CHARACTER

Albert Wesker (Page 010)

PERSONAL DATA
AGE: 38
BLOOD TYPE: O
HEIGHT: 183cm
WEIGHT: 84.5kg

S.T.A.R.S. Captain and Alpha Team Leader. A bioengineering specialist. Unshaken by any crisis and able to make precise decisions with a cool head. In truth there are also many questions about his past background. As the person in charge of the unit he should be awaiting Bravo Team's report, but in this incident he is making mysterious moves with Umbrella scientist Birkin.

William Birkin

PERSONAL DATA
AGE: 36
BLOOD TYPE: O
HEIGHT: 178cm
WEIGHT: 66.7kg

A genius Umbrella scientist. From an executive candidate at the age of 16 he was appointed as chief scientist of the mansion, advancing virus research based on his own ideas and contributing to Umbrella's advancement. On the other hand, he is considerably difficult in terms of personality with a self-righteousness that cares for nobody but himself, and he dangerously does not know what to do when worked up. With his colleague and wife, he has a daughter becoming 12 years old.

James Marcus (Page 011)

PERSONAL DATA (at time of disappearance)
AGE: 70
BLOOD TYPE: A
HEIGHT: 180cm
WEIGHT: 68.6kg

First director of the Umbrella Executive Training Center. A friend of Umbrella founder Oswell E. Spencer and one of those who discovered the Progenitor Virus together. Although he was outstandingly excellent as a scientist, internal voices regarded him as dangerous because he deviated from the company's ethics with his mad devoted passion to virus research and cruel experiments. He mysteriously disappeared ten years ago.

S.T.A.R.S.
A special forces unit under the jurisdiction of the Raccoon Police Department (popularly called the R.P.D.). It was formed in 1996 as part of urban planning for the purpose of coping with urban terrorism and new crime rapidly increasing with Raccoon City's growth. It was mostly comprised of individuals scouted from the private sector with an emphasis on ability and it receives funding from private companies including Umbrella, a position unique within the R.P.D. To solve the frequently occurring bizarre murder cases, this time it has been decided to dispatch the two-unit formation of Alpha Team's 6 and Bravo Team's 6.

MONSTER

ZOMBIE (page 054)

If a human is exposed to the t-Virus, the body will undergo a mutation in a very short time. The skin will start to decay and the brain cells containing memories will be completely destroyed. Meanwhile the infected's metabolism will be highly enhanced allowing the Zombie to possess great strength much more powerful than normal people. Thus these monsters are referred to as "living dead risen from the grave." Even though the functions of their hearts, lungs and brains have ceased, they can still rise as a Zombie. But their appearance will be changed completely and turn into horrifying living dead. During this incident the people who turned into Zombies were supposed to be infected by leeches carrying the t-Virus created by Dr. Marcus.

CERBERUS (page 056)

A B.O.W. developed by administering the t-Virus to the Doberman pinscher, and the codename "Cerberus" refers to the hell guard in Greek myth. These are first-class dogs which have received military training were administered the t-Virus to enhance their toughness and combat abilities. Unlike the slow Zombies, these dogs have very high speed and agility and also have a habit of attacking prey as a group. If the objective is to clear a small area then they can be considered a successful model cheap to produce. However the problem is the dog's excessive aggressiveness which makes them very difficult to control. These creatures are hungry all the time and the resulting killing impulse makes them impossible to secure. Among the bizarre murders which occurred in the outskirts of Raccoon City, roughly more than half of the cases were committed by these killers that escaped from the mansion.

MIMICRY MARCUS (page 058)

A creature formed by countless leeches gathering together and turning into the figure of their "father" James Marcus. Usually this phenomenon is almost impossible to happen, but it is inferred that the cuticle covering their body are special with high permeability and through this they can glue together and form a humanoid shape and act under mutual understanding. Under normal conditions the Mimicry Marcus must stay in a stationary state but when it encounters its victims it quickly turns into a form more convenient to move. This creature can use its "hand" as a whip to attack. As said earlier, the leeches' skin has high permeability so this creature is quite weak to fire, acid or other chemicals.

