!!Umbrella Security Service

[[folder: In General]]

* BadAssCrew: Holding their own against hundreds of Umbrella's finest bioweapons for ten hours straight while receiving no casualties whatsoever is nothing short of remarkable.
* EvilCounterpart: To their Echo 6 counterparts.
* FacelessGoons: All the squad members have some form of face concealment.
** GasMaskMooks: Usually by way of respirator masks; which is justified by the fact that the T-Virus can go airborne under certain conditions.
* HiredGuns
* MultinationalTeam: Lupo is French, Vector is Japanese, Four-eyes is Japanese-American, Bertha is German, Beltway is Puerto-rican and Spectre is Russian.
* ThePsychoRangers: To Echo 6. Each of the members has a specialty that is mirrored by a member of Echo 6 in a less sociopathic way.
* [[FiveBadBand Six-Bad Band]]:
** BigBad: Lupo
** CoDragons: Vector and Spectre
** TheEvilGenius: Four Eyes
** TheBrute: Beltway
** TheDarkChick: Bertha
* VillainProtagonist: ''Operation Raccoon City'''s marketing centered around them, with press detailed around them. [[spoiler: Although you can make them pull a HeelFaceTurn at the end.]]

--> ''"Who do we kill next?"''
--> ''Role: Recon''
* TheApprentice: To HUNK
* ClickHello: Pulls on off in the Triple Impact Trailer.
* CoDragons: With Spectre.
* InTheHood
* InvisibilityCloak: His signature ability. Does not work on B.O.W's, though.
* KnifeNut
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Unlike his team members, his true name is never given, only his call sign. He probably got the idea from his mentor.

[[folder:Vladimir Bodrovski '''(SPECTRE)''']]
--> ''"I can see... everything..."''
--> ''Role: Surveillance''
* CoDragons: With Vector.
* ColdSniper
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: Abilities include threat scanning, biothermal vision (ability to pick out human and other targets from crowds), and sonar vision alongside passive item and enemy proximity detection.
* NoPartyLikeADonnerParty: Implied in this little tidbit from Mission 2:
--> Vector: "Ugh... Looks like they were eating each other..."
--> Spectre: "Try surviving Soviet winter. Maybe you won't be so quick to judge."
* SinisterSurveillance
* VerbalTic: Speaks with frequent mid-sentence...pauses. Even when they don't make...much sense. [[spoiler: Matter of fact, he talks so slowly that in the ending where Leon is saved, mission control begins talking over him before Spectre's done talking.]]

[[folder:Hector Hivers '''(BELTWAY)''']]
--> ''"This was supposed to be fun!"''
--> ''Role: Demolition''
* ArtificialLimbs: His left leg is a prosthetic.
* BadassBandolier: Wears a grenade belt.
* TheBrute
* PunchClockVillain: One of the few members of the team who isn't a complete sociopath; he enjoys his job, but still sees it as nothing more than a job.
* SirSwearsALot
* StuffBlowingUp

[[folder:Michaela Schneider '''(BERTHA)''']]
--> ''"This will only hurt a moment!"''
--> ''Role: Medic''
* BattleaxeNurse: Pre-release info states she prefers treating wounded without painkillers.
* TheDarkChick
* [[HerrDoktor Frau Doktor]]
* HiddenHeartOfGold: If you choose to "Spare Leon", she'll team up with you.
* HopelessWithTech: Type 2. ''"I'm terrible with the computers..."''
* MacheteMayhem

[[folder:Christine Yamata '''(FOUR EYES)''']]
--> ''"This is all so fascinating..."''
--> ''Role: Field Scientist''
* AsianAndNerdy
* TheBeastMaster: Can control [=BOWs=] with her special abilities for a short amount of time.
* TheCorrupter: Induce Infection has a chance to infect humans, including Player Characters, and turn them into Crimson Heads on your side.
* TheEvilGenius
* ForScience
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: It's mentioned that due to her extreme interest in science as a child, she never developed the social skills to operate successfully later in life.
* LackOfEmpathy
* NonIndicativeName: She calls herself FOUR EYES, but is one of the team members without any goggles.
* PeekABangs: A mild case of ImprobableHairStyle when you can wade through zombies and explosions for hours on end and still have great hair.
* PlayingWithSyringes
* [[ScienceHero Science]] VillainProtagonist: As mentioned above, her skillset revolves around PlayingWithSyringes; and she is set to spawn with SAW-type weapons if your character doesn't.

