* MEMO's


Well, since there currently isnt a MEMO FAQ for resident evil 4
so far, i thought it would be nice if i was the first to submit
one, for those who dont get it, MEMO is the same as files and
notes that you find in the game, its all here.

7th FEB 2005, 

Added the two missing Memo's, and the file is complete now.
Thanks to Justin Sparks <>


Here are all the files in the game listed in the order that you come
across them, read them for some revelaing story events if you haven't
finished the game yet.

                            PLAYING MANUAL 1

1. Shooting = Hold down the R button then use the control stick to aim
              the laser sight.
2. Combat Knife = Press and hold the L button to ready your knife and
                  press the A button to swing the weapon.
3. Action Button = You'll be able to perform various actions by pressing
                   the appropriate button that appears on the screen.

                            INFO ON ASHLEY

Name = Ashley Graham
Age  = 20
Daughter of the President of United States.

She was kidnapped by an unidentified group while on her way home from her
university. The kidnappers motive's are still unknown. Although there's
reliable information that the perpetrator is an insider. Only a handful
of people know about this kidnapping. Its been kept under the wraps
mostly due to the fact that we cant determine who the traitor is.

The guy's in intelligence say that they have reliable information that
Ashley's been sighted somewhere in Europe. But until we find out  who
the insider is, I dont want to believe. It could be a ploy.  We  have
very few leads as to the where abouts of Ashley. But  members  of the
secret service and anyone related to Ashley are being  questioned  by
an investigative team.

Even active agents are being investigated for some information. Its 
just a matter before the kidnapper is exposed.

                            PLAYING MANUAL 2

1. Reloading = Press the B button while holding down the firearm to
               reload your weapon.
2. Kicks = Approaching enemies that are either stunned or on their
           knees will allow Leon to perform kicks as prompted by
           the action button.
3. Changing Inventory Screens = Use the L R buttons to switch back
                                and forth between the weapon/recovery
                                and the keys/treasure screens.

                            ALERT ORDER

Recently there has been information that a United States government
agent is here investigating the village. Do not let this American
agent get in contact with the prisoner. For those of you not yet
informed, the prisoner is being held in an old house beyond the
farm. We will transfer the prisoner to a more secure location in
the valley when we are ready. The prisoner is to stay here until
further notice. Meanwhile do not let the American agent near the

We do not know how the American government found out about our 
village. But we are investigating. I sense a third party other
then the United States government involved here. My fellow men
stay alert.

- Chief, Bitores Mendez.

                            ABOUT THE BLUE MADELLIONs

15 Blue Medallions. 
7 in the farm.. 8 in the cemetery.
For those of you who destroy more then 10 medallions, you will be
awarded. (The rest is illegible).

                            CHIEF's NOTE

As instructed by Lord Saddler, I have the agent in confinement, alive.
Why keep him alive ?! I do not fully understand what the lord's inten-
tions are. I would however think he'd keep them separate. Not confine
them together as has been ordered. I do not believe Luis will trust a
stranger but by chance they did cooperate the situation could get a
bit more complicated.

If for some reason, an unknwon third party is involved, i don't think
they'd let a chance like this slip by. But maybe its all Lord Saddler's
ploy. Leaving us vulnerable so this third party will surface, if they
even exit that is...

It is an unlikely possibilaty, but if a prowler is already amongst us 
then our plans could be ruined. I guess the lord thinks its worth the
risk, if we're able to stop whatever conspiracy is at work. At any
rate its the Lord's call, we will trust his judgement as always.

                            CLOSURE OF THE CHURCH

Reguarding the two fugitives, the apprehension of Luis is our top
priority. The american agent a distant second. What Luis stole from
us is far more important then the girl. Unless we get it back the
girl will become useless to us. We must get it back to execute our
plan to the end. If it gets in the wrong hands the world would become
a totally different place then what Lord Saddler has envisioned.

At all costs we mustn't let that happen. Never the less, we're not
letting go of the girl, to ensure that the agent does not get to
her. I have locked the church door where the girl is being held. 
Anyone who needs access to the church must first get approval from
Lord Saddler. There is a key beyond the lake but it should be safe
now that the Del Lago has been awakened by our lord. No one will get
across the lake alive.

