A CITY CRAWLING WITH CONFUSION

IMAGINE A NORMAL MID-WESTERN U.S. TOWN, BUILT AT THE BASE
OF A VAST FOREST. BUSINESS THRIVED HERE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE
ADVENT OF SEVERAL NEW INDUSTRIES. HECK, YOU CAN'T FIND A
MORE PEACEFUL WILDERNESS GETAWAY THAN RACCOON City.

THEN THE TROUBLE BEGAN.

AND IT LEADS BACK TO WHEN THE CORPORATION ARRIVED.

RUMORS BEGAN TO SPREAD, AND THE TOWN WAS OVERCOME WITH
ODD OCCURRENCES. UNIDENTIFIABLE CREATURES APPEARED OUT OF
NOWHERE, AND FATAL ACCIDENTS HAPPENED AT AN ALARMING RATE.
WORD GOT OUT ABOUT A SEVERE ACCIDENT AT A MOUNTAIN LAB. NO
ONE IN TOWN KNEW WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO THEIR QUAINT TOWN.

THE RACCOON POLICE DEPARTMENT, IN AN EFFORT TO CALM THE
GROWING FEAR AMONG LOCALS, RECRUITED SEVERAL NEW OFFI-
CERS. LEON S. KENNEDY IS ONE OF THE PROMISING NEW RECRUITS.
AS LEON PREPARES TO JOIN HIS NEW UNIT, HE ATTEMPTS TO CON-
TACT THE CAPTAIN WHO HIRED HIM, BUT HAS NO LUCK REACHING
HIM. UNFAZED, HE CONTINUES INTO RACCOON CITY' TO HIS NEW JOB.

AT THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN, A DISTRAUGHT CLAIRE REDFIELD
SEARCHES FOR HER MISSING BROTHER, CHRIS. CLAIRE BEGINS HER
SEARCH IN RACCOON City, THE LAST KNOWN LOCATION OF HER
BROTHER NEARLY TWO MONTHS AGO, ONLY TO LEARN ABOUT THE
"ACCIDENT" IN THE FOREST. IS CHRIS STILL IN RACCOON CITY'?

THE OVERWHELMING WORLD OF HORROR AND DESPAIR THEY BOTH
ARE ABOUT TO ENTER...

RACCOON CITY'S ONLY HOPE

LEON S. KENNEDY
------------------------------
LEON IS AN IDEALISTIC ROOKIE COP. HE BURNS WITH THE NEED
TO PROTECT AND TO SERVE, AND LIFE AS A CADET WAS AN EYE-
OPENING EXPERIENCE. WHILE RECKLESS AND BRASH, LEON IS CER-
TAINLY NOT AS NAIVE AS HIS DEMEANOR WOULD SUGGEST. HE IS
HIGHLY QUALIFIED FOR HIS NEW JOB WITH THE RACCOON POLICE
        
ADA WONG
------------------------------
LEON STUMBLES UPON THIS MYSTERIOUS WOMAN WHO IS QUITE
SECRETIVE YET, AT THE SAME TIME, A PROFESSIONAL AND SKILLED
INVESTIGATOR. SHE CAN ALSO COME ACROSS AS CONDESCENDING,
AND HAS A TENDENCY TO TALK DOWN TO THOSE SHE DEEMS INFERIOR
TO HERSELF.
        
CLAIRE
------------------------------
CLAIRE IS A LIGHT-HEARTED, ARTICULATE MODERN WOMAN WHILE
SHE CAN BE A BIT OF A TOMBOY AT TIMES, SHE IS SOMEWHAT WILD
SELF-CONFIDENT AND EXTROVERTED, CLAIRE IS TYPICALLY THE FIRST
PERSON TO TRY SOMETHING MANY OTHERS WOULD NOT.

SHERRY BIRKIN
------------------------------
A LONELY AND INSECURE 12-YEAR-OLD, SHERRY IS QUITE MATURE
FOR HER AGE. SHE IS VERY SHY AND WHEN SHE SPEAKS, SHE LACKS
SELF-CONFIDENCE AND ALWAYS HAS THE FEELING SHE IS LOST.
SHERRY'S PARENTS ARE TOO WRAPPED UP IN THEIR WORK TO HEED
THE EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF THEIR CHILD.


CAN'T SURVIVE? 
TRY THIS

1. ENEMIES CAN BE KNOCKED DOWN: ENEMIES WILL PALL
AFTER TAKING SEVERAL SHOTS TO THE BODY. BUT AFTER THEY
COME TO, THEY WILL BE BACK UP AND AFTER YOU IN AN INSTANT.
