Epilogue Roll

[21:16] <AdEvaGM> [The story is over.]
[21:20] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:20] <AdEvaGM> [The characters are not.-
[21:21] <AdEvaGM> [Ginevre Fontaine.-
[21:21] <AdEvaGM> [After the war had ended, Fontaine enjoyed a quiet existence by herself, taking in the sights of a revitalised world and visiting old friends.-
[21:21] <AdEvaGM> [… For awhile.-
[21:22] <AdEvaGM> [Eventually, the Federation stabilised, and its technology advanced enough to manifest the 'new' methods of embodying an Evangelion.-
[21:22] <AdEvaGM> [And when that happened, it was decided that a new corps of Evangelions would be made for the public good. A corps that needed a director.-
[21:22] <AdEvaGM> [Fontaine accepted.-
[21:23] <AdEvaGM> [She still has her chair.-
[21:23] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:23] <AdEvaGM> [Lucille Dupont.-
[21:24] <AdEvaGM> [Lucille remained as the Secretary to the Chancellor of the Twiceborn Federation for the next eighty-four years. In that time, she was known by four Chancellors.-
[21:24] <AdEvaGM> [She was the terror of each and every one of them.-
[21:24] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:24] <AdEvaGM> [Hannelore Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen.-
[21:25] <AdEvaGM> [Hannelore resigned so quickly, she practically left a hole in the wall.-
[21:25] <AdEvaGM> [She returned to her university, where she lived a happy, blissful military-free life.-
[21:26] <AdEvaGM> [She no longer gets drunk. Apparently, 'getting drunk' is hard with the Twiceborn biology.-
[21:26] <AdEvaGM> [That doesn't stop her from trying.-
[21:26] <AdEvaGM> [But for fun, now.-
[21:26] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:26] <AdEvaGM> [Ariadne Delacour.-
[21:28] <AdEvaGM> [Ariadne Delacour remained in the Federation diplomatic service for a few years, up until the August Incident, which saw the final collapse of anti-Federation sentiment amidst the remaining holdout governments. She resigned, and successfully ran for the French Presidency, which she presided over until its formal dissolution in 2029.-
[21:28] <AdEvaGM> [She happily re-married Dorian Lachapelle. He's never been happier and less willing to admit it.-
[21:28] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:29] <AdEvaGM> [Jeanne Simon found a nice job in Starfleet Intelligence, and remains there to this day. They try to make her resign sometimes.-
[21:30] <AdEvaGM> [They have yet to succeed.-
[21:30] <AdEvaGM> [She's developed a taste for a certain bakery, too…-
[21:30] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:31] <AdEvaGM> [Ban-Ban.-
[21:31] <AdEvaGM> [Ban-Ban returned as a human being, adopting his 'illusory' form as his true physical form. Unlike others, he possesses the ability to revert to his powerful banshee form at will.-
[21:32] <AdEvaGM> [In 2032, Ban-Ban was named Poet Laureate of the Federation, and takes especial delight in learning poetry in as many languages as possible.-
[21:32] <AdEvaGM> [He has yet to settle down, instead cultivating a reputation as a flirtatious playboy.-
[21:32] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:33] <AdEvaGM> [Bruce Savage.-
[21:33] <AdEvaGM> [Bruce chose to reincarnate.-
[21:33] <AdEvaGM> [He felt it was the fairest option for everyone- including himself.-
[21:33] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:34] <AdEvaGM> [Jean-Baptiste Vimes.-
[21:34] <AdEvaGM> [Vimes was overjoyed to have all of his dead family return to life. Much to Yanmei's chagrin, he resigned from his job a month later and took up a cushy civic police job in Paris.-
[21:34] <AdEvaGM> [In his spare time, he enjoys cooking.-
[21:34] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:35] <AdEvaGM> [Eevi Nieminen.-
[21:35] <AdEvaGM> [Eevi's true parents returned. Free of her Iron Guard trappings, she lived a happy and joyful life with her parents, although she never forgot the kindness of Rei Ayanami, Zhang Yanmei and Raphael Guillory.-
[21:36] <AdEvaGM> [She now works in the Ministry of Justice and Reconciliation.-
[21:36] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:36] <AdEvaGM> [Tsukino Haruki.-
[21:36] <AdEvaGM> [Tsukino Haruki left the Presidential Guard asking only one request: a stun baton capable of piercing an AT Field.-
[21:37] <AdEvaGM> [He returned to Japan, where he made firmly sure that the yakuza remained a thing of the past.-
[21:37] <AdEvaGM> [If you're an Ayanami's child, though, and you're in Tokyo, and you find a young man with old eyes and long tales, he might just challenge you to a duel- and if you win, he'll tell you all about the stupid shit your parents did back in the day.-
[21:38] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:38] <AdEvaGM> [Daji, the fox.-
[21:38] <AdEvaGM> [Daji remained with the Zhangs, her lifespan easily that of a human being's. She became a mother. Then a grandmother. Then a great-grandmother, and more, generations of beautiful, devious foxes, swindling stupid humans out of their food.-
[21:38] <AdEvaGM> [Yip yip.-
[21:39] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:41] <AdEvaGM> [Kenzo Tenma.-
[21:41] <AdEvaGM> [Kenzo retook his real name: Hinata Sasaki- and became a full-time doctor back in Japan.-
[21:42] <AdEvaGM> [He married Casey Cole in 2023. They don't see each other as much as they'd like, but when they meet, they have fun counting the stars Casey's been to in person.-
[21:42] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:42] <AdEvaGM> [Victor Clement.-
[21:43] <AdEvaGM> [Victor Clement was reunited with his daughter, Elena, and his wife. Together, after awhile travelling the world, Victor was approached by Alexandre and Asuka Fontaine-Soryu, and given a special offer…-
[21:43] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:44] <AdEvaGM> [Felix Castillo-Delgado.-
[21:44] <AdEvaGM> [The first thing Felix did on returning from the Gestalt was kiss his wife and kids.-
[21:44] <AdEvaGM> [The second thing he did was take them all on a holiday to London. There, he found a bar, where the Rolling Stones once played, where nice cuban cigars were sold and the whiskey flowed like the water off Niagara Falls.-
[21:45] <AdEvaGM> [Some say he's still out there, smoking and drinking his way through life, touching everyone he meets with his sincerity, kindness, and sheer joy.-
[21:45] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:45] <AdEvaGM> [Barzilai Surov.-
[21:45] <AdEvaGM> [There would be no coming back for Navah and Barzilai.-
[21:46] <AdEvaGM> [He had done too much.-
[21:46] <AdEvaGM> [The barrier of indifference he had kept up came down, and he cried, for what felt like years, at his crimes.-
[21:46] <AdEvaGM> [And then he and Navah took each other's hands and made a promise:-
[21:46] <AdEvaGM> [They would return. And this time, they'd do it right.-
[21:47] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:47] <AdEvaGM> [Luna Riel.-
[21:47] <AdEvaGM> [Luna Riel left as well, reincarnating into the well of humanity.-
[21:47] <AdEvaGM> [Before she left, she took the time to apologise directly to every last NeoSpartan. She never asked their forgiveness.-
[21:47] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:48] <AdEvaGM> [Yui Ikari.-
[21:48] <AdEvaGM> [Yui came back, where she spent her days enjoying the new paradise her efforts had helped to make.-
[21:49] <AdEvaGM> [She works as a Professor of Metaphysics at the University of Kyoto.-
[21:49] <AdEvaGM> [Every so often, she has a chance to meet a new grandchild. She dotes on them, and makes sure that they learn one special thing before they leave:-
[21:49] <AdEvaGM> [Her very own curry recipe.-
[21:50] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:50] <AdEvaGM> [Yutada Ikari.-
[21:50] <AdEvaGM> [The men of Seele left, and Yutada Ikari was no exception.-
[21:50] <AdEvaGM> [He chose to reincarnate, however…-
[21:50] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:51] <AdEvaGM> [Ritsuko Akagi.-
[21:52] <AdEvaGM> [Ritsuko spent the first ten years of the New Era travelling the world, helping to set up power plants that provided clean, cheap energy.-
[21:52] <AdEvaGM> [None worked as hard as she did at this task, and to this day, you can still find statues to the Lady of Light.-
[21:52] <AdEvaGM> [She hates the name.-
[21:53] <AdEvaGM> [You'll often find her hanging out at a bakery in France, where she pretends to buy a good, then settles for a pack of cigarettes.-
[21:53] <AdEvaGM> [The bakery sells cigarettes?-
[21:53] <AdEvaGM> [No. It does not.-
[21:53] <AdEvaGM> [But for her…-
[21:53] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:53] <AdEvaGM> [Mortimer Mazarin.-
[21:54] <AdEvaGM> [Mortimer returned to the presidency of France, but it was obvious that it had lost its lustre. Within two years, he was voted out of office, and replaced by Martin Pierre Villeneuve.-
[21:54] <AdEvaGM> [He was reunited with his resurrected life, and they now work together as lawyers on Lunar Berlin.-
[21:54] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:55] <AdEvaGM> [Martin Pierre Villeneuve.-
[21:55] <AdEvaGM> [Villeneuve swept into power on the backs of a France tired of war and of disunity. But before long he was challenging Zhang Yanmei's authority.-
[21:56] <AdEvaGM> [He cultivated an international axis of states opposed to the Federation. This led to the August Incident, where he attempted to critically weaken the Federation's authority.-
[21:56] <AdEvaGM> [This resulted in talks with Chiisana Ayanami. The talks ended when Chiisana played her trump card: the Federation had cracked how to rebuild Evangelions, and she demonstrated this by literally transforming into one before the leaders of the axis.-
[21:57] <AdEvaGM> [In the chaos that followed, Villeneuve fled the country as France's people openly revolted against the government.-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> [The Federation granted him amnesty, eventually, and he now lives quietly on Avalon, the 4th colony.-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> [Ambroise Dupont.-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> [He was mayor of Paris.-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> [He stopped being mayor of Paris.-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> […-
[21:58] <AdEvaGM> [Leonid Kuzmin.-
[21:59] <AdEvaGM> [The brash, lecherous Premier of the USSR returned to life, helping to rebuild the humiliated Russia. Despite efforts from those within his country, Kuzmin kept his people out of the anti-Federation axis, knowing that the ideals of his fallen government would be far easier to meet with the Federation, and not without.-
[21:59] <AdEvaGM> [The last time he met asuka Soryu-Fontaine, she broke his nose.-
[22:00] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:00] <AdEvaGM> [Zhou Xunhan.-
[22:00] <AdEvaGM> [Zhou Xunhan reincarnated. He was not missed.-
[22:00] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:00] <AdEvaGM> [Shinji Ikari.-
[22:02] <AdEvaGM> [Shinji became one of the first 'new' Evangelions, where he and his wife Aline spend their time leading the Terraforming Division.-
[22:02] <AdEvaGM> [Other people seek out new worlds. Shinji makes them.-
[22:02] <AdEvaGM> [… IS what he says to nearly everyone, much to the humiliation of his children.-
[22:03] <AdEvaGM> [Secretly, he leaves little 'surprises' in his worlds, so that one day, hundreds or thousands of years from how, the descendants of colonists will dig deep and find, etched into 'natural' cave walls across the known galaxy…-
[22:03] <AdEvaGM> [Odes to his goddess, with rocks that play music like a cello.-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> [Ezekiel.-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> [Ezekiel went with Adam.-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> [But he was never forgotten on Earth…-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> [Celestyn Wilwudski.-
[22:04] <AdEvaGM> [When Vercingetorix disbanded, Wilwudski got all the material possessions, like the boat and the chateau.-
[22:05] <AdEvaGM> [To this day, he excitedly leads people to that chateau, points to the floor, and proclaims "That's where Gendo Ikari showed Raphael Guillory the glass trick!"-
[22:05] <AdEvaGM> [For whatever reason, no one seems to get why he cares so much.-
[22:05] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:05] <AdEvaGM> [Zeruel, the Defender of the Accused.-
[22:06] <AdEvaGM> [Zeruel went with Adam.-
