Introduced in [REC]

     Ángela Vidal 
Portrayed by: Manuela Velasco

The leading character of the franchise appearing in three of the four movies, Angela is the sympathetic hostess of Mientras Usted Duerme ("While you are asleep"), a TV reality show about people working night jobs. While shooting an episode following a fire squad in Barcelona, she ends up quarantined with her cameraman Pablo in an appartment building overtaken by a terrifying virus.


  • Action Girl: Slips into this at the end of the second movie, right before you discover she is actually possessed by the demon that possessed Medeiros.
  • Alone with the Psycho: Left alone, in the dark, with the Medeiros girl at the end of the first movie.
  • Alternate Identity Amnesia: Ángela forgets she was ever possessed by the demon once it leaves her body. It takes finding and recovering the footage for anyone to realize she was once the carrier.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Ángela has become the new host of the demon that possessed Medeiros, making her the lead carrier for the demonic plague. And she's now free to infect the entire world.
  • Anti-Hero: Ángela takes some downright ruthless measures in her determination to escape in the fourth movie, including releasing the infected cook on her armed pursuers.
  • Audience Surrogate: In the first film, she discovers the firemen's routine, the building, and the outbreak at the same time as the audience.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: She wished the firemen got a call that night and they could film it. Well...
  • Berserk Button: Don't touch the fucking camera! Ángela does not like people trying to mess with it.
  • Broken Bird: Ángela is far more aggressive and brutal in the fourth movie. Given what she's been through, it's hard to blame her.
  • Casting Gag/Cast the Expert: Velasco was a real TV hostess at the time the first movie was produced. Though she had played bit parts in movies and TV series before, this film solidified her as a leading actress.
  • Celebrity Survivor: In-universe. Being a TV hostess, however unknown, she's the most famous person in the building.
  • Deadline News: A local TV reporter, unwittingly chronicling a zombie outbreak from the front line. Ultimately subverted as she's revealed to have survived in the second film, and ends surviving all movies she's in.
  • Fan Disservice:
    • The first film ends with Ángela and her generous cleavage looking at the camera. It's a sequence shot in night vision and completely, utterly terrifying.
    • At the end of the second film, a possessed Ángela straddles Owen after beating the shit out of him, and mocks him before delivering the final blow.
  • Final Girl: Of every film she appears in. By the second film she's carrying some obvious Plot Armor.
  • From Dress to Dressing: She takes off both her jacket and pink shirt so it can be used to tend Vicente.
  • Freak Out: Ángela has two meltdowns in the film. The first after the infected escape the building and force the survivors to take refuge in César's apartment, she goes off after hearing him say that the government will evacuate them, because she thinks they won't. The second happens when she wrongly believes that the Colombian girl bit her.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wears them in the first movie before the real action starts to emphasize her innocence.
  • Hysterical Woman: In addition to the Freak Out, she spends much of the movie screaming Pablo's name or yelling at Sergio for telling them to stop filming.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Spends almost three movies in a white tanktop after giving her jacket to the wounded Vicente.
  • Ms. Exposition: Ángela, being a journalist, is lured to explain everything that we see to the camera.
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: She badmouths the firemens chief behind his back and can be rather unpolite to Pablo at times.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this when she makes the connection between Jennifer's story of her sick dog, Max, and the health inspector's story about the infected dog who became violent...
  • Plot Armor: The series takes increasing pains to keep her alive and returning for three of the four films in direct continuity, which she survives.
  • Precision F-Strike: The meme-inducing line "Pablo, tape everything for your fucking mother's sake" (rendered "Tape fucking everything" in the subs).
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: The second movie follows right from the end of the first, revealing that her apparent death wasn't so because the Medeiros Girl didn't want to kill her.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: In the fourth film she strips to her tank top before grabbing an axe to defend herself
  • Tank-Top Tomboy: She wears a white tank top in all three films she appears.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Has her hair tied on a ponytail in the fourth film.
  • Throw It In!: Her bump into the camera (which momentarily glitches the sound), and her panicked search for the correct key to enter one of the apartments while the infected are rushing, were not scripted.

     Pablo Luque 
Portrayed by: Pablo Rosso, Javier Coromina (voice)

Pablo is Angela Vidal's cameraman who ends up quarantined in the building with her after following a couple of firemen there.


