Characters

 

 

Name: Shinji Ikari
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Occupation: Student, Eva Pilot
Summary: Shinji is for the most part of the time an extremely troubled child, however, most of his ordeals are worsened, and often even caused, by his severe lack of self confidence. Shinji finds it incredibly hard to express his feelings towards others for the fear of being emotionally hurt, and is all too often unwilling to adapt to new situations. Shinji is also the reluctant pilot of EVA-01, though no one really knows why he continues to pilot the Eva as he's made it quite clear on several occasions now that
he would rather not be its pilot. He seems to have a very tight bond to Unit 01, and it puts itself in danger just to save him.

 

 

Name: Misato Katsuragi
Age: 29
Gender: Female
Occupation: NERV Operations Director
Summary: Misato is an energetic, determined and strong willed individual who's not afraid to take charge of a bad situation, ....that is when she's not busy drinking. Misato joined NERV after the death of her father, who died saving her life during the second impact, intent on exacting revenge against the Angels for her loss. She soon acquired the rank of Captain and shortly afterwards that of Major, and is appointed as NERV's operations director with explicit control over Evas 00, 01 and 02 in the absence of both Commanders Ikari and Fuyutsuki. As well as working for NERV, she is Shinji's voluntary guardian, although her attitude and behavior towards him is more of that expected from an older sister. Despite her sisterly approach to Shinji and her occasionally bad domestic habits though. Misato has also taken on the role of Asuka's guardian.

 

 

Name: Gendou Ikari
Age: 48
Gender: Male
Occupation: NERV Commander
Summary: As a Commander, Gendou is very experienced, secretive, always achieves results and is able to stay calm when in command, even when faced with dire situations. As a father, however, he is cold, heartless and even cruel. Gendou has never been there for his son, Shinji, and has made no real attempts to get to know him better, despite the fact that he's capable of doing so for Rei. He seems to almost be disappointed with Shinji and is content to treat his son as a complete stranger whom he may occasionally have a use for. Gendou may work for NERV, however, he doesn't share the same goals laid down by SEELE who seem intent on carrying out the Human Instrumentality Project. All Gendou really cares about is carrying out the last wish of his wife; the prevention of a probable third impact instigated by Angels.

 

 

Name: Kouzou Fuyutsuki
Age: 58
Gender: Male
Occupation: NERV Vice-Commander
Summary: When in command, Kouzou is not all that dissimilar to Commander Ikari in that he too remains perfectly calm even when a situation turns nasty. He can, however, be a little apprehensive at times, but will take the time out to engage in conversation with lower ranking NERV personnel. Unlike Gendou, Kouzou is more likely to play it safe as a posed to taking big risks, and although Kouzou maybe a decade older than Gendo, it would seem that his role in NERV's hierarchy is more of that of a vice-commander. It's Commander Ikari who seems to have the last say, that is when he's not away attending other more important matters.

 

 

Name: Maya Ibuki
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Occupation: NERV Lieutenant
Summary: Maya is a friendly and polite individual who enjoys her work, is grateful for living in the twenty first century and is the kind of person who welcomes technology openly. Maya is easily disturbed by scenes of violence and aggression and hence is more of a pacifist in nature. Maya is also an incredibly hard worker, is eager to please and will rarely ever over step the mark as far as her position in NERV is concerned. Maya is a technician at NERV and works closely with Ritsuko as her assistant for most of the time, in a way, Maya has earned Ritsuko's trust and respect and considers her to be her mentor. Maya has a great deal of respect for Ritsuko, and will willingly follow Ritsuko's wishes even if she herself doesn't quite agree with them.

 

 

Name: Makoto Hyuga
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Occupation: NERV Lieutenant
Summary: Though he may not look it, Makoto is actually an incredibly strong willed, determined and brave individual. He takes his job at NERV extremely seriously and doesn't think twice about laying his life on the line when it comes to battling against the Angels. Makoto would seem to be the type of person who doesn't get out that much, though this is more likely to be the result of the amount of effort he puts into his work as opposed to a problem of self confidence. He loves nothing more than digging up those secrets and hidden agendas kept out of sight by both NERV and SEELE, in effect Makoto's true job is that of Misato's secret mole inside the very heart of NERV. Though Makoto and Misato will never become anything more than friends, Makoto cares a great deal about Misato and will gladly carry out her wishes, even if this means over stepping the mark and potentially jeopardizing his career in NERV.

