is a player character and one of the main protagonists of Capcom's Resident Evil series. Chris debuted as the protagonist of the first Resident Evil video game, along with Jill Valentine, and is one of the two protagonists of the game Resident Evil Code: Veronica, in which he looks for his missing younger sister, Claire, and one of the main characters of Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Chris returned as the protagonist of Resident Evil 5, working alongside his new partner Sheva Alomar, and also appears in the latest installment of the game series, Resident Evil: Revelations, as well as in several other games and the film Resident Evil: Afterlife. He is one of the three protagonists of the game Resident Evil 6. The character received a somewhat mixed (in particular regarding his later redesign) but generally positive critical reception. According to PlayStation Universe, Chris is "as synonymous with the venerable horror series as the zombies and unintentionally hilarious, cheese-tastic dialogue" and along with Jill forms "the nucleus" of the series.
