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

  • While the Spencer's Memoirs files make it vague as to Alex's sex, a Japanese guidebook confirmed Alex to be male with the line "That man's name: Alex." (その男の名は、アレック ス。 Sono otoko no na wa, arekku su.?)
