Federal Bioterrorism Commission (F.B.C.)
- Affably Evil: He is unfailingly polite and composed, if in a condescending way. Even when he is publicly exposed as the mastermind behind the Terragrigia Panic, Lansdale remained as calm and condescending as ever.
- Big Bad: All the events of the game were either arranged by him or part of an attempt to expose his corruption.
- Engineered Heroics: He supplied Veltro with the T-Abyss virus and the means to disperse it so that he could publicly contain the incident and take down Veltro, consolidating his own power by proving his F.B.C. useful and necessary.
- First-Name Basis: For some reason everyone seems to treat his first name as his last name; for example, on multiple occasions he is referred to as "General Morgan" rather than "General Lansdale"; this is done in an otherwise formal manner. He is also referred to throughout the game as Morgan rather than Lansdale. It might be a symptom of the series' Japanese roots (where the surname precedes the given name), except this isn't done for any other characters.
- Headbutting Heroes: Butts heads with B.S.A.A. director Clive O'Brien over jurisdiction and methods, though it's more because he considers the B.S.A.A. a threat to his power and O'Brien rightly suspects his involvement in the Terragrigia Panic.
- Hypocrite: He claims that his actions will stop bioterrorists from causing more needless deaths in the future despite collaborating with bioterrorists himself in the first place and destroying Terragrigia with survivors still on the island. That's not even getting to his willingness to destroy the Queen Zenobia, which would unleash the T-Abyss virus and infect a fifth of the world's oceans, just to get rid of a couple of B.S.A.A. agents, potentially causing further needless deaths.
- Interim Villain: Zigzagged. While Resident Evil: Revelations came out after Weskers death, it chronologically takes place in between 4 and 5. And like Saddler before him, Morgan has no ties to either Wesker or Umbrella
- It's All About Me: At the end of the day, Lansdale wanted whole world to revolve around him. Everyone around him was either an expendable pawn or an obstacle to be removed. The threat of bioterrorism was simply a tool for Lansdale to exercise his power, the only thing he truly valued. When he is arrested, Lansdale's final act was to claim that his arrest will be O'Brien's biggest mistake, arrogantly implying that the world will be worse off for his absence.
- Jerkass: In his first appearance, he's warned by O'Brien that his heavy-handed tactics will end up creating more terrorists than they stop. His reply is to essentially quip that's a good thing, as it means he'll have indefinite job security. Somewhat Truth in Television, as certain individuals in the same occupation have been criticized for off-the-cuff remarks expressing the same sentiment.
- Mole in Charge: And with his arrest, the F.B.C. dissolves and is mostly absorbed into the B.S.A.A.
- Non-Action Big Bad: Aside from Oswell E. Spencer, Lansdale is the only antagonist that can never be fought wether be it mutated or normal.
- Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: See Engineered Heroics and Hypocrite right above.
- Obviously Evil: From the moment you first see him in person, Lansdale is a Jerkass with a voice like a Captain Planet villain. It's pretty clear he's not to be trusted. This is even lampshaded by Parker and Jessica in the same level.
- Took A Short Cut: During the downfall of Terragrigia, Lansdale, Raymond, and O'Brian take a safe alternate route to the rooftop chopper evac while Parker and Jessica are forced to fight their way through a skyscraper filled with rampaging Hunters.
- Villain Has a Point: Despite causing the Terragrigia Panic largely for his own self-interests, Lansdale did help to raise global awareness about the dangers of bioterrorism. Outbreaks that happened before the Panic, including the Raccoon City Incident, were largely concealed from the public eye by the Umbrella Corporation and the U.S. Government, which had its own secret bioweapon deals with Umbrella in the past. As a result, the F.B.C., the B.S.A.A. and other anti-bioterror groups were woefully underequipped to handle B.O.W.s and related incidents. The Terragrigia Panic served as a wake-up call to the world's governments and businesses, who then decided to grant the necessary funding and resources to those who fight against bioterrorism. O'Brien concedes this point, but decides that this is still not enough to excuse Lansdale's crimes.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After manipulating Il Veltro into destroying Terragrigia, Lansdale arranges for the terrorists to be wiped out to cover up their ties to him.
