Samurai Edge Barry Burton Model Ver.II Secret Birth Story

Samurai Edge Barry Burton Model Ver.II Secret Birth Story

BSAA Europe Headquarters Technology Development Division Assistant Deputy Manager Quint Cetcham.
There's a reason for that overly long title.

Quint Cetcham is an agent and technician one could call most senior from the old BSAA.
He is skilled and creative with a passionate attitude devoted above all to research and development with no equal among other members of the Technology Development Dvision, but on the other hand, one could argue that his personality and hobbies are eccentric and it's a common view among those around him that his behavior is annoying, and he has no qualities to teach or supervise others.
That is why he was content with handling the almost honorary post as Assistant Deputy Manager and didn't worry himself over it to the extent that he only remembered the title when asking the impossible of the Accounting Department to accomodate his research and development expenses.

Quint Cetcham
The BSAA's top tech geek who devised and developed his characteristic headset himself for use on missions.

---

This man wanders aimlessly in the organization devoting himself to research unconcerned with anyone's reactions, and now he's under increasing pressure.
Drenched in greasy sweat and overwhelmed by the silent pressures emanating from the monitor, he looked up and caught a face a step ahead of the monitor.

"W... what's the beef Mister Burton?"

His hoarse voice eeked out from the back of his throat and he didn't know whether he'd reached the monitor.

It began about a month ago with an email from an old friend, Jill Valentine.

She had said an old acquaintance was looking for an excellent gunsmith, had seen Jill's Samurai Edge and wanted to be introduced to the maker of the "Samurai Edge A1" that one could call a refined version of the former Samurai Edge, which Quint himself made several years ago.

He initially intended to decline.
He was running much research and development simultaneously with new ideas constantly overflowing.
Thinking it was a custom gun, he soon changed his mind after hearing the client's name.

The client's name was "Barry Burton."

There are some legendary individuals in the BSAA called the Original Eleven.
Jill mentioned above was one but her partner Chris Redfield can also be considered a true living legend.
Formerly belonging to the U.S. Air Force, afterwards Chris belonged to the Raccoon Police Department's urban police special ops unit "S.T.A.R.S." at the time of the famous Mansion Incident that is carved into bioterror history.
Temporarily registered at the BSAA, Barry Burton is a man continuing to fight bioterrorism in the role of a BSAA advisor.

And above all he was the man who along with gunsmith Joe Kendo built the original of that excellent "Samurai Edge" gun.

Barry was counting on him for a gun.
One could say he should have taken great pride as an engineer.

Barry's request was simple.

SAMURAI EDGE A1
Jill Valentine Model

At the time of the BSAA's initial establishment, there were no ordinary bioterrorist battles and Quint preached the necessity of purpose-built equipment capable of dealing with special situations, focusing on the customized "Samurai Edge" of the former Raccoon City police department spec ops unit S.T.A.R.S.--- originally an M92F.
He studied and inspected the "Samurai Edge" he borrowed from former S.T.A.R.S./current BSAA Jill Valentine and developed the "Samurai Edge A1" based on the new M9A1.
Afterwards this gun was given to Jill as she was active on the frontlines of anti-bioterrorism, but at this time a S.T.A.R.S. medallion on the grip and S.T.A.R.S. and Custom Shop Kendo on the slide were added.

BARRY BURTON

Former Raccoon Police Department spec ops unit S.T.A.R.S. officer who survived the "Mansion Incident" with Chris and Jill. Now belongs to the BSAA North America Branch.
He's a firearms specialist and veteran who went through the US Air Force and SWAT prior to S.T.A.R.S., as well as a good husband and father who always cares for his family.

Due to bitter experiences in his SWAT days Barry became a "power fanatic" in firearms, idealized a custom and asked his close friend, gunsmith Joe Kendo, to further improve the "Samurai Edge" custom handgun provided to S.T.A.R.S.

---

"Make me a new Samurai Edge"

He heard that the original Samurai Edge he'd been using habitually for many years had been damaged in the war on bioterrorism.
The picture of the Samurai Edge he'd sent was horrible.
The characteristic brigadier slide was cracked, the compensator melted and bubbled, the magazine laid bare and the hybrid custom grip was damaged.
When even an original Samurai Edge could end up like this, it was far beyond an engineer like Quint's imagination what sort of situations he'd fallen into.

---

SAMURAI EDGE BARRY BURTON MODEL

Back in Barry's S.T.A.R.S. days before that Mansion Incident, a custom Samurai Edge was made for Barry by gunsmith Joe Kendo.
Feeling that the 9mm chambered Samurai Edge supplied to S.T.A.R.S. was lacking in power, Barry asked his close friend Joe Kendo for a custom. With that a Samurai Edge for Barry's personal use was made based on the "M96F" chambered for .40SW ammunition and finished into a bold design unique to Barry's proficient brawn.

