Nickname: Eva, Evie, Lina
Birthplace: New Jersey, USA
Sex: She's not that kinda girl! (Ohhh, you mean gender? Female)

She's a really good actress, so though it isn't in her nature to lie, she can do it quite convincingly when she has to
Power(s): White Magic
Preferred Prey: N/A
History: (must be at least two paragraphs)
Born to an 18 year old mother, Evalina wasn't planned for. Though her mother never said it, Eva has always privately felt her mother Carmela resented her for coming along when she did. Don't get me wrong, Carmella wasn't a bad person, she was just never really there for her daughter. Part of it was work - raising a child is expensive, so her mother worked two jobs just to keep food on the table.
Apart from that, there were also the men. Carmela was the kind of woman who never felt like she was complete unless she had a man in her life. Quite beautiful, and a bar maid, she never had to look far for male attention. Unfortunately, she also had a talent for picking the bad ones.
Between Carmela's job and her 'social life', she didn't have much time for her daughter, who was left mostly in the care of her grandmother, who taught Eva all about witchcraft. When she wasn't with her grandmother, Evalina spent a lot of time involved in extracurricular school activities.
When she was 14, Eva's beloved Abuela died, which left the girl mostly to fend for herself. She buried herself in schoolwork, and extracurricular pursuits, which is how she came to fall in love with acting. She auditioned for every school play, and immersed herself in perfecting each role, becoming the characters she played on stage, which allowed her, if just for a little while, to feel like she was she was someone else. She also got an after school job waiting tables at the local restaurant to fund classes in dance.
Meanwhile, her mother still kept dating bad boys, each one seeming progressively worse than the last. Then, when Eva was 16, her mother started dating Vince. To say Eva didn't like Vince would be an understatement. He was creep, possibly the worst one Carmela had ever brought home, but Eva held her tongue, after all, her mother had dated lots of guys of this type, eventually things would come to an end, and then the cycle would start over again. But that wasn't what happened this time. Horror of horrors, a scant month after she started dating him, Carmela married Vince.
Things at home became unbearable. It seemed like Vince was always there, and usually, he was drunk. He was alternately nasty and sleezy toward his teenage stepdaughter, and one day while her mother was at work, he cornered Eva and tried to molest her. She held him off with a magic spell and escaped to a friends house. When she came home, she tried to tell her mother what had happened, but Liana didn't want to hear it - Vince had already gotten to her and told her that Eva had a crush on him and had made a pass at him.
It was too much, Eva had a fight with her mother, and demanded to know who her real father was so that she could go and live with him, and finally, Carmela told her, but wished Eva luck moving in with him, as last she had heard, he was in the pen. Eva packed a bag and went to stay with a school friend while she figured out what to do.
Evalina knew who he was, he had a rep in the neighborhood, and he was indeed currently serving time. He was also the father of a girl Eva had known a little from school - Savannah Moore. Though Savvie had a bad reputation, she'd always been been nice to Eva, though she never tried to pursue a friendship outside of school. Eva made up her mind that she was going to reconnect with her sister. There was just one problem. Savvie had disappeared without a trace from Jersey. So began Evalina's search.
Thankfully, she had a lead to follow. Savannah's half brother Jack had come to see Savvie at school a few times, once when Savvie and Eva were working on a project together, so Eva tracked him down. Evalina never told Jack why she was looking for Savvie, so at first Jack didn't want to tell Eva where Savannah was, because he knew Savvie was making a good life for herself now, and he didn't want anyone from the hood wrecking it for her, but he did recall meeting Eva at the school, and after talking to her for a while, realized she wasn't one of the bad kind, and gave Eva an address for Savannah, thinking she was just going to write her, then it would be up to Savvie.
Eva however had other ideas. Desperate to get away from her horrible home life, she scraped together her meagre funds and bought a bus ticket out of New Jersey, destination Mysteria.
Naivety - She's definitely nowhere near as street smart as her sister Savannah, and could be taken for a ride if she's not careful. Hopefully her big sister will watch out for her.
Insecurity - She needs people to like her, and just about anyone being mean to her actually hurts her feelings.
Timidity - When confronted with danger, she's more likely to resort to magic than violence - she wouldn't know how to throw a punch to save her life.
Intelligence - Solid A / B student
Generosity of Spirit - She's a real sweetheart, and will give anyone a chance, well, if they don't scare her, anyway.
Determination - once she sets her heart & mind on something, nothing can stop her.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual, as far as I know
Preferred PB (played-by): Vanessa Hudgens
