Name: Ashley Graham
Asg: 20
Daughter of the United States President

She was kidnapped by an unidentified group while on her way home from her 
university.  The kidnapper's motives are still unknown.  Although there's 
reliable information that the perpetrator is an insider.  Only a handful of 
people know about this kidnapping.  It's been kept under wraps mostly due to 
the fact that we can't determine who the traitor is.  The guys in intelligence 
say they have reliable information that Ashley's been sighted somewhere in 
Europe.  But until we find out who the insider is, I don't know what to 
believe.  It could be a ploy.  We have found very few leads as to the 
whereabouts of Ashley.  But members of the Secret Service and anyone else 
related to Ashley are being question by an investigation team.  Even active 
agents are being investigated for any information.  It's just a matter of time 
before the kidnapper is exposed.

Recently there has been information that a United States government agent is 
here investigating the village.  Do not let this American agent get in contact 
with the prisoner.  For those of you not yet informed, the prisoner is being 
held in an old house beyond the farm. We will transfer the prisoner to a more 
secure location in the valley when we are ready. The prisoner is to stay there 
until further notice. Meanwhile, do not let the American agent near the 
prisoner.  We do not know how the American government found out about our 
village. But we are investigating.  However, I feel that this intrusion at 
this particular time is not just a coincidence.  I sense a third party other 
than the United States government involved here.  My fellow men, stay alert!

As instructed by Lord Saddler, I have the agent in confinement, alive.  Why 
keep him alive?  I do not fully understand what the Lord's intentions are.  I 
would, however, think he'd keep them separate; not confine them together as 
has been ordered.  I don'texpect Luis would trust a stranger but if by chance 
they did cooperate, the situation could get a bit more complicated.  If for 
some reason, an unknown third party is involved, I don't think they'd let a 
chance like this slip by.  But maybe it's all Lord Saddler's ploy - leaving 
use vulnerable so that the third party will surface, if they even exist that 
is...  It's an unlikely possibility, but if a prowler is already amongst use, 
then our plans could be ruined.  I guess the Lord thinks it's worth the risk, 
if we're able to stop whatever conspiracy is at work.  At any rate, it's the 
Lord's call.  We will trust his judgment as always.

Regarding the two fugitives, the apprehension of Luis is our top priority; the 
American agent a distant second.  What Luis stole from us is far more 
important than the girl.  Unless we get it back, the girl will become useless 
to us.  We must get it back to execute our plan to the end.  If it gets in the 
wrong hands, the world would become a totally different place from what Lord 
Saddler has envisioned.  At all costs, we musn't let that happen.  
Nevertheless, we're not letting go of the girl.  To ensure that the agent does 
not get to her, I have locked the church door where the girl is being held.  
Anyone who needs access to the church must first get approval by Lord Saddler.  
There is a key beyond the lake but it should be safe now that the "Del Lago" 
has been awakened by our Lord.  No one will get acros that lake alive.  Plus, 
our same blood courses through the agent's veins.  It'll be just a matter of 
time before he joins us.  Once he does, there will be nobody else left that 
will come looking for the girl.

There's an important item hidden in the falls.  If you are able to get it, you 
might be able to get Ashley out of the church.  But I'll warn you, the route 
to the church isn't a walk in the park by any means.  They've deployed what's

       (0100A)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

The whereabouts of Sera are still unknown.  Most likely he's using an old 
secret passage taught to him by his grandfather who used to hunt in this 
region long ago.  I'm pretty certain that he's hiding our property somewhere 
in the forest.  If his grandfather was still alive, I would have used him to 
find Sera... But how did he find out about the egg injected into his body?
- And the fact that he was able to remove it before it hatched is concerning.  
Another factor that concerns me is that Sera escaped without property just 
before the American agent arrived.  I don't believe that was just a 
coincedence.  There has to be another player involved in this.  In order to 
settle this whole situation, we have to capture Sera and wait for the effects 
of the drug to wear off before we inject him with another egg.  Once this is 
done, whoever is behind all of this will surface.  Nobody shall interfere with 
our plans.  Those who do shall suffer severe consequences.

