Resistance Wiki


Project Phoenix was a top-secret SRPA project that sought to tame and control Chimeran creatures. The project took place at SRPA Station Kali on Ellis Island. Project Phoenix only appears in Resistance: Burning Skies.


Richard Gorrell conceived Project Phoenix to turn the tide of the Chimeran War by controlling an army of tamable Chimera. Early attempts all resulted in failure, only seizing control over the subject for mere seconds. Recently, Gorrell discovered the Gray Tech components have an effect on severing the Chimera's connection to the Chimeran hive mind and are capable of controlling individual Chimera. Gorrell believed that inserting Grey Tech modules inside individual Chimera while they are formed would allow absolute control of the creature. To this end, human beings are abducted and infected with the Chimeran virus.

Tom Riley and Ellie Martinez discovered an instructional film pertaining to Project Phoenix's goals, which they then learn that Gorrell had kidnapped several human subjects from the Union City protection camp. Tom eventually confronted Gorrell at a conversion tower, where Gorrell attempted to control an unfinished Leviathan, but fails. The Leviathan is slain by Tom, who then killed Gorrell in self-defense. This served as a major setback to the project, and it is currently unknown whether or not it was ever continued.
