ABOUT
“What we know matters but who we are matters more.”

'Who am I?' A bear? A bird? A woman? Or a little girl lost in the woods trying to find herself? 'Who am I? Who am I supposed to be?'

That's the question that has haunted Eva for many years. Everytime she feels she's close to figuring out who she's and what she meant to achieve life throws her a curve ball and she loses her ground again. It all began when she was still a little girl who dreamed about becoming a true leader to her people and making her family proud. Her father was Edgar Perez, a former alpha of a Bear Clan and Eva just wanted to be like him.

Life had other plans for Eva and at age of five she was sent from her hometown in Stevenson, Washington to Somerset, Pennsylvania. Eva went from being the oldest daughter of an former Alpha to a refugee, just one more child with no family. She was stripped of her identity for the first time in her life; lost her anchor in a way, but she thrived. She set goals to herself; she wanted to learn. She was a born bear and that was who she was meant to be. She felt it deep in her bones.

She was welcomed into the Wilkes sleuth and learned from and with them; grew to love them as a family. Eva worked hard to fit in and earn her place within the sleuth but never forgetting her origins. She would go back home one day. It was a matter of timing. The desire to go home and reclaim her true identity grew stronger when the news of the murder of her entire family along with the clan royals reached Somerset. Eva was devastated and she cried for a family she didn't remember well. She cried until she had no more tears left and then she never cried again.

Eva's father saved her life by casting her away and the resentment that she felt for being sent away turned into guilt for being the sole survivor; a guilt that fueled her growing thirst for revenge. Going home didn't mean just reclaiming her identity anymore. It meant avenging her family and destroying those who hunted and killed them.

Eva's whole mindset shifted into warrior mode from that moment on. Nothing else mattered. Her objective was to grow stronger and more skilled each day. A true warrior. A person whose name would be able to bring fear to the enemies. Eva practiced every day for the next few years. She was relentless in her pursue for wisdom and strength. The Wilkes taught her how to fight; she learned different martial arts; she went through weapons training. She was going to become the kind of warrior she felt the Wilkes would be proud of. The kind of bear who belonged with them.

She was in her early 20's when Eva decided it was time to take the mark and be claimed by the Great Spirit. Eva would finally be a bear. She was ready. The full moon came and Eva was marked only to be claimed by the Great Bird Spirit instead. She felt betrayed. She felt wronged and lost once again. For as long as she could remember she had been a bear and now suddenly that didn't matter and she was a bird. But who was she if not a bear? Who was she if not the only living child of Edgar Perez? Who was she if not part of the Wilkes sleuth?

“I've lived too long with pain. I won't know who I am without it.”

Eva lost her identity a second time the moment the Great Bird Spirit claimed her. All the training and preparation, all the hard work and the years planning a revenge - that seemed to have lost its meaning- it was all for nothing. Eva didn't understand why the Great Spirit took away everything that was the most precious to her. Was this a lesson she was being taught? To what purpose? She was bear...no! She had been a bear. Her heart would always remain one, but her duty was now bird.

She had to carry on and rebuild herself; adapt to this unexpected change in her life that conflicted with everything she knew and loved. Eva Perez would find a way to thrive once again despite the turmoil of conflicting emotions in her heart. Now a bird, she requested permission to change allegiances and shifted to the Avery Cast. She conquered her place in the Royal Guard. She aspired to better herself every day; to be the best version of herself she could possibly be.

Eva felt a deep sense of honor in serving the Avery Cast. She might not always understand their methods or feel like she truly belongs with them, but the cast would always be a priority despite her personal feelings. Eva was willing to make sacrifices in order to fulfill her obligations. She wouldn't allow what happened to her family's clan to repeat itself here. She wouldn't admit agitators; she wouldn't allow anyone to question the clan leaders.

Her role as a warrior and a member of the Royal Guard defined her over the past decade. She sought new challenges and learning experiences. She became an EMT fulfilling a need to help people; she taught classes at Modern Kyoshitsu which not only allowed her to keep training but it kept her close to one of the people she admired the most in her life, Callie Wilkes, the Bear Alpha. Eva would always feel grateful for the home the Wilkes gave her and the death of the former Alpha would always feel like a personal failure to her. If she was Bear, if she was the Bear Kappa maybe she could've done something.

Her work at the Modern Kyoshitsu also allowed her to train and observe new Royal Guard recruits. Eva was known for her strict training. She was hard on the students. She found it necessary to be hard on them and she was successful in what she did. She was proud of everything she achieved, but it cost her and there would always be something broken inside of her; something off that unbalanced her. It often felt like her gravity center shifted without warning and it was hard for her to find her balance again.

Despite the impression of control and conviction that she displayed Eva continued to struggle over who she was. She constantly felt like she was being pulled towards different directions and the arrival of a Thierry "Tank" Pierron felt like another hit she was taking. He showed up one day, became part of the Wilkes Clan and then he was Beta.

It should be her in his place and she resented him for that. She wanted to hate him too; she wanted him to be a bad man and expose him, but Eva knew it was unjust of her. She simply envied him. Tank fitted in easily while she always had to fight hard for every single thing in her life. She had to reinvent herself over and over and even after all these years Eva still doesn't know who was she supposed to be.

