Genesis Virus

A fanon virus used as a plot device for Alex Wesker's appearance in Resident Evil Code: Genesis. It was developed sometime in the year 2000.


This virus is know to rapidly increase the metabolism of its hosts, giving them incredible strength, speed and regenerative abilities faster than any produced virus made to date. It also allows for a bizarre new trait; it permits the hosts' cells to dissolve and fracture at mental will, giving the host the ability to change their physical appearance whenever they choose. The only known host of the virus is Alex Wesker. The virus' effects limit itself to the heart, leaving the rest of the organs relatively intact. The subject's mind is retained and no ill effects appear to take place.

The virus has a unique effect on the tissue around the vocal cords. Alex demonstrates the ability to change not only his physical form, but his voice as well. His internal organs also automatically adjust to the changes as well without any damages to his system. The virus seems to be perfectly stable, but when Alex began to change too many times all in one mere shot, he began to feel completely drained of energy. This shows that the virus inside cannot be activated in such a way for so many times.

It is commonly referred to as the "Alex virus or GS-virus".


There are few sources from Spencer's memoirs that describe the source of immortality as having been created by Alex Wesker. Its exact origin remains unknown, though is likely of Progenitor descent, though whether Tyrant, Gene or another strain of the virus remains unknown mostly. The color takes on a strange green shade but when placed under UV rays and even frozen, it takes on a solid shade of blue and still remains active under a microscope, which reveals that it "adapts" to its environment regardless of the change. Alex Wesker's ability to recover from injuries unnaturally fast support this as well.

Alex reveals that he discovered the virus before his initial "betrayal", although he doesn't believe that he betrayed the man at all. He also reveals that it took over 1000 test subjects before it had finally been perfected for himself to use. Whether or not it is cause of his genetic strain leaves much to be debated.
