===Early Life===
 
{{Quote|We all have our mothers... even [[Alpha Vampire|me]].|[[Alpha Vampire]]|[[Family Matters]]}}Eve predated [[angels]] (except [[Archangels]]), which would dictate that she also existed before the creation of [[Heaven]], [[Hell]], [[humans]] and [[Demons|demons]].

Eve predated [[angels]] (except [[Archangels]]), which would dictate that she also existed before the creation of [[Hell]], [[humans]], and [[Demons]]. She claimed to have known God.<ref name="And Then There Were None" /> Her origins seem to overlap with that of the Leviathans, a primordial, proto-monster species which also predated most other creations of God. In fact, one of her first children, the [[Alpha Vampire]], implied in a hostile conversation with a high-ranking Leviathan, [[Edgar]], that Eve was herself either a Leviathan or descended from them. Edgar acknowledged that the Monsters Eve sired do come from the Leviathans, though "barely", and confirmed that he knew Eve. At some point of her long existence, Eve created the [[Alphas]], which were the first [[monster]]s of their allotted species. Before re-emerging in the 21st century, Eve had last been on Earth around ten thousand years ago.

===[[Season 6]]===
 
[[Crowley]] and [[Castiel]] began working together in order to find Purgatory and use the [[soul]]s within as power; to this end, they needed to interrogate Eve for information. Crowley tortured and slaughtered various species of Alphas and monsters in an attempt to lure her to Earth. She was first referenced when the [[Alpha Vampire]] told the Winchesters that "we all have our mothers. Even me." However, he refuses to elaborate on this statement.<ref name="Family Matters" />

Eventually, Crowley's gambit worked; an angered Eve ordered the [[Alphas]] to amass an army and arranged for her release with dragons, who abducted virginal women and used one as a sacrifice to summon her.<ref name="Like A Virgin" /> She created new breeds of monsters, known colloquially as "[[Khan worm]]" and "Jefferson Starships," in attempt to create a new, "perfect" monster which she planned to infect the entire human race so that Crowley would be denied ''any'' souls. Several of her early experiments result in failure as the creatures died prematurely. However, she managed to succeed in Ryan Silver, an orphan boy whom the Winchesters "rescue"; Ryan later converted his brother and both attacked their uncle.<ref name="Mommy Dearest" />

With [[Bobby Singer]] and Castiel waiting outside, the Winchesters entered the diner in which Eve was hiding and discovered that they were surrounded by hybrids and Eve herself. She took their weapons and detected [[Phoenix ash]] in the shotguns, so she handed them over to one of her children and ordered their immediate destruction.

Eve explained to the brothers the reason why she came to Earth and what she hoped to achieve; to emphasize her point, she shape shifted into the likeness of [[Mary Winchester|their deceased mother]]. Dean claimed that her arrival was pointless, as they believed that Crowley had already been killed months before, but she revealed that Crowley was indeed still alive torturing her [[Monster|children]] and searching for Purgatory.

Eve also informed them of the "perfect monster" she had created in Ryan Silver and of the mass-infection that they inadvertently helped spread. Her children then brought Castiel and Bobby into the diner.

Eve offered Sam and Dean the chance to work for her in capturing Crowley. Dean refused to work with a monster, however, and told her "bite me". She obliged, deciding to force them to obey her anyway by making them into her children, but was poisoned by [[Phoenix]] ash in his blood, as he had ingested it with a shot of whiskey.

Eve choked and burned from the inside before falling to the floor, dead, with her essence and what comprised her mortal form presumably returning to Purgatory after her demise. At once her children attacked the group, but with Eve no longer suppressing Castiel's powers, he effortlessly slew all the remaining monsters in the diner. Afterwards Castiel quickly healed Dean of the infection from Eve's bite. He then took the hunters to stop the Silvers, only to discover that demons sent by Crowley had already killed them.

Afterwards, Crowley recovered Eve's body and performed an autopsy. He was upset with Castiel for having allowed Dean to kill her, as they had lost their best chance at opening Purgatory.

