— Larentia's lesson to Evangeline

Evangeline Artemia Samos is a magnetron of House Samos, and the second child of Volo Samos and Larentia Viper.

Physical description Edit

Evangeline has long silver hair and cold, charcoal black eyes. She almost always wears clothing that is made of metal and has the ability to change her dress without removing it in some cases. She often wears a cruel smirk on her face, especially when looking at Mare. Her teeth are also described as being white and sharp. She is described as being beautiful, having the same porcelain skin and eyes as her mother. Evangeline's mother is of East Asian descent, meaning that Evangeline likely shares several East Asian features with her mother.[1]

Personality Edit

Evangeline, like most of her family, is perceived as cold-hearted and cruel to almost all people. She is sharp-tongued and speaks her mind. She takes her time to gloat when she wins Queenstrial and later, to threaten Mare. She is stubborn and fights for what she wants, as seen when she defies her instructor Rane Arven and demands to fight Mare. Evangeline loves her brother dearly, promising to free Mare as long as she left him alive. She is very loyal and affectionate to those she holds dear.

Biography Edit

Evangeline is a member of House Samos, the daughter of Volo Samos and younger sister to Ptolemus Samos. She was born 10 months after Cal, being made to marry him one day. Her father trained her since she was a child, asking which things made from metal she could use as weapons. She has since had a habit to sense in the back of her mind and calculate what can be turned into a weapon.

She was in Whitefire Palace when Mare Barrow was imprisoned. There, she forced Mare into Maven's way to make him disoriented so that her plan could continue. Evangeline frees Mare, and flees with the rest of House Samos to the kingdom of the Rift where they rule.

She is forcibly betrothed to Cal at the behest of her father Volo; this is done to secure the alliance between the newly divided kingdoms of the Rift and Norta. The betrothal causes great conflict and unspoken tension among the family since Evangeline is heartbroken.

Evangeline tries to find a way to escape her betrothal so that she can be with Elane Haven. When she learns that marriage between two women is allowed and respected in Montfort, she begins to quietly desire a new life for herself in Montfort.

After the allied forces of the Rift and Norta take back the palace in Archeon, Evangeline confronts her parents and asks them one more time to let her be free. They refuse. Evangeline then tries to run away. Her mother Larentia sets wolves on her; as Evangeline is held down by the weight of the wolf, her mother calls her "unnatural", bringing Evangeline to tears. Ptolemus saves Evangeline at the last moment by immobilizing their parents. The siblings run away together.

At the end of War Storm, Evangeline is living in the capital of Montfort as an honored guest alongside her lover Elane, beloved brother Ptolemus, and his lover Wren.

Abilities and skills Edit

Evangeline is a powerful magnetron who can manipulate metal. She is also described as nimble.

Relationships Edit

Ptolemus Samos Edit

Evangeline is shown to have a very close relationship with her elder brother Ptolemus, who is four years older than her. Both are very protective of each other. When Evangeline's life is threatened during the Sun Shooting, Ptolemus goes into a frightening rage and kills a member of the Scarlet Guard. He keeps a close eye on his sister, serving as both her escort and guardian after her betrothal to Cal. In return, Evangeline frees Mare and makes her promise not to kill Ptolemus. The siblings also have a great understanding of each other. Ptolemus marries Elane, Evangeline's lover so that Evangeline and Elane can stay close together. Evangeline's nickname for Ptolemus is "Tolly", while his nicknames for her are "Evie" and "Eve".

Elane Haven Edit

Elane is Evangeline's lover. Evangeline originally plans to make Elane her consort after her marriage with Prince Cal, though her plans come to naught when Maven takes over the kingdom. Even after Evangeline is engaged to Maven, she and Elane keep a close relationship behind closed doors. At the end of King's Cage, her father agrees to a contract and she is forced to marry Cal, which breaks her heart and causes her to not speak to her father for weeks. However, at the end of War Storm, Evangeline runs away with Elane, Ptolemus, and Wren to the Free Republic of Montfort so that she and Elane are free to be together.

Her Parents Edit

Evangeline had a very respectful relationship with her parents, although they were hash and strict. Because of her arranged marriage to Cal from the end of King's Cage, she no longer holds the same respect for them. This didn't last long before she escaped their clutches with Ptolemus and Elane.

Tiberias VII "Cal" Calore Edit

Cal is Evangeline's first betrothed. She was intentionally conceived in order to be Cal's queen after Queenstrial. In Red Queen, Evangeline is seen as being really protective of Cal. We later learned that this is because she really wanted the crown. After Cal leaves with Mare at the end of Red Queen, she grows closer to Elane Haven. In King's Cage, Evangeline and Cal grow to somewhat tolerate each other. At the end of King's Cage, Volo Samos reveals that he wants Evangeline to marry Cal in order to form an alliance with the Rift. Evangeline becomes Cal's betrothed again, and she tries to find ways to get Mare and Cal back together. She does this because she wants to be with Elane and not Cal. At the end of War Storm, Evangeline and Cal leave things off at a good point.

Mare Barrow Edit

Evangeline hates Mare Barrow throughout most of the series. The two first meet during Queenstrial when Mare interrupts Evangeline with her lightning. This leaves them off on a bad note as Evangeline tells Mare that if she gets in her way she'll kill her slowly. Mare is terrified of Evangeline during Red Queen, but not so much in King's Cage. When Evangeline is betrothed to Maven, Evangeline and Mare have many unpleasant discussions with one another. Evangeline tries to push Mare and Maven together so she won't have to marry him. However, she fails. In War Storm, Evangeline and Mare still dislike each other very much. The Silver Elite and Scarlet Guard have to work together so Mare and Evangeline see each other a lot, whether it's in meetings or during battles. Evangeline spars with Mare for training, again trying to push her and Cal together so she won't have to marry him. This time, it works a bit. In Broken Throne, Evangeline becomes Mare's bodyguard. Surprisingly, the two end up in an agreement to friendship.

Trivia Edit

  • She slept with a bullet around her neck for two years as a part of her training.
  • Evangeline was born ten months after Cal: evidence of Volo's and Larentia's efforts to produce a daughter that would one day become queen.
  • Her favorite family estate is the Rift House.
  • During Evangeline's engagement to Maven, Maven calls Elane a whore. This infuriates Evangeline so much she wants to kill him on the spot.
  • When Evangeline was twelve, she horribly injured Elane in training. Crying for a week, Evangeline felt horrible and apologized.
  • Evangeline is a lesbian.[2]
