Castellan Memo, known in the original script as "8th Castellan's Memo" (8代目城主のメモ 8-Daime jōshu no memo?), is a file in Resident Evil 4.

Location

The file can be recovered in the castle parlour in Chapter 3-2. It is sitting on a round table in the first part of the room before the door into the main chamber.[1]

Transcript

For many years the Salazar family has served as the castellans of this castle. However, not everything is bright, for my ancestry has a dark past.

Long ago there once was a religious group that had deep roots in this region called the Los Illuminados. Unjustly however, the first castellan of the castle took away their rights and powers.

As a follower of this religion and as the 8th Castellan, I felt that it was my duty as well as my responsibility to atone for that sin.

I knew the best way to atone for that sin was to give power back to those who we once took it away from, the Los Illuminados.

As expected it took a little time, but we were able to rejuvenate the once sealed Las Plagas. With this success I was one step closer to the revival of the Los Illuminados.

The reason why I released the Las Plagas from deep under the castle and gave them to Lord Saddler was not only to repay for the sins of my ancestors but I felt certain that the Lord would make better use of this power to help save the world.

To save those that have sinned with the power of the Las Plagas and to cleanse the their souls creating a world without sinners. The way it was meant to be. Once cleansed, they would become one of the many Ganados where they will find their reason to live.

And after the Lord has succeeded in creating the world in which he has envisioned, then the sins of my Salazar family will be atoned for.

代々、ここの城主を務める、我がサラザール家には、過去に背負った罪がある。

その昔、この城の初代城主が、この地に生まれたロス・イルミナドス教団を弾圧し、その力を奪った罪だ。

私は教団の信者であると共に、この城の8代目城主として、過去にこの城で犯された罪をつぐなう必要がある。

そしてその罪をつぐなうには、何よりも先ず、ロス・イルミナドス教団の真の力を復活させる事が必要だった。

これには多少時間がかかったが、この城に封印されていた「プラーガ」の再生にも成功し、ようやく教団は、発足当時の力を取り戻す事ができた。

しかし、この城の地下に封印されていた「プラーガ」を、私の手でサドラー様にお返ししたのは、過去の罪をつぐなうためだけではない。

「プラーガ」をサドラー様の力として役立ててもらえれば、全ての人々が救われる事に気付いたからだ。

罪深き人間たちを「プラーガ」の力で浄化する事は、世界を正しい姿に変える上でも必要な事だ。

彼らは「ガナード」となってこそ、生きるに値する存在になれる。

そして、この世界の全てが、サドラー様の理念にかなったものとなった時我がサラザール家の罪も、つぐなえた事になるのだ。

Analysis

The memo overflows with a religious, confirming Ramon Salazar's devotion to Los Iluminados. His ancestor sealed the Plaga long ago, but Ramon has since spontaneously initiated an excavation, thus freeing them. It is shown that this action is urged to do this as atonement for his family's sins.[2][excerpt 1]

  1. Excerpt from biohazard 4 kaitaishinsho revised edition, page 446:
    "ロス・イルミナドス教団の信者である城主ラモン・サラザールがつづった、信仰心あふれる手記。現在の村の惨状が、過去にサラザール家の先祖が封印したプラーガを彼がわざわざ掘り起こした結果だということが、このファイルにより明らかになる。これを読むに、プラーガの発掘はラモンが自発的に行なったようだが、サラザールが彼の"罪"につけこみ、暗に発掘をうながしたとも考えられなくはない。"
