Dr. Beardsley, 16th Earl Beardsley, was a Scandinavian aristocrat, virologist and eugenicist from Gadiwell island with ties to Dr. Oswell E. Spencer, The Earl Spencer. Though he was not one of the three recognised co-founders of Umbrella Pharmaceuticals, Dr. Beardsley was still heavily involved in the t-Virus Project contributing his family's accumulated genetic knowledge and land for the construction of a research facility on his island in exchange for Umbrella helping to improve the local infrastructure. Unfortunately this aid would incur further unforeseen costs as later during his reign there was an accidental release of the virus which killed many islanders and forced the Norwegian military to intervene to contain the outbreak. Umbrella and Beardsley were able to cover up the event though and following his death, his genetically engineered daughter Mylène, 17th Countess Beardsley, would go on to continue his work.[1]
