    1. Introduction
    ---------------
    The world famous Resident Evil Series by Capcom continues, but this time, 
    the timeline moves all the way back to the beginning. This is when all 
    it began, the Mansion Incident. Many documents found throughout the game 
    can give you more insight into the history of Umbrella. Resident Evil Zero 
    is a game that was first was announced in the late 1990s, about 1999 or
    2000, I think, when Resident Evil 2 for the Super Nintendo 64 was released.
    
    However, for some strange reason, the project was cancelled silently. But 
    now, Capcom decided to release the game exclusively for the Nintendo 
    Gamecube. This game has many dazzling new features, including the all new 
    player zapping system, where you can switch between characters in a blink 
    of an eye, as well as the absence of item boxes, so you can drop items 
    anywhere you desire. Well, I must say, Capcom has done it big time for 
    Nintendo, and this can further encourage people to go buy a Gamecube.

    3. Story
    ---------------
    It was July 1998, many freak murder incidents occurred in Raccoon Forest, 
    in the outskirts of Raccoon city. To investigate the murders, the Raccoon
    Police Department sent in the STARS Bravo team to investigate.
    
    Unfortunately, the team experienced engine trouble and had to touch down 
    in Raccoon Forest. Everyone survived the accident, but nearby, there was 
    an overturned MP Vehicle. 18-year old Rookie Rebecca Chambers discovered 
    that the vehicle was transporting a Navy Lieutenant Billy Coen for 
    execution. Therefore, Enrico Marini ordered the entire team to separate 
    to search for this villain. At the same time, one of the helicopter pilots 
    called Kevin stayed in the helicopter to contact the headquarters. (he 
    was found to be mauled and killed in the opening FMV of Resident Evil.) 
    Rebecca followed his orders, and started to inspect a train that stopped 
    on the rails somewhere near the crash site. This was when her adventure 
    begins.
    
    ---------------
    4. Characters
    ---------------
    Although this is the game for STARS Bravo Team, only Rebecca Chambers, 
    Enrico Marini and Edward Dewey had actually said something. No one else 
    got a line! Apart from this, only Enrico and Edward will be met, hence 
    only these 3 members of the STARS Bravo Team will be introduced. I must 
    really feel sorry for Kenneth and Forest. They arrive, and did not even 
    say a word. The next time you see them, they are dead.
    
    ---------------
    Rebecca Chambers
    ---------------
    The 18 year old child prodigy medic is one of the star players in the game 
    (no pun intended). She is rather short for an 18-year old, and still behaves 
    quite immaturely, typical of many geniuses. She can mix herbs while Billy 
    cannot. However, she has many bad attributes. For instance, just one zombie 
    bite and she is in Yellow Caution. In this game, she again is a bad piano 
    player, and now I know why so many people hate Rebecca.
    
    ---------------
    Billy Coen
    ---------------
    New File! Court Order for Transportation
    Court Order for Transportation 1598A-7635
    Prisoner name: Billy Coen
    ID Number: D-1036
    Former Second Lieutenant,
    Marine Corps
    Age: 26
    Height: 5ft. 9in.
    Weight: 163 lbs.
    Transfer Destination:
    Regarthon Base
    Convicted of First Degree Murder. Court marshaled and sentenced to death 
    by the 0703rd Military Tribunal.
    Sentenced to be carried out upon arrival.
    Samuel Regan,
    Commander,
    Dunell Marine Base
    
    Explanation: The 2nd star player of the game. Billy, aged in the twenties, 
    is accused to have murdered 23 people somewhere in Africa while being in 
    the Marines. As he was transported, the MP van had an accident and he was 
    left in the wild. I like this character, mainly because of his longer HP 
    meter. He can take 4 zombie bites before he is in Caution, good for those 
    zombie-brawlers out there. (including me. Heh heh.) He can also take a 
    very big beating, and yet is still in Green Fine. Therefore, I would suggest 
    letting Billy take all the strain whenever possible, then you can save 
    a lot of healing items in the long run.
    
    ---------------
    Enrico Marini
    ---------------
    The Captain of STARS Bravo Team, Enrico is more high-spirited when compared 
    to Resident Evil. Although he is the captain, Rebecca only met him once 
    and only once in the entire game, and never saw him again.
    
    ---------------
    Edward Dewey
    ---------------
    The co-pilot of Bravo Team. Resident Evil fans now finally get to get a 
    glimpse of his face. He was eventually killed by Cerberus dogs. But as 
    his dead body still has both hands, we can conclude that the hand Joseph 
    Frost found in the forest in the RE original is not Edward's.
    
    ---------------
    Albert Wesker
    ---------------
    The leader of the entire STARS. He works for Umbrella, even before he joined 
    STARS. His desertion of Umbrella can be seen in the middle of the game, 
    and he revealed that he really would lure the STARS Alpha team to the 
    mansion.
    
    ---------------
    William Birkin
    ---------------
    He is a researcher genius who developed the G-virus from the T-virus. Along 
    with Albert Wesker, he was watching the actions of Rebecca and Billy from 
    behind the scenes until a man dressed like the messiah repeatedly gave 
    threats to them. I was surprised that he did not even try to stop Albert 
    Wesker from leaving Umbrella. His sticky end can be found in RE2.
    
    ---------------
    James Marcus
    ---------------
    From the files scattered around the game, I find that he was the Co-founder 
    of Umbrella along with Lord Spencer. Being the first general manager of 
    the Umbrella Training Facility, he broke his own rules and attempt to use 
    his T-virus research to control Umbrella. That's why Spencer had to 
    assassinate him to maintain the company discipline. Poor guy, he was killed 
    by the ones he trusted the most, Albert Wesker and William Birkin.
    
    Some more information on James Marcus can be found in this EX File from 
    the Nintendo 64 version of Resident Evil 2. It briefly portrays him as 
    a person who abused his power while he was a chief researcher.
    
    EX File! Mother Virus Report
    The Mother Virus was first discovered by Ozwell E. Spencer. And it was 
    him, who founded Umbrella Inc.. As time passed, Spencer's research was 
    succeeded to Dr. J. Marcus. However, Dr. Marcus abused his power and had 
    to be fired.
    
    Following Dr. Marcus came Dr. William Birkin. Dr. Birkin's experiments 
    delivered many outstanding results including the T-virus. It is presumed 
    that that he will be finishing work on the more powerful G-virus in the 
    near future.
    
    Currently, research on the Mother Virus takes place at our laboratories 
    all over the world. In the near future, we hope to discover many new viruses.

    5. Basics
    ---------------
    Button Configuration Type A:
    A: Open doors, examine surroundings, shoot while in Attack Stance
    B: Hold while pushing the control stick or Directional Pad forward to run,
    Cancel Selection
    C: Control Partner character manually
    X: Switch Character
    Y: Status Screen
    Z: Show Map
    Control Stick or Directional Pad: Press up to move in the direction the
    character is facing, press down to backtrack, press left and right to rotate
    character
    R: Attack Stance
    L: Unused
    START: Switch between Solo and Team stances
    
    Ammo usage:
    As in many survival horror games, there are fewer handgun bullets relative 
    to the enemies that are found in the game, so you must conserve ammo, and 
    try to avoid zombies that you don't have to kill! However, I found out 
    that ammo is only an issue in the earlier parts of the game, as stronger 
    weapons like the shotgun become available, you can act as the exterminator, 
    and kill anything that gets in your way.
    
    Different Roles:
    Rebecca can mix herbs, but will drop to Yellow Caution in only one zombie 
    bite! So she should almost always be the medic. Billy has a larger HP meter, 
    so he can be the fighter. In this game, each character can carry 6 items, 
    totaling to 12, so this game may seem easier. However, because there is 
    no longer any Item Box, be sure to only take what you need when changing 
    areas. Be informed that this game does not like backtrackers. When you 
    return to an earlier spot, there will most likely be more zombies there. 
    So take what you need!
    
    Health System:
    Green Fine: 75% - 100% Health
    Yellow Caution: 50% - 75% Health
    Orange Caution: 25% - 50% Health
    Red Danger: 0% - 25% Health
    Purple Poison: Health slowly drops
    Green Herbs can heal about 25% health. Blue Herbs heal poison, and Red
    Herbs, when combined with Green Herbs can heal full health, so can First 
    Aid Sprays.
    
    Files:
    Files contain many clues to how to solve many puzzles in the mansion, so 
    always pick them up if you are a beginner. However, if you are trying to 
    complete the game in less than 3 hours, skip all files, and try to memorize 
    the solutions to the puzzles.

    6. Rebecca and Billy's Scenario
    --------------------------------
    "A Midwestern town in America. Raccoon City.
    
    A solitary island far off in the sea. Rock Fort Island.
    
    An island that would become the second Raccoon City. Sheena Island.
    
    There are still a lot of questions about these seemingly unrelated, yet 
    traumatic events. Though it is believed that the international enterprise 
    Umbrella is somehow involved, little is known about the origin of this 
    faceless corporation.
    
    When was it established. By whom?
    
    And, how was the T-Virus created.
    
    To uncover the truth, we must dwell deeper in the events that have 
    transpired in the beginning. Before the mansion incident."
    
    It was about 8:00pm on July 14, 1998. A certain passenger train was moving 
    along the railways of the Arklay Mountains. The passengers are all in a 
    cherry mood.
    
    Meanwhile, on a high cliff overlooking the railway, a man dressed as the 
    messiah stretches out his arms. A passenger (with an Umbrella badge) 
    notices some splatting sounds. Suddenly, a leech jumps and sticks to the 
    window, revealing its teeth. A lot of leeches then stick to the windows, 
    casuing the man to urn away screaming.
    
    Meanwhile, many more leeches storm into the train, killing everyone, 
    including the drivers of the train. Meanwhile, the train speeds on and 
    grinds to a halt.
    
    After the FMV with the passengers of the train being killed by the leeches,
    STARS Bravo team will land near the train. 
    
    "Check your current position and investigate the surrounding area," 
    S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team captain Enrico Marini ordered.
    
    Rebecca notices an M.P. van.
    
    "Captain! Look!"
    
    The Bravo Team moves forward to check the M.P. van with slime dripping 
    off it, to find a lot of dead bodies, and a file about a prisoner known 
    as Billy Coen.
    
    "Court order for transportation. Prisoner, Billy Coen. Ex-lieutenant 26 
    years old. Court-martialed and sentenced to death July 22nd. Prisoner to 
    be transported to the Regathorn Base for execution."
    
    Edward Dewey grabs the file. "Those poor soldiers, they were good men just 
    doing their job, and that scum murdered them and escaped."
    
    "All right, everyone, let's separate and survey the area. Our friend is 
    brutal and vicious. Keep your guard up," Enrico orders.
    
    Rebecca enters the train on the tracks nearby, and
    "The door to safety is shut, there is no turning back..."
    
    *****TRAIN*****
    --------------------
    Dark Passenger Car
    --------------------
    Go through the door to Rebecca's left.
    
    ---------------------
    Bright Passenger Car
    ---------------------
    After Rebecca is introduced to the zombies, turn around and shoot the one 
    behind Rebecca. He will only take two shots. Then go through the door quick!
    
    New Enemy! Zombie
    Strength:
    Handgun: 4-8 shots, decapitation may occur.
    Shotgun: 1-2 shots, decapitation may occur if you aim upwards.
    This is the most common enemy of Resident Evil, they march towards you 
    slowly, and grab and bite you! I suggest you use the Handgun against them. 
    It is much easier to decapitate zombies than the REmake, so blast and be 
    merry.
    
    ---------------
    Cabin Car
    ---------------
    In the corridor, there are 2 adjacent cabins. Enter the first door.

    Take the Handgun Ammo off the bed, and you will find an interesting file.
    
    New File! Passenger's Diary
    July 14th
    Orders came from the 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 in the initial group, assigned to start 
    checking what's left of the abandoned experiment. (1)
    
    July 16th
    Unfortunately, the test production of B.O.W. (Type-Y139) had to be 
    suspended because of this investigation.
    
    It's the same with Type-Y-139. There's still so much we didn't know about 
    responses to the crustacean t-virus. There's a lot of interesting research 
    left...
    
    Depending on the species and nurturing conditions, only minute doses of 
    "t" bring about solidity, size, multiplication of internal toxins and brain 
    development. If these effects can be controlled, a powerful weapon could 
    be produced.
    
    But the sudden development of the shell results in a corresponding 
    fragility. Certain areas become exceedingly weak.
    
    Problematically, one of these areas is the head carapace. (2)
    
    This lab we are going to- were they pursuing the same research? It would 
    certainly help to find data and samples that would help us in our research.
    
    June 19th
    
    The day is finally approaching...
    
    I am growing more anxious.
    
    The Raccoon City newspapers and TV stations are full of reports about the 
    bizarre 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 goes smoothly.
    
    Explanations:
    (1) This proves that some of the passengers of this train belong to Umbrella, 
    and are not going on a vacation.
    (2) The Giant Scorpion you are going to fight later has the same weak spot
    in the head.
    
    Go back to the main corridor.
    
    ---------------
    Cabin Car
    ---------------
    Enter the next cabin.
    
    --------------------
    Cabin 201 Save Room
    --------------------
    There is some Ink Ribbons here. Save if you wish, then pick up the Green 
    Herb and the File on the bed.
    
    New File! Investigation Orders
    (Stained with blood, some sections are illegible).
    
    8 miles north pf Raccoon City, in the Arklay Mountains, lies our comp ny's
    Management Training facility.
    
    It was shut down  years ag .
    
    Now, w are conducting a preliminary tudy into the re-opening of the faci
    ities.
    
    First Investigation Unit is alre dy on-site and opening th investigat
    
    ation., I want yo r team to provide suppo t.
    
    The following orders re Will  m Bark    and 1s  I ves  gat o  Un t.
    
    ...(the rest is torn and unreadable).
    
    Explanation: This gives you an idea that the Umbrella employees in this 
    train were to investigate an abandoned Training Facility in the Arklay 
    Mountains. The 1st Investigator Unit suffered a horrible fate, as by the 
    time you arrive there, you will find many zombies wearing military 
    uniforms.
    
    Get back to the corridor.
    
    ---------------
    Cabin Car
    ---------------
    The door to the conductor's office is locked, so is the Card Key door, 
    so inspect the train employee's body for a Train Key, which is a Dining 
    Car Key. After this, you will be introduced to Billy Coen. Rebecca wants 
    to arrest him, but Billy just ignores her and goes away, ignoring her threat 
    to shoot him. Then more drama! Edward jumps through the window, he tells 
    Rebecca about zombies and monsters in the forest before his killers, 2 
    Cerberus dogs jumps in to join Rebecca!
    
    New Enemy! MA-39 Cerberus
    Strength:
    Handgun: 4-6 Shots
    These hellhounds are one of the Bio Organic Weapons of Umbrella Inc. They 
    try to bite onto your hand, or will pounce on you, trying to bite your 
    neck off. But the good thing is, that there are only 4 in this game. When 
    they charge at you, you can always send them sprawling to the floor with 
    the Handgun as they jump, then the most damage can be inflicted.
    
    After the Cerberuses are dead, get the Handgun Ammo from Edward and return 
    to the Dark Passenger, killing or avoiding zombies as you go.
    -------------------
    Dark Passenger Car
    -------------------
    Rebecca will be warned by Enrico about Billy Coen's murder of 23 people.
    Then walk to the other end of the car, killing the zombie, and enter the 
    Dining Car.
    
    ---------------
    Dining Car 1F
    ---------------
    Rebecca meets Billy again, he suggests they cooperate with each other. 
    Rebecca very immaturely refuses. "Don't call me a little girl!" Then get 
    the file on a desk and send Miss Do-it Yourself up the stairs.
    
    New File! Notice to Supervisors
    When closing the dining car, supervisors are asked to switch off the 
    automatic doors after ensuring all staff have vacated the car.
    
    The main automatic door power switch is located on the roof of the fifth 
    car. Inspections will take place when the train is garaged.
    
    After inspections are complete, use the ladder at the rear of the second 
    floor of the dining car.
    
    Umbrella Corp.
    Maintenance Department
    Explanation: This shows that this train belongs to Umbrella, and a switch 
    for the automatic doors in this room are found on the roof of this train.
    
    ---------------
    Dining Car 2F
    ---------------
    Move a little bit forward and Rebecca will have a nice chat with a rather 
    bald passenger, but suddenly, his head falls off, and breaks down into 
    hundreds of leeches. The leeches then reform into:
    
    New Enemy! Humanoid Leech
    Strength:
    Molotov Cocktails: 3 Cocktails
    These guys are really an indestructible force. Most bullets bounce off 
    them, and their limbs will fall off one by one if normal bullets are used.
    Finally, the lower body will explode, causing damage to everyone! So the 
    best thing to do is to use Molotov Cocktails and other flame based weapons 
    to kill them quick.
    
    Run back to the stairs, and Billy comes to save the day. The leeches disperse, 
    and return to their owner, a long haired young man dressed like the messiah.
    The train starts moving, and Billy asks Rebecca to investigate. He gives 
    her 30 Handgun bullets, what a nice guy... Then split the team up and have 
    Rebecca climb up the ladder behind a window. 
    
    --------------------
    Train Roof as Rebecca
    --------------------
    As Rebecca, move forwards until you see a severed wire, reconnect them, 
    and leeches will knock Rebecca into the hole!
    
    -------------------------
    Train Storage as Rebecca
    -------------------------
    Take the Green Herb and combine it with the one you already have. Take 
    the Handgun ammo as well as the train key. The train key is a conductor's 
    key. Use the lift to send it to the 1st floor. Switch to Billy.
    
    ------------------------
    Dining Room as Billy
    ------------------------
    Go down the stairs and through the auto doors. Then take the Conductor's 
    Key from the lift. Then return to the Cabin Car, killing any zombie that 
    gets in the way.
    
    --------------------
    Cabin Car as Billy
    --------------------
    You can now access the Conductor's office with the conductor's key. What 
    are you waiting for? Enter!
    
    ----------------------------
    Conductor's Office as Billy
    ----------------------------
    Ignore the herbs, but take the Train Map, the File and the Briefcase. Then 
    press the red switch to reveal a ladder. Climb up.
    
    New File! Note from Conductor
    The key card for the Driver's compartment is in my bag always. But I need 
    the other guy's key too to open the damn thing.
    
    But, it looks like I've lost it somewhere. If it was a normal key, someone 
    would be sure to turn it in, but this key is different...
    
    I'll look for it too, but if you happen to find it, please hand it in.
    
    Thanks in advance.
    Explanation: The Keycard for the Card Key Door is in the briefcase, but 
    it requires 2 unusual looking keys to open the case.
    
    -----------------------
    Ecliptic Salon as Billy
    -----------------------
    Check the menu, it look's like they're serving Mediterranean Style Shrimp 
    Capriccio Roast Chicken, yummy! Anyway, move forward and Billy will hear 
    something disturbing above the ceiling. Head through the other door, 
    dropping items until there are 4 blocks remaining, but leave the Handgun 
    ammo
    
    ---------------------
    Cabin Car 2F as Billy
    ---------------------
    Take the Ice Pick from the self service trolley, and enter the other cabin.
    
    -------------------
    Cabin 101 as Billy
    -------------------
    Take the Handgun Ammo, Shotgun Ammo and the Hunting Gun. Then return to 
    the Ecliptic salon.
    
    New Weapon! Hunting Gun
    Ammo: Shotgun Shells in Units of 7
    This is a hunting shotgun that holds 2 rounds at a time. It is rather weak,
    so be ready to dump it after the first boss battle.
    
    -----------------------
    Ecliptic Salon as Billy
    -----------------------
    Move forward and a Giant Scorpion will crash through the ceiling. It seems 
    as if it wants some Mediterranean Style Shrimp Capriccio Roast Billy!
    
    Boss Battle! Type Y-139 Giant Scorpion
    Strength:
    Combined usage of the Hunting Gun and Knife: 2 shots and about 12 stabs
    First, shoot the 2 rounds of the Hunting Gun into the scorpion's head then 
    follow up with repeated stabs of the knife. Just watch out for the scorpion 
    when he covers his pincers with his head and charges Billy. Don't worry 
    if Billy gets hit, the hits are weaker than zombie bites. If Billy is injured, 
    simply use the First Aid Spray in Cabin 101 to heal.
    
    After the battle, a Panel Opener will be revealed. Take it, along with 
    the other items you dropped. Dump the Hunting Gun and the Knife. Then return 
    to the Dining Car.
    
    --------------------
    Dining Car as Billy
    --------------------
    Use the panel opener on the panel, and crawl through the crawlspace.
    
    -------------------
    Cargo Car as Billy
    -------------------
    2 Cerberus Dogs will jump out of the cages. Just kill them, and take the 
    Shotgun Ammo, the Gas Tank and the Gold Ring. Combine the Gold Ring with 
    the Briefcase. Then head back to the Dining Car through the door.
    
