Introduction
------------
The following is a copy of "files" and "items" in Resident Evil: Umbrella
Chronicles. These have been reproduced verbatim to the best of my ability. All
text included shall be considered under Copyright of Capcom. This file may be
published freely as long as it is unaltered. Any questions, concerns, or
comments may be forwarded to dmohid@iupui.edu

Scope
-----
This document is not intended to assist player's in obtaining any files or
items; GameFAQs has published a guide entitled, "File Guide," written by
animan12 for that purpose. This document was written to allow players and
Resident Evil fanatics a consolidated means of reading the lore from Resident
Evil: Umbrella Chronicles. For those player who are concerned about the game
clock, the timer does continue to run while one views files in the Archives
Section of the game.

Organization
------------
The files and past items will be separated. Files are given in order of the
four dates in the game, subdivided by mission. Files are formatted as they are
given in the game. In most case, a line separates page breaks. This is omitted
when a sentence on the previous page continues on the next page.

Items are given in order of the four dates in the game. They are not subdivided
by mission as they are few in number.

"Train Derailment 1"

   -Memo of the Founding of Umbrella
      (extracted from the Umbrella Archives)

      Introduction

      Umbrella was founded in 1968 by three
      partners - myself, my good friend
      Edward Ashford, and the preeminent
      virology expert Dr. James Marcus.

      We all shared a common goal from the
      outset. We believed that virus
      research would play an important role in
      improving people's health. One day, it
      would even help to build a society free
      from the ills of disease.

      The Umbrella logo is a symbol of our
      unwavering pledge - "Preserving the
      health of the people."

      Technology is the umbrella
      that will serve that purpose.

      Thanks to everyone's support, our
      company has grown and the Umbrella
      logo is recognized and trusted
      throughout the world. For 40 years,
      we have followed our principles and
      delivered safety and peace of mind
      to medical facilities and homes.

      I would like to thank our loyal
      shareholders, employees and
      customers for their invaluable
      contributions to our continuing
      success.

      Unfortunately, both Edward and
      James have passed on in the course
      of this last year.

      While I mourn their loss,
      I feel their shining example lives
      on in the work we do everyday.
      I know they would be proud if they
      could see Umbrella now.

      We at Umbrella will continue to do our
      best to spur new innovation and make
      the world a better place for everyone.

      Humanity's future is safe under our umbrella.

      We appreciate your continued support.

      Umbrella Corporation Founder
      Ozwell E. Spencer

   -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: 163lbs.
      Transfer Destination:
      Regarthon Base

      Convicted of first degree
      murder. Court-martialed and
      sentenced to death by the 0703rd
      military tribunal. Sentence to be
      carried out upon arrival.

      Samuel Regan,
      Commander,
      Dunell Marine Base

   -Rebecca Chambers Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team,
      Rebecca is an expert in the manufacture
      and preparation of pharmaceuticals and
      serves as the team's medic. She is
      highly talented and graduated college at
      the young age of 18. Although she looks
      delicate, she is a woman of action and
      calm in the face of danger.

      She lacks experience in actual combat,
      so she can appear childish at times and
      can sometimes hesitate when finding
      herself overwhelmed by an unknown
      situation.

   -Billy Coen Profile
      Originally a Second Lieutenant in the
      U.S.M.C., he was sentenced to death for
      first-degree murder for his role in the
      death of 23 people. Billy is perceptive
      and can expertly handle any weapon. His
      body, hardened by marine training, is a
      match for any monster in battle. He is a
      cynical man of few words, but possesses
      a keen sense of justice and a deep
      passion for his duty.

   -Ecliptic Express Notes
      A special express train bound for the
      Management Training Facility. It appears
      to be a typical train at first glance,
      but its purpose is to bring Umbrella
      employees to the facility to undergo
      special training. The rails are
      privately owned and stretch through
      Raccoon Forest to allow direct delivery
      of materials and human resources to
      various Umbrella facilities.

   -Raccoon Forest Notes
      A large forts on the northern outskirts of
      Raccoon City. Includes the Arklay Mountains.
      A rich habitat, home to a multitude of the
      area's woodland creatures. The abundance of
      life in the forest is one contributing
      factor to the rapid widespread dispersion
      and mutation of the virus resulting in
      a biohazard.

      The Arklay Research Facility and
      Management Training Facility both lie
      within the forest.

   -Stinger Notes
      The Stinger is a B.O.W. created by
      administering the T-virus to a scorpion.
      As a result of the virus, the creature
      rapidly grows to a massive size and its
      pincers become powerful enough to cut
      through steel. The increased thickness
      and strength of the exoskeleton enables
      it to absorb damage from firearms.

      However, the creature's slow movement
      prevents its effective usage as a B.O.W.
      in the field.

   -Leech Notes
      This bloodsucking leech is approximately
      20 centimeters in length. Bred by Dr.
      Marcus, this creature has evolved in
      ways previously unthinkable in an
      annelid. When multiple leeches are
      present, they have been observed to form
      a collective consciousness.

      They consume flesh by attaching their
      enlarged mouths to prey and possess the
      ability to entirely consume a human in a
      matter of minutes.

"Train Derailment 2" [A2]

   -Memo about Billy's Past
      Tragedy rocks the U.S. Marine Corps!

      A dark day in Africa.

      Rumors surround Dunell Marine Base,
      situated in the American Heartland.

      These rumors were sparked by the
      U.N. condemnation of the Guerilla
      Cleanup Operation in Africa.

      The NPO has disclosed that the
      execution of 23 alleged soldiers was
      actually the slaughter of 23 innocent
      local inhabitants.

      The military has retracted their
      initial statements about the operation
      and the world is in an uproar over
      their involvement in the affair.

      An investigative committee has been
      quickly assembled to look into the
      incident, and the results of the inquiry
      are disturbing.

      They have announced that the truth
      of the matter is that "one marine
      panicked under the extreme conditions
      and unintentionally killed the
      civilians."

      This marine is said to be currently
      being held under close medical
      supervision and will receive just
      punishment in full accordance with
      the law. Details on the individual
      remain undisclosed at this time.

      The military's reluctance to disclose
      information has only fueled media claims
      of a cover-up.

      Should the top brass be
      allowed to shirk responsibility for a
      soldier in their command massacring 23
      innocent people? Does this cold-blooded
      killing machine of a marine even exist?
      This would not be the first time the
      military kept information on an
      operation quiet, but the emergence of a
      single soldier to blame seems all too
      convenient and reeks of conspiracy.

      If they do not disclose the full truth
      behind the incident, there is no
      foundation for regaining the trust of
      the citizens they are supposed to
      protect.

      The military will not be able to escape
      the suspicions of the people, nor of
      the family of the soldier implicated
      in this sad affair.

      Dunell Marine Base continues to deny
      media access to the facility, while
      soldiers continue their drills as if
      nothing has happened. Where is the
      justice? Is this what our America
      has become?

      We all want to believe that our brave,
      shining knights in the US military have
      our best interests at heart, so we can
      only hope and wait for an appropriate
      response to the public's outrage.

      Jeff Hendricks,
      War's Power Magazine

   -James Marcus Profile
      First head of Umbrella's Management
      Training Facility. A founding member of
      Umbrella Corporation and one of the
      pioneers who discovered the Progenitor
      virus. He was so involved in his
      research that he began to use Umbrella
      employees as test subjects in his
      experiments. The number of sacrifices
      totaled nearly 20 people.

      Acting under special orders from
      Ozwell E. Spencer, Albert Wesker
      and William Birkin assassinated
      Dr. Marcus in 1988. However,
      10 years after his death, he was
      mysteriously revived. To exact his
      revenge, he began secret activities with
      the goal of not only destroying
      Umbrella, but the entire world.

   -Mimicry Marcus Notes
      This creature is actually composed of
      countless leeches that have merged
      together to imitate the late Dr. James
      Marcus. The leeches secrete an adhesive
      bodily fluid over their cuticle in order
      to mold together. This coating hardens
      as they fuse together.

      When in the presence of prey or a
      threat, the leeches will break their
      form and attack. They are a revolting,
      but powerful enemy.

   -Eliminator Notes
      The Eliminator is a biological weapon
      created from a large monkey by Dr. James
      Marcus. Being based on primates, the
      creature is highly intelligent and
      capable of executing commands. In
      response to the virus, the Eliminator's
      muscle tissue strengthens and swells to
      such an extent as to tear through its
      skin.

      When detecting prey, hunger drives
      it to jump and viciously attack with
      incredible speed.

   -Bat Notes
      A bat secondarily infected with the
      T-virus, giving it heightened
      aggressiveness. It has a tendency to
      lunge at humans when it detects them.
      Its physical features are not much
      different from other bats that live in
      Raccoon Forest, but its hostile behavior
      increases the chance of spreading the
      T-virus.

   -Infected Bat Notes
      The Infected Bat is a creature that
      shows distinct mutations over other bat
      subjects. It is a prime example of the
      T-virus increasing the size of a highly
      compatible mammal. Its extraordinarily
      developed physique can reach a wingspan
      of up to 3 meters, and its strengthened
      muscle tissue enables it to carry a
      human being with ease.

      Its diet has been altered and now
      consists primarily of meat. In order to
      capture its prey, it signals accomplices
      to its air with sonic waves.

