Title

Derek C. Simmons

Derek Clifford Simmons was a retired lieutenant general in the United States Army, former leader of the secret organization "The Family" and former National Security Advisor under President Adam Benford. He held a strong conviction that biological weapons would replace conventional weapons and advocated collusion with the Umbrella Corporation, a B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapons) manufacturer. He was the guardian of Sherry Birkin and possessed a cruel, perfectionist personality and an obsession with a self-serving definition of "global stability." 1

History

Simmons was born into the long and influential line of the powerful Simmons family. He became the head of their giant organization "The Family" and endorsed the creed to maintain global stability (global circumstances that would benefit its members). He believed that maintaining stability was contingent upon keeping the United States at the top of the pyramid of world power. He was also head of the Simmons Foundation, which owned at least one research institute. During his time in the U.S. Army, Simmons met Adam Benford and the two became friends.

His foundation scouted a gifted fifteen year old Carla Radames and he immersed her into B.O.W. and virus research. He was pleased with her gifted intelligence and research results, and she admired him as he gave her recognition. Meanwhile, Simmons came into contact with the female spy Ada Wong. He appreciated her as an excellent spy with genius characteristics similar to himself and hired her to carry out secret missions to advance his own ideals and ambitions, soon harboring a distorted attachment and love for her. 2

Raccoon City Destruction Incident (1998)

In 1998, Simmons negotiated with Umbrella scientist William Birkin. In exchange for protecting him, Simmons stood to gain the G-virus and research data that would allow the government to sever its illicit ties with Umbrella and conduct its own development.

On September 23, a Delta Force team was dispatched to extradite Birkin from Raccoon City. In the event of mission failure, Simmons plotted to stop Umbrella from acquiring the G-virus by eradicating the city using a new non-nuclear warhead. Umbrella learned of the negotiations and dispatched their own forces. The team was unable to rescue Birkin and the aftermath resulted in a large-scale outbreak of the t-virus that decimated the city.

Simmons used the incident as a case study to evaluate B.O.W. effectiveness, and with the threat posed by them remaining as data, he was convinced of their value and believed he could also conceal the truth of the government's involvement with Umbrella. To achieve this, he incited the President and government radicals and pushed the Army's eradication plan, the "Sterilization Operation", until it was approved by a special Senate committee.

Project Ada (1999-2009)

After the Raccoon incident, Simmons met Sherry Birkin and asked if she had any relatives. Upon discovering she had none, he became her guardian and she underwent a painful childhood as a research subject. In order to maintain her sanity, Simmons provided all the mental and emotional support necessary and allowed an outsider, Claire Redfield, to visit her. 4 5

Ada Wong severed all connections with him, regarding him as dangerous when she learned his involvement in Raccoon City's destruction. This dealt a blow to Simmons' mental state and he became obsessed with the idea of "getting Ada back." To this end, he initiated "Project Ada" with the goal to replicate Wong. He noticed a characteristic in the C-virus developed by Carla Radames to completely remake the body of an injected human and decided to apply this process to create a loyal clone of Ada Wong using DNA samples he obtained of her. 6

A researcher noted that Radames herself held the compatible gene sequence to become a clone of Wong. Simmons ordered the researchers to keep this fact a secret before subjecting her to the experiment. As he expected, she was reborn as a perfect physical clone of Ada Wong. Simmons was only able to have a business relationship with the original Wong, and began to train Radames to behave heart and soul like her, piling on a perverted love and desire for subjugation as her instinct. Before long, Radames lost her sense of self and was also mentally reborn as Ada Wong. 7

Simmons gave Radames control over The Family's military power in the Far East and presented a submarine and warship to her as gifts. 8 At an undetermined time, Radames regained her sense of self and founded Neo Umbrella to work against Simmons with the intention of destroying his idea of global stability through global chaos. After Adam Benford's succession as President of the United States, he appointed Simmons as National Security Advisor and he quickly distinguished himself as the President's undisputed right hand.