    --------------------

    As you move back for the lift, a zombie bursts out of the refrigerator! 
    How did he get there? Kill him, and combine the empty bottles found there 
    with the Gas Tank to form 3 Molotov Cocktails!
    
    New Weapon! Molotov Cocktail
    The Molotov Cocktails are the hand thrown bottles with a burning cloth 
    used by rioters and angry mobs around the world. This is particularly 
    effective on the Humanoid leeches. However, before throwing, ensure that 
    the partner is not in front of you or he or she will be roasted too! Now, 
    send the Ice Pick to the 2nd floor via the lift. Switch to Rebecca.
    
    ---------------------------
    Train Storage with Rebecca
    ---------------------------
    Take the Ice Pick from the lift, and use it to unjam the door. Then leave, 
    go down and join Billy. With the team rejoined, enter the Cargo Car.

    Split the team up, use Billy to operate the release lever, and Rebecca 
    to take the Hookshot. There is a manual included.
    
    New File! Hookshot Operator's Manual
    -WARNING-
    
    This device should only be used when inspecting difficult to access car 
    roofs, or when connecting special trains. Return to its proper location 
    after use.
    
    Instructions
    
    1. Where to use. There is a ladder outside the small window by the 1st 
    floor section door of the third carriage. Fire the device so that it hooks 
    high onto the ladder.
    
    2. Using the Winch to Climb. After securing the hook, use the winch to 
    lift yourself up.
    
    This grappling hook can only lift one person at a time. Be aware that the 
    unit may be damaged if lifting more than 80 kg.
    
    Explanation: This file is self-explanatory. You should use the hookshot 
    in the Bright Passenger Car where there is a window and an out of reach 
    ladder.
    
    With the Hookshot, return to the Bright passenger Car, ignoring any zombie 
    in the way. Give the Briefcase to Rebecca.
    
    ---------------------
    Bright Passenger Car
    ---------------------
    As Rebecca, go to the window stated on the file and use the hookshot. She 
    will be in another part of the Train Roof.

    Train Roof as Rebecca
    ----------------------
    Go forward and jump down the hole.
    
    --------------------
    Cabin 102 as Rebecca
    --------------------
    There is a zombie with an awed expression on his face. Perhaps he is thinking, 
    "Oh! What modern designs these trains have!" Silence him, and take the 
    Jewelry Box. Inside is the Silver Ring. Combine it with the Briefcase and 
    it will be unlocked. Inside is the Blue Card Key. Exit. Meanwhile, the 
    leeches outside the eggs will start to look at one another as if trying 
    to say, "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?" They start to hatch. Anyway, 
    return to Billy through the stairs and take the Green Herb on the way. 
    Then regroup and go to the Cabin Car, again ignoring the zombies.
    
    ---------------
    Cabin Car
    ---------------
    Use the Blue Card Key on the reader. Then as you are about to open the 
    door. You overhear a conservation between a masked Umbrella trooper and 
    guees what? Your own leader Albert Wesker from the Birkin Lab. 
    
    "This is Delta Team, this is Delta Team, we have regained control of the 
    train. Over."
    
    "Understood," Albert Wesker says.
    
    Meanwhile, William Birkin is getting surprised that the T-virus has 
    contaminated the mansion, the train and the lab so quickly. 
    
    "This does not make any sense. How has the T-Virus leaked, and why did 
    it contaminate both the lab and the mansion, as well as the train that's 
    almost three miles away?"
    
    Albert Wesker covers the microphone, "That's irrelevant. We must make sure 
    no knowledge of this gets out. Destroy the train, completely." Albert 
    Wesker asks the commando, "How far away are you from the nearest branch 
    line?"
    
    "About ten minutes to... huh?"
    
    Suddenly, some leeches attack the trooper and his friend and they did a 
    fancy leech dance with Indian cries before falling down. Now, go through 
    the door.
    
    ---------------
    Driver Car
    ---------------
    The engine has been badly damaged beyond repair. Enter the driver's 
    compartment. Billy has found that the Train will derail in 4 minutes, and 
    it is up to them to stop it!
    
    Puzzle Time! We got to stop the train, or else...
    Refer to the file to operate the brakes.
    
    New File! Brake Operation Manual
    Using the Brake control. The following three steps are necessary to operate 
    the brakes:
    
    Step 1: activating the controls.
    
    Brake controls are located in the following locations:
    -First car Driver's Compartment.
    -Rear deck of the fifth car. To activate the system, you must insert the 
    magnetic card into the device in the fifth car. This will supply power 
    to both sets of controls.
    
    Step 2: Enter Rear Deck Code.
    Enter the code for 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 three steps the manual brakes will be available for 
    use.
    Explanations:
    Step 1: Ask Rebecca to stay behind, then as Billy, take the magnetic card 
    from the control panel, and head all the way back to the Train Rear via 
    the 2nd floor, as this can avoid most of the zombies. Just let the Edward 
    Dewey zombie bite you. Use the First Aid Spray if needed. If Rebecca is 
    used, there will be an additional FMV where she tries to reason with Edward 
    Dewey. At the train rear, insert the Magnetic Card into the brake device.
    
    Step 2: On the screen, there will be a number, your objective is to enter 
    the numbers with the numerical keys so that by the 10th button, the number 
    on the left matches the one on the right. This is like the game Target. 
    For example if the number 36 is displayed on the right, key in "3" 9 times 
    then key in 9. The rear brakes will be activated.
    
    Step 3: As Rebecca, take the Handgun Ammo behind her first, and then use 
    the lock. The device is similar to that of Billy's except that there is 
    no number in the left. Again it is a game of Target. For example, if 67 
    is displayed, Key in "7" 9 times then key in 4. With both devices activated, 
    Rebecca will activate the brakes, and it will go on a branch line and crash 
    in the basement of the Training Facility. "Are the faint sounds of footsteps 
    those of survivors?"
    
    *****TRAINING FACILITY*****
    ---------------
    Train Wreck
    ---------------
    Apparently not, those footsteps belong to the zombies from the wreck, 
    quickly head out of the room.

    Climb up the ladder on the other end.
    
    ---------------
    Hall
    ---------------
    Billy climbs up through the trapdoor. The two look around, realizing that 
    they have stumbled upon Umbrella's Research Centre. Meanwhile, Wesker and 
    Birkin observe them from the CCTV, only to be interrupted by Dr. James 
    Marcus's voice over the Public Address system. 
    
    "Who on earth are those people?" William Birkin asks.
    
    "She's just a rookie, a member of S.T.A.R.S." Albert Wesker says.
    
    "And how about the male?"
    
    "I'm unfamiliar with..." Albert says, only to be interrupted by Dr. James 
    Marcus's voice over the Public Address system.
    
    "Attention! This is Dr. Marcus. Please be silent as we reflect about our 
    company motto. Obedience breeds discipline, discipline breeds unity, 
    unity breeds power. Power is life!"
    
    By listening to the Umbrella company motto, I finally understood why there 
    are so many maniacs in the organization. The reason is that "Power is life!" 
    Every Umbrella researcher only cares of oneself as they are all power hungry. 
    If Umbrella did not use this motto, I think that Umbrella would not be 
    as evil as it is now. After that, an image of the messiah guy in white 
    robe occupies every CCTV screen of Birkin and Wesker's control room. 
    
    "Who are you?" William Birkin asks.
    
    "It was I who scattered the T-Virus in the mansion. Needless to say I 
    contaminated the train too." The messiah guy responds.
    
    "What?"
    
    "Revenge, on Umbrella."
    
    You see the messiah guy stretching out his hands, and a whole group of 
    leeches cam out and built up the figure of a man, who looks identical to 
    Dr. Marcus"
    
    "Dr. Marcus?" William Birkin asks.
    
    This robed man accused Birkin and Wesker of helping in the murder of Dr. 
    Marcus, it is now time for revenge.
    
    "10 years ago, Dr. Marcus was murdered by Umbrella. You helped them, didn't 
    you?"
    
    Ha ha ha ha!
    
    After this hysterical laughter, you are left to play again. Drop 
    unnecessary items like the Molotov Cocktails and Hookshot for now, and 
    take the Handgun Bullets from the table. There is a scale on the 2nd floor 
    balcony, asking you to balance good and evil, remember the scale. Save 
    if you like, then head through the double doors to the right of the 
    typewriter.
    
    ---------------
    Dining Room
    ---------------
    Kill the 2 zombies, be careful, as they are better armored than the zombie 
    passengers on the train. Then get the Handgun ammo off the table, and go 
    through the door next to the dead body.

    Shotgun Room
    ---------------
    Waste the 2 zombies, and get the shotgun, the black statue, and the gas 
    tank. Let Billy equip the Shotgun, as it is the "man's weapon". Then dump 
    Rebecca's handgun. Replacing it with Billy's.
    
    New Weapon! Shotgun
    Ammo: Shotgun Ammo in units of 7
    The all time Resident Evil weapon is finally in your hands. It fires 12 
    gauge shells. Whenever zombies come out, you should aim upwards, and shoot 
    when they are close enough to you, then you may be able to decapitate them. 
    Use this weapon for fire support, that is when Rebecca's handgun is not 
    enough, use it to cover her.
    
    Head back to the hall. Don't climb up, as there are 6 zombies guarding 
    only 2 green herbs. So it is not worthwhile to bother.

    Drop the Gas Tank, and place the Black Statue onto the scales. This is

    Get out of there quick!
    
    New Enemy! Crow
    Strength:
    Handgun 1 shot
    Shotgun: 1 shot and group kill
    Crows are just crows, and the T-virus has caused them to attack humans.
    But however, if you do not give them a sign that you are a threat, they'll 
    just leave you alone.

    New File! Regulations for Trainees
    Training facility Mission
    
    This Training facility will raise a new generation of model employees to 
    serve the future of Umbrella Corp.
    
    Applying the strictest and most rigorous training standards, this facility 
    will, without regard for gender, race or creed, produce only the best 
    candidates to be the global future leaders of Umbrella Corporation.
    
    We look forward to the development of your leadership qualities.
    
    Training facility Guidelines
    
    Discipline. Obedience. Unity. (1)
    
    These three words are the basic principles which govern Umbrella 
    Corporation employees, and are to be considered the Law of this facility. 
    Keep these words in mind at all times. (2) Devote yourselves to your 
    training and bring honor to yourselves and the corporation.
    
    James Marcus
    Director,
    Umbrella Corporation
    Management Training facility.
    Explanations:
    (1) Later, there is a device in the Observatory of the facility, that 
    requires the insertion of 3 tablets with the basic principles of Umbrella.
    (2) Ironic, isn't it? Marcus set these fine rules for his employees to 
    follow, and yet he seemed to care for his own interests and broke his own 
    rules. In the future, you will witness many Umbrella researchers who 
    disobey these rules, and disaster results. They include Albert Wesker (RE), 
    William Birkin (RE2) and Alfred Ashford (RE:CV), Now I am not surprised 
    why Spencer had to use his special force team led by Hunk to retrieve 
    different virus samples, as they tend to keep it for themselves.

    There is a Training Facility map, as well as Microfilm A. Take them, then 
    head to the circular device by the lift and insert the Crank Handle. Then 
    send Rebecca onto the lift and let Billy use the handle. Rebecca will go 
    up into the Clock Room.
    
    ----------------------
    Clock Room as Rebecca
    ----------------------
    2 new enemies Plague Crawlers, drop from the ceiling. Head to the steps, 
    and fire your handgun from there, as they cannot attack you there. When 
    they are dead, grab the Handgun Ammo and remember the clock device.
    
    New Enemy! Plague Crawler
    Strength:
    Handgun: 6-8 shots
    Shotgun: 3 shots
    Grenade Launcher with Grenades: 1-3 Rounds
    Grenade Launcher with Acid Grenades: 1-2 Rounds
    Grenade Launcher with Napalm Grenades: 1 Round
    These oversized cockroaches are some new progenitor virus BOW rejects by
    Marcus. They have increased aggressiveness, as they try to pin you down, 
    or grab you, but they are rather stupid, so they are rejected as BOW. I 
    agree too, this is because Plague Crawlers seemed to have difficulties 
    in coming after you when you stand on stairs, so whenever there are stairs, 
    you can just stand on them and shoot them dead with the Handgun.
    
    Exit through the single door.

    the shotgun ammo, the White Statue, and most importantly, the Grenade 
    Launcher.
    
    New Weapon! Grenade Launcher
    Ammo: Grenades, Acid Grenades and Napalm Grenades in units of 6 Usually 
    the "Woman's Weapon" most other Resident Evil games, the Grenade Launcher 
    is back for more fun for all. The Grenades are to be used against any common 
    heavily armored enemies and bosses. The Acid Grenades are effective against 
    Hunters. The Napalm Grenades are effective against leech enemies, and other 
    creepy crawlies, so they should be saved exclusive for the Humanoid Leeches. 
    Otherwise, use the Grenades and Acid Grenades as merrily as you wish.
    
    Head back to the attic. Let Billy Equip the Grenade Launcher.

    Split the team up, and use Billy to operate the winding chain, and send 
    Rebecca down the ladder, and pick up the revealed Facility Key, which is 
    the Fire Key. Suddenly, a giant centipede crashes out and grabs Rebecca! 
    "Help! Billy!"
    
    Boss Battle! Giant Centipede
    Strength:
    Combined usage of Grenade Launcher with Grenades and Shotgun: 6 rounds 
    and 5 - 7 shots.
    This centipede has way too much HP to be the 2nd boss of the game. However, 
    it only scuttles around the room, pausing every few moments to hurt Rebecca. 
    At that time, open fire on it. Just don't let the Centipede crash into 
    Billy, and he will not get hurt.
    
    After enough shots, the centipede will die, freeing Rebecca. Drop the 
    Grenade Launcher to free inventory room. With the newly found Fire Key, 
    head back to the Dining Room.

    New File! Assistant Director'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. (1) They might have a future.
    
    September 25th
    Scholar Will. Practical Al.
    They really are opposites.
    And they're always competitive in everything they do.
    There's something ruthless and cruel about them both...
    
    October 7th
    Got a sudden call from the Director.
    It was to tell me to encourage a rivalry 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. (2)
    Explanations:
    (1) They are actually William Birkin and Albert Wesker.
    (2) Instead of being bitter rivals between each other, they actually became 
    friends, and did a lot of traitorous things against Umbrella in the future.
    This shows that they are very disobedient, undisciplined and disunited, 
    contrary to the three principles of Umbrella. How ironic.
    
    Return to the Hall.

    Kill the 4 zombies quickly before they surround you. It is best to send 
    only one character in at a time. Then take the shotgun ammo, Microfilm 
    B as well as a Verse of Poetry on the table.
    
    New File! 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 thing.
    
    This itself is the keystone,
    
    The pointer to glory
    
    All our hands cannot open the door to the heaven.
    Explanation: I have no idea what this verse is for. There is not a single 
    puzzle in the game to do with the Sun, Earth and Moon. If anyone knows 
    what this file is for, please tell me.
    
    (Some people say that it has got to be the escape route by the means of 
    the door on the other side of the observatory. After all, you see the sun, 
    moon and stars through your telescope.)
    
    Head back to the hall, and go through the door at the west side.

    Just go along the corridor to the door at the other end.

    Operations Control Room
    -------------------------
    Kill the 2 zombies, and take the Handgun ammo. Then insert the 2 microfilms 
    you found into the projector. An image with the top view of the conference 
    room and the desks with their corresponding numbers are shown. A MO Disc 
    pops out, take it.
    
    New File! Microfilm Image
    An image resulting from overlaying microfilms A and B.
    
    Numbers appear on the seats of the conference room.
    Explanation: Each desk is responsible for entering one number of a code 
    in the conference room. For example, pressing the switch on the desk marked
    0 results in the code 0 being input.
    
    With his file, go all the way back to the conference room, ignoring the 
    Humanoid leech on the way.
    
    ---------------
    Conference Room
    ---------------
    Insert the MO Disc into the slot on the speaker's stand. Then the machine 
    will require a 2 digit code to be input. This is totally randomized. 
    
    You will notice that "There is no input device nearby." Besides, when a 
    code is input, it becomes active for a few seconds before it is turned 
    off, and is impossible for one character to reach the second input device 
    before the first one is turned off. Therefore, it is necessary for Rebecca 
    and Billy to be in front of each input device and to enter the codes within 
    a second of each other.
    
    Now, split the team up, and move each character in front of the desks which 
    correspond to the digit of the codes from the file, and press the switch 
    in turn. Then a lock is released. The knights will move their swords away 
    from the double doors and they can be entered. Go through the double doors 
    in this room.

    There is a large chess set on the floor. There are also some Napalm Grenades 
    and Handgun Ammo. Go over to the desk, and examine the chess arrangements.
    It seems that we have another puzzle in our hands.
    
    Puzzle Time! Chess Puzzle
    From the chessboard on the desk, we know that the White King must be pushed 
    so that it lands on the H7 square. For those people who don't play chess, 
    it is the space below the White Rook's. Afterwards, the chessboard will 
    slide open, revealing a Book of Evil. Open it for the Black Wing. There 
    is also an extract of Marcus's Diary.
    
    New File! Marcus's Diary 1
    December 4th
    We finally did it... the new virus!
    We have called it the "Progenitor". (1)
    I want to carry it back and start detailed investigations immediately.
    
    March 23rd
    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's because of the business, but he's becoming incredibly pushy.
    But, maybe I can turn this to my advantage. (2)
    
    I need a special facility to properly explore all this virus's 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 nothing more than a money-spinning tool. Fool!
    
    But if 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. (3)
    
    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 the breakthrough I needed... (4)
    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 mammalian subject for the experiments. (5) 
    Otherwise, I'll never make 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 intelligence, 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... 
    (6)
    
    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 the work of 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 pests... (7)
    Those two are the only ones I trust. Apart from my beloved leeches, of 
    course.
    
    But Spencer... It wouldn't end there, would it? (8)
    I will announce "t" at the next directors meeting, and collect my just 
    rewards...
    Explanations:
    (1) The Progenitor Virus is one of the virus experimented on Lisa and
    Jessica Trevor.
    (2) Even the early people of Umbrella seemed to care for their own interests, 
    in contrary to every one else's.
    (3) The reason for disunity inside Umbrella: When there is a difference 
    in opinion between two senior researchers, and one of the researcher's 
    works are rejected, that researcher would still be stubborn and try to 
    continue his research underground. Rivalries arise.
    (4) The T-Virus was actually invented by Dr. Marcus, instead of William
    Birkin.
    (5) Although the majority of Umbrella is against experimenting on humans, 
    some crazed senior researchers resort to extreme measures to perfect their 
    viruses. Unfortunately, only maniacs and traitors have any success in 
    Umbrella, and that is why many people perceive Umbrella as an "evil 
    organization". In my opinion, Umbrella is just "misunderstood".
    (6) One of the earliest examples of infighting in Umbrella Corporation, 
    I guess. This is really unacceptable, as Marcus set the guidelines 
    "Discipline, Obedience, Unity" for his trainees, and yet he went the whole 
    lot breaking his own rules.
    (7) It seemed that Dr. Marcus trusted William Birkin and Albert Wesker 
    with his life in the old days, and unfortunately, he will pay dearly for 
    that in the future.
    (8) Spencer, eventually would have Marcus assassinated. In my opinion, 
    to prevent anymore employees, high and low, from doing unauthorized 
    activities behind the back of Spencer, Spencer should implement Stalin's 
    Purges onto Umbrella, killing and firing those personnel who do not 
    completely agree with him.
    
    After reading this highly informative and interesting diary, head back 
    out to the corridor.

    Kill the two zombies, and take the Green Chemical from the tank, as well 
    as the First Aid Spray and the Blue Herbs if you wish. There are some 1st 
    Investigator Unit Notes on the bed as well. You will need it if you want 
    to know how to mix chemicals.
    
    New File! 1st Investigator Unit Notes
    We are searching the facilities, and it looks like a lot of the chemicals 
    survived.
    
    Fortunately, the storage tanks are still all 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. (1)
    
    The chemicals are scattered all about, not because of the accident, more 
    a result of plain mismanagement.
    
    When we re-open the facilities, we will have to develop a system for dealing 
    with these chemicals.
    
    (Something is scrawled on the back of the note).
    
    Red + Blue = Sulfuric Acid (2)
    Green + Red = Stripping Agent (3)
    (1) The chemicals found in tanks all around the place can be mixed with 
    Rebecca's Mixing Set to produce new chemicals.
    (2) Mixing Blue and Red Chemicals produces Sulfuric Acid. Which will be 
    mixed with the industrial water later to make the Battery Fluid of the 
    Hi-Power Battery.
    (3) Mixing Green and Red Chemicals produces a Stripping Agent, which can 
    be used to open a capsule that contains a Blue Leech Charm later.
    
