Albert. I know it's not your fault, but it would really help me do my job if you'd bring me what I asked for. Thanks for your time.
― Berkeley, Data Downloads
Berkeley was an engineer on board the Aurora. Berkeley managed to escape in Lifepod 2 with his friend CTO Yu. He was not with Yu when she reached the Floating Island, it can be assumed he died on the journey and Yu was forced to abandon him.
Prior to the crash of the Aurora, Berkeley and Yu were testing a new drone, and Berkeley asks the drone to retrieve a Propulsion Cannon for him, but the drone retrieves a Repulsion Cannon instead. Berkeley tells the drone to get him a Propulsion Cannon, and Yu tells him that it was like him; it doesn't like being told what to do. Berkeley begins to say that he knows, but Yu says that the drone's name is Albert now. He calmly asks the newly named Albert for a Propulsion Canon, which the drone retrieves for him. He tells the drone that it could go away now, and remarks to Yu that her hobby wasn't making any easier or safer.
After escaping with Yu, he asks her what they need to do, and Yu responds that they need to get a distress call, gear, and make it to the surface. However, Berkeley does not appear with Yu after she gets to the Floating Island, and it can be presumed that he was either killed, or Yu left him.
