Saint Fausta, also known as Saint Fausta of Cyzicus (298 - 311), was a 4th-century girl who at age 13 was arrested, tortured, and executed for being a Christian. Evilasius was responsible for torturing and executing her. Evilasius converted to Christianity after watching her courageous death and was also martyred for this act.[1]