==Personality==
 
{{Quote|After all, a mother defends her children.|Eve|[[Mommy Dearest]]}}Like [[Death]], Eve was normally content to uphold the natural order in which [[monster]]s and [[humans]] killed each other in turn; however, when [[Crowley]] began capturing, torturing, and killing her children in droves,<ref name="Season 6">[[Season 6]]</ref> she decided to take matters into her own hands and had her children resurrect her so she could protect them. She was also very spiteful, deciding to turn every human into a monster to deprive the King of Hell the power of any [[soul]]s at all. She exhibited few emotions beyond serenity, but her decision to pose as a waitress merely to surprise [[Dean Winchester|Dean]] and [[Sam Winchester]] suggests that she had a sense of humor. She seemed to be upfront and honest when speaking with the Winchesters. She also had a mocking side to her sense of humor as she took their mother's form to taunt them. 
 
   
Eve was largely apathetic towards the human race as a whole, but occasionally showed disdain or cruel amusement towards them. She began compelling even her benevolent children, such as [[Lenore]], to kill or turn as many as possible against their will once she arrived on Earth, presumably to build her army. She went about trapping a bar filled with people, infecting some, and allowing the others to be killed while she watched on and casually sipped at a drink. However, she was initially willing to negotiate with the Winchesters if they agreed to help her capture Crowley.<ref name="Mommy Dearest" />

===[[Season 15]]===
  +
In ''[[The Trap]]'', a [[Leviathan]] in [[Purgatory]] reveals that Eve is seeking [[revenge]] against [[Dean]] and [[Castiel]] for killing the [[Alphas]] and absorbing all the [[soul]]s of Purgatory, Eve's "children." Several Leviathans capture Castiel and attempt to bring him to Eve, but Castiel manages to escape while carrying a Leviathan Blossom.
   
When explaining what she had done to someone she had turned, Eve simply called her infection "a gift". She viewed herself as a loving mother with regards to all monsters descended from her. She was angered by Crowley's barbaric attempts to use her children to find [[Purgatory]], and arranged to be summoned onto [[Earth]] in order to stop him. She also seems to look down on [[God]], whom she implied to know, for having abandoned his children (i.e. humankind), something she claims she would never do.

Eve's true appearance was not known; however, a glimpse of it on a video camera revealed a gray, decrepit and somewhat shadowed face. In her introduction, her eyes glowed a fiery yellow-orange, but in the said recording they were milky-white. Upon her death, her veins darkened and she bled watery black blood like [[Leviathans]].

When Eve manifested on [[Earth]], she possessed the body of a young brunette girl wearing a white dress whom two dragons offered up to her as tribute.<ref name="Like A Virgin" /> She briefly took on the form of [[Mary Winchester]].<ref name="Mommy Dearest" /> After death her body was collected by Crowley who began an autopsy. Crowley found that her vessel's interior body cavity was ''highly'' altered with the addition of an egg sac containing hundreds if not thousands of eggs. Her brain also apparently maintained the empathetic link with her [[Monster|children]] even after her physical body's death.

She was angered by Crowley's barbaric attempts to use her children to find [[Purgatory]] and arranged to be summoned onto [[Earth]] in order to stop him.  While viewing herself as a loving and caring mother to her children, she is not above killing any of them if they pose a threat to her other children as she created [[Dragon-Killing Swords|special magic swords]] specifically designed for killing the very powerful dragons, should they become a threat to any of the other monster races she has made. She also seems to look down on [[God]], whom she claimed to know, for having abandoned his children, i.e. humankind, something she claims she would never do.

==Powers and Abilities==
 
==Powers and Abilities==
Eve was a particularly old and powerful entity, and her power compared to that of the [[Leviathans]] is thoroughly unknown. However, being related to them, she shared certain characteristics with the Leviathans, notably a resistance to angelic powers and shapeshifting. Based on what little is known about Eve, she can at least be considered as powerful as the [[deities|old gods]].

Eve was very old and powerful, stronger than any monster. Her power compared to that of the [[Leviathans]] is thoroughly unknown. However, being related to them, she shared some abilities with the Leviathans, notably a resistance to angelic powers and shapeshifting.
   
