Eve is a recurring character in the TV series Lucifer.
She appears as the anti-villainous secondary antagonist of Season 4, a supporting protagonist in Season 5, and a major protagonist in Season 6.
She is one of the first two humans to exist alongside her ex-husband Adam as well as the mother of Cain and Abel. She is obsessed with her love for Lucifer Morningstar and returned from Heaven to seek a relationship with him after growing bored of her husband.
She is portrayed by Inbar Lavi.
Eve is an energetic party girl who is bored of her marriage to Adam and is looking to return to a time where she found them unpredictable and exciting. She also deeply misses Lucifer. However, her fondness for Lucifer is almost entirely based on who he was when they first met in the garden, which she fails to realize Lucifer had changed after all the years he spent in Hell. Her obsession is so strong that she did not realize his initial attempts to break up, and when they finally split she tried everything she can to get back together, including summoning demons to convince him to return to Hell so they can live as King and Queen. Because of this obsession, she fails to notice Maze's attempts at romance. She is bubbly.
While out of touch with the humans that came after her, Eve does try her best to fit in. Eve seems to have an almost child-like mentality. This childishness might be due to the fact that as one of the first humans on the planet, Eve did not have much experience in interacting with the negative feelings/traits of other human beings. Being in Heaven didn't help her mature, as it's peaceful there.
Despite all her recklessness, Eve only wants what is best for Lucifer. She tried her best to be good to Lucifer, while she understandably could not believe the break-up request by Lucifer, she did all she could, such as putting up with Lucifer with his dirtiness, made friends with the guys Lucifer found to ruin their date. She is also very charming and friendly, even with Chloe. Both Ella and Trixie initially wanted to hate Eve, but quickly warmed up after hanging out with her. She quickly bonded with Linda over their shared understanding of Lucifer's tendencies and earned Chloe's trust by protecting Trixie from assassins sent to kill Lucifer and helping out on a case.
In the Season 4 finale, after Eve realizes that she had made a huge mistake; she blamed herself for Charlie getting kidnapped. The event also made her think about her relationship with Lucifer and Maze, hence she decided to leave to find out who she really is, alone.
In Season 5A, the thirteenth episode "A Little Harmless Stalking", Mazikeen unexpectedly runs into Eve while investigating a muder, briefly fighting each other. After their brief fight, Mazikeen gets the upper hand and removes Eve's mask which revealed her unexpected return. Mazikeen and Eve go on a bounty hunting mission to catch the killer, however, this resulted in Eve being shot and Mazikeen killing the man who shot her. Later in the episode, Mazikeen visits Eve and confesses her love, as a result, Eve shared the same feelings, however, once Mazikeen offered her Lilth's ring to become immortal, Eve refused, stating that she will be corrupted, explaining to her what occurred to her son Cain/Marcus Pierce. Mazikeen not coming to terms with Eve's valid statement, she flees the room which left Eve disappointed.
In the Season 5 finale, Eve and Mazikeen become girlfriends and they both gather demons to aide Lucifer in his fight against Michael to become the new sovereign of heaven. Eve then enters the Colliseum with a shotgun with bullets made out of demon blades. Eve stood back as back-up to force Michael to battle Lucifer one-on-one to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. She watched the battle between Lucifer and Michael, but became worried when it looked as if Lucifer was about to lose to Michael, who had the flaming sword. The battle took a turn when Michael killed Chloe Decker, much to Eve's horror. After Lucifer ventured to heaven to save her, Eve comforted Mazikeen over Chloe's death, but Mazikeen infuriated, decided to lead the brawl against the angels loyal to Michael to which Eve followed. During the battle, Eve managed to shoot Gabriel in the gut with the demon bullets, but it became clear that they were outnumbered. The brawl was halted by the unexpected resurrection of Lucifer. Eve and the others had gone to witness at the entrance of the Colliseum to see the conclusion of the battle between Lucifer and Michael. Much to her surprise, instead of eradicating Michael with the flaming sword for his evil deeds, Lucifer instead cuts off his wings and gave him a second chance. Believing that Lucifer succeeded in becoming God, she followed alongside Amenadiel in bowing before Lucifer, smiling at how far Lucifer had come.
In Season 6, in the seventh episode "My Best Fiend's Wedding", Eve and Mazikeen planned to get married, but their wedding plans were interrupted by Adam who has finally realized that his wife Eve has been gone for a year and a half. Adam attempts to get Eve back, even kidnapping Linda who is their officiant, but he comes to accept that their marriage is over and gives Eve his blessing. Although grateful, Eve rejects his offer since she was created for him and because of that, she wanted to make a decision on her own, but she allows him to stay at the wedding and the reception.
