nonny you are very sweet if a little confused. Project Blackwater is part of my Resident Evil AU, a highly classified project/agency that’s part of the CIA. It was originally created to control public knowledge about the Raccoon City virus outbreak, as in this AU the government and Umbrella, working together, successfully cover up everything that happened in Raccoon, both the viral zombie outbreak and the government issued nuke that destroyed the city. A fair section of Blackwater agents functioned in that capacity even after the destruction of Racoon City, staffing the governmental facility built on and around the irradiated remains of the city. However, it also employed a number of field agents, tasked with dealing with outbreaks of other biological weapons both inside and outside the country and securing viral research for the US, though many of its agents don’t know the second half of that. It’s a project that runs on layer upon layer of secrecy, deception, and manipulation and isn’t above fucking over its own people in order to further its goals. As survivors of Raccoon City, Leon and Claire both end up working for Blackwater as field agents, mostly so the government/Umbrella can keep an eye on them and make sure they don’t spill knowledge of what actually happened in Raccoon City.
there’s so much here and I’m not sure how much of it I want to say now?? Blackwater is so fucked up and, actively and on purpose, fuck over Claire and Leon so many times. also I didn’t realize until after I named them but it’s fitting that Blackwater works with Umbrella.
