(Capcom's primary storyline)
On October 1, 1998, Gill and Danny - another firefighter - flew an RFD-registered helicopter around Raccoon City in search for survivors. Witnessing Nikolai Zinoviev's demolition of the Raccoon University, the two flew over to the wreckage to search for survivors. Finding them, it was arranged that the helicopter would land at the university's back square to allow for extraction.
After a showdown with the Thanatos Tyrant, the survivors evacuated, and the chopper escaped Raccoon City before its destruction. Unlike Jill Valentine's helicopter escape on the same day, they were unaffected by the electromagnetic pulse.
Gill can be unlocked as a playable character in both Outbreak games. In File #1 he can be unlocked by clearing Hellfire scenario with Len's ID tag in the player's inventory and then he can be purchased for 5000pts. In File #2 he's unlocked at the start and costs 500pts. If bought in one game, Data convert may be used to bypass purchasing him in the other game. The set contains him with and without his helmet.
