Who is Resident Evil’s Claire?

Claire Redfield is the younger sister of STARS member Chris Redfield, and she first appears in Resident Evil 2 as she heads to Raccoon City in search of her sibling. Upon arrival, she meets fellow RE2 protagonist Leon Kennedy, a rookie cop who’s about to start his first day at the Racoon City Police Department. Throughout the night, Claire must help a young girl named Sherry Birkin survive the horrors that surround them.

Ultimately, Claire and Leon blow up an underground Umbrella facility in which the G-virus is held. Of course, she must fight against all sorts of abominations in order to achieve this, including a mutated William Burking and a Tyrant known as Mr X.

Following the events of Resident Evil 2, Claire takes the lead role in Resident Evil: Code Veronica, where she once again searches for Chris, who she ultimately finds and teams up with during her adventure. But wait, there’s more, as Claire appears again as a primary playable character in Resident Evil Revelations 2.

During this game, she works as a journalist but ends up being imprisoned on an island with the daughter of Barry Birkin, Moira, and the pair of them must fight for survival against despicable abominations while also working to uncover the secrets of the island and those that run it.

What is Claire’s personality?

If Claire’s zombie-slaying background doesn’t give it away, she’s a tenacious and fearless individual who’s not afraid to tackle an issue head-on. She’s also loyal, kind, and willing to go the extra mile to help people in this terrifying world. The fact she has an older brother who taught her how to use a gun mixed with survival instincts doesn’t hurt either.
