Kennedy is part of the group invited to the White House and charged with investigating this situation. However, after a mysterious accident, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to face a horde of zombies. Meanwhile Claire Redfield, a member of TerraSave, is obsessed with the drawing made by a child she met abroad, when she was busy helping refugees who were there. The drawing seems to represent the victim of a mysterious viral infection, so much so that Claire begins to investigate the thing.
The next morning, Claire visits the White House to request that a relief facility be built. There she meets up with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize that there is some sort of connection between the zombie outbreak in the White House and the strange pattern, even though he tells Claire that there is no relationship. Over time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant lands lead to events that will shake the nation to its very foundations.