Eve was also one of the very few entities capable of creating new beings and one of the ''only'' beings with the rare ability of permanently altering souls to create [[monster]]s otherwise known as ''Fallen Beasts'', a trait she passed on to all of her children. Eve also referred to the souls in Purgatory as her "supply", implying she could draw on souls for power, not unlike angels and demons.<ref name="Mommy Dearest" /> [[Crowley]] was also very confident that Eve could have opened the door to Purgatory.<ref>[[The Man Who Would Be King]]</ref>

*'''[[Immortality]]:''' Eve was immortal and could not die of disease or old age. She referred to herself as being older than even the angels.
+
*'''[[Immortality]]''' - Eve was immortal and could not die of disease or old age. She referred to herself as being older than even the angels.
*'''[[Invulnerability]]:''' Eve was presumed to be immune to most forms of conventional harm and the only documented method for harming her was with the ashes of a [[Phoenix|phoenix]].
+
[[File:SPN 0057.jpg|thumb|250px|Eve created many monsters simply by touch.]]
*'''[[Regeneration]]:''' Eve can evidently regenerate from damage sustained on her body. When she took over her vessel and was released from Purgatory, Eve's arms and legs were covered in severe burns, however she later reappeared completely restored.
+
*'''[[Invulnerability]]''' - Conventional weapons and most mystic ones did not have any effect on Eve. The only known thing that could kill her was [[Phoenix]] ash, either by ingestion, being injected with it, or being shot with shotgun shells filled with the ashes.
*'''[[Super strength|Superhuman Strength]]:''' Eve possessed a measure of superhuman strength, seen when she ripped off the lock and handles from a door to prevent her future victims from escaping. She was self-assured enough to claim that she would take care of the demon Crowley if she was to find him.
+
*'''[[Flight]]''' - Once she took her vessel, she rose from Purgatory.
*'''[[Super speed|Superhuman Speed]]:''' Eve could evidently move at inhuman speeds. She displayed this by instantly running behind Dean while having been talking to him face to face less than a second before and when she appeared out of nowhere behind a truck driver.
+
*'''[[Possession]]''' - In order to manifest on Earth, Eve required the use a [[Eve's vessel|vessel]], and that vessel had to be a virgin girl.
*'''[[Super senses|Heightened Senses]]:''' Eve's senses were superhumanly acute, seeing as she managed to realize that Dean and Sam had imbued their shotguns with ammunition laced with phoenix ash by simply smelling the barrels of their weapons.
+
[[File:EveandDean 6x19.jpg|thumb|250px|Eve turning Dean.]]
[[File:SPN 0057.jpg|thumb|220px|Eve created many monsters simply by touch.]]
+
*'''[[Biokinesis]]''' - She was able to create new species by mixing the other monster species. Eve, upon possessing her vessel, was also able to greatly alter her vessel's physical functions. The most notable traits were when her womb was altered to reproduce several hundreds of monster eggs. The other alteration was when even dead, monsters were linked to her cerebral cortex & could feel everything she felt, even if it was a small tingle.
*'''[[Biokinesis|Advanced Biokinesis]]:''' Eve's signature ability was her production of unique supernatural chemical formulas, with which she could to turn humans into [[Monster|monsters]] vampires, ghouls, werewolves and the like. She could even create new monster species by means of experimentation. However, she apparently needed to perfect this ability when attempting to produce a new kind of monster, seeing as how a number of her creations died prematurely before she eventually succeeded in building what she deemed "[[Jefferson Starships|the perfect beast]]" and she dismissed these failures as "beta tests."<ref name="Mommy Dearest" /> Eve seemed to require physical contact (e.g a bite, a kiss, or even a gentle touch) in order to induce such changes in individuals herself.
+
**'''[[Conversion]]''' - She could turn [[humans]] into whatever kind of monster she desired, through physical contact, a bite, a kiss, or even a gentle touch. She apparently needed to perfect this ability when attempting to produce a new kind of monster, seeing as how a number of her creations died prematurely before she eventually succeeded in creating "[[Jefferson Starships|the perfect monster]]." She dismissed these failures as "beta tests."<ref name="Mommy Dearest" />
**'''[[Conversion]]:''' As a side effect of her conversion, the souls of Eve's victims were altered and when they die their soul goes to neither Heaven nor Hell, but instead is redirected straight to Purgatory.
+
**'''Monster Birthing''' - As the Mother of All monsters, she can also give birth to them. This was seen during Crowley's autopsy of the deceased body, in which he found hundreds, if not thousands, of monster eggs in her womb.
**[[File:MonsterEggs.jpg|thumb|190px|right|The eggs inside Eve.]]'''Monster Birthing:''' The womb of Eve's vessel was biologically altered to continuously produce and incubate hundreds, if not thousands, of monster eggs, even after the death of both Eve and the host. Eve could release her creations through her mouth.<ref>[[...And Then There Were None]]</ref>
+
