(Capcom's primary storyline)
The Umbrella Co. is a private military company which was founded in 2007 by the former staff of the original Umbrella Corporation following the collapse of the earlier. It has been nicknamed "Blue Umbrella" to disassociate it from the predecessor corporation and another corporation with the same name.
After the 1998 Raccoon City Destruction Incident, Umbrella was sued for damages in a class-action lawsuit over the deaths of 100,000 people and Umbrella U.S.A., the holding company controlling business in the US was banned from trading there. Over the next several years, Umbrella's profits collapsed and its bioweapons fell into the hands of the black market and terrorists. It lost the case in 2003, and its regional companies across the world filed for bankruptcy.
In 2007, Umbrella U.S.A.'s assets were handed over to some of the former high-executive staffs of the original company to be turned into a PMC. The purpose of the company is to make amend for their past sins in ushering the age of bio-terrorism and killing millions innocent people through their BOWS by combating the new threat of bioweaponry from organizations like The Connections. The company keeps their original name so the public will always know that the company is cleaning up the mess they had started several years ago.
