How could this have happened, Barry? The town’s been overrun by zombies and has literally become a nightmare on Earth.
As you know, my concern for the town is as great as your own. I have waited for your arrival on the assumption you were still in the area, but the threat of my shop being overwhelmed by zombies has become too great.
I’ve already distributed the majority of weapons and ammo to the town’s survivors including the Raging Bull you special ordered. I hope you understand, given the circumstances.
At any rate, I have no intention of pointlessly sacrificing my life and will be retreating to Stone Ville.
If you get this message, meet me there. We’ll go fishing…
It all began as an ordinary day in September. An ordinary day in Raccoon City. A city controlled by Umbrella.
No one dared to oppose them. That and the lack of strength would ultimately lead to their destruction.
I suppose they had to suffer the consequences of their actions but there would be no forgiveness. If only they had had the courage to fight…
But it’s true that once the wheels of justice began to turn, nothing could stop them. Nothing.
It was Raccoon City’s last chance… And my last chance, my last escape…
July 24th, 1998
The following documents were obtained at a sanitarium owned by Umbrella Corp.:
“Umbrella Bio Organic Weapon Publicity Material”
Dev. Code: MA-39 Cerberus
Dev. Code: MA-121 Hunter
Dev. Code: Fi-3 Neptune
Dev. Code: T-002 Tyrant
In addition to the above, it is believed that several other B.O.W. were created by means of accidental infection.
During the course of the tests, it was discovered that the contagion is not limited to human beings, and may pose a hazardous risk to plant and animal lifeforms.
Effective means of controlling this contagion have yet to be found.

As I write this, my hands shake with anger and fear. The civilians of this town have been blockaded by the military. And though I sigh for the survivors of the town, I still
feel that it’s the best decision. They cannot take the chance of the disease spreading any further.
I am going to make it my top priority to discover what has caused this incredibly dangerous incident. So far, I have only found out that the disease is not airborne.
Orders for Special Agent Hunk are as follows:
Penetrate Umbrella research facility located outside of Raccoon city.
Recover G-virus sample from Dr. William Birkin.
You are authorized to use any means necessary to secure this sample.
Upon recovery, sample is to be delivered to Loire Village.
Failure on this mission is not an option.

Following six months of intensive training, my body’s edge had returned.
I was a good soldier, but they ordered my execution with no reason given. I was tortured and forced to give a false confession.
But on the morning of my execution, a miracle happened. The company had helped me out, giving me a second lease on life.
I ended my vacation short and returned to the HQ office. It looks like my UBCS unit’s been called into action.
Umbrella maintains its own paramilitary unit to counter corporate terrorism and V.I.P. abduction. In addition, they have nightmen who specialize in handling problems caused by
I’m currently a member of the latter.
Dawn’s here, but we’re still slogging through this nightmare. There are no provisions of any kind here. The undead walk the streets feeding upon the flesh of the living.
Given the choice again, I would rather have been executed.
Death row was a heavenly asylum compared to this place.
I’ve chosen to pull the trigger myself, in the hope that my dead body won’t come back to life.
It’s that monster in the black suit again! Why does that thing keep chasing me?! What did I do? This must be someone’s sick idea of a joke.
If I knew things were going to end up like this, I would have left the S.T.A.R.S. team a long time ago.
But whining won’t help me now. I know I’m finished…
Oh… In my hometown Delucia, I bet the flowers are in bloom.
If I could only see them once more before I die…

