I want despair. I want to return to nothing. But I can't. He won't let me return to nothingness yet. He won't let me return yet. I still exist because he needs me. But when everything is over, when I am of no use anymore, he will abandon me. I've prayed for the day he would abandon me. But now... I fear it.

Rei's origin and heritage are left deliberately unspecified, and there is evidence that she might not even be entirely human. Ritsuko Akagi states that Rei was born in a certain room deep in the lower levels of NERV headquarters, but this is all that is explicitly revealed in the series about her creation.

Dr. Ritsuko Akagi on Rei: "She's not very adept at living."

About the title - it's not meant to indicate that this is the third of a series of Rei photos. Those who are familiar with Evangelion will most likely know what I mean. :D

Oh, and because I always seem to get asked about this - she is wearing red contact lenses. :)
