Keith Lumley is a Special Operations Agent that served under the BSAA's European Branch of operations under the call sign "Grinder". He was later transferred to the East African Branch.


Valkoinen Mökki Airport

"Feels like something's gonna jump out!"

In 2005, Keith, along with his partner Quint Cetcham, was deployed by Clive R. O'Brian to infiltrate and investigate the Valkoinen Mökki Airport. There, they witnessed a Veltro agent violently mauled to death by a Farfarello B.O.W., which allowed them to obtain the key for the crashed airplane's computer. After collecting the key, they made their way to the crash site, previously visited by Jessica Sherawat and Chris Redfield.

After defeating the Farfarello and the Fenrir B.O.W. at the crash site, they used the key to access the airplane's computer, allowing them to report the Queen Semiramis's coordinates to O'Brian. They later returned to the airport to hack into the computers, where Keith was forced to take on a horde of Farfarello, Fenrir, and ordinary Hunters, while Quint tried to access the data. After surviving the waves of B.O.W.s, Quint finally put all the information together, and realized that the mastermind behind the whole Veltro revival act was none other than director O'Brian himself to put heat on FBC's Morgan Lansdale.

An ordered air strike bombing the airport was then initiated. In the end, Keith and Quint were revealed to have escaped the bombing, and Keith was assigned to the BSAA's East African Branch due to his accomplishments at Valkoinen Mökki, acting as a leading figure in the field.

Keith is an obtainable diorama figure on Resident Evil.NET awarded as a random prize through using a Genesis Scratchcard.

"A talkative womanizer known as "Grinder" due to his attitude to dating. Although Keith can usually be found in the company of various women when off duty, his multiple honorable deeds as part of an elite mercenary unit earned him a place in the BSAA. His daily arguments with Quint, whose geeky inclinations and lack of confidence with women are often a target for Keith's jabs, have almost become a pastime for him."
