TRANSLATOR’S NOTE

The BSAA SOU ‘User’ page describes Blue Umbrella literally as ‘Neo Umbrella’. To avoid inevitable confusions with the terrorist organisation in Biohazard 6, it has been translated here as ‘New Umbrella’.

INTRODUCTION:

Personal Management Armament System: Arsenal System.

The Arsenal System allows you to promptly register your personal arsenal, which is managed by Umbrella Corporation, to streamline construction of your own arsenal when performing your missions. In the database, you can also check the data of rare armaments. We hope you use this information as a reference for your own equipment.

WEAPONS:

LIGHTNING HAWK .50AE 10” MAGNAPORT CUSTOM/LIGHTNING HAWK 50AE 6”
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 370 mm
WEIGHT: 1,242g
MAGAZINE: 7
CALIBER: .50”

ABOUT:
This is the prototype model that became the basis for the “Ultimate Weapon for Zombie Warfare”. It comes standard with a Picatinny-sized long rail and undermount, which was barely understood at the time, on a pallet that extends to 10in. It has double ports and a simple grip with the initials of the user as a motif. It is a product that embodies the spirit of Jo Kendo’s customisation, although the design of the safety lever was too eccentric for the time.

CODEX:
Barry Burton, a S.T.A.R.S. member who felt that the standard-issue 9mm rounds were inadequate as a means of combating varying types of crime, privately commissioned his friend, gunsmith Joe Kendo, to create a custom gun with the intention of adopting it as the S.T.A.R.S.’ ‘Lethal Weapon of choice’ in the fight against zombies.

Because it was a request from a close friend, Kendo devoted all of his heart and soul into the prototype, which at the time was something that no one could understand. (In later times, this would become the norm, so Kendo’s foresight was admirable) Unfortunately, Joe Kendo’s masterpiece was never given to Barry, and to Leon S. Kennedy, who found it by chance and needless to say, it was a great success. As a postscript, over 20 years later, the gun was safely returned to the client, Barry Burton.

ALBERT.W.MODEL 01P
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 219 mm
WEIGHT: 966g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
This handgun is issued to each member of the BSAA Special Operations Unit (S.O.U.). Unlike the primary weapon, which is selected according to the situation, it is often carried as a secondary weapon, and is designed to withstand any extreme environment in which it is used.

CODEX:
This is not a low-cost model based on the ‘ALBERT.W.MODEL 01’, but a performance model with increased versatility. This is the first mass-produced model in the Samurai Edge series and was designed to be the ultimate in battle proof technology.

The shortened barrel and standard slide make the Samurai Edge a highly versatile and versatile gun for any situation. The checkered frame with its beaver tail always aids precision shooting. The uniform black environmental coating guarantees stable operation even in extreme conditions. It is the ultimate mass production model that literally enhances performance to the extreme. It is currently adopted by the B.S.A.A. as standard equipment for the S.O.U., who are responsible for various B.O.W. countermeasures, and has achieved a great deal of success.

THOR’S HAMMER <Albert.W.Model 02>
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 800 mm
WEIGHT: 4630g
MAGAZINE: 12
CALIBER: 12 gauge

ABOUT:
At first glance, it looks like a submachine gun, but its compact appearance belies its high firepower. It can be used as a regular shotgun, but it can also be used in semi-automatic mode for continuous firing if necessary. Developed based on Umbrella’s accumulated field data, this gun boasts features that go beyond the scope of a conventional “shotgun.

CODEX:
In order to respond to unique situations that are not limited to person-to-person combat, it is an urgent issue for those familiar with actual field situations that a firearm is needed that enables ‘surface’ suppression, rather than conventional ‘point’ suppression.

The ‘ALBERT.W.MODEL 02’ was conceived as one of the answers to this problem. This gun, which combines the suppressive power of a shotgun with the rapid-fire power of a machine gun, was enthusiastically welcomed by the front line immediately after it was supplied.

Even though it is a new model, it is anticipated to become more reliable following future feedback and expected to become the main weapon of Umbrella in the future.

