The original Neptune Project test subjects were created with the α strain.

α was an early strain of the t-Virus that was designed by the research staff at the Arklay Laboratory.

History[]

Umbrella's t-Virus Project initially aimed to create a viral weapon that would infect and kill an entire population. However, when this approach proved ecologically unsustainable, the focus shifted to mutating organisms to serve as weapons that would kill survivors instead. The project's initial phase involved infecting animals and observing them for any beneficial properties. Among the initial projects was Neptune, which aimed to create an enhanced aquatic bio-weapon. The great white shark test subjects experienced only minor mutations and an increase in aggression. Another early B.O.W. test, Web Spinner, yielded better results in creating a 90-pound (41-kg) spider capable of running at 24 miles per hour (39 km/h). However, the lack of an increase in intelligence rendered it useless as a weapon.

Despite their limited success, the Arklay team continued their research and produced the β strain.
