The once unpretentious mid-western American community - Raccoon City, has been ruthlessly besieged by a rash of grisly murders.
The severely mutilated body of a young women is discovered along the left bank of Marble River; both arms and her left foot have been severed with considerable power.
Families living in the rural Victory Lake district are attacked and killed by a group of about ten people; victims are apparently eaten. As a result, the unknown perpetrators of these heinous crimes have been dubbed the 'Cannibal Killers.'
Rumors of strange beasts inhabiting the remote Arklay Mountains outlining much of the city begin to spread. As the number of missing hikers and campers swells, all routes leading to the foothills are closed.
With the slayings rapidly encroaching from the surrounding woods, and the death-toll continuing to mount, citizens begin to question the R.P.D’s lack of progress in solving these troubling cases. It remains a mystery why now, during what is universally agreed to be the biggest, most horrifying threat the city has ever faced its elite S.T.A.R.S. teams have all but vanished from the public eye.
The Special Tactics and Rescue Service is an elite, privately funded special unit of the R.P.D. consisting of two irregular six man cells known as 'Alpha' and 'Bravo'.
Founded as a part of the mayors "A Bright 21st Century for Raccoon" campaign funded by the Umbrella Corporation, S.T.A.R.S. has served as Raccoon City’s elite team of field operatives ever since.
Officers were scouted from military, police, and civilian backgrounds with emphasis on diverse skill sets.
The standard field formation is as follows:
The commander. In charge of tactical operations.
PM (Point Man)
Location scout on the front line during a mission.
BUM (Backup Man)

OM (Omni Man)
Transporting various types of equipment and mobilization of heavy armaments are its duties.
RS (Rear Security)

Assault Shotgun: A S.T.A.R.S. custom. Featuring a smaller spread then the standard shotgun, it is designed to be a powerful mid-range weapon. Holds ten 12 gauge shotgun shells.
The Umbrella Corporation is a pharmaceutical conglomerate based out of Paris. Umbrella has a strong foothold in Raccoon City, using the once sleepy mountain town as it's main base of operations in North America. As the population continues to swell, Umbrella has provided many generous donations to keep the city on the leading edge.

Name: Zane Anderson
Position: Point Man
Appearance: Standing at 5'11" and weighing in at 142 Lbs, Zane is of a relatively average height with a lean, lanky, yet well toned build. His dark brown hair, bangs hanging nearly to his brow both blend to match his deep brown eyes, and serve to accentuate his fair complexion.
Profile: Born and raised in Raccoon City, Zane had a troubled family life and few friends. Desperate to escape his life, Zane joined the military after only narrowly graduating in hopes of seeing the world and finding his path, feeling Raccoon City had nothing for him. There he quickly gained a reputation as a deadly sharpshooter with a steady hand, no doubt thanks to his background in the sport of archery. However he soon discovered that the military wasn't the life for him, and fell into a deep depression that would plague him for many years. He endured, although picked up the habit of excessive alcohol consumption along the way. When he finally did return home to Raccoon City, he entered a local shooting competition and effortlessly cleaned house against the best shots in the R.P.D. He was later approached about joining the newly forming S.T.A.R.S. Feeling hopeful that he might still find his place in the world, he happily accepted.
Zane may not look like much on the outside, but he has a will of steel and body of iron. Zane is truly a go-getter who never gives up, no matter what. He has demonstrated the ability to absorb massive amounts of damage in the past, and rarely will he allow things such as pain and exhaustion to slow him once he gets going. However, his fiery refusal to surrender and intense passion can just as easily become insubordination. Above all else, Zane hates inaction. Due to the lack of progress made towards solving the recent killings, he has been frequently clashing with the higher-ups and the red tape that comes with being in law enforcement.
Gear: Zane shows strong penchant for the color green. His Kevlar tactical vest is a forest green in color; zip-able at the center, featuring four large pockets for additional storage and a black knife sheath mounted on its left shoulder. Beneath this is his standard S.T.A.R.S. T-shirt, also a vibrant lawn green. On his hands are a set of black fingerless gloves. A pair of city camo fatigues, jet-black tactical leg holster on his right thigh, and black jungle boots round out the uniform.
