"I'm glad that I met you ... I... I love you... Claire..."
The seventeen-year-old son of an Umbrella double agent appearing in Code: Veronica, captured and sent to prison on Rockfort Island along with his father. He managed to escape in the chaos of an outbreak of the T-Virus along with Claire Redfield, who he found himself teaming up with beyond the prison.
Does This Remind You of Anything?: In Code: Veronica, Steve has a barcode tattoo on his left forearm that bears a lot of similarities to a Nazi concentration camp tattoo, a tattoo that is strongly implied to have been gotten due to his status as a prisoner on Alexia's Antarctica fortress.
Emo Teen: Though it's not unjustified. If you need specifics, his dad worked for Umbrella and became a mole. Umbrella found out, killed his mom and imprisoned both his dad and himself. Then there's the viral outbreak, he has to kill his own dad to prevent him from chomping on Claire...
Alexia's twin brother who had been running their estate and facilities on Rockfort Island in her place. Notably rather obsessed with his sister, having practically worshipped her ever since they were children, fully acknowledging her as the most intelligent of the two, and missed her like crazy for fifteen years.
Brother-Sister Incest/Twincest: Really, just ask anyone who's played Code: Veronica. The novelization makes Alfred's sexual feelings for Alexia far more obvious.
Cold Sniper: Sort of, he is still childish and insane, rather than the stoic personality a cold sniper usually has. However, he is definitely not a friendly sniper, as he enjoys trying to shoot Claire and doesn't really like her.
Morality Pet: Well, not a morality pet whatsoever so much as a humanity pet to Alexia. Hell, the reason she blows up Claire and Steve's snowmobile and has the latter turn Tragic Monster is to avenge his death.
A noblewoman descended from one of Umbrella's founders, a genius scientist since at least the age of ten, and the prominent antagonist of Code: Veronica despite having been, as far as anyone knows, dead as of fifteen years before the game took place. She wasn't. Rather, she was in cryogenic sleep to incubate the specially-altered strain of the T-Veronica virus she injected herself with when she was twelve to become a god.
Go Mad from the Revelation: How much sanity she actually had to begin with is questionable, as she was seen watching Alfred kill a dragonfly as a kid, but she at least had some integrity. However, after learning about the nature of her birth, let's just say that she really went off the deep end a'la Sephiroth.
An Umbrella security agent responsible for capturing Claire and having her imprisoned on Rockfort Island.
Badass Normal: Although he's been critically wounded by HCF troops, Rodrigo is one of the only Umbrella personnel still alive on the island by the time the game begins.
Cruel and Unusual Death: Swallowed whole by the Gulp Worm and, if you decide to kill the monster, he's thrown back up after being partially digested by it. Not at all a pleasant way to go.
Pet the Dog: He releases Claire from her cell, deciding that if she has no hope of escape anyway, she may as well die free. Claire later returns the favor by bringing him another bottle of hemostat to staunch his bleeding.
