Every day, humans come one step closer to self-destruction. I'm not destroying the world, I'm saving it!— Albert Wesker
"Who are you, f***ing Rasputin? Stay dead this time!
Power-hungry, intelligent and cunning, Albert Wesker was a man who sought power and domination over the entire human race, all for his own gain. To this end, he was affiliated with the Umbrella Corporation, as one of its most promising researchers, and at the same time participated in illicit activities by going undercover as an officer in the R.P.D. and the leader of S.T.A.R.S. in Raccoon City. Through the course of much betrayal of his allies to further his own plans, Wesker faked his death, gained superhuman powers from an experimental virus, and worked alongside both the mysterious "Organization" and Tricell, Inc. He would eventually enact a plot, originally created by Ozwell E. Spencer, to transform the human race into powerful superhumans like himself, and be a god to rule over them and a new age. He has had a role in more Resident Evil games than any character, and is the primary antagonist of the series.
Space Pirates & The Hax
- Main article: DRAW Your Own Story 11
After his tenure in Tricell Pharmaceuticals, Wesker found himself enlisted by the Hacker alongside Dr. Richtofen. Impressed by Wesker's past deeds, the Hacker made him second in command of the Space Pirates. At some point, Martha Shepard and Qara Avethokastar accidentally appeared in his office. Not wanting to be hunted after, Qara claimed to be working for CivGeneral; wondering who this man was, Wesker called up records for him. As the duo appeared again, he decided that whoever CivGeneral was, he had made an enemy of the Umbrella Corporation.
In order to find out more about CivGeneral, he familiarized himself with DYOS. He was especially interested in the consistent failures of CivGeneral's rivals to defeat the man. Wesker stated: "The most incompetent man I have the displeasure on reading about is Dr. Breen. How could he let one man defeate [sic] him?". So self-assured was Albert that he could surpass his predecessors that he declared himself "CivGeneral's Chief Antagonist". The fact that Jill Valentine was CG's wife only sweetened the deal.
After the Hacker's split from Umbrella, Wesker vowed to punish him. He continued to proceed with the robotification device aboard Wesker's Hammer until it was destroyed by CivGeneral and his friends. With the help with Ayane, CG injected Wesker with a T-virus counter-agent to weaken him. Assuming he was doomed to go down with the ship, CG left Wesker, who was picked up by Richtofen and his girlfriend Excella Gionne.
Fleeing Wesker's Hammer, Wesker was met by Mara Jade, revived by the Umbrella Corporation in the hope of either seducing CivGeneral or killing him outright. Disappointed in her failure, he fired her, immediately prompting Mara to exploit his frail state to usurp control of Umbrella while berating his psychological approach to warring with CG. Although Wesker remained an Umbrella agent, his power within the organization was significantly weakened.
During Mariko's Coup, Wesker was encountered by CG ranting on a rooftop. CG Falcon Punched him clear across the city; he was met by Mariko the following morning outside the Senatorial offices; having no use for him, she shot him in the head. Is this the final end? Wesker's body was encased in carbonite, and he narrated his own epilogue, so the jury's still out on whether he may yet return...