[22:06] <AdEvaGM> [But she was not forgotten either.-
[22:06] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:06] <AdEvaGM> [Ramiel, the Warmaster.-
[22:06] <AdEvaGM> [Ramiel, too, went with Adam. And he remains fresh in the memory of all, especially one particular girl…-
[22:07] <AdEvaGM> [To this day, the most heavily armed, armoured, and immovable battlestations bear his name.-
[22:07] <AdEvaGM> [He would laugh, if he knew.-
[22:07] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:08] <AdEvaGM> [Jesiah 'Blue' Bergeron.-
[22:08] <AdEvaGM> [Blue's mind was set free in the Gestalt, his body healed completely of the corrupting screwups that had broken his brain.-
[22:09] <AdEvaGM> [He kept to his promise. He keeps the bar on the Dorian Lachapelle, and there is almost no one, from the marines to the fleet staff, in the Starfleet who has not met Blue, the Bartender of Space.-
[22:09] <AdEvaGM> [He settled down, though. He married Matthias Holmstrom. It was a normal wedding, but he told the Guillories it was fancy dress.-
[22:09] <AdEvaGM> [He laughed a lot.-
[22:09] <AdEvaGM> [He's still laughing now.-
[22:10] <AdEvaGM> [And the fact that he laughs instead of curses is a miracle.-
[22:10] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:10] <AdEvaGM> [Medea Leona.-
[22:11] <AdEvaGM> [Medea spent her first few years travelling the world, seeing the sights, and soaking in the atmosphere of the new era.-
[22:11] <AdEvaGM> [But the day would come when she was approached by Asuka and Alexandre, about a special new plan…-
[22:11] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:12] <AdEvaGM> [Arthur Gamaliel Chelmondely.-
[22:12] <AdEvaGM> [Arthur "The Brofessor" Chelmondely spent the first few years of his life gleefully crushing organised crime in Europe, what remained of it at any rate.-
[22:13] <AdEvaGM> [Now he works as an interstellar trader- a trader who always seems to be just a little faster, and a lot richer, than his rivals.-
[22:14] <AdEvaGM> [He never really struck things up with Vera, but he takes a lot of time to spend time with his daughter Sol, giving her little toys and treats from the Outer Sphere.-
[22:14] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:14] <AdEvaGM> [The Melbourne Gangers.-
[22:15] <AdEvaGM> [The gang system never survived Gestalt. Fortunately, it didn't have to: most of the gangers had died in the war.-
[22:15] <AdEvaGM> [The ones that remained mostly migrated to the Immortal Colonies, the only place in the Federation where being a hard barstard was the way to be.-
[22:15] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:15] <AdEvaGM> [Seele.-
[22:16] <AdEvaGM> [The Old Men of Seele were never seen again.-
[22:16] <AdEvaGM> [Some went with Lilith; others reincarnated…-
[22:16] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:16] <AdEvaGM> [Euphemia One.-
[22:17] <AdEvaGM> [Euphemia One spent ten years in a state of penance for her crimes. When she was released, she was given an offer from Alexandre and Asuka- and took it.-
[22:17] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:18] <AdEvaGM> [The Empress of Another Earth.-
[22:19] <AdEvaGM> [The Empress Chiisana's duty was charged. With no reason left to stay, she petitioned the Exarch for a special request. He granted it- and she returned home.-
[22:19] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:19] <AdEvaGM> [Isabelle and Adrian Bellamy.-
[22:19] <AdEvaGM> [It broke their hearts.-
[22:20] <AdEvaGM> [But they were tired. Tired and sore from existing as they had.-
[22:20] <AdEvaGM> [They said goodbye to their beloved daughter one last time and- trusting her to capable hands- left with Lilith, to new existences.-
[22:20] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:20] <AdEvaGM> [Uncle Zhang and Auntie Cai.-
[22:21] <AdEvaGM> [Yanmei's aunt and uncle returned to life, and like many old people, did so not as old people, but as people in their prime. They promptly went on a several-year long cruise, paid for by their niece.-
[22:22] <AdEvaGM> [On returning to China, they went back to their lives, living happily on their farm, growing delicious food and offering generously to anyone they met.-
[22:22] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:22] <AdEvaGM> [Zhang Lingyu.-
[22:23] <AdEvaGM> [The shy little girl who had hidden from Yanmei had been unbelievably influenced by meeting her 'big sister'. She decided to follow in her footsteps, becoming Evangelion #43.-
[22:24] <AdEvaGM> [Known as the 'Second Coming of Fireball Zhang', she is feared and admired across the Starfleet for her sheer destructive power and her unbelievably cute nature in equal measure.-
[22:25] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:25] <AdEvaGM> [Zhang Xiumin.-
[22:26] <AdEvaGM> [Ambitious young Zhang Xiumin graduated with high honours, and went on to become a famous scientist, working with the Lunar Jerusalem Foundation.-
[22:26] <AdEvaGM> [There, she helped design a Superheavy with a frame made of trace sigilite and soulstone, allowing for the first truly mass-produced AT Field Superheavy: the Dominion.-
[22:27] <AdEvaGM> [She is insanely wealthy, and insufferably smart, and decides to spoil Yanmei's children in the worst ways imaginable.-
[22:27] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:27] <AdEvaGM> [Zheng Zhengsheng.-
[22:28] <AdEvaGM> [Zhengshang married the Simonides sisters a few years into the New Era, where he went into engineering with Sophia. Eventually, he and his partners would be approached by Alexandre and Asuka on a special offer, which he could not possibly turn down…-
[22:28] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:29] <AdEvaGM> [Lucas Guillory and Emma Calland-Guillory.-
[22:31] <AdEvaGM> [Lucas was healed to perfect health after the Gestalt, and took good advantage of it. Emma, on the other hand, was happy to work in a world where the odds on her schoolhouse being shelled were not 1-in-a-hundred.-
[22:34] <AdEvaGM> [Ultimately, they emigrated to the Seven Sisters System- a true gem of a system where they had found and terraformed a total of seven planets habitable for humanity. There was plenty of work, and children, to engage in. The fact that one of the planets had been given the naming theme 'Heroes of the Federation (not Evangelions)' definitely helped, and to this day, Emma has to sigh and say yes, she -is- in fact related to the Guillory-as-in-Guillory-City.-
[22:35] <AdEvaGM> [Some of those children are their own, of course- between them, they have a total of five so far, and the number can always get bigger before long.-
[22:35] <AdEvaGM> [But most importantly, they're simply happy…-
[22:35] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:35] <AdEvaGM> [Suzanne Sartre-Guillory.-
[22:36] <AdEvaGM> [There is no more marketable Superheavy Ace in the Federation than Suzanne Sartre-Guillory.-
[22:36] <AdEvaGM> [They knew there was a problem when Suzanne emerged from the Gestalt, met her parents, then walked over to Raphael and, staring him square in the eye, fired a five-milimetre-wide positron beam directly up into the air.-
[22:37] <AdEvaGM> [Problem for other people. For Suzanne, it was the chance of a lifetime.-
[22:38] <AdEvaGM> [Suzanne joined the Starfleet as soon as she possibly could, becoming one of the first Superheavy Cadets. She quickly rose through the ranks for her confidence, competence, and sheer force of will.-
[22:39] <AdEvaGM> [She pilots one of a handful of Custom Heavies- namely the G-Defiant Harmony, a blood-red unit whose engine wash is so bright, it can be seen on the ground if she's in low orbit.-
[22:41] <AdEvaGM> [When war broke out with the Shrinepath Devoted- humanity's first interstellar war- she fought with distinction. In fact, before long she had become a tool of psychological warfare, with her powerful AT Field lasers and her distinctive red Superheavy turning her into a fleet-killing monstrosity. The Devoted named her "The Sickle of God."-
[22:42] <AdEvaGM> [She is in a relationship with Oskar Soryu-Fontaine, which has proven to be an extremely… Disruptive relationship for anyone nearby. The two are exactly as stubborn and driven as each other.-
[22:43] <AdEvaGM> [She still has time for her dads, of course. Namely, she buzzes him in the Harmony whenever she gets the chance. If he doesn't leave a plate out for the Harmony's AC Suit at Christmas and Gestalt Day? She riots.-
[22:43] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:43] <AdEvaGM> [Caitlin was given the option and took it, reverting back to her original childlike form.-
[22:45] <AdEvaGM> [But she still had her memories and experiences. As she grew up, she went into history and became the leading expert on the Angelic War. She works with Aline Blanc as part of a plan to find and retrieve the Library of the Ancestors- wherever it is. For now, Caitlin turns to the ancient texts of the Shangri-Lese.-
[22:45] <AdEvaGM> [She eats free at Roku's restaurant, and whenever she goes home for Christmas, she and Suzanne cause utter havoc for everyone around them.-
[22:45] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:45] <AdEvaGM> [Henriette Mazarin.-
[22:46] <AdEvaGM> [Henriette was nearly killed in the August Incident. But 'nearly' is not 'actually', and people learned quickly that if you intend to kill Henriette Mazarin, you need to do a complete job.-
[22:48] <AdEvaGM> [Whilst the Federation was desperately researching the tech to recreate Evas, Henriette was busy infiltrating the Axis, stealing the locations of their leaders and uncovering hidden caches of AI-driven Superheavies. This nearly got her killed in the process, but she survived, and hunted the fugitives with a terrifying, Javert-like mercilessness.-
[22:49] <AdEvaGM> [After that she went into politics, eventually serving as the 2nd Prime Minister of the Federation, then its 3rd Chancellor, where she led the Federation through a desperate engagement with the Overseer Empire.-
[22:52] <AdEvaGM> [By the end of it, though, the Prime Minister of the Empire, Lord Aura-of-Delightful-Strength, grudgingly acknowledged her by having her name carved into the Records of Alarm, where the names of all the great enemies of the Empire are kept.-
[22:52] <AdEvaGM> […-
[22:53] <AdEvaGM> [Freya Solheim.-
[22:55] <AdEvaGM> [Freya's first act was to help 'oversee' Sera's bakery. Mostly it was an excuse to hang around with her bestest friend, share in fresh goods, lobby fruitlessly for sausage rolls and keep base with the infuriating stream of old friends who make it their very job to visit Sera's quiet, no-busy, out-of-the-way bakery.-
[22:57] <AdEvaGM> [When she decided to 'get on with it', though, she ultimately went into heavy industry, running the Thruster Unity Collective, a major supplier of Superheavies and arms to the Federation- as well as the maker of civilian spacecraft and clean cars.-
[22:57] <AdEvaGM> [She still makes a habit of visiting Sera daily. In fact, she learned how to Dirac jump just for this.-
[22:58] <AdEvaGM> [She never really did end up finding a 'cute boy' through Sera.-
[23:00] <AdEvaGM> [Freya ended up becoming reasonably popular amongst the Defector community, and since then her industries have partnered with some of the ad hoc machinist groups the Defectors operated, applying their expertise and extreme ability to jury-rig anything to good effect.-
[23:01] <AdEvaGM> [A rare Defector translation mishap resulted in her being named "Sunny Owl", a name that she has taken to with great enthusiasm.-
[23:01] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:02] <AdEvaGM> [Viviane wandered for awhile, learning to play music in a very natural, flowing yet traditional fashion: of finding a master and jamming with them for awhile.-
[23:04] <AdEvaGM> [She also periodically puts on a show at Blue's Bar and at Sera's bakery, two places where she's always welcome and always feels happy.-
[23:05] <AdEvaGM> [For Viviane, the ghosts of the past remain ghosts. Her urge to slaughter never returned.-
[23:05] <AdEvaGM> [She, too, is happy.-
[23:05] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:05] <AdEvaGM> [Malachi Ansel.-
[23:05] <AdEvaGM> [The Great Dickhead of Space continued to be a dickhead, except now in space.-
[23:06] <AdEvaGM> [A normal job was too much expectation for Ansel. He entered Starfleet Intelligence and never looked back.-
[23:07] <AdEvaGM> [He sometimes hits on Freya, but only when he knows Sera will hear.-
[23:07] <AdEvaGM> [He doesn't know why Sera gets angry at him when he asks for a sausage roll.-
