(Capcom's primary storyline)
Henry Travis was born in the 19th century, one of seven children and inheritors to Travis Enterprises.
He spent thirty-five years exploring Africa and writing his 72 part encyclopedia, Natural History Conspectus. His older brother, according to later beliefs, spread a rumour to the Scientific community that his brother's notes were inaccurate and filled with creative licensing. Henry died two years later after a deep depression connected to his book's failure.
Travis Enterprises -according to beliefs- spread this rumour so no one else would take advantage of the book to exploit precious minerals detailed by Henry. With Travis Enterprises the only company believing in the book, no other company could pose a danger to their business.
