Mac Dowell was a mercenary for the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, who was sent into Raccoon City on September 26, 1998 with a number of colleagues to contain the viral outbreak. He is a clean-shaven, brunette male, wearing standard-issue U.B.C.S. tactical combat apparel and appearing to be in his late teens to early 20s. He is romantically involved with a citizen within Raccoon City named Mary.
Mac's stats are as follows:
- Fast running speed.
- Average vitality (between 2000 and 2500).
- Attack power similar to that of George Hamilton.
- Infection rate of 1.09% per minute.
- Mac's 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 character-types 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.
