Passenger's Diary


July 14th
Orders came from boss today. Looks like we're in charge of investigating the remains 
of the Arklay Mountains laboratory. We're moving in two groups, with us as the intial 
group, assigned to stand checking what's left of the abandoned experiment.

July 16th
Unfortunately,the test production of the B.O.W. (Type -Y139) had to be suspended 
because of this investigation. It's the same with the Type -Y139. There's still so 
much we don't know about responses to the crustacean virus. There's a lot of interesting
research left...Depending on the species and nurturing conditions, only minute 
doses of "T" bring about remarkable changes in solidity, size, multiplication of
internal toxins and brain development. If these effects can be controlled, a weapon
could be produced. But the sudden development of the shell results in corresponding 
fragility. Certain areas become exceedingly weak. Problematically, one of these areas
is the head carapace. This lab we are going to... Were they pursuing the same research?
It would certainly help to find data and samples that help us in our research.

July 19th
The day is finally apporaching.. I am growing more anxious. The Raccoon City newspapers 
and TV stations are full of reports about bizzare murders in the suburbs. It can't be 
the virus, can it? If it is... No, I can't think of that now. I have to concentrate 
on this investigation and make sure it runs smoothly.

into the device in the fifth car. This will supply power to both sets of controls.

Step 2: Enter Rear Deck code Enter the rear deck unit to release the lock. After this, 
the Driver's compartment code can be input.

Step 3: Enter Driver's compartment code
- Enter the code for the Driver's compartment unit to remove the lock. Upon completion 
of these steps, the manual brakes will be available for use. 


================================================== 
Note From The Conductor


The keycard for the driver's compartment is in my bag as always. But I need the other 
guys key too often to open the damn thing. But it looks like I've lost it somewhere. 
If it was a normal key, someone is sure to turn it in, but the key is different. I'll 
look for it too, but it you happen to find it, please hand it in.

Thanks in advance.

Marcus' Diary 1


December 4th
We finally did it....the new virus! We have called it the "Progenitor". I want to 
carry it back and start detailed invesgations immediately. 

March 23th
Spencer says he's going to start a company. Well, I don't care, as long as I can
 continue my research into "Progenitor". He can do what he likes.. 

August 19th
Spencer keeps asking me to be the director of his new training facility. Maybe it 
is because of the business but he is becoming intolerably pushy. But maybe I can 
turn this to my advantage. I need a special facility to properly to explore all 
this virus' secrets. A place where no one will get in the way...

November 30th
Damn that Spencer! He came to complain to me again today. He thinks of "Progenitor" 
as noting more than a money-spinning tool. Fool! But his influence continues to grow, 
it can only be bad for my research. If I'm to properly develop "Progenitor", I must 
strengthen my own position, too.

September 19th
At last..
I've discovered a way to build a new virus type with "Progenitor" as a base. Mixing 
it with leech DNA was a breakthrough I needed.. I call this new virus "T", for "Tyrant".

October 23rd
It's no good! I can't hope for real progress experimenting on mere rodents. Only 
humans can be a proper mammlian subject for the experiments. Otherwise, I will never
get any real progress...

November 15th
Someone seems to suspect something about my experiments...But, perhaps it's just my 
imagination. Well, if anyone does get too close, they may find themselves unexpectedly 
"assisting" in my research!

January 13th
At last, they are ready. My wonderful leeches! Those of low intellgence, they will 
never have the privilege of tasting this sense of joy and satisfaction! Now, finally, 
I can move against Spencer. Soon, I will control everything...

January 31st
The devices I set to protect my work have been disturbed, it appears someone came 
looking for "T" and the leeches. Fool. No doubt it's Spencer's group.

February 11th
Today, I again found evidence of tampering around the entrance to the labs. If that 
is what they're after, I must find a suitable way to deal with them. Perhaps I should
 have William and Albert smoke out the pest.. 

Those two are the only ones I trust. Apart from the beloved leeches, of course, But 
Spencer.. It wouldn't end there.. Would it? I will announce "T" at the next directors 
meeting and collect my just rewards..


