(Capcom's primary storyline)
Murphy Seeker was a young mercenary for the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, serving as a sniper for Alpha Platoon and operating in Squad A. He was a close friend of Carlos Oliveira.
Formerly a US Marine and superb soldier, this young man was an expert marksman with an introverted personality. Shortly after Murphy completed his tour of duty and returned home, his brothers were killed by a street gang. In an act of vengeance, Murphy utilized the skills he learned as a Marine and gunned down 20 gang members with a Hunting Rifle before he was arrested and convicted.
After acquiring the status of a demigod for his miraculous and impressive shooting ability, Murphy was offered a spot in the UBCS as a sniper. Murphy accepted the offer, in order to have his life sentence commuted.
Carlos Oliveira found him in the Umbrella Sales Office. Badly wounded and knowing he will soon become a zombie, he begged Carlos to shoot him, and only after doing so multiple times did Carlos muster the strength to do so. Alternatively, if the player met Nikolai Zinoviev in the sales office, Nikolai ruthlessly executed Murphy, despite pleading for his life.
- In a deleted section of the Resident Evil 3: Nemesis script, the Murphy-Carlos scene was to include Murphy explaining that he was infected by contaminated drinking water (therefore, also explaining how the sewer rats spread the virus). While the script segment reached the recording stage, it was removed soon afterwards.
- Depending upon which character kills Murphy, Carlos' dialog on the cable car will vary after getting all the parts. If Carlos kills him, Carlos will be saddened by having to kill Murphy and won't give Jill ammunition before the fight with Nemesis on the cable car. If Nikolai kills Murphy, Carlos will give Jill Flame Round Grenade Launcher ammo.
