- "You’ve been deceiving everyone. …Me, and even the “Twins of God”. Unbelievable, that you’re still alive, Original Sinner—Eve Zvezda."
- ―Elluka Clockworker[src]
Eve Moonlit, born Eve Zvezda and known posthumously as the Original Sinner, was a witch from Nemu in the Magic Kingdom Levianta and the wife of Adam Moonlit. Eve fell in love with Adam and became the first candidate of Project 'Ma', failing to birth her twins. Eve then fled with Adam to Held's Forest and the two married. Adopting the twins Hänsel and Gretel after she murdered their mother, Eve was killed in turn by them years later, assuming the role of the Demon of Sloth soon after.
- "After this you will become the mother of gods, 'Mem Aleph'."
- ―Adam to Eve[src]
Eve, along with her twin brother Adam, was born in the Magic Kingdom Levianta in the BT 20s, the daughter of Queen Maria Moonlit. Despite Maria Moonlit's protests that the babies were a virgin conception, the Leviantan senator Miroku Loop Octopus hid the twins' birth and had the infants thrown into the river to prevent a potential scandal. Before she was thrown into the river, Eve, being an inheritor of Levia, was experimented on by Seth Twiright in order for the latter to develop the brainwashing drug Venom.
The infant Eve was eventually rescued and adopted by Raiou Zvezda, the chief of Nemu, and his wife, growing up in their village. As she came to understand that she didn't know her true parents, on one occasion when Eve was little she ran away from home and was attacked by a bear, only to be rescued by several spirits of the forest. From then on, Eve believed the forest spirits were protecting her.
Eve grew up to become a powerful witch of the Zvezda family, both able to hypnotize others with her Levia inheritor abilities and able to summon lightning of her own accord. In accordance with Nemu's laws, she had her powers sealed with a magical spoon belonging to her mother. As the forests where she lived became rife with danger from Apocalypse, Eve used her magic to protect its inhabitants while using her inheritor abilities to wipe their memories of her identity, leading to rumors spreading of the mysterious Witch of the Forest that uses a spoon to cast spells.
The Devastation of Nemu
While protecting others with her powerful magic, Eve publicly made her living selling fruits and mushrooms she'd gathered in the forest, particularly to the Mogura people excavating Second Period artifacts. When her father became bedridden due to injury, Eve took up his merchant work in his stead. Two years since then, Eve was selling her wares when she was alerted to Raisa Netsuma's army launching an attack. Leaping into action, she discovered the army was attacking three carriages, with one containing the scientists Adam Moonlit and an injured Seth Twiright. While the battle continued on, Eve took Adam and Seth to safety in her home village.
After bringing them back to her father so he could treat Seth's injuries, Eve learned that the two had come to the forest to meet with her, suspecting she was the Witch of the Forest and hoping to recruit her for Project 'Ma'. Despite her interest in the project, which offered a chance for her to become queen of Levianta, Eve denied being the Witch of the Forest out of respect to her father, her spoon hiding her true magical power when the two scientists tried to test her. Seth later left to receive further medical treatment, and Eve acted as a guide for Adam and his military escort Gammon Loop Octopus while they continued to search for the true Witch of the Forest.
One day, Eve and Adam began chatting as they headed back before they were interrupted by an attack from Raisa and her army. As Raisa attacked, Eve used her spoon to devastate her forces, revealing her true magical power in the proecess. Eve then hurried back to her home village with Adam, only to find it under attack from the other Apocalypse general Meta Salmhofer and her Red Devotees, who had brainwashed the village men, slaughtered the village women, and crucified Eve's father. After meeting Meta herself and discovering Raiou's murder, Eve and Adam were joined by reinforcements from Levianta's capital and Meta withdrew her troops. With everyone in her village either dead or brainwashed, the surviving Eve accompanied Adam back to the capital to become a candidate for Project 'Ma'.
