Main organizations and members[edit]


STARS (Special Tactics And Rescue Service, always written as S.T.A.R.S. by Capcom) is a special force in the Raccoon Police Department, introduced in the original Resident Evil and disbanded before the events of the sequel. Its key members included Albert Wesker, Barry Burton, Brad Vickers, Chris Redfield, Enrico Marini, Forest Speyer, Jill Valentine, Joseph Frost, Kenneth J. Sullivan, Rebecca Chambers and Richard Aiken.[1]

Besides Chris, Jill, and Wesker, four more STARS members are major characters in the game series:

Barry Burton[edit]

Voiced by: Barry Gjerde (RE),[2] Ed Smaron (REmake), Jamieson Price (RE5), Michael McConnohie (Revelations 2), Yusaku Yara (Revelations 2, REmake HD Remaster (Japanese))
Played by: Gregory (RE live-action cutscenes), Kevin Durand (Retribution)

Barry Burton (バリー・バートン Barī Bāton?) is a middle-aged (38-year-old in the original Resident Evil[3]) SWAT-veteran[1] and STARS Alpha Team's weapons specialist. In the original Resident Evil, Barry plays a supporting role in Jill's story while only appearing briefly in the opening scene of Chris' scenario. During the course of the game, it is revealed that he was blackmailed into betraying his teammates by Albert Wesker who threatened to harm his family if he refused. He returns in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, helping Jill and Carlos escape from Raccoon City before its destruction. Barry also appears in the non-canonical game Resident Evil Gaiden as one of its two player characters, and as a DLC character in the Resident Evil 5 Mercenaries Reunion mode.[3]

After non-canon appearances in games for several years, Barry was a playable character in Resident Evil: Revelations 2 in which he arrived on an island to save his daughter, Moira, and the returning Claire Redfield, who got captured by men sent by Alex Wesker.[4] Barry also meets a little girl named Natalia Korda, who can sense the presence of hidden items and monsters. Natalia can be controlled by the player as well as Barry, but can only use bricks to throw at monsters. During the events of Resident Evil: Revelations 2, it is revealed Barry was estranged from Moira. Eventually, Barry winds up having to battle Alex Wesker, believing she had killed Moira, and she targets Natalia for nefarious reasons. In the end, Barry survives the ordeal, killing Alex with Claire's help, and reconciles with Moira, who showed up belatedly to save her father and friends. Barry then adopts Natalia, with everybody unaware that Alex is now somehow part of her, following her death.

PlayStation Universe described Barry as "something of a legend among RE aficionados, thanks in no small part to his utterly laughable dialogue segments in the original Resident Evil," adding that "he also remains one of the most genuinely likeable characters in the franchise, especially after the chaps at Capcom polished up his hammy ways for the GameCube remake."[3] In 2010, Joystick Division ranked him as the fifth top supporting character in video game history.[5]

Brad Vickers[edit]

Voiced by: Evan Sabba (RE3), Adam Paul (REmake), Johnny Yong Bosch (The Umbrella Chronicles)

Brad Vickers (ブラッド・ヴィッカーズ Buraddo Vikkāzu?) is STARS' helicopter pilot and Alpha team's computer and information expert, nicknamed "Chickenheart".[1] He leaves his teammates stranded in the forest during the opening of the first Resident Evil after panicking, but returns at the end of the game to save the survivors (Jill, Chris, Barry, and Rebecca). In Resident Evil 3, despite trying to avoid any further involvement in the events surrounding Umbrella, Brad is targeted by the Nemesis and eventually killed. He can be seen as a zombie in front of the police department in Resident Evil 2 if the player meets certain goals.[6]

Rebecca Chambers[edit]

Richard Aiken[edit]

Voiced by: Joe Whyte (REmake), Yuri Lowenthal (The Umbrella Chronicles)

Richard Aiken (リチャード・エイケン Richādo Eiken?) is the STARS' radio communications specialist[1] and one of the Bravo Team members involved in the Spencer Mansion Incident. In the original Resident Evil game, he is found on the east wing of the Mansion's second floor, severely wounded and poisoned by a giant snake. After a brief detour to collect antivenom, Richard dies, either after imparting information and a radio (if the player returns quickly), or prior to their return. In the remake version, whilst playing as Jill, Richard will accompany the player into the fight with Yawn, sacrificing himself to push her away from a lethal attack, and being ingested by the snake. Whilst playing as Chris, Richard will be killed during the encounter with the shark-based Neptune monster. In the novel The Umbrella Conspiracy, Richard is found by Chris and Rebecca already dead from the poison. In Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, Richard is a companion of Rebecca. He is one of the playable characters in the multiplayer mode of Resident Evil: Deadly Silence.

Umbrella Corporation[edit]

Umbrella Corporation symbol

The Umbrella Corporation is a corrupt international pharmaceutical company in the Resident Evil universe. Founded in the late 1960s by prominent British royal descendants Ozwell E. Spencer and Edward Ashford, it is portrayed in the games as a major international player in pharmaceutical goods and medical supplies, along with more clandestine operations utilizing genetic engineering, their legitimate status being only a front for their secret research of "bio-organic weapons" (BOWs), developed through the use of a unique virus discovered by the company founders shortly after World War II.[7] The company is also presented as having a more public face, producing cosmetics, consumer products and foods. One of Umbrella's subsidiaries is UBCS (Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service), a private military company with a highly trained security force composed mostly of war criminals and exiled soldiers[8] and capable of rescue and reconnaissance paramilitary operations; the corporation also uses its top-secret special forces group to secure and protect its assets and high profile employees. Umbrella established multiple secret research facilities to develop various bio-weapons. Its most prominent research facility is located in the Arklay Mountains, just outside of Raccoon City, which was able to develop the "T-virus", a powerful mutagen that could dramatically alter living and recently dead organisms. The virus leaks and contaminates most of the Arklay Facility and its surrounding area, setting the stage for the first Resident Evil game. Following the destruction of Raccoon City, all of Umbrella's assets are frozen by the U.S. Government and its trading rights are revoked, effectly terminating its operations. However, it did not stop the rise of several bioterrorist organizations around the world, some of them making use of its research, leading to the foundation of B.S.A.A.

