(Operation Raccoon City's backstory)

For the character in Capcom's prime universe, see Nikolai Zinoviev.
"Nicholai Ginovaef, U.B.C.S. D-Platoon, B-Squad. My team was sent here to rescue citizens, but there's no time for that..."
— Nicholai, upon meeting Wolfpack[1]

Sergeant Nicholai Ginovaef was a mercenary in Umbrella's U.B.C.S. anti-biohazard force. He took part in the mission in Raccoon City following a t-Virus spill.


During his U.B.C.S. career, Nicholai developed a reputation as a suspected traitor, people in his unit frequently dying. This suspicion was confirmed during the 1998 mission, when he offered up the remains of B Squad as a sacrifice to a group of Zombie while running though Raccoon City Hall.

What-if: Delta Team[]

The newly reformed U.S.S. Delta Team encountered Nicholai while taking part in their own mission to the city hall.[1] After witnessing his betrayal of teammates on the building's security feed,[2] they approached him about it. However, he escaped the building during a trap in which he lured over a dozen Lickers into Delta Team's position.[3] Nicholai then began setting up charges to destroy Raccoon City Hospital as part of a covert mission. In the event he was followed, he successfully strapped bombs onto a number of Zombies within the building. He met Delta Team again soon after.


In the level "Corruption", Nicholai is seen using a SIG P226 and a Heckler & Koch PSG-1. Nikolai is playable character in the game's Heroes Mode. He is shown utilizing a sniper rifle and explosives.
