"ParasiteTests" was an online file written as part of the Inserted Evil ARG campaign to advertise Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.




Experiments on the new parasite continue to uncover startling results.
Our initial tests proved that the parasite itself is incredibly weak.
Only a small amount of damage from a handgun, from a flamethrower and
even from cutting weapons can kill it quite easily. Although of course
it must be stated that the parasites were defenseless as we carried out
these tests. I for one would not like to take on a mobile parasite with
nothing but a knife.

However, today, events took a startling turn.

To determine the parasite's effectiveness in combat, we introduced a
fully t-virus infected humanoid specimen into the test area to determine
if it had some unforeseen combat abilities.

As expected, the specimen did not attack the parasite (it is not
composed of ‘flesh' after all). But, considering the parasite's
previously exhibited aggression, we were surprised to note that it did
not attack the infected humanoid either.

Instead it seemed to ‘sample' the air, before moving behind the
specimen. It then launched itself at the back of the specimen and with
one flick of its pincers decapitated it where it stood. Instead of
falling to the ground, it remained standing, swaying slowly from side to
side while the parasite seemed to be feasting from its neck stump.

Although this is extremely fascinating, we cannot currently explain this

Trials will continue.

DAY 13

The parasite is now controlling the specimen!
We initially believed the parasite was feasting on the juices from
within the specimen's carcass, sucking them up a number of
proboscis-like tubes. But as we continued the trials and extended the
duration periods the results were staggering.

In truth, the parasite was hacking straight into the infected's central
nervous system, straight into its spinal column and controlling it
directly. The parasite effectively became it's ‘brain'. Or, as one of my
colleagues put it, the parasite is driving the specimen like a
two-legged vehicle.

We have observed the parasitic couple nearly all day today, and there
seems to be no further developments.

DAY 22

Again the parasite has surprised us.

One of our armed security men accompanied one of my colleagues into the
parasite's cell to retrieve some tissue samples. What happened next
shocked us all. The parasite-humanoid appeared to wait until they were a
couple of steps into the cell before it made an aggressive maneuver
towards them – almost running. Before the security guard had chance to
react, the parasitically-bonded specimen had lifted him off his feet and
hurled him against the bars.

My colleague was just as unfortunate, as the parasite's pincers tore the
top half of her body from the bottom.

Unbelievable. The “parasite zombie” was demonstrably faster and stronger
than its zombie host or the parasite itself.

Tomorrow we shall try to remove the parasite from the zombie to
understand how it can animate the specimen so effectively.

DAY 28

The more the NE-Beta Parasite is studied, the more impressive it becomes
on every level. Today showed that the parasite is doing much more than
just ‘driving' the specimen – it has made it much tougher than it ever
was before.

We decided on a course of action to remove the parasite from the zombie.
We believed the most obvious course was to attempt to destroy the
zombie's legs, leaving the parasite host with no method of locomotion.

It soon became clear however that the specimen was now almost completely
impervious to damage! Small arms fire, machine guns, flamethrowers and
even a frag grenade had minimal effect on the host as well as the
parasite, which continued to search for ways to get its pincers on its

During today's activities we lost two more security guards and another
research aid – but they were sacrifices worth making as they revealed
another offensive weapon the “parasite zombie” has at its disposal.

As these three entered the cell, the parasite began spraying a strange
substance onto them – an acrid bile that instantly slowed their progress
as they began coughing and gasping for air. With its perceived threat
incapacitated it was only a matter of seconds before the unfortunate
trio lay dead.

This spray attack also had another characteristic however. We noticed
that while the three guinea pigs were covered in the bile, all of our
test subjects in nearby holding areas became extremely agitated,
throwing themselves against the wall closest to the bile-covered trio in
order to break through and get to them. It was also noted by some of my
colleagues that they did this with an urgency and strength not usually

It seems that this substance, whatever it proves to be, has some kind of
stimulating effect on other B.O.W.s and is of course something we need
to study further.

DAY 36

I will be taking over this record from today as the Doctor was
unfortunately killed this morning.

The parasite and specimen itself were finally killed today as well. The
method was simple: whilst it fed on a fresh body (the unfortunate
Doctor), we attacked the parasite itself from behind. Concentrated fire
killed it, at which point the exhausted specimen body was also

Obviously this is just the start of our studies.