Alexia Ashford[edit]

Voiced by: Leila Johnson (Code Veronica), Karen Strassman (The Darkside Chronicles)

Alexia Ashford (アレクシア・アシュフォード Arekushia Ashufōdo?) is the primary antagonist of Resident Evil Code: Veronica. Along with her twin brother, Alfred, she is the product of an experiment by her father, the Umbrella's chief senior researcher, Alexander (the son of the corporation's deceased co-founder Edward Ashford; he was later himself turned by Alexia into an undead monster called Nosferatu). The genetic material of ancestor Veronica Ashford was inserted into an embryo and implanted in a surrogate mother in an attempt to reproduce Veronica's legendary intelligence and beauty. Having successfully inherited these traits, Alexia sought to become an unstoppable world dictator by injecting herself with the T-Veronica Virus and freezing herself for several years in order to retain her own personality and allow her body to control the virus, rather than vice versa. She awakes during the events of Code Veronica, after her brother Alfred dies. In revenge for this, she sends one of her tentacle monsters to capture Claire and Steve, experimenting on the latter and turning him into a large monster. She is confronted by Albert Wesker towards the end of the game and mutates into her first form. The two battle and she drives him off, but is then defeated by Chris. She revives and appears at the very end of the game as the last boss, mutating into another 2 forms before Chris kills her for good with the Linear Launcher.

In 2009, IGN ranked her as the series' most fearsome villain.[9]

Carlos Oliveira[edit]

Voiced by: Vince Corazza (RE3), Scott McNeil (Under the Skin), Kim Strauss (The Umbrella Chronicles), Gideon Emery (Operation Raccoon City), Shoto Kashii (Under the Skin (Japaneses)), Hiroki Yasumoto (Operation Raccoon City (Japanese))
Played by: Oded Fehr (Apocalypse, Extinction, Retribution)

Carlos Oliveira (カルロス・オリヴェイラ Karurosu Orivueira?), Brazilian and the second main character of Resident Evil 3,[8] is a mercenary and a former member of a South American communist guerrilla group. After the government forces wiped out his organization, Carlos was scouted out by the Umbrella Corporation to join Umbrella's UBCS. He joined the force and was assigned to Delta Platoon, Company A (serving along with Nicholai Ginovaef and Mikhail Victor) in charge of heavy firearms and weapons maintenance.[8] Despite his violent background, he is warm-hearted and known for joking around.[10] In Resident Evil 3, Carlos assists Jill Valentine throughout the game as the two of them attempt to escape Raccoon City. At one point Jill becomes infected by the T-virus after a battle with the Nemesis. At this point Carlos becomes playable so that the player can prepare a vaccine for Jill. Ultimately he is successful in escaping the city along with Jill. He reprises his role in The Umbrella Chronicles, where the events of Resident Evil 3 are revisited in the "Raccoon's Destruction" scenario, in which Carlos is a playable character alongside Jill Valentine.

In the live action films his name is spelled Olivera, indicating a character background change from Brazil (Portuguese, "Oliveira") to some other Latin American country (Spanish, "Olivera").

HUNK (ハンク HANKU?) is a member of the Umbrella Security Service Unit in Resident Evil 2,[11] also known as "Mr. Death", for being the sole survivor of several units he had previously taken part.[12] HUNK appears in Resident Evil 2 and is playable in a secret minigame entitled "4th Survivor". This short scenario entails HUNK's journey to escape Raccoon City, beginning with his awakening in the sewers and eventually leading to his extraction from the city. He is the only member of his unit to survive the attack of the mutated William Birkin that takes place shortly after he secured samples of the G-virus for Umbrella.[11] He reappears in The Umbrella Chronicles, in a remake of the "4th Survivor" scenario where the player must reach the helipad for extraction from Raccoon City, and during the "Memories of a Lost City" scenario in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.[13] HUNK is playable in the "Mercenaries" minigame in Resident Evil 4, but has no relation to the story.[13] HUNK appears as a side character in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, where he works with other Umbrella Security Service operatives to recover a sample of the G-virus prior to the events of Resident Evil 2. He is also a playable character in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and Resident Evil Revelations.

James Marcus[edit]

James Marcus (ジェームス・マーカス Jēmusu Mākasu?) is the one of the primary antagonists in Resident Evil Series. Years before the events of the first Resident Evil, he was one of the top researchers of the Umbrella Corporation and a head of its personnel training facility, personally appointed by Ozwell E. Spencer to work with the Mother virus. In this capacity, Marcus played an integral role in developing the T-virus and the Tyrant and Nemesis programs, also conducting extensive research on leeches that led to the development of the G-virus, up until his sudden disappearance in 1988.[14] Spencer betrayed him by sending Marcus' direct subordinates, Albert Wesker and William Birkin, to murder him and steal his research.[15] Approximately a decade later, Marcus rises from the dead with the aid of his leeches.[16] He exacts his vengeance upon Spencer by contaminating the Spencer Mansion, one of the Umbrella Corporation's secret research facilities, with the T-virus, which trigger the events of the first Resident Evil game.[17] Marcus plays a larger role in the game's prequel, Resident Evil Zero, which details the accounts of his resurrection, vendetta, and ultimate downfall at the hands of Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen. He also appears in The Umbrella Chronicles.[18]

Mikhail Victor[edit]

Voiced by: Benedict Campbell (RE3)

Mikhail Victor (ミハイル・ヴィクトール Mihairu Vikutōru?) is the leader of the UBCS Delta platoon that both Nicholai and Carlos are part of. According to his backstory, Mikhail is from Saint Petersburg, Russia, and had originally served in the army before joining a rebel group. Mikhail was eventually arrested by Russian government forces and convicted of acts of terrorism. He was then coerced into leading the UBCS in exchange for his men's freedom.[19] In the game, he appears already wounded, choosing to sacrifice his own life to save Jill and Carlos as he dies when he is blown apart by his own grenade in a failed attempt to destroy the Nemesis. In an early draft of the story, Mikhail was originally scripted to be Nicholai's older brother (hence, his original name was Mikhail Ginovaef).[19] He is the only one of the main UBCS operatives not to appear in the film Resident Evil: Apocalypse, being replaced by an original character named Yuri Loginova.

