"Ah! No! Get away from me! "
— Kenneth to a zombie, before being eaten.[2]

Dr. Kenneth J. Sullivan (ケネス・J・サリヴァン Kenesu Jei Sarivan?) was S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team's point man and in charge of reconnaissance and position security.[4] Kenneth also put his knowledge as a chemist to good use.[5] As well as his role in S.T.A.R.S., the "mild-mannered" Kenneth spent his free time pursuing his hobby of landscaping, of which he was something of a connoisseur.[6][notes 1]

BiographyEdit

The oldest member of S.T.A.R.S., Kenneth was selected for the team due to his Ph.D. in Chemistry. His experience by July 1998 was thought to rival Captain Enrico Marini, himself.[6]

On July 23, 1998, Bravo team was sent out into the Arklay Mountains within the Raccoon Forest, to investigate the cause of a number of animal attacks and cannibalistic homicides. Their helicopter would suffer a serious problem with its engine, due to an apparent sabotage.[notes 2] The chopper went down over the trees, but Raccoon City Police Department pilot Kevin Dooley and his S.T.A.R.S. co-pilot Edward Dewey had just enough control to land soft enough to avoid injuries.

After a brief search of the area, an upturned Marine MP truck and its missing prisoner prompted a halt to the initial investigation, to be replaced by a manhunt. Bravo team would eventually find their way into a deserted mansion, where they would lose contact with one another over the next day: Forest Speyer would be killed by crows in the top floor balcony, while Dewey succumbed to his wounds after being mauled by a pack of Cerberus dogs. Rebecca Chambers, too, would disappear for the night, having discovered a deserted train and the prisoner on it. Enrico Marini would disappear from the mansion altogether, while Richard Aiken would be attacked by a gigantic venomous snake.

DeathEdit

Only moments after the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team's arrival at the mansion late on the 24th, Kenneth was attacked by a zombie in the Dining Room. [notes 3] He escaped into a linking hallway, firing as he went, but his shots failed to strike it down. Overwhelming Kenneth, the zombie tore through his throat. When S.T.A.R.S. members Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield arrived in the room seconds later, he lay dying in front of them, passing shortly before Chris and Jill put down his assailant.
