Story[edit | edit source]

Arrhenius was one of the scientists stationed at Ecopoint: Antarctica, alongside Opara, Adams, MacReady, Mei,and Torres.[2] Disaster struck the station when it was hit by a polar storm,[3] damaging the station's solar array.[4] Cut off from the outside world, the scientists were left stranded in the damaged facility. As their supplies dwindled, they entered cryostasis in a last-ditch effort to survive until a rescue attempt could be made.[3] However, the pods malfunctioned, leaving Mei as the sole survivor of the incident.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