Plus, our same blood courses through the agent's veins. It'll be just
a matter of time before he joins us. Once he does, there will be
nobody else left that will come looking for the girl.

                            ANONYMOUS LETTER

There is an important item hidden in the falls, if you are able to
get it you might be able to get Ashely out of the church. But i'll
warn you, the route to the church isnt a walk in the park by any 
means. They've developed whats called an "El gigante" so god bless.

About whats been going on in your body, if I could help you, I would.
But unfortunately its beyond my power.

                            PLAYING MANUAL 3

1. Commands = Leon can give commands to Ashley to either Wait or 
              Follow by pressing the X button.
2. Ashley and action buttons = Depending on the situation Leon and
                               Ashley can cooperate to get past 
                               various obstacles.
3. Ashley's health = You can use recovery items not only on Leon
                     but on Ashley as well.
4. Ashley and game over = Leon has failed his mission if Ashley is
                          either killed or carried away by enemies.

                            SERA AND THE THIRD PARTY

Where abouts of Sera are still unknown. Most likely he's using an
old secret passage taught to him by his grand father who used to 
hunt in this region long ago. Im pretty certain that he's hiding
our property somewhere in the forest.

If his grand father was stil alive, i would have used him to find
Sera. But HOW did he find out about the egg injected into his body?
And the fact that he was able to remove it before it hatched is
concering. Another factor taht concerns me is that Sera escaped with
our property just before the American agent arrived. I don't believe
that was just a coincidence.

There has to be another player involved in this. In order to settle
this whole situation, we have to capture Sera and wait for the effects
of the drug to wear off before we inject him with another egg. Once
this is done, whoever is behind all of this will surface. Nobody shall
interfere with our plas. Those who do shall suffer seera consequences.

                            TWO ROUTES

Just a while ago, I was informed by Lord Saddler that our men had
shot down a United States military helicopter. There shouldn't be
any more outside interference for a while now. Unless the United
States government determines who the traitor is, they can only
initiate very small covert operations. We must use this time to our
advantage and recapture the girl.

The two Americans can only get out of our terrotiry by using one of
two routes. This is where we'll stop them. We shall make use of our
forces to the greatest degree.

We will deploy a large number of Ganados in one of the routes to
ensure that they do not slip by us. for the other route we shall
leave the task to El gigante. Which ever route they take, the agent
will never leave here alive. Not with the girl atleast.

                            VILLAGE's LAST DEFENCE

I clearly underestimated the American agent's capabilaty. He's still
alive. i thought that we could wait until the egg hatched, but at
this rate he could destroy the entire village before it does. We
must take care of this nuisance.

We shall change our priorities, for the time being we will cease our
hunt for Luis and ambush the two Americans. There is a building used
to enlighten betrayers just beyond the point where you get off the
lift. Its a perfect place for ambushing them. If all else fails, they
still would need to face me in order o get past the last gate that
leads out of the village. For only before my sight will the gate open.

                            CAPTURE LUIS SERA

I have confirmation that Sera has entered the castle. Why would he
return during his escape leaves me to question his motives. But we
must seize this moment to capture him. We will get the other two
Americans after we apprehent Sera. It appears he took some vaccines
when he stole our "Sample". The vaccines we can do without but we
must retriev the sample for it is our life blood.

I feel there is somebody else or soem other group involved in this
whole affair. if the sample were to get into the hands of that other
entity, the world which we seek to create will not come. We must
apprehent Sera as quickly as possible.

                            LUIS's MEMO

There are some parasites that have the ability to control their 
hosts.  It's basic knowledge among biologists but not much is 
known as to how the parasites do it.  Studying these parasites 
specifically might reveal some clues to as to how the powers of 
the Las Plagas work.  And perhaps provide more insight on the 
victimes of the Las Plagas, the Los Ganados.  Here is a list of 
some of the parasites that have the ability to manipulate the 
behavioral patterns of their host.

