Jill Valentine, Resident Evil Series

As one of the two primary heroes of the first Resident Evil game, Jill Valentine has long held a place in the hearts of many gamers. A member of S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team, Jill is a well-trained soldier with a knack for picking locks. Plus, she knows how to handle fear, having been in more Resident Evil games than any other character. Whether she's wearing a military outfit or a blue tube top and miniskirt, we'd love to be in the middle of a "Jill Sandwich."
Pros: She's a true survivor and an elite fighting machine, not to mention a drop-dead gorgeous brunette.
Cons: Sadly, we can't exactly claim with 100% certainty that Jill is "disease free."
Was Played By: British actress and model Sienna Guillory, who I had never heard of before "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" but who looks great in the part.

Claire Redfield, Resident Evil Series

While Jill Valentine is the premiere Resident Evil heroine, Claire ain't all bad, either. A college student and motorcycle enthusiast, she's the younger sister of Resident evil hero Chris Redfield. In Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica, Claire searches for her missing brother while dodging infected zombies with Leon Kennedy. Don't let her pink outfit fool you; she's more of a biker chick.
Pros: A rugged beauty, Claire's got a daredevil attitude and is a quick learner when it comes to firearms.
Cons: She seems too attached to her brother to have much interest in other guys.
Will Be Played By: Ali Larter of "Heroes" and "Varsity Blues" fame, though we doubt we'll see Claire in a whipped cream bikini in the upcoming "Resident Evil: Extinction."

Ada Wong, Resident Evil Series

A secondary character in the Resident Evil series, Ada Wong is still a compelling figure as the femme fatale of the popular game series. She makes her first appearance in Resident Evil 2 as a companion to Leon Kennedy. It's later revealed, however, that she's a spy working on behalf of a mysterious outfit looking for the G-Virus. She rises from the dead several - literally - years later to play a role in the acclaimed Resident Evil 4 with her old flame Kennedy.
Pros: An utterly seductive temptress, she oozes sexiness even in zombie infested wastelands.
Cons: She often takes a snotty, condescending tone with people, and she's pretty much a revolving door of lies.
Should be Played By: Kelly Hu, because she'd look great in that red dress.
