General Synopsis of Resident Evil (Biohazard)
The first installments of the franchise mainly focused on a group of people fighting the Umbrella Corporation, a pharmaceutical company that develops the T-Virus and other mutagens for their secret research on “bio-organic weapons.” Mutagens can transform humans into zombies, as well as mutate other animals and plants into hideous monsters.
The original game and many installments in the franchise are set in Raccoon City, a fictional city in and around the Midwest. The city and its outlying areas are home to several bioengineering laboratories belonging to the Umbrella Corporation, which develop viruses intended for use in biological warfare. One of the labs, unnamed throughout the video game series and referred to as “The Hive” in film adaptations, is located below Raccoon City and is where the T-Virus is developed.
