Voiced by: Marcella Lentz-Pope (credited as Marcella Mazde)

The 20-year-old daughter of Barry Burton, Moira's first day at Terra Save is interrupted by a commando raid.


  • Action Survivor:
    • She lacks the combat training and experience Claire has. She still does what she can to help. This extends to Raid Mode, where she can only carry one gun until she reaches level 5, versus Claire and Gina's two and Barry's three.
    • Becomes a certified Action Girl in the end for surviving on the island for six months in the Good Ending.
  • Ascended Extra: She first appeared in a file in the first Resident Evil that could only be found if Barry died, and again in Barry's Epilogue file in Resident Evil 3.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: By the Good Ending, both Barry and Moira finally reconciled and things are much better between the two.
  • Badass Adorable: A cute punk chick who can kick ass with a crowbar. This is especially evident in "The Struggle", where she overcomes her hatred of guns and uses a pistol, a shotgun, and even a machine gun.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Her clothes get dirty and her stockings get ripped, but when she shows up in the Good Ending after living in the wilderness for six months, her hair and makeup are still immaculate.
  • Berserk Button: She has a strained relationship with her father. Just mentioning his name will at the very least put her in a very bad mood, on the other hand.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In her Urban Ninja DLC costume.
  • Bifauxnen: Has Boyish Short Hair and a slim boyish figure.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She gets her moment by saving Natalia from Alex.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She instantly befriends Natalia, and is nothing but gentle, friendly, and protective with her.
  • Boyish Short Hair: It looks cute on her, though.
  • Calling Parents by Their Name: Does this with "fucking Barry" all the time. In the good ending, since they've put their differences aside, Moira calls Barry by name yet again but immediately corrects herself, calling him "Dad".
  • Clothing Damage: In the Good Ending and the Struggle Extra Episode, her leggings are torn and her jacket's beat up.
  • Cool Big Sis: Becomes this to Natalia in the Good Ending.
  • Crowbar Combatant: Can use a crowbar to pry planks off doors, swing at monsters, and stab them when they're knocked down.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She definitely has her moments. "Well, fuck that place very much."
  • Does Not Like Guns: In sharp contrast to her Gun Nut father Barry. When little, Moira and Polly were playing in Barry's house, he forgot to lock the guns up, and she accidentally shot Polly. She gets better after having to kill mutated Neil to save Claire.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Her and Evgeny in The Struggle.
  • First Day from Hell: Getting attacked by terrorists and kidnapped is some way to start a new job.
  • Freudian Excuse: Right at the beginning of Claire's campaign, she tells Moira to find a gun. Moira vehemently refuses, but will at least use a crowbar and the flashlight. She doesn't like them because she accidentally shot her sister Polly with one of Barry's guns while they were playing with it years earlier.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: During their escape from Wesker's tower, Moira is caught under some rubble as the self-destruct sequence is nearly complete, and urges Claire to leave without her, as there's no way Claire would be able to save her in time. Fortunately, if you switched to Moira during the quick-time event at the end of the Neil boss fight, she survives.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Considering how abrasive she is with adults, it's quite a surprise to see her turn out to be surprisingly gentle with children.
    • She is also much more astute then you'd think, accurately pointing out that Neil's bracelet was always green despite the situation.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being pretty abrasive, she's very kind to Natalia, sacrifices herself to save Claire, and becomes Fire-Forged Friends with Evgeny. She also genuinely regrets her relationship with Barry going sour, and they work to mend it at the end of the game.
  • The Immune: Like Natalia, she seems to be part of the 2% of humans who are unresponsive to activated T-Phobos.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: Moira is definitely the most foul-mouthed character in the Resident Evil series prior to Ethan Winters taking a cup of this trope. She has a colorful use of language... to put it lightly.
    Moira: "I mean, what in a moist barrel of fucks is going on?!" "What in the cock did I just see?" "Fucking shit on a stick!"
  • Ms. Fanservice: Downplayed with her default outfit, which is modest up top but includes short shorts and stockings to emphasise her long legs. Played straight with her Urban Ninja costume, which shows a lot of skin.
  • Parental Substitute: While she can't stand him at first, Moira clearly comes to see Evgeny as a father figure during their six months together, seeing a lot of her own father Barry in him. When he locks himself away to die and sends her off on her own to escape, Moira's devastated.
  • Properly Paranoid: At one point, Moira notices that Neil's bracelet has stayed green the whole time, meaning that unlike everyone else, he hasn't entered the "anxious" stage, and also because he sent them to the factory, which was one of the Overseer's traps. She speculates that Neil may be a traitor, but Claire refuses to consider the possibility. Shortly afterwards, they see a surveillance video of Neil demanding a sample of Uroboros from the Overseer and discover a file listing the names of all the Terra Save members that were captured, proving that Neil did indeed sell Terra Save out to the Overseer.
  • Spice Up the Subtitles: An inverted example if you consider English to be the primary language for the game (as until Revelations 2 and the rerelease of the RE1 remake, English has been the only dub for the series.) She doesn't swear nearly as much in the Japanese dub. Her Catchphrase is "Mou Saiyaku !" or in English, "This is the worst !" She is nowhere as badmouthed as in English.
  • Stripperiffic: Her Urban Ninja DLC costume consists of a short unzipped jacket over a bikini top, along with short shorts and thighhighs
  • Support Party Member: Moira's job is to light up the surroundings and keep Claire alive, as she has no combat experience.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She's the tomboy to Claire's fashionable, romantically involved and emotional girly girl.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After overcoming her fear of firearms (if she shoots Neil) and fending for herself on the island for six months has her become an experienced and capable survivor. Her Big Damn Heroes moment (from above) saving Natalia from Alex clenches it.
  • Weakened by the Light: She can shine her flashlight in enemies' faces to stun them and give Claire an opportunity to attack.

