Evankhell (에반켈, Ebankel) is a High Ranker and the former Ruler of the Second Floor. As an Ancient who uses the fire element, she is referred to as 'The Infernal Evankhell'.
Appearance and Personality
All that is known about her is that she is very tall and is high in the rankings; she holds the 60th place in the rankings, which is very influential, enough to scare Evan Edrok.
She is supposedly very strict, as Yu Han Sung was worried by the thought of Evankhell finding out about all of the trouble on the Second Floor. According to Hachuling, she is said to have extremely high Shinsoo Resistance. According to Yu Han Sung, he has always seen Lero-Ro together with Evankhell. She seems to act recklessly without thinking, like Yuri Zahard.
Not much has been revealed concerning Evankhell, except that she killed the former Ruler who belonged to a Great Family and took ownership of the Second Floor. As she doesn't belong to a Great Family, she is not part of the Ruling Class and it is unknown why she has agreed to the complex testing system on the Second Floor.
Evankhell unexpectedly appeared on her floor, just before Yu Han Sung was about to be executed for his role in fabricating the apparent demise of Twenty-Fifth Baam several years ago. Intimidatingly telling Zahard's messenger to piss off or die, Evankhell's attention was directed to Kallavan's subordinates. Intrigued by their ability to withstand her attacks, Evankhell got ready to assault them using her ancient power when the Second Floor Guardian suddenly appeared and told her and Yu Han Sung that they were fired from their Second Floor positions before warping them away.
After Evankhell and Yu Hansung got teleported by the Second Floor Guardian, they notice they are at Karaka's Heart. After a while they encounter one of Karaka's minion, Death Bird, who was worried there may have been intruders coming in the special dimension holding Karaka's Heart. Death Bird was glad that Evankhell was Yu Hansung's companion, and then introduces itself as a shadow that is ordered to kill any intruders there. Evankhell and Yu Hansung are the first people to enter the magical space created by Karaka's Armor, which cuts off from the outside so no one can enter except Karaka and the administrators. Evankhell told Death Bird she was not interested in Karaka's Heart and she just wanted to know why they got sent there. She assumes maybe something happened to Karaka. Then a warp gate opens displaying Zahard's Army going to the Last Station, and Death Bird says it opens whenever Karaka's in danger. Evankhell now knows why the Second Floor Guardian sent them there and quickly moved along with Karaka's Minions.
After arriving at the Last Station she was immediately attacked by a half-moon blade weapon from a Ranker, but she effortlessly stopped the attack with just two fingers and then obliterates his weapon.
Since Kay's weapon broke, he reinforced his hands with shinsoo and proceeds to charge at Evankhell, but then she sent Kay flying with a flick of her wrist and burned Kay's servant saying they're not worthy to be on the same battlefield against her. Causing havoc in the last station, Elpathion and Sharon along with other rankers nearby, appeared before her, telling her to stop. That didn't convince Evankhell, so it led to a fight between Evankhell and the rankers of Zahard's Army. During the fight, Sharon managed to break Evankhell's weapon with Evankhell even complimenting Sharon that she can pack a punch. In the middle of the fight, Evankhell remembers a past where she first met Yu Han Sung, asking him what is he afraid of, and in response, he said he fears the rage within him fading away. Evankhell then releases a partial fraction of her ancient power, and easily melting/killing rankers and pushing back Elpathion and Sharon with Elpathion saying her power is unstoppable just like a natural disaster.
As Evankhell is burning the army, she says it is about time for the Dangerous One to step in. Elliot said he was trying to stay out of the battle but Evankhell was causing way too much disturbance and says he'll kill Evankhell if she caused any more trouble. The appearance of the 44th Ruler made all members of the army step away to let him handle Evankhell because Elpathion said he isn't the kind of person to care about friendly-fire anyways.
Evankhell lets her flame out and is ready to fight back saying it is not time for her to leave yet. The shockwaves from both Ruler's clash was so strong, it was difficult for even Elpathion to contain it from spreading. Then suddenly, Kallavan appeared out of nowhere and surprise everyone on the battlefield including Evankhell. When Kallavan appeared, Evankhell said they now have one more threat to deal with.
As Kallavan is about to charge at Baam, Evankhell quickly appeared in front of Kallavan with a burst of flame. Kallavan asked about her fight with the other Ruler and she said they weren't really fighting to kill each other. Kallavan was confused with Evankhell's intention of helping some random regulars as a Top 100 Ranker. Evankhell says she wasn't interested at the Regular at first until she notices a minor wound that was inflicted by Baam's strongest attack. Evankhell now understands why Yu Hansung has such high hope for Baam and imagines how much stronger he'll be after more training.
