(I don't know if this belongs here or in the discussions area, so if you need to move it. Please do.)

We've all seen Seele's coat of arms.
The damn thing is plastered on Liliths mask.
It's got seven eyes.
And has an upside-down isosceles triangle which looks like a humongous nose.
Ohhh Yeah.
On Liliths mask there'e also a whole load of craters on it as if it had a bad case of acne or something.
What's up with that?

Anyway.
My point is that this is the only version of the mask (along with the stupid multicoloured one) that we are familiar with.

However, there is one mask that we only get to see once (maybe twice*).
This is the one, as it appeared on screen

I made a bigger version of it myself. Just in case you need a closer look.

So what's with this version of the arms, and why go to so much effort to make a new coat of arms if it's only gonna be on screen for a few frames?

*Yeah, like I'm gonna check the entire series just for three frames.

This is the insignia of the Artificial Evolution Lab (where Yui did the groundwork for Project E), so the "eyes" are replaced by abstract gene/chromosome thingies.

Cool man. I never noticed that.

Another question tho.

Why call it Annex?
Annex: Seize; take without permission.

That's like saying to everyone "look at me. I'm up to no good".
Dirty: covered or marked with dirt.
Hamster: small rodent with a short tail and cheek pouches.

Annex in this context is a noun meaning "A building added on to a larger one or an auxiliary building situated near a main one". The main lab was above ground in Hakone; we see Fuyutsuki meet Yui and confront Gendo there in #21'. The annex, where Rei was born, is deep down in the Geo-front, in Terminal Dogma.
