The Licker is one such mutation experienced by zombies as part of the V-ACT process, depending on the variant of the t-Virus they were infected with. The mutations transform them into more deadly and agile hunters.
The Licker came into existence at some point after the
Crimson Head Prototype 1's creation, when V-ACT was underground research. By 1998 they were undergoing research at the Raccoon City Underground Laboratory as potential bio-weapons. The name "Licker" itself was first given to this creature by the officers at the Raccoon City Police Department, who encountered a number of them around the building during the Raccoon City Destruction Incident.
In the 21st century, the Licker was reexamined by
Tricell, who modified the creatures with further viral infections to create a more powerful weapon.
