Life without Freedom literary known as "Life under house arrest" (軟禁生活 Nankin seikatsu) in the original script, is a file that can be found in Resident Evil 6.


Following the Raccoon City Incident, the U.S. government decided to take Sherry Birkin into custody and keep her under observation because of the trace amount of the G-Virus that remained in her blood. Claire Redfield stayed by Sherry's side during the time she had to suffer through daily tests and experiments.

While it was Claire who provided emotional support, it was Derek Simmons who became her legal guardian.

Claire visited Sherry as often as she could, trying to help Sherry overcome all the trauma she had endured. Sherry idolized Claire, and was determined to be just like her: a strong, capable woman. Derek was not without compassion for the orphaned girl, and he allowed Claire, a civilian, to visit and comfort Sherry, even though the girl's existence was a closely guarded state secret.

In total, Sherry spent 11 years in the hands of the government. It wasn't until 2009 that she was given any freedom.

Below is a letter that Claire tried to send to Sherry during this time. The letter was intercepted, but never shown to Simmons. The person who found it sympathized with Sherry and Claire's situation, but couldn't allow it to go to Sherry, so he had it destroyed in secret.


I don't want to make things any harder for you, but I need you to be careful around Simmons. I know he's been supportive and let's me see you, but something's not right with him. I don't have any proof, but I know what people look like when they're hiding something, and I get that feeling every time I look into his eyes. You are so trusting of people, and it worries me. Please just be careful, for my sake.

I'll be busy, so I won't be able to come and see you for a little while. Keep being your cheerful self.
