Michaela Schneider, codename 'Bertha', is a playable character on the side of the Umbrella Security Service (U.S.S.) from Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. She hails from Germany as an experienced solider with a background in medicine who was recruited by the Umbrella Corporation after having trouble readjusting to civilian life. Her role in the U.S.S. Delta Team is the medic, and she sees to keeping her fellow teammates alive but not necessarily comfortable.
Bertha makes no attempt to hide her sadism throughout the campaign, often using casual tones to discuss the U.S.S.'s mission of espionage and assassination. Or in the case of witnessing people left behind to be eaten by zombies as something that "looks like fun." Due to her particular tastes, she keeps a level head in the face of the outbreak sweeping over Raccoon City.
As the medic, Bertha focuses on keeping other teammates healthy and free of viral infection through use of extra health items and better healing from green herbs and First Aid Sprays. Passive and Active abilities are unlocked and upgraded by experience.
