Clive William[1] was an inmate at the Fiorina "Fury" 161 Class C Work Correctional Unit, one of several who stayed behind after the facility was officially closed down by Weyland-Yutani. He was involved in battling a lone Xenomorph that was born in the prison in 2179.

William was involved in the rape attempt on Ellen Ripley. He was later killed acting as bait during a desperate attempt to lure the Xenomorph into the lead mold at the foundry alongside the prison.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

William was involved in gang crimes and was sentenced to Fiorina 161 for murder, for which he was sentenced to life imprisonment.[1]

=Xenomorph incidentEdit

"Organise. We gotta organise!"
William to the other inmates, following Andrews' death (from Alien3)

William was a member of the group of prisoners that attempted to rape Ripley in the prison's scrap heap. However, they were caught and beaten by Dillon before they could carry out their act. Following Superintendent Andrews' death, William was foremost in trying to decide who would lead the survivors in their confrontation with the Dragon. He survived the explosion that killed many other inmates, and took part in the bait-and-chase plan to lure the Xenomorph into the mold at the lead works, but was killed during the chase.

Personality and TraitsEdit

William was an atheist and did not share in the religious beliefs held by many of the other inmates.[4]

Behind the ScenesEdit

Alternate deathEdit

Several early drafts of the Alien3 shooting script had a deranged Golic murder William along with several other inmates in the prison's abattoir when they attempt to flee the facility following the Dragon's escape from captivity. Golic later shows William's corpse to Michael Bishop and his team when they arrive at the prison.[5]

TriviaEdit

  • William is never actually seen being killed in either cut of Alien3. He is presumably one of several unidentified bodies discovered during the bait-and-chase sequence. In the novelization of the film, Ripley finds William alongside Eric, their bodies "all mixed up together", soon after piston is started prematurely.[6]
