Title

Alfred Ashford

Alfred Ashford was the older twin brother of Alexia Ashford and the 7th generation head of the Ashford family. He was conceived from the "CODE:Veronica Project" advanced by Alexander Ashford in his effort to create a genius scientist who could restore the family. Alfred was the first result from the project, and was deemed a "failure". He was an executive of the Umbrella Corporation and was appointed as director of the Umbrella Antarctic Base and commander of Rockfort Island. He was proud and dedicated to the restoration of his family name, with deep adoration for his twin sister who he revered as a "queen ant", and happily viewed himself as a "soldier ant" in servitude to her. His evil nature is believed to be the result of genetic left-overs from Alexia. 1 2

History

Birth (1971)

Alfred was the first twin born in 1971 to a surrogate mother. He had only a marginally superior level of intelligence than an average person. His younger twin sister Alexia however was easily classified as a genius. He was raised in the Umbrella Antarctic Base with his sister in his younger years, sharing distinct adjacent bedrooms.

Childhood (1971~1983)

On January 30, 1983, Alfred tried to find a way into the "forbidden room" in the Antarctic Base. In order to gain access, he required the three Ashford family jewels from himself, his sister and Alexander. On February 17, Alfred acquired the jewels and uncovered the secret underground laboratory in the base where he learned the nature of his and Alexia's birth, feeling animosity towards his father. On March 3, in an attempt to advance Alexia's research on a new virus, she subjected Alexander to an injection test with the prototype strain of the t-Veronica virus, making him the first test subject for the virus. On April 22, Alexia announced that she was going to inject herself with the virus and put herself into a cryogenic sleep to allow her body to adapt to it. At this news, Alfred became distressed. 3

After Alexander failed to adapt to the virus and became a monster without reason, they imprisoned him deep within the base and ensured that his identity was hidden. Alexander was claimed as a "disappearance" and later that April, at the age of 12, Alfred became the 7th generation head of the Ashford family. In December 1983, Alexia injected herself with the t-Veronica virus and went into a cryogenic state, charging Alfred with the protection of her capsule. Alfred swore to protect her capsule and announced her death, claiming she died in an accident while researching the virus. He took the description Alexia made of him as a "soldier ant" literally, and began to become deeply interested in the military.

Career With Umbrella (1983~1998)

Though only Alfred knew of his sister's survival, he soon found Alexia in his imagination since he was unable to cope with the reality that his dearest sister was gone. He graduated from a prestigious university in England in 1993 and secured an official position within the Umbrella Corporation by taking the opportunity presented by his university education. He was appointed as director of the Antarctic Base and successively became an executive of the company. Afterwards, he was appointed as commander of the base on Rockfort Island. But given his lineage, the position as head of the remote region appeared to be too minor, an intentional move by the company to keep him out of the company's major operations.

On December 8, 1993, work was completed on the construction of a military training center on Rockfort Island to train agents of the "U.S.S." (Umbrella Security Service) and "B.O.W. Countermeasure Force". In 1994, he ordered for the construction of a prison complex on the island, as well as a private residence partially based on designs from his living space in the Antarctic Base. Construction of the private residence and the macabre elements within it confirmed that Alfred was mentally ill at the time. Moreover, his personal feelings were intertwined with the construction of the prison.

During his tenure, he took a delight to the torture of prisoners, supplying the prison's anatomist with a variety of supplies for that purpose. He adorned the base on the island with military collectibles. To the company, Alfred was an encumbrance, a petty dictator attempting to emulate a greatness that was beyond him. Meanwhile, Alfred was extremely dissatisfied with his position, being proud of the lineage behind his birth and feeling it wasn't suitable. He was focused on the restoration of the Ashford family rather than his actual positions but his lack of ability led to the family's standing falling even lower than during the reign of his predecessor, Alexander.

He maintained a neat and handsome physical image, but was mentally unstable. With nobody to counsel him and no living relatives or close relationships, Alfred's mental breakdown accelerated with loneliness. To assuage this another personality began to emerge from his mind, an idealized version of his sister created from his own imagination. In 1998, Alfred imprisoned his secretary in the island's prison after he claimed to have saw Alexia (he had actually witnessed Alfred in his split personality). The secretary is assumed to have been sacrificed in the "ritual" of the anatomist and Alfred on May 21. He used prisoners on the island to construct a bridge to connect his office to his private residence, which he kept under strict secrecy and allowed no-one to enter. 4

He was viewed as a terrible director by employees at the Antarctic Base, and his careless attitude led to repeated oversights. Some of these oversights caused a shortage of a chemical known as APL-14, prompting Joel Allman (Executive Vice President of Umbrella U.S.A.) to order quantities of it from William Birkin. 5

Rockfort Island Incident (December 27~28, 1998)

On the night of December 27, Rockfort Island was attacked by a Special Forces group led by Albert Wesker, who was aware of and took advantage of Alfred's lack of ability. Alfred blamed the attack on Claire Redfield, believing her to be a spy and that her capture was an attempt to lead the attackers to his island. He led Claire into a series of insidious traps on the island in an attempt to kill her. With every attempt leading to failure, Alfred began shifting to and from his Alexia persona and attacked Claire and Steve Burnside in the island's private residence, being slightly wounded in the attempt. With his direct attempt a failure, Alfred activated the island's self-destruct system and released a Tyrant (T-103 Mass Produced Type) stored on the island to kill them.

With another attempt ending in failure, Alfred used one of his personal V/TOL Harrier jets to pursue Claire and Steve, who escaped in one of the transport planes kept on the island. He manually switched their plane to auto-pilot, setting their co-ordinates for the Antarctic Base. Alfred once again encountered Claire and Steve in the Antarctic Base, and prepared to murder Claire until the intervention of Steve, who mortally wounded him and sent him plunging several feet down. With his last breaths, Alfred made his way to Alexia's chamber, and managed to witness her awakening before dying in front of her. She later placed his body in her capsule, which was uncovered by Chris Redfield.
