Bio I'm a Resident Evil collector specialising in Japanese books containing hard-to-find interviews and extra story notes not in the games. I'm also a fan of classic '80s horror franchises such as Friday the 13th and Halloween.

I noticed that Resident Evil: Village page is protected for admins only, but maybe would you add interwiki links to international wikis about the same topic there? I will not use my rights for that, but consider this please.
If you want to do that, here are articles you can connect to yours:
There are three images that should be renamed: Operation Raccoon City_award_-_Skill... Or Luck.png into Operation Raccoon City_award_-_Skill... Or Luck?.png, Operation Raccoon City_award_-_Who needs guns.png into Operation Raccoon City_award_-_Who needs guns?.png and Operation Raccoon City_award_-_Oh Yeah.png into Operation Raccoon City_award_-_Oh Yeah!!!.png
Hey man, how are you? I was doing some research for my script, and some of the most interesting things I found, were the original concept arts for Resident Evil in the "True Story Behind Biohazard" book, but the problem is that they're so hard to find in a high quality on the internet, and then I saw that you uploaded two concept arts from that book in a very good quality on the wiki, so I was really hoping that you could help me by sending me with the rest of these concept arts to illustrate my project, if you have the means to do it, thank you.
Hey Forerunner, remember when I told you about my old 2002 Gamecube official strategy guide with the STARS biography? Well, I finally found it in my old bookshelf in storage. I'm not sure if its cannon but I will give you the details. These are the extra details you asked about with the makers of the magazine...
its from "Brady Games
it's by Dan Birlew
it has the Capcom trademark
This is exactly what it says about Joseph Frost's biography...
"Frosty" is a seasoned former commando trained in the Navy SEALS and experienced in Gulf War operation Desert Storm. Recently promoted from the Bravo Team, he acts as the vehicle specialist of the unit. "Frosty" prides himself in assuming the dangerous point position during field operations, and his tactical swiftness and brilliance make him the perfect officer on the frontlines".
This magazine is almost 20 years old (my God has it been that long??). I got it when the remake was brand new. I'm not sure if that extra info helps, but I figured you would be interested in looking into it
That sounds about what I was expecting. Dan Birlew is a fan who ended up going into professional guidebook writing. His lore notes deviate from Capcom's, either being him adding in non-canon material from the Perry novels of some comics (RE0's timeline including Perrylore like STARS being a national organisation), or him adding in fanfic to add flavour (CV's story for Nikolai).
That makes sense. I guess fan fiction can even end up in strategy guides every now and then. By the way, I've noticed someone wrote that Marcus's original student/test subjects were still roaming around the Management Training facility somewhere after Marcus was assassinated (I will have to re-read the section to pinpoint exactly where I read that). Anyway, is that canon? I would think that a zombie would starve or rot away at some point between 1978 to 1998. I think I read somewhere that the naked cadaver zombies in the Water Treatment Plant were Marcus's original test subjects. I was always under the impression that they were recent bodies being disposed of from NEST. And why were there Hunters in the Management Training facility? Did the 1st Investigation unit have the USS boys transport the Hunters to the facility for storage...?
The school was abandoned in the ten years before Marcus' assassination, though the kaitaishinsho (a Famitsu guide - they're usually the more accurate guides since Capcom has a special deal with Famitsu to give them story notes and concept art) identifies certain zombies as students ("executive candidates"). If that's the case, they would have been comatose for 20 years, perhaps to preserve energy.
Naked Zombies only appear in the factory and treatment plant, so it's possible they were NEST's test-subjects instead.
No explanation given in-game why there's Hunters in the training plant. One fan hypothesis is that the USS brought Hunters with them, possibly to fight escaped mutants that were believed to exist.
There is a theory I just read on this wiki regarding the hunters in the training facility... I don't think it is correct, because I was under the impression that Birkin created the Hunters AFTER Marcus's assassination... when you get a chance, check out the Hunter (MA-121) page, in the "use for combat" section. It states that Marcus used the training room for guards to combat the Hunters... The training room had skeletons... probably fallen USS troops from the '80s. I always thought the training room was for the experimental monkeys Marcus created. For some reason, it housed Hunters. What's up with that?
Recently while navigating the Resident Evil 3 page on ResidentEvil.Net I found a small piece of text that I don't know if it is in the game(I doubt) and want to know of it should be considered canon since ResidentEvil.net is used to track your game progress(or global) and points you can collect to get new icons. This is what I saw and it makes sense but it also means Nemesis has been seen by people not included in the story but could also play into Brad warning Jill of Nemesis. But it also means that despite bieng dropped off near Jill's apartment he did wander around the area for some time before attacking Jill.
