Irina was a minor character mentioned in Resident Evil: Damnation.
Irina grew up in the Eastern Slav Republic along with her friends, Alexander Kozachenko and JD. She and Alexander both found jobs as school teachers and eventually fell in love. Sometime after they were engaged to be married, the school she and Alexander worked at was attacked by government forces. With the belief that it was the home to rebel forces, the building was burned down and Irina was killed alongside some of the school children. It was this event that spurred Alexander, later known as Buddy, to join the resistance.
