For this one, you must rally your scientific team into a suicide mission.
VIRUS (any gender, mid forties through late life)
Twenty years in this laboratory. Twenty years and we have rolled over every time the Grand Leader barks at us. Twenty years, of saying "yes, sir" and creating deadlier and deadlier viruses. Containing them here but showing other nations that we can open them up on them. I've led this team to create our latest virus because... because I thought it would bring peace. Other nations would leave us alone and we would leave them alone.
But we can't kid ourselves. The Grand Leader is using the virus to enslave the other nations. We've created a threat that cannot be challenged. We've turned the rest of the planet into a cage.
And that is not why I became a scientist.
So. If you still want to be a part of this team, I have one final project for us. Tonight we neutralize all the viruses and we destroy this lab. You all know the probabilities of survival, much less safety.
But as your lead scientist, I'm not rolling over again.
