Biography

Background

Eva and her sire Katya were lovers. The two of them were at Woodstock Music Festival together in 1969, although it is unknown if Eva was still mortal or not at this point. During their relationship, Katya gave Eva a specially engraved ring that Eva kept after the relationship ended. Eva gave Katya a crystal ball that Katya still has.

Katya, who was part of the Camarilla, embraced Eva without permission. When her elder, Maximilian Strauss, found out, he punished Katya and cursed Eva. Eva's curse turned her skin and hair the unnaturally pale (almost white) colors that they are now. Eva has not yet said what the punishment Katya received was, but Eva believed that Katya was dead. Eva ran away from Strauss and the Camarilla. She came to Los Angeles and took up residence in Griffith Park.

Season One

"Mortal Stakes" (1x01)
Eva is first encountered by Jasper, Nelli G, and Victor Temple at Griffith Observatory at the behest of Baron Abrams to identify the clan lineage of a neonate kindred, Annabelle. Using blood sorcery, Eva identified Annabelle as a Brujah of the 13th Generation. She also informed the coterie that some sort of blood magic had already been used on Annabelle but did not identify the source of it. Victor offered Eva a boon as thanks for helping them.

"Who Can You Trust?" (1x08)
At The Succubus Club, Eva told Annabelle and Jasper that she had been the one to cast the blood magic mentioned in "Mortal Stakes" (1x01) on Annabelle. Eva owed Carver a boon. Carver called in the favor by having Eva put a protective ward on Annabelle the night of Annabelle's embrace. The terms of the deal had also prevented Eva from telling Annabelle about it the night they met in Griffith Park. Eva told Annabelle she did not know where Carver is now but did tell Annabelle how to contact him.
