Derek Simmons utilizó innumerables sujetos en experimento para intentar clonar a Ada Wong. Encontrar a personas con estructura genética compatible era lo más complicado, pero a través de los extensos recursos de la Familia, Derek se enteró de que una de sus investigadoras, Carla Radames, sería una candidata apropiada. Carla creía ciegamente que Derek la valoraba por su trabajo y que nunca se arriesgaría a perderla. Pero se equivocaba, Derek la utilizó y logró crear con éxito el clon de Ada que tanto deseaba.
Aunque Carla se parecía a Ada y hasta se comportaba como ella, una parte de su auténtica personalidad permaneció en su interior. Derek solo había tenido una relación profesional con la verdadera Ada, y por ello no se percató de que su clon no era exactamente como él esperaba. Su ofuscación le hizo descartar cualquier sospecha y empezó a entrenar y a tratar a Carla como si fuese la Ada Wong original. A su vez, Carla, que había perdido casi por completo toda su personalidad en el experimento, hacía todo lo que Derek quería. Sin embargo, en el fondo de su ser se guardaba una chispa de la huésped primigenia que acabó emergiendo a la superficie. Entonces, Carla se juró a si misma que destruiría a Derek, el hombre que había arruinado su vida.
Derek Simmons used countless test subjects in his efforts to "clone" Ada Wong. The main impediment to those efforts was finding subjects with compatible genetic structure.
Using the extensive resources of The Family, Derek learned that one of his own researchers, a Carla Radames, would be a suitable candidate. Derek tricked Carla into taking part in the experiment because she believed Derek valued her and her work too much to risk her. She was wrong, and Derek succeeded in creating the clone of Ada he had desired.
While Carla looked and behaved similar to Ada, there was still a piece of her that remained Carla. Derek's relationship with Ada had only been professional, so he couldn't see that this clone was not the real Ada. Whether through misguided affections or a desire to revenge himself on Ada, he ignored any nagging doubt and began to train and treat Carla as if she were the real Ada Wong.
Carla, having lost most of her personality during the experiment, behaved as Derek wanted. But in the depths of her soul, there was still a spark of Carla's original self, and once it came to the surface, she vowed to destroy Derek, the man who had ruined her life.
Below is a note written by Carla just after she was transformed into Ada Wong.
I am Simmons' loyal servant, Ada Wong. I will do anything he asks, and in return, he does whatever I ask. We are the perfect match and no one can come between us.
But recently, I can't help but feel some horrible emotion deep down every time I look into his eyes. I don't understand how I could feel this way when we are meant to be together. Some voice is screaming, "Kill him! Destroy his dreams! Don't let him get away with this," and it gets louder every day, but why? What's wrong with me? He loves me so much and I love him back. There's no reason for me to feel any of this. I can't imagine a world without him.
I've given everything to him. I would never want to destroy his dreams. Ever.