       (0100B)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

Just a while ago, I was informed by Lord Saddler that our men has shot down a 
United States military helicopter.  There shouldn't be any more outside 
interference for a while now.  Unless the United States government determines 
who the traitor is, they can only initiate very small covert operations.  We 
must use this time to our advantage and recapture the girl.  The two Americans 
can only get out of our territory by using one of two routes.  This is where 
we will stop them.  We shall make use of our forces to the greatest degree.  
We will deploy a large number of Ganados in one of the routes to ensure that 
they do not slip by us.  For the other route we shall leave the task to El 
Gigante.  Whichever route they take, the agent will never leave here alive.  
Not with the girl at least.

       (0100C)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

I clearly underestimated the American agent's capability.  He's still alive.  
I thought that we could wait until the egg hatched, but at this rate, he could 
destroy the whole village before it does.  We must take care of this nuisance.  
We shall change our priorities - for the time being, we will cease our hunt 
for Luis and ambush the two Americans.  There is a building used to enlighten 
betrayers just beyond the point where you get off the lift.  It's a perfect 
place for ambushing them.  If all else fails, they still would need to face me 
in order to get past the last gate that leads out of the village.  For only 
before my sight will the gate open.

I have confirmation that Sera has entered the castle.  Why would he return 
during his escape leaves me to question his motives.  But we must seize this 
moment to capture him.  We will get the other two Americans after we apprehend 
Sera.  It appears he took some vaccines when he stole our "sample.'  The 
vaccines we can do without but we must retrieve the "sample" for it is our 
life blood.  I feel there is somebody else or some other group involved in 
this whole affair.  If the "sample" were to get into the hands of that other 
entity, the world which we seek to create will not come.  We must apprehend 
Sera as quickly as possible.

       (0100F)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

There are some parasites that have the ability to control their hosts.  It's 
basic knowledge among biologists but not much is known as to how the parasites 
do it.  Studying these parasites specifically might reveal some clues to as to 
how the powers of the Las Plagas work.  And perhaps provide more insight on 
the victimes of the Las Plagas, the Los Ganados.  Here is a list of some of 
the parasites that have the ability to manipulate the behavioral patterns of 
their host:

Dicrocoelium - Once the larvae of this parasite migrates to the ant's 
esophagus, it alters the behavior of the ant.  When the temperature drops in 
the evening,  the infected any climbs to the top of a plant and clamps onto a 
leaf using its mandible.  It stays there immobile until the next morning, 
placing the ant where it's most vulnerable to be eaten by a browsing herbivore 
such as sheep.  One could conclude that the parasite is manipulating the 
host's behavior to its way into the body of its definitive host.

Galactosomum - The larvae of this parasite makes its home inside the brain of 
a fish such as the yellowtail and the parrot bass.  Once infected, the fish 
make their way up to the water's surface where they'll swim until eaten by 
seabirds.  Once again, the peculiar behavior can only be explained by the 
parasite's desire to get into the bodies of the seabirds.

Leucochlordium - This parasite's sporcysts develop in the snail's tentacles.  
The sporocysts are vivid in color and pulsate continually somewhat like a 
worm.  Surprisingly the infected snail makes its way to the top of a plant 
where it is most visible to the eyes of birds, therefore more likely to be 
eaten.  Once eaten by a bird, the parasite will complete its metamorphosis 
into an adult.

       (0100G)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

For many years the Salazar family has served as the castellans of this castle.  
However, not everything is bright, for my ancestry has a dark past.  Long ago 
there once was a religious group that had deep roots in this region called the 
Los Illuminados.  Unjustly however, the first castellan of the castle took 
away their rights and powers.  As a follower of this religion and as the 8th 
Castellan, I felt that it was my duty as well as my responsibility to atone 
for that sin.  I knew the best way to atone for that sin was to give power 
back to those who we once took it away from, the Los Illunimados.  As expected 
it took a little time, but we were able to rejuvenate the once sealed Las 
Plagas.  With this success I was one step closer to the revival of the Los 
Illuminados.  The reason why I released the Las Plagas from deep under the 
castle and gave them to Lord Saddler was not only to repay for the sins of my 
ancestors but I felt certain that the Lord would make better use of this power 
to help save the world.  To save those that have sinned with the power of the 
Las Plagas and to cleanse the their souls creating a world without sinners.  
The way it was meant to be.  Once cleansed, they would become one of the many 
Ganados where they will find their reason to live.  And after the Lord has 
succeeded in creating the world in which he has envisioned, then the sins of 
my Salazar family will be atoned for.