Voiced by: Kirk Thornton
Jill's partner in Revelations and a relatively new BSAA agent. The year before joining the BSAA, he was a member of the Federal Bioterrorism Commission, where he got to witness the Terragrigia Panic first hand with his partner Jessica.
- Acrofatic: Mostly only his face is round, since his build is pretty much like Chris'.
- An Axe to Grind: Carries an axe as his melee weapon during his present day segment.
- Big Brother Mentor: He was rather protective of Vester during the Terragrigia Incident, but he also followed the theory that rookies need a bit of "towel-snapping" in order to grow up.
- Big Guy: Big, tough, and good in a fight.
- Call-Back: He calls Raymond "Cadet," which was Raymond's rank when they were coworkers during the Terragrigia Panic.
- Disney Death: Late in the game, he falls into a raging inferno, and it really seems as if he's died. Luckily, he survives the fall, and Raymond shows up to help him escape.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: A wetsuit.
- Expy: He was designed to resemble Barry Burton from the first game.
- Gentle Giant: A big bear of a man who's quite friendly and moral.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Subverted, when Jill and Chris are helping him after he was shot by the traitor Jessica, a part of the platform collapses and he allows himself to fall, not wanting to slow down their escape. However, it's revealed that he survived his fall and escaped the ship, thanks in part to help from Raymond.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: He swears much more than the other characters in Revelations.
- Developers' Foresight: After Jessica shoots Raymond and Raymond appears to die, Parker will refuse to go back to the Casino and the Emergency Communications Room, saying he needs to do his job, due to needing to head up to the bridge. However, you can go back to the Solanarium despite that being farther off the path than the other two areas. Both areas he refuses to go to are places where Raymond is heavily associated with.
- Too Many Belts: He's wearing a wetsuit for the mission on the Zenobia and has all his equipment strapped onto him.

Chris's partner in Revelations. She was an agent in the Federal Bioterrorism Commission, but following the Terragrigia incident, she joined the BSAA "to be on the right side."
- Action Girl: Jessica is ostensibly as capable as any other BSAA agent in the series, and to her credit, she survives right alongside Parker in the levels set during the Terragrigia Panic. As Chris's partner, however, she does next to nothing, and is mostly remembered for the abbreviated wetsuit she puts on when Chris's game shifts to the Zenobia.
- Ambiguously Brown: Jessica appears to be mixed race, but her last name is East Indian.
- Combat Stilettos: She wore high heels to go on a mission that would involve mountain climbing.
- Flirting Under Fire: She's capable of keeping up a breezy, vaguely flirtatious dialogue with Parker while their position is being swarmed by Hunters, and she does everything short of throwing herself at Chris while they're investigating hostile territory swarming with BOWs. Though she does literally throw herself at him at one point near the endgame.
- Friendly Sniper: Carries a large rifle in the current-day missions with Chris. Turns out that she isn't so friendly.
- Karma Houdini: In a radical departure from the series's previous plot conventions, Jessica manages to pull off a heel turn, yet also manages to survive the events of the game and hasn't been seen or heard from since.
- Ms. Fanservice: Jessica's wetsuit is missing its entire right leg, which is also the leg she uses for her heel-drop in Raid Mode. In the promotional art for the home-console rerelease of Revelations, she's posing in the wetsuit with her ass out.
- The Mole: It turns out she's actually working for the Global Pharmeceudical Consortium along with Vester. She's given a sample of T-Abyss by him in a post-credits scene.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: A significant portion of "Jessica's Report" has her quietly fangirling about Chris, and she spends a large part of the game trying to get his attention. With the revelation that she was The Mole all along, it's unlikely she's as ditzy as she first comes across.
- Stylish Protection Gear: Jessica's winter gear is a Russian-style fur hat and fur trimmed coat.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: In the scene in the mountains, Jessica is wearing fur hat, fur jacket, fur boots, but short shorts over purple tights. She complains of the cold, and Chris tells her "You should have worn your thermal underwear."