After following Adam back to the Royal Institute, Eve underwent a second test to gauge her magical ability and viability as a Project 'Ma' candidate. During this time, she learned more about the terrorist organization Apocalypse and how little the senate currently was doing to combat it, resolving to fix the corruption in the government after she became queen. Once it was determined Eve's magical power was more than high enough, she was next prepared for a ritual to get the current queen to accept her as her successor.
In the meantime, she also accepted Adam's help in buying several clothes and other wares, like a red wine glass, to help her get settled into the capital over the next several days. Eve also began receiving lessons from Adam on Leviantan history and politics. Before a month had passed Eve and Adam began officially dating, though the two kept their relationship a secret to avoid complications with the Project. When Adam promised the two would get married later, Eve suggested they wed in Held's Forest once it was safe there again.
A week later, Eve was called to the round hall in Alicegrad and met with senator Miroku to start the ritual. Upon arriving, she was shocked to discover that there was a second candidate, Zellana Chirclatia of the Lighwatch temple, about to undergo the ritual as well. After briefly becoming acquainted with Zellana, Eve entered the Levia-Behemo temple first to meet with the queen and undergo the ritual.
Moving through the temple's Hall of Glass, Eve spotted the figure of the queen but passed out shortly before reaching her. She then experienced three dreams in succession: The first was a vision of her and Adam as irregulars at the end of the world. The second was a vision of herself inside the Clockworker's Doll facing off against Elluka Clockworker, while the latter performed a body swap on her. The third was a vision of herself and Adam living in a cabin before two children arrive, with Eve becoming convinced that the twins were her future children with Adam.
Eve awoke to find that she'd succeeded in the trial and was selected to be the next queen of Levianta. She then found out that Zellana had entered after her and was killed by the ritual, a risk that Adam had neglected to inform Eve of. She was then brought back to the institute to be impregnated with the God seed. Although angered that Adam had omitted the danger of the ritual, Eve suppressed her concerns, fearing it would mean an end to their relationship.
After being successfully implanted with the God Seed and conceiving twins, Eve awaited giving birth to the incarnations of Levia-Behemo. Becoming restless from the pregnancy, she accompanied Adam out to the western coast by Held's Forest; while there, she announced to Adam that she was naming the twins Cain and Abel. Eight months since becoming impregnated, Eve was moved to Alicegrad as a security measure and was closely attended while her due date approached.
Eventually, Eve went into labor and was attended by Seth Twiright, as her primary doctor had drowned in a river not long before. Once she'd given birth, however, the babies were discovered to be stillborn. Later, it was determined that Eve had become infertile as well. Horrified and grieved, Eve became delusional and was insistent that her children were still alive. Later, she fled the Magic Kingdom Levianta with Adam and moved with him into Held's Forest.
After Eve fled to Elphegort with Adam, the two had a wedding in Held's Forest and made a small home in the forest, furnishing it with some of their belongings from Levianta. The two took up work as woodcutters, with Adam traveling to other villages in the forest to sell their goods. Still suffering mentally, at first Eve remained cooped up in the house, appearing senseless as well as emotionless. As time went on, however, her condition gradually appeared to improve as she began to venture out and and gather fruits and mushrooms like she used to in Nemu, though her delusional state would still resurface on occasion.
In EC 001, Eve came across a boy and a girl on the ground one night and perceived them as red fruits, picking them up to take home. While heading back, Eve found herself chased by the looming shadow of their mother; perceiving her to be a bear, Eve came to believe it was the bear that had attacked her in her childhood and ran through the woods in a bid to escape. Upon reaching her home, Eve found Meta closing in on her; as the latter grabbed her coat, Eve killed the "bear" with her magic spoon.
Eve then entered her home with the "fruits" still in hand and was greeted by Adam, only for him to notice the children in her arms. As Adam ascertained for himself what she had done, Eve acknowledged that the "fruits" in her arms were really infants, but then came to believe in her delusion that they were the twin children she'd borne with Adam. At peace, Eve contentedly rocked her children that night and appeared to give the "bear" no further thought.
