Introduction and Injury Main articles: Episode 1Episode 2Episode 3 The very first time we see Rei is Rei 3's appearance to Shinji on the street near the beginning of the episode. The first time we see Rei 2, the Rei we meet for most of the series, she is badly injured and wrapped in bandages, in so much pain that she has trouble even sitting up.
This evokes a sense of sympathy in us and Shinji. An extra piece of animation showing Rei collapsed on the floor in this scene was added in Death.
We learn later that these injuries were caused during the activation experiment with Eva which Gendo supervised. While Gendo was concerned enough for Rei's safety during the activation test to rescue her himself he now treats her coldly when Kozo questions Gendo sending out Rei in Eva It has been suggested that using Rei in this way was a ruse to get Shinji to pilot Eva when Misato and Ritsuko couldn't convince him.
During episode 2Rei is wheeled past Shinji in a hospital bed, mirroring episode 1. Instead of vacantly staring up as she was in episode 1, Rei now glares at Shinji as she passes.
In episode 3Rei has crutches propped up against her school desk but isn't seen using them. Living Conditions Main article: Episode 5 During episode 5 we learn that Rei lives alone in her apartment, numbered Her apartment is part of a large block of apartment buildings on the western edge of Tokyo-3 that is in the process of being demolished .
From this episode it becomes clear just how little Rei values her own personal space and comfort. When Rei emerges from the shower naked, she seems completely unconcerned that Shinji can see her. Instead, she is upset that he is handling Gendo's Glasses. Even when he falls on top of her, she treats it as a minor annoyance, and asks him to please move. She then gets up and dresses in his presence quite casually.
It should be kept in mind that this scene is the first time they actually spoke to each other. When Shinji later brings the event up in order to apologize Rei doesn't seem to care. This seems to show that Rei has so little experience with other people that she has no idea of the effect that her nudity might have upon a teenage boy.
Unit Activation Main articles: When the process of synchronization reached phase 3, approaching the absolute borderline, Eva suddenly went berserk and the entry plug was auto-ejected.
Rei was badly injured as a result of the ejection of the entry plug, her left arm and eye being damaged. This is when Rei obtains Gendo's glasses and this is the moment when we learn why Rei treasures them. Just prior to the re-activation experiment, Rei smiles as she puts on her plugsuit, as she recalls when Gendo came to her aid during the failed activation experiment.
In the mangaGendo's glasses case is present on the bench next to Rei in this scene. Rei takes Gendo's glasses with her into the Entry Plug during the re-activation experiment which helps to calm her and thus the re-activation experiment is successful. After the re-activation is complete, Rei tilts her head back in the entry plug and a number of air bubbles escape her mouth this indicates that Rei had held her breath throughout the entire re-activation experiment, showing how nervous she was.
Rei also takes Gendo's glasses with her into the entry plug prior to the fight with Ramiel, as she believed she was going to die during the battle. Towards the end of episode 5, Rei curiously watches Shinji and Eva as he moves out from the cage. The End of Evangelion Main articles: She turns to Gendo, giving him a cold stare, one of her first signs of retaliation towards him. Gendo reveals that the promised time has come. During the fray above, the two go to Terminal Dogmaspecifically to Lilith's resting place.
There they encounter Ritsukowho fails in an attempt to destroy Nerv Headquarters, and is killed by Gendo. However, while this happens, Eva begins awakening as the trigger of Third Impact. Realizing Shinji needs her, Rei denies Gendo and takes his arm and Adam's embryo into herself, regenerating her lost arm in the process. She then turns and approaches Lilith, stating "I'm home" to which Lilith responds "Welcome home".
Lilith ingests Rei's body, and her soul, Adam's embryo, and Lilith's body merge, and transform into a new Lilith, resembling a giant, white Rei. Third Impact Third Impact begins with Lilith appearing to Shinji in a strange form; Rei's eyes are missing, instead having ominous black pits in their place.
When Shinji addresses the being as "Ayanami", the pits turn into Rei's eyes. However, Shinji is traumatized already by the events, and so Lilith appears to Shinji in the form of Kaworu who is believed to be within the new Lilith. The result of this penetration is the creation of the Tree of Life.
With the tree of life created, and the Black Moon ascending into space, the new Lilith appears as an even larger, angelic Rei. Shinji, choosing the latter, kills the new Lilith, who falls apart and releases the souls of humanity back unto Earth.
Shinji wakes up on the surface of Earth, and is visited one last time by an apparition of Rei, which parallels the apparition in Episode Profile and Relationships with Other Characters "Making something Nurturing something is really great. You can see and learn so many things from the process. With Shinji Rei's relationship with Shinji is one that plays a large part in the series progression.
The two meet when she's brought out to pilot Unit 01 when Shinji refuses, despite being in critical condition. The two still are apart at first; many awkward scenes playing out between them, both due to each other's lack of social skills.
In one particular scene, when Shinji goes to her apartment to give her her new ID card for Nerv. He finds her naked; having just gotten out of the shower.

