So there _was_ a thread like that. I knew I hadn't just imagined it all.

It points out at least that she is 'crafted' the same way: salvaged soul in
a lilim body.

For the union to be complete, we should suppose that the moment Kaworu died
Adam's soul returned to the embryo...

Why should it be the same? Assuming that "Rei is Lilith" just because of
their shared components is a personal choice. Even more so if we consider
that Kaworu is considered not Adam but Tabris. A distinction of some sort is
therefore made atleast by Nerv and Seele, meaning that they probably had
some reason to (this is speculation). They could still be counterparts and
be different than their respective 'sources'. This, assuming that I
understand correctly that you mean to say that Rei and Adam must have a
'direct' genetic derivation from their sources to be what they are (which is
not really necessary).

And about Rei's inability to give birth? IIRC, clones are usually sterile.
Of course, Lilith's dna might do that too. Hmm, there is no definite answer.
