Chapter II – Gaghiel
"I hate this place." Kozou Fuyutsuki always hated the Gendo's office and, unofficially, agrees with everyone that calls it "Gendo's Lair", though he never admitted it."I think Gendo wanted something worthy of a cathedral or a temple, but this looks more like a mausoleum. Not look like a place where humans work, but considering what is planned here I think a tomb really is appropriate."
Observing the window while Gendo sits on his throne with a newly installed telephone for the occasion, Fuyutsuki is worried for this story of "forbidden union of ADAM and LILITH." When he heard the first time that Gendo explained his version of Instrumentality and Third Impact all alarms his head rang the same time, and the more he thinks more becomes uneasy:
"As Gendo could develop this process if SEELE was with the embryo of ADAM since they rediscovered it after the Second Impact? What information did he use? How SEELE not know about this?They have the original Dead Sea Scrolls! If they were not planning to use it because they simply did not destroy the embryo? Or, at least, were more competent in their safety. That such Kaji managed to smuggle the "god" of them right under their noses! Would not this is a trap of old men? They are fanatical cultists, but they are not stupid."
"I was not involved at the time,but always found it odd Dr.Katsuragi have been so negligent in the experiment with ADAM. He should have followed the rigor of the scientific method and the giant transported to a facility of SEELE where everything could have been done more carefully, under strictly controlled conditions. If he had done that the damage could have been avoided, or perhaps the Second Impact never occurred, or at least the effects have been mitigated. The man was considered a genius, developed the Theory S2 virtually alone, as he might make a mistake of this magnitude without any precaution? Yui had secret goals when she took risks, but was careful that the price of failure only to fall on her shoulders, unless ..."
"When Adam was destroyed the Seed of Life was also destroyed and half the world with both. Gendo left Antarctica one day before the "accident" and took with him all records. And if he got more than the research results of Katsuragi? And if he got the details of this "forbidden union of ADAM and LILITH" in Seed of Life itself? Union prohibited by whom? SEELE? Or by the creators of ADAM and LILITH? Would he be able to sabotage the experiment to hide their discoveries? Of course yes! It makes sense, is logical and fits the Modus Operandi of Gendo. Without concern for the consequences, without remorse for collateral damage and leaving unscathed by pure luck! No wonder he had such insane confidence, he just had only a pain since I known him."
"SEELE can be formed by fanatical cultists, but they are also the richest and most powerful men in the world. The losses of financial, materials and human resources were astronomical for them. Gendo always joked me for my worries about economic issues, but even I admit the effort that the old men make to turn the world habitable and able to finance the Evas in the chaos post-Second Impact. Were for selfish reasons, but no less than brilliant, really impressive and yet their power today is a shadow of what it once was. They also lost a lot."
"Does Gendo was planning this from the beginning? Since before the Second Impact? He was the sole beneficiaryf or everything bad that happened. His serenity when Yui planned his sacrifice.He struggled so little to convince her to quit.That would give himc ontrol of Unit 01, the key to the Third Impact of SEELE. But he was disturbed by the event, I think, as always, he did not measure the consequences and how it would affect him. Yui, you wanted me to understand Gendo, unfortunately I'm beginning to understand."
"My only consolation is that could be working with Keel. It must be horrible spend the entire day in a room with the smell of urine and feces of colostomy bags of Chairman!" - Fuyutsuki shudders. - "And still the old man uses a perfume disgusting and cheap to mask the stench! Only makes things worse!"
Finally the phone rings. Gendo attends and begins to talk to someone. Fuyutsuki not hear much of the conversation, but deduced that was Kaji.
Ryoji Kaji: "I never expected an Angel attack here. This isn't like you said it would be."
Gendo: "Unit Two is just for this case, and I added a second pilot as a reserve. If the worst happens, escape by yourself."
Ryoji Kaji: "I know."
Fuyutsuki know it will be a waste of time, but thinks has to try anyway. He stops to behold at the landscape of Geofront through the window and looks Gendo:
"Gendo, you are betting again? Putting again, a rookie pilot in a situation of extreme risk? At least equipped the Eva to aquatic combat and provided the maximum possible of weapons?"
Gendo does not turn to respond: "No. If I ordered it, the old geezers would suspect something. An angel attacking a mere transporter deviates too much from their scenarios."
"But you are betting for the second time! You are pushing your luck! And if the girl is not able to handle the angel? What do you think will happen? "
"For this reason I sent a reserve pilot."
"But we did not do test synchronization between Shinji and the Unit 02! We do not know if it's possible to sync anyway! The NERV Germany did not provide the database to confirm or deny the possibility!"