  • Camera Abuse: Pablo is both the only camera in the first film and a survivor running for his life, so this is a given.
  • Cast the Expert/Casting Gag/Descended Creator: Pablo Rosso is the real cinematographer of the [REC] films and a real cameraman. His part in the first film is his first acting credit.
  • The Danza: Shares first name with the actor.
  • The Faceless: Given that he's the one behind the camera. Even after he's killed, we only see a bit of his back and shoulder. His face was finally shown shown in promotional material for the second film.
  • The Lancer: Ángela's loyal and protective second to the end of the first film.
  • The Other Darrin: Played by an uncredited extra in [REC]2, where Pablo plays the GEO Rosso.
  • The Watson: Serves both as the audience's eye and someone for Ángela to talk to when all others are... let's say unavailable.

     Manu 
Portrayed by: Ferran Terraza

One of two firemen dispatched to help in a domestic disturbance call, ending trapped in the building when it is quarantined.


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: When Ángela and Pablo exit the upper floor, they call for Manu, their last ally left, only to discover that he has zombified offscreen. This is the moment it becomes hopeless for both characters, as Manu and the rest of the zombies are blocking their way out of the building, and they barely make it back in the apartment before Sergio's zombie gets them.
  • Bald of Awesome: Manu is bald and also the most physically imposing and battleready of the survivors.
  • Blood from the Mouth: There is blood dripping from his mouth when he is revealed to have turned into a zombie.
  • The Big Guy: The biggest muscle of the survivors group.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When told that Ángela's show is called "While you are asleep", he snaps "So who watches then?"
  • Drop the Hammer: He uses a fireman's sledgehammer to hit door and infected alike. And keeps using it after being zombified.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Despite butting heads with the Police and the younger officer Sergio in particular, they bond to some degree during the crisis, with Manu even consoling him when he's forced to shoot Mrs. Izquierdo in self-defense. You may even see them chasing Ángela and Pablo after being zombified as a weird version of Together in Death.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: He also uses them to keep the infected at bay, when he can't reach the hammer.
  • Heroic Sacrifice/Senseless Sacrifice: He refuses to enter Guillem's apartment, telling Ángela and Pablo that he will watch outside. In the dark. Some fans believe that he knew he was infected and was buying them time, but it's not confirmed onscreen.
  • I Choose to Stay: His last words in the film are literally "I stay here".
  • Interservice Rivalry: He butts heads with the police officers almost as soon as he arrives in the building.
  • Large and in Charge: The tallest character in the first film and a natural leader who all but takes charge after Vicente is wounded.
  • Lethally Stupid: For all he's helpful in other moments, it was pretty stupid to tell Álex to stay behind with Mrs. Izquierdo after she bit a police officer in the neck by surprise. And at the end he chooses to stay out of the apartment and in the dark, instead of using the apartment's door as a barrier with the infected. However, this can be excused if it's assumed that he was already infected, knew, and wanted to protect Ángela and Pablo from himself.
  • Neck Snap: Does it to the infected Asian man.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: A lot of viewers get irate when he kicks the bucket.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Presumably, his first name is Manuel. His last name is unknown.
  • Only Sane Man: Faults aside, he does not fall into panic and keeps a rational position most of the time.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Unlike Sergio, he does not accept the outside's order to quarantine and immediately joins the residents in trying to find a way out.
  • Throw It In!: His ankle injury was not scripted.

     Sergio 
Portrayed by: Jorge-Yamam Serrano

The younger half of a police patrol come to investigate the same disturbance as the firemen accompanying the TV crew.


  • Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop/Police Are Useless: Let's say... he screws up a lot during the fateful night.
  • The Chains of Commanding: He does try, but the night is not easy, and his older partner's premature death forces him into a position of authority he's clearly not used to have.
  • Field Promotion: Vicente's premature departure forces Sergio to step in his place.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Despite clashing several times, he bonds to an extent with Manu.
  • Interservice Rivalry: With the Fire Department.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He demands Pablo to stop working, points a gun at a crowd in order to keep them from a window, and essentially leaves Guillem and Mari Carmen to die by imprisoning them with the infected. However, he's also shaken when he's forced to shoot Mrs. Izquierdo in self-defense and endangers himself while trying to reason with Jennifer instead of treating her like every other infected.
  • Killing in Self-Defense: He thinks he did this when he's forced to shoot Mrs. Izquierdo in self-defence, but her new self is tougher than that.
  • Lethally Stupid: He runs after the infected Jennifer, leaving her handcuffed mother to be Eaten Alive by zombies. Then he tries to sweettalk her, despite being obviously gone, and turns his back on her.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Almost has a nervous breakdown over having to shoot Mrs. Izquierdo in self-defense.
  • Old Cop, Young Cop: Young cop to Vicente's old cop. He even gets credited as such (with Vicente being bizarrely credited as "adult" cop).
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: He won't point his gun at children.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: To everyone else, he does point his gun when he wants them to step aside from a window in the quarantined building and stop trying to leave it.

