Charles Burr was an Umbrella researcher who then joined the Steel Chariots bioterrorist organization as one of its lead researchers. He was in charge of the Jötunheimr laboratory on an unnamed island in the Atlantic Ocean, and was the first lead scientist of the Steel Chariots to experiment with the Hyper-evolution virus.
Partnered with Eric Lee, Charles Burr was tasked with observing Dominic Wesker of Project W, under the supervision of Craig Silverman. Dom was injected with the prototype virus, just like the Wesker children before him, and his body responded negatively to the virus. Instead of dying, however, the child fell into comatose. Regardless, Spencer and Silverman marked Dom for termination, and gave Lee the task. During the Raccoon City Outbreak, however, Burr discovered that Lee feigned eliminating the child, who turned out to be alive and well as Lee's adopted son, and reported his findings to Silverman.
When Umbrella Corporation fell in 2003, Silverman formed a bioterrorist organization called the Steel Chariots. Loyal to Silverman, Burr joined the organization, and became one of its head researchers. In the year 2005, Burr discovered the location of Dom, which was at a small city named Tatamy, and released several hunters into the community. The hunters infected several people they attacked, starting an outbreak. Several hunters were able to locate Dom and then took him to the Jötunheimr laboratory on an unnamed island in the Atlantic Ocean. Burr was able to obtain the Hyper-evolution virus (HEV) from Dom's blood and used it to created bioweapons for the Steel Chariots.
Many of the bioweapons were ready in three months. With Silverman's permission, Burr sent a cargo ship of Draugr and Wargs to the United Kingdom, releasing the bioweapons on a coastal city to test their effectiveness. Sure enough, the bioweapons were able to cause a good amount of destruction. While the cargo ship was on its way back to Jötunheimr, Burr was notified that the ship had been invaded by a pair of BSAA agents - Jane Bradstreet and Ruby Knight. In an effort to stop the agents, Burr sent the Lyngbakr, a shark-based bioweapon, after the ship. Through a camera attached to the Lyngbakr, Burr saw the creature sink the ship, but also saw the agents seemingly kill the giant shark. Although he thought it was likely that the agents were dead, Burr decided to release several bioweapons to patrol the outside of Jötunheimr. Burr's paranoia eventually proved to work in his favor; the BSAA agents had survived the Lyngbakr attack and were on his island fighting off his bioweapons. Just outside the laboratory building, a security camera caught both agents being overwhelmed by multiple Wargs.A few hours later, Burr was notified that Jane had freed Dom from his cell. To prevent their escape, Burr locked down all of Jötunheimr's doors and periodically released more bioweapons after the pair. While Jane and Dom fought against the creatures that were sent after them, Tony Wesker infiltrated Jötunheimr's control room and shot all personnel, including Burr. Although his subordinates have died, Burr was clinging on to what little life he had, and watched his murderer take an HEV sample. Out of desperation, Burr injected himself with a special strain of HEV he had in his pocket and then mutated into a special form of Draugr, looking similar to one, but possessing significantly greater speed. Burr was unable to stop Tony Wesker from escaping, however, and remained in the control room and ate the corpses of his subordinates, using the ingested biomass to mutate further, developing a centaur-esque body structure. He was eventually discovered by Jane and Dom, who cooperatively took him down. The defeated Burr remained collapsed, but alive and conscious, on the ground, until Dom mercilessly ignited him with a flamethrower, inducing an agonizing death.
The mutated Charles Burr is the sixth boss of Resident Evil: Hyper-Evolution, appearing in Chapter 5-2. Burr has 14,000 HP on Normal difficulty, 28,000 HP on Veteran difficulty, and 140,000 HP on Professional difficulty, and his weak spot is his head.
