You falling apart on us, Sarge? Maybe Irons here can sign you up with the Unitologists; they seem pretty at peace with this bullshit.[1]

Ramirez was a member of the P.C.S.I. Security team led by Alissa Vincent.[1]


Ramirez signed up for the job of being in the USG Ishimura security team through pressure from his father in regards to his apparent lack of bravery and strength. He was not willing to enter a full military service and put his life on the line, feeling that he would fare better by avoiding any form of confrontations. Ramirez never felt ready for war and being involved with any such events back on Earth. After deciding that he was not up for a life of combat, Ramirez took a new career path in Security because of his smart and quick thinking when it came to using electronics. He always believed his father to be wrong about his character and how he had what it took to be a soldier, but felt safer in being away from it all.

The Second Aegis VII Incident[]

Throughout the duration of the Necromorph attack on the Ishimura, Ramirez saved Alissa from the crazed Hanson and helped her rescue some of the civilians left on board while also killing countless Necromorphs in the process.

Ramirez eventually began to succumb to the psychological effects caused by Marker 3A, stating how they were "in [his] head", therefore deciding to stay behind to stop himself from eventually going insane and trying to kill Vincent like Hanson had. Ramirez brandished his plasma saw at Vincent and forced her to stay behind the door, briefly stating that it was an honor serving with her before locking the blast doors. The sound of the plasma saw was heard briefly, followed by pained screaming. He made a final appearance as an apparition to Alissa, instructing her to 'Finish the job; save the ship'.


  • Ramirez was to be part of the Graverobber, but it was cut from the movie.
    • While it appeared that the apparition was helping Alissa, it was actually the Marker using her to bring more people into the vicinity in order to spread the contagion (much like how Amelia Kyne persuaded Dr. Kyne to return the Marker to the planet in order to implant its codes in his mind).
