Shinsō (真相 (しんそう)?) is the thirty-second issue of the BIOHAZARD heavenly island manga series. It was republished as the fourth part of volume 4.


Takeru Tominaga feels immense guilty at Inez Diaco's death, having failed at his promise to Brown Anderson to protect everyone. The Shaman speaks to the group on a tannoy from a room above them. Claire Redfield realises the Shama is the one pulling the strings behind the incident, and ultimately responsible for Diaco's death. The Shaman explains their being on the island. He served for the "Kodoku Plan", a research experiment to create the superior creature. Its name is inspired by the Kudoku, a Japanese folk magic spell involving insects being placed in a jar and forced to fight to the death. The staff interpreted that literally, and created B.O.W.s that would fight each other until only the strongest is left. The mutant virus strain within the body of the survivor was then extracted, and an islander was infected with this virus to become the ultimate life form. This creature, dubbed Morio by Tominaga, was made to believe it must kill all strong people and to prevent escape, explaining its sabotage of the White Castle. The Shaman took on his appearance in order to experiment on the island natives, who would accept the virus if thinking it had folk magic qualities. The lab was abandoned by design, as Dr. Wesker's extreme views of the survival of the fittest were also applied to the research team, with the Shaman the sole remaining scientist. Finally, the Shaman reveals his true identity as Dirk Miller. As he takes his mask off, Claire Redfield recognises him as the man photographed with Dr. Wesker.