With the mother dead and children orphaned, Adam and Eve kept the twins and raised them as their own. Over the years, Gretel caused plenty of mischief for them, prompting Eve to often scold her. Following the Levianta Catastrophe of EC 013, the effects of the disaster spread to Elphegort, causing a famine. A few months later in EC 014, the two reluctantly agreed to abandon their foster children in the forest to starve to death so that they could survive the famine. With a gloomy expression, Eve and her husband led their foster children deep into the forest before abandoning them and returning home.
Devastated, Eve mourned their loss while Adam comforted her. Soon after, they heard a knock on the door and answered, horrified to see the manic expressions of their abandoned children at the entrance. While their children laughed, Eve was shoved into the house's oven by Gretel and burned alive.
Demon of Sloth
- "The item that ruled ‘Sloth’ among the ‘Vessels of Deadly Sin’…In reality, it never existed in the first place. What, then, happened to the Demon of Sloth? The answer is simple. The ‘demon’ dwelled not in a vessel, but people."
- ―Eve regarding her situation[src]
After her death, Eve's soul became one of the seven demons scattered across the world by Hänsel and Gretel. Accepting her alias as the "Demon of Sloth", Eve used the Swap Technique to take a human as her vessel. When her latest vessel died around EC 118, Eve migrated to the body of her unborn granddaughter, transforming her to have her appearance. The girl, Mikulia Greeonio, became Eve's new host thereafter. After seeing I.R. give Mikulia the Clockworker's Doll she had fashioned, Eve migrated to the doll as her new vessel.
As Mikulia played with her vessel, Eve spoke to her under the delusion that she was one of the demons. Explaining her situation, Eve suggested to Mikulia that she leave the harem, clarifying that she wasn't under the influence of Sateriasis Venomania's Lust spell. Eve was later taken by I.R. when she left the Venomania Mansion in EC 136.
Afterward, Eve conversed with her about both their pasts; the witch learned about Irina's future sister-in-law Elluka Clockworker having been revived after Irina had killed her and about how Irina's brother Kiril had gone about revitalizing Elluka via the ark Sin, hence Levianta's destruction. As the years progressed, Irina continuously experimented on Eve to try instilling a new power the red cat mage could use to destroy everything, including the gods.
Flower of the Plateau
Main Article: Mikulia Calgaround
- "Mikulia, who I’d believed long dead, going to Calgaround, becoming the wife of a feudal lord, causing such an incident–I wondered if it was a different person with the same name. But the one depicted in the portrait was truly Mikulia, there was no mistaking that."
- ―Elluka Clockworker[src]
Years after the Venomania Event, the Clockworker's Doll was activated, putting everyone, including Eve herself, under a powerful hypnosis. The Doll then assumed Mikulia's identity, crafting a new persona and becoming a florist, settling in Calgaround in EC 141. Garnering fame as the "Flower of the Plateau", Mikulia believed herself to be the former prostitute while Eve slumbered in her subconscious. After murdering two connections to "her" past, Mikulia killed her husband using the poison Gift in EC 151. After Countess Mikulia's death, Eve's memories returned and she awakened.
Phantom Thief Platonic
Main Article: Platonic
- "You once spent time as a human in another era as well. And I acted for a little while alongside you then."
"Hahaha, you’ve figured that out as well, hm? Makes me nostalgic …You worked me very hard back then didn’t you, Elluka?"
- ―Elluka and Eve[src]
During the EC 300's, the Clockworker's Doll was activated once more and she assumed herself to be a daughter of the Calgaround Family. Becoming known as the Phantom Thief Platonic, the infamous thief was hired by the mage AB-CIR to steal a red wine glass from Duke Banica Conchita in EC 325. Initially failing, she was forcibly employed by Elluka Clockworker after being tasked to steal the Twin Blades of Levianta from her.
Later that year, Platonic managed to steal the glass from the sorceress while returning from their investigation of Banica's disappearance. After returning home to her family and later delivering the vessel to AB-CIR, Platonic eventually died, reawakening Eve from her slumber again. AB-CIR eventually reacquired the Doll sometime afterward.
Story of Evil
- "It looks like Michaela, but my mother said it was modeled after someone else. If I recall correctly she said it was the 'original sinner' or something..."
