Due to the Web Spinners' unpredictable nature, B.O.W. research on the specimens was suspended, and the subjects supposedly destroyed. This specimen had an unusual reaction to the virus, becoming a larger and more-deadly version. With the mansion compromised by a t-Virus outbreak, the spider population was no longer controlled.

Alpha team officers Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine during the police investigation of the mountains to investigate a number of murders.
