Hofuri no kaori ( (ほふ)りの (かお)?) is the forty-second issue of the BIOHAZARD heavenly island manga series. It was re-published in the fifth tankōbon volume.


The survivors have been captured by Sheng-Ya mercenaries, who are surprised there really were uninfected survivors. Claire Redfield offers to negotiate their survival and passage in exchange for information on Zi Li. The team leader is unwilling to negotiate with Redfield, either out of general refusal or belief her injury is an infection. Takeru Tominaga starts fighting with one mercenary as Yuki Mayu and Marilou Mabou are taken away to be interrogated instead. They do not shoot him for this infraction, as they are quickly distracted by the approach of a new mutant, Zi Li, who claims the right to kill the survivors. Zi Li begins jumping in the air to keep out of the mercenaries' vision, succeeding in severing one mercenary into chunks while he looks the wrong direction. A mercenary armed with a Debrainer is killed soon after. With the unit on the beach reduced to two, they call in the three reserve mercenaries from the boat, leaving it open for the civilians to escape.
