What do Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield do after the events of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness? Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield were featured at the Resident Evil 2 video game, where they both experienced the horrors of the Raccoon City incident in 1998. Since then, both characters have devoted all their efforts to investigating and combating biohazard threats, with Leon saving President Graham’s daughter Ashley in Resident Evil 4 and Claire joined TerraSave before the events of Resident Evil: Degeneration.
One year after coming together to stop an outbreak of the T virus in Degeneration, Leon and Claire work together to investigate an attack on the White House and some suspicious zombie sightings in Penamstan. It turns out that Secretary Wilson is behind a conspiracy to unleash the zombie virus around the world and blame China for instigating and profiting from war. Fortunately, Leon and Claire stop a tyrant from causing a mass panic and convince President Graham not to make a hasty decision that could plunge the world into a virus-fueled catastrophe.

After the end of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, Claire and Leon separate. Claire is captured by Alex Wesker and taken to Sejm Island in the Baltic. There, he manages to flee and defend himself from some of the infected. She infiltrates Wesker’s base after escaping another attack, and in the typical Demonic resident fashion, hardly escapes the self-destructive structure. Claire continues to work with TerraSave, which takes her to the Carrot and Tortoise Islands in the Caribbean three years later. While investigating Alex Wesker’s facility, she defeats a mutated double agent and leaves to inform her brother Chris of the incident.
Leon meets Claire’s brother Chris a few years after the events of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, something that becomes important to the plot of resident Evil 6. But first, Leon embarks on a dangerous one-man mission in the East Slavic Republic, where he briefly teams up with Ada Wong and helps discover the person who released the parasite “Plague” in the country. resident Evil 6 presents a dark mirror to Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, as Leon is forced to kill an infected President Benford and go to China to try to stop the virus. Along with Chris Redfield and a fake Ada Wong (Carla Radames in disguise), Leon manages to survive an encounter with a heavily mutated terrorist and prevent the C virus from wreaking havoc across the world.
Finally, Leon Kennedy is once again joined by Chris Redfield, and original Demonic resident protagonist Rebecca Chambers – To prevent black market dealer Glenn Arias from unleashing the A virus in New York. Leon slays off waves of zombies, saves Chris from being killed by a mutated Arias, and stops the terrorist attack before setting off with Chris and Rebecca on their next mission. Evidently, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is an important event in the RE timeline, but for seasoned characters like Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, it’s part of the course.
