Liz was a university student attending Ivy University in Tall Oaks. She was infected by the C-Virus during the bioterrorist attack on June 29, 2013. She, her father, and agents Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper tried to escape the university via the elevator to the parking garage. While in the elevator, Liz died and succumbed to the infection, quickly turning and attacking her father and eating him. After her father's death, Liz attacked Leon first by trying to bite him twice. When Leon was able to finally push her off after the second bite, she immediately went after Helena pushing her down. After a moment of struggling, Helena rolled onto Liz and managed to hold Liz down and shoot her in the head.