Evankhell tells Kallavan to stop, but Kallavan insists to kill Baam. Evankhell acknowledges Kallavan for being strong but thinks he cannot handle herself, Ha Yuri Zahard and Karaka together. Kallavan decided to charge head-on, which shocked Evankhell and yelled if he was out of his mind. Evankhell praises Kallavan saying he really is tough and prepares her Death Sentence attack which was enough to cause Kallavan to scream in pain until he breaks free using Atomic Explosion. The explosion shocked everybody, but Baam was able to escape in time by teleport with the help of Yu Hansung, Ship Leesoo, and other rankers.
Afterwards, Evankhell finishes off the remaining army and retreats to the Last Station. While she was going to the Last Station, she talked with Yu Hansung, and he said Evankhell seems to be 'Enthusiastic'. Evankhell said Baam got her interested and wants to train him as her student. Evankhell finally meets Baam, and she said he looks droopy like a jellyfish in warm shinsoo. She said Baam is different from the other irregulars who are monsters like Urek Mazino. Evankhell introduces herself to Baam and said she noticed Baam's usage of the orb. She tells Baam to be her student so he can become stronger and get revenge of Kallavan. In exchange, Baam will have to go through hell for a few years. After Baam made he decision, he asks Evankhell to be his master so he can hunt down Kallavan.
Right after the battle at the Last Station, Evankhell followed Karaka and White to Madoraco's ghost ship. During the meeting, Karaka did all the talking and Evankell sat around yawning. Evankhell goes back to Baam and begins to train him. She showed Baam a list of 'Battlefields' written around her Pocket, and says she ordered those battlefields of the level of difficulty. For each level Baam completes, Evankhell says she'll teach Baam something at that level. Evankhell restricts Baam's usage of Black March and his Thorn in order to train his basic skills. Evankhell wanted to confirm again if Baam is ready for the brutal training. Which Baam then agrees to do it, and their training begins.
Evankhell along with Yu Han Sung was inside a high-speed warship heading to where Baam is. She and Hansung then encounter a mysterious man and woman claiming they would stop their path.
The man introduces himself as an Elder of FUG and is here to stop Evankhell and her companion from any more recklessness. The Elder points his bow and arrow and fires it saying it would point to her path of destiny.
When Evankhell uses her flame and blasts it at the FUG Elder, he easily pierced through the flames with the arrow he shot. The arrow would keep going in a circle and Yu Han Sung noted they are pointing a path. The Elder leaves both Evankhell and Yu Han Sung trapped between the arrows to go to the cage and kill the Slayer Candidate and bring down Baylord Yama to elect a new Slayer. As the Elder is leaving, he tells Evankhell she isn't the only one with the powers of the Ancient.
Both Evankhell and Yu Han Sung would return to their original location no matter which way they go because of the Elder's arrows which were redirecting them. The clueless Evankhell decided to just try and use her 'Special' flames to burn shinsoo itself. She explains the Yeon Family received two types of flames. A flame capable of burning anything and a flame capable of saving anything, they are called Primeval Flames.
Yu Han Sung noted the Elder used a path which an arrow pointed to and told Evankhell to burn all the paths so eventually there would be a path that will point in a straight line right to where the Elder went. After finding the path the Elder used, Evanhell burned the other paths and followed the straight path the Elder used.
After arriving at the cage, the woman who was with the Elder was surprised and confused to see them and she thought she blocked all other paths leading to the cage. Evankhell then leaves Yu Han Sung to deal with the Witch to go find the Elder. While searching for the Elder, Evankhell notices a spear.
Evankhell tried to call Baam through the use of the Pocket wasn't able to get an answer and instead, she called Khun Aguero Agnis. Evankhell asks Khun to tell her the coordinates of the Elder so she can hit the Elder with the Ancient Spear. After a quick moment, Khun quickly found of coordinates and told Evankhell to do it. The throw was successful and pierced through the Elder's waist. After the Elder was down, she immediately went over to where the fight is. Yama was surprised to see Evankhell, then the Elder unleashes his Ancient powers to try to take out both Evankhell and Yama.
