Perkins was a mercenary and a member of Manning's private military team. In 2497, Manning's team was hired by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation for a mission to New Galveston, the intention being to capture a live Xenomorph for the company to study. The operation suffered massive casualties, although the few survivors did successfully capture several viable specimens.

Perkins, Cho and Piotrowicz get into a battle with the Xenomorphs and are subsequently captured. After regaining conscious, Perkins is informed by Piotrowicz that they both have been impregnated by facehuggers and currently one such parasite is now on Cho. Perkins is killed after she commits suicide via grenade, the blast killing Piotrowicz and Cho.
