Egotastic writes: Chris Redfield narrowly qualifies for a protagonist in Resident Evil’s peculiar character-switcheroo universe. He was present at the exemplary opening of the series, and continues to prominently feature today. (The man’s dubious appeal seems eternal, like a remarkably resilient case of crabs. Redfield is indeed the ball-itch that never goes away. Alas, no amount of antibiotics to the penis will expunge this tedious meathead.) I’ve noticed, though, an odd process of metamorphosis taking place as the series advances. Not in the character-development department (he exudes all the personality of a skid mark, as ever), but something rather more insidious and disturbing.