SAMURAI EDGE ALBERT.W.MODEL 01
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 395 mm
WEIGHT: 1295g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
Chris Redfield, now a member of Umbrella, and his steel companion have overcome numerous crises and have always crossed the line of death. Although the base gun looks familiar, the appearance of the gun with the Light Adaptor Module and Octagon Silencer goes far beyond the image of a handgun that is generally imagined.

CODEX:
Once you see it, you will not forget it. The ‘ALBERT.W.MODEL 01’ boasts a high degree of practicality unimaginable from its initial appearance.
The ‘Octagon Silencer,’ which is highly compatible with covert action, can be used by skilled users to remove obstacles before their presence is noticed. The ‘Light Adapter Module’ can also be used to carry out missions in the dark. Needless to say, the “ALBERT.W.MODEL 01” was born because the base “Samurai Edge” had plenty of scope for variation.

SAMURAI EDGE <SPECIAL COLOUR VARIATION>
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 216mm
WEIGHT: 947g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
The Samurai Edge is a famous gun that has been subject to extreme treatment by members who find themselves in extreme situations. The Samurai Edge seen so far has a dignified colour scheme, but this Samurai Edge produced to commemorate the 20th anniversary of something is an extremely rare model with a military-style sand colour scheme. Such commemorative models tend to be produced with a disregard for actual combat, however this gun uses different shades of sand colour for the main parts, but the sights and levers are finished in black to give a gradation to the entire model, thus increasing the camouflage effect and making it more battle-ready. Unfortunately, there is no data on the actual use of this commemorative model in the field, but even if it had been, we can easily predict that it would have performed as well as the standard model.

CODEX:
The basic specs are identical to those of the Samurai Edge Standard Model, but this is a custom model that adopts a sandy colour unlike the Samurai Edge models that have been confirmed so far.

The intent behind its production is unknown, but the fact that multiple production runs can be confirmed suggests that the order was placed at the organizational level rather than the individual level.

The use of different shades of sandy colours for the main parts, and the black finish on the sights and levers to give a gradation to the overall effect and increase the camouflage, suggests that a well experienced organisation was behind the project.

SAMURAI EDGE STANDARD MODEL <HI-GRADE VARIATION>
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 216mm
WEIGHT: 944g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
The “Samurai Edge” is a custom-made M92F gun that has been described as “the F1 racing machine of handguns. In 1998, the same year that it was adopted by STARS, it proved its specifications in the ‘Mansion Incident’ and contributed to the survival of several members of STARS despite them being in an unexpected and desperate situation. The name ‘Samurai Edge’ is derived from the artistic lines on the side of the Brigadier slide, reminiscent of a samurai’s blade, and from Joe Kendo, a Japanese American. With the exception of Chris, Jill, Barry, and Wesker, who added their own customisations, eight members of the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team are said to have used the ‘Samurai Edge Standard Model’, and Rebecca Chambers, the sole survivor of the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team in the ‘Mansion Incident’, is one of them.

CODEX:
The standard model of the Samurai Edge officially adopted by S.T.A.R.S., this gun is a custom-made version of the M92F semi-automatic handgun that has been raised to the level of a F1 racing machine through the skilful work of its creator, Joe Kendo.

The Brigadier style slide lock was thickened to use a special high-intensity bullet that fires a 9x19mm round with an initial velocity of .357 Magnum. Its sharp-edged silhouette and silver barrel are reminiscent of a samurai blade, hence the name “Samurai Edge”.

It is believed that eight S.T.A.R.S. personnel, excluding Chris, Jill, Barry and Wesker, used this standard model, but it is now difficult to confirm the use of the model due to the ‘Mansion Incident’ that occurred shortly after its official adoption.

SAMURAI EDGE <Barry Burton Model VER.II>
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 258mm
WEIGHT: 1,155g
MAGAZINE: 20
CALIBER: .38inch

ABOUT:
In response to veteran warrior Barry Burton’s request to ‘Make a new Samurai Edge for me’, Quint Cetcham, one of the BSAA’s most skilled and creative engineers, developed the ‘Samurai Edge Barry Burton Model Ver.II’. It is based on the superior M9 that master gunsmith Joe Kendo gave to Barry as a birthday gift. The most distinctive feature is the larger compensator. This is the part that Quint and Barry spent the most time on, and it contributes to ballistic stability by efficiently releasing the firing gas that also serves as the muzzle brake. The center of the grip, which is a fusion of one part rubber and one part wood, is embedded with a gold and red medallion in Barry’s image colours, making it obvious that this is a customised model of Barry Burton.