Gendo remains silent.
"Why not send Rei? Because of her "nature" she would have more chances of a forced synchronization that Shinji. "
"Due to the accident with Unit 00 and the recent fighting, the schedule of the Dummy Plug System is very late; Akagi is updating the data now."
Fuyutsuki cannot stop thinking that he did not want to lose your key to the "Union prohibited from ADAM and LILITH," but knows it's silly comment. Instead continues:
"At least you read the report about Shinji, is not it? You read that he cannot swim? You understand that sent the boy, along with a rookie histrionic, to fight in the middle of the ocean without knowing how to swim, with an EVA that he probably will not be able to sync and which, moreover, is not equipped to aquatic fight and armed only with a progressive knife from factory?"
Gendo is unresponsive. Simply sits in his chair and folds his hands over his mouth in his characteristic pose.
"No, he did not read...and will ever read.He has entered in 'standby', just as I feared. "
When Gendo enters his "Power Pose" or ''Gendo's Pose", he refuses to answer. One of the things Fuyutsuki learned dealing with the Supreme Commander of NERV was that does not matter whether he's right or wrong. If all goes well, even though for sheer luck (very, very luck indeed!), He will be considered a visionary genius and if all goes wrong and he do bullshit (very, very bullshit indeed!) everyone will be dead and nobody will be here to call him stupid, fool, cretin, moron, retarded, incompetent, etc. Very often, is not necessary brag and tell people how great you are to earn fame. Sometimes, just only do a smart face, keep silent and be lucky.
UN's Pacific Naval Fleet
Ryoji Kaji activates the speakers of VTOL: "Hey, Katsuragi!"
Misato immediately runs to the window. Kensuke and Touji do the same. She ends up smiling when says: "Kaji!"
The double agent talk by the speakers: "I've something to deliver, so I'll be leaving now ..." He turns to the pilot: "Take off!" and continues: "So, if you'll excuse me, Captain Katsuragi ..."
Touji not believe what he is seeing: "He ran away. He escaped ..."
An officer in the radar room announces: "Target moving away from EVA and the fleet!"
Shinji and Asuka are surprised. Shinji is the first to speak, extremely suspicious of the sudden luck, "Where is it going?" Asuka, completely enraged, ranting: "What?! It is not coming here?! Running away?! Coward!"
The gigantic angel activates its halo and jumps. The scene is almost funny when Ghaghiel rises nearly 150 meters into the air and grabs the entire VTOL once. The pilot screams in despair as the jaws close and the last thought Kaji was: "Holy Shit!"
After all, why would Gaghiel had been the only purebred angel with a mouth?
THE THIRD IMPACT WAS INEVITABLE
With Asuka unconscious by a concussion during the fight, with the EVA 02 paralyzed, the right arm severed and slowly sinking into the ocean, Shinji panics.
"Asuka! Wake up! Wake up, please! Oh, my God! What do I do?"
Maybe Gendo would appreciate the biblical symbolism when the oceans became as red as blood, the sky became black as tar and the waters parted revealing Unit 02opening the mouth of the angel using an arm made of pure energy. Gaghiel is torn in two like an old rag.
Gendo was right. Shinji was able to synchronize with Unit 02. He managed to exceed 400%.
THE THIRD IMPACT WAS INEVITABLE
THE THIRD IMPACT WAS INEVITABLE
Mr. White off the Holoprojector and turn lights. Students have mixed reactions and as always Newbie 01 is the first to ask:
"This bizarreness in the fight with the angel happens frequently?"
Mr. White, half embarrassed, replied: "Well, yes, Gaghiel is the second most successful angel. In this phase of the Angel War, the angels were not very mentally developed and acted on instinct. It stuck to its basic guideline, ignored Unit 02 and located easily ADAM in VTOL when it began to move away from the fleet. We said Gendo was not a very competent military strategist."
Mr. Black continued: "And Shinji initiating Third Impact using Unit 02 occurs also a good number of times, which contributed to its placement."
"What made me curious was the theory of Fuyutsuki, Gendo really was the culprit behind Second Impact?" - Xavier Vargas asks definitely surprised, he did not imagine that the Supreme Commander of NERV had the courage for such a feat at the time.
"In many worlds, yes, he is responsible," - Mr. White begins - "but not on purpose. It was like an unexpected side effect. He just wanted to destroy the evidence of what he discovered."
"The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic. "- Mr. Black continues -"As we have seen in our course this phrase is attributed to Joseph Stalin, but can also be applied to Gendo. For him was like accidentally urinated in an anthill. Was not intentional, yet did not bother him one bit."