    Neil Fisher 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6df6c23037c52a3f6ab418b45b53038f.png
Voiced by: Yuri Lowenthal

Claire and Moira's senior of Terra Save. He is a former subordinate of Morgan Lansdale and a member of the defunct FBC. He is working with Alex Wesker in exchange for a sample of the Uroboros virus so he can make enough terror attacks that the FBC will be resurrected. To this end, he's willing to sacrifice all of his employees.


  • Attack Its Weak Point: Like most Uroboros mutations, infected Neil's got a glowing orange weak spot that is revealed when he takes enough damage from heat.
  • Big Good: Terra Save is a global NGO which has done immense good worldwide. Horribly, horribly subverted.
  • Benevolent Boss: He comes across as calm and easy-going to his employees, and encourages Claire to help Moira fit into the group. Even though he's planning to use them all for his own ends, he still expresses guilt for doing so, but believes it's for the greater good. In his last sane words, before mutating, he warns Claire to get away from him.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Just after Pedro mutates, Neil shows up to save Claire and Moira.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: His actions are monstrous and in the service of fostering more B.O.W terror attacks.
  • Broken Pedestal: He becomes this to both Claire and Moira once they both learn that he was the one who set up the Terra Save workers to be captured by the Overseer. Claire becomes particularly upset because she had a slight crush on Neil before the incident.
  • Chewing the Scenery: Yuri Lowenthal begins to channel Liam O'Brien during his boss fight. His reaction after taking enough fire damage or light exposure is to yell at the top of his lungs, with all his might, "I'M BURNING UUUUUUUUUUUUP".
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: As the Uroboros mutates him, he goes completely insane and claims that Uroboros is not death, but power.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • His bracelet is always colored green, which indicates he has not once entered the 'anxious' stage of his mood ever since his capture, unlike many other characters the heroes come across. Turns out he's a traitor and has been working for the Overseer the entire time.
    • If one looks closely at Neil's bracelet when he's horrifically mutating they can see that it's still green, implying that it wasn't even a real bracelet to begin with.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: It's suggested that he's the one of the few examples of the Uroboros virus successfully bonding with someone, apparently being one of those few humans that Wesker believed to have the right genetic make-up to be "uplifted" by Uroboros infection rather than consumed completely, a fate that Word of God confirmed that even Wesker would have eventually be subject to himself had he survived his final fight with Chris and Sheva. As grotesque as Neil becomes, the Uroboros massively increases his muscle mass and grants him the usage of Combat Tentacles. He even retains most of his higher thinking as well though not to say he's entirely right in the head once he mutates.
  • The Mole: Years ago, he was one of many insiders secretly working for Morgan Lansdale, the head of the Federal Bioterrorism Commission. Neil later becomes this to the Overseer, watching over his Terra Save comrades as test subjects for the T-Phobos virus.
  • Monster Modesty: Even after hulking out, his pants remain intact enough to cover his crotch.
  • This Is Your Brain on Evil: After being injected with Uroboros. He initially pleads with Claire that he did what he thought was right, but becomes more and more deranged and Drunk on the Dark Side as he mutates and becomes a monstrosity.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: He wanted a sample of the Uroboros virus from Alex Wesker in exchange for selling out his coworkers in Terra Save. Alex "gives" it to him by shooting him with a sample of it, turning him into a monster and ruining his plans to revive the F.B.C. with said virus.
