Personal Details
"Project Iron 3 outline: to build upon the achievements of Project Iron 2 and 1, improving the strength and abilities of the product, eliminating weaknesses and enhancing the equipment. The processes are fourfold: one, to increase the effect of genetic enhancements through the use of cultivated organs, hormonal manipulation and the insertion of genetic material taken from the Codename Ramliel corpse; two, to increase the effect of cybernetic implants through the perfection of the Strength, Toughness, Agility Graft (S-T-A-G) technology; three, upgrade power armour to provide enhanced strength, direct synchronization capabilities and greater damage absorption ability; four, upgrade weaponry to allow larger caliber shots and extra weight, as well as expanding the catalog."

"Project lead report, week one, day one. Ten subjects have been chosen (#20331 through #20340) from the recruitment pool. Subjects were chosen due to natural physical ability. Phase one begins tomorrow, with insertion of genetic enhancement."

"Project lead report, week two, day one. Of the ten subjects chosen, three (#20331, #20337, #20339) failed the first phase and were disposed. Cause of failure primarily due to emotional failings."

"Project lead report, week two, day four. Subject #20332 attempted to escape and was disposed. Subjects #20334 and #20336 show unimpressive results in their bodily adaption."

"Project lead report, week two, day seven. Subject #20340 suffered emotional breakdown, leading directly to removed from archive.. The result has been collected for later testing."

"Project lead report, week three, day two. Subjects #20334 and #20336 did not meet criteria for week three progress and were disposed."

"Project lead report, week three, day three. Final stages of implantation and manipulation underway. Subjects will be placed into artificial comas in order to adapt."

"Project lead report, week five, day one. Subject #20333 removed from archive. during coma. The result has been collected for later testing."

"Project lead report, week six, day four. Subjects have recovered from three week healing coma, showed signs of mental disorientation. Upon awaking, subject #20335 broke free of bonds, forcing the team to initiate lock-down procedures. Technician Masani was unable to escape in time; subject pursued and removed from archive.. Tranquilizers were deployed and the subject was placed into a safe-room."

"Project lead report, week eight, day two. Subjects have both fully recovered from genetic implants. Proceeding to phase two. Implantation of S-T-A-G cybernetics begin tomorrow."

"Project lead report, week nine, day one. Both subjects implanted with subdermal electroneural net with suit receptors. No issues."

"Project lead report, week nine, day two. Both subjects implanted with biometallic bone sheathing as well as cyber-ligament and small muscle replacement/augmentation in arms. No issues."

"Project lead report, week nine, day three. Both subjects implanted with organ shielding plating and internal tubing. No issues."

"Project lead report, week nine, day four. Both subjects implanted with biometallic bone sheathing and cyber-ligament and small muscle replacement/augmentation in legs. No issues."

"Project lead report, week nine, day five. Both subjects implanted with spinal cyber-synchronizers and nerve-networking replacements. Subject #20338 did not accept implants and was rendered completely paralyzed. Subject was disposed."

"Project lead report, week nine, day six. Subject #20335 implanted with final encephalo-augmentation suites and sensory packages. No issues."

"Project lead report, week nine, day seven. Subject #20335 shows no signs of failure. Project considered successful."

"Project Iron 3 summary: upgrades shown to be greatly effective, subject #20335 have a 102-120% increase in strength and durability as well as physical alacrity. Mental stability also preserved and even improved upon previous generations. Attrition rate of 90% considered well within acceptable parameters. Suggest moving on directly to Project Apostle 2 immediately."

NERV scientists tend to be tarred with the same brush when it comes to some matters. Many are fond of painting them all universally as madmen and madwomen who ignore ethics and morality and do whatever they please, to an almost comic level of evil. Needless to say, many NERV scientists are ordinary men and women working for a wage or sometimes out of fear; the truly 'mad' are rare indeed.

Even those NERV scientists cannot be truly portrayed as pure evil. They all work for their own goals which they see as (at least) being for the greater good; they acknowledge the wrongness of it and are willing to sacrifice themselves in the same way. They regret the necessity, but that is all. In any case, they quietly assuage their moral qualms with the acknowledgement that this has a purpose.

Then there's Barzilai Petrovitch Surov.

Surov was infamous even before Second Impact. Born in the USSR to an Israeli-Russian doll-maker father and a neurosurgeon mother, Surov was, from a young age, steeped in the art of taking things apart, making them better, and putting them back together again. His school marks were incomparable, and he blazed through education, a lone gleaming star without friends or, indeed, the compulsion to make any. At the age of fifteen he was already in university and well on his way to studying genetics and robotics.

Throughout the years, Surov seemed to spread out across multiple disciplines to the point of achieving the status of polymath; genetics, biology, computer science…

It was no surprise he was recruited by Gehirn to help on Project E. In fact, it is Surov who is to credit for designing the cybernetic-biological implants and restraints that are ubiquitous in every Evangelion unit. He also helped design the genetic enhancement packages for the NeoSpartans and the Companions.

When Azariah Caine split off from Gehirn, Surov went with him. In the employ of Eigenhart, he developed the first human augmentative implants, cybernetic replacement limbs and a variety of other technologies, sometimes developed through cold-blooded experimentation on living subjects. Ultimately he is the prime creator of the Iron Guard.

Surov is a name who strikes literal fear into every scientist who knows his name. Unlike them, with their own (twisted) brand of ethics, Surov is capable of astounding sociopathy when it comes to science, doing away with ethics and morality on a whim and taking to a task with pure logic.

Hyperadrenal System This implant augments and to an extent replaces the natural human adrenal system. If you take Critical Damage during a battle to your person, you gain Unnatural Strength and Toughness (1) until the end of the battle. -
Osteoplate This implant alters the composition of human bone to an extent impossible without Bioaugment Cores. The bone becomes much harder, taking on qualities often found in Surovite and other metals. Bony growths extend from the ribcage, turning it into a solid, thin plate of reinforced bone. You reduce all Critical Damage taken by 1, to a minimum of 1. -
Pulmonary Sheath This small covering acts as a filter for the lungs. So long as you possess it, you take a +20 to tests to resist toxic or maladaptive toxins, and you may breathe underwater. -
Redundant Heart The secondary heart is designed to operate in conjunction (and not as a replacement, although it definitely can) with a natural or bionic heart. You gain +2 wounds, and increase your fatigue threshold by one. -
Somniobsolesis Node This pea-sized implant sits nestled within the brain, and regulates your body's sleeping patterns, adapting and amplifying the effects of sleep. From now on, you only require four hours of sleep a night, and may ignore fatigue tests due to extended wakefulness for up to one week. The node also keeps enough of your mind awake at all times that you are, in some way, always alert. You gain the Light Sleeper talent. -
Statodermic Organ This organ sends special cells throughout the bloodstream, where they seek out open wounds. There, they form a thin, crusty layer over the injury. You automatically recover from blood loss after a single turn. You also gain a +20 bonus to tests made to resist the Crippling weapon quality. -
Synthetic Muscle Graft This ropey, elastic mush, made from organic and advanced synthetic components, is designed to complement natural musculature, greatly improving strength. You gain Unnatural Strength (1). -
Twitch Fiber Graft A combination of strong yet flexible ligaments and nervous system alterations, this process improves your reaction times and speed. You gain Unnatural Agility (1). -
