Eevee Gradle

Eevee’s real first name is Yvette Gradle but ever since she was a little girl she had been know to everyone simply as Eevee. Eevee and her twin sister Martha, “Marty” Gradle were born to Mya Hoves and Benji Gradle. The couple were not married at the time and the girls spent their early days living in their mother’s house with their uncles Junior and Dougie and grandparents Blair and Freddie.

But after an intervention by their other grandmother, Benji’s mum Minissa their parents finally took that next step and the whole family somehow got cramped in a small house the Gradle’s used to live back then.

Eevee was not the best student while in school. It was hard to find the peace to study, or do anything in a house that cramped full of people. What Eevee was good at were martial arts, her parents enrolled both her and her sister into martial arts classes and the girls just excelled there.

Eventually the family moved to a bigger home, one know popularly referred to as the Gradle mansion. Right before the move however Eevee’s grandparents divorced and Minissa Gradle was left alone while Eevee, Marty, their parents and their two aunts Melody and Shirley all went to a new and bigger house.

While in high school Eevee also tried to learn to play all the different instruments, since their grandfather Riam Gradle was a mayor rock star it was expected that the girls would show some musical potential. Eevee liked drums the most but she abandoned her learning fast when her brother Ollie was born and he became grandpa Riam’s new favorite.

Eevee also tried to learn to cook, first from her grandmother then from her mum. It was safe to say it was a disaster, she managed to set the kitchen on fire, not once but twice and she gave up altogether.

Upon graduating from school Eevee wanted nothing more than to be a cop, like her mum and most of that side of her family. She was amazed by her grandmother Blair who was this awesome spy, and helped solve cases and catch bad guys with about every law enforcement agency that is. Her parents however did not support her in this.

Desperate yet determined Eevee decided to prove to them and everyone else how capable she was and how she would stop at nothing to achieve her dreams. And so Eevee launched an investigation of her own and it lead her to a secret criminal organization, operating right there from their city, lead by the convicted criminal Mortimer Goth.

Eevee’s plan was always to find out as much as she could about them, collect the evidence and run to the police, proving she was detective material once and for all. However unexpectedly Eevee developed a bond with this gang of dangerous criminals and she had even warned about a raid she knew her mother was planning on an abandoned warehouse they would often meet. This got her a lot of respect and she moved forward in the organization.

However when Mortimer was forced to retire by the horrible, blood thirsty Susannah Ramsay Eevee found herself a little over her head. She wasn’t giving up and she is always ready to confront her new boss which of course makes her gang members respect her but Susannah not so much. She got pushed to the sidelines of the operation and started running cons with Mortimer Goth as her mentor.

She moved out of her parents house because she didn’t want to bring attention to what she was doing and thanks to her grandfather’s money got a little place of her own. She learned a lot from Mortimer and enjoyed the work they were doing and somehow on the way she even fell in love with him… She had shared this with no one, no one but her sister Marty of course.

Things had gotten rather intense between them but after she realized Mortimer never meant to take their relationship seriously, and that she would never be the only woman in his life she broke up with him. As a parting gift Mortimer gave her a little foal named Dancer.With their bond being shattered Eevee had no choice but to return back to Susannah Ramsay as one of the henchman in her organization.

Eevee’s best friend trough out her whole life was Laquita, “Lucky” Hoves. The three of them, Eevee, Marty and Lucky have hung out since school, Marty even ended up dating and eventually marrying Lucky’s little half-brother Zeke. But now, after witnessing Susannah murder Lucky’s father and just running away Eevee can barely face her once best friend…

For reasons unknown even to Eevee herself she had still not gone to the police as she had planned all those years ago, maybe she is in to deep… And maybe she just doesn’t think revealing who she was and what she had been doing all this years to her family and everyone she knows is worth the joy of proving herself capable to them…

Her parents did got suspicious after Jesse Hoves’s death and they sent her aunt Melodie to live with her for a while. It didn’t go really well, the pair has nothing in common but a love for detective novels. Now however after she had adopted a child her aunt Melodie would soon be out of her life once and again leaving Eevee alone with her little dancer and Chloe, the little puppy she adopted from Phoibe Santoro, and her troubled conscience…

Eevee likes mediation, movies, and cares about saving the planet. She is ranked pretty high in the neighborhood chess tournament.
