Codey is a conservation researcher working for MPCO that can be found in a small house to the east of the Forest on a seperate island. Codey specialises in solitary bee research, and so is the first introduction to solitary bees, and gives them Codey's Notes which lets them track their progress in collecting and conserving solitary bees.

Codey has come from the Mainland with her partner Dr Sto Beelit BhD.!

Like most NPCs, Dr Codey Mathive BD can be picked up with a link={{{link}}} to be moved to other places.

Trigger Prompt Dialogue
Greeting - Good day, {PLAYER.NAME}!
Default Dialogue Hello, who are you? Wotcha {PLAYER.NAME}! I'm Dr. Mathive - Codey to my friends!

I'm a solitary bee nerd, working for the Mainland Preservation and Conservation Organisation! Hmm... ugh, we really need a better name for that.

What do you mean, 'What's a solitary bee'?! Are you pulling my foreleg?

Solitary bees are bees that don't live in beehives; they live on their own and don't produce honey... I bet that sounds like blasphemy to you Islanders!

Honey or not, solitary bees are just as important for pollination and vital to the ecosystem!

I've got an sweet idea - why don't we do a fair swap? You tell me about the social bees, and in return, you can help my research into solitary bees - what do you say? Great! 1-2-3-no-take-backsies!

Let's look at your bee journal... oh! This was Professor Keeper's, right? Wicked!

*Codey starts frantically rifling through the journal's pages, tutting and muttering to themselves, ripping out pages from the journal, adding in new ones, and making notes in chunky permanent marker all over the place, before thrusting it back into your hands*

Phew! Okay! A bit rough and ready, lots of missing bits, but that should do. When you open your bee book with ◓, you can swap between social and solitary bees by pressing ζ!

For starters, solitary bees don't have hives, so you'll need somewhere for the little critters to live. In fact, I have some bee hotels on me you could buy - I can give you the friends and family discount!

Oh, don't look at me like that - do you know how hard research funding is to get these days?
After initially speaking to Codey How do I use bee hotels? By putting biome-specific flora and other items into a bee hotel, you can create a small environment that will attract solitary bees!

When the bees visit, you can inspect them with a magnifying glass - don't touch! you can't just go shoving them in your pocket...

Different solitary bees have difference hotel preferences - you can check my notes for some ideas on their favourites!

Once you've discovered a species, you'll be able to build proper Habitats, specifically tailored to their needs, and then the real work of repopulating begins!
After initially speaking to Codey and bought a bee hotel or habitat I'm ready to build a habitat! Ah, that's great! I knew you'd be a great minio - I mean, helper.

Remember, different solitary bee species have different preferences, so you can use that knowledge to build then a Habitat they'll just LOVE to hang out in!

After that, make sure you keep it stocked with goodies, and the bees will do all the rest. They might even leave you little gifts! Not cash though, I'm afraid.
After having met Dr Sto Beelit BhD Do you know Dr Beelit? Who? Never heard of 'em!

Haha, just messin' with you! Oh course I know Sto - we're dating! We both came from the Mainland on this romanti... uh. Research trip.

Miss Fancy Pants is our butterfly conservation scientist - she's not that interested in bees... to tell you the truth, I reckon she might be a little scared of them! Well, they say opposites attract...

Personally, I prefer things that have a bit more... buzz, but if you want to know more about butterflies, she's your woman! Oh... if you see her, tell her I said 'Butterflies are just bees in sweet capes'!
After 3 solitary bees discovered I've discovered some solitary bees! And to think you didn't know anything about them until a little while ago! Give me a high five...whup, too slow!
After 6 solitary bees discovered I've discovered half the solitary bees! Woah, slow down there - you'll have me out of a job! Ha ha, only joking - brilliant work!
After 12 solitary bees discovered I've discovered all the solitary bees! Holy Hivemother, you really are something! I can see why everyone talks about you so highly...

To tell you the truth, I didn't believe those Beeconomist articles, but having finally met you! Well. As a reward, I've got something special for you! You can grab it from my notes with ◓!
After 1 solitary bee repopulated I've repopulated a solitary bee! And so it bee-gins! It's addictive isn't it - and you're helping the ecosystem. Can't wait to tell those old men at the Apicademy that they were WRONG!
After 6 solitary bees repopulated I've repopulated half the solitary bees! You really are a Keeper, aren't you? It's an absolute crime what they did to your Grandfather, but hopefully, between us, we can both vindicate his life's work and save a few lives! Nicely done, {PLAYER.NAME}!
After 12 solitary bees repopulated I've repopulated all the solitary bees! Listen, real talk for a second; this is going to really change things back in the Mainland.

It's been... difficult to keep going when no-one believes in your research...well, apart from Sto, bless her! They can't ignore it any longer, not now - and it's all thanks to you, {PLAYER.NAME}! We owe you big time...
Having met the Merchant Have you met that strange Merchant? Oh that guy? I tried asking if they had a P.R.L.412 for my research, but they just looked at me like I was the crazy one!
Hivemother's Door opened I think I've met the Hivemother...
Spoilers - Show Dialogue
Oh wow... are you sure? Like in the stories? I didn't think She was real - and I certainly didn't think She would wanna talk to us! Not after... well, not after that. This project might just be a success after all!


  • Codey is based off of real-life friend of the developers, Codey Mathis
  • Codey refers to the bee book as "the Professors", which would imply that Nana is or was a Professor of some sort but no longer referred to as such
  • Codey's mention of the player's grandfather implies he had some deeper connection between either MPCO or the Apicademy.
  • Codey mentions she asked the Merchant for a "P.R.L.412", which is the laser rifle the Merchant from RE4 sells - Hivemother knows why she would need this for her research...
