Umbrella Security Service

     In General

"Who do we kill next?"
Role: Recon

    Vladimir Bodrovski (SPECTRE) 
"I can see... everything..."
Role: Surveillance
  • Co-Dragons: With Vector.
  • Cold Sniper
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual: 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.
  • No Party Like a Donner Party: 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."
  • Sinister Surveillance
  • Verbal Tic: Speaks with frequent mid-sentence...pauses. Even when they don't make...much sense. 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.

    Hector Hivers (BELTWAY) 
"This was supposed to be fun!"
Role: Demolition

    Michaela Schneider (BERTHA) 
"This will only hurt a moment!"
Role: Medic

    Christine Yamata (FOUR EYES) 
"This is all so fascinating..."
Role: Field Scientist

    Karena Les Proux (LUPO) 
"We take our chances."
Role: Assault
  • An Axe to Grind
  • Big Bad:
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Killed her abusive husband for trying to harm their children.
  • Mama Bear: 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.
  • Meaningful Name: her name means "wolf" in Italian.
  • A Mother To Her Men
  • Name's the Same: 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.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Holds no particular loyalty to Umbrella, and only fights for them to support her family.
  • Team Mom
  • Token Good Teammate: At least, less mentally unstable than the other USS soldiers.

"Government forces have already entered the area. Do not let them secure evidence!"

Government Spec Ops / Echo 6

     In General

  • Action Survivor: 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 hail of bullets you're likely pumping out renders this trope all but invisible.
  • Distaff Counterpart: 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.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Unlike the USS Squad, nobody on the Spec Ops team is wearing face masks or helmets.
  • Miles to Go Before I Sleep: 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.

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

  • The Ace: He's been a soldier so long, he has experience with just about any weapon and the know-how to handle any combat situation.

     Erez Morris (HARLEY) 
"I don't get paid enough for this."
Role: Medic

     Lawrence Kimbala (SHONA) 
"Move quickly; they are vulnerable!"
Role: Field Scientist

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

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

  • Injun Country: 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.
  • Knife Nut: In the Triple Impact Trailer, she stabs the hell out of a Licker.
    • Does Not Like Guns: 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.
  • The Perfectionist: Possibly as a result of growing up in harsh conditions, she is always keeping her skills sharp.

     Sienna Fowler (PARTY GIRL) 
"Some party this turned out to be."
Role: Surveillance
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit features this, which is odd, considering the US Military doesn't allow that in real life.
  • Candid Camera Prank: 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...something else). Regardless, she outsmarted some actual surveillance experts and was recruited afterwards.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Friendly Sniper: To counter Spectre, she's a lot more upbeat. It's even in her name.
  • Fun Personified

"There's more than just the common cold going around down there."

  • Big Damn Heroes: At the end of The Places We're Meant To Die, Echo Six find themselves facing multiple Tyrants (which will transform to Super Tyrants once they're damaged enough). Spec Ops Command promptly sends in the big guns.
    Spec Ops Command: ECHO SIX: A Paracelsus Rail Gun is arriving in 3...2...1...
  • Benevolent Boss: 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.
  • Big Good: He's the main driving force behind the Spec Ops missions to rescue survivors caught in the infected zone that is now Raccoon City.
  • Deep South: Judging from his accent
  • Mission Control
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: 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.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: He handles all the intel and is quick with the mission directives. All with a soothing southern accent.

How well does it match the trope?
