Abilities & Mutation
Electrokinesis - she harnesses electricity in her body and expels it when needed/wanted. She has also developed "latent" cyberpathy as a result of her years working with her electrokinesis and studying machinery and communication.
She has recently inherited her father's shamanism at his disappearance. Her abilities could potentially include: being able to cast a shield around her body to absorb damage or contain atmosphere in hostile environments, generate astral projections, cloak herself in "invisibility", and establish real-time communication with another mystic person, regardless of distance, and healing. Astral companion - she can summon a spirit companion, a bear, who has a personality and consciousness of his own (nicknamed Minor). He was once linked to her mother. She cannot 'control' him, per se, but merely make hopeful suggestions. The capability to summon less-friendly beings is something she now possesses (shamanism) but would only resort to if ultimately necessary. Her father warned her of the mistakes he made in that arena, and she saw the toll his actions took on him (and others).
She has advanced degrees and has had proper training in mechanics, robotics, and engineering. She is trained in hand-to-hand combat, most common forms of weaponry (basic arms), as well as CPR/first aid. She earned a degree in civics in her early thirties.
Languages known: English / Spanish / French / passable ASL / conversational Swahili. Vegetarianism/kitchen dabbling, hacking/design, sewing.
She was born and raised in Austin, TX to Jon and Maria Silvercloud, ex-SHIELD agents, fresh into 'retirement'. When her mother passed away in 1992 after an anti-mutant organization sussed them out and attacked their home, Eva moved with her father to Xavier's Institute (a place he'd lived and worked in the past) and continued her schooling in a pro-mutant, safe environment.
Teen & College Years
She excelled in sciences and under the mentorship of her father (and with his influence) earned a place at MIT and eventually working in R&D at Stark Industries, then under Tony Stark himself. She had several romances and flings in her teen years but nothing was as serious as her first go-around with Ronan Murphy (aka Mars). After their first split, she began a relationship with 'Iron Man', which was very shortlived.
Her daughter was born in 2007, Maria Zaviera Logan, but she split with her father (Logan) within the first two years. Zap and Logan rekindled their romance a year or so later and had a son, Mateo James Jonathan, then spent his toddler years together. Now the couple are just friends. They've co-parented with no uproars thus far. Her relationship with Tony Stark has been as business partners, not lovers. He helped fund her upstart company, Silver Linings, which deals in artificial limbs and organs - with a philanthropic focus on servicing veterans and first responders. She's all but shuttered the doors on that project since taking up the position of Mayor in Northchester, NY.
Five Year Plan
See her children grow stronger and smarter and kinder. She intends to make as many improvements as she can to the world, and lend whatever help she can to the educational facilities at Xavier's that help young mutants succeed.
