The main villainess of the series, Mitochondria Eve is a fictional character who pays homage to the African woman, or more likely a group of African women, whose mitochondria genome was descended to all human beings today. In the game, Mitochondria Eves are women who have been taken over by the consciousness of the mitochondria, or “energy factories”, in their cells. Although their powers differ, all Eves have the ability to affect the mitochondria of other living animals to produce excessive adenosine triphosphate, resulting in spontaneous combustion.