*'''[[Regeneration]]''' - When she rose from Purgatory, Eve's arms and legs were covered in severe burns, however she later reappeared completely restored.
**'''[[Telepathy|Psychic Connection to Monsters]]:''' All of Eve's [[Alphas|creations]] and their [[Monster|own progeny]] were psychically connected to her, and she could use this link to to send them messages and forcibly compel them to do her bidding, even while imprisoned in [[Purgatory]]. She in turn sees through the eyes of all monsters, hears what they hear, and knows what they know; [[Lenore]] compared it to being like a video camera for Eve.<ref name="Mommy Dearest" /> Even after Eve's demise, monsters are apparently still bonded to her vessel's cerebral cortex, as when Crowley inserted an electric probe into her head, a nearby restrained vampire reacted in agony. Due to being created by Eve directly, her [[Alphas|firstborns]] bear a stronger psychic connection to her.
+
*'''[[Super Strength]]''' - Her strength was far superior to humans, many earthly supernatural creatures and even regular angels and seraphim. She was confident enough to claim that she would take care of the demon Crowley if she was to find him. Humans were no threat to her in terms of bodily force. This was shown when she ripped a lock and handles from a door.  
*'''[[Shapeshifting]]:''' Eve could instantaneously modulate her form at will. At one point, she modified her vessel's appearance to look and sound exactly like Mary Winchester. Her shapeshifting was advanced to a degree demonstrated only by a few other creatures, namely the [[Alpha Shapeshifter]], the [[Leviathans]], and the [[Archangels]].
+
*'''[[Super Speed]]''' - She could move at undetectable speeds for a human being, allowing her to reappear in different locations at will. She displayed this by instantly running behind Dean while having been talking to him face to face less than a second before and when she appeared out of nowhere behind a truck driver.
*'''[[Flight]]:''' Once she took her vessel, she rose out from the depths Purgatory.
+
*'''[[Shapeshifting]]''' - At one point, she modified her vessel's appearance to look and sound like Mary Winchester. Her shapeshifting was advanced to a degree seen only on few other creatures—the [[Alpha Shapeshifter]], the [[Leviathans]], and the [[Archangels]].
*'''[[Possession]]:''' To once again walk the Earth, Eve required the use a [[Eve's vessel|vessel]] and that vessel apparently had to be a virgin girl. Her presence within a host body also altered its physiology (i.e. black blood and a highly mutated womb).
+
*'''[[Telepathy]]''' - She was psychically linked to all monsters, allowing her to know what they do and speak to them through their minds and could communicate with her children even while imprisoned in [[Purgatory]]. According to her, she was aware of the hunters' arrival and intent to kill her before they met, and perceived Crowley torturing her children as though she were his victim instead. She could also read a human's mind, as she was capable of shapeshifting into Sam and Dean's mother despite never having seen her, and knew that she died to protect them.<ref name="Mommy Dearest" />
*'''[[Power Negation|Angelic Power Negation]]:''' Due to her advanced age and knowledge over an angel's inner mechanisms, Eve was able to block [[Seraphim|high-ranking angelic beings]] from accessing their powers by 'unplugging' them as shown when she negated Castiel's abilities through her mere presence.
+
**'''[[Mind Control|Compulsion]]''' - Using her mental link to her children, Eve could control the various monster lines and instill bloodlust in them, even over great distances including through dimensions as well, as seen when she compelled her many children even the more benevolent ones like Lenore to attack and turn as many humans as they could. She was residing in Purgatory at the time.
*'''[[Supernatural Concealment]]:''' Eve was able to conceal her presence from the watch of Castiel and any other angel. Thus the Winchester brothers and their allies had to rely on the willing testimony of a monster ally to know her whereabouts.
+
*'''[[Super Senses]]''' - She possessed heightened senses. She managed to realize Dean and Sam were using Phoenix ashes by simply smelling the barrels of their shotguns.
  +
*'''Angelic [[Power Negation]]''' - Due to her advanced age and knowledge, Eve was able to block angels from accessing their powers by 'unplugging' them as shown when she negated Castiel's abilities through her mere presence. Her overall knowledge over angels was extensive. She shares this ability with the Leviathans, though unlike them she is capable of negating angels' physical abilities as well, rendering them as weak and vulnerable as humans.
  +
*'''[[Supernatural Concealment]]''' - Eve was able to conceal her presence from the watch of Castiel and any other angel. The protagonists had to rely on the willing testimony of a monster ally to know her whereabouts. Like Angelic Power Negation, this is an ability Eve shares with the Leviathans.

