MEMO FAQ TABLE OF CONTENTS * INTRODUCTION * MEMO's * CONTACTING AND HOSTING INFORMATION INTRODUCTION ############# Well, since there currently isnt a MEMO FAQ for resident evil 4 so far, i thought it would be nice if i was the first to submit one, for those who dont get it, MEMO is the same as files and notes that you find in the game, its all here. 7th FEB 2005, ------------ Added the two missing Memo's, and the file is complete now. Thanks to Justin Sparks <email@example.com> MEMO's ###### Here are all the files in the game listed in the order that you come across them, read them for some revelaing story events if you haven't finished the game yet. PLAYING MANUAL 1 ================ 1. Shooting = Hold down the R button then use the control stick to aim the laser sight. 2. Combat Knife = Press and hold the L button to ready your knife and press the A button to swing the weapon. 3. Action Button = You'll be able to perform various actions by pressing the appropriate button that appears on the screen. INFO ON ASHLEY ============== Name = Ashley Graham Age = 20 Daughter of the President of United States. She was kidnapped by an unidentified group while on her way home from her university. The kidnappers motive's are still unknown. Although there's reliable information that the perpetrator is an insider. Only a handful of people know about this kidnapping. Its been kept under the wraps mostly due to the fact that we cant determine who the traitor is. The guy's in intelligence say that they have reliable information that Ashley's been sighted somewhere in Europe. But until we find out who the insider is, I dont want to believe. It could be a ploy. We have very few leads as to the where abouts of Ashley. But members of the secret service and anyone related to Ashley are being questioned by an investigative team. Even active agents are being investigated for some information. Its just a matter before the kidnapper is exposed. PLAYING MANUAL 2 ================ 1. Reloading = Press the B button while holding down the firearm to reload your weapon. 2. Kicks = Approaching enemies that are either stunned or on their knees will allow Leon to perform kicks as prompted by the action button. 3. Changing Inventory Screens = Use the L R buttons to switch back and forth between the weapon/recovery and the keys/treasure screens. ALERT ORDER =========== Recently there has been information that a United States government agent is here investigating the village. Do not let this American agent get in contact with the prisoner. For those of you not yet informed, the prisoner is being held in an old house beyond the farm. We will transfer the prisoner to a more secure location in the valley when we are ready. The prisoner is to stay here until further notice. Meanwhile do not let the American agent near the prisoner. We do not know how the American government found out about our village. But we are investigating. I sense a third party other then the United States government involved here. My fellow men stay alert. - Chief, Bitores Mendez. ABOUT THE BLUE MADELLIONs ========================= 15 Blue Medallions. 7 in the farm.. 8 in the cemetery. For those of you who destroy more then 10 medallions, you will be awarded. (The rest is illegible). CHIEF's NOTE ============ As instructed by Lord Saddler, I have the agent in confinement, alive. Why keep him alive ?! I do not fully understand what the lord's inten- tions are. I would however think he'd keep them separate. Not confine them together as has been ordered. I do not believe Luis will trust a stranger but by chance they did cooperate the situation could get a bit more complicated. If for some reason, an unknwon third party is involved, i don't think they'd let a chance like this slip by. But maybe its all Lord Saddler's ploy. Leaving us vulnerable so this third party will surface, if they even exit that is... It is an unlikely possibilaty, but if a prowler is already amongst us then our plans could be ruined. I guess the lord thinks its worth the risk, if we're able to stop whatever conspiracy is at work. At any rate its the Lord's call, we will trust his judgement as always. CLOSURE OF THE CHURCH ===================== Reguarding the two fugitives, the apprehension of Luis is our top priority. The american agent a distant second. What Luis stole from us is far more important then the girl. Unless we get it back the girl will become useless to us. We must get it back to execute our plan to the end. If it gets in the wrong hands the world would become a totally different place then what Lord Saddler has envisioned. At all costs we mustn't let that happen. Never the less, we're not letting go of the girl, to ensure that the agent does not get to her. I have locked the church door where the girl is being held. Anyone who needs access to the church must first get approval from Lord Saddler. There is a key beyond the lake but it should be safe now that the Del Lago has been awakened by our lord. No one will get across the lake alive. Plus, our same blood courses through the agent's veins. It'll be just a matter of time before he joins us. Once he does, there will be nobody else left that will come looking for the girl. ANONYMOUS LETTER ================ There is an important item hidden in the falls, if you are able to get it you might be able to get Ashely out of the church. But i'll warn you, the route to the church isnt a walk in the park by any means. They've developed whats called an "El gigante" so god bless. About whats been going on in your body, if I could help you, I would. But unfortunately its beyond my power. PLAYING MANUAL 3 ================ 1. Commands = Leon can give commands to Ashley to either Wait or Follow by pressing the X button. 