[23:07] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:07] <AdEvaGM> [Marianne Amatore-DeForest.-
[23:08] <AdEvaGM> [After the war, Marianne went into business with Juno Winter, creating DeForest-Winter Industries, a Franco-German heavy industry and Superheavy manufacturer.-
[23:08] <AdEvaGM> [At the moment, two of her designs are in use by the Superheavy Corps, and DeForest-Winter have done much to further the use of fusion weaponry.-
[23:09] <AdEvaGM> [Marianne's entire family returned from the Gestalt, and she was extremely happy- an important part of her life had been returned. She would never admit how truly tempted she had been to leave with Lilith.-
[23:09] <AdEvaGM> [But now, hand-in-hand with her adoring partner Juno, Marianne keeps at it, living her best life.-
[23:10] <AdEvaGM> [She makes sure to ring Yanmei every weekend.-
[23:10] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:10] <AdEvaGM> [Casey Cole.-
[23:11] <AdEvaGM> [Casey joined the military, and to this day remains one of the best capital ship navigators going. In fact, she has long since stopped piloting and now teaches Navigation and Stellar Cartography at the Academy.-
[23:12] <AdEvaGM> [Every so often, she swaps out for a few months, replacing teaching with piloting, just to make sure she keeps in top nick- but mostly because she loves seeing new stars and planets.-
[23:13] <AdEvaGM> [She married Tenma, AKA Hinata Sasaki, and have a single child, named Michael Cole-Sasaki, who contrary to either of his parents' own paths, became a xeno-oceanologist.-
[23:13] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:13] <AdEvaGM> [Cornelia Archibald.-
[23:14] <AdEvaGM> [Archibald serves as Solar Admiral of the 2nd Outer Sphere Fleet, which was a particularly satisfying outcome for someone who had been told would never make anything more than a line officer.-
[23:15] <AdEvaGM> [The 2nd Outer Sphere Fleet bore the brunt of the fighting against the Shrinepath Devoted, and Archibald earned much accolades for her service on board her very own Achaemenes-class Dreadnought, the Zhang Yanmei.-
[23:17] <AdEvaGM> [In the gestalt, she came to terms with the fact that she was perfectly happy and satisfied with who she was and her asexuality. Even though it had been forced on her, she now told the Exarch that she had a choice, the choice, and she chose what felt truly like herself.-
[23:18] <AdEvaGM> [She still enjoys a cuddle. And she still loves whales. When she found out that the seas had been repopulated with whales, she cried for a full hour.-
[23:18] <AdEvaGM> [She will punish anyone who mentions it.-
[23:18] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:18] <AdEvaGM> [Fredéric Gosselin.-
[23:20] <AdEvaGM> [Fréderic remained with the Federation military for a few decades after the end of the war, serving as the Captain of the Gendo Ikari for much of that time. Like many heroes of the War, Fredéric ultimately left active service and took up a teaching position at the Academy, where he teaches in Starship Command and Personal Combat.-
[23:20] <AdEvaGM> [He is still extremely happily married to his wife Sophie, and they had four more children after Patrice.-
[23:20] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:20] <AdEvaGM> [James Riel.-
[23:21] <AdEvaGM> [James returned to life, sorrowing over the loss of his sister. For some time he was bitter and resentful, blaming others for 'driving' his sister away.-
[23:21] <AdEvaGM> [Then he vanished. For years, no one heard anything from him.-
[23:23] <AdEvaGM> [And then one day he simply reappeared in Zhang Yanmei's office and gave her plans for a new and improved supercomputer to age the increasingly unreliable MAGI. The new supercomputer was called the Simurgh, and James claimed he had managed to mimic some of the ability Kourosh Rustami had shown.-
[23:23] <AdEvaGM> [Then he broke down and talked at length of how alienated he felt without his sister, feeling strangely lost in this new world.-
[23:25] <AdEvaGM> [… But eventually, things mended for James. The 'community' of veterans took him in and rehabilitated him. He reconnected with an old schoolfriend, Christina, and the two fell in together. He now works full-time in the information technology industry.-
[23:25] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:26] <AdEvaGM> [Sophie Gagnier.-
[23:26] <AdEvaGM> [Sophie left the military shortly after Gestalt, and spent a few years off raising her children and helping Aline with various matters. Eventually, Sophie was recruited by the Evangelion Corps, where Sophie instantly signed on to work in Terraforming, helping to coordinate with her dear old friend.-
[23:27] <AdEvaGM> [She stayed happily married to Fréderic, having five children with him so far. She still has dinner with her uncle Morty sometimes.-
[23:27] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:27] <AdEvaGM> [Kourosh Rustami.-
[23:28] <AdEvaGM> [Kourosh had been tempted to reincarnate, but he agreed to return. He was asked to keep serving as Prime Minister, which he did.-
[23:29] <AdEvaGM> [In his extremely long tenure as Prime Minister, Kourosh was a driving force, helping to organise the Federation and turning its ideals into practical realities. His eccentric personality only accentuated his legend, and to this day, the office of Prime Minister is still- out of respect- referred to as "Kou's Spot".-
[23:29] <AdEvaGM> [He also took a great role in revitalising the Zoroastrian faith after the Gestalt, although he stopped short of joining the priesthood.-
[23:30] <AdEvaGM> [He faithfully served his Chancellor, and to his happiness, both are alive. But he found a love greater than the loyal love for his Chancellor.-
[23:31] <AdEvaGM> [Kourosh did end up marrying Go after all, and the two loved each other with a sheer devotion that is, frankly, embarrassing. They have nine children together.-
[23:31] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:31] <AdEvaGM> [Prefect Han.-
[23:33] <AdEvaGM> [In the Gestalt, Prefect Han was faced with a terrifying reality: he was forced to confront every single person he had ever heard, and was exposed to the sheer hatred humanity had for him.-
[23:33] <AdEvaGM> [He nearly reincarnated.-
[23:33] <AdEvaGM> [But one person's words stuck with him: "You always take the easy option. Why don't you do the hard thing and live for once?"-
[23:34] <AdEvaGM> [The words of his dear mother drove Han to tears.-
[23:35] <AdEvaGM> [When he returned, he absolutely changed. He gave up his luxuries and joined a monastery.-
[23:35] <AdEvaGM> [There, he mediated on the nature of social justice and redemption for many years. When he returned, he spent decades helping to heal instead of harm.-
[23:36] <AdEvaGM> [To this day, you will sometimes find Prefect Han on the road, wearing his old robe, travelling along on a motorcycle that he tunes and fixes himself.-
[23:36] <AdEvaGM> [Wherever he goes, he preaches peace, harmony, and understanding of one's fellow man.-
[23:36] <AdEvaGM> [He has never, ever been happier than he is now.-
[23:36] <AdEvaGM> [Truly, he has finally become Perfect Han.-
[23:36] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:39] <AdEvaGM> [Feng.-
[23:40] <AdEvaGM> [The great phoenix still lives, singing his song that humans find strangely comforting. His constant appearance around Rustami and Zhang came to see people associate him with the Federation. Ultimately, Feng's likeness was adopted as the official emblem of the Office of the Chancellor of the Twiceborn Federation.-
[23:42] <AdEvaGM> [When each of Yanmei and Isaiah's new children were born, Feng would show up two weeks later, sing them his song, and leave a snippet of jade in their beds.-
[23:42] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:43] <AdEvaGM> [Alphonse Wellesley.-
[23:44] <AdEvaGM> [Alphonse became Solar Admiral of the Home Systems Fleet, the largest fleet dedicated to protecting Earth, the Solar System and the nearest stars. He is one of the most well-respected officers there is, and his leadership during the Shrinepath Devoted War and the clash with the Overseer Empire was highly praised. He now commands the Dorian Lachapelle, where he makes sure the art is always tasteless, and Blue can always cook him an unhealthy meal.-
[23:45] <AdEvaGM> [Alphonse, surprising no one, married Rei shortly after the war, in a beautiful ceremony. They are still extremely happy together, and have seven children, not including Ban-Ban.-
[23:45] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:45] <AdEvaGM> [Augustus Harken.-
[23:49] <AdEvaGM> [When Augustus Harken returned to earth, no one would've recognised him if it hadn't been for the Gestalt. Augustus had been an old, fierce man in his seventies, but when he returned, he was a devastatingly handsome men of thirty, with rich copper-brown wavy hair, astonishingly clear blue eyes, and the ability to make his moustache work.-
[23:49] <AdEvaGM> [His sole purpose in life is to ruin Asuka's day. At least, if you ask Asuka.-
[23:50] <AdEvaGM> [In truth, he spends much of his time working on Asuka and Alex's special project, and has developed a reputation as one of the most ferocious personal combat fighters in the Federation.-
[23:51] <AdEvaGM> ["The joy of the AT Field is that you don't need to worry about all those bullets. Not that I ever did. Bottoms up!"-
[23:54] <AdEvaGM> [His family returned, too- not just Wilhelm, but his son and wife as well.-
[23:54] <AdEvaGM> […-
[23:55] <AdEvaGM> [Misato Katsuragi.-
[23:56] <AdEvaGM> [Misato remained with the military for a few years, helping to organise it; she commanded the Gendo Ikari during her tenure, her attempts to rename it Enterprise being vetoed sixteen times by the Ministry of Defense.-
[23:56] <AdEvaGM> [They mollified her by promising that the 5th Achaemenes would bear her name. It does.-
[23:57] <AdEvaGM> [The Achaemenes are named after great leaders, and she had earned that honor. By the time she left, Misato was one of the most beloved officers of legend the Starfleet had ever had.-
Session Time: Sun Dec 31 00:00:01 2017
[00:01] <AdEvaGM> [But after that, she went into civilian exploration. When NASA was merged with the unified Federation Stellar Exploration Administration, she joined it as one of its first mission directors, where she pioneered much of the structure, and led surveys of 600 systems, two of which are named after her.-
[00:02] <AdEvaGM> [She married Raphael a few years after Gestalt. It was a tropical wedding, but a mix of "Did I really agree to this?!" and petitions from others brought it down to a swimsuit wedding.-
[00:03] <AdEvaGM> [… Which then earned complaints from people who had been really excited about the nude wedding, so it ultimately became a swimsuit-optional wedding. Most of the guests wore suits, ultimately.-
[00:03] <AdEvaGM> [(Kourosh Rustami did not.)-
[00:04] <AdEvaGM> [She and Raphael live together, spending their free time going on time-and-cash-unlimited dates, watching movies, raising their child, and quietly enjoying, with deep contentment, the circle of friends and family they now have.-
[00:05] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:05] <AdEvaGM> [Makoto Hyuga-Ayanami.-
[00:07] <AdEvaGM> [Makoto joined Starfleet Intelligence, becoming its Director in 2025. He was instrumental in finally fully integrating the Defectors into the organisation, partially because for whatever reason, the Defectors found him extremely charming.-
[00:07] <AdEvaGM> ["Twiceborn are ~bad speakers~, but he… He is not so much a ~bad speaker~."-
[00:08] <AdEvaGM> [He remains director, his affable personality and seeming harmlessness hiding… An affable personality, and a whole lot of competence with a whole lot of power, which he uses wisely.-
[00:08] <AdEvaGM> [He married Chiisana, and the couple have four children together. Being married to a living goddess seems strange to some, but to Makoto, he wouldn't have it any other way.-
[00:08] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:09] <AdEvaGM> [Aoba Shigeru.-
[00:09] <AdEvaGM> [Aoba reincarnated.-
[00:09] <AdEvaGM> [Spuuki Tanuki lives on.-
[00:09] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:12] <AdEvaGM> [Maya Ibuki.-
[00:12] <AdEvaGM> [Maya was free to devote herself to her passion: new and dangerous forms of science, handled with care.-
[00:14] <AdEvaGM> [She was key in the process of enabling new Evangelions, and so for a few years served with the Eva Corps. She eventually left, however, to work as part of the Starfleet Vessel Design Bureau at its Cydonian Fleet Yards on Mars.-
