(Capcom's primary storyline)
Humans who are infected with C-Virus via injection are known to enter a cocoon state known as a chrysalis, where their body is dissolved and a new creature is born out of the human host's original DNA and reptile; mammal or arthropod genes introduced by the viral infection. The new creature, upon its emergence from the chrysalis, is known as a Complete Mutant. As part of Neo Umbrella's bioweapons project, Dr. Carla Radames developed a number of C-Virus variants which would introduce different animal genes to the infected organism.[note 1]
During The Family's and Neo Umbrella's research, a number of radically different Complete Mutant species were created. Irregular mutants deemed successful may have had their genes used to create new C-Virus strains, as identical mutants were seen in China, such as Strelac; Napad and Mesec, which saw heavy use. Highly dangerous mutants such as Brzak; Ubistvo and Iluzija may have been one-of-a-kind mutants, or saw limited duplication such as with Ogroman. Ustanak is known to have been a one-of-a-kind human bio-weapon, having been created to serve as a right-hand for Dr. Carla Radames. Haos was also developed in secret as a world-ending bioweapon capable of dispersing C-Virus across the world.
Aside from the research into bio-weapons, creatures such as the Lepotica and the Gnzedo were the byproducts of a long-lasting project to genetically modify a human being to take on the genes of Ada Wong. They were subsequently duplicated for use as weapons. The project was ultimately a success, with the mutation of Dr. Radames herself into a Ada copy.
