i am a voice yet waiting to be heard

Rebecca Chambers
28 December 1979
the medic
Character Name: Rebecca Chambers
Series: Resident Evil
Gender: Female
Age: 21
Species: Human
Sexuality: heterosexual
Appearance: Rebecca is a small woman standing at 5 feet 3 inches and weighing 110lbs. She's fairly slender with some muscle tone due to her S.T.A.R.S. training, but she's really obviously not the brawn of the operation. Her skin is fair, but rather than burning she browns in the sun. She has green eyes and mousy brown hair which she wears short. On her left bicep is a tattoo of a butterfly, which is usually covered when she's wearing her working uniform, typically consisting of green underarmor, a white bulletproof medic vest with a large red cross on the back to indicate her position, green cargo pants, matching boots, and black fingerless gloves. Otherwise she likes clothes that are comfortable, functional, and favors earth tones to more flashy colors. No matter what she's dressed in she always wears a faded pink choker around her neck, a set of dog tags formerly belonging to one Lt. William Coen kept tucked beneath her shirt, and her nurse watch. If in uniform this is complimented by a pack of medical supplies, complete with chemical mixing kit.

the mentality
Personality: Rebecca is a very young but promising individual. She graduated and was accepted into S.T.A.R.S. at the young age of 18. Some might say she's a prodigy, brighter than most, and her acute interest in medicine as well as a strong desire to help people is what drew her to S.T.A.R.S. However, while Rebecca is quite intelligent, she's inexperienced. She tries to put forth a brave face when she's scared, but when she's feeling trapped or overwhelmed her mask will crack and reveal the scared young woman beneath it.

She's naturally a very trusting person, and she has to work to be skeptical of people she's supposed to be skeptical of, at times. This will usually result in her Overly Serious face, while she struggles to take on the role of an experienced police officer. If you can get past the bossy facade, she's genuinely a nice person and reasonably easy to get along with, if you don't rub her the wrong way.

She believes in the good of people, and it hurts her heart to think of people deliberately doing evil things. She tries to look for the good in everyone, but if she looks hard and finds nothing, she'll sometimes become distraught, at the idea of what humanity is capable of without a good conscience to guide them.

Her experiences in Raccoon have given her the opportunity to look at the world for more than what it is, although she still struggles at times to process all the impossible things she's dealt with. Her view on life can sometimes be overly analytical, and she will try to apply something to science if she thinks it can be explained that way. Fortunately her scientific outlook can be balanced by her occasionally overactive imagination.

Abilities: Due to her education Rebecca has an extensive knowledge of biochemistry and medicine including the preparation and administration of pharmaceuticals. She's had field medic training and she went through the S.T.A.R.S. training program, which taught her the essentials of handling and firing a gun, tactical procedure, and police protocol. She's also had some piano lessons, but like most other things she's excelled at in her life, piano playing is something she struggles with. She was on the basketball team in college, and while she's small in stature she's quick, and was a fairly good player.

Weaknesses: Rebecca is not physically very strong. She isn't a very good shot, despite her training, her expertise lies in non-lethal methods. She can be shaken, and while she tries to put on a brave face she can and will crumble if faced with something that looks hopeless. She's also capable of being really pessimistic when she wants to be, which is not helpful in a life-or-death situation. She's afraid of spiders; despite all the horrors she's faced she will freak right out if something eight-legged and crawly comes into her vicinity. She's not without her emotional scars from Raccoon and the creatures she's faced of course, and she has a deep rooted fear of losing people she gets attached to. If she finds herself faced with a life-or-death situation, putting someone she cares for in harm's way, she'll panic and has trouble focusing.

the memories
Rebecca Chambers was a first. First in her graduating class, first teenager to be accepted into a position in the Special Tactics and Rescue Squad, first of the Raccoon City survivors to be plunged into the destruction Umbrella had wrought. Rebecca had just barely been accepted into S.T.A.R.S. when the bizarre murders rocked Raccoon City's usually sleepy quiet. The bravo team was sent out to the location where the murders seemed to be stemming from, an isolated mansion at the foot of the Arklay Mountains, when their helicopter suffered engine failure and they were forced to make an emergency landing in the forest. From the helicopter they started through the woods towards the drop off point on foot when they encountered the wreckage of an overturned jeep and the mutilated corpses of men wearing military fatigues. Rebecca found a clipboard with an order for transport of a prisoner by the name Billy Coen, who had allegedly murdered 23 people. Enrico, the team Captain was quick to determine that Coen must have been the cause of this accident, and ordered the Bravo team to fan out and search for the prisoner, making it their priority to detain him.

