The enigmatic Rei Ayanami, one of the mysterious First Children and pilot of Evangelion Unit-00, is a silent and socially withdrawn girl, displaying no lust for life or passion in her actions. Fiercely loyal to Nerv’s leader Gendo Ikari, Rei knows her expendable nature and has no problem throwing herself into battle despite the possible danger and risk to her self.

As the series reaches its climax, some serious revelations regarding the nature of Rei gets revealed, and as such she plays a pivotal role in the follow up movie, The End of Evangelion.
