Evelyn was a retired explorer and an old colleague of Cassandra Morgan. While she only appeared for a moment in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, she played an important part in both Sam and Nathan Drake's life.

Biography

Background

In her youth, Evelyn was a celebrated historian, featured on magazines and having a vast collection of artifacts and relics. In her old age, she had a strained relationship with her son Edmund. She often sent alimony to his family to try to rekindle a relationship with him despite his protest. One of the main reasons Edmund was angry with her was that she didn't show up to her husband's funeral.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (2016)

Evelyn bought Cassandra's journals in an auction after Cassandra died. Later, Samuel and Nathan Morgan broke into her house hoping to find their mother's things, sneaking through her mansion. After the two brothers found what they were looking for, Evelyn appeared and held them at gunpoint, and told them that she had already called the police.

Sam covered Nathan to protect him and tried to bargain with the old lady. He offered to stay if Nathan would be allowed to leave. Sam accidentally revealed that they were in fact Cassandra's sons, and this Evelyn to lower her gun. After telling the boys about their mother and giving their mother's journal to Nathan, the police arrived outside.

Evelyn promised to deal with the police, but fell unconscious before she could even leave the room. The boys then escaped the mansion and the police.

Trivia

  • Evelyn briefly wielded a Jackal — this is the first and only time it's seen in singleplayer.
  • Evelyn appears to be an homage to Lara Croft, the titular character of the Tomb Raider franchise.
  • Similar to Cassie Drake, Evelyn was originally going to be a male. When the game director Neil Druckmann introduced the character to the lead character concept artist at Naughty Dog, she asked him "what if it was a woman?", the team then changed Evelyn's gender as that wouldn't "affect or change anything".[1]
