I was reminded of the file found in one of the Helmet Key rooms of the Spencer Mansion that detailed orders to lure STARS in to test BOWs and attain combat data. These orders came from an individual or entity called "White Umbrella". Who, or what, is it? This is something that has bothered me for years because this White Umbrella is never identified in any of the games.

The SD Perry novels identified them as some kind of black ops division of Umbrella, but while SD Perry is a great writer and her novels are popular with fans, this is non-canon and as such does not (at this time) pertain to the games.

For years it was suggested that the unnamed individual with the shadowed face found at the end of RE3 Mercs was White Umbrella, but this too is up for debate as you can see in the Gamecube version of RE3 that this individual's facial shape suggests that it's Brian Irons.

So who is White Umbrella?

Discuss.

Yeah, it was never really given to us in detail. I think UC mentioned them too.

The novels definately did.

I'll have to check UC and post back with my findings.

Bump!

Spike, have you found anything on this? I've searched around, but found nothing but inconclusive theories. Is it a person? An organization? A branch of the Umbrella Corporation?

Oh damn, I totally never looked that up... wacko.gif

I'd think another branch. I don't have my UC on me either...actually I got Archives 2, but I don't think that has documents for the Chronicles games.

Hmmm...I will post back once I get some info!

No, I'm almost 100% certain that White Umbrella was the signer of this file in the GC version as well.

Well, this is a correction almost two years in the making...

In all this time, have you managed to narrow down your exact percentage of certainty? I just want to know exactly how wrong you are. ;-)

Again, White Umbrella was retconned out of RE. This file does indeed reappear in REmake, but it's signed Umbrella Headquarters.
