Mako Mori is a Japanese name, which was my first clue that she’s Japanese. The others were that the language she and the Marshall spoke early on was Japanese, and the city in her flashback was adorned with signs that had Japanese, not Chinese, on them.
Raleigh’s drawn to Mako because they’re professionally compatible, and then finds that he’s comfortable letting her into his head. They turn out to be a great fighting team, supportive of each other in an environment full of big egos, and become just really good friends.
Mako (played by Rinko Kikuchi) was a co-protagonist in the original Pacific Rim, but was killed off rather unceremoniously at the end of Uprising’s first act.
She’s not piloting a Jaeger though, as by Uprising, which is set 10 years after the first movie, she’s been promoted to Secretary-General of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps. Mako doesn’t get a lot of time to shine in Uprising, which is a bummer.
In an interview with Yahoo Movies, Charlie Hunnam stated he could not return for the sequel because of scheduling conflicts with the remake of Papillon. In an interview with IGN.com John Boyega stated that Raleigh died with Stacker Pentecost during the events of Pacific Rim.
They don’t kiss the entire film, leading part of my family (including me) to believe it is a friendship, almost sibling type relationship.
Mako grew up with her mother Sumako and father Masao Mori, who was a sword maker. When she was just a young girl, Mako became separated from her parents during a Kaiju (massive amphibious creature from another dimension) attack on Tokyo, and came face to face with the enormous Onibaba Kaiju.
The story explained that the mission was Herc’s final mission, so this occurred after the events of the first movie. The scene ends with Hansen pinned under a dead Kaiju in his Jaeger as missiles flew overhead, so it would seem the implication is that he died.

So, when we get the big Obsidian Fury reveal, it doesn’t take much to put two and two together, and figure out Newt is actually behind the rogue Jaeger. Now, even though Shao explains how her operating system makes it possible for a single pilot to operate the colossal Jaegers, it seems too easy to be true.

Cherno is one of the heaviest, oldest, and best-armored Jaegers, as well as one of the slowest. It ties with Coyote Tango for the tallest height on a Mark-1 Jaeger.
At the end of the first movie, the last working Jaeger, Gypsy Danger, goes nuclear in order to seal the rift between the dimensions. The rift collapses and the four Jaegers that were still functioning at the beginning of the final assault have all been destroyed.

Kaiju are typically modeled after conventional animals, mythological creatures, and sometimes even plants; though, there are more exotic examples.
The aliens that created them, called the Precursors, wanted the kaiju to be as damaging to humans as possible. The kaiju are basically biological weapons made to destroy as much of the Earth as they can. … When they die, the monsters ruin the ground around them, making any attempt to stop them a pyrrhic victory.