     Álex 
Portrayed by: David Vert

The other half of the firemen accompanied by the TV crew for the night.


  • Alone with the Psycho: Left behind to watch Mrs. Izquierdo alone after she attacks Vicente. Unsurprising it doesn't end well.
  • Body Horror:
    • Gets an ugly impact wound in his face courtesy of Mrs. Izquierdo, which Guillem and Leandro later poke with syringes.
    • A Deleted Scene for [REC]2 shows him having become bloated, completely gray/purple, bald, and with black eyes.
  • Disney Villain Death: Mrs. Izquierdo throws him over the staircase's railway after attacking him.
  • Sacrificial Lion: His fall from the stairs is the moment the audience knows that all bets are off in the movie.

     Vicente 
Portrayed by: Vicente Gil

Sergio's partner in the local police department.


  • The Danza: Shares first name with his actor.
  • False Friend: Insults Mrs. Izquierdo while trying to confraternize with her.
    "What's the fucking old woman's name? Conchita? Conchita...!"
  • Old Cop, Young Cop: Old cop to Sergio's young cop.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He seems to drop profanity every third sentence.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He is the first person attacked by an infected, almost as soon as the TV crew arrives.
  • Zombie Infectee: Becomes one after being attacked by Mrs. Izquierdo and the government quarantines the building. Once turned, he kills Guillem and Mari Carmen.

     Conchita Izquierdo 
Portrayed by: Martha Carbonell

An elderly woman living in one of the building's apartments. Her neighbors call police and the firemen after they hear her yelling crazily in the night.


  • Acrofatic: As a result of the infection, the portly Mrs. Izquierdo is capable of tirelessly running and sometimes apparent Offscreen Teleportation.
  • Catharsis Factor: She's such a Jump Scare for so long that audiences cheer when Manu hits her with the hammer in the face. Not that this can stop her for long.
  • Crazy Cat Lady: Said to live alone with her cats, though none is ever seen in her apartment or the building.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Downplayed. She spends her entire time in the franchise dressed in a nightgown.
  • Hell Is That Sound: All the infected scream, but none for so long as her.
  • Last-Name Basis: Everyone calls her Mrs. Izquierdo, except when Vicente uses "Conchita" when he's trying to get her to cooperate.
  • Made of Iron: Mrs. Izquierdo is INCREDIBLY sturdy. After she bites Vicente she is punched in the face by the firefighters, yet she gets back up for more, takes five shots to the chest and seemingly goes down, yet later on is up and running again, at this point she takes A SLEDGEHAMMER TO THE HEAD by Manu, and apparently she's down for good, but then in the sequel she is up AGAIN and attacks Larra, who manages to fire several rounds from his rifle into her chest. Just when you think she's finally down for good, less than 20 seconds later, she's up again and continuing her assault on Larra. DAMN!

     Guillem Marimon 
Portrayed by: Carlos Vicente

The president of the building's neighbors community, and a hospital intern.


  • Alone with the Psycho: Locked with the zombified Vicente and Álex, he does not last long.
  • I've Never Seen Anything Like This Before: Says this word for word about the outbreak.
  • The Medic: Closest Thing We Got in the quarantined building. Lasts only long enough to say that he has never seen anything like this, though.
  • Mr. Exposition: Gives exposition on the building, neighbors, and the disease.
  • Nice Guy: The one tenant who is always nice, doesn't swear, doesn't talk ill of others, and is always ready to help.
  • Zombie Infectee: Protests that he isn't infected as Leandro locks him in the workshop with the zombified Vicente and Álex. Doesn't last long either way.

     Elderly couple 
Portrayed by: María Teresa Ortega & Manuel Bronchud

The oldest residents in the building, occupying another apartment.