CODEX:
Many years had passed since the “Mansion Incident,” and Barry was finally approaching old age. He had passed his peak as a warrior, and he knew better than most that he could no longer control the power of the .40SW as he had in the past.

Because of his current physical condition, he chose to use the 9mm Parabellum round, which had less power than the .40SW, but he never gave up on the idea of a ‘sure-fire kill’. He thought that by reducing recoil and improving stability and portability, he could gain an advantage that would compensate for the power.

Barry wanted Quint to craft a Samurai Edge that would allow him to get the best performance out of his ‘current’ self. He wanted to be able to manipulate it as if it was a part of his body to get the desired result.

In response to Barry’s request, Quint collected and analysed Barry’s personal data, including his height and weight, and used it as the basis for a heated discussion with Barry. At first, Barry’s unwavering ideas about the gun and Quint’s skills and knowledge, backed up by the data collected, were vastly different, but after much debate and test firing, buried in a mountain of prototypes, the gun was completed.

SAMURAI EDGE A1 <JILL VALENTINE MODEL>
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 216mm
WEIGHT: 961g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38inch

ABOUT:
Samurai Edge A1’ refined to suit the times. The ‘Brigadier Slide’ is based on the M9A1 with a thicker and stronger locking mechanism and is engraved with ‘STARS’ and ‘Custom Shop Kendo’. The ‘hybrid custom grip’ is a fusion of the ‘wood type grip’ and the ‘rubber type grip’ in order to achieve a high level of hold. The ‘inside of the grip’ is decorated with a ‘STARS exclusive medallion’ arranged in light blue, identified immediately as Jill Valentine’s personal colour.

CODEX:
Quint, the Assistant Director of the BSAA’s Technical Development Department, recognized the need for specialised equipment to deal with the unique situation of bio-terrorism, and focused his attention on the “Samurai Edge”, the M92F customized by S.T.A.R.S., the former special forces unit of the Raccoon City Police Department.

Borrowing the ‘Samurai Edge’ from former S.T.A.R.S. and current BSAA member, Jill Valentine, it was studied and tested, and the and the new M9A1-based “Samurai Edge A1” was created.

The gun was later provided to Jill, who was working on the front lines of anti-bioterrorism, and the S.T.A.R.S. medallion was added to the grip and the S.T.A.R.S. and Custom Shop Kendo engravings to the slide.

SENTINEL NINE LEON MODEL
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 240mm
WEIGHT: 827g
MAGAZINE: 20
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
The ‘Sentinel Nine’ was developed to meet versatility, reliability, and stability, elements required for an agent’s equipment as presented by Leon, an experienced agent himself. The Sentinel Nine is based on the SIG P226E2, Leon’s weapon of choice, and has been heavily customized to meet his exacting requirements. Although there are several pre-production versions of the ‘Sentinel Nine’, they were not received by Leon until after the Tall Oaks terrorist attack and it is likely that field data has been collected since then. On the side of the slide is imprinted the DSD motto “PEACE THROUGH FIGHTING”. It is a fitting motto for the organisation.

CODEX:
The operational activities of DSO agents are mainly based on in-depth investigations and espionage. The firearms provided to them are mainly high-performance handguns that are portable, but the firearms developed for the military and police were not developed for special situations like bio-terrorism or biological weapons. It is only natural that the DSO came up with the idea of developing and supplying “dedicated” equipment for the special situations and operations that the agents face on a daily basis.

In the past, the United States had a large anti-bioterrorism unit called the Federal Bioterrorism Commission (FBC), which was aimed at suppressing bioterrorism and was different in nature from the DSO, but it was also dedicated to the development of equipment with ample financial resources that matched the military budget of a small country. This specialised counter-bioterrorism equipment program was codenamed ‘Sentinel’.

With the dissolution of the FBC, the Sentinel Project naturally disappeared. However, the Sentinel Project was resurrected by the DSO, which took note of the vast amount of data on the various equipment devised for the project, the prototypes that were manufactured, and the analysis of the unique circumstances that bioterrorism brings.
Leon S. Kennedy, a leading DSO agent with many years of experience in the field of bioterrorism, is the supervisor of the revived Sentinel Project. This gun was developed to meet the three keywords of “versatility”, “certainty”, and “stability” that he proposed after experiencing battle many times over.

