Title

Clive R. O'Brian

Clive R. O'Brian was the first director of the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) and one of the "Original Eleven" founding members. An expert on bioterrorism, he was a reassuring leader who recruited each member of the organization and was skilled in bringing together the initially ruffian-filled group and leading them effectively.

He preferred to stay behind the scenes and rarely led operations, often saying, "let not your left hand know what your right hand does" from "Matthew 6:3" in the Bible. He believed that the motive to seek fame was impure in itself. His clothes were always rough and untidy, but he was in fact a crafty individual adept in business and political matters.

History

In 2003, as an expert on bioterrorism, O'Brian was one of the initial eleven individuals invited by the Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies to join its recently formed civilian counter bioterrorism organization, and was appointed as director. Afterwards, he recruited almost every subsequent member of the organization, rarely participating in operations directly and acting as a conduit between the different offices, teams and agents.

In 2004, during the bioterrorism attack on Terragrigia by the international terrorist group Il Veltro, O'Brian became the only directly dispatched member of the BSAA in the field during the incident as an observer to assist the FBC (Federal Bioterrorism Commission). He was forced to work with virtually no support staff and was almost entirely overruled by FBC Commissioner Morgan Lansdale. He strictly disagreed with the FBC’s decision to use the city's Regia SOLIS (Solar Integrated System) satellite matrix against it, believing it would only create more terrorists.

In 2005, O'Brian was approached by FBC agent Raymond Vester, who suspected that Lansdale was not who he seemed and had ulterior motives behind Terragrigia. Meanwhile, strange carcasses began washing ashore on the beach of a coastal town close to Terragrigia's ruins. The two decided to orchestrate a fake Veltro revival act, utilizing an abandoned airport in a mountain range in Finland as a base of operations for a group of copy-cat terrorists. Posing as the leader, Vester organized a large-scale operation utilizing a prototype B.O.W. Fenrir and details of the operation and location of the base were leaked to the BSAA. 

When the BSAA began their investigation, Lansdale sent the prototype B.O.W. Farfarello to sweep the base. It became obvious that Lansdale had a spy in the BSAA. Now aware of this fact, O'Brian dispatched Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawat to Finland to find the base. Meanwhile, he participated in a mission with Jill Valentine and Parker Luciani to investigate the strange carcasses. Under a plan devised by O'Brian to fake the capture of Chris and Jessica, Vester seajacked the Queen Zenobia and informed O'Brian that their plan needed to be pushed forward. In response, O'Brian dispatched Valentine and Luciani to the ship. As planned, contact was also lost with them and O'Brian sent Redfield and Sherawat to find them. Meanwhile, he dispatched Keith Lumley and Quint Cetchum to investigate fake Veltro base, where they hacked into the FBC's database and discovered new evidence implicating Lansdale.

As the events unfolded, it was discovered that Sherawat was the spy. Upon the destruction of the Queen Zenobia, using the information he received from Lumley and Cetchum concerning the existence of the Queen Dido, where Lansdale sent a team to retrieve a recording of him suppling Norman with t-Abyss, O'Brian sent Redfield and Valentine to the sunken ship to find the evidence and expose Lansdale. Shortly after, O'Brian was arrested by the FBC, but was exonerated after the evidence was displayed. In turn, he arrested Lansdale.

Following the events, O'Brian decided to take responsibility for his risky and almost disastrous plan. He resigned from the BSAA and began writing his detective novel The Unveiled Abyss from the comfort of his own home.
