- Keith Lumley - along with his partner Quint Cetcham, Keith are first sent to the airport, then to the crash site of an airplane to check the airplane's computer for data regarding the bioterrorist attacks. After this, they travel back to the airport for more information and must fight off wave after wave of B.O.W.s.
- Quint Cetcham - under Chris Redfield's suggestion, Quint and his partner Keith were assigned by Clive O'Brian to storm the airport, one of Veltro's main hideouts, to collect any information about the Queen Zenobia in order to track their fellow comrades, Parker and Jill.
- Clive O'Brian - the director of the BSAA during the incident known as the Terragrigia Panic. Although he shared command with Morgan Lansdale, the two did not see eye to eye. O'Brian was vehemently opposed to Lansdale's plan to sterilize the city. Shortly afterwards, Terragrigia was destroyed despite his wishes. A year later, O'Brian hoped to use the Queen Zenobia to collect incriminating evidence against Lansdale and see him relieved of his position as the head of FBC.
- Morgan Lansdale - the head of FBC who sent agents Raymond Vester and Rachael Foley to the Queen Zenobia to assess the threat to him around the same time that BSAA agents Jill and Parker were also dispatched to the vessel.
- Jack Norman - believing that people have become decadent and sinful, the head of Veltro uses B.O.W.s to create terror and attempt to make everyone realize their own corruption.
In 2005, BSAA head Clive R. O'Brian sends out Jill Valentine and her new partner, Parker Luciani, to search for Chris Redfield and his new partner, Jessica Sherawat. They have reportedly gone missing and lost contact with HQ during their mission to investigate Veltro's possible reappearance. Jill and Parker are sent to search for them at their last known location, the cruise ship SS Queen Zenobia. During their search, they encounter several B.O.W.s on the ship infected with the T-Abyss virus, a marine virus derived from the deadly T-Virus. They finally enter a room where they believe Chris is being held, realizing too late that it was all a trap.
Chris and Jessica, meanwhile, find a base of operations for Veltro; the Valkoinen Mökki airstrip in the mountains. Being informed by O'Brian that Jill and Parker are missing in the Mediterranean, they are redeployed to investigate their whereabouts. Awakening in separate locked rooms aboard the Zenobia, Jill and Parker manage to escape and regroup. They later encounter FBC agent Raymond Vester, whose life Parker had saved during the Terragrigia Panic. They also witness a video transmission of a masked man claiming to be part of Veltro who threatens to infect approximately one fifth of the Earth's oceans with the T-Abyss, which was created in retaliation to the FBC for their involvement in the destruction of Veltro's forces on Terragrigia.
