Type of Hero
Andre Pena has voiced the Character of Luis Sera. He has been a fan favourite survivor of the Resident series since he was introduced in the original Resident Evil 4. The Remake revamps and showcases more of the Luis Sera character in the game as he is in more scenes and has more screen time now.
Luis Sera aids Leon in his journey to save Ashley from the cult leader Osmund Saddler while his mysterious backstory comes to light bit by bit. This time, Luis Sera’s role has changed a lot, providing him with more Character and playing a more vital role in the main storyline of Resident Evil 4 Remake.
Luis Sera Navarro grew up in the same Village as Resident Evil 4’s setting. Raised by his grandfather after losing his mother at birth, he later ventured out to establish his reputation. He enrolled in a public university, where he pursued a career as a biologist.
Luis gained fame, leading to employment with the Umbrella Corporation. He eventually joined the Umbrella Europe Laboratory’s Team Six, responsible for overseeing the Nemesis project. This project shared similarities with the Plaga virus, which hijacked the host’s body.
However, Luis grew disillusioned with Umbrella’s work and resigned. During the Racoon trials, when the government sought those linked to Racoon City’s destruction, they pursued Luis. By then, he had retreated to his remote Village of Valdelobos.
Role In Game
Luis Sera shows up as an ex-researcher for the umbrella cooperation, and because of that, Leon is mistrustful of him at first. Leon saves him from Mendez when he is tied up in the game’s early chapters. As the game progresses, Leon also begins to trust his words, and Luis aids Leon on many occasions. Leon has the company of Luis During boss fights, protecting a cabin and a very thrilling cart ride.
The main reason why Luis is essential is that He has also worked on the Las Plagas virus and knows about it a lot. Due to this, he can also give Leon and Ashley medicine to suppress the virus’s spread and effects on them. Luis is also vital to the game as he has access to his laboratory, which plays a crucial part in the survival of Ashley and Leon.
He also helps Leon with much of the knowledge about the virus and the overall situation of the whole cult of Los Illuminados.
Knowledge of Las Plagas Virus: Luis possesses extensive knowledge of the Las Plagas virus, offering crucial assistance to Leon and Ashley by providing medicine to suppress the virus’s effects.
Access to Laboratory: Luis has access to his laboratory, which plays a vital role in the survival of Ashley and Leon.
Assistance During Boss Fights: Luis accompanies Leon during boss fights, such as protecting a cabin and a thrilling cart ride, providing support and guidance.
Background Information: Luis offers valuable information about the virus and the cult of Los Illuminados, aiding Leon in understanding the situation they face.
Even in his final moments, he retains his sense of humour and jokes about his death by saying, “And such a loss to the ladies of the world.”. He then proceeds to give Leon the key to his laboratory. Luis tells Leon to help Ashley by removing the parasites. He also starts to light up a cigarette but fails to ignite the lighter.
Leon lets him fire up the cigarette, and Luis starts talking about his life. Luis mentions how he led a very shitty life but then asks Leon if Leon can say that people can change as he talks about himself. Luis then sadly passes away. The cigarette falls from his mouth, and Leon puts his lighter back in his dead hands.
Luis Sera is a very mysterious character at the start of the game, which keeps the player guessing whose side he is on. But later in the game, you realize how much of a fun character he is. There are many things Capcom has changed from the original to the Remake about the Character of Luis Sera in the game.
They did the character justice with a lot more backstory on him. As well as some chapters about him being a companion of Leon.
Sadly the journey of Luis Sera with Leon is small. He will probably not appear in any of the Resident Evil series now. But he remains a perfect side character with a lot of fan love on his side.
