Lazarus is a character from the game Evolve that is brought by Turtle Rock Studios, the company that also made the famous Left 4 Dead games. Lazarus is a pretty unique character in Evolve. Although he is a medic, he doesn't heal his fellow Hunters directly. What does that mean? That means Lazarus doesn't heal his comrades while fighting. This is what makes him unique. He doesn't heal his comrades while fighting; he heals his comrades when they're dead. Lazarus' real name is Ðorde Živkovic and he was born on Io, but can not return because he is now a renegade. He was a veteran of the 3rd Mutagen War. Right now, he is a Hub citizen. Lazarus invented his illegal and signature Lazarus Device to cover up horrible excuses for bad medics during a war, which everyone opposes against. Lazarus' device can practically resurrect any allies even if they're technically are gonna be like "nice-good-under-control-zombies". Lazarus doesn't leave himself defenseless. Lazarus brings his Silenced Rifle that is automatic and marks weak spots on the target of the Hunters, the Monsters. Lazarus also brings the medic class' signature Healing Burst that heals himself and nearby teammates for a partial amount of health. Lazarus also brings a Personal Cloak that can make himself invinsible. Lazarus might deal very low amount of damages, but he is surely effective at getting downed teammates back in their legs with full health.

In-Game Bio

"Born on Io, now a citizen of the Hub, and a veteran of the third Mutagen War. Lazarus is now part of the Hunters that are hired to destroy Monsters on the planet Shear. Lazarus may be a near-defenseless medic, but his (illegal) Lazarus Device can resurrect anyone who is downed or incapacitated. Lazarus purposely lets his comrades die to get them back in shape through resurrection. Lazarus' Silenced Sniper Rifle is not really deadly, but still marks the target with weak points. Lazarus also brings his Personal Cloak and Healing Burst to give a great edge to the hunters. Although his Lazarus Device is still questionable even when SHIELD allows him to be in the team..."
