Further notes

El Gigante (lt. "The Giant" in Spanish) is the name of a group of human-based Bio Organic Weapons produced by Los Iluminados. They stand four times taller than the average human and have increased strength and durability. However, their intelligence and thus their ability to be controlled was greatly affected, resulting in their minimal production.[1][3][excerpt 1]

HistoryEdit

El Gigante were first produced from human test subjects during Los Iluminados experiments on the mutational effects of the Plagas on their hosts.[4] Though they proved to be exceptional as bio-weapons, they became difficult to control and were a danger to Ganados. Consequently, Los Iluminados produced only a small number of El Gigante,[1][3] spreading them around the region. Two were sent to the Salazar Castle, where they guarded the underground. Another two were sent to the village and stored within the coal mines the Ganados no longer had use for. These Gigante were released from their containment in 2004 when US agent Leon S. Kennedy proved too strong for the Ganados.[5][6] Ada Wong killed one of these village El Gigantes.[7]

  1. Excerpt from Kaitaishinsho, p.132: "寄生体の応用実験によって生まれた巨人。 プラーガを寄生させた人間に遺伝子操作を行ない巨大化させたもので、 体長は常人の4倍ほどもある。 その巨体は警異的なパワーを持つだけでなく耐久性にもすぐれ、 通常の銃弾など意にも介さない。 しかし、 デルラゴと同様、 制御が難しいという欠陥を改善できなかったため、 ごく少数が生み出されるにとどまった。"
