- "I HATE BUGS!"
- ―Morse (from Alien3)
Robert Morse 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.
Foul-mouthed and argumentative, Morse was nonetheless the only person to survive the Xenomorph incident, although he was shot and wounded by commandos under the command of Michael Weyland, and was subsequently taken into custody by Weyland-Yutani. His fate after this is unknown.
Morse was sent to Fiorina 161 for committing "armed robbery, 5 counts".
Guarding GolicEditWhen the Alien started killing, Morse was quick to blame Ripley for the ensuing deaths, before eventually becoming pre-occupied with his own security. After the beast was trapped in the waste dump, Golic, now pronounced a "mental case" and strapped to a bed, convinced him to remove the strait-jacket. Golic then swiftly knocked out his "friend" with a fire extinguisher and went in search of the creature. Golic murdered another prisoner before releasing the alien, which then killed him in gratitude.
Trap in the Lead WorksEdit
Morse narrowly escaped death from the alien during the bait and chase sequence. While Dillon was fighting the alien in the mould, Ripley ordered Morse to pour the lead, drowning the beast in molten metal. The alien escaped confinement after a brief boiling, saw Ripley and began climbing up the pipework. Noticing that she was near the sprinklers, Morse shouted at her to "douse the fucker!"
The sprinklers were activated, and the alien's metallic exoskeleton cooled rapidly and exploded via thermal shock. Shortly after the alien's destruction, Weyland-Yutani arrived for Ripley, but she refuses, knowing what their real intentions are. As she climbs onto the mobile platform with Morse, soldier shoots Morse in the leg. Despite the agonizing pain, he stops the platform over the furnace and watches in astonishment as Ripley falls gracefully into the furnace, Much to the company's dismay. As everyone is evacuated, the soldiers bandage his leg and lead him out of the prison, with Morse laughing and cursing at the Weyland-Yutani staff.
After being re-assigned from Fury 161, he writes an account of the events on the prison planets, saying that Ellen Ripley sacrificed herself to save them from the "beast". However, the story was banned.
Personality and TraitsEditMorse was a loud argumentative individual. He had no reservations on stating how he felt about anything. Morse also enjoyed picking fights at any opportunity, one of his favorites to fight with was Francis Aaron, who Morse constantly referred to as "85". Morse had no respect, and would go against authority; even if it was well armed people. One example of this was when Morse was being lead away from the Fiorina 161 facility by Weyland-Yutani guards armed with M41A Pulse Rifles, laughing at them and insulting them. Besides being confrotational and aggressive, Morse also had a soft spot for his friend Walter Golic. Morse's distinguishing mark was his gold teeth.
- Actor Daniel Webb is rumored to reprise his role as Morse in Ridley Scott's 2015 Prometheus sequel.