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”

PLATONIC
Eva has been in town for over thirty years and she's likely made several friends over the years. She's not that hard to get along with; she's wary of strangers, but around friends she's compassionate and good-natured. Eva does have her own code of honor that might complicate several of her relationships, though. She's torn as far as her identity as a bird is concerned. Eva feels a personal connection to bears; she was born bear and grew up a bear. Eva's close to many of them, but her allegiance and duty lies with the Avery Cast. She's extremely loyal and integrity prevents her from following her heart at times. Eva doesn't feel an emotional attachment to the birds and questions the Great Spirit choice for her.
ANTAGONISTIC
Eva has no tolerance for people who break their word and she will immediately label them as liabilities and possible, traitors. They are no trustworthy in her eyes. She also won't admit anyone putting in doubt the Avery clan or its leadership. Eva believes in her duty above everything else and she won't hesitate on making an example of anyone who dares to threaten the clan or taint its name. Eva doesn't trust people who won't take sides or who won't stand up for what they believe in. Be for or against her, it doesn't matter but make a choice.

She doesn't like hunters, but she tries not to take their actions personally. Besides, their existence mean she has someone to fight in times of peace.

DESIRED PLOTS
- A conflict between Eva and someone in the Avery clan who might put in question her loyalty, possibly a newer member as I feel like the old members would know where she stands regardless of her inner struggles concerning bears and birds.

- It'd be interesting if someone involved (directly or indirectly) in the murder of her family and the taker over that came from those murders showed up in town. One of Eva's desires was to be a bear and return home to claim what she always felt it was rightfully hers but she's a bird and that idea of revenge is still there, burning under her skin but she can't do anything about it. Whatever claim she felt she had is gone and in a way she feels like she failed her family. Someone seeing this and trying to use it against her could be a fun plot to play out.

- Friendship with bears and birds too. Eva is serious about duty and her work, but she's genuine about her intentions and she just wants to protect the cast and those who are dear to her. She wants to train and lead fierce warriors in battle in order to protect her people at all costs. She cares.

- Thierry Pierron: this giant came in and stole her place with the bears and she wants to hate him for becoming what she worked to hard to become and couldn't. He's not easy to hate, though. They have to work together as members of the Royal Guard and training the new recruits. It's really too much sometimes <3.

TRIGGERS: HARM TO CHILDREN, PEEPS ON A PIZZA
Eve + Thierry
Ahhh so pumped to get these two started! Whenever you're ready let me know and we can start.



Eve + Sabrina
Sabrina O'Sullivan is an event planner and is still within her first year as being a werebird. When she first decided to take the bite, it was her intention of becoming a wolf like the rest of her soon-to-be in-laws. Well, that didn't happen. She was claimed by the Great Bird spirit instead. Currently, she has been dealing with the abilities that come with being a bird & ended up getting lost in the spirit realm. Finn finally called Winona Avery to help and you can read what's going on HERE if you want.

When the thread is over, Winona plans to bring Sabrina back to the main Avery house to train her more closely. This might be a good time to have them meet on a more personal note. Sabrina would need to learn how to better guard herself and what it means to actually be a bird. That, and they'd have something in common with wanting one animal and getting another.




Eve + Nora
Nora is a human and was recently introduced to Somerset in December when she, her sister, and their half-brother arrived followed by a wendigo attack. Her sister, Chloe, was bitten without permission and later turned on the first moon in January. Since then, she's taken up a position as a medical examiner and learning about the town as a whole. Chloe is also going to be interested in the Royal Guard later. So this will give these two a connection in a sense. If anything, they could just know each other from the hospital when those lost sounds ended up in the morgue instead of a hospital room.

Eve + Winona
Winona is the alpha of the Avery cast and might have been just as confused about Eva's claim than anyone else. She's learned over the years to trust the spirits and would have tried to help make sense of what happened. Either way, with Eva being as skilled and powerful as she is now, Winona would not have complained. She is an example of what the alpha wishes a lot of the younger generation should be.

Eric + Eva
Eric has been with the Avery cast for a couple of years. He was turned by a master associated with the clan and together they traveled/scouted around the world in order to pass information back to the Averys about any dangers, etc. When wendigos ambushed and murdered his master, Eric found his way to Somerset for protection. Since then, he comes and goes, continuing the work his master started.

When he's in town, he stayed in a place just outside of the Avery main house and does private stylist to those clients he likes and will pay well. He also loves to do parties and is pretty extravagant.

It's possible, if you want, that it was Eric's master who delivered the news about Eva's family when she was younger. Could even say she asked him to keep her updated on whoever it was that killed them. Eric might have kept up with the favor since he has a lot of his master's old contacts still.

Kenesaw + Eva
Alrighty so Kenesaw here is the cousin of Wenona and Dyani who only popped back into Somerset long term a couple months back. He got a message from the Great Bird that said he should come home rather than continuing to travel; however, he's not so keen on the fact Wenona's expecting him to take over as alpha some day if anything happens to her and Dyani. While he's not outright disrespectful, he's not hesitant about raising his own doubts and asking questions so he just might rub Eva the wrong way plus he's a pacifist by nature which is directly at odds with her goals for training soldiers! XD



Callie + Eva
An old friend! I imagine Callie tried from day one to make sure Eva always knew she had a place with them and do whatever to help her feel welcome. She can't help being a little motherly despite Eva being less than a decade younger than her. It probably saddened her a bit when Eva didn't become a bear, though she (as well as her parents) would have made sure to let her know it changed nothing of how they felt about her plus several of her kids went something other than bear later on so perhaps she sought out Eva to help them a little?

There's also the gym to be a tie between them, though Callie isn't there quite as much now with her alpha duties; however, she'd feel better knowing Eva was there to take up some of the slack alongside the other and probably still checks in on Eva's personal training.




Pixie + Eva
Pixie's a coyote who joined up with the royal guard almost three years ago and comes into the gym fairly regularly to train with the others. Given the pink hair and lack of a filter, she's super hard to miss! Perhaps she could test out her skills against Eva, maybe learn to do a little more self-defense than being so offensive with her fighting?
