(Capcom's primary storyline)

Travis Enterprises was a European merchant trading company founded in the 18th century for trading with the east. After Henry Travis' 19th century book "Natural History Conspectus", Travis Enterprises began its exploration of Africa, hunting down precious minerals noted in the book. Not wanting others to discover the unique resources that certain parts of the African continent possessed outlined in the book, as well as wanting a niche market, members the company, along with Henry's older brother, began spreading rumours that the contents of Henry Travis' book was embellished by creative writing and licensing. This led to not only the book becoming a failure, but also resulted in the explorer becoming discredited in the scientific community and indirectly resulted in his death due to depression brought on by these events. With few to none believing in the book's details and Travis' exploits, the company was able to covertly gain a firm foothold in Africa, where they began collecting fauna and flora in the 1950s for pharmaceutical purposes. Ultimately, the company would reestablished itself in the 1960s as Tricell, Inc..[1]
