Piers Nivans es un agente de la BSAA de 26 años que trabaja para la división de América del Norte. Chris Redfield es su capitán.
Su coordinación y habilidad para concentrarse no tienen igual y por ello es el francotirador más cotizado. Sabe reaccionar con rapidez a cualquier cambio que ocurra en el campo de batalla y logra encontrar la manera de completar su misión a pesar de las condiciones sean adversas. Durante el combate es serio y decidido, pero no duda en ofrecer palabras amables a sus compañeros de equipo.
Precisamente por esas cualidades, su capitán afirma que el futuro de la BSAA debe estar en manos de gente como él. El mismo Piers considera a los soldados de su equipo miembros de una gran familia, no sus subordinados. Cree firmemente que la fuerza de la BSAA depende de los lazos de amistad entre los agentes. Siente mucho respeto por el capitán Redfield y Chris también confía en Piers ciegamente.
Piers Nivans is a 26-year-old BSAA operative working for its North American Branch. Chris Redfield is his commanding officer.
His hand-eye coordination and concentration skills are without peer, making him the BSAA's top-ranking sniper. He can react quickly to the changing conditions on a battlefield, and, as such, he will usually find a way to complete his mission in spite of any adverse conditions.
A serious and determined man in battle, he still has time to offer a kind word for his fellow soldiers. It is these qualities that cause his C.O. to comment that the future of the BSAA rests on the shoulders of men like him.
Nivans himself prefers not to think of his team as subordinates, but as members of a big family. He believes that the strength of the BSAA hinges on the bonds of all its agents.
He holds Captain Redfield in the highest respect, and Captain Redfield trusts him implicitly. Piers took over the team after Chris went missing. Below is a note from a high-ranking BSAA officer, detailing Piers' situation during this time.
It's been about a month since Piers took over command of Alpha team and he's doing an excellent job. He's not as strong a leader as Chris was, but he's definitely up to standards. I wouldn't mind making him Alpha team's permanent captain, but I think he would rather see Chris return for the job. He really looks up to him. Probably feels like the BSAA isn't the same without him.
Let's hope our agents in eastern Europe find something on him.