    Return to the hall.

    Hall
    ---------------
    Go to the attic and drop the Napalm Rounds. At the same time, kill the
    Plague Crawlers with your Handgun the safe way, by standing behind the 
    gap where the stairs are found. They are so stupid that they cannot even 
    do anything! Then return here, and remove the black statue from the scales, 
    then combine it with the Black Wing to create the statue of evil. Then
    place it on the scales to balance good and evil. The portrait of Dr. James 
    Marcus will slide aside, revealing some stairs. You are now in the facility 
    basement.

    "There is still evil in this place..." There are 3 Giant Spiders here, 
    kill them or ignore them, then go through the door on the far end.
    
    New Enemy! Giant Spider
    Strength:
    Handgun, 6-10 shots, abdomen may burst.
    Shotgun: 2-3 shots
    Spiders are arachnids that have been enhanced by the T-virus. They charge 
    and pin you down, or spit poison which may cause poisoning. If you shoot 
    them with the handgun, the spiders may die earlier if their abdomen bursts. 
    But beware, the green goo may poison you, and baby spiders may come out.  
    So leave the room, and the mess will be automatically gone. Don't worry,
    they are the only poisonous enemies of this game, and they can only be 
    seen in 2 places.

    Go to the air vent, and give Rebecca a boost. She will be in the voltage 
    room.
    
    ------------------------
    Voltage Room as Rebecca
    ------------------------
    After the brief look at the torture instruments, explore the room for a 
    file and a power generator.
    
    New File! About the 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.
    Explanation: Solving the power regulator puzzle will stop the gush of steam 
    in the steam hall. The power is to be set to 70 volts.
    
    With this information, head to the regulator.
    
    Puzzle Time! Power Puzzle
    Pushing the switch upwards increases the voltage, while pushing downwards 
    decreases the voltage. The voltage input for the 5 switches are as follows:
    Switch 1: +/- 30V
    Switch 2: +/- 20V
    Switch 3: +/- 40V
    Switch 4: +/- 10V
    Switch 5: +/- 50V
    Since 30+20+10-40+50=70, push all switches upwards except 3. The 
    previously unlocked door in the B1 corridor will unlock, and the steam 
    in the steam hall will stop gushing out.
    
    However, someone is watching Rebecca on the CCTV camera. It's the messiah 
    guy. He is rather annoyed at her presence, so he releases a new gorilla 
    type creature called the Eliminator after Rebecca. 
    
    "You are wasting your time. I have already claimed this place for myself, 
    which means you are trespassing, and I am very territorial! Ha ha ha ha!"
    
    Rebecca tried to struggle with the Eliminator, but ends up falling through 
    the floor!
    
    Meanwhile, in the Birkin Lab, William Birkin has found out the identity 
    of the crazy messiah guy. 
    
    "It just doesn't make sense. Do you honestly believe this to be the identity 
    of that crazy young man? If, somehow this is true, Umbrella will be 
    finished."
    
    Wesker says that if the conspiracy against Dr. Marcus is revealed, Mr. 
    Spencer's career, as well as William and Albert's will be over. 
    
    "If the old conspiracy against Dr. Marcus has been revealed, Mr. Spencer's 
    career will be over. Not to mention ours too. So, the time has come at 
    last."
    
    "What are you planning to do?" William Birkin asks in shock.
    
    So he plans to leave Umbrella, and join forces with an opposing corporation.
    
    "I will simply say goodbye to Umbrella. The powerful weapon utilizing the 
    T-Virus has almost been completed, and the only remaining task is to acquire 
    combat data," Wesker explains.
    
    "You can't be serious. I refuse to abandon my work. I have finished the 
    research on the T-Virus, and I need a little more time to complete my work 
    on the more powerful G-Virus."
    
    "Do as you wish. I will follow my initial plans to lure the S.T.A.R.S. 
    members into the mansion. Their superior combat training will make them 
    perfect test subjects," Albert Wesker asks as he enters the lift.
    
    Birkin made no efforts to stop him, instead, he will go to operate the 
    self destruct system of the Training Facility to reduce everything to 
    rubble.
    
    "Fine. In the meantime, something must be done about that madman. As I 
    recall, your RC is equipped with a self-destruct device in the basement. 
    I will find it, set it off, and annihilate the place to nothing more than 
    a massive rubble."
    
    Then, the lift door closes, and Albert Wesker has left the Birkin Lab.
    
    After this FMV, Rebecca would be trying to hold on to a metal bar, over 
    another pit! "Oh, can't hold on! Help! Billy!"

    New Enemy! Eliminator Ape
    Strength:
    Shotgun: 2-4 Shots
    This is another Progenitor Virus BOW, formed by injecting the virus into 
    a baboon. They have excellent hearing ability and increased fertility, 
    but they are blind, so they are rejected as a BOW. However, they can hurt
    Billy bad by jumping around and scratching him, so it is best to use 
    something heavy to kill them.

    ----------------
    B2F Save Room
    ----------------
    After Billy takes Rebecca hand and pulls her out of the pit, Rebecca will 
    receive a call form Enrico, asking her if she has found Billy yet. Rebecca 
    lied, and said she had not. She then asked Billy why he ended up like this. 
    Then Billy had a flashback, apparently, he was one of the 4 survivors of 
    a Marine team sent to intervene in a civil war. 
    
    "It was around this time last year. Our unit was ordered to Africa to 
    intervene in a civil war. Our mission was to raid a hideout of some guerilla 
    forces located deep inside the jungle. The hideout was far away from our 
    entry point."
    
    You see several of Billy Coen's teammates getting shot or dying of heat 
    stroke.
    
    "Some died from the heat, others were killed by the enemy. In the end, 
    only four of us, survived."
    
    You see Billy's team leaving the jungle to a clearing with a small village."
    
    However, their team was acting based on wrong information, and their leader 
    decided to attack an innocent village, and they killed 23 people. 
    
    "Oh wait, there was no guerilla hideout. The idiots in charge had us 
    operating based on wrong information. But we just can't go home 
    empty-handed. Oh no. Our leader, ordered us to attack an innocent village."
    
    However, Billy tried to stop them, but in the end, his teammates repaid 
    him by saying that he did it.
    
    You see the guns blazing in the village, and every villager is flushed 
    out to the open. Billy Coen's Captain says, "Get rid of them! Kill them 
    all!" Billy responds. "Please sir, cease fire immediately." His captain 
    knocks Billy onto the ground. "Shut up! Do it!" His teammates start spraying 
    the villagers with bullets, massacring them all. Billy cries, "No, wait, 
    stop!" The camera then sweeps into the Captain's eye and you see his blue 
    pupils. You see the basement of the Training Facility again.
    
    "So, did you execute those innocent villagers?" Rebecca asks.
    
    "No, it doesn't matter anymore. Besides, you said you wouldn't judge me."
    
    "I'm not judging you. But it does matter! Look, all of my people thought 
    you killed all those MPs in the van. It was those zombie dogs right? When 
    they attacked, you were able to escape. Isn't that right?" Rebecca asks.
    
    "Look, you get it. I only have 2 choices, to either report to the marines 
    and serve out my sentence, or keep running away as long as I can. That's 
    all." Billy ends the conservation, and you are left to play.
    
    After this FMV, you left to play again. Save if you want to, and head out.
    
    ---------------------
    Arrogant Animal Room
    ---------------------
    I called this room the arrogant animal room, mainly because the 
    inscriptions on the animal statues involved showing off their strong 
    points.
    
    Now, head to the downed shutter, there is an inscription. "Six souls, 
    imprisoned within the chains of death. Rekindle the flames of life from 
    the spirits of the weak!" There are 6 statues each, each with an arrogant 
    inscription of the animal.
    
    Puzzle Time! 6 Arrogant Animals
    To open the shutter, Billy has to light the 6 animal statues' bowls in 
    the order from the weakest to the strongest. An animal is considered to 
    be stronger if they claim to have something that can outwit the animal 
    before them. Light them in this order:
    Deer, Wolf, Unicorn, Bear, Snake, Eagle.
    Then the shutter will open, revealing 2 doors. Enter the door in the far 
    end first.

    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. (1)
    
    Again today...
    
    There were those horrible moans. Beyond that door.

    Billy will be in the waterfall room. It seems that 2 Plague Crawlers are 
    busy having a tasty little snack. In fact they are eating their own kind!
    Gross! Get the locker key and join Rebecca in the testing room.
    
    ----------------
    Testing Room
    ----------------
    This is the testing room for Umbrella's Bio Organic Weapons. First, go 
    up the platform and collect the Handgun and Shotgun ammo, then use the 
    locker key on the locker, to reveal a briefcase. Open it by inputting the 
    code 385. Then the handgun parts will be revealed. Combine them with the 
    handgun to create a custom handgun. It is more powerful as it can aim at 
    the zombies' weak spots more easily, and can decapitate the zombies. Then 
    split the team up, and have Rebecca in front of the control panel, and 
    Billy in the testing area. First, press the Center switch as Rebecca. Then 
    move Billy to the left until he reaches another barrier. Then switch to 
    Rebecca and press the center switch again. Then have Billy to press the 
    red switch on the wall. The whole place will be sealed up, and the barriers 
    will all go down. Suddenly, 2 Hunters drop into the room, and attack Billy, 
    yelling "Eragh!" which may mean, "Intruder alert!"
    
    New Enemy! MA-121 Hunter (Alpha)
    Strength:
    Shotgun: 3 shots
    The Hunters are one of Umbrella most successful series of BOWs. Made from 
    combining the DNAs of humans and reptiles, the Hunter is very fast indeed, 
    the Hunter Alphas are probably the most handsome Hunters in the series, 
    unlike the other uglier prototypes. They have a newer fury swipe move, 
    where they swipe you 2 times in a row. I suggest you use heavy weapons 
    like the Shotgun and Grenade Launcher. Acid Shells are particularly 
    effective. When Hunters die, they are very funny, they either lie on the 
    ground, trying in vain to get up and crying "Erageh chchchch..." which 
    may mean "I can get up! Somebody please help me!" before lying stiff. Or, 
    they may suddenly hold their chest, and spread their arms out like Moses  
    and cry "Arrgggh!" which may mean "Why is the world so cruel to me?" before 
    falling down! It's so funny!
    
    After the Hunters are dead, the Battle Sequence is over, take the Facility 
    Key from one of the holes, which is a Water Key, as well as the Acid Grenades 
    before you leave. Then rejoin Rebecca, and go all the way back to the 
    Training Facility's attic, remember to take the Molotov Cocktails with 
    you.

    by stepping on, anyway.

    There is a piano, covered with dust. But it looks playable. Have Rebecca 
    play the piano. It seems that Capcom loves to make fun of Rebecca here, 
    as she cannot play the song right, still! Have Billy play the piano. To 
    your surprise, this ex-marine can actually play the piano much better than 
    the 18 year old university graduate Rebecca Chambers! A wall opens. Have 
    Rebecca enter that hidden wine cellar, and take the magnum ammo on the 
    floor and the Battery off the wall. The wall slides shut and Rebecca is 
    trapped. Then have Billy play the piano again, surprised, aren't you? The 
    wall slides open again, and Rebecca can get out. Then return to the 
    corridor.
    
    -------------------
    Water Key Corridor
    -------------------
    Go through the door at the end of the corridor.
    
    --------------------
    Water Key Corridor 2
    --------------------
    Go through the door on the team's right, don't go through the other door 
    on their left, or a Humanoid Leech will appear when they exit that room.
    
    ----------------
    Vise Room
    ----------------
    Key all zombies with your Custom Handgun, and then take the Shotgun Ammo.
    Go to the vise, and insert the vise handle to release the Obedience Tablet.
    Take the tablet and return to the Observatory.
    
    ----------------
    Observatory
    ----------------
    Drop the magnum ammo, and put the Obedience Tablet into the device. Return 
    to the hall.
    
    ----------------
    Hall
    ----------------
    Go through the double doors previously guarded by Knights. Take the 
    Hookshot with you.
    
    ------------------------------
    Outside the Training Facility
    ------------------------------
    Insert the battery onto the device next to the lift shaft, and then send 
    the lift down. Push the crate until it is in front of the pillar with a 
    shining item on top. Then climb on the crate and take the Discipline Tablet. 
    Then return to the Observatory.
    
    ----------------
    Observatory
    ----------------
    Insert the Discipline Tablet into the device, and a FMV plays when the 
    entire observatory shakes! Switch to Disc 2. Then the other set of double 
    doors will unlock. Take all the items you left on the ground with you, 
    and head through. You are now in the laboratory area. "You're entering 
    an insane world..."
    
    *****LABORATORY*****
    ----------------
    Outside Church
    ----------------
    A typical scene of a horror movie, eh? A church, with bats flying about 
    in the sky. If there are still items left in the observatory, drop your 
    items and head back there to get them. Then move across the bridge. Move 
    Rebecca into the pavilion, and place her on the cracked tile inside. The 
    lock on the church's door will be unlocked. Send Billy inside, taking the 
    Hookshot, Grenade Launcher with Acid Grenades, Napalm Grenades and shotgun 
    ammo in his inventory.
    
    ----------------
    Church
    ----------------
    So, some of the seats of the church look rather old, broken and worn down. 
    Everything seems to be OK. Or is it? Go through the other door.
    
    ----------------
    Church Save Room
    ----------------
    Take the Napalm Grenades, the Shotgun Ammo. Save with the typewriter if 
    you wish. Then exit. You are in for a surprise, Billy!
    
    ----------------
    Church
    ----------------
    Billy steps out, suddenly, a bat swoops out of nowhere! It's time for our
    3rd...
    
    Boss Battle! Giant Bat
    Strength:
    Grenade Launcher with Acid Grenades: 5 rounds
    Grenade Launcher with Napalm Grenades: 5 rounds
    The giant bat is the 2nd aerial boss of the game after Alexia of Code 
    Veronica; this bat swoops down and scratches Billy, and can grab him and 
    dangle him in the air for a while. However, just use the acid Grenades 
    and aim up, as acid is effective against furry creatures. The Napalm 
    Grenades are just as effective, but you will be better off saving it for 
    the leeches. Hit him twice, and tiny bats will come to his aid, ignore 
    them and continue blasting. After wards, the bat will fall onto the ground, 
    looking very exhausted before sleeping.
    
    After the battle, attempt to exit, and a hole in the ceiling will be spotted.
    Use the hookshot here.
    
    ----------------
    Church roof
    ----------------
    There is nothing here, apart from the sight of the dark, cloudy sky and 
    a ladder. Climb down the ladder.
    
    ----------------
    Outside Church
    ----------------
    There is a breaker switch, push it down. You will see the elevator powering 
    on. Go through the gate. Regroup, and retrieve all the items you dropped 
    on the ground, and go down the elevator.
    
    ----------------
    Lab Entryway
    ----------------
    Drop all unnecessary items, as this room is the Lab's "Item Box" Then head 
    through the door. (Drop the Magnum Bullets, for instance.)
    
    ----------------
    Reference Room
    ----------------
    Save if you wish, and as Rebecca, hookshot up the hole in the ceiling. 
    Then leave Billy in Attack Stance, and pick up the second part of Marcus's 
    Diary on the table.
    
    New File! Marcus's Diary 2
    (This page has been torn out).
    
    Trouble is likely, but I closed my babies up in a special capsule. But 
    it won't be safe if I hold it on to 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 out how to make it...
    Explanation: To open the capsule which contains the blue leech charm, 
    Rebecca has to mix Green and Red Chemicals to make the stripping agent.
    
    ------------------------------
    Leech Storage Room as Rebecca
    ------------------------------
    Take the file on the chair, and then turn around the corner.
    
    New File! 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 children's growth.
    
    But, the director's a loner; he isn't married, and he sure doesn't have 
    any children...
    
    What did he mean?
    Explanation: The combination lock in the Laboratory entry way has its code 
    based on the growth of Marcus' leeches.
    
    Surprise, there is a Humanoid Leech here! Run past him, and examine the 
    storage. Press the button, and take the leech capsule. Then exit, taking 
    the Laboratory Map with you. Get out of here, quick!
    
    ------------------------------------
    Upper Laboratory Hallway as Rebecca

    Press the switch and oh no! A humanoid leech, but he is in the lower hallway.
    Switch to Billy.

    Go through the 2nd door to the right.
    
    ------------------------
    Machine Room as Rebecca
    ------------------------
    Drop the hookshot, and save if you wish. Then return to the Upper Laboratory 
    Hallway and enter the door on the other side.
    
    ----------------------
    Detox Room as Rebecca
    ----------------------
    There is a zombie pretending to be dead, kill him on the ground. Then take 
    the shotgun ammo, and the Leech Growth Records on a chair.
    
    New File! Leech Growth Records
    February 3rd, 1978
    Administrated "t" into 4 leeches. (1)
    
    Their will to survive leads them first to parasitism and predation. Then 
    they breed and multiply.
    
    Such a single-minded biology makes them attractive candidates for 
    bio-weapons research.
    
    Afterwards, no major changes observed.
    
    February 10th, 1978
    7 days since administration of "t". Rapid growth to double former size, 
    signs of transformation emerging.
    
    Spawning successful.
    
    They double their numbers in one hour (2) , but their ravenous appetites 
    lead them to cannibalism.
    
    Hastened to increase food supply, but lost 2. (3)
    
    March 7th, 1978
    Provided them with live feed, but lost half when the life food fought back. 
    However, the leeches are learning from experience, and are beginning to 
    exhibit group 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?
    (5)
    How will the leeches respond?
    
    June 3rd, 1978
    A day worthy of commemoration.
    Today began to mimic me! (6)
    Surely they recognize their father...
    Wonderful children.
    No one will take you away...
    Explanations:
    (1) As the code was based on Marcus' leeches' growth, we know the first
    digit is 4.
    (2) Second digit= 4x2= 8
    (3) Third digit= 8-2 = 6
    (4) Fourth digit= 6/2 = 3. Therefore the combination is 4863.
    (5) Another typical behavior of Umbrella's senior researchers. They use 
    employees as guinea pigs. This practice is hated by the lower levels, but 
    unfortunately almost all of the high level researchers are maniacs and 
    like to use this technique. This is why Umbrella is regarded as evil.
    (6) This explains the humanoid leeches. The leeches became very loyal to
    Dr. James Marcus and started to combine together to look like him. Dr.
    Marcus is just as obsessive as Alexia Ashford. Instead of being obsessed 
    with ants, though, he is obsessed with leeches. Even sicker.
    
    There is also a Red Tank in the room next to the detox device. Take some 
    Red Chemical and mix it with the Green Chemical you have obtained from 
    the mansion to make the stripping agent. Use the stripping agent to open 
    the capsule, revealing a Blue Leech Charm. Then head through the double 
    doors.
    
    -------------------------
    Operating Room as Rebecca
    -------------------------
    Kill the zombies, and use the lift to send the shotgun ammo and Blue leech 
    charm down to Billy. Send him the first aid spray if he was badly injured 
    by the humanoid leech. There is also a file in this room. On the floor 
    in plain sight.
    
    New File! Investigator's Report
    Dr. Marcus. Co-founder (1) , with President Spencer, of the Umbrella 
    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 the evidence of Dr. Marcus' research into the T-virus 
    prototype called "Progenitor".
    
    The evidence of years of hideous experimentation that used company 
    employees as guinea pigs. (2)
    
    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 Umbrella Corporation, I can't imagine that his research is 
    continuing.
    
    No... his experiments 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).
    Explanations:
    (1) Dr. Marcus was the co-founder of Umbrella with Lord Spencer.
    (2) So it shows that Dr. Marcus really experimented on people, and the 
    investigators don't like it. It seems that Umbrella is not that bad. But 
    it is just the people who are at the top who are insane.
    
    Switch to Billy.
    
    ----------------------
    Lab Entryway as Billy
    ----------------------
    Reenter the reference room, and take the Blue Leech Charm and Shotgun Ammo, 
    kill the zombie and head back out. The go to the Blue Marcus Bust door 
    and insert the leech charm. It unlocks. Go through.
    
    -----------------------
    Marcus' Study as Billy
    -----------------------
    Explore the room to find handgun ammo and an input regulator coil. Then 
    an old photograph will be found.
    
    New File! Old Photograph
    (There's something written on the back of the photograph).
    
    To James,
    To commemorate your graduation, 1939
    Explanation: This proves that Dr. Marcus graduated in 1939. This causes 
    Billy to wander who the messiah guy is.
    
    "Judging from the age, that guy could be Marcus' son, or grandson."
    
    After the short FMV, head through the door
    
    ---------------------
    Statue Room as Billy
    ---------------------
    Try to run past the 2 zombies, and get the Green Leech Charm from the statue. 
    Then get all the way back to the Reference Room.

