No. 03 MAJINI

"Plaga", a parasitic organism which was sealed underground beneath a castle over which an old European family, the Salazar family, reigned.
When this Plaga parasitizes a human and assimilates into the central nervous system, a person loses their reason and comes to attack others under the command of another kind of Plaga, a kind known as the dominant species (or a human whom it has parasitized).
Despite the parasitized humans losing their reason, their human intelligence is not lost and it is possible for them to exchange words with each other through mutual understanding.
In addition, they use tools and have cunning with which they corner enemies in groups.

Humans who become such a state are called "Ganado" in the Leon Report, written by Leon S. Kennedy.

In this operation, the presence of this Plaga has been confirmed.
Why did the Plaga, documented in Europe, emerge in Africa?
The presence of Ricardo Irving, a biological weapons trafficker, has been indicated in the shadows.

According to information obtained by the BSAA Alpha Team at the risk of their lives, after this Plaga was recovered in Europe, it was subjected to biological and genetic remodeling, and an improved Plaga model was discovered with increased purity as a weapon.
This improved Plaga model, named "Plaga Type 2" among its developers, was identified from a related document.

The specialty of Type 2 is in its parasitism method.

The original Plaga confirmed in Europe parasitizes humans in an egg state.
It hatches and influences the mind by maturing within the body.
However, this Type 2 parasitizes humans in a mature state.
Also, the parasitism method is oral ingestion, jamming it in from the mouth.

Although it's a savage method, as a result, while the original required from several hours and several days from parasitism to mental control, the effects of Type 2 appear immediately.
Consequently, this point improved its convenience as a weapon.
In addition, the state of parasitism was witnessed by the BSAA members participating in this operation.

As for humans parasitized by Type 2, their mind is dominated and they lose reason and begin to attack people on command.
(Since application as a weapon is a requisite, it's believed that a person with the right of command does not necessarily have to be the dominant species Plaga) Intellect and the point of being dependent on the physical capabilities of parasitized humans remain, a feature inherited from the original species.

However, because the Plaga is actively parasitic and has also been seen taking action to increase numbers, it is surmised that proliferation as a weapon is also improved.

According to an obtained document, it seems that weapon dealers refer to humans infected with this Type 2 as "Majini."
This is a local word meaning "demon."

Additionally, although the existence of improved Plaga models after 3 or 4 is also expected due to the code-name of Type 2, their existence is unconfirmed at present.

Official Japanese Transcript

No. 03 マジニ

欧州の旧家、サラザール家が統治する城の地下に封印されていた寄生生命体「プラーガ」。
このプラーガが人間に寄生して中枢神経と同化すると、その人間は理性を失い、支配種と呼ばれる別種のプラーガ(もしくはそれに寄生された人間)からの命令のままに人を襲うようになる。
寄生された人間は理性こそ失うが、人間の知能までは失われておらず、お互い言葉を交わしての意思疎通が可能である。
また、道具を使い、敵を集団で追い込む狡猾さも持ち合わせている。

このような状態になった人間をレオン·S·ケネディが記したレオン·レポートでは「ガナード」と呼んでいる。

本作戦でも、このプラーガの存在が確認されている。
なぜ、欧州で確認されたプラーガが、アフリカに出現したのか。
その影には、生物兵器の密売人リカルド·アーヴィングの存在がうかがえる。

BSAAアルファチームがその命を賭して得た情報によると、このプラーガは欧州で回収された後、生物学的、遺伝学的な改造を施され、兵器としての純度が高められた改良型プラーガ であることが分かった。
この改良型プラーガは、開発者の間では「プラーガ·タイプ2」と呼ばれていることが関係する資料から確認されている。

タイプ2の特徴は、その寄生方法にある。

欧州で確認されたオリジナルのプラーガは、卵の状態で人間に寄生。
ふ化し、体内で成長することにより精神の支配を行う。
しかしこのタイプ2は、成長した状態で人間に寄生する。
そして、その寄生方法は経口摂取、つまりは口から押し込むのである。

