The Bandersnatch was a B.O.W. model type developed by the Umbrella Corporation in 1998. The name originates from Lewis Carroll's poems The Hunting of the Snark and Jabberwocky, which give no description of the creature.

HistoryEdit

The Bandersnatch was developed as an offshoot of the Tyrant project, intended for reasons of practicality.[1][excerpt 1] The reason for this was simple - those with the necessary genes to be turned into Tyrants were small in number, and the Tyrants themselves were expensive to develop. In short, the Bandersnatch was a 'cost-effective' alternative proposal. Due to the flawed/cost-effective processes used in their creation, parts of their anatomy tended to atrophy away within moments of their creation; the atrophied parts were often their left arms.

The Bandersnatch program was still in its prototype stage when its housing facility, the military training camp on Rockfort Island, was attacked by the Hive/Host Capture Force.

Albert Wesker, who led the attack, obtained the Bandersnatch research data for further experimentation. The Jabberwock S3 was the product of this research.

(タイラントをベースとし、単体での兵器としての完成度より実用性を重視して作られた量産型の試作体。人に凝装するケースが想定されておらず、みにくい外観を露呈している。下半身が退化しているため歩行能力に難がある。左腕も欠如しているが、逆に発達した伸縮自在の右腕が、それらの欠点をおぎなっている。?)