Nikolai Zinoviev[edit]

Voiced by: Roger Honeywell (RE3), Rick D. Wasserman (Operation Raccoon City), Kenta Miyake (Operation Raccoon City (Japanese))
Played by: Zack Ward (Apocalypse)

Nikolai Zinoviev (ニコライ・ジノビエフ Nikorai Jinobiefu?) is a member of the UBCS Delta platoon, Company B. According to his backstory, Nikolai is from Moscow and served in the Russian Spetsnaz before joining the UBCS. He also has an unspoken rivalry with HUNK from Resident Evil 2. Nikolai meets Jill as one of the few surviving operatives from the Delta platoon, along with Carlos and Mikhail. He disappears after an event in the first half of the game and is presumed dead until another encounter with him. Nicholai is in fact one of the Supervisors, UBCS operatives assigned to watch and gather combat data as their comrades fight against Umbrella's bio-weapons. Nikolai's fate varies depending on which route the player takes. In one scene, he is slaughtered by the Nemesis and his corpse is left hanging in an air duct. Another possible outcome shows Nikolai stealing Jill's intended escape helicopter. At this point, the player has the option of attempting to negotiate with him, in which he escapes from the city successfully, or choose to fight back against Nicholai, destroying the helicopter along with him. The English localization of Resident Evil Survivor features a document supposedly authored by Nikolai after the events of Nemesis. The file is different in the original Japanese version and the Chinese localization of the PC port. The third entry of the document (the portion dated after the events of Nemesis) was actually authored by the "Umbrella B.O.W. Development Staff", rather than Nikolai.[20] Nikolai also appears in Resident Evil Outbreak in the final scenario "Decisions, Decisions" which depicts the character conducting another mission occurring during the same time period as the second half of Resident Evil 3. He is mentioned in The Umbrella Chronicles, where he is referred to by the codename "Silver Fox". Nikolai's role in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City was stopping Wolfpack from completing their mission objective. The character was adapted for the film Resident Evil: Apocalypse, although the film features a more heroic depiction of Nicholai, which differs from the game's original antagonistic portrayal. His name is incorrectly translated as "Nicholai Ginovaef" in the English localization of RE3, while the film's official novelization renamed him as Nicholai Sokolov.

Ozwell E. Spencer[edit]

Voiced by: Adam D. Clark (RE5)
Motion capture: Adam D. Clark (RE5)

Ozwell E. Spencer (オズウェル・E・スペンサー Ozuweru E Supensā?) is one of Resident Evil's most important and mysterious characters. In the series, he is the owner and co-founder of the Umbrella Corporation, a pharmaceutical drug company that secretly manufactures bio-organic weapons.[21] His colleagues, James Marcus and Edward Ashford, join his company, but show more interest in studying the newly discovered Progenitor virus.[21] Eventually, Edward Ashford dies, and Spencer seizes control of the company and its research by sending his subordinates, Albert Wesker and William Birkin, to assassinate Marcus.[15][22] Spencer conducts some of his company’s research in the Arklay Research Facility, in the Arklay Mountains. He hires George Trevor, a famed architect to construct a mansion to conceal the facility.[23] Spencer's plans progress smoothly, until Marcus returns from the dead,[16] and begins to seek revenge with the help of his test subjects. Marcus destroys one of Spencer’s luxury trains, and causes a viral outbreak in the Arklay Research Facility.[17] The outbreak spreads throughout the region, sparking the events of Resident Evil Zero and the original Resident Evil. The virus subsequently spreads to Raccoon City during the events of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, prompting the U.S. government to contain the outbreak by ordering the destruction of the city.[24] After the city's destruction, Spencer attempts to disguise the incident as a government conspiracy by hiring top lawyers and false witnesses. His actions prolong the legal proceedings, and allow the Umbrella Corporation to stay afloat for five more years. Ultimately, Wesker betrays Spencer by handing over secret documents to the U.S. government,[25] and seals Spencer's doom by personally testifying against him in court. Umbrella's business license is summarily suspended, and the U.S. government works swiftly to dismantle the remains of the organization.[26] After Umbrella's public fall from grace, Spencer retreats to his mansion in Europe. He is eventually located by Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine prior to the events of Resident Evil 5, but is swiftly killed by Albert Wesker before the two can reach him. His first name is romanized as Oswell in the Japanese version.

Sergei Vladimir[edit]

Voiced by: Patrick Seitz (The Umbrella Chronicles)

Sergei Vladimir (セルゲイ・ウラジミール Serugei Urajimīru?) is a high-ranking Russian employee of Umbrella and the main antagonist of Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Following the fall of the Soviet Union, he approached the Umbrella Corporation and quickly became one of the company's top officers. He became personally acquainted with Umbrella founder Ozwell E. Spencer, who began to rely on Sergei as a loyal and effective enforcer. Sergei subsequently formed and led Umbrella's UBCS,[27] as well as Umbrella's internal espionage organization, Monitor. Agents that answered directly to Sergei include the likes of Nicholai Ginovaef. Sergei undertakes the Umbrella Corporation's most important tasks through the Resident Evil series, including stealing the Red Queen from the Arklay Research Facility, extracting Ozwell Spencer from Raccoon City before its destruction, and securing important research information.[28] Sergei is killed by Albert Wesker while attempting to prevent him from stealing a database containing the Umbrella Corporations most important documents and research data.[29]

William Birkin[edit]

Voiced by: Diego Matamoros (RE2), T.J. Rotolo (The Darkside Chronicles, Operation Raccoon City)
Played by: Jason Isaacs (RE)

William Birkin (ウィリアム・バーキン Wiriamu Bākin?) is one of the main antagonists of the Resident Evil series. After completing his G-virus project, he is mortally wounded by agents of the Umbrella Special Forces and his work is stolen. Left for dead, he injects himself with the G-virus, thus turning himself into a monster. He then kills his attackers, causing a T-virus vial to be leaked into the city's drainage system, resulting in the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City. During the course of the game, he encounters the main characters, Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, as he undergoes gradual mutation and begins losing any semblance of his original human form. He is eventually defeated by Claire and Leon, with the help of his daughter Sherry. Birkin is mentioned in Wesker's Report as the scientist who helped Wesker fake his death and is retroactively mentioned in the GameCube remake of the first Resident Evil. He also makes an appearance in Resident Evil Zero, where he assists Wesker from behind the scenes, and also appears in a cutscene in The Umbrella Chronicles along with Albert Wesker.[30] In 2012, IGN ranked the transformed Birkin as the second best boss in the series, calling him "a terrible abomination - one that is not easily forgotten."[31]

In the first Resident Evil film, Birkin makes an uncredited cameo appearance as the head of the Nemesis project, who was also the film's narrator. According to an audio commentary by Paul W. S. Anderson, Isaacs was planned to reprise this role in the sequel Resident Evil: Apocalypse, but left the project for undisclosed reasons; an original character named Dr. Sam Isaacs (played by Iain Glen) was created to fulfill Birkin's role in the sequel.


The BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance), is a private military company formed between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, was founded by Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Clive R. O'Brian, and eight others after the fall of Umbrella, with the aim of combating the increasing numbers of B.O.W.s being sold on the black market. Originally a non-government organization, the BSAA was placed under United Nations Security Council control when the U.S. government funded Federal Bioterrorism Commission (FBC) was revealed to be corrupt.

Jessica Sherawat[edit]

Voiced by: Ali Hillis (Revelations), Nana Mizuki (Revelations (Japanese))

Jessica Sherawat is a member of the FBC, where she worked with Parker Luciani. She later became a member of the BSAA and worked with Chris Redfield in their investigation of Veltro in 2005. Most importantly, Jessica is secretly an agent working for the corrupt Morgan Lansdale and, above all, for Tricell Incorporated. As such, she betrays Chris and the BSAA. She survives the ordeal, though, goes into hiding and is given a sample of the T-Abyss virus by Raymond Vester.

Parker Luciani[edit]

Voiced by: Kirk Thornton (Revelations), Mitsuru Miyamoto (Revelations (Japanese))

Parker is originally a member of the FBC tasked with helping out during the 2004 Veltro terrorist attack of Terragrigia. However he and his partner Jessica Sherawat barely managed to make it out alive and fled into the FBC building. During their trip to the Command Room, they met and saved the new cadet Raymond Vester. He and Parker then bonded. At the command room, they met Morgan Lansdale collaborating with Jack Norman, and in the midst of betraying him. After that, the group escaped the city. In 2005, Parker and Jill followed Chris Redfield and Jessica's last known coordinates to a stranded cruise ship named Queen Zenobia in the Mediterranean Sea. They realize that the entire crew of the Queen Zenobia had been turned into monstrous bio organic weapons named Ooze and are forced to fight for their lives. On the ship's bridge, they are surprised to meet none other than Vester who claims to be here by orders of the FBC. After Jessica is revealed to be a traitor, she sets the Queen Zenobia to self-destruct. Parker was later seen dangling above end then falling into a series of explosions after the floor he was standing on collapses. It is ultimately revealed that Raymond Vester saved Parker from the explosion. Parker was then found adrift off the shore of the Republic of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea. He resumed his position as a Special Operations Agent for the BSAA after a month of recovery.

Piers Nivans[edit]

Voiced by: Chris Emerson (RE6), Shuhei Sakaguchi (RE6 (Japanese))
Face Model: Adam Crosman (RE6)

Piers Nivans is a member of the North American Branch of the BSAA in Resident Evil 6. He is a talented marksman, who servers under Chris Redfield during the Edonian Civil War in 2012. On one of their missions, Carla Radames infects Nivans' comrades with the C-virus and turns them into mutants. Redfield is knocked unconscious in the ensuing battle but is rescued by Nivans. Redfield becomes disillusioned and disappears after recovering. Nivans tracks down Redfield and successfully convinces him to rejoin the BSAA to avenge his dead comrades. They are deployed to Lanshiang, China and tasked to stop a bio-terrorism attack. The duo are eventually led to an underwater laboratory that is being used to create powerful bio-organic weapons. Nivans is severely injured during their final battle and injects himself with the C-virus to continue fighting. He manages to save Redfield but chooses to stay in the laboratory to ensure its destruction.[32] Piers is mentioned by name during the epilogue in Resident Evil: Revelations 2, as he is in China with Chris.

Alex Wesker[edit]

Voiced by: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Revelations 2), Rica Fukami (Revelations 2 (Japanese))

Besides Albert Wesker, Alex is the only other known "Wesker" project to have survived and adapted successfully on her own. Both were viewed as being a form of superior breed of human for their master, Ozwell E. Spencer, but Spencer was betrayed by them both once they grew to understand the greatness of power. Alex was first mentioned in a file obtainable in Resident Evil 5, and is eventually revealed to be the main antagonist of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. It is she who captures the Terra Save workers including Claire Redfield with Moira Burton, and injects them with a virus and has her subjects wear wrist devices to monitor their fear levels as they explore a frightening facility, causing the subjects to mutate if their fear becomes too great. She is frequently spying on her subjects via CCTV, uses quotes by Franz Kafka and captures Natalia Korda, the little girl Barry Burton meets upon reaching the island Moira was stuck on. During some scenes, Alex is clearly seen in her mutated form as well, and controls the "Afflicted". Alex had captured Natalia to experiment on her, intending to transfer her own consciousness into Natalia's body. Regardless of the ending achieved by the player in Revelations 2, good or bad, Alex manages, possibly to different degrees, to transfer her mind into Natalia's body and take over it. In the bonus episode "Little Miss", which takes place before Barry's arrival to the island, players assume control of Natalia and her mysterious evil twin as they look for the toy bear Lottie. This reveals Alex had already started her experience and her mind was present in Natalia's subconscious as the "evil twin".

Ark Thompson[edit]

Voiced by: Patrick Harlan (Resident Evil: Survivor)

Ark Thompson is an acquaintance of Leon S. Kennedy who was sent by him to Sheena Island to investigate the Umbrella's facilities there, where the company has its private township, soon after the Raccoon City incident in 1998. He ends up posing as Vincent Goldman, an Umbrella manager, but loses his memory after a helicopter crash. During the game, he is led to believe that he is Vincent Goldman and is mistakenly blamed for the T-virus outbreak on the island. As he investigates, he progressively gets his memories back and confronts the real Vincent Goldman. He eventually escapes the facility before its destruction aboard a helicopter along with Lott and Lily Klein, two children of Umbrella scientists whose parents died in the incident.

