|“||That's crazy. The government doesn't lie to people.||„|
|― Darcy to others|
Darcy Benson was played by Chelah Horsdal in the film Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.
She was a resident of Gunnison, Colorado, where, in 2004, she became one of the victims of a Xenomorph outbreak that ultimately led to the destruction of the town. She had blind faith in the government.
Her son and husband were the first to die in that event though she didn't know that. When they disappeared, she searched for them in vain during the following night with the help of the sherriff and several townspeople.
When, in the night after, the Xenomorphs attacked the people in the the town and began to multiply, she saw Carrie Adams dead in her diner after being killed by them and ran away. After that she trustingly joined a group of survivors in order to survive and later, in order to resist them, she joined others in the city centre so that they could be evacuated by the military instead of going out of the city as fast as possible, as her previous group planned to do.
The military, led by Colonel Stevens, however, had other plans. They instead used them as bait for the Xenomorphs and destroyed the town with a tactical nuclear weapon rather than risk the infestation spreading. She died with them.
