The Hunter α (development code: "MA-121") can be regarded as the first fully functional and marketable built-from-scratch B.O.W. produced by Umbrella.[citation needed] It was created by injecting reptilian DNA into a human embryo and administering the t-Virus as a bonding agent.[citation needed] The MA-121α went through intensive research and development at the underground lab in Raccoon City.

HistoryEdit

The first of the alpha models were developed by Albert Wesker and William Birkin within the Arklay Laboratory, which was located under the Spencer Mansion.[citation needed] Despite the positive results of the alpha model, Umbrella continued research in diverse variations of the Hunter, resulting in the future production of several Hunter variants.

In the midst of the t-Virus outbreak in Raccoon Forest, a number of α models were released by a resurrected James Marcus to eliminate Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen as they combed the Umbrella Research Center. There were also a good deal of Alphas still being stored in the Arklay Laboratory, where it appeared that they took to hunting across the estate with at least one of them reaching the estate and slashing at wallpaper, evident in one of the rooms. Although highly reliable, Umbrella continued to make modifications to its specific design, resulting in the Hunter R model.

However, despite Umbrella's newer prototypes, the α model proved to be the most well-developed base, and the mass-production Hunter model stemmed from the α line. An example of the mass-production model's usage was in 2004, during the Terragrigia Panic; the terrorist group, Veltro deployed a massive number of these Hunters into Terragrigia. They were destroyed along with the city by the Regia Solis. In 2005, several Hunters were encountered by the BSAA on board the Queen Zenobia and at an abandoned Veltro base, along with their enhanced t-Abyss counterparts, the Farfarellos.
