Fiorina 161 inmates


Deceased[1] as of July, 2179.[2]

Portrayed by

Leon Herbert


Edward Boggs[3] 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 killed by a lone Xenomorph that was born in the prison in 2179.

Boggs was slaughtered by the Xenomorph while surveying one of the prison's many disused areas, along with his friend Daniel Rains.


Early lifeEdit

Boggs was sent to Fiorina 161 for the crimes of kidnapping and felonious assault.[3]

On Fiorina 161Edit

Following the funeral service for Rebecca Jorden and Corporal Hicks on Fiorina 161, Boggs, Rains and Golic were tasked with a routine surveying mission in a disused section of the vast prison, using candles to help them find their way and calculate the size of the compartment. When some of these candles began to be mysteriously extinguished, Boggs sent Rains to investigate, suspecting a draft from an air vent was responsible. The actual culprit was the Dragon, and upon hearing Rains' screams, Boggs and Golic fled. In their panic, they accidentally circled back on themselves and stumbled onto Rains' corpse, at which point the Dragon attacked, hoisting Boggs off his feet and almost severing his head with a strike from its inner jaw. Boggs' blood drenched a stunned Golic, who managed to flee back to the inhabited part of the complex.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Boggs was known for being hostile and dangerous. He harboured a particular dislike for Golic, whom he deemed crazy and unhygienic.[4] One of his distinguishing marks was the cross and snake tattoo on his forehead.[3]


  • Boggs is one of the few inmates on Fiorina 161 who are not British — he is American.
  • In the film, it is never particularly clear what Boggs, Rains and Golic are doing when they are attacked by the Runner, although it is suggested they are mapping an abandoned part of the facility. In the novelization, however, it is explained that they are foraging for overlooked provisions, left behind when the facility was shut down.[5]
