is a game character in the Resident Evil survival horror series.
Jill is a protagonist in the original Resident Evil, where she is introduced as a member of the fictional Raccoon Police Department's Special Tactics And Rescue Service (STARS). She returned as the protagonist in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, where she was merely a citizen trying to survive the zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, and then in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and in Resident Evil 5, where she was a member of the fictional paramilitary group Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA); she is also the protagonist in Resident Evil: Genesis, the mobile phone adaptation of the series. The film version of Jill appears in Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Afterlife played by Sienna Guillory.
During development of the original Resident Evil, Jill was conceived as the weaker of the two playable characters (the other one being Chris Redfield). However, she was given more ammunition, two extra item slots, the ability to pick locks, and access to other weapons to compensate for this.
The development team for Nemesis commented that Jill was deliberately designed to make her "beautiful for everybody" and appeal to both male and female gamers, as males would find her physically attractive and females would see her as a tough role model.