Ashley Graham[edit]

Voiced by: Carolyn Lawrence (RE4)
Motion capture: Yukiko Saitani (RE4)

Ashley Graham (アシュリー・グラハム Ashurī Gurahamu?) is the new U.S. President's daughter in Resident Evil 4.[33] A college student living in Massachusetts, Ashley is abducted by a mysterious cult while attempting to return home.[34] She is taken to a remote part of Spain and held captive in a village inhabited by humans infected by mind-controlling parasites. The cult's leader, Osmund Saddler, plans to infect her with Las Plagas, to carry out the cult's secret agenda.[35] She is rescued by Kennedy, and works alongside him to thwart the cult's plans and escape. In addition to being able to receive commands and perform simple tasks, Ashley briefly becomes a playable character for a portion of the game.

GameDaily listed Ashley Graham as part of its "Babe of the Week: Hottest Blondes" feature, adding that they would give her the "pain in the neck" award.[36] In 2008, Cracked listed her as one of the 15 most annoying video game characters, claiming that in their opinion, "developers need to realize that no one likes to defend the weak and defenseless in video games",[37] but PC Games Hardware included her among the 112 most important female characters in games.[38] That same year, GamesRadar used her as an example of the "pure-hearted love interest", stating that this kind of character lacks personality,[39] and also listed her as one of the top seven most irritating video game characters, stating that while she is not completely useless, she is not very resourceful.[40]

Billy Coen[edit]

Voiced by: David Webster (RE0), Steve Van Wormer (The Umbrella Chronicles)

Billy Coen (ビリー・コーエン Birī Kōen?) is first mentioned in a police report filed by Rebecca Chambers that can be found in the Nintendo 64 version of Resident Evil 2, foreshadowing the events of the Resident Evil Zero prequel. A former Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps, Billy is sentenced to death by a military court for massacring 23 people[41] in murky circumstances during a mission in Africa. Billy's flashbacks imply he is innocent and the victim of a cover-up.[42][43] He escapes en route to his execution and seeks refuge in the Ecliptic Express, a stranded train, where he meets Rebecca Chambers. The two form an alliance in order to survive, using their talents to discover the Umbrella Corporation’s secrets.[44] Both characters are monitored by James Marcus, who sends various creatures to subdue them. After revealing the details of his demise, Marcus mutates into the Queen Leech.[44] In the final battle sequence, Billy and Rebecca destroy the Queen Leech by exploiting its vulnerability to sunlight. Rebecca allows Billy to escape, believing his claims that he is innocent and telling the authorities that he subsequently perished in the Arklay Mountains after their encounter. It is unknown whether he made it out of the forest near Racoon City alive or not. Billy also appears in The Umbrella Chronicles.[44][45]

Bruce McGivern[edit]

Voiced by: Raj Ramayya (Dead Aim), Hiroaki Hirata (Namco × Capcom)

When a large amount of a recently developed hybrid viral agent known as the "t+G Virus" is stolen from the Umbrella Pharmaceuticals Development Center in Paris by a former Umbrella researcher, Bruce McGivern is sent in by the U.S. government to retrieve the virus and neutralize the threat in the Atlantic Ocean on board an Umbrella-owned luxury ocean liner, the "Spencer Rain", whose entire personnel on board have been infected with the t-Virus stolen by the same former researcher, Morpheus D. Duvall, in September 2002. A member of the U.S. Stratcom, McGivern is cocky and brash, and has a tendency to adopt a "shoot first, ask questions later" policy, with little regard for the consequences following his actions. This has often left him in many hostile situations, although in the end, he always somehow comes out on top. Confronted at the very beginning of the game by Duvall, he is saved by Chinese secret agent Fong Ling who throws a grenade at Morpheus (regardless of Bruce's life), seriously wounding the terrorist. He later works with her in order to stop Duvall's plan of unleashing the virus, bringing the fight to an underwater Umbrella secret laboratory which they ultimately destroy as Bruce kills a greatly mutated Duvall. At first at odds with Fong Ling, she and Bruce become closer as the story progresses, particularly after he saves her from an attempt on her life by her own government through the use of satellites armed with lasers. At the end of the game, it is implied that Bruce will follow her to China where they will likely start a relationship.

Carla Radames[edit]

See also: Ada Wong

Carla Radames is the primary antagonist of Resident Evil 6. She is the founder and leader of Neo-Umbrella, a terrorist organization that strives on destroying the current world order. Radames, a former government researcher, is the creator of the C-virus, a powerful mutagen capable of turning humans into capable and competent bio-organic weapons. Derek Simmons performs experiments on Carla which ultimately turn her into a clone of Ada Wong. While Carla possesses Ada's physical appearance and mannerisms, she still retains her original psyche. She also harbors a deep resentment towards Simmons, whom she believes stole her research and lifework. Radames personally oversees the bio-terror attacks in Europe, the United States, and China. She exacts revenge on Simmons by having her henchmen infect him with a potent dosage of the C-virus, which turns him into ravenous monster. She is fatally shot by a helicopter sent by the Family, but thanks to injecting herself with an enhanced C-Virus, Radames mutated into a formless mass. She is ultimately confronted and killed by Ada Wong.[46]

Deborah Harper[edit]

Voiced by: Kate Higgins (RE6)
Motion capture: Lauren Kim (RE6)

Deborah Harper is the younger sister of Helena Harper. In the past, Helena was known to be very protective towards Deborah, having wounded Deborah's abusive ex-boyfriend. In Resident Evil 6, the two sisters were held as hostages by Derek C. Simmons in the secret lab underneath the Tall Oaks Cathedral. Helena tried her best to keep a terrified Deborah to be calm and assure her. Helena offered herself to Simmons in exchange for her sister, but her pleas did nothing and Deborah was dragged away. Deborah was later taken to the catacombs of the cathedral, and was injected with C-Virus; however, as she showed no signs of mutation, Deborah was left to die. After Helena and Leon rescue Deborah, they soon arrive at the lower levels of the catacombs, where Deborah becomes very ill before bursting into flames; a goo then hardens into a cocoon around her. As the lower levels then begin to crumble, Deborah emerges with spider-like appendages on her back. Despite Helena's pleas not to harm her sister, Ada reminds her that Deborah has to be killed or else they will die. After the battle, Helena grabs Deborah as she slips and falls over a pit. She then begs for forgiveness, saying she will avenge her sister after she and Leon kill Simmons, and releases Deborah as she falls to her death into the darkness below. At the end of Leon and Helena's campaign, Helena visits Deborah's grave at a cemetery.

