Yoshi Troy[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.

Troy was killed acting as bait during a desperate attempt to lure the Xenomorph into the lead mold at the foundry alongside the prison.

Biography

Early life

Prior to becoming a convict, Troy had a brief career as a successful engineer. However, when he discovered his wife committing adultery with his superior, he methodically tortured, murdered and mutilated them both.[4] As a result of his crimes, he was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment on Fiorina 161.[1]

On Fiorina 161

Once at the prison, Troy's pre-incarceration career made him something of a handyman, and his knowledge of engineering meant he was frequently called upon to fix any mechanical or electrical equipment that malfunctioned.[5]

Ripley's arrival

Troy was at the controls of the prison's furnace during the funeral service for Rebecca Jorden and Corporal Hicks.[6] Later, when Murphy's remains jammed the large ventilation fan that had killed him, Troy was again called in to repair the damaged mechanism.[5]

The bait-and-chase

Troy survived the devastating quinitricetyline explosion that killed several of the prisoners, and when the survivors elected to try and kill the Dragon in the lead works, it was once again Troy who repaired the necessary controls for the piston that would drive the Xenomorph into the mold. Troy then stood guard at the piston chamber along with Ripley, Dillon and Eric.

Before the plan could even start, the prisoners inside the foundry soon discovered a serious problem — multiple doors were failing to close. Before the issue could be resolved, the Dragon appeared and one unfortunate prisoner was quickly ambushed and slain by the creature, forcing the others to start the chase early. Within minutes, the situation quickly deteriorated and several prisoners either became lost within the foundry or simply killed by the beast.

Hearing the prisoners' combined screams of confusion, terror and agony echoing through the foundry, Dillon subsequently ordered Troy to take part in the chase through the foundry's maze of corridors. He agreed and subsequently entered the the labyrinth of hallways in search of The Dragon.

Failing to encounter the beast

Troy ran through the hallways where he overheard the terrified screams of prisoners elsewhere in the foundry, but failed to encounter the creature in person. He eventually overheard David warning the others of its presence, but failed to cross paths with either him or the alien. As such, he decided to err on the side of caution and walked slowly through the corridors rather than running blindly.

Death

Shortly afterward, Troy rounded a corner — unfortunately for him, he turned his head away just as he walked around the corner, preventing him from seeing what was ahead of him. When Troy turned around, he found himself face-to-face with the Dragon. Startled, Troy shrieked in terror and was swiftly attacked and killed by the towering beast; his tortured screams were heard by Ripley and Eric in the piston chamber.

Special Edition

"Junior! Behind ya!"
Troy, warning Junior of The Dragon's presence (from Alien3 Special Edition)
In the Special Edition, Troy encountered the Dragon when it was flushed from the ventilation system by the quinitricetyline fire. After warning Junior of the Xenomorph's presence, it prepared to attack Troy, Ripley, Dillon and the others, before Junior lured the creature into the empty nuclear waste tank, where it was then sealed inside.

Personality and Traits

Troy was was one of the more reserved inmates on Fiorina 161, rarely making himself noticed. Regardless, he was actually a highly experienced and qualified technician, skills that no doubt led to his successful albeit brief engineering career.

However, beneath his diffident exterior Troy was a sadistic and cruel man, having no qualms about horrifically torturing and murdering his wife and her lover. Though it could be argued that he was simply acting out of passion, his premeditated murder of the two and his external appearance as a successful engineer indicates he may have been a psychopath. It is highly likely that his skills as a technician came into play during the torture-murder, given the nature of the crime.

Nonetheless, owing to his expertise Troy proved to be a valuable asset on Fiorina 161, both before and during the Xenomorph incident on the prison. He also showed bravery when he unhesitatingly ran into the foundry to act as bait as soon as Dillon ordered him to.
