Know Your Idols #2: Alice

by Honeybadger

You can’t talk about the apocalypse without at some point considering zombies and our first lady of the flesheaters is undoubtedly Alice. Our heroine is our lone champion against the evil Umbrella corp and the forthcoming zompoc. All that with amnesia. Gotta love it.

What’s her deal?
Alice wakes up with amnesia in the mansion above ‘The Hive’ in Raccoon City. Umbrella Corp have developed the T Virus which it turns out, s the cause of he zombie apocalypse. She heads into The Hive with the team on clean up after some of the virus was released. It turns out our girl is highly trained and a true survivor. Alice is an expert in numerous weapons and works her way through an impressive array of guns in the films, although in the first one a more lost and vulnerable Alice makes use of whatever she can lay her hands on. Like all good heroines as the series moves on and she becomes increasingly familiar with the situation she becomes more focussed and actively tough, where in the first film she is mostly reacting from instinct. Oh to have those instincts.

Research:
Resident Evil: amnesia, vulnerability, The Hive
Resident Evil Apocalypse: Raccoon City, genetically altered
Resident Evil Extinction: hiding from Umbrella, World is doomed
Resident Evil Afterlife: Clones
Alice does not feature in the Resident Evil games, but they are useful zompoc prep.

She Says:
I could kiss you, you bitch! – RE1
It’s nothing personal. But in an hour, maybe two, you’ll be dead. And moments later, you’ll become one of them. You’ll endanger your friends, try to kill them, probably succeed. I’m sorry. That’s just the way it is. – RE2
I knew your sister, she was a homicidal bitch. – RE3

The apocalypse was man made again here, created by an evil scientific corporation, ‘Umbrella’, who developed the T Virus and as a result destroyed the world. If Amazon ever get into science this is our future folks. Alice is hot, wears great boots, kicks ass in an evening dress, is brutally honest and cool under fire. She may be all that stands between the remnants of the human race and total annihilation. Can’t argue with this girls level of awesome. A true apocalypse heroine.
Honeybadger out.