SAMURAI EDGE BARRY BURTON MODEL
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 259mm
WEIGHT: 946g
MAGAZINE: 14
CALIBER: .40”

ABOUT:
Barry Burton, who is particular about ‘big guns, heavy power’, chose the 40S&W bullet, which is more powerful than the standard 9mm 19 rounds. In addition, he requested that the gun be customized to withstand the use of the enhanced “+” ammunition. In order to reduce the recoil shock when firing, a four-port hole at the tip of the barrel is attached to a ‘large compensator’ and a ‘stabiliser’. The lower part of the stabiliser is equipped with a ‘larger-than-diameter’ mounting module to accommodate various modules such as a ‘laser sight’ and ‘flashlight’. The magazine has also been extended to fit the case size of .40 S&W ammunition.

SAMURAI EDGE CHRIS REDFIELD MODEL
SPECIFICATIONS:

WEIGHT: 755g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
‘Samurai Edge’ customised for Chris Redfield, who boasted the best shooting skills in S.T.A.R.S. Essentially based on the ‘Jill model’, the Brigadier style slide, which is a characteristic of the Samurai Edge, has been replaced with a hard steel slide for high accuracy and operability for ‘shooting’, and the surface was subject to a “matte blue finish”.

* The “matte blue finish” is a chemical film applied to the steel surface to improve dust resistance.

MAGAZINE: 7
CALIBER: .50”

ABOUT:
A model that further evolved the ‘Ultimate weapon for Zombie Warfare’. The long 10mm barrel increases the power and accuracy of the weapon. The weight and the high recoil of the weapon make it suitable for a wide range of users, but when used by a skilled shooter, it is extremely powerful.

SAMURAI EDGE STANDARD MODEL
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 216 mm
WEIGHT: 755g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
The ‘Samurai Edge Standard Model’ is a custom handgun designed for S.T.A.R.S. The ultimate precision custom gun that brought out the full potential of the base weapon, the M92F, to the limit. This ‘Samurai Edge Standard Model’ was supplied to eight S.T.A.R.S. members with the exception of Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Barry Burton, and Albert Wesker, who requested additional customisations based on their own ideas.

CODEX:
The standard model of the Samurai Edge officially adopted by S.T.A.R.S., this gun is a custom-made version of the M92F semi-automatic handgun that has been raised to the level of a F1 racing machine through the skilful work of its creator, Joe Kendo.

The Brigadier style slide lock was thickened to use a special high-intensity bullet that fires a 9x19mm round with an initial velocity of .357 Magnum. Its sharp-edged silhouette and silver barrel are reminiscent of a samurai blade, hence the name “Samurai Edge”.

It is believed that eight S.T.A.R.S. personnel, excluding Chris, Jill, Barry and Wesker, used this standard model, but it is now difficult to confirm the use of the model due to the ‘Mansion Incident’ that occurred shortly after its official adoption.

SAMURAI EDGE JILL VALENTINE MODEL
SPECIFICATIONS:
OVERALL LENGTH: 216mm
WEIGHT: 755g
MAGAZINE: 15
CALIBER: .38”

ABOUT:
S.T.A.R.S. is more reminiscent of a military special forces’ unit, such as the Army’s ‘Delta Force’, rather than a S.W.A.T. unit of the police. This is because it also investigates incidents, intelligence activities, and conducts special operations. Jill Valentine, an expert in explosive ordinance, is more likely to be involved in intelligence and special operations work than in frontline firefights. She often carries her handgun in a holster behind her waist for backup and has a small slide stop to prevent it from catching on her clothing when she draws it. The colour of the medallion has been changed to ‘light blue’, Jill’s personal colour.

USERS:

BSAA S.O.U. MEMBER

The strongest Anti-B.O.W. unit founded through Investment from around the World.

The BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance), the anti-bioterrorism special unit with branches around the world, was founded in 2003 in response to social unrest caused by the revelation of the danger of bioterrorism (terrorism using bacteria, viruses, and genetically modified organisms) as a result of the large-scale biohazards created by the Umbrella Corporation. The anxiety caused by bioterrorism was directed toward the Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies, which ended up becoming the cause of the incidents. Having been forced to bear the moral responsibility for the development of biological weapons, the Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies invested heavily in order to make up for lost ground and established an organisation specializing in biological disasters. It is said that this organization was the basis for the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance). In its early stages after being founded, it was criticized for activities that prioritized protecting the company’s profits and having excessive armaments, but it later came to be managed and integrated by the United Nations, significantly enhancing its philosophy. It has the authority to act extrajudicially and has an agreement with governments that it can be deployed immediately after a UN resolution in case of urgent humanitarian relief activities. Because most of the budget for its establishment came from the Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies, among other factors, there are some criticisms that its purpose is to manage accidents caused by companies that invested in it. Presently, its scale exceeds that of the S.A.S. in the United Kingdom, and it is the largest organization among departments uniquely managed by the United Nations.

Most of the members of the S.O.U. (Special Operations Unit), the enforcement unit within the BSAA, have transferred from the military or law enforcement agencies, while it also includes former private soldiers and researchers. Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, and Barry Burton, who are famous for their accomplishments during the Raccoon City Incident, are also members, demonstrating how wide-ranging its membership is. In addition, there is also a team formed of members who are highly skilled in certain aspects. As it is called the Original Eleven, it implicitly acknowledges that its members have special rights.

The actions of members are restricted by their level of 1-10, and S.O.U members that engage in combat activities are given level 4 or higher authority. Members are expected to demonstrate high proficiency in mastering shooting and classical martial arts, as well as techniques for operating special weapons.

Compared to other armed forces around the world, their Special Forces have more opportunities to be deployed in security and extermination operations, and their combat capability is highly evaluated by military personnel of other countries due to their exceptionally high amount of combat experience. During the plan to eradicate drug cartels in Central and South America Drug Cartel Eradication (exposing genetically modified drugs), which was conducted jointly with the US DEA (United States Drug Enforcement Agency), multiple DEA members who participated proclaimed “Humans cannot stand a chance against them.” This anecdote instantly spread their capabilities around the world. However, there is a theory that the aforementioned Original Eleven was involved in this participating team at the time.

The equipment was not disclosed to the public, but in recent years, with the increase in the number of activities and the release of images, the reality of the situation has become clearer, and the special nature of the team has become a topic of conversation. In order to avoid criticism of the secrecy behind the organisation, PR activities were becoming more active, with the primary and secondary weapons of the S.O.U. covered in a recent issue of SURVIVE MAGAZINE, and the existence of specially developed weapons was revealed.

However, its enormous costs for these activities frequently became an issue. It continued to receive public backlash, as the fact that the re-established New-Umbrella (not registered in the Federation) was included in the list of investors submitted to a public hearing in the British parliament was widely covered by media agencies around the world as an ethical problem.

As of 2018, in order to cooperate with the reconstructed New Umbrella’s B.O.W. eradication activities, some of its troops are reportedly being seconded to help deter bioterrorism by handling special incidents, but there is a lot of doubt, and many voices are questioning these activities.

JILL VALENTINE

A Veteran Warrior with a wealth of Combat Experience.
At the time of the ‘mansion incident’, she was a member of the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team, and her position was RS (Rear Security). She was dexterous and proficient in explosive ordinance disposal and was also good at picking locks with a lock pick. Utilising these skills, she survived the ‘mansion incident’.

After surviving the ‘mansion incident’, she began investigating Umbrella’s main facilities in Raccoon City on her own. However, the situation drastically changed when the ‘t-virus’ was released into the city during the investigation, and she was pursued by the new B.O.W. (Bio-Organic-Weapon) ‘Nemesis T-Type’ that was introduced to take advantage of the chaos. Afterwards, she learned that the U.S. Government was going to attack Raccoon City with a ‘Sterilisation Operation’ and escaped from Raccoon City.

After the destruction of Umbrella, she joined the BSAA (Biohazard Security Assessment Alliance) in search of a new place to fight bioterrorism that had begun to spread around the world. Together with Chris and her new partner, Parker, she helped solve the Queen Zenobia incident.

