It is my destiny to live forever, though my survival will bring final destruction to the human race. However, it is possible for me to be killed, and whether I live or die makes no great difference. In truth, death may be the only absolute freedom there is.
A new child was needed to pilot Unit-02. SEELE made the choice, and an unusual one at that. His name is Kaworu Nagisa, and he is the Fifth Child.
From the outset, something seemed very strange about him. For one thing, it seemed he could adjust his Eva synchronization at will, and his relationship with the other pilots seemed off-kilter. Rei was suspicious of him. Kaworu seemed wise for one so young, open, and even affectionate. Kaworu seemed to like, perhaps love, Shinji. In turn, Shinji was unusually open, emotional, and physically receptive when around Kaworu.
Kaworu had a secret which in the end, made Shinji face the most difficult decision of his life.

(For those who are asking - yes, those are red prescription contact lenses. My favorite pair which I tend to wear to school, haha. Sometimes I'm thankful that I'm nearsighted.)Kaworu is a character I've always had a strange fascination for, and I was thankful for the chance to portray him. Now... Don't let me get my hands on your kittens.
This shot was taken just as the sun was rising, during which the lighting was unusually nice. It was worth getting myself dirty so early in the day, haha. This was from before they forced me to put on eyeliner to make my eyes look more like Kaworu's: [link] [link] Nix =padf0ot-m0ony took a similar shot later that day, around sunset: [link] I'm not sure which looks better. But it was troublesome worrying about whether it was smudging or something, argh.
