A female character in the controversial anime series "Neon Genesis Evangelion". She has light blue hair and red eyes even though her most hated color is the color red because it is te color of blood. She rarely displays any emotion during the length of the anime series. Rei Ayanmi was created in the Chamber of Gauf by combining the DNA of Shinji Ikari's mother( Yui Ikari) and the second angel Lilith. There are many Ayanamis down in the Chamber of Gauf and they are all empty vessels to which a soul must be transferred to them to make them whole. She unites with Lilith in the End of Evangelion in order to initiate the Third Impact or the Human Instrumentality Project. She has a small amount of genetic makeup from Yui Ikari so therefore is Shinji Ikari's "relative". She ultimately dies during The End of Evangelion because Shinji Ikari rejected her gift of the Third Impact.
Rei Ayanami is one of the most interesting and complex characters in the anime series:"Neon Genesis Evangelion".
