Matt is handcuffed and watched over by Rain and J.D. After the team finds themselves surrounded by legions of the undead Umbrella employees, Matt frees himself and leaves the group during the commotion in order to search for his sister Lisa Addison, a Hive employee working in the research facility to smuggle out a sample of the T-Virus. Matt discovers she has been turned into a zombie when she attacks him. Alice appears and kills Lisa.

Dr. Isaacs defies orders against his second in command, Captain Alexander Slater, and Wesker. During one of the holographic meetings with the Umbrella executives, Dr. Isaac records Wesker's voice, and edits the recording so Isaacs would have the spoken order allowing him the resources to go after Alice and capture her. Using his newly created Super-Undead against Alice and her friends, Isaacs is bitten by one of them and retreats back tothe Umbrella base - an underground outpost similar to The Hive.

In the actual movie itself, Claire is against the idea of going to Alaska.

Larter had no previous knowledge of Claire, nor had she played the games or seen the previous films. She accepted the role citing Claire's strong will and her liking of portraying strong female characters. Larter explains on her character Claire, "She became the leader of this convoy. She's incredibly strong, patient.

Later producers Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt decided to have a separate game character appear alongside the previous film's lead Alice (played by Milla Jovovich), saying, "We thought, rather than bring Jill back, put her with another game heroine."

In "Resident Evil: Extinction", Claire leads a convoy of survivors, alongside Carlos Olivera, after the T-virus has overtaken most of the world's people. In the novelization, Claire organized the Convoy after being rescued by Carlos Olivera and L.J from a group of the undead.

"Resident Evil: Apocalypse"

He is first shown in "Apocalypse", handcuffed next to a zombie prostitute at the police station, saved by Jill Valentine, who shoots the zombies and then shoots his handcuffs, releasing him and advising him to leave town. Later on traveling the city in his Cadillac, he crashes his car at the sight of zombified strippers, and was forced to flee on foot. Walking alone he was saved by a S.T.A.R.S. sniper positioned on the rooftop of an abandoned store. Joining the S.T.A.R.S. who had holed up in the building, L.J. witnessed the first deployment of Nemesis, who killed the S.T.A.R.S. members but left L.J. alive as the Nemesis's main operative was to kill all S.T.A.R.S. members. He was considered a "minimal" threat until he dropped his custom made golden Desert Eagles, which meant he wasn't a threat at all.

Later on, L.J. ran into Jill and Terri Morales and joined them in their search for Angela Ashford. At Angela's school, he is saved by U.B.C.S agent Carlos Oliveira from a zombie, who after killing the corpse later joins the group. L.J. then assists in their escape from Raccoon City as a nuclear strike by Umbrella was finalized. After the events at Raccoon city L.J, along with Carlos, Jill, and Angela rescued Alice from Umbrella's Headquarters.

"Resident Evil: Extinction"

Mike Epps returned as L.J. in "Resident Evil: Extinction" as a member of Claire Redfield's convoy, traveling through Nevada, and eventually to Las Vegas. Along with Carlos from the previous film, he is the only other survivor from Raccoon City. The novelization and film implies a romantic relationship with Betty, a nurse in the convoy from whom he hides an infected bite not long after he clears a motel for zombies.

Early in the film, Carlos and L.J. search in an abandoned motel for gas, food and supplies but L.J. is attacked by zombies and is bitten severely; however, Carlos manages to help him in time, before he is bitten further. Afterwards, L.J. doesn't tell Betty and other members of the convoy that he has been infected. The convoy is then attacked by infected crows the next morning. L.J and Betty attempt to help those trapped in a school bus, but Betty stays behind to hold the windows and keep the crows from getting in the bus. She then saves the last child and passes him to L.J. When the crows finally break in, Betty tells L.J. to leave, and he is physically and mentally distraught when she is pecked to death. Arriving in Las Vegas, a horde of zombies attack and L.J. transforms during the ensuing battle, shortly after saving K-Mart and Carlos' lives. L.J. tries to bite K-Mart, but Carlos intervenes. L.J. manages to bite Carlos before his former friend shoots a bullet into his head.

In the book, it states that L.J. knew he was going to die but wanted to kill as many zombies as possible before it happened.

Albert Wesker

portray= Jason O'Mara

Albert Wesker (played by Jason O'Mara) is the Chief of the Umbrella Corporation. He is based on the video game character of the same name that is the primary antagonist of the series, and has appeared or been mentioned in most of the "Resident Evil" games. The video game version of the character is often referred to as simply Wesker, while in the film he is the head of the Umbrella corporation and therefore referred to as Chairman Wesker. According to the novelization by Keith R.A. DeCandido, Wesker is described as being a former Marine with facial scars from his time in the service.

"Resident Evil: Extinction" producer Paul Anderson stated a character from the earlier games would appear and during the Game Head special, it was confirmed that Albert Wesker would make an appearance. The character had been speculated to appear by fans since 2005, when Sony purchased the rights from Capcom to use the character. [cite web | author=Movies Online| year=2005| title= Movies Online: Albert Wesker To Appear| format= | work=Movies Online| url=http://www.moviesonline.ca/movienews_2255.html | accessdate=2006-05-15]

He is shown in person only in the film "Resident Evil: Extinction", as the Chief of the Umbrella corporation, but it is implied that he had been in the position through the events of both "Resident Evil" and "Resident Evil: Apocalypse". During the events of "Extinction", he heads the corporation from an office in Tokyo, Japan and participates in holographic meetings with the other Umbrella executives from the different countries. He orders Dr. Isaacs to create a cure for the T-Virus outbreak, and later orders the death of the scientist when Isaacs defies his direct orders. Wesker leaves the second in command of the North American branch, Alexander Slater, in charge. When Isaacs mutates into a Tyrant and kills all employees in the North American facility, Wesker decides to control future scientific experimentation from his Japanese facility. At the end of the film, Alice interrupts a holographic meeting with Wesker and the executives, stating that she is coming forthem and bringing an army of her clones.

In July 2005, the producers openly discussed the possibility of following "Extinction" with a fourth film. In an article published in 2006, details were revealed the film would take place in Tokyo, Japan and that Alice would be returning.
