Ellen Ripley was a civilian adviser to the United States Colonial Marine Corps and a hugely influential figure in humanity’s encounters with the species Xenomorph XX121. She was the mother of Amanda Ripley-McClaren and the forebear of Alan Decker.

Beginning her career as a warrant officer with Weyland-Yutani’s commercial freight operations, she was assigned to the USCSS Nostromo in 2122 when it encountered a single Xenomorph unintentionally collected from the planetoid LV-426. The event led to the death of the rest of her crew

Kane became the first documented case of a Xeno morph infection of a human.

The Xeno Morph killed each other other crew member. Ripley survived be ejecting the ships light Shuttle, Narcissus. And destroying The Nostromo by detonating its reactor.

She would encounter the Xeno Morph species again on LV 178.

Then again on return to LV 426 attached to a Colonial Marine unit.

Though she survived both these encounters,

She was ultimately infected with a Xeno morph implant during deep cryo sleep travel enroute to Earth.

Her ship crashed on the Fiorina 161 Correctional Facility where Ripley would sacrifice herself to destroy the Xeno morph queen she was incubating.

An unknown number of clones of Ellen Ripley were created on board the United Systems Military vessel Auriga some 200 years after her death. At least one survived.
