Evennia "Evie" Leven was born the oldest of three, the daughter of a freighter pilot and an engineer on the planet of Kuat. She had a more or less happy childhood, spending a lot of time in space around the Core Worlds with her mother (and later, her younger brother and sister as well) as she'd make cargo runs, while her father worked for the Seinar Fleet Systems factory on the planet.
Evie was a typical tomboy, not afraid to get her hands dirty and often doing so once she was able to grasp the basics of mechanical work, taking to serving as an unpaid assistant on her mother's freighter whenever she was allowed. She wasn't a stranger to a fight, either -- having to step in and try to defend her younger sister from people they would occasionally run into at spaceports.
On the plus side? She never got into much trouble with the law as a result. On the minus side? It was mainly because she wasn't really /good/ with her fists, or even really strong enough to back it up. The girl certainly had guts, though. Due to spending a majority of her time in space, her education was mainly handled via a protocol droid the family owned, with plenty of technical education on the important aspects of spaceflight thrown in by a mother who saw a future heir to her work.
While Evie took to flight controls like a fish to water, it was her father's career path that would initially attract her, and in her teenage years -- with the help of her learned skills and her father's connections -- she was given a job working as a testing pilot, getting to work putting new crafts through their paces while being able to learn more about how they work, as well as getting the opportunity to learn more about how the various fighters were made. It looked like her future was set, until First Order returned and began seizing the galaxy by force. History -- and the chance to make a lasting mark in it -- inspired her to enlist and jump back in the pilot's seat where she belonged.
Evie's the kind of girl who tries -- but doesn't always succeed -- to be an eternal optimist. She feels most at home when she's aboard a starship, with an ego a lightyear wide and frankly? The skills to back it up. On the ground, she's far more... well... grounded, and a little skittish. She does a decent job for a once-civilian when on-duty, putting her mission first and personal feelings last... but she jealously values her off-duty time, as well, and this adrenaline junkie knows how to have fun.

Imperial History The Leven family has a long history with the organization that would go on to become the First Order, having supported the Republic, the Empire, and now the Order from their work with Sienar Fleet Systems. Want to know a member of her family from the old days? Let me know!
Sienar Brat Those family connections again! Evie and numerous members of her family have worked for Sienar Fleet Systems, and some of them probably are or have been fairly high-level. Those who know a good deal about the company could certainly recognize her last name.
Kuat When she lived on Kuat as a teenager, Evie was the kind of girl who made an impression on people -- she was loud, talented, and a grade-a showoff. Knowing her from those days is entirely possible.
First Order Flight Instructor With the blessing of the Supreme Leader himself, Evie's taken upon the role of flight instructor for the First Order's Vanguard, making herself available to instruct any members of the Order in the finer points of flight.