There seems to be a female intruder among us.  We believe she's connected with 
Sera.  We also believe that she was the one who removed the gg injected into 
Sera before it hatched. She may have had him retirve the "sample" before the 
American agent's arrival.  It's obvious that her objective is the "sample".  
We must get to her before she is able to reestablish contact with Sera.  
There's also reason to believe that she's working  for somebody. We need her 
alive for interrogation.  The female should be able to answer all our 
questions. After we have captured her, Sera will no longer be of any concern.  
As long as we retrieve the "sample", you may dispose of him as you see fit.

       (0100I)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

Knowing that Sr. Ramon Salazar has no family, Lord Saddler must have used his 
strong faith in the Los Illuminados to his advantage to talk Sr. Salazar into 
undoing the seal of the Las Plagas once done by his ancestor.  Sr. Salazar 
would never do such a thing unless he was in some way being used unknowingly.  
I should have sensed the Lord's dirty scheme sooner.  I feel I'm partly 
responsible for all of this.  I have no idea as to what the Lord is planning 
but Sr. Salazar was just being used.  It is too late now however, Sr. Salazar 
has already taken the Plaga into his body.  There is no turning back once the 
Plaga has turned into an adult in the body.  The Plaga parasite will not die 
unless the host dies.  There's no cure.  Perhaps, Sr. Salazar may have been 
vaguely aware of the Lord's plan all along.  But it's so hard to tell.  
Nevertheless, there's nothing I can do about it now.  I have served the 
Salazar family for generations.  I am prepared to continue my services until 
the very end.

As you may have heard, Luis Sera has been disposed of by Lord Saddler.  The 
"sample" is back where it belongs.  I had hoped that the whole matter could be 
resolved without troubling the Lord.  However, as long as the "sample" is safe 
we can all rejoice, for our time is nearly at hand.  Now that the "sample" is 
back in our safe hands, it'll be a bit more difficult for that troublesome 
woman to get it.  In light of all this, it's unfortunate that Sera had to go.  
Like us, he would have had a bright future if only he had shown more fiath in 
our beliefs.  As for the other two Americans, the Lord has left the matter in 
our hands.  We must not disappoint the Lord.  We shall capture Ashley and take 
her to the Lord and dispose of the American agent.

the ritual, those of you who feel inclined can attend to our American friend.  
We should be able to hold off our friend for at least a little while by 
jamming the gears in the clock tower with something.  I think if we jam the

       (0100L)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

The first castellan buried the Las Plagas deep underground below the castle to 
hide their very existence.  But when Salazar released the Las Plagas, no one 
thought he could bring them back to life.  Because when Salazar found them 
they were all just fossilized remains.  Everyone knew that the parasitic 
organisms could not survive without their hosts.  That they couldn't sustain 
life on their own.  But when Salazar and his men excavated the remains, it 
almost appeared as if the Las Plagas were just waiting to be discovered so 
that they could resurrect.  Several years later, unexplainable convulsions 
started occurring among the villagers who helped with the excavation of the 
Las Plagas.  Then one day, all of a sudden, these villagers turned into 
violent savages. They later found out it was caused by the Las Plagas.  
Although they appeared fossilized, they were able to survive the long years by 
lying in a dormant state at the cellular level remaining in a spore-like form.
Apparently during the excavation, the villagers inhaled the spores and within 
their bodies the parasites became active again.  This is how the Las Plagas 
were resurrected.  Even as I;m writing, the excavation of the Las Plagas 
continues.  God only knows how many of these Plagas have been resurrected.  
Not to mention the countless number of Ganados that have been created.  Their 
inhumane activity must be put to an end.  If they are not stopped, people 
around the world could turn into victims of this crazy cult organization.

Once a Plaga egg hatches, it's nearly impossible to remove it from the body.  
But if it's before it hatches, then it can be nautralized by medication.  If 
it does hatch you might be able to get it out by surgery before it turns to an 
adult.  But it won't be easy.  There's a high chance you won't survive the 
operation.  As far as I know the girl was injected with the egg before you.  
Her time is ticking.  You should prepare yourself for the worst case scenario.

