"What've you got on you? Is that blood?"
—Johnston to Isaac Clarke.

Corporal Hailey Johnston was a member of Zach Hammond's CEC Security Team, specializing in heavy weapons and riot control.[1] She had served alongside Hammond and Corporal Aiden Chen for years.


The Second Aegis VII Incident[]

Hailey Johnston was one of the pilots of the USG Kellion during its repair mission to the USG Ishimura. After the crash of the Kellion, Johnston sustained an injury to her ankle and was assigned to stay with the ship while Isaac Clarke, Kendra Daniels, Hammond and Chen explored the Ishimura.

Eventually, Isaac returned to the Kellion in the hangar to check on the ship and the injured Johnston. Johnston revealed that she was unaware of Chen's death and the Ishimura being overrun with Necromorphs due to comms being down. As the two checked the ship's damage reports, they found that Leapers were damaging the ship's singularity core. The two attempted to escape, but Johnston spotted an approaching Slasher and fired at it. Moments later, the singularity core's damage caused the ship to explode, with the initial blast fatally injuring Johnston. Before he could process his colleague's death, Isaac was knocked back out of the ship onto the hangar by the resulting explosion that completely destroyed the Kellion.


"Johnston": "You ready to hit the bar?"
"Chen": "We've sure as hell earned it. First the crash, then nothing working around here..."
Isaac Clarke hears the voices of Johnston and Chen during one of his hallucinations.

As Isaac passed by the Ishimura's mess hall after coming into close contact with Marker 3A on the Crew Deck, he heard the voices of Johnston and Chen as a result of his Marker-induced dementia, with "Johnston" asking "Chen" if he was ready to hit the ship's bar: a reference to what the real Chen had said following the Kellion's crash landing.

  • Johnston's charred corpse can be discovered upon returning to the Kellion's wreck by flying to it.


"Huh. That doesn't look good. She's taken a lot of damage."
—Johnston noticing the damage report of the USG Ishimura.

Corporal Johnston was the co-pilot of the USG Kellion. Like Corporal Chen, Johnston was under the command of Zach Hammond.


Johnston was the first crew member of the USG Kellion to be killed by a Necromorph. A Slasher snuck up from behind and decapitated him. His primary weapon was a SWS Motorized Pulse Rifle, but Johnston never had the chance to effectively use the weapon.

By the time Isaac Clarke returned to the Flight Lounge to prepare the Kellion for launch, Johnston's corpse had already vanished along with Chen's, suggesting he had been transformed into a Necromorph.