"Train Derailment 3" [A3]

   -Queen Leech Notes
      This creature has mutated to become the
      Queen Leech that controls all leeches.
      It typically takes the form of Dr. James
      Marcus, but can break this mold to
      become a transfigured, first form. The
      Queen Leech first entered the remains of
      Dr. Marcus many years ago and merged
      with his DNA.

      Over a long incubation period the Queen
      Leech eventually began thinking and
      acting just like Dr. Marcus did when he
      was alive. As the name Queen Leech
      implies, it commands countless mutated
      leeches. If it senses bodily harm, it
      will cease restraining its natural
      functions and will mutate into a larger,
      second form.

   -Resident Evil 0 Digest 1
      Bizarre murder cases with people being
      found dead, their bodies half-eaten,
      were being reported in the areas near
      Raccoon City.

      The city's elite special forces unit
      S.T.A.R.S. sent their Bravo Team to the
      scene. However, due to a mysterious
      engine failure, Bravo Team's helicopter
      crash-landed in the forest.

      Bravo Team narrowly escaped with their
      lives and stumbled onto a heavily
      damaged prison convoy and the brutally
      dismembered corpses of the Marines in
      charge. Enrico Marini, Bravo Team's
      commander, ordered that a search be made
      for Billy Coen, a former Marine who
      escaped from the convoy.

      The newest member of Bravo team,
      Rebecca Chambers, discovered a train
      stopped in the woods and went inside
      to investigate. Apparently the train had
      met with some kind of accident as she
      found all of the passengers dead.

      One of the supposedly dead passengers
      came to life and attacked Rebecca.

      Completely surrounded and facing
      certain death, the prisoner Billy Coen
      was responsible for her rescue.
      Rebecca was still suspicious of Billy,
      but realized that they needed to work
      together if they wanted to survive the
      nightmare.

      Shortly after, the train suddenly
      started to move. It accelerated and
      was rapidly approaching dangerous
      speeds.

      To prevent the imminent derailment,
      the pair engaged the brake. However,
      it was too late and the train rolled on
      its side.

      The two barely managed to escape the wreck.

      Waiting near them was Umbrella's
      Management Training Facility.

   -Resident Evil 0 Digest 2
      The Management Training Facility had
      been closed down since the death of
      Dr. James Marcus. Parasitic leeches
      taking the form of humans were
      attacking any trespassers that
      entered the abandoned facility.
      It was true terror come to life.

      The two Umbrella officers, Albert
      Wesker and William Birkin, were aware of
      the unfolding events. They were sent to
      recover the facility, but that plan fell
      apart with the endless waves of
      attacking monsters.

      While monitoring Billy and Rebecca's
      progress, they began to sense a
      presence bent on Umbrella's
      destruction and decided to destroy the
      facility. Rebecca and Billy came to
      trust and rely on each other while
      struggling through the nightmarish
      circumstances. Rebecca realized that
      Billy did not have it in him to have
      murdered the 23 innocent people.

      The pair eventually met with a
      reanimated Marcus. He told them
      the startling story of how he was
      assassinated 10 years ago.

      He had just successfully replicated the
      T-virus after years of researching
      leeches when two of Ozwell E. Spencer's
      employees, Albert Wesker and William
      Birkin, assassinated him and stole his
      research.

      The evolved leeches attached
      themselves to Marcus's corpse,
      absorbing his DNA into their own
      until eventually creating a copy of him.

      This new Marcus sought revenge on
      Umbrella and the world by initiating the
      outbreak of the T-virus to the
      surrounding Raccoon Forest, resulting
      in a full-scale biohazard.

      The copied Marcus eventually
      transformed into the Queen Leech
      while the timer began to run down on
      a bomb that was set to level the
      facility.

      Rebecca and Billy knew what had to be
      done as the curtain on their last battle
      rose.

"Beginnings 1" [B1]

   -Leech Growth Records
      February 3rd, 1978
      I administered Progenitor to 4
      leeches.

      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. Although they
      appeared to writhe around in pain at
      first, they soon settled down.
      Afterward, no major changes were
      observed.

      February 10th, 1978
      It has been 7 days since the
      administration of Progenitor.
      There has been rapid growth to
      double their former size and signs of
      transformation are emerging. Spawning
      has also been successful.

      They doubled their numbers in only
      an hour, but their ravenous appetites
      led them to cannibalism.
      I hastened to increase the food
      supply, but had already lost 2 of them.

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

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

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

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

   -William Birkin Profile
      A world-renowned scientist working for
      Umbrella. He is the primary figure
      responsible for the development of the
      G-virus. He was also a core component in
      continuing the research on the T-virus
      where Marcus left off. However, some
      unpleasantness arose between him and
      Umbrella, prompting him to approach the
      U.S. military. Umbrella responded by
      sending in their special forces.

      Shortly before his death at their
      hands, he injected himself with the
      G-virus and transformed into a monster.
      He is survived by a daughter, Sherry,
      from his late wife Annette.

   -Reclamation Project Notes
      The Management Training Facility has
      been abandoned since James Marcus's
      death in 1988. Umbrella undertook a
      project to reclaim the facility and
      bring it back under operation. Supplies
      and human resources were to be divided
      into two batches and sent in, but the
      lead group was exterminated by a B.O.W.

      The special forces unit sent in to
      investigate were also caught by surprise
      and taken down by the leeches. The
      leaders of the Reclamation Project were
      Albert Wesker and William Birkin.

      Management Training Facility

   -Marcus's Diary 1
      December 4th
      We finally did it... the new virus! We
      call it Progenitor. I will begin
      detailed investigations into this
      virus immediately.

      March 29rd
      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 whatever he
      likes...

      August 19th
      Spencer keeps hassling me to become the
      director of his new training facility.
      Maybe it's due to the business, but he's
      becoming intolerably pushy. Perhaps I
      can turn this to my advantage. I need a
      special facility to properly explore all
      of the secrets of this virus. 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.

      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. I call this
      new virus T, and it marks the first
      successful derivation of the Progenitor
      line.

      October 23rd
      It's no good! I can't hope for progress
      by experimenting on mere rodents. Only
      humans can be a proper mammalian subject
      for these experiments. 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
      As last, they are ready. My wonderful
      leeches! Those of low intelligence will
      never have the privilege of tasting this
      sense of joy and satisfaction! Now,
      finally, I can move against Spencer.
      Soon, I will control everything...

      January 31st
      The devices I set to protect my workhave
      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's 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... Those two
      are the only ones I trust. Apart from my
      beloved leeches, of course. But Spencer...
      It wouldn't end there, would it?

   -Zombie Notes
      They were once human, but were infected
      with and consequently resurrected by the
      T-virus. They lose their ability to
      reason, which combined with the
      continued decay of their flesh has led
      to their being called zombies. They
      began to appear in great numbers with
      the T-virus outbreak.

      Their insatiable hunger drives these
      carriers to seek out living organisms
      for food, which only further serves to
      drive the infection.

   -Keeper's Diary
      May 9, 1998
      Played poker tonight with Scott and
      Alias from Security, and Steve from
      Research. Steve was the big winner,
      but I think he was cheating. That
      scumbag.

      May 10, 1998
      One of the higher-ups assigned me
      to take care of a new creature.

      It looks like a skinned gorilla to me,
      I was instructed to feed it live
      animals.

      When I threw in a pig, the creature
      seemed to play with it... tearing off
      the pig's legs and pulling out the guts
      before it actually started eating.

      May 11, 1998
      At around 5 A.M., Scott woke me up.
      Scared the shit out me, too. He was
      wearing a protective suit. He handed
      me another one and told me to put
      it on. Said there'd been an accident
      in the basement lab. I just knew
      something like this would happen.
      Those bastards in Research never
      sleep, not even on holidays, so it
      was only a matter of time before one of
      them slipped up.

      May 12, 1998
      I've been wearing this damn space suit
      since yesterday. My skin's getting grimy
      and feels itchy all over. The goddamn
      dogs have been looking at me funny,
      so I decided not to feed them today.
      Screw 'em.

      May 13, 1998
      Went to the Infirmary because my back
      is all swollen and feels itchy. They put
      a big bandage on it and told me I didn't
      need to wear the suit anymore.
      All I wanna do is sleep.

      May 14, 1998
      Found a big blister on my foot
      this morning. I ended up dragging
      my foot all the way to the dogs' pen.
      They were quiet all day, which is weird.
      Then I realized some of them had
      escaped. Maybe this is their way of
      getting back at me for not feeding them
      the last three days. If anybody finds
      out, I'll have my head handed to me.

      May 16, 1998
      A rumor is going around that a
      researcher who tried to escape the
      estate last night was shot. My entire
      body feels hot and itchy and I'm
      sweating all the time now. I scratched
      the swelling on my arm and a piece of
      rotten flesh just dropped off. What the
      hell's happening to me?

      May 19, 1998
      Fever gone but itchy. Today hungry and
      eat doggie food.

      May 21, 1998
      Itchy itchy Scott came ugly face so
      killed him. Tasty.

      Itchy. Tasty.

   -Jill Valentine Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. She
      is very dexterous and is an expert at
      picking locks, earning her the somewhat
      awkward title of "Master of Unlocking."
      She is not only highly skilled in bomb
      disposal, but is excellent at breaking
      down any situation and determining the
      best course of action. Her years of U.S.
      Army Delta Force training have helped
      make her a crack shot.