2. Ashley and action buttons = Depending on the situation Leon and Ashley can cooperate to get past various obstacles. 3. Ashley's health = You can use recovery items not only on Leon but on Ashley as well. 4. Ashley and game over = Leon has failed his mission if Ashley is either killed or carried away by enemies. SERA AND THE THIRD PARTY ======================== Where abouts of Sera are still unknown. Most likely he's using an old secret passage taught to him by his grand father who used to hunt in this region long ago. Im pretty certain that he's hiding our property somewhere in the forest. If his grand father was stil alive, i would have used him to find Sera. But HOW did he find out about the egg injected into his body? And the fact that he was able to remove it before it hatched is concering. Another factor taht concerns me is that Sera escaped with our property just before the American agent arrived. I don't believe that was just a coincidence. There has to be another player involved in this. In order to settle this whole situation, we have to capture Sera and wait for the effects of the drug to wear off before we inject him with another egg. Once this is done, whoever is behind all of this will surface. Nobody shall interfere with our plas. Those who do shall suffer seera consequences. TWO ROUTES ========== Just a while ago, I was informed by Lord Saddler that our men had shot down a United States military helicopter. There shouldn't be any more outside interference for a while now. Unless the United States government determines who the traitor is, they can only initiate very small covert operations. We must use this time to our advantage and recapture the girl. The two Americans can only get out of our terrotiry by using one of two routes. This is where we'll stop them. We shall make use of our forces to the greatest degree. We will deploy a large number of Ganados in one of the routes to ensure that they do not slip by us. for the other route we shall leave the task to El gigante. Which ever route they take, the agent will never leave here alive. Not with the girl atleast. VILLAGE's LAST DEFENCE ====================== I clearly underestimated the American agent's capabilaty. He's still alive. i thought that we could wait until the egg hatched, but at this rate he could destroy the entire village before it does. We must take care of this nuisance. We shall change our priorities, for the time being we will cease our hunt for Luis and ambush the two Americans. There is a building used to enlighten betrayers just beyond the point where you get off the lift. Its a perfect place for ambushing them. If all else fails, they still would need to face me in order o get past the last gate that leads out of the village. For only before my sight will the gate open. CAPTURE LUIS SERA ================= I have confirmation that Sera has entered the castle. Why would he return during his escape leaves me to question his motives. But we must seize this moment to capture him. We will get the other two Americans after we apprehent Sera. It appears he took some vaccines when he stole our "Sample". The vaccines we can do without but we must retriev the sample for it is our life blood. I feel there is somebody else or soem other group involved in this whole affair. if the sample were to get into the hands of that other entity, the world which we seek to create will not come. We must apprehent Sera as quickly as possible. LUIS's MEMO =========== There are some parasites that have the ability to control their hosts. It's basic knowledge among biologists but not much is known as to how the parasites do it. Studying these parasites specifically might reveal some clues to as to how the powers of the Las Plagas work. And perhaps provide more insight on the victimes of the Las Plagas, the Los Ganados. Here is a list of some of the parasites that have the ability to manipulate the behavioral patterns of their host. Dicrocoelium = Once the larvae of this parasite migrates to the ant's esophagus, it alters the behavior of the ant. When the temperature drops in the evening, the infected any climbs to the top of a plant and clamps onto a leaf using its mandible. It stays there immobile until the next morning, placing the ant where it's most vulnerable to be eaten by a browsing herbivore such as sheep. One could conclude that the parasite is manipulating the host's behavior to its way into the body of its definitive host. Galactosomum = The larvae of this parasite makes its home inside the brain of a fish such as the yellowtail and the parrot bass. Once infected, the fish make their way up to the water's surface where they'll swim until eaten by seabirds. Once again, the peculiar behavior can only be explained by the parasite's desire to get into the bodies of the seabirds. Leucochlordium = This parasite's sporcysts develop in the snail's tentacles. The sporocysts are vivid in color and pulsate continually somewhat like a worm. Surprisingly the infected snail makes its way to the top of a plant where it is most visible to the eyes of birds, therefore more likely to be eaten. Once eaten by a bird, the parasite will complete its metamorphosis into an adult. CASTELLAN MEMO ============== For many years the Salazar family has served as the castellans of this castle. However, not everything is bright, for my ancestry has a dark past. Long ago there once was a religious group that had deep roots in this region called the Los Illuminados. Unjustly however, the first castellan of the castle took away their rights and powers. As a follower of this religion and as the 8th Castellan, I felt that it was my duty as well as my responsibility to atone for that sin. I knew the best way to atone for that sin was to give power back to those who we once