Revision as of 22:38, February 26, 2020


Your father made you and then abandoned you, so you pray. You see signs where there's nothing. But truth is, your Apocalypse came and went, and you didn't even notice. A mother would never abandon her children like he did. You'll see.

Eve was a mysterious and powerful being known by the title of Mother of All. She was in the depths of Purgatory until she was released by dragons and arrived on Earth using a young virgin girl as a vessel.[1] Like the Leviathans, to whom she was related, Eve was part of existence before angels, which gave her an advantage over them, being able to inhibit them from using their holy powers.[2]

Eve created the Alphas, which were the first monsters of their allotted kind from whom their entire species descended from.[3] She created a worm-like creature, which Dean dubbed the "Khan worm".[4] On her last appearance in this realm, she did what she called "Beta testing", birthing creatures that Dean named "Jefferson Starships," which were monster hybrids that she mass-produced.[2] Her only known weakness was that of Phoenix ash.[5] She was killed by Dean, who mixed the ashes in his drink earlier, and when she bit him to turn him into a monster, she ingested the ashes and died.

Her essence and what comprised her mortal form returned to Purgatory after her death. There, she later sought revenge upon Dean and Castiel for their actions when they returned to Purgatory in search of the Leviathan Blossom.[6]

Biography

We all have our mothers... even me.

Early life

Eve predated angels (except Archangels), which would dictate that she also existed before the creation of Hell, humans, and Demons. She claimed to have known God.[4] Her origins seem to overlap with that of the Leviathans, a primordial, proto-monster species which also predated most other creations of God. In fact, one of her first children, the Alpha Vampire, implied in a hostile conversation with a high-ranking Leviathan, Edgar, that Eve was herself either a Leviathan or descended from them. Edgar acknowledged that the Monsters Eve sired do come from the Leviathans, though "barely", and confirmed that he knew Eve. At some point of her long existence, Eve created the Alphas, which were the first monsters of their allotted species. Before re-emerging in the 21st century, Eve had last been on Earth around ten thousand years ago.

Season 6

Crowley and Castiel began working together in order to find Purgatory and use the souls within as power; to this end, they needed to interrogate Eve for information. Crowley tortured and slaughtered various species of Alphas and monsters in an attempt to lure her to Earth. She was first referenced when the Alpha Vampire told the Winchesters that "we all have our mothers. Even me." However, he refuses to elaborate on this statement.[3]

EveRising

Eve rising from Purgatory.

Eventually, Crowley's gambit worked; an angered Eve ordered the Alphas to amass an army and arranged for her release with dragons, who abducted virginal women and used one as a sacrifice to summon her.[1] She created new breeds of monsters, known colloquially as "Khan worm" and "Jefferson Starships," in attempt to create a new, "perfect" monster which she planned to infect the entire human race so that Crowley would be denied any souls. Several of her early experiments result in failure as the creatures died prematurely. However, she managed to succeed in Ryan Silver, an orphan boy whom the Winchesters "rescue"; Ryan later converted his brother and both attacked their uncle.[2]

With Bobby Singer and Castiel waiting outside, the Winchesters entered the diner in which Eve was hiding and discovered that they were surrounded by hybrids and Eve herself. She took their weapons and detected Phoenix ash in the shotguns, so she handed them over to one of her children and ordered their immediate destruction.

Eve explained to the brothers the reason why she came to Earth and what she hoped to achieve; to emphasize her point, she shapeshifted into the likeness of their deceased mother. Dean claimed that her arrival was pointless, as they believed that Crowley had already been killed months before, but she revealed that Crowley was indeed still alive torturing her children and searching for Purgatory.

