Harran Virus Origin (Theory)

Recommended Posts

I been gathering intel of what  could have started the DL virus of Harran.

1. The virus spread within the city of Harran within two months

This indicates it spreads fast and there isn't a vaccine for it yet but according to the Doc it is a form of rabies never seen before and it mutates through some of the reform versions of the virus thus giving us the variety of Biters such as Goon Demolisher and most fan favorite Volitile last but not least the weirdest of them all Toad. they all have very unique abilities and styles to their attacks you even have the first base gen of Biters they are more recent versions of them known as Virals they are fresh turned and they have humanity?. Correct Virals have humanity left in them, I've came across some virals who back down from me and say please no then get up in a rage and start back at fighting me this tells me they are still human but can't fight back the virus for too long before going back in anger at you. I have scouted across the slums and met some of the NPC's who really don't have anything important except of who they were before the outbreak. One I found was near the shop you get chocolates from when doing the side quest everyone loves "Mother's Day" this man would be there sitting up on the little side part just staring when you walk up to him it automatically interacts he tells you he has seen his friends die he was once on of the ones who had helped to fight back the virus people who came in wearing Hazmat suits they thought they were safe it is what they were told by their director that they couldn't possibly tear into the suit they manages to and cause the Hazmat squad to go down in a bit of wander-less biter  who cant do anything but swing at you.

2. Aldemir's number one fan

I came across a girl who is a big fan of our beloved Jade Aldemir and even was training to be a boxer like her when she came to Harran with hopes and dreams the outbreak had hit and her and her sister were in the mist of running like the rest of the people in fear but instead of keeping her sister they lost each other and all she saw was her sister being gnawed on dying to a bunch of Biters she lost her sister but still tries to manage to survive while staying in one of the Slums various safe houses the one particularly has the guy who thinks he is faster then the player and gives you the challenge to prove your speed.

3. The Mother

The once proud Mother of the children of the sun has given you her story of the outbreak when you go to face her either to take the antidote causing you to become the {Night Hunter} Ultimate predator for Harran's city who isn't infected or to having to join her filling the prophecy of nuking all of Harran to end the virus there and save the whole world from the virus path, She tells you when the outbreak start her husband was a general and was taking her to a safe location in Old Town (I assume and can't remember what part of Harran she is from) A military base with supplies she is needed and help but her husband got biten on the way of trying to escape she was given a pack of cigarettes from her dying husband as she and some others her children of the sun are running to escape she was in total shock and fear by the time she reached the outskirts of Harran where the story of The following takes place she had gotten bit and when finding the area you find her in she was looking for medical supplies with her group before she could turn finding the mist that for some reason makes zombies not go near you and she had taken a drink of it causing her to become a superior volatile before all that she remember her husband never smoked and looked in the cigarette pack which had the map to where she was leading her too it and giving her the wrong set of codes to enter in the nuke to end all of Harran. One of the people who she had in her group was a man who was dying of cancer and he had the correct codes entrusting them to crane when had sent him on a goose chase so that the man could commit suicide he didn't want to die from cancer and turn or just die from cancer in general nobody knows his reasons of his suicide just only know he done it when you choose your path ending the following either nuking or become the predator it is up to you but there was a third option a military supply drop has dropped a package into the sea where you must go and retrieve it on your own giving you a code reader for other military crates and a blue print and a map to where you have to go to find the key card to the truck on the highway that had a nuke on the inside and you also have to have the military keycard from Jasir to open crates leading to it once you gather all you need for the truck you go to it and you enter it putting in the card for the nuke and looking back at the door way as if you are saying goodbye as you nuke all of Harran and unlocking the outfit Team Dying Light what a way to go I like that ending more to be honest.


4. Aliens

In a side quest to save man who believes the virus came from space and giving you a gun that is useless in your mind but is usfeulf because you must collect rocks in the following to see them and get a secret outfit while a upgrade to the gun making it even cooler either way the man you save thinks aliens have something to do with it well there is a reason stranges symbols posters and other various thing all around old town point to the aliens theory being the best one because of the tribal weapons and grenades to suspend Biters all point to aliens so the virus must have come from a meteorite from space causing it to be a zombie outbreak 



These are just points and notes of information I have gathered to give a compelling theory for the readers out their wondering if there is a origin to the Harran virus.

Hope you enjoy and play Dying Light to have fun and to see if you can make a better theory then me I actually want to hear your theories and beliefs on the virus of Harran.
