Carlos Oliveira is a character in the Resident Evil survival horror games.
Originally from a South American anti-government guerrilla group, his exact nationality is unknown, though he does have Native American ancestry. After government forces wiped out his former organization, Carlos was scouted out by the Umbrella Corporation to join the U.B.C.S. He joined up, and was assigned to Delta Platoon, Company A along with Nicholai Ginovaef, Mikhail Victor and Murphy Seeker.
Carlos was put in charge of handling heavy weapons, along with other duties such as local procurement, rear security and arms maintenance. His expertise in weaponry and vehicle operation made him a valuable asset. Despite his violent background, he is warm-hearted and known for joking around. Perhaps as a result of being raised amidst violence, he is brave and always willing to throw himself in the middle of danger.
In Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Carlos meets and assists Jill Valentine throughout the game as the two of them attempt to escape Raccoon City. At one point, Jill becomes infected by the T-Virus after a battle with the Nemesis. At this point, Carlos becomes playable so that the player can prepare a vaccine for Jill. Ultimately, he is successful in escaping the city alive, along with Jill.