LEECH (page 061)

A large blood-sucking leech reaching 20cm in length used for Dr. Marcus' varietal improvement of the Progenitor Virus and raised with paranoid love. It features a huge mouth not found in common leeches that cuts flesh more than sucking blood, giving a human injuries usually resulting in death. In addition, during this predatory action it injects a fluid held in its body containing a high concentration of t-Virus, so a victim also has a very high probability of becoming a Zombie. The heterogeneous life form seems to have achieved "evolution" including the capability for organized attacks and something similar to a perceptual organ akin to eyes, leaving no traces of a lowly Annelida.

CROW (page 062)

While not creatures developed as biological weapons, these wild crows were infected with the t-Virus by eating the flesh of an infected animal's corpse, causing secondary infection. Due to being covered by their feathers a change in appearance can hardly be seen. They are not afraid of gunshots and always attack people firstly; these are all common features of greatly increased ferociousness on creatures influenced by the virus. Considering infected creatures are sufficient food for them, it is believed that a large amount of crows were infected. What's more, due to the ability to fly, these crows are very likely to be the agents of spreading the virus.

PLAGUE CRAWLER (Page 064)

An insect type B.O.W. based on many species of insects experimentally developed in the early stages of Bio Organic Weapons research through repeated gene manipulation and virus administration. The effect of enlargement for arthropods, which could be called characteristic of the t-Virus, is fully displayed by the Plague Crawler, and it's believed that as it's equipped with two sickle-shaped forelimbs resembling weapons in addition to an over two meter physique, it's not lacking in assault capabilities. However development of intelligence was hardly seen and research seems to have been aborted since it isn't able to act in accordance with commands, a fatal flaw of B.O.W.'s that use insects as the host. Those abandoned in half-disposed form hid their huge dragonfly nymph-like figures and began breeding all over the executive training center. They prefer wet and dark places and usually makee ceilings their homes, and if they detect prey under this view they will drop in with their lean physiques and attack with agility.

GIANT SPIDER (Page 066)

Different from the Plague Crawler which was a kind of chimera (synthetic creature) produced by crossing the DNA of multiple insects, this spider which lived in nature served as a host secondarily infected with the t-Virus. For such a pureblood spider, the virus' enlargement effect immediately appeared. To put it another way no matter how it is attempted to improve it, no serious differentiation will be produced. In fact an officially developed spider type B.O.W. (Codename: Web Spinner) was documented in the Mansion Incident and no substantial differences were observed except for some species variations. Its venom amplification, enlargement and ability to freely walk along walls and ceilings are noteworthy, although in spite of this its low intelligence is beyond control and it has become an example supporting that insect-based B.O.W. research does not produce significant results.

ELIMINATOR (Page 068)

A B.O.W. which reached moderate perfection in Dr. Marcus' repeated screening t-Virus administration experiments on mammal hosts, before he made humans the host. Since it was originally a large simian with high intelligence it can carry out simple commands as directed and it's believed that with less inhibiting neurotransmission of the brain under erosion, it's stablilized unlike a simple virus infected human (= Zombie). Physically the virus' metabolic acceleration function acts effectively and the bare muscular tissue seen in its split skin shows they were rapidly augmented at an unbelievable level. Afterwards, still to decide on mass-production however, since its capabilities were insufficient, it demanded further development and inhumane human-based B.O.W. development began in earnest.

HUNTER (Page 070)

A model developed by Umbrella considered to have succeeded the most as a B.O.W. in both performance and cost aspects with various derivative models that would later be produced. A host human is administered the virus and its gene structure is altered with the addition of the genetic information of different species (details unknown, although reptiles are assumed from the characteristics of its appearance), realizing movement abilities far exceeding humans and preserving the minimum intelligence necessary to execute commands. Intelligence decline, the bottleneck of human hosts, is caused by the t-Virus thoroughly eroding the dominant cerebral neocortex. Therefore the Hunter uses the genes of lower class organisms with only instinctive old brains such as the brain stem and cerebellum which have been discovered to compensate for cerebral functions and improve controllability. As for physical structure its frame is already greatly distant from a human and since it attracts too much attention its use as a weapon is limited, but on a battlefield, its killing abilities serve as a pillar of virus dispersion and unparalleled attacks.

