- — Eva to Kyrie
Eva Ushiromiya (右代宮 絵羽 Ushiromiya Eba ) is the eldest daughter of the Ushiromiya family and the second child of Kinzo, ranked the third of all family members. Hostile towards her brother Krauss and takes a stance to confront him in every way possible, from issues of the fortune to the succession of the head of the family. Originally she would have lost her place in the register of the Ushiromiya family when she got married, but since she made her husband, who took her family name, be recognized, the whole story forcibly came to a halt.

Eva is sly and the only Ushiromiya sibling who appears to want to snatch up the headship from Krauss while Rudolf and Rosa seem to only want the gold. She holds a deep rivalry with Krauss since she was young and had been the smarter one who is more capable of being the head. However, because she was born a woman and after Krauss, she was told by both Kinzo and Krauss that she should focus on learning to be a good wife. That angered her even more and caused her to study harder to gain her father's approval. Since she was young, she has been looking down on Rosa and bullies her. Even in the games, she still makes snide remarks against Rosa and Maria. In Requiem of the Golden Witch, it is also stated that she is capable of knowing when Rudolf is lying. She is mean and is also constantly mocking Natsuhi and Shannon when she feels that George and Shannon are getting too close saying that Shannon is too low for George.
Eva has a own soft side that only her husband seems to know. She loves her family a lot and constantly worries about George's future. There are times when she gets worried that she has been using George as a way of getting revenge on Krauss who had a daughter not a son.
After the incident, she wanted to begin a life with Ange. But after Ange rejected her, she started to lose her mind and became abusive towards Ange which she regrets and starts to make many enemies. It is also said that after that incident she becomes unable to trust anyone.
According to Tetsuro Okonogi, Kinzo believed that Eva was more intelligent and competent than Krauss, and regretted the decision to make Krauss the next head. He further believes that the test of the epitaph was to indirectly name Eva as the next head of the Ushiromiya family.
Eva is a woman with fair skin and ginger hair tied up in a bun, held together with a purple hairpin. She has black eyes in the original sound novel, but has purple eyes in the anime and PS3 adaptation.
She is shown wearing a Black Ao Dai (Purple in the PS3 and Anime Adaptions) with golden one-winged eagles. She also wears two gloves, of which one is shorter than the other, which reveals the one-winged eagle tattooed on her arm. She also wears a pink bracelet, white pants and black shoes. She is usually seen holding something (frequently a hand fan).
Role In the GamesEdit
Found on the bed of a guest room inside the mansion, with a weapon resembling an ice-pick sticking out of her forehead.
Her corpse was found in the chapel. The direct cause of death is unknown, but it seems her stomach was cut open and her intestines pulled out after her death. On top of that, sweets and candies were stuffed into her stomach.
Everyone has a stomach filled with sweet dreams.
In this episode, Eva solves The Witch's Epitaph after the first twilight, rewarding her with the gold and the position of head of the Ushiromiya family. She attempts to keep this secret from the rest of the family, but is found out by Rosa. This leads to the birth of EVA-Beatrice, a witch who starts to murder the rest of the family in order to keep the gold all to herself. Eva winds up becoming the only survivor and returns from Rokkenjima safely, staying with her niece Ange.
Due to the mystery surrounding the Rokkenjima Incident, Eva is accused of being the culprit by the public despite the lack of plausible evidence, and eventually falls ill and dies.
Her corpse was found in the dining hall. About half of her head was destroyed. It's probably reasonable to assume that she was murdered with a powerful gun or something similar.
However, the witnesses don't believe she was killed with a gun...
