(Covers information from Anderson's universe)
Rancid was part of a group of T-virus survivors hiding out outside Salt Lake City.
Like Pock Mark, Rancid used only his own weapons against Alice, though they were the same models as Alice's, two pistols. He, like everyone else, died when their "pet" dogs escaped the pit and attacked his family. Like Ma, Rancid's death is briefly shown.
He was portrayed by Brian Steel (who also doubled for the Tyrant Isaacs near the end of the film).
