Character Introduction

First Noted In: Season 1, Episode 1

Since 2004 Myfanwy has had transdermal neural transmission powers which allow her to lethally affect people’s nerves, muscles, perhaps even their brain. However, recently, she has found herself with her mind wiped of all personal memories. Said act was likely done by what is called a vulture, someone who hunts people like Myfanwy who are categorized as those with EVAs (Extreme Variant Abilities).

Thus leading her to have to get reacquainted with her co-workers, part-time lovers, and herself. A dangerous task for, previous to her mind being wiped, she left warnings and information which makes it seem Myfanwy can’t trust anyone. Even those who seem like they have good intentions.

Additional Information About Myfanwy

  • Takes Propranolol Hydrochloride, which is blood pressure medication, but also works for migraines and tremors (per Healthline). This is to help control her powers, and possible anxiety.
