Transcript

I, Ozwell E. Spencer, founder of Umbrella as well as its chief executive officer, hereby proclaim myself as rules of all mankind. Everyone shall prostrate themselves before me as they once did for the ancient false gods.

At least, that was what my destiny should have been.

But I did not become a god; I could not sever my ties to my own weak humanity.

Instead my body is being destroyed by this damned disease, the disease of age. It has carved wrinkles in my face like a well-weathered canyon, and my arms are like the thin withered branches of a dying tree. Age has even deprived me of the use of my legs.

The only chance I'll ever have of becoming a god and shaping humanity's destiny, is to stop this disease from continuing to ravage my body.

I believe there's a saying about realizing the joys of life when one is at death's doorstep.

Sayings like that are for the weak who are going to die. They attempt to mask their feats with pithy aphorisms. Mortals can't comprehend what life means for those who death is not a concern. The ignorant are fond of making generalizations to include those who would not be party to their pedantic musings.

I will undo this unjust travesty done to me by time, and I will present myself as the perfect being that will rule over all mankind.

I will give them a new set of commandments to govern their lives.

All that remains is to find the key to immortal life!

The virus manufactured by Umbrella is that key. It suppresses telomere shortening which negates the function that limits cell division. Somewhere in that process is the key to immortality. If the process could be perfected, that key would be mine.

I have the means available to me. I can realize my ambitions, thanks to Alex.

I lost much in human capital following Umbrella's bankruptcy, but I still have Alex, the best and brightest of them all, and the last of my children.

I have faith that if anyone can find a cure for the ailment of time that keeps me from assuming my role as the head of mankind, it is Alex.

Alex will find a way.

私はオズウェル・E・スペンサー。アンブレラの創始者であり、支配者。
人類を高みへといざなう指導者。私の名は神と同義といっても過言ではない。

そうなるはずであった。

だが、私にはできなかった。人の中で蛇のようにからまる鎖を断ち切ることを。

私は侵されている。老いという病魔に。
顔に深く刻まれたしわ、細く枯れ木のように衰えた腕、自らの体も支えることのできぬ脚。
すべてがこの病魔のせいだ。

私は決断する。
人類を高みへといざなう高貴な使命は、一時中断せねばなるまい。
まずは、この病魔を食い止めねば。

俗人は言う。
人は死あればこそ、生の喜びを知ると。

だが、それは死を持つ者の言葉でしかない。死を恐れるゆえのごまかしにすぎない。
死を持つ者が、持たぬ者の意義を知ることはできない。
それを知らずして、なぜ人の意義を断じることができるだろうか。

老いを駆逐し、人類をいざなうにふさわしい健全な体を手に入れる。
そして人類に新たな価値観を示すことも、私に託された使命であろう。

私は持っている。不老不死への扉を開く鍵を。
アンブレラが研究し作り出したウィルスの中にはテロメアの消滅を抑制し、無限の細胞分裂をもたらすものもある。
その不死の命をもたらす無限連鎖を、この手にすることができれば。

そして、私にはある。それを実現させる力が。
アンブレラ崩壊後、多くの人材が野へ下った。
だが、本当に優秀な一握りの者は私のもとにある。我が子、アレックスもその一人だ。

私は信じている。
アレックスならば、この病を根絶する方法を見つけ出してくれると。

それは紛れもない真実である。
