History

Vickers was born in the small town of Delucia in 1963 and admired the beauty of its flower gardens. 6

Mansion Incident (July 1998)

On July 24, 1998, Vickers was charged by Alpha Team's firearms specialist Barry Burton to store an Asian-made M202A1 FLASH (FLame Assault SHoulder Weapon) rocket launcher in the team's helicopter, originally confiscated from a transaction between two organized criminal organization in a previous investigation. Only Vickers and Burton knew of its presence. 7

Vickers piloted Alpha Team's helicopter in the investigation into the disappearance of Bravo Team. He witnessed the brutal mauling of Joseph Frost by the B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon) Cerberus and fled the scene in the helicopter, leaving his comrades behind. He was tormented by his guilty conscience and rather than returning to the R.P.D. (Raccoon Police Department), he returned to the area surrounding Spencer Mansion attempting to contact either Alpha Team or Bravo Team by radio.

On the morning of July 25, he continued circling Raccoon Forest but began to run out of fuel and made a final call to the surviving officers requesting them to give him a sign. The survivors signaled him with a flare on the facility's heliport, but he could not land due to the sudden appearance of the Tyrant (T-002 Type). Vickers assisted the survivors by dropping the M202A1 rocket launcher onto the heliport, allowing the survivors to destroy the Tyrant.

Destruction of Raccoon City Incident (September 1998)

After the Mansion incident, Vickers believed the reports of his comrades but feared reprisal from the implicated Umbrella Corporation. He kept his distance from the team having no intention of putting himself in harm's way since he was not directly involved in the incident and turned a deaf ear to the desperate pleas of the surviving S.T.A.R.S. officers, siding with Police Chief Brian Irons in the decision to not investigate the company. 8

On September 28, Vickers was embroiled in the biohazard outbreak in Raccoon City caused by the leaked t-virus. Despite his refusal to go against Umbrella, the company targeted him anyway and he was pursued for elimination by the B.O.W. Nemesis-T Type, deployed into the city to kill the surviving S.T.A.R.S. officers. He evaded it and ran into Jill Valentine, but fled again in search of a way to escape. He decided to return to the R.P.D. believing it to be a safe haven, but he was cornered by the Nemesis-T in the courtyard and severely wounded after being impaled through the mouth by one of its tentacles.

Although Vicker's brain was destroyed by the Nemesis-T's tentacle, he was also infected with a strengthened strain of the t-virus and failed to die. He entered a state of suspended animation in a coma while the virus crudely reconstructed his damaged tissue and resuscitated him as a Zombie, which began aimlessly wandering outside the police station. 9
