT
  THEATER: AEGIS SYSTEM, PLANET PENDING

  CEC vessel USG Ishimura in breach of
  government order. They are believed to have
  recovered Marker 3A. Special Ops
  confirmed the system, but was unable
  to provide the planet's location.
  Special Ops advised caution. If Marker 3A
  was recovered, infection by a lethal
  organism was a credible threat.
  Shockpoint to Aegis system, move to
  position out of local scope range and await
  signal from Ishimura to confirm location.

NotesEdit

  1. It is unknown exactly how or when Commander F. Cadigan was killed beyond the fact that he was dead before Isaac Clarke entered the USM Valor.
Considering the comms officer aboard the USM Valor and what was probably the engineer were seen doing anything, with all other members of the crew seen wounded, dead, or dying, and all are wearing body armor that conceals the face, it is difficult to tell what Commander F. Cadigan looked like.
