Bio:

Evelyn Veronica Edwards – Cortex Hacker

Played by: Jackie Boone
(Julia Styles)

EVE is a 34 year old female who has been with the crew for 2 ½ years and enjoys the many adventures she goes on with them. * EVE* wears contacts so she can see far away, but will often be found during down time wearing her glasses. She likes to keep her dark wavy hair with plum highlights down most of the time, but will often put it up in a messy arrangement when she is working or anxious about something. She enjoys wearing stylish and comfortable clothes. Because EVE has money in a separate account she can often be found looking in the shops and stalls she comes across during her travels.

EVE can often be found wearing black, because it is able to be worn in multiple settings, but enjoys dressing up when she can. Usually wearing a pocket on her belt which contains her source box (source box has a band on the back to hold). Also carries 2 USB drives – one containing viruses and one containing codes in order to hack into the system after the drive has been inserted into a system.

Evelyn, known as EVE is a cortex hacker from Osiris. She was raised in a family well connected with the Alliance by her parents, Reginald and Veronica. She has four siblings, Reginald Jr., Mitchell, Caili Mei, and Cordelia. She is closest with Mitchell and Caili, and often finds disagreement when she is with Reginald Jr. EVE’s family was primarily atheist, but she has found comfort in the teachings of Buddha. In fact, when EVE was young she and her sister, Caili, would go to the Buddhist Temple with their mother’s sister, Belinda (nee Wei) Wynn. This is where EVE learned the teachings of Buddha.

EVE was educated in the most prestigious schools Osiris had to offer. At an early age she showed a keen interest in technology and so she was enrolled in the best extracurricular activities working with technology. Reginald Sr held high hopes that EVE would follow in his footsteps and work for the Alliance. EVE eventually went to the University of Osiris for her undergraduate and graduate degrees. While she was at university, EVE became involved in an underground network of hackers. It was through this network that EVE learned about the Dark Zone of the Cortex. She was recruited by the government to utilize her knowledge of the Cortex to bring down brown coats, but refused to do so after discovering the Alliance had some questionable activity.

EVE strayed from the family and worked for Blue Sun Corp, being recruited by her sister’s then boyfriend and now husband, Gregory Rutherford. While working at Blue Sun EVE was able to assist many people in righting wrongs committed against them. This activity included helping brown coats as well as alliance members. It was also while working here that EVE met and dated Bennett Tao. Though the two are no longer engaged, EVE remains in touch with Bennett and will often meet with him when she is away from the crew. Many of the crew members are not familiar with Bennett, however, Dionnea knows about him.
Left home when she was 29 because she was disowned for helping the brown coats.

Personality
EVE is typically happy. She tries to see the positive in every situation and often tries to avoid the negative though it does happen from time to time. She is serious when needed and always willing to lend a helping hand. EVE does have moments of quiet when she does not want to interact with people, but is generally outgoing and willing to speak with anyone around her. EVE is often shy and will wait until others express their opinions before giving hers. However, she is bold when issuing her opinion regarding things she is knowledgeable about (i.e. cortex, computers) or when speaking about helping others. She enjoys quiet time alone in her bunk reading her antique novels that she picks up while out in the markets, bazaars, or while on vacation. It takes a lot of energy for EVE to become angry, but once she does watch out! EVE is generally optimistic, but does have periods of pessimism when she needs to take a break and recharge. After all, why do you think EVE went on vacation? She likes to keep things close to her chest sharing only what she has to with those around her. Duplaix and Dionea know some of the information regarding EVE’s background, but not all (need to discuss with Duplaix and Dionea what they know)

EVE does not like when she is called a “useless woman” or being insulted because she is a woman. She has had this occur and it seems to spur EVE into full steam ahead mode. EVE will sometimes have memories of positive events in her life that will lead to a sad thought. Example: The last time EVE saw her entire family they were gathered around the table having family dinner. It was a relaxed event, something that didn’t typically happen, with all of her siblings, their spouses, her parents, and nieces and nephews. It was not long after this when. EVE’s father and mother disowned her for being “sympathetic to the Brown Coats”. They had discovered that EVE was helping to get information from the cortex related to an Alliance officer arresting a rebel for a crime which she didn’t commit. (need to think of officer name, woman’s name, and crime that was committed)