      After the destruction of Raccoon City,
      both her and Chris have joined a private
      biohazard containment unit with the goal
      of taking Umbrella down once and for
      all. Serious, with a strong sense of
      justice, she's very direct in her
      actions. She typically only shows her
      tough side to others, but there are
      times when she lets her guard down and
      shows a softer side.

   -Chris Redfield Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team, his
      marksmanship is #1 amongst the
      sharp-shooters assembled in Alpha. He
      was once a pilot in the U.S.A.F. and has
      been rigorously trained in hand-to-hand
      as well as knife combat. He has pursued
      Umbrella and the people behind it even
      after the fall of Raccoon City by
      helping to organize a private biohazard
      containment unit.

      An excellent observer with keen insight,
      his sense of right and wrong is
      unwavering. This is often a source of
      conflict between Chris and his
      superiors. He has a younger sister,
      Claire, who he is very protective of.

   -Kenneth J. Sullivan Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team, he is
      a veteran who can be trusted to bring
      his vast experience and wisdom to his
      investigations. He is charged with recon
      and position security. He made it to the
      mansion, but was soon overtaken and
      became a meal for a zombie.

   -Forest Speyer Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team, his
      sharp-shooting skills almost rival
      Chris's. He escaped to the mansion, but
      was attacked by a monster and left for
      dead on the balcony, where his body was
      later discovered.

   -S.T.A.R.S. Notes
      Special Tactics and Rescue Service, or
      S.T.A.R.S., was established within the
      Raccoon Police Department and is divided
      into an Alpha Team and Bravo Team. This
      elite group was formed to respond to
      terrorism, organized crime, and
      emergencies too difficult for the
      regular police force to handle.

      Its members include a hand-picked group
      of specialists, the best of the best.
      Their funding was provided by a grant
      from private corporations, most notably
      Umbrella Corporation.

   -Arklay Research Facility "Mansion" Notes
      Umbrella's research facility built deep
      within Raccoon Forest. The primary
      facilities are buried deep underground,
      while the two story mansion that rests
      above ground serves as a facade. The
      mansion's construction includes a wide
      range of insidious traps and devices
      created by the architect George Trevor.

   -Cerberus Notes
      The Cerberus is a B.O.W. created by
      administering the T-virus to large
      Dobermans used in the military. Its skin
      is severely decayed, although its speed
      and endurance are considerably
      heightened. When it finds its prey, it
      will coordinate with others in its pack
      and attack in waves.

      They are suspected to be the main cause
      of the numerous mutilated bodies found
      in Raccoon Forest.

   -Crimson Head Notes
      A zombie that has undergone a sudden
      mutation, bringing with it a
      ferociousness surpassing that of a
      standard zombie. The mutation process
      requires that the zombie first be
      incapacitated.

      At this time, the creature's body tissue
      is reconstructed at the cellular level
      resulting in renewed activity as well as
      the tell-tale reddish color that gives
      the Crimson Head its name. It possesses
      long, sharp claws and relentlessly
      pursues victims with a speed unseen in
      other zombies.

"Mansion Incident 2" [C2]

   -Hunter Notes
      The Hunter was a battle B.O.W. born from
      a fertilized human egg infused with
      reptilian DNA with the assistance of the
      T-virus. It is extremely deadly in
      combat and possesses large, sharp claws.
      It is intelligent enough to carry out
      basic commands and can cut down prey
      with astonishing agility and jumping
      power making it truly deserving of the
      name Hunter.

   -Neptune Notes
      A new form of B.O.W. created from a
      Great White Shark base. It was developed
      as an experiment to prove that the
      T-virus would combine well with sea
      creatures.

      However, the introduction of the T-virus
      provided only minimal enhancement to the
      pre-existing strength of the shark and
      the result can hardly be employed as a
      true B.O.W. In the sea, it knows no
      enemies, but on land, it is powerless.

   -Wasp Notes
      These wasps were secondarily infected by
      ingesting insect carriers of the
      T-virus. They have grown to enormous
      size as a result. These wasps are
      societal insects that congregate in
      nests. Though it may be possible to
      fend off one or two, any unfortunate
      victim of their attack will likely fall
      prey to a large number of the creatures
      when they attack in swarms.

      Their stinger can deliver large doses of
      their natural venom mixed with the
      T-virus.

   -Adder Notes
      This small, venomous snake was
      secondarily infected by the T-virus,
      leading to a mutation with an enhanced
      ability to attack prey. It has the
      ability to multiply with incredible
      speed and its already potent venom has
      been further enhanced by the effects of
      the virus. The Adder's bite also carries
      with it the potential to further spread
      the T-virus.

   -Web Spinner Notes
      A new B.O.W. developed from early
      experiments with arthropods. Its name is
      derived from its roots as a spider, but
      the mutated creature now uses its acidic
      venom to capture prey and no longer
      relies on webs. With its spider ability
      to climb on walls and ceilings, it was
      under consideration as a useful weapon,
      but the inability to exert control over
      it ended that line of research.

   -Black Tiger Notes
      A disposed-of Web Spinner which mutated
      and grew even larger and more deadly. It
      can be differentiated from a Web Spinner
      by the black markings on its body. Its
      ability to create a web and nest has
      returned, providing it with an
      additional tool for trapping large prey.

   -Plant 42 Notes
      Plant 42 was created accidentally during
      the T-virus outbreak. Researchers who
      had discovered the plant, studied it
      with great interest as its growth
      overwhelmed that of other plants.

      Although it cannot move its trunk, it
      can lash out with tentacle-like
      appendages to ensnare prey and drain
      them of their blood for nutrients. It
      has also generated many other
      self-defense mechanisms to protect
      itself from would-be attackers.

"Mansion Incident 3" [C3]

   -Wesker Report Extract on the Tyrant Plan
      (extracted from Wesker's Report)

      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 transform
      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 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 that time, even with the
      utmost effort we only managed to
      collect a few specimens with a close
      match.

      Even from the outset, our research
      was at a standstill.

   -Researcher's Letter
      June 8th, 1998

      My dearest Ada,

      By the time you read this letter, I
      will no longer be the man you knew.
      The results of my test came back
      today, and as I suspected, they
      came back positive.

      I feel like I am teetering on the edge
      of sanity just thinking about my
      impending doom. I would give anything
      not to have to become one of them.

      As far as I know, you are not infected.
      I sincerely hope things do not reach
      such a desperate pass, but if it has
      turned out that you are the last person
      remaining alive, I want you to get the
      material from the Visual Data Room.
      Then, activate the Self-Destruct System
      in the Power Room, and escape from here.
      Please do everything in your power to
      make this whole incident public.

      If everything is still running normally,
      you should be able to release all the
      locks using the Security System. I have
      set up the terminal in the small
      security room so that you can log in
      to the system using my name and your
      name as the password.

      You will need another password to
      release the lock of the door in Basement
      Level Two where the Visual Data Room is
      located.

      As a safety measure I have coded that
      password into an X-ray picture - a
      roentgenogram. I know you, and I'm sure
      you will be able to work it out without
      any trouble.

      There is just one more thing... and it
      is my last request. I hope you never
      have to lay eyes on me in that state,
      but if you do happen to run into me in
      my hideous form, I beg you to put me
      out of my misery. I hope you understand.

      Thank you, Ada.

      Yours truly,
      John

   -Chimera Notes
      This grotesque B.O.W. was created by
      combining the genes of a human being
      with those of a fly. Although the
      general shape is humanoid, it has
      retained many fly characteristics such
      as the ability to crawl on walls and its
      sharp appendages.

      Its intelligence is on par with that of
      an insect, and its body contains within
      it numerous maggots. Its appearance
      provokes fear in humans that witness it.

   -Tyrant (T-002) Notes
      A product of the Arklay Research
      Facility, and the ultimate life-form,
      based on the male human body structure.
      Its combat prowess is at the pinnacle of
      B.O.W.s and it is named after the virus
      which created it. It possesses the
      mental faculties to carry out orders and
      is extremely durable.

      There were still issues about the
      control mechanisms, so combat data
      against real opponents was needed for
      making further improvements. If it
      senses that its life is in danger, it
      will remove its power limiter and
      transform into the even more powerful
      Super Tyrant.

   -B.O.W. Notes
      A Bio Organic Weapon, or B.O.W., is an
      organism mutated using the power of the
      T-virus developed by Umbrella. There are
      numerous varieties of B.O.W.s all
      developed to accomplish different aims
      from combat to viral contamination.
      Widely considered the most successful of
      the B.O.W.s is the humanoid Tyrant.

      B.O.W.s include all organic weapons
      intentionally designed by Umbrella, but
      do not include monsters created as a
      result of secondary infection by the
      T-virus.

   -Resident Evil Digest 1
      S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team was sent in to
      ascertain the cause of the grisly
      murders taking place in the Arklay
      Mountains, but all contact with them was
      cut off during the mission.

      Alpha Team was then sent in to
      investigate.

      While searching for their comrades,
      Alpha Team fell under attack by
      monsters and were forced to flee
      into an ominous mansion.

      The survivors, Chris, Jill, Barry, and
      Wesker resumed the search for Bravo
      Team, but found that most of them had
      already been killed by zombies.

      The mansion was filled with trap doors
      and strange devices and teemed with
      monstrous dogs, crows, spiders, and
      blood-sucking plants. The mysteries
      surrounding the old residence became
      more apparent as the team fought their
      way through its evil inhabitants.

