"Ah! No! Get away from me!"
— Kenneth to a zombie, before being eaten.
Dr. Kenneth J. Sullivan was S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team's point man and in charge of reconnaissance and position security. Kenneth also put his knowledge as a chemist to good use. As well as his role in S.T.A.R.S., the "mild-mannered" Kenneth spent his free time pursuing his hobby of landscaping, of which he was something of a connoisseur.[notes 1]
The oldest member of S.T.A.R.S., Kenneth was selected for the team due to his Ph.D. in Chemistry. His experience by July 1998 was thought to rival Captain Enrico Marini, himself.
Seconds after the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team's arrival at the mansion late on the 24th, Kenneth was attacked by azombie in the Dining Room. [notes 3] He escaped to a linking hallway, firing as he went, but his gunshots failed to strike it down. The monster grabbed hold of him and began ripping through his neck. When S.T.A.R.S. members Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield arrived in the room seconds later, he struggled to breathe with the blood entering his lungs, where he died shortly after.
