- " I killed my sister for you people, watched my husband and every single thing I ever loved or ever cared for get ripped apart, I owe you nothing…"
- —Eva, about the apocalypse
Evana "Eva" Louise Holmes (born 6th December 1980) is the youngest daughter, but second youngest child overall, of Emmie Holmes and Cameron Sorrin, with three older siblings; Freddie, Scarlett and Sky and one younger; Zach. They all took their mother’s name as the Holmes were a renowned family amongst other witches, and so therefore evil would be less likely to attack them. Due to the fact that Emmie Holmes and John Winchester were friends, Eva and Sam and Dean Winchester have known each other since they were children.
While Eva's ftaher was a practitioner of black magic, Eva herself is a ‘white’ witch, renowned in the hunting community for finding quick ways to kill or repel things and for being good at removing curses form cursed items. She finds cases like every other hunter, however she used to use her family home in Sleepy Hollow as a base, before the death of her husband, Drew, going back to the building only on occasion.
In 2010, Eva was dragged into the events apocalypse, while at the same time having to deal with her very own apocalypse at her front door. Eva did her best to juggle trying to keep her family from falling apart and trying to help Sam and Dean as best she could. Her sister had been possessed by an entity she and her family referred to as “She” and after a failed attempt at exorcising her led to Drew’s death, she was forced to kill the demon while it still inhabited Scar, killing her along with it.
Eva continued to hunt as normal, However now she operated out of the car that Scarlett left her before being taken over, living much like the the Winchesters. However, occasionally, she chose to settle down, one of these times being when she became a teacher at Mystic Falls High after hearing reports about an “Infestation” of vampires.
- "I wouldn’t say I came from a broken home, I had my mom, and I had Freddie, but I don’t suppose having a dad who’s a dark witch willing to sacrifice thousands of human lives to kill the demons is entirely normal…"
- —Eva to Dean on her 17th birthday
Evana Louise Holmes was born, the youngest daughter, but second youngest child overall. When she was two, her father and her mother had a row. Her father was an eccentric and he was paranoid, he was growing more and more paranoid that Eva or her siblings would die because of the volume of demon attacks they suffered and he wanted to take to drastic measures to ensure their safety he wanted to start using dark magic. That night, her father moved out, leaving Eva’s mom and her siblings, with the promise to find a way to keep them safe from evil. Eva, as a baby, had no recollection of her father and for a while no one told her about her father.
All that her mother knew was that there were many reports from reliable sources that Cameron was manipulating himself an army of like-thinking witches, who intended to use powerful dark magic to wipe all monsters and demons form the face of the earth. Not many opposed this until they found out just how dark this magic was. The magic involved sacrifices, human sacrifices and a lot of them, soon most hunters had decided that any of these witches were something to be hunted.
Childhood and TrainingEdit
- "You know what I think sometimes, we’re barely better than the things we kill. We think we are, but think about it; we’re trained to kill from birth, we can kill without thinking; don’t you sometimes wonder if you’re a monster too?"
- —Eva to Dean
Meeting the WinchestersEditIt didn’t take long for Emmie to realise that the town sheriff, Ted Rosen was keeping an eye on them. Emmie thought he was a demon. So when a hunter, John Winchester, came into town on the trail of the demon that killed his wife Emmie didn’t hesitate to point him in the sheriff’s direction, only insisting that she come with him. John agreed to leave Sam and Dean, who were six and nine at the time, with Emmie’s son, Freddie. Dean and Eva, who at the time was eight, became friends quickly.
Dean and Eva grew bored of handing around at the house waiting for John and Emmie to return, so they decided to follow them to the Sherriff’s Department to ‘help’ with the demon. When they arrived at the Sherriff’s Department they watched their parents for a while, before being captured by a member of the vampire clan the Sherriff, who was actually a hunter, had been tracking. After discovering they had been wrong about Ted Rosen being a demon and returning to the house, they soon realised that Eva and Dean were missing. Ted Rosen shared his research with them and they agreed to mount an attack on the clan together, with the help of Freddie (who was very heatedly told off for not noticing them go) and Ted’s eldest son, Ric. The four of them rescued Eva and Dean, killing all but one of the vampires in the clan and the next day the Winchesters left to go back on the road again as per usual.