took it away from, the Los Illunimados. As expected it took a little time, but we were able to rejuvenate the once sealed Las Plagas. With this success I was one step closer to the revival of the Los Illuminados. The reason why I released the Las Plagas from deep under the castle and gave them to Lord Saddler was not only to repay for the sins of my ancestors but I felt certain that the Lord would make better use of this power to help save the world. To save those that have sinned with the power of the Las Plagas and to cleanse the their souls creating a world without sinners. The way it was meant to be. Once cleansed, they would become one of the many Ganados where they will find their reason to live. And after the Lord has succeeded in creating the world in which he has envisioned, then the sins of my Salazar family will be atoned for. FEMALE INTRUDER =============== There seems to be a female intruder among us. We believe she's connected with Sera. We also believe that she was the one who removed the egg injected into Sera before it hatched. She may have had him retirve the "sample" before the American agent's arrival. It's obvious that her objective is the "sample". We must get to her before she is able to reestablish contact with Sera. There's also reason to believe that she's working for somebody. We need her alive for interrogation. The female should be able to answer all our questions. After we have captured her, Sera will no longer be of any concern. As long as we retrieve the "sample", you may dispose of him as you see fit. BUTLER's MEMO ============= Knowing that Sr. Ramon Salazar has no family, Lord Saddler must have used his strong faith in the Los Illuminados to his advantage to talk Sr. Salazar into undoing the seal of the Las Plagas once done by his ancestor. Sr. Salazar would never do such a thing unless he was in some way being used unknowingly. I should have sensed the Lord's dirty scheme sooner. I feel I'm partly responsible for all of this. I have no idea as to what the Lord is planning but Sr. Salazar was just being used. It is too late now however, Sr. Salazar has already taken the Plaga into his body. There is no turning back once the Plaga has turned into an adult in the body. The Plaga parasite will not die unless the host dies. There's no cure. Perhaps, Sr. Salazar may have been vaguely aware of the Lord's plan all along. But it's so hard to tell. Nevertheless, there's nothing I can do about it now. I have served the Salazar family for generations. I am prepared to continue my services until the very end. SAMPLE RETRIEVED ================ As you may have heard, Luis Sera has been disposed of by Lord Saddler. The "sample" is back where it belongs. I had hoped that the whole matter could be resolved without troubling the Lord. However, as long as the "sample" is safe we can all rejoice, for our time is nearly at hand. Now that the "sample" is back in our safe hands, it'll be a bit more difficult for that troublesome woman to get it. In light of all this, it's unfortunate that Sera had to go. Like us, he would have had a bright future if only he had shown more fiath in our beliefs. As for the other two Americans, the Lord has left the matter in our hands. We must not disappoint the Lord. We shall capture Ashley and take her to the Lord and dispose of the American agent. RITUAL PREPRATIONS ================== Thanks to the efforts of the "Novistadors," we have been able to recapture Ashley. We shall prepare for the sacred ritual as quickly as possible and make Ashley an official member of the Los Illuminados. While we prepare for the ritual, those of you who feel inclined can attend to our American friend. We should be able to hold off our friend for at least a little while by jamming the gears in the clock tower with something. I think if we jam the gears in 3 places, it should give us enough time to prepare everything for the ritual. Now go and entertain o ur American tourist. LUIS's MEMO 2 ============= The first castellan buried the Las Plagas deep underground below the castle to hide their very existence. But when Salazar released the Las Plagas, no one thought he could bring them back to life. Because when Salazar found them they were all just fossilized remains. Everyone knew that the parasitic organisms could not survive without their hosts. That they couldn't sustain life on their own. But when Salazar and his men excavated the remains, it almost appeared as if the Las Plagas were just waiting to be discovered so that they could resurrect. Several years later, unexplainable convulsions started occurring among the villagers who helped with the excavation of the Las Plagas. Then one day, all of a sudden, these villagers turned into violent savages. They later found out it was caused by the Las Plagas. Although they appeared fossilized, they were able to survive the long years by lying in a dormant state at the cellular level remaining in a spore-like form.Apparently during the excavation, the villagers inhaled the spores and within their bodies the parasites became active again. This is how the Las Plagas were resurrected. Even as I;m writing, the excavation of the Las Plagas continues. God only knows how many of these Plagas have been resurrected. Not to mention the countless number of Ganados that have been created. Their inhumane activity must be put to an end. If they are not stopped, people around the world could turn into victims of this crazy cult organization. LETTER FROM ADA =============== Once a Plaga egg hatches, it's nearly impossible to remove it from the body. But if it's before it hatches, then it can be nautralized by medication. If it does hatch you might be able to get it out by surgery before it turns to an adult. But it won't be easy. There's