Dead Space Wiki

It's been the same old thing here. Working hard with the guys, looking at the stars. You wake up - eat breakfast - do systems backup - calibrate instruments - you can imagine how much fun it must be. And next I'll survey deep space for ten hours. That's right; when your friends ask you what your daddy does, you can tell them - he stares into space.[1]

Gavin Becker was a scientist and a member of an observation team that was assigned to a station near the Aegis Cluster.[1]


Little information is available about the early life of Gavin Becker other than the fact that he was a Martian. At some point, he married and had a child.[2]


At some point, Becker was placed aboard an observational craft, presumably by EarthGov, as a safeguard against a second incident in the Aegis System.

The Second Aegis VII Incident[]

"This is early bird reporting sir. Aegis Seven has been breached."
—Agent Becker[1]

When the observation post received the USG Ishimura's distress beacon, Becker immediately notified his commanding officer about the situation. To his horror, he was instructed to carry out "Eventuality 1-17": an immediate elimination of all of the witnesses. His attempt to argue that such a drastic action was not necessary was met with implied danger to his family if he failed to "do [his] job". In order to prevent the amplification of the Ishimura's S.O.S., Becker murdered both of his colleagues. Unable to face his actions, he exposed himself to the hard vacuum and subsequently perished.