- "Chill, this is Tarot cards, not Doom cards, death doesn’t mean death not really. It usually suggests significant change wherever it’s placed like as it’s placed in the future space, something significant will change in your life soon, very rarely does that mean actual death"
- —Eva to John Winchester after having turned over the death card in a reading.
Most of the time, however, Eva did tarot card readings for other hunters to help them get information or sometimes just for fun. She was good, but she had always been more skilled at spells, her creativity with tools and ingredients had helped, as most witches tried, at least at first, to learn spells as if it was all an exact science, where one thing did this and another thing that. Eva had fun with it, she enjoyed making up her own spells rtaher than following the books.
- Dean: "How many are there?"
- Eva: "Verging on 500, the bands are alphabetized and their albums are sorted by date of release."
- Dean: "Awesome!"
- — Eva and Dean about her record collection
While she was not stupid, Eva was not by a long shot the top of her class. The only subject she could be described to excel in was English Literature, which she scored mostly Bs in. This was because she spent most of her time fighting away the evil in her high school so ended up having little time to spare on school work, leading to her only narrowly graduating at all.
The Battle With Her FatherEdit
- "Freddie... Freddie! Fred! Look at me... look at me, come on. You can't be dying, he barely scratched you... What did you do, Freddie, Freddie, what did you do? Oh god, Freddie, stay with me, maybe I can fix it... just tell me what you did. Freddie?"
- —Eva to Freddie realising that he brought her back
When Eva was 16, her father had finished gathering what he figured was a sufficient amount witches to carry out his plan, and so returned to Sleepy Hollow to begin preparations. As soon as he crossed the line into the town, Emmie knew what he was up to, and so called up all of the hunters she had befriended over the years as well as her sister and her family and asked them to help her prevent the sacrifice. Cameron had designed the spell so that the unknowing town below, filled with just about 5,000 people would serve as his sacrifice. It was originally planned that Eva, Dean and Drew Rosen would stay with Zack and Sam (who were far too young to fight) at the Holmes’ house but after 3 of the hunters who agreed to come mysteriously had not they decided to have the three join the fight after all. The total people on their side ended up at around 50.
Having expected such a turn out, Cameron made the allies he had gathered protect the clearing in the forest near the Holmes’ house that he had set up in order to take them out before attempting the spell. It became very clear immediately that Cameron had been able to amass a much larger amount of people for the fight, he had also managed to use a binding spell to bind some monsters and demons to fight for him. The battle raged on for a while, for such a long time that Eva’s cousin Sasha set up an ‘infirmary’ of sorts in the Holmes’ living room, where she used her flair for healing spells to help injured people. In the first part of the battle Eva fought side-by-side with Drew cutting off stragglers that were getting past the shield that her mother had against the demons’ powers. This lasted for a fair while, as the barrier held for a long while; unfortunately, however, Emmie ran out of energy and passed out. She was carried through the sudden chaos by Ted Rosen, to the House.
- Evana: "Well you are an ugly one, aren't you?"
- Demon: "Wow, a cheerleader, cute."
- Evana: "Oh, bring it on."
- — Evana egging on the demon.
As the battle continued, Evana finds herself battling a demon. Eva, equipped with a sword, fought the demon, also using a sword, for a fair while before being distracted by Dean Winchester's success against a different demon and getting stabbed through the heart with a sword. Freddie Holmes carried her to the living room where Sasha attempted to stabilize her wound, allowing her to last for longer than usual, however this ultimately failed after ten minutes and Eva died. This was surprisingly temporary as Freddie, refusing to allow his little sister to just die, quickly created a spell to drain his own life-force into Eva's body, which he knew would ultimately result in his own death. However, Freddie was more concerned about getting to where his father, Cameron was, before he died from Eva's stab wound.
Half an hour later, still weak, Eva wakes up. Not realising that she had 'died', and walking downstairs and back to the fight. She asked Ted if he knew where Freddie was, having heard that he went to confront Cameron despite many people telling him that it was practically a suicide attempt on his own, Ted suggested that she stayed back as it was likely to get ugly. Once there, Eva found her brother mid-fight with Cameron. After a fairly long fight Freddie succeeded in taking his father down, holding his sword to his neck with Cameron knelt at the floor, bloodied. Other hunters came in to restrain him but Freddie walked toward Eva, before collapsing. Eva caught him and held him up and when he was that close it occurred to her that he had been stabbed in the heart, exactly where she had been stabbed, she asked him what he had done, realising that he had brought her back. Moments later, he died.
