Neon Genesis Evangelion - Shinji Ikari Cube Craft Free Paper Toy DownloadThis cube craft paper toy is the Shinji Ikari, based on the the anime / mangaNeon Genesis Evangelion”. The paper craft was created by Stvn. Shinji Ikari is the Third Child, the main protagonist of the series and the designated pilot of Evangelion Unit-01. He is the son of "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 Eva-01 against the Angels. He lives initially just with Misato Katsuragi; they are later joined by Asuka Langley Soryu.

Shinji's loss of his mother and then his father lead to abandonment issues, showing little to no self esteem, reclusiveness, and an avoidance of any difficult or painful situations. He is also described as shy, timid, and afraid of physical contact.

While he is acknowledged later in the series to be a skilled Eva pilot, in the early episodes of the series, he is never really shown to have any other notable skills besides his talent for cooking. It is revealed in episode 15 that he is a cellist, something of which he had made no mention previously in the series. When asked when he began playing, he explains that his guardians had insisted on lessons when he turned five. As to why he still plays, he admits it is because he was never told to stop, even though he believed he should have "quit immediately." Thereon, the cello appears as a recurring moif in the series, possibly representing Shinji's "identity" - indeed, his musical talent seems to be the only way in which he feels that he can openly express himself. He claims to be untalented, but is shown both in episode 15 and in Death and Rebirth playing Bach's Cello Suit No. 1.

Shinji was thrown straight in to the heat of battle within the first episode and proved to be one of the greatest pilots they have ever had by being able to syncronize with his Eva without any prior training.

Shinji's relationship with his Evangelion and status as a pilot is very ambivalent; the entire series can be seen as a centered around Shinji.On the one hand, as an Eva pilot, Shinji is very reluctant to go to war, to cause deaths, and to enter battle or to actively do things; on the other hand, he is given strength by his mother and he defines his self by piloting the Eva. Sometimes Unit 01 reaches "berserker" mode - a state in which the Eva is activated without an apparent energy source and the EVA becomes and takes over control of itself. During the battle with the Angel , his reserve power ran out, and he temporarily meets his mother . Directly afterwards EVA Unit 01 enters "BERSERKER" mode, and she (Eva Unit 01) eats the Angel, taking the S² into herself.