[[folder:Karena LesProux '''(LUPO)''']]
--> ''"We take our chances."''
--> ''Role: Assault''
* AnAxeToGrind
* BigBad:
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Killed her abusive husband for trying to harm their children.
* MamaBear: to both the team and her own children. She's even called "Wolf Mother". In her backstory, she was married to an abusive husband, and put up with it until he turned his abuse on one of their children, after which she snapped and killed him with her bare hands.
* MeaningfulName: her name means "wolf" in Italian.
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Mother To Her Men]]
* NamesTheSame: Through what is almost certainly a complete coincidence, Lupo shares her nickname with a BSAA field agent from Wildstorm's relatively obscure 2008 ''Resident Evil'' six-issue limited series.
* PunchClockVillain: Holds no particular loyalty to Umbrella, and only fights for them to support her family.
* TeamMom
* TokenGoodTeammate: At least, less [[SociopathicSoldier mentally unstable]] than the other USS soldiers.

[[folder: Command]]
--> ''"Government forces have already entered the area. Do not let them secure evidence!"''
* AxCrazy: He is incredibly mentally unstable and a hair trigger away from cracking completely.
* BigBad: Since Wolfpack is essentially a team of CoDragons, this nasty piece of shit is the main, true bad guy of the game.
* BadBoss: Up to an including abandoning the Wolfpack to die.
* EvilBrit: Judging from his accent.
* HairTriggerTemper: All it takes is one failed order for them to go from instructive and authoritarian to AxCrazy.
* MissionControl
* TheSociopath: Cruel, malicious, has a disturbing LackOfEmpathy, and quite low functioning considering that he doesn't even bother with trying to be AffablyEvil or even FauxAffablyEvil. His YouHaveFailedMe on the team also lets in on the fact that he sees them as tools to be discarded on a whim if they fail to live up to perfect standards.
* YouHaveFailedMe

!!Government Spec Ops / Echo 6

[[folder: In General]]
* ActionSurvivor: You wouldn't know it to look at them, but a lot of their training is in domestic situations (Dee-Ay and to some extent Harley being exempted), and it's unclear just how much field and combat experience Party Girl, Shona, and Tweed have. As a whole, they're a little less hardened than the USS strike team.
** For instance, Party Girl is clearly flagging by the end of the campaign and everyone wants to get out of dodge; in-game dialogue will have them fearful and confused at a few points, and they have little to no idea what to do with the zombie apocalypse. That said, the [[MoreDakka hail of bullets]] you're likely pumping out renders this trope all but invisible.
* DistaffCounterpart: It seems that their sniper, heavy weapons person, and stealth expert are female, and their leader, medic, and scientist are male; this is the opposite for the USS team.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Unlike the USS Squad, nobody on the Spec Ops team is wearing face masks or helmets.
* MilesToGoBeforeISleep: Echo Six wants ''out'' after ''finally'' evacuating Leon, Claire, and Sherry. Unfortunately, Command needs them for further missions and reluctantly orders them to stay behind to continue fighting in Raccoon City.

[[folder: Crispin Jettingham '''(DEE-AY)''']]
--> ''"Working as a team... that's the only way out of here."''
--> ''Role: Assault''

* TheAce: He's been a soldier so long, he has experience with just about any weapon and the know-how to handle any combat situation.
%%* BadassGay
* TheCaptain: He acts as one, though its unclear what his actual rank is.
* ChildSoldiers: Or so it is implied.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has a small one below his right eye.
* TheLeader: Levelheaded variation.
* NervesOfSteel: Due to the sheer ''amount'' of experience in combat that he has. The Spec Ops trailer shows that blown to hell, though.
* OhCrap: He has two great ones in the Triple Impact teaser trailer.
* StraightGay: You wouldn't know it from anything that happens in the game, but [[ according to his creator]], his callsign stands for "Don't Ask."
* SuperSoldier: All his abilities sort of veer in that direction, including one by that very name.