- ―King Kyle regarding the Clockworker's Doll[src]
In EC 482, the Doll was one of the vessels given to Prim Marlon by her court mage, Abyss I.R. During the Hedgehog Upheaval in EC 505, Prim brought the vessel of Sloth with her while she lay in the uppermost room of the clocktower. After being confronted by her son, Kyle, Prim invoked Eve's power in order to control the Demon of Lust in one of the vessel of Pride's fragments.
Once Prim was killed by her daughter, Ney, Eve revoked the power she lent. The doll was later collected by Kyle and brought with him to Lioness Castle. Shortly after, Abyss I.R. stole the Doll along with the other vessels of sin before fleeing to Lucifenia. Around the EC 560s, Irina successfully infused Eve with the ability to conjure the Court at her command.
Third Sleep Princess
Main Article: Margarita Blankenheim
- "We... all of us... have been deceived!"
- ―Dr. Marx Felix[src]
In EC 593, Julia Abelard replaced the corpse of Marx Felix's stillborn daughter with the Doll and activated it, causing Eve to believe she was Margarita Felix. Fixated on marrying her beloved Kaspar Blankenheim, Margarita lapsed into depression during her loveless marriage to the philandering marquis. Comforted by Mayrana Blossom, the girl joined the woman's criminal organization, Père Noël, as "Third Sleep Princess" and helped with their illegal operations.
After Mayrana gave her the formula for Gift, Margarita went on a psychopathic rampage, killing her husband and decimating her hometown of Toragay with her experimental creations. Suffering from the resurging memories of Eve's past incarnations, Margarita refined a Seventh Gift at the Mayrana's mansion in Calgaround. She then ingested her own poison, unlocking Eve's fragmented memories and deciding to head to the forest before finally dying.
Confrontation in the Forest
- "…Will you stop trying to keep up this pointless deception already? I already know who you really are!"
- ―Elluka to Eve[src]
Shortly after Eve's consciousness reawakened, the doll left the mansion. Weeks later, in November of EC 609, she traveled to the Millennium Tree Forest, walking into the clearing where the New Millennium Tree was located. As Gumillia and Michaela stared at her in shock, the doll caught Elluka's attention and then went to wait for her in her old home, the abandoned house. Sitting down in a chair, Eve greeted Elluka as she entered.
She related how her memory returned after she drank the Seventh Gift, with Elluka following up with a summation of what had occurred and how she had replaced the real Margarita Felix when the baby died. Elluka speculated that being able to fool everyone into the switch with a sort of hypnosis was her ability as the Demon of Sloth. The doll mused on how even she had been taken in by it, believing herself to be the human Margarita up until her death.
Elluka then pointed out that the same had happened in another time, and Eve readily admitted to having been Platonic as well. Elluka explained that she'd assumed Platonic was a descendant of Mikulia, thus explaining the appearance, but because Mikulia's child had been killed and disposed of according to "The Flower of the Plateau", that was impossible. When the doll asked why Mikulia couldn't have had descendants with the lord Calgaround, Elluka asserted that she had witnessed Mikulia's death in Asmodean, before she ever supposedly reached Calgaround. The doll agreed then that she had been the Mikulia in the "Flower of the Plateau" as well. She told Elluka that her body was originally made by I.R. to simulate Mikulia's appearance, something that Elluka hadn't known previously.
Eve elaborated for Elluka on how the vessel for "Sloth" hadn't existed originally, and so the demon instead dwelt inside human hosts, altering each generation's appearances to look like hers until I.R. created the new vessel. Hearing Elluka muse it was the Swap Technique, she attempted to continue the ruse that she was a demon, but Elluka had already figured out her true identity as Eve; incensed, she crossed over and grabbed the Doll around the neck. Eve finally removed the hypnosis she had over the mage and allowed her to see her true form as the Gine doll.