  • Transformation Trauma: Turns into a Tyrant-like monstrosity after the Overseer shoots him with a dart loaded with Uroboros.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Plans to become the next Morgan Lansdale. Just ends up being a pawn of the Overseer, and quickly outlives his usefulness.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: He truly believed in bringing order to the world through the fear of bioterrorism, which is why he was extremely loyal to Morgan Lansdale.
  • Villainous Legacy: He is this to Morgan Lansdale, who was arrested at the end of Resident Evil: Revelations. Neil has made the resurrection of the Federal Bioterrorism Commission his life's mission, resulting in him making a dangerous deal with the Overseer - in return for betraying his comrades in Terra Save, he would receive a sample of the Uroboros virus. Neil planned to cause a biohazard with this sample and use said biohazard as a reason to revive the F.B.C. However, the Overseer injected Neil with the virus sample instead, rendering his plans moot.
  • Walking Spoiler: While he is in the very first cutscene, almost all of his plot relevance is covered in spoilers.
  • Weakened by the Light: Possibly indicating he had a geniune T-Phobos infection before the Uroboros exposure, the best way to handle him is to use Moira's flashlight; concentrating the beam on him for a short period will cause him to overheat to the point his heart/core bursts out of his chest, allowing you to easily shoot it.
  • Weak to Fire: Like all Uroboros mutants, he does not like heat, so burning him is the best way to expose his core for attack.
  • We Can Rule Together: After mutating, he tries to convince Claire that it's not too late to help him.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He truly believes he's doing what's best for everyone by working for the Overseer, but appears to have no problems selling out his co-workers to be captured, tortured, and killed by the hands of the Overseer's experiments.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: His ultimate fate in the hands of the Overseer. Surprisingly, it doesn't actually take since he instead seemingly undergoes a non-lethal mutation and retains his sentience though his increased hostility towards Claire and Moira means he still gets put down anyway.

    Gina Foley 

A bespectacled woman who is an employee of Terra Save, who has also been taken to the island after the commando raid.


  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. As soon as Claire and Moira meets up with Gina who was being hunted down by an Afflicted, she is covered from head to toe in blood and deep wounds. She soon dies from her injuries.
  • Expy: Of Rachael Foley in the first Revelations game. She has a similar appearance and hairstyle, minus the Blinding Bangs and slightly less exaggerated sex appeal. Her death also echoes her counterpart's demise, dying just as the heroes first witness them being attacked by monsters.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Raid Mode gives players a good view of her not covered in blood, and she is gorgeous.
  • Mythology Gag: She shares the same surname as Rachael of the first Revelations game, meaning its very likely their related given the fact every other character in the series with the same surnames are. She also shares the same fate as her counterpart, dying on-screen just as soon as the heroes meet up with them.
  • Red Herring: Savvy players would expect to see Gina again in future episodes, but as a monster, just as her counterpart did in the first Revelations game. Turns out Gina is Killed Off for Real and never makes another appearance.
  • Sexy Spectacles: Is described as beautiful and intelligent on her profile picture.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Dies merely ten minutes in her first appearance of the game. She's only even given a name on screen after her death.

    Pedro Fernandez 

Introduced in Episode 2 as Claire and Moira meets up with the remaining survivors of Terra Save. Is described as a trained mechanical engineer.


