Evie McLaren is a supporting/main character in Season 1 and Season 2.

Evie is a good looking, easy going, sporty girl with a strong work ethic and plenty of ambition to get ahead in life. She has always been a battler. Nothing has been delivered to her on a silver platter. Whatever she's achieved, she's done it herself.

Apart from working hard at school, she also works the small shop/dive business outlet at the Ocean Cafe. Evie stocks and sells sporty beachwear items, as well as booking the scuba diving tours and other aquatic activities that her father runs off the local beach.

A keen triathlete, she trains hard on the beach and in the water, which is how she and Zac originally met up and began dating. Both share a love of the beach and an active lifestyle, so it was inevitable that out of shared training sessions romance would blossom.

When Nixie, Sirena and Lyla appear on the scene, Evie notices the rather odd, unusual out-of-towners - but only begins the resent their presence when Zac spends increasing amount of time with them instead of her. Worried that her life is about to come crashing down, Evie cannot help but become suspicious, especially of Lyla. She and Zac used to have something really good going on. Now, with Lyla, she feels like the third wheel.

Evie is suspicious of Lyla and Zac's relationship, as it appears to be romantic. This causes tension between Evie and the girls, as she treats them badly because of this. As Zac and the mermaids grew closer, Evie and Zac's relationship grew strained. This changed after the falling of Lyla and Zac's friendship. By the end of series 1, Evie finally found out all about Zac and the mermaids and was able to embrace her boyfriend's differences. She apologized to Lyla and the others for judging them too quickly and she became a part of the group.

Season 2

On her birthday she received waterlily perfume made out of oil rather than water from Mimmi.
