Quotes by Shinn Asuka

What is this!? Why is this happening!? Are you trying to start another one, another war!?

Shinn Asuka expressing his hatred for war during the theft at Armory One.[1]

Trival! I won't let anyone call it trivial, and you're wrong about it being irrelevant too. I lost my entire family because of the Athhas. They believed in the nation, and they believed and your so-called ideals. And in the end, they were all killed at Onogoro. That's why I will never believe a word that you say. I'll never believe in Orb. I'll never believe any of your self-serving lies again. When you said you were going to uphold justice, did you ever stop and think of the innocents? Of how many people would die because you insisted on following through your values to the bitter end? I wish people who didn't understand stuff, wouldn't talk about things as if they did.

Shinn Asuka about his hatred for Orb and the Athha family.[2]

Shinn: This is crazy! It's unbelievable! They go on about Coordinators being a mistake and a crime against nature, and then they create these?"

Shin: How the hell can they say tinkering with genes is wrong when they are doing things like this?

Durandal: How regretful, Shinn Asuka. I was hoping that you could become my strength along with Rey.
Shin: I... Rather than living as others expect me to, I have chosen what I believed in! And that's why I'll never approve of the Destiny Plan, which takes away people's mind and freedom!
Durandal: So this is your answer... In that case, you are not needed.
Shin: ...Even then, I'll still keep on living! No matter what anyone says, I am myself! Chairman Durandal! If you do not agree, then I will fight you!

Shinn Asuka and Gilbert Durandal during the Battle of Messiah (IF route)[4]

Shin: Rey! Stop this right now!
Rey: The reason I lived to this day is to create the world that Gil desires...! What about you then, Shinn!
Shinn: To create a world without war, that's what I decided! And that's why I...
Rey: Even if war is eliminated, tragedies will always exist! The only one who can eliminate tragedies is Gil!
Shinn: But even then, the way you're doing this is wrong! That's why, Rey!

Shinn Asuka and Rey Za Burrel during the Battle of Messiah[5]

Shinn: Rey! You cared about me, was that because of who you once were?
Rey: ......
Shinn: That's not it, is it? Wasn't that because of your own free will?!
Rey: That's...
Shinn: To me, you're not some Rau Le Creuset. You're Rey Za Burrel, my friend!
Rey: ...! Shinn...But even then, I'm... My destiny is...
Shin: Come, Rey! If you're bond by your destiny, then I'll cleave it for you!

Shinn Asuka and Rey Za Burrel, after Rey reveals his true identity[5]

Do you really think you can stop wars with your ideals alone?! A world happier than one without wars... does not exist!

Shinn Asuka to Athrun Zala, during the Battle of Messiah.[6]
