The chief of police for the R.P.D., Brian Irons maintains the façade of being a warm-hearted police chief, but he was accepting bribes from Umbrella to turn a blind eye to their many illegal activities in the city. When members of S.T.A.R.S. returned with reports of the mansion incident, he intentionally blocked all further attempts at investigating the matter.
His dark side is not a recent phenomenon. A little known fact about his past is that he was twice accused of domestic violence against his wife during his college years, and he avoided incarceration by agreeing to undertake psychiatric evaluation. During the events in Raccoon City, his unstable nature began to rear its ugly head again. He locked down the police station to make sure all of his subordinates went down with him and even made a personal trophy of the mayor’s dead daughter.