A member of the FBC also present on the Zenobia along with Parker and Jill in Revelations. Another survivor of the Terragrigia Panic. Boarded the Queen Zenobia with his partner Rachael but they become separated in an attempt to restore power to the vessel. She is ultimately claimed by the T-Abyss Virus.
- Affectionate Nickname: Parker still calls him "Cadet."
- Agent Peacock: Not a straight example of this, but he's more effeminate-looking than the rest of the male cast.
- Ambiguously Evil: His first scene in the game makes him look like an antagonist, but he spends most of his screentime as an ally. He seems to be a good guy by the end of the game, but The Stinger just makes it even more ambiguous.
- What also makes it more ambiguous is the file labeled "Mysterious Journal." If you backtrack to where the Chris dummy was later in the game, you can read it. This puts him at roughly the same ambiguity as Ada Wong, both acting as spies and being on who knows what side, but wanting to end bioterrorism all the same.
- Dead Partner: Rachael, but he's not aware of this when he first mentions her.
- Faking the Dead: Jessica shoots him while he's masquerading as Veltro and he pretends to die so he can confront her himself.
- I Can Still Fight!: Insists this, even as Parker and Jessica are escorting him to safety from a slew of Hunters.
- The Mole: Employed by O'Brian to be his informant within the FBC, as part of a plan to reveal Lansdale's involvement with Veltro (which also happens to be the real reason why he's on the Zenobia). Unfortunately it turns out that he's also employed by the same company Jessica is, and provides her with a sample of T-Abyss.
- Morality Pet: Though he turns out to be The Mole for the same people Jessica is working for, the fact that he seems to genuinely care for Parker and protects his former comrade even when it doesn't benefit him makes him come across as more sympathetic.
- New Meat: With regard to the FBC anyway. He was with the US Military before joining them, but this didn't prove experience enough for taking on bioterrorism incidents, and he was subsequently badly injured during the Terragrigia Panic.
- Double Reverse Quadruple Agent: See The Mole.
Voiced by: Mari Ueda
Her surname comes from early marketing for the home console port, and was never revealed in the original 3DS version.
- Absolute Cleavage: To the point her promotional image was ridiculed for being "a pair of walking breasts".
- And I Must Scream: From the note you find, she was fully aware as she transformed.
- Ax-Crazy: Considering that she can still speak post-mutation, her openly expressing the desire to snack on you and occasional fits of Laughing Mad says a lot about her new mental state.
- Blinding Bangs: Her bangs cover her eyes entirely, leading to many a fan to joke that she might have survived had she been able to see. The Eye Scream entry below implies that they're covering her missing eye.
- Characterization Marches On: In the trailers and the main campaign, Rachael is depicted as an incompetent coward with a (rightfully) low opinion on her own survival skills. When she was brought back for the Updated Re-release's Raid Mode, her personality was changed so that she was much more enthusiastic and confident about her mission.Rachael: "Rachael on the scene!"
- Dead Partner: Though the revelation that Raymond was The Mole casts doubt on the degree of his grief.
- Dumb Blonde: In her brief appearance she wasted all her ammo, fell over, threw her gun away and (dumbest of all) she stood staring at the ooze yelling at it to stay back. You can guess how that ended. Downplayed when you read her log, which pretty much makes clear that she's suffering a complete breakdown and is unable to reason.
- Eye Scream: An Ooze latches its lamprey-like mouth to one of her eyes and rips it out.
- Faux Action Girl: Despite being a trained agent, Rachel is a coward who does nothing but run away. In Raid Mode, however...
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: It's a wetsuit.
- I'll Kill You!: Utters this in her boss battle.
- Implacable Woman: Like Nemesis, you can put her down, but nothing you can do seems to make her stay down for very long. Like Nemesis she even drops rare items for you if you manage to beat her when she attacks.
