By far the oldest of the Alnwick clan, Eva does not know her age on earth. She knows only that she was alive literally since time began. As the story goes, she was supposedly bitten by a snake whose venom gave her eternal life as a vampire. She has passed through centuries, millenniums and time without ever experiencing the sweet release of death. Eva sought and chose her clan by placing herself in key moments in Earth’s history. Each member of her clan was chosen for their strengths. Eva has chosen well. She is surrounded by strong Vampires and minions who have their own legacy but are eternally grateful and faithful to her. In her modern form, Eva is a lovely Latina woman in her forties. She loves cooking with spices that give her “ingredients” different tastes in the food she prepares for her family. She also loves her friend Elvis’ music, Motown, and fashion. Having witnessed many atrocities against them throughout the ages; she is an advocate for women, children, the meek and the oppressed.
She recognizes her evil, but has chosen to channel her hunger and thirst for humans to those who impart negative and destructive energy into the universe she knows so well. It is an eternal mystery to Eva how (despite knowledge and reason), no matter what one knows and understands, wisdom and logic are still no match for the pangs and longings of the heart. No matter what control one supposedly has over it, and even in its absence, the heart can still be broken.
