In Retribution, she is Umbrella's new head of security and in constant pursue of Alice, when she escapes. She is able to fight Alice, but the device used to control her is removed and she is back as Alice's ally.

Jill possessed a natural fighting skills, but not equal to Alice. After being controlled by the Red Queen, she has skills that are equal to Alice when she had powers. Jill is slightly drained after the scarab is removed.


Resident Evil: ApocalypseEdit

Jill had been a rising star in the S.T.A.R.S. organization, before her reputation was ruined after a botched mission known as "The Arklay Mountains Incident". She gained insight into a "classified bioweapon weakness", which was said to be a "cranial flaw". Initially the Umbrella Corporation intended to bribe her, so their bioweapons wouldn't lose market value. Had that failed, they planned to have her "neutralized".[5][6] She attempted to go her superiors with the information she learned about and was suspended from duty under the implication that she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Jill is first seen entering her apartment. Newspaper articles that are posted on a bulletin board hints at her dismissal from the S.T.A.R.S. unit. Jill turns on a police scanner and her television where she learns that Raccoon City is under attack by the undead. Jill hears her fellow police officer's pleas for help and decides to head there.

Once Jill reaches the police department she kills all of the zombies inside and rescues a criminal by the name of L.J.. She informs everyone inside the precinct that she's leaving town and they should do the same. As Jill exits the station everyone left inside quickly flees the building.

By the time Jill decides to leave Raccoon City, Umbrella has the city quarantined and the only way out is to pass through a checkpoint Umbrella had set up located at the Raven Gate Bridge. When Jill reaches the Raven's Gate Bridge she fights through the distraught crowd of Raccoon's citizens and makes her way to the Sergeant Peyton Wells. After their greeting a man in the crowd begins to convulse while Peyton and a few Umbrella soldiers try to control the situation.

Peyton manages to secure the man's daughter but is bitten when the man turns into zombie. Jill is forced to shoot the infected man while Peyton held him down. This causes Major Timothy Cain to shut the gates and prevent people from leaving the city to prevent the infection from spreading. Umbrella commands the citizens to return to their homes or be fired upon by the operatives. As Umbrella prepares to fire into the crowd, Terri Morales captures all of the chaos on her video camera. Umbrella opens fire on the crowd while Jill and Peyton rush to get the civilians to safety.

Jill, Peyton and Terri make their way to the Raven's Gate Church and take refuge inside. Once inside the trio is confronted by a crazed man wielding a magnum revolver. Peyton calms him while Terri begins to question Jill about her opinion on the outbreak,[7] though Jill doesn't answer. The group hears a weird noise coming from another part of the Church and Jill goes to investigate. Jill confronts a priest and his "sick" sister. Jill offers to help until she discovers the sister is actually a zombie and he's been feeding her body parts from dead humans. The priest's sister breaks free from her restraints. Jill prepares to kill her, however, the priest gets in the way and is bitten; Jill is forced to kill them both.

Jill heads back to the main area of the Church, she hears a scream and goes to investigate. She soon discovers that the crazed man has been killed by a Licker. Upon making her way back to the main lobby of the Church she is apprehended by Peyton and he informs her that the "creatures" are roaming around on the ceiling. The two decide that the best course of action is to kill as many as possible. Peyton and Jill run out of ammo before they successfully kill any Lickers. Jill, Peyton and Terri are about to be overtaken by the Lickers when Alice crashes through the Church's painted glass windows and kills the remaining Lickers with ease.

Jill, Alice, Peyton and Terri make their way through City cemetery. As they go on a bit further Peyton stops and begins to feel pain. Alice pulls her gun on him, resulting in immediate retaliation from Jill. Though Alice explains what will happen, Jill assures her that if Peyton turns she'll "take care of it". Soon thereafter, the undead begin to rise from the graves and attack the group. Alice and Jill try to stop them but the group is forced to retreat.

As the group roam the streets they get a call from a Dr. Charles Ashford; he tells them that he can get them out of Raccoon City before Umbrella nukes the city, if and only if they rescue his daughter, Angela Ashford.

Jill in Raccoon City Junior School.

On the way to Raccoon City Junior School where Angela, is hiding, the group is confronted by the Nemesis and Peyton is killed. Jill fires on Nemesis to no avail, Alice tells Jill and Terri to run while she distracts the monster. Jill and Terry try to hot wire a truck when a revived Peyton attacks them. Jill kills him, shooting him point-blank in the head. As the two head for the school, they encounter L.J., the man she rescued back at the police department.

Once they reach Raccoon City Junior School, Jill tells L.J. and Terri that they'll all need to split up to find Angela. When Jill finally finds Angela, she discovers Terri has been killed. Jill and Angela make their way to the school's cafeteria, which is occupied by zombies and a pack of dogs. Jill tries her best to take care of them but the dogs are too much for her to handle. Nicholai Ginovaef comes to her aid and holds off the remaining dogs while they escape. Jill and Angela make their way to the kitchen, once again they are confronted by the pack of dogs. They creep through the kitchen quick enough to reach the exit and are rescued by Alice. They regroup with L.J. and Carlos Olivera, who informs them he and Nicholai --- who is found dead in the cafeteria --- were also sent by Ashford to rescue his daughter.

