(DeCandido's novelizations of the Anderson films)
Pablo Villanueva was a survivor of the global T-virus pandemic of 2002.
Some time after the viral outbreak, Pablo joined Claire Redfield's convoy. In 2007, the convoy moved into Las Vegas, where they were set upon by Umbrella. When the corporation dropped a container on the ground, Pablo and a number of other armed survivors went out to examine it, soon discovering that it was housing powerful mutant Zomboids. In the fight, Pable was punched through the chest. As was custom for the convoy, he was given an impromptu burial after the conflict, with a wooden cross to mark his grave.
