Pilots in the military are seen as the elite and if you lose flight qualifications and can no longer fly any job you are given will feel like a demotion even though you keep the same rank. Chris is no longer a pilot, no longer elite, just a soldier now.
i always get the feeling chris is the kind of you guy you might not like, maybe 'cause he's a super serious dude and not a witty character like leon, but you respect him anyway, and you can't help but feel he deserves said respect.

I actually like Chris because he's the most human of the bunch next to his sister. Jill hasn't grown and is criminally boring. Leon is likable, but I can't really relate to him because he acts like a tamer version of Dante. Chris shows emotion, lets his anger affect his decision making, and is sometimes reckless.

they needed us to know something wasn't quite right because carla wears blue and ada wears red (this is for people who played the game without knowing there were two 'ada's), and chris was also so deep in his rage and emotions, he didn't even pay attention. he saw ada, he chased after her. he couldn't care less about her clothes.
Even if Chris had noticed it, stating that she changed clothes would have been pointless. He was chasing blue Ada, red Ada looked exactly like her and he had no indication that something may have been up simply because she apparently changed her clothing. I doubt anyone in Chris's situation would have noticed and even if they did, they wouldn't have cause to bring it up due to most people not being willing to entertain the possibility that
Anyways, I wouldn't say any of the protagonists in the series are dumb, they just make dumb, spur of the moment decisions. Doing things like punching a boulder sounds stupid, but hey, it worked.
Quite a lot of the antagonists are, though. Or at least they give off that impression. And to think a lot of them are described as geniuses in their files and such.

Combat ability and being a poor soldier has nothing to do with mental smarts. Many valedictorian ivy league graduates would probably panic if put into that kind of situation. Being brave and staying calm 'has nothing to do with intelligence.

Did you read my first sentence. Dont go correcting me because you dont have much to correct. By all means stick up for Ashley, butcher Leon and Chris but the obvious facts show that they are very intelligent....are you going to say that Hunnigan has ADHD next?

I think that's part of it, he is always so serious and not very social. He needs to lighten up a bit. Leon has seen countless die and is serious sometimes and sometimes not. Chris needs to lighten up before he has a stress attack.
