J'avo (ジュアヴォ Juavu~o?) is a file in Resident Evil 6. It can be obtained in Chapter 1 of Chris Story. As with all files in the game, the bottom part of this file can only be read on RE.NET.


The C-Virus will turn human hosts into creatures called J'avo. These creatures lose all self control, but they fail to exhibit any noticeable drop in mental functions. This would explain reports of J'avo skillfully handling firearms and communicating with other J'avo in their country's native tongue. J'avo will tend to follow the final orders they were given before being infected with the C-Virus, and they will do this with no thought for their own safety or well-being.

The virus creates an intense febrile state in the host, and the more the host is damaged, the hotter it becomes. Many J'avo have been seen to succumb to their wounds, burning to death in bright, hot flames that engulfed their bodies.

That being said, what would normally be a mortal wound is quickly healed through the effects of the virus. More about this and other characteristics can be seen in this journal entry written by a member of the BSAA.

Our mission in eastern Europe is finally over and it's time to go home. We were up against things called J'avo, an entirely new type of viral mutation. They are agile, smart, and their wounds heal automatically. I would hate to see any of these get loose on the general public.
