Eve (イヴ Ivu) is one of the main characters in the manga and anime series, Black Cat. She is a genetically engineered bio-weapon. She, Sven Vollfied, and Train Heartnet work together as Sweepers.


Appearance

Eve has long, honey blonde hair that also doubles as a weapon in many of her battles. She has bright magenta eyes like her creator Tearju Lunatique (though in the manga Tearju has green eyes). Her vision is better than avenge about 20/13 (1.5 in Japanese measurements). She has the appearance of a young, 11-year-old girl. Later, she cuts her hair into a bob.

Eve's style tends to be a mix of classic femininity and Gothic Lolita. She often wears dresses, bows, and boots. Her preferred color of clothing is black. After being freed from Torneo, her style transforms from a plain black dress and shoes to more elaborate clothing.


Personality

As a genetically modified clone, Eve has a robotic and straightforward personality. Originally accustomed to doing what others instruct her to, she becomes very focused when there's a good bounty. She's also competitive with Train, wishing to replace him as Sven's partner in the manga and generally wanting to be better than him in the anime.

Since Eve was raised in a sterile, closed-off environment, she is initially extremely innocent and naive. She had no idea what ice cream was until Sven introduced her to the sweet treat. After joining Train and Sven, Eve becomes very interested in the world around her. With an inquisitive mind, she becomes highly knowledgeable and enjoys reading books. She also likes to observe others to learn more about them. Her favorite book is "Heart-Pounding Survival" (Maroon Library).


History

Eve was created by Tearju Lunatique for a research funded by Toreno Rudman, who raised Eve in isolation. Eve was taught that she was a monster and her only purpose in life was to kill. She was then rescued by Train and Sven and became a sweeper.

In the anime, her origin is slightly different. For starters, Tearju was never hired by Torneo to create Eve. Instead, Eve was created as part of a project called Eden, but Torneo arranged an accident at Tearju's lab in Vioburg and kidnapped Eve, making her his weapon.


Manga Plot

Eve Arc

Eve is created as a clone of Tearju Lunatique, the leading researcher on a team hired by Torneo Rudman. She is created with nanomachine technology and thus has the ability to transform parts of her body into any weapon or form she chooses. Eve is raised in an isolated environment and saw nothing beyond the laboratory and mansion of her owner.

Train and Sven first come across Eve after agreeing to help out an infamous thief named Rinslet Walker. She wants to get some of the valuable research from Torneo's laboratories and the sweepers stand to gain a large bounty if they capture him. They head to the small country of Sapidor, where Torneo and Eve are. Train goes off on his own to scope out Torneo's mansion and he witnesses Eve killing several of Torneo's less efficient subordinates on his orders. The underworld tycoon calls it 'playing tag' but Train intervenes before Eve can kill the last one. She is surprise to sense that Train has 'the scent of blood' on him just like she does.She leaves to find Train, but meets Sven instead. Torneo takes her back, but the two sweepers rescue her. From there on, Eve tags along with Train and Sven on their journey.

The Impostor Arc

Upon hearing about someone posing as the Black Cat I Fector town, the sweepers go there to investigate. Eve runs into the impostor, who is a man named Woodney, and knocks him out. The sweepers take him to the house they are staying at. When Woodney wakes up, he suggests they get lunch, and Train agrees. They go to town and run into the criminal, Stamper Wilson. Stamper challenges the 'Black Cat' (Woodney) to a duel, but Train, posing as the Black Cat's disciple, takes the challenge instead. He easily defeats Stamper and the sweepers leave afterwards.

While at home, Eve is attacked and severely wounded by Durham Glaster. She walks up in an underground hospital and learns that Train has dealt with Durham. However, because of what happened, Sven has decided that it was safe for her to stay with Annette. Eve is upset at this, but agrees nonetheless.

Sven and Train leave to chase their target, Kelly Barris, with Sven unaware that Eve has followed them. Kelly takes a hostage and threatens to blow up the two of them unless Train to give him his gun. Kelly sees Eve in the crowd and orders her to give him the gun. Eve complies, but give him a replica made from her hair. Kelly is distracted, allowing the sweepers to subdue him. Afterwards, Sven agrees to let Eve accompany them again.

Days later, Eve and Train make a bet: If Eve can get Train to draw out his gun in 5 minutes, she gets to make a wish. She wins and wishes for Train to buy her and Sven lunch.

As they are walking in town, they run into Tim Vertical, a young boy being chased by the police. Train scares off the cop and Tim asks him to kill someone for him.

Back home, Tim explains that a police man, Baldwin, killed his father, who was a journalist with evidence of Baldwin's dealings with a mafia. Tim escaped with the film and vowed to avenge his father. He begs Train to kill Baldwin for him, and Train, after some time, agrees.

