This is the main hall in the Umbrella Research Facility. No enemies are in the hall, so it could be considered a save location. A typewriter is in the hall, which gives the player the opportunity to save progress.
The room is dimly lit, with a few torches to give light. Staircases leading to the higher levels of the room are present. An old, crimson carpet covers the stairs, and starts at the front door. On the second floor, several doors are present. Paintings are on the walls.
There is a statue of a woman, above the base of a scale. Two statues can be placed on the scales. On the first floor, is a huge portrait of the deceased Dr. James Marcus, the first director of the facility. Marcus was assassinated by William Birkin and Albert Wesker, on the orders of Ozwell E.Spencer.
Upon entering the room for the first time from the sewer, a scene will play where Billy and Rebecca look around and look at the painting of Marcus. Then the mysterious man explains to Birkin and Wesker his motives for revenge.
