"Captain DeChant here. We secured the underground route to the coordinates."
Dan DeChant was formerly a member of the US Army. After retiring, he joined a private military company in Africa, where he witnessed the effects of bioterrorism. This experience led to him joining the BSAA's African branch.[excerpt 1]
In 2009, Dan Dechant's Alpha Team arrived in Kijuju as support for BSAA member Chris Redfield and were tasked with meeting with Ricardo Irving, a weapons dealer. The meeting did not go as planned when Irving released a B.O.W. to kill them. DeChant radioed Kirk Mathison—Alpha team's air support—for assistance. He reported being attacked by a monster but was unable to make any more radio messages.
Chris and Sheva overheard the radio communication and rushed to the meeting place. There, they found a seriously injured DeChant, who warned them about Irving's betrayal and handed Chris the data before dying.