================================================== 
Assistant Directors's Diary 


September 2nd
A useless bunch of trainees, as always. Where does headquarters find these idiots? 
We did get a couple of decent ones, though, so can't complain I guess, William and 
Albert, they might have a future.

September 25th
Scholar Will, Pratical Al, They really are opposites. And they are always competitive
in everything they do. There is something useless and cruel about them both..

October 7th
Got a sudden call from the director, it was to tell me to encourage a rival between 
those two! It's the first time since this training facility was built that Director 
Marcus has ever shown interest in anything other than his research. Well, whatever, 
orders are orders. I'm going to have them tearing at each other's throats. 


================================================== 
About Power Regulator


Due to the recent lightning strike, the power regulator continues to be inoperative. 
I wouldn't really matter about the power, except for the fact that the boiler room 
equipment is on the same grid. The equipment is so run down, I'll probably have to 
have it fixed up all the time. If you wish to exit rapidly, set the indicator to 70. 
Check first though that everything is connected to the chain. 


================================================== 
A Verse Of Poetry


The Moon bows to the Earth,
The Earth swears loyalty to the Sun,
And the great Law of the Sun Governs all things,
This itself is the keystone,
The pointer of glory, 
All our hands cannot open the door to heaven.


==================================================
Management Trainee's Diary


What is that Director Marcus is researching all the time? And what's with his weird 
interest in leeches? Interest? Seems more like love at times.. Rumor has it that 
there's something dangerous about those leeches. It is true that when Dennis just 
touched one, he got ill with a fever. 

Again today.. There were those horrible moans. Beyond that door, "let sleeping dogs..." 
No way I'll go near them. Even if the Director tells me, I no way want to end up 
like Dennis. That poor bastard. Scratching and scratching. Makes me itch just 
watching him. 

Must maybe go 

IF can but hwo 

Dennis gone, I go 

Hungry.. 

Help.. 

Mom.

First Investigation Unit Notes 


We are searching the facilities, and it looks like a lot of chemicals survived. 
Fortunately, the storage tanks are still full. We have just started and there is
 still a lot we don't know, but it appears that the chemicals can be mixed to 
produce new substances. The chemicals are scattered all about. Not because of the
accident, more a result of a plain investigation. When we reopen the facilities, 
we have to develop a system for dealing with these chemicals.

(Something is scrawled on the back of the note.)

- Red + Blue = Sulfuric Acid
- Green + Red = Stripping Agent 


================================================== 
Marcus' Diary 2


(This page has been torn out.)

Trouble is unlikely, but I closed my babies up in the special capsule. But it 
won't be safe if I hold it onto myself. I'll hide it in that place. "To hide 
a leaf, put it in a forest"... To open the capsule, the special stripping agent 
is necessary. No way Spencer's lackeys could figure how to make it..

Investigator's Report


Dr. Marcus, Co-founder, with President Spencer, of the Umberella Corporation, 
disappeared 20 years ago. The results of his research have been kept under wraps 
for all that time. The reason became clear here at the Training Facility run by 
Dr. Marcus.. Well, not here exactly, but underground. When we ventured below, we
understood..

There we found evidence of Dr. Marcus' research into the T-Virus prototype called 
"Progenitor". The evidence of years of hideous experiments that used company 
employees as guinea pigs. We cannot know how many were forced to become subjects, 
but based on the evidence, no less than twenty individuals were involved; some of 
them taken deliberately to keep the corporation's secret safe. Where the Doctor is 
now I don't know, but considering the recent rapid growth of the Umbrella Corporation, 
I can't imagine the research is continuing. No..his experiment lives and continues 
to grow in the dark. Those things, the "fruit" of his research, they fill this facility. 

(The rest of the notebook pages are missing). 


================================================== 
Leech Growth Records


February 3rd, 1978.
- Administrated "T" into 4 leeches. Their will to survive leads them first to 
parasitism and predation, then they breed and mulitply. Such single minded biology 
makes them attractive candidates for bioweapons research. Afterwards, no major changes
observed.

