(DeCandido's novelizations of the Anderson films)
When the T-virus spread out into Raccoon City from The Hive, Rashonda was infected. The Raccoon City Police Department was initially ignoring the wide-scale violence and continued on like any ordinary day, arresting Rashonda for prostitution and Lloyd for working a crooked card game. She was handcuffed in the police department near Sergeant Quinn's desk where she transformed into a Zomboid. The police completely ignored her, even handcuffing Lloyd right next to her. When Rashonda turned on Lloyd during a Zomboid attack on the RCPD, help came in the form of Jill Valentine, who shot the Zomboid in the head and killing her.
