Chris cayó en una trampa organizada por Ada Wong y los miembros de su equipo se transformaron en B.O.W.s después de que Ada les administrase el virus C. Ada es la líder de Neo-Umbrella y la persona que transportó el virus C que habían desarrollado sus investigadores en China hasta que la guerra civil de Edonia, donde entregó en secreto el virus a los insurgentes para que lo suministrasen a los mercenarios. Entonces, esos soldados mutaron y se convirtieron en criaturas conocidas como J'avo, hecho que Ada aprovechó para reunir información sobre las transformaciones.
Chris pasó la mayor parte de su vida luchando contra la farmacéutica Umbrella, y eso casi le costó la vida en varias ocasiones. No es difícil imaginar qué pasó por la cabeza de Chris la primera vez que escuchó el nombre Neo-Umbrella. Por qué Ada llamó así a su organización es algo que solo ella sabe.
In Edonia, Chris and his BSAA team fell into a trap set by Ada Wong. She used the C-Virus to turn his team into B.O.W.s.
As the leader of Neo-Umbrella, Ada brought the C-Virus that had been developed in China to the civil war in Edonia, where she secretly gave it to the insurgents to administer to its mercenary fighters. The mercenaries then mutated into creatures known as J'avo, and she gathered the data on their transformations.
Chris has spent most of his life fighting the pharmaceutical company Umbrella, almost losing it on numerous occasions. It's not hard to imagine what he thought when he first heard the name Neo-Umbrella. Why Ada named her organization such is a question only she can answer.
Alpha team was almost completely annihilated after coming into contact with Neo-Umbrella and Ada. However, there was still no actual proof of Neo-Umbrella's existence at the time. The woman who called herself Ada could even have been lying as far as the BSAA knew, so they were careful not to jump to any conclusions.
Ultimately, Neo-Umbrella officially made its voice heard when the new virus hit China, and Ada Wong was confirmed as its leader. Below is a note written by Marco Rose of BSAA North America before being sent off to China to counter the new organization and its attacks.
Gonna be sent out to China today since they got hit with some new virus. I'll be leading Bravo team. Heard that Alpha team found Chris, so I guess he'll be leading them. Will be good to see him.
I can't believe those assholes behind the attacks are calling themselves "Neo-Umbrella." I guess they really think they're hot shit for using that name. Can't wait to get a hold of Ada and make her beg forgiveness in front of the whole world.
