Classification

B.O.W. Model: "NE-α Type" (Nemesis)

Title

NE-α Type

The NE-α Type (also known simply as "Nemesis") was an artificially created "Living Parasitic Organism" (parasitoid) B.O.W. developed as the primary component of the "Nemesis Project" by the European branch of the Umbrella Corporation through genetic modification and experimentation at the Sixth Laboratory in France. The ultimate goal of the project was to provide the intelligence and biological body for combat separately and combine them to form a superior third-generation B.O.W. By administering the parasite to a B.O.W., a new and more powerful creature can be created. 1

History

Nemesis Project (1988)

From the outset, Umbrella's B.O.W. program suffered from a major fault; the actual control of B.O.W.s as weapons. Although the intelligent and controllable "Hunter" B.O.W. had been successfully developed and was able to carry out simple orders, most other B.O.W.s still suffered from being uncontrollable. In response, the European branches of the company (administered directly under Umbrella Headquarters) began researching new unique methods with which to develop an intelligent B.O.W. with high combat ability and able to be controlled. In 1988, the "Nemesis Project" was initiated by a French research team in the Umbrella Europe Sixth Laboratory. The goal of the project was the development of a genetically modified organic parasite which could amplify the abilities of a B.O.W. while improving control; a B.O.W. to strengthen B.O.W.s. Immediate results were produced in the form of a prototype parasite specimen, but the prototype had a major fault of killing its hosts just five minutes after taking full control.

That same year, the initial prototype was imported by Albert Wesker with the help of Ozwell E. Spencer to the Arklay Laboratory where it was administered to Lisa Trevor. In a shocking turn of events, her body seemingly absorbed the parasite with no noticeable side-effects. Further examination heralded the discovery of what would later become the G-virus. Over the next decade, the Sixth Laboratory continued to improve upon the Nemesis parasite, eventually removing the serious bottleneck of killing its hosts. 2

Nemesis-T Type (1998)

The inability to control the Tyrant (T-002 Type) during the Mansion Incident alerted Umbrella's B.O.W. research teams that the level of intelligence of almost all B.O.W.s created with the t-virus was very low, making them inappropriate to be sold as viable products for detailed and extensive missions. In an effort to develop a new, more powerful and intelligent B.O.W. while turning every other Tyrant project on its ear, the Sixth Laboratory decided to combine the improved NE-α parasite with the host body of a mass produced Tyrant (T-103 Type), forming an "Enhanced Intelligence Control System" which would increase the intelligence, control system and combat capabilities of the T-103 far beyond what was originally thought possible. This also presented a prime opportunity to the France branch in their competitive development with Umbrella U.S.A. 3

After injecting the Nemesis into the host's spinal cord at a cellular level, it begins to feed on the t-virus in its body, using it to spread throughout the Tyrant's entire system. After forming a new, unique brain and taking control over the original, the parasite then began to make changes to the Tyrant's entire nervous system. As a result, the Tyrant's thought process and many body functions were taken over by the parasite, allowing it to be completely controlled from the outside. The resulting Tyrant was known as the "Nemesis-T Type". 4

Attributes

The NE-α was engineered during its creation to maintain a certain level of intelligence of its own as well as a highly developed aptitude for combat. It is never administered to a subject in its mature form, instead it is administered at a cellular level through the host's spinal cord. This makes it suitable exclusively for vertebrae creatures, particularly mammals. The lack of higher brain functions in reptiles and amphibians also makes them unsuitable for realizing the full potential of the parasite. This is the reason why the highly-developed and already intelligent Tyrant T-103, based on a human, was chosen as the main host in the end although during its 10 years of development, lower-level B.O.W.s such as the Cerberus were utilized for experimentation. Physically, the parasite has seven large tentacles which spread throughout the host's body, a bundle of smaller and thinner tentacles protruding from the back-end of the parasite body and a set of extremely small "feeler-like" extensions at its front.

Once injected into a mammalian host, the parasite acts by invading the host's entire body through a gradual process, first by devouring the t-virus infected cells of the B.O.W. in order to reproduce, then forming an independent "brain" around the spinal cord, where it is shielded by the host's ribs. During this process, the parasite physically bends the spinal cord into a shape which resembles an extreme case of the scoliosis medical condition. Meanwhile, the parasite erodes the host's central nervous system and destroys the frontal lobe, linking the rest of the original brain's functions to the new brain. Through this, the host's entire neural network is transformed and improved, and the Nemesis takes control of the host's mind and all bodily functions including every individual surviving organ. The tentacles of the parasite spread throughout the body and enlarge to the point where they protrude, and are capable of spreading a stronger form of the t-virus through direct injection. The parasite is also able to produce special secretions which raise the regenerative ability of the B.O.W. far beyond what was thought possible, and are responsible for the monstrous appearance of an NE-Type B.O.W. The parasite begins to falter however with heavier injuries which require greater levels of healing and regeneration, producing strange and awkward-looking mutations. The resulting mutations are completely unpredictable.

Creatures which have been administered the Nemesis are also known to feast upon other T-Type B.O.W.s as a means of sustenance to fuel growth and regeneration after heavy damage, provided by the newly ingested infected cells which speed up the rate of the NE-Type creature's mutation.