- I Shall Taunt You: While she stalks you through the halls, she won't shut up about her intentions to make you her dinner.
- It Can Think: After she mutates, she uses the air-vents to ambush you and will even retreat upon taking too much fire. She also manages to retain her capability for speech.Infected Rachel: "Found you."
- King Mook: She uses most of the same basic attacks as the regular Oozes do, but is a lot faster, more reactive, and able to use hit-and-run tactics, as well as being able to take a lot more damage.
- Lightning Bruiser: Post-mutation, she can shrug off a ton of damage and keep going, only retreating due to the pain, and can close distance between you and her a lot faster than the other Oozes.
- Magic Pants: Even after her transformation, the part of her suit that keeps her breasts from being exposed is still perfectly there. Even when almost all the rest of the suit has been shredded.
- Never Found the Body: After you dispatch her to retrieve her key, Rachael reappears to harass you if you stray into certain parts of the ship, with her final appearance coming in Episode 10, if you head to the bridge via the guest cabins instead of the promenade deck. She is never killed in a convincingly permanent way but it's presumed she was finally killed when the ship self-destructed.
- Plucky Girl: In Raid Mode, Rachael is surprisingly cheerful and competent, in contrast to her frightened and pessimistic nature in her short-lived role in the story.Rachael: Rachael, on the scene!
- Promoted to Playable: She wasn't playable in the original 3DS release. However, her abnormally large fanbase and the many requests to make her playable resulted in both her human and boss form being playable in the console ports.
- Recurring Boss: After you defeat her in Chapter 4, she'll continue to pop up periodically in various areas to chase you around for the rest of the game, acting somewhat like this game's version of Zombie Forester, Lisa Trevor, Mr. X, or Nemesis.
- Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Rachael's dopey outfit and weird haircut appear to be a deliberate attempt to evoke the appearance of a Japanese yurei upon her mutation.
- Stripperiffic: A tight black wetsuit unzipped to below her navel, fastened above and below her breasts with extra belts to keep it from shifting that last half inch to expose a nipple.
- Token Good Teammate: While inept and cowardly, shes the only named member of the FBC to be neither corrupt nor possess any ulterior motivations. Her aforementioned incompetence is honestly the worst thing you could say about her... at least prior to her infection that is.
- Voice of the Legion: Sports a very disturbing one post-mutation.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: The tight corridors you often encounter her in and her ability to soak quite a lot of shots before retreating means you'd better have gotten the hang of the dodge move before facing her if you don't want to burn through your entire supply of healing items.
At around the same time, O'Brian "lost contact" with Chris Redfield and Jessica, who were investigating a remote mountain airbase suspected of harboring Veltro terrorists. He dispatched Jill and Parker to their last known location: aboard the Queen Zenobia in the Mediterranean Sea.
- Batman Gambit: Orchestrates the return of Veltro using the abandoned ships, a disused airport and Vester, going as far to deceive his own agents to achieve this. It's all for the greater good to reveal Lansdale's involvement in Veltro.
- The Cameo: Sometime after the events of the game, he wrote a novel named "The Unveiled Abyss", which the Bakers are proud owners of.
- Easily Forgiven: Downplayed. Despite creating a façade of Veltro, a known terrorist group, and being responsible for the deaths of several agents posing as Veltro and for gravely endangering B.S.A.A. operatives with his deceptions, O'Brien seems to have gotten off easy with a resignation. Moreover, he still has the respect of his former B.S.A.A. colleagues. It's possible that O'Brien's deceptions have been forgiven in the light of Lansdale's greater crimes.
- Expy: Visually, he looks almost identical to Peter Falk's portrayal of Columbo.
- Turn in Your Badge: He willingly resigns from his position after the events of Revelations, but he remains with the B.S.A.A. as an advisor.
- Bash Brothers: With Keith. Despite their clashing personalities, the two are very effective when they join forces.
- Code Name: His call sign is the self-deprecating "Jackass".
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Brash, loud, angry, and kinda perverted, he's basically Joe Pesci with a badge and an assault rifle. He's still basically a decent guy, though.