      The mansion turned out to be a front
      for a hidden Umbrella research facility.
      Alpha Team managed to locate the
      survivors of Bravo Team - Rebecca,
      Richard and Enrico - But Richard
      perished shortly thereafter and Enrico
      was murdered while trying to warn of
      a traitor in their midst.

   -Resident Evil Digest 2
      Jill and Chris made their way below the
      mansion and discovered Umbrella's
      high-tech research facility.

      They discovered Wesker in the
      cultivation chamber and learned that
      he was the traitor. As a former Umbrella
      researcher, he had seized the
      opportunity that the biohazard presented
      to lure them into the mansion and
      collect data on the effectiveness of the
      biological weaponry against highly
      trained soldiers. Wesker also had
      further plans to betray Umbrella.

      With the awesome power of the
      completed Tyrant in his hands, he no
      longer needed to follow the orders of
      others.

      However, upon releasing the
      Tyrant, it lashed out and pierced
      Wesker's body with its giant claw.

      The Tyrant pursued Jill and Chris,
      while in the background a
      self-destruction mechanism had been
      initialized. The pair made contact with
      Brad, Alpha's helicopter pilot, and fled
      to the helipad to escape.

      The Tyrant followed in pursuit and
      began to draw closer with each step.

   -Brad Vickers Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. He is
      in charge of chemical protection and
      also serves as the team's helicopter
      pilot. He is prone to cowardice, a trait
      most notably demonstrated when he fled
      and left his team for dead at the
      mansion. His guilty conscious eventually
      forced him to return to try and save the
      remaining survivors.

      Despite his one moment of courage, he
      could never change his true nature. In
      the end he was tracked down and killed
      by the Nemesis.

   -Richard Aiken Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team. He is
      the BUM, or back-up man, for the team
      and specializes in the shotgun. He is
      also charged with looking after the
      inexperienced Rebecca Chambers. This
      young man has a bright disposition and
      is frank with others. He cares for
      people and will do whatever it takes,
      even at the cost of his own life, to
      protect someone.

   -Edward Dewey Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team. He is
      the RE, or rear-security, for the team
      and although he normally serves as the
      main pilot, he acted as co-pilot to
      Kevin Dooley for the Raccoon Forest
      mission. After the helicopter
      crash-landed, he discovered the Ecliptic
      Express and looked around inside only to
      be bitten by a zombie making him the
      first S.T.A.R.S. victim.

   -Crow Notes
      Wild crows infected by the T-virus.
      Although their appearance remains mostly
      unaltered by the infection, they have
      grown more violent and are no longer
      frightened off by loud sounds. The fact
      that they are capable of flight makes
      them an extremely dangerous carrier for
      the virus.

"Nightmare 2" [D2]

   -Enrico Marini Profile
      He is the leader of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo
      Team and second in command of S.T.A.R.S.
      Enrico is a veteran with survival skills
      and is highly regarded by his
      subordinates. Enrico's Bravo Team was on
      their way to investigate the bizarre
      murders in Raccoon Forest when their
      helicopter was forced to make an
      emergency landing. They proceeded to
      investigate on foot.

      Along the way, his team got split up and
      attacked by monsters in the forest.
      Enrico decided that Bravo Team's best
      chances of survival were with fleeing
      into the mansion, a secret Umbrella
      research facility. After escaping to the
      mansion, Enrico soon learned that there
      was a traitor within S.T.A.R.S.

   -Sealed Letter to Sergei Vladimir
      Dear Colonel,

      It has been so long since we last met.
      Has Summer come to Russia yet?

      I realize it is sudden, but I have
      a request that only you can handle, old
      friend.

      You already know from the television
      conference the other day that a
      response to the incident at Arklay has
      been ordered.

      The mail calling for the X Day
      Procedure has already been sent.
      There are stirrings behind closed doors
      calling for a "disposal" of the entire
      facility.

      However, I just cannot help but
      feel it is a waste, what with our
      guardian of Crete.

      I apologize for having to make this
      request of you, but could you fly
      to Raccoon and recover the
      prototype for me?

      There is cause for the urgency of
      this request. Hidden forces are at
      work, trying to back me into a corner.

      I suspect there is more to the virus
      outbreak and other various incidents
      than is suspected. The company has
      decided to destroy any evidence
      implicating their involvement.

      In the current circumstances, I fear
      that any correspondence sent by
      traditional means would be monitored,
      and so I sealed this message.

      Umbrella is embroiled in a dangerous
      situation and these are dangerous
      times. This is when those who would
      take advantage of such misfortune
      will begin to emerge.

      You have always been our loyal cleaner,
      and the time when your services are
      needed have come again.
      Happy hunting.

      (unsigned, but stamped by an old seal)

   -Yawn Notes
      This poisonous snake, bred for use as a
      B.O.W. test subject, escaped and was
      subsequently infected with the T-virus,
      causing it to grow to a gigantic size.
      It quickly made the mansion its home and
      ate many of the research staff. The
      venom it secretes through its sharp
      fangs requires a powerful serum to
      counteract.

      If the victim is not given prompt
      treatment, the venom will kill the
      victim in a matter of minutes. As it
      appears to be yawning as it swallows its
      prey whole, it was given the name Yawn.

"Rebirth 1" [E1]

   -Virus Memo
      We go way back so I hope you forgive me
      cutting the formalities. I don't have
      much time. I must describe how to use
      the item in question.

      The sample you have been given is
      from one of the mutation stocks.
      It possesses a unique characteristic.

      It should be injected into the host at
      least 5 minutes before needed. The
      results are almost immediate, but they
      do require a few minutes to completely
      take effect.

      Even in death, as long as some portion
      of the host remains, the virus can
      reconstruct the rest of its body and
      bring it back to life.

      During this process, there is a brief
      period where the host appears, for all
      intents and purposes, dead.

      In experiments with animals, 70% of the
      subjects grew more powerful as a result
      of this resurrection. Their muscular and
      circulatory systems for exceeded those
      they possessed in life.

      This virus has been designed to
      conquer death. 20% came back to life,
      but with none of the beneficial
      side-effects present in the primary
      group. The remaining 10% remained dead.

      In other words, there was a 90% revival
      rate. The virus has not been used on a
      human yet, but that is soon to change.

      I'm not sure how this will help, but I'm
      sure you will put it to good use!
      Good luck.

   -A Letter to Someone
      To my Lisa,
      Day by day I can feel my
      consciousness drifting further away.

      The shots given to me by the men in
      white clothes made some of Mommy's
      itching go away. Today they gave me
      another shot saying it was "nutrition."

      When they give me the shots Mommy can
      think straight, but Mommy's shocked and
      sad because Mommy is unable to think of
      you all the time.

      Mommy's afraid. Afraid of forgetting
      everything, especially the memories of
      you and Daddy... What your faces look
      like, how we used to be together...

      They're all starting to disappear into
      somewhere dark in my mind.

      Oh Lisa, I wish I could touch your face
      and hold you in my arms right now, so
      that I can hold on to the wonderful
      memories of you and Daddy.

      Lisa we can't stay here any longer. We
      have to escape!

      Listen to me Lisa. Out chance to escape
      is the next time when we go to that lab
      together. We'll both pretend that we are
      unconscious and when that man in white
      clothes is off guard that will be out
      chance.

      When we're on the outside, let's look
      for Daddy together. Okay sweetie?

      Be strong, Lisa.

      The family of George Trevor, the
      brilliant architect who designed and
      oversaw the construction of the Arklay
      mansion. The construction of the mansion
      took five years, and when it was
      complete, Spencer decided that George
      knew too much. He was imprisoned within
      the mansion, while his wife Jessica and
      daughter Lisa were subjected to viral
      experiments.

      Jessica was deemed incompatible and
      disposed of, while George found himself
      trapped in the product of his own
      design. The Trevor family became the
      first victims of Spencer's blind
      ambition.

   -Lisa Trevor Profile
      She was imprisoned for nearly 30 years
      in the mansion and subjected to
      continual experiments that transfigured
      her into a monster. Numerous viral
      experiments made her immune to death
      itself and soon led Birkin to the
      discovery of the G-virus.

      Lisa has the disturbing trait of peeling
      faces from her victims and placing them
      over her own. There were repeated
      attempts to dispose of her, but they all
      failed. She was eventually bound and
      left to wander the halls of the mansion.

"Raccoon's Destruction 1" [F1]

   -Jill's Diary
      August 7th
      Two weeks have passed since
      that day. My physical wounds have
      healed, but I just can't forget that
      nightmare. For most people, it's history
      now. But for me, whenever I close my
      eyes, it all comes flooding back.
      Zombies eating people and the screams of
      my teammates dying. No, the wounds in my
      heart have yet to heal...

      August 13th
      Chris has been causing a lot of trouble
      recently. What's with him? He seldom
      talks to the other police members and is
      constantly on edge. The other day, he
      punched Elran of the Juvenile Crime
      Department just for accidentally
      spilling coffee on him.

      I tried to approach him, but when he saw
      me he just gave me a wink and walked
      away. I wonder what's going on in that
      head of his...

      August 15th
      At midnight, Chris, who has
      been on leave of absence for a
      "vacation," called me and asked me to
      meet him at his apartment. When I got
      there he showed me a couple of pieces of
      paper. They were part of a virus
      research report entitled simply "G."

