The original Resident Evil revolves around a series of cannibalistic homicides that occur in the Arklay Mountains region, situated north of the fictional Raccoon City in 1998. The local police's Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.) are commissioned to investigate the sources of these murders. When Bravo Team, the initial team deployed to the area, fails to report back, Alpha Team goes on a rescue mission to find them; what they find are the mutilated bodies of some of the Bravo team, and a horde of freakish creatures. They are led to a seemingly abandoned mansion, where the team encounters zombies and other creatures, where they discover the rest of their comrades in the house. In the end, it is revealed that the house is actually a front for a top-secret laboratory owned by the international Umbrella Corporation, and that the creatures are the result of experiments with a genetically modified virus called the T-Virus. Due to an accident there was an out break of the T-Virus. The mother virus from which the T-Virus was developed, was discovered by three men; Edward Ashford, James Marcus and Ozwell E. Spencer. Resident Evil 0 explores the cause of the viral outbreak and Bravo Team's ordeal prior to the events of the Mansion incident.

Chris and Jill in the 2002 GameCube remake of the original Resident Evil.The following game, Resident Evil 2, takes place two months after the events of the original game in Raccoon City itself. With S.T.A.R.S. unable to convict Umbrella for their wrongdoings, the company continues their experiments within an underground facility. However, a botched attempt to steal a former scientist's (William Birkin) work results in the T-Virus being leaked into the city's sewers and Birkin being infected by the new G-Virus. The T-Virus is spread by rats and most of the city's population become zombies, leaving only a few survivors trying to find a way to escape the city alive. The third game, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, is set during the same time period as Resident Evil 2, and features a similar premise. Nemesis, a creature created by Umbrella, is sent into the remains of Racoon city to eliminate the remaining members of the S.T.A.R.S. unit. The game concludes its story by depicting the city's ultimate destruction by a nuclear warhead. The Resident Evil: Outbreak series depicts the attempts of normal civilians trying to escape the city.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica depicts the previous games' survivors attempt to expose the Umbrella corporation and sabotage their operations. Code: Veronica reveals the existence of a rival corporation, who employs Albert Wesker, the crooked leader of the S.T.A.R.S. and a former Umbrella researcher himself, also developing their own bio-weapons. Resident Evil: Survivor and Resident Evil: Dead Aim depicts similar attempts to overthrow Umbrella.

Set six years after the events of the previous games, Resident Evil 4 begins with the dissolution of Umbrella Corporation. The focus is on a religious cult known as Los Iluminados that uses a breed of ancient parasites known as Las Plagas (The Plagues) to turn victims into mind-controlled psychopaths known as "Ganados". The same Organization seen in Code: Veronica also plays a role in Resident Evil 4, by having two of their agents attempt to steal a specialized sample of the parasite for their disposal.