The hideous creates such as the El Gigante and the Novistadors are merely by-
products of the diabolical and inhumane experiments conducted on the specimens 
that were once human.  But there'son type of creature that clearly 
distinguishes itself from the rest.  These creatures are called Regenerators.  
Regeneratoes have a superior metabolism that allows them to regenerate their 
lost body parts at incredible speeds.  I've never seen anything like it... It 
is this characteristic that makes them almost invincible to conventional 
weapons.  But like any living creature, there's a way to kill it.  Apparently 
there are Plagas that live in its body somewhat like leeches.  To stop its 
regeneration process, these leech-like Plagas must be located and then 
destroyed.  But they can't be seen with the naked eye.  They can only be 
located through thermal imaging.  As far as I know, most of the Regererators 
most a number of these leech-like Plagas.  The kill the Regenerators, each one  
of these leech-like Plagas must be killed.

conscience of their hosts.  If chosen poorly, they could betray me.  I need

       (0100Q)      \--------------------------------------------------------o

I'll report my findings about the Plagas here. The Plagas have 3 distinct 
characteristics.

1. As mentioned previously, the Plagas have the ability to manipulate the 
behavioral patterns of their hosts.

2.  The Plagas are social organisms. By this I mean that instead of living 
individually, they live in perfect social harmony. It is believed that they 
have a collective intelligence.  This type of behavior can be seen among 
insects such as bees and ants. However this kind of social behavior is rarely 
seen among parasitic organisms.  Perhaps it was a learned behavior by the 
Plagas.  I'm finding out if this has any relationship with their first 
characteristic.

3.  The Plagas have exceptional adaptation skills.  They are able to live off 
many kinds of organisms by creating a symbiotic environment quickly. This 
ability, when combined with their social behaviors, allows them to interact 
intelligently between hosts regardless of the host organism.  

I am ashamed to admit that my pure fascination with the Plagas, in hindsight, 
has blinded me to the true research objectives of the Los Illuminados.  Even 
with the knowledge that Saddler was going to abuse the results of these 
experiments, I could not pull myself away from my research. As a result, I am 
just as responsible for this whole mess as he is. I see now that I was wrong, 
but can I stop their evil plans alone...?

It turns out that old man Saddler wasn't buying me from the start.  Even 
though I succeeded in kidnapping Ashley, I sort of sensed this when Saddler 
didn't completely let me in the loop.  Under the circumstances, I had no other 
alternative bu to call for her assistance.  Perhaps she knew this was the way 
it was going to turn out all along... My guess is that her ultimate goal might 
be different from Wesker's and mine.  This is just the perfect opoporunity to 
find out.  And after I get rid of Leon and retrieve the sample, I'll put her 
in a bodybag along with Leon and send them both to Wesker.

From the initial stages of the research, we have been searching for a safe and 
practical removal of the Plaga.  Ironically, it turns out that the real 
objective of this research was not to find a way to remove the Plagas from the 
infected persons but to find a way so that the Plaga could not be removed from 
the body easily.  In the end, we were able to find out that the Plagas could 
be removed only by exposing them to a special radiation.  THe only drawback 
with this method is that is is a very painful procedure.  Since the Plaga 
attaches itself to the nerves, there is a possibility that it may impair the 
consciousness of the host.  Another fact that must be mentioned is that once 
the Plaga grows into an adult, the removal procedure could kill the host.  But 
perhaps death isn't so bad when you think about the alternative.

The real power of the United States lies in three areas.  The Justice 
Department, the Administrative bodies, and the Military.  In order to take 
control of these areas, we must influence the minds of the people who advise 
the President.  After this is done, the rest of the departments will quickly 
fall under our sway.  If by chance the United States were to figure out our 
plan, the damage caused should be minimal.  We will still be able to conquer 
the country as planned using our backup plan.  Once we control the country, we 
will use their international influence to our advantage.  The rest of the 
world will fall swiftly.  As already stated, if our first plan doesn't go as 
smoothly as expected, we'll proceed with out secondary plan.  By sending in 
our "special" forces we will infiltrate the country from within.  Fear and 
chaos will spread through the nation like a virus.  It'll only be a matter of 
time before the country loses its stability.  At that time, when they're most 
vulnerable, we will strike.  Rejoice my brethren; the world shall soon be 
cleansed.
