Resident Evil (1996)

Jill is one of the protagonists in Resident Evil. She is considered the ideal character to be chosen by novice players, as Jill has a larger inventory space (eight slots compared to Chris who has only six) and has access to the lockpick, which allows her to open locked desks and most of the Mansion doors without having to collect simple keys. She also gets to use a grenade launcher, a weapon exclusive to her scenario and capable of firing several types of rounds. However, she is more susceptible to damage from enemies due to her low health.

Jill's alternate costume varies according to the play version. In all versions (except in Director's Cut), to unlock the costume, the player must complete Jill's story mode with the best ending:
