(Capcom's primary storyline)
Andy Holland was an Umbrella employee stationed on their planned community on Sheena Island. His role in the project was to supervise the sewers. His hobby was amateur photography.
An American by birth, Holland lived a life of crime to get by, committing various thefts; robberies and assaults. When he fell behind rent, Umbrella offered him a chance to escape, and found himself with a respectable job maintaining Sheena Island's antiquated sewer system. Spending most of his time underground, Holland was largely unaware of Umbrella's doings on the island, where classified information such as the t-Virus was freely available.[excerpt 1] Due to his isolated lifestyle, when he was interviewed by a spy posing as the island governor, Commander Vincent Goldman, he took it at face value.
In November 1998, a modified ε strain was leaked across the island, and B.O.W.s were released by Commander Vincent in an attempt to put down a suspected island revolt. Holland was able to survive for several days, and for a time stalked the spy, Ark Thompson, hoping to kill him. Holland is believed dead during the incident, either being killed by mutants or perishing in the explosion which engulfed the island.
Depending on which way the player will choose to go during the game, Andy Holland may confront Ark towards the end of the game and be killed by the newly-awoken Hypnos-T Type. Other possible confrontations are the UT Commander and Vincent Goldman.
His handgun is a Nambu 14 Custom, known in-game as the Handgun D. Andy's extra scene/death only appears when going through the Library where the player can pick up this gun, likewise the same with the UT Commander, the Arcade and the Handgun C, and Vincent, the Hospital and the Handgun B.
