Mac Dowell was a mercenary for the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, who was sent in to Raccoon City on September 26, 1998 to contain the viral outbreak. He was romantically involved with a Raccoon City civilian named Mary.
Mac's stats are as follows:
- Fast running speed
- Average vitality (between 2000 and 2500)
- Attack power similar to George
- Infection rate of 1.09% per minute
His girlfriend Mary is a Cindy-type and will follow him if he's controlled by the player and she's controlled by the AI, since George and Cindy-type characters like each other.
- Mac is actually the first character in both Outbreak games' internal hex list. He occupies hexidecimal slot 01, the first slot with any real character data. It is also worth noting that because of this, he appears first on the NPC select for File #1 (since it's actually in Hexidecimal order) and first in File #2 when selecting George type NPCs. This includes the ingame models and higher poly cutscene models.
- Mac's cutscene and ingame models seem to be placeholder models as in the index for the higher poly models and ingame ones, empty slots have his model in place.
