Further notes

Forest Speyer was a member of the Special Tactics And Rescue Service, an organization within the Raccoon Police Department, serving under the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team as the cyber security supervisor[excerpt 1] of the team and as its marksman; a similar role of his best friend, S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team's Chris Redfield. The two were friendly rivals and commonly turned target practice into competitions, with Chris generally the victor. Like Chris and Jill, Forest came from a military background.[3][excerpt 2]

S.T.A.R.S. Member Forest Speyer

On July 23, 1998, Bravo team was sent into the Arklay Mountains to investigate the disappearances and brutal murders of hikers.[4] Their helicopter experienced engine failure and crashed into the forest.[4] The R.P.D. pilot, Kevin Dooley stayed behind to find the cause of the failure.[4]

While Rebecca Chambers and Edward Dewey searched the Raccoon forest,[4][5] the rest of Bravo Team - Forest included - found an abandoned Spencer Mansion. The team split up to check the area and report back with their findings. Unbeknownst to them, Kevin [6] and Edward were already dead,[5] and Rebecca was unable to reach them for another day.[7]

Enrico Marini searched the caves (just returning from an unnamed Arklay factory), Kenneth J. Sullivan checked the west area, while Rebecca Chambers and Richard Aiken searched the Dormitory,[8] and Forest monitored the east side.

Whilst checking the second floor East terrace, Forest was attacked and pecked by a murder of crows.[excerpt 3] He was rendered infected and unconscious following the attack, and awoke as a Zombie when found by his S.T.A.R.S. comrades, who put him to rest.[note 1]
