Peter Jenkins was a researcher and lecturer at the prestigious Raccoon University, and a friend of George Hamilton. Peter assisted in the creation of Daylight, a vaccine able to halt the t-Virus infection.
Peter met Greg Mueller earlier in 1998. Greg informed him of the "t-Virus", a highly-mutagenic Zoonotic virus being developed by the international pharmaceutical enterprise Umbrella. It wasn't until the virus was already within Raccoon City, having originated from multiple sources such as the infested Arklay Mountains, that the antidote was discovered.
Peter started to become suspicious of Greg's knowledge of the t-virus, and was scared for his very life after realizing that he and Greg were the only two to know of the Daylight research. Hiding important notes throughout the University, Peter planned of having his friend George retrieve them and create the antidote himself, in the event that Peter died.
He was eventually murdered by Greg, being shot in the back of the head in his private study. He was found by George and other two survivors early on October 1st, and his scattered notes provided enough knowledge to create the antidote themselves.
