Lazarus Labs

The Lazarus Labs is a level in Doom (2016). It is the center of Hell studies at the UAC Mars Base, a location where experiments were carried out on captured demons and where most of the artifacts taken from Hell, including the Helix Stone, were stored. Olivia Pierce, as Head of Biomechanical Research, had sole oversight over all projects undertaken in the Lazarus Labs. The ninth mission, also simply called Lazarus, takes place here.

"You are at the heart of the UAC occult - the Lazarus Labs. This is where Olivia released the demons from their cells and activated the Lazarus Wave, turning UAC personnel into the unwilling Possessed. You're in search of her private offices where the Helix Stone is stored. Unlock the secrets of this sacred artifact to find out how to shut down the Well - the Argent Tower's energy source in Hell."

Description[edit]

The Lazarus Labs are a sub-division of the Advanced Research Complex accessible only to those with the highest clearance level. It is an underground complex with high security, preventing both infiltration by outsiders and exfiltration of information from insiders. Members of the UAC working in the Lazarus Labs are stated to be highly secretive, and little information is available to outsiders of what goes on within the facility. All anomalies and artifacts from other dimensions are sent immediately to the Lazarus Labs for research, and will generally remain there. Promotion to the Lazarus Labs is considered a great honor, even though those being promoted do not understand in advance what they will be doing there.

Trivia[edit]

The name Lazarus is taken from a story in the Bible which describes the death of Lazarus of Bethany and his subsequent miraculous resurrection by Jesus.[1] The use of this name by the UAC is thus sacrilegious and a crude mockery of its scriptural origins, considering that a chief focus of the Lazarus Project is the reanimation of dead demons.