[[folder: Erez Morris '''(HARLEY)''']]
--> ''"I don't get paid enough for this."''
--> ''Role: Medic''

* BadassBiker: His background
* TheBigGuy
* CharacterDevelopment: Harley found his calling as a healer rather than a fighter during the Gulf War, and gained with it no small amount of compassion.
* CoolShades: Wears them backwards, for some odd reason.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He was about to be sent to jail before he joined the army.
* TheMedic
** CombatMedic: Just as likely to throw-down.
* HiddenDepths: Despite his experience with violence, the army brought forth a facility for ''medicine'' and for helping others. To everyone's surprise, he eventually became a leader in those fields.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: A philosophy he developed while in the Gulf War.
* SirSwearsALot: Comes with being a biker.

[[folder: Lawrence Kimbala '''(SHONA)''']]
--> ''"Move quickly; they are vulnerable!"''
--> ''Role: Field Scientist''

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Looking at the amount of scars he has, and that he grew up in war-torn Zimbabwe.
* EyeScream: His right eye is gray and likely blind, as a scar runs over it.
* HarmfulToMinors: He was dealing with corpses since he was a kid.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His head is covered in some notably long ones.
* PlayingWithSyringes
* StartOfDarkness: It's unclear just where his morals lie, but while at Harvard, his interests changed from curing diseases to manipulating viruses.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He's a little bit more amoral than the rest of Echo Six, being similar to [[MadScientist Four-Eyes]] in character.

[[folder: Marisa Ronson '''(TWEED)''']]
--> ''"Quiet... second only to the sound of a deafening explosion."''
--> ''Role: Demolition

* ActionBomb: Some of her abilities make it a viable-ish strategy, devastatingly useful when cornered but very risky.
* BoisterousBruiser
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In her backstory, she dropped off the radar after a demo-job with SIS went pie-shaped before the US managed to coax her out of retirement.
* SecretIntelligenceService: According to background info, she's on loan from them.
* ShellShockedVeteran: The reason for the above ScrewThisImOuttaHere. She's more or less over it during the game, though.
* SmallGirlBigGun

[[folder: Carolyn Floyd '''(WILLOW)''']]
--> ''"Why are we twiddling with our guns? Let's go!"''
--> ''Role: Recon''

* InjunCountry: She grew up alone on a reservation, and learned combat and stealth there before she was ever in the military, which she joined straight out of high-school.
* KnifeNut: In the Triple Impact Trailer, she stabs the hell out of a Licker.
** DoesNotLikeGuns: Which started out when she threw aside a presumably perfectly functional assault rifle just to knife the thing to death.
** Actually, if you look carefully, the Licker snagged her rifle with its tongue and yanked it out of her hands. Although this is probably why she went for her knife rather than her pistol.
* ThePerfectionist: Possibly as a result of growing up in harsh conditions, she is always keeping her skills sharp.

[[folder: Sienna Fowler '''(PARTY GIRL)''']]
--> ''"Some party this turned out to be."''
--> ''Role: Surveillance''

* CandidCameraPrank: Her specialty in her youth; she apparently threw wild parties for the upper-elite class and sold the footage to the highest bidders (it's unclear whether it was useful intelligence on those tapes or...[[APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy something else]]). Regardless, she outsmarted some actual surveillance experts and was recruited afterwards.
* DeadpanSnarker
* FriendlySniper: To counter Spectre, she's a lot more upbeat. It's even in her name.
* FunPersonified
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit features this, which is odd, considering the US Military doesn't allow that in real life.

[[folder: Command]]
-->''"There's more than just the common cold going around down there."''

* BigDamnHeroes:
-->'''Spec Ops Command''': ECHO SIX: A Paracelsus Rail Gun is arriving in 3...2...1...
-->*Cue [[{{BFG}} super-massive 15 foot tall laser cannon]] [[DynamicEntry smashing through the roof]]*
* BenevolentBoss: Compared to USS command, who's a cruel, malicious lunatic, he's quite affectionate towards his team and also helps them rather than spur them on with threats of death.
* BigGood: He's the main driving force behind the Spec Ops missions to rescue survivors caught in the infected zone that is now Raccoon City.
* DeepSouth: Judging from his accent
* MissionControl
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In stark contrast to USS command, Spec Ops mission control works with the team and is willing to bend mission objectives if it means saving a few lives.
* SouthernFriedGenius: He handles all the intel and is quick with the mission directives. All with a soothing southern accent.
