Who is Resident Evil’s Sheva?

Sheva Alomar is a Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance operative in West Africa, and in Resident Evil 5, she partners up with series mainstay Resident Evil’s Chris Redfield to help him navigate through this unfamiliar area. She plays a vital role in Redfield’s success in his mission, as she can get to those hard-to-reach places that Chris simply can’t.

Of course, she also aids Chris in his fight against his longtime enemy Albert Wesker, helping him to free his partner and dear friend, Jill Valentine. And yes, she’s also around for the iconic volcanic, boulder-punching fight with the villain.

Sheva doesn’t appear in any other games, but she’s mentioned a couple of times and offers to send the BSAA’s West African branch out to help track down Chris after his disappearance in 2012.

What is Resident Evil Sheva’s personality?

Sheva is a strong and loyal individual that’s keen to help protect the world from bioweapon threats. Her caring nature is on full display when she sends out West African BSAA operatives to track down her friend and former partner, Chris Redfield.