[00:14] <AdEvaGM> [And then left again to immerse herself in the Defector community, who happily welcomed her.-
[00:15] <AdEvaGM> [Less welcome was Maya's passionate push to 'unlock the true potential of the AT Field', which saw Maya trying to see just how many average things she could handle at once with her AT Field. Her record is forty-three things at once.-
[00:16] <AdEvaGM> [Her attempt to teach this to Defector children had interesting results: Defectors do not have AT Fields, and instead power their Fields by eating immense amounts of food for their hyperactive metabolisms to turn into energy. Maya essentially left whole clusters of Defector children in endless cycles of ravenous hunger.-
[00:16] <AdEvaGM> [The Defectors forgave her, though.-
[00:17] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:17] <AdEvaGM> [Minerva Linden.-
[00:19] <AdEvaGM> [Minerva continued her reformation of American society, ultimately finishing its transformation into the 'New United States'. Although the sovereignty of the US would be dissolved only several years later, she left a legacy of considerate, well-thought-out laws, an organic, evolving constitution and an ironclad set of institutions that would serve as an inspiration for other societies.-
[00:20] <AdEvaGM> [After her terms had ended, Linden spent time sitting on the Federation Council, the main legislative body of the Federation.-
[00:21] <AdEvaGM> [Ultimately she became the leader of the Peace Party, which pushed heavily for a peaceful conclusion to the Shrinepath Devoted War. She also served as Prime Minister for eight years.-
[00:22] <AdEvaGM> [Minerva never really found 'the one'. She and Kaiden never went anywhere. She has one child, the result of an ill-fated relationship with San Ayanami. Despite their separation, they both remain avid, doting parents.-
[00:22] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:22] <AdEvaGM> [Tobias Linden.-
[00:24] <AdEvaGM> [Tobias became a lawyer, pushing successfully for strict laws and codes of conduct to be embedded into Starfleet. He also spent many years serving as the sole human on the Federation Supreme Court, the other eight members being AI.-
[00:24] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:24] <AdEvaGM> [Kaiden Peters.-
[00:25] <AdEvaGM> [There is no point to proclaiming all of Peters' glorious deeds here, except that he ultimately became Federation Minister of Defense for 20 years, overseeing the Shrinepath Devoted War, where he was praised for his leadership. On resigning, he went and finished that degree… Only to be brought back to serve as Minister during the conflict with the Overseer Empire.-
[00:25] <AdEvaGM> [There is a warship named after him and he doesn't know why.-
[00:26] <AdEvaGM> [He is married to a pastry chef named Sally. They have two kids. He's a good dad.-
[00:26] <AdEvaGM> [He doesn't know how to explain his crusader tabard.-
[00:26] <AdEvaGM> […-
[00:26] <AdEvaGM> [Albert St. Francis.-
[00:26] <AdEvaGM> [St. Francis reincarnated.-

[13:53] <Minaplo> [Liu Lin.-
[13:53] <Minaplo> [Liu Lin returned to the Republic of China as its president, overseeing its rebuilding as well as supporting the reconstruction of its neighbours. She held the position up until its dissolution.-
[13:55] <Minaplo> [Despite requests and petitions, Liu Lin swore off the path of politics forever, and went with her wife Minglei to the Outer Sphere Colonies, where she bought a plot of land, grew vegetables and lived a quiet, pastoral life as a gentlelady farmer.-
[13:59] <Minaplo> [… Until she didn't, and ended up joining the Sphere Defense Force of the planet she settled on, which to her mild dismay saw her end up with a command position.-
[13:59] <Minaplo> [You can't keep a good general down.-
[13:59] <Minaplo> […-
[14:00] <Minaplo> [Zhuge Minglei.-
[14:04] <Minaplo> [Minglei went with Lin to the Colonies, where her attempts to stick to the pastoral life went about as well as Liu Lin's. Whilst Minglei avoided the military, she ultimately became heavily involved in the developing industries on the colonies based around gathering raw materials, where Minglei's eye for detail, caution and organisational skills served her well.-
[14:04] <Minaplo> [She also made more money, which was nice.-
[14:04] <Minaplo> […-
[14:08] <Minaplo> [Zhang Mingzhu.-
[14:09] <Minaplo> [Zhang Mingzhu took up a government position, overseeing the development of the Chengdu Superheavy Arsenal, a government-run military factory dedicated to producing Superheavies and especially large-scale weaponry.-
[14:11] <Minaplo> [Mingzhu also reunited with her husband, Xiang Huan, and together they live happily in Sichuan.-
[14:11] <Minaplo> [They did have one other child, though. They enjoyed Yanmei's reaction immensely.-
[14:11] <Minaplo> […-
[14:13] <Minaplo> [Sarasvati.-
[14:15] <Minaplo> [Sarasvati moved to India with Isha, where they established the Saraisha Engineering Cooperative. Half settlement, half corporation, the Cooperative is essentially a small city of 'artisan engineers' who collaborate on projects to their liking.-
[14:16] <Minaplo> [This changed somewhat when they produced the Jatayu Superfighter, which became the single most popular Superheavy in the fleet, and there are some who bemoan the change in the Cooperative's culture as it expanded to accommodate demand.-
[14:17] <Minaplo> [Sarasvati still misses her father, but she's happy. Respected, loved, and enjoying life with her husband Isha and their child, Lilavati.-
[14:17] <Minaplo> […-
[14:17] <Minaplo> [John Brown.-
[14:18] <Minaplo> [John Brown remained in his native Australia, where he quietly dismantled his network of informants, body doubles and agents. He never explained how he managed it, infuriating many who gave a damn and amusing many who didn't.-
[14:20] <Minaplo> [He became Australia's Prime Minister until the position was dissolved, aiding in the nation's transition and healing much of the damage left on the people, if not the environment. He also ensured that they maintained ties with the Iron Guard as they emigrated to the colonies.-
[14:21] <Minaplo> [Now Brown maintains a cultural museum in Canberra, where the Beast of Ten Thousand Heads is always recognised for who he is.-
[14:21] <Minaplo> […-
[14:21] <Minaplo> [Asuka Langley-Soryu.-
[14:22] <Minaplo> [After the war, Asuka spent some time travelling with Alexandre. The two married, Asuka happily dropping her father's name, but mostly they remained quiet for some time.-
[14:25] <Minaplo> [A few years later, Asuka approached Yanmei with a plan: to create a society where people would join and be trained to be troubleshooters of any stripe: mediators of conflicts, explorers, killers of the odd rampaging impact feral or xenofauna… Answering to requests from civilians and ultimately prioritising the protection and security of the civilian population over all. This society was to be called the Society of Guardians.-
[14:27] <Minaplo> [It was also a good engine to channel the various abilities of those who had been left feeling useless, out-of-place, or simply bored with mundane life… In essence, a society for people like NeoSpartans or war veterans, except without the focus on killing others, and instead protecting and growing.-
[14:28] <Minaplo> [With Promised Land having disbanded, Asuka's plan was accepted and the Guardians given special dispensation to buy certain selected military hardware on a case-by-case basis. Since then she has worked as a Guardian, building up a reputation as a fierce protector of life and liberty across the Federation.-
[14:28] <Minaplo> [She also fulfilled a personal dream when she answered a very special request to the Society: the German football team needed a player to fill in a gap in their line.-
[14:29] <Minaplo> [It was a bloodbath.-
[14:30] <Minaplo> [She and Alexandre have a single child in the shape of Oskar Soryu-Fontaine. Stubborn and fierce as his mother, smug and calculating as his father, Oskar joined the Guardians, where he mostly tries to live out the ideals whilst preventing his mother from periodically ruining whatever he has going at the time.-
[14:31] <Minaplo> [Asuka pilots a custom Superheavy nowadays, having turned down an offer to become an Evangelion. She feels she pretty much crushed it as an Eva pilot, and it's only fair to 'take a dummy option' and pilot a jet-engined deathtrap as a living.-
[14:31] <Minaplo> […-
[14:31] <Minaplo> [Kyoko Zeppelin-Soryu, AKA Evangelion Unit 02.-
[14:32] <Minaplo> [Kyoko returned. Oh yes, she returned.-
[14:33] <Minaplo> [She rejoined the Evangelion Corps, becoming both an Eva and one of the attendant scientists, where she excels at both roles. She assigned herself to the Materials Division, which is dedicated to using the power of the Eva to synthesise and transmute rare materials such as sigilite or soulstone.-
[14:33] <Minaplo> [She also takes time to sit on the Ministry of Defense's field tests of new Superheavy types, where she takes extreme joy in subjecting anything Peace Cannon puts out to a rigorous test.-
[14:34] <Minaplo> [She dotes on daughter and grandson both.-
[14:34] <Minaplo> […-
[14:39] <Minaplo> [Tsubaki Akagi.-
[14:40] <Minaplo> [Tsubaki faced a long penance for her actions in Albus's rebellion, and for fifteen years she worked in various ways as part of that penance.-
[14:42] <Minaplo> [When her sentence was served, Tsubaki decided to go back and finish school properly- then go on and join university, where she studied philosophy. She now works as a historian and philosopher full-time.-
[14:43] <Minaplo> [Recognising the importance of Metatron's ominous warnings, Tsubaki now spends some of her time working with Caitlin Guillory and Aline Blanc on researching the nature of the 'Library', and can often be found on civilian transports, heading to planets that have been discovered to bear traces of Ancestral archaeology.-
[14:43] <Minaplo> […-
[14:43] <Minaplo> [Naoko Akagi, aka Evangelion Unit 03.-
[14:44] <Minaplo> [Naoko reincarnated, freeing herself of a life she felt she had seriously misspent. Next time, she hoped, would be better.-
[14:44] <Minaplo> […-
[14:44] <Minaplo> [Alexandrina Windsor.-
[14:45] <Minaplo> [Lexie joined the art world fully, becoming both artist and curator both. Free of her expectations as a royal, she delights in her freedom, and the appreciation she receives from others for her skilled, emotional art pieces.-
[14:46] <Minaplo> [Lately, Lexie has been working on gathering art about the Shrinepath Devoted war, driving towards a long-term gallery discussing how the Devoted treat art.-
[14:47] <Minaplo> […-
[14:48] <Minaplo> [Vasily Volkov, aka Evangelion Unit 06.-
[14:48] <Minaplo> [The tortured soul of Vasily Volkov returned to the well of humanity, reincarnating.-
[14:48] <Minaplo> […-
[14:48] <Minaplo> [Elene Simonides.-
[14:50] <Minaplo> [Elene, along with her sister Sophia and husband Zhengsheng, joined Asuka's new Society of Guardians. It was a natural change for Elene, who had been otherwise spending her years cracking down on the remnants of organised crime in the Aegean region.-
[15:15] <Minaplo> [The three of them, who always take missions together, have a real reputation as consummate troubleshooters, as their diverse personalities, yet willingness to work as a team, makes them able to face almost any challenge.-
[15:15] <Minaplo> […-
[15:18] <Minaplo> [Sophia Simonides.-
[15:19] <Minaplo> [Like her sister and husband, Sophia joined the Society of Guardians. She quickly organises the Society's ad-hoc inventories and developed an in-org engineering shop, which was absolutely essential considering their use of rare and fiddly weapons.-
[15:20] <Minaplo> [She still takes field missions, but most Guardians, especially the newer ones, know her more distinctively as the charming, highly involved engineer who provides them with their first tools.-
[15:20] <Minaplo> […-
[15:20] <Minaplo> [Yulia Romanova, aka Evangleion Unit 07.-
[15:21] <Minaplo> [This sad, miserable spirit gladly went with Lilith after the war, fleeing the memories and sorrows of the world.-
[15:21] <Minaplo> […-
[15:21] <Minaplo> [Isaiah Wei-Zhang.-
[15:24] <Minaplo> [For the first few years after the war, Isaiah spent his time supporting Yanmei in her titanic efforts to bring the Federation together. One of his most important roles was working with the Defectors, cataloguing their biology and ensuring compatibility between Federation medicine and Defector health.-