Dicrocoelium = Once the larvae of this parasite migrates to the 
ant's esophagus, it alters the behavior of the ant.  When the 
temperature drops in the evening,  the infected any climbs to 
the top of a plant and clamps onto a leaf using its mandible.  
It stays there immobile until the next morning, placing the ant 
where it's most vulnerable to be eaten by a browsing herbivore 
such as sheep.  One could conclude that the parasite is 
manipulating the host's behavior to its way into the body of 
its definitive host.

Galactosomum = The larvae of this parasite makes its home inside 
the brain of a fish such as the yellowtail and the parrot bass.  
Once infected, the fish make their way up to the water's surface 
where they'll swim until eaten by seabirds.  Once again, the 
peculiar behavior can only be explained by the parasite's desire 
to get into the bodies of the seabirds.

Leucochlordium = This parasite's sporcysts develop in the snail's 
tentacles.  The sporocysts are vivid in color and pulsate continually 
somewhat like a worm.  Surprisingly the infected snail makes its 
way to the top of a plant where it is most visible to the eyes of 
birds, therefore more likely to be eaten.  Once eaten by a bird, 
the parasite will complete its metamorphosis into an adult.

                            CASTELLAN MEMO

For many years the Salazar family has served as the  castellans  of 
this castle. However, not everything is bright, for my ancestry has 
a dark past.  Long ago there once was a religious group that had deep 
roots in this region called the Los Illuminados.  Unjustly  however, 
the first castellan of the castle took away their rights and powers. 
As a follower of this religion and as the 8th Castellan, I felt that 
it was my duty as well as my responsibility to atone for that sin. I 
knew the best way to atone for that sin was to  give power  back to 
those who we once took it away from, the Los Illunimados.  

As expected  it  took  a little time, but we were able to rejuvenate 
the once sealed Las Plagas.  With this success I was one step closer 
to the revival of the Los Illuminados.   The  reason  why I released 
the Las Plagas from deep under  the  castle  and  gave  them to Lord 
Saddler was not  only  to  repay  for the sins of my ancestors but I 
felt certain that  the  Lord  would make better use of this power to 
help save the world.  To save those that  have sinned with the power 
of the Las Plagas and to cleanse  the  their  souls creating a world 
without sinners.  The way it  was meant  to be.  Once cleansed, they 
would become  one  of  the  many  Ganados where they will find their 
reason to  live.   And  after the Lord has succeeded in creating the 
world in which  he  has envisioned,  then  the  sins  of  my Salazar 
family will be atoned for.

                            FEMALE INTRUDER

There seems to be a female intruder among us.  We believe she's connected 
with Sera.  We also believe that she was the  one  who  removed  the  egg 
injected into Sera before it hatched. She may have  had  him  retirve the 
"sample" before the American  agent's  arrival.   It's  obvious  that her 
objective is the "sample".   We  must  get  to  her before she is able to 
reestablish contact with Sera.  

There's also reason to believe that she's working  for somebody. We need 
her alive  for  interrogation.  The female should be able to answer all 
our questions.  After  we  have captured her, Sera will no longer be of  
any  concern.   As  long  as  we  retrieve the "sample", you may dispose 
of him as you see fit.

                            BUTLER's MEMO

Knowing that Sr. Ramon Salazar has no family, Lord Saddler must have
 used his strong faith in the Los Illuminados to his advantage to 
talk Sr. Salazar into undoing the seal of the Las Plagas once done 
by his ancestor.  Sr. Salazar would never do such a thing unless he 
was in some way being used unknowingly.  I should have sensed the 
Lord's dirty scheme sooner.  I feel I'm partly responsible for all 
of this.  I have no idea as to what the Lord is planning but Sr. 
Salazar was just being used.  

It is too late now however, Sr. Salazar has already taken the Plaga 
into his body.  There is no turning back once the Plaga has turned 
into an adult in the body.  The Plaga parasite will not die unless 
the host dies.  There's no cure.  Perhaps, Sr. Salazar may have been 
vaguely aware of the Lord's plan all along.  But it's so hard to 
tell.  Nevertheless, there's nothing I can do about it now.  I have 
served the Salazar family for generations.  I am prepared to continue 
my services until the very end.