- Lower-Deck Episode: You occasionally get to follow Quint and Keith's mission in Northern Europe during the main Campaign, with Quint acting as the AI companion.
- Mission Control: Briefly, to Jill and Parker in Episode 6 and 7.
- Otaku / The Movie Buff: Likes to make movie references fairly regularly.
- Techno Wizard: Invented the technology behind the Genesis Scanner (which is incorporated into his headset) and scavenges data with ease from a computer found in aircraft wreckage.
- Bash Brothers: With Quint. Keith mocks him relentlessly for his geekiness, but otherwise complements his skills perfectly.
- Black Dude Dies First: Averted. He survives unlike the other examples throughout the series.
- But Not Too Black: He's one of those dudes who doesn't have an immediately identifiable ethnicity. Best guess: he's half-black, half-white.
- Code Name: "Grinder", after his womanizing tendencies.
- Dual Wielding: He uses twin Kukris as his melee weapons.
- In the Hood: Wears a green hooded sweater under his fatigues, although it doesn't exactly make him look brooding or threatening.
- Kukris Are Kool: Uses two of 'em as his melee weaponry of choice.
- Lower-Deck Episode: Same as with Quint, but Keith is the playable character.
- Straight Man: He's this to the more goofy and outrageous Quint.
- Asshole Victim: He and the rest of Veltro may have been duped by Lansdale and subjected to a Face Worse Than Death, but Norman is still a fanatical bioterrorist with no qualms about unleashing outbreaks on cities filled with innocent men, women and children.
- Attack Its Weak Point: The fleshy orb on his back and the exposed heart are his main weaknesses. Shooting him in the head also works.
- Back from the Dead: Double-subverted. The masked "terrorist" running around the Zenobia isn't actually him, but he is still alive on the Dido at the bottom of the ocean.
- Badass Bookworm: He's a former academic turned terrorist leader, and has a lot of fight in him.
- Bald of Evil: He can be distinguished from the other gas mask-wearing Veltro members by his shining chrome dome. This is an early clue that the masked man running around causing mischief on the Queen Zenobia ain't him.
- Determinator: Managed to survive for a full year trapped at the bottom of the ocean and even fight off an FBC tactical team sent by Lansdale to tie up loose ends, even before injecting himself with T-Abyss in the hopes of one day being able to get revenge on Lansdale. Even when you finally confront him, he's still fighting his transformation and itching for revenge. He also has an outrageous amount of health when you fight him.
- Equal-Opportunity Evil: Il Veltro appears to be an Italian organization based on the names of most of its members, although there are at least a few Middle-Eastern members as well.
- Final Boss: While Morgan Lansdale is revealed to be the Big Bad of Revelations, Norman is the final obstacle that the heroes have to face in that game.
- Fluffy the Terrible: "Il Veltro" sounds like a reasonably sinister name for an organization, until you realize it's just Italian for "The Greyhound".
- Master of Illusion: Can fake a Teleport Spam by way of illusions, likely some form of viral Hallucinations on the people fighting him, with only the real one emitting purple smoke.
- Not Me This Time: Norman was responsible for the Terragrigia Incident in the game's backstory, but has nothing to do with any of the events of the game and is not the masked man running around the Zenobia; in fact he's been trapped at the bottom of the ocean aboard the destroyed wreck of the Dido the entire time.
- Properly Paranoid: Norman recorded his entire meeting with Lansdale on video, which included a briefcase of T-Abyss capsules being exchanged. Norman arranged this so that if Lansdale betrayed him, he would ensure Lansdale's downfall in turn.
- Say My Name: "Morgan!"
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: At least compared to Morgan. Believes the world has become decadent and sinful and is trying to provoke terror to make it realize its corruption rather than destroy or profit from it.
- Western Terrorists: Il Veltro is an apparently Italian terrorist group that opposes the construction of the floating city of Terragrigia. Their ideology isn't elaborated upon other than their belief that human civilization has become decadent and sinful and is in dire need of a rude awakening.