[15:34] <Minaplo> [After this was done and the Federation settled following the fractious August Incident, Isaiah became a fully employed doctor. He makes sure to travel with Yanmei wherever she goes, of course.-
[15:35] <Minaplo> [He's happy, content, peaceful and joyfully raising their children. For Isaiah, his dreams really came true.-
[15:35] <Minaplo> […-
[15:35] <Minaplo> [Wei Liyi, AKA Evangelion Unit 08.-
[15:40] <Minaplo> [Wei Liyi and her husband, Elijah Gabriel, made the decision together not to resurrect. Instead, they would both reincarnate- together, taking whatever vagaries fate felt like dealing them, but looking forward to being reborn into the new world.-
[15:40] <Minaplo> […-
[15:46] <Minaplo> [Rei Ayanami.-
[15:49] <Minaplo> [After the war, Rei joined the Federation government, where she suggested the idea of a ministry known as the Ministry of Justice and Reconciliation. It would be in charge of justice and the police force, but would also be charged with overseeing peaceful outcomes to those cultural conflicts that the Federation still had to deal with: even if the Gestalt did a great deal to bring humanity together, these conflicts- some hundreds of years old- were simply not going to go away. Thus, the Ministry of Justice and Reconciliation.-
[15:50] <Minaplo> [Rei now serves as Minister for Justice and Reconciliation, having spent its first years learning the ropes as a junior aide. She is ridely respected for her role, and has seen many successes in putting to bed some of humanity's most persistent disagreements.-
[16:03] <Minaplo> [Despite her busy schedule, she always finds time to check in on her children, many of whom have since started their own careers away from the nest. It makes Rei a little sad, but she knows before long, there'll be a flood of grandchildren to cuddle…~-
[16:03] <Minaplo> […-
[16:03] <Minaplo> [Sho Ayanami.-
[16:04] <Minaplo> [Sho made the full transition into the fashion industry, where she became a successful and well-regarded designer. One of her oddest ideas were outfits for Evangelions which, despite everything, went very well- she never sold many, but they always served as great advertisements.-
[16:05] <Minaplo> [Attempts to make 'outfits for Superheavies' was extremely vetoed by the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Infrastructure.-
[16:05] <Minaplo> [She remains a flamboyant dresser and inveterate spender to this day.-
[16:05] <Minaplo> […-
[16:05] <Minaplo> [Ni Ayanami.-
[16:07] <Minaplo> [Ni spent her years after the war as part of the military, doing whatever was needed. She resigned shortly after the worst was over, joining Asuka and Alex's fledgling Society of Guardians, becoming one of its Five Councillors- the Councillors being those who actually ran the Society. She formulated the rigorous training doctrines, which cover innumerable topics, and also hashed out the behavioural requirements. She rarely takes missions, instead spending most of her time tuning the Society's workings.-
[16:08] <Minaplo> [She married Keita Asari. The two had very little to do with one another during the war, but now found that their personalites complimented each other, namely, that having a partner as perfectionist and fastidious as you helped a great deal in focusing your wrath on the rest of the unsuspecting world.-
[16:08] <Minaplo> [Together, they have two children.-
[16:08] <Minaplo> […-
[16:09] <Minaplo> [San Ayanami.-
[16:10] <Minaplo> [San went into publishing. Wildly underestimated by some, she proved much cannier than many expected. She now runs New Century Publishing, a mass media empire that brushes up against the very limits of the Federation's strict media monopoly laws.-
[16:10] <Minaplo> [Wealthy, influential and constantly trading in secrets, San is at the top of her game; but she still has time to write the odd article here and there, talking about stories from the war.-
[16:12] <Minaplo> [She has one child, the result of a relationship with Minerva Linden that didn't last. She's very fond of her child, and is always happy to help them- especially with favours or gossip.-
[16:12] <Minaplo> […-
[16:12] <Minaplo> [Chiisana Ayanami.-
[16:13] <Minaplo> [Chiisana became the first of the 'new' Evangelions, a fact she demonstrated when she terminated negotiations with the Axis by transforming into one.-
[16:15] <Minaplo> [Since then she has continued her role as an Eva, although she has shied away from being interred in a starship, and tries to avoid duty with the Dirac Gate Corps. Instead, she acts as an explorer and intelligence gatherer. During the Shrinepath Devoted War, she acted as a spy of sorts, using a mix of cloaking and telepathy to suss out the psychology of the enemy.-
[16:17] <Minaplo> [Chiisana generally avoids being involved in government decisions these days, possibly due to the perception associated with being the one to crush the Axis and the connotations that entails. Regardless, she remains a faithful and venerated figure.-
[16:18] <Minaplo> [She has four children, who she loves; but regrets that due to her work, often can't see as much as she likes.-
[16:18] <Minaplo> […-
[16:18] <Minaplo> [Go Ayanami.-
[16:19] <Minaplo> [After a stint in the military, Go found her calling when she, out of curiosity more than anything else, started taking classes about cinema and film theory. Ultimately she became a movie director and playwright, one of the more successful and famous of the New Era.-
[16:20] <Minaplo> [For whatever reason, her works are absurdly, hugely popular amongst the Defector community. Go has no idea why.-
[16:21] <Minaplo> [She married Kourosh Rustami, and together they have nine children, whom they routinely embarrass with their eccentric behaviour and total lack of regard for what constitutes an acceptable public display of affection.-
[16:21] <Minaplo> […-
[16:22] <Minaplo> [Roku Ayanami.-
[16:23] <Minaplo> [Roku spent much of the time after war helping with displaced populations and ensuring the proper integration of refugees and orphans- including the Defectors. After that, she joined the Society of Guardians, but she spends much of her time running a well-regarded restaurant in Paris with her beloved husband, Aksel.-
[16:24] <Minaplo> [Roku is a warm, involved parent to her three children, although she worries terribly about them now that they've up and moved out. She is happy to know, however, that her children have been raised to value kindness and to know how to cook the best damn meals in the Federation, or so she says.-
[16:25] <Minaplo> […-
[16:25] <Minaplo> [Nana Ayanami.-
[16:26] <Minaplo> [Nana joined the military full-time, and led a Superheavy strike force for several decades. These days, she is on active duty less often, as her expertise is considered more valuable on the teaching side of things. Thus she now works both as a Superheavy pilot instructor and as a test pilot, which just so happens to ensure she spends plenty of time around Zhang Mingzhu, her dear mother-figure.-
[16:26] <Minaplo> […-
[16:32] <Minaplo> [Hachi Ayanami.-
[16:33] <Minaplo> [Hachi returned to life, where she promptly went back to bashing heads for the military. When Asuka approached her regarding the Guardians, she leapt at the chance.-
[16:33] <Minaplo> [Despite everything, the experience has rounded Hachi quite well, and she is now entirely capable of negotiating people down from a fight.-
[16:33] <Minaplo> [(Being able to do it is different to actually doing it.)-
[16:34] <Minaplo> […-
[16:34] <Minaplo> [Kyuu Ayanami.-
[16:34] <Minaplo> [Kyuu took the chance to reincarnate.-
[16:34] <Minaplo> […-
[16:34] <Minaplo> [Juu Ayanami.-
[16:35] <Minaplo> [Juu left with Lilith, the only Ayanami to do so, hoping to forget the world that had caused her so much miserable death.-
[16:35] <Minaplo> […-
[16:35] <Minaplo> [Julianna (nee Juuichi) Ayanami.-
[16:36] <Minaplo> [Julie's natural ambitions served her well, and after a brief stint in the Federation Council, she emigrated and was given the position of Systems Governor of the Seven Sisters System, where she works to organise people and settlements across seven different planets.-
[16:37] <Minaplo> [By all accounts, it's a role in which she thrives, and she remains as cheerful and indomitable as ever.-
[16:39] <Minaplo> [After the war, Julie married Remy Fabien-Awala; the two later entered into a polyfidelious marriage with an Ethiopian starship designer named Eskender Tadesse. The trio have three children together, who are at any given time moving between multiple worlds more or less constantly. Julie takes plenty of time to spoil her children, and anyone else's children, whilst also making sure her children know that it's entirely fine to want to rule the galaxy, so long as you can rule it well.-
[16:39] <Minaplo> […-
[16:39] <Minaplo> [Michael Leon.-
[17:00] <Minaplo> [Michael joined the Society of Guardians after the war; the intersection of assisting civilians, mediating conflicts and combat skill being a perfect fit for his skillset. In this he was joined by his sister Medea, as well as his partner Fatima and her family.-
[17:01] <Minaplo> [He ultimately never joined the priesthood, but for whatever reason, often seemed to find himself giving 'advice' to church leaders quite often…-
[17:01] <Minaplo> […-
[17:01] <Minaplo> [Dorian Lachapelle, AKA Evangelion Unit 21.-
[17:02] <Minaplo> [Dorian resurrected, and signed back onto the military, where he was given overall command of the Federation's nascent forces following the war. After the August Incident, he moved into government as Minister of Defense, leaving office shortly before the Shrinepath Devoted war.-
[17:02] <Minaplo> [He now teaches command and strategy at the Academy.-
[17:18] <Minaplo> [He married Ariadne Delacour, and his grudgingly extremely happy.-
[17:18] <Minaplo> […-
[17:19] <Minaplo> [Alexandre Fontaine.-
[14:52] <Minaplo> [After the war, Alex travelled with Asuka; they married, fulfilling an old, unspoken promise.-
[14:55] <Minaplo> [Alexandre put a lot of his energy into setting up the Society of Guardians, where he wholeheartedly embraced his self-appointed 'Social OD' title, which sometimes meant handling negotiations and agreements, and sometimes meant taking credit for Asuka's diplomatic successes as was appropriate.-
[14:56] <Minaplo> [He still keeps in touch with his old friends, as well as his mother. To his relief, he's never been offered the chance to become an Eva.-
[14:57] <Minaplo> [He is proud of his son Oskar, and believes his son has what it takes to be a true hero of the age (much like his father). He notes with approval that Oskar's partner is as terrifying as Oskar's mother.-
[14:58] <Minaplo> [Every so often he visits Sera's bakery, where he tries to see how much he can walk away with for free. He also likes to suggest a bit of advertising advice, then take credit for any imagined or real successes for the next month.-
[14:58] <Minaplo> [He has started to visit his father's grave again.-
[14:58] <Minaplo> […-
[14:58] <Minaplo> [Edgar Chevalier.-
[14:59] <Minaplo> [Edgar didn't reincarnate. He and his sister Amelia went with Lilith to their new destination. This surprised some, but Edgar explained it thusly: Lilith was simply too much of a mad monstrous motherfucker to be possibly left without supervision, and so Edgar was gonna go along to make sure she didn't try any shit on her own people -again-.-
[14:59] <Minaplo> […-
[15:02] <Minaplo> [Eva Marchand.-
[15:03] <Minaplo> [Eva went into the military after the war, surprising few. She spurred an offer to join as a fleet officer, instead focusing her attention on building up a new, strong Superheavy corps.-
[15:04] <Minaplo> [Nowadays she presides over the Starfleet Academy at Melbourne as its vice-chancellor. During her tenure, she instituted the policy that all Superheavy pilots needed a double-specialisation in both a military and civil role in order to progress. Marchand's Rule remains cursed by overworked students to this day.-
[15:05] <Minaplo> [She still keeps in touch with Aline, happily sending her samples of new potential weapons tech- although these days Eva makes sure that keeping 'in touch' doesn't mean literally.-
[15:05] <Minaplo> […-
[15:14] <Minaplo> [Pham Phi Tien.-
[15:16] <Minaplo> [Tien returned to Vietnam with her partner Nataniel. There- assured that China was not going to try anything- she cautiously put aside her weapons and joined the great project that was restoring cohesiveness to her beloved homeland.-