In February 2011, Simmons was believed to have anonymously contracted the real Ada Wong to infiltrate the Eastern Slav Republic embroiled in civil war to destroy the government's underground nuclear bunker and steal a sample of the synthetic Plaga species created by the government of Svetlana Belikova. She accomplished the mission successfully but refused to send the sample presumably after realizing his identity, due to his offer to erase her arrest warrants at Interpol and BSAA using the power and influence of The Family.

In 2012, Simmons sent Radames to conduct a C-virus field test at the isolated Marhawa School, including a variant of the virus originally produced as a by-product of Project Ada. The test was a success and sample C-16 (Nanan Yoshihara) was recovered. Further development led to the creation of the Lepotica B.O.W.

In December, Simmons received a report on the son of Albert Wesker, Jake Muller. Due to his genes possessing antibodies effective against the C-virus, he was deemed an important test subject as it could not only improve the C-virus, but also prevent a vaccine from being created. This would allow the C-virus to remain a dominant viral weapon. 9 Simmons ordered Sherry Birkin to infiltrate the Republic of Edonia in Eastern Europe to protect and extradite Muller. Meanwhile, he also ordered Radames to ensure they made it out alive. However, he was betrayed and they were captured by Radames who reported them dead. 10

Tall Oaks Sterilization Operation (2013)

In June 2013, Simmons was angered by President Benford's plan to reveal the government's involvement in the Raccoon incident. Simmons believed that if the collusion with Umbrella went public, it would displace the nation from the top of the global hierarchy of power and destabilize the world. Fearing chaos, Simmons tried to change the President's mind by advising him against the plan and placing pressure on him with The Family, but when these efforts proved futile, he planned to imitate the Raccoon incident and orchestrated a bioterrorism attack to assassinate the President.

Unlike the situation with Raccoon City, Simmons planned to announce the incident in Tall Oaks to the entire world in order to spin a narrative; "the President was killed by bioterrorism and the government conducted a Sterilization Operation out of necessity to protect the nation from an unidentified virus. A powerful terrorist organization plunged the world into danger and the strongest nation, the United States, fought and defeated it." The plan would display the power of the U.S. to China, which had risen rapidly in recent years, and also serve as a warning to government officials related to the President that would attempt to reveal the truth behind the Raccoon incident.

To carry out the assassination plan, Simmons abducted USSS (U.S. Secret Service) agent Helena Harper and her sister, Deborah Harper. By holding Deborah hostage, he manipulated Helena into agreeing to create a gap in the President's security detail at Ivy University which would allow him to be killed. Several Lepoticas were then released to spread the C-virus gas, killing over 70,000 people. His final action was to bomb Tall Oaks and use Neo Umbrella to claim responsibility, framing Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper. However, he was called by the real Ada Wong and told that Radames was plotting to destroy the world. Meanwhile, Neo Umbrella claimed responsibility for the Tall Oaks and Lanshiang attacks.

Simmons boarded a private jet to China in order to take control of the situation and stop Radames. He didn't believe the report that Kennedy and Harper died in Tall Oaks and issued an order to destroy the plane they were boarding to China with the use of a Lepotica. Upon arriving in China, to his surprise he received a call from Sherry Birkin and Jake Muller and arranged to meet with them. However, he was confronted by Kennedy and Harper who convinced Birkin and Muller of his guilt. He was injected with the enhanced strain of the C-virus by a J'avo under Radames' order. He revealed his motives to Kennedy and Harper before succumbing to the virus and painfully mutating. He attacked them but was subdued and eventually abandoned by The Family. 11

Simmons reappeared at the Quad Tower and mutated again into a form resembling a dinosaur, but was again subdued by Kennedy and Harper with the aid of the real Ada Wong. 12 However, he continued to mutate and pursued the two agents up the tower before being defeated again. Despite this fourth defeat, he mutated again into a form resembling a giant fly and attacked the two on the roof before finally being killed. Shortly after his death, The Family's agents recovered samples of his blood containing the enhanced strain of the C-virus and selected a new leader of the organization. 13