    Kill the crawling zombie and the zombie pretending to be dead. Then get 
    the sterilizing agent and the handgun ammo. Return to the detox room.
    
    ---------------------
    Detox room as Rebecca
    ---------------------
    Insert the Sterilizing agent in the Detox machine to neutralize the toxic 
    gas in the chamber. Head into the chamber. Kill the zombie on the ground 
    and the zombie that has just awaken, get the Breeding Room Key and return 
    to the Upper Laboratory Hallway.

    -------------------------
    Breeding Room as Rebecca
    -------------------------
    Move a little bit forward and two Hunters burst out of the cages! Kill 
    them from a distance with your custom handgun and take the BOW report on 
    the floor and the dial in the cage. Return to the Operating Room and send 
    the dial to Billy. Then head to the machine room.
    
    New File! BOW Report
    Research to date has shown that when the Progenitor virus is administered 
    to living organisms, violent cellular changes cause a breakdown in the 
    system. Furthermore, no satisfactory method has been found to control the 
    organisms for use as weapons.
    
    Clearly, greater coordination 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 (1)
    Perhaps because these ancient animals have been genetically stable for 
    millennia, when administered with the progenitor virus they exhibited only 
    explosive, high energy growth and increased aggressiveness. It is 
    extremely difficult to envision using them as BOW.
    
    Amphibia (2)
    Injecting a frog with the virus resulted in an increase in leaping power 
    and abnormal tongue growth. However, no change in mental ability was 
    observed. Furthermore, an abnormal appetite resulted in the test subject 
    randomly attacking all moving objects. Usefulness for BOW is limited.
    
    Mammalia (3)
    The progenitor virus has merged with monkey's cellular DNA, resulting I 
    increased fertility The resulting young exhibited improved aggressiveness 
    and some increased mental capacity. (As a side effect, visual power was 
    lost, but this was offset by an improvement in hearing ability).
    However, they were unsatisfactory as weapons.
    
    It does seem that no progress can be made without making humans the base 
    organism.
    Explanations:
    (1) This describes the Plague Crawlers.
    (2) This describes the Lurker Frogs, which you will meet in the Treatment 
    Plant.
    (3) This describes the Eliminator Apes.
    
    ------------------------
    Reference Room as Billy
    ------------------------
    Get the dial, and get back to the entryway.
    
    ----------------------
    Lab Entryway as Billy
    ----------------------
    Insert the dial in the other locked door. Key in the combination 4863. 
    The door unlocks. Go through.
    
    -----------------------
    Platform Room as Billy
    ----------------------- 
    Billy has found a Cable Car, he asks Rebecca to join him as soon as possible. 
    There is a lever in this area. Pull it to move the ladder towards the machine 
    room platform. An output regulator coil will be revealed. Take it and climb 
    up.
    
    ----------------
    Machine Room
    ----------------
    Before rejoining Rebecca, take the Hookshot, and climb down there again.
    Then use the Hookshot on the hole you found. Climb up, and you are in the 
    machine room again. Drop the hookshot, as it is obsolete in the game now! 
    Take the Shotgun Ammo, and insert the two regulator coils and the cable 
    car will turn on. Then head through the door and rejoin Rebecca. Move the 
    team down to the Entryway, and have Billy hold the Grenade Launcher and 
    Acid Grenades, if any are left. Take the magnum ammo as Rebecca. To be 
    precise, make Billy's inventory as follows:
    Shotgun
    Grenade Launcher loaded with Napalm Grenades
    Acid Grenades
    Shotgun Ammo
    Then return to the platform room.
    
    ----------------
    Platform Room
    ----------------
    Attempt to enter the cable car, and an Eliminator Ape will try to eliminate 
    Billy, but Billy struggles with it, and was knocked into the pit below! 
    Poor Becky now has to face the cruel world by herself!  Suddenly, something 
    sneaks up on Rebecca, something icky, something sticky. It's a Humanoid 
    Leech.
    The Cable Car suddenly powers down! Oh God!
    
    As Rebecca, run past the leech and climb up the ladder. Then go to the 
    control panel and replace the output regulator coil the leeches removed.
    Then you can enter the cable car.
    
    ----------------
    Cable Car
    ----------------
    Take the Magnum from the dead body, and start the cable car. You will arrive 
    at the Factory, the same factory Leon and Claire visited in Resident Evil 
    2.
    
    New Weapon! Magnum
    Ammo: Magnum Ammo in units of 8
    The magnum is definitely the most powerful weapon in the game. Like the 
    one in Resident Evil 2, it is in Handgun Style, and holds 8 rounds. As 
    ammo is scarce, you are advised to save it for important boss battles, 
    like the one you are going to face now.
    
    *****FACTORY*****
    ----------------
    Platform
    ----------------
    Take the Green Herbs if you were injured by the humanoid leech, otherwise, 
    leave them, as your inventory has been reduced to only 6 slots. Then head 
    through the other unlocked door in this room. 
    
    ----------------
    Warehouse
    ----------------
    "It's dark and silent... But, you can still feel your heartbeat."
    Looks familiar does it, but please note that the door Rebecca came in with 
    will be blocked by Barrels by the time of Resident Evil 2. Then head through 
    the white door.
    
    ---------------------
    Panel Room Save Room
    ---------------------
    Feels like only yesterday or only 2 months later, eh? However, the hatch 
    that Leon and Claire went through is tightly sealed, so you cannot go 
    through. Take the First Aid Spray from the cupboard and the Handgun Ammo 
    from the panel top, the map off the wall. There are also Grenades. Take 
    them if you wish. Then save with the ink ribbon as things are about to 
    get nasty. Get out again.
    
    ----------------
    Warehouse
    ----------------
    Take the lift down, walk through the narrow platform and through the sliding 
    door.
    
    ----------------
    Monitor Room
    ----------------
    Go all the way to the end of the walkway, and take the Control Panel Key, 
    which is the Up Key, practically the same one as in Resident Evil 2. Examine 
    the monitor, a giant humanoid being is being suspended in bio-organic 
    fluid.
    
    However, Capcom misspelled it as Humaniod! Well, I guess Capcom has to 
    find some proofreaders from now on. The room the capsule in looks like 
    the culture experimentation room in the Birkin Lab in RE2. Attempt to leave 
    and 2 Hunters will come to say hi, just run past them and get out of there. 
    If you were hurt, just use the Green Herbs from the Platform. Then get 
    back to the Panel Room.
    
    ----------------
    Panel Room
    ----------------
    Insert the Up Key onto the Control Panel on the corner. The Turntable will 
    rise up. Get onto the turntable.
    
    ----------------
    Warehouse
    ----------------
    On the turntable, examine the yellow control panel for a switch, press 
    it to activate the turntable and it will travel all the way down to the 
    Birkin Lab Entrance.
    
    --------------------
    Birkin Lab Entrance
    --------------------
    Remember this place in RE2? Go near the elevator by the Security Room, 
    and watch an emotional FMV featuring Enrico and Rebecca. Rebecca is 
    determined to find Billy, and Enrico allows her, and leaves. Rebecca never 
    saw Enrico again. There is an elevator key by the lift. Take it. Apparently, 
    Capcom does not like to overlap locations between games, so the door to 
    the Birkin Lab cannot be opened, so as the security room and the lift Enrico 
    came out of, lazy Capcom! If Rebecca would just open the green shaft door, 
    she would stumble upon a fully functional Birkin lab with the personnel 
    still alive. Anyway, move to the other side of this area, where there is 
    another elevator, insert the key into the button panel and an FMV will 
    occur where the giant humanoid being jumps from the wreckage and confronts 
    Rebecca! Meanwhile, a barrier comes down, now the Birkin Lab is no longer 
    accessible. This barrier will still be in place when Leon and Claire visit 
    the lab later. It is Tyrant, and he is in a bad mood lately, trapped in 
    the capsule! Now he has forced himself out of the capsule in the culture 
    experimentation room to find food! He spreads his arms out wide, and moves 
    his mouth as if to say, "I am so happy that I am out of my capsule prison! 
    Now I will celebrate, by beating the life out of you!"
    
    Boss Battle! Tyrant
    Strength:
    Magnum: 10-12 shots
    This Tyrant is actually a reject, but he can still hit Rebecca hard. Fire 
    a Magnum round at him and he will recoil in pain. Don't shoot at that 
    instance, as he is invincible at that time. When he has recovered, continued 
    shooting. This Tyrant attacks by charge slashing. When he readies himself, 
    run perpendicularly to his path, this time to the left. Then you can 
    sometimes dodge his attacks.
    
    After 10 shots or so, he will fall on the ground, don't shoot him anymore, 
    as the battle is over.
    
    After the battle, the lift will be ready, go inside.
    
    ----------------
    Lift
    ----------------
    There are 4 buttons. Lv. 1, Lv. 2, Lv. 3, Lv. 4.
    Lv. 1 leads back to the train wreck. Lv.3 is the level you are on. Go to
    Lv. 2 first.
    
    ----------------
    Shaft Walkway
    ----------------
    Take the Magnum and Handgun ammo, and kill the Hunter with your magnum 
    if you wish, and take the green and red herbs if you are in need of a healing 
    item. Then return to the lift.
    
    ----------------
    Lift
    ----------------
    Head down to Lv. 4. It seems that the messiah guy can see everything from 
    his cameras. He said to Rebecca that she no longer amuses him, and nothing 
    would stop him from getting his revenge. Now, you are at Lv. 4. Exit. You 
    are in the Treatment Plant.
    
    *****TREATMENT PLANT*****
    ----------------
    Walkway
    ----------------
    You will see another FMV, where Rebecca sees Billy holding on something 
    in the water, then suddenly, something big, probably a shark, bumps him  
    and sends him washed away in a pipe. "No! Billy!" Stay cool Rebecca, "You 
    must survive in order to expose this nightmare..." Head through the double 
    doors.
    
    ----------------
    Monitor Room
    ----------------
    Get the Gas Tank and the Handgun Ammo by the typewriter. However, the plant 
    is currently powered down, so we will have to solve a puzzle to supply 
    power to all the facilities of the plant.
    
    Puzzle Time! Power up the Plant
    From the device, we know that power can be supplied up to 2 points away 
    from the point you select. To do this, designate the following 3 points: 
    The point on the 2nd column on the left, and is the 2nd nearest to the 
    bottom. The point on the same column, and is 2nd nearest to the top.
    The point on the 2nd column to the right, and is 2nd nearest to the bottom.
    Afterwards, all points will be powered up, and Rebecca can take the elevator 
    down.

    Machinery Hall
    ----------------
    There are 3 worker zombies here. Kill them all! Then take the empty bottle, 
    and combine it with the gas tank for 3 Molotov cocktails. Then head through 
    the door, save the herbs for later.
    
    ----------------
    L shaped hallway
    ----------------
    Drop the magnum and magnum ammo. Then turn around the corner. A humanoid 
    leech! Incinerate him quick! Don't worry, you have just destroyed the last 
    humanoid leech in the game! Then enter the door on the other end of the 
    hallway.
    
    ----------------
    Recreation Room
    ----------------
    Kill the worker zombie, and take the Treatment Plant Map. Wow, this plant 
    goes all the way down to B9 level! That really is typical of a secret 
    underground society's facility. Head down the stairs.
    
    ----------------

    Billy Room
    ----------------
    Well, Billy Coen is alive! He wakes up, and freaks out at the sight of 
    the skeletons lying around! Anyway, with Billy rejoining you, head back 
    to the Box Pool Room.
    
    ----------------
    Box Pool Room
    ----------------
    In this room, there is a large pit, with a wheel on the other side. In 
    the pool, there are some boxes, 3 wooden boxes and a metal box. Get Billy 
    down to the pit and Rebecca by the controls. It's...
    
    Puzzle Time! Complex Box Puzzle
    To move the boxes so they lean against the wall on the side where the bridge 
    is to be made, follow the steps below (I know it is hard to understand 
    without drawing an ASCII diagram):
    1. Climb over the metal box, and push it towards the wall opposite that 
    of the ladder
    2. Switch to Rebecca. Rotate the floodgate to the right.
    3. As Billy, push the metal box into the wall that is right in front of 
    the ladder.
    4. Push the wooden box on Billy's left all the way to the side where the 
    bridge is to be made, that is to the right of the box that is already leaning 
    to the wall.
    5. Then push the remaining box so that is right in front of the box you 
    have just pushed into the wall.
    6. Switch to Rebecca. Rotate the railing to the left.
    7. Change back to Billy. Climb over the box into that space in the wall 
    with the drain, and push the box in front of the remaining gap.
    8. Switch to Rebecca. Rotate the railing to the left again.
    9. Switch to Billy. Push the remaining box into that gap and climb out 
    of the pit.
    10. Now, regroup, and press the fill/drain switch on the panel. The pit 
    fills with water, and the 3 boxes float, creating a bridge.
    
    Man, that has got to be the most complicated puzzle ever! Go over the bridge 
    you created, and take the Handle. Then go all the way back to the L shaped 
    hallway.
    
    ----------------
    L shaped hall
    ----------------
    There will be some new zombies here. Take them all out. Then pick up the 
    Magnum and the magnum ammo if you have left them behind. Then use the handle 
    on the hole in the locked door. Then go through.
    
    -----------------
    Naked Zombie Room
    -----------------
    There are up to 5 naked zombies in this room! Kill them all before you 
    are surrounded. There is Handgun ammo by a corner. Then as Rebecca, climb 
    up the ladder.
    
    ----------------
    Balcony
    ----------------
    Avoid the zombie, get the Investigator's Report 2 and the Red Chemical 
    from the tank. Use the green herbs if necessary. Then go down and rejoin 
    Billy.
    
    New File! Investigator's Report 2
    We should have finished with this dump long ago. When this all stated, 
    did anyone expect that there would be guns blazing away like this?
    
    We weren't told a thing about these creatures attacking us at the 
    briefing...
    Guess they were a surprise to the head honchos too. The things in the woods 
    just starting to attack 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 is whether to use my last bullet on myself, 
    or on a friend...
    
    That's the only decision I have to make.
    Explanation: It seemed that the 1st Investigator Unit suffered a rather 
    sticky end...
    
    ----------------
    Naked Zombie Room
    ----------------
    With Billy, head through the other door.
    
    ----------------
    Hunter Hall
    ----------------
    Blast the Hunters with your shotgun. Because they are so close together, 
    it is always possible to kill them both at once, and you can have the 
    pleasure in hearing them dying in "stereo"! Ha ha! Congrats, you have 
    destroyed the last Hunters in the game! Go through the other door.
    
    -------------------
    Lodgings Save Room
    -------------------
    Take the Napalm Grenades, and drop the Custom Handgun and the ammo, as 
    it is obsolete now. Then take the healing items around, and the file. Save 
    if you wish, and then head through the other door.
    
    New File! 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 a specific gravity of 
    1.280+/-0.010 at 20C.
    
    Battery Acid Purity
    Take care that the dilute sulfuric acid solution is of a sufficient purity.
    Explanation: Later, Rebecca has to mix Battery Fluid for an empty battery.
    To do this, she has to mix sulfuric acid with industrial water.

    New File! Treatment Plant Manager's Diary
    5/10
    Damn it! Why is normal industrial waste being delivered here? This is an 
    Umbrella Corporation 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.
    Explanation: This treatment plant was shut down because they keep receiving 
    materials that cannot be processed in the plant.
    
    -------------------
    Tyrant Battle Room
    -------------------
    Walk a little bit, and a claw comes out of the pool! It's Tyrant! He still 
    wants to play!
    Boss Battle! Tyrant
    Strength:
    Magnum: 10-12 shots
    In this battle, you have Billy to help you. The same fighting style in 
    the factory applies. It is highly recommended that you set Billy into Attack 
    Stance, so he can shoot his shotgun into the Tyrant as well, shortening 
    the battle.
    
    When Tyrant is done for the 2nd and final time, push the button to reveal 
    a ladder. Climb up.
    
    ----------------
    Balcony
    ----------------
    Take the motherboard with Rebecca, and head down.
    
    -------------------
    Tyrant Battle Room
    -------------------
    Split the 2 up, and send Billy out the door, and Rebecca up the elevator, 
    taking the Grenade Launcher with her.
    
    ----------------
    Dam Area as Billy
    ----------------
    Wait by the Green Herbs. Switch to Rebecca.
    
    -----------------------
    Gondola Room as Rebecca
    -----------------------
    Insert the motherboard into the machine, and the gondola will come over, 
    ride the gondola.
    
    --------------------------
    Dam Lever Room as Rebecca
    --------------------------
    Pull the lever, and the dam area's water level will drop, revealing a bridge 
    for Billy to cross. Then take the Acid Grenades, and load them into the 
    Grenade Launcher. Go through the door.
    
    -----------------------------
    Blue Chemical Room as Rebecca
    -----------------------------
    Kill the Plague Crawler and get the extra Acid Grenades. Then take some 
    Blue Chemical from the tank, combine it with the Red Chemical to form
    Sulfuric Acid. Then take the industrial water from the table and combine 
    it with the acid to form Battery Fluid. Then head down the stairs and wait.
    Switch to Billy.
    
    -----------------
    Dam Area as Billy
    -----------------
    Climb down onto the platform, and run along the bridge, a Lurker Frog jumps 
    out!
    
    New Enemy! Lurker Frog
    Strength:
    Shotgun: 2-4 shots
    These frogs have been enhanced by the Progenitor Virus. They have increased 
    leaping power and abnormal tongue growth. As they have a tremendous 
    appetite, they can grab Billy with their long tongues and eat him whole! 
    However, they were rejected because they are stupid, and can only attack 
    random objects. If you see one of those, I suggest you run way and they 
    should leave you alone.
    
    Climb up the ladder on the other side, and the Lurker will lose interest
    in Billy and return to the water. Then go through the door.
    
    ----------------------
    Turbine Room as Billy
    ----------------------
    Decapitate all naked zombies, and take the shotgun ammo, and then head 
    through the only other door that he can unlock.
    
    ----------------------------
    Plague Crawler Storage Room
    ----------------------------
    There is an empty battery on the shelf, give Rebecca a boost and get the 
    battery. Combine it on the spot with the Battery Fluid to make a high power 
    battery. Just then, the capsules break! 2 Plague Crawlers jump out! 
    Surprise! TO kill them the easy way, retreat into the small gap by the 
    stairs, the crawlers cannot do anything, and can be easily taken down by 
    the shotgun. I told you they were stupid! Congrats, the last Plague Crawlers 
    in the game have been defeated! Then regroup and head up the stairs.
    
    -------------------
    Blue Chemical Room
    -------------------
    Go through the door by the Blue Chemical.
    
    ----------------
    Billy Room
    ----------------
    You are back in the Billy room, now go all the way back to the forklift 
    room.
    
    ----------------
    Forklift Room
    ----------------
    If the herbs are still there, take them as you will need it soon. Insert 
    the High Power Battery into the slot on the forklift, and get Rebecca onto 
    the crate. Then switch to Billy and use the forklift. Rebecca will be able 
    to reach the Keycard. Take it, and leave the room, ignoring the Lurker 
    Frog. Go all the way back to the turbine room.
    
    ----------------
    Turbine Room
    ----------------
    Insert the keycard into the Key Card Reader. Then head through the door.
    
    --------------------
    Outside Incinerator
    --------------------
    Take the Magnum Bullets and head through the door. Equip Rebecca with the
    Magnum and Billy with the Grenade Launcher with Acid Grenades (The Napalm
    Grenades are too precious to be used yet).
    
    ----------------
    Incinerator
    ----------------
    Now, we find that the incinerator has been turned into a nest for Marcus' 
    leeches. Then the messiah guy welcomes Rebecca and Billy to the "party" 
    from the balcony. 
    
    "Welcome young ones, so glad for you to join the party. You're the guests 
    of honor, after all, it's your wake! Hahahahaha!"
    
    "Who are you?" Billy asks him who he is. 
    
    Suddenly, messiah guy's face becomes older by 40 years in only a few seconds, 
    and so, the messiah guy is Dr. Marcus himself!
    
    "Dr. Marcus?" Billy asks in awe.
    
    "NO, you can't be, what's going on?" Rebecca asks.
    
    Marcus then tells us his life story.
    
    "Heh heh heh! 10 years ago, Spencer had me assassinated!"
    
    It was 10 years ago, in 1988, 10 years after he had hidden and disappeared.
    He was busy performing experiments with his leeches when suddenly, 2 men 
    holding machine guns burst in through the doors. Instead of saying "Hands 
    up!" to Marcus, they opened fire on him, mortally wounding him. Then his 
    2 students whom he trusted most in his career, Albert Wesker and William 
    Birkin entered the room.
    