 

 

Name: Shigeru Aoba
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Occupation: NERV Lieutenant
Summary: Shigeru is generally a very laid back kind of person who doesn't take life too seriously, though in the heat of battle, however, Shigeru can become quite apprehensive and tense, and at times even overly concerned. Despite his lazy approach to life though, Shigeru takes his work at NERV extremely seriously and always delivers results. Shigeru is heavily into music and as a result of his interest also plays the guitar, relentlessly, so much so that he can often be seen practicing chords, using an air guitar, on the job whilst all's quiet.

 

 

Name: Ritsuko Akagi
Age: 30
Gender: Female
Occupation: NERV Head Technician
Summary: Ritsuko is very secretive and seldom talks about herself or her family, but it is known that she didn't get along with her mother, Naoko Akagi, creator of the MAGI super computers used by NERV, that is on a personal level. She works closely with Commanders Ikari and Fuyutsuki and knows a great deal of the truths behind the mysteries surrounding the second impact, Adam and the arrival of the Angels. She is also friends with Misato and Kaji having known them both for many years. Although Ritsuko is fond of Kaji, the two are merely good friends, she knows Kaji still cares for Misato. Ritsuko herself though is still single mainly because she doesn't really know how to act around men. Therefore Ritsuko has pretty much got on with her life by immersing herself in her work, something which is very important to her.

 

 

Name: Rei Ayanami
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Occupation: Student and Evangelion pilot
Summary: Rei is extremely timid, shy and at times almost seems withdrawn from the world around her. She finds it incredibly hard to express her feelings towards others and as a consequence isn't the kind of person who makes friends that easily. All of Rei's personnel records have been erased, she has no parents and there is no trail leading to her past, it would seem that her existence begins at a dead end.  She was the first child to be chosen to pilot an Eva, in particular EVA-00, in accordance with the Marduk institute. Though unfortunately she was seriously injured during her first attempt to synchronize with her Eva when it mysteriously went out of control. Fortunately Commander Ikari rescued her and she survived the accident, her next attempt at synchronization was successful and she has now become the active pilot of EVA-00. Whether or not this is by choice is unknown, Rei simply seems to do as she is told without complaining, something which Shinji is known for doing.

 

 

Name: Pen Pen
Age: 2
Gender: Male
Occupation: Domestic Penguin
Summary: Pen Pen can often be seen wondering back and fourth around Misatio's apartment, that's when he's not lounging around or suffering from the ill effects of his owner's futile attempts at cooking. Pen Pen may well be a warm water penguin to most, but to Misato, Pen Pen is more of a companion and a good source of company when she's feeling lonely and down. Pen Pen permanently wears a portable air conditioner on his back for use during his walkabouts around Misato's apartment, though when he's off duty, Pen Pen lives a comfortable lifestyle in Misato's somewhat over sized refrigerator, that's when he's not busy relaxing in her bath. Pen Pen also seems to be reasonably intelligent and clever, and at times has an almost cunning look about him as though he's planning something big. This aside, however, Pen Pen gets on extremely well with almost anyone, especially with Misato, Asuka and Hikari (i.e. females) and would seem to have an interest in Shinji's attempts at classical music.

 

 

Name: Kensuke Aida
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Occupation: Student
Summary: Kensuke is a thoughtful and intelligent individual who pays great attention to details, and is also a fanatical war enthusiast intrigued by all things loud and destructive. Desperate to get a glimpse of the action on tape, especially battles involving the Eva series, Kensuke has ended up on the battle field several times, and even once managed to find himself in EVA-01's cockpit; quite possibly the apex of his achievements to date. With his mother dead and his father often away working on important projects, Kensuke has become an independent sort capable of looking after his own. He attends the same school as Shinji and the two along with Toji have become the best of friends. Kensuke also appreciates and shares Toji's interest in Misato, despite having to listen to Shinji's on going roommate horror stories.

 

 

Name: Hikari Horaki
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Occupation: Student
Summary: Hikari is a pleasant, friendly and well organised girl who lives with her two sisters whom she assumes responsibility for. At school Hikari is representative for class 2-A and is very dedicated to her job, it's a position which she aims to fulfil to the best of her abilities. She may be a little bossy at times, however, this is only because she wants to set a good example and maintain the smooth running of the class. Although she gets along well with most of her classmates, Hikari gets along particularly well with Asuka and the two have become the best of friends. Hikari also has a crush on Toji, that's when she's not busy ordering him around, however, she finds it hard expressing her feelings towards him in person.

