Personal Details
"Oh, this is a mess. A trillion dollar budget, the best minds in the world, the most advanced technology ever made and a mandate to save the human race and they can't even build a base properly."

Aoba Shigeru is the Chief Logistics Officer of AE-07. It's his job to ensure the supplies necessary for maintaining the unit are procured and sent to where they're needed. A highly efficient, focused person, he takes great care in laying out his logistical paths and plans, and hates it when they're ignored, misinterpreted or people just screw them up. He has very little patience for such things.

Shigeru was born on the 5th of May, 1989, the only child of Aoba Shichirou, one of Japan's wealthiest men. From a young age, Shigeru was exposed to other powerful people- politicians and the children of politicians, tycoons and the children of tycoons… He was immersed in issues of deal-making and commerce from a young age, as was to be expected- if he was to inherit, he'd need to learn the tools of the trade- how to run a business, and how to play nice when he meant nasty.

Impact changed everything as it so often did. Many businesses and industries were devastated, their power bases annihilated. The value of money and services dropped compared to labour and equipment and ability. Shigeru's own father perished during Impact, and he inherited… Chaos.

Naturally, others took advantage of this, but none other than Gehirn. They 'took' Aoba in, funneling money into his education as well as into the industries and companies he owned, both destroyed and functional. They quickly managed to rebuild and reach new heights of wealth and power… But this was power directed by Gehirn through Aoba.

Never one to waste a good resource, they trained Aoba in economics, bureaucracy and large-scale logistics with the intent to incorporate him into NERV, where his contacts and abilities might be useful. In 2013, this came to fruition and he was added to the Operations Staff of Tokyo-2. He has since performed commendably.

Most of Aoba's life has been decided for him by people he cannot question, and from an early age he was surrounded by liars, toadies and deceivers. As a result he's a very cynical man, skeptical of the power of technology to solve man's problems and with a rather depressing, nihilistic outlook. He has no family, no partner and very few friends outside of work and his band.

If there's one thing Aoba can work up a passion for, it's music. He loves music, loves listening to it and playing it, and his guitar is one of his most prized possessions. He's even in a heavy metal band called "Spooky Tanuki", who've done a few low-key bar gigs here and there in Tokyo-2.
