The t-Virus (short for tyrant Virus) was the name of several closely related strains of artificially created viruses designed as weaponized versions of the Progenitor Virus developed by the international pharmaceutical enterprise, Umbrella, Inc. for use in military applications.
Signs and SymptomsEdit
Upon infection of the t-Virus, a host will begin to show signs of mutation through several symptoms. Early signs of infection include:
- high fever
- intense itching
- insatiable hunger
Furthermore, it is known that necrosis occurs before complete mental degeneration. Late stage symptoms include:
- deterioration of muscle fibers
- paralysis of pain sensation
- metabolic activation
- heightened aggression
- degeneration of intelligence (varies)
These physical symptoms can be found in almost all infected mammals, all of which are exhibited by human hosts (Zombies) The degeneration of intelligence is largely dependent on the species of the host. Eliminators are arguably much more intelligent, capable of following basic orders.