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Turns into one due to how easily scared and panicked he got while being attacked by the Afflicted.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: If he survives to Barry and Natalia's chapter, he's covered in eyeballs which serve as his weakpoint.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Upon mutating, his gigantic form appears to have eye-like boils across his body.
  • Cowardly Lion: Compared to his companions he's most easily frightened by the events surrounding him, though he still tries his best to help the group. Too bad the virus injected into him during his capture ends up being amplified due to his increasing anxiety, resulting in his mutation.
  • Oh, Balls!
  • Shout-Out: One early version of Pedro seen in his unlockable concept art clearly resembles another Pedro.
  • This Is a Drill: Is seen using a portable mechanical drill, which is mainly used to pry open doors. Upon mutation due to the virus, he has enough strength to use it as a weapon against Claire and Moira.
  • Tragic Monster: Due to failing to control his fear, the virus grows strong enough to mutate him, causing him to unwillingly attack Claire and Moira. If the player decides to flee without mercy killing Pedro, then later Barry and Natalia will meet up with him later in an abandoned hotel, with the poor guy having wandered around the island for a good six-months still trapped in his mutated form. Fortunately he's then put down for good.

    Gabriel Chavez 
Voiced by: Sam Riegel

Introduced in Episode 2 as Claire and Moira meets up with the remaining survivors of Terra Save. Is described as a qualified vehicle mechanic.


  • Genius Bruiser: Is notably of larger build than his co-worker, and is very adept in vehicle engineering as seen by him rapidly repairing a rundown helicopter during a hoard invasion.
  • Hellish Copter: After getting his helicopter working, Gabriel dies when the Overseer screws with its controls remotely, causing it to plow into a building while the T-Phobos virus starts to activate in Gabe. Barry and Natalia eventually come across his charred corpse.

Voiced by: Gabriella Pastore (Credited as Gabrielle Pastore)

A mysterious child with unknown abilities, Natalia is Barry's partner in his missions, meeting him as soon as he sets foot in Zabytij. She is revealed to be a Terragrigia survivor, rescued by Neil during the Terragrigia Panic and eventually taken away by the Overseer to be a test subject.


  • Action Survivor: She is a child after all. Made more dramatic by the fact that she not only spent a lot of time on the island by herself prior to running into Claire and Barry, but she also survived the incident in Terragrigia as seen in the first Revelations game. However, she's a resourceful one; able to sense the monsters, crawl in tight spaces, handy with bricks, etc.
  • Aura Vision: Has the ability/sense to see the auras of monsters within the area. On certain ones she can also sense where their weak spot is, allowing Barry to kill them more easily.
  • Badass and Child Duo: The child to Barry's badass.
  • Blessed with Suck: Her inability to feel fear has made her the perfect candidate for Alex's plan.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • Survived the Terragrigia incident from the first Revelations game.
    • She is continually taunted and tormented near the end of Barry's campaign, including seeing her teddy bear mangled and impaled on a rock prior to the final boss fight.
    • The entire "Little Miss" DLC campaign is an attempt by Alex to do this, leading her through monster-infested areas and taunting her in an attempt to break her will.
    • She turns into Alex Wesker. This is outright shown in the Bad Ending and heavily implied in the Good Ending.
  • Creepy Child: She has shades of this. It goes Up to Eleven in the bad ending when she *becomes* Alex Wesker and kills the mutated version of Alex by ripping out her heart. Even in the good ending, it's implied that there's at least a little bit of Alex Wesker's consciousness in Natalia as she is seen reading from Kafka and smiles maliciously.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Her other self has a darker version of her current clothing.
  • Grand Theft Me: Happens to her in the Bad End and is heavily implied in the Good End, even.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Inverted in Barry and her's chapters: Barry is the shooter (being an adult), but Natalia can hit enemies with bricks. There is an Achievement for defeating twenty enemies as Natalia.
  • Happily Adopted: In the good ending.
  • The Immune: Like Moira, she seems to be part of the 2% of humans who are unresponsive to activated T-Phobos.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her parents were killed in the Terragrigia incident.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When she is under Alex's influence her eyes become red. They also are the colors of her other self's eyes as shown in the extra episode.
  • See the Invisible: A very crucial ability to have considering some of the monsters such as the Glasp are invisible to the naked eye.
  • Split Personality: Is given this by Alex's Grand Theft Me attempt. A second, Dark Natalia or can be seen with a black version of her outfit and blonde. The DLC is clear that this is a hallucination caused by Alex's personality.
  • Super Senses: Apparently, the virus she was infected with has given her this, giving her the Aura Vision and See the Invisible attributes explained above.
  • Support Party Member: She can't fight at all, beyond throwing bricks that do fairly low damage. However, she has the ability to find items in an area for Barry, is often necessary to unlock doors thanks to her ability to crawl through holes that are too small for him, can spot where the cores are in Revenants and Splashers, and see where Glasps are hiding.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Despite the sheer amount of monsters and tragic incidents she's lived through, she's surprisingly calm about all of it. This is exactly the reason why Alex Wesker is interested in her.

