Ozwell E. Spencer, James Marcus and Edward Ashford realise the potential of the Mother virus. As a result Spencer moves forwards his plans for a pharmaceutical company.
The Progenitor Virus is administered throughout Jessica and Lisa Trevor. Jessica reads a negative result yet Lisa shows some promise – and Umbrella continue to research on her.
Architect George Trevor arrives at the Spencer Mansion, he notes his experiences:
After having finished my work and leaving New York, I finally arrived at the Mansion around 6.00pm. The hall is very spacious. The central stairs leading to the second floor are also impressive. All these things make me feel nostalgic all over again. Designing the plans for this place is the work I’m proudest of.
From the day I first showed the model to Ozwell E. Spencer in his office, until the completion of the mansion, took me 5 years. Spencer’s orders were really difficult and I had to call upon all of my energy and ingenuity to realise his ideas. At first sight no one would suspect anything to be out of the ordinary.
Lord Spencer shook his white hair from his shoulders and turned to me. He has an impressive stature, and at the first glance, one can feel that he has a high level of self-confidence. He initially announced to me that my wife Jessica and my daughter returned to visit their Aunt Emma who is ill, and then we lifted our glasses and toasted. We are only ones who know about the numerous secrets contained within this mansion. Deeply satisfied with this knowledge, we tasted the wine.
The dining room is amazing. There is an incredible variety of food laid out lavishly on a large mahogany table. When someone raised their eyes, they would see a statue of a goddess, in “Rodin” style, on the second floor, which seems to observe us with desire. But despite all this splendor, the banquet can only be enjoyed by two guests (Spencer and I). We only hear the quiet ticking of the clock hands. Ah, if only Jessica and Lisa were here.
According to Spencer, they arrived three days before me and greatly appreciated the beauty of the mansion. Lisa in particular benefited from the Spencer’s kindness and was able to use the piano among others. She reportedly played the “Moonlight Sonata” of Beethoven (her specialty). In the evening of the full moon, the melody seemed to surpass the celestial body floating above the forest that surrounds the house. Spencer had congratulated my wife for this superb view. I imagine proudly that their two faces must have been glowing with pride.
Jessica Trevor – the mother of Lisa and husband to George, writes a letter in the blind hope that Lisa will one day read it:
To my Lisa,
Day by day I can feel my consciousness drifting further away.
The shots given to me by the men in white clothes made some of Mommy’s itching go away. Today they gave me another shot saying it was “nutrition”. When they give me the shots Mommy can think straight, but Mommy’s shocked and sad because Mommy is unable to think of you all the time.
Mommy’s afraid. Afraid of forgetting everything, especially the memories of you and Daddy. What your faces look like, how we used to be together They’re all starting to disappear into somewhere dark in my mind.
Oh Lisa, I wish I could touch your face and hold you in my arms right now, so that I can hold on to the wonderful memories of you and Daddy.
Lisa, we can’t stay here any longer. We have to escape! Listen to me, Lisa. Our chance to escape is the next time when we go to that lab together. We’ll both pretend that we are unconscious, and when that man in white clothes is off guard that will be our chance. When we’re on the outside, let’s look for Daddy together. Okay sweetie?
Be strong, Lisa.
Nov. 13, 1967
Lisa Trevor writes in her diary:
I feel dizzy after that shot they gave me. I don’t see Mom. Where did they take her?
She promised that we would escape together. Did she escape alone and leave me behind?
Spencer offers George Trevor a guided tour around the mansion; he discusses his artwork collection as well as his plans for Umbrella. Trevor writes:
Lord Spencer guided me around the mansion. He opened the doors of several rooms. Those rooms are decorated with the most marvellous at pieces: paintings by De Vinci, sculptures by Raphael…
In one of the rooms the eye of a stuffed beast was strangely sparkling, and in another room suits of armour of Middle Age knights were aligned in good order close to their captain. All these art pieces were collected by Lord Spencer during past years and he must truly be one of the richest men on earth. “Do you like it? I wish to use this residence as a seaside resort, for a new company. I feel that this mansion could be used not only by employees, but by guests as well.” His plan is to create an international pharmaceutical company. He told me that this company would be called “Umbrella”. But I wonder why he hid this many things in his residence. He can say that he wants to make a seaside resort but it’s exaggerated. Even in the case his actions had been led by his passion.
Lisa – now in a deranged state writes:
I found Mom. We ate together. I was very happy.
But she was a fake. Not my real Mom. Same face but different inside.
Have to find Mom. Have to give face back to mother.
I got Mom’s face back.
Nobody can have my Mom except me. I attach her face to me so she doesn’t go away.
Because Mom sad when I meet her without her face.
Lisa Trevor now beyond help from her ‘treatment’ writes:
from inside box, scent of mommy. maybe true mother there. stone box hard. It hurt. steel rope in the way. can’t see mother becuz 4 stones.
