The Progenitor virus (also known as the Clay virus) was a unique mutagenic retrovirus, a type of RNA virus discovered from a rare flower in West Africa. It possessed the ability to parasitize a host at a cellular level and mutate DNA and recombine genes, thereby strengthening a host's characteristics but causing detrimental mutations when cells developed abnormally. It was unknown to most of human civilization until its discovery by the founders of the Umbrella Corporation, who kept its existence top-secret and applied it to "B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapons)" development, living biological weapons for military application.