      According to Chris, "the nightmare
      continues." He later went on to say that
      "it's not over yet." It appears that
      ever since that day at the mansion he
      has been fighting to uncover the truth
      all by himself, without rest and without
      even telling me.

      August 24th
      Chris left town today for Europe. Barry
      said that he was going to send his
      family to Canada first and then meet up
      with Chris after that. I have decided to
      remain in Raccoon City for the time
      being because I know that the
      research facility here will be vital to
      this case.

      After gathering as much information
      as I can, I will regroup with Barry
      and Chris in about a month. I know
      that is when my true struggle
      will begin...

   -Carlos Oliveira Profile
      A young mercenary with Native American
      blood in his veins. He was active in
      anti-government guerilla operations in
      South America. After government forces
      wiped out his organization, he was
      scouted by Umbrella Corporation to join
      their U.B.C.S. special ops unit.

      He is an expert in heavy weaponry and
      vehicle operation, making him a valuable
      asset. He is warm-hearted and is known
      to joke around. Perhaps as a result of
      being raised amidst violence, he is
      brave and always willing to throw
      himself in the middle of danger.

   -U.B.C.S. Notes
      The Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure
      Service, or U.B.C.S., is a private
      military group operated by Umbrella.
      They exist primarily to control the
      disasters caused by Umbrella's products
      and are always first on the scene of any
      accident.

      Because of the dangerous nature of this
      work, many of the members are war
      criminals, refugees or others recruited
      with the promise of being pardoned from
      death sentences or life imprisonment.
      These soldiers often come from the
      armies of communist countries and
      possess a solid military background.

   -Raccoon City Notes
      An industrialized city located in the
      American Midwest. The city is surrounded
      by nature, with an expansive forest to
      the north and plentiful fresh water
      supplies. Raccoon City boasts a
      population of 100,000 people,
      classifying it as a mid-sized city.

      The city successfully attracted
      investment from the multinational
      corporation, Umbrella, and soon grew to
      become an industrialized company town
      with nearly a third of the population
      directly employed by Umbrella.

   -Reporter's Memo
      At last! I have found the evidence I
      need to prove that the "cannibal
      disease" is indeed present in this city.

      I've witnessed it with my own eyes! I
      saw one man actually eating another. He
      behaved like a savage beast, tearing
      flesh from bone. It was horrifying. I
      have heard rumors that numerous people
      now suffer from this disease.
      The cause, however, remains a mystery.
      I must look into this further...

      The government has placed Raccoon
      City under martial law to prevent the
      spread of the disease. Due to this, I
      have lost contact with the media
      outside of the city. But I'm not giving
      up yet. As a journalist, I have a duty
      to the people and to my profession.

      From what I have gathered, the disease
      has not spread nationwide yet. It is my
      belief that this city holds the key to
      the creation of the disease and its
      cure.

      The military has set up blockades
      around the city to keep people from
      escaping and spreading the disease. Most
      of the citizens of this once great city
      are now either dead or infected. I know
      that it is the right decision to
      quarantine the city, but I can't help
      but feel sorry for myself.

      Will I be infected or eaten? I suppose
      it doesn't matter. My fate has already
      been sealed. All I have left is my work.
      I won't give up until I solve the
      mystery of this deadly disease.
      I have already discovered that it is not
      an airborne strain but is spread by some
      other means.

   -Dario's Memo
      I can't help but wonder if anyone will
      ever actually read these words, but
      writing them down helps me keep the last
      shred of sanity I still have left.

      After I've become a meal for those
      undead monsters, I'm sure the G.I.s
      responsible for sealing off the town
      will have a good laugh if they discover
      this memo.

      Is this how it's supposed to end?
      I don't want to die. I'm not ready...

      My wife, daughter, mother...
      My entire family has been killed. But
      none of that matters anymore. Right now,
      I have to worry about myself. That's all
      I have left.

      I never would have imagined my end to
      be like this. I had so much left to do.
      Rather than becoming a salesman, I
      should have tried my hand at being an
      author. That's what I always wanted to
      do, but my mother was less than
      supportive of my dream.

      Why did I ever listen to her?

      This looks like the end for the great
      Dario Rosso, future best-selling author.

      Cut down before his prime...

"Raccoon's Destruction 2" [F2]

   -Grave Digger Notes
      An arthropod that has mutated to an
      enormous size as a side-effect from the
      T-virus. It burrows beneath the ground
      until it senses prey, at which point it
      will rush up to the surface to take it
      by surprise.

      The Grave Digger maintains the
      appearance of a worm and can grow to 10
      meters in length. Its powerful jaws can
      chew through even concrete, and its
      amazing digestive system allows it to
      swallow a human victim whole.

   -Licker Notes
      These creatures used to be zombies
      before the T-virus further ravaged their
      bodies. They were named "Lickers"
      because of the incredibly long tongues
      they possessed. Other changes involve
      the brain expanding to the point of
      becoming visible and their skin
      deteriorating and peeling to expose
      their deformed muscle structure.

      This last mutation makes it easiest for
      them to move around on all fours and
      allows them to climb on walls and
      ceilings. Physically, they far
      outperform zombies and they can hunt
      their prey by sound, lashing out to
      attack with their piercing tongues. They
      can also employ their sharp claws to
      leap and attack.

   -Ivy Notes
      Officially named Plant 43, this B.O.W.
      was developed by analyzing data from the
      Plant 42 that had appeared in the
      mansion. It inherits the blood-sucking
      capabilities of Plant 42, while
      demonstrating new traits such as the
      ability to move on its own and attacking
      prey with its two vine-like appendages.

      It also has the ability to spit
      digestive enzymes from its flower-like
      head section to deliver a fatal blow to
      prey. Its movements are plodding, most
      likely due to the slow hydraulic forces
      it employs for locomotion.

   -Large Roach Notes
      These were normal roaches that lived in
      the sewers until becoming infected with
      the T-virus and growing to 40cm, or 8
      times their normal size. Their natural
      hardiness has remained intact, helping
      their population to explode. They have a
      tendency to bite soft flesh on their
      prey, and on humans, this tends to be
      the area around the carotid artery.

      There have even been reports of attacks
      on humans where groups of the
      cockroaches have leapt to their victim's
      face, suffocating them with numbers.
      They fought with mutated rats for
      control of the sewers and won. Since
      then, they have demonstrated a tendency
      towards cannibalism.

   -Monitor Notes
      An internal espionage organization
      within Umbrella set up to monitor
      suspicious activity among its employees.
      They are usually placed throughout the
      organization and maintain the image of
      normal employees to help them conduct
      their activities. There were several
      placed among the U.B.C.S., one of whom
      was Nicholai Ginovaef.

      Their orders range from spying on
      fellow employees and destroying evidence
      to cleanup operations including
      assassinations as required. The rewards
      for successful operations for outweigh
      the risks and monitors feel no remorse
      for selling out or killing their
      supposed comrades. Rumors are that
      Colonel Sergei Vladimir is the one
      pulling the strings behind the group.

"Raccoon's Destruction 3" [F3]

   -Fax from the HQ
      Attention.
      The Raccoon City project has been
      abandoned. Out political maneuvering
      in the Senate to delay their plans has
      failed. All supervisors should evacuate
      immediately. The U.S. Army is going
      to execute their plan tomorrow
      morning. The city will be obliterated
      at daybreak.

   -Nemesis T-Type (Pursuer) Notes
      This B.O.W. is the result of combining a
      Nemesis parasite with a host Tyrant
      body. The introduced Nemesis parasite
      controls the host completely. Its
      improved intelligence gives it the
      capacity to follow orders as well as the
      ability to operate a variety of
      weaponry.

      A protective coat was wrapped
      around it to provide protection against
      bullets and explosions as well as to act
      as a fail-safe should it go out of
      control. Thanks to the parasite's
      secretions, the regenerative powers of
      the Nemesis T-Type were incredible.

      Even if it were somehow stopped by an
      attack, it could mutate and evolve into
      a new form capable of withstanding
      further attacks. The new forms and their
      abilities are completely unpredictable.

   -Resident Evil 3 Digest 1
      It was 1998 and signs of the coming Fall
      were in the air of Raccoon City. Jill
      remained in the city to investigate
      Umbrella but did not realize the
      situation had become so dire.

      Upon realizing the extent of the
      danger, she decided to escape. The
      virus had rapidly spread and much of
      the town's population had already
      turned into zombies.

      Umbrella sent in the U.B.C.S. under the
      guise of evacuating the survivors. One
      of them was the mercenary, Carlos
      Oliveira. Jill and Carlos began to work
      together to try and escape the hell on
      earth Raccoon City had become.

      A black-coated monster stood between
      them and their freedom. Nemesis, or the
      Pursuer, was intent on wiping out every
      last member of S.T.A.R.S.

      Nemesis had already made short work
      of Brad and continued to track Jill
      down to accomplish its mission
      objectives.

   -Resident Evil 3 Digest 2
      The tenacious Nemesis was cutting down
      one U.B.C.S. soldier after another. Of
      course, a betrayer was also responsible
      for many of the U.B.C.S. losses.

      This betrayer was Nicholai Ginovaef, a
      member of the internal espionage group
      within Umbrella with special orders. He
      was planning to take back field combat
      data from the city to Umbrella, while
      betraying members of the U.B.C.S. for
      money.

