Chris's Report is a file in Resident Evil 2. It is one of the EX Files exclusive to the Nintendo 64 version of the game.
This file is found in the taxidermy room after Claire Redfield uncovers Irons' secret passage. In order for Leon Scott Kennedy to obtain the file, the player must backtrack through the first waterway. This file is only present in the "B" scenario.
Below is my account of what led up to the explosion of the mansion:
On July 23, S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team, lead by Captain Marini, went to investigate the bizarre homicides that occurred in the Arklay Mountains. After contact with team's chopper was lost, S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team, lead by Captain Wesker went in.
We found the remains of Bravo team's helicopter on the ground. After landing we were immediately attacked by blood thirsty dogs. We later discovered that these dogs were actually zombie dogs as they did not even feel our gunfire. After Joseph Frost was killed, we were forced to retreat to a nearby mansion.
After further investigating the mansion, we learned that it was actually a secret laboratory of Umbrella Inc..
All researchers were turned into zombies by some type of unknown virus. We also discovered that Umbrella was using that lab as a testing area for new Bio Organic Weapons.
We found the dead bodies of some of the Bravo team members including Enrico Marini, Kenneth Sullivan, Forest Speyer, and Richard Aiken. We believe that those Bio Organic Weapons caused their deaths.
After that we discovered that Captain Wesker was actually working with Umbrella and that both Alpha and Bravo teams were being used as live test subjects for the Bio Organic Weapons. Wesker had betrayed us!
We barely managed to survive that nightmare. However, since the mansion exploded, there is no evidence to support our claims of Umbrella's secret lab or the Bio Organic Weapons.
The zombie phenomenon that has been occurring in the city is extremely similar to the zombies we saw at the mansion. We suspect that Umbrella is somehow linked to all this.
In order to solve this mystery and put an end to the zombies that are roaming the city, I propose we launch a formal investigation into Umbrella.
Thank you for your attention to this extremely important matter.
S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team
Dear Chief Irons,
The following is a report on the events within the Arklay Mountains that culminated in the destruction of the mansion:
Our investigation into determining the cause of the bizarre murders began on July 23rd, when Captain Marini led S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team into the Arklay Mountains. At some point, we lost communication with their helicopter and were unable to reach the members of the team.
Captain Wesker then led Alpha Team on a search and rescue mission. While flying over the woodlands, we had finally discovered Bravo Team's crashed helicopter.
We landed at the scene and began our investigation, until we were attacked by a pack of rabid dogs and had to abort. The dogs appeared to have been zombified with visibly decomposing flesh and they were able to withstand our gunfire without even flinching.
During the attack, Officer Joseph Frost received a fatal gash to his throat and died instantly. The incident occurred within proximity to the mansion where we were forced to retreat, unaware that it was to blame for everything.
As we explored the interior of the mansion, we discovered that it was a facility owned by Umbrella. The murderous virus developed by Umbrella had claimed the lives of the researchers within the facility, transforming all of them into zombies.
In addition to those, we discovered a number of biological weapons developed by Umbrella. We also found the bodies of Bravo Team members Enrico Marini, Kenneth Sullivan, Forest Speyer, and Richard Aiken, who we believe were murdered by these weapons.
While our investigation progressed, we unveiled evidence of a collusive relationship between Captain Wesker and Umbrella. All of the evidence confirmed that Wesker had set us up.
Somehow we were able to escape the mansion alive, but unfortunately all of the evidence from the incident was decimated when the mansion blew to smithereens.
The recent unknown disease plaguing Raccoon City bears a striking resemblance to the unusual zombie phenomena we witnessed within the mansion. It is very likely that Umbrella is somehow involved with this incident as well. With that in mind, I request that we launch an investigation into the Umbrella Corporation and take any measures we can against them.
S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team
- This file suggests that Captain Enrico Marini was murdered by a B.O.W., when he appeared to have only been attacked by one. Kenneth, Forest, and Richard were killed by non-B.O.W.s as well. Likewise, the file claims that the surviving S.T.A.R.S. members recovered no evidence from the mansion, which various sources have confirmed to be untrue.
- In 2015, Joe Whyte read the file while in character during Crimson-head.com's podcast.
