(Covers information from the S.D. Perry novels)
Captain Evans was a Pilot and an acquaintance of Trent. He was willing to take part in illegal immigration, and was recommended to John Andrews by "some friend of a friend of some guy in Arkansas".
Evans provided a Bombardier Dash 8 for the renegade S.T.A.R.S. team-turned anti-Umbrella agents. His relationship with Trent was used so he would turn back, preventing the passengers from traveling to Europe.
