Prior to joining the Umbrella Security Division, J.D. Salinas served variously as a CIA agent and a U.S. Navy SEAL. Timothy Cain personally recruited J.D. and assigned him to the team led by One. In 2002 the team was charged with infiltrating Hive to shut down the Red Queen computer system after it suddenly killed all the facility's employees.