EVE is trustworthy. She will trust anyone after they are vetted, but has difficulty trusting once a person is disloyal/has betrayed her. She is honest, but sometimes she tells small lies in order to accomplish a means to an end. EVE views her different personas when going on missions as acting and not necessarily telling a lie. For this reason, EVE’s moral lines are slightly blurred depending on the situation. Is it really so bad that she’s hacking into the Alliance system when she’s just trying to help some people out? She thinks not. EVE is generally affectionate with most people, especially those she knows, but she is often aloof when utilizing the cortex or seeking information.

EVE is a planner who likes to accomplish things step by step. She likes to study the outcomes of what may possibly happen through all scenarios. EVE would rather be prepared for something rather than have to impulsively do something. She always carries her trusty source box and extra money on her person at all times for this reason. Although EVE likes to be prepared, she is able to adapt to change and will often go along with whatever happens.

Affectionate with other known people. Will speak / engage with others. Will not engage with people who have wronged her.
Social Drinker.
Bouncy Walker.
Disclosure:
Will listen to everyone’s stories, but does not share about her familial history. Dionaea and Duplaix know parts of *Eve*’s back story, but not all.

Conformity:
In line with most of societal norms. Helps the needy. Helps those wronged does not give into pressure of marrying.

Dry humor
Sarcasm
Enjoys jokes.

Reginald (Hiroyuki Sanada) – 66 – High level government worker engaged in espionage and was often involved in money laundering. Comes from New Melbourne (boarder planet). Came to Osiris when he was 20 years old. Met Veronica as a one night stand- only reason they married is because she was pregnant with Reginald Jr. Is the Director of Department of Intelligence for the Alliance. Last saw EVE about five years ago when she was disowned for helping rebels and it wasn’t understood why she left government work.

Veronica (Catherine Zeta Jones) – 62 – (nee Wei) Former companion; involved in trading alliance secrets acquired from Reginald & their high-powered friends. From Osiris. Married Reginald because she was pregnant with Reginald Jr. This was planned on her part because she knew he was working on special projects for the Department of Intelligence and wanted to have a way to access information when needed. Loves her children, but also sees them as a way to accomplish and get what she wants. Will she have a use for Reginald Sr. when he retires in four years or will she kill him with poison? Always looking for what will provide her with the best outcome- a quality she passed on to her youngest daughter, Cordelia. Unhappy with Eve for choosing to work instead of marrying like her sister Caili did.

Mitchell (Matthew Macfadyen) – 38 – Tech officer; not fan of parents, helps Eve get out of government, still communicates. Often gets involved in relationships, but nothing lasting because of what he has witnessed between his parents. He is always looking to do the right thing.

Last saw EVE while EVE was on vacation – went to theater with Caili Mei and Sammy.

A busy business consultant who looks at men as conquests and is often found in the best restaurants in Capital City. Will sometimes meet Amelia (Reginald Jr.’s wife) to have lunch so that people will not discover that she is helping Reginald Jr. fix things within the alliance.

Fitzgerald “Fitzy” O’Connor (Karl Urban) – 34 – Friend met at school; continued on through university together; went to jail to protect Eve from law after hacking scheme was uncovered. Objective is to show what the alliance is actually doing to people. Rough around the edges, but a big softie when you get to know him.

Last saw EVE when he went to prison protecting her. The two have been communicating via letters ever since Fitzy went to the penal colony. EVE uses a PO Box with a different name so as not to attract attention to her and Fitzy’s relationship. EVE visits Fitzy every year on his birthday and brings him honey cake and news of her adventures.
He is investigating the murder-suicide of his parents because he believes this to be a cover up of an act committed by the Alliance.

Dionaea – friend from university kept in touch over years, utilizing each other’s skills. “The crow flies at midnight” is a code they developed to be used during times of distress or needed cover-up. This code has only gotten them in trouble once, when Sully thought that Di and EVE were fooling around after he found a bra in the engine room. The bra belonged to a female, Kaylee, whom Levi had a tryst with.
