CHIEF SCIENTIST BRANDON'S DIARY 2

1968
April 15
More than a year has passed without results.
We've used up the supply of the Progenitor Virus we took home with us.
We can't waste anymore time. Dr. Marcus and I have decided to return to Africa.
Additionally, it'll be difficult to wear down the nerves of the attacking Ndipaya tribe, but the price is necessary, we can't give up this research.

However, Lord Spencer's words smashed our tragic determination.
"You can steal that place. It's simple."
We must have looked so foolish then!

We never thought of such a thing.
Typical of the philistine Lord Spencer, but I'm very thankful for it now.
Dr. Marcus and I decided to accept his suggestion.

August 19
Good news has come at last!
We seem to have successfully expelled the Ndipaya tribe out of that place.
It appears we've only recaptured half of the underground ruins, but there's really no problem if we have the area where the Progenitor flower grows in our hands.

Furthermore, Lord Spencer said he'll build a facility in that place for researching the Progenitor Virus. For him, it's a wonderful idea.
Although Dr. Marcus and I instantly tried to begin preparations for Africa, Lord Spencer stopped us. He told Dr. Marcus that he wanted him to work as the director of the executive training center in Raccoon City.

I was bewildered by the request, but I think the environment is necessary for the doctor to research calmly.
Even if he goes to Africa, there's no good R&D equipment. It'll still be the same story when the laboratory is completed. I'll go to Africa alone and deliver the Progenitor Virus to Dr. Marcus.

Both Dr. Marcus and Lord Spencer agreed with my thoughts.
I must prepare for Africa at once. I'll be busy from tomorrow.

September 29
Two weeks have passed since I came to Africa. In the end, not taking the doctor was the right answer.
The research facility is a tent, where equipment is just piled up and armed soldiers are employed to guard it from the Ndipaya tribe's attacks.
And above all, the construction noise from building the research facility irritates me.

It's amusing, I was told I could undertake advanced research. Proper research can't be carried out in such a place!
All I can do is extract the Progenitor Virus from the Progenitor flower and send it to Dr. Marcus. So, I'll concentrate on that.

1969
June 15
The research facility's finally been completed.
Now it's clearly become the "Umbrella Africa Laboratory."
But in these nine months, I've understood something.
A research facility of this level is useless. We need a more substantial facility. Then we can further increase the number of researchers.

This is the place that should become the forefront of Progenitor Virus research.
The discoveries here will help Dr. Marcus' development of a new virus strain.
Fortunately, that tightwad Spencer has the same opinion too.
It's rare that I agree with him.

主任研究員ブランドンの日記・2

1968年
4月15日
あれから一年以上、成果が出ぬままに時が過ぎた。
持ち帰った始祖ウィルスも底をついた。
これ以上時間を無駄にすることはできない。マーカス博士と私はアフリカへ戻る決意をした。
また、ンディパヤ族の襲撃に神経をすり減らすことになるのは辛いが、研究のためには必要な代償をして諦めるしかない。

だが、その我々の悲壮な決意をスペンサー卿の一言が打ち砕いてしまった。
「ならば、あの地を奪えばいい。簡単なことだ」
その時の我々は、いかに間抜けな顔をしていただろうか!

そんなこと、思いもつかなかったのだ。
いかにも俗物のスペンサー卿らしい発想だが、今はそれがありがたかった。
マーカス博士と私は、その提案を受け入れることにした。

8月19日
ついに朗報がやってきた!
あの地からンディパヤ族を追い出すことに成功したそうだ。
実際には地下遺跡の半分を奪取したにすぎないそうだが、始祖花が生育しているあのエリアを手にすることができればなんの問題もない。

さらにスペンサー卿は、あの地に始祖ウィルスを研究するための施設を建設すると言う。 彼にしては、素晴らしいアイデアだ。
早速、マーカス博士と私はアフリカへ向かう準備に取り掛かろうとしたが、スペンサー卿がそれを止めた。 マーカス博士には、ラクーンシティにある幹部養成所の所長をして欲しいと言うのだ。

最初はその要請に面食らったが、考えてみれば博士には落ち着いて研究ができる環境が必要だ。
今、アフリカへ行ってもろくな研究設備はない。 研究所が出来上がるのは、まだ先の話だろう。 ならば私だけがアフリカへ出向き、始祖ウィルスをマーカス博士へお届けすればよい。

