Transcript

The Gionne family is well known and respected throughout Europe for their successful export-import business. Her grandmother being from the Travis family, the founders of Tricell, has endowed Excella with quite a noble and storied lineage. Blessed with model-like beauty and raised in such an aristocratic family has led to being her haughty towards those around her, especially men.

But it was neither Excella's looks or family background that got her to where she is today.

Gifted with a keen intellect and inheriting her father's business acumen, Excella quickly breezed through school and enrolled in a university at a young age. There she majored in genetic engineering, and her talents were recognized by her grandmother's family. With her connections she was able to enter Tricell's pharmaceutical division at the age of eighteen.

Although she was a gifted member of Tricell's founding family, she was still a Gionne, an offshoot of the famed Travis family. Even with all the research teams at Tricell's disposal, she was only given one.

Excella viewed this act as a slight.

While still feeling indignant over this affront, she was approached by Albert Wesker.

Wesker's interest in Excella was piqued by her intelligence and character. It was at this time he provided her with all the information he had concerning the T-Virus and other research. Excella was now armed with the tools to make the advances to her career that she desired.

She used the information and technology she obtained from Wesker to advance Tricell's bioweapons division exponentially.

In a fortunate turn for Tricell, Umbrella, who had previously dominated the bioweapons market, had gone bankrupt, greatly increasing Tricell's sway in the area.

Thanks to Excella's efforts in expanding Tricell's market share, she was given more of a voice within the company. Before long, she was making key decisions that would affect the fortunes of the pharmaceutical division.

This was precisely as Wesker had intended.

Excella then set her sights on the position of CEO of the Tricell Africa Division. Her adroit use of flattery and intimidation soon landed her that powerful position.

It is now believed that it was Wesker who suggested Excella take over Tricell Africa. He exploited her romantic interest in him, and was able to use both her and Tricell Africa to further his Uroboros Plan.
Excella's first order of business as Tricell Africa's CEO was to restore the abandoned Umbrella Africa Research Facility. As the facility where research on the Progenitor Virus had been carried out, its use in the completion of the Uroboros Plan was vital.

Following the facility's restoration, Ricardo Irving was employed to sell bioweapons in order to secure funding for the research being carried out on the Uroboros Virus.

As the Uroboros Plan neared completion, Excella began to fancy herself as the queen in the new world order that would follow the plan's execution. Unfortunately for her, those dreams were dashed when the man that was to be her king injected her with the Uroboros Virus.

エクセラが育ったギオネ家は、ヨーロッパでも名の通った貿易商の一家である。また、祖母はトライセルの創業者一族であるトラヴィス家の出身であるため、由緒ある血筋の一族の出身と言える。名家で生まれ育ったその出自ゆえにプライドが高く、さらにはその美貌から周りの人間(特に男性)を見下す傾向が強い。

だが、ただ見た目が良いだけの富豪令嬢であれば、彼女が今の地位につくことはなかっただろう。エクセラの本質は、その明晰な頭脳にある。父親譲りの経営の才能に加え、飛び級で入学した大学では遺伝子工学を専攻、その才能は祖母の実家が経営するトライセルからも高く評価され、わずか18歳の時にトライセル製薬部門の一員となることとなった。

だが、いくら創業者一族出身で才能豊かとは言え、彼女自身は傍流のギオネ家の出身である。社内で何十もある研究チームの1つを与えられたにすぎなかった。人の風下に立つことを良しとしない彼女の性格を考えると、これは相当な屈辱だったに違いない。

そのような時に彼女に接近してきたのがアルバート・ウェスカーである。ウェスカーは、彼女の才能とその気性に目を付け、自らが持つt-ウィルスなどの情報をエクセラに提供した。これらは、エクセラの確かな武器となった。彼女がもたらした情報と技術により、トライセルの生物兵器開発は飛躍的な発展を遂げた。

さらに、生物兵器市場でのトップシェアを誇っていたアンブレラの崩壊という幸運も重なり、トライセルは順調にシェアを拡大していったのである。そして、それは開発における最大の功労者であるエクセラの発言力も同時に高めていき、いつしか、彼女の言動は製薬部門全体の方針さえも左右するようになっていた。これは、ウェスカーの狙い通りの結果でもあった。

