Meet Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City’s Spec-Ops members; background info behind the ‘good guys’
Capcom of Europe has updated today with a blog featuring the Spec-Op members from Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City as well as background information on the lot. Straight from Capcom:
“The Special Ops team is sent in to Raccoon City to find out just what’s been going on and to suppress the zombie threat. Little do they know that they’ll also be up against the Umbrella Security Service and under constant threat from hordes of zombies and B.O.W.s. But just who is this hard bitten crew of highly skilled soldiers? Read on to find out:
Dee-Ay: Crispin ‘Dee-Ay’ Jettingham has been a soldier for as long as he can remember. He was the government’s top choice to be the leader of the Echo Six team. Always calm and collected, he is a true soldier and is highly skilled and efficient with his weaponry and his orders.
Harley: A foul-mouthed ex-biker, Erez ‘Harley’ Morris joined the service to avoid going to jail. Excelling in medicine during operation Desert Storm, Harley unexpectedly became one of the best medics in the field. Always putting other’s lives before his, he will always do his best to make sure no man is left behind.
Party Girl: Sienna ‘Party Girl’ Fowler got her reputation throwing wild parties in her youth for businessmen and officials. Little did they know that every party she threw was also recorded with hidden equipment, which would be sold to the highest bidder. The government hired her after she managed to dupe their top surveillance expert at one of her parties.
Shona: Exposed to death at a young age, Lawrence ‘Shona’ Kimbala began treating diseases in his home country of Zimbabwe. After his father’s death, he attended Harvard medical school where he realized he had a skill for controlling viruses instead of curing them. He joined the Army’s special weapons program as their foremost expert in virology.
Tweed: Marissa ‘Tweed’ Ronson has a quick tongue and a ready fuse. Originally working for the British Secret Service, she disappeared after a bomb removal operation left her scarred. Hand-picked by the government, Tweed became part of Echo Six because of her unparalleled expertise in demolitions.
Willow: Caroline ‘Willow’ Floyd developed her skill for speed and elusion growing up alone on a reservation in Montana. She joined the Army straight out of school, excelling as part of the Special Forces. Never satisfied with herself, Willow continues to hone her skills each and every day.”
Quite the interesting bunch. They seem like Resident Evil main-type characters and fit into the universe rather well. Admittedly when I first heard the Umbrella Security Service were going to be up against Spec-Ops I wasn’t that impressed. But these guys seem very Resident Evil-like and it’s neat to see them with some depth rather than just a pretty face. We’ll bring you more on the game as it comes.