a high chance you won't survive the operation. As far as I know the girl was injected with the egg before you. Her time is ticking. You should prepare yourself for the worst case scenario. LUIS's MEMO 3 ============= The hideous creates such as the El Gigante and the Novistadors are merely by-products of the diabolical and inhumane experiments conducted on the specimens that were once human. But there'son type of creature that clearly distinguishes itself from the rest. These creatures are called Regenerators. Regeneratoes have a superior metabolism that allows them to regenerate their lost body parts at incredible speeds. I've never seen anything like it... It is this characteristic that makes them almost invincible to conventional weapons. But like any living creature, there's a way to kill it. Apparently there are Plagas that live in its body somewhat like leeches. To stop its regeneration process, these leech-like Plagas must be located and then destroyed. But they can't be seen with the naked eye. They can only be located through thermal imaging. As far as I know, most of the Regererators most a number of these leech like Plagas. The kill the Regenerators, each one of these leech like Plagas must be killed. OUR PLAN ======== Because of that agent we lost Chief Mendez and Ramon. Never the less, everything will proceed according to plan. I must admit however, the loss of my loyal men is a bit disheartening. But I will deal with it. Replacing that loss will not come easy. I must choose wisely; for the Plaga reflects the conscience of their hosts. If chosen poorly, they could betray me. I need men who will swear their allegiance to me. I've learned my lesson when Sera betrayed me. I will not make the same mistake again. In this important hour, I cannot and will not have anyone stand in my way. LUIS's MEMO 4 ============= I'll report my findings about the Plagas here. The Plagas have 3 distinct characteristics. 1. As mentioned previously, the Plagas have the ability to manipulate the behavioral patterns of their hosts. 2. The Plagas are social organisms. By this I mean that instead of living individually, they live in perfect social harmony. It is believed that they have a collective intelligence. This type of behavior can be seen among insects such as bees and ants. However this kind of social behavior is rarely seen among parasitic organisms. Perhaps it was a learned behavior by the Plagas. I'm finding out if this has any relationship with their first characteristic. 3. The Plagas have exceptional adaptation skills. They are able to live off many kinds of organisms by creating a symbiotic environment quickly. This ability, when combined with their social behaviors, allows them to interact intelligently between hosts regardless of the host organism. I am ashamed to admit that my pure fascination with the Plagas, in hindsight, has blinded me to the true research objectives of the Los Illuminados. Even with the knowledge that Saddler was going to abuse the results of these experiments, I could not pull myself away from my research. As a result, I am just as responsible for this whole mess as he is. I see now that I was wrong, but can I stop their evil plans alone...? KRAUSER's NOTES =============== It turns out that old man Saddler wasn't buying me from the start. Even though I succeeded in kidnapping Ashley, I sort of sensed this when Saddler didn't completely let me in the loop. Under the circumstances, I had no other alternative bu to call for her assistance. Perhaps she knew this was the way it was going to turn out all along... My guess is that her ultimate goal might be different from Wesker's and mine. This is just the perfect opoporunity to find out. And after I get rid of Leon and retrieve the sample, I'll put her in a bodybag along with Leon and send them both to Wesker. LUIS's MEMO 5 ============= From the initial stages of the research, we have been searching for a safe and practical removal of the Plaga. Ironically, it turns out that the real objective of this research was not to find a way to remove the Plagas from the infected persons but to find a way so that the Plaga could not be removed from the body easily. In the end, we were able to find out that the Plagas could be removed only by exposing them to a special radiation. The only drawback with this method is that is is a very painful procedure. Since the Plaga attaches itself to the nerves, there is a possibility that it may impair the consciousness of the host. Another fact that must be mentioned is that once the Plaga grows into an adult, the removal procedure could kill the host. But perhaps death isn't so bad when you think about the alternative. OUR MISSION =========== The real power of the United States lies in three areas. The Justice Department, the Administrative bodies, and the Military. In order to take control of these areas, we must influence the minds of the people who advise the President. After this is done, the rest of the departments will quickly fall under our sway. If by chance the United States were to figure out our plan, the damage caused should be minimal. We will still be able to conquer the country as planned using our backup plan. Once we control the country, we will use their international influence to our advantage. The rest of the world will fall swiftly. As already stated, if our first plan doesn't go as smoothly as expected, we'll proceed with out secondary plan. By sending in our "special" forces we will infiltrate the country from within. Fear and chaos will spread through the nation like a virus. It'll only be a matter of time before the country loses its stability. At that time, when they're most vulnerable, we will strike. Rejoice my brethren; the world shall soon be cleansed.