George Trevor, unsettled by the disappearance of his wife and daughter looks around the Spencer estate, and in the courtyard notices ‘additions’ to his work:
My family hasn’t come back yet. “Is aunt Emma that sick?” I doubt it. The telephone is not installed, which is not very convenient. I went out to second floor terrace to clear my mind. Crows perched on a rail looked at me and made strange croaking sounds.
I had an ominous feeling.
I constantly have the strange feeling of being watched…
I saw an astonishing thing in a small court. There is a ladder leading down into an underground passage, which is masked by a waterfall. “It is not my work. When was this thing built then?”
Lisa Trevor now totally deranged, attempts to write:
dadddy atached first momm atached scond
iNside reD and sLimy whiTe and haRd
not true moM wheRe
dunno dadd found mum again
whne atachd mommy she moved no more she screaming
why? Jst want to b with her
(The rest is what she writes – for there is no actual date- ~Ty^)
I mis yuo
George Trevor walks around the mansion further, and notices the shotgun given to Spencer by his wife for his birthday is also missing:
There is no trace of the shotgun my wife had given Spencer for his birthday. I’m smoking a cigarette in the room where a broken shotgun can be found and feel that it can fool people and pass for the original. I wonder who exchanged Spencer’s shotgun for this unusable shotgun and why?
Neither my wife nor my daughter have reappeared and I getting very concerned. My rich employer informed me that my family and I couldn’t remain at the mansion any longer and when I suggested that I could join them tomorrow, he laughed and said that it was pointless in worrying myself like that.
George Trevor worries something is wrong at the Spencer Mansion.
Eleven days have past since arriving on this estate. How did I end up like this? A guy in a lab coat came with a plate of skimpy meal and said to me, “Sorry to put you through this, but it’s for security reasons.” That’s when it hit me. It all makes sense now.
There are only two people that know the secret of this mansion, Sir Spencer and myself. If they kill me, Sir Spencer will be the only person that knows the secret.
But for what purpose? It doesn’t matter now. It’s too dangerous here. My family… I hope they are all right.
I’ve decided to escape… Jessica, Lisa, I pray you are safe.
George Trevor gets increasingly worried about events at the Mansion.
How could I be so careless? I lost my favorite lighter — the one Jessica gave me for my birthday. Now it’s going to be that much harder to get out this dark place.
Nov. 13th, the date when my fate was sealed. My aunt was hospitalized just three days before that. Jessica and Lisa said that they were going to visit her. I wish I could be there with them.
But wait, even as I’m writing my memory is coming back to me more vividly.
Just before I passed out, I remember the men in the lab coats said something like, “Most likely your family is already…” I pray for their safety.
George Trevor writes further:
Somehow I managed to get out that room. But getting out of this mansion won’t be as easy. I have to get past all the booby-traps. Tiger eyes, Gold Emblem… I have to try and remember for my own sake.
George Trevor, trapped in the Spencer Mansion, describes his escape:
I can’t get out. I have tried every possible way to escape but only to be faced with the reality that I’m trapped.
I’ve been everywhere. The laboratory with the large glass tubes filled with formaldehyde and those dark, wet and eerie caves… What can I do?
At first I didn’t want to believe my eyes. But that familiar high-heeled shoe in the corridor… It was like reflex. One name came to my mind, Jessica!
I don’t want to believe they share the same fate as me. No! I can’t give up hope. I have to hope they’re alive.
George Trevor describes further events:
I haven’t had anything to eat or drink for the past few days. I feel like I’m going crazy.
Why is this happening to me? Why do I have to die like this? I was too obsessed with designing this ghastly mansion. I should have known better.
Marcus battles Spencer :
Damn that Spencer! He came to complain to me again today. He thinks of “Progenitor” as noting more than a money-spinning tool. Fool! But his influence continues to grow; it can only be bad for my research. If I’m to properly develop “Progenitor”, I must strengthen my own position, too.
(George Trevor evidently, through hunger went a little crazy and writes this entry as November 31st ~Ty^)
It was a dark and damp underground tunnel. And another dead end. But even in the darkness something caught my eye.
Carefully, I lit the last match, I had to see what it was.
A grave! But deeply engraved into the stone was my name!
At that instant, it all became clear to me. Those bastards knew from the beginning that I’d die here and I fell right into their trap.
But it’s too late now. I’m losing it. Everything is becoming so far away.
Jessica… Lisa… Forgive me.
Because of my ego, I got both of you involved in this whole damn conspiracy.
Forgive me. May god justify my death in exchange for your safety.

James Marcus decides to run the Umbrella training facility within the Arklay Mountains, a facility used to train future employees:
Spencer keeps asking me to be the director of his new training facility. Maybe it is because of the business but he is becoming intolerably pushy. But maybe I can turn this to my advantage. I need a special facility to properly to explore all this virus’ secrets. A place where no one will get in the way…
