(Capcom's primary storyline)
"I'm losing engine power! Oh shit! I'm out of control! I'm going down! Mayday! Mayday!"
— Kirk's last words.
Kirk "Hat Trick" Mathison (カーク・マシソン) was an operative of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) and a member of the Air Support Platoon,[excerpt 1] serving as one of their helicopter pilots.
Queen Zenobia Incident
In 2005, Mathison was sent to rescue the BSAA operatives named Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine from a B.O.W. called the Malacoda on the Queen Zenobia, providing them with air support. With his help, the two managed to subdue the beast. Afterward, he flew them to the remains of the Queen Dido and returned them to the BSAA Headquarters.
Kijuju Incident and Death
In 2009, Mathison provided air support for the BSAA operatives named Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar during the incident in Kijuju. His helicopter was attacked by the flying Kipepeo creatures, causing him to crash. Upon investigating the crash site, Chris and Sheva found his dead body burning with the helicopter.

"空中支援小隊に所属するヘリコプターパイロット。 BSAA入隊以前に軍や特殊部隊で活動した経歴はなく、 対バイオテロ技術を徹頭徹尾学んできた生え抜きであると言える。 地上部隊の支援と本部との中継を担当。"
