The pilot with an enigmatic personality, Mari is the only one among the Eva pilots who genuinely enjoys piloting. Her repeated comments suggest that she has a liking to the smell of LCL, an amber-colored, translucent liquid that allows the pilot to mentally link with their Evangelion Unit. It is implied that Mari works for an unknown third party, and a pilot designation has not been provided, assuming Mari actually has one.
Another amazing cosplayer from Japan Comiket 79! I’m sorry I had to crop the original photo, but those white boxes are really distracting. Thanks again to 4chanatic for sending this in!
