Soryuu Asuka Langley
Looks: A little on the thin side but well proportioned for her age. No doubt as she grows she will
fill out quite nicely and give Misato a reason to ease up on the beer. Long, somewhat unkempt auburn tresses frame a
pert face punctuated by wide blue eyes. She is a package well worth waiting for and you probably won't have to wait
Smarts: Average, but don't tell her that. As a 14-sai onna no ko she is easily distracted by the
concerns of such and therefore will devote little mental effort to the more serious aspects of her relationship with
NERV. She is a quick study when she's interested and she is interested in driving Eva units. All in all she's not
dumb if she's viewed in an objective manner.
Personality: Arrogant. She's an Eva pilot and that makes her special. And she knows she's special.
What do you expect as she wears her interface headset as a hair ornament. This can make her insufferable at times
but remember that her behavior conceals a tragic past. This young lady's sanity is close to a brittle edge and she
needs every defense she can muster to preserve it. I do not expect however that this knowledge will in any way
diminish the desire to drop kick her a few yards every now and then.
Home Economics: No indications she knows anything about home management beyond opening the
refrigerator door. Her imperial attitude, particularly where things japanese are concerned, indicate that she
expects servants to take care of the more mundane aspects of married life. If not servants certainly her husband.
If this is ameniable to you then I forsee no problems. If it isn't be warned that Asuka is not one to be argued or
forced into compliance. If you expect hot food and clean clothes likely you'll be providing them yourself.
Combat Skills: Unfocused but talented. Outside of an Eva unit she can probably be stomped quite
easily unless NERV trains her in hand-to-hand as well as Eva combat. Inside an Eva unit she's hell-on-wheels (or in
this case, legs). The last person to paint their combat machine bright red brought down eighty enemy pilots before
he got taken out. She appears to distain cannons in favor of closing in with fists and cutlery. However she appears
to handle losing quite badly. Not unexpected given her basic personality. In one fight where she literally had her
head handed to her she was fairly close to losing her grip completely.
Special Abilities: One of the special children who can sychronize with an Eva. Unfortunately this
talent was lost after a mental invasion by an attacking Angel. That talent wasn't all that was lost.
Competition: Ikari Shinji. Despite her apparent distain for him she does care for him as he is a
fellow Eva pilot and thus the only male she can relate to. Despite the attention she attracts from the other males in
her school she does not feel anyone who isn't an Eva pilot is worth her time. Fortunately for you Shinji's attention
is elsewhere so he will not interfere with your interest in Asuka. You will have a hell of a time convincing Asuka
to have anything to do with you as your biggest competitor will be Eva-002.
In-Laws: Her mother is dead by her own hand and I have little data on her father. I expect though
that he will be playing little to no role in your lives.
Finances: Not promising. Asuka's only skill was piloting an Eva and when she lost that she lost
everything, including her mind. Should she recover she will not be in much of a condition to earn a living anytime
soon. Fortunately the earth's population has been so reduced by previous Angel activity that if you have any skills
at all there will be no shortage of lucrative employment. It will probably not be necessary for Asuka to work at all
unless she wanted to.
Sex: All I can say is you'd better be good. Asuka is not likely to be considerate of your feelings
should you fail to perform up to standard. She herself is certainly desireable enough to be an inspiration once you
get past her blunt personality. Once she is convinced of the pleasureableness of the experience she is likely to put
her heart and soul into it making her a lover of vast capacity.
Overall: William Shakespeare wrote a play: "The Taming of the Shrew". Read it before going
anywhere near this girl. If you have the requisite armor plated ego you can make a very happy life for yourself with
Asuka as your companion. It will be a balancing act of clashing personalities as Asuka vies for dominance but if you
can maintain parity (a superior position is out of the question) Asuka will settle in as a loyal and loving, if
bruque, spouse. This one is strictly a matter of taste.