Later, when talking to Shinji, he criticizes his father: Gendo, to which Rei responds with a hard slap across Shinji's face. However, once the fifth angel Ramiel attacks, the two start getting close, with Rei protecting Shinji from the angel's destructive beam, damaging Unit 00 and herself in the process. When Shinji breaks down crying after seeing her alive, she responds with confusion at what to do, but soon smiles when Shinji asks her.
It's the first one not aimed at Gendo. From then on, Rei continues to build her relationship with Shinji, despite her abnormal nature. To her, Rei sees Shinji as the first one to give her kindness after Gendo's selfish use of her. With Gendo Rei's bond with Gendo is one of the most complex throughout the series. Being at least partially derived from the salvaged remains of his wife, Gendo has kept Rei very close to his side.
Until Shinji becomes an Eva pilot, Gendo is the only one who is established to have shown Rei any act of kindness.
Her memory of Gendo saving her after Unit 00 goes berserk during an activation test has been held cherished to her, so much so that she keeps his burnt glasses held in a case as a memento. Despite this, Rei claims to not pilot the EVA because of Gendo, but because it is her "bond" with all people.
As time went on, Rei became more wary of Gendo, focusing more of her attention of Shinji; even countering Asuka's claims that "She's the special one" in Episode Her disobedience starts when she refuses to take down Unit 03 after being affected by Bardielknowing that Shinji's friend Toji is trapped in the entry plug, even getting herself hurt in the process.
It's taken to extremes when she sorties without orders to fight Zeruel on her own, or when she disobeys direct orders to eject from her EVA when she sacrifices herself to defeat Armisaelprotecting everyone in particular, Shinji from getting killed as all EVA's were out of commision.
Despite dying, Rei returns to life through NERV's cloning technology, and she still retains a vague remembrance of her past life. The trauma causes Rei to reflect more deeply on herself and her relationships, coming to antagonize Gendo as a result. Thus, when Gendo tries to assume control over Instrumentality through her, she flat out rejects him and instead rushes to help Shinji. With Asuka From the moment Rei rejected Asuka's request to be friends in Episode 09, the two are set up to have different feelings for each other.
Rei shrugs Asuka off at first as "the other Eva pilot" during her inner monologue in Episode 14, in part due to her lack of social skills. She is seen by Asuka as a stuck-up girl who thinks she's better then everyone else; constantly being picked on and nicknaming her "Wonder Girl".
On multiple occasions, when Rei is with Shinji - whether it be working or hanging out with him - Asuka gets more fired up . Rei's silence only adds fuel to the fire when it's misinterpreted for arrogance. However, overtime, Rei becomes a lot more sturdy in standing up for herself. Starting in Episode 11, with overgrowing suspicion of Gendo, she shuts down Asuka's claim on being treated better then everyone else.
It continues in Episode 16 when ignoring Asuka's frustration at Shinji getting the highest sync ratio and if she pilots the Eva for her own benefit instead of helping others.
Naturally, both moments are meant with bitterness. In Episode 22, after a long period of ignoring each other in an elevator ride, the two get into a heated argument with Rei trying to convince Asuka to calm down if she wants to improve her below average sync ratio stats. Asuka, with her downward descent into depression, lashes out more then usual at Rei, calling her Commander Ikari's doll and even slapping her when Rei says how she'll die if commanded to. Even with Rei's best intentions, the image of her as a useless puppet stays planted in Asuka's mind throughout the series, and it is unknown if she ever comes to terms with it.
Officially, Rei Ayanami is fourteen years old, but it is stated that all records of her background have been erased. Unusually for a child her age, Rei lives alone in an decrepit apartment. Rei attends Tokyo-3 Junior high school and is a member of Class 2-A.
Rei Ayanami is most famous for her distinctive appearance. She has blue hair, pale skin, and red eyes. It has been stated that Rei's unusual appearance was intended by the creators of the series to make her stand out. Strangely, Rei's unusual appearance is never commented upon throughout the series, even by Asuka. Rei is a vegetarian.
This is seen in Episode It is not clear whether this is by choice, or through quirk of her physiology. Secret of the Blue water  Outwardly, Rei can seem somewhat cool and aloof, often spending time on her own reading books.
Yet, she can easily be confused by emotions, and is somewhat detached from her own. This is most obvious in Episode 6when Rei finds her self unsure how she is supposed to feel after being rescued by Shinji Ikari.

Winner of the "Best TV Animation Award" at the 1st Animation Kobe In the Director's Cut version of Episode 22, five doubles of Asuka, voiced by the actresses of other female characters in the show, appear to torment the real Asuka with images of her past behavior.

However, this was unachieved. The Lance of Longinus more generally called the Spear of Destiny is the lance that supposedly pierced Christ's side during his crucifixion.
