Novel Kiyomi • • Indepth Look • • Manga Kiyomi
~ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ~
Kiyomi is a kind, homely person, who is thoughtful, practical and understanding. She obviously loves her husband Toshiaki very much, and plans a special surprise for their one year anniversary. Unfortunately however, she is disappointed to find out that her husband’s work commitments are, yet again, taking precedence over everything else; including their relationship.

Disheartened, she makes the trip home – alone – ultimately leading to her death.   After all, on the way home she is rendered unconscious, crashing into the back of a partially loaded truck. After that, she's taken to hospital where she is declared brain dead, and with that diagnosis in mind, the doctors seek permission to accept her request to become an organ donor. This request however, as well as her not-so coincidental accident, just so happens to be a cleverly orchestrated gambit.

Her husband finds this out from various clues intentionally and unintentionally left for him. Then, while reading her diary, he realises that she herself was host to a dark seductive voice; that of Mitochondrial Eve.

Novel Toshiaki • • Indepth Look • • Manga Toshiaki
~ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ~
Toshiaki is married to two things: His wife Kiyomi, and his work. It is well established from his actions that his work life takes importance over many things. He is similarly obsessed with mitochondria and finding ways to better the world through the study and application of what the organelle has to offer.

What he doesn't realise is that those tender, beautiful moments with Kiyomi are only temporary. Devastated by the sudden loss of his wife, he is reluctant to face the reality of the situation, outright refusing to sign a permission waiver for his wife to become the organ donor she supposedly wanted to be. Wrestling with sheer grief and finality of it all, he refuses at first, to consider any possibility of his wife donating her organs. That is until however, he concocts a way to ‘bring her back’.

He finally agrees, allowing a doctor interested in helping a young girl, to perform the operation. In return, Toshiaki requests that he be given his wife’s liver. No reason is given to the surgeons who perform the operation, but in actuality, he had planned to cultivate her cells. These cells grow and take on a life of their own... Literally.  A little too late Toshiaki realises that he has awakened a life form bent on destroying all human kind.

Novel Mariko • • Indepth Look • • Manga Mariko
~ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ~
Mariko is a young girl suffering from, not only by renal failure, but a failed kidney transplant. We first see her at a pool, watching swimmers. When she nears the water however, she faints and falls into the deep blue pool, needing immediate rescue. As it turns out, she has put off her dialysis treatments for quite a while.

Mariko appears to be jaded with the whole process and comes across as unhappy and certainly not very talkative. Fortunetly, or unfortunately as Mariko finds out, a new kidney becomes available. The transplant is a success.

With a swift and uncomplicated recovery, much to the pleasant surprise of her father, Mariko is put in better spirits. She is able to play outside, smiles again, and enjoys time outside again. Short lived though, Mariko begins to sense someone, something coming; a scary change that she somehow notices from within.

Novel Asakura • • Indepth Look • • Manga Asakura
~ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ~
Having a brilliant mind and a kind personality, Asakura is well liked by her friend and fellow research assistant Toshiaki Nagamura. She works hard on her studies but often finds herself working on any project Toshiaki finds himself participating in. But one late afternoon, none the wiser, it all changes when Toshiaki's wife is in a fatal car accident. From there things begin to spiral downhill, and the hidden feelings she grapples with, does not help matters.

She is unwittingly taken over by Toshiaki's new experiment, which uses her as a conduit before dicarding her like rubbish. Once she's free, she dutifully follows Toshiaki to the nearest hospital where, she is told, a young girl is in grave danger. Arriving just in time to watch the girl get taken, her and Toshiaki split up. Unfortunately this means 'meeting back' is a little too late, as she arrives just in time to see Toshiaki quite literally sarcrafices himself for the greater good. Overcome with grief as he burns, she falls to her knees and weeps.

Yet all his efforts seem to be in vain until he brokers a deal with a man who will allow his wife's kidneys to be transplanted in exchange for her liver.

The operation goes well despite noting the organs are hot, but fails to see the danger ahead. Looking after Mariko as she heals, he thinks nothing of the nightmares and night terrors until her cell cultures and biopsies return strange results. Only after the plan is in motion does he really figure out whats going on.

[ + MINOR CHARACTERS + ]
 
Dr Yoshizumi's assistant - The inevitable self sacrificing hero who attempts to stop Eve from escaping the hospital. He starts off as simply curious about why Toshiaki wanted the liver, and why Mariko's results are strange, but soon bares witness to Eve's incredible power.
 
Azusa Odagiri - As a transplant co-ordinator, Odagiri is tasked with organising a transplant. She tests possible candidates and talks to the prospective donor's doctor. She is elementary to the transplant itself.
 
Mariko's Father - Happy that his daughter is cheerful, only days after the operation, he seems to have little clue as to what's happening when Mariko begins to have night terrors.
 
Kiyomi's Father - Only appears briefly after Kiyomi's death. He is understandably shocked and scared that he might lose his daughter, all the more horrible by the close proximity to his wife's death.