 

 

Name: Touji Suzuhara
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Occupation: Student and Evangelion pilot
Summary: Despite Touji's tough guy type appearance, he's actually quite a thoughtful individual who gets along well with others, especially with Shinji and Kensuke. As well as looking the school tough guy, Touji spends most of his time looking at other more important things, girls, women, and in particular Misato who he has a heavy crush on. He'll often go out of his way just to say 'Hi' or to catch a glimpse of her. Toji also pilots EVA Unit 03, however, Touji isn't exactly enthusiastic about the whole affair.

 

 

Name: Asuka Langley Soryu
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Occupation: Student and Evangelion pilot
Summary: Asuka is extremely confident and constantly struggles onwards trying to better herself over others. Since her mother worked for NERV, and went insane after an synchronization accident with EVA-02, and later committed suicide many years ago. Asuka has emersed herself heavily in her own pride, possibly her way of dealing with her tragic loss. As a result of this she is often unwilling to accept any kind of help and advice from others, and will rarely ever admit to making a mistake. She can also be very annoying at times and is known to look down on people, especially Shinji, however, she would never intentionally hurt the feelings of others. Asuka is also the proud pilot of EVA-02, and is probably the only Eva pilot who actually enjoys and takes pride in being a pilot. Although she puts a lot of effort into piloting EVA-02, unlike Shinji she is not a naturally talented pilot, it is therefore extremely likely that this is the reason for her pointless ongoing rivalry with him.

 

 

Name: Kaji Ryoji
Age: 31
Gender: Male
Occupation: NERV Special Inspector
Summary: Kaji is quite the playful type who officially works for NERV special inspections, however, he also secretly works for the Japanese government investigating NERV's true intentions on their behalf. Kaji has a nose for trouble and enjoys nothing more that living out the life of some kind of secret agent or spy. Although his relationship with Misato ended years ago, he's never really given up the battle to win her back and it's possible that they may at some point get back together, despite objections from Asuka who can be seen clinging to Kaji whenever the opportunity presents itself. As far as bad habits go, Kaji is hardly perfect in that he can often be found playfully hitting on women. While not a crime in itself, this type of behaviour doesn't score him any points with Misato, neither does neglecting to shave, something which Misato is always picking up on.

 

 

Name: Yui Ikari
Age: N/A(deceased)
Gender: Female
Occupation: NERV Scientist
Summary: Yui was a caring, thoughtful and content individual, she'd often be caught with a smile on her face and at times seemed almost like a child eager to experience life to the fullest. Although an extremely intelligent and capable scientist, Yui wasn't particularly career driven, though instead sought to experience as much of life as possible. Yui was also the kind of person who would easily make friends what with her out going personality and her polite and affectionate approach to others, and it's because of this that she was able to gain the trust and friendship of others very quickly. Yui Passed during a Synchronozation Accident with Unit 01, and it is believed that she became part of the Eva's Core.

 

 

Name: Naoko Akagi
Age: N/A(deceased)
Gender: Female
Occupation: NERV Head Technician
Summary: Naoko, it would seem, was more interested in her work than in what life had to offer. Her devotion to her work, however, wasn't without its rewards, Naoko was the main driving force behind the development of the MAGI super computers used by NERV. Though with all her time and energy put into her work, Naoko rarely made enough time for her daughter, Ritsuko, during her childhood. Naoko was having an affair with Gendo after Yui's death. She committed suicide in front of the MAGI when she learned of Gendo's betrayal of love towards her. Gendo never stopped loving Yui, Rei's existence alone was proof of that. Realising this was enough to send Naoko over the edge, and in the process NERV lost an individual who'd rendered such remarkable service to the MAGI system.

 

Name:Name: Kaworu Nagisa
Age: 14
Gender: Male(appearance)
Occupation: Evangelion pilot
Summary: Kaworu is softly spoken and polite at all times, even during combat. He seems to be extremely open with people, especially with Shinji, though always carries an air of mystery around with him. Though Shinji's newly placed trust in Kaworu turns out to be sadly misplaced when it is learnt that Kaoru is in fact an Angel. Kaworu is not all that dissimilar to Rei in that he too has had his personal records erased from existence, though it is known that he was born on the same day as the second impact. While an explanation as to how Kaworu came to be is not given, based on the fact that he is an Angel, and hence exhibits Angel properties much like Rei, and is sent by SEELE directly to NERV to instigate the third impact, it is likely that SEELE created Kaworu in much the same way as Gendou brought Rei into existence. The fact that Kaworu was created from Adam explains his ability to synchronise with an Evangelion with ease, and at any desired synchronisation ratio provided that his soul is more dominant than that of the Eva's. This ability is useful in that he was allegedly sent to NERV to replace Asuka as the pilot of Unit 02, though not so when his true motive comes to light.
