Evelyn is young and idealistic. She was elected the youngest member of the 119th Congress, and ran her campaign mostly through online and crowd-sourced fundraising. She had a vlog-channel that explained socialist politics, and once she turned 25 she figured that she might as well try it out herself. She never expected to become an overnight viral sensation, and was extremely baffled by her success. Therefore, she’s somewhat humble and has a very ‘aww shucks, me?’ attitude at first. However, she’s very much a true believer, and reached political success without having to go through the drudgery of fundraising and kissing-up that most candidates do. Therefore, she’s passionate about using government to make a difference in the lives of ordinary Americans, and willing to step on toes to get her way. During her past year and half in Congress, her idealism has been dampened somewhat. The constant struggle of trying to get enough votes to pass legislation was eye opening to her. She’s learning to play the political game more, although she keeps an upbeat and hopeful attitude.
While Evelyn is has genuinely altruistic motives in politics, she had a bit of a spoiled upbringing. She was raised in upper-middle class household, and has never really had to struggle for success. She’s a bit entitled and deep down, she feels like the success she’s experienced is her due. While she would never openly claim ambitions of holding higher elective office like the Speakership or Presidency, it’s only natural for the media to speculate about the bright future of such a young star. And of course, in her heart of hearts she fully expects to someday ascend to those high positions.
As a Catholic, Evelyn got through the Sickness by sequestering herself in prayer, and opening her heart to Jesus. She considers her gifts a blessing from God, and herself to be one of Jesus’ chosen prophets. She channels God’s gift through prayer. While she’s praying and saying Hail Maries, or clutching her crucifix, she can weave spells using God’s power.
