The Glimmer was a species descending from one of Umbrella's research experiments. While its progenitor is unknown, an employee at the Umbrella Waste Disposal Facility they were found in suspected a relation to the Hunters.
Like actual Hunters, Glimmers were pack animals. Unlike their fellows, these creatures would taunt their adversaries in order to distract them from the flanking members of the pack. Glimmers preferred dark places, where it was invisible to its prey in all but its glowing red eyes. They moved extremely fast, making them very difficult to shoot.
Due to their small size and lack of claws, Glimmers had a tactic that was different from that of their cousins: rather than slash at enemies, they would jump at prey and vomit in their faces. It is not exactly known why they used this tactic, though zombies are known to rapidly-produce excess stomach acids, which are subsequently evacuated.
It is best to avoid a Glimmer, attempting to kill it would probabily waste ammunition because of its speed.
