Karl was an Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service mercenary who was killed during the Raccoon City Destruction Incident.


He was part of a squad under Nikolai Zinoviev, ordered to capture or destroy Thanatos to take its blood. The plan did not go too well when Nikolai managed to shoot a pod into Thanatos, collecting its blood. This caused the Tyrant to go on a rampage, killing the entire team, except for Nikolai.


His character skin is first unlockable in the first Resident Evil Outbreak, albeit unnamed. A named version of his skin is in the sequel. He's a Kevin-type character. His stats are as follows:

  • a relatively high vitality of 3100-3500
  • an infection rate of 1.38% per minute
  • a movement speed of 1.00
  • a damage multiplier of X1.18

Karl starts in FINE status with a First Aid Spray.[1]

Further Notes Edit

  • in the CG cutscene he appears in, all the U.B.C.S. members have sleeves, yet his ingame model shows him without sleeves.
