"What is it you want?"
Phil Coulson and Eva Belyakov[src]

Eva Belyakov (Russian: Ева Белякова) was an Inhuman who went rogue after stealing an assortment of Terrigen Crystals, which she used to trigger the Terrigenesis of her daughter Katya. Together, the pair caused mayhem in Bahrain before being crossed off by S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Melinda May.


Early Life

Undergoing Terrigenesis

Eva Belyakov was sought out and chosen for Terrigenesis and had Jiaying as her guide. After going through the Terrigen Mist, Belyakov developed superhuman strength. She was hit by a car in her native Russia; the car was completely damaged, but Belyakov emerged unharmed. However, this incident brought her to the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. who sought to put her on its Index.[1]

Raising a Daughter

Eva later gave birth to a daughter named Katya, and attempted to have her go through the Terrigenesis as well. However, due to Jiaying sensing something sinister within Katya, she was denied the chance. Outraged, Eva stole a mass of Terrigen Crystals and used them to put Katya through Terrigenesis, despite not having gone through the mental preparation that most Inhumans did.

When Katya emerged from her cocoon, she had developed the power to feel as well as manipulate the sensory nerves of other people; however, Katya soon found that she had no way of shutting off the feelings, and as a result, she began to suffer from experiencing more negative sensations such as pain.

Desperate to sustain her daughter but unwilling to seek out Jiaying's help, Eva instead went on a killing spree, supplying Katya with victims whose senses she could manipulate.[1]

Battle in Bahrain

Belyakov speaking with Agent Phil Coulson

"My group specializes in helping people like you, who have gifts."
"And why should I trust you?"
"Because I could take you somewhere safe. I know you've been on the run, but S.H.I.E.L.D. can protect you. You're not alone in all of this."
Phil Coulson and Eva Belyakov[src]

Their activities eventually attracted the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D., who pursued Eva and Katya to Bahrain. The mother-daughter pair took a number of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives hostage, forcing Agent Melinda May to venture in alone to terminate Eva. As Katya watched from her hiding spot, Eva battled May for a time, before May impaled Eva through the abdomen with the broken pole of a lamp. Eva subsequently died of her injury, and Katya was shot dead by May moments later.[1]


Inhuman Tale

"Our people know too well what a woman will do for her daughter."
Jiaying to Skye[src]

Years later, Jiaying relayed the tragedy of the Belyakovs to her own daughter, Skye, who then told Melinda May herself, giving the agent some closure regarding the traumatic experience.[1]
