Simon de la Cruz was an oil worker on the Galpex Orpheus oil platform. Only he and his friend Diego Garza were immune to the alien black oil virus. One night, Simon killed the Galpex Orpheus's communications officer (who already had been infected with the alien virus) and destroyed the ship's communications equipment so that infected people could not communicate with the ships of alien colonists. The infected Bo Taylor, after discovering the corpse of the communications officer, killed Simon de la Cruz with radioactivity. (TXF: "Vienen").