- "I'm okay Dean, alright. I'm just frustrated that I'm friends with the girls who think that not wanting to date the freakin' quaterback is cause for genuine concern for my mental health."
- —Eva brushing it all off
After Freddie dying for her, Eva became depressed and angry about the way she was brought up, even more so than she used to be. She spent a lot of her time at school apathetic towards the way people thought everything was so important, knowing that there was a lot of things that could happen to a person that were worse than not getting the school's quarterback desperately in love with them. There were a lot of people in high school that also knew this, though, unluckily for Eva, none of them were members of the cheerleading squad. She rejected the captain of the football team twice, partially because he only wanted to date her because she was the cheerleading captain, but mostly because he was a complete asshole. Not wanting to date him just as some kind of trophy she batted him off. While a sane thing to do to most people, this naturally worried her squad-mates.
However, while merely not liking the quarterback was not really cause to be concerned about a person's mental well-being, it was true that Eva was struggling. Her brother's death had been kind of a wake-up call. She had been extremely close to Fred; as he was much older that his younger siblings, he had been somewhat of a mentor to her, practically bringing them up. Hunting and Magic and all that stuff was real to Eva now, now more than ever, it was not something she liked about herself. Furthermore, Eva found herself feeling guilt, an extreme guilt, about what had happened to Freddie. Even if, really, it wasn't her fault, she couldn't help but think that if she hadn't been so clumsy, she wouldn't have died, and Freddie would never have died to bring her back. Which was confusing, because she was also angry as hell at him too for doing that to her and leaving her to deal with the consequences.
- "Look, man, I don't do teen drama, I don't care if you're captain of the quiddich team or, whatever. just bring me another fucking beer and keep your sweaty hands to yourself. I'm not interested, not even remotely"
- —Eva being apathetic toward school
The message that Melenie was abusing magic only really hit home to Eva when she found a book, infamous amongst witches all around the world, called "Magicae est Omnis", which roughly translated is, "Magic is All". This book was also known colloquially by witches as the "Lucifarian Bible" since it houses a lot of information to practice dark magic quickly, and unfortunately, rather well; it also deified Lucifer as a paragon of good. When Eva confronted Melenie about it she shrugged it off, saying that she wasn't the only one now that knew a few tricks, and that if she had a problem with it, she was upset because she was not feeling as special. Melenie's increased erratic behaviour brought the rest of the group closer together, in their desperate effort to try to find a way to make Melenie see reason.
During this time, John Winchester found the trail of the yellow-eyed-demon, or at least thought he had, and Emmie agreed to look after the brothers for as long as it took him to find it. And so the brothers went to Sleepy Hollow. Much to Eva's displeasure she was told to put them up in Freddie's room, which was still pretty much exactly as it had been. Eva kept this to herself, however, as she was glad to have the brothers around; Dean was like a big brother to her. Sam, being quite shy, she had never known quite as well as she knew Dean, but she knew he was a good person. The brothers went to the High School with Eva, posing as her 'cousins' from Kansas. Despite being strangers to everyone, the two were accepted, mostly because Dean was a 'cool guy' sort of person and Eva was the only cheerleading captain that had succeeded in winning anything for 10 years, and thus had some swing in what was considered 'cool'.
- Melenie: "We're not..." [calming herself down] "We're not Satanists we're Lucifarians."
- Eva: "Melenie, that's the same thing, just has a prettier sounding name. Lets you convince yourself that it's not really the devil. But it is. You're invoking demons, and it's only gonna come back to bite you on your ass."
- — Eva and Melenie.
Sky tracked Melenie to a coven of 'Lucifarian' witches in Ronceverte, a small town the other side of the state, through a lot of emails. She also noted that Melenie had agreed to meet them in person to join them on the night of her disappearance. The girls as well as Scar and Dean go to Ronceverte, to find her. When there she assured them she's fine, that she only left home so that her magic wouldn't upset her family, and was returning home soon, so the girls left and returned home. However, moths passed and she never returned, prom was coming up, something they had all planned together since they were kids (despite how much Eva denied caring about it), and yet, still, she never came home.
- "I can't believe you're going to sacrifice me to Satan, how humiliating. I mean that's almost as bad as being sacrificed to a demon, he's not even a god."