  • No Name Given: Called "Grandmother" and "Grandfather" in the credits.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: A consistent source of comedy in the original film is that they don't seem to completely grasp how dire the situation really is.
  • Throw It In!: The running gag with the woman randomly sweeping in the background was included because the actress would randomly sweep the scene between takes, even after she was told not to.
  • Unacceptable Targets/What Happened to the Mouse?: The directors clearly didn't want to show anything bad happening to them on the screen, but their survival is unlikely.

     Asian family 
Portrayed by: Akemi Goto, Chen Min Kao, & Daniel Trinh

An immigrant family in the building that doesn't speak Spanish, and the owners of the workshop in the ground floor.


  • An Aesop: Non-fluent immigrants are people too, scary situations are scary and dangerous to them as well, and they shouldn't be escapegoated when they happen.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: The man and woman appear zombified at once, without a clue of how or when it happened.
  • Demoted to Extra: The husband had scripted scenes and dialogue pre-infection but they were cut from the final film.
  • Eloquent in My Native Tongue: While struggling to speak Spanish with Angela, the woman fires a barrage in her own language to her husband.
  • Ethnic Menial Labor: Immigrants from a racial minority working textiles.
  • Funny Foreigner: The woman trying to explain the fireman's fall in her limited Spanish is one of the most remembered comedic moments of the original film.
  • The Ghost: The woman's father lives in the building with them but is never seen, as he is bedridden and is not brought downstairs.
  • Henpecked Husband: The woman yells at her husband to shut up when he tries to interfer in her interview.
  • Inferred Holocaust: Neither their child nor the woman's father have a good survival prospect with both of them zombified.
  • Interchangeable Asian Cultures: The credits call them Japanese and the woman speaks Japanese to her husband (also, she says her name is Mika Kobayashi in an extended scene). However, it is hard to believe that they were written as Japanese and this wasn't an Actor-Inspired Element, because the kind of Ethnic Menial Labor they exemplify is overhelmingly Chinese in Spain in real life, while Japanese are few and high-income. It was also more difficult to recruit Chinese or Chinese-descended actors in Spain when the movie came out than it is now.
  • Irony as She Is Cast: Shouldn't be surprising but the actors are fluent in Spanish in real life.
  • Neck Snap: Manu does one to the husband's zombie after losing his hammer.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The son's fate is not shown.

     Mari Carmen 
Portrayed by: Maria Lanau ([REC]), Anna García Cuartero ([REC]2)

A tenant with a young daughter, Jennifer.


  • Adult Fear: She's trapped in a building with her seven-year-old daughter during a demon-zombie outbreak. And the girl has tonsilitis.
  • Death Trap: Leandro has her handcuffed to the railing after her daughter spits blood on her face. Unfortunately, Sergio has the only key and he runs after the daughter. Then the infected in the workshop escape.
  • Eaten Alive: Invoked by Ángela after she sees Mari Carmen being biten by several infected while she is handcuffed to the railing. However, they leave her before her flesh gets too damaged.
  • Humiliation Conga: Her daughter is sick when the crisis happens, her husband can't support her because he was sealed out while going to buy medicine, the daughter is infected/possessed, spits blood on her face and runs away. This makes Leandro cuff her to the railing, which in turn makes her unable to run from the infected when they escape, and dies alone without her family. Even after she's zombified, she's still cuffed to the railing while the rest are free to move in the building, and when she escapes and kills her husband, she's disposed of by one of The Scrappy teenagers by forcing her to chow on a rocket, which then explodes in her face. What did she do to deserve all of that?
  • Hypocrite: After hearing that the Asian mother's father is sick, she blames him for the outbreak and speaks against bringing him down with other people, despite her own daughter being sick and with them.
  • Hysterical Woman: To a T. She's even credited as "Hysterical mother" in [REC] despite being named in the movie.
  • Implausible Deniability: Insists that her daughter only has tonsilitis after everyone else has a massive Oh, Crap! from realizing that the dog mentioned by Leandro was Jennifer's pet.
  • Jerkass: In addition to the rest, César claims in a deleted scene that she's a serial cheater.
  • Obnoxious Entitled Housewife: She does not miss a beat to make a disparaging comment, be it about her Henpecked Husband who works too much or anything else. She's also the first and only character to threaten lawsuits and going to the press.
  • The Other Darrin: One of the few actors playing residents that didn't return for [REC]2.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Briefly, as a result of zombifying while chained to the stairs railing. However, when the GEO enters the building she's no longer there.