    The last thing Marcus heard was Wesker saying, "Hello, time to die, doctor." 
    And Birkin said, "I will take over your research from now on. Ha ha ha 
    ha!" Marcus said weakly, 'Wesker... Birkin..." before everything went 
    black and he was dumped into the treatment plant.
    
    But then, something wondrous happened, one of his leeches, the queen found 
    his body and entered his body. 
    
    "It took the T-virus inside of my queen, years to procreate my new life."
    
    The queen somehow fused with his cells, giving him new life. And, "I live." 
    The messiah guy says. "Now I can have my revenge on Umbrella, and the world 
    will burn in an inferno of hate! Ha ha ha!" Billy says, "You'll pay for 
    what you have done!" Marcus then says, "We'll see which one of us is going 
    to die! Ha ha ha ha!" Then Marcus spits out several leeches from his mouth, 
    the he transformed into a very hideous monster and jumped down to face 
    the two!
    
    Boss Battle! Marcus Leech Guy
    Strength:
    Combined usage of the Magnum, Shotgun and Grenade Launcher: Just keep 
    shooting until he falls
    That's right; just keep shooting until he falls. The Marcus Leech Guy is 
    slow, but powerful. However, rapid fire from the magnum can always make 
    him recoil in pain. Just watch out when he grabs you or your partner in 
    his tentacles. Once he or she is free, quickly use an herb to heal him, 
    otherwise they will die quickly.
    
    When Marcus is down, let each of your characters take a shaft key. Explore 
    the room for more Magnum ammo, and then split the team up. Move each 
    character in front of the shaft key slots, and take turns inserting the 
    keys. Then the double doors will unlock, and you will find yourself in 
    the Storage.
    
    ----------------
    Storage
    ----------------
    Take the shotgun ammo and the healing items. No need to bother about the 
    rest. Then save the game with the typewriter and ink ribbon, and go up 
    through the elevator.
    
    ----------------
    Loading Dock
    ----------------
    Everything seems to be all right. Suddenly, Wham! "It's the Queen!" Billy 
    says. A female voice says, the self-destruct sequence is activated." 
    Rebecca says, "Who activated the self-destruct system!?" The Queen Leech 
    is gaining speed..."C'mon, can't this thing move any faster?" Billy says. 
    Then the Queen Leech crashes onto the elevator, knocking Rebecca and Billy 
    upwards to the surface. It's time for...
    
    Boss Battle! Queen Leech
    Strength:
    Combined Usage of the Grenade Launcher and Magnum: Just keep shooting until 
    she falls.
    To be precise, it is about 8 magnum bullets and 7 Napalm Grenades.
    
    The Queen Leech battle is very simple indeed; just keep shooting until 
    she falls. This is the time to make use of your hard-saved Napalm Grenades! 
    If you shot fast enough, Queen Leech may not even be able to do anything 
    before she falls.
    
    After this battle, the Queen Leech seems to be struggling to stay away 
    from sunlight. Rebecca, seeing this weakness, tells Billy that they have 
    to open the windows. Billy tells Rebecca, "You work on the windows. I'll 
    use my charm to distract her Majesty!" Before the battle, you will get 
    the last file in the game.
    
    New File! Gate Operation Manual
    To open the heliport in case of emergency, follow the procedures below:
    
    Removing the lock:
    
    There are four locking mechanisms in the room which must be activated in 
    this order:
    1. Southwest side
    2. Northwest side
    3. Southeast side
    4. West side
    Turn each of the mechanisms' handles to unlock the gate.
    Explanation: As Rebecca is the person who is responsible for turning the 
    handles, this file is practically useless to Billy.
    
    Boss Battle! Distract Queen Leech
    Strength:
    Shotgun: Just keep shooting to keep her occupied
    Gee, I bet Billy is Prince Charming when facing the Queen Leech, as she 
    will divert her attention on Billy just after a few shots. Then all you 
    have to do is to continuously shoot the Queen Leech to keep her away from 
    Rebecca, and healing yourself constantly when you are injured. As simple 
    as that.
    
    After Rebecca finished turning the last handle, the roof will open, and 
    the sunlight will blind the Queen Leech. Meanwhile, Rebecca spots a Magnum
    Revolver on the floor in a corner. She throws it to Billy.
    
    Billy takes the Magnum, and aims in a cool way. "Queenie, feast on this!"
    Then we get to see the bullet moving in super slow motion, before puncturing 
    the Queen Leech's heart, then watch as her body fall into a million pieces, 
    only to be engulfed by the flames coming up from the facility. Billy and 
    Rebecca quickly leave, and soon after that, the entire training facility 
    blows up!
    
    After this explosion, Rebecca and Billy rest on the grass, Billy takes 
    his handcuffs off, and Rebecca spots the Spencer Mansion down the hill. 
    She says it's time to say goodbye, and takes Billy's dog tag off. Officially 
    Billy Coen is dead. They salute each other, and Rebecca heads towards the 
    mansion. Billy thanks Rebecca before disappearing into the wild. That's 
    the end.
    
    *****EPILOGUE*****
    Having parted with Billy, Rebecca continued her mission and entered the 
    Spencer Mansion to investigate. Only to meet Chris Redfield, a member of 
    the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team while she was trying to help a poisoned Richard 
    Aiken. Chris managed to unmask Albert Wesker as the traitor, and fought 
    the Tyrant Albert Wesker freed. Having blown the Tyrant to bits with a 
    Rocket Launcher thrown down by Brad Vickers, Chris, Rebecca and others 
    left the Spencer Mansion seconds before it self destructed. No more was 
    known of Rebecca Chamber's whereabouts, but she certainly helped cover 
    up Billy Coen's disappearance. As seen in this EX File from the Nintendo 
    64 version of Resident Evil 2. Billy, of course, may still be living with 
    the animals, or he may have taken a new identity and gone back to 
    civilization.
    
    EX File! Rebecca's Report
    On July 23rd, an MP vehicle was found inside the Arklay Mountains. Corpses 
    of MP members and an unidentified body were found near the vehicle.
    
    According to the information from military authorities, the unidentified 
    body was identified as former ensign Billy Koen (1) This is a misprint 
    in the game, it's Coen, not Koen), who was sentenced the death penalty 
    following a court-martial on July 22nd. While Koen was on transfer via 
    Navy MP escort, they must have experienced some kind of accident.
    
    The corpses were severely mauled, apparently torn apart by unidentified 
    wild animals. (2)
    
    The following day we returned to the location to recover the bodies but 
    they were nowhere to be found.
    
    Military authorities have requested that we turn over Koen's body as proof 
    of his death. But due to the circumstances described above, it will be 
    a difficult task to recover the corpse. (3)
    
    I am requesting that this case be temporarily closed until further notice.
    
    Raccoon City Police Department
    S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team (Note: Rebecca belongs to the Bravo Team, not Alpha 
    Team)
    Rebecca Chambers
    
    Explanations:
    (1) Actually, Rebecca Chambers lied here. None of Bravo Team had seen Billy 
    Coen's corpse at the wrecked M.P. vehicle. However, as practically the 
    entire Bravo Team was decimated in the mansion incident, no one was there 
    to prove Rebecca wrong, and she was the sole witness of this scene. Quite 
    a tricky balance here.
    
    (2) If you have observed the opening FMV closely, you will notice some 
    slime dripping from the wreckage of the M.P. van, so obviously the 
    "accident" happened near the time when the Ecliptic Express train was 
    attacked by the leeches. Why the leeches attacked the M.P. van? I really 
    don't know, maybe because they are a little bit frenzied in that night.
    
    (3) Due to such "problems" submitted by Rebecca Chambers, the military 
    can never recover the body of Billy Coen, and hence they can just forget 
    about Billy's existence while Billy runs free.
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    7. Tips and Tricks and Other Interesting Stuff
    ----------------------------------------------
    When shooting zombies, always try to use Billy's handgun instead of 
    Rebecca's, as it is more powerful. Also, try to shoot them as close as 
    possible to maximize damage.
    
    Because there are no item boxes in this game, you cannot carry a surplus 
    of herbs with you. So always be ready to ignore the herbs, and only have 
    at most one full healing item in each character's inventory handy. However, 
    you can get plenty of healing items by the end of the game, and you can 
    simply specialize in using one weapon per character.
    
    At the same time, you can always let Billy take all the strain when fighting 
    tough enemies. Billy is so tough, that he can take a lot of beating and 
    can still be in the condition of Green Fine. Sometimes, he can take a huge 
    mashing and is still alive and well. It happened once when I played against 
    the Giant Bat. I was literally slaughtered to many pieces by the bat, and 
    yet, after I have beaten the Giant Bat, I was still at Orange Caution! 
    This is absolutely incredible. Therefore, if you want to save herbs, let 
    Billy take all the damage.
    
    Sometimes, decapitating zombies with the Shotgun can make a great 
    difference as compared to shooting their bodies. For example, there are 
    those naked zombies in the treatment plant. If you do not decapitate them, 
    they can take as many as 3 shotgun shots to down them instead of just one 
    shot to the head.
    
    This game hates backtrackers, if you return from a later part of a game 
    to an earlier part, you will find many new zombies and monsters appearing. 
    So always take everything you need before moving into a newer area! I mean 
    it! For example, once I went back to the Training Facility after the 
    observatory was lowered. Once I went out of the door, there were 3 
    Eliminator Apes waiting for me there, and I had to fight for my life! And 
    once, a Hunter appeared in the corridor 2, and as a result, it took me 
    by surprise and I lost 2 shotgun shells and my health dropped to Yellow  
    Caution!
    
    Remember the laboratory, where there is a hole in the ceiling of the 
    reference room? If you send Billy up there, he cannot mix the Green and
    Red Chemicals together for the Stripping Agent. Apart from this, the lower 
    level of the laboratory has only the Red Chemical, so Rebecca has to go 
    all the way back to the Training Facility to the bedroom to get the Green 
    Chemical, and risk getting mauled by the newer monsters on the way. In 
    my opinion, people who want to send Billy up there should have Rebecca 
    get the Green Chemical the first time she visits the bedroom, then there 
    is no need to backtrack.
    
    Because this game has no item boxes, you should learn where and when certain 
    items will be obsolete. Then you can dump them early, saving up inventory 
    room. The list of obsolete items is displayed below.
    
    Knife: Dump it as soon as you get it.
    Rebecca's Handgun: Dump it as soon as you meet Billy Coen.
    Hunting Gun: Dump it as soon as you have fired the 2 shells into the 
    Scorpion.
    All keys and keycards: Dump them as soon as the game tells you the key 
    has no further use.
    Hookshot: Dump it as soon as you use it to reach the hole in the ceiling 
    in the platform room.
    Ink Ribbons: Drop them as soon as you have saved, this is because all 
    typewriters have an ink ribbon beside them.
    Grenades: As soon as you reach the Laboratory, they are useless.
    Molotov Cocktails, Empty bottles and Gas Tanks: As soon as you killed the 
    last humanoid leech in the treatment plant, you can forget about these 
    items.
    Custom Handgun: As soon as you killed the zombies in the L shaped hallway 
    in the Treatment Plant, you can use the Shotgun to kill the remaining 
    enemies.
    
    It seems that the Panel Room where Rebecca activated the turntable had 
    a secret hatch that can lead back to the sewer system of Raccoon City in 
    Resident Evil 2. Unfortunately, it was tightly sealed. Little does Rebecca 
    know how close she is from home base.
    
    The large shutter that came down separating Rebecca and the Tyrant from 
    the Birkin Lab entrance was still down in Resident Evil 2, so it seems 
    that a lot of people fail to realize that it is absolutely easy to reenter 
    the Training Facility and reopen it. Just start from the lab and take the 
    elevator back up to Level 1! Obviously, each area had their own independent 
    power supply, and that is why the rest of the Birkin Lab was not affected 
    by anyway of the self-destruct system.
    
    While William Birkin and Albert Wesker were talking in the Birkin Lab, 
    why didn't I see any other Umbrella personnel in the area? I thought that 
    at that time, the lab should be fully functional, and hence there should 
    be a lot of researchers around. Maybe, it is simply because that was the 
    off hour of the facility, and every one has gone home or are sleeping in 
    the staff quarters. But still, why haven't anyone come out of the security 
    room to stop Rebecca?
    
    When you play Resident Evil 2, in any character's B game, you can enter 
    a room with a large broken canister. You now know what was inside. It seems 
    that the prototype Tyrant somehow burst out from that capsule to attack 
    Rebecca. But how could William Birkin neglect that room for 2 months on 
    end to September?
    
    --------------------------
    8. Minigame: Leech Hunter
    --------------------------
    After you have beaten the game once, then this new minigame will be 
    available to you. The object of this minigame is to travel around the 
    Training Facility and the Facility Basement to collect 50 Green Leech 
    Charms and 50 Blue Leech Charms, making up 100 in total. I will not bother 
    to tell you where the 100 charms are, but I will just give you some tips 
    and tricks.
    
    In this minigame, one man can do the job better than two. So you should 
    use Billy, to exterminate every single monster found in the minigame before 
    sending Rebecca to come with you to get the charms.
    
    The leech charms, once picked up, cannot be dropped, so you should think 
    twice before picking them up, particularly you have more than 20 in your 
    inventory, and are lacking room for weapons.
    
    Only the fire key doors are locked, and you will have to find the fire 
    key to open them.
    
    There are 2 Grenade Launchers in this game, one holds only one rounds, 
    while the other can either be holding 30 Grenades, Acid Grenades or Napalm 
    Grenades.
    
    The Sub-machine gun and Magnum appear interchangeably.
    
    The Shotgun Ammo come in units of 14, instead of 7 in this minigame.
    
    Switch to the Custom Handgun as soon as you have found it. It fires faster 
    and does damage.
    
    Skip the west wing of the 1st floor, as there are no leech charms there, 
    just humanoid leeches and possible damage. However, if you want extra 
    shotgun ammo, you can find them in the men's room, and a Green Herb, a
    Blue Herb and a Red Herb can be found in the operations control room.
    
    By the time you have picked up about 90 leech charms, monsters will reappear 
    in several places. You can side step this problem by not collecting the 
    leech charms in the main hall and the conference room until the end.
    
    To end the game, simply let one of your characters die, or exit the main 
    entrance of the Training facility. Please note that the dead character's 
    leeches will not be counted.
    
    Rewards for completing the game are as follows:
    Grade E: 1-29 Leeches
    Reward: Sub-machine gun ammo found in Rebecca's inventory in the start
    of the game, as well as many other places in the game.
    
    Grade D: 30-59 Leeches
    Reward: All handguns have infinite ammo.
    
    Grade C: 60-89 Leeches
    Reward: The Hunting Gun will have infinite ammo.
    
    Grade B: 90-99 Leeches
    Reward: A much more powerful Magnum Revolver will be found in Cabin 202 
    of the train. There are 5 shots only, so save it for bosses.
    
    Grade A: 100 Leeches
    Reward: All weapons found in the game will have infinite ammo. The Molotov
    Cocktail can be found in Cabin 202 of the Train. Use this reward in 
    conjunction with Grade B reward for best effect! You will see what I mean, 
    heh heh.
    
    Please note that if you got a higher grade, but did not get the rewards 
    of lower grades, those rewards of a lower grade will not be available to 
    you. So, to be more precise, to get all 5 rewards, you must play this   
    minigame 5 times, each time with different grades to get all 5 rewards.
    
    ----------------
    9. Secrets
    ----------------
    At the end of the game, you will receive a rank depending on the time it 
    takes for you to complete the game. There are 5 ranks: S, A, B, C and D. 
    
    To get an A rank, beat the game in between 3.5 hours and 5 hours, and you 
    will be rewarded with a sub-machine gun, that can be found on Billy when 
    you first meet him in the train. The ammo is not unlimited, and to get 
    the ammo, get an E grade in the Leech Hunter minigame.
    
    To get an S rank, beat the game in less than 3.5 hours, and you will be 
    rewarded with a Rocket Launcher! This time with infinite ammo! My best 
    record was 3:23:17. To get an S rank, you should try to skip all FMVs and
    Files, and remember the solutions to all the puzzles. Also, only take what 
    you need to ensure that you have enough inventory spaces.
    
    Beating the game in any rank also gives you the Leech Hunter mini-game, 
    and the Closet Key, which can be used to open the closet in cabin 101 of 
    the train. Inside are alternate costumes, 2 for Rebecca, and a suit for 
    Billy. The Leech Hunter minigame can be found on your Billy/00/CLEAR file 
    on the memory card.
    
    ----------------
    10. Conclusion
    ----------------
    Well, that's the end of my guide.
    
    For simplicity, I will just let GameFAQs post my guide now. All other 
    requests will be rejected for now. This guide is copyright 2004 and the 
    years to come to Alasdair Lo Kai Yan.
    
    Anyone can read this guide, or print it out to help them in the game, just
    don't copy it!
    
    Resident Evil 0 really is a very good and fun Gamecube exclusive, featuring 
    many new concepts. However, I am sad to see that the RE2 and RE3 ports 
    to Gamecube have very poor 1998 and 1999 style graphics. So I will be very 
    anxious to wait until Resident Evil: Code Veronica Complete ships this 
    summer, and Resident Evil 4 to arrive in 2004.
    
    If you have any questions, please contact me by my e-mail address: 
    kylohk@netvigator.com. Don't bombard me with spam! Besides, read the 
    Feedback Information before you send any replies.
    
    See you later.
    
    ---------------------------------
    Appendix I: Feedback Information
    ---------------------------------
    Since the publishing of the original version of my Command and Conquer: 
    Generals Side Comparison Guide, I have decided that I must make some new 
    rules for those people who want to give me a feedback about my guides. 
    All future strategy guides will have this section. If the following rules 
    are not observed, I will just consider your e-mail to be spam mail or flame 
    mail, and I will delete it without reading it, and will blacklist your 
    e-mail address.
    
    For publishing permission:
    I used to allow people to publish my guides on their websites as long as 
    they ask for permission. However, I will now ignore all the requests for 
    this guide to be posted on other websites due to the fact that I am updating 
    it consistently, and only Gamefaqs can receive the most updated version 
    of this guide. Besides, having only one site host my work can help in 
    creating efficiency, as there will be many stray versions of my guide in 
    the internet and stuff, and it will make things very difficult to the 
    readers. Although I do not have a lawyer to sue anyone if they do it without 
    my permission, I expect everyone to have self discipline about these 
    things.
    
    Concerning the submission of your own tips:
    I am always ready to accept tips from readers in order to add more flavor 
    to my guide. However, you must read my guide thoroughly first, and make 
    sure that your tip has not been listed in my guide. Otherwise, it would 
    be a waste of your time or my time.
    
    Feedback Concerning Mistakes: (THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART, LISTEN 
    UP):
    As I am a human, and we are all humans, we all make mistakes. Nobody is 
    perfect. If I had made any mistakes in my guide, feel free to e-mail me. 
    But however, you must follow these rules. I have typed out some bad examples 
    with each rule, and they are from some of the e-mail I received by people 
    who are dissatisfied by my original Command and Conquer: Generals side 
    comparison guide.
    
    You must:
    Be polite, as I will take these feedback letters as seriously as formal 
    letters, and you should specify the version number of my guide, then I 
    can check my guide out. However, it need not be as formal as business letters, 
    after all it is only a game. You should also present yourself clearly, 
    I won't even think about anything that I cannot understand at the first 
    glance, as I am a busy person.
    
    For example, "I enjoyed reading your guide, but disagreed with you on some 
    points." From a person called Alex Shikh or "I agree with you that China 
    is the strongest factions, but it is not much stronger than the other 2." 
    From Ives Gobau And so on.
    
    You must not:
    Say any foul language and offend me. 
    
    For example, "Your guide was ********, full of lies and biased opinions." 
    From K Truin. You are not going to make me listen by saying rude words 
    to me, you will only give me the impression that you are either uneducated 
    or have low EQ.
    
    Conduct any surveys about how good my guide is and give it to me, as I 
    could not care less about your so-called surveys. 
    
    For example, "I have conducted a survey about your guide and over 90% said 
    that it was a trashy tabloid." From Frozak.
    
    Start a petition to have my guide removed. 
    
    Before, I was worried about this annoying "Petition: FAQ Removal" board 
    made by a certain person called GamerEX. That is, "I would like to start 
    the petition to have kylohk's Command and Conquer: Generals Side Comparison 
    Guide as it is based on opinions and fluff." When I was asked by IGN to 
    publish my Side Comparison Guide on their site, I told the sender about 
    my worries, and he assured me that I can stick with my own ways and need 
    not listen to angry letter up. So, that's what, if you make any rash moves 
    like organizing petitions, I really won't bother to negotiate with you.
    
    Finally, you must not say anything I consider to be racist. 
    
