Prologue[note 1] is a cutscene in Resident Evil 4.


Leon Scott Kennedy recounts his years and his only day in the force as a rookie cop during the city's wide outbreak with the day being the death of his inner cop and express deep regret over the enormous causalities in the aftermath of the sterilization by US Government and blaming Umbrella and its BOWs. Afterwards, Leon is forced into the role as a Government agent and undergoes training in the top-secret government program, going through the grueling training and participating in punishing missions and gaining proficiency in the weapon handling and close quarters combat, training under Major Jack Krauser.


Leon S. Kennedy: "September 30th, 1998...
It's a day I'll never forget.
The cop inside me died that day.
And that night, Raccoon City was wiped out. Thanks to the bioweapons created by Umbrella.
Somehow, I made it out. But too many others...weren't so lucky.

I was 'asked' later to join a top-secret government program.
Not that I had a choice.
The training, the punishing missions nearly killed me.
But at least they kept my mind off everything.

If I could just forget what happened that night, the pain—even for a second.
This time, it can be different.
It has to."
