Timothy Cain is German by descent and speaks with a German accent. His family immigrated to the United States, and Cain became very loyal to the US. To show his loyalty, he joined the US Army as an officer. He fought in the First Gulf War and was quickly promoted to Captain. He had a reputation for getting things done, and so earned the nickname "Able". However, he believed in the philosophy of "life is cheap" and wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice his troops in order to fulfill the requirements of his mission. He didn't connect with the majority of the soldiers under his command, and only made one warbuddy.
After the war, Cain was hired by Umbrella and transferred his loyalty to them, aided significantly by a much fatter paycheck. He led one of Umbrella's mercenary companies as a Major (allegedly the U.B.C.S., but this is probably a movie error) and was responsible for preventing people from entering or leaving Raccoon City (shooting innocent civilians trying desperately to escape), and also for testing out some BOWs.
More of a thinker than a fighter, Cain hasn't fought hand-to-hand in years. He discovered a traitor to Umbrella (a valuable scientist at that) but didn't hesitate to execute him in order to intimidate a party of adventurers.
He was himself tricked and discovered, too late, that there was a life he didn't consider cheap. His own.
