Perry was a medical officer on board the USG Ishimura who worked alongside Nicole Brennan during the initial stages of the Second Aegis VII incident. Perry was devoted to his career and did not sleep for 24 hours for the safety of the injured. He also tried to help the very first Necromorph victim at the beginning of the outbreak.
He refused to join Nathan McNeill and his team, deciding to stay at the Clinic in order to help the injured. He was decapitated by a Necromorph a few moments later in front of the McNeill.
