Eve never really enjoyed following the rules and is an extremely independent personality. This is not to say that she cannot study and be serious when she has to. Still, she loves to joke and rarely takes herself too seriously. She sees too many people as taking themselves too seriously. Eve has a bit of a Robin Hood personality with a distrust for authority in many cases. One area where she can be seen to be extremely serious is when she works on something.
Her one true love is with her sister who she will do almost anything for. She does know that they are both genetically engineered but considers Susan to be her sister. They have almost always done everything together and even though they have fought a bit, they have always been close. She does care about her adopted parents, who always treated her like she was their real child, even though she was a genetic experiment.
She really does not like killing without any need. She sees that too many people get themselves into situations which put them in deadly danger. As a result, she has developed a whole assortment of arrows to attempt to take down opponents without killing them. She does not really like guns and will not use any firearm unless she absolutely has to.
Even though she can dress up extremely well, she also likes a wide variety of outdoor activities including camping, hiking, horseback riding, and of course archery. It is one of the few places where she can really feel free. The breeze blowing in her hair and the idea that she does not have to live up to perfect fashion. She does enjoy being a model but she does not want to let it rule her life. She also will not let being a model let her become snooty and cannot stand that trait with other models.

When not in disguise, Eve Fletcher can only be called exquisite and it is clear why she is a model. Eve is tall for a woman at five foot, ten inches tall. She has flawless skin, a perfect figure, and is incredibly beautiful with or without makeup. Her skin is Caucasian but glows, not pale. Her hair, which she keeps slightly longer than her shoulders, is a golden blond which is curly but somehow transcends styles. Her eyes are a sapphire blue which appear to sparkle.
In her “Non-Super Heroine” identity, she normally wears the latest in fashions when in public. She wears very tastefully applied makeup not overdone. On her own, while in the wilderness especially, she dress much simpler with little in the way of makeup and jeans and t-shirts when weather permits and flannel when it is colder. As a result, only a few people recognize her when dressed down.
In her “Super Heroine” identity, she wears a dark green mask to hide the top half of her face although her hair remains free. Without the mask, virtually anyone might recognize who she is. She wears a armored form fitting body stocking designed with a special form of adaptive camouflage. On her back, she wears a large quiver of arrows. On each forearm, she wears an armored vambrace which holds four specially designed telescoping arrows each. Wears a set of dark boots that are made from similar armor material to the body suit. At one time, she wore set of additional armor over her body suit but has discarded wearing it.

Lady Bow’s History:
There have been many experiments in the development of super soldiers over the years with some being more successful than others. Still, virtually all experiments in this area are in adults, many of them on crippled soldiers looking for a new lease on life. Lady Bow’s experiment was quite different, she was designed in the test tube long before she was ever born. The lab worked out a formula they hoped would result in a faster, stronger, and tougher soldier.
Eve was their one unqualified success. As a result, she was given the name of “Eve” to represent the mother of a line super soldiers like “Eve” is the mother of mankind in myth. The vast majority of the embryos were failures with only a small minority even becoming normal. Her sister is one of those few normal children being born. Born almost exactly a year later, her sister Susan is in the higher limits of human but still not the super soldier which they were looking for.
It may have been due to a lack of success or may have been a politician discovering where the funds went but soon after Eve and her sister were born, the whole program was canceled. The children, who were basically just infants, were farmed out and adopted into various families. Some had government connections while others did not. Eve and Susan were extremely lucky in that they were adopted into the same home. As well, the couple knew about the program and were able to nurture her special gifts.
The attempt was made to raise her as close as possible to a normal child but that was simply not possible at times. Not quite beyond human limits, the little girl was still incredibly strong and she could do things that other kids simply could not. As well, she could get a deep scrape or cut and within just a short time would be completely healed. There were some down sides such as she had to eat almost twice what a girl her weight might have but never really gain wait. In a situation where life imitates the comic books, It became necessary that her adopted parents teach her to hide her gifts so that others around her would not be suspicious.
Her sister was much less of a problem, being quite a bit above average but not in the superhuman categories. In some areas, the two sisters were quite competitive such as in most academic areas with each being better in various areas. Both excelled in most of their studies and many of the children envied them, both in athletic and scholarly areas. They took many of the same programs including acrobatics and gymnastics. Eve was always better in sports such as field hockey and martial arts while her sister Susan preferred areas such as cheerleading and dance
It had been as an extremely young girl that Eve discovered archery and found out that she absolutely loved it. She excelled at it to a greater level than she did anything else, almost an absolute natural at it. She had a bit of training with pistols and rifles but never enjoyed them the same way. For the most part, she has never developed any skills in firearms although he natural prowess does make her an excellent shot. She began competing in archery tournament where she considered incredible. Her adopted parents used to joke that they used the DNA of Howard Hill, the famous bowman from the Robin Hood movie as a basis for her, although it is doubtful that this is really the case.
With her incredible grades, she could get a scholarship in a host of different universities and could have gotten several athletic scholarships as well. The military and several government agencies also wished to recruit her into their programs. In the end, she decided to go to an engineering university to learn both mechanical and electrical engineering.
It was during her time in the university that she first began to interest modeling agencies. Many go to universities to party more than learn anything. This was never what she was interested and studied incredibly hard. There was a fun and wild side of her but she always kept that within limits. Still, one day on a fluke she went with some other girls to sign up with a modeling agency. They were immediately caught up with her. At first, she had only the most minor shoots but they slowly grew. She did not let it stop her and she graduated with honors.
Growing up, she read of many heroes in comic books who used the bow instead of guns. Many of them used various types of trick arrows. She always had a driving ambition to do the right thing, to be a heroine. She started with a simple bow and arrow and showed to be incredibly effective. She took a name which was simple and went by the name of “Lady Bow.”
As time went on, with her mechanical engineering and other skills, she began to develop a whole host of specialty arrows for herself. The arrows allowed her to often take out opponents without killing. She never really liked killing when it was not necessary. She also created her own bow and designed an incredibly tough set of body armor.
