Evan Townshend (エヴァン·タウンゼント, Evan Taunzento?) is the main character of Final Fantasy VII The Kids Are Alright: A Turks Side Story. He grew up in Sector 6 of Midgar with his mother Annette Townshend and is a budding investigator who is rebuilding his life after Meteorfall. He is the illegitimate son of President Shinra.



Evan is a troubled 19-year-old, described as tall but lanky, and thus is often the target of ridicule in the pub where his mother works. He has brownish blond hair, blue eyes, and sharp features inherited from his father. He dyed his hair black and dressed like a delinquent in order to make himself appear more mature. Evan resembles his older half-brother Rufus Shinra.


Evan is clumsy and awkward in company of people and tends to act mean to be accepted. Since he grew up on the Upper Plate, Evan felt spoiled in comparison to his friends, and so prefers to be considered tough and uncaring.

Deep down, Evan is a good person who is loyal to his friends and he cares for them. Sometimes, he is egocentric and full of bravado, facing dangerous situations like he knows what he's doing, especially to impress Kyrie.

Evan is a Welsh masculine given name derived from Iefan, a Welsh form for the name John. The name John itself is derived from the ancient Hebrew name יְהֹוחָנָן‎ Yəhôḥānān, which means "YHWH is gracious". Evan also comes from the Gaelic word Eóghan meaning "youth" or "young warrior" and Scots for "right-handed".
