"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.
Karl Fritz (カール・フリッツKāru Furittsu?) was the 145th King of the Fritz family and the First King of the Reiss family. As King of Eldia, he possessed the power of the Founding Titan, which he used to create the Walls and modify the memories of most of the Eldians within them, erasing the history of the outside world.
Karl Fritz was a man wracked with the guilt of his ancestors. Even before inheriting the Founding Titan, Karl Fritz detested the atrocities committed by the Eldian Empire since the days of Ymir Fritz. This intense guilt would lead him to conspire with the Tybur family to weaken Eldia enough for Marley, a nation long oppressed by Eldia, to conquer their nation and replace them as the mightiest nation in the world. Karl Fritz's guilt towards Eldia would at times become a hatred for his own people. Fritz held the belief that the world would have been better off if the Titans and the Subjects of Ymir never existed who he would allow to die when the day came, and he considered his people to be sinners. Despite this, King Fritz and his successors would still desire an age in which they and the people of Eldia could live in peace before their doom.
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.
Reiner is shocked by Eren's presence in Marley, and begins breaking down after Eren indirectly threatens the civilians watching the festival above. Falco is instructed to stay in the room. Lord Tybur finishes his preparations, as crowds take their seats. The presentation begins, and an apparent Marleyan soldier summons the Warriors on behalf of Magath.
Reiner questions Eren on why he came to Marley. Then they begin to listen to Willy's speech, where he recounts the understood history of the world. Eren and Reiner continue talking, and Pieck and Porco are led into a room, where a trap door is pulled underneath them. Falco realizes Eren is from Paradis, whilst Willy declares that the known history is a lie. He explains it was King Fritz who saved the world, and never actually posed a threat. He expands though, that Karl Fritz' power has been stolen, and a rebel resisting world peace had appeared: Eren Yeager.
