Listed within this file is a general background information overview of former S.T.A.R.S. agent - Jill Valentine - as pieced together from various sources. The information listed here is neither complete nor should it be used as a psychological analysis of the subject.

When a crisis situation arises, few soldiers excel to the level of Jill Valentine. She is proficient in the use of various firearms, is a master of lock picking, and is skilled in the disposal of explosives.

Jill's talents make her an integral component of any fighting force.

Like Chris Redfield, Jill was a member of the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha Team. She was also involved in the tragedy at the Arklay Research Facility (also known as the "Mansion Incident"). During the incident, Jill and Chris operated independently, but together discovered the truth behind the facility.

They learned that Barry Burton was not really a traitor, but was being controlled by Albert Wesker, Captain of Alpha Team. In addition to Wesker's machinations, they also learned the source of the zombie outbreak was due to the release of the T-Virus, and that Umbrella was more than just an ordinary pharmaceutical company.

What Jill learned at the Arklay Research Facility would have profound repercussions on the rest of her life.

Following their return from the mansion, Chris and Jill attempted to inform the authorities of Umbrella's activities. For all their good intentions, they were met with no movement towards any official investigation into the company.

Fed up with the lack of response, the two took it upon themselves to investigate Umbrella. They concentrated their efforts on Umbrella's main base of operations in Europe. As a S.T.A.R.S. member entrusted with protecting Raccoon City, Jill chose to remain in the city for the time being and investigate the Umbrella research facility there before rendezvousing with Chris in Europe.

This decision led to her involvement in the Raccoon City incident.

During her investigation, rodents infected with the T-Virus from the Arklay Research Facility began to spread the virus into the city. The virus quickly spread, infecting a majority of the residents. Umbrella, the perpetrators behind this incident, reacted swiftly.

Umbrella sent in the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) to handle the situation, and they also dispatched the bioweapon Nemesis T-Type to take out any surviving S.T.A.R.S. members, who Umbrella now considered a threat.

Jill attempted to escape from Raccoon City all the while being hunted by the Nemesis T-Type. During this time she encountered a member of the U.B.C.S. team, Carlos Oliveira.

Carlos claimed his team was on a rescue mission to save any survivors in Raccoon City. Having no reason to doubt that mission's purpose, he proposed to help Jill escape. Jill, on the other hand, had her doubts. However, the situation had reached critical proportions and Jill did not have the luxury of time.

The U.S. government was planning on containing the spread of the virus by launching a special missile strike on the city called Operation: Bacillus Terminate. When Jill became infected with the T-Virus as a result of Nemesis T-Type, she despaired of even being able to get out alive.

Fortunately for her, Carlos was there to help.

Carlos obtained a cure to the T-Virus infection and gave it to Jill. After her recovery, she worked with Carlos and they successfully escaped from Raccoon City.

In 2003, after operation: T-A.L.O.S., Jill and Chris became two of the original eleven founding members of the BSAA, and joined them in their fight against bioweapons and bioterrorism around the world.

Chris and Jill stopped bioweapons in Asia, destroyed bioweapon labs in South America, arrested smugglers in Europe, and patrolled the world in an attempt to stamp out all bioweapons. Throughout their activities, while they may have suspected the long fingers of Umbrella as being involved, they never had any conclusive proof.

Those long fingers, however, would turn out to be connected to the hands of Umbrella's founder, Ozwell E. Spencer.

The pair received intel on Spencer's whereabouts and rushed off to arrest him only to find their former Captain and hated enemy, Albert Wesker. Seeing Spencer's crumpled corpse on the ground, the two changed their plans to arrest Wesker instead.

In a two-on-one fight, Chris and Jill should have had the advantage, but Wesker's strength and agility were well beyond that of any normal human. For all their training, Jill and Chris were no match for Wesker.

As Wesker was about to end Chris's life, Jill made the ultimate sacrifice. Lunging at Wesker, she threw both herself and him out of a window, and over the side of a cliff.

Chris could do nothing as he watched his partner fall to her death.

BSAA launched a full-scale search operation, but neither Jill's body nor any of her personal effects were ever recovered.

On November 23, 2006, Jill Valentine was officially declared dead, and her name was added to the list of BSAA members who died in the line of duty.

But Jill's story did not end there.

The fall did not kill Jill nor Wesker. Though badly hurt and unconscious, Jill was saved by Wesker. After giving her the medical treatment she required, he placed her in a cryogenic sleep. Once the Uroboros Plan was finalized, Wesker intended to use her as the first test subject.

This was Wesker's way of exacting his revenge.

Fortunately for Jill, luck was on her side.

The apparatus monitoring her vital signs detected some abnormalities. Something was happening inside Jill's body, and Wesker's curiosity was piqued. Further investigation showed that a mutated form of the T-Virus was still inside her body. It was a remnant from her infection in Raccoon City.

The cure she was given was supposed to have eradicated all traces of the virus in her body, but instead it caused the virus to go into a dormant state. Her extended period in a cryogenic sleep somehow reactivated the virus.

Shortly after being reactivated the T-Virus completely disappeared from her body, but it left something else in its place. Wesker found that Jill's body now contained powerful antibodies to the virus.

All those years the T-Virus was inside her body forced it to develop a defense system that was nothing short of miraculous.

This discovery would help further Wesker's ambitions.

The development of the Uroboros Virus, the centerpiece of the Uroboros Plan, had proven to be quite difficult.

The Uroboros Virus developed from the Progenitor flower proved to be too poisonous to humans to be of much use. Instead of spurring the next step in human evolution, it only invited death.

Wesker theorized that using Jill's antibodies could make the virus less poisonous. He kept Jill alive solely to produce antibodies for his research.

Jill, who had reviled bioweapons and devoted her life to eradicating them, was ironically being used to develop the most terrible bioweapon of all.

After much research and experimentation, Wesker finally perfected the Uroboros Virus. Jill's participation in its development meant she was no longer a suitable test subject. Pure and unadulterated antibodies with high resistance to the virus permeated her body.

Wesker decided he would find a suitable use for her elsewhere.

During the research into the Progenitor virus, an ancillary chemical was discovered. The researchers referred to it as simply - P30. When administered to test subjects, it would not only give them superhuman strength, but also rendered them highly susceptible to control.

P30 was the ultimate performance enhancer.

The aims of the Uroboros Plan were to create a new breed of humans, so P30's application in this plan was inconsequential. However, for the time being it could be marketed as a product and garner additional funding.

Research into creating the ultimate soldiers who didn't resist orders was carried out simultaneously on Las Plagas and P30. Unfortunately, the latter had a severe drawback.

The effects of P30 would only last for a very short time.

An injection of P30 was metabolized and expelled by the body at an expeditious rate requiring readministration of the drug at frequent intervals. This greatly lessened the viability of such a product as a long-term performance enhancer. The only counter to such a drawback was to attach a device to the subject that would continually administer the drug.

While P30's effects were brief, it was still a powerful and effective drug.

The effects of continual administration were untested, as in order to research this aspect further an administration device was attached to Jill.

An external device was attached to Jill's chest that would continually administer the drug to her body. With her freewill constantly being usurped, she remained a servant to Excella and Wesker until Chris and Sheva destroyed the administration device.