[15:22] <Minaplo> [After about ten years of enjoying the nice, peaceful life of not-being-a-Neospartan-guerrilla fighter, she up and joined the Starfleet, putting herself through the Academy's training programme with ease. She now serves as Rear Admiral of the 2nd Outer Sphere Fleet, where she landed the final blow of her war of independence: by convincing command not to name the fleet's flagship the Liu Lin.-
[15:22] <Minaplo> […-
[15:22] <Minaplo> [Nataniel Santiago y Martin.-
[15:24] <Minaplo> [Nataniel didn't join Tien in signing up for the military; instead he remains a civilian, living near her permanent basing. They don't see each other as often as they like, but it's given Nataniel time to work on his hobbies of building furniture and growing fruit trees.-
[15:24] <Minaplo> [He no longer treats being shot at as a daily occurrence, and he's much happier for it.-
[15:24] <Minaplo> […-
[15:26] <Minaplo> [Remy Fabien-Awala.-
[15:26] <Minaplo> [In the Gestalt, Remy asked for a single favour. Just one. Just a tiny one…-
[15:27] <Minaplo> [After the war, Remy and his pet Apocalypse Engine indulged in their mutual love for zoology by joining the University of Kinshasa's zoology department. When the University created a new department dedicated to investigating xenofauna, he was chosen to lead it, much to his joy.-
[15:27] <Minaplo> [He now travels from planet to planet, cataloguing what seems to be an endless arrangement of strange, wondrous, beautiful, and extremely deadly creatures.-
[15:28] <Minaplo> [His trips often see him go through the Seven Sisters system, where his wife, Julianna Ayanami, sits as system governor; and when he returns to Earth he spends time with their husband, Eskender Tadesse.-
[15:29] <Minaplo> [The trio have three children, whom Remy is constantly trying to take on his fun adventures.-
[15:29] <Minaplo> […-
[15:35] <Minaplo> [Hikari Horaki.-
[15:37] <Minaplo> [Hikari shuffled out of the military shortly after Gestalt, where she threw her time into becoming an oceanologist.-
[15:37] <Minaplo> [She married Toji, and the two have a single child together.-
[15:38] <Minaplo> [She makes a point of being cheerful whenever the hell she damn well pleases.-
[15:38] <Minaplo> […-
[15:38] <Minaplo> [Keita Asari.-
[15:39] <Minaplo> [Keita joined the Society of Guardians after the war, where his high standards and excellent combat ability combined to make him a gruelling, but exceptional teacher to prospective newbies.-
[15:39] <Minaplo> [He married Ni Ayanami, finding she both truly understood him and refused to tolerate his shit.-
[15:40] <Minaplo> [The two have a pair of children together.-
[15:40] <Minaplo> […-
[15:40] <Minaplo> [Mayumi Yamagishi.-
[15:42] <Minaplo> [Mayumi became a mathematician after the war. Her war nerdiness faded, never quite recovering from the memory of her sinking warships and sending thousands to drown.-
[15:42] <Minaplo> [Ultimately she and Kensuke Aida split not long after.-
[15:43] <Minaplo> […-
[15:43] <Minaplo> [Toji Suzuhara.-
[15:44] <Minaplo> [After the war, Toji ditched the military at an honestly insulting speed- after all, he'd only joined to rustle up money for his sister's hospital bills.-
[15:46] <Minaplo> [After the war, he dedicated himself to athletics, and became a rugby player for the Japanese national team.-
[15:47] <Minaplo> [He makes a point of reminding his daughter that she can grow up to be whatever she wants and her daddy will always be proud of her. She reminds him that she's a space explorer now, remember?-
[15:47] <Minaplo> […-
[15:47] <Minaplo> [Kensuke Aida.-
[15:47] <Minaplo> [Aida seemed set on keeping his ties to the military. This led to a split with his relationship with Mayumi Yamagishi.-
[15:48] <Minaplo> [Now, he is married to the war machine, devoting his energies into developing tech for the Saraisha Engineering Cooperative.-
[15:48] <Minaplo> […-
[15:48] <Minaplo> [Musashi Lee-Strasbourg.-
[15:49] <Minaplo> [Musashi left the military after the war. The first thing he did when he could was go on a year-long cruise, a cruise free of any kind of shooting, killing, maiming, war, or Keita Asari.-
[15:55] <Minaplo> [He now works as a sculptor, with clay and marble. It's careful, deliberate work- and he excels at it.-
[15:55] <Minaplo> […-
[15:56] <Minaplo> [Matthias Holmstrom.-
[15:56] <Minaplo> [Matthias was freed of his service to Lexie after she dropped the royal family. They're still ironclad friends, and he's even posed for her a few times.-
[15:57] <Minaplo> [But Matthias finally found his passion by joining the Society of Guardians. For a man who could choose nothing, it promised him everything and freed him from the pressure of fearing he was running out of time.-
[15:58] <Minaplo> [He married Blue, who still operates his bar on the Dorian; Matthias is never too far away that he can't come home and tend bar for a week or two.-
[15:58] <Minaplo> [The gestalt has allowed Matthias to work on his relationship with his parents- his long-suffering mother and the father he never knew.-
[15:58] <Minaplo> […-
[16:02] <Minaplo> [Isha Misra.-
[16:31] <Mianplo> [Isha returned to India with his partner Sarasvati, where together they started the Saraisha Engineering Cooperative. He took a more social aspect to things, making sure the place was not only well-run but also a good place to be.-
[16:32] <Mianplo> [He still occasionally takes a Superheavy out for a spin, just to keep himself sharp.-
[16:33] <Minaplo> [With most of his family revived and living with him, and he now having a child, Isha feels confident that the darkness of his life is far past.-
[16:33] <Minaplo> […-
[16:33] <Minaplo> [Lilly Norling.-
[16:35] <Minaplo> [After the war, Lilly spent her time training and practicing. After a brief stint in athletics, where she won some acclaim, she joined politics, becoming a member of the Bioliberal Party, who campaign on a platform of deregulating research and investment into genetic manipulation and organic implantation.-
[16:42] <Minaplo> [Mostly, she was galvanised by the continued existence of the Immortals. She wanted to outlaw them.-
[16:44] <Minaplo> [However, she put in a lot of work with the Defector community, and one day on the topic, a Defector explained to her that broad differences in innate potential were simply the standard of the galaxy: her own eyes were naturally better than the Defector's, and always would be, 99% of the time. Now, better than ever, would be a time to embrace diversity of form instead of trying to fit everyone into the same shape.-
[16:44] <Minaplo> [And so she now serves as part of a political party dedicated to liberalising the biological advantage.-
[16:44] <Minaplo> […-
[16:45] <Minaplo> [Mohammed Walid Shire.-
[16:47] <Minaplo> [After the war, Mohammed dedicated himself to his poetry, his beloved wife Amala and his garden on Xin Zhongguo in equal measure. It is a quiet life, but a life he has chosen and he lives it well, his wartime days far behind him.-
[16:52] <Minaplo> [He has a few children now, who push him for stories about the war. When Mohammed shares them, he isn't quite sure if they believe him… Which is strange. Wasn't he just a normal man?-
[16:53] <Minaplo> […-
[18:03] <Minaplo> [It was too late for Marie.-
[18:03] <Minaplo> [She was too deep into the "Big guns on a giant metal walky man" mindset to quit now.-
[18:04] <Minaplo> [She remained in the military, serving faithfully in the Superheavy corps, stubbornly refusing any and all attempts by the government to release her into a teaching position.-
[18:05] <Minaplo> [She understood the arguments well enough- she was a smart one, Marie- and ultimately decided to put her skills to the test for the greater good of humanity by joining the Thruster Unity as an R&D director-pilot, helping to both design and test-run new designs.-
[18:08] <Minaplo> [In this she joined her best friend and platonic life partner Henri Duval, who, whilst not quite drinking the positron kool-aid of Thruster Unity, thought designing the next generation of giant robots? Pretty cool.-
[18:09] <Minaplo> […-
[18:21] <Minaplo> [Mana Kirishima.-
[18:22] <Minaplo> [After the war, Mana decided to indulge her fascination with Earth's newest citizens: the Defectors. She spent time with them, ate with them, learned all she could. This ultimately led to her joining the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a branch of the government with a heavy Defector presence.-
[18:23] <Minaplo> [Apart from her friendships with her new close-knit friends, Mana made sure to keep in touch with her old companions- Remy, Ezra, Sarah, Tsubaki and of course, Raphael and the rest of SOS.-
[18:23] <Minaplo> [She now dreams of taking a ship and seeing for herself all the sights she's been told about by the Defectors.-
[18:23] <Minaplo> […-
[18:24] <Minaplo> (still can't pass a test worth shit tho)
[18:24] <Minaplo> [Blaise Herriot.-
[18:24] <Tao> (I mean obv)
[18:24] <Minaplo> [Blaise became an actor.-
[18:25] <Minaplo> [He is a successful, well-loved action movie star. He loves every minute of it. He is, in fact, inescapable in pop culture.-
[18:26] <Minaplo> [His latest movie, Duker 8: Dukeageddon, was especially enjoyed by Immortals, Marines and other stupid people.-
[18:26] <Minaplo> […-
[18:30] <Minaplo> [Henri Duval.-
[18:31] <Minaplo> [Henri went into the heavy engineering industry after the war, working for the lovable mad scientists at Thruster Unity. As one of the few with long-term practical experience of the Superheavy, he provided valuable intel and insight for the R&D team of which he was a part.-
[18:43] <Minaplo> [His latest project, the Steelion, was drawn from his experience that sometimes, a Superheavy just needs to be able to shoot things a lot with as many guns as it can possibly carry. He's probably right.-
[18:44] <Minaplo> [His best friend, life partner and colleague Marie agrees, too. She would know better than he would.-
[18:44] <Minaplo> […-
[19:38] <Mianplo> [Euphrasie Beringer.-
[19:41] <Mianplo> [After the war, Euphrasie left the military to take a civilian job as a nurse in Marseilles.-
[19:43] <Mianplo> [For Euphrasie, the Gestalt was the first step towards a healing she hadn't been expected. It was clichéd to say, perhaps, that the rapture-like nature of the Gestalt was a religious experience, but for Euphrasie, it felt like something she hadn't felt in a great deal of time. With her husband and children back in her life, she began to slowly reclaim her faith. It would never be the same, but nonetheless, it was there, in a new, precious form.-
[19:43] <Mianplo> [She remains good friends with Isidor and her other war buddies- they're as much family now as anything, and they will always be welcome at Chez Beringer.-
[19:43] <Mianplo> […-
[20:33] <Minaplo> [Terence Savage.-
[20:34] <Minaplo> [Terry tried to convince the Exarch to let the Iron Guard stay in their normal forms, with the caveat that once they died, they would not reincarnate; they would go to the Exarch and stay at Their side, until the great battle at the end came.-
[20:34] <Minaplo> [After pointing out some of Terry's lurid assumptions, the Exarch refused.-
[20:35] <Minaplo> [Terry nonetheless happily reformed himself into an Iron Guard, and was instrumental in spreading the idea of dedicated Iron Guard planets.-
[20:36] <Minaplo> [Terry would choose no clan for himself, however. Instead, having taken over the Cassowaries, he requested a ship be built for him and his clan. Thus the fifth clan, the Cassowaries, do not possess their own home planet. Instead, their home is the harshest and most uncompromising of all: space.-
[20:36] <Minaplo> […-
[20:38] <Minaplo> [Blake Macnair.-
[20:39] <Minaplo> [Macnair returned home to the States for awhile, but eventually returned to the military, becoming a Starfleet Marine.-
[20:39] <Minaplo> […-
[20:41] <Minaplo> [Samantha Martins is still in the military, and is now in command of a Mechanised regiment of the Federation Star Army, the branch dedicated to planetary operations.-
[20:41] <Minaplo> […-
[20:41] <Minaplo> [Victor Pai.-
[20:41] <Minaplo> [Victor left the military and eagerly finished his degree. He's now a happy star explorer, charting planets in Sector Spinward.-
[20:41] <Minaplo> […-
[20:41] <Minaplo> [Isidor Rurikovich.-
[20:42] <Minaplo> [Isidor accepted Euphrasie's returning to her husband with a fair grace. He remained her friend.-
