Marcus' Diary 1

December 4th

We finally did it... the new virus!

We have called it the "Progenitor".

I want to carry it back and start detailed investigations immediately.


March 23rd

Spencer says he's going to start a company.

Well, I don't care, as long as I can continue my research into "Progenitor".

He can do what he likes...


August 19th

Spencer keeps asking me to be the director of his new Training facility.

Maybe it's because of the business, but he's becoming intolerably pushy.

Maybe I can turn this to my advantage. I need a special facility to properly explore all this virus' secrets.

A place where no one will get in the way...


November 30th

Damn that Spencer... He came to complain to me again today.
He thinks of "Progenitor" as nothing more than a money-spinning tool. Fool!

But if his influence continues to grow, it can only be bad for my research.

If I am to properly develop "Progenitor", i must strengthen my own position too.


September 19th

At last...

I've discovered a way to build a new virus type with "Progenitor" as a base.

Mixing it with leech DNA was the breakthrough I needed...

I call this new virus "t", for "tyrant."


October 23rd

It's no good!
I can't hope for real progress by experimenting on mere rodents.

Only humans are a proper mammalian subject for the experiments.
Otherwise, I'll never make any real progress...


November 15th

Someone seems to suspect something about my experiments...

...but perhaps its just my imagination.

Well, if anyone does get too close, they find themselves unexpectedly "assisting" in my research!


January 13th

At last, they are ready. My wonderful leeches!

Those of low intelligence, they will never have the privilege of tasting this sense of joy and satisfaction!

Now, finally, I can move against Spencer. Soon I will control everything...


January 31st

The devices I set to protect my work have been disturbed.

It appears someone came looking for "t" and the leeches. Fool.

No doubt the work of Spencer's group.


February 11th

Today, I again found evidence of tampering around the entrance to the labs.

If that is what they're after, I must find a suitable way to deal with them.
Perhaps I should have William and Albert smoke out the pests...

Those two are the only ones I trust.
Apart from my beloved leeches, of course.

But Spencer... It wouldn't end there, would it? I will announce "t" at the next directors meeting, and collect my just rewards...
