Claire's Story Edit
After Moira desperately calls for help inside the radio tower, she and Claire are now heading to the Wossek as instructed by the Overseer. Meanwhile, at night, Pedro Fernandez, Gabriel Chavez and Neil Fisher are being pursued by several Afflicted which Gabriel compares to Majini from Kijuju. They split up and Pedro and Gabriel are seen arriving at Wossek.
Arriving at Wossek, Claire and Moira are ambushed by Gabriel, mistaking them as monsters. Claire disarms him and identifies herself to Gabriel and Pedro. Claire informs him that she and Moira awoke in the abandoned prison facility and tells him that Gina is dead. Gabriel informs them that their member Edward Thompson is also dead. To better understand the bracelets, Pedro cut off Edward's arm, much to Moira's disgust.
The Overseer welcomes them to the "brink of true fear". She explains that, as part of her experiment on fear, all captive members were injected with a special virus. Gabriel is visibly dismayed by this revelation, but quickly dismisses it as taunting. The four discuss an idea to escape the island using an abandoned helicopter. Gabriel and Pedro stay to fix the helicopter while Claire and Moira search for any necessary equipment.
After they get the fuel and battery to Gabriel, they hear a siren which the Overseer has activated in order to lure more Afflicted. They quickly return to the bar to stop the siren. Knowing that they are surrounded, the chainsaw-wielding Pedro panics. Claire tells him to calm down, but Pedro's panic rises sending his bracelet into the red. The Overseer taunts them as the now mutated Pedro attacts Claire. Moira manages to save Claire by tackling the mutated Pedro. Neil comes to the rescue right as the duo is overwhelmed by the tide of Afflicted, dropping a ladder allowing them to climb to safety. Neil asks about the creature and Claire replies that it was Pedro and informs him of the viral injections the group was given by the Overseer and how the virus triggered on Pedro when he got too scared.
The Afflicted catch up to the group but are stalled by a gate long enough for Claire and Moira to be boosted up a broken ladder. However, as Claire tries to help Neil up the Afflicted break through the gate. Neil tells them to go, he'll lure the Afflicted away and meet up with them later. Arriving at the tower, they see Natalia as she runs away. Claire manages to stop her from running away and Moira goes to talk to Natalia, introducing herself and stating that they are which she shows the bracelet on her left wrist and Natalia looked at her bracelet. After defeating the Vulcanblubber, they manage to get in the outside of the tower. until they saw Gabriel is piloting the helicopter stating that he will get off this island. However, it was a trap made by the Overseer as the controls of the helicopter becomes broken into pieces which causes him to lose control of the helicopter. The Overseer taunts Gabriel that he is cheating.
In the confusion, Natalia is abducted by a mysterious assailant. Gabriel panics when he finds out his bracelet is turning red, signifying his imminent mutation and stabs his own hand. The helicopter spins out of control and crashes to a nearby building. With no other choice but to keep moving, Claire had Moira follow her in hope to discover Natalia's whereabouts.
Natalia tells Barry that Moira is with her while she's heading to the tower which makes Barry decides to take her to the tower. On their way to the tower, Barry found Edward Thompson's corpse which he was from TerraSave and becomes disappointed to his daughter Moira not to get involved with them. However, Barry's vision becomes blurry due to the creatures's invisibility. After defeating creatures in the abandoned town, he now asks Natalia where are her parents as she replies that they died in Terragrigia incident and Barry becomes saddened and he assures that she is a tough girl. When they enter, someone been greeted Natalia in a creepier voice. Arriving at the abandoned building where Gabriel's helicopter got crashed in explosion, both were watched by someone. When Barry pushes the wrecked helicopter to the ground, they were attacked by a mutated Pedro. After defeating mutated Pedro and taking his drill, Barry and Natalia arrived at the place where she, Claire and Moira witnessed Gabriel's death and they found his burned corpse at one of the wrecked cars. They finally get inside the tower and goes to a storage room where a painting of Albert Wesker and the Overseer's physical appearance. Natalia tells Barry about how horrible and scary the woman in the painting is, before telling him that the woman next to Albert is non other than Alex Wesker. Barry was angrily dismayed after seeing two Weskers until a feminine-like-creature in a creepy voice manages to attack Barry from behind as it points on Natalia from its index finger calling her name as Barry looked at her and Natalia becomes scared horribly.
