|“||I was better off as a mercenary.||„|
|~ Jake Muller in Resident Evil 6.|
Jacob "Jake" Muller-Wesker is one of the main protagonists in Resident Evil 6. He is a anti-heroic freelance mercenary employed to team up with Sherry Birkin to save the world with his blood.
Coming from a poverty-stricken Edonian family, Jake became a mercenary early on in order to afford medical treatment for his chronically ill mother, who died shortly thereafter. Left alone in the world, he turned his only concern into monetary gains. His life comes to a turning point when he meets Sherry Birkin, who claims he's the world's best hope of salvation — and learns his father, who left his pregnant mother, was none other than Albert Wesker. It is then revealed that Jake has inherited many of Alber Wesker's abilities from Umbrella's Wesker Eugenics Program, mainly Wesker's physical prowess and augmented immune system.

However, by the end of the game, he graduates to a much more heroic and self-sacrificing character. It is shown when he slowly starts to care, until he's genuinely trying to help Sherry save the world instead of just doing it for the money. Jake becomes more protective, shoving Leon when he attempts to get close to Sherry when in China. After the events in China, he lowered his price, and decided to change his life, shown when protecting a child from Napads.
