Title

Barry Burton

Barry Burton was a combat specialist and advisor to the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) and former BUM (Backup Man) in the Alpha Team of S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Service). He had an extensive career in military and law enforcement and was one of initially few individuals with B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon) combat experience.

He was a devoted husband and father with a wife, Kathy Burton and daughters Moira Burton and Polly Burton, whom he loved deeply and cared for more than anything. As a member of the NRA (National Rifle Association), he was a gun-nut, collector and firearms specialist with very extensive knowledge. He was mild-mannered, compassionate and trustworthy with a strong sense of duty, justice and responsibility. A lover of high-power, high-caliber revolvers, he usually used the M29 and 3inch 44 magnums. 1 2 3

History

Early History

Burton's career began in 1983. He joined the USAF (United States Air Force) where he served with Chris Redfield and learned to pilot helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. After completing his service, he joined a certain police department's SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team. His mentor in law enforcement was Enrico Marini.

In 1996, he was scouted by the Raccoon Police Department's special operations unit S.T.A.R.S. in Raccoon City for his extensive knowledge and skill in firearms. He was appointed to S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team and placed in charge of routine upgrade and replenishment of the unit's firearms. Soon after, he enlisted Redfield into the unit. Whenever Redfield did something, Chief of Police Brian Irons complained to him each and every time. 4

He was superb when partnered with Redfield by backing him up in various situations and leading several difficult missions to success. In his private life, he frequented J's Bar in Raccoon City and was a close friend of Robert Kendo, the owner of Kendo Gun Shop with whom he went fishing in Stoneville. 5 6 Burton often assigned modifications of S.T.A.R.S. weapons to Kendo, most notably the custom Samurai Edge handgun. 7

Mansion Incident (Jul. 24, 1998)

In July 1998, Burton's family were taken hostage by S.T.A.R.S. Captain Albert Wesker, who revealed himself to Burton as an agent for the Umbrella Corporation and that they would be killed if he disobeyed.

On July 24, Burton was dispatched with Alpha Team to search for the recently missing Bravo Team. Just before departure, Burton secretly stashed a rocket launcher taken as evidence from a previous case on the team's helicopter as a precaution and only told pilot Brad Vickers about its presence. 8

During the case, Burton was reminded of his situation by Wesker and told of Umbrella's intention to destroy S.T.A.R.S. Burton pleaded with Wesker that this was unnecessary, but gave up when reminded of his family's safety and followed Wesker's plot to lure the surviving officers to the room containing the ultimate B.O.W. Tyrant. Later, Burton regrouped with Valentine in a series of caves beneath the mansion courtyard and led Wesker to Enrico Marini. This led to Marini being assassinated.

Upon reaching the Tyrant's room and confronting Wesker, he quickly regained his sense of justice and assisted his teammates. The remaining officers were able to subdue the Tyrant and made their way to the heliport to rendezvous with Vickers, but they were attacked by the Tyrant again. This time, Vickers dropped the rocket launcher Burton had stashed on the helicopter, and they were able to destroy the Tyrant and escape the facility before it exploded. Upon their return, Burton reunited with his family and sided with Redfield and Valentine on their reports on the incident.

Raccoon City Destruction Incident (1998)

In August 1998, Burton, Redfield and Valentine decided to continue an independent investigation into Umbrella Corp. and planned to begin at the company's headquarters in Europe. Burton moved his family to Canada since Umbrella had no branch in the country. However, he learned of the biohazard outbreak in Raccoon City on the news. Remembering that Valentine stayed in the city to investigate Umbrella's secret underground laboratory, he drove to the city and attempted to enter but was stopped by the military blockade. 9

He chartered a civilian helicopter with the help of an old friend from SWAT and waited until the moment the military lifted its blockade before approaching the city at a low altitude. 10 On October 2, the blockade was lifted due to the government's decision to eradicate the city with a missile. Burton carried out a rescue plan and established radio contact with Carlos Oliveira, a mercenary cooperating with Valentine. Moments before the city's destruction, he safely evacuated the two survivors and escaped.

After the incident, Burton was scouted for B.O.W. combat experience by the Anti-Umbrella Pursuit and Investigation Team, a secret military organization under USSTRATCOM (United States Strategic Command). He worked with fellow agent Leon S. Kennedy. 11 After the team's dissolution, he became a combat specialist advisor to the BSAA at the invitation of Redfield and Valentine. He refused to become an SOA (Special Operations Agent) or SOU (Special Operations Unit) in order to spend more time with his family. He received the custom Samurai Edge Barry Burton Model Ver.II from Quint Cetcham.

One day, Burton forgot to lock up his guns. An M1911 handgun was found by his daughters while they were playing and Moira accidentally shot Polly. He rushed to them after hearing the shot and shouted at Moira despite knowing it was his own fault. This incident deeply traumatized Moira and gave her an irrational fear of firearms, leading to a strained and hostile relationship between them.

Sushestvovanje Island Incident (2011)

In 2011, Burton protested Moira's decision to join TerraSave, not wanting his daughter to be exposed to the dangers of bioterrorism he knew first-hand. However, she joined the organization despite his objections and was abducted by mercenaries hired by Alex Wesker along with several other employees on her first day and transported to the isolated Sushestvovanje Island. Burton was overwhelmed with worry after the abduction and heard about the recovery of Claire Redfield from the ocean. She told him that Moira was dead before being taken to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit).

On his own, Burton continued looking for clues to the island's whereabouts. Although Redfield was questioned by the BSAA, he had to use forceful means to obtain the information along with an analyzed SOS call made by Moira. Six months later, he discovered the island's location and informed the BSAA before racing ahead in a boat to find his daughter. 12 Immediately after arriving on the island, he met the young girl Natalia Korda and encountered B.O.W. activity. Discovering that the distress call was six months old and Korda's memories of Moira being dead shook him, but he refused to believe she was dead.

The two encountered the resurrected mutant Alex Wesker and fled, eventually finding Moira's cell phone in the hideout of deceased islander Evgeny Rebic, who took Moira in after she was injured by the collapsing tower. He pursued Wesker in order to kill her for putting Moira in danger, but nearly failed to save Korda from being killed by Wesker until she was saved by Moira. The father and daughter briefly reunited and were saved by Redfield in a BSAA helicopter. However, Burton chose to face Wesker before escaping and was assisted by Redfield from the helicopter. Wesker was killed by Redfield with a rocket launcher and the four left the island as BSAA units approached.

After the incident, the Burton family adopted Natalia Korda. However, two years later, a bioterrorism incident occurred in Tall Oaks. Media reports on the incident were witnessed by Korda, causing the transmigrated consciousness of Alex Wesker to awaken within her.
