When the company changed Elsa Walker to Claire Redfield, the character's biography also underwent some changes. If in the original plan it was a student who goes home after a vacation, then the character who replaced her is the sister of the protagonist of the original game.
Claire Redfield left herself the appearance of Elsa, having received an unforgettable look: a girl with dark hair, a jacket with a popular portrayal for military pilots (an angel girl and air bombs) and a pistol in her hands.
According to the plot of the second part of the "Resident Evil", Claire meets the young policeman Leon, whose surname is the same as that of the President of the United States of America - Kennedy. The two heroes of the second part go on a dangerous journey through the city so that Redfield manages to find her brother Chris.
The game explains the ability of Claire Redfield to own a firearm by the fact that they often trained with their brother. Judging by the second part, the exercises happened to the girl as it is impossible by the way.
However, the city is dominated by zombies and is subject to destruction. To survive and successfully continue their mission, Claire and Leon are trying to leave Rakun City. When they succeed, the girl decides to return to the city and find her brother, this is the epilogue of the second part of the "Abode", in which the heroine is mentioned.

In the autumn of last year, the protagonist returned to the full-fledged game Resident Evil: Revelation. Part two". However, the fans did not welcome the new look of the heroine. In a new adventure, the developers showed us a 32-year-old woman who works in a large company to combat biological terrorism.
It is from this company that a group of military abducts Claire and the daughter of Burton (a character from the original game), having previously showered them with gas. When the heroine comes to her senses, she discovers that they were placed in a prison on an island.
Joint rescue is a fiasco, and Moira Burton remains on the island.
