Alex Wesker is the twelfth of thirteen candidates for Project W, an early Umbrella program to create a "superior race of humans", to quote CEO Oswell E. Spencer.

HistoryEdit

"You'll be pleased to hear that all experiments are running smoothly. "
— Alex, to Spencer

Alex was raised by Lord Oswell E. Spencer to become one of a superior breed of humans.[1][2] The project involved the abduction of a number of children thought to be of "superior" DNA. The children would then be given the surname Wesker, in honor of the project's head researcher.[2] Alex made a report on Project W on 28 August 1998, which states that before Albert Wesker faked his death, the project was at a 94% rate of success, but after the news of his death, the project went down to just 18%.[3]

In Spencer's view, Alex was also one of his "loyal" remaining children that he had at his side.[1] The brightest of them all, in Spencer's view and words, "so adept at absorbing the talents of others simply by observing them."[4] Alex was conducting experiments at the South Seas at an island for Spencer,[4] where he researched and studied a virus in order to find the secret of immortality for him.[1][2][5] Out of all odds, Alex accomplished this feat, but betrayed Spencer by disappearing and taking the results.[6]

At present, Alex's status is unknown. Whether being immortal, simply in hiding, or dead, Alex's exact fate has yet to be made clear.

Further notesEdit

  • In the English translations of the Spencer's Memoirs files, Alex's gender is not stated, leading speculation that Alex could be female. However, in the original Japanese script, the pronoun "奴" is used in Spencer's Memoirs 2 to identify Alex as male.
