The Federation of Pharmaceutical Companies[1][note 1] is a council of pharmaceutical corporations throughout the globe. Notable members and/or former members included the pharmaceutical arm of TRICELL, Inc. and Umbrella.

History[]

The council existed for some time before the 1998 Raccoon City Destruction Incident where they unwittingly aided Umbrella in the development of bio-weapons: it was found out during the Raccoon Trials that Umbrella developed their weaponry with the use of fellow pharmaceutical companies under the guise of the co-development of medicines. Facing the possibility of a ban from trading and bankruptcy, the council members were allowed to remain in business thanks to a deal with the prosecutors: if they supplied the court with evidence implicating Umbrella with wrongdoing, their own misdeeds would be overlooked.[2]

Umbrella was found guilty in 2003[3] with its last remaining facilities collapsing in 2004.[4] Unfortunately, Umbrella's collapse during the trials led to the company desperately selling bio-weapons to terrorists and guerrila fighters. To recover their lost image, the council founded the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, an elite team sent out to fight in anti-bioterrorist operations.

During the 2009 Kijuju incident, it was found out by the BSAA that TRICELL, Inc., a member of the council's board was also a producer of Bio Organic Weapons. What these events had on the council afterwards is unknown.