                            SAMPLE RETRIEVED

As you may have heard, Luis Sera has been disposed of by Lord Saddler.
The "sample" is back where it belongs.  I had hoped  that the whole 
matter could be resolved without troubling the  Lord.  However,  as  
long as the "sample" is safe we can all rejoice, for  our  time  is  
nearly at hand.  Now that the "sample" is  back  in  our safe hands, 
it'll be a bit more difficult for  that troublesome woman to get it.  
In light of all this, it's unfortunate  that Sera had to go. Like us,
 he would have had a bright future if only he had shown more fiath in 
our beliefs.  

As for the other two Americans, the Lord has left the matter in our
hands.  We must not disappoint the Lord.  We shall capture Ashley 
and take her to the Lord and dispose of the American agent.

                            RITUAL PREPRATIONS

Thanks to the efforts of the "Novistadors," we have been able to 
recapture Ashley.  We shall prepare for the sacred ritual as 
quickly as possible and make Ashley an official member of the Los 
Illuminados.  While we prepare for the ritual, those of you who 
feel inclined can attend to our American friend.  We should be able 
to hold off our friend for at least a little while by jamming the 
gears in the clock tower with something.  

I think if we jam the gears in 3 places, it should give us enough 
time to prepare everything for the ritual.  Now go and entertain o
ur American tourist.

                            LUIS's MEMO 2

The first castellan buried the Las Plagas deep underground below 
the castle to hide their very existence.  But when Salazar released 
the Las Plagas, no one thought he could bring them back  to  life.
Because when Salazar found them they  were  all  just  fossilized 
remains.  Everyone knew that the parasitic  organisms  could  not 
survive without their hosts.  That they couldn't sustain life on 
their own.  But when Salazar and his men excavated the remains, it 
almost appeared as if the  Las  Plagas  were  just  waiting to be 
discovered so that they could  resurrect.   Several  years  later, 
unexplainable convulsions started occurring among  the  villagers 
who helped with the excavation of the  Las  Plagas.  Then one day, 
all of a sudden, these villagers turned into violent savages. 

They later found out it was caused by the Las Plagas. Although they 
appeared fossilized, they were able to survive the long years by 
lying in a dormant state at the cellular level remaining in a 
spore-like form.Apparently during the excavation, the villagers 
inhaled the spores and within their bodies the parasites became 
active again. This is how the Las Plagas were resurrected. Even 
as I;m writing, the excavation of the Las Plagas continues. God 
only knows how many of these Plagas have been resurrected. Not to 
mention the countless number of Ganados that have been created. 
Their inhumane activity must be put to an end.  If they are not 
stopped, people around the world could turn into victims of this 
crazy cult organization.

                            LETTER FROM ADA

Once a Plaga egg hatches, it's nearly impossible to remove it from 
the body.  But if it's before it hatches, then it can be nautralized 
by medication.  If it does hatch you might be able to get it out by 
surgery before it turns to an adult.  But it won't be easy.  There's 
a high chance you won't survive the operation.  As far as I know the 
girl was injected with the egg before you.   Her  time  is  ticking.  
You should prepare yourself for the worst case scenario.

                            LUIS's MEMO 3

The hideous creates such as the El Gigante and the Novistadors are 
merely by-products of the diabolical and inhumane experiments 
conducted on the specimens that were once human.  But there'son 
type of creature that clearly distinguishes itself from the rest.  
These creatures are called Regenerators.  Regeneratoes have a 
superior metabolism that allows them to regenerate their lost body
parts at incredible speeds.  I've never seen anything like it... 

It is this characteristic that makes them almost invincible to 
conventional weapons.  But like any living creature, there's a 
way to kill it.  Apparently there are Plagas that live in its 
body somewhat like leeches.  

To stop its 
regeneration process, these leech-like Plagas must be located 
and then destroyed.  But they can't be seen with the naked eye.  
They can only be located through thermal imaging.  As far as I 
know, most of the Regererators most a number of these leech
like Plagas.  The kill the Regenerators, each one of these leech
like Plagas must be killed.