[20:43] <Minaplo> [But the idle life was not for him. He travelled, seeking bigger and better things. He spent years trying to learn Defector sword styles, which were difficult for a man with only two arms.-
[20:43] <Minaplo> [Yet not impossible.-
[20:44] <Minaplo> [After that, he opened up a sword school, teaching his skills primarily to Guardians and to certain elite members of the military.-
[20:45] <Minaplo> [But he did not do this alone. For love would find Isidor again.-
[20:47] <Minaplo> [During his travels, he fell for a Defector woman, one born with no siblings- an 'awkward dancer', as the saying went. Ill-fitted for Defector society, this woman, named Swimmer-in-a-Sea-of-Swords, was the descendant of a house of Defector swordmasters. She became enamoured with Isidor during his training, and the two now live together, an extremely rare yet rather fitting couple.-
[20:47] <Minaplo> […-
[20:48] <Minaplo> […-
[20:48] <Minaplo> [Mary Caine.-
[20:50] <Minaplo> [There would be no returning to the realm of humanity for Mary. She felt as though that gate had closed on her. In the Gestalt, her bitter ice-fury had slowly washed away, leaving behind only the grief and regret. Looking on the world that had been made in spite of her, she decided to leave, travelling with Lilith- her companion of ages past- into a new world.-
[20:51] <Minaplo> [Mary knew that she would be criticised. History would paint her a cruel villain, a murderer, a tyrant who oppressed the world and seized the dead themselves.-
[20:51] <Minaplo> [Mary knew that future generations would come to use her name as an insult, of a being so misguided that to be compared to them was humiliating.-
[20:52] <Minaplo> [Mary knew she would be called a monster by the world she had almost won.-
[20:52] <Minaplo> [And so she laughed.-
[20:53] <Minaplo> [Criticise them, pedants, as ye may; the mighty dead will smile at what you say.-
[20:53] <Minaplo> […-
[21:03] <Minaplo> [Jeremiah Caine.-
[21:03] <Minaplo> [Jeremiah- the patriarch who started it all, and Eugenia Ranvier, a victim of a plot of his preincarnation's making…-
[21:03] <Minaplo> [He agreed: it was time for humanity to do without Caines for awhile.-
[21:04] <Minaplo> [After final goodbyes to Isaiah, Yanmei, Aline and Sera, he went with Lilith…-
[21:04] <Minaplo> […-
[21:04] <Minaplo> [Ephraim Siskin von Brandt.-
[21:04] <Minaplo> [The Gestalt made Ephraim happy. Although it pained him, he said goodbye to Mary here.-
[21:05] <Minaplo> [The Gestalt reminded Ephraim of the truth at his heart: he dearly loved humanity.-
[21:05] <Minaplo> [With that truth revealed to him yet again, he reincarnated, to be with his people.-
[21:05] <Minaplo> […-
[21:05] <Minaplo> [Serafina Raskova.-
[21:06] <Minaplo> [Serafina reincarnated.-
[21:06] <Minaplo> [… Is how this entry nearly ended, but at the last minute, she was given a proposal. A way for her to have the life she deserved…-
[21:06] <Minaplo> [And so Serafina returned to life, to see her Little Owl once again-
[21:08] <Minaplo> [But this time, as Clan Commander of a sixth Immortal clan, a very small one, one dedicated to using the shadows as the weapon: the Night Witches.-
[21:08] <Minaplo> [With her body stronger than ever and her only 'true' family safe and sound, she can revel in the freedoms of life properly.-
[21:08] <Minaplo> […-
[21:09] <Minaplo> [Maximilian von Leitzkau.-
[21:09] <Minaplo> [This old veteran was pleased to have his friend Dorian back.-
[21:09] <Minaplo> [After the war, he remained in the German military until it was dissolved into the Earth Sphere Defense Force.-
[21:09] <Minaplo> [He remains there now, a General, given overall command of forces in the Eurosphere.-
[21:10] <Minaplo> […-
[21:10] <Minaplo> [Juno Winter-Lorenz.-
[21:11] <Minaplo> [After the war, Juno went into business with Marianne, starting up DeForest-Winter Industries. Starting with civilian suits, they eventually went into business producing Superheavies for the military.-
[21:12] <Minaplo> [But in truth, they could be producing tin soldiers for all Juno cared. From the moment she saw Marianne, she had been enamoured, and every day where she wakes up next to that angel is one that cannot possibly be a waste.-
[21:12] <Minaplo> […-
[21:13] <Minaplo> [Narendra Gadhavi.-
[21:13] <Minaplo> [Narendra returned to life.-
[21:14] <Minaplo> [The man who, unknown to all except a few to be Monsieur Madeleine, protector of the Phantoms, was now left without a purpose, for the Phantoms had returned to their original lives.-
[21:15] <Minaplo> [And so he worked quietly, in orphanages and refugee camps, quiet, soft-spoken, volunteering all except his story.-
[21:16] <Minaplo> [Eventually, he was arrested and put on trial for war crimes committed during the war.-
[21:17] <Minaplo> [Narendra did not resist. He pled guilty and accepted any punishment they might give.-
[21:19] <Minaplo> [But at the climax of the trial, an intruder burst in, pleading amnesty for Narendra. The intruder was Jean-Baptiste, the interloper, the priest, the man who had saved Narendra's soul.-
[21:20] <Minaplo> [To the astonishment of all, Jean-Baptiste confessed to Narendra's crimes, claiming that he had manipulated Narendra into taking the blame.-
[21:21] <Minaplo> [But Narendra would have none of it. Addressing the court, he reiterated his guilt, in detail, and said that he was ready and willing to face punishment.-
[21:24] <Minaplo> [Finally he turned to JB and said- "You, old friend, taught me how to love the world. Did you really think I would let you fall for me? I need you free; so long as you are free, I will not be afraid. My soul belongs to God, old friend, and they cannot take that away."-
[21:26] <Minaplo> [Narendra was sentenced to prison, where he stayed for fifteen years; on his release, he upheld his end of that old promise and joined the priesthood.-
[21:26] <Minaplo> […-
[21:31] <Minaplo> [Ezra Caine.-
[21:31] <Minaplo> [Ezra returned to life. He punched Aksel once, then hugged him.-
[21:32] <Minaplo> [But the best of all the hugs were reserved for Sarah- as always, the truest love he had ever known.-
[21:36] <Minaplo> [With the Gestalt returning many of the NeoSpartans to parents- or indeed to the well of reincarnation- and the Society of Guardians taking in the rest, Ezra and Sarah dissolved Promised Land, and left to take up positions as full-time geologists.-
[21:36] <Minaplo> [The last of the Caines have four children together. They're not as embarrassing a pair of parents as Go and Kourosh, but they try.-
[21:37] <Minaplo> […-
[21:37] <Minaplo> [Sarah Holt-Caine.-
[21:45] <Minaplo> [Before she joined Ezra in blissful academia, Sarah joined Alexandre and Asuka, helping them organise and establish the Society of Guardians, using her practical skills in management. She had contacts, experience, and the simple attention to detail to send them off in the best way possible.-
[21:46] <Minaplo> [And then yes, she joined Ezra- but her taste for exploring never waned, and to this day she treks across alien worlds, braving fierce fauna, to study the earth below.-
[21:46] <Minaplo> […-
[21:46] <Minaplo> [Eliphas and Frederick.-
[21:46] <Minaplo> [… And Eli and Fred are right there with her.-
[21:47] <Minaplo> [They both joined the Society, and are often hired by Sarah- both because she trusts them, and because of a fondness for old times.-
[21:47] <Minaplo> [Fred is married, whilst Eliphas is taking his time… He still misses the Phantom he fell in love with.-
[21:47] <Minaplo> […-
[21:47] <Minaplo> [Wu Yuanzhang.-
[21:48] <Minaplo> [Wu returned to Earth, where he tried to return to the military. Despite hesitation on the part of the authorities, he was eventually permitted to join the Starfleet. He now serves as Rear Admiral of the 3rd Outer Sphere fleet.-
[21:48] <Minaplo> […-
[15:05] <Minaplo> [Fatima Nejem.-
[15:10] <Minaplo> [After being freed of the hellish trap of the Devas, Fatima took a little time away to collect herself. After all, she was now in a world where mercenaries like herself were no longer needed. She considered the military, yet…-
[15:10] <Minaplo> [She had never really wanted to follow orders. Not without the backing that said "I don't have to do this. You asked me, remember?"-
[15:14] <Minaplo> [So when she became aware of the Society of Guardians, it became a perfect fit- she entered it without hesitation. Her sisters, her fellow witches- were all too happy to follow along.-
[15:16] <Minaplo> [And she reconnected with Michael. There had been a lot to discuss- pain, fear, hurt- but the Gestalt had given them all the time they needed. Old friends, occasional lovers, now properly reunited in a world willing to give them time.-
[15:16] <Minaplo> […-
[15:19] <Minaplo> [Sakurako.-
[15:27] <Minaplo> [Sakurako maintained her role as Emperor, her father having declined to return to life. With her intelligence network dismantled and Japan's parliament being quietly subsumed into the Federation, the only thing left to her was her title- maintained through the Treaty of Notre-Dame, but possessing no power.-
[15:29] <Minaplo> [There was little she could do about her undesirable situation. She considered abdicating, and letting them find whoever they wanted as Emperor. But ultimately her sense of duty won out.-
[15:32] <Minaplo> [However, things changed come 2030, where she was approached by the Evangelion Corps, who ran her through a series of tests. On concluding that she had the preliminary qualifications to become an Evangelion, she was offered to enrol- after all, the constitution that had bound her to exclusively be Emperor had been dissolved, and the provisos of the Federation Constitution permitted her to be an Evangelion and a symbol of a state. And so she took the plunge- and now exists as an Evangelion, returning to Japan for ceremonial and advisory purposes, but spending much of her time sailing between the stars with the form of a god.-
[15:32] <Minaplo> […-
[15:33] <Minaplo> [Achille Albert Adler.-
[15:48] <Minaplo> [Adler went to India to join the Saraisha Cooperative, where he keeps the company of his daughter and adorable little granddaughter.-
[15:48] <Minaplo> […-
[15:49] <Minaplo> [Rosamund Prescott.-
[15:56] <Minaplo> [Rosamund went into business, mastering the risks and dangers of interstellar trade with ease. She is rich, and loving it.-
[15:56] <Minaplo> […-
[16:02] <Minaplo> [Ronaldo Pereira.-
[16:03] <Minaplo> [Pereira returned to life, and ultimately joined the Earth Sphere Defense Force. He is still a little suspicious of Colombians, but he is more happy to spend time with family and friends in a peaceful world.-
[16:03] <Minaplo> […-
[15:57] <Minaplo> [Mohammed ibn Khalid Kader.-
[15:58] <Minaplo> [Kader became an Immortal after the war, a 'true' one now instead of a measly little 1st generation wimp. He joined the Iron Spider clan.-
[15:59] <Minaplo> [Now he lives the life, wrapped up in fine silks and working with the Society of Guardians, where he gets to travel, punch things, play a hero, and meet plenty of pretty girls, some of whom even have time for him.-
[15:59] <Minaplo> […-
[15:59] <Minaplo> [The Alves Family.-
[16:00] <Minaplo> [Rosaria Alves returned to life, intending to maintain her criminal empire.-
[16:02] <Minaplo> [But without the income from the arms trade, her resources began to dwindle, and the increasing skill of the Federation's security forces were turned against her. She was killed in a now-legendary final stand, fighting off whole squads of agents with her stolen positron pistols before finally being taken down by Subaru Hirano and Makoto Hyuga.-
[16:02] <Minaplo> […-
[16:05] <Minaplo> [Max Heppenheimer.-
[16:06] <Minaplo> [Max- offered the choice to return to life by something very near a god- declined, and instead reincarnated. It was time, he said, for people like him to step aside for good.-
[16:06] <Minaplo> […-
[16:07] <Minaplo> [Angelina d'Olesse.-
[16:08] <Minaplo> [The Gestalt offered one the choice to undo the injustice of a young life taken too quickly, and Angelina took that chance. She was deeply impressed with how much her classmates had done, and also fairly irritated that her main contribution had been to be one of the first humans to die to an Angelspawn.-
[16:09] <Minaplo> [She nevertheless followed her childhood ambition of becoming an author, where she writes fictional novels and graphic novels.-
[16:09] <Minaplo> […-
[16:09] <Minaplo> [Patrice Gosselin.-
[16:10] <Minaplo> [Patrice returned to life, extremely embarrassed that he'd died and highly furious that people had stood around and watched as his big dumb brother named his baby after Patrice and not something -hella cool- like Sera Yanmei de Blanc.-