- Unwitting Pawn: Norman and Il Veltro were just a bunch of college radicals with lots of ideology but jack-all in terms of resources, until Lansdale came along and handed them 3 ships and an arsenal of bioweapons to attack Terragrigia with. Too bad for Norman he didn't realize that he would outlive his usefulness once the attack was finished.
An assortment of creatures created through infection with the T-Abyss virus.
- Abnormal Ammo: Tricorne Oozes shoot bone projectiles from an organic crossbow made from their left arms.
- Action Bomb: The Chunk Ooze explodes if the player comes near it, dying and taking anything else (including other enemies) out with him.
- And I Must Scream: Those infected that end up turning into Scagdeads like the Queen Zenobia's communications officer.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Malacoda. The end result of T-Abyss parasites infecting a whale. It's as bad as it sounds.
- Big Bad Wolf: Fenrirs are infected wolves and the game's version of the zombie dog.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: One of the most common mutations in T-Abyss B.O.W's. Pincer Oozes get two large bladed arms, Scagdeads gain an organic buzzsaw and Scarmigliones have a lance-like spear.
- Blob Monster: Globsters. Enormous slug-like masses of flesh that are easy to kill on land. Should you face them underwater, however...
- Carry a Big Stick: Normal Ooze have one or both their arms ending up in hard bony clubs they can swing at their targets.
- Chainsaw Good: The Scagdeads' left arm end up in a fleshy organic version of a buzzsaw.
- Fish People: T-Abyss infected are mutated into varieties of these.
- Invisible Monster: Farfarellos. Hunters given Chameleon Camouflage due to T-Abyss exposure.
- Jumping Fish: Ghiozzos, T-Abyss infected fish with More Teeth than the Osmond Family, can jump out of the water and lunge at the players on land. To a lesser extent, Sea Creepers jump out of water to ambush and grab their prey.
- Knightly Sword and Shield: Draghignazzos' arms end in growths that resemble swords and shields, and they attack with them like they were the real deal.
- Lamprey Mouth: All Oozes (except Chunk-types) have these. When they grab a player, they use them to drain their blood and other fluids.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Draghignazzo and Scarmiglione both have appendages that end up as durable shields that block all incoming gunfire.
- Madness Mantra: Unusual mutations allow the infected to retain the ability to speak, but since their minds have been destroyed by the virus, it results in this.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Sea Creepers.
- One-Hit Kill: Scagdeads, underwater Globsters, and Wall Blisters both have unblockable moves that kill the player if they grab them.
- Our Zombies Are Different: The typical T-Abyss human infectee becomes an Ooze, a slimy humanoid who feeds via a Lamprey Mouth to attach and suck out a victim's fluids. Can come in Normal, Pincer, Tricorne or Chunk varieties. Then there's those who have a 1 in 1000 chance of the infection being slower...
- Shark Man: Draghignazzos are sharks that have mutated into humnaoid monsters.
- Shield Bash: Draghignazzo smashes its shield arm at the BSAA agents during his initial appearance at the elevator. He keeps a minor version of this should Jill be within melee range in the formal boss battle.
- Shock and Awe: Damaging Scarmiglione's upper body too much could end up revealing an electrified tentacle that whips around to damage the player.
- Shout-Out: With the exception of the Oozes and Fenrirs, all major T-Abyss B.O.Ws are named after demons from The Divine Comedy.
- Smurfette Principle: Sea Creepers are all the end result of T-Abyss infection on human females. With the sole exception of Ooze!Rachael
- Taking You with Me: A Chunk Ooze's explosion will inflict massive damage on nearby targets. This includes, however, other B.O.W's as well.
- Version-Exclusive Content: Console versions gain an additional enemy: The Wall Blister. Round barnacle-shaped B.O.W's that will run straight towards the player and will inflict a One-Hit Kill if they aren't killed.
- Was Once a Man: Oozes, Scagdeads, Globsters and Sea Creepers were all human prior to T-Abyss infection.
