Derek C. Simmons tiene 46 años y es el asesor del presidente de los Estados Unidos. Es perfeccionista y perseverante, cualidades imprescindibles para llegar lejos en la escala del poder del gobierno. Actualmente es la cabeza de la Familia, una fraternidad secreta compuesta por personajes influyentes que ha manipulado el desarrollo del mundo occidental durante siglos. Esta organización hará lo que sea necesario para asegurar la estabilidad y el orden mundial.
Simmons tenía que el plan del presidente Benford, revelar toda la verdad sobre el incidente de Raccoon City, provocase el caos y por ello ideó un ataque bioterrorista en el que el presidente acabó siendo una víctima más.
Derek C. Simmons, 46 years old, is an aide to the president of the United States. He is a ruthless perfectionist, a personality well disposed to rising to a high echelon of power in government.
He is the current head of The Family, a secret fraternity of powerful movers and shakers that have manipulated the development of the Western world for centuries. This organization will do whatever is necessary to ensure stability and world order.
Fearing the ensuing chaos that would result from President Benford's plan to reveal the truth about the Raccoon City Incident, Mr. Simmons orchestrates his own bioterror attack where the president would be but one of the many casualties.
Below is a memo written by Simmons before the attack.
I've warned Adam time and time again not to go public with the details on the Raccoon City Incident, and even used The Family to put more pressure on him, but he still will not listen. He doesn't realize just how big of a mistake he is making. His biggest mistake, though, was hiring me on as his right-hand man, not knowing that I was the head of The Family. If only he knew how closely I've been watching his every move.
Now he has made an enemy of The Family and there is no turning back. It's time I use my position to make sure balance is kept in this world.