[16:12] <Minaplo> [His fannish adoration of the pilots never went away, except now he stanned for the Federation instead of NERV. He ultimately joined the government, and now works in the Department for the Media.-
[16:13] <Minaplo> [He married and has three children: Sera, Yanmei, and Aline.-
[16:13] <Minaplo> […-
[16:14] <Minaplo> [Rei Ikari.-
[16:17] <Minaplo> [Rei came back. She grew up happy and loved in the company of her parents, her siblings, and of course her big friends Aline, Yanmei and Zaizai.-
[16:19] <Minaplo> [Rei ultimately became one of the first bodyshapers, something her parents find strangely appropriate…-
[16:20] <Minaplo> [She is married with two children, both of whom are close to the Ayanamis and the Ikari-Blancs both.-
[16:20] <Minaplo> […-
[16:39] <Minaplo> [Atticus Nelson.-
[16:39] <Minaplo> [Atticus followed his heart's desire into the new world with Lilith…-
[16:39] <Minaplo> [But not before freeing Yanmei of the need to name her child 'Atticus Kaworu'.-
[16:39] <Minaplo> […-
[16:39] <Minaplo> [Azariah Caine.-
[16:40] <Minaplo> [Like the others, Azariah Caine agreed that the time had come for the Caines of Hamburg to pass away. After one final thank you to Raphael, he faded with Lilith…-
[16:40] <Minaplo> […-
[16:40] <Minaplo> […-
[16:40] <Minaplo> [Silas Caine.-
[16:40] <Minaplo> [Silas was having none of that garbage.-
[16:40] <Minaplo> [So shortly after the gestalt collapsed, Yanmei, Sera and Aline would realise the cold hard truth: Silas Caine was back.-
[16:43] <Minaplo> [He was arrested and placed on trial, where he defended himself.-
[16:46] <Minaplo> [In a stunning case, Silas managed to convince the court that he was blameless. What exactly were his charges? He was a general during the LN War, fighting the UN, just like the Federation had. He was no different to Minerva Linden! And he committed no war crimes. Threatening to deploy nuclear weapons is not a war crime unless you actually do it, and the city he fired upon with his cannon had been deserted.-
[16:47] <Minaplo> [So then the Big Brother incident was pushed, where Silas argued that of course he was blameless there, too. The Angel had taken on his form, as some sort of twisted parody. He, Silas Caine, was a forthright, noble person who had died to save Atticus Nelson's life. He was a solemn figure who demanded respect, not some walking punchline!-
[16:47] <Minaplo> [Could they prove that Silas controlled the Angel? How would Silas, a lone human, control an Angel?-
[16:52] <Minaplo> [Silas was acquitted, much to the horror of certain members of the Federation government. Silas Caine, Big Brother himself, was walking free and they couldn't do anything about it.-
[17:00] <Minaplo> [Silas became an upstanding citizen, infuriating Zhang Yanmei and the others with every day of perfect behaviour. He joined the Starfleet Academy, and as though mocking them, made sure to excel in every single way.-
[17:01] <Minaplo> [It was as though every single step of his life was daring the Federation to do something about him. Would they tolerate his rise through their supposedly meritocratic institution, or would they buckle and destroy him?-
[17:05] <Minaplo> [Commodore Caine now serves as Captain of the FSS Persistence. His record is exemplary. He knows, and command knows, that if he requested command of a new Achaemenes Dreadnought, they would have very little reason to say 'no'…-
[17:06] <Minaplo> [He really is an upstanding citizen, though. He even apologised to all the Ayanamis.-
[17:06] <Minaplo> […-
[17:16] <Minaplo> [Natasha Volkova.-
[17:18] <Minaplo> [Despite her terrible life, Natasha resolved to return and make best, facing the challenge before her. Leaving her Neospartan life behind, she decided not to join the Guardians, instead entering Starfleet, where she now holds the position of Rear Admiral of the Home Systems Fleet.-
[17:22] <Minaplo> [She never married, instead having a coterie of partners that, at times, has started to resemble the old story of the sailor with a lover in every port. Now possessing much more confidence and boldness than she used to, this suits her just fine. She has two children, both adopted orphans who she raised in an environment blissfully free of violence- a gift from one who knew how precious that was.-
[17:22] <Minaplo> […-
[17:22] <Minaplo> [Elena Clement.-
[17:42] <Minaplo> [Elena returned to life; after a time travelling the world with her parents, she joined her father in helping with the Society of Guardians. In fact, she became a Guardian herself.-
[17:43] <Minaplo> [She keeps in touch with her old friends- Isaiah, Michael, and Sera- and often sends them kitschy pictures of the systems and planets she visits.-
[17:43] <Minaplo> […-
[17:43] <Minaplo> [Gendo Ikari.-
[17:44] <Minaplo> [Gendo very nearly reincarnated, but relented at the urging of his family. He returned, and became a quiet, humble botanist.-
[17:44] <Minaplo> [Without the stress of the world on his shoulders, he's less tense, more relaxed than ever, and almost enjoyable to be around.-
[17:45] <Minaplo> [He was extremely displeased that they named the second dreadnought after him; he lobbied for years on having them change the name, but at this point the Federation government keeps it to annoy him.-
[17:46] <Minaplo> [He did manage to get his replacement name taken up, though, leading to the coronation of the Dreadnought Raphael Guillory.-
[17:46] <Minaplo> […-
[17:59] <Minaplo> [Andrey Orlov.-
[17:59] <Minaplo> [Orlov reincarnated.-
[17:59] <Minaplo> […-
[17:59] <Minaplo> [Ryoji Kaji.-
[18:02] <Minaplo> [Ryoji returned to life, and after a time flitting from one thing to another. Eventually, he joined his best friend James in working for the IT industry- as a teambuilding specialist, however.-
[18:05] <Minaplo> [With no UN or NERV poking a gun into his back, he took things easy. Sometimes a little too easy.-
[18:05] <Minaplo> [Raphael knows what that means.-
[18:05] <Minaplo> […-
[18:09] <Minaplo> [Emma Rousseau.-
[18:10] <Minaplo> [Emma continued her career in journalism as though nothing had happened (like being shot or poisoned). She still keeps in touch with Yanmei, and makes sure to irritate her with the most pointed, pushy questions possible.-
[18:10] <Minaplo> […-
[18:10] <Minaplo> [Emile and Lillian.-
[18:11] <Minaplo> [Emile and Lillian stuck together after their resurrection; they went hard into the gaming industry, and are well-known for producing a series of interesting, in-depth board games and miniature games.-
[18:11] <Minaplo> […-
[18:12] <Minaplo> [Niles Windsor-Yamato.-
[18:12] <Minaplo> [Niles returned, and broke ties with the military. He strove towards becoming a judge, a position he occupies well.-
[18:12] <Minaplo> […-
[18:12] <Minaplo> [Rosalie and Marie Paget.-
[18:13] <Minaplo> [Rosalie and Marie both returned, as did Rosalie's father. The three of them lived happy and safe together, in a world that had done its best to wipe away the utterly disproportionate grief they had suffered.-
[18:13] <Minaplo> […-
[18:13] <Minaplo> [Felix the tiger.-
[18:14] <Minaplo> [Yes, Eevi would be reunited with her faithful friend before long.-
[18:14] <Minaplo> […]
[18:15] <Raphael> [Raphael Guillory-
[18:15] <Raphael> [Despite repeated claims of being ready to retire, nobody had much trouble convincing Raphael to stay with the military when it became clear Misato intended to remain as well. Though he rarely worked in the field, his voice was instrumental in shaping the Federation's military doctrine for the radically altered post-Gestalt landscape.-
[18:15] <Raphael> [In the public consciousness his last shining moment came during the August Incident, when he reentered the field to stage a daring rescue for Henriette Mazarin with the aid of Asuka Soryu-Fontaine. To his great dismay this became one of the more celebrated events of the conflict, playing a part in many movies over the next several decades.-
[18:15] <Raphael> [He couldn't stand the attention, which only made it funnier for those close to him. He fears the moment his work as the Red Shadow is declassified.-
[18:15] <Raphael> [He and Misato left the military shortly after the conflict resolved, with the logic that if they didn't leave then they probably never would. Their long-postponed marriage and their only child quickly followed.-
[18:15] <Raphael> [Hana Katsuragi-Guillory was raised on hundreds of tales of adventure from every corner of her vast, varied and exceptionally loving family. When she finally came of age she was quick to take up a role in the Society of Guardians.-
[18:16] <Raphael> [Raphael's experience opened many doors for him. He found work as a superheavy consultant, an instructor, and helped explore the stars alongside Misato… but for the rest of his life his true passion was given to friends and to family - both the one he had painstakingly built within NERV and the one he rediscovered through Gestalt. Both make him happier than he ever dared to hope for.-
[18:16] <Raphael> [He wound up speaking passable Japanese, though Misato never picked up French.-
[18:16] <Raphael> […]
[14:50] <Sept> [Sera de Pteres-
[14:50] <Sept> [Sera and Freya ended up running the Boulangerie de Guillaume for a couple years longer than they'd intended, barring a few monthlong breaks along the way. A lot of it didn't end up like Sera had imagined, and sometimes he would find himself hit hard by a sinking feeling when he thought about all the effort and the single-minded sacrifices he had convinced himself to make for a misguided, yet convenient goal. He harbored a lot of regret for his past, even if it had been for the greater good.-
[14:50] <Sept> [But this corner of the sleepy French town was undeniably the kind of space that he needed to rehabilitate himself — even if it had occasional alien visitors that Elisha hadn't predicted in his promises. And even on his darkest days, Sera would never lose the gratitude he had for every moment of this second chance at life.-
[14:50] <Sept> [After they left the bakery behind them, Sera found purpose for a short time in working for Freya with Thruster, consulting between her and the development sections. But, inevitably, he soon became frustrated with his inadequacies for the work he wanted to pursue, having lost both Elisha's technical edge as well as Longinus' gifts of memory and reason, and finally left to find something better. He continued to wander the Earth — space was never to his taste.-
[14:50] <Sept> [It was during this nomadic period, then, that Sera was asked to lend his expertise, or at least the symbolism he represented, to a new cause. The new age had brought with it a wave of "reconciliation projects", led by the Ministry of Justice and Reconciliation or, in other cases, by independent organizations. One of those independent projects was the burying of hatchets between France and Algeria, led by Eufemia Eliana de Franco Salazar. She contacted Sera to consult for her during the process, quite aware of his history with both sides.-
[14:50] <Sept> [Sera accepted the offer and repaid her trust many times over. He found that his natural outside perspective on life, as well as his significant experience in managing his own buried and broken memories both made him a natural at piecing together the fragments of the Gestalt. Driven by the expectations and given the necessary resources, Sera helped forge connections on both sides and foster mutual understanding by bringing those differing views to a personal level, relating it to each person's own experiences. Sera's work with the project was a success and, on Eufemia's advice, he applied to join the organization for further projects, and in doing so, found a career that would keep him busy for decades to come.-
[14:50] <Sept> [And Sera enjoyed it deeply. It wasn't politics, and it wasn't about influence - not his own, anyway. It was something he had found a taste for later in his life: Understanding others, helping them live together in this space they shared. Building consensus.-
[14:50] <Sept> [Eufemia and Sera hooked up a few times over the years before settling together. They had both spent a good deal of time being lost and missing parts of themselves, and that wasn't something the Gestalt had undone. So they would both still get lost, sometimes, or realize they had been lost for a while. But getting lost together isn't half as bad.-
[14:50] <Sept> […]