Rebecca, being the least experienced of the group was naturally the one to bump into Coen, but only after stumbling on an abandoned train in the middle of the woods, filled with zombies. At first Rebecca tried to arrest Billy, but once he saved her from a swarm of leeches they formed an uneasy alliance. The bond between them strengthened, however, as they learned to work together as they tried to stop the train, and then further on when they ended up in the Umbrella Training Facility. Having uncovered something suspicious and dangerous, Billy was looking a distant second to the horrifying creatures they encountered, even if he had killed 23 people.

After Billy saved Rebecca repeatedly, she attempted to get the truth out of him, beginning to doubt that he did really kill those people, and while he brushed it off as unimportant, she was convinced enough of the good in him, and was able to place her trust in him completely.

Together they uncovered the beginnings of the truth of Umbrella, encountering the reanimated James Marcus as well as several twisted experiments. In the end the pair faced off against the Leech Queen, an entity born from Marcus's mutating form, and were able to kill it and escape the Training Facility before it detonated.

Rebecca left Billy, declaring him dead and taking his dog tags for "proof" of his demise, letting him escape into the wilderness while she made her way towards the Spencer Estate to rendezvous with whomever was left of her squad.

When she reached the Spencer mansion she discovered much the same horror of the Training Facility, and holed herself up in a safe room after briefly surveying the area for her team. Waiting for help to arrive she fell asleep, but was awoken by Richard Aiken, another member of S.T.A.R.S.

Together they attempted to locate help, but instead they ended up running into a large snake. Richard was bitten, and Rebecca didn't dare leave his side long enough to go retrieve the serum she'd left in the room she'd fallen asleep in. Doing the best she could for the wounds he had on-the-spot, they were happened upon by Chris Redfield, who ran for the serum, saving Richard. Together they moved Richard to the safe room, and Rebecca cared for him while Chris went off to continue scouting the area.

Once Richard had recovered, the two split up again and Rebecca located Chris, playing the piano. Badly. She helped him, although she had to practice it for a bit to get it right. They split up again for a while; the next time she saw Chris he broke the news to her that Richard had been killed. Distraught Rebecca left Chris for a room she'd found full of pharmaceuticals, attempting to make herself useful to Chris, at least. Overwhelmed by everything that had happened to her, she broke down crying in front of Chris, who managed to comfort her somewhat.

Eventually the two of them found themselves in a Lab beneath the Spencer Estate, and facing Wesker, whom they'd uncovered as the traitor who sent them all to their deaths. He shot Rebecca, but she was fortunately wearing her bulletproof vest and was only knocked unconscious. Chris wakes her up after fighting off a Tyrant, and together they escaped, although first Rebecca ran to activate the self destruct sequence while Chris goes to find Jill and Barry. The four of them escape to the roof, where they're able to signal Brad, the helicopter pilot. They escaped the mansion just as it burst into flames.

When Rebecca returned to Raccoon, the first thing she did was file the report on the apparent death of Billy Coen and the MPs escorting him. She asks that the case on him be closed, in an attempt to make things a little safer for him while he's on the run. No need to look for a dead man, after all.

Rebecca doesn't get a chance to stick around to see if they do actually close the case, however, because while the S.T.A.R.S. attempted to blow the roof off of Umbrella's cover, they were slapped in the face by how deeply Umbrella had corrupted Raccoon City's government officials. They were all suspended, and S.T.A.R.S. was disbanded.

None of them gave up the fight, however. Chris split off to travel to Europe, while Rebecca moved in stateside. She joined up with a group who had long been tracking Umbrella's movements, and had her hand in providing the scientific insight needed to ultimately bring Umbrella's actions to light.

While Umbrella twisted in court, Rebecca stayed off the radar, working with teams within the anti-Umbrella organization and continued uncovering Umbrella labs and shutting them down. She became a valuable member because she had the first hand experience with Umbrella labs, and medical knowledge was always helpful, especially if they ended up running into trouble.