- — Eva's reaction to Melenie's plan.
The night of the prom, the girls get ready together. However, as soon as they set out they were knocked out and taken away, this time to a new location. When Dean realised they were missing, he called Scarlett , who he was getting on particularly well with, at the garage and told her everything. Slightly furious she had not been in on it, she still agreed to help look for her sister without letting Emmie know about it. When it became starkly obvious that the kidnapper had left no evidence to point were Eva, Faye and Thea were, Scar was forced to admit that she would need to ask Sky to help her with a locator spell, as Scar was at peace with the fact she was useless at that kind of thing. Sky soon put together the ingredients, and got a location, Belmont, a very small town, again, on the opposite side of West Virginia, it was also in the middle of nowhere.
Unfortunately, the witches seemed competent enough to realise that it was sensible to put up barriers to try to prevent accurate tracking. Sky was forced to stay behind to try to get a location within the town while Dean and Scar went to Belmont to get a head start, with the intention of calling her on a payphone or something once they got there. Meanwhile, Eva woke up tied to a chair with her friends next to her, as well as several strangers, also tied to chairs. Standing in front of her was Melenie, along with two friends who were rocking the stereotype with black clothes and Gothic make-up. Melenie explained that she couldn't return home because she knew that she wouldn't be accepted there. She explained that she had to perform a spell with a sacrifice in order to join the coven, and that really this was a compliment because it meant that they meant the world to her.
- Eva: "You're insane! This whole thing is. You realise my mother will kill you for this if you succeed. You want to know why? Because once a witch has killed like this they are evil, no coming back kind of stuff. I'm sure there's also an element of maternal revenge in it but, the point still stands. Once you do this, if you do this. There is no coming back. Please don't make me kill you."
- Melenie: "you an an arrogant little bitch, you know that Eva... what makes you any better than me?"
- Eva: "Oh, I dunno, it might have something to do with me not torturing my friends before attempting to sacrifice them to Satan. Yeah, probably something like that, you mad bitch."
- — Eva and Melenie arguing.
The moment Dean and Scarlett arrived the coven knew, they had cast spells that detected the arrival of any of the Holmes family over the entire town, as Melenie had explained that they would come. Having expected them to come after they had done their ritual, the coven was forced to speed their preparations to avoid Scar and Dean finding them beforehand.

Meta!Verse (as Sophia Bush)Edit
- "Man, I don't know you. Now I don't know what this whole playing friendly deal does for you but if you're a hunter I don't give a shit; I work alone, and I certainly don't fucking need some pretty boy's help. If you're just some guy, I'm not interested. I don't care what you do just leave me the fuck alone."
- —Eva to Dean when he approached her.
In the Wish!Verse Eva has a harsh personality, swears a lot more than usual and is, according to her landlord, slightly deranged, as she is apparently damaged by the events in her past. As soon as Dean realities that something is amiss with his "wish", he decides to go to Eva for advice, under the impression that she would not have been affected by his family not being hunters. He called Eva's mother as another hunter and found out that she was living in an apartment in Kansas City. Upon arriving at her complex she asked a man if he knew which floor Eva's apartment was on.
The man, who turns out to be Eva's landlord says she's on floor 3, but that he should be careful, as she was deranged and had a gun collection, to witch Dean replied that Eva was a 'war' hero, which shut the man up. When Dean goes to her apartment, treating her as a friend, to ask for help with the djinn she treats him with hostility, unsure why Dean, someone who, because his father was never a hunter, she had never met, would treat her like an old friend. More than that Wish!Eva is unstable, she has alienated herself from her surviving family and works in a bar, staying in Kansas City to track Melenie, who, because Dean didn't shoot her when they were teenagers, killed Scarlett when she was confronted and is still alive today.
Wish!Eva eventually reluctantly hands Dean a collection of notes on djinn under the pretense that he just "leave her the fuck alone" if she did. Eva appearing this way is odd, as it's hard to tell why her being this broken this way would entice Dean to stay in the Wish!Verse, as it can't be nice to see a friend in such pain, or to hear that other friends had died. However, the "wish" had other things in it that weren't completely desirable such as the lack of Sam and Dean's brotherly bond as well as all of the Winchesters cases being undone. This suggests that djinn don't control what Dean's subconscious will create from the wish, it only causes him to live it.
