Karine Oram was a crewmember aboard the colonization spacecraft USCSS Covenant. She was the wife of Chris Oram. She was serving on the Covenant during its disastrous voyage to Origae-6, during which it suffered several catastrophes that resulted in the loss of most of the ship's crew and its hijacking by David.
Karine was part of the expedition team that set down on the Planet 4. She was injured by a Neomorph Bloodburster that attacked her immediately after emerging from Ledward, dying either from her injuries or when the dropship was destroyed shortly afterward.
Karine was first shown in Alien: Covenant - The Last Supper talking to her husband, Oram, about how drunk Tennessee and Faris were. In Alien: Covenant, Karine is shown throwing up after quickly leaving her hypersleep pod during the neutrino blast.
She later comforts Oram after the blast and tells him that he needs to be the group's leader since captain Branson had died during the neutrino blast.
After landing on Paradise, Karine traveled with the main group before departing with Ledward to collect soil and water samples from the planet. It is during this time that Ledward was infected by the black goo spores and started becoming extremely sick. After finishing their sample collecting, Karine noticed Ledward's infection and tried to bring him back to the lander. After receiving help from Faris at the lander, Karine brought Ledward to the medical room, where she then tried to help Ledward.
Her attempts prove futile as the Bloodburster then started quickly emerging from Ledward's back. Faris panicked and sealed Karine inside the medical room with Ledward and the Bloodburster, causing Karine to start panicking as well and try to escape. The Bloodburster then erupted from Ledward's back, killing him. The Neomorph then turned to face Karine, who grabbed a knife and kicked the Bloodburster against nearby wall. However, the Bloodburster lunged at Karine and clawed at her face while biting into her neck, seriously injuring her.
Karine perished shortly afterward, dying either from her injuries or when Faris inadvertently destroyed the dropship while trying to kill the Neomorph.
