"Captain DeChant here. We secured the underground route to the coordinates."

Captain Dan DeChant was a soldier in the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, and was at one point the leader of its West Africa branch's Alpha Team.[2] DeChant was killed in March 2009 during the BSAA's mission in Kijuju.


DeChant served in the United States Army, and joined a private security contractor in Africa. There he became aware of the risk bioterrorism posed to the continent first hand. This experience led to him joining the BSAA's West African branch.[3][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.
