Dr. Marie Delacroix was the principal designer of the Faster Than Light (FTL) drive and a crew member of the Von Braun.

Faster Than LightEdit

Working under a grant from TriOptimum Corporation, Delacroix was able to design a device that can bend and warp space. However, there was some concerns regarding the reliability of the device and the side effects. She was then tasked with being the chief engineer onboard the Von Braun to monitor and study the FTL engines.

Despite the public excitement, Dr. Delacroix went on record that the ship should be tested longer and was not ready for field test. Her warnings fell on deaf ears and the Von Braun and the Rickenbacker began her maiden voyage in 2114.

Uneasy VoyageEdit

A few months into its historical journey, the situation has begun to deteriorate. Tension is running high between the civilian elements of the Von Braun and their military counterparts on the Rickenbacker.

In addition, Delacroix’s predictions prove to be accurate, as the Von Braun was plagued with numerous malfunctions. The coolant tubes on the engineering deck were constantly leaking, the scrubbers in the air-recirculators on the hydroponics deck have the tendency to pump out pure carbon dioxide and the integration of the core computer system, XERXES, was buggy and inefficient.

First Contact and The ManyEdit

When the Von Braun received an unknown transmission from the surface of Tau Ceti V, the lives of everybody onboard the Von Braun and Rickenbacker would forever change. Dr. Delacroix, unable to trust anybody else except Dr. Janice Polito, she finds herself having to fend off an unknown forces.

Eventually, the ship was taken over by The Many, she gathers other crew members who are not infected and manages to setup an emergency transmitter to warn the Earth. SHODAN would also intervene, saving her on several occasions as well. Eventually questioning whether to continue supporting SHODAN, Dr. Delacroix contacts SOLDIER G65434-2 about SHODAN's true intention but was killed.


Her body was found in Shuttle Bay 2 and if the player search her body and listens to her email, SHODAN takes 20 cyber modules away from the player. Even in death, she left several emails and manages to setup three terminals that disables SHODAN's shield that would aid SOLDIER G65434-2 in defeating SHODAN.