Later, in August 2006, during the ‘Spencer Residence Raid Operation’, she fell from a cliff with Wesker to save Chris and disappeared, and on November 23rd that same year, the BSAA declared her dead. However, she was kept alive by Wesker, who was interested in the changes to Jill’s body, and was temporarily manipulated by Wesker, but thanks to Chris, she was able to break free of his control and return to her life.

CHRIS REDFIELD

A Living Legend who has endured through many tough times. He was a member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team at the time of the ‘Mansion Incident’. His position was PM (Point Man). He was the no.1 marksman in this elite team and was always active as an ace. He possessed a helicopter flying license and was a former pilot in the U.S. Air Force. After being discharged by the military following a disagreement with his superiors, he was scouted and recruited by S.T.A.R.S. for his superior combat skills. His parents had already passed away and he had a younger sister named Claire.

In the ‘Rockfort Incident’ that took place following the ‘Mansion Incident’, he confronted Albert Wesker. In doing so, this strengthened his awareness in the eradication of bioterrorism.

After that, he was involved in the founding of the BSAA and was a member of the North American branch. He was one of the eleven founding members of the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance), more commonly known as the ‘Original 11’ and was granted a very high level of authority at Level 10.

In August 2006, during the ‘Spencer Residence Raid Operation’, Jill saved Chris and fell with Wesker to the bottom of a cliff, resulting in Jill’s temporary recognition as a martyr.

In 2009, he received word about his former partner, Jill, who had been killed in the line of duty, and participated in the BSAA West Africa branch’s ‘Ricardo Irving Arrest Operation’ as backup. Following a series of incidents, he was reunited with Jill.

In 2012, he was injured during an operation in the Republic of Edonia, and lost his memory, living a life of seclusion and drinking in Eastern Europe. However, after being reprimanded by his subordinate, Piers, he returned to the front line, where he worked with Leon to stop the spread of bio-terrorism on a global scale.

He is currently a member of Umbrella. With his strong body, unyielding spirit, and leadership skills, he has led the way in solving numerous biohazard incidents. He is worthy of being called a ‘hero’, which is a distinction even among various active agents.

BARRY BURTON

A Firearms Expert who survived the Mansion Incident.

At the time of the mansion incident, he was a member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. His position was BUM (Backup Man). There was a time where he served in the same unit as Chris in the past, and after being discharged from the military, he joined S.T.A.R.S. after working as a S.W.A.T. member. He was in charge of the maintenance and replenishment of firearms, utilising his previous field experience and extensive knowledge of guns.

He is a warm-hearted and compassionate man with a strong sense of responsibility. At home, he is a proud husband and father, always looking out for his beloved wife and two daughters (Moira and Polly) whilst on duty.
On the other hand, he is also known as a gun enthusiast and has a close personal relationship with Robert Kendo, the owner of ‘Kendo Gun Shop’ near the Raccoon City Police Station and commissioned him to modify the S.T.A.R.S. regulation pistol, the ‘Samurai Edge’, and contributed to its powerful finish.

Barry is a seasoned veteran of the BSAA, having served as an advisor to the agency after the Mansion Incident, but as an anti-bioterrorism specialist, he is still a good shot and highly skilled in close combat.

At the time of the ‘Mansion Incident’ she belonged to S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team. Her position was RS (Rear Security). She was an expert in the refining and mixing of chemicals and was primarily in charge of health.

At the age of 18, she graduated from university with a Batchelor’s degree. Her talent was recognised, and she was selected to join the elite S.T.A.R.S. team.

She is a woman of action and has the courage to take risks, but she sometimes shows her inexperience by hesitating in unfamiliar situations when she seems to undertake drastic actions. Her survival skills are worthy of special mention, as she was able to survive while many of the veterans were eliminated.

ENRICO MARINI

Deputy Commander with outstanding Survival skills. The second-in-command of S.T.A.R.S. and leader of the Bravo Team. He is a highly respected veteran with excellent survival skills.

He is proud of his strong mental resilience and is unfazed by anything, and during the ‘Mansion Incident’ he overcame many difficulties to find out the truth. It is somewhat ironic that he lost his life because he could have been very dangerous for Umbrella due to his high abilities.