The group uses a pay phone outside of the school to contact Doctor Ashford, he informs them that the only way out of the city is on Umbrella helicopter at City Hall. The group travels to city hall and take out the Umbrella soldiers guarding the area. As the group boards the helicopter they are taken hostage by Timothy Cain. After a brief battle between Alice and Nemesis, Jill and the others are freed from their restraints. Jill secures Angela and joins in the fight against Umbrella soldiers. When the threat is neutralized, they board a helicopter and leave Raccoon City just as the nuclear warhead lands on the city. The helicopter is thrown into a tail spin and crashes just outside the city, somewhere in the Arklay Mountains. During the crash Alice was hit by a shard from the plane and was injured to the point of no hope, but the others escaped before Umbrella arrived.

At an unknown point in time, Jill and the others sent Terri's recording of the outbreak to the news; their efforts, however, are thwarted by Umbrella, who circulate the false story of a nuclear reactor meltdown as the cause of the city's destruction. Their proof discredited as a hoax, Jill and Carlos are wanted by the authorities.

Three weeks after the Raccoon City incident, Jill, Carlos, L.J., and Angela, learn of Alice's survival and infiltrate Umbrella Detroit Medical Facility as Alice regains her memories and escapes. Unaware of Sam Isaacs' aid and the "Project Alice" program, they secure Alice from Umbrella and depart from facility grounds. Jill inquires what happened to Alice while she was there, she gets no response.

Resident Evil: ExtinctionEdit

Information from the R.A. DeCandido novelization, which is not part of the Anderson continuity, is placed here.

Jill was spotted by Federal Agents after escaping Raccoon City with the others. She surrendered to the authorities to buy the other survivors time to escape. After being interrogated, she was taken to San Francisco to advise local police and military on how to deal with the undead threat.

Over the next five years, Jill traveled the wasteland of North America, occasionally taking survivors to join up with the convoy that Carlos and L.J. were members of. She herself, however, had little interest in being part of a group, and stayed on her own.

Jill arrived in the ruins of Baltimore, where she stumbled upon a ruthless group of survivors holed up in the city convention center. They attempted to mug her, she escaped, killing two of her would-be murderers in the process. Continuing through the city, she discovered that the hundred or so humans outside of the convention center gang were slowly being killed off, either by starvation, murder, or the t-Virus. Gathering them together, she sought the aid of a former Baltimore police officer named Jasper, appealing to him by reminding him of the oath they as police officers took: "to protect and serve." With the city's other surviving inhabitants, they succeeded in retaking the convention center, establishing Baltimore as one of the few havens still available to humanity. She intended to leave once this was done, but Jasper convinced her to stay, arguing that she was the leader they needed.

Originally, Jill Valentine was to appear in Resident Evil: Extinction as the leader of the convoy. Her role would've have been major and involved a subplot concerning her resentment toward Alice for killing Angela while under the control of Umbrella and her eventual sacrifice for the convoy when she became infected by a zombified Carlos.[8] However, Sienna was unable reprise her role as Jill because of scheduling conflicts with Eragon. As a result, she was written out of the movie and replaced with Ali Larter as Claire Redfield.

Afterlife and RetributionEdit


Sienna Guillory in Afterlife post credits

Now controlled by Umbrella, Jill and dozen Umbrella soldiers have been sent to eliminate all remaining survivors, including primary targets, Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield and "Project Alice". She informs her soldiers to take no prisoners and shoot to kill, and that they'll be in for the fight of their lives. She and her unit attacks the Arcadia and successfully captures the survivors aboard the ship.

Under the command of the Red Queen, Jill hunts Alice and Ada Wong down with orders to capture them. She captures Ada and is later confronted by Alice above the Umbrella facility she was held captive in. The two then engage in hand to hand combat as Leon Kennedy and Luther West fight the clone of Rain Ocampo. Just as Jill was preparing to kill Alice, Alice ripped the scarab device controlling her off her chest and shot the device, returning Jill to normal.

Alice joins in the fight against Rain, who had just killed Luther and injured Leon. After a serious beating, Alice notices the undead below the frozen sea. Jill throws Alice her gun, allowing her to shoot the ice where Rain was standing, causing her to fall through and be eaten by the undead. Jill, along with Ada, Leon, Alice and Becky, are present when Albert Wesker returns Alice's powers to her and later explains his plot for his final stand against the Red Queen and the undead.

Skills and AbilitiesEdit

Jill is shown to be a skilled marksman and hand to hand fighter, she displays prowess in eliminating zombies with little trouble however Jill admits that she isn't as good in hand to hand combat compared to Alice.

In Retribution Jill's abilities are enhanced while she's controlled by the Scarab as shown with her being able to lift Alice with one hand along with Jill being more agile, interestingly Jill was able to activate a motorized vehicle with a simple glance. With the Scarab's removal it's likely that Jill's abilities are returned to normal.

Further notesEdit

  • Natasha Henstridge was asked to play the role of Jill Valentine,[9] but could not accept due to "other work commitments".[10]
  • Her appearance at the end of Afterlife, as well as her outfit, is a nod to Jill as she appeared in Resident Evil 5.
  • Sienna Guillory based her movements of Jill by watching the way the character moved in the game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.[11]
