A former chemist, Kenneth put his chemical knowledge to work as field scouting officer for the S.T.A.R.S. Team. Personally chosen by Albert Wesker to be a part of the Raccoon City team, Kenneth undoubtedly was a talented officer. Still, he harbored questions as to why his scientific knowledge was necessary for the mission.
Kenneth wore a yellow T-shirt under his green S.T.A.R.S. tactical vest, combat boots and dark blue army style pants.
Kenneth is the first casualty of Bravo Team discovered by the player in the original Resident Evil. After Alpha Team's arrival at the mansion, the player is sent to investigate the sound of a gunshot, leading the player to discover Kenneth being devoured by a zombie. In the GameCube remake, the player can retrieve a video recording of Kenneth's final moments before being devoured, which they are able to play back at a later point of the game.