Mr. White resumes: "He later implicated Dr. Katsuragi for the fiasco. Look at Holoscreen":
September 18th, 2000
Council Chamber of SEELE
"Rokunbungi, explain yourself!" Demand Chairman Lorenz Kihl, or rather SEELE 01, with an irritation that the few humans has seen. "What happened? Why the removal of the organ S2 was performed in Antarctica? We order the transport of ADAM to the complex of Nevada. There was the entire infrastructure for the experiment!"
Gendo Rokunbungi does not change his posture in his chair. He maintains his stance. Hands clasped under his chin. To a casual observer it would appear that he was praying. To Gendo, this gesture insulates and protects the world around them. These small rituals give comfort and security; at heart, he is a man superstitious who appreciates symbolism.
"It was Katsuragi that has exceeded his authority and started the procedure on his own. I think he was afraid of being replaced in the United States. Everything stated in my reports ..."
The monolith marked as SEELE 07 interrupts Gendo.
"We have all read and reread his report, Rokunbungi. Still not making sense! Why would replace Katsuragi? He is the leading authority in your field! The whole theory S2 we used was developed by him, almost alone. "
Gendo turns his head slightly toward the monolith.
"Katsuragi was a little unbalanced. Problems with his daughter recently arrived. He has ... had become lax lately. When I brought her daughter to the base in Antarctica and the situation became much worse, with constant bickering and disagreements with the team..."
Newbie 01 interrupts: "SEELE cannot be so stupid to fall for that!"
"And they were not" - Responds an angry - "Note:"
September 18th, 2000.
Council Chamber of SEELE- After the departure of Gendo.
"Do you believe in Rokunbungi, Chairman Keel?" - Ask SEELE 02.
"Of course, not, but he has an asset that we desperately need. And he knows it. "
Hears a deep sigh: "Yui ..." - The monolith SEELE 06 says the name in a tone of weariness and discouragement. - "He's the only one who can persuade her to cooperate in the EVA Project."
"Then what shall we do?" - Questioned SEELE 03.
"We have to clean the dirt, cover up this fiasco ... and protect Gendo, mainly of Yui Ikari. She cannot know the truth" - SEELE 01 speaks toneless.
"Damned Rokunbungi! He has no idea how much it cost us? The world economy will collapse and destroy precious financial, material and human resources for our scenario." - Rant SEELE 04.
"He delayed our schedule in decades. The planet can enter a new dark age "- SEELE 07 disguises his anger, but everyone knows the truth: he is who most hates Gendo Rokunbungi.
"Why he did this madness? Caused billions of unnecessary deaths, devastated all coastal areas of the globe." - Ask SEELE 06.
"He found something that did not want anyone else to know. It was his way to destroy the evidence. Even with our resources will be impossible to recover all that was lost."- Respond SEELE 02.
"I'm curious to know what ... we could employ torture, is obvious, but I do not think necessary. Everyone has their secret agenda, including Gendo, it must have its own scenario" - Comment SEELE 01.
"Why not? - Interrupt SEELE 07 - "Yui can be a problem, but it cannot protect Rokubungi of a severe punishment…"
"Because I know how Gendo works. In my youth, I dealt with a man like him, a man who came from nothing, superstitious, charismatic, paranoid, that through carefully cultivated connections, used and disposed of allies, using the plight of suffering people to attained power. Like him, Gendo always find someone to parasitize and use: first he used Yui Ikari to reach us when Yui is no longer useful he will find someone else to maintain its value for us and the cycle resumes."
"Chairman, do you think he will betray Yui?" - SEELE 06 spoke with some concern in his voice.
"Yes, one way or another. The tiger cannot change their stripes; their nature is causing pain to everyone around him, like he or not. His predecessor just loved ... no, it's better to say he felt affection for only a person and induce her to suicide. So it will be with Gendo, only pain and misery will follow, it just is not able to recognize it. Many cannot be happy, that is a fact of life, but among these there are those who simply do not deserve happiness."
"He's insanely confident in himself, but not stupid;" - continued Keel – "he knows to keep handy for us, at least until ready to betray us. If he wants to play, let's play. He wants to be king and god, but forget that in chess, the game ends with the death of the king and a god is always sacrificed to initiate a new world."
"He will be our spokesperson, our prophet. As the greatest of them in the past, he will see the Promised Land, but not enter it. Like his predecessor he will only fall at the end" - Keell grin – "I wish I was there when it happens...As I was with his predecessor, it was funny to see him breaking as a dry stick, muttering useless regrets and giving up of the life."
