Prime universe
(Capcom's primary storyline)

"The Abyss" is a retrovirus discovered in the early 2000s. The virus spreads through fluid transmission, and is estimated at having a 99.76% chance of infection.[1]


This virus was isolated in the body of a fish native to the Kermadec Trench east of New Zealand.[1] Its discoverers, an expedition team from the Montpellier University of Marine Science, noted that the virus altered animal bodies to break down fat, improve muscular strength as well as developing a skeleton more capable of surviving in high pressure environments.[1]

Following its discovery, Montpellier worked alongside the FBC in genetically engineering a viral weapon by splicing the Abyss' genetic material into that of the t-Virus.