MA-121 PROGRESS REPORT
As a result of the scheduled product improvement plans for the MA120, productions of the latest multi Purpose B.O.W. MA121-Hunter has been completed.
Although the Hunter has demonstrated high performance exceeding expectations as a B.O.W., in the interest of producing improved products with higher levels of usability and enhanced power, Hunter-R and additional enhanced B.O.W.s are currently under development.
There should be no shortage of practical applications for current products under development.
I can’t help but wonder if anyone will read these words, but writing them will help me maintain my sanity if nothing else.
After I’ve become a meal for those undead monsters, will the G.I.s responsible for sealing off the town laugh upon discovering my corpse?
So is this how it’s supposed to end? I don’t want to die. I’m just not ready…
My wife, daughter, mother…
My entire family has been killed. But none of that matters anymore. Right now, my life is the only important thing.
That’s all that matters.
I never would have pictured my end to be like this. I had so much left to do. Rather than becoming a salesman, I should have tried my hand at being a novelist. It’s what I’ve always wanted, but my mother would only tell me you have a long way to go.
Why did I ever listen to her?
But this looks like the end for the great Dario Rosso, novelist extraordinare. Cut down before his prime…
Dear Dr. Birkin,
It has come to my attention that we are currently experiencing a shortage of APL-14. To counteract this problem I am asking you and several other labs to donate five cases of APL-14 to our facility immediately.
For your information, we have discovered, that our base in the South Pole is primarily responsible for this shortage.
We are currently taking steps to prevent this from happening in the future. And don’t worry, the Ashford’s reputation is now irreparably tarnished.
Your quick response is greatly appreciated.
RACCOON CITY PAMPHLET
City Guide No. 12
–A Brief Look–
Hello and welcome to Raccoon City! As you will notice, our city is a clean and private town dedicated to families. Raccoon City has partnered with our friends at Umbrella Inc., in order to generate unprecedented growth and stability. Umbrella Inc. is a highly regarded and well funded corporation that cares about its employees. They have helped to create many public facilities to make this city a better place for everyone.
As we look to the future, I will continue to support Umbrella Inc. in terms of new business developments.
Please enjoy your stay in my lovely city. Thank you.
Raccoon City Mayor
My sanity is at its end… I still can’t believe this is happening. We lost another man yesterday. Meyer; one of our better marksmen. He saw me panic once we were overrun by the zombies but he came back to save me.
But when the time came to return the debt, I ran.
I can still hear him calling out my name. I can still hear the screams coming from behind. The sound of his flesh being stripped from its bones. I was afraid… terrified…
It’s the 27th. The fight to stay alive continues. I took out several zombies who managed to break through the barricades. Now I’m cutting through the chill with whisky, unloading my
Mossberg on anything undead. That shotgun’s become a close friend of mine. I’ve blasted many a zombie into fertilizer with it.
We’ve lost 12 men as of yesterday. In 3 hours, we’ll bicker about trivial things in the meeting room. It’s a total waste of time. When I finish this bottle, my old friend Mossberg will be turning one last body into fertilizer.
Peace at last.
I can hardly wait…
On July 23rd, an MP vehicle was found inside the Arklay Mountains. Corpses of MP members and an unidentified body were found near the vehicle.
According to the information from military authorities, the unidentified body was identified as former ensign Billy Koen, who was sentenced the death penalty following a court-martial on July 22nd. While Koen was on transfer via Navy MP escort, they must have experienced some kind of accident.
The corpses were severely mauled, apparently torn apart by unidentified wild animals.
The following day we returned to the location to recover the bodies but they were nowhere to be found.
Military authorities have requested that we turn over Koen’s body as proof of his death. But due to the circumstances described above, it will be a difficult task to recover the corpse.
I am requesting that this case be temporarily closed until further notice.

Below is my account of what led up to the explosion of the mansion:
On July 23rd, S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team, led by Captain Marini, went to investigate the bizarre homicides that occurred in the Arklay Mountains. After contact with team’s chopper was lost, S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team, lead by Captain Wesker went in.
We found the remains of Bravo team’s helicopter on the ground. After landing we were immediately attacked by bloodthirsty dogs. We later discovered that these dogs were
actually zombie dogs as they did not even feel our gunfire. After Joseph Frost was killed, we were forced to retreat to a nearby mansion.
After further investigating the mansion, we learned that it was actually a secret laboratory of Umbrella Inc..
All researchers were turned into zombies by some type of unknown virus. We also discovered that Umbrella was using that lab as a testing area for new Bio Organic Weapons.
We found the dead bodies of some of the Bravo team members including Enrico Marini, Kenneth Sullivan, Forest Speyer, and Richard Aiken. We believe that those Bio Organic Weapons caused their deaths.
After that we discovered that Captain Wesker was actually working with Umbrella and that both Alpha and Bravo teams were being used as live test subjects for the Bio Organic Weapons. Wesker had betrayed us!
We barely managed to survive that nightmare. However, since the mansion exploded, there is no evidence to support our claims of Umbrella’s secret lab or the Bio Organic Weapons.
The zombie phenomenon that has been occurring in the city is extremely similar to the zombies we saw at the mansion. We suspect that Umbrella is somehow linked to all this.
In order to solve this mystery and put an end to the zombies that are roaming the city, I propose we launch a formal investigation into Umbrella.
Thank you for your attention to this extremely important matter.

MOTHER VIRUS REPORT
The Mother Virus was first discovered by Ozwell E. Spencer.
And it was him, who founded Umbrella Inc.. As time passed, Spencer’s research was succeeded to Dr. J. Marcus. However, Dr. Marcus abused his power and had to be fired.
Following Dr. Marcus came Dr. William Birkin. Dr. Birkin’s experiments delivered many outstanding results including the T-virus. It is presumed that that he will be finishing work on the more powerful G-virus in the near future.
Currently, research on the Mother Virus takes place at our laboratories all over the world. In the near future, we hope to discover many new viruses.
