* {{Expy}}: Lessee here, beautiful with blonde hair and blue eyes, has a secret connection to the main villain who spends most of the game trolling her or trying to drive her crazy, paranoid and unsure of her past and what she is, a bit of a smartass, and has a unique genetic trait that gives her special powers. And the star of an RPG made by Squaresoft. Are we talking about Aya or [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife?]].



* {{Expy}}: Klamp bears striking similarities to Professor Hojo from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', which include creating monsters and assisting the BigBad [[ForScience in the name of science]].


* GreenEyes: When Eve-2 takes over Melissa's body, her eyes turn from brown to green. They stay this color from then on out.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Handguns}}: Aya prefers to use handguns over other firearms available to her for ease of use and low profile sake. Even her animations look like they are done with a pistol in hand. In the first game their high speed and good damage per hit makes them reliable main weapons. 2's are significantly weaker but always have reliable ammo. [[spoiler:Her lack of this in The 3rd Birthday might be a sublte form of foreshadowing.]]


She is the true PlayerCharacter of ''The 3rd Birthday''. When the SWAT team attacked St. Thomas Cathedral, Aya and all of the other attendees to the wedding were gunned down. In a desperate attempt to save her, Eve dived into Aya's dying body, and quickly killed the soldiers. However, in the process, she destroyed Aya's lingering soul. Eve, in the shock and confusion from what she had just unconsciously done (and the identity crisis of having bits of Aya's soul mix with her own), failed to return to her own body and fainted. When she awoke, she had completely lost her memories, and found herself in the care of Hyde Bohr, the head researcher for the CTI. Unknown to her, in the intense stress during the incident where she lost her memories, her already advanced cells made a huge evolutionary step, and her abandoned body decayed to create the sentient High Ones -- the natural predators to the Twisted.

Is dead. Aya keeps having visions and flashbacks of her as she pursues Eve, though. Is also [[spoiler:the BonusBoss]].

Aya's visions are due to having received a transplant from Maya. Aya had a defect in her right eye since birth, and received Maya's cornea as a transplant. Which is how Aya will later in life [[spoiler:acquire her mitochondrial powers]].

[[spoiler:Except this isn't Aya at all. It's Eve, from Parasite Eve 2, in Aya's body, the result of a failed EmergencyTransformation. As a result, she actually regains a mix of both her actual memories and Aya's, resulting in a ''huge'' TomatoSurprise.]]

TomatoSurprise.


* BiggerBad: Eve may be the main threat, but the Ultimate Being is the final one.


A mysterious, ancient evil that wants to reverse humanity's symbiotic relationship between the nucleus (banks of genetic information that dictate what cells grow where and when) and the mitochondria (organic power plants that fuel cellular activity). To this end, she takes over the body Kiyomi Nagashima, wife of mitochondrial expert Toshiaki Nagshima, and forces her to crash her car. Toshiaki cultures some of Kiyomi's liver cells, giving Eve a place to grow a body, and one of Kiyomi's kidneys is transplanted into fourteen year old girl Mariko Anzai, whom Eve mutates the womb of so it can give birth to the Ultimate Being. After obtaining some of Toshiaki's sperm and implanting it into Mariko, Eve dissolves, unable to keep up with the energy output needed to sustain her own body.

A second, unrelated Mitochondrial Eve (possibly, see ContinuitySnarl) takes over the body of New York opera singer Melissa Pearce in the ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' game with the same goal as her predecessor of creating the Ultimate Being. Eve-2 dissolves a solo performance crowd at Central Park into raw genetic material and allies with Melissa's former doctor, Hans Klamp, to procure sperm for her Ultimate Being. Aya Brea fights her several times around New York, but is unable to seriously stop her plans.

Chief researcher for the CTI and head of the Overdive Investigation Unit. A friendly mentor to Aya and the other people in his unit, he is devoted to finding a way to stop the Twisted. Like EVERY character in this game, he's not quite what he seems, though. Hyde is actually one of the most powerful High Ones -- a race evolved from Eve's remains that is dedicated to the eradication of the Twisted at all costs. He gathered and sub-consciously controls the other High Ones in the group.

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Zigzagged in the first game: her shots would miss if the target was too far away from her, but if she was close enough, she could always hit her targets even if they were moving in fast and erratic patterns. Played straight in the second game, she's a great shot, such that she can pick the wings off of mutant moths at range. Some flavor text in the MIST HQ also reveals she got 2nd place in the most recent MIST shooting competition, losing out only to Rupert Broderick. Then averted in the third game, where [[BadassDecay she didn't even place in the top ten at the CTI shooting contest]]. Guess her muscle memory was also affected by her amnesia. [[spoiler:And Eve Brea is much less skilled with guns than Aya...]]
