Fictional Biography[edit]

Origin[edit]

Vlad Tepes was a warlord who wanted nothing more than power and a heir to his throne. His pregnant wife could not stand his ruthlessness and lack of mercy and decided to kill herself late into her pregnancy. When Vlad found out, he begged and pleaded with God to resurrect his wife and unborn child. Instead of God, a demon who claimed he was an angel responded to Vlad's cry. The demon said he would resurrect his wife if Vlad agreed to become an "angel" do the bidding of "God". Tepes was then transformed into the monster now known as Dracula, but found that his wife still lay dead, and thought God had tricked him. He buried his wife and unborn child far from the castle from which he ruled his empire.[1] What Dracula didn't know was that the demon resurrected the unborn child instead of his wife, and soon a pack of wolves raised the abandoned child as one of their own until Brother Miran of the Rosebud Monastery found her and raised her in secret. The monks in the monastery found that she had the ability to see the black influences in men and wipe them out. She trained to combat this evil and left the monastery to go and destroy all the evil she could.[2]

Army of Darkness: Ash vs. The Classic Monsters (2006)[edit]

When Ash Williams went back in time to Transylvania, 1499 to retrieve The Spike of The Crucifixion, he met Eva and brought her back to modern-New York City, where Dracula was attempting to take over the world with an army of the undead. She "killed" her father with The Spike of The Crucifixion.[3]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Eva's blood relation to Dracula gives her supernatural abilities. Her enhanced strength, agility, speed and reflexes aid her in combat and allow her to overcome any mortal and most supernatural creatures. She has been seen to side-step bullets fired at almost point-blank range.

She is a skilled swordswoman and possesses great accuracy in throwing small daggers (which are made of silver to combat werewolves).