Mr. White starts again: "Many of the acts of SEELE does not make sense to us because they are basically a cult. You have to analyze the religious context that they follow to understand them. Gendo underrated them because of that."
"Gendo is more complex because it is highly paradoxical in its ambitions and actions. When questing for power, there will always be sacrifices; there will always be pain for himself and injured people. Gendo tried to escape to make sacrifices simply not clinging to nothing and creating a persona to protect him as a machine, devoid of emotions. Plucked from inside feelings and tossed in the trash. Learned not to be moved by the crying, the pain and sorrow of others. The pain of others is another, cannot penetrate him, and handcuff him. On some level, he not only did not care what people think about him, he could not understand how anyone could care."
"Was this cruelty that made it useful for SEELE, they knew he would be able to everything for his goals. Despite his limitations as a scientist and military strategist, he was a master at selecting appropriate people to work and exploit them to realize their delusions of divinity as they predicted."
"When a man dreams of being a god, is like a child wanting to be a superhero. It is simply a fantasy. All possible motivations for a man: craving for power, compassion, revenge, love, lust, etc. only make sense to humans. If there are gods they should not have ambitions and desires that humans can understand and even sympathize as microbes have desires that do not interest us. Speaking of divinity is like talking about music to a deaf and colors to a blind man. This takes the focus off of tangible ambitions, blurred vision and goals creates negligence, as did Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin and many others."
"He wanted to be a god simply for not having "guts" to be a man. It only took one pain, to lose Yui, and did not know to handle it. Even this pain he could have easily avoided because he knew the risks, instead he rationalized the fact and blamed the heavens, and the entire world except himself. "
And if you have any doubt that he is at least an accomplice Second Impact watch this:
Antarctica, 2015 – (Episode 12)
Gendo and Fuyutsuki are onboard an aircraft carrier in a sea of red.
Kouzou: Nothing living is allowed to exist here in the world of death, Antarctica. Or rather we should call it "hell".
Gendo: Nevertheless, we, human beings, are standing here, living as living things.
Kouzou: Because we are protected by the power of science.
Gendo: Science is human power.
Kouzou: That arrogance caused the tragedy 15 years ago, the Second Impact. And this scene is the result. It's too big punishment for us considering our crime. It's just like the Dead Sea!
Gendo: Yet, this is a purified world without impurity of the original sin.
"Every mass murderer loves to compare your genocidal acts with purification, cleaning, etc. is the method of rationalization they develop."- Commented Mr. Black -"Do you consider Gendo a passional man or a rational one? Always vote in passional. He does not give much reason to logic and pragmatism when making decisions and his motivations have always been emotional. This complicates the realization of goals because he needs to justify all their actions from the perspective of his "vision" and not by practicality and common sense."
Mr. White concludes: "It would be interesting to continue, but the time is now ending. We'll talk more when we look Ramiel. You are dismissed."
You can say they are just Epiletic Trees and conjecture, but the truth is that Evangelion was not meant to be a logical work. The goal was to create as much Wangst and Nightmare Fuel possible using and abusing the Rule of Mindscrew and, occasionally, the Rule of Cool, but I like a logical story so I decided to put what I understood that could have happened to the story make sense (this is a personal opinion and can be seen as a bunch of nonsense if you prefer, I do not intend to offend anyone!).
I was going include that Gendo had exchanged samples of genetic material that would be used in the experiment with ADAM for his, to increase his compatibility with the embryo later (which would make him the father of Kaworu in many continuities!), But this is an information from Rebuilding and is not yet confirmed how they will deal with it in the movie, then left out.
I was going take a break this story until I master the better English, but the real reason I have written this chapter were a friend of mine, Marcos, and Toy Story 3! During a barbecue, some children is seeing the film on TV and Marcos, who knows how I hate Gendo had the insolance to compare Ken with Gendo and Barbie with Yui, showing that Yui was alive he would be redeemed as Ken! Honestly! Gendo as a Henpecked Husband? Only AUs as Shinji Ikari Raising Project or the excellent fanfictions "NGE: Nobody Dies" by Gregg Landsman or "Nerv: Dry Cleaning and Takeout" by TehPrognoob I could believe that, but with incredible difficulty. It would be almost like seeing Hitler as a Jewish rabbi and human rights defender and the Dalai Lama as leader of the Reich!
Many thanks to those who endured this story so far and I apologize if I offended anyone it's just an exhibition of ideas and my poor english.
P.S.: I admit I am an exaggerated fan of EVA and a dedicated Gendo Hater and Marcos is a fanatic Shinji Hater .
