Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew up... as part of Project W. Because of his exceptional genes, Albert Wesker was kidnapped as a child as part of Umbrella Corporation Founder Oswell E. Spencer’s plan to create a new master race. He was the only child that survived the secret viral experimentations.

Living... in Africa. After the fall of Umbrella, Wesker relocated to Kijuju as part of his new bioterror plot with TRICELL Pharmaceuticals. 

Profession... researcher for Umbrella. Although he briefly posed as leader of the S.T.A.R.S. special ops team, in reality Wesker works as a top researcher for the villainous Umbrella Corporation, developing increasingly horrifying viruses and bio-organic weapons.

Interests… conducting bioweapon experiments. Wesker enjoys pushing his research to the next level, no matter the human cost. He has sacrificed countless victims to perfect his Ouroboros project. He even tests viruses on himself, granting him numerous unstable superhuman abilities.

Relationship Status... uninterested. Wesker only cares about making himself a God. However, he will string women along who are clearly interested in him, like TRICELL executive Excella Gionne, if he thinks it will serve his own needs. Still, he did father an illegitimate child, Jake Muller.

Challenge... reshaping the world. Wesker wants to use his viruses to reshape the world until only the strong survive and thrive. As he says, “Every day, humans come one step closer to self-destruction! I’m not destroying the world, I’m saving it!” Of course, he also believes it is his right to be God in this new world.                                                      

Personality... calculating. Wesker operates from behind the scenes. He prefers to trick people into doing his dirty work, like Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, or hire spies who just want to get paid, like Ada Wong. For goals as ambitious as his, he understands the time and planning they take.
