    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
    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.
    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)
          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
          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.

          Convicted of first degree
          murder. Court-martialed and

       -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
       -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
          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
          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.

       -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
          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
       -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
          Shortly after, the train suddenly
          started to move. It accelerated and
          was rapidly approaching dangerous
          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
          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
          Rebecca and Billy knew what had to be
          done as the curtain on their last battle

          I administered Progenitor to 4
          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
          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.

          We finally did it... the new virus! We

          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
          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
          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.

          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
          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
          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.

          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.

          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

       -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
          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
          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
       -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
          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
          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
          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,
       -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
       -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
          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
          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.

          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

          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.

       -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
          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
          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.

       -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
          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.

       -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.

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

          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

          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

       -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

       -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
          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
          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.

       -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.

          The Raccoon City project has been
          abandoned. Out political maneuvering
          in the Senate to delay their plans has
          failed. All supervisors should evacuate

       -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
          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
       -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
          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.

          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.

          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.

          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

          the underground research facilities

          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.

          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
          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.

          he did not yet realize was that there
          would be a powerful monster standing in
          between him and his escape.

          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
          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

       -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
          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.

          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

          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

          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.

          enjoy hunting her down later... I'm

       -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
       -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
          1) Tuning Control Synapse Connector
          The current risk with deployment of
          T-virus based weaponry is the lack of
          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
          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
          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
          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.

          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.

          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

          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
          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.

          for work. He is involved in Tyrant
          research and his experience in military
          affairs has made him instrumental in the

          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

          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

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

       -Letter from Sergei to Nicholai
          Nicholai, I apologize for the delay in
          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
          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
          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?
          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.
          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.
          Doubt? And what doubt would that be?
          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
          There are a lot of popular theories
          flying around about that one.
          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.
          But Umbrella's gone. Certainly that
          means the biggest menace is out of
          the way right?
          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.
          Inheriting a dark legacy? That sounds
          like something out of a TV show.
          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
          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.
