The genesis of Resident Evil

Resident Evil 3

This begins before RE 2, but finishes after. It follows Jill Valentine escaping Raccoon City during the T-Virus outbreak. She encounters the Biohazard Countermeasure Service, Umbrella's private army sent to counter the outbreak, and the Nemesis - a new mutant sent to kill members of S.T.A.R.S. With help of UBCS soldier Carlos Oliveira, Jill defeats the Nemesis and escapes the city before the government levels it with a nuclear strike.

Links in the chain

The Nemesis parasite extracted from Lisa Trevor was spliced by Umbrella's Paris lab with four Tyrants to produce the Nemesis: a bio-weapon capable of carrying out orders and using weapons.

Barry also showed up to rescue Jill Valentine at the end of Resident Evil 3, just before the nuclear strike hits Raccoon City - but he has since moved his family to Canada in order to be safe.

    I knew what happened in 0 and 1 because I read the books, which I liked. RE rocks! And what is with the first thing anyway!?!

    great article. Now you should do a favor to the humanity and write the genesis of metal gear and metal gear solid because not even the Metal gear solid database helped me to understand such entangled story. And I won't say "first" EVEN HAVING THE OPORTUNITY because I consider it to be a waste of time.

    I thought I was fairly in the know about the RE series geuss not. Grat article needed to be done... so that RE 5 can come along and screw it up. ( see great story gone horribly wrong: indigo prophecy, metal gear solid 2, etc.)