      That is when Carlos Oliveira delivered
      the startling news. In a matter of
      hours, a missile that had been
      launched would annihilate all traces
      of Raccoon City.

      There was not much time left and the
      Nemesis mutated to a more powerful
      form with each attack.

      Despite the desperation of the
      situation, Nicholai was only interested
      in the bounty placed on Jill's head.

      In the meantime, Jill and Carlos
      continued to look for a means of
      escaping the ill-fated town.

   -Barry Burton Profile
      A member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. He
      used to serve in the same military unit
      with Chris and employs his expert
      knowledge in firearms to adjust and
      supply the guns for the group. He is
      good-natured and compassionate, with a
      strong sense of duty. He deeply loves
      his wife Kathy and two daughters, Moira
      and Polly.

      After escaping from the mansion, he took
      his family to Canada and returned alone
      to Raccoon City to rescue his friends and
      former comrades from S.T.A.R.S.

   -Operation Report
      -Operation Report-
      September 27th
      1:00 P.M. The west barricade has been
      compromised and another exchange ensued.
      We sheltered the injured in the
      confiscation room on the first floor
      temporarily. Twelve more people were
      injured in the battle.

      Recorder: David Ford

      -Additional Report-
      Three additional people were killed
      following the sudden appearance of an
      unknown creature. This creature is
      identified by mission patches of skin
      and razor-like claws. However, its most
      distinguishing characteristic is its
      lance-like tongue, capable of impaling a
      person in an instant.

      Their numbers as well as their
      locations remain unknown. We have
      tentatively named this creature the
      "Licker" and are currently in the
      process of developing counter-measures
      to deal with this new threat.

   -R.P.D. Notes
      The Raccoon City Police Department led
      by Chief Brian Irons. Brian is deeply
      connected to Umbrella, who had been
      working with him behind the scenes.
      R.P.D. includes the special unit
      S.T.A.R.S. and is outfitted with far
      more technology than appropriate for
      such a small city thanks to generous
      donations from Umbrella. The police
      station itself was also filled with
      expensive art pieces and resembled a
      museum more than a station. The brave
      officers of the R.P.D. did what they
      could for the citizens of Raccoon City
      in the face of the spreading T-virus,
      but with their chief gone mad and giving
      them confusing orders, they could not
      pull it together and were eventually
      wiped out despite having some of the
      nation's finest.

   -Mail to the Chief
      To: Mr. Brian Irons,
      Chief of the Raccoon City Police Dept.

      We have lost the mansion due to the
      actions of the renegade operative,
      Albert Wesker.

      Fortunately, his interference will have
      no lasting repercussions upon out
      continued virus research.

      Our only present concern is the
      presence of the remaining S.T.A.R.S.
      members: Redfield, Valentine, Burton,
      Chambers, and Vickers.

      It is comes to light that the S.T.A.R.S.
      have any evidence as to the activities
      of our research, dispose of them in
      such a manner that would appear
      to be purely accidental.

      Continue to monitor their progress
      and make certain their knowledge
      does not go public

      Annette will continue to be your
      contact throughout this affair.

      William Birkin

      To: Mr. Brian Irons,
      Chief of the Raccoon City Police Dept.

      I have deposited the amount of
      US $10,000 into the account for your
      services this term as per our agreement.

      The development of the G-virus,
      scheduled to replace the T-virus, is
      near completion.

      Once completed, I am certain that
      I will be appointed to the executive
      board of Umbrella Corp.

      It is imperative that we proceed with
      extreme caution. Redfield and the
      remaining S.T.A.R.S. members are still
      attempting to uncover information
      on the project.
      Continue to monitor their activities
      and block all attempts to investigate
      the underground research facilities

      William Birkin

      To: Mr. Brian Irons,
      Chief of the Raccoon City Police Dept.

      We have a problem. I have received
      information informing me that Umbrella
      HQ has sent spies to recover my
      research on the G-virus. There are an
      unknown number of agents involved.

      They must not be allowed to take this
      project away from me as it represents my
      entire life's work. Search the city
      thoroughly for any suspicious persons.
      Detain any such individuals by whatever
      means deemed necessary and contact me
      immediately through Annette.

      With these precautions, any possible
      threat should be eliminated.

      I will not allow anyone to steal my
      work on the G-virus.

      Not even Umbrella...

      William Birkin

   -Brian Irons Profile
      The Chief of the Police for the R.P.D. He
      maintains the facade of being a
      warm-hearted police chief, but was
      accepting bribes from Umbrella to turn a
      blind eye to their many illegal
      activities in the city. When members of
      S.T.A.R.S. returned with reports of the
      mansion incident, he intentionally
      blocked all further attempts at
      investigating the matter.

      His dark side is not a recent
      phenomenon. A little known fact about
      his past is that he was twice accused of
      domestic violence against his wife
      during his college years, and he avoided
      incarceration by agreeing to undertake
      psychiatric evaluation. During the
      events in Raccoon City, his unstable
      nature began to rear its ugly head
      again.

      He locked down the police station to
      make sure all of his subordinates went
      down with him and even made a personal
      trophy of the mayor's dead daughter.

"Death's Door 1" [G1]

   -Ada Wong Profile
      A woman shrouded in mystery. She tells
      Leon that she has come to Raccoon City
      looking for her lover, but this is only
      cover. She is actually a spy who has
      come to retrieve a sample of the
      G-virus. She has undergone rigorous
      special training in firearms and
      acrobatics, making her a real pro. Ada
      is always calm and collected even in the
      most extreme circumstances.

      She is cold and mysterious, but can show
      a feminine side from time to time.
      Whether she truly cares about anyone
      else or is just using her charms to
      manipulate people is never clear. Who is
      the real Ada Wong? Nobody knows.

   -Resident Evil 2 Digest 1
      Two months after the mansion incident,
      Raccoon City has shown signs of
      changing.

      Leon S. Kennedy is R.P.D.'s newest
      police officer and has arrived in
      Raccoon City for his first day on the
      job.

      The town is swarming with zombies
      and shortly after reaching town, Leon
      has to save Claire Redfield from an
      attacking zombie.

      Claire is S.T.A.R.S. team member
      Chris Redfield's younger sister and
      has come looking for her brother.

      The two flee together to the safest
      location they can think of - the
      R.P.D. police station.

      The manage to reach the station,
      but find that the police force has
      already be devastated. The two
      decide to split up to try and look
      for survivors and an escape route.

      While exploring the expansive police
      station, Leon meets Ada Wong in the
      parking garage and they continue
      exploring together. Meanwhile, Claire
      finds and rescues a young girl. She
      tells Claire that her name is Sherry
      and that she got separated from her
      parents.

      Leon finds that there is a sewer
      line linking the police station with
      an Umbrella research facility. What
      he did not yet realize was that there
      would be a powerful monster standing in
      between him and his escape.

   -Resident Evil 2 Digest 2
      In the research facility, Claire ran
      into Annette, an Umbrella researcher and
      Sherry's mother.

      She gives Claire a full account of
      the causes leading to the outbreak
      in Raccoon City.

      The "G" monster that was in the
      sewers was really her husband,
      William, after he injected himself with
      an experimental virus called the
      G-virus.

      The outbreak of the T-virus sparked
      a battle for control of the new
      G-virus between William and Umbrella.

      Leon had made his way to a different
      part of the research facility and was
      attacked by a Tyrant.

      During the fight, he leapt into danger
      and saved Ada from certain death.
      They continued through the facility
      together and a bond began to form
      between them.

      Ada finally revealed the truth to
      Leon that she was actually a spy
      sent in to steal the G-virus.

      While Leon was with Ada, Claire
      was still with Annette, and "G"
      had appeared suddenly in front of the
      pair cutting Annette down.

      She entrusts the instructions on
      producing the G-virus vaccine to
      Claire shortly before dying.

      Sherry had become infected with
      the virus, and Claire hurried to produce
      the vaccine.

      Can Claire and Leon reunite and
      escape the disaster? What will
      become of the infected Sherry?

   -G Notes
      1) This virus is far more powerful than
      the T-virus and was developed by a
      researcher named William Birkin. The
      T-virus only causes one generation of
      mutations, but the G-virus can continue
      beyond one generation. When the Nemesis
      prototype was used on the test subject
      Lisa Trevor, her body served as the
      source of the original G-virus's
      discovery.

      2) William injected himself with the
      G-virus and transformed into this
      monster. This monster is also called
      "G", but to help distinguish its name
      from the virus, the monster is
      sometimes called Birkin G.

      This monster underwent extreme
      mutations until eventually reaching a
      fifth form when it was finally
      destroyed by Leon and Claire in the
      research facility under Raccoon City.

"Fourth Survivor 1" [H1]

   -HUNK Profile
      He has carried out a large number of
      successful operations, many of which he
      was the only one to return alive from,
      earning HUNK the nickname "Grim Reaper."
      He is a member of Umbrella Special
      Forces and was the operative that single
      handedly retrieved the G-virus despite
      the rest of his unit being wiped out by
      the G creature that used to be William
      Birkin.

      Cold, silent and devoid of emotion, he
      is a human machine. He has never shown
      his true nature, and even his true face
      is unknown.

   -Umbrella Special Forces
      The elite special forces unit owned and
      operated by Umbrella. They report
      directly to the highest ranking officers
      in Umbrella. Unlike the U.B.C.S. which
      performs more visible missions such as
      rescuing civilians, this unit maintains
      total secrecy and a small size.

