Evangelion Unit-04(Yongōki: 四号機)

Katase
Although they appear to be giant humanoid robots, the Evangelion Units (or EVAS) are actually cybernetic organisms, integrating a mostly biological being with a substantial mechanical infrastructure and flexible polymer sheeting and armor plating. Evangelion Unit-04 was constructed by the Second Branch of NERV, located at a desert site in Nevada, USA, acting primarily as a test subject for an experimental S² Engine provided by the Third Branch of Germany. Unit-04 was destroyed along with the entire Second Branch and all facilities within an 89 km radius. The cause of the accident remains unknown. NERV determined that the incident occurred when the S² Engine was being installed in the unit, and that there were numerous factors that could have led to the accident. One theory behind the Unit's destruction is that the S² Engine had opened up a Dirac Sea or that the machine simply converted all matter in the vicinity into pure energy when the containment field was compromised. One unsupported speculation states that the destruction could have been planned and carried out by SEELE, in a premature attempt to control NERV's acquisition of a working S² engine, but there is currently no evidence to support this. Unit-04's design is virtually identical to that of it's sister Unit-03 but silver in color, with black and red detail. The pilot of Evangelion Unit-04 was never specified and it is possible that it didn't have one during the activation test or that a dummy plug was used. #EVA #Evangelion #Mecha #Neon_Genesis_Evangelion #Robots