     Jennifer 
Portrayed by: Claudia Silva

A seven-year-old resident and the daughter of Mari Carmen.


  • Black Eyes of Evil: Has these when she's found again after her transformation, which is noted by the characters.
  • Children Are Innocent: Possibly why it took the demon virus so long to turn her compared to everyone else.
  • Hell Is That Noise: The actress was cast based on her ability to scream, and it shows. Then the screams were enhanced with animal screams.
  • Ill Girl: She has a fever for most of the film that her mother attributes to tonsilitis.
  • It Can Think: Jennifer turning right when she did, as if to maximize the tenants' fears despite carrying the virus for so long, and then running to Mrs. Izquierdo's apartment instead of blindly attacking like other infected up to this point, pretty much settles that this is no ordinary virus.
  • Killer Rabbit: Once infected, she kills Sergio.
  • Littlest Cancer Patient: Subverted. She's a Zombie Infectee.
  • Rule of Drama: The other reason why it took her so long to turn, and why did she in that moment.
  • Zombie Infectee: It wasn't tonsilitis.

     César 
Portrayed by: Carlos Lasarte

An Argentinian hairstylist who lives alone in the building.


  • Accent Adaptation: A dub replaces his accent with a British one, in order to keep the hypocrisy of his hatred of immigrants.
  • Always Camp: A man who is a women's hairstylist.
  • Camp Gay: He wears a colorful ascot, jewelry, and a John Waters-esque pencil-thin mustache, and works as a women's hairstylist. In his short interview, he mentions that he used to live with his mother and now lives alone, makes catty comments about the Asian family, fusses about his appearance, and hits on the cameraman.
  • Death by Racism: The moment he starts making racist comments about the Asian family, you know he isn't going to last long. Although, he does outlast a lot of people, to be fair. Asian family included.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: One of the most remembered tenants despite his small role.
  • False Reassurance: After giving Leandro shelter in his home, he theorizes that even if the government intends to abandon the tenants to The Virus, they will come to save one of their own, and thus will have to evacuate the survivors sheltered with him. Unfortunately, Leandro is already infected.
  • Gossipy Hens: He seems willing to share negative things about all the neighbors.
  • Hope Spot: He tells Ángela, Pablo, and Manu that there might be a way out through the sewers but nobody is able to get there.
  • Hypocrite: He blames the Asian immigrants for the outbreak, despite being an immigrant himself.
  • Jerkass: In the extended interview scene, he claims to not conmingle with any other tenant because he sees all as "riffraff".
  • Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: Argentinians adore him. It helps that the Spanish stereotype of an arrogant, larger-than-life Argentinian is identical to the Argentinian stereotype of an arrogant, larger-than-life Porteño (which Lasarte is).
  • Momma's Boy: He shared the apartment "with Mom" until she died.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Despite being alerted that Leandro has been infected by the man himself, he stands right on the fence separating them and with his back turned, with predictable results.
  • Workaholic: In the extended interview, he claims to be all day at the hair salon and come home only late at night. However, the sequel changes the location of the hair salon to a room in his own apartment.
  • Write What You Know: Based on a real women's hairstylist known to a member of the crew.

     Colombian girl 
Portrayed by: Ana Isabel Velásquez

A tenant living alone in the apartment next to Mrs. Izquierdo.


  • Actor-Inspired Element: Velásquez is Colombian in reality.
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: It is very common to assume that she's the cleaning lady also mentioned by Guillem shortly after he mentions her, or that she worked for Mrs. Izquierdo, but there is no proof of either within the movie.
  • Descended Creator: Velásquez is the casting director of all movies in the [REC] series.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Despite being a tenant in the building, nobody gives too much thought to her and her death. In fact, it is just as typical to forget that she was in the movie, since she's always in the dark, under heavy monster makeup, or both.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Her charging screams, which include samples from pigs.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Never given a name, not even in supplementary material.

     Leandro 
Portrayed by: Ben Temple

An agent of the Ministry of Health that enters the quarantined building to assess the situation, take samples, and give further instructions.