The two exchanged barbs over their respective purposes in continuing to exist in this way, each of them lacking in a true drive to motivate them. Eve commended Elluka on figuring everything out, telling her she'd poison her as a reward. Elluka responded by asserting her determination to destroy Eve, partially out of a newfound desire to rid the world of the likes of mages, gods, and demons so that humanity could develop on its own. When Eve pointed out that she couldn't be killed by ordinary means, Elluka began the spell for the Swap Technique, intending to take Eve's soul into her own to destroy it. Despite Eve vainly attempting to talk her out of it, after fifteen minutes, Elluka's pink light consumed the entire cottage and Eve's soul was torn from her doll vessel. Drawn into her spirit, the mage's consciousness was suppressed and slumbered in Elluka's mind while the mage utilized her magical power for herself.
Duel of Merrigod Plateau
- "Awaken— Master of the Court."
- ―Irina summoning the Court[src]
During the Duel of Merrigod Plateau on January 30, EC 611, Eve's consciousness was awakened after Elluka was caught in the blast of Black Box Type S; as a result, Eve was transported to Levia's inner psychological world. Once she reached the top of the place's massive staircase, she blankly stared at Gumillia, Behemo, and Irina already waiting on other sides of the temple square. She passively watched Levia join them and discuss "Elluka Clockworker's" true identity with Irina.
After they finished their conversation, Irina approached Eve and wrapped an arm around her while she described the completion of her experiments fifty years ago. She then whispered in her ear for the "Master of the Court" to awaken and Eve immediately transformed Levia's mental world into the Court. As Irina boasted about what she accomplished with the Clockworker's Doll and prepared to continue her duel with the twin gods in the reset stage, the Demon of Gluttony intervened and clashed with the gods instead, resulting in Irina, Levia, and Eve's souls fusing together as a new being in Elluka Clockworker's body: Ma. Following the birth of the irregular twin "Eve" and the world's subsequent destruction in EC 999, Eve's soul separated from Ma and merged with the twin's, giving her a will.
In the wake of her death, the other six vessels of sin created from Eve's Original Sin unleashed havoc on numerous occasions, corrupting their holders and causing catastrophes for nearly a millennium in the Evillious region. Eve herself became known as the "Original Sinner", and was regarded with disdain for her actions during her lifetime. The spirit Michaela, when asked by Elluka to imagine the image of an Elphe woman, pictured Eve the night she stole the twins from Meta. She then incarnated as a human with the witch's visage.
Centuries later, in EC 982, Eve and her husband's skeletal corpses were discovered while their long abandoned home was being demolished for the construction of Evil's Theater. Afterwards, a graveyard was constructed around the theater grounds. The playwright Ma wrote several screenplays concerning Eve's actions at Evil's Theater and they were made into films. While watching the film with another visitor, Ma claimed that Eve's kidnapping-murder in the forest had begun it all.
Eve's incarnations were recorded in history to varying degrees, many earning folklore or rumor being passed on through the centuries. Due to their nature, few records existed regarding the actual birth or death date of many of her different personas. While never widely accepted by the public, the Clockworker's Doll was recorded by Will Jaakko as one of the vessels of sin in the possession of the mysterious mage "I.R." and "AB-CIR", though the true nature of its "demon" was never discovered.
Personality and Traits
- "...What is your purpose? For what reason have you continued to survive this long? Even as far as becoming your current form—"
"Purpose? –I don't have one."
- ―Elluka and Eve[src]
Eve was a capable and good-natured woman broken by her circumstances. Being the Witch of the Forest, Eve used her powers in defense of others as a heroic figure, not even hesitating to come to others' aid in times of danger. Later on, this developed into a desire to eradicate the evils of the world and fix the rampant corruption present in her home country. Despite her devastatingly powerful magical abilities, she was humble and worked in a more modest occupation while keeping her true nature secret; this humble background in a remote village led to her naivety when taken out of her home environment. Due to her being attacked by a bear in childhood, Eve also had a fear of them which she carried into her adult life, coupled with a respect of the forest spirits who saved her. She similarly came to deeply respect Held for his believed role in the agriculture of Elphegort despite being taught he was an "evil" god.