Voiced by: Claire O'Connor (Dead Aim), Kae Araki (Namco × Capcom)

A Chinese intelligence agent employed by the Ministry of State Security, Fong is infamous for her cold and stoic demeanor. Upon learning of her brother's involvement in anti-government activism, Fong arrested him. Following his arrest, Fong's brother was swiftly executed, although she has never questioned the actions of her boss and remains absolutely loyal, stopping at nothing to accomplish her objectives. She is sent by the Chinese government to the Umbrella-owned luxury liner the "Spencer Rain" to stop former Umbrella scientist Morpheus Duvall's plans and retrieve the sample of the virus he stole from an Umbrella's lab in Paris. Initially apathetic towards the presence of a rival operative, Bruce McGivern, going so far as to throw a grenade at Duvall who was holding him at gunpoint, she allies with him in order to stop Duvall. At some point, the Chinese government betrays her and attempts to kill her through the use of satellites armed with lasers. But Bruce saves her. Though greatly shaken by this event, she decides to complete her mission and to keep working for her employers afterward. And from that moment on, she becomes closer to Bruce. After killing Duvall and destroying an Umbrella secret laboratory underwater, it is implied that Bruce will follow her to China where they will likely start a relationship.

Voiced by: Laura Bailey (RE6), Mayuki Sako (RE6 (Japanese))
Facial model by: Natasha Alam

Helena Harper is an agent in the United States Secret Service, who joined the USSS at some point in 2012. In 2013, she was assigned as a personal bodyguard for the U.S. President, Adam Benford, and was blackmailed by Derek C. Simmons into assisting in the bioterrorist attack in the American town of Tall Oaks. After the President, who had turned into a zombie, was shot in the head and killed by Leon S. Kennedy, Helena -who was filled with guilt over her part in the operation- cooperated with Leon from that point on. Helena also had a sister called Deborah who had been captured and used as a leverage against her by Simmons. Helena was very protective of her, having shot her former abusive boyfriend for the way he treated her; this information is unlocked by shooting a Serpent Emblem in-game. Despite Helena obeying Simmons' orders, he infected Deborah with the C-Virus. As such she turned into a B.O.W and was killed in a fight with Helena, Leon and Ada. Helena and Leon eventually confronted and killed Simmons in Lanshiang, China.

Ingrid Hunnigan[edit]

Voiced by: Salli Saffioti (RE4, Degeneration, Damnation, RE6), Yū Sugimoto (Degeneration, Damnation, RE6 (Japanese))

Jack Krauser[edit]

Voiced by: Jim Ward (RE4, DC, Mercenaries 3D)
Motion capture: Ryouji Okamoto (RE4, in-game), Munenori Yuo (RE4, cutscenes)

Jack Krauser (ジャック・クラウザー Jakku Kurauzā?) is a freelance mercenary hired to do Saddler's bidding.[48] Originally a U.S. government operative, Krauser was friends with Leon Kennedy, before apparently perishing in a helicopter crash.[49] Krauser is responsible for kidnapping Ashley, claiming he committed the act to gain Saddler's trust. He has little interest in Saddler's agenda, and only seeks to recover a sample of Las Plagas for Albert Wesker.[50][51][52] In addition to being a skilled knife fighter and archer, Krauser possesses superhuman speed, stamina, strength, and gained the ability to transform his left arm into a giant mutated claw.[53] He confronts Kennedy twice in the game. After apparently dying during a fight with Kennedy, Krauser appears as a boss in the "Assignment: Ada" scenario, and is killed once and for all by Ada in the "Separate Ways" scenario.[53][54] Krauser is playable in Mercenaries mode. He uses his bow in combat and can also utilize his mutated arm as a melée weapon. The Darkside Chronicles provides backstory for Krauser as he is partnered with Leon to arrest a drug lord in South America. During their journey they discover the village has suffered an outbreak of the T-virus,[55] encounter Manuela Hidalgo, who has been infected with the T-Veronica virus, and Krauser learns of Wesker and Umbrella's conspiracy. Before defeating the mutated drug lord, Krauser's arm is severely injured and he is forced to leave the military. He seeks out Wesker to recover from his injury and become stronger.[56]

Jake Muller[edit]

Voiced by: Troy Baker (RE6), Daisuke Namikawa (RE6 (Japanese))
Motion capture: Troy Baker, Daniel Southworth (stunt double)

Jake Muller is the son of the late Albert Wesker, a eugenicist, virologist and bioterrorist, who formerly worked for Umbrella and left Jake's mother soon after his birth. Jake would later work as a freelance mercenary in order to support his mother. Operating in anti-government operations in the Eastern European republic of Edonia, Jake was caught up in an act of bioterrorism. His mercenary comrades were infected with the C-virus, but Jake's specialized blood was able to resist the infection. Soon after, he met U.S. government agent Sherry Birkin - whose father, William Birkin, was coincidentally Albert's research partner. Sherry and Jake took part in the subsequent battle between the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance and the mutated mercenaries.[57] With his blood resistant to the downside-effects of mutagenic viruses like his father, Jake also inherited several of his father's signature abilities such as increased strength, speed, healing, and advanced combat skills. He was sought after for his blood during the bioterrorist attacks that were now taking place world-wide and was willing to hand over his blood to be used for the development of a cure, in exchange for a large sum of money. He and Sherry were captured by Carla Radames, a doppelgänger of Ada Wong, and detained in Lanshiang, China, but managed to escape during the C-virus outbreak in the city six months later. Over the course of the story of RE6, Jake became closer to Sherry as he came to terms with both the knowledge of his father's actions and of his death at the hands of Chris Redfield three years earlier. After the ordeal, Jake started a new life fighting BOWs in an underdeveloped country with his real identity covered up by the BSAA.