LURKER (Page 072)

An experimental frog-based B.O.W. chosen as an amphibian sample at the stage of screening the organism species most suitable for injection during the early days of t-Virus research. It gained a strong tongue for hunting and a huge physique able to swallow a human whole. It seems that additionally its light-dependant sight degenerated and the space where its eyeballs were probably serves as a middle ear cavity, developing sharp hearing to sense the approach of prey. Such changes resulted from the virus and some usefulness was recognized compared to arthropods which merely enlarged, but one way or another, practical application research was shelved due to the fatal defect of it indiscriminately targeting any approaching object as prey, as its brain was too primitive and control was impossible. Later a European laboratory created a Hunter subspecies that incorporated human genes into an amphibian host, but its eyesight was completely lost; a sign of specific mutation patterns in the combination of the t-Virus and tailless amphibians.

STINGER (Page 074)

The scorpion belongs to the creature class known as arachnids, a phylum very close to spiders in classification. Therefore like the Giant Spider it continually repeated ecdysis under the t-Virus' influence and grew to a size dozens of times its normal mature form with amazing speed. With this abnormal enlargement the exoskeleton encasing its whole body was strengthened gaining armor performance to the extent that it absorbed the damage of most bullets fired at it, and taking this individual as an example, its torso length reached three meters. However a gap between the "armor" was produced on its head compensating for its sudden rapid growth, exposing too much of a clear weak point for it to be deployed in actual combat as a B.O.W. In addition no substance harmful to humans was secreted by the tail needle's poison gland and it is unknown whether toxicity was considered when it was selected as a host for the administration experiment or if it was detoxified due to genetic information changes by the virus.

CENTURION (Page 076)

Like most insects administered the t-Virus this ferocious polymer also mutated to a gigantic size. Commonly a large centipede discovered in a torrid zone can reach about 30cm in length and feed on rats and lizards; this is considered a rare phenomenon that the food chain is in the opposite direction between insect and vertebrate. However the one discovered in the executive training center has a size of almost 10m long. The other surprising thing is there is no record about choosing a centipede as a test subject and this mutation wasn't controlled by adjusting the virus' amount, it is believed to be caused by sudden secondary infection. This is one of the worst examples where the t-Virus spreads to great extent in an environment, and of course, as the size is larger, to satiate its terrible appetite this creature's food naturally expanded to "humans."

INFECTED BAT (Page 078)

This "infected bat" is an example where the t-Virus caused a clear enlargement effect on a mammal, achieving growth to the point that the length of its open wings reaches a maximum of three meters. Its distorted form required abnormal skeletal development and its muscular strength was markedly enhanced to allow it to flap its wings, and as it is originally a creature with high flying ability, it's also able to hold a human and fly away. In addition it also has a troublesome habit of actively hunting in a group and if it discovers prey it will call its companions with a soundwave outside human audible range. Moreover as observed in this group, since the build differences are extreme this is the only individual that became gigantic and it's believed to be an irregular mutant species with high compatibility secondarily infected by the virus. Although blood-sucking species do not inhabit the North American continent, there is no doubt that the host became carnivorous.

PROTO TYRANT (Page 080)

Development of the Tyrant, successfully mass-produced following the "Mansion Incident" as a perfect model of a humanoid B.O.W., was advanced for an ultimate life form combining overwhelming combat efficiency and intelligence for executing commands---- Cancellation of training for the near-complete prototype was decided probably because the effect of the injected t-Virus was too strong with no cognitive development observed. Decomposition of the outer skin was remarkable, skin began to erode exposing part of the upper spine and even while appearing inferior in the points of body function and durability compared with the Tyrant put to practical use, even though it was disposed of it demonstrated unbelievable vitality and resumed activity. Due to the addition of a huge claw on its right arm akin to a jousting spear and signs of form transformation observed in its left hand, it's sumrised to be in a very unstable state similar to the out of control mode the subsequent mass-producted model evolves into when its limiter is removed (Super-class) after facing a threat to its life. It demonstrates brutality rather more suitable for the name of "tyrant" than the finished product.

