RIP: The Resi characters that croaked it

Brad Vickers

Who? STARS Alpha Team's pilot. A cowardly fellow, he strands his fellow survivors in the original game, only to come to their aid at the end. Tries to flee Raccoon City during the Nemesis incident.

Cause of death: Death by Nemesis. The big guy stick those unpleasant, acid-spouting feelers right through his face after he targets and tracks down the STARS member. His rotting, zombified corpse can be seen in Resi 2.

Dario Rosso
Who? Portly parent who locks himself in a warehouse after his daughter is killed. Inconsolable, he refuses Jill Valentine’s help at the beginning of the game

Cause of death: Dies off-screen trying to escape from the warehouse. The culprits? Rowdy teens. OK, it was zombies.

Mikhail Victor
Who? Leader of the UBCS Delta platoon. A selfless leader, he fights even when badly wounded.

Cause of death: Carks it trying to blow the Nemesis up with his grenade.

Murphy Seeker
Who? A former sniper for the Marines.

Cause of death: He’s infected with the T-virus and is either shot by Carlos Oliveira or Nicholai Ginovaef depending on your choices.

Nicholai Ginovaef
Who? A member of the UBCS, the Russian was sent to Raccoon city to gather combat data on Umbrella’s beasties.

Cause of death: Depending on your choices, he’s either killed by the Nemesis or Jill blows him up with a rocket launcher when he’s piloting a helicopter.

Tyrell Patrick
Who? Another member of the UBCS, he too was sent to gather data about all Umbrella’s nasties

Cause of death: Score one for not being killed by zombies. Minus ten for being killed horribly by explosives.

Steve Burnside
Who? The son of an Umbrella employee, he is an inmate of the Rockford Island facility, but escapes, aiding Claire Redfield in her quest while trying to get into her pants.

Cause of death: Skewered by one of Alexia Ashford’s tentacles.

Alfred Ashford
Who? Manager of the Rockford Island facility and part of the seminally shady Ashford family. In his spare time he likes to nurse a split personality disorder, dressing up and pretending to be his sister.

Cause of death: Shot by Steve Burnside.

Alexia Ashford
Who? Alfred’s twin sister, she was genetically engineered by her father. She injects herself with the T-Veronica virus before placing herself in a 15 year coma. Remerges as a hideous morphing monster.

Cause of death: Turns into the world’s biggest bug before Chris Redfield makes her explode by shooting her bloated, volatile stomach.

Bitores Mendez

Who? Saddler’s flunkie and owner of a decidedly sinister, flasher-esque trench coat.

Cause of death: Pesky Leon S. Kennedy and a whole lot of bullets.

Jack Krauser
Who? A mercenary hired to recover a Las Plagas sample for Albert Wesker. He was an old team-mate of Leon’s.

Cause of death: After seemingly being shot dead by Leon, he’s shot even deader by Ada Wong in the Separate Ways minigame.

Luis Sera
Who? Despite looking like a male undercrackers model, Luis is actually a researcher who helped develop the Las Plagas parasite. Aids Leon at various points in Resi 4

Cause of death Impaled by William Saddler’s, disturbingly phallic, mutated tail of death. Staves off the Grim Reaper long enough to impart conveniently useful information to Leon.


Above: An artist's rendition of Mike's tragic demise

Who? Helicopter pilot who attempts to rescue Leon

Cause of death: Shot down with a rocket launcher by a one of Saddler’s minions. Oh Mike, we barely knew ye.

Osmund Saddler
Who? The man in charge of the Los Illuminados cult and the main baddie of the game. Aims to take over the world with his little parasitic buggers.

Cause of death: The combination of Leon and a corking-sized rocket launcher are too much for Saddler to survive, even in his horribly mutated form.

Ramon Salazar
Who? Filthy rich, diminutive man-child who worships Los Illuminados. Kidnaps Ashley Graham. A lot.

Cause of death Mutates into a hideous screen-filling boss before eating lead-endorsed death at the hands of Leon.

    I think everyone agrees, Mike was the greatest tragedy of all. Goodnight sweet prince...
  • Defguru7777 - March 12, 2009 8:54 p.m.

    Under Luis' description, you said Saddler's first name was William. But under Saddler's profile, you got it right and put Osmund. Weird. Also, what about RE: The Umbrella Chronicles? That had a lot of exclusive deaths.
  • The_Lurcher - March 12, 2009 8:56 p.m.

    indeed JimmyJammy Mike will forever remain in our hearts as the guy who got blown up by brain dead spanish bloke...