Lisa Trevor[edit]

Lisa Trevor (リサ・トレヴァー Risa Torevā?) is a character and enemy in the remake of Resident Evil and The Umbrella Chronicles.[58] She is the daughter of George Trevor, a famed architect who designed the Arklay Research Facility and the Queen Zenobia (along with her sister ships). After George discovers that the mansion is actually hosting a secret underground laboratory, Spencer kidnaps him and his family. While his henchmen kill off George, his wife and daughter are used as test subjects for the Umbrella Corporation's viral experiments. Lisa spent nearly 30 years in captivity, undergoing several horrific experiments that rob her of her humanity. She develops uncanny abilities that make her stronger, and in essence, immortal. Lisa also proves to be the key in the development of Birkin's G-virus, as a primitive form of the virus is extracted from her body. Lisa loses her mind during this period, and becomes obsessed with finding her mother, who was killed years before. Wesker, then one of Umbrella's top research scientists, orders his personnel to dispose of Lisa; however, she survives her execution, and wanders the mansion's grounds in hopes of finding her mother. Finally she was able to find the skull of her mother. Nearly a decade later, Lisa encounters various STARS members, before finding Wesker in the mansion. Wesker escapes the mansion's self-destruction, where Lisa is killed.[59]

In 2012, IGN ranked as the ninth best boss in the series, adding, "Not only can her wails be heard throughout the game, she effectively can’t be killed – only deterred. Few things are scarier than that, making her one of the more memorable and entrenched characters in the series."[31]

Luis Sera[edit]

Voiced by: Rino Romano (RE4)
Motion capture: Keiichi Wada (RE4)

Luis Sera (ルイス・セラ Ruisu Sera?) is a Spanish investigator, who is American tries to assist Kennedy and Ada Wong in their efforts against Los Illuminados.[60] He is extremely familiar with the village where the game is set and formerly worked with Osmund Saddler to research and develop the cult's mind-controlling parasites.[61] After realizing Saddler intends to use the parasites for malicious purposes, he attempts to sabotage the cult's mission. Sera meets Kennedy after both men are captured by villagers.[53] He introduces himself as a former policeman from Madrid, who became dissatisfied with his job.[62] It is later revealed in the game that Sera was one of the top researchers in finding Las Plagas. He considered the resulting outbreak to be his fault and attempted to eliminate it, aiding Leon. He is ultimately killed by Saddler before he can present him with a sample of Las Plagas.[53][63]

Moira Burton[edit]

Voiced by: Marcella Lentz-Pope (Revelations 2), Ayumi Fujimura (Revelations 2 (Japanese))

Moira is the eldest daughter of STARS veteran, Barry Burton. In Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Moira and her Terra Save co-workers including Claire Redfield are all captured and taken to an abandoned prison facility, being watched by Alex Wesker. Moira is a secondary character in Claire's portion of the game, but she refuses to use firearms due to a phobia of handling them, but she can use tools such as crowbars to break open boxes and to attack enemies with, and uses foul language a lot of the time. She is estranged from her father. Eventually while fighting a mutated Neil Fisher (who betrayed the Terra Save group), Moira overcomes her fear of using a gun in order to save Claire if the player selects this option, which is canon. Through flashbacks, it is revealed her fear stemmed from accidentally shooting her sister, Polly, who luckily survived. Moira is later separated from Claire and saved by Evgeny, a Russian man who later chooses death once his daughter is allegedly dead. Moira then returns to save her father and friends from Alex Wesker, who is now fully mutated. Alex however lives on through possessing Natalia, who had become Moira's adoptive sister.

Natalia Korda[edit]

Voiced by: Gabriella Pastore (Revelations 2), Aoi Yūki (Revelations 2 (Japanese))

A young girl who is a playable character in Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Natalia accompanies Barry Burton immediately when he arrives on an island to search for his missing daughter, Moira. Natalia explains that she is an orphan due to the death of her parents. Natalia can find items that are hidden, detect the presence of invisible or off-screen enemies (indicated by a glowing effect) and go through small passageways to reach otherwise unreachable areas. Since Natalia cannot use any firearms, she can pick up bricks to throw at any monsters, but often has to evade the monsters.

Alex Wesker targets Natalia throughout the course of the plot in order to transfer her soul into her, believing she is not "true" like she is. Alex (when in a grotesque form near the climax of the game), causes Natalia's fear to reach its highest on her wrist bracelet, but it is not explained what happens to Natalia. In a prequel segment, Dark Natalia joined Natalia to help find "Lottie", Natalia's beloved teddy bear, and she then begins her association with Barry, now having the ability to see any monsters that Barry cannot always notice. In the true ending, it was revealed prior to Alex mutating into her third and final form, that she was able to transfer her mind into Natalia's body up until the young girl's body had been fully taken over by Alex, in 2013. Barry adopts Natalia after Alex is seemingly defeated, but she is seen reading a piece by Franz Kafka then smiling, so Alex succeeded.

Osmund Saddler[edit]

Voiced by: Michael Gough (RE4)
Motion capture: Kenji Hata (RE4)

Osmund Saddler (オズムンド・サドラー Ozumundo Sadorā?) is the primary antagonist of Resident Evil 4.[64] He is the leader of Los Illuminados, the cult responsible for Ashley Graham's kidnapping.[34] Saddler plans on infecting Graham with a sample of Las Plagas, in hope that she will return home and infect higher-ranking members of the U.S. government.[35] Saddler then wishes to control them and seize control of the country, and then the world.[35] He uses samples of Las Plagas to infect and control villagers and even a local castellan Ramon Salazar (ラモン・サラザール) to perform his bidding. However, his plans are foiled by the combined efforts of Kennedy, Wong and Luis Sera. Kennedy, with the assistance of Wong, kills Saddler near the game's conclusion, and destroys his research and production complex.[53]

Raymond Vester[edit]

