"Project C" was a scientific research project that started in 4434 A.D. and which had the goal of placing the "consciousness" of legendary Contra soldier, Bill Rizer, into an artificial intelligence and with this create the ultimate weapon.

Description[]

"Project C" was an attempt to create the ultimate weapon by placing the "consciousness" of legendary Contra commando, Bill Rizer, into an artificial intelligence. The result would be a being that would have all of Rizer's combat skills and resourcefulness, but without being constrained to the restrictions of a normal biological body and its inherent "flaws", such as having morals and potentially disobey orders.

The project was branched into two different paths of research:

  1. The first was to recreate the ultimate soldier. For this purpose, a clone of Bill Rizer was created, who retained all of the original's combat abilities, but lacked any memories and knowledge of his former identity. This path had the advantage of allowing to create as many clones as desired and with this potentially create an army of super soldiers.
  2. The other was to take Rizer's consciousness and implant it into a weapon of mass destruction, which resulted in the creation of Master Contra, an artificial intelligence that developed self-awareness and the ability to take decisions by itself. He displaced around world in the form of an android, while his real self remained contained as a super computer implanted inside of a large orbital space station.

The real Bill Rizer's whereabouts during and after the development of "Project C" remain unclear, although he later reemerged under the pseudonym of "Mystery G" and helped the clone to destroy Master Contra, although sacrificing himself in the process.