次にエクセラは、トライセル・アフリカ支社の支社長のポストを要求。生物兵器事業を材料に甘言、恫喝を巧みに使い分け、まんまとこのポストを手中にするのであった。このアフリカ支社長への就任劇がウェスカーの差し金であったことは、想像に難くない。ウェスカーは、エクセラが持つ自身への恋愛感情を利用し、「ウロボロス計画」にエクセラとトライセル・アフリカ支社を利用しようとしていたのだ。

彼女がアフリカ支社長に就任してまず行ったのは、すでに遺棄されていた「アンブレラ・アフリカ研究所」を復活させることであった。この研究所は、アンブレラにより始祖ウィルス研究のために建設されたもので、ウロボロス計画完遂のためには絶対に必要な施設である。研究所復活後は、手駒の一つであるアーヴィングを用いて生物兵器の売買を行い、研究資金の確保をしつつウロボロス・ウィルスの研究を行っていった。

そして、ウロボロス計画は最終段階を迎える。

彼女自身は計画終了後に訪れる新世界での女王の地位を夢見ていたが、王となる男、ウェスカーの手によりウロボロス・ウィルスを投与されてしまう。ウロボロス・ウィルスはエクセラの遺伝子を拒絶すると暴走を開始。体を突き破ったウィルスにより巨大なウロボロスに変貌した彼女は、その生涯を終えた。

The Gionne family Excella grew up in was the family of a well-known trading merchant in Europe.
Moreover, since her grandmother was from the Travis family, the founding family of TRICELL, it could be said that she's from a family of venerable lineage.
She is proud because of her birth; born and raised in a prestigious family with a tendency to look down on those around her (men in particular) with her formidable beauty.

However, she didn't simply take her current position because she was an attractive heiress.
Excella's true nature is in her brilliant intellect.

In addition to her talent for management inherited from her father, she majored in genetic engineering at university where she skipped years, and her talents were valued by TRICELL operated by her grandmother's family, and she became a member of the TRICELL Pharmaceuticals Department at the mere age of 18.

However, despite how gifted she was and coming from the founding family, she was still from the minor Gionne's.
She was given only one of dozens of in-house research teams.
Given her personality and the fact that she doesn't settle for standing under the lee of others, this must've been a considerable humiliation.

That was when she was approached by Albert Wesker.
Wesker had his eyes on her talent and nature and provided Excella with information, such as on the t-Virus he possessed.

These became Excella's surefire weapons.
With the information and technology she brought, TRICELL's bioweapons development achieved rapid development.

Furthermore, the blessing of the collapse of Umbrella, who boasted the top share in the bioweapons market, occurred at the same time, and TRICELL favorably expanded their own share.
It also simultaneously elevated the influence of Excella; the greatest individual who rendered distinguished services in development, and she gradually came to control even the policies of the entire Pharmaceuticals Department.
This result was Wesker's aim.

Next, Excella required the managing director position of the TRICELL Africa Branch.
With the findings of the bioweapons operation and her skillful use of flattery and extortion, she successfully obtained this post.

It's easy to imagine Wesker instigated her inauguration drama to Africa Branch managing director.
Using Excella's feelings of love, Wesker utilized Excella and the TRICELL Africa Branch for his "Uroboros Project."

She took office as the Africa Branch managing director and first restored the previously abandoned "Umbrella Africa Laboratory."
This laboratory was built by Umbrella for Progenitor Virus research and was an absolutely essential facility for the success of the Uroboros Project.
After the laboratory's restoration, she secured research funds for studying the Uroboros Virus while marketing bioweapons using one of her pawns, Irving.

Then the Uroboros Project greeted its final stage.

Although she dreamed of status as queen of the coming new world after the project, she was administered the Uroboros Virus at the hands of the man who was to become her king, Wesker.
The Uroboros Virus began to go out of control when it rejected Excella's genes. She transformed into a giant Uroboros as a result of the virus, which burst through her body and ended her entire life.

Analysis

The Japanese version of the file directly mentions that the injection of Uroboros resulted in her death, something that was omitted in the localized file (although nonetheless heavily implied).