A giant tree-like attack appears from the power of the Elder's Ancient. The attack was as large as the entire cage itself. Although Evankhell and Yama blocked the attack, the cage was damaged, and the Elder was preparing another attack again. Evankhell unleashes her Ancient powers as well to deal with the Ancient while she told Yama to deal with the Elder. During the battle, the Elder used an ability to send Yama to another location, Evankhell was shocked to see Yama disappeared instantly.
After the battle with the Elder, Evankhell asked where did Khel Hellam send Yama and also wonders why the Elder kept mentioning about a 'Battlefield' somewhere. The Elder then offered his help to send Baam and his companions to the battlefield, Evankhell seemed suspicious the Elder's offer. Baam decided to go to the Wall of Peaceful Coexistence with the Elder's help, and everyone went together to where Kallavan is while Evankhell goes with the Canines to save Yama.
After appearing, Yama was seen beaten down against the 5th Army Corp Commander, Lo Po Bia Yasratcha. The plan to send the Canines to save Yama backfired because Yasratcha was able to mind-control the Canine race. Evankhell wanted to attack Yasratcha directly but the commander sent the Canine people in front of him so Evankhell had to kill the Canines in order to attack Yasratcha.
Yama was blocked off by his own Canine people and had to kill them if he wanted to attack Yasratcha, however, Evankhell came up with an idea. Evankhell made her orb burned brightly to temporarily blind the Canine so Yama has an opening to attack Yasratcha directly. Yama then went for the commander, both of them collided but Yama was immediately heavily injured. Yama said he was at his limit. The rest of the 5th Army Corp arrived to assist its commander.
The 5th Army Corp received order from HQ to retreat after the completion of the mission but before they leave, Yasratcha ordered the Canine race to kill each other and had Canzon to blast himself on the head ultimately killing himself. Evankhell had to hold Yama back from him doing anything rash. Evankhell was disgusted by the commander's cowardly actions.
After witnessing over half the Canine people wiped out, Evankhell never imagined anything like that could happen and said Zahard is very powerful to be able to play around with someone like Khel Hellam, a FUG Elder.
After a while, Evankhell noticed Baam disappeared in the middle of the night and immediately called Yama to say Baam went to fight a Ranker at the Ranker Administration Office. Evankhell later tells Yama that Baam went to The Nest. After Baam arrives at the Nest, the Army was suddenly ambushed from both sides with Evankhell appearing on the right side of the pincer attack.
Evankhell, seeing no opening in the second wall, attempts to attack it but was thwarted by the Fourth Corps, with Elpathion stating that this time the whole squad is on full defensive mode and with his Lighthouses combined with defense ships, even Evankhell won't be able to break through alone but Evankhell just laughed at him for believing his threats could scare her and battled them. As she fought against the Corps, Evankhell saw Lo Po Bia Dokoko pressuring Doom and Paul and was about to help them when she was challenged by Lo Po Bia Didiano, who mocked her for losing her post as Ruler and ranking among the top 100 High Rankers, much to her outrage, especially since Didiano was only an Advanced Ranker and still had the nerve to challenge her a High Ranker.
Evankhell is a very powerful High Ranker. She is not scared of members of Zahard's Army. The force of 2 High Rankers and 30 Rankers didn't intimidate her. She wanted to fight Kallavan, the Commander of 4th Army Corp, instead of his servants. Evankhell proved capable of easily handling the might of the 4th Army Corp stationed in the Last Station, with Elpathion describing her power as being like a natural disaster, while using just a partial release of her ancient power since using more might disturb and then involve the administrator of the floor and afterwards was able to easily block attacks from Kallavan using his Essence of Bravery to the fullest (although being heavily injured from the fight with Jinsung Ha and the warp) and then injure him with her attacks, eventually overpowering him long enough to flee.
Ancient Power Evankhell has ancient power in form of flames. It manifests as fiery Ganesha. She may be a descendant of Native One.
Evankhell possess a Shinsoo Quality of "Shinsoo Orb", which is a rare skill. Apparently she is the only High Ranker who can use "Blazing Orb".
Rare Orb - Inferno (에반켈의 레어 오브 인페르노, Ebankel-ui Leeo Obeu Inpeleuno): Evankhell's shinsoo manipulation creates a massive Orb of fire. The heat that radiates from it can melt nearly anything within a large radius, including low level Rankers and even large warships.
Inferno - Flaming Ecstasy (인페르노 - 불의 환희, Inpereuno - Burui Hwanhui): The Orb shoots flame in many directions, creating a force strong enough to easily break through Rankers attacks and fill nearby area with flames.
