Brad “Chickenheart” Vickers
Vickers enlisted in the S.T.A.R.S. special forces shortly after its establishment in 1996. Coming from the town of Delucia, Vickers displays a timid behavior and made up for it by serving many roles such as the Alpha Team’s helicopter pilot, thorough knowledge of extracting digital evidence, knowledge of handling chemical substances, and Rear Security. His tendency to take off at the first sign of danger earned him the title of “Chickenheart.”
After the mansion incident in 1998, Vickers and the rest of the surviving members of S.T.A.R.S. returned to the R.P.D station to continue with their investigation of Umbrella. However, the chief didn’t approve of this and had the group disbanded, which Vickers meekly supported. With the rest of the group fleeing Raccoon City, Vickers joined Jill Valentine and continued with their undercover investigation. Later, the pair would have to bear with another tragedy, as another strain of the virus flowed through Raccoon City’s water supply, transforming nearly the entire population into flesh-eating zombies.
