Biography

Early life

Nothing is known about Jill Valentine's early life, but she was born sometime in 1974 to her father who was French, and her mother who was of Japanese migratory descent (referred to as a "Nikkei").

Military and Law Enforcement career

In the early 1990s, Valentine served in the United States Army and got the attention of recruiters for Delta Force, the nation's primary counter-terrorism and special forces unit. In spite of her sex, Valentine was allowed to take part in the six-month intensive Operator Training Course, where she excelled in bomb disposal and lock picking and was known for her delicate though precise work, resilience, courage and discernment amid the danger. This experience made Valentine one of the only women in the world with Delta Force training.

Some time in 1996, Valentine was recruited by Albert Wesker for the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.), an elite unit of Raccoon Police Department (RPD) that relied on military veterans and weapons-trained scientists to solve serious crimes in Raccoon City, having only joined the unit due to their strong commitment to justice and desire to "experience the true feeling of life". Despite keeping her special forces training and personal life a secret, Valentine made friends with several S.T.A.R.S. members during this time, among them being Chris Redfield with whom she developed a close friendship and partnership, often being trained by him in marksmanship.

By July 1998, Valentine became the only woman to join Captain Wesker's Alpha Team; her function in the team was cited as a breaking and entering specialist, and in maneuvers was positioned at the rear of the team with S.T.A.R.S. helicopter pilot Brad Vickers.

Resident Evil

Jill, alongside Chris Redfield and the rest of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team, traveled to the Spencer Mansion in the Arklay Mountains to investigate reports of cannibalism that were going on there. While evading the zombies and B.O.W.s throughout the mansion, the team were betrayed by their leader, Albert Wesker, who revealed himself as a mole for the Umbrella Corporation. After Wesker was seemingly killed when the Tyrant was released and the mansion's self destruct sequence was activated, Jill and the surviving members of her team escaped the building before it blew up.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

Jill was sent to Raccoon City to investigate an outbreak that had occurred there, only to find herself pursued by Nemesis, who was sent by the Umbrella Corporation to eliminate the S.T.A.R.S. team and anyone else who had extensive knowledge of Umbrella's activities. Eventually, she manages to destroy it and escape the city before the U.S. government dropped a nuclear warhead on it.

The Umbrella Chronicles

TBA.

Resident Evil: Revelations

TBA.

Resident Evil 5

In 2006, she and Chris went to Spencer estate to look for one of the Umbrella's original founders, Ozwell E. Spencer, but Albert Wesker got to him before they did. Wesker beats Chris and Jill, in a last effort to save Chris, pushed Wesker along with her down in the bottom of the mansion. She then returns as a brainwashed servant to Wesker, but is freed by Chris and his new partner, Sheva. Leaving them behind to confront Wesker by themselves, Jill fainted after being freed from the mind control device. She is woken up by Captain Josh Stone, whom he recognizes her immediately, and gets paired with him to escape the Tricell facility.

Personality

Numerous official documents, including her character file found in Resident Evil 5, highlight Jill's unrivaled ability to remain calm under extreme conditions, while the manual for the remake of the original Resident Evil says that her quick thinking has kept herself and her comrades alive on numerous occasions.

Her profile in Resident Evil 3 describes her as cheerful yet determined, with a strong sense of justice, while her involvement with S.T.A.R.S., a bio-hazard containment unit of Raccoon Police Department and co-founding, high ranking role within the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance show her years of commitment to stopping biological terrorism and fighting for peace and the protection of innocents.

Jill is a loyal partner and friend to her fellow soldiers, particularly Chris Redfield. Her entire involvement in the Il Veltro conspiracy began through her search for Chris when he was reported missing. During the raid on Spencer's Estate, she proved that she was even prepared to give her life to protect Chris and stop their hatred enemy, Albert Wesker, when she tackled Wesker out of a window and over a cliff edge as he prepared to kill Chris.

When she was taken by Wesker, Jill was experimented on and brainwashed by P30 which took a heavy toll on her physically despite granting her super strength and agility. Against her will, Jill became loyal to Wesker and Excella assisting them in their plans and even going so far as to infect innocent lives with the Uroboros virus. Despite being used as a puppet, Jill was responsive and only spoke when necessary. She carried out her objectives without question.

Eventually, she did manage to fight back her brainwashed state which thanks to Chris' voice calling out her name, but the effects of P30 proved to be too powerful for her to resist. Regardless, once Chris and Sheva freed her from Wesker's control, she soon came back to her senses and aided them in their fight against Wesker. Being partners since at least 1998, they seem to share a very strong bond revolving around their partnership.