Eve also informed them of the "perfect monster" she had created in Ryan Silver and of the mass-infection that they inadvertently helped spread. Her children then brought Castiel and Bobby into the diner.

Eve offered Sam and Dean the chance to work for her in capturing Crowley. Dean refused to work with a monster, however, and told her "bite me". She obliged, deciding to force them to obey her anyway by making them into her children, but was poisoned by Phoenix ash in his blood, as he had ingested it with a shot of whiskey.

Mommy

Eve's death.

Eve choked and burned from the inside before falling to the floor, dead. At once her children attacked the group, but with Eve no longer suppressing Castiel's powers, he effortlessly slew all the remaining monsters in the diner. Afterwards, Castiel quickly healed Dean of the infection from Eve's bite. He then took the hunters to stop the Silvers, only to discover that demons sent by Crowley had already killed them.

Afterwards, Crowley recovered Eve's body and performed an autopsy. He was upset with Castiel for having allowed Dean to kill her, as they had lost their best chance at opening Purgatory.

Eve was sent back to Purgatory upon death.

Season 7

In There Will Be Blood, the Alpha Vampire identifies himself as "a son of Eve." Edgar tells him that he knew Eve "and honestly, your mommy's a whore." This enrages the Alpha Vampire who attacks Edgar.

Season 15

In The Trap, a Leviathan in Purgatory reveals that Eve is seeking revenge against Dean and Castiel for killing the Alphas and absorbing all the souls of Purgatory, Eve's "children." Several Leviathans capture Castiel and attempt to bring him to Eve, but Castiel manages to escape while carrying a Leviathan Blossom.

Physical Appearance

EveonCamera

Eve captured on camera.

Eve's true appearance was not known; however, a glimpse of it on a video camera revealed a gray, withered, somewhat shadowed face. In her introduction, her eyes glowed a fiery yellow-orange, but in the said recording they were milky-white. Upon her death, her veins darkened and she bled watery black blood like Leviathans.

When Eve manifested on Earth, she possessed the body of a young brunette girl wearing a white dress whom two dragons offered up to her as tribute.[1] She briefly took on the form of Mary Winchester.[2] After death her body was collected by Crowley who began an autopsy. Crowley found that her vessel's interior body cavity was highly altered with the addition of an egg sac containing hundreds if not thousands of eggs. Her brain also apparently maintained the empathetic link with her children even after her physical body's death.

Personality

After all, a mother defends her children.
— Eve
in Mommy Dearest
Like Death, Eve was normally content to uphold the natural order in which monsters and humans killed each other in turn; however, when Crowley began capturing, torturing, and killing her children in droves,[7] she decided to turn every human into a monster to deprive him of the power of any souls. She exhibited few emotions beyond serenity, but her decision to pose as a waitress merely to surprise Dean and Sam Winchester suggests that she had a sense of humor. She seemed to be upfront and honest when speaking with the Winchesters. She also had a mocking side to her sense of humor as she took their mother's form to taunt them. 

Eve was largely apathetic towards the human race as a whole, but occasionally showed disdain or cruel amusement towards them. She began compelling even her benevolent children, such as Lenore, to kill or turn as many as possible against their will once she arrived on Earth, presumably to build her army. She went about trapping a bar filled with people, infecting some, and allowing the others to be killed while she watched on and casually sipped at a drink. However, she was initially willing to negotiate with the Winchesters if they agreed to help her capture Crowley.[2]

EveTownspeople

Eve turns the townspeople.

When explaining what she had done to someone she had turned, Eve simply called her infection "a gift". She viewed herself as a loving mother with regards to all monsters descended from her. She was angered by Crowley's barbaric attempts to use her children to find Purgatory and arranged to be summoned onto Earth in order to stop him.  While viewing herself as a loving and caring mother to her children, she is not above killing any of them if they pose a threat to her other children as she created special magic swords specifically designed for killing the very powerful dragons, should they become a threat to any of the other monster races she has made. She also seems to look down on God, whom she claimed to know, for having abandoned his children, i.e. humankind, something she claims she would never do.

Powers and Abilities

Eve was very old and powerful, stronger than any monster. Her power compared to that of the Leviathans is thoroughly unknown. However, being related to them, she shared some abilities with the Leviathans, notably a resistance to angelic powers and shapeshifting.

