(DeCandido's novelizations of Anderson's Films)
Brendan Moody was one of the surviving Umbrella researchers after the global T-virus outbreak.
Surviving in Nevada, Moody was part of Dr. Sam Isaacs' team, who were focusing on defeating the virus by instead vaccinating the zombies. The experiment had some initial success - the zombie had a reduced appetite and was being taught children's games to re-domesticate it. Unfortunately it became enraged at being unable to play the game and ripped Moody's head off.
