Part 1
When I first visited that place, I was 18 and it was summer. Twenty years ago. I still remember the smell when the helicopter landed and the rotar caused the wind to stir. From the air, the mansion seemed normal but from ground level, something was different. Birkin, who was 2 years younger than I, seemed only interested in the research files he had as usual........

1978 July 31(Monday)
Two days ago, the two of us were assigned to that place. Everything could have been planned out from the beginning or it could have all been a coincidence.
The only person to know the truth is most likely, Spencer. Spencer at that time was using the Arklay labs for the research on the t-virus.

As soon as we got off the helicopter, the president of the lab stood in front of the elevator. I don't remember the guy's name. It didn't matter what was said officially, from that day on that lab was ours. We were assigned to be chief researchers at the facility. This of course, was Spencer's will. We were the chosen ones.

The two of us ignored the president as we entered the elevator. We had already been briefed about the layout of the area as well as Birkin's, and with no bad intentions we ignored everyone as usual.

Usually, when someone sees our actions, they would react quickly. But the president didn't react at all.

At the time, I was only a youngster so it didn't bother the president. The president understood what Spencer was thinking and didn't take notice of someone like me.

While the three of us were on the elevator, Birkin kept his eyes on the research files. The files contained information about a new firo-virus found 2 years ago in Africa called Ebora. Even now there are thousands of people researching the Ebora. But the people are always divided in half -- one group dedicated to saving people from the virus, and the other to kill people with it.

It is known if a person is infected with the Ebora, that the chance of dying is 90%. It has the quality to destroy the physical structure within 10 days and even now, a cure hasn't been found. If used as a bio-weapon it would display incredible destruction.

But because making a bio-weapon is against the law we would not use the virus as a weapon. But I'm certain that someone out there would use this as a weapon. So to prepare for a case of that nature it is good to do research on it now. But the line between finding a cure and making a bio-weapon is thin. This is because the actual research conducted do not differ at all between the two. So one could say that they are reseaching for a cure and be making a bio-weapon.

But Birkin was not interested in either cause. He just wanted to research the Ebora itself. There was little known about the virus at the time. They did not know that the virus would die within a few days by itself, and would die instantly when hit by sunlight. They were also unaware of the speed that it would kill its host. It kills the host so quickly that there is virtually no time for the virus to infect another person. The virus has to physically touch another person in order to infect them and therefore can easily be quarantined. But that brings me to the following thought...
What if a person that was infected with the Ebora virus could stand up and walk around? That infected person would have a disrupted chain of thought, and what if they could infect others that weren't infected? What if the DNA of the Ebora and the RNA had a direct impact on the DNA of a human? Due to those factors, would the person be harder to kill?

The person would be dead from a human's point of view, but would still act as a bio-weapon spreading the virus.

It is forunate that the Ebora had features like this. We would be the only ones to possess this knowledge.

Umbrella, with Spencer as the head was a organization created to do research on viruses with these qualities. As a cover they tell the world that they are a company researching cures for these viruses. But the truth was that they are a bio-weapon development organization.

The finding of the original virus which restructures the human DNA was the start of everything. Using the original virus as a base, an enhanced virus would be made to be a bio-weapon. This was the T-virus plan.

The original virus was an RNA virus and would cause abnormalities that would enhance a person. Birkin planned on combining the two viruses to make an enhanced virus. The sample of the Ebora had already been brought to this reserach facility.

We had gone through many elevators and had finally reached the destination. Upon entering, even Birkin was impressed by the sight. This was our first encounter with that woman.

We were not told anything about that woman. Everything relating to her was kept top secret and the data was not to be leaked to the outside. Information obtained from records showed that she had been here since this lab was created.

She was 25 years old at that time. But what her name is and why she is here is a mystery. She was a test subject for the research on the T-virus. The research began on November 10, 1967.

For 11 years, she had gone through the tests with many viruses.

I heard Birkin whisper something. Whether those words were cursing/swearing or praising I do not know. We had come to a place we could never leave.

We didn't know whether we were to take the research to it's completion or if we would end up like her. For us we, only had one choice. The woman who lied on the pipebed had moved something within both of our minds. Is this also a part of Spencer's plan?
