Lieutenant Eva McKenna is an Allied communications officer appearing in Red Alert 3 and Uprising. She is portrayed by Gemma Atkinson.


Rising Star[]

The Soviet-Allied conflict affected Eva McKenna at a young age and inspired her to enlist. McKenna was the best student in her academy classes year after year, and now personally attends to the highest-ranking members of the Allied Nations, ensuring a strong chain of command. She was the top student at the academy during her tenure. It was rumored that she posed as the 'poster girl' whenever the Allies achieved a rare (and later continuous) military victory.[1]

Third World War[]

By the time the Soviets almost entirely occupied Europe, McKenna had been promoted to lieutenant and tasked to personally attend to the highest-ranking members of Allied coalition. At this critical junction she was assigned to assist a field commander resist the Soviet invasion of the Britain. As the war dragged on with the Soviets and eventually the Empire of the Rising Sun, the lieutenant developed an attraction to the commander and she sought to develop a personal relationship with the commander, often in competition with Agent Tanya who had also developed an interest towards the Commander, as the conflict progressed. At war's end this rivalry came to a head when both women invited the commander out on a celebratory date.[2]

It was anyone's guess who the Commander went out with.

The Uprising[]

Lt. Eva McKenna again assisted the commander in the post-war period, this time to suppress dissident provincial shoguns in Japan and an attempt by Crown Prince Tatsu to reinvigorate the Empire of the Rising Sun.