Following the murder of her community and her own father, Eve was left devastated and thrust out of everything she'd found familiar. Because of this, she quickly became enamored of and emotionally dependent on Adam, even to the point of ignoring her better judgement about his intentions if it meant maintaining their relationship. With her similarly devastating miscarriage and failure to complete the project, Eve's feelings for Adam and reliance on him only worsened. Alongside this, to protect herself she developed a delusional state from which she never fully recovered, recurrently in denial that her children had died at all, and insisting they were missing. This difficulty facing reality was the source of her kidnapping Hänsel and Gretel, perceiving them first as fruits and then as her own children.
After becoming a "demon" of Sloth, Eve's mental stability degraded further. With no real purpose for life, and seeming to not even know her own identity initially, she fittingly lazed about throughout the centuries, save for the few times the Doll was used and she underwent self-hypnosis. While she regained her own sense of self, Eve considered herself both intrinsically a part of and different from her various incarnations and seemed to look at their lives as small distractions for her. Eve in particular developed a complex regarding Adam Moonlit and the life he'd promised her during Project Ma, becoming obsessed with him and with anyone who resembled him.
Eve's behavior also took on a malicious bent. Once dedicated to protecting the innocent, with her successive tragedies Eve began to value her own happiness even if it meant hurting others. She at first explained away these actions with her delusions and otherwise clearly expressed guilt, such as when abandoning Hänsel and Gretel survive the famine. By contrast while she "slept" during her incarnations, Eve's subconscious self became inclined to spread chaos and she seemed take pleasure in the lives taken by her and her incarnations, even mocking and toying with Elluka when the latter realized the truth about her existence. Subconsciously, however, Eve did seem to desire deep down a chance to start over and fix her mistakes, as shown through others, like Michelle, who were influenced by her personality.
Skills and Abilities
- "Taste the menace of—The Original Sinner Eve Moonlit!"
- ―Elluka utilizing Eve's powers[src]
Eve was exceptionally skilled in magic and was arguably the best witch in the Magic Kingdom Levianta at the time, enough for her abilities to be considered on par with those of the Demons of Sin. Among her abilities were possessing the powerful Swap Technique, wielding lightning magic, and having a powerful hypnosis resulting from her being an inheritor of Levia. However, she kept the latter two sealed using the Marlon Spoon during her time in Nemu. Due to Eve acting as a "demon" through the Swap Technique, she suffered from similar weaknesses as the Demons of Sin, able to be completely sealed in her vessel or be forced to find a new one if it was destroyed.
After she became the "Demon of Sloth", Eve's hypnosis could be projected as a field, affecting people's perceptions and memories; this included influencing people to perceive the Doll as an ordinary human. This hypnosis was strong enough to affect skilled mages and even Eve herself, forcing her consciousness to "sleep" in her incarnation's subconscious, influencing them while they lived as a human. Since the hypnosis was unable to be "turned off", Eve's incarnations were tireless and sleepless. Despite all this, Eve's consciousness would reawaken upon the incarnation's death.
Compounding this hypnosis, Eve had the cumulative memories of her different incarnations. This resulted in her ability to magically create an airborne version of Gift and manipulate it to her will. Due to Irina Clockworker's experimentation, Eve could also conjure the Court at Irina's command, resetting the area so that all living things within it were mortal, even gods. Eve's power and relation to the demons also left her immune to their influence; this ability extended to her incarnations. Aside from this, Eve could allegedly forge demon contracts with humans; one of the powers she supposedly granted was the ability to transplant the Demons of Sin into vessels other than their own.
Adam Moonlit: Eve's husband and long-lost twin brother. Unaware of their sibling relationship, Eve became attracted to Adam for his looks and intelligence; following the deaths of her family and friends, this attraction developed into a dependency on their relationship, to a point where she ignored her own misgivings about how trustworthy Adam was. Following the deaths of her children, Eve became completely dependent on Adam and was therefore content with what she perceived as their happy wedded life. She later became obsessed with him or those with his appearance as the Demon of Sloth, seeking to recreate that life with him.