      Delta Team was sent in to blow up the
      Ecliptic Express after the trouble
      occurred, but they were overwhelmed by
      the leeches and wiped out. One of the
      unit's more notable members, HUNK,
      belongs to the Alpha Team and carried
      out the impossible mission of retrieving
      the G-virus from the research facility
      under Raccoon City.

   -Chief's Diary
      September 23rd
      It's all over. Those imbeciles from
      Umbrella have finally done it...
      Despite all their promises, they've
      ruined my beautiful city. Soon the
      streets will be infested with zombies.
      I'm beginning to think that I may
      even be infected myself. If I am,
      I'll make sure I kill every last person
      in this town!

      September 24th
      I was successful in spreading confusion
      among the police as planned. I've made
      sure that no one from the outside will
      come to help.

      With the delays in police action, no
      one will have the chance to escape
      my city alive.

      I've seen to it personally that all
      escape routes from inside the
      precinct have been cut off as well.

      There are several survivors still
      attempting to escape through the lower
      levels, but I'll make sure no one gets
      out.

      September 26th
      I've had a change of plans about the
      remaining survivors inside the precinct.
      I've decided to hunt them down myself.

      I shot Ed in the back less than an hour
      ago. I watched him writhe in pain open
      the floor in a pool of his own blood.
      The expression on his face was
      positively exquisite.

      He died with his eyes wide open,
      staring up at me. It was beautiful.

      I wonder if the mayor's daughter is
      still alive? I let her escape so I could
      enjoy hunting her down later... I'm
      going to enjoy my new trophy.
      Frozen forever in the pose I choose
      to give her.

"Umbrella's End 1" [I1]

   -Umbrella Russian Branch Notes
      This branch of Umbrella is a research
      lab located in the Caucasus region,
      in the south of Russia. On the surface,
      it appears to be a government-operated
      chemical processing plant, but it has
      been taken over by Umbrella after the
      fall of the Soviet Union and maintained
      as a front.

      Umbrella built facilities beneath the
      surface to perform viral and B.O.W.
      research. It is Umbrella's newest base
      and serves as Sergei Vladimir's
      headquarters.

   -Umbrella Raccoon City Judgment
      After the Raccoon City incident, the
      U.S. government issued an order for
      Umbrella to cease and desist all
      operations. In response, Ozwell E.
      Spencer hired the best lawyers money
      could buy and prepared false witnesses
      to try and create the appearance of a
      conspiracy with which to turn the public
      opinion away from Umbrella and toward
      the government.

      Survivors of the incident presented
      their testimonies, but the lack of
      evidence, most of which had been wiped
      out in the eradication operation, and
      the withholding of testimony by
      government employees, who feared being
      implicated, made the case drag on
      without a conclusion.

   -Talos Project Proposal
      Next-Generation B.O.W. Proposal

              Arklay B.O.W. Research Team

      The success of the T-002 Tyrant
      experiment has shown us that progress
      towards a marketable humanoid B.O.W.
      is moving along nicely

      However, we must strive to continue
      the research and development of
      cutting-edge products to satisfy the
      varying needs of our clients.

      The plan our team proposes is as
      follows.

      1) Tuning Control Synapse Connector

      The current risk with deployment of
      T-virus based weaponry is the lack of
      control.

      Sudden cellular mutations can result
      in the halting of functionality,
      impairment of judgment, and the
      various other conditions reported
      in the past. In order to enable the
      safe transport and deployment of
      this weaponry, a more stable
      solution is essential.

      Our 6th Research Lab in Europe has
      discovered one method of control by
      using organic parasites.

      We would like to pursue a more
      consistent result by using chip
      connections to brain cells. We are in
      the final stages of testing and feel
      confident in the likelihood of product
      realization.

      2) Enhancement of Combat Functionality
      for Land-Based Weaponry

      The Tyrant boasts a combat prowess
      and survivability that far surpasses
      that of even the best-trained combat
      troops. However, it is still only
      theoretically capable of successfully
      deterring roughly one military division.

      When facing AFVs or military-grade
      helicopters, its kill ratio begins to
      falter.

      By arming the Tyrant with specialized
      combat firepower and armor, it will
      become more fit for the variety of
      situations it is likely to face in the
      field.

      In the past, the ideal has been to leave
      the Tyrant unhindered by additional
      equipment so that it can maximize its
      two strong points - motor performance
      and response reflexes.

      However, the use of enhanced armor
      modules, internal reinforcement
      implants, long distance homing weaponry,
      etc. could preserve the natural
      abilities of the Tyrant while maximizing
      its options in field maneuvers.

      The potential for this enhancement is
      fast becoming a reality. When complete,
      it could make the Tyrant the ultimate
      all-in-one combat package.

   -Eradication Operation Notes
      Even after the mansion incident had
      ended, the "cannibal disease" (T-virus)
      had spread to Raccoon City, plunging it
      into a state of panic. The city was
      quarantined, while R.P.D. officers and
      U.B.C.S. soldiers attempted to rescue
      its citizens. The situation grew more
      and more desperate and the possibility
      of the virus spreading beyond the
      quarantine was growing.

      The U.S. government was concerned and
      called a nationwide conference to
      discuss the next step. They formulated a
      plan for the complete eradication of the
      city. In compliance, on October 1st,
      1998, the military launched a strategic
      missile into the heart of the city.
      Raccoon City, with its 100,000
      inhabitants, was forever wiped from the
      face of the earth.

   -Richard Aiken's Letter
      Dear Bridgette,

      I understand your concerns about me
      taking up this dangerous line of work.
      As a member of S.T.A.R.S., I will always
      be in the line of fire. I figured this
      was as good a time as any to try and
      explain my actions.

      Bridgette, I know I've talked about her
      before, but the memory of my little
      sister eats at me from the inside.
      I couldn't save her from that criminal.

      I know you tried to console me,
      telling me that there was nothing I
      could do being so young. But I was so
      paralyzed by fear and doubt that I
      couldn't do anything.

      My baby sister was killed right in front
      of my very eyes and I couldn't move
      an inch. I couldn't protect her.
      I was so helpless. I feels like I
      should have died in her place and I
      just can't shake that feeling.

      All I can do is try to bury that feeling
      and protect the people that need it
      most, so they don't have to go
      through what I did. I'm not giving up
      this job, and I will continue to protect
      who I can.

      S.T.A.R.S. is the only way I can live
      with myself.

      I don't want to die in vain. I never
      want to hesitate when that moment
      comes again.

      Don't worry, I'm not that little kid
      anymore and I'll come back alive.

      I promise.

      You're the most important thing in my
      life, and I always want to be there for
      you when you need me.

      Love,
      Richard

   -Leon S. Kennedy Profile
      After graduating from the police
      academy, he asks to be assigned to the
      Raccoon City police who are in the
      middle of investigating the bizarre
      murders in the area. Upon arrival to the
      devastated city, he does what he can to
      rescue the survivors.

      Although he has little practical
      experience, he makes up for it with a
      strong survival instinct and natural
      abilities. Once escaping Raccoon City,
      he is scouted to become an agent for the
      U.S. government. He has a strong sense
      of justice and never hesitates to act.
      His youth can sometimes lead him astray
      when it comes to the fairer sex.

   -Emergency Orders
      Emergency Orders

      As of 12 A.M. today,
      September 29th, 1998, in provision
      with Article 12 of the Internal
      Emergency Procedures, all
      equipment and personnel are now
      under the command of the Captain
      of the Guard, Sergei Vladimir.

      His orders are to be strictly obeyed.
      Any attempts to disobey orders will be
      punishable by death.

      1) This vessel is to infiltrate Raccoon
      City and air drop T1 into the R.P.D.
      police station to take care of any
      possible survivors.

      2) The remaining Ts on board should be
      dropped in the P-12A Incinerator
      Facility. They will be able to respond
      to well-equipped and well-trained U.S.
      special forces in the area. We must make
      sure we take all necessary steps to
      clean them up.

      3) After completing the preceding
      steps, this vessel is to retreat from
      Raccoon City airspace as quickly as
      possible. After releasing all of the Ts,
      there will be another piece of cargo
      to be transported. Details will follow
      later.

"Umbrella's End 3" [I3]

   -T-A.L.O.S. Notes
      Codename T-A.L.O.S. The "T" stands for
      Tyrant and the rest of the codename
      stands for Armored Lethal Organic
      System. This bioweapon uses a Tyrant as
      a base, while adding remote computer
      control capabilities via a chip
      implanted in the brain.

      Its cardiovascular system is
      artificially improved to give it
      mobility unthinkable in a
      natural organism. Its body is
      armored in a special metallic
      allow that not only helps it
      defend itself from missiles and
      other projectile fire, but also
      restrains runaway T-virus
      mutation.

      It has also been equipped with weaponry
      to allow it to respond to distant
      targets. Although it is a humanoid
      B.O.W., it has enough armor and
      firepower to stand against a tank. The
      codename also represents the name of a
      bronze giant from Greek mythology.

   -Sergei Vladimir Profile
      An officer in Umbrella. During his army
      days, he held the rank of colonel and is
      still called that on occasion as a
      nickname. He approached Umbrella after
      the fall of the Soviet Union, looking
      for work. He is involved in Tyrant
      research and his experience in military
      affairs has made him instrumental in the
      founding of Umbrella's private militia,
      the U.B.C.S.

