Twelfth Angel (第12使徒[?], "Dai 12 no shito") is the 12th Angel belonging to the Rebuild of Evangelion movie series. It is introduced in the movie Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. It is a core-like Angel sealed inside Evangelion Mark.06 by a supposed Spear of Longinus.

History

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo

As soon as Shinji Ikari pulls out the two Longinus Spears from Lilith's body, the Mark.06 starts floating in the air bending the upper and lower members of the Evangelion as if it was void. Later the visor activates, showing a red light and the Evangelion Mark.09 decapitates it with the scythe, releasing the Angel inside it which first appears as innumerable black hexagonal pillars moving together in a serpent like shape with the front end being red. It tries to engulfs Evangelion 13, it later changes shape into a fetus-like being and is condensed into a core that is eaten by Evangelion 13 releasing the usual halo after the angel destruction , resulting in Kaworu Nagisa's demotion from first Angel to thirteenth.

Profile

Little else is known about the Angel, other than cryptic lines from Mari and Asuka, suggesting that they had encountered it before. Mari refers to it as the "Last Angel", and says that defeating it could cause something bad to occur. This is possibly why it was sealed instead of defeating it during the 14 year time gap.

It assumes the form of a giant Rei Ayanami after getting released and morphs into a giant embryo, resembling Sandalphon's embryonic stage, just before getting eaten by the Evangelion in form of a core.

Trivia

  • In its ball form the Angel resembles the original 12th angel Leliel from the Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series however once it unfurls and actually begins it’s attack it more closely resembles Armisael.
  • Strangely this Angel is listed as Twelfth instead of Eleventh implying the unseen 11th must have attacked between the events of 2.0 and 3.0.
