The Alien, also known as "Big Chap", was a lone Xenomorph Lurker and the primary antagonist of the 1979 film Alien. The Alien was spawned from Kane, a USCSS Nostromo crew member, after he was attacked by a Facehugger while exploring a stranded Derelict-like ship on LV-426.
The Alien bursted from the Nostromo crews' member, Kane, as a Chestburster and escape. The Alien later molted its skin and killed one of the crew members that was searching for Ellen Ripley's runaway cat. One of the crew members later searched for The Alien and was supposedly killed by the creature by surprise. The Alien killed nearly all of the Nostromo crew until Ripley activated the ship's self destruct function and escaped in one of the ship's craft.
The Alien attacked her by surprise and apparently sneaked on board the escape pod. Ripley hid in the spacesuit room and dawned a suit. Ripley then activated a smoke where The Alien was resting and the creature tried to attack her shortly before Ripley activated the airlock which shot The Alien out into space. The Alien remained on the outside of the escape pod until Ripley activated the craft's motors which shot The Alien into the void of space, to its death.
