This Alpha Male Darkseeker is the main antagonist. He was killed by Dr. Neville with an M67 grenade.


When KV broke out, the Alpha Male was infected and turned into a Darkseeker.

He became the Alpha Male of a colony of a few thousand Darkseekers living in the derelict Manhattan.

In 2012, three years after the KV outbreak, the Alpha Male and his colony were living inside a deserted building. When the colony was discovered by Neville, the latter used a snare trap to capture the Alpha Male's mate. The enraged male attempted to rescue her from Neville, but he was kept at bay by the sunlight.

The following night, desperate to rescue his mate from Neville, the Alpha Male took one of the mannequins outside of a local video store, and set up a duplicate of Neville's snare trap for him in front of the Grand Terminal Station, with the mannequin as bait.

The Alpha Male retreated into the Station at dawn from the daylight. During the day, Neville fell for the trap. At dusk, when it became dark enough for the Alpha Male to exit the station, he emerged and unleashed three infected dogs on Neville and Sam. Neville and Sam were able to survive and kill the dogs, but not before one infected Sam.

That night, a horde of Darkseekers led by the Alpha Male attacked the South Street Seaport in search of Neville, where a grief-stricken & raged filled Neville ambushed and killed many of them. Despite killing many Darkseekers, they were eventually able to overwhelm him. The Alpha Male approached and prepared to kill a barely conscious Neville, when survivors Anna and Ethan arrived and used UV lights to force the Darkseekers to retreat.

The alpha male moments before his death

However, as Anna and Ethan arrived at Neville's apartment before dawn, the Alpha Male and the other Darkseekers were able to trace them back to there.

The next night, the Alpha Male led and attack on Neville's apartment, during which the Alpha Male was able to break in and viciously attack and battle Neville. Though the Alpha Male had the upper hand in the fight, Neville was eventually able to force him to retreat back outside.

Later, when the Darkseeker horde was able to pour into Neville's apartment, the Alpha Male and the horde followed Neville, Anna and Ethan into the basement, where the three locked themselves in a plexiglass room from the Darkseekers. The Alpha Male began breaking through the glass, ignoring Neville's reasoning that he could help them. Robert saw the butterfly created in the cracked glass from the Alpha Male which caused him to think of his daughter Marley.

Just as the Alpha Male broke through the glass, Neville rammed at the former with an M67 grenade, killing all the Darkseekers in the process at the cost of his own life.

Alternate EndingEdit

Alpha+Mate Darkseekers

The alpha and his mate reunited

The Alpha Male and his horde chased Neville, Anna and Ethan into the basement. The Alpha Male then smeared a butterfly shape on the plexiglass, identifying his mate by her butterfly tattoo, and showing that he simply wanted her back. Neville removed the KV antidote from the female's bloodstream and returned her to the Alpha Male. In return, the male made sure the other Darkseekers didn't attack Neville, and left peacefully with his mate.
