But there's something out there. I don't know what it is, but I saw it. Much larger than any of those zombies, and it's coming after me.
~ Sherry, to Claire, in Resident Evil 2 (1998).
Thank you for being so nice to me... For helping me. I'm really glad I met you.
~ Sherry, to Claire.
I'm not going to let anything happen to you - the world needs you!

Sherry Birkin is a major protagonist in the Resident Evil series, serving as one of the two deuteragonists of Resident Evil 2 and it's 2019 remake (specifically the deuteragonist of Claire Redfield's campaign), a major protagonist in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and one of the main protagonists in Resident Evil 6, serving as the deuteragonist of Jake Muller's campaign.

She first appeared in Resident Evil 2 as a troubled child trying to escape the danger in Raccoon City. She is infected with an embryo by her father, William Birkin, who is a monster at that time. Luckily, she is rescued by Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy. She returns in Resident Evil 6 as an adult teaming up with Jake Muller, being tasked to bring Mueller back to the states to make a vaccine against the C-Virus. She still has the genetic coding of the G-Virus that gives her accelerated healing, and increased physical condition.

She was voiced by Lisa Yamanaka in Resident Evil 2 (1998), Laura Bailey in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, Edgen Riegel and Maaya Sakamoto in Resident Evil 6, and Eliza Pryor and Rio Sasaki in the Resident Evil 2 remake. Yamanaka also voiced Wanda Li in The Magic School Bus, Bailey also voiced Angela Miller in Resident Evil: Degeneration, Helena Harper in Resident Evil 6, Samara in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC - Dawnguard, Nadine Ross in the Uncharted series, Kait Diaz in the Gears of War series, and Supergirl in Injustice 2, and Riegel also voiced Hifumi Togo in Persona 5 Royal and Kiara in The Lion Guard.


Early Life

Sherry Birkin was born around 1986 to doctors William and Annette Birkin, two virologists who took part in T-Virus research at Umbrella's Arklay Laboratory. Due to her parents' busy work schedules, Sherry had a strained relationship with them, and she was frequently neglected once William and Annette transferred to the NEST. Sherry's youth is not much known, but she was enrolled as a student at East Raccoon Elementary, and Annette entrusted her with a locket on her eleventh birthday. The locket was actually related to their research, and Sherry's safety was important to them, not wanting her to be around strangers who could be after Golgotha.

When Umbrella Security arrived in William's lab and left him for dead, they stole samples of Golgotha, resulting in William using the last sample to turn himself into "G". William then attacked Umbrella Security, but released the T-virus into the sewers, which contaminated the water that the people of Raccoon City collected. Sherry somehow managed to reach the Raccoon City Police Department, and decided to hide around the police station due to officers becoming infected themselves.

Sherry encountered both Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, and would later be kidnapped by Brian Irons in one account of the Raccoon City incident. Sherry would become infected herself, but the accounts of different, such as William encountering her in the Raccoon City Orphanage, or being infected in the sewers.


Sherry's condition worsened due to the Golgotha infection, but she was successfully treated by Claire by using the DEVIL vaccine from NEST. Sherry and Claire later reunited with Leon onboard a train to escape NEST as it was self-destructing. After Leon and Claire dealt with a fully mutated William, Sherry, Claire, and Leon found themselves in Arklay County. After the events of Raccoon City, Sherry was taken into custody to protect her from the threat of Albert Wesker. Though protected by Derek C. Simmons, he would use her blood to develop the C-Virus. After Wesker's death in 2009, Sherry was offered to be a federal agent, and agreed after becoming more aware of bio-terrorism.

Resident Evil 6

Serving in the Division of Security Operations, Sherry was tasked by the government to locate Albert Wesker's son, Jake Muller, and bring him back so they could use his blood samples to make a vaccine. Sherry managed to locate Jake, and the two managed to escape from Edonia with the assistance of Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans, who allowed them to pick up by a BSAA helicopter. While flying across the mountains, they were attacked by a unit and survived the plane crash. The two would attempt to find shelter, and were eventually captured by Dr. Carla Radames and taken to China to be experimented on by Neo-Umbrella. After six months, Sherry and Jake managed to escape from the laboratory complex and managed to get to Lanshiang, where they encountered Leon and Helena Harper. The group learned that Simmons was responsible behind the bio-terrorist attacks, and Sherry and Jake tried to escape from him until they were captured by Dr. Radmes' J'avo.

Sherry and Jake were taken to an underwater laboratory complex, but managed to escape from their constraints and encountered Redfield and Nivens once again. While Redfield revealed that he killed Jake's father, a giant cocoon hatched, forcing the group to split up in the facility. Sherry and Jake battled the Ustanak, a creature that was chasing them since Edonia, and managed to kill it while the facility was being destroyed. After the C-Virus outbreak and the death of both Simmons and Radmes, Jake was taken to the states and allowed his blood be used for vaccine research, which managed to contain the virus.

Physical Appearance

Sherry is a beautiful young woman in her mid 20s with short blonde hair and blue eyes.


  • Height: 165 - 170 cm (5' 4" - 5' 7")
  • Weight: 47 to 56 kg (104 to 124 lb)
  • Build: Athletic
  • Hair: Blonde
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Age: 12 (Resident Evil 1 & 2), 26 (Resident Evil 6)
  • Birthdate: 1986




  • In the original Resident Evil 2, Sherry wasn't aware that her father was "G", but in the DLC Of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil 2 remake, she is aware that the creature is her father.
  • Sherry looks younger than her actual age due to the G-virus remnants in her body; the virus itself gives regenerative powers. Despite the treatment that removed the G-embryo from her body, Sherry noted that what remained adapted.
  • Sherry can heal from what would normally be lethal impalements, thanks to her healing. However, Sherry must concentrate to forcibly speed up the healing; she notably was shivering and groaning in pain as her back wound shut and collapsed for breath shortly afterwards.
  • As Claire was the only real human contact Sherry had over the years, she was likely given "the talk" by Claire to prepare her for when she returned to society as an adult (since she wouldn't be growing up in a proper social environment).