    The Overseer (MAJOR SPOILERS!) 
Click here to see Alex Wesker.
Voiced by: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (credited as Lucy Todd)

A mysterious woman who runs the island that Claire and Moira are trapped on. She also runs the Red Queen Alpha combat simulator in Raid Mode. Her real identity is Alex Wesker; formerly a trusted ally to Oswell E. Spencer and, after Albert Wesker's death in Resident Evil 5, the sole survivor of the Wesker children project. Her existence is revealed by files in Resident Evil 5's 'Lost in Nightmares'' DLC, where it's revealed she was conducting experiments for Spencer in the South Seas.

She appears in Resistance, the non-canon multiplayer mode of the Resident Evil 3 remake, as a playable Mastermind.


  • Ascended Extra: Originally mentioned in files from Resident Evil 5 DLC Lost in Nightmares.
  • Ax-Crazy: She is normally a very collected and devious mastermind but, after being revived by the T-Phobos virus, she becomes an absolutely unhinged abomination and shrieking madwoman with nothing on her mind aside from killing Natalia. Alex has also gone so insane that she starts believing the girl to be a copy of her.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Her main goal was to achieve immortality by imprinting her mind into a new body. Regardless of the ending, even though it's not quite as she predicted, she does succeed.
  • Big Bad: She's this for Revelations 2.
  • Body Backup Drive: This is her plan to achieve immortality: to transfer her consciousness in a new body. She chooses to do so on Natalia and actually succeeds, on both endings- fully shown in the Bad one but still heavily implied in the Good one.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Set up as this in Resident Evil 5, having disappeared off the face of the Earth with all of the research she'd been doing for Spencer. Now we know what she was up to.
  • Cloning Blues: She imprinted her mind into Natalia, and planned to commit suicide in her original body, allowing her consciousness to awake in Natalia and live on as a form of Legacy Immortality. Unfortunately for her, it was a Bungled Suicide thanks to the T-Phobos virus reviving her, and in the next six months she completely lost her grip on sanity as she became obsessed with killing her "copy".
  • Color-Coded Characters: White, in a stark contrast to Albert's black.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Her appearance is significantly different in Resistance, now looking like Scarlett Johansson.
  • Dark Action Girl: A monstrous version, but she still counts. She shows her stuff in Raid mode in her normal form.
  • Dark Messiah: She has "saved" the island, but only to use its residents as experiments to the T-Phobos virus.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Becomes this on Barry's timeline.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: She's very skilled with the piano. Fitting enough.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: An unlockable file suggests that, for all she has contempt towards Spencer, she was fond of her "brother", Albert Wesker; commissioning a family portrait of the two of them and mourning his death. Additionally, Stuart and her henchmen are devoted to the point of suicide towards her.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Will talk this way at times towards the other characters as a way to taunt them.
  • Evilutionary Biologist: According to Spencer's notes in Lost in Nightmares, The Overseer's experiments to find the secret of immortality required "thousands upon thousands" of test subjects. According to a note in Revelations 2, she fully intends to use bioweapons to create a new world, much like Spencer and her brother, Albert Wesker.
  • Expy: Half her role is basically an expanded upon version of Vincent Goldman's from the first Gun Survivor, with a substantial amount of Alexia Ashford thrown in as well.
  • Fan Disservice: You can see her boobs when she mutates herself with Uroboros. It doesn't help.
  • Genius Bruiser: Said to be the best and brightest of all the Wesker children, and eventually becomes a powerful abomination.
  • Grand Theft Me: A variant of this trope: She intended to live on in Natalia's younger body as part of her plans for immortality. The variation comes in that Alex Wesker always intended to commit suicide in order to kill off her original body, which would in turn cause her consciousness to awake inside Natalia as the new Alex Wesker. As outright shown in the Bad Ending and heavily implied in the Good Ending, she ends up succeeding.
  • Guide Dang It!: She's unlockable in Raid Mode, but requires beating the campaign and the Omega Raid stage in Raid Mode (which is at default set to very hard).
  • Hot Scientist: In particular, her redesign for the RE Engine in Resistance, not that she was particularly unattractive in her Revelations 2 design... pre-virus.
  • I Don't Want to Die: When she is about to shoot herself, she experiences extreme fear for her own life, causing her T-Phobos to mutate shortly before she killed herself anyway.
  • Immortality Seeker: Spencer gave her as much resources as she required to conduct her experiments to gain immortality. After she abandoned him, she continued working on it. Files in-game, and her own dialogue towards Natalia, suggest she's obsessed with gaining it.
