He offers happiness to Shinji and presents himself as his friend, but there's creepy underhanded manipulative undertones to his interactions with Shinji that makes me doubt if he truly cares about him and is not just some selfish self anointed purpose, that only he can bring him happiness regardless of its cost and consequence to everything else. It's a shame cause i really like NGE Kaworu.
To me, this is one of the best parts about NTE Kaworu. He's so brilliantly written, that on first glance he really does appear to be friendly and selfless to a fault. However, peel back the layers, and his motives become highly questionable. He is the serpent of temptation.
