Super Tyrant (BIOHAZARD 2)

Classification

B.O.W. Model: "Tyrant (T-103 Type)"
Base Organism: Human

Title

Tyrant (T-103 Type)

Tyrant (T-103 Type) was the third Tyrant model developed by the Umbrella Corporation utilizing the t-virus, and the first model to be commercialized and mass-produced. It was the "ultimate form of a t-virus B.O.W." which Umbrella concentrated its resources and knowledge  to develop and was a smaller humanoid model with a high level of intelligence that allowed it to act in accordance with given commands independently. Its practicality as a weapon was increased through realizing an appearance closer to a human. 1 2 3 4 5

History

The T-103 was initially a development model created in Raccoon City by Dr. William Birkin. Since the T-002 combat model had already demonstrated extraordinary combat abilities, the T-103 was created in an attempt to further reach the goal of a B.O.W. which could disguise itself as a human and infiltrate enemy territory with the same combat abilities. Although it possessed a more humanoid appearance and could disguise itself in some cases, its large size prevented it from definitively reaching the goal. Its superiority over the T-002 and lack of a better alternative made it the prime candidate for mass-production, however, the combat data of the T-002 was required in order to demonstrate the Tyrant B.O.W.'s superior capabilities and complete the T-103 before mass-production could become a reality. To that end, a top-secret combat test against the elite officers of S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Service) was carried out in the Arklay Laboratory.

Influential data exceeding expectation was collected from the combat test and the results further raised the Tyrant's level of perfection by enabling Umbrella to begin "productivity improvement", which included the enhancement of its recovery ability through augmenting its metabolic strength. This improved version was then mass-produced via cloning and was referred to as Tyrant (T-103 Mass Produced Type) or sometimes as simply "Enhanced Tyrant." As their main B.O.W. series, the T-103 data was used by many of Umbrella's laboratories around the world to produce new B.O.W. models, and the Tyrant quickly became known in the weapons industry as a masterpiece B.O.W. with high intelligence and a human-like appearance. 6

Raccoon City Destruction Incident (Sep. 1998)

During the Raccoon City incident, Umbrella executive Sergei Vladimir deployed six mass-produced T-103s into the city on September 29. The first Tyrant (designated T-00) was air-dropped via helicopter into the R.P.D. (Raccoon Police Department) with an order to retrieve the G-virus hidden within the pendant belonging to Sherry Birkin. The remaining five were deployed to the Incineration Disposal Plant P-12A in order to ambush a U.S. Army Special Forces team that had come to rescue Dr. Birkin. T-00 was forced to undergo the Super Tyrant transformation after having been dropped into a molten forge by Leon S. Kennedy, and was later destroyed with a rocket launcher. The remaining five Tyrants were killed by the Special Forces, with one also reaching the Super Tyrant stage.

Attributes

The T-103 in its standard form resembled a large bald man wearing a military-like moss green trench-coat. The coat was actually the Tyrant's defensive power limiter. It acts as a defensive mechanism, being bulletproof, fireproof and explosion-proof, rendering the Tyrant completely impervious to most conventional weapons. The only unprotected weak-point is its head. The coat also acts as a power limiter to restrain the t-virus, preventing out of control mutation that would otherwise break control over the Tyrant and make it go berserk. It had an additional life-support function which would automatically remove the limiter when the Tyrant was near-death, allowing the t-virus to revitalise the Tyrant and mutate it into a superior form known as "Super Tyrant" (described below) in order to annihilate its attackers.

Improvements over the "00" series included a superior ability to calmly follow given commands without a trainer present, and also included an improved recovery ability through augmentation of its metabolic strength. This this was partially due to Umbrella's research on the Tyrant and also because the original base subjects were young adult males which naturally possessed a higher metabolism. This recovery ability would allow it to resurrect itself several times after being defeated until it either reached the end of its life support function or the level of damage exceeded the speed of its recovery. No exposed organ was visible on the T-103 model, removing a major weak point.

Appearance-wise, all mass produced T-103s were equipped with the same standard issue clothing beginning with their moss green military coat (which has an Umbrella badge as the main button), they also have a distinctive pair of gloves and boots. Other Tyrant models such as Ivan or Tyrant R may bear different coats with different colours, or lack the gloves and have a different pair of boots, etc. This signifies that they are derivations of the mass-produced line. To a limited extent, the T-103 can disguise itself as a human.

Super Tyrant

The "Super Tyrant" stage is actually the default form for a T-103. It is only when they have their limiter equipped immediately following creation that they are restrained to their standard form. If a T-103 received heavy damage and was near-death or had its limiter coat forcibly removed, the full mutation power of the t-virus inside its body would be unleashed and transform it into a "Super Tyrant" (for some derivative models, the terms "R", "Type-R" or "Reborn" were used instead). A Super Tyrant had greater strength, speed and agility, as well as superior combat and regeneration abilities. However, this form was completely uncontrollable. Limiters were used In an attempt to remedy this, and beginning with the T-103, special protective trenchcoats were equipped as the power limiter; an important component in the control system of the Tyrant. 7 8
