Gendo is NERV’s commander and the protagonist Shinji Ikari’s father. He abandoned Shinji when he was just a baby and for the most part of the series, is very cold and distant towards him. He only seems to care for his son when he sees personal profit from it. For him, Shinji isn’t a son but just a means to obtain his ends. There are some hints that Gendo himself grew up in a childhood full of turmoil, which could explain the way he treats Shinji, but we aren’t completely sure about that.

2. Gambino from Berserk
