Prime universe
(Capcom's primary storyline)

"So I'll get help and come back, right? Looks like it's a race against time..."
— Rita discussing a possible escape route with Marvin, Fred and Aaron.

Rita Phillips[2] was an officer of the Raccoon City Police Department.


When the t-Virus contaminated Raccoon City's drinking supply, Rita spent the next several days at the Raccoon City Police Station as it was besieged by Zombies. Unable to keep the building safe, the surviving police officers under Lieutenant Marvin Branagh came up with an escape plan using the police station's secret tunnels. Rita was successful in entering and navigating the tunnels, and returned to the station with fellow officer Harry, who had a van. The two drove back to pick up survivors, but several more had been killed in the previous hour, and they they were forced to leave Marvin behind. Rita's whereabouts are unknown, if she escaped Raccoon City at all.


"C'mon, get in! Is this everyone?!? What about Marvin?"
— Rita realizes that all of her fellow officers have been killed or infected.

During a normal game, Rita is seen in the main hall early in the scenario using the lobby terminal. The player character can speak with her, with Kevin's dialogue being different from others. With the eight default characters, she can also be conversed with further via ad-lib. Playable NPCs, however, cannot do this.

Rita can be unlocked as playable in File #2: As a player character, she features an above-average health for her character type. Because she is an Alyssa type, she can unlock certain cases and lockers with her lockpick. She is, however, slightly slower in movement speed at 0.91 of the default standard. She can take potshots with handguns to take advantage of her 1.13x damage multiplier. She begins each scenario with a box of "Handgun Rounds" in her inventory.

Further Notes

Rita wears a tie and tie clasp, whereas most officers do not. It is likely that this is an optional accessory to the standard uniform.
