(Capcom's primary storyline)

Mother Gracia Delenikas (1980-2012) was the head of the Marhawa School, a religious institute in Singapore. She formerly had a relationship with Professor Doug Wright.[3]


Early life

Early in her life, as a kid, Gracia wasn't the favored one by her uncle, despite his wealth, all of his children were studying abroad and Gracia was the one always left behind. Gracia took up to her father figure as a kid and after her father rescued two kids; Tahir Kapoor and Ray Hsu, she decided to take responsibility and considered them as her own siblings, despite her young age.

Some point later at her life, she had been in a relationship with Doug Wright but broke up with him later on for unknown reasons.[citation needed]

After her uncle's death[citation needed] His wish was to appoint her as the headmaster of the Marhawa School, which he had owned previously, as a result she had to take responsibility duties and favored this place over everything and as her own; just like her uncle. She decided to live up to his wish and became Mother Gracia.

Headmaster of the Marhawa School

As the headmaster of the isolationist academy, Mother Gracia seems to be very strict about inviting outsiders, most likely due to her beliefs that outsiders aren't trustworthy.

After the fight that ensued between Alisa Lin and Nanan Yoshihara, Bindi Bergara went to her office to report the incident. Bindi intended to report the incident to the police. to which Mother Gracia disagreed. Mother Gracia chose to keep the fight as a secret, and as such, no reports were allowed to be made to the police.

Bindi, unsatisfied with Gracia's decision, took Nanan and left the Marhawa School secretly. However Gracia knew of this plan, and brought with her the academy's security guards to chase after the escaping students.

After the accident that took Nanan's life away, she continued to look after her students, until the day when the mutated Nanan came into the academy and infected nearly all students with the airborne C-Virus, one by one.

Mother Gracia invited a close acquaintance of hers, Professor Doug Wright, along with his comrades and his nephew Ricky Tozawa. She expected Doug and his comrades to be able to solve the outbreak by themselves, but Doug insisted that Gracia immediately informed the BSAA that a bioterror attack had occurred in Marhawa. Gracia refused, however, due to her isolationist view and went on to cover up the incident. After her refusal, she burned down a dormitory containing the zombified Alisa and Ra-Na in an attempt to hide their deaths, stating that the dorm was scheduled for demolition anyway. When Ricky and Ray become convinced even more that the situation is growing out of control, she proceeds to destroy their vehicle, their only means of escape but still has them solve the growing issues, and gives them guns to use. When two students are zombified during a school festival, and Bindi attempts to call out Gracia's views, she immediately retorts that Bindi was the cause of the mess. In private, she confides with Ricky, Tahir and Doug and opens up about the incident with Bindi and Nanan. Taking them to site where Nanan died, Doug offers her the chance to change after the incidents, which finally caused her to change her views. By that point, it was too late, as Ricky Tahir and Doug confronted Bindi and Nanan which resulted in Tahir's death and Doug being severely wounded. After which, Bindi had Nanan infect the students, causing the entire academy to become zombified.

Mother Gracia herself was murdered at the hands of the mutated Bindi Bergara, who scorned her in her last moments, gloating on how she hated Gracia. She succumbs to her wounds in front of Ricky and Quan, dying with Doug's image in her mind. Before her death, however, she left a letter to Doug, apologizing for her actions and her happiness at the opportunity to start over should they escape. She also states the presence of an emergency chopper in the hidden basement of the academy, which Ricky and Chris later use to escape the academy.
