(Capcom's primary storyline)
Dr. Dirk Miller was a viral and B.O.W. researcher as well as former subordinate to Alex Wesker. In 2014, his actions led to the Sonido de Tortuga Island Incident which prompted an investigation by the NGO TerraSave.
Miller first established himself as a viral researcher for Umbrella, but following their collapse in 2003 he was recruited by Alex Wesker to assist with her private research projects on Sonido de Tortuga island.
Entrusted with a large amount of power as well as the privilege of using the facility that Alex used, Miller was assigned as the head researcher on the Jǐn Dú Project ("Kodoku Plan"). Miller's goal was to create a superior B.O.W. developed from samples of other B.O.W.s.
Unfortunately, Miller was now lacking in test subjects on the island and was forced to resort to extreme measures. He decided to play upon the inhabitants' superstitious beliefs and posed as a Shaman where he could take people and use them in the Jǐn Dú Project, including himself.
After TerraSave decided to launch an investigation into strange events occurring on Sonido de Tortuga Island in 2014, Miller encountered Claire Redfield among other Gravure idols who had survived an onslaught of attacks from B.O.Ws on the island.
Miller soon explained the Jǐn Dú Project goal to Claire and the others but was captured by Zǐlì, an undercover Shéng-Yā Pharmaceutical agent, who expressed her intent to acquire a sample of a highly experimental virus named after Miller himself. Zǐlì then killed him after she gained access to his files.