                            OUR PLAN

Because of that agent we lost Chief Mendez and Ramon.  Never the 
less, everything will proceed according to plan.  I must admit 
however, the loss of my loyal men is a bit disheartening.  But I 
will deal with it.  Replacing that loss will not come easy. I must 
choose wisely; for the Plaga reflects the conscience of their hosts.  

If chosen poorly, they could betray me. I need men who will swear 
their allegiance to me.  I've learned my lesson when Sera betrayed 
me. I will not make the same mistake again. In this important hour, 
I cannot and will not have anyone stand in my way.

                            LUIS's MEMO 4

I'll report my findings about the Plagas here. The Plagas have 3 
distinct characteristics.

1. As mentioned previously, the Plagas have the ability to manipulate 
   the behavioral patterns of their hosts.

2. The Plagas are social organisms. By this I mean that instead of 
   living individually, they live in perfect social harmony. It is
   believed that they have a collective intelligence.  This type of 
   behavior can be seen among insects such as bees and ants. However 
   this kind of social behavior is rarely seen among parasitic organisms.
   Perhaps it was a learned behavior by the Plagas.  I'm finding out if 
   this has any relationship with their first characteristic.

3. The Plagas have exceptional adaptation skills.  They are able to 
   live off many kinds of organisms by creating a symbiotic environment 
   quickly. This ability, when combined with their social behaviors, 
   allows them to interact intelligently between hosts regardless of 
   the host organism.  

I am ashamed to admit that my pure fascination with the Plagas, in 
hindsight, has blinded me to the true research objectives of the Los 
Illuminados.  Even with the knowledge that Saddler was going to abuse 
the results of these experiments, I could not pull myself away from 
my research. As a result, I am just as responsible for this whole mess 
as he is. I see now that I was wrong, but can I stop their evil plans

                            KRAUSER's NOTES

It turns out that old man Saddler wasn't buying me from the start.  
Even though I succeeded in kidnapping Ashley, I sort of sensed this 
when Saddler didn't completely let me in the loop.  Under the 
circumstances, I had no other alternative bu to call for her assistance.
Perhaps she knew this was the way it was going to turn out all along... 

My guess is that her ultimate goal might be different from Wesker's 
and mine.  This is just the perfect opoporunity to find out. And after 
I get rid of Leon and retrieve the sample, I'll put her in a bodybag
 along with Leon and send them both to Wesker.

                            LUIS's MEMO 5

From the initial stages of the research, we have been searching for 
a safe and practical removal of the Plaga. Ironically, it turns out 
that the real objective of this research was not to find a way to 
remove the Plagas from the infected persons but to find a way so that 
the Plaga could not be removed from the body easily. In the end, we 
were able to find out that the Plagas could be removed only by 
exposing them to a special radiation.  

The only drawback with this method is that is is a very painful 
procedure. Since the Plaga attaches itself to the nerves, there 
is a possibility that it may impair the consciousness of the host. 
Another fact that must be mentioned is that once the Plaga grows 
into an adult, the removal procedure could kill the host. But 
perhaps death isn't so bad when you think about the alternative.

                            OUR MISSION

The real power of the United States lies in  three  areas.  The 
Justice Department, the Administrative bodies, and the Military. 
In order to take control of these areas, we must  influence the
minds of the people who advise the President. After this is done,
the rest of the departments will quickly  fall  under  our  sway.
If by chance the United States were to figure  out our plan, the
damage caused should be minimal. We will still be able to conquer 
the country as planned using our backup plan. Once we control the 
country, we will use their international influence to our advantage. 
The rest of the world will fall swiftly.  

As already stated, if our first plan doesn't go as smoothly as 
expected, we'll proceed with out secondary plan.  By sending in 
our "special" forces we will infiltrate the country from within. 
Fear and chaos will spread through the nation like a virus. It'll 
only be a matter of time before the country loses its stability.  
At that time, when they're most vulnerable, we will strike.  
Rejoice my brethren; the world shall soon be cleansed.
