Introduction Edit

Free-ager parents. Eve Dallas's current partner, Co-habitating with Ian McNab.

Eve noticed Peabody as an Officer in "Glory in Death" and made her an aide to train. Peabody becomes a Detective in "Imitation in Death" and thus, Eve's partner. Peabody is girly, sensitive and fun-loving, balancing Eve's cynicism. They make a good team, with Peabody often being the "Good Cop". In "Treachery in Death", Peabody receives a Medal of honor for uncovering a corrupt cop unit in Illegals.

Her relation with Ian McNab is often a source of embarrassment for Eve, especially when she talks of their physical relation. But despite the comic relief of their conversations, Eve finds them perfect for each other. Another running gag in the series is Peabody's obsession with her weight and love for frivolity including cosmetics and food. Peabody is one of the few people who are aware of Eve's traumatic past and childhood abuse.
