Hitch Dreyse (ヒッチ・ドリス Hitchi Dorisu?) is a member of the Military Police Brigade stationed in Stohess District. She is a graduate of the 104th Training Corps, though she is not from the same division Eren Yeager belonged to.
Hitch has a somewhat catty appearance, with large amber eyes and chin length shaggy, wavy light brown hair. She wears the standard Military Police Brigade uniform like her fellow officers, except she wears a light green shirt underneath.
PersonalityHitch acts immature in certain ways, and seems to enjoy teasing and needling her fellow officers. She claims she chose to join the Military Police out of laziness, as it is well known that the senior staff are incredibly corrupt and she wanted to benefit from the system herself, but she did not take into account that as a newbie her superiors would dump all their work on her. When Marlowe claims to have joined the Military Police for noble reasons, Hitch breaks out into laughter and it is implied she only got in through dishonorable merits. She does, however, state that she never would have chosen the Military Police if she had known that she would get stuck with all the work, implying that she did in fact earn her way in, and that Boris was merely insulting her. Though she may act a bit air-headed at times, Hitch has a keen ear and was able to scout out Armin Arlert when he was gathering water, pointing her rifle at him with no hesitation. When she was later caught by the Survey Corps, she boldly bad-mouths Captain Levi and