In the Season 6 finale, Mazikeen and Eve bounty hunt together as a married couple before getting a call that Aurora Morningstar has been born. Mazikeen and Eve excitedly attend at Chloe's home awaiting for Chloe and Aurora's arrival presenting Aurora a gift which was a knife.
Eve was created by God to be Adam’s new mate in order to separate him from his first wife, the demon Lilith. At some point she met and entered into a sexual relationship with Lucifer Morningstar while still married to Adam. She gave birth to two sons by Adam named Cain and Abel, where the former ended up killing the latter, horrifying her in the process. When Adam and Eve eventually died on Earth, they became the first human residents of the Silver City.
Eve spent an eternity married to Adam in Heaven, trying her best to be the woman he wanted her to be but never succeeding, as he still missed Lilith. Having grown bored of it and still desiring Lucifer, Eve somehow discovered a way to escape Heaven and was reborn on Earth in her original youthful appearance due to being literally created by God's hand. Eventually she caught a plane with jeweller Pablo Silva on the way to Los Angeles.
Reunion with Lucifer
She then arrives at Lux and awaits for him to show up. A depressed Lucifer finds her in the club and is disappointed how he said he would get her a hotel so she can settle in. When the drive arrives, he demands that she returns a necklace before shooting him and taking off. In the penthouse, she explains about a necklace she saw on the flight with Pablo, and how it was for a criminal leader named Bashir Al-Fassad. They pay him a visit and cut a new deal with him, since he believed that Chloe was speaking on his behalf: they return the necklace if he will leave Eve alone. They confront a con artist how was the flight with them and she reveals she gave the necklace to an anonymous broker for an auction. Eventually, they retrieve the necklace while Chloe catches the one who killed Pablo for it. Lucifer then learns she kept the necklace and expressed her desires to be with him. After he reveals his true face, she kisses him.
Over the next week, she stays with him, constantly having sex with him and affecting his behavior. During a particular day, she tries to persuade him to join her in the shower, his mind is changed when Chloe arrives to bring him on a case, disappointing her. Afterwards, Amenadiel arrives and meets her, much to his surprise. He then explains how Lucifer killed her son Cain/Pierce. She then explains how she saw her son Abel and Charlotte Richards in Heaven, openly expresses how he probably got what was coming to him. After hearing how she may not be let back into Heaven, she brushes it off. She then meets Ella Lopez at Lux and charms her into taking the drug Molly. After the two of them, Lucifer and Chloe survive a hostage crisis, she jealously sees Chloe protecting him from an attempted bomb detonation. The next morning, she learns about how Chloe makes him vulnerable, shocking her.
Corrupting the Devil
Months later, Eve becomes an even further bad influence on Lucifer, causing him to lose focus on his personal relationships, his work life and cancel his therapy sessions. They then begin having multi-month long sex parties. Eventually, he gets back to work, disappointing her. After he doesn't return the day, she eats special brownies and then spends the day with the demon Mazikeen "Maze" in town. After Lucifer finally returns, she expresses how much she once tried to change for Adam but he never loved her back. She then gives him the belief that he's pretending to be someone he's not. He then leaves after having a breakthrough in the case.
After returning from work, where he accidentally let human trafficker Julian McCaffrey escape and got an L.A.P.D. officer killed, Eve points out that the officer’s death is the murderer’s fault, not Lucifer’s, and suggests that Julian needs to be punished. Lucifer’s not sure he has it in him anymore, but Eve assures him he does. They then track down Julian and she watches Lucifer cripple him.
Back at the penthouse, Eve explains that now she's got a taste for punishment and now wants to go after the worst of the worst with her Lucifer. He then brings her to the next case, which involved Julian's father Jacob Tierning. During the case, she continually tempts Lucifer into ruthlessly punishing criminals, regardless if they presumably-innocent or not. However, Chloe is able to tempt him out of it. At the penthouse, Eve meets Chloe's daughter Trixie. However, two hitmen hired by Tierning to kill Lucifer for crippling Julian (after being tipped off by a still-bitter Dan), but she protects Trixie while he handles the perpetrators just as Chloe and a guilty Dan arrive. Lucifer then tells Eve to stay behind so he could deal with Tierning personally, in which he does except by turning him into the police.
Rivalry for Lucifer
A few days later, after Lucifer hears of a prophecy regarding himself and Eve bring evil to Earth, he tries to break up with her after explaining this, only for her to refuse, believing it to be nonsense. Lucifer then brings her to his sessions with Linda, which backfires. In order to still try and change Eve's mind, he plays the "cliché bad husband" by kissing other women, behave like a slob when watching television, play video games all night and host games with friends without her, only for her to adapt to all of those immediately. Later, after she says she can change who she is for him, Lucifer breaks up with her directly, expressing how he doesn't like who he is when he's with her. She then leaves heartbroken.
