Title

Steve Burnside

Steve Burnside was the son of an employee of the Umbrella Corporation. Though cocky on the outside and often reckless, he was good-hearted but starved for love and affection. 1 2 3 4

History

At some point, Steve's father betrayed Umbrella and attempted to sell its secrets to the highest bidder. The company discovered his actions and the U.S.S. (Umbrella Security Service) attacked his family, killing his mother and taking him and his father as prisoners. They were transported to the prison complex on Rockfort Island. He spent his days of confinement in deep sadness, and began to resent his father for risking his family.

On December 27, 1998, Steve managed to escape from his cell during an attack on the island. During this time, he encountered Claire Redfield and despite initially treating her as a nuisance, they formed a partnership. He saved her life in several life-threatening situations. As he discovered her gentleness and strength, he gradually began to open up his heart to her. During their attempt to escape, they stumbled upon his father, now a Zombie. Burnside was forced to shoot his own father to save Redfield.

The pair escaped from Rockfort Island, but their plane was forcefully led to the Umbrella Antarctic Base by Alfred Ashford. After saving Redfield from Ashford again, the awakened Alexia Ashford destroyed the snowmobile they attempted to escape in, taking them both prisoner. Burnside was subjected to an injection experiment with the modified strain of the t-Veronica virus from Alexia's blood. As Redfield attempted to save him, he began to mutate, becoming a large creature with no sense of reason and immense strength, "Monster Steve." Before he could kill Redfield, he managed to regain his will and his mutation reversed, but he was left with serious injuries. He proclaimed his love for Redfield before dying.

Burnside's corpse, which harbored the modified "t-Alexia virus", was recovered by the subordinates of Albert Wesker. It was subsequently brought to the rival company of Umbrella, making Burnside an important test subject in B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon) history. The virus extracted from him allowed for the development of new B.O.W.s, such as the Jabberwock S3, and the virus was also later sold by Wesker to a former drug lord named Javier Hidalgo, sparking a bioterrorism incident in South America several years later.
