(Capcom's primary storyline)
Veronica Ashford, 1st Countess Ashford (ベロニカ・アシュフォード Beronika Ashufōdo ) was an influential 19th century British noblewoman. The founder of the aristocratic Ashford family, she was renowned for her remarkable combination of intellect and beauty.
Like Alexia, at a very young age she demonstrated extraordinary aptitude in every subject. She was especially well-versed in mathematics, biology and linguistics. By the age of ten, she already had a postgraduate education, and was fluent in ten languages. With her good looks and captivating manner of speaking, she charmed everyone she came into contact with. As a result, she naturally won over faithful servants. As her descendants' names are also Ashford and she founded the name, it is suggested that her children decided to keep her name.
Her peerage was then passed to her successor, her son Stanley Ashford. Years later, Alexander Ashford used her DNA in the creation of his twin children, Alfred and Alexia. The DNA originated from her embalmed body, entombed at the Ashfords' European home.[excerpt 1]
