Resident Evil 1.5
As with many projects, the Resident Evil series had gone through many transformations throughout development. One of the more noteable instances came during the development of Resident Evil 2. Due to issues with the games tension and pacing being drastically different from the first installment, Resident Evil 1.5 was scrapped entirely. Elza Walker, a random Racoon City college student, was replaced by Claire Redfield, sister of Resident Evil protagonist Chris. The male lead, rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy, remained the same, save for an overhaul of the character model.
