Falchek is a Gen Inc researcher that was stationed at the Strata Medical Laboratory in Antarctica.


During the initial outbreak of the Thing within the facility, he barricaded himself in one of the laboratory's chambers, luckily Blake who just gained his consciousness was able to rescue Falchek and gained his trust, however his alliance with Blake has resulted him being in Whitley's extermination list, he along with Blake and several others fought their way through both the dreaded Thing Beasts and Whitley's elite Black Ops units, however he eventually became an Imitator and Blake was forced to kill him.


  • According to a developer interview with Lead Programmer Diarmid Campbell, Falchek's face was modeled after the game's Lead Designer Andrew Curtis. He also explains that many of the NPCs and squad members are based on photos taken from the developers.
