TerraSave (テラセイブ?) is a multi-national non-governmental human rights agency introduced in Resident Evil: Degeneration. Claire Redfield happens to be one of the prominent members of TerraSave, along with Curtis Miller.



TerraSave Commercial

Its primary functions are to provide aid, both through supplies and manpower, during bioterrorism and medical-related incidents, monitoring medication distribution, ensuring safe drug development and research facilities, in addition to organizing mass protests against corporations and governments.[1] Its members have overwhelming political and public support. Much of the organization's other functions are unknown; however, it is known to be linked to several government-related organizations (e.g., the U.N. World Health Organization, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, etc.) Additionally, TerraSave took in children who were orphaned by Bio-Terrorism as its wards.


TerraSave was formed as a result of the 1998 Raccoon City Destruction Incident, when it became clear that governments and corporations covered up man-made disasters in efforts to gain profits.[1]

Terragrigia Panic (2004)[]

Many Terrasave agents were present at the site of the outbreak before its eventual destruction. Among those deployed were Gina Foley and Neil Fisher, the latter of which rescued Natalia Korda, then a 3-year-old child, after her parents had died.

WP scandal (2005)[]

TerraSave originally came into conflict with the WP Corporation when one of its activists, Dr. Curtis Miller, was publicly arrested following heated allegations of the WP Corporation conducting illegal experiments. Because there was no proof at the time, TerraSave officially disassociated itself from Miller. Later, however, TerraSave found photos of the WP Corporation's latest human test subjects; the result of their clinical tests on humans conducted in India. All of the victims had been exposed to the t-Virus. As a result, TerraSave demanded that the WP Corporation immediately release the results of their tests. TerraSave's scathing accusations hurled at the WP Corporation caused the company's stock fall sharply and its public relations degraded to the point it had civilian members establishing picket lines outside its Harvardville facility and the local airport (in the hope to confront the politician Senator Ron Davis; who gave his full and questionable support to the corporation and had arrived for a pharmaceutical conference).

Harvardville (2005)[]

In 2005, in an effort to save the WP Corporation, one of its employees, Frederic Downing, unleashed the virus on different areas around the world as a twisted sales pitch to General Miguel Grandé, the head of the Republic of Bajirib and a sponsor of terrorism. In India, Downing himself acted as the black market broker who supplied the virus, with the company claiming its "human testing" was really an attack made by terrorists who somehow got a hold of the virus. This would allow the WP Corporation to regain its political standing as the U.S. Government, using the covertly-developed vaccine, solving the crisis with a minimum amount of casualties. To restore its public image, Downing along with his pawn Curtis Miller, who had no idea of his true intentions, unleashed the t-Virus on the Harvardville Airport, which would in turn be crushed by the U.S. Marine Corps protected by the WP Corporation's vaccine, and the outbreak itself would be blamed on Miller. Then the WP Corporation would claim the hundreds of civilian lives were lost due to TerraSave effectively backing them into a corner and forcing them to withhold the vaccine from the nearby population, making TerraSave appear to be at fault for the outbreak's casualties.

The plan would ultimately come undone when TerraSave member Claire Redfield, with the help of U.S. agent Leon S. Kennedy, exposed Downing's scheme, which resulted in the bankruptcy of the WP Corporation.

However, by this point, TerraSave's reputation was severely damaged, as even with the revealing of the main perpetrator behind the outbreaks through legitimate news sources; some people still saw TerraSave as a cult-like organization whose members were terrorists, mostly likely due to the actions of Curtis Miller along with the claims made by the WP Corporation during the outbreaks. This perception of the organization would continue to be held by some people even as far as a decade after the incident.[2]

Aftermath of Penamstan Civil War (2006)[]

After six year of civil war ends with the insurgents laying down their arms, Terrasave and U.N steps in to help with the refugees and provide shelter and supplies. Redfield ventures inside the war-torn country and visits one of the camps where she meets a young mute and paraplegic boy who provides drawings of what he had witness in 2000 which depicts masses eating each other, recognizing the use of t-Virus and other similar bioweapons. Terrasave sent Redfield as their representative in meeting with Press Secretary Spacer in constructing more public buildings for Penamstan. After Redfield discovers the truth behind the civil war's conspiracy, she is kidnapped by Defense Secretary Wilson who intends to bribe her silence with charitable donations to Terrasave's mission in Penamstan but refuses the offer. When the captain of the Mad Dogs Jason mutates and rampages, Redfield assists U.S agent Leon S. Kennedy in defeating him and learns of the chip which contains recording of combat data and information that exposes Wilson about his crimes. Redfield asks for the chip to be publicized but is denied by Kennedy much to her anger and dismay.

Kijuju Autonomous Zone (2009)[]

TerraSave agents were present in Kijuju Autonomous Zone to help the civilians after the Kijuju Autonomous Zone Incident. Among those deployed were Gabriel Chavez and Pedro Fernandez, where they reportedly had to run away from the infected in the area.

HQ Attack and Fear Experiments (2011)[]

In 2011, the NGO's headquarters were attacked by an unknown paramilitary force. Claire Redfield and some of her co-workers, including new hire, Moira Burton were kidnapped and taken to a deserted prison on an island. The kidnapped members are used as test subjects by a bioterrorist who is calling herself the Overseer. This was later discovered to be an act of betrayal perpetrated by TerraSave manager, Neil Fisher, who secretly held allegiance to the now defunct F.B.C. With the aid of Barry Burton and the BSAA, Claire and Moira survive the incident.

Idol Survival investigation (2014)[]

Following reports of suspicious activity at Sonido de Tortuga, TerraSave sent out Redfield and Inéz Diaco to investigate.

San Francisco Beach Investigation (2015)[]

At some point prior, the NGO organization had attached the chip to an orca where it was monitored by Terrasave. However, the orca is viciously attacked by an unknown creature with its carcass washed ashore on the beach of San Francisco, California. An citizen named William Gunner noticed the tracking chip and contact the organization with Claire Redfield acts as its representative and response the call. Redfield discovers the abnormal bite wound on the orca and analyzes the sample where she discovers that it had traces of Tyrant Virus. Together with her brother Chris and his partner Jill Valentine, who were conducting their own investigation into San Francisco Serial Murders that are happening across the city as well as B.S.A.A advisor Rebecca Chambers assisting in the investigation. The four discovers that all 12 of the victims had been to the popular tourist site Alcatraz Island and infected with special strain of T-Virus transmitted through needle marks. The three ventures to the island where they discovers that the culprit is former Umbrella Security Service member Dylan Blake and his accomplice María Gómez. With D.S.O operative Leon Scott Kennedy's help and Chambers, the team manages to kill the culprit and thwart their plans.
