Usually quiet and reserved, she is very observant and quick-witted, and relies on her intelligence rather than physical prowess in a confrontation. She is an excellent liar, able to blend in effortlessly in a variety of social scenarios. Character background:
Born Evan Rose, the only child to an average suburban family in New Jersey, Evan's early childhood was a happy one. Everything would change one fateful night when Evan was five however, when his mother was murdered in an apparent mugging gone wrong. Growing up without a feminine figure in his life, the child gradually became interested in the fairer sex to the point of obsession. Initially dismissing his child's behavior as just a phase, Evan's father did his best to raise him on his own, even though running the garage he owned took up most of his time. It would soon become apparent however, that what Evan had been going through was anything but a phase, and the man eventually relented and allowed his child to get the treatments and surgeries to became who he was both inside and out at the age of sixteen. Evan had become Evangeline.
A bright and intelligent child, Evangeline easily breezed through high school, graduating close to the top of the class. Everyone expected her to go on to study to become a doctor, or a lawyer like her mother. However, never one to conform to other's expectations, Evangeline decided instead to move across the Hudson and join the NYPD, determined to make a difference and not allow another child to suffer growing up without a parent, like she did. Discriminated against because of her unique past, Evangeline had to work doubly hard compared to her peers to prove herself, scoring top marks in the police academy while becoming one of the best shots the NYPD has ever seen, before racking up an impressive string of arrests to make the rank of detective at the age of twenty-four. However, she would eventually find that having a successful career in the department was not just about being a good cop, but about being able to play the game of office politics as well. Still plagued by discrimination and regarded as something of a joke by most around her, Evangeline's career stalled, and she began to take increasingly bigger risks in an effort to crack cases, her methods occasionally sliding into the realm of recklessness. Not that it made any difference. Evangeline found herself at a dead-end, unable to move forward. It was no surprise then, that she jumped at the chance when 'the division' came calling, seeing an opportunity to make a difference in the world yet.