    For example, "You mentioned that you live in China that is obvious, 
    considering your bias towards this side, etc..." "I am afraid that your living 
    in China has blinded your judgment so much." From someone I could not 
    remember his name. So, what are you trying to say, say that us Chinese 
    are all idiots? Besides, the word bias is used to describe unfair 
    comparisons due to neglecting some facts. As I have put all facts into 
    account, I really cannot have made any bias towards any sides.
    
    From all the 50 or so letters complaint I received, I decided to listen 
    to less than 5 of them. Why? As only 5 of them could follow the rules stated 
    above. So, you MUST take those points into consideration, or else, don't 
    expect me to listen to you.
    
    Game Help:
    If you have read my guide and did not understand something, feel free to 
    ask, but please do not do this too often, as my e-mail account has other 
    uses. HOWEVER, if you ask about anything that is clearly explained in my 
    guide, I will not answer it.
    
    You may have wondered why I put this section up. This is a new 
    "Anti-disturbance" ordinance I set up for my own use, in order to minimize 
    all those annoying and insulting things I receive. In fact, during 
    September alone, I received at least a hundred of mail concerning my Side 
    Comparison Guide, and I am now to make sure this will never ever happen 
    again.
    
    Thank you for your cooperation.
    
    Yours,
    Lo Kai Yan Alasdair, kylohk. (Kai Yan Lo From Hong Kong)

    Court Order for Transportation
    -------------------------------
    Court Order for Transportation 1598A-7635
    Prisoner name: Billy Coen
    ID Number: D-1036
    Former Second Lieutenant,
    Marine Corps
    Age: 26
    Height: 5ft. 9in.
    Weight: 163 lbs.
    Transfer Destination:
    Regarthon Base
    Convicted of First Degree Murder. Court marshaled and sentenced to death 
    by the 0703rd Military Tribunal.
    Sentenced to be carried out upon arrival.
    Samuel Regan,
    Commander,
    Dunell Marine Base
    
    Explanation: The 2nd star player of the game. Billy, aged in the twenties, 
    is accused to have murdered 23 people somewhere in Africa while being in 
    the Marines. As he was transported, the MP van had an accident and he was 
    left in the wild. I like this character, mainly because of his longer HP 
    meter. He can take 4 zombie bites before he is in Caution, good for those 
    zombie-brawlers out there (including me. Heh heh.)

    Passenger's Diary
    ------------------
    July 14th
    Orders came from the 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 in the initial group, assigned to start 
    checking what's left of the abandoned experiment. (1)
    
    July 16th
    Unfortunately, the test production of B.O.W. (Type-Y139) had to be 
    suspended because of this investigation.
    
    It's the same with Type-Y-139. There's still so much we didn't know about 
    responses to the crustacean t-virus. There's a lot of interesting research 
    left...
    
    Depending on the species and nurturing conditions, only minute doses of 
    "t" bring about solidity, size, multiplication of internal toxins and brain 
    development. If these effects can be controlled, a powerful weapon could 
    be produced.
    
    But the sudden development of the shell results in a corresponding 
    fragility. Certain areas become exceedingly weak.
    
    Problematically, one of these areas is the head carapace. (2)
    
    This lab we are going to- were they pursuing the same research? It would 
    certainly help to find data and samples that would help us in our research.
    
    June 19th
    
    The day is finally approaching...
    
    I am growing more anxious.
    
    The Raccoon City newspapers and TV stations are full of reports about the 
    bizarre 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 goes smoothly.
    
    Explanations:
    (1) This proves that some of the passengers of this train belong to Umbrella, 
    and are not going on a vacation.
    (2) The Giant Scorpion you are going to fight later has the same weak spot
    in the head.
    
    ---------------------
    Investigation Orders
    ---------------------
    (Stained with blood, some sections are illegible).
    
    8 miles north pf Raccoon City, in the Arklay Mountains, lies our comp ny's
    Management Training facility.
    
    It was shut down  years ag .
    
    Now, w are conducting a preliminary tudy into the re-opening of the faci
    ities.
    
    First Investigation Unit is alre dy on-site and opening th investigat
    
    ation., I want yo r team to provide suppo t.
    
    The following orders re Will  m Bark    and 1s  I ves  gat o  Un t.
    
    ...(the rest is torn and unreadable).
    
    Explanation: This gives you an idea that the Umbrella employees in this 
    train were to investigate an abandoned Training Facility in the Arklay 
    Mountains. The 1st Investigator Unit suffered a horrible fate, as by the 
    time you arrive there, you will find many zombies wearing military 
    uniforms.
    
    --------------------
    Note from Conductor
    --------------------
    The key card for the Driver's compartment is in my bag always. But I need 
    the other guy's key too to open the damn thing.
    
    But, it looks like I've lost it somewhere. If it was a normal key, someone 
    would be sure to turn it in, but this key is different...
    
    I'll look for it too, but if you happen to find it, please hand it in.
    
    Thanks in advance.
    Explanation: The Keycard for the Card Key Door is in the briefcase, but 
    it requires 2 unusual looking keys to open the case.

    Hookshot Operator's Manual
    ---------------------------
    -WARNING-
    
    This device should only be used when inspecting difficult to access car 
    roofs, or when connecting special trains. Return to its proper location 
    after use.
    
    Instructions
    
    1. Where to use. There is a ladder outside the small window by the 1st 
    floor section door of the third carriage. Fire the device so that it hooks 
    high onto the ladder.
    
    2. Using the Winch to Climb. After securing the hook, use the winch to 
    lift yourself up.
    
    This grappling hook can only lift one person at a time. Be aware that the 
    unit may be damaged if lifting more than 80 kg.
    
    Explanation: This file is self-explanatory. You should use the hookshot 
    in the Bright Passenger Car where there is a window and an out of reach 
    ladder.
    
    -----------------------
    Brake Operation Manual
    -----------------------
    Using the Brake control. The following three steps are necessary to operate 
    the brakes:
    
    Step 1: activating the controls.
    
    Brake controls are located in the following locations:
    -First car Driver's Compartment.
    -Rear deck of the fifth car. To activate the system, you must insert the 
    magnetic card into the device in the fifth car. This will supply power 
    to both sets of controls.
    
    Step 2: Enter Rear Deck Code.
    Enter the code for 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 three steps the manual brakes will be available for 
    use.
    Explanations:
    Step 1: Ask Rebecca to stay behind, then as Billy, take the magnetic card 
    from the control panel, and head all the way back to the Train Rear via 
    the 2nd floor, as this can avoid most of the zombies. Just let the Edward 
    Dewey zombie bite you. Use the First Aid Spray if needed. If Rebecca is 
    used, there will be an additional FMV where she tries to reason with Edward 
    Dewey. At the train rear, insert the Magnetic Card into the brake device.
    
    Step 2: On the screen, there will be a number, your objective is to enter 
    the numbers with the numerical keys so that by the 10th button, the number 
    on the left matches the one on the right. This is like the game Target. 
    For example if the number 36 is displayed on the right, key in "3" 9 times 
    then key in 9. The rear brakes will be activated.
    
    Step 3: As Rebecca, take the Handgun Ammo behind her first, and then use 
    the lock. The device is similar to that of Billy's except that there is 
    no number in the left. Again it is a game of Target. For example, if 67 
    is displayed, Key in "7" 9 times then key in 4. With both devices activated, 
    Rebecca will activate the brakes, and it will go on a branch line and crash 
    in the basement of the Training Facility. "Are the faint sounds of footsteps 
    those of survivors?"
    
    --------------------
    Notice to all Staff
    --------------------
    (This document is very old. Much of the writing is illegible).
    
    Regular meetings of the Vaccine Research and Infectious Agents teams will 
    be held.
    
    Both meetings are Security Level 5 and will be held in the following 
    locations:
    
    1F W Operations Control Room
    2F SE Meeting Room
    
    The entry code shall be "8:15" Thank you.
    Explanation: To unlock the doors with a face of the clock on it, a clock 
    must be set to the position of 8:15.

    Regulations for Trainees

    Training facility Mission
    
    This Training facility will raise a new generation of model employees to 
    serve the future of Umbrella Corp.
    
    Applying the strictest and most rigorous training standards, this facility 
    will, without regard for gender, race or creed, produce only the best 
    candidates to be the global future leaders of Umbrella Corporation.
    
    We look forward to the development of your leadership qualities.
    
    Training facility Guidelines
    
    Discipline. Obedience. Unity. (1)
    
    These three words are the basic principles which govern Umbrella 
    Corporation employees, and are to be considered the Law of this facility. 
    Keep these words in mind at all times. (2) Devote yourselves to your 
    training and bring honor to yourselves and the corporation.
    
    James Marcus
    Director,
    Umbrella Corporation
    Management Training facility.
    Explanations:
    (1) Later, there is a device in the Observatory of the facility, that 
    requires the insertion of 3 tablets with the basic principles of Umbrella.
    (2) Ironic, isn't it? Marcus set these fine rules for his employees to 
    follow, and yet he seemed to care for his own interests and broke his own 
    rules. In the future, you will witness many Umbrella researchers who 
    disobey these rules, and disaster results. They include Albert Wesker (RE), 
    William Birkin (RE2) and Alfred Ashford (RE:CV), Now I am not surprised 
    why Spencer had to use his special force team led by Hunk to retrieve 
    different virus samples, as they tend to keep it for themselves.

    Assistant Director'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. (1) They might have a future.
    
    September 25th
    Scholar Will. Practical Al.
    They really are opposites.
    And they're always competitive in everything they do.
    There's something ruthless and cruel about them both...
    
    October 7th
    Got a sudden call from the Director.
    It was to tell me to encourage a rivalry 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. (2)
    Explanations:
    (1) They are actually William Birkin and Albert Wesker.
    (2) Instead of being bitter rivals between each other, they actually became 
    friends, and did a lot of traitorous things against Umbrella in the future.
    This shows that they are very disobedient, undisciplined and disunited, 
    contrary to the three principles of Umbrella. How ironic.

    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 thing.
    
    This itself is the keystone,
    
    The pointer to glory
    
    All our hands cannot open the door to the heaven.

    Numbers appear on the seats of the conference room.
    Explanation: Each desk is responsible for entering one number of a code 
    in the conference room. For example, pressing the switch on the desk marked
    0 results in the code 0 being input.
    
    With his file, go all the way back to the conference room, ignoring the

    Chess Puzzle
    From the chessboard on the desk, we know that the White King must be pushed 
    so that it lands on the H7 square. For those people who don't play chess, 
    it is the space below the White Rook's. Afterwards, the chessboard will 
    slide open, revealing a Book of Evil. Open it for the Black Wing. There 
    is also an extract of Marcus's Diary.

    Marcus's Diary 1
    -----------------
    December 4th
    We finally did it... the new virus!
    We have called it the "Progenitor". (1)
    I want to carry it back and start detailed investigations immediately.
    
    March 23rd
    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's because of the business, but he's becoming incredibly pushy.
    But, maybe I can turn this to my advantage. (2)
    
    I need a special facility to properly explore all this virus's 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 nothing more than a money-spinning tool. Fool!
    
    But if 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. (3)
    
    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 the breakthrough I needed... (4)
    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 mammalian subject for the experiments. (5) 
    Otherwise, I'll never make 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 intelligence, 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... 
    (6)
    
    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 the work of 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 pests... (7)
    Those two are the only ones I trust. Apart from my beloved leeches, of 
    course.
    
    But Spencer... It wouldn't end there, would it? (8)
    I will announce "t" at the next directors meeting, and collect my just 
    rewards...
    Explanations:
    (1) The Progenitor Virus is one of the virus experimented on Lisa and
    Jessica Trevor.
    (2) Even the early people of Umbrella seemed to care for their own interests, 
    in contrary to every one else's.
    (3) The reason for disunity inside Umbrella: When there is a difference 
    in opinion between two senior researchers, and one of the researcher's 
    works are rejected, that researcher would still be stubborn and try to 
    continue his research underground. Rivalries arise.
    (4) The T-Virus was actually invented by Dr. Marcus, instead of William
    Birkin.
    (5) Although the majority of Umbrella is against experimenting on humans, 
    some crazed senior researchers resort to extreme measures to perfect their 
    viruses. Unfortunately, only maniacs and traitors have any success in 
    Umbrella, and that is why many people perceive Umbrella as an "evil 
    organization". In my opinion, Umbrella is just "misunderstood".
    (6) One of the earliest examples of infighting in Umbrella Corporation, 
    I guess. This is really unacceptable, as Marcus set the guidelines 
    "Discipline, Obedience, Unity" for his trainees, and yet he went the whole 
    lot breaking his own rules.
    (7) It seemed that Dr. Marcus trusted William Birkin and Albert Wesker 
    with his life in the old days, and unfortunately, he will pay dearly for 
    that in the future.
    (8) Spencer, eventually would have Marcus assassinated. In my opinion, 
    to prevent anymore employees, high and low, from doing unauthorized 
    activities behind the back of Spencer, Spencer should implement Stalin's 
    Purges onto Umbrella, killing and firing those personnel who do not 
    completely agree with him.

    1st Investigator Unit Notes
    ----------------------------
    We are searching the facilities, and it looks like a lot of the chemicals 
    survived.
    
    Fortunately, the storage tanks are still all 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. (1)
    
    The chemicals are scattered all about, not because of the accident, more 
    a result of plain mismanagement.
    
    When we re-open the facilities, we will have to develop a system for dealing 
    with these chemicals.
    
    (Something is scrawled on the back of the note).
    
    Red + Blue = Sulfuric Acid (2)
    Green + Red = Stripping Agent (3)
    (1) The chemicals found in tanks all around the place can be mixed with 
    Rebecca's Mixing Set to produce new chemicals.
    (2) Mixing Blue and Red Chemicals produces Sulfuric Acid.
    (3) Mixing Green and Red Chemicals produces a Stripping Agent.

    About the 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.
    Explanation: Solving the power regulator puzzle will stop the gush of steam 
    in the steam hall. The power is to be set to 70 volts.

    Management Trainee's Diary
    ---------------------------
    What is it 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. (1)
    
    Again today...
    
    There were those horrible moans. Beyond that door.
    
    "Let sleeping dogs..."
    
    No way I'l go near them,. (2)
    
    Even if the Director tells me, I no want to end up like Dennis.
    
    That poor bastard.
    
    Scratching and scratching. Makes me itch jost watching him.
    
    Must maybe go
    IF can but hwo
    
    Dennis gone. I go
    Hungry...
    
    Help
             Mom.
    Explanations:
    (1) Dr. Marcus's leeches are T-virus enhanced.
    (2) The management trainee was infected by the T-virus since this point.

    Marcus's Diary 2
    -----------------
    (This page has been torn out).
    
    Trouble is likely, but I closed my babies up in a special capsule. But 
    it won't be safe if I hold it on to 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 out how to make it...
    Explanation: To open the capsule which contains the blue leech charm, 
    Rebecca has to mix Green and Red Chemicals to make the stripping agent.

    Leech Growth Records
    ---------------------
    February 3rd, 1978
    Administrated "t" into 4 leeches. (1)
    
    Their will to survive leads them first to parasitism and predation. Then 
    they breed and multiply.
    
    Such a single-minded biology makes them attractive candidates for 
    bio-weapons research.
    
    Afterwards, no major changes observed.
    
    February 10th, 1978
    7 days since administration of "t". Rapid growth to double former size, 
    signs of transformation emerging.
    
    Spawning successful.
    
    They double their numbers in one hour (2) , but their ravenous appetites 
    lead them to cannibalism.
    
    Hastened to increase food supply, but lost 2. (3)
    
    March 7th, 1978
    Provided them with live feed, but lost half when the life food fought back. 
    However, the leeches are learning from experience, and are beginning to 
    exhibit group 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?
    (5)
    How will the leeches respond?
    
    June 3rd, 1978
    A day worthy of commemoration.
    Today began to mimic me! (6)
    Surely they recognize their father...
    Wonderful children.
    No one will take you away...
    Explanations:
    (1) As the code was based on Marcus' leeches' growth, we know the first
    digit is 4.
    (2) Second digit= 4x2= 8
    (3) Third digit= 8-2 = 6
    (4) Fourth digit= 6/2 = 3. Therefore the combination is 4863.
    (5) Another typical behavior of Umbrella's senior researchers. They use 
    employees as guinea pigs. This practice is hated by the lower levels, but 
    unfortunately almost all of the high level researchers are maniacs and 
    like to use this technique. This is why Umbrella is regarded as evil.
    (6) This explains the humanoid leeches. The leeches became very loyal to
    Dr. James Marcus and started to combine together to look like him. Dr.
    Marcus is just as obsessive as Alexia Ashford. Instead of being obsessed 
    with ants, though, he is obsessed with leeches. Even sicker.
    
    ----------------------
    Investigator's Report
    ----------------------
    Dr. Marcus. Co-founder (1) , with President Spencer, of the Umbrella 
    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 the evidence of Dr. Marcus' research into the T-virus 
    prototype called "Progenitor".
    
    The evidence of years of hideous experimentation that used company 
    employees as guinea pigs. (2)
    
    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 Umbrella Corporation, I can't imagine that his research is 
    continuing.
    
    No... his experiments 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).
    Explanations:
    (1) Dr. Marcus was the co-founder of Umbrella with Lord Spencer.
    (2) So it shows that Dr. Marcus really experimented on people, and the 
    investigators don't like it. It seems that Umbrella is not that bad. But 
    it is just the people who are at the top who are insane.

    Old Photograph
    ---------------
    (There's something written on the back of the photograph).
    
    To James,
    To commemorate your graduation, 1939
    Explanation: This proves that Dr. Marcus graduated in 1939. This causes 
    Billy to wander who the messiah guy is.
    
    --------------
    BOW Report
    --------------
    Research to date has shown that when the Progenitor virus is administered 
    to living organisms, violent cellular changes cause a breakdown in the 
    system. Furthermore, no satisfactory method has been found to control the 
    organisms for use as weapons.
    
    Clearly, greater coordination 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 (1)
    Perhaps because these ancient animals have been genetically stable for 
    millennia, when administered with the progenitor virus they exhibited only 
    explosive, high energy growth and increased aggressiveness. It is 
    extremely difficult to envision using them as BOW.
    
    Amphibia (2)
    Injecting a frog with the virus resulted in an increase in leaping power 
    and abnormal tongue growth. However, no change in mental ability was 
    observed. Furthermore, an abnormal appetite resulted in the test subject 
    randomly attacking all moving objects. Usefulness for BOW is limited.
    
    Mammalia (3)
    The progenitor virus has merged with monkey's cellular DNA, resulting I 
    increased fertility The resulting young exhibited improved aggressiveness 
    and some increased mental capacity. (As a side effect, visual power was 
    lost, but this was offset by an improvement in hearing ability).
    However, they were unsatisfactory as weapons.
    
    It does seem that no progress can be made without making humans the base 
    organism.
    Explanations:
    (1) This describes the Plague Crawlers.
    (2) This describes the Lurker Frogs, which you will meet in the Treatment 
    Plant.

    Investigator's Report 2
    ------------------------
    We should have finished with this dump long ago. When this all stated, 
    did anyone expect that there would be guns blazing away like this?
    
    We weren't told a thing about these creatures attacking us at the 
    briefing...
    Guess they were a surprise to the head honchos too. The things in the woods 
    just starting to attack 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 is whether to use my last bullet on myself, 
    or on a friend...
    
    That's the only decision I have to make.
    Explanation: It seemed that the 1st Investigator Unit suffered a rather 
    sticky end...
    
    --------------------
    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 a specific gravity of 
    1.280+/-0.010 at 20C.
    
    Battery Acid Purity
    Take care that the dilute sulfuric acid solution is of a sufficient purity.
    Explanation: Later, Rebecca has to mix Battery Fluid for an empty battery.
    To do this, she has to mix sulfuric acid with industrial water.

    Treatment Plant Manager's Diary
    --------------------------------
    5/10
    Damn it! Why is normal industrial waste being delivered here? This is an 
    Umbrella Corporation 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.
    Explanation: This treatment plant was shut down because they keep receiving 
    materials that cannot be processed in the plant.

    Gate Operation Manual
    ----------------------
    To open the heliport in case of emergency, follow the procedures below:
    
    Removing the lock:
    
    There are four locking mechanisms in the room which must be activated in 
    this order:
    1. Southwest side
    2. Northwest side
    3. Southeast side
    4. West side
    Turn each of the mechanisms' handles to unlock the gate.
    Explanation: As Rebecca is the person who is responsible for turning the 
    handles, this file is practically useless to Billy.

    Appendix III. Wesker's Report
    ------------------------------
    Resident Evil 0 reveals more about the history of Umbrella, as well as 
    creating a lot of plot holes in the series too. You will find Albert Wesker 
    planning to leave Umbrella to join another company, but what was the man's 
    story? This is what is going to happen to Albert Wesker sometime after 
    the events of Resident Evil.
    