After moving out, Eve spends a large amount of time crying at Maze's home. After Maze suggests helping her get him back, Eve starts spending time with Maze more to try and make him jealous, but to no avail. Even after kissing her, it doesn't work, unaware that Maze has developed feelings for her, and then even started acting like Chloe due to his admiration for her. She then proposes throwing a party at Lux to lure out the killer in their case. She then attends the party and talks to Lucifer, believing that he is still into her, only for him to turn her down completely. Heartbroken, she then hears Maze singing for her, believing that it was a way to help her win Lucifer back.
The two of them then break the fanatical Father Kinley out of custody during a transfer and bring him to Maze's home, wanting him to admit that the prophecy was nonsense. When nothing works, Eve begins to contemplate ideas to get Lucifer back, enraging Maze to the point of lashing out at her how Lucifer does not love her before storming out. Still obsessed with winning him back, Eve decides to take him away from Chloe altogether. Kinley then suggests sending him to Hell so the two of them can rule as king and queen, and that summoning the demons to convince him will help. After she unties him, he ambushes her and tries to kill her. Reaching out for one of Maze's hidden blades, Eve stabs him in the neck and tells him to bring the demons to Earth, in which he eventually did after his death.
Eve spends the next morning covering up her involvement in Kinley's disappearance, when Maze walks and questions her. Maze storms out, leaving Eve wondering why she wasn't helping her anymore. She then meets with the demon possessing Kinley, Dromos, in a church and asks him how it went with Lucifer. She then realizes that he's changing the plans and will replace Lucifer with his nephew Charlie. After she tries to command them to stop, he yells at her and knocks her out, declaring that she is not their ruler.
Realizing what she did, she heads to Lucifer's penthouse and tells him and Chloe what she did. They leave to find Charlie after rightfully expressing their anger and disgust in what she did due to her naivety and selfishness. Wanting to redeem herself, Eve joins him at a theatre along with Amenadiel and Maze to save Charlie. They then confront the demons inside and after a fight ensues, she escapes with Charlie outside, but after a demon attacks her, she is saved by Chloe. Following the fight, she returns Charlie to Linda and Amenadiel.
Upon realizing that she was behaving with Lucifer like she did with Adam, she tells Maze that she needs to figure out who she really is by herself. After telling her that there may be connection between the two of them, she kisses Maze goodbye before heading off.
Powers and Abilities
Aside from rebirth, Eve has no other powers and is an ordinary human.
- Rebirth: Since Eve was created directly by the hand of God, she was capable of "slipping right back" into her old remains, causing them to revert into her original youthful appearance.
- Vast Knowledge: Since Eve had gotten bored due to centuries of being in paradise in Heaven, she started meeting and talking with any deceased righteous human that arrived in Silver City, and listened to their life stories. By doing so, she acquired an incredible amount of knowledge from them.
- Psychology: Eve was able to perform a sketchy psychological assessment on Chloe after talking with her for about a minute, being able to tell she is sad about something. She was also able to deduce that Lucifer tries to avoid Chloe because she rejected him.
- Multilingualism: Part of the knowledge Eve acquired includes the ability to understand and speak in multiple languages, including modern ones such as English in addition to Spanish and her native Adamic.
- In the Bible, Eve is one of the first two humans to walk the Earth, alongside Adam, where she was tempted by the Devil to defy God's demands. She is also the mother of Cain and Abel.
- Although she isn't directly villainous, Eve is responsible for Lucifer's behaviour throughout the season and was the one who selfishly summoned Dromos and the demons from Hell just so she could have his love to herself.
- Eve serves as the metaphorical "devil on the shoulder" in Lucifer's life during the seaon as she constantly encourages him to give in to his old darker behavior. This is in contrast to Chloe serving as the "angel on the shoulder", who encourages Lucifer to not give in to his dark side and do the right thing.
- Eve has a similar role to her son Marcus Pierce from Season 3, as while he was in love with Chloe, she was in love with Lucifer and were both envious of their true feelings.
- However, while Eve came to fully regret what she did just to gain his love and eventually redeemed herself, Pierce was less remorseful, while also refusing to face his own actions and would occasionally make excuses for some of them.
- She evenly openly expressed her disgust in what he did to Abel and Charlotte Richards.
- While Eve was the fourth season's secondary antagonist, Pierce was the third season's main antagonist.
- In Season 5, it was revealed that Eve was a pawn used by Michael to discredit Lucifer, influencing his brother into corrupting her in the Garden of Eden.
- Despite the fact that Lucifer killed her son, she doesn't hate him for it and even says that he had it coming for killing Abel.
