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.

I'm not going to let anything happen to you, the world needs you!

Thank you for being so nice to me... For helping me. I'm really glad I met you.

Sherry Birkin is a supporting character in Resident Evil series. 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. She still has the genetic coding of the G-Virus that gives her accelerated healing.

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 Helena Harper in Resident Evil 6, 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.
