J'avo is a glossary entry for Resident Evil Recollections.
A mutated human that has been infected by the C-Virus. They are ideal for forming the core of a bioterror attack as their intelligence vastly outranks that of a mere zombie, and they are able to communicate and act collectively. They are also able to mutate damaged body parts. The virus causes a severe rise in body temperature, which is compounded when they are wounded. If they are damaged beyond a certain point, the virus' activity can be intense enough to cause spontaneous combustion, burning the individual alive.
