"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 Sheena, which graced them with a century of peace. However, one day a Colossus 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 Yeager, 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 decided to exact his revenge.
As Armin and Erwin lay dying, Levi argues with Eren and Mikasa over who should be given the serum to be revived. When things become aggressive, Eren argues that Armin has done more for humanity in the course of the battle than Erwin. Floch, the surviving recruit, believes that Erwin deserves the second chance. Before further conflict can ensue, Hange, Jean, Connie, and Sasha arrive. Hange holds Mikasa back and comforts her, sharing sympathy with her situation.
When Levi is ready to inject Erwin, Eren reveals Armin's dream to see the ocean. Levi orders everyone to leave as he is holds the syringe to Erwin's arm, though at the last moment he remembers overhearing Armin's enthusiasm over seeing the ocean, and he recalls Kenny Ackerman's final words about people clinging to their dreams. Erwin, in a moment of exhaustion, raises his hand to ask his father about to investigate the truth. Levi makes his choice.
Bertolt Hoover awakens as Armin's mindless Titan form is generated. He cries out in fear as he is taken and eaten alive while the others watch. Levi explains his choice to his comrades, believing that Erwin deserves his long rest. Hange confirms that Erwin Smith is dead, and the recruits gather around as Armin Arlert emerges from his Titan alive and well.
Bertolt Hoover (ベルトルト・フーバーBerutoruto Fūbā?, also spelled as Bertholdt Hoover in the FUNimation sub of the anime) was a warrior from a mysterious place outside the walls he only referred to as his hometown. He was also a graduate of the 104th Training Corps and a former member of the Survey Corps. He ranked 3rd in the Training Corps; and was described by others as a weak-willed and quiet person.
Along with Reiner Braun and Annie Leonhart, he was a person that possessed the ability to transform into a Titan and served an as-yet unrevealed group. In the year 845, he was on a mission with Reiner to breach Wall Maria and infiltrate the Military in search of the Coordinate. As the Colossus Titan, he served as a major antagonist.
