Jabberwock S3
Jabberwock S3 (BIOHAZARD THE DARKSIDE CHRONICLES)

Classification

B.O.W. Model: "Jabberwock S3"
Base Organism: Human

Title

Jabberwock S3

The Jabberwock S3 was a prototype humanoid B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon) developed by the rival company of the Umbrella Corporation by using the t-Veronica virus to strengthen the characteristics of a human host. 1 2

History

The Jabberwock S3 was developed using the recombinant strain of t-Veronica recovered by Albert Wesker from the corpse of Steve Burnside. Its development was inspired by the Umbrella B.O.W. "Bandersnatch" which was developed based on techniques derived from the B.O.W. "Tyrant" series.

Influenced by the Bandersnatch prototype, the rival company injected a fertilized human ovum with t-Veronica and promoted rapid growth to adulthood. This quick strategy eliminated the need for the delicate and expensive surgical procedures required for Tyrant development and achieved a reduced cost. The new creature displayed significant results and the prototype was mass-produced via cloning pending further improvements.

Several S3s were sold to drug lord Javier Hidalgo. The B.O.W. was first documented in the field by American military agents Leon S. Kennedy and Jack Krauser in 2002, after several were released by Hidalgo to kill them.

Attributes

Morphology

The Jabberwock S3's physical characteristics were reminiscent of previous t-Veronica human test subjects Nosferatu and Monster Steve. As it was infected with t-Veronica during embryogenesis, the resulting creature received more influence from the virus' insect genes and possessed a more inhuman and grotesque appearance in comparison with human hosts infected post-adulthood.

The virus' insect genes promoted the growth of eight sickle-shaped claws for arms rather than human hands. Five of these arms possessed strength and intensity comparable to steel with the ability to block bullets, while the remaining three grew out of the torso and were vestigial, rendering them useless. The plant genes within t-Veronica also gave the creature a green skin pigmentation due to the expression of chlorophyll.

During embryogenesis, t-Veronica promoted overexpression of the chromatin remodeling gene DOT1L (DOT1-like, histone H3 methyltransferase), which is linked to the eusociality of insects. However, this gene is also linked to dilated cardiomyopathy, enlargement of the heart and weakening and thinning of its walls. As a result, the creature's heart grew to hypertrophic proportions before the ribcage could even solidify and it was left exposed as a weak point.

The S3's head was equipped with a metal plate containing an internal compartment. However, its purpose was unknown.

Combat

The humanoid B.O.W. fault of lack of head protection was corrected by the S3 wrapping its arms around its entire body, rendering conventional gunfire useless. It also used this method to protect its exposed heart. Its sickle-like arms were its main weapon in combat but it could also attack in close-quarters by biting victims with its distended mouth which possessed mandible-like growths. 3

It possessed a sufficient level of intelligence to understand commands and accomplish them under a variety of circumstances with the ability to distinguish between targets. This made the S3 effective at killing specific targets without the need for a surveillance device like the Hunter II and it could also conduct a variety of additional tasks such as simply tracking or wounding a target. This realized the ideal of a B.O.W. able to assassinate specific targets without outside assistance previously only achieved by the Tyrant series.

The S3's grotesque appearance made it impossible to infiltrate enemy territory disguised as a human. Its means of transport and deployment were also limited by its large size. However, it excelled as weapon in combat and tracking missions lacking the need for infiltration.

Etymology

"Jabberwock" is derived from, like its Bandersnatch cousin, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson's Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, namely the poem "Jabberwocky". It is a manifestation of the deepest level of fear in the human psyche and it always stands for a large, carnivorous and medieval beast. It represents all the things a person is afraid of but cannot put a name to.
