Ashley Graham (voiced by Carolyn Lawrence) is a character from the Resident Evil series of survival horror games. She first appeared in Resident Evil 4.

Biography Edit

Appearance Edit

Ashley is blonde and wears an orange, sleeveless turtleneck sweater with a burgundy sweater around her neck. She also wears a green, plaid skirt with a white g-string underneath and knee-high brown, buckled boots.

If the player beats the game and selects the Special Costume where Leon wears his R.P.D. uniform the next time they play, Ashley will wear a revealing white pop star outfit. If Ada's adventure "Separate Ways" story is completed, Leon gains a gangster suit and Ashley will don a suit of armor.


Ashley can be cheerful and kind, though when a conflict happens she usually complains or gets angry like with Luis made a comment about her breasts or when she and Leon jumped in a dump. Ashley seems to have a crush on Leon, having a few flirting moments when she asked for overtime after being rescued.


She is the twenty year old daughter of the newly-elected President, taken captive by Jack Krauser during her trip home from Massachusetts and held in a European village by the Los Illuminados. It is Leon S. Kennedy's initial objective in the game to ascertain her whereabouts and retrieve her. After meeting her, it is revealed that she has been implanted with a Plaga parasite, so that the cult could gain control of her before returning her to America.

The rest of the game then becomes a quest for Leon and Ashley to find a way to remove the parasites inside their bodies before they fall under Osmund Saddler's control. When Ashley is with Leon, it is the player's duty to protect her.

After Saddler was eliminated, Leon and Ashley made their escape from the collapsing island via a jet ski left by Ada Wong. Ashley offered Leon to come over to her place, which Leon politely declined. Afterward the both of them are picked up by US Government authorities and taken into custody for debriefing.

Gameplay Edit

As with many Capcom games that feature short sections in which the player takes control of a supporting character, the player takes control of Ashley during a brief chapter of the game. In chapter 3-4

In Chapter 3-4 Ashley is controlled, however there are some oddities. Contrary to how the common villagers, zealots, and islanders handle the CPU Ashley by simply picking her light frame up with an over the shoulder carry, they instead lift the player controlled Ashley by the neck if they grab her, if her health goes to zero a small cutscene plays where they break her neck then fling her lifeless corpse over their shoulder. The other enemies of the chapter, the suits of armor, also do not hesitate to kill her.


Ashley may be untrained, but she is not helpless. She can throw lamps at zealots and burn them. When an enemy is stunned in the face, Ashley can suplex the two Zealots in her chapter with the appropriate setup (notably something that the other female character, Ada, cannot do) this only occurs in the Gamecube Version. Ashley is really intelligent as well capable of meeting back up with Leon and even taking care of herself.
