Resident Evil game cover

Ok, didn't come up with any topic related to this so I might as well make it since I've been curious about one thing:
What exactly is the original Resident Evil game cover about?!
This may seem like a pointless question but I've searched all over the internet and can't seem to get a clear answer.
Who's the guy in the cover anyways?
At first I thought it was Kennet J. Sullivan since he's holding a shotgun but he's not wearing his bandana so it couldn't be him.
It couldn't be Richard Aiken cuz he's on Bravo Team and not Alpha.
I can see 2 spiders in the background but can't decipher what's above them, if anything.
The whole thing doesn't relate to what the game is about.
Anyone got any ideas?

based on the clothing, here's my suggestion.

Joseph Frost - http://residentevil.wikia.com/wiki/Joseph_Frost

Hmmmm, well the clothes do match and apparently I got Joseph and Kenneth mixed up since I thought Kenny had the bandana but in the cover he's not wearing it.
Idk, I guess I'm trying to get some sense out of nothing but it's probably cuz nowadays most game covers have some sort of relevance to the game itself instead of being ambigious?

It was probably just some concept art that they ended up liking so much that they decided to go with it for the cover. It clearly isn't anyone in the actual game as they exist in their final version. I always assumed it was a concept drawing of Chris.

That was my early presumption of the guy in the cover but after some scrutinizing I just couldn't get it in my head to accept it was him.
Well, I guess we'll just say it's some random dude that never made it into the game?

I've got it - maybe Bravo Team had a work experience kid with them when they went into the mansion, but by the time you get there with Alpha Team, he's already dead. You know, because work experience kids are useless and all. But by some freak chance, old workie made it onto the cover of the game...
