Neil Fisher (c.1972-2011) was a TerraSave executive responsible for observing bioterrorism trends around the world and leading relief efforts.[excerpt 1] He became the leader of TerraSave at some point in its history, and was known for his calm nature, likely having become long desensitised to the horrors of bioweapons, and was trusted for his sharp insight.[excerpt 2] Inspired by Morgan Lansdale, Fisher was willing to take extreme actions to fight bioterrorism, and in 2011 betrayed ten members of TerraSave to recover an Uroboros Virus sample from Dr. Alex Wesker. Betrayed himself and infected with the virus he sought to obtain, Fisher's mutations drove him insane and he was killed by TerraSave member Moira Burton.
In 2004, Fisher was a member of the Federal Bioterrorism Commission, an American organisation set up to tackle the emerging threat of bioweapons being used by terrorist organisations. In that year, Il Veltro attacked the European city of Terragrigia, causing uncounted civilian deaths. After three weeks of tiring fighting, FBC commissioner Morgan Lansdale ordered the Regia Solis satellite to destroy the city entirely. During the fighting, Fisher is known to have rescued a child, Natalia Korda, after the slaying of her parents in front of her. Also a member of the TerraSave group, Fisher ensured her safe evacuation and gave her a teddy bear for comfort, before sending her to live with the group.
In 2005, it was discovered Lansdale himself had engineered the t-Abyss Virus used by Il Veltro in the belief that by causing the escalation of terrorism the world would quickly prepare itself. The FBC was shut down and its equipment and personnel transferred to the BSAA. Fisher however focused on his role in TerraSave, and remained a loyal soldier of Lansdale's, sharing his belief the Terragrigia Panic was for the greater good.
Sejm Island incident (2011)
Following the 2009 Kijuju Autonomous Zone Incident, Fisher became greatly concerned over the threat Uroboros posed to the world. By 2011 he had entered talks with Dr. Alex Wesker, a former Umbrella virologist who was in possession of the virus. Wesker's organisation was deep in research on the t-Phobos Project, the creation of a virus that would give superhuman abilities to an infected host. Possessing technology for digitising her own consciousnesses and transferring it into another person, Wesker required a successful superhuman candidate to achieve her desired goal. In exchange for a sample of Uroboros for use in creating a vaccine, Fisher agreed to help her complete t-Phobos. Test subjects could only be successful superhumans based on the levels of Norepinephrine hormones in their body, which required the person to be exposed to life-threatening events but not be overcome by fear. Fisher drew up a list of eleven candidates, himself included, who had been exposed to the horrors of biohazards and had a chance of success. Among the eleven was Korda who, despite her young age, was suspected to have a greater chance than the others. Fisher also put himself on the list as a candidate, knowing that if Korda failed he would be Wesker's choice.
After the list was sent over to Wesker's aide, Stuart, Fisher invited the ten to a TerraSave fundraiser. Including himself and Korda were Claire Redfield, Gabriel Chavez, Gina Foley, Moira Burton, Pedro Fernandez, Edward Thompson and three others. The fundraiser was soon raided by an armed paramilitary group loyal to Wesker, and everyone was knocked unconscious by gas and taken to Sejm, an island in the Baltic Sea where the t-Phobos Project was underway. How long Fisher was out is unknown, as is where he was taken to, but he was infected with the t-Phobos Virus as part of the agreement.
Fisher quickly made his way around the island observing the success rate of the test subjects. In time he met up with Chavez, Fernandez and Thompson in the woods, perhaps having already crossed out the three people he confirmed dead. They were instructed by Wesker, communicating by wrist devices, to head to Wossek, a village bar, where they were to receive new instructions. Fisher himself separated from the others following Thompson's death at the hands of an approaching mob of Afflicted. When he arrived at Wossek, Fernandez had failed the test and mutated into an out-of-control monster. Seeing potential in Redfield and Burton, he rescued the two and led them away into a derelict town, leaving Chavez behind. Fisher would soon abandon the two women and went off on his own once more. Soon after, he discovered Korda was still alive, having been found by the women. Deciding she was indeed the candidate Wesker was looking for, he snatched Korda off the street before they noticed he was there.
Bringing Korda to the Monument, a large tower Wesker used as her base of operations. Korda was placed in a chamber where she was to be put in life support for six months for her mutations and memory transfer to be complete. Following this, Fisher met with Wesker to demand his payment. Rather than hand over a sample, Wesker instead fired a dart at him that infected him with Uroboros. With there being no need of him as a candidate, Fisher was now a risk to her plans. While trying to escape the Monument, Fisher was met by Redfield and Burton, who had become aware of his treachery. He defended his actions, and soon mutated.
Through his mutation, Neil's personality changed, and he was driven insane. Turning on Redfield and Burton, he lunged at them while declaring his intention to restore the FBC. The feeling of intense heat, however, weakened his abilities to fight back. As the two women tried to escape in an elevator, he was able to bring it crashing to the ground. As he tried to kill Redfield, Burton fired a gun at him, which finally killed him.
