Plant 42 was a large plant infused with the t-Virus, and was originally part of an experiment on botanic subjects by Umbrella researcher Dr. Henry Sarton. The name location that the plant was growing on was "Point 42" of the dormitory (Plant 42 would literally mean "Plant at Point 42").

HistoryEdit

Plant 42 was created in May, 1998 at some point after the t-Virus was released. It may have been infected by contaminated water, directly infected by Dr. Henry Sarton during the accident, or both.[1] Plant 42 proved to be completely unique, incomparable to any other plant-based test subjects. Its roots buried deep through the wood and concrete in the residence and began feeding on the chemical-rich water of the Aqua Ring, likely promoting further growth.[2] Expanding its vines across the building, it used cracks in the flooring to attack passing staff members, feeding on their blood.[1][excerpt 1]

By May 21, Plant 42 had completely taken over a room of the dormitory. Able to manipulate doorknobs and move its vines, Plant 42 captured and drained several researchers of their blood when they tried to destroy it.[2] It was discovered by Sarton's team that Plant 42 was sensitive to a chemical known as UMB № 20, otherwise known as V-JOLT. A plan was devised to destroy it, involving feeding it directly to the roots.[2] However, this plan could not be accomplished, either due to the continued deterioration of the researchers' health from t-Virus infection or because of the escaped Neptunes in the flooded Aqua Tank chamber. Plant 42 was finally destroyed on the night of July 24 when S.T.A.R.S. searched the dormitory building.[3]

Legacy Edit

As a result of the research staff's continued work during the outbreak, Umbrella was able to receive research data on the Plant, based on the 'Plant 42 Report'. The company soon after developed the smaller, more mobile "Plant 43", which was in development in Raccoon City prior to its own viral outbreak.

  1. Excerpt from Inside of BIO-HAZARD, p.51: "クレイウィルスε型は、 動物のみならず植物にもその効力を発揮する。 アンブレラ社研究員のヘンリー・サートンが好奇から、 寄宿舎にあった観用植物にクレイウィルスε型を注入したところ、 この種の植物に対して強力な影響があることを発見したのだ。 サートンはこの実験体をプラント42と名付けて観察を続けたが、 数日経つと手に負えないほど巨大化し、 結局そのまま放置された。 プラント42はその後もとどまることなく急成長を続け、 まるで動物のように活発に動き、 長いツタで人間を襲う怪物になってしまった。 プラント42はラクーン施設の寄宿舎中に根を張りめぐらせ、 通りかかった研究員をたびたび捕まえて吸血していたという。獲物の認識方法や意志の有無など、 植物をベースとしたBOWとして、 未確認かつ興味深い部分が多い研究材料だったが、 残念なことにSTARSによってプラント42は処分された。"