  • Hazmat Suit: He enters the building wearing one, though he takes his mask off later.
  • Karmic Death: He imprisons Guillem and Mari Carmen based on his suspicion that they are Zombie Infectees, which causes them to die if they were not. Later on, he imprisons himself after he becomes a Zombie Infectee. Double points because one of the likeliest candidates to infect him is Guillem.
  • Mr. Exposition: Exposes the reason behind the building's quarantine and the unusual nature of the outbreak.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Consider the possibility that neither Guillem nor Carmen were really infected when he had them imprisoned. That would mean Leandro gave two people to the infection and caused the survivors to lose control of the building nearly all by himself.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Temple, who is American, keeps his accent (maybe slightly subdued, at most) despite playing someone working for the Spanish Ministry of Health. Now, it would be rather easy to handwave him as foreign talent given how limited the pool of world emerging epidemics experts is, but the supplementary material also gives him a Spanish name.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Attempts to become this by locking himself in a room after his infection.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Unlike other infected, he's never seen after [REC] despite being vaguely referenced in [REC]2 and [REC]4. Maybe he never escaped the fenced room where he locked himself in.
  • Zombie Infectee: Becomes one after the infected escape the workshop. While he tries to isolate himself, this leads to César's death.

     Tristana Medeiros 
Portrayed by: Javier Botet

The Patient Zero of the outbreak, a mysterious Portuguese girl turned into a hideous monster as a result of her long-time posession. She is locked in a room in the attic.


  • All for Nothing: Killing her does nothing, because she's transferred the original demon to Ángela.
  • Body Horror: In addition to being extremely deformed due to prolonged posession as a teenager, her chest is cut open and poorly sewn back on (though this is hard to see in the films).
  • Boom, Headshot!: How she dies in the second film.
  • Casting Gag: The images of Tristana in her previous form are of the niece of one of the directors.
  • Cross-Cast Role: Botet kept the role even as the character went from male to female. Not that there were other candidates...
  • Demonic Possession: She seems to have rose to some prominence and attracted the Vatican's attention because of claims of being possessed by a demon. They are right.
  • Drop the Hammer: Wields a claw hammer and uses it as a weapon.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Her life is the scariest thing in the movie, and that's saying something. Gang-raped at 13, possessed by a flesh-eating demon, kidnapped and experimented on by a priest, who keeps her naked and sealed in an attic of a foreign country under complete darkness, all while mutating into a hideously disfigured creature that is barely recognizable as human. Her death is nothing but liberating, moreso because she seemingly can't die of hunger and thirst.
  • Final Boss: Of the first film. Seems so in the second too, but the demon is revealed to have hopped on someone else by then.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Only wears a pair of loose underwear.
  • Hive Mind: The comics reveal that she can feel and control the other infected to a point.
  • Humanoid Abomination
  • I am a Humanitarian: A comic shows Father Albelda feeding her parts of a child. It is not clear why this is at all necessary.
  • It Can Think: Uses a hammer as weapon and looks for his victims in the dark, unlike the infected.
  • Lean and Mean/Noodle People: She's freakishly tall and emaciated.
  • Madwoman in the Attic: Barely recognizable as a woman, locked in the attic.
  • Suicide by Cop: Technically twice between both movies, but she recovers from both.
  • Patient Zero: Of the outbreak.
  • Rape as Backstory: A prequel comic reveals that she was possessed after she was gang-raped by priests in a Catholic convent.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: She's locked up in a room in the attic, with magical seals that prevent her from leaving or interacting with physical people except under pitch darkness.
  • Series Mascot: The only character that can be said to have appeared in all four movies, and one of the most remembered.
  • Technically Living Zombie: Unlike the others, she is easily killed with a rifle. However, by that point she was no longer possessed by the demon, so that might have facilitated things.
  • Was Once a Man: A young teenage girl in this case.

Introduced in [REC]2

     Owen 
Portrayed by: Jonathan Mellor
  • Boom, Headshot!: Owen kills one of the infected children this way. Towards the end, Ángela does the same to Medeiros. Shame Ángela was already possessed by this point.

     Fernández 
Portrayed by: Óscar Zafra

     Larra 
Portrayed by: Ariel Casas

     Martos 
Portrayed by: Alejandro Casaseca
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Martos is the first (and only) member of the team to get taken out early on, getting infected barely fifteen minutes in.

     Rosso 
Portrayed by: Pablo Rosso

Unsorted

     Clara 
Portrayed by: Leticia Dolera

     Guzman 
Portrayed by: Paco Manzanedo

  • The Reveal: Guzman is now the demon's host, having exited Ángela's body and possessing him in the apartment complex.

     Ortega 
Portrayed by: Mariano Venancio

  • Retirony: Captain Ortega keeps insisting it's his last voyage. It really, really is.
