The wings on the harpies also are entirely mechanical (and impossibly retractable), whereas Adam's were of the metaphysical energy variety displayed by Yui-sama in EoE.
A) Skin colour I've covered.
The article said that fur coloration is dependent more on the factors in the womb than on genetics, but fur and skin are two entirely different things. Skin color IS something that genetics determine (for example, cross a Caucasian with an African and you get someone with a skin value somewhere in the middle). Also, I doubt the differences between "cc" and her donor are nearly as profound as the difference between something with ghostly white skin that vaguely slows and something with considerably darker skin that conforms more to human standards.
B) Eyes we can't really comment on. We never see Lilith's real eyes, only those of Lilith-Rei
This is true, but, being as GNR's eyes originally are these giant black pits that don't conform to Rei's form, I think it's possible that these may represent the original state of Lilith's eyes. (Definitely would explain why GEHIRN would want to cover Lilith's face, no?)
C) As above. We never see Lilith's face.
You can see enough that her eyes HAVE to positioned on the front of the face in a human-like way if she is to have eyes at all. Lilith clearly doesn't have her eyes located further on the sides of her head like most Evas do.
D) Possible as with skin colour
I don't find that too convincing. Lilith has a VERY unusual body composition -- she evidently has a skeleton and muscles and all, but ultimately those don't matter when you have the consistency of marshmallows (look at her fulling her hands off the cross). EVA-01, on the other hand, is NOT marshmallowy -- she is flesh, blood, and bone, able to regenerate spontaneously, but a far cry from Lilith's weirdness.
E) I disagree. The moment she regains her soul, she seems to become rather defined, although in the Lilith-Rei form
Which does not represent her original state, so it doesn't count.
F) Blood transfusion?
Guess I got you on that one. :evil:
H) That was only when she was bending over. We never see EVA-01 in a similar way to compare them.
I doubt most people's spines stick out THAT much, even WHEN they are bending over. They look like dorsal spines to me, and they'd be sticking out like that whether she was bending over or not. As limited and inconsistent as they are, official illustrations of naked Evas do not depict similar dorsal protrusions.
I) Removed on Unit 1 to fit in the armour? The external part of your ear isn't necessary, less so on a fighting machine with a pilot.
Erm... I really hope you don't actually believe this. It's considerably more parsimonious just to accept that Evas don't have external ears, whereas Lilith does.
My comparison chart cannot be dismissed so easily! I know the morphology of these superbeings like the back of my hand.
No comments on my radical theory (the long thing in italics) so far? Gee, I'm disappointed... :dodgy:
