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.
The head of the Checquy, Linda is 2nd only to home secretary Jennifer Birch, who is the middle person between the Checquy and the British Government. But, outside of her role as a leader, not much is known about Linda. Well, outside of her, despite heading over EVAs, not seemingly being one herself.
Additional Information About Linda
Despite initially seeming like she was without powers, in S1E5 it is revealed she has some form of sonic powers. The kind which, over quite a radius, can disable, possibly even kill, people.
Linda was rescued, at the age of 6, after being kidnapped by the KGB by Sir Henry Wattleman – the founder of the Checquy.
In the hierarchy of the Checquy, he is 2nd in command, but despite having a position which should make him Linda’s right-hand man, he isn’t always forthcoming or cooperative with her. Maybe because he is screwing Home Secretary Birch, giving him an amount of power Linda will never have? Perhaps it is because, unlike her, he is an EVA which can change the atmosphere and either coerce the truth or knock people out? Either way, while clearly operating under the same goal as Linda, his methods are different, and he has a few selfish desires.
Additional Information About Conrad
Is fond of Myfanwy, and so he covers for her even when it isn’t necessary.
A member of the Lugats, he seems to be high enough on the totem pole to be the Checquy contact but not high enough for the Checquy, specifically Conrad, to respect him. At least if anything serious comes up that requires a decision maker and not operations staff.
An agent from the American equivalent of the Checquy, her main reason for being in the UK is strictly to learn what happened to her ex named Marcus. Someone who has been gone 2 years but, in the events which come minutes or hours before the series began, was killed.
Additional Information About Monia

Her father was a functioning alcoholic, who favored Scotch, and mom plainly was just an alcoholic.

Often paired with Eliza, he is another member of the Gestalt quadruplets. One who, like Eliza, isn’t fond of Myfanwy and yet often finds himself coerced by Linda to do something for her. At least, nowadays.
Alex is the third of four members of the Gestalt and the one who has an on-again and off-again thing with Myfanwy. However, with them only being on when she is intoxicated, it makes their relationship difficult. Both before Myfanwy’s mind wipe and after.
As for Teddy? He is Alex’s twin who is a bit more sober of the two when it comes to the effect Myfanwy has. Though, in general, while each member of Gestalt is rather similar, one would submit he is the most serious of the four.
Nazim, as noted in his image above, is the one who wiped Myfanwy’s memories. Now, as for why? That isn’t uncovered. All we know is Linda wanted to trade Myfanwy for Nazim, likely since he is willing and able to tap into his powers on will, unlike Myfanwy. Now, as for when he met Myfanwy to wipe her mind, much less how did he wipe it just to the point of forgetting her whole history, not everything imaginable, is unexplained.
Additional Information About Nazim
Despite his youth, he’s 16, and no mentioned training, Nazim has full control over his powers and is able to wipe memories with precision.
Formerly, Dr. Bristol worked at Glengrove House as one of the psychologists. He was specifically chosen for Myfanwy as a means to try to tap into her powers, which the Checquy were quite interested in. However, things went bad for with Myfanwy developed a crush on Dr. Bristol, he was advised to utilize it so she could master his powers, and they accidentally ended up having an affair.

Additional Information About Sophia
The Gestalts powers perhaps are one of the best examples of what it means to be EVA in a practical sense. As explained by Linda, the powers we see should be at the extremes of what people could be capable of. So, with them having a hive mind, meaning what one sees, hears, feels, and perhaps knows, is mutually shared, it expands on the twin theory of being able to share senses with your sibling.
Not all EVAs manifest their powers as kids or teens. Some don’t learn of their powers until their 20s or 30s.
