Shinji Ikari is the Third Child, the main protagonist of the Neon Genesis Evangelion series and the designated pilot of Evangelion Unit-01. He is the son of the "deceased" Gehirn bioengineer Yui Ikari and NERV Commander Gendo Ikari. After his mother's death, he was abandoned by his father and lived for 11 years with his sensei, until he was summoned to Tokyo-3 to pilot Unit-01 against the Angels.