Hänsel: Eve's foster son. Eve initially perceived Hänsel as a fruit and took him in hunger, believing he was crucial to her happiness. After realizing Hänsel was a baby boy, she came to instead perceive him as her own child and raised him as her son. While later becoming desperate enough to abandon the boy during the famine in Elphegort, Eve felt great regret for doing so and was shocked when he returned.
Gretel: Eve's foster daughter. After realizing she wasn't a fruit, Eve quickly perceived Gretel as her own child and so raised her as her daughter. Despite this, Eve was constantly scolding Gretel for her antics and troublesome behavior. While later becoming desperate enough to abandon the girl during the famine in Elphegort, Eve felt great regret for doing so and was shocked when Gretel returned.
Meta Salmhofer: A woman Eve murdered. Eve was crushed by the losses she incurred from Meta's attack on Nemu, and saw her and Apocalypse as a whole as an evil that should be purged when she became queen. After stealing Meta's children Eve perceived the woman as a bear, "recognizing" her as the bear that had attacked her in her childhood. Although she obtained her revenge in killing Meta, Eve appeared to not truly recognize her, nor what she had done to her, afterwards.
Raiou Zvezda: Eve's adoptive father. Never knowing her true origins, Eve loved Raiou as though he were her own father and was left devastated by his murder at Meta's hands. Although occasionally disagreeing with her father and his insistence on keeping her out of higher political affairs like 'Project Ma', Eve had nonetheless intended to respect his wishes.
Cain: Eve's stillborn child. Thanks to her visions, Eve had greatly anticipated Cain's birth as part of the family she would have with Adam, excited to meet her children. As such, she was utterly devastated by Cain's stillbirth and entered a deep denial over it, projecting her lost children on Hänsel and Gretel who followed after.
Abel: Eve's stillborn child. Thanks to her visions, Eve had greatly anticipated Abel's birth as part of the family she would have with Adam, excited to meet her children. As such, she was utterly devastated by Abel's stillbirth and entered a deep denial over it, projecting her lost children on Hänsel and Gretel who followed after
Mikulia Calgaround: One of Eve's incarnations. During her time as Mikulia, Eve's soul remained dormant, unaware of Mikulia's actions. Sometime later she passed away, regaining memories of her "past self". Eve cared little for her past life, seeing it only for the malice she spread through it.
Platonic: Another one of Eve's incarnations. Like Mikulia before her, Eve's soul slumbered during Platonic's life, ignorant of her actions until Platonic died; gaining her past memories. Eve teased Elluka about working with her as Platonic, saying she cared little for her time as the thief.
Margarita Blankenheim: Eve's most notorious incarnation. After drinking her own Gift, she passed away, allowing Eve's soul to become conscious, and gained her past memories. Although making use of her image later, Eve commented shortly after about caring little for that persona.
Eve: A soul Eve Moonlit fused with. Their fusion allowed her to gain a will; she also retained at least some Eve's abilities, such as forging demonic contracts.
Conceptualization and Origin
- Eve Moonlit is inspired by Eve from Judeo-Christian mythology; like her biblical counterpart, she commits a grave act against God and is burdened with the Original Sin.
- Eve's maiden surname, Zvezda, is the Slavic word for "star".
- In the Escape of Salmhofer the Witch song PV, the L in Eve's surname is capitalized in a similar fashion to the R in Seth Twiright's surname.
- Eve's hometown, Nemu, is the Japanese root word for "sleep"; fittingly, Eve later becomes known as the Demon of Sloth.
- It was purported that the members of the Zvezda family inherited the blood of the earth god, Held; however, Eve herself is adopted and an inheritor of Levia.
- While mothy originally wrote Eve's given name as イヴ (Ivu), he later began writing it as イブ (Ibu); when asked, he stated there wasn't a very deep meaning behind the change, pointing out both spellings had the same connotation for the English "Eve".
- In Epic of Evil: The Daughter of Evil Fanbook, Eve was voted as the twenty-sixth most popular character in The Daughter of Evil Series by Japanese fans, along with Abyss I.R., Shaw Freezis, Mikina Freezis, Sateriasis Venomania, and Trauben Fruit.
