According to the character's backstory, at the age of eight, Sheva's parents died in what appeared to be a factory accident, she was taken in by her uncle to live with him and seven other children. Eventually, Sheva ran away and was found by a truck driver who took her in and looked after her, but unknown to Sheva, he was part of a rebel guerrilla group. She later joined the group and soon learned that the factory was actually the location of a final test of one of Umbrella Corporation's bio-organic weapons (BOWs); with the help of the local government, Umbrella destroyed Sheva's village and all inhabitants after the test was complete. Sheva remained with the guerrillas through her childhood. When she reached the age of 15, she was contacted by American operatives to stop Umbrella's attempt to sell a BOW. With Sheva's help, the deal was stopped and Sheva was offered a chance to start a new life in America. Sheva accepted and, within months, she was speaking fluent English and enrolled in a university two years later. After graduation, her benefactor recruited her to join the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), an organization formed by the U.S. federal government, the UN Security Council and the fictitious Global Pharmaceutical Consortium to combat biohazardous threats around the world. 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, in which she excelled and was chosen to become an operative agent assigned to the BSAA's West African department.
Sheva Alomar made her first (and as of 2013, the only) game appearance in Resident Evil 5, where she is the player's ally (and an optional second player character in the co-operative gameplay mode) working with Chris Redfield as his new partner. She gets partnered with Chris Redfield at the start of the Kijuju mission as his new partner, after the loss of his previous partner, Jill Valentine. During the events of the game, Sheva helps Chris to defeat the Tricell corporation's Kijuju conspiracy and the Uroboros plot, in the end together with him destroying the villain Albert Wesker.
In the Resident Evil 5 viral advertising videos, Sheva was played by Naja Hill, while Sheva's voice and motion actress posed for the 2009 calendar while dressed as the character in her various costumes. Two action figures of Sheva were released in the RE5 series by NECA and Hot Toys in 2009. An action figure by Square Enix and a resin kit by SomaliCraft were released only in Japan. A sand globe with Sheva and Chris was included among the pre-order bonuses for the game.
