“We're partners... to the end.”
—Sheva to Chris before boarding the BSAA boat.
Sheva Alomar was an agent from the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance's West African branch. She was assigned to the current mission to assist Chris Redfield, who was unfamiliar with the area. A versatile fighter with extensive experience, her ability to use firearms were on par with Chris. She is much smaller and more flexible than Chris, enabling her to perform certain maneuvers that Chris cannot. In turn, this allows Chris to throw her up to high ledges, or over large gaps in order to reach areas or objectives that a lone operative couldn't reach.
At the age of eight, Sheva's parents died in what appeared to be a factory accident at Umbrella Plant 57. Her uncle came to take Sheva and house her in his home along with seven other children. One day, Sheva ran away from her uncle's house into the Savannah, where she was found by a truck driver who housed and fed her. But little did she know that this truck driver was a member of the guerrilla group.
She later joined the anti-government guerrilla group, where she learned that what happened to her parents was much more than a simple accident. The factory was the location of a final test of one of Umbrella's many B.O.W.s. With the help of the government's army, Umbrella erased Sheva's village and its inhabitants once the test was complete.
Sheva remained with the guerrillas through her childhood. She was fifteen when she was contacted by American operatives to stop Umbrella from selling a B.O.W. to the guerrillas. With Sheva's help, the operatives stopped the deal and apprehended the Umbrella salesman. The man who initially contacted Sheva offered her a chance to start her life again in America. Sheva accepted. Within months, Sheva was speaking English like a native and enrolled in a university two years later. After graduation, her benefactor suggested she join the BSAA while Umbrella had dissolved years before this. Sheva's hatred of Umbrella and all others like them led her to join the BSAA Sheva was assigned to Josh Stone's unit for eight months for training. Upon completion of her training, the BSAA chose her to become an agent.