  • Incurable Cough of Death
  • Laughing Mad: Post-mutation, she's prone to maniacal cackling.
  • Lemony Narrator: Serves as a narrator for Raid Mode, "encouraging" the player with odd quotes like "Run, my little hairball! Spin those wheels!".
  • Light Is Not Good: Her clothing is bright white and is one of the most evil villains.
  • Like Brother and Sister: She seemed to actually love her "brother", Albert Wesker, like a true sibling. Barry Burton took an immediate dislike to Alex once he learned about her connection to his treacherous former comrade in S.T.A.R.S., leading him to actually call Alex "She-Wesker".
  • Man-Eating Plant: In Resistance, her unique B.O.W. is a giant, man-eating plant called the Yateveo.
  • The Mole: While she was Spencer's favorite among the Wesker children and appeared loyal to him, she actually had been collaborating with her "brother", Albert Wesker, since he had abandoned Umbrella, and would eventually abandon Spencer after getting him to bankroll her immortality research.
  • Never My Fault: Averted. She has designed an experiment to transfer her mind to Natalia, which also required her to kill herself in her original body, but things went horribly wrong when she felt a moment of intense fear in the split second before she shot herself, triggering the virus in her body and reviving her as a monster. She does not fail to see the irony in her predicament, and admits in a note that she has no-one to blame but herself. However, unable to stand the thought of a second, 'normal' Alex existing, the original condemns Natalia as 'false' and makes it her new life's mission to kill her.
    • Amusingly, in Raid Mode, her dialogue for the "Sorry" emote is "It's not my fault."
  • Not Blood Siblings: As explained in files from Resident Evil 5, she is not genetically related to Albert Wesker.
  • Obviously Evil: Some natives from the Zabytij Island think she's evil from the moment she arrives, they're right.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Alex manages to corner Natalia and start strangling her, she temporarily awakens the second Alex inside the girl. The first Alex quickly realises her mistake and takes off screaming.
  • Older Than They Look: Normally, she is a case of Younger Than They Look since she looks like she's only in her late twenties or early thirties when she's actually in her fifties, but after her T-Phobos mutation, she resembles an old witch, with a part of her face looking old and shriveled and her body stuck in a hunchbacked position.
  • Parental Favoritism: Spencer's favorite of all the Wesker children.
  • Red Baron: The Overseer.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Since her gender was left ambiguous in Resident Evil 5, many fans thought she was a male.
  • Smug Snake: For all of her posturing, her work was a miserable failure and of questionable veracity to begin with. All she managed to do was get thousands of people killed and get killed herself. Possibly averted since it might be a case of The Bad Guy Wins.
  • Sore Loser: Gabe is able to fix an abandoned helicopter and prepares to evacuate the survivors out of the island they're trapped in. Alex considers such act to be "cheating" and decides to tamper with the controls and automatically advance Gabe's virus from the bracelet via remote. This causes Gabe to lose control and inadvertently crash the helicopter, killing him and rendering their evacuation plan all for naught.
    • Also, let's just say she didn't take it very well when she mutated and Natalia was still alive.
  • Spanner in the Works: Her plan was going along perfectly until something happened that she did not anticipate: she experienced a moment of pure fear right before she shot herself, which caused the T-Phobos virus in her body to revive her and turn her into a horrific monstrosity.
  • The Starscream: Like her "brother" she would eventually betray Spencer, after he funded her and provided test subjects in order to get a means of obtaining immortality for himself.
  • Statuesque Stunner: 5'10"
  • Villain with Good Publicity: She invested a fortune into upgrading and modernizing Zabytij Island's mining economy, which gained her a good number of admirers from the island's native populace. Only a handful of individuals, like Evgeny, were wary of her.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She lost it big time after she revived from her failed suicide and realized that there was a second version of herself still in existence.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: An overtly malevolent example.
  • Walking Spoiler: Just see how much of her section is covered out.
  • Wicked Cultured: Given her frequent quotations of Franz Kafka.
    • She is also a talented classical pianist as evidenced by her hauntingly beautiful rendition of Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem.
  • Wicked Witch: While her power comes from science rather than magic, her characterization seems heavily rooted in classic witch iconography, between her hag-like appearance post-mutation (especially when she's wearing her cloak) and her obsession over kidnapping a little girl and her little bear, too.

