The Redfield siblings were impacted at an early age by the loss of their parents, though were able to pick themselves up with Chris becoming a S.T.A.R.S. police officer in Raccoon City and Claire attending a university.

Raccoon City Incident (1998)[]

In July 1998, S.T.A.R.S. suffered heavy casualties during an investigation in the Arklay Mountains. Having obtained evidence this was linked to illegal activities by the industrial giant, Umbrella, the unit was disbanded and the survivors kept under close observation by the corporation. Fearing what may happen to his sister, Chris left for Europe to investigate Umbrella on his own, refusing to tell her of his whereabouts. After weeks of not hearing from her brother, Claire left her college in late September for Raccoon City to find out where he was. She stopped at the Mizoil Gas Station in the outskirts on September 29, unaware of the zombie outbreak that engulfed the city for several days. Claire quickly discovered the zombies when investigating the inside of the convenience store to see Daniel Cortini getting his throat ripped out by one of them. Upon leaving she was saved by Leon S. Kennedy, who had also stopped at the station. After driving towards the city, they were separated by a fiery accident, but they both fought their way to the Raccoon Police Station for shelter. Leon and Claire soon discovered the station had collapsed due to the outbreak of the t-Virus, being that the only unzombified police officers were the injured Lt. Marvin Branagh, Elliot Edward, and Police Chief Brian Irons.

Leon Sherry Claire escapes Raccoon after defaet Birkin

Claire, Leon and Sherry escape the Raccoon City after eliminating mutant Birkin.

While navigating the police station's underground tunnels, Claire found Sherry Birkin, the daughter of William and Annette Birkin. They later crossed paths with a psychopathic Chief Irons, who kidnapped Sherry for her pendant. Irons was later killed by William, who had injected himself with the G-virus and turned into a mutant Annette called "G". Sherry and Claire reunited, but after the elevator drop with G Birkin, Sherry was implanted with the "G" larvae. She was sealed in the waste storage vault for safety by her mother who continued the research on her daughter while trying to find the vaccine. Children of a G-virus carrier are more likely to accept a G-virus embryo, and Sherry would have faced death if she was not cured.

Claire reunited with Sherry and carried her to the underground laboratory for treatment on her mother's insistence. Fighting mutants throughout the lab, Claire obtained a vaccine to stop Sherry from mutating into "G". When the facility's self-destruct system was activated, Claire and Sherry escaped on a train with Leon. "G" survived the final battle with Claire and attacked the train during the ride; Leon and Claire teamed up to defeat "G", and the train car it attacked was disconnected and sent hurtling back into the imploding lab.