Voiced by: David Vincent (Revelations), Yasunori Matsumoto (Revelations (Japanese))

Raymond Vester was one of the top agents working of the FBC (Federal Bioterrorism Commission). At the time of the 2004 Terragrigia Panic, Raymond was an inexperienced cadet in the FBC. Injured by Veltro's Farfarello, he was rescued by the more experienced agents Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. Retreating back to the conference room where FBC Commissioner Morgan Lansdale was residing, Raymond stumbled upon a telephone conversation Lansdale was having with the Veltro leader, Jack Norman. Raymond became increasingly suspicious of his commanding officer, and knew that he was somehow involved with the bio-terrorist attack. However, he was unable to act on these suspicions, as the city was evacuated and destroyed soon after. At some point after this attack, Raymond became an informant for BSAA leader Clive R. O'Brian, operating as his mole within the FBC. O'Brian and Vester devised a plan to oust Lansdale as the architect of the Terragrigia attack through engineering the "return" of Veltro. Vester would pose as Jack Norman, and O'Brian used a mountain airbase and several of his own troops to create the illusion that the terrorist group had resurfaced. In doing so, the two hoped to collect enough evidence to expose Lansdale. During the Queen Zenobia incident, O'Brian let slip that agents Jessica Sherawat and Chris Redfield were captured by Veltro aboard the Zenobia. Intercepting this information, Lansdale sent Vester and his partner Rachael to the ship to determine if the BSAA agents supposedly on board the vessel would pose any threat to him. Vester and O'Brian agreed to push forward the schedule of their plan. After boarding the ship, Vester, with and without his Veltro disguise, encountered Luciani and Valentine on the ship's bridge, making his presence known. Soon after, Agents Sherawat and Redfield boarded the vessel. Just as Raymond was about to reveal Lansdale's secrets to the group, Lansdale's mole, Jessica Sherawat, shot Raymond in the chest, causing him to fall from the balcony. Though Raymond was wearing a bulletproof vest and was unharmed by Jessica's shot, he faked his death while in her presence but whispered critical information about the conspiracy and her true identity. He later resurfaced and helped a gravely injured Luciani escape the sinking ship. Unbeknown to Parker, both Raymond and Jessica were agents of the pharmaceutical division of TRICELL, which had promoted the development of T-Abyss. The two met in a cafe in an unnamed European country, where Vester provided Sherawat with a sample of the T-Abyss.

Sherry Birkin[edit]

Voiced by: Lisa Yamanaka (RE2), Laura Bailey (The Darkside Chronicles), Eden Riegel (Operation Raccoon City, RE6), Hisako Kanemoto (Operation Raccoon City (Japanese)), Maaya Sakamoto (RE6 (Japanese))

Sherry Birkin (シェリー・バーキン Sherī Bākin?) is the daughter of William and Annette Birkin. She first appears in Resident Evil 2, running away and hiding in Raccoon City during the outbreak. She manages to find Leon and Claire, who protect her while trying to escape the city. Sherry is a playable character in some parts of the game but she is completely unarmed and can only avoid the monsters. Her father has been transformed into a monstrous creature by the G-virus and infects his daughter, but Claire gives Sherry an anti-virus, which prevents her from mutating. Sherry assists Leon and Claire in boarding a secret underground train, and successfully escapes Raccoon City before it is destroyed. Sherry also appears in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles in chapters that recapitulate the events of Resident Evil 2. She returns as an adult in Resident Evil 6 as a government agent escorting Jake Muller and seems to have acquired great healing abilities from the remnants of the G-virus in her body. During the course of the game, she helps Jake deal with the fact that Albert Wesker is his father. She also learns from Leon S. Kennedy that her superior, Derek C. Simmons, is the man responsible for the U.S. President's death. She and Jake subsequently ally with Leon, Chris Redfield and their partners in thwarting Carla Radames' plans. Sherry and Jake appear to have become closer during and after their life-threatening journey, developing a strong sense of trust over their similar life experiences. There is also a hinted romance between the two over the course of the game.

Steve Burnside[edit]

Voiced by: Bill Houston (Code Veronica), Sam Riegel (The Darkside Chronicles)

Steve Burnside (スティーブ・バーンサイド Sutību Bānsaido?) is Claire Redfield's partner in the game Resident Evil Code: Veronica. Steve was imprisoned in the Rockfort Island's facility alongside his father, a former Umbrella employee. He escapes from his cell during the viral outbreak. At first, Steve is hesitant to trust Claire and only cooperates with her reluctantly, but later becomes more open and attached to her after he is forced to kill his own father, who has become a zombie during the outbreak. Steve and Claire eventually end up in Umbrella's Antarctic Facility, where he is captured by Alexia and used as a test subject for the T-Veronica virus. Claire meets a chained Steve, who mutates into a monster and attacks Claire; in this form, he is nearly invulnerable to damage, and wields a giant, ceremonial axe. While running from Steve, Claire is attacked by one of Alexia's tentacles. Steve, seeing this, regains control of his mind and cuts the tentacle apart, freeing Claire. In retaliation, Alexia strikes him with one of the tentacles, inflicting a mortal wound. His failing body finally rejects the mutation, and he changes back. He dies in Claire's arms, just after professing his love to her. He was later taken by Albert Wesker due to the T-Veronica virus in his body, and also hinted that he might come back to life. In The Darkside Chronicles it is revealed that Wesker contacted the drug baron Javier Hidalgo and took a sample of T-Veronica from Steve's corpse in order to sell the virus for Hidalgo's ailing daughter, Manuela.

  47. ^ Capcom (2012-10-02). Resident Evil 6. Xbox 360. Capcom. Level/area: Ada - Chapter 3. The Family has been manipulating the course of human development for a long time. Their ostensible goal is to maintain stability in the world, but its true motivation lies in exploiting events to benefit its members. For now, they believe maintaining that stability is contingent upon keeping the United States at the top of the pyramid of world power. If the truth about the U.S. government's connections to Umbrella's bioweapons program were to get out, it would destabilize the world and remove America from the top of that hierarchy of power. Derek sets into motion a plan that will launch a bioterrorist attack and assassinate the president, thus preserving The Family's designs on power and stability.