KENNETH J. SULLIVAN

The Oldest Member with a Wealth of Experience. A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team willing to take on dangerous tasks such as reconnaissance and securing positions. In the ‘Mansion Incident’, after entering the mansion, he was attacked by a zombie and ended up dying. Perhaps he was attacked whilst performing reconnaissance and assumed it was a ‘human’… A video recording of his final moments was left behind, and securing it was a priority at that time.

EDWARD DEWEY

The Giant who became first member of the team to be killed. A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team, he was the tallest man on the team at 193cm, yet according to records, his hobby was dancing.

In the ‘Ecliptic Express Incident’, he went out to explore with his rifle, but was killed by a creature attack. Unfortunately, there is no detailed record of his death, but it is believed he eventually became a zombie based on the circumstances at scene.

FOREST SPEYER

An expert Marksman with a flawless work ethic. He was mainly responsible for maintenance in the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team. Since that time, he was known as an excellent marksman, with a reputation for flawless workmanship.

In particular, his marksmanship was comparable to that of Chris of Alpha Team. It is thought that he demonstrated his skill during the ‘Mansion Incident’, but by the time Alpha Team arrived, he had met his end in an altered state. Who would have thought he would come back to life as a zombie and prove his fighting prowess…

BRAD VICKERS

Survivor of the Mansion Incident who tried to survive at all costs. He was a member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team and was responsible for chemical protection and helicopter operations.

At the time of the Mansion Incident, he was a helicopter pilot and was part of the search mission of the Bravo Team, but he did not participate in the search of the laboratory as he was waiting in the air, leaving no data worthy of note.

During the ‘Raccoon Incident’, he was thrown into a panic by the devastation that spread throughout Raccoon City, and although he managed to escape the zombies, he was unable to shake off the ‘Pursuer’ and met a tragic end. His actions proved that evading a creature rather than facing it half-heartedly leads to an increased survival rate.

JOSEPH FROST

A character whose belligerent personality was his downfall. In charge of weapons maintenance for the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. Records show that he was a jovial character.

Due to his belligerent nature, he was thought to be the perfect person to collect battle data, but he was attacked by a pack of Cerberus while searching for the Bravo team and died. He was the first casualty of the ‘Mansion Incident’. Despite his untimely demise, the footage he left behind was used as research material for many years to come.

RICHARD AIKEN

A story of dedication in extreme circumstances. A cheerful and friendly young man who belonged to the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team. During the mission, he was mainly in charge of communications.

During the ‘Mansion Incident’, he protected Rebecca, a rookie, and helped her to survive. He was caught in the fangs of Yawn, a poisonous snake, and almost died, only to somehow overcome the crisis. Afterwards he devoted himself to saving the Alpha Team members who saved him and died a heroic death.

LEON SCOTT KENNEDY

From Rookie Cop to one of the world’s top Agents. As a young police officer of 21 years old, he was involved in the ‘Raccoon Incident’ on the day he arrived at the Raccoon City Police Department. The fact that he was accidentally late for work saved his life. Together with Chris’s sister Claire, and Umbrella researcher William Birkin’s daughter, Sherry, Leon survived the incident and was recruited as a United States agent due to his extraordinary survival skills.

Some time passed, and the ‘Presidential Daughter’s Kidnapping Incident’ occurred, where Ashley Graham, the daughter of the President of the United States, was abducted. Leon was ordered to investigate and rescue her and flew to Europe alone. He learned that the mastermind behind the kidnapping, Osmund Saddler, leader of the Los Illuminados cult, wanted to reign supreme over the world using the ‘Plaga,’ a parasite that could manipulate its host at will, and thwarted his ambition.

After that, he worked with Adam Benford, the president of the United States, to establish the DSO (Division of Security Operations). He has a strong resentment towards bioterrorism due to his past experiences. His personality is calm and collected, but he is also flexible enough to take bold actions depending on the situation.

As Leon has matured as an agent, he has become more cautious in his words and actions, but his occasional wry sense of humour and strong sense of justice have not changed since he was first assigned to Raccoon City as a rookie cop. Adam, who was trying to reveal the truth of Raccoon City, was caught up in the bioterrorism that occurred in Tall Oaks, but Leon ran through the hellish city and worked with Chris to stop it from spreading.
