Resident Evil: The Deck Building Game[]

Sheva appears as a character card in the Resident Evil DBG. She is one of the first ten characters released in the base set. Sheva specializes in Rifles and her abilities reflect that. Her Level 1 effect goes hand-in-hand with the Bolt-Action Rifle's effect by switching a card in the player's hand with the top card of their inventory. This allows the Rifle Sheva is equipped with to successfully activate it's effect; increased damage. Additionally, Sheva's Level 2 effect decreases the amount of ammunition required to use a Rifle by 20. She has 80 health in the game.
