The Hunter γ (development code: "MA-124")[1] model of Hunter was developed by Umbrella Europe as part of a reinvestigation into amphibian-based B.O.W.s, which failed ten years earlier with Dr. Marcus' Lurker.[2] It was nicknamed the "Frogger" by its development team.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Hunter γ was developed based on information retrieved from the American branch's Hunter α model. Contrary to the American design method, the Hunter γ involved human DNA being bonded with a fertilised amphibian egg with the t-Virus.[3][excerpt 1]

In 1998, a number of γ models were transported to Raccoon City. At least two of them were stored in the Umbrella lab underneath the Raccoon General Hospital. Carlos Oliveira, a Corporal in the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service, inadvertently released them while trying to synthesis a t-Virus reagent for Jill Valentine. By October 1, a pack had established their hunting ground in a pond at Raccoon Park.

A clawless version of the "γ" was also being stored in the water treatment facility underneath Raccoon University at the same time. Quickly breaking out of their storage capsules also on October 1, these Hunters reacted well to the damp, subterranean environment and the pools of water in the plant.

While being considered improper for a B.O.W. due to the conditions necessary for survival, Umbrella nonetheless continued to produce the "γ" model as late as 2002, where a number were sold into the hands of Javier Hidalgo.

excerpts
  1. Excerpt from Conquest of Nemesis, p.74:
    "アメリカの研究チーム主導で開発されたハンターα・β型に対して、 そのノハウハウを利用しつつアンブレラのヨーロッパ研究所が独自に完成させたのが、 ”フロッガー” の通称で呼ばれる、 この特異なフォルムを持つγ型である。 ベースとなる受精卵にあえて両生類のものを用い、 培養過程で人間の遺伝子を加えるという従来とは逆の発想で生み出されており、大方の予想に反してその知能はβ型とくらべても遜色のないレベルに逹している。 ただし、 両生類の特性的に乾燥や直射日光に弱く、 汎用性に欠ける点で商品化は難しいと見られており、 今回ラクーンシティい送りこまれたんも、 ヨーロッパ支部による牽制の意味合いが強いようだ。"
