(King's BIO HAZARD2 mythos)
Ya Lan was an Asian-American police officer who later became a founding member of the "Bio Hazard Special Team".
Originally he was a police officer attached to a special forces department. His unit was later transferred to military control to participate in a rescue operation in Raccoon City.
In the team gallery on BIO HAZARD 2 VOL.2, Ya Lan and Charlie's names were accidentally swithed.
