Part 3: Power and Loyalty is an issue of the Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire manga series, known as BIOHAZARD marhawa desire in Japan. There, it is referred to as "Episode 3" (第3話 Dai 3-wa ). It was first published in Issue #15 of the Weekly Shōnen Champion Extra's 2012 series, but was later on re-published in the first tankōbon volume on June 8.
Cpt. Chris Redfield, Piers Nivans and Merah Biji are eating at a restaurant out of uniform. They have checked Dr. Wright's house and found no one there. His requested leave has expired as of yesterday, meaning he is now missing. Hearing his nephew Ricky Tozawa left with him, Piers Nivans suggests asking people at Bennett University.
Back at Marhawa School, Bindi Bergara asks a younger student to call the fire department to put out the fire at the nearby building. The younger girl is reluctant to do so as it means contacting the outside. Mother Gracia overhears this conversation and reiterates her rule, that no contact be made with the outside. Mother Gracia tells the students to remain calm, and they quickly give in to her command. The building, she says, is the old club house, a building set for demolition which prematurely caught fire. As it is away from other buildings, there is no danger of the fire spreading.
Tozawa rushes towards the burning club house, followed by his uncle, after realising Mother Gracia has ordered the destruction of any evidence there was ever an outbreak. They rush past two older male students assigned as extra guards and enter the burning building. Tozawa quickly recognises the pendant on one of two corpses as belonging to Alisa Lin. Bergara follows the two in, but passes out from the fumes just as she sees the corpses.
The entry for Marhawa's Report in this issue mentions the Stairway of the Sun (Chinese: 太陽的階梯; Pinyin: tàiyáng de jiētī) and its origins in Africa, along with it being the source of the Progenitor Virus. The existence of the underground Ndipaya Kingdom has become public knowledge. Norovirus, SARS and Polio are all said to be among the RNA viruses used in bio-weapons research.
