At the age of fourteen, Asuka finished college. That same year she piloted her first Eva
Unit. She became a member of the elite team of special fourteen year old. These "children"
were basically born to pilot the Eva's. Asuka became the designated pilot
of Eva-02. Asuka considers herself and her Eva to be the best. She absolutely loves
piloting her Eva. Asuka proved in combat a worthy foe, fearless and indestructible. Initially,
Asuka, had the highest synchronization-rate, but her past kept her from achieving everything
she had the potential to be. After a battle that did not go well, her facade of strength
broke down and she lost her ability to pilot the EVA. The fragile state from her painful past
caused her to shatter. What remained was not, the former, Asuka at all.
Her mother committed suicide when she was very young.
Her dad remarried soon after! She withdrew from her father and stepmother, unable to
accept either of them, this forced Asuka to build a protective shell around herself.
["I don't need anyone's help. I can live and do everything by myself. Because I'm the best.
I need to be the best."]
