"That day, the human race remembered the terror of being dominated by them, and the shame of being held captive in a birdcage..." — Over 100 years ago, a natural predator of humanity appeared: the Titans, giant humanoid but mindless monsters whose sole purpose of existence seemed to be to devour humans. There was an insurmountable gap in power between them and mankind, and as a result, humanity was rapidly exterminated to the brink of extinction. The survivors responded by constructing three concentric walls: Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sina, which graced them with a century of peace. However, one day a Colossal Titan far larger than any other seen before breached the outer wall, allowing the smaller Titans to invade the human territory and forcing the survivors to retreat to the inner walls. Eren Jaeger, a boy whose mother was eaten during the invasion, vowed to wipe every last Titan off the face of the Earth, and joined the military determined to exact his revenge.
Levi (リヴァイRivai?), often formally referred to as Captain Levi (リヴァイ兵長Rivai Heichō?), is the squad captain (兵士長Heishichō?, lit. "leader of the soldiers") of the Special Operations Squad within the Scout Regiment, and is said to be humanity's strongest soldier.
Levi is described as a "clean freak" by those who know him personally, as he prefers his environment and himself to be spotlessly clean. He is averse to having either himself or his equipment soiled, and he has been known to wipe down his blood-smeared blades while still on the battlefield. However, he will not hesitate to touch filth if he deems it necessary. Despite his preoccupation with cleanliness, Levi is abrasive and not very approachable. He rarely shows emotion, giving a cold impression to others. His manner of speaking tends to be blunt and insulting, his comments are frequently coarse or otherwise inappropriate, and he is not above provoking or belittling those who oppose or irritate him. His sense of humor tends toward the vulgar, insulting, and dark. All of this makes him unsettling to a great number of people.
Eren was born and raised in Shiganshina District located on the southern edge of Wall Maria until the year 845, when the Colossus and Armored Titans breached the Wall, allowing a flood of Titans to invade and destroy the city. During the incident, Eren impotently witnessed his mother being murdered and eaten by Dina Yeager's mindless Titan, Grisha's previous wife. This event aroused in Eren an intense hatred towards the Titans, and he swore to wipe all of them off the face of the earth. Two years later, he along with Mikasa Ackerman and his best friend Armin Arlert joined the 104th Training Corps. The three successfully graduated, with Eren ranking as the 5th best trainee, and they joined the Survey Corps following the battle of Trost District.
The Scouts later conclude that the Titans which invaded Wall Rose were in fact the human citizens of Ragako. As Eren devotes himself to discovering how to use his newfound power, a recovering Erwin concludes that the truths of the world will soon be known.
Before the festival in Liberio, Willy Tybur and Theo Magath suspect their enemies are already hidden within Marley. Willy intends to use the festival to draw them out by using himself as bait. Magath is concerned that he will be unable to protect Willy, but Willy emphasizes the importance of having the Eldians of the internment zone become tragic victims, including himself.
In the present, Willy continues his story about how the Tyburs sided with Karl Fritz and sold out the other Eldians to Marley. Meanwhile, Magath is informed about the disappearance of the Warriors and deploys a search party. As Willy warns of the danger posed by Eren Yeager and the Colossus Titans contained inside the Walls of Paradis, Eren tells Reiner Braun that he now understands what Reiner went through while living with the enemy, but Reiner does not want any excuses and accepts responsibility for what he did. Eren offers him a hand, but as Willy calls on the nations of the world to join his fight, Eren transforms into the Attack Titan. He emerges from the building behind Willy and then crushes him with his hand.