荒っぽい方法ではあるが、その結果、オリジナルでは寄生から精神の支配まで数時間から数日を要したのに対し、タイプ2の効果は即時に現れる。
この点が兵器としての利便性を高めた結果なのであろう。
なお、この寄生の様子は、作戦に参加したBSAA隊員によつても目撃されている。

タイプ2に寄生された人間は精神を支配されて理性を失い、命令のままに人を襲い始める。
(兵器として運用することが前提となっているため、命令権を持つ人物が、必ずしも支配種プラーガである必要はないと考えられる)知性もそのままなのと、身体的な能力は寄生された人間の能力に依存するという点も、原種からの特徴として受け継がれている。

ただし、積極的にプラーガを寄生させ、仲間を増やそうとする行動も見受けられるため、兵器としての拡散性も高められていると推測される。
入手した資料によると、このタイプ2に感染させられた人間のことを、武器商人たちは「マジニ」と呼称していたようである。
これは現地の言葉で「悪霊」という意味である。

なお、タイプ2というコードネームから3、4以降の改良型プラーガの存在も予想されるが、現在のところ、その存在は確認されていない。

MAJINI

Listed below is what is currently known regarding the Las Plagas parasite:

Though only recently discovered, the parasite known as Las Plagas was sealed away under the family castle of castellan Ramon Salazar for many generations.

The parasite attaches itself to a human host and is assimilated by the central nervous system. Infected humans lose all rational thinking faculties and are wholly subject to control by another type of Plaga known as control Plaga (usually another infected human). Host may lack rational thought function, but they still retain human-level intelligence such as the ability to understand and communicate with each other. They can also use tools and are surprisingly crafty when working in groups
against an enemy.

Leon S. Kennedy documented his encounter with these infected humans in the Kennedy Report. In his report they were referred to as Ganados.

The presence of Las Plagas in this mission has been confirmed. It is currently unknown how the parasites, discovered in Europe, came to present in Africa. A known bioweapons smuggler, Ricardo Irving, is wanted for questioning regarding this matter.

This information was obtained by the BSAA's Alpha Team at great personal risk to themselves. Their report indicated that a Las Plagas sample was extracted from Europe and has undergone both biological and genetic modification, creating a more
effective and potentially dangerous biological weapon.

This modified Las Plagas has been classified by researchers as Type 2 Plagas. The presence of the Type 2 Plagas has been confirmed to be present in Africa by carious intel reports.

Type 2's initial infection characteristics vary from the original parasite's infection.

The Las Plagas discovered in Europe were infected into humans during the egg phase. They would then reach maturity within the host body at which point hey would assume control of the host's central nervous system.

With Type 2, infection occurs from a mature parasite. This requires it to enter the host orally, usually by being forced directly into the potential host's mouth.

The observed result of this type of infection method is one of extreme muscular convulsions and uncontrollable body spasms.

Also of note, whereas the original Las Plagas took anywhere from a few hours to a few days to assimilate a host, Type 2 requires almost zero maturation time. From this point alone, Type 2 is a much more efficient weapon.

Infections of this type have already been witnessed by BSAA operatives currently stationed in the area.

Type 2 takes over the central nervous system of infected humans, and incapacitates normal rational thought faculties. The infected hosts become willing subjects to the ones that control them. (However, to maximize their effectiveness as a weapon, the person(s) who command them do not need to possess a control Plaga to do so.)

Hosts retain their intelligence, and the abilities of the host are dependent on the abilities inherent in the human before infection. This is the same as with the original version of the Las Plagas parasite.

It has been speculated that to raise their proliferation as a weapon, the parasite has been altered so that its hosts will actively infect others in order to increase their numbers.

According to intel reports, Type 2 hosts are apparently known as Majini to weapons dealers. This word comes from the local language meaning "evil spirit".

Because the codename Type 2 exists, it is presumed that there are subsequent numbered types (e.g. Type 3 and Type 4). No confirmation of this, however, has been acquired at this time.
