    Svetlana Belikova 

Voiced by: Wendee Lee, Eriko Kawasaki (Japanese)

The president of the Eastern Slav Republic.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She demonstrates this by easily defeating Ada Wong, who is often portrayed as one of the strongest and most calculating characters in Resident Evil.
  • Badass Boast:
    • She delivers one to Ada when the latter realizes that the rumors of her being a former instructor are true.
      Ada: So... it's true what they said about you being a former instructor.
      Svetlana: Former? I still am an instructor.
    • She also hands out a boast to Leon when he is holding her hostage during the standoff under the palace.
      Svetlana: Do you have any idea who you are pointing your gun at?
      Leon: Let me see... you're the Beekeeper?
      Svetlana: The Beekeeper?
      Leon: The person who released the Plaga.
      Svetlana: Just as I thought. You haven't a clue. I am the President... of this country.
  • Dark Action Girl: She has a military background, and the skills to take on Ada in a fight.
  • Faux Affably Evil: As expected for a political figure, she can conduct herself with charm and good manners when necessary. She's actually a stone-cold, ruthless dictator that will crush anyone she considers useless.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a painful-looking burn scar on her back.
  • Karma Houdini: Zig-Zagged: She gets away with her life, but she's deposed as President and her plans for entering the international stage are irrevocably ruined.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: She's totally not Yulia Tymoshenko. Really.
  • President Evil: A classic example of the Soviet type.
  • Punch Catch: Pulls one off with Ada during their fight.
  • Retired Badass: Formerly a combat instructor. Not so retired after all.
  • Tranquil Fury: While telling Leon exactly who and what she is. She's clearly angry, but maintains her cool while doing so.

    "Buddy" / Alexander "Sasha" Kozachenko 

Voiced by: Dave Wittenberg, Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese)

A resistance fighter aiming to take down the Eastern Slav Republic's government by any means necessary.
  • Anti-Villain / Anti-Hero: Depending on your point of view, he is either a Type III Anti-Villain or Type IV Anti-Hero.
  • Expy: He's an uncanny resemblance to Ark Thompson, the hero from Resident Evil Survivor.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Downplayed. Word of God says that he and Leon do not become friends exactly, but they do start to understand each other's point of view.
  • Life-or-Limb Decision: He lets Leon shoot him to kill the parasite taking over his body, leaving him paralyzed.
  • Minion Master: Purposely infests himself with a Plaga Queen to gain control of the Lickers for his assault on the Presidential Palace.
  • Start of Darkness: His rage at the government stems from when they blew up the school where he was a teacher along with his fiance Irina, killing her and his students, and claimed the school had been a front for the rebels. He joined the revolution soon after.


Voiced by: Val Tasso, Shintaro Ohata (Japanese)

A resistance fighter and friend of Buddy's.
  • Big Fun: 99% of his dialogue is comedy gold; and has a bit of a paunch from all the junk food he eats.
  • Eagleland: JD is openly fascinated with America, with an idealized view of the country born from its pop culture and junk food.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: He's in it for his friend, Buddy.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: He's an upbeat and funny guy, in comparison to the grim dealings going on around him.
  • Resist the Beast: He resists plaga infestation long enough to tell Buddy that he only joined the revolution because he wanted to "have fun with you and my friends."
  • Tragic Monster: Infected with a Plagas, and barely able to maintain control long enough to talk to Buddy one last time.
  • Your Head A-Splode: And get replaced with a Plaga monster

How well does it match the trope?
