Episode 24 (第24話 Dai 24-wa ) is the twenty-fourth chapter in the Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire manga series. It was first published in Issue #6 of the Weekly Shōnen Champion Extra's 2013 series, but was later on re-published in the fourth tankōbon volume on May 8.
Marhawa School has fallen to the C-Virus, in a plot by Bindi Bergara and Nanan Yoshihara, working for a mysterious hooded woman. Ricky Tozawa appears to be the only survivor left as a BSAA team arrives.
Piers Nivans is on the rooftop of a building, using his sniper rifle to get a better sight of the school. He determines there are no survivors. Merah Biji has found no survivors yet as she approaches the assembly room. Only Cpt. Chris Redfield has found a survivor, Tozawa himself. He introduces himself to Tozawa, who quickly realises he is the man his uncle, Dr. Doug Wright spoke of. Cpt. Redfield needs to retrieve Dr. Wright immediately, as the three do not have enough equipment or soldiers to handle this outbreak. Handed a radio, Tozawa explains the events leading up to the current state, surprising the BSAA members, who could never imagine a school student leading it.
Piers heads into the Gambit hoping to get a radio signal to bring in reinforcements from the Far East Branch. Since the Marhawa School is isolated, he'll have to drive far to get a signal out. After sending the message out, he is told, he is to turn back and support Chris; Merah and Ricky.
Chris orders Merah to find Bindi. The girl is needed alive, Chris tells her as she takes out a crowd of zombies with her agility, because she could be of use in confirming Doug's theory that this is an entirely new viral strain. Chris, meanwhile, goes with Ricky to find Doug.
In the infirmary, Doug is dreaming that he and Ricky solved the case and went back to Barrett University to eat at the monthly staff cooking competition. He wakes up to find a letter addressed to him, from Gracia. He sees a figure looking down at him; initially thinking it is Ricky, he concentrates further and sees Nanan. He then passes out. As Merah checks the Teacher's Room Kwan was just in, she gets a transmission from Chris - they've found Doug, but he is already a zombie. Chris wrestles him to the ground while Ricky cries out; since he is a member of the BSAA's Far East Branch, he requires permission from another Far East member (Merah) to kill him; she agrees that he must be euthanised. Ricky remembers his mother's funeral ten years earlier, when Doug took him in as a parent figure. He objects to Chris, and asks to kill his uncle himself.
