Why does Jill have long blonde hair now?

#1 Posted by Theresonlyone (190 posts) -

Why does she have this hair? Did she dye it while waiting for a role in an RE game? Did they sell her out for sex appeal because in the DLC her battle suit is unzipped further than it is in the main game. it not a major deal but still weird dnt you think?

I don't find it that odd at all

You are questioning selling sex appeal with an avatar featuring two lesbian elves?

Maybe they did it in an attempt to confuse people who saw trailers or spoilers after the game came out.  It doesn't really effect sex appeal or anything.

The japanese finally figured out our fascination with blonde cheerleaders.


In RE6, she'll have poms.

Well, it's not a misnomer. Her BSAA outfit has her sporting brunette hair. So, maybe Wesker wanted to form, with Uroboros, a master Aryan race?

Wesker was controlling her via that plate on her chest, but I'm almost certain that her supernatural power comes from something else.  She's probably been experimented on.

There are story explanations, I think the OP is asking why did the developers decide to change her hair color.

Very good theory.

In all seriousness though, she was put into cryosleep when she was captured by Wesker. Not to mention all the viruses he used on her. Side effects maybe?

OR!

For the sake of fashion, Wesker took Jill to a salon and had it bleached. Sure, he could've purchased a bleach kit and done the job himself, but who wants to touch that cat piss-smelling stuff?

Who really cares, Jill is ugly anyway. So is Sheva. This game is over-the-top Japanese, so give me some Asian women.

P.S. This thread should be about how they can fix Chris' face to actually look like it belongs. His big arms + Nerdy face = No match.

Sure hope that isn't your idea of attractive.
#15 Posted by LiquidPrince (15901 posts) -

Because Wesker likes blonds?

@ Vin, it's my idea of Jill. That's not cosplay. That's Jill! Also known as Inezh. I'd seriously hit it, really. She's the original <3

But, if I was showing cosplay, I'd show this.

That thing on her cheek is bothering me. Looks like a mole or a birthmark? It's just irritating me.

I'm going to take both sides of this argument. I don't think that Inezh is atrocious looking, but she's not that attractive either. However, I have seen this cosplay picture before and I absolutely love Omi Gibson's work.

That thing on her cheek is called a beauty mark. That's what women call them.

I understand that, it just seems out-of-place on her face.

Inezh is the original! She was in a fucking zombie infested mansion with zombie dogs lingering outside! She didn't look her best, OK? She had no make up on, it was a serious MISSION! Of course she didn't look as "I wanna fuck you right now" as Obi does in her photos! Like, Duh! Also, I was 13 when I first saw her. Don't insult my first love, OK? No make up and fighting zombies is TIRING, OK?



It's too bad even Wikipedia has nothing but "Inezh" I wonder what she's doing these days, and how old she is D:

Well, as you see in that pic, the original has long and kinda blonde-ish hair (not really but whatever, close enough). Maybe they grew back after trying different styles? Hair grows. Maybe the color change is another side effect?

There is actually a file in chapter 5-2 that says that prolonged cryostasis made Jill blonde because of pigment loss. (seriously) But yeah, sex appeal.

Practical Reasons:


Needed to be different to Sheva, who would've looked ridiculous with blonde or red hair. So make Jill blonde, everyone wins.

Also water, can't believe you read all those files... hahaha
#27 Edited by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

If you read one of the files that is obtained in the game, it's explained there. One of side effects of the tube that Wesker placed her in, which healed injuries she had, was a pigment abnormality that lightened her hair and made her skin color lighter.

Kombat said:

"Wesker was controlling her via that plate on her chest, but I'm almost certain that her supernatural power comes from something else.  She's probably been experimented on."
Here's part of her file that explains some things:

The fall did not kill Jill nor Wesker. Though badly hurt and unconscious,
Jill was saved by Wesker. After giving her the medical treatment she required,
he placed her in a cryogenic sleep. Once the Uroboros Plan was finalized,
Wesker intended to use her as the first test subject.

This was Wesker’s way of exacting his revenge.

Fortunately for Jill, luck was on her side.

The apparatus monitoring her vital signs detected some abnormalities.
Something was happening inside Jill’s body, and Wesker’s curiosity was piqued.
Further investigation showed that a mutated form of the T-Virus was still
inside her body. It was a remnant from her infection in Raccoon City.

The cure she was given was supposed to have eradicated all traces of the virus
in her body, but instead it caused the virus to go into a dormant state. Her
extended period in a cryogenic sleep somehow reactivated the virus.

Shortly after being reactivated the T-virus completely disappeared from her
body, but it left something else in its place. Wesker found that Jill’s body
now contained powerful antibodies to the virus.

All those years the T-Virus was inside her body forced it to develop a defense
system that was nothing short of miraculous.

This discovery would help further Wesker’s ambitions.

The development of the Uroboros Virus, the centerpiece of the Uroboros Plan,
had proven to be quite difficult.

The Uroboros Virus developed from the Progenitor flower proved to be too
poisonous to humans to be of much use. Instead of spurring the next step in
human evolution, it only invited death.

Wesker theorized that using Jill’s antibodies could make the virus less
poisonous. He kept Jill alive solely to produce antibodies for his research.

Jill, who had reviled bioweapons and devoted her life to eradicating them, was
ironical being used to develop the most terrible bioweapon of all.

After much research and experimentation, Wesker finally perfected the Uroboros
Virus. Jill’s participation in its development meant she was no longer a
suitable test subject. Pure and unadulterated antibodies with high resistance
to the virus permeated her body.

Wesker decided he would find a suitable use for her elsewhere.

During the research into the Progenitor virus, an ancillary chemical was
discovered. The researchers referred to it as simply - P30. When administered
to test subjects, it would not only give them superhuman strength, but also
rendered them highly susceptible to control.

P30 was the ultimate performance enhancer.

The aim of the Uroboros Plan were to create a new breed of humans, so P30’s
application n this plan was inconsequential. However, for the time being it
could be marketed as a product and garner additional funding.

Research into creating the ultimate soldiers who didn’t resist orders was
carried out simultaneously on Las Plagas and P30. Unfortunately, the latter
had a severe drawback.

The effects of P30 would only last for a very short time.

An injection of P30 was metabolized and expelled by the body at an
expeditious rate requiring administration of the drug at frequent intervals.
This greatly lessened the viability of such a product as a long-term
performance enhancer. The only counter to such a drawback was to attach a
device to the subject that would continually administer the drug.

While P30’s effects were brief, it was still a powerful and effective drug.

The effects of continual administration were untested, as in order to research
this aspect further an administration device was attached to Jill.

An external device was attached to Jill’s chest that would continually
administer the drug to her body. With her freewill constantly being usurped, she
remained a servant to Excella and Wesker until Chris and Sheva destroyed the
administration device.
