July 23, 1998

It all began with a series of bizarre, cannibalistic murders occurring in the outskirts of Raccoon City. In response, the Raccoon Police Department dispatches the Bravo team of S.T.A.R.S., an elite special forces unit, to investigate. However, an engine failure forces them to make an emergency landing in their helicopter. The team survives the rough landing, only to discover an MP vehicle, whose passengers had been gruesomely murdered…

Bravo team sets out in search of the only suspect, an escaped ex-Marine convict…

In response to the helicopter crash, and the lack of correspondence from the Bravo team, the S.T.A.R.S. captain dispatches Alpha team. When the Alpha team touch down to investigate the crash site, they are attacked by a pack of ferocious dogs…

… and barely escape into a nearby mansion.

What awaits them inside…

… is a nightmare, where undead creatures walk the mansion.

As they search for an escape from the dangers of the mansion, Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, and the other S.T.A.R.S. members, uncover the grim truth. The zombies in the mansion are the byproducts of a bioweapon that was manufactured by Umbrella.

Taking great risks along the way, the remaining S.T.A.R.S. members escape the mansion within an inch of their lives. Upon their escape, Jill, Chris, and any S.T.A.R.S. left alive, vowed to work together, in order to expose Umbrella’s dark secret.

And so, what would later come to be known as the “Mansion Incident”, came to an end…
