Biography[]

Childhood[]

Jade and Billie Wesker were born around 2008 as part of a genetics experiment conducted by Albert Wesker, an Umbrella Corporation executive who then retired to raise them. Though born together through a surrogate, they had separate biological parents on at least their mothers' side. The two had an upper-middle class upbringing, supported by Albert, who's parenting style shifted from controlling to inattentive. As teenagers, the two began acting out deliberately to cause problems, though their own relationship fell apart when Jade continued to push Billie to rebel following a threat of expulsion.

Moving to New Raccoon City[]

In 2022, Albert was offered his old executive position with Umbrella, and the family moved to New Raccoon City where Umbrella HQ was situated. Jade immediately hated living in the city, which she saw more as a facsimile of a real town set-up by the company. At school Jade fit in well, though became defensive when Billie became the target of persistent physical and cyberbullying. After witnessing further bullying on their second day, Jade purposely assaulted one of the bullies while wearing a costume and planted it in Billie's locker in an attempt to give her a reputation. The stunt almost resulted in Billie's expulsion and criminal charges, though was settled by their father's intervention.[1]

In the evening following the assault, Jade and Billie reconciled and began plans to infiltrate Umbrella HQ, having learnt from Billie that the company was conducting animal testing. Being plaid by Billie, Jade gave in and the two stole Albert's phone and keycard to fool their way through the building's security system. With her own experience, Jade brought a torch along to cover their faces when passing CCTV cameras. The infiltration was successful, and they made their way into level B4 where the experiments were conducted. While Billie focused her attention on taking photographic proof of animal testing, Jade instead used her father's passwords to read top-secret company files where she discovered information on the 1998 Raccoon City incident, which had been successfully covered-up. While preparing to leave the lab, the two were attacked by an escaped mutant doberman and were chased back to the ground floor. When their attempts to hide in offices failed, they ran for the entrance instead. During their escape, however, Billie was mauled by the dog and Jade had to bash it to death with a fire extinguisher.[1]

Afterwards, Umbrella's U.S.S. operators make their way to the building but the pair is found first by their father who offers to perform emergency surgery himself at home, unwilling to risk them going to Umbrella's hospital. At home, Albert attends to Billie, and is forced to explain to the girls that the dog was being treated for a "rare genetic disease" and demands the girls to never mention trespassing, warning them that Umbrella was working on classified "government" projects which risk would guarantee a severe punishment if discovered.[2]

Finding out the truth of Umbrella's coverups and their birth[]

As Jade watches him examining Billie's corneas for discolouration, she goes on her laptop to investigate Umbrella's Tijuana lab she saw on the video. She finds one website claiming to have "The Truth", but it is blocked by her ISP.

Jade asks Simon for help in accessing a particular website with the firewall successfully bypassed, and discovers stolen reports of an outbreak at the facility that caused infected employees to begin eating one another. Jade uses the site's comment section to post her email for further discussions.[2]

His story went unpublished due to Umbrella's efforts to kill the story, and he was fired. Their conversation is cut when Jade is found by Ms. Underwood and told to go to class; the reporter is shocked to hear her name as "Wesker", being familiar with that name.[2]

After school, Jade heads home to check on Billie's condition but is shunned away. Jade eventually gets an email by Simon who has downloaded a page from Angel's website and sent it to her. It details allegations of illegal human experimentation conducted by Umbrella. This includes records recovered by an unknown source, including information on Lisa Trevor. On the next day, Jade and Simon discuss on getting more notes from Angel Rubio but a surprise update to Umbrella's firewall prevents them from acquiring more information which sparks an argument between Jade and Simon as he is reluctant on bypassing it again. An heavily ill Billie arrives to see them fighting which prompts her to overreact and punch both before leaving.