    My name is Albert Wesker. (You are shown Albert Wesker with the other STARS 
    Alpha Team members in the opening FMV of the original Resident Evil)
    
    I aspired to become a leading researcher at Umbrella Inc. (You are shown 
    the picture of Wesker with the other Umbrella researchers in a slide show.) 
    A pharmaceutical enterprise who covertly conduction Bio Organic Weapons, 
    better known as B.O.W., for development. (You are shown the empty streets 
    of Raccoon City during the opening FMV of Resident Evil 2.) But at the 
    leader development training ground situated in Raccoon City, I met a 
    brilliant and talented researcher who decided to take a different path 
    - William Birkin. (You are shown William Birkin gloating over his G-Virus.)
    
    In time I shifted my position to S.T.A.R.S., a Special Forces unit of the 
    Raccoon Police Department. Umbrella, for crisis management reasons of 
    their illegal Bio Organic Weapons development had many of its people 
    working in the police department. (You are shown the Raccoon Police 
    Department Police Station and a photograph of all the STARS members.)
    
    I became the leader of S.T.A.R.S. and conducted all sorts of intelligence 
    activities for Umbrella. As I continued to serve I devised my own plans 
    and waited for the right moment to execute them.
    
    Then at last, opportunity knocked.
    
    24th July, 1998
    
    The freak murder incidents had occurred in the forest near the mansion 
    started it all. The mansion was Umbrella's secret BOW laboratory and it 
    was clear that the in development T-Virus was the cause of the murder.
    
    Initially, Umbrella instructed me secretively to keep S.T.A.R.S. out of 
    the case, but with the heightened emotions of the citizens S.T.A.R.S. had 
    no choice but to move in.
    
    (You are shown the STARS walking in the forest.)
    
    That was when my next order was given. Dispatch S.T.A.R.S. to the mansion, 
    dispose of them, then report the situation to headquarters so that their 
    combat with the B.O.W. could be used for data analysis allowing Umbrella 
    a comprehensive portrait of the B.O.W.'s combat abilities.
    
    (Meanwhile, you are shown Joseph Frost calling to his teammates before 
    the Cerberus Dogs kill him.)
    
    From the 2 S.T.A.R.S. teams I first pitched in the Bravo Team. As expected, 
    the top elite of S.T.A.R.S. gave all they had and became useful sample 
    data. Then following, I geared up the Alpha Team to "search and rescue" 
    the lost Bravo Team. (There is a problem with the pictures here. After 
    all, Joseph Frost is not a Bravo Team member.) The members of the Alpha 
    Team also proved their worth and as expected many died.
    
    There were 5 Survivors from the initial 11 S.T.A.R.S. members. From the 
    Alpha Team were Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, and Barry Burton. And from 
    the Bravo Team were Rebecca Chambers and Enrico Marini. (You are shown 
    each STARS Alpha team member as they run away from the Cerberus Dogs.)
    
    (You are shown Chris, Jill and Wesker talking in the main hall. You are 
    then shown Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine as they fight against zombies, 
    crows and Cerberus Dogs.)
    
    It was time to begin executing my plans. In the midst of the whole affair 
    I could take Umbrella's ultimate Bio-Organic Weapon, the Tyrant, and join 
    forces with an opposing corporation of Umbrella. To buy into that opposing 
    corporation I would need the actual combat data of the Tyrant.
    
    (You are shown the prototype Tyrant. You also see the Hunters running into 
    the Mansion in the older FMV.) 
    
    The surviving privileged members of S.T.A.R.S. were just the perfect bait. 
    I decided to have one of them play the Judas and draw them to the Tyrant.
    
    (Meanwhile, you get to see Chris and Jill fighting even more monsters here 
    and there.)
    
    That Judas was Barry.
    
    (You are shown a cutscene involving Jill and Barry, as well as a photograph 
    of Barry with his family.)
    
    Barry was the strong truth and justice kind and cherished his family more 
    than anything. His type is easy to manipulate. I just took that most 
    important thing away from him. My only miscalculation was the high 
    potential of Chris and Jill. But with the family man Barry playing Judas 
    the scheme went as planned.
    
    (You see Chris and Jill as they fight even more monsters.)
    
    Then the winds turned unexpectedly.
    
    I had to eliminate Enrico who found out what was behind it all. I used 
    Barry to get to him. (You are shown Enrico talking to Jill underground 
    before someone shoots him dead.) After I successfully got rid of that 
    nuisance I awaited the sample specimen that Barry would bring to me in 
    the Tyrants room. (You are shown the older cut-scene between Wesker, Barry 
    and Jill. Jill is talking in a horrible voice.)
    
    I injected the virus I obtained from Birkin in advance. If I made Umbrella 
    believe I was dead, it made it far more convenient to sell myself to the 
    opposing corporation. According to Birkin the virus had profound effects. 
    It would put my body in a state of temporary "death." It would then bring 
    me back to life with super human powers. Therefore I unleashed an awesome 
    Tyrant from its slumber and let it attack me. (You are shown the Tyrant 
    knocking Wesker out.)
    
    As my consciousness faded away I was certain that the whole scheme would 
    end in success.
    
    Never did I imagine that S.T.A.R.S. could slay the evil creation. (You 
    are shown Chris blowing the Tyrant to bits with a Rocket Launcher) I lost 
    the Tyrant and the plan I devised which cost me my humanity ended in failure. 
    Now anything and anyone who stood in my way would be terminated. It's been 
    that way for a long time and it always will be. At all costs I had to make 
    S.T.A.R.S. pay. (You are shown Chris and Jill in the helicopter in the 
    closing FMV.)
    
    September, 1998
    
    Two months had passed since the mansion incident. To regain everything 
    I had lost in my new organization I joined hands with Ada Wong, a female 
    agent who was also sent to spy on Umbrella. (You are shown Ada Wong as 
    she meets Leon in the Police Station Parking Lot. You also see Annette 
    Birkin pointing her gun at Ada, saying that no one can take the G-Virus 
    away from her.)
    
    I knew in my bones that the key developer was William Birkin, but what 
    he didn't know was that Umbrella did not play games... with anyone. 
    Eventually, Birkin would be assassinated, and the G-Virus would be in the 
    hands of Umbrella. 
    
    (You are shown William Birkin in his confrontation with 2 Umbrella Agents. 
    An Umbrella Agent shot Birkin, badly injuring him while the other takes 
    the case of the G-Virus and the two leave.)
    
    But the salvage team led by Hunk was ahead of us. By the time they got 
    to Birkin, he'd already injected himself with the G-Virus... he became 
    his own creation, and decimated them. (You are shown how all the agents 
    attempt to fight William Birkin, and all of them were killed, except one.)
    
    Soon after, the T-Virus carried by rats spread throughout Raccoon City, 
    and Umbrella faced its worst scenario. (You get to see the rats moving 
    around the broken vials of T-Virus.)
    
    28th September, 1998
    
    The good citizens became zombies, and the city had headed for its 
    devastating fate. Humans were no match against zombies. (You get to see 
    the opening FMV of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis._
    
    In the chaos, Umbrella Europe applied a new type B.O.W., called "Nemesis". 
    The Nemesis would hunt down and destroy the surviving member of S.T.A.R.S., 
    Jill. It became imperative that our organization would also obtain the 
    Nemesis data. (You get to see Jill meeting Brad Vickers outside the R.P.D. 
    Precinct before the Nemesis kills Brad.)
    
    29th September, 1998
    
    (You are shown the opening FMV of Resident Evil 2, with Leon Scott Kennedy 
    and Claire Redfield driving off in a car.)
    
    To cover up the whole affair, Umbrella jettisoned a Tyrant to take care 
    of Leon and Claire, who were trying to unveil their secrets.
    
    (You are shown a T-103 Mr. X tyrant being airdropped into the Raccoon Police 
    Department by helicopter.)
    
    Then, a new revelation. Birkin used to hide the findings of his studies 
    in his daughter Sherry's pendant. (You are shown Sherry Birkin hugging 
    Claire.) It was very possible that the G-Virus was there. While Umbrella 
    was busy with their cover up, we had to capture Sherry before they did. 
    I sent Ada undercover to seek the location of Sherry. I, the "dead man" 
    on the other hand, had to work in the shadows. (You are shown Ada Wong 
    and Sherry running around in the Sewer and the Sewage Disposal Plant.)
    
    A spy's obligation and priority is in the mission, to carry out the mission 
    like a machine without any emotional interference. (You are shown Leon 
    interacting with Ada here and there. You are shown Leon fighting William 
    Birkin's 3rd form using a Gattling Cannon outside the train car on the 
    turntable.)
    
    But through her interaction and involvement with Leon S. Kennedy, there'd 
    been an affection growing inside her. (You are shown Leon talking with 
    the injured Ada as she lies down on a bed in the Security Room of the Birkin 
    Lab.
    
    My instincts sensed danger, something had to be done, quickly. My instincts 
    did not disappoint me. Even though Ada almost had her hands on the G-Virus, 
    which Leon had acquired from Sherry, that affection of hers drove her to 
    her death. (You are shown the cut-scene between Ada and Leon over the 
    Central Shaft, and Ada fell into the shaft.) But she was still of some 
    use. I had to save her life. My people hurried to retrieve the G-Virus 
    that Leon threw away. But Hunk, the only survivor of Umbrella's salvage 
    team, was there before us. (You are shown Leon throwing the G-Virus into 
    the shaft, and scenes of the 4th Survivor minigame, featuring Hunk. The 
    Timers are still shown.)
    
    30th September, 1998
    
    (You are shown Leon in his final fight with the T-103 Tyrant. Leon finishes 
    him off with a Rocket Launcher thrown to him by Ada.)
    
    Our only option left was to bring back Birkin, the monster, as the sample 
    specimen and have him finish off Leon and Claire in order to obtain his 
    combat data. Although Birkin lost the battle to Leon and Claire, we 
    succeeded in gathering samples of the G-Virus from his dead body.
    
    1st October, 1998
    (You are shown the final FMV of Claire B Scenario of Resident Evil 2.)
    
    In the morning the government bombed Raccoon City in an attempt to stop 
    for the viral outbreak. This was, of course, their feigned reason.
    
    (You are shown the ending FMV of Resident Evil 3, where Jill and Carlos 
    Oliveira took off in a helicopter before Raccoon City was nuked.)
    
    Later, Claire left for Europe to find her lost brother Chris, and Leon 
    joined forces with a underground anti-Umbrella organization. (You are 
    shown the final FMV of Claire B Scenario of Resident Evil 2.
    
    Sherry is safe in our hands. I would never underestimate Birkin.
    
    (You are shown Sherry Birkin unconscious as she is imprisoned behind bars.)
    
    There's something about this little girl..."
    
    Analysis:
    Albert Wesker's purpose of life is to be a leading research of a large 
    pharmaceutical company called Umbrella that develops bioweapons 
    underground.
    
    However, he decided to take a different path after having met another 
    researcher in Raccoon City called William Birkin. Later, Albert Wesker 
    joined the Raccoon Police Department, and became the head of a division 
    known as the Special Tactics and Rescue Service, or S.T.A.R.S. After all, 
    Umbrella had many people working in the Police Department to ensure their 
    security.
    
    Meanwhile, Albert Wesker made his own plans and waited for the moment to 
    execute them. At last, his chance came on July 24, 1998.
    
    Some strange occurrences in Raccoon Forest started the incident. The 
    mission was to investigate a mansion in which Umbrella conducted various 
    experiments with their bioweapons. At first, Umbrella tried to keep Wesker 
    out of it, but due to the reactions of the general public, and S.T.A.R.S. 
    had to move in.
    
    Therefore, Albert Wesker was given a new mission, to lure the S.T.A.R.S. 
    members into the estate, and wipe them out, then report to the Umbrella 
    Headquarters so that their combat data with the bioweapons can be used 
    for useful data analysis.
    
    First, Albert Wesker sent in the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team, the Bravo Team 
    fought the bioweapons and provided useful combat data. Then, he sent in 
    the Alpha Team to rescue the lost Bravo Team. They also struggled with 
    the bioweapons, and as a result, many members died.
    
    Of the Alpha Team, there were 3 survivors, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine 
    and Barry Burton, on the other hand, Rebecca Chambers and Enrico Marini 
    also survived.
    
    Wesker then decided to make one of the survivors act as the traitor and 
    lead them to the Tyrant. He chose Barry Burton.  Barry is a person who 
    loves his family more than anything in the world, and such people are easy 
    to manipulate. All Wesker had to do was to kidnap his wife and his two 
    daughters to make him work for him.
    
    The whole plot was going well, in spite of the superior combat abilities 
    of Chris and Jill, but suddenly, the tides turned. It seemed that the 
    S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team leader, Enrico Marini had discovered the plot and 
    therefore had to be eliminated. To kill him, Albert Wesker sent Barry in 
    and he shot him dead. He then waited for Barry to bring him Jill to the 
    Tyrant's Experiment Room.
    
    Before all this happened, Albert Wesker injected a virus William Birkin 
    prepared for him in advance. This virus would put Albert's body through 
    a temporary stage of death, and then will allow Albert Wesker to regain 
    consciousness with super powers. If he gives Umbrella the impression that 
    he was dead, then it would be even easier to carry out his plans. Therefore, 
    he deliberately let the Tyrant stab through him. As Albert Wesker fainted, 
    he was sure that his plan will succeed.
    
    However, he never expected that S.T.A.R.S. could kill the Tyrant, and his 
    plan that cost him his humanity failed. Albert Wesker then swore revenge 
    against S.T.A.R.S. or anyone that got in the way of his plans. 
    
    Two months, later, in September, Albert Wesker decided to join forces with 
    an agent who was sent to spy on Umbrella called Ada Wong.
    
    Ada Wong's target was the G-Virus. Albert Wesker knew that William Birkin 
    was the key researcher behind the virus, and what William Birkin did not 
    know was that Umbrella does not like people to mess with them. Eventually, 
    William Birkin will be assassinated, and Umbrella would have obtained the 
    G-Virus from him.
    
    That was the work of Hunk's Team, by the time they had reached William 
    Birkin, he had already injected T-virus into his own body, and he became 
    a G-type, and killed all of them except for Agent Hunk.
    
    Meanwhile, the T-Virus was spread in the sewers by rats throughout Raccoon 
    City. As a result, most Raccoon City residents turned into zombies, and 
    humans were no match against them.
    
    At the same time, Umbrella sent in their new bioweapon prototype, called 
    the Nemesis, which is also an improved Tyrant. The Nemesis' mission was 
    to eliminate any remaining S.T.A.R.S. members in Raccoon City. It was also 
    important that Wesker's new organization could obtain the Nemesis data.
    
    While that was happening, Leon and Claire's actions in Raccoon City made 
    life difficult for Umbrella, and they sent in a Tyrant to eliminate them.
    
    Wesker also made a new discovery. William Birkin used to hide his 
    discoveries inside his daughter, Sherry's pendant. He thought that the 
    G-Virus sample was very likely to be inside it. Therefore, Wesker's men 
    had to capture Sherry. Ada Wong was sent to look for her, while Wesker 
    had to work in the background to avoid detection from Umbrella.
    
    Wesker believed that as a spy, Ada Wong had to work without any emotional 
    interference from other people. However, her growing love and care for 
    Leon was starting to trouble him. Wesker was convinced that Ada would be 
    in danger if she continued to be like that, and he was right. Ada almost 
    got the G-Virus, but she was shot in the back while she tried to get it 
    from Leon, and she fell to her doom in a shaft. But Ada was still some 
    use to Wesker, and that was why he saved her. His men hurried to recover 
    the vial of G-Virus that Leon had thrown away, but Hunk got it before they 
    did. As a result, the one remaining option was to let William Birkin kill 
    Leon and Claire so that they can obtain his combat data. But still, Birkin 
    was killed, and Wesker's men ended up picking a G-virus sample from his 
    dead body.
    
    In the morning of October 1st, the US Government nuked Raccoon City to 
    stop further spreading of the T-Virus, that was their excuse. Claire left 
    for Europe to continue her search for her brother Chris, and Leon joined 
    an anti-Umbrella organization.
    
    Meanwhile, Sherry was kidnapped by Wesker. Let's hope she is not going 
    to be sexually assaulted or anything...

    Appendix IV. Wesker's Report II
    --------------------------------
    At the release of the Resident Evil Remake, Capcom wrote another background 
    story of the Resident Evil series, with Albert Wesker as the narrator. 
    This traces back 20 years before the mansion incident in 1998, and helps 
    to explain some of the newer things in Resident Evil, like Lisa, and may 
    explain some things about Resident Evil Zero.
    
    Story 1: "Woman Specimen Subject"
    
    31st July, 1978 (Monday)
    
    It was summer, 20 years ago and I was 18 years old when I visited there 
    for the first time. I can still smell the stench of the air stirred up 
    by the helicopter's rotor blades.
    
    The mansion looked perfectly ordinary from the sky, but on the ground, 
    I sensed something that made me fear to tread. Birkin, who was two years 
    younger than me, was interested in nothing but the research paper her was 
    reading.
    
    We had only been assigned to that place two days previously, the same day 
    they decided to close down the executive training centre we belonged to. 
    This looked either carefully planned or pure coincidence, only Spencer 
    knows. Here, Arclay Laboratory, was the very place where Spencer himself 
    had a base for 'T-virus' research.
    
    As we got off the helicopter, we saw the Laboratory Manager was waiting 
    for us at the lift. I can't even remember the guy's name. No matter what 
    his official title, the laboratory belonged to Birkin and I from that day. 
    We were given full authority as chief research engineers. This was of course 
    Spencer's intention. We had been chosen.
    
    We completely ignored the Laboratory Manager and got into the lift as the 
    previous day I had memorised a map of the building. As for Birkin, he didn't 
    mean any offence but he never had tie for others.
    
    Being in our company for more than five seconds would have made most people 
    angry. The Laboratory Manager, however, showed no response.
    
    As I was an egoistic young man these days, I did not take any notice of 
    his lack of reaction.
    
    After all, while I was there I was merely dancing to Spencer's tune and 
    the Lab Manager knew his intention better than I did and acted accordingly.
    
    While we were in the lift, Birkin was concentrating on the papers, which 
    contained detailed reports on Ebola, a Filovirius, which had been 
    discovered in Africa two years ago.
    
    Even now, many people across the world are still studying Ebola. But there 
    are two distinct reasons why. Some are studying the virus in order to save 
    lives, while others have more sinister reasons.
    
    90% of those infected with the Ebola virus will die. Once infected, body 
    tissue is destroyed within ten days. There is no vaccination and no cure. 
    If used as a weapon it is incredibly frightening. Of course the treaty 
    on Prohibition of Use of Biological Weapons had been in effect long before 
    that so it was illegal to conduct research on the potential use of the 
    virus as a weapon. However, it's perfectly legal to conduct research on 
    it to prevent its spreading if it was used by someone else as a weapon.
    
    It is only a thin line between the two researches - in fact there is 
    practically no difference between the two. As you must investigate how 
    it can be used as a weapon in order to know how it can be stopped.
    
    This means it is possible to pretend that research is for the purpose of 
    prevention and cure while your true aim is the opposite.
    
    However, Birkin was interested in neither of these routes as the virus 
    had too many imperfections.
    
    Firstly, it dies easily when in contact with direct sunlight and can only 
    survive outside the body for a few days.
    
    Secondly, the virus does not have enough time to move onto the next host 
    as it kills its initial host too quickly.
    
    Lastly, the virus is transmitted in body fluids and secretions, which can 
    easily be prevented.
    
    However, consider this:
    
    What if the person infected with the virus, could stand up and walk? And 
    if, subconsciously they sought direct physical contact with uninfected 
    people?
    
    The Ebola gene is an RNA gene. RNA genes can mutate a human's genes and 
    that mutation would allow the human to have monster-like semi immortality?
    
    This creature would be a @Human Biological Weapon' - to all intents and 
    purposes dead as a human being but still infecting other humans as long 
    as it is alive.
    
    It was lucky for us that Ebola did not exhibit such characteristics. We 
    could keep the Ebola with that particular capacity just for ourselves.
    
    The organization, which was established around Spencer, was for the 
    manufacture of this 'living weapon'. Officially, it was a pharmaceutical 
    company specializing in a cure for the virus, nut in reality it was a factory 
    producing biological weapons.
    
    The discovery of the 'Founder Virus' which can modify genes seemed to be 
    the genesis of this whole business.
    
    In order to manufacture the 'Human Biological Weapon' from the 'Founder 
    virus', t was necessary to develop a variant with that particular 
    peculiarity enhanced.
    
    That was the T-virus project.
    
