Commander of Special Agency NERV. Formerly named Gendou Rokubungi, he changed his name upon marrying Yui Ikari, whom he had been seeing since her university years. He served as Chief of Research at the U.N. Artificial Evolution Laboratories, which was actually a front for promoting the E Project. After Yui's death, he devoted himself to the "Adam Project" and "Instrumentality Project (Human Complementation Project)". Backed by SEELE, he achieved a number of goals including the construction of the Evangelions. However, his honeymoon with SEELE lasted only until the last Angel had been defeated, after which their difference in objectives became apparent and developed into military confrontation. Birthdate: April 29, Blood type:A