    Cipher 

A green wireframe model shown at the opening cutscene of the game's Raid Mode, it was created by the Overseer to test out the Red Queen Alpha program. In places like Japan where the Biohazard title is used, it's known as Anonymous.


  • Expy: Can be considered for Cycloid Gamma from the Street Fighter EX series.
  • Guide Dang It!: Players need 90 completion medals to unlock it. That means completing 90 missions by killing all enemies, at or below the level recommendation, without using herbs.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: When first unlocked, all its weapon slots are locked, and it has only one innate active skill (drawing enemies towards it). However, its one passive skill replaces its default knife with a Samurai Sword, which has more damage and reach.
  • The Blank: Doesn't have a face.

    Evgeny Rebic 

A retired miner and lifelong resident of Sejm Island who managed to avoid being infected by the T-Phobos virus. He briefly appears in Episode 3 first holding up Moira before dismissing her and Claire and demanding they leave the island, and later as a corpse that Barry and Natalia discover six months later. He's also a central character in the DLC episode The Struggle.


  • The Cassandra: He was one of the few, if not the only one, to feel that something was truly wrong about the Overseer. Unfortunately, most of the island locals, including his own daughter Irina, dismissed his concerns as the unfounded complaints of a Grumpy Old Man. Only when the gruesome evidence was right in front of her did Irina realize that her father had been right all along.
  • Cool Old Guy: Surviving on the island before and after the Overseer's reign certainly makes him this. Despite coughing, it doesn't slow him down.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Manages to survive on the island for at least six months between the two campaigns and god knows how long before that with nothing but an old Mosin-Nagant and his hunting knife and a stashed away TOZ-194M.
  • Despair Event Horizon: You first meet him in Claire's campaign. By the time Barry arrives six months later, he's been dead for some time. He loses his will to live after finding out his daughter died when playing Moira's sidestory campaign.
  • Determinator: Despite having a terminal disease eat away at him as well as killer mutants hunt him down throughout the island, he still pushes on and manages to survive a very long time. Sadly though, he loses the will to live and dies after finding a letter telling of Irina's true fate.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: He's heard coughing several times. It doesn't slow him down. He eventually succumbs to his disease in the end once he finds out Irina is dead for good, complete with Blood from the Mouth.
  • Jerkass with a Heart of Gold: acts hostile towards Claire and Moira during their first encounter, but he rescues Moira later on and nurses her back to health. Although he still acts all grouchy towards Moira, he eventually warms up and calls her "kroshka", an Affectionate Nickname he once called his daughter, Irina.
  • Irony: He constantly told Moira to "face reality" and buck up in the face of their situation, but he himself could not face the reality that his daughter Irina had died years ago at the Overseer's hands.
  • The Mentor: To Moira.
  • Properly Paranoid: Distrusted the Overseer when she came to the island. Turns out, he was right.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: When the Overseer first arrived on Sejm Island, he immediately distrusted her due to her being a rich capitalist. This was understandable, given that Evgeny lived during the height of Russia's Communist era, but this wasn't the reason why the Overseer shouldn't be trusted.
  • Social Darwinist: A lighter version of The Struggler: he helps Moira survive, but insists that she hunt her own food if she wants to eat.
  • Sole Survivor: He's the only original resident of the island still alive. He's still there because he isn't convinced his daughter Irina is dead, but loses all hope once he finds Irina's last letter in the mining facility.

