"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.
Kenny Ackermann (ケニー・アッカーマン Kenī Akkāman?) was the captain (隊長 Taichō?) of the Anti-Personnel Control Squad in the Military Police Regiment. Kenny was a former serial killer who would slit his victims' throats, considered by some to be an urban legend known as Kenny the Ripper (切り裂きケニー Kirisaki Kenī?). He raised Levi Ackermann and taught the latter as a child how to survive.
At some unspecified point, either before or after becoming a serial killer, Levi recalls Kenny saying he felt a sudden inexplicable surge of power and with it he knew "exactly what to do."
When Titans appear in Wall Rose, the village does not receive warning. When a Titan attacks the village, Kaya and her mother are left behind, due to her mother having bad legs. As the Titan begins devouring her mother, Kaya is left in a state of shock, and is unable to flee. She is rescued when Sasha Blouse arrives at the village and leads her away. However, Sasha's horse flees without them, and so they are forced to flee the Titan on foot. Sasha has Kaya continue on alone so that she can stay and attempt to fend off the Titan.
The Mirror Man is present during a festival in Shiganshina District. He grabs a little girl passing by, and urges the crowd to look at him as he attempts to turn her into a murderer, introducing himself as the Mirror Man. The girl begs him to let her go so that she can see her friend, but the masked man refuses, explaining to her that he needs to hypnotize her into becoming a murderer. The man hands her a knife and proposes a deal to her; if she murders him right then he will let her go.
Years ago, Kenny Ackermann forged a lasting friendship with Uri Reiss, even though circumstances should have led to one killing the other. As Uri's confidant, Kenny became a part of the government, relieving the persecution of the Ackermann family and allowing him to look after the son of his deceased sister, Kuchel. Though Kenny was taken by Uri's sense of compassion, he found himself unable to understand what would allow a person to be that way, leading him to desire that power for himself and create the Anti-Personnel Control Squad to obtain it.
Now dying, following the collapse of the Underground Chapel, Kenny tells an inquiring Levi how he is related to his mother and why he eventually left him behind. Kenny gives Levi a syringe he stole from Rod Reiss and passes away. Elsewhere in Capital Mitras, Historia Reiss is crowned as the new Queen.
Kaya leads Falco Grice and Gabi Braun to the Blouse stables, which are run by Sasha Blouse's mother and father. The two Warrior candidates pretend to be runaways and are allowed to stay for as long as they need. However, Kaya reveals that she knows they are Marleyans and asks what her mother could have done to earn so much hate that they would have a Titan eat her. Falco apologizes and explains Marley's long term invasion plan. Understanding that they personally had nothing to do with it, Kaya offers to take them to Nicolo, who might be able to help them get back to Marley.
Meanwhile, Hange Zoë deals with insubordination from a number of Survey Corps soldiers who leaked sensitive information to the press. Dot Pixis believes they might have been compromised by Yelena since there was a change in Floch Forster while he was assigned to keeping an eye on her. Hange is disturbed that she finds herself in the same position that Djel Sannes had warned her about years ago. On Hange's orders, Mikasa Ackerman locks up Louise, who had become a soldier because she was inspired by Mikasa's rescue of her in the Battle of Trost District. Louise asks if Mikasa became a soldier because she was in turned saved by Eren Yeager, but Mikasa tells her to keep her mouth closed.
