(Covers information from the S.D. Perry novels)
The Umbrella Corporation was an international conglomerate enterprise with its headquarters based in Austria.
Umbrella entered the military industry after researchers Drs. James and Helen Darius developed a revolutionary tissue repair method. Aware the two had conflicting ethical beliefs, the company had the two killed in a fire-related "accident", and had Dr. William Birkin assume control over their research. The resulting action was the creation of "White Umbrella" as a weapons research division.
Bio-weapons development is performed by White Umbrella, a secretive division. It also has an "Industrial Services Division", which took part in the investigation of the fire at the Spencer Mansion.