Inferno - Festival of Flames (인페르노 - 불의 축제, Inpereuno - Burui Chukje): This technique makes the Orb bigger. Dark red flames circulate around the Orb and fill nearby area, creating fiery cyclone beneath.
Inferno Splash Damage Skill - Wailing Flames (인페르노 광역기 - 불의 함성, Inpeleuno Gwang-yeoggi Burui Hamseong): This is powerful Orb technique. Evankhell used it after partial release of her ancient power. The Orb glows more white from heat and blazes several huge streams of fire. These flames can burn Rankers and even High Ranker's Lighthouses can't contain them.
Rare Orb - Death Sentence (레어 오브 사형집행, Leeo Obeu Sahyeongjibhaeng): Evankhell gathers a large amount of fire shinsoo and aims it at the opponent, attacking them with a large beam of fire. This is one of Evankhell's stronger attack and she used this against Kallavan causing him to scream in pain. Kallavan had to use one of his strongest technique in order to break free from this attack. Kallavan's response along with this technique's name implies this attack is extremely dangerous.
AOE - Flower of Flames (광역기 불의 꽃, gwang-yeoggi bul-ui kkoch): Evankhell blasts flames out of her hands which appears like petals and thorns.
Rare Orb - Primeval Flame (레어 오브 근원의 불꽃, geun-won-ui bulkkoch): Evankhell's orb produce a special flame that can burn everything, including shinsoo.
Yu Han Sung: Yu Hansung and Evankhell first met in the middle of a skirmish. When Evankhell was on the verge of killing Hansung, she noted that he did not appear to be afraid. Curious about this due to the frightened appearance of her previous victims, Evankhell questioned what Hansung feared. Hansung responded that he, unlike other rankers, had no delusions of eternal life, so he instead feared the death of his passion for his goals. This answer appealed to Evankhell's ideology, and the two have since had long-standing companionship that leads them to work together on the 2nd Floor.
Twenty-Fifth Baam: Evankhell notices Baam during the Last Station fight. After seeing the damage that Baam, a D-Rank at the time, had made to one of the Squadron Commanders of Zahard's Army and that he is an Orb user, she decided to offer herself to pupil Baam, offering to make him strong enough to avenge his master. They have been travelling together for the past 2 years.
Kallavan: On their first encounter, Evankhell immediately sees him as a dangerous threat and acknowledges Kallavan's strength. Evankhell also said he is tough when he tanked hers, Yuri's and Karaka's attack.
Ha Jinsung: Although whatever relationship they have remains unknown, Evankhell knew of Ha Jinsung and appeared to hold him in a high regard, as she approved of his views of Baam after seeing him wound Kallavan and openly stated she expected him to be right with his apprentice.
Red Sword: Evankhell has a red sword that can emit flame. This sword was destroyed after Ari Bright Sharon targeted her sword handle with Fairy Light Needle Technique.

Notes & Trivia
Prior to Evankhell's proper appearance within the story, she was believed to be a man (while Tower of God was still in the Best Challenge of Naver, SIU described Evankhell as being male). SIU does note that even now, it's a little difficult to say that she's perfectly female.
When Evankhell was staying at the Floor of Test, the tests were said to be pretty hellish. It’s something that SIU would like to draw in later times.
There are almost no scenarios where someone with the power of the ancient like Evankhell is this active. They are very rare, and by their nature are very powerful.
Evankhell's third eye on the forehead, and the design of the ancient, could be inspired by Hindu motifs. The third eye resembles the eye of Shiva, who is the god of destruction. It is mentioned in Hinduism that whenever the third eye opens, it is followed by destruction. It represent primeval powers, unmanifested gods, and the awareness and spiritual strength that comes from opening your chakras and seeing into the beyond. The design of Evankhell's ancient, with the body and Elephant head, is similar to "Ganesh", who is the son of Shiva.
She used to be ranked #60, but after getting fired from her position as a Ruler, she was demoted to below the Top 100.
(To Zahard's Army) "The problem with Zahard's Army is they value people's family background too much. The kind of pathetic losers who care about family background or class HAVE NO RIGHT TO STAND ON THE SAME BATTLEFIELD AS ME!!"
(To Twenty-Fifth Baam) "You look so droopy, like a jellyfish in warm shinsoo. I haven't seen Urek Mazino myself, but I heard all of the irregulars are like real monsters. You must be a bit different from them."