February 10th, 1978.
- 7 days since the adminstration of the "T". Rapid growth to double former size, signs 
of tranformation emerging. Spawning successful, they double their numbers in an hour, 
but their ravenous appetites lead them to cannibalism. Hastened to incease food supply, 
but lost 2.

March 7th, 1978.
- Provided them with live feed, but lost half when the live food fought back. However, 
the leeches are learning from experience, and are beginning to exhibit group attack 
behavior. They are also ceasing cannibalism. Their evolution is exceeding expectations.

April 22nd, 1978.
- The leeches no longer exhibit individual behavior, even when not feeding, they move as
a collective. They consume everything I offer with remarkable efficiency.

- April 30th,1978.
An employee has stumbled onto my experiments. Can a human be a food source? How will the 
leeches respond?

June 3rd,1978
- A day worthy of commemoration. Today they began to mimic me! Surely they recognize 
their father.. Wonderful children, No one will take you away.. 


==================================================
Laboratory Manager's Diary


Today, under Director Marcus' orders, I changed the platform entry code. Later I asked 
him what the source of the entry code was. He told me it was based on something 
significant in his childrens growth. But, the Director is a loner, he isn't married 
and he sure doesn't have any children.. 

What could he mean? 


================================================== 
BOW Report


Research to date has shown that when the Progenitor virus is administrated to living 
organisms, violent celluar changes cause a breakdown in the system, Furthermore, no 
satisfactory method has been found to control the organisms for use as weapons. 
Clearly, greater co-ordination at the cellular level is essential to enable further 
growth. I conducted a number of experiments in an effort to find a breakthrough. This 
is my report:

Insecta
- Perhaps because of these ancient animals have been genetically stable for millenia, 
when administered with the progenitor virus they exhibited only explosive high-energy 
growth and increased aggressivness. It is extremely difficult to envision using them 
as a BOW. 

Amphibia
- Injecting a frog with the virus resulted in an increase in leaping power and abnormal 
tongue growth. However, no change in mental ability is observed. Furthermore, an abnormal 
resulted in the test subject randomly attacking all moving objects. Usefulness for BOW is 
limited.

Mammalia
- The progenitor virus was merged with the monkey's cellular DNA, resulting in an increase
in fertility. The resulting young exhibited improved aggressiveness and some increased 
mental capacity. (As a side effect, the visual power was lost, but this offset by an 
improvment in hearing ability). However, they were unsatisfactory as weapons. It does 
seem that no progress can be made without making humans as the base organism. 


==================================================
About Battery Fluid 


Battery Fluid
- The fluid used in batteries is a diluted solution of mixed water and sulfuric acid. 
Both must be of high purity. When fully charged, battery fluid should have specific 
gravity of 1,280 + 0.010 at 20 degrees.

Battery Acid Purity
- Take care that dilute sulfuric acid solution is of sufficient purity. 


================================================== 
Investigator's Report 2


We should have finished with this dump long ago. When this is all started, did anyone 
expect that there would be guns blazing away like this? We weren't told a thing about 
creatures attacking us at the briefing.. Guess they were a surprise to the head honchos 
too. The things in the woods.. just starting attacking people. That had to be planned. 
Someone deliberately scattered that virus, no doubt about it. But the guards, our fellow 
soldiers, they must be still around.. Well, whatever. Don't have to worry about that 
anymore. What I've got to worry about whether to use the last bullet on myself, or on a 
friend..

That's the only decision I have to make. 


==================================================
Treatment Plant Manager's Diary


5/10. 
- Damn it! Why is normal industrial waste being delivered here? This is an Umberella 
Coporation facility. We can't deal with this volume of material. Plus they're sending 
us contaminated materials that we can't process. What are we supposed to do with it?

7/24.
- Well, looks like they're closing it down. Not surprising, using it like they did. 
Had to be done, but.. It was pretty sudden. It's not like they cared until now. Anyway,
as long as I get out of here, I don't care what they do.
