R&D Report [2 of 2] is the second file that can be found in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. This deals in a closer approach on how Eveline uses the Mold, explaining its etymological meaning, to create the superorganisms known as the Molded. Also, the report mentions about the treatment of the infection and its enchanced version, the E-Necrotoxin, and the effects of both serums depending on the stages of the victims. At last, this script explores a little about Eveline's obsession with a family.
In the Salt Mine region, inside the Storage Room in a desk located to the right of the one where the E-Necrotoxin is stored in a case.
Eveline's functions also include the ability to form organisms from mycelia, the fungal filaments.
The term "organism" is used loosely here; strictly speaking, they are superorganisms formed of countless mycelia. What's important, though, is that they exhibit a strong survival instinct and will defend themselves ferociously with the slightest provocation. Their fungal toughness and remarkable strength give them significant battlefield potential.
The researches have been calling these super-organisms the "Molded"; made of mold, and also molded as in "shaped". The name has a certain elegance to it.
For the treatment of accidental infections, performing □□□□□ on samples of Eveline's body tissue produces a unique fungicidal serum.
Administering the serum to an infected subject will cause the mycelia to calcify, but if the subject's cells are already largely invaded, the serum will be fatal. Since the treatment window is so small, the serum's primary use is therefore disposal of infected subjected, rather than a cure.
In exploring the serum's potential, we found that subjecting it to □□□□□ would enchance its effects to extreme potency, becoming a compound we now call E-Necrotoxin, which □□□□□□□□□□□□□ in even tiny amounts.
What's been interesting to observe in Eveline's behavior is her obsession with the concept of family.
In experiments, we found multiple occasions that infected subjects were compelled to act as her "mother" or "father", treating her as if she were really their daughter.
Why did she settle upon family as the theme for her mental control?
This is just speculation, but it could be that she instinctively understand that a family unit is better suited to blending into social groups than a lone girl.
On the other hand...well, a sentimental sort might suggest she's making up for a perceived lack of "love" in her quarentined upbringing. A parent's love.