    Stuart 

The Overseer's faithful servant, the game contains several unlockable files written by him. He apparently was in charge of her research staff and military forces.


  • Battle Butler: To a lesser extent as he's more in charge of the island's military forces which are all monsters by the time the game begins.
  • Driven to Suicide: While he was fanatically loyal to the Overseer and fully believed in her cause, he chose to "atone" by having the rest of the research staff killed off and hanging himself when it appeared she would succeed, in order to not distract her.
  • Posthumous Character: He wrote several of the game files. You can discover his body in Claire and Moira's chapter of Episode 3, having hung himself.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the Overseer.

    B.O.Ws 

An assortment of creatures are faced on Sejm Island, ranging from the subjects of the T-Phobos virus to a new breed of monsters created from Uroboros being applied to corpses already exposed to T-Phobos.


  • Abnormal Ammo: The T-Phobos/Uroboros monsters called Splashers throw huge, tumorous parasites full of acidic pus at their victims.
  • Action Bomb: The Sploders, bloated walking corpses that explode in close proximity, causing heavy damage and blinding their victims with pus.
  • Appendage Assimilation: Durgas are the more "traditional" Uroboros monsters, having assimilated multiple corpses together to become bizarre, walking tree-like horrors.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: It's much easier to kill Revenants and Splashers if you can expose and hit their core, which is Natalie's main use in gameplay.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: The Whip Spiders, which are, well, whip spiders who have grown to the size of small dogs as a result of being exposed to T-Phobos. Ironically, they're one of the smallest giant bug enemies to appear in the series, just barely beating out the hand-sized giant bees of the very first game.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Some Revenants sport rusty, jagged blades in lieu of arms or even as peg-legs.
  • Body Horror: All of the B.O.Ws count, but the Glasps — who were human, but have been twisted into grotesque insectile forms — are perhaps the worst.
  • Combat Tentacles: Durgas fight with a single huge tentacle that they use to bash and crush.
  • Elite Mook: Ironheads serve this role, being more common than Vulcanblubbers, and tougher than their fellow Afflicted — including No Selling the One-Hit Kill mechanic — but still not a "true" mini-boss.
  • Expy:
    • The Afflicted are rather like the Haunted of The Evil Within, being murderously insane, vicious humanoids mutilated by using nails, barbed wire, shards of metal and other detritus to rend, gouge, stab and impale themselves.
    • Ironheads look rather a lot like Pyramid Head, being tall, nearly naked and heavily muscled male humanoids with elongated, face-enclosing masks and carrying two-handed weapons.
  • Glass Cannon: To balance out their invisibility and one-hit kill attack, Glasps are slow-moving and very fragile.
  • Invisibility: Glasps are almost impossible to see, save for the mild Interface Screw and "Psycho" Strings you hear when they get close.
  • Kill It with Fire: The Uroboros mutations are weak to fire, with the Revenants instantly dying once being ignited.
  • Playing with Fire: Vulcanblubbers use short-range fiery blasts to try and cook their victims.
  • One-Hit Kill: Glasps and Durgas can both do this if you let them get in reach of you.
  • Our Zombies Are Different:
    • The Afflicted are Technically Living Zombies, being humans mutated and driven violently insane by exposure to T-Phobos, which has also made them highly averse to the light. If killed or left to starve, they can eventually come back from the dead as decayed, black, skeletal "real" undead zombies called the Rotten.
    • Revenants are amalgamations of corpses and metal pieces animated by Uroboros, giving them an appearance rather like Frankenstein's Monster.
  • Raising the Steaks: The Orthus are horrifically disfigured dog-pig monsters created by exposing T-Phobos to dogs.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: When's the last time you saw a whip spider in a video-game?
  • Stout Strength: Vulcanblubbers, as their Meaningful Name suggests, are about twice as tall as a human and at least four times the girth.
  • Weakened by the Light: The Afflicted hate bright lights, allowing Moira to stun them and set them up for powerful melee attacks by using her flashlight.