      He shows an ardor for following
      Spencer's orders and makes sure even the
      most radical of Spencer's wishes are
      carried out.

   -Red Queen Notes
      The code name for the AI defense system
      developed by Umbrella. The AI is
      contained within U.M.F.-013. However,
      the AI has unrestricted access to the
      entire Umbrella network for
      administration, monitoring and carrying
      out certain procedures.

      This additional functionality is a
      security fail-safe but, in most
      circumstances, Red Queen is in the
      background performing only its primary
      monitoring function. In emergencies, it
      will serve a more active role and
      protect sensitive systems and data from
      intrusion along with cleaning up
      hostiles.

      It is self-aware and can take
      these measures based on its own
      judgment.

   -Albert Wesker Profile
      One of the men behind the biohazard
      outbreak, and always seen with his
      signature shades on. Wesker possesses
      knowledge about biological engineering
      and used to be an agent for Umbrella. He
      was planted in S.T.A.R.S. to spy on them
      and was even made their commanding
      officer.

      Wesker took particular note of
      Chris and his combat prowess while in
      charge of the team. He is cold-blooded
      and has no qualms about betraying the
      people who place their faith in him. He
      betrayed and killed Marcus, lured
      S.T.A.R.S. into the mansion and nearly
      wiped them out, and even pretended to be
      dead to join Umbrella's rival company.

      Wesker was the one who sent Ada Wong to
      retrieve the G-virus and was involved in
      the incidents at Rockfort Island. He
      appears intent on gathering as much data
      as possible on viral weaponry. Since
      injecting himself with a virus during
      the events at the mansion, his power has
      grown far beyond that of a normal human
      being.

   -Ivan Notes
      A derivation of the T-103 Tyrant line
      the Sergei has re-engineered to act as
      his personal bodyguard. Its basic combat
      functionality is that of a T-103, but it
      has been modified to better assimilate
      into human society. In addition to the
      trademark T-103 defensive coat, this
      model is also equipped with sunglasses
      that include an HMD.

      Major improvements with this model
      include greater powers of comprehension
      and the ability to pass as human. It is
      still a T-103, and as such, can
      transform into a Super Tyrant when the
      situation calls for it.

   -U.M.F.-013 Notes
      The 13th generation supercomputer
      contained in the underground Raccoon
      City research facility shelter. All of
      the data gathered from the network of
      Umbrella's branches around the world is
      stored as a backup on this mainframe.

      This wealth of information is kept in
      one location to serve as a safety
      measure should Umbrella run into
      difficult and need to be
      re-established.

"Dark Legacy 1" [J1]

   -Wesker Report Extract on "Her"
      July 31, 1978
      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 way or why she
      was there.

      Apparently, she was a human specimen
      to develop the "T-virus" on.

      The experiment began on
      November 10th, 1967.

      She had been continuing to receive
      virus injections for 11 years.

      July 27, 1981
      He worked through the night at
      the lab time after time and repeated
      disorganized experiments, one after
      another.

      My staff and I collected biopsy samples
      as quickly as possible before the
      specimens could die, but we couldn't
      keep up with his speed.

      The Laboratory Manager supplied the
      new specimens as if nothing had
      happened, but they didn't survive long.

      It was hell.

      But the female specimen survived
      that hell.

      She was 28 years old by then an
      had spent 14 years in this lab.

      The numerous injections of the
      "Progenitor" virus she had received
      over the past 14 years would have left
      her bereft of any logical reasoning.

      It's just as well because if she still
      had any mind left, death would have
      been the one and only thing she
      would desire.

      Somehow, she continued to live.

      July 31st, 1995
      Her termination was decided after three
      researchers had become her victims.

      With the study of the "G-virus" on
      track, she no longer had her status as a
      valuable specimen.

      The termination of her vital signs was
      monitors and confirmed over the next
      three days. Then, the body was finally
      taken away to some unknown location
      at the instruction of the Laboratory
      Manager.

      Even now, I still do not know who she
      was and why she was brought here.

"Dark Legacy 2" [J2]

   -Letter from Sergei to Nicholai
      Nicholai, I apologize for the delay in
      responding

      Your offer definitely has the potential
      to turn quite a profit. However, the
      price I had to pay was high and had
      to be considered carefully.

      I have not changed my mind about
      relinquishing them. I understand that
      these ten soldiers I've found alongside
      with are nothing more than a number, a
      price tag, to Umbrella.

      I'm sure you are finding this all quite
      amusing, Silver Fox, but this is a sad
      day for me. I feared the day I would
      have to make this decision.

      After all, these men were all raised by
      me and are a part of me. I can't help
      but feel reservations about turning
      these thinking, feeling human beings
      into biological weapons and cursing
      them to an eternity of living death.

      However, I have made my decision
      and will not waver. Progress is always
      built on sacrifice. If we are to truly
      restore our Mother into the great
      country she once was, I am willing to
      endure any amount of suffering and a
      price in blood is still a small price to
      pay.

      If I have to cut down my very body,
      it is a sacrifice I am willing to make.
      I will wail and shed tears of blood
      and rend every last flesh of regret
      from my body if it means I can usher
      in a new age.

      My answer comrade is yes.
      Silver Fox, your wish shall be granted.

      Sergei Vladimir

   -Wesker's Notes on Differing Mutations
      I have a theory on Sergei's unique
      course of evolution.

      I had always assumed that the variety of
      effects the virus brings about on its
      host were mere random mutations.

      However, witnessing first-hand the
      effects on Sergei combined with what
      I know of Marcus's transformation
      points to a common threat between
      their outcomes.

      The host's mindset appears to influence
      the evolution of the virus.

      Sergei mutated into a monster whose
      very body is the picture of suffering
      as he was ripped apart from the
      inside by thorns. I can only imagine
      that his transformation represents
      the true mindset of the person he
      was inside.

      While I have no proof, my intuition
      tells me that his must be the case.
      If the personality of the host can truly
      affect the course of the virus
      manifestation, were does that leave me?

   -Sergei Monster Notes
      Sergei transformed into this monster
      after injecting himself with a virus.
      The tentacles binding his arms fuse into
      one large tentacle. At the end of this
      appendage is a dangerous claw that can
      be used for movement or attacking.

   -Online Interview with Anti-Umbrella Activist
      Reporter:
      The trial is the talk of the Internet
      and queries on popular search engines
      continue to make the top three list.
      However, there are many who raise
      their eyebrows at your battle against
      the multinational corporation as
      carrying things too far. What is your
      opinion on this?

      Sara:
      Umbrella is not just another
      out-for-profit corporation, they are a
      powerful organization closely resembling
      an army or a country. We have no choice
      but to wage war this way on a company
      trying to cover up the truth. We have
      battled in court for almost half a
      decade now to reach a verdict against
      Umbrella and we would do it again if
      given the choice.

      Reporter:
      So you're the David fighting the
      Goliath of Umbrella. However, no
      that a decision has been handed down,
      the problem's solved right?

      Sara: One problem was solved, but some
      doubt still remains and I feel it's too
      early to celebrate our victory.

      Reporter:
      Doubt? And what doubt would that be?

      Sara:
      There are two questions we need
      to ask ourselves. First, why is it that
      it has taken so long for evidence
      against Umbrella to appear? Why now?
      Second, why is the nature of that
      evidence still being concealed to this
      day?

      Reporter:
      There are a lot of popular theories
      flying around about that one.

      Sara:
      Take a look at the court records. It
      seems as if the evidence was data
      being stored on a computer. Umbrella
      must have been hiding it right to the
      very end.

      The most likely reason none of
      this evidence has gone public is
      that is contains information that
      would incriminate many world
      governments, including our own.
      This evidence is also rumored to have
      been acquired from dealings with an
      anti-social organization.

      Reporter:
      But Umbrella's gone. Certainly that
      means the biggest menace is out of
      the way right?

      Sara:
      Have the wrongdoings of Umbrella
      come to light? Certainly. But all of
      the data on virus production and
      biological weaponry has not.
      I don't feel the data has been erased,
      but that it has ended up in someone's
      hands, someone who will inherit
      Umbrella's dark legacy.

      Reporter:
      Inheriting a dark legacy? That sounds
      like something out of a TV show.

      Sara:
      It's easy to laugh and dismiss it as
      some movie of the week story.
      However, if there is any chance that
      such a possibility is true, it is worth
      our concern. Humans can be foolish
      creatures.

      Even after witnessing the
      destructive might that wiped out an
      entire city, someone could still steal
      that power and try to use it to further
      their own ambitions, regardless of the
      price to be paid. Umbrella may only be
      the beginning of this nightmare. The
      mystery surrounding the court decision
      makes that much pretty obvious.

   -Ozwell E. Spencer Profile
      The founder of Umbrella Corporation.
      Ozwell E. Spencer is a man of noble
      birth and together with James Marcus and
      Edward Ashford, he discovered the
      Progenitor virus. To continue
      researching the virus as a potential
      biological weapon, the three created
      Umbrella Corporation as a front for
      their activities.

      Spencer mercilessly removed rival after
      rival, continuing to expand his own
      influence. With the completion of
      research on the T-virus, he seized full
      control of Umbrella. He never reveals
      himself or his true intentions even to
      officers of the company, leaving Spencer
      a figure shrouded in mystery.