QUEEN LEECH (Page 084)

After releasing the mimicry of young James Marcus, the Queen Leech turned into its original form. This creature is the queen at the top of all the mutated leeches, ten years after being infected by the t-Virus, the transfiguration ability of its body structure has reached an unthinkable level. This creature's intelligence is very high and it can use a certain method (a kind of olfactory message with microchemicals is highly possible) to control countless leeches as its soldiers. The thoughts and memories are from the murdered Dr. James Marcus and it's believed that this is a fusion phenomenon of the t-Virus after the Queen Leech entered his corpse. However rather than considering this as a humanoid life-form, given the leech's DNA another theory is more reasonable. Over many years the Queen Leech acquired the dead man's genetic information so it turned into an intelligent creature with James Marcus' personality. Since leeches are hermaphrodite the name of "Queen" as the ruler of this population is only for convenience.

SECRET FEATURE (Page 232-235)

THE PERSON CALLED JAMES MARCUS - Who is Dr. James Marcus?

The true father of the t-Virus

Friend of Umbrella founder Spencer, discoverer of the Progenitor Virus, first director of the executive training center... There are many words to describe Marcus, but a point deserving of attention is his development of the t-Virus, the foundation of later B.O.W. research. Howeve the deterioation of his relationship with Spencer darkened his fate. Did the trigger rely on the difference between a scientist emphasizing research and a man dreaming of success in business as Marcus himself talked about in his diary? Moreover it may be due to internal blame developing for the cruel method of using trainees as test subjects. Regardless of the reason, he was secretly murdered ten years ago at Spencer's order.

True Nature of the Handsome Young Man

The true nature of the mysterious handsome young man is James Marcus. He was betrayed by Birkin and Wesker whom he trusted and died taking the Queen Leech's t-Virus and revived... It is just as he himself says. Then it was he who began to seek Umbrella's destruction and by extension, the world, however his transfiguration in the final stage was clearly unexpected. Although he thought he achieved his own revival using the leech's ability, in reality his mind was copied by the leech, and even his self was swallowed by the Queen Leech.

GLOSSARY

UMBRELLA

A huge multinational corporation with a pharmaceutical konzern as the parent organization. Its headquarters was established in Europe and affiliates/branch offices were set in various places including Raccoon City. Although it widely advocates an image of a bright, healthy top-rated company "protecting the health of the people", its true nature is a merchant of death that develops and supplies biological weapons. As for those involved in its foundation, Oswell E. Spencer, Edward Ashford and James Marcus have been confirmed so far.

B.O.W.

Abbreviation for Bio Organic Weapon (biological weapon). Beings created by Umbrella due to injection experiments with the t-Virus, but in CODE:Veronica, they also appeared in the hands of Umbrella's opposing company.

t-VIRUS

A military virus developed by Umbrella based on a new virus, the "Progenitor Virus." "t" is the initial of "tyrant." Remarkable transformations to the body are caused within creatures infected by this and they acquire frightening durability, offensive ability and increased brutality. Many tragic incidents were caused by this virus leaking out including the "Mansion Incident." In addition there is what's called the "G-Virus", a new species of virus discovered by William Birkin during t-Virus injection experiments.

Flow and Full Picture of the Incident (Page 234)

The "Umbrella Executive Training Center" is a a facility set up to train suitable top-class personnel each with their own aspirations for the future of Umbrella. It was built in the backwoods of Raccoon Forest and had a laboratory just like the "mansion." At the personal request of Umbrella founder Lord Spencer his friend Dr. James Marcus was appointed the first director. He advocated the motto "Discipline, Obedience, Loyalty" consisting of three elements, and although it is a measure of each candidate, the training center was closed down twenty years ago and he himself disappeared ten years later. Reclamation of the laboratory began to be examined recently and an investigation aimed at the training center is now in progress.

How did the contamination occur?

By the time Rebecca visits the train and training center, which are these stages,they've already been contaminated by the t-Virus. This is the work of a mysterious handsome youth (= Marcus), but according to him the biohazard that occurred in the mansion, the stage in "BIOHAZARD 1", was the result of his plan. It was all one man, an Umbrella executive betrayed by Umbrella - it all began with Marcus' revenge.

According to a "BIOHAZARD 1" file, the t-Virus leaked in the mansion in the early dawn of May 11. This might've been the result of a cunningly devised plan of Marcus to make it seem accidental and personnel inside the mansion believed it to be pure accident.
