Title

FBC

The FBC (Federal Bioterrorism Commission) was the United States federal anti-bioterrorism committee formed by the federal government as the enforcement agency of biological defense and bioterrorism countermeasures. It had abundant financial power and funding equal to the military budget of a small country, and conducted exclusive equipment development. It was disbanded in 2005 and absorbed by the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance). 1

History

Formation (2001)

The FBC was established in 2001 upon the U.S. Congress' passing of the National Biological Defense Act based on a wave of public opinion and appeals spearheaded by Morgan Lansdale over the increasing danger of bioterrorism and necessity for a specialized agency to take charge of countermeasures. Lansdale was elected as FBC Commissioner by the National Security Council.

Terragrigia Panic (2004)

In 2004, the FBC became the sole force responsible for handling the large-scale bioterrorism incident on the artificial marine city of Terragrigia, based on a stipulation in the city's treaty outlining that only the FBC could take charge in the event of bioterrorism. The organization suffered heavy casualties and faced much criticism in Europe over its heavy-handed monopolization of handling the incident. It eventually decided on the use of the city's solar satellite matrix, the "Regia Solis", to scorch the city and wipe out any traces of the virus and infected organisms.

The FBC organized a blockade around the ruins of Terragrigia and it was publicly announced that it had successfully disbanded the responsible terrorist group, Il Veltro, after a mop-up operation on their hideout. Following the events of the Terragrigia Panic, FBC agents Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat transferred to the BSAA. However, Sherawat acted as a mole for Lansdale.

Queen Zenobia Incident (2005)

In 2005, strange mutated carcasses began washing up on the beach of a coastal town in the Mediterranean near the ruins of Terragrigia. The FBC cordoned off the area and Lansdale sent a team to seize video evidence from the sunken Queen Dido Veltro which showed his collaboration with the group, but the team was wiped out by Veltro survivors. Around the same time, agents Raymond Vester and Rachael Foley were deployed to the Queen Zenobia. When the BSAA became involved, Lansdale ordered Jessica Sherawat to activate the self-destruct systems on the Queen Zenobia and its sister ship, the Queen Semiramis.

After the destruction of the two ships, evidence implicating Lansdale, the FBC raided the BSAA Headquarters and arrested Clive R. O'Brian on charges of collaborating with Veltro. However, O'Brian had sent BSAA agents Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine to retrieve the video evidence recorded by Veltro leader, Jack Norman. After the evidence was broadcast within the BSAA Headquarters, Lansdale was arrested.

Following Lansdale's arrest, the FBC was dissolved and its personnel and resources were transferred to the BSAA, which became well-respected for uncovering the FBC conspiracy and was reformed as a public organization under the authority of the United Nations.

Service Rules and Regulations

The FBC had exclusive jurisdiction over biological defense in countries or areas related to U.S. interests and conducted regulations with public health and biological defense agencies of other countries. It formulated systems considered necessary for research and development in relation to support, training and biological defense with FBC personnel officiation, and had the authority to draft schemes for budget and action plans under the approval of the National Security Council. It had always-alert emergency deployment forces under its direct control and possessed an incomparable organizational scale.

The FBC chairperson was elected by the National Security Council and not only commanded FBC personnel and shouldered the unification of strategic decisions and regulations, but also held the additional post of National Biological Defense Community Director. Regarding the enforcement of activity, they had the right to demand support from the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who participate in the national biological defense community. Preferential cooperation support was particularly required when related to national biological defense.
