Sakura Suzuhara (鈴原 サクラ) is the younger sister of Toji Suzuhara. She lives with her brother, father and grandfather in Tokyo-3 and was injured during Evangelion Unit-01's battle against Sachiel.

In the original TV series, she was unnamed and remained in the hospital. She was later transferred to a Nerv hospital after Toji agreed to become the pilot of Evangelion Unit-03.

Sakura in Other Media

In video-games

She has a significant role with some dialogue in Toji's scenario in the Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases video game.

In Rebuild of Evangelion

Released from the hospital
In the Rebuild of Evangelion set of movies, she was also similarly injured during the battle against Sachiel but was released from the hospital by the second movie, Evangelion 2.0, it's also the first time in the franchise as a whole that we see her physically instead of just being mentioned.

She wasn't given a name until the 3rd movie, Evangelion 3.0.

In 3.0

Following the second film, her role is expanded significantly. During the events of Evangelion 3.0, she's one of the first people to greet Shinji Ikari after he was recovered from Eva-01. Unlike the rest of the Wille organization, she didn't treat him with any disdain. She holds the rank of Second Lieutenant with Wille and is a medical officer, on board the AAA Wunder, assigned to Shinji during his stay in the ship. She makes no attempt to stop him from escaping with Rei, but warns him not to get into the Evangelion again.

Name

While 'Sakura' (Cherry Blossom) is a perfectly legitimate female name in Japan, she may have been named after the Matsu-class destroyer Sakura of the old Imperial Navy (which in turn was named after the tree). It remains to be seen whether the choice of 'Sakura' as a given name was inspired by the warship as in case of so many of Evangelion's characters or whether the choice of name is purely coincidental.