At night, they are attacked by the police lead by Murdoch. Train defeats them and devises a plan. Eve tries to talk Tim out of it, stating that revenge will solve nothing. Tim however, refuses to listen and goes with Train the next day to get his revenge.

After Train teaches Tim a lesson, they take the boy to his grandmother's house.

Later, they notice how some men have been following them. A lost man approaches them and asks for direction. He then tells them the Apostle's location, which is an old castle.

Upon entering, Eve suddenly feels strange, so she stays behind with Sven while Train carries on. Afterwards, Train returns with Rinslet and the four leave before the castle is destroyed. They come across Chrono Number X, who was the lost man they had encountered. HE introduces himself as Lin Shaolee and inquires about Train's history with Creed, but Train refuses and threatens to shoot him. Lin bids them goodbye and leaves.

Fanghini and Kranz Maduke, crash their hotel room, intending to assassinate Kyoko. Sven and Train try to negotiate with them, but to no avail and the three sweeprs end up fighting the crazed Numbers.

The battle is interrupted with the arrival of Jenos Hazard and Rinslet Walker. Jenos tells the other two Numbers that they are ordered to return to HQ, and the two reluctantly comply. Rinslet reveals that she knows of someone who can help Train: Treaju Lunatique, Eve's creator.

The three got visit Tearju, who is shocked to see Eve. She tells Train that he can return to normal if he imagines his older self. Train goes outside to concentrate, while Sven and Eve talk with Tearju. Tearju reveals that Eve is her clone, which is why they resemble one another.

That night, they are attacked by Echidna Parass, a new Apostle named Eathes, and the Shooting Star Brigade. Sven and Eve try to fight them, but they are outnumbered. Train, now back in his old self, arrives and dfeats them with his new power, the Rail Gun, causing the two Apostles to flee.

They learn that the Apostles are hiding at an island and set out to capture Creed. Their boat is attacked and destroyed by Shiki. Eve washes up o the shore and finds Kevin McDoughall. They run into Leon Elliot, who wound Kevin. Seeing this, Eve decides to take on Leon, and makes him promise her to quit the Apostles should she win.

Relationships

Train Heartnet

Train and Eve bickering.

When they first met, Eve felt that Train was just like her due to the "smell of blood" on his gun. After joining him and Sven, Eve begins to see Train as an opponent and tries to replace him as Sven's partner, but she eventually no longer cares about that. In the anime, the two had a rough start since Train was ordered to kill Eve. Because of this, she did not trust him. Upon finding him unconscious and injured, she saved him and nursed him back to health. However, she still did not trust him, and tried to put a bell on him because he was "a bad kitty". Over time, the two got along well, though had a short-lived rivalry. Train also likes to call her "Princess".

Sven Vollfied

Sven and Eve01.jpg

Sven and Eve have a father-daughter relationship. In the anime, Sven was the first person to treat her with kindness and not view her as a "monster"; causing Eve to become attached to him. In the manga, Eve grows jealous of Train and tries to replace him as Sven's partner. After being wounded by Durham Glaster, Sven decides that she should no longer accompany him and Train on their missions, upsetting Eve. He later lets her come with them because without her, something was missing.  

Rinslet Walker

They get along fine. Rins tried being an older sister figure to Eve, but the young girl was not interested.

Tearju Lunatique

Tearju and Eve01.jpg

Tearju is Eve's creator. Before their meeting, Eve had wondered who her mother could be. When they met, Eve asked her about their relationship. Tearju revealed that Eve was a clone and that she was too young to be her mother. Surprisingly, Eve told her that she was relived. In the anime, Tearju offered Eve to come with her, but the girl declined.

Torneo Rudman

Eve's previous owner. Their relationship lacked any love or compassion as they were merely master and pet. Torneo saw Eve as a weapon and a property, not a human or a child. While Eve obeyed his every order, she did not like killing anyone and was afraid of her "father", which promoted her to leave with Sven.

Doctor

Eve hates him for trying to vivisect her. When she saw him on the ground, unconscious, she stuck out her tongue at him after remembering what he tried to do to her.

Leon Elliott

Their first meeting was on the battlefield. Before fighting, Eve made him promise her that if she won, he would leave the Apostles. Leon greatly underestimated Eve, so he was surprised that  a "softie" like her managed to defeat him. He asks if she is going to kill him, to which Eve replies that "stopping him is good enough", surprising him yet again.  

Layla

Despite having just met, Eve and Layla got along and became good friends.

Tim Vertical

Though they did not interact much, Eve showed concern for Tim, and tried persuading him to stop seeking revenge, telling him that murder won't solve anything, to which the boy angrily replies that she doesn't know anything, and Eve states that she, in fact, does. In the anime, after hearing about why Tim keeps fighting the gangsters, Eve tells a de-aged Train she wishes to stay with Tim, Layla and the others so that she can protect them.
