Transcript

In 1998, a biohazard incident involving a man-made virus contaminated the entire town of Raccoon City. The town of 100,000 became ground zero for the world's single worst biohazard outbreak in the 20th century. The clinical naming of the event as the Raccoon City Incident does nothing to express the tragedy and horror that occurred in that idyllic American town.

During the incident, a rookie police officer named Leon Kennedy was caught up in the nightmare. He was attacked by human infected, a.k.a. zombies, and Umbrella-engineered bio-organic weapons.

Against all odds, he and a few other survivors were able to escape from the city. He regretted that he was only able to save so few people that day, and the events that transpired in Raccoon City etched themselves indelibly on his mind. From that point on he vowed he would do all he could to ensure the world would never see a tragedy like Raccoon City repeated.

Leon spoke very little of the incident afterwards. Government officials who heard of his survival tried to ask him about what happened out of curiosity, but he always avoided them. However, there was one high-ranking official that he did not avoid. Below are Leon's words as spoken to Adam Benford during a conversation they had years ago, before Benford became president.
---
I was just glad to have gotten out of there alive. It was all I could think about. Sure, my anger towards Umbrella helped get me through it, but it was only after I got out that I really started thinking about what I could do. It was hard for Claire and I to hold on to any kind of hope in a situation like that. I mean come on, I was just a rookie cop and she was a 19-year-old college student.

To tell you the truth, I even thought about ending it - several times, actually - with just a quick bullet to the head. But I didn't give up. Sherry needed me. She was a 10-year-old girl thrown into a hellish environment with monsters after her, so I had to pull myself together for her sake. She was our reason for not giving up - especially for Claire.

1998年、ラクーンシティで大規模なウィルス流失事故が発生した。10万人の市民がウィルスに感染し、ゾンビと化した史上最悪のバイオハザードは、通称「ラクーン事件」と呼ばれている。

新米警官としてラクーンシティに配属されたばかりのレオン・S・ケネディも、運悪くこの事件に巻き込まれた。ゾンビやB.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon)の攻撃にさらされながらも、レオンは数少ない生存者と共にラクーンシティから脱出を果たした。
しかし、ウィルスの感染や敵の襲来によって、レオンの目の前で多くの命が失われたことは、その後の彼に影響を与えた。ラクーン事件で体験した恐怖と悲劇がきっかけとなり、レオンはバイオハザードに対して強い憤りを抱くことになった。

その後、ほどなくして合衆国エージェントとなったレオンだが、彼がラクーン事件について自ら口を開くことはほとんどなかった。レオンがラクーンからの生還者であることを知る政府関係者たちは、興味本位から事件の状況を訊きたがったが、はぐらかすばかりであったと言う。

そんな中、政府高官でのちに大統領となるアダム・ベンフォードと数年前に行われた会話で、彼はラクーン事件に関して下記のように述懐している。

---

「あのときは、とにかく生きて街から出ることに精一杯だった。もちろん事件を引き起こしたアンブレラへの怒りを行動力にしていたのも事実だが、それに対してどうこう、と本格的に考えたのは、ラクーンから出たあとの話さ。

“何としてでも生きて脱出する”、ラクーンでは、それがすべてだった。
ただ、あの地獄の中でそういったモチベーション保ち続けることは、正直なところ俺とクレアの二人だけでは厳しかったと思う。そりゃそうさ。あのとき俺はただの新米警官で、クレアにいたっては19歳の女子大学生だったんだ。
現に、絶望して自分の頭に鉛弾をぶち込んでやろうかと思ったことは一度や二度じゃなかったよ。

それでも諦めなかった理由?

もちろん、シェリーの存在だ。
詳しいことは言わなくても分かるだろ。あの子は、まだ十歳を越えたばかりの年で、あのラクーン事件のど真ん中にいた。大人たちの汚い陰謀で勝手にキーパーソンに祭り上げられて、バケモノ共に追われる身になっていたんだ。シェリーを、あの地獄の外へ出してあげたかった。そのためには、俺たちが諦めるわけにはいかなかった。きっとクレアは、俺以上にそう思っていたはずさ」

In 1998, a large viral spill accident occured in Raccoon City.
Its 100 thousand citizens were infected with the virus and turned into zombies in the worst biohazard ever, commonly called the "Raccoon Incident".

Leon S. Kennedy, who had just been assigned to Raccoon City as a rookie cop, was also involved in this case by mischance.
Even while under attack from zombies and B.O.W.s (Bio Organic Weapon), Leon played an escape from Raccoon City along with a few of the survivors.
However, from the viral infection and enemy onslaught, many lives were lost in front of Leon, thenafter having an impact on him.
The tragedy and horror experienced in the Raccoon Incident became a trigger for Leon's supposed harborig of strong resentment against biohazards.

After that Leon became a US agent soon after, but there there is little he opens his mouth about regarding the Raccoon Incident.
Government officials got to know of Leon as a Raccoon survivor, and wanted to ask for the circumstanes of the case out of curiosity, but to say to have been there just begs the question.

Meanwhile, in a convention that took place a few years ago for senior government official Adam Benford to become the President, he recalled as shown below with respect to the Raccoon Incident.
