Eve Teschmacher is a member of a shadow organization known as Leviathan and formerly the loyal henchwoman of Lex Luthor, to whom she is madly in love. She has secretly worked for Lex as a double agent posing first as the personal assistant of Cat Grant and James Olsen at CatCo Worldwide Media, and later as the research assistant of Lena Luthor, helping with her experiments on Lex's behalf. She later revealed her true alliance and betrayed Lena, giving Lex a cure for his disease, taking part in his attempt to take over the USA and went into hiding after his death.

During Lena Luthor's first day as the owner of CatCo, Eve was thrilled to meet her up-close and warmly greeted her. As she went to get Lena some coffee, Lena suggested that Eve use the private elevator as it would be faster to traverse up and down the establishment that way. Eve initially shied away from the suggestion as that particular elevator was reserved only for those at the top of CatCo’s hierarchy. However, Lena stated that starting from that day on, anyone could use the elevator at their discretion, much to Eve's delight. Later that night, Eve was seen leaving the office with Lena.[17]

A few weeks later, Morgan Edge accused Lena of being responsible for many children in the city suffering from lead poisoning due to the lead bomb she created to counter the Daxamite invasion. When Lena returned to CatCo, she requested Eve bring her the CDC's reports on the lead poisoning, the victims' medical reports, and the statistics Edge was using. Eve agreed, also expressing to Lena her sympathies over the situation.

Eve promptly asked if it was the one written by Forrester from Scientific Universe Journal and recommended that Lena read Jen Steinmetz-O'Grady's work, whom she studied with at Yale. After Eve left, Lena was surprised that Eve had studied nuclear physics, to which James answered that nothing of Eve could surprise him anymore.

As Lena and Eve observed a sample of Samantha's blood, Lena suddenly got an idea on how to permanently separate Samantha from Reign.[21] After Reign and the Children of Juru were finally defeated, Lena, having secretly synthesized a portion of the Harun-El for her own experiments, called Eve to inform her that the second phase of their Harun-El trials were ready to began.[22]

One day, Eve arrived late to work because of the wet leaflets spread on her car by the Children of Liberty. She apologized to Lena, who told her not to worry and that she hoped James would denounce the group's actions on Sean Chiu's TV show, "The Counterpoint Daily", which Eve proclaimed to love. Just then, one of the heart samples under glass started to collapse. They attempted to get the heart to beat again with electric shocks, but the sample died. After finding that the tumors were still growing at the time of collapse, a despondent Lena ordered Eve to perform a biopsy before destroying the sample. Eve tried to cheer up her boss by pointing out that they still had two protocols left, and since Lena was trying to cure cancer, time would definitely be needed.

Later that day, after more hearts "died", Eve and Lena noticed that instead of shrinking, the tumors keep getting bigger. Eve suggested to spend the night adjusting the protocol, but Lena told her to go home to her family for Thanksgiving. Eve protested that she didn't even wish to spend time with them, but Lena insisted they take a break from the experiments until the following day and told Eve to incinerate the heart. However, as she set the heart sample on fire, Eve discovered that the heart had become fireproof, shocking both women. The next day, Eve was concerned over Lena's disposition. Realizing the Harun-El could potentially give humans superpowers, Lena stated that the world is on the verge of a civil war between humans and aliens and that the people they love would need their protection. Lena decided to move forward with the "Harun-El Protocol" and asked Eve to find a human subject for their next set of trials.[1]

She began to describe him as a "really nice guy" with bright green eyes like Lena's, but the latter cut her speech short; Lena explained that performing experiments on a human is an extremely serious task and it would be more difficult if Eve made her empathize with the subject. Eve sincerely apologized, telling Lena how much she admired the former for all the good her experiments would bring for humanity, citing her cousin, who was diagnosed with a metastasized form of cancer. Lena then asked Eve to gave her the subject's folder, stating that they would refer to him only as "Subject 0331".[2]

Due to having flinched, Eve was scolded again by Lex, however she reassured it was not because of the murder but for Otis, who was killed again by Ben Lockwood; Lex ordered Eve to kill the man and then asked her if she realized that the World was about to be theirs, prompting the girl to answer that she knew it from the very first time they met, they shared a kiss before Eve departed.

Personality

Sweet, kind, timid Eve

Eve's sweet, kind and timid façade.

"She cries more than Halle Berry at award shows."
Cat Grant about Eve's façade.[src]

Initially, Eve appeared to be a kind, caring, selfless and intelligent individual, who has a sense of justice, honor and good morals, considering the anti-aliens movements as "creeps"[1] and being praised by Kara herself for her sweetness and smartness.[7] However, she was also very sensitive and prone to crying[7][8] to the point to being described as a weeper by Cat Grant.[7] Nevertheless, Eve is an extremely hard-working woman dedicated to her job.[17][1][6][11] She also has the habit to apologizing even when it's not necessary,[19][1][17] and it's extremely rare to see her mad at someone or something.[23]

Despite appearing as an airhead and a klutz, Eve is actually quite smart, intuitive and seemingly empathic, always proving to be supporting and full of attention for her friends and co-workers, as demonstrated when she realizes of Kara and Mon-El's feelings for one another before themselves,[8] when she tried to comfort Lena Luthor over the time needed for their experiments[1][24] and their importance for the World,[2] or when talking with James Olsen about his break-up with Lena.[24]

Although usually pretty mild and kind of cowardly,[20] Eve proved to be very brave if necessary, facing with absolutely no qualm the seige of L-Corp at the hands of Mercy Graves and her terroristic group.[5]

It also seem that Eve has developed some sort of fear for Cat Grant.[7][8][24]

The real Eve

The real Eve.

"Sorry, not sorry."
"How long?
"
"Forever. It's nothing personal."
—Eve and Lena Luthor[src]

However, Eve's kind and timid traits are nothing more than a façade, in truth, Eve is actually a cold-blooded murderer and a traitorous sociopath who's been working as Lex Luthor's loyal double-agent for years,[10] she considers Lex the brightest mind on Earth as well as the only one who really protect humanity from destruction and has proven to be willing to do (literally) anything for him.[4] Eve has a twisted, dark and witty sense of humor, as demonstrated while mocking Lena after revealing her betrayal saying it was nothing personal,[10] or while making fun of the American's lifestyle[4] or her accent[3] when she scolded Red Daughter.

In stark contrast with her façade, Eve is incredibly brave and nearly fearless, making no problem to infiltrate an American aircraft carrier, directly confront both Red Daughter[4] and Supergirl herself, threaten a U.S. senator,[3] or engaging in a fight into a facility that was about to self-destruct.[26]

Eve is also quite scrupulous, as she meticulously reported every detail of her work (including notes) on ordered files.[26]

However, Eve has been demonstrated not to be completely immoral or without a conscience as she might seem, being (genuinely) worried when Lex voluntarily poisoned himself with radiations, as well as getting disturbed by the sight of the execution of a Kaznia soldier she recognized as the one who had made Red Daughter "uncomfortable"[4] or risking her freedom in order to save Bitsie's life,[3] she also stated that she really loved both Kara and Lena, despite not as mutch as Lex; she also seemed sincerely sorry after she had to stab Lena in the chest during their fight.[26]

Eve is madly in love with Lex, although not reciprocated.[4]

Due to the revelation that Eve is a triple agent working for Leviathan it is unclear how much (if any) of all those personality traits are true. However she is shown to be extremely scared of Leviathan.[9]