---

But he was confident.
He had studied the Samurai Edge itself exhaustively along with a track record in producing the Samurai Edge A1.
His skills had notably improved since then as well.

In comparison to Jill's, Barry's base gun was a M96F attached with a large compensator to dampen recoil and used a long shot magazine to supplement the reduced number of bullets, but the basic design is the same.

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SIMPLE TASK

Production began triumphantly and it was completed two days ago one month after receiving the request and sent to Barry living in the USA, then he received a call from Barry who bathed him with an angry voice ringing like a thundering hammer for ten minutes.

Barry fell silent, his wary face unchanged from the first blow, and Quint spoke back in reply with his hoarse voice.

"Cetchum. What do you see right now?"

"Wha, I don..."

Quint didn't know the question's intent but focused his attention on his field of vision.

(Don't look, but rather observe)

He couldn't remember what movie the line was from.
Perhaps it was a line from a Japanese anime he saw long ago, but it unmistakebly became one of the foundations for Quint as an engineer.
Analyze what you see, classify, hypothesize and draw a conclusion.
Through this Quint has solved several difficult problems.
And now he still draws one conclusion.

"Ah..."

His voice eeked out, unable to verbalize.
Barry Burton was now on the monitor.
The face of a soldier with a long military record, whiteness mixed in his hair, a beard with deep wrinkles tucked away on his face.
But the prime of a warrior had already left him, and it was now the face of a man approaching old age.
Barry spoke first.
When he had asked him to make a new Samurai Edge for him he meant "for me, now."

Barry had asked for a Samurai Edge one could get the best performance out of but didn't want the high power derived from the .40SW bullets.
He had caught only the surface of the words and was content with a simple job imitating the previous Samurai Edge.
Quint was ashamed with his ignorance.

"Mister Burton you might think I have a lot of gall but please let me take the challenge once more. This time I'll make a Samurai Edge 'specially for the current you."

Quint's voice held no more fear or hesitation.
Barry nodded broadly, touched by his honest spirit.

BARRY BURTON'S S.T.A.R.S. DAYS

In 1996, the spec ops unit "S.T.A.R.S." was established by the Raccoon Police Department to immediately deal with increasing urban terrorism, diversifying crime networks, many emergencies and so on.
It consisted only of specialists headhunted regardless of whether they were military or private, and Barry Burton was 38 years old at this time, enrolled in "Alpha Team" led by Captain Albert Wesker. In operations he was often on the frontlines as BUM (backup man) supporting PM (point man) Chris Redfield as a team.

The individual with the highest skills in acts of combat as PM, but BUM is also required to be a parter equal in ability to the PM. It can be inferred that Barry's combat ability, with the strongest physical constitution and ability to use heavy weapons, was also in line with Chris.

TWO WEEKS LATER BARRY WAS UNDER THE LONDON SKY

He was ostensibly in the BSAA European Headquarters to instruct junior members, but it was actually at Quint's request.

"I'm making a Samurai Edge for the present you. I can't make it if I don't know the present you. Ah, don't worry. I greased some palms and asked you to be dispatched to the European Headquarters as an instructor. Oh? Didn't think I could do something like that? I'm the Technology Development Division Assistant Deputy Manager. People listen plenty if I just dangle this title."

He decided to follow intently as Quint obediently explained.
Barry gave a little guidance to the juniors during the day and spent most of the time in Quint's lab.
Beginning with height/weight measurements, body proportion measurements, physical strength, muscular strength, eyesight, etc, the collection of basic data was complete after a rushing day.
The optimum solution backed up by the collected data, Barry's strong thoughts on the gun and Quint's technology and knowledge made a big difference from the start.
Looking at them from the side it would seem they were arguing a lot.
In reality, many members of the Technology Development Division shrugged at the angry voices leaking out from the lab.

Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance: Anti-Bioterrorism Unit BSAA

An anti-bioterrorism unit established after Umbrella's collapse and funded by the Pharmaceutical Industry Association. Since the threat of bioterrorism became stronger, it was reorganized as a special ops unit under United Nations jurisdiction.
Other than the European headquarters there are seven branches in every corner of the world.

---

Meanwhile there was something Quint heard without protest.
It was to make the base gun the "M9" Barry brought.

"Joe Kendo gave this to me as a birthday present. It's not especially customized. But it's the best M9 and he's adjusted every detail. This'll be great for the new Samurai Edge."

Quint didn't disagree with those words.

The days of heated arguments faded in no time.

They repeated test firing while continuing to discuss buried among a mountain of prototypes, gradually burying the trench between them.
