Character Description: Asuka Langley Soryu

Asuka isn't with Shinji and Rei from the beginning. She joins later, when she arrives from Germany (along with Ryoji Kaji and Unit 02). Asuka and Rei are practically opposites. 3/4 German, 1/4 Japanese, with American citizenship, Asuka is about as fiery as they come. Aggressive and egotistical, she is in search of popularity.

What most see, however, is a shell she placed to protect herself from further anguish. The anguish occurred when her mother committed suicide and her father remarried. As a result, she (like and yet unlike Shinji) acquired a sense of independence. She is a prodigy, completing college before entering NERV and being one of the soonest to synchronize in Eva tests.

When she and Shinji first met, Toji got a slap in the face (she stepped on his hat and he tried to get it and accidentally looked up her dress). Despite first impressions, later on a relationship begins to form. One day, as Asuka blamed Shinji for forgetting their lunches, Toji remarked that the two of them argued like newlyweds.

In combat, her aggressiveness and refusal to lose shows. She loves piloting the Eva and takes pride in her skill. However, all this is just her shell, so what might happen when that shell begins to crack?
