The Braun family (ブラウン家 Buraun-ke?) is an Eldian family residing within Liberio. Reiner Braun, inheritor of the Armored Titan, hails from this family, as well as Gabi Braun who is likely to inherit the Armored Titan.


At some point, Karina met a Marleyan man and later gave birth to Reiner. However, unions between Marleyans and Eldians are forbidden, so she had to remain in the internment zone with her son. Karina later revealed his origins to him and wished they were born Marleyans.[1]

This led Reiner to become a Warrior cadet with the goal to gain one of the Nine Titans and make his mother and himself honorary Marleyans. He succeeded in becoming a Warrior, being praised for his loyalty, and inherited of the Armored Titan in 843.[citation needed] Two years later, he took part to the Paradis Island Operation and infiltrated the Walls.

Some time later, Gabi followed her cousin's footsteps and joined the Warriors. Her achievements allowed her to become a serious candidate for the inheritance of the Armored Titan.
