Arthur is a no nonsense type of person, his past lending to him having a very serious and goal oriented demeanor. When on the job he tends to put his team, and the mission before all other considerations. Bio
Arthur was born the son of a Marine in Chicago, he grew up as a typical military brat and it was no surprise to anyone when the first thing he wanted to do after high school was join the military.
What did come as a surprise was the path and branch he decided to take. His above average grades in high school and a glowing recommendation from a U.S. Army Colonel insured that he was granted and Army scholarship for college. Where he majored in Art History, even though anyone who knew him would have been able to tell you that what he was really majoring in was U.S. Army ROTC(Reserve Officer Training Corps).
As soon as he graduated his commission with the Army was activated and he served as a leader of men.
8 years later he left the Army, due in part to military budget cutbacks, and began looking for a job in which he could put his skills to good use. It wasn't long after this that he was approached by Albert Wesker, the RPD's new 'head of special police forces.' The man told Arthur about S.T.A.R.S. and assured him of his acceptance to a position leading one of the RPD's S.T.A.R.S. teams should he apply... And so it wasn't long before Arthur was given command of the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team, Wesker's old position, and was leading his team on successful mission after successful mission. Equipment

Kevin is an all-around good guy, he is a dyed-in-the-wool optimist, and will rarely get hung up on petty matters. Kevin has been known to be a chatty individual often making jokes about nearly any situation he and his team are in. Despite this seemingly carefree attitude anyone who knows Kevin well will tell you that he genuinely cares about his job and is a police officer for no other reason than his desire to help others and do good in the world. Bio
Kevin was born and raised in Raccoon City, and even since early childhood he always wanted to be a cop. During high school he demonstrated an average amount of intelligence and a highly above average aptitude for most forms of physical activity. As soon as he obtained the required number of college credit hours Kevin applied for and was accepted to the RPD's police academy. Where he graduated in the top 10% of his class.
Kevin's obvious skill along with his personal dedication and drive to help others brought him to the attention of Police Chief Brian Irons, who eagerly accepted him into the RPD's SWAT unit. Kevin served in SWAT for 4 years before deciding to try out for the, then newly formed, S.T.A.R.S. unit. While his friendly and casual personality has succeed in making him many friends within the rank and file officers of the RPD it actually worked against him during the application process. As illustrated by the fact that Kevin failed the S.T.A.R.S. the selection process twice. With his "lack of professional conduct & bearing" listed as a contributing factor to both of his two failures.
On his third try Kevin was finally accepted onto the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team, thanks in part to a letter of recommendation from his SWAT team's sergeant, and the personal intervention of Alpha team's leader. Equipment
