Further notes

This Tyrant, code named "T-002", was part of the Arklay Laboratory's quest to develop the "ultimate life form".


Umbrella's attempts to develop a B.O.W. emphasizing combat ability gave birth to this, and it exhibited a certain measure of completion. The development staff were evidently proud of their creation, naming it after the very mutagen used to create it - "Tyrant". Exceptional physical capabilities and the intelligence to obey and execute orders were realized upon its design. It was due to be commercialized after completing the final "test" of the combat model against veteran soldiers.[2]

During the events of the "Mansion Incident", Albert Wesker tried to program it to slay the remaining members of Raccoon City's Special Tactics And Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.). As the Tyrant awoke from its slumber, it proceeded to impale him first, seriously injuring him.[3] With the help of Brad Vickers, S.T.A.R.S. officers Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine destroyed it on the rooftop with a rocket launcher.[4]