マーカス博士もスペンサー卿も、私の考えに同意してくれた。
早速、アフリカ行きの準備を整えなくては。明日からは忙しくなるぞ。

9月29日
アフリカに来て2週間が経つ。 やはり、博士はお連れしないで正解だった。
研究施設とは名ばかりの機材が積まれただけのテント、ンディパヤ族の襲撃を警戒するために雇われた武装した兵士たち。
そして何よりも私をイラつかせるのが、研究施設を作るための工事の騒音だ。

より高度な研究を行うためとはいえ、これではおかしくなってしまいそうだ。 こんなところで、まともな研究ができるわけがない!
ここで私ができることと言ったら、始祖花から始祖ウィルスを抽出し、マーカス博士にお送りすることだけだ。 それだけに集中することにしよう。

1969年
6月15日
ついに研究施設が完成した。
これで、晴れてここは「アンブレラ・アフリカ研究所」となったわけだ。
だが、この9ヶ月間で分かったことがある。
この程度の研究施設ではダメだ。もっと広く、充実した設備が必要だ。そして、もっと研究員を増員しなくては。

ここは始祖ウィルス研究の最前線となるべき場所だ。
ここでの発見が、そのままマーカス博士の新ウィルス開発の助けとなるだろう。
幸い、これについては、あの守銭奴のスペンサーも同じ意見のようだ。
あいつと意見が合うとは、珍しいこともあるものだ。

FROM CHIEF RESEARCHER BRANDON'S JOURNAL -No.2

1968

April 15
It's been over a year since we've had any breakthroughs. That's why Dr. Marcus and I have decided to return to Africa. We can no longer continue our research without the progenitor virus. I know these routine attacks by the Ndipaya are really going to wrack my nerves, but for the sake of our research, I will persevere.

In the face of my foreseen dismay it was Mr. Spencer who provided the answer.

"If you're worried about the Ndipaya, then we'll just have to remove them from the equation"

I can only imagine the lack of shock on our faces.

The idea never occurred to us. It was quite an atypical solution to our problems, but it seemed to be the only option available.

Dr. Marcus and I decided to try Mr. Spencer's plan.

Aug. 19
Finally, some good news! We learned they were able to chase the Ndipaya off their land. The land we acquired only amounts to half of those underground ruins, but if it includes the area where the Progenitor flower grows, then there should be no
issue.

Mr. Spencer said he plans to construct research facilities at the site, which will expedite our research into the virus.

We hastily made our preparations to depart for Africa, but Mr. Spencer requests that Dr. Marcus stay in Raccoon City to take over the Training Center.

We were initially taken aback by the request, but we soon realized it was the logical course of action. Dr. Marcus needs a calm environment to properly conduct his research. If he were in Africa, there would be no proper facility for him to use at this time. I just hope the African research facilities get built soon.

So now I will go to Africa and send back samples of the Progenitor virus to Dr. Marcus.

Both Dr. Marcus and Mr. Spencer agree this is the best course of action.

I have to start making preparations to go, I have a feeling I'll be pretty busy starting tomorrow.

Sept. 29
I've been in Africa for two weeks now. It's a good thing Dr. Marcus isn't here. This place is far from being a paradise of research and scientific study. The so-called research facilities are nothing more than a bunch of tents, and we have to employ armed
soldiers to keep the Ndipaya at bay.

But the thing that gets on my nerves the most is the sound of the construction for the real research facilities.

How am I suppose to concentrate and research when everything is threatening to drive me insane? I'm trying to just concentrate on extracting the virus samples from the Progenitor flower so I can send them to Dr. Marcus. Hopefully, if I focus on my work, I can remain sane in this godforsaken place.

1969

June 15
The research facilities are finally completed! This is the real Umbrella Africa Research Center, not just some pile of tents.
But I've come to a realization in the past nine months. The facilities are too small for our needs. We need to make them larger, more suitable for research.

Then we can fill them with more talented researchers.

This place needs to be our frontline in our Progenitor virus research. Our results will do a great service to Dr. Marcus and his viral research.

In a rare turn of events, that old skinflint Spencer actually agreed with me on this!