Eve was also one of the very few entities capable of creating new beings and one of the only beings with the rare ability of permanently altering souls to create monsters otherwise known as Fallen Beasts, a trait she passed on to all of her children. Eve also referred to the souls in Purgatory as her 'supply', implying she could draw on souls for power, not unlike angels and demons.[2]

  • Immortality - Eve was immortal and could not die of disease or old age. She referred to herself as being older than even the angels.
SPN 0057

Eve created many monsters simply by touch.

  • Invulnerability - Conventional weapons and most mystic ones did not have any effect on Eve. The only known thing that could kill her was Phoenix ash, either by ingestion, being injected with it, or being shot with shotgun shells filled with the ashes.
  • Flight - Once she took her vessel, she rose from Purgatory.
  • Possession - In order to manifest on Earth, Eve required the use a vessel, and that vessel had to be a virgin girl.
EveandDean 6x19

Eve turning Dean.

  • Biokinesis - She was able to create new species by mixing the other monster species. Eve, upon possessing her vessel, was also able to greatly alter her vessel's physical functions. The most notable traits were when her womb was altered to reproduce several hundreds of monster eggs. The other alteration was when even dead, monsters were linked to her cerebral cortex & could feel everything she felt, even if it was a small tingle.
    • Conversion - She could turn humans into whatever kind of monster she desired, through physical contact, a bite, a kiss, or even a gentle touch. She apparently needed to perfect this ability when attempting to produce a new kind of monster, seeing as how a number of her creations died prematurely before she eventually succeeded in creating "the perfect monster." She dismissed these failures as "beta tests."[2]
    • Monster Birthing - As the Mother of All monsters, she can also give birth to them. This was seen during Crowley's autopsy of the deceased body, in which he found hundreds, if not thousands, of monster eggs in her womb.
  • Regeneration - When she rose from Purgatory, Eve's arms and legs were covered in severe burns, however she later reappeared completely restored.
  • Super Strength - Her strength was far superior to humans, many earthly supernatural creatures and even regular angels and seraphim. She was confident enough to claim that she would take care of the demon Crowley if she was to find him. Humans were no threat to her in terms of bodily force. This was shown when she ripped a lock and handles from a door.  
  • Super Speed - She could move at undetectable speeds for a human being, allowing her to reappear in different locations at will. She displayed this by instantly running behind Dean while having been talking to him face to face less than a second before and when she appeared out of nowhere behind a truck driver.
  • Shapeshifting - At one point, she modified her vessel's appearance to look and sound like Mary Winchester. Her shapeshifting was advanced to a degree seen only on few other creatures—the Alpha Shapeshifter, the Leviathans, and the Archangels.
  • Telepathy - She was psychically linked to all monsters, allowing her to know what they do and speak to them through their minds and could communicate with her children even while imprisoned in Purgatory. According to her, she was aware of the hunters' arrival and intent to kill her before they met, and perceived Crowley torturing her children as though she were his victim instead. She could also read a human's mind, as she was capable of shapeshifting into Sam and Dean's mother despite never having seen her, and knew that she died to protect them.[2]
    • Compulsion - Using her mental link to her children, Eve could control the various monster lines and instill bloodlust in them, even over great distances including through dimensions as well, as seen when she compelled her many children even the more benevolent ones like Lenore to attack and turn as many humans as they could. She was residing in Purgatory at the time.
  • Super Senses - She possessed heightened senses. She managed to realize Dean and Sam were using Phoenix ashes by simply smelling the barrels of their shotguns.
  • Angelic Power Negation - Due to her advanced age and knowledge, Eve was able to block angels from accessing their powers by 'unplugging' them as shown when she negated Castiel's abilities through her mere presence. Her overall knowledge over angels was extensive. She shares this ability with the Leviathans, though unlike them she is capable of negating angels' physical abilities as well, rendering them as weak and vulnerable as humans.
  • Supernatural Concealment - Eve was able to conceal her presence from the watch of Castiel and any other angel. The protagonists had to rely on the willing testimony of a monster ally to know her whereabouts. Like Angelic Power Negation, this is an ability Eve shares with the Leviathans.