    The 'Founder virus' is an RNA virus. RNA viruses are known to have a tendency 
    to mutilate. That tendency enables us to manipulate them, strengthening 
    their certain peculiarities.
    
    Birkin wondered if he could combine the Ebola gene with the mutated 'Founder 
    virus' to enhance its peculiarity. The sample of the Ebola virus had already 
    arrived to this laboratory.
    
    After switching from lift to lift we eventually reached the top security 
    unit of the laboratory.
    
    Even Birkin took his eyes off his report when we met 'her' for the first 
    time.
    
    We knew nothing about her. She was the biggest secret at the laboratory 
    and her data was never removed from the premises.
    
    The records showed that she had been there ever since the institute was 
    established.
    
    She was 25 years old.
    No one knew who she was or why she was there,
    
    She was a human specimen to develop the 'T-virus' on.
    
    The experiment started on the 10th November 1967.
    She had been receiving injections of viruses for 11 years.
    
    Birkin mumbled something - 
    
    Was it to curse? Or to praise?
    
    We realized that there was no turning back.
    
    Were we to lead the research to a successful conclusion or rot away like 
    her? Of course we had no choice.
    
    The sight of her bound to a shabby hospital bed moved something in out 
    conscience.
    
    Was it apart of Spencer's plan? 
    
    (Record continues three years later)
    
    
    
    Story 2: 'Alexia 1'
    
    27th July 1981 (Sat)
    
    (Three years after the previous report)
    
    Today a 10 year old girl was appointed as a senior researcher at the South 
    Pole Laboratory.
    
    Her name was Alexia Ashford.
    
    I was 21 years old and Birkin was 19.
    
    Irritatingly, the rumour about Alexia of the South Pole monopolised 
    discussions amongst Arclay's researchers.
    
    The Ashford name was legendary to the old staff who had been at Umbrella 
    long enough to remember.
    
    Whenever the research came to a standstill they always said 'If only Dr 
    Ashford was still alive".
    
    Certainly Dr Ashford was a great scientist, one of the original research 
    team who discovered the 'Founder virus', and the originator of the 
    'T-virus' project.
    
    However, he died soon after Umbrella was established. 13 years has passed 
    since his death. What was the point of expecting anything from the 
    Ashford's?
    
    In fact the South Pole laboratory, which was founded after Dr Edward's 
    death by his son, had so far yielded no results.
    
    So, not much can be expected from the granddaughter, Alexia!
    
    However, from that day, our dotard subordinates started saying 'If only 
    Ms Alexia were here'.
    
    It seemed like there was no potential for future development in this lab, 
    as long as we had staff like those bunch of idiots, who could only judge 
    people by their genealogy, instead of using their own sense of values.
    
    Those fools could never take initiative and would remain as minor 
    researchers even though they had one foot in the grave. But I was different, 
    I had good judgment.
    
    If I, as the chief researcher, had become emotional, the development of 
    the 'T-virus' would have been delayed further.
    
    To achieve results, one must stay calm and make sensible decisions whatever 
    the circumstances.
    
    An idea came to me - 
    
    The success of the research relied on how to handle those ancient gentlemen. 
    As they could drop dead at any moment, wouldn't they be most useful if 
    we were to use them for the most dangerous experiments.
    
    The art of management is to utilize everyone beneath you.
    
    However, Birkin was becoming a nuisance.
    
    His reaction towards the Alexia rumors was so pathetic.
    
    Although he never said it, he took pride in becoming the youngest ever 
    chief researcher at the age of 16. But this 10 year old girl had smashed 
    his figurative trophy to pieces. It must have been the first time he had 
    felt defeated.
    
    He could never approve of someone who was younger, with breeding, and a 
    woman.
    
    It was unimaginable that he was being affected by a personnel reshuffle 
    in such a far away place, where there had been no achievements for so long. 
    After all, he was still a kid.
    
    Immature as he was, I needed him to pull himself together.
    
    Over the last three years our research had reached the second stage.
    
    By then, the 'T-virus' was becoming stable enough to be used to create 
    'Living Biological Weapons', better known as Zombies.
    
    However, the virus would never be able to modify the human gene 100% - 
    there are compatibilities between the virus and the genes because no one 
    person's genes are exactly alike.
    
    10% of all humans would make a lucky escape and not develop the disease, 
    even though a zombie infected them with the virus. There was nothing we 
    could do about this, no matter how hard we tried.
    
    If it had a 90% success rate then it was good enough to use as a biological 
    weapon. But Spencer didn't seem to be satisfied.
    
    Our boss wanted a 'stand-alone' weapon which could wipe out and entire 
    population.
    
    But, what for?
    
    Essentially, the virtue of biological weapons was the low development costs. 
    But out 'Living Biological Weapon' was becoming extremely expensive.
    
    Spencer would never have chosen this path if he was looking for financial 
    rewards.
    
    If manufactured for use in conjunction with an orthodox weapon, it would 
    have made a handsome profit. But to keep the research going to make a 
    stand-alone, exterminatory weapon did not make business sense.
    
    Why did he continue ignoring the cost?
    
    If his aim was to monopolise the entire war industry by changing the very 
    concepts of war, perhaps I could agree a little bit.
    
    I still didn't know what his true intention was.
    
    Apart from Spencer's intention, Birkin was engineering a living biological 
    weapon with an increased emphasis on its ability to fight.
    
    He was trying to create it not only through mutating human genes with the 
    'T-virus' buts also by adding another creature's genetic information.
    
    The fighting living biological weapon would kill all human beings, 
    including those wearing body armour, or equipped with biological warfare 
    suits and those humans who escaped from death through infection. It was 
    called 'The Hunter'.
    
    But we had to suspend the experiment for a while - to protect the specimens 
    from Birkin.
    
    Birkin, who had this meaningless anger directed at Alexia, started acting 
    abnormally.
    
    He worked through the night at the lab time after time and repeated 
    disorganized experiments one after another.
    
    Me and my staff collected biopsy samples as quickly as possible before 
    the specimens could die, but we couldn't keep up with his speed.
    
    The Manager of the Laboratory supplied the new specimens as if nothing 
    had happened, but they didn't survive long.
    
    It was Hell.
    
    But she, the female specimen survived the hell.
    
    She was 28 years old by then and had spent 14 years in this lab.
    
    The numerous injections of the 'Founder' virus she had received over the 
    past 14 years would have left her bereft or any logical reasoning, but 
    if she still had any mind left, death would have been the one and only 
    thing she wanted.
    
    But, she continued to live. Why was she the only one to survive?
    
    The experiment data did not highlight and difference between her and the 
    other specimens.
    
    We needed much more time to find out the answers to that question.

    Story 3 : 'Alexia 2'
    
    31st December 1983
    
    (Two years after the previous record)
    
    My 6th winter at Arclay Laboratory.
    
    Two almost stagnant years had passed without much achievement, but the 
    turning point has finally arrived.
    
    The catalyst was a report we received that morning.
    
    Alexia had died at the South Pole institute.
    
    It was said that Alexia was accidentally infected by the T-Veronica virus 
    which she herself had developed.
    
    At that time, Alexia was 12 years old, and was too young to continue this 
    kind of dangerous research.
    
    A rumor began to circulate that Alexia had deliberately infected herself 
    with the virus, but that seemed very unlikely. More likely, she had not 
    got over the death of her father a year earlier and had made an error.
    
    At the South Pole institute, Alexia's research was then taken over by her 
    twin brother, her only blood relative. But no one expected any worthwhile 
    results from him. The Ashford family line seemed to have almost died out 
    without producing anything of note. As I suspected, the legend surrounding 
    this family was no more than that.
    
    Alexia's death changed Birkin - or should I say it transformed Birkin back 
    to the person he once was. It played a major factor in Birkin's 
    psychological well-being as his researchers started showing him more 
    respect. With Alexia dead, these was no longer anyone who exhibited greater 
    potential than him.
    
    However, talking about Alexia in front of him was still a taboo.
    
    Birkin strongly disagreed when I tried to get a hold of a T-Veronica sample.
    
    I had to bide my time to find a better opportunity to find out about Alexia's 
    research.
    
    In spite of the fact that Birkin was in much stronger position he still 
    never grew up.
    
    However, in those days, I had much bigger issues to contend with.
    
    The Arclay Laboratory was situated in the centre of a mountainous region, 
    itself surrounded by a deep forest. I often went out for walks during my 
    time there, but I never came across anyone else.
    
    Helicopter was the only means of reaching the laboratory, making it 
    inaccessible to outsiders. The remoteness of the area and lack of people 
    is an important factor when choosing a site for an institute like this, 
    in order to minimise a potential disaster if the virus escaped.
    
    However, biological weapons were not as simple as that.
    
    The viruses would not just infect human beings.
    
    No virus chooses just one type of carrier.
    
    For Example, apart from humans, the influenza virus can infect birds, pigs, 
    horses and even sea lions.
    
    It complicates the matter further when you know that not all the species 
    of the same family can be infected. For instance, ducks and chickens might 
    become infected, but other species of birds are spared. More over, the 
    same virus may take different carriers, depending on its variants. It is 
    impossible to know all the carriers for even just one virus.
    
    The biggest problem is the high adaptability of the 'T-virus'.
    
    While Birkin was not contributing much I had been studying the possibility 
    of secondary infection from the 'T-virus'. What I discovered was that the 
    'T-virus' has carriers in almost every single species. Not only animals, 
    but plants, insects, fish almost all the species have a potential to 
    multiply and spread the 'T-virus'
    
    When I was strolling through the woods I always thought - 
    
    Why did Spencer choose this location?
    
    There were so many species that co-existed in the forest.
    
    What would happen if the virus escaped and came into contact with a creature 
    capable of being a carrier ?
    
    If it were some insects, then they would not pose a big threat of secondary 
    infection due to their size.
    
    But insects can multiply to enormous numbers.
    
    In that case, how far could the virus be spread? 
    
    Suppose it was some plants. It may appear at first that the possibility 
    of widespread infection would be small as plants cannot move.
    
    But what about their pollen?
    
    This location was too dangerous.
    
    Come to think of it, it made perfect sense for the Ashford's to choose 
    the South Pole as a site for their laboratory.
    
    In contrast, this location, it seems, was selected in order to spread the 
    virus.
    
    But that couldn't be true, could it?
    
    What did Spencer want us to do?
    
    These thoughts were too important to share with anybody else in the 
    laboratory.
    
    The only person I could possibly ask was Birkin. But, it was obvious there 
    was no point in talking to him about it.
    
    What I needed was more information.
    
    Around this time, I started to feel the limitations of my situation.
    
    In order to find out Spencer's true intention, I needed to be in a position 
    which would give me access to the information I required.
    
    I had no hesitation in giving up me present position for the purpose. But 
    I did not want to be too hasty because if Spencer had any suspicions about 
    my real motives, then the game would be up.
    
    I concentrated on my research with Birkin so that me real thoughts 
    would not betray me.
    
    While we were keeping ourselves busy, the female specimen was almost 
    forgotten about.
    
    A failure, with no use, but still she lived on. We called her a failure 
    because we could not get any valid data from her.
    
    Until that experiment took place, five years later.
    
    (Record continues five years later)
    
    Story 4: 'Nemesis'
    
    1st July 1988 (Fri)
    
    (Five years after the last record)
    
    It was our 11th summer since we arrived at the Arclay Laboratory.
    
    I was 28 year's old.
    
    Birkin was then, a father with a two year old girl. His partner was also 
    a researcher at Arclay.
    
    It was hard to believe that anyone could marry and bring up a child while 
    both of them worked there. On the other hand, because he was different 
    he could continue his research at Arclay.
    
    Only the mad could succeed there.
    
    In those 10 years, our research finally reached the third stage.
    
    A highly sophisticated 'Fighting Biological Weapon' - with intelligence, 
    which would obey programmed orders and act as a soldier. That was the 
    monster we tried to create and we called it 'The Tyrant'.
    
    But, from the beginning there was one huge obstacle - it was almost 
    impossible to obtain a living subject on which we could base the Tyrant. 
    The supply of genetically adaptable human beings for the Tyrant was 
    extremely limited.
    
    This is due to the nature of the 'T-virus'.
    
    The 'T-virus' variant which was ideal to create the zombies and the Hunters 
    was suitable for most humans, but it had a fault of making the carrier's 
    brain cells decline.
    
    To transform the carrier into a Tyrant we needed to keep the carrier's 
    intelligence at a certain level. In order to overcome this issue, Birkin 
    had been working on extracting a variant which would cause the least damage 
    to the brain when it was adapted perfectly to the carrier.
    
    However, humans with a genetic match to this variant were extremely rare.
    
    The Genetic Analytic team's simulation report told us that only one in 
    ten million would be infected and transformed into a Tyrant with the 
    remainder becoming zombies.
    
    It might have been possible to develop a more progressive strain of the 
    'T-virus' which could make transform more humans into Tyrants. However, 
    to push the research further, first of all we required human subjects with 
    a perfect genetic match to the new variant.
    
    There was little possibility that such a specimen would be supplied to 
    us, because even if we scoured the whole USA, we would only be able to 
    find 50 or so of them. In fact, at the time, even with the utmost effort 
    we only managed to collect a few specimens with a close match.
    
    Even from the outset, pour research was at a standstill.
    
    But one day, we heard a rumour that a European laboratory were working 
    on a project to create the third generation Living Biological Weapon.
    
    It was called the 'Nemesis Project'.
    
    I acted quickly to obtain a sample from the project so that I could use 
    it to our advantage. Of course, Birkin was against this idea, but this 
    time I somehow managed to persuade him. He had no choice but to admit that 
    our research wouldn't go any further unless we found the matching specimen.
    
    A few days later, in the middle of the night, a parcel arrived from Europe 
    via various transit points. It arrived to out heliport in a small box.
    
    "Nemesis Prototype"
    
    We had to pull many strings to obtain if from the French laboratory where 
    it had been developed, but it could not have happened without the support 
    of Spencer.
    
    Birkin showed no interest at all, but he accepted the importance of the 
    experiment.
    
    The sample had been developed with a new design in mind.
    
    A parasitic living body, created by genetically modification - that was 
    Nemesis.
    
    A living body with intelligence, which was unable to do anything on its 
    own.
    
    However, once it parasitized the brain of another living being it would 
    take full control of the body and demonstrate its highly developed aptitude 
    for combat. The project was to provide the intelligence and the biological 
    body for combat separately and then combine them in order to create one 
    living biological weapon.
    
    If it was successful we no longer needed to worry about the problems we 
    had previously encountered.
    
    But there was a new problem in that it did not always settle in the carrier 
    in the same manner as we desired.
    
    On the report attached to the sample we saw nothing but a long list of 
    deaths.
    
    The carriers lasted for only about five minutes after Nemesis took control 
    of their brains.
    
    But, we already knew that an incomplete prototype would be extremely 
    dangerous.
    
    If we succeeded in prolonging the carriers' survival then we could hope 
    to take the lead in the Nemesis project. 
    
    This was my aim.
    
    Naturally, I was planning to use the female specimen.
    
    With her unusual ability to survive, she could endure the Nemesis prototype 
    for a long time.
    
    Even if we failed, we would lose nothing.
    
    However, out experiments took an unexpected turn.
    
    Nemesis vanished when it tried to enter her brain.
    
    At first, we could not understand what happened.
    
    We never though that she would take over the parasite.
    
    That was the beginning.
    
    Until then, she was barely alive, but something was about to awake in her.
    
    We had to start examining her afresh.
    
    Over the last 10 years, she had been checked down to the minutest details, 
    but we decided to ignore the past data and start anew. Now, for the first 
    time in her 21 years of being here, something no one had seen was about 
    to be revealed.
    
    After much examination, only Birkin noticed it.
    
    Something definitely existed in her.
    
    This, however, went beyond the original 'T-virus' project and led us in 
    a totally new and different direction.
    
    That was the beginning of 'G-Virus' project, which changed all our 
    destinies.
    
    (Record continues seven years later)
    
    Story : 5 'G-Virus'
    
    31st July 1995 (Mon)
    
    (Seven years after the previous record)
    
    It was summer again and 17 years from the time I first visited the place.
    
    Whenever I went there I always remember the smell of the winds from that 
    day. Nothing has changed since then, even the buildings and surroundings.
    
    I could see Birkin, who had already arrived, standing on the heliport.
    
    I had not seen him for a long time.
    
    Four years have passed since I left Arclay Laboratory.
    
    At that time, when Birkin's 'G-virus' project was approved, I applied for 
    my transfer to the Information Bureau and was readily accepted. It must 
    have looked natural for everyone that I was giving up my career as a 
    researcher and seeking a change.
    
    Actually, the 'G-virus' project was beyond my abilities. Even if I did 
    not have any reason to find out Spencer's true intention, it was true that 
    I felt my faculties as a researcher had reached their limits.
    
    In spite of the downdraft caused by the helicopter, Birkin never took his 
    eyes off the research papers. Although it seemed he still visited Arclay 
    regularly, he was no longer a researcher at that facility.
    
    Sometime ago, he had been transferred to a hug underground laboratory in 
    Raccoon City, which was his base for the G-virus project headed up by 
    himself.
    
    Quite honestly, four years ago, I never thought that Spencer would approve 
    the 'G-virus' project because it was founded on an unknown belief and 
    deviated from the original concept of a biological weapon.
    
    The distinct difference between the 'G-virus' and the T-Virus was that 
    the organism infected but the 'G-virus' continued to mutate by itself. 
    Because a virus is an unprotected form of gene, it can easily mutate. This 
    mutation can happen when a virus is left on its own, but once a virus is 
    in other organism, it is a different story.
    
    A gene in an organism's body hardly mutates even though its structure was 
    modified by a virus, unless some external influences, such as exposure 
    to radiation, takes place. However, an organism infected with the 'G-virus' 
    keeps mutating itself without any external influence until it dies.
    
    Similar characteristics did exist in the 'T-virus'.
    
    When we placed the 'Living Biological Weapon' under certain circumstances, 
    we recorded some genetic recombination caused by an activated virus in 
    its own body. However, in the case of the T-Virus, it always needed some 
    external influences to trigger the recombination and the results were 
    always close to what we predicted.
    
    G-infected organisms totally lacked such predictability.
    
    No one could foresee what recombination it would take, and whatever the 
    means to stop the process it kept mutating nonetheless making our 
    manipulation worthless.
    
    Seven years ago, Birkin found similar signs of this effect in the female 
    specimen. On the surface she had not changed at all, but internally, she 
    changed continuously and remained alive by merging and coexisting with 
    all the experimental viruses she was administered. And the 21 years of 
    internal mutation evolved her enough to accept the parasitic organism 
    Nemesis.
    
    The 'G-virus' project was trying to push this abnormality to the ultimate 
    limit.
    
    But, the end result of this project could be either the evolution of the 
    ultimate organism or total destruction.
    
    Can we call this a weapon?
    
    What made Spencer approve this project?
    
    Even though I had been in the Information Bureau for four years by this 
    time, I could still not understand his motives. And now, Spencer does not 
    even come to Arclay.
    
    It is as if he had foreseen something was about to happen there.
    
    The image of Spencer was fading away from me like a mirage in the desert.
    
    But, an opportunity must present itself sometime.
    
    If I can survive until then.
    
    The lift was carrying both Birkin and me to the highest security level, 
    to the place where we saw her for the first time. The new chief researcher 
    John, Birkin's successor, was waiting for us there.
    
    He was transferred from the Chicago Laboratory and was said to be an 
    excellent scientist, but he seemed to be too normal to work for this 
    laboratory. He had doubts about the cruelty of the research and reported 
    to his superior to correct the situation.
    
    That caused a big enough stir even in the Information Bureau.
    
    If was everyone's opinion that if any information was leaked, it had to 
    come from him.
    
    We ignored John and started to give her the final treatment.
    
    To kill her.
    
    She has regained a little intelligence after taking in the Nemesis. But, 
    it resulted in nothing more than making her behave strangely.
    
    The odd behavior continued to escalate. Nowadays, she peels off other 
    women's faces and wears them over her own. The records show that she behaved 
    in the same manner when she was first given the 'Founder' virus. We were 
    never sure what made her react in such a way, but her termination was decided 
    after three researchers became her victims.
    
    Now the study of the 'G-virus' was on track she lost her status as a valuable 
    specimen.
    
    The termination of her vital signs was checked and confirmed repeatedly 
    for the next three days. Then, the body was taken away to some location 
    at the instruction of the Laboratory Manager.
    
    Even now, I still do not know who she was and why she was brought here.
    
    Of course it was exactly the same for other specimens.
    
    However, if she had not been there, the G-Project might never have existed 
    and if that was the case then Birkin and I would be in very different 
    situations.
    
    As I left Arclay Laboratory, I was thinking things over.
    
    Just how calculating is Spencer?
    
    (The 'Case' began three years after this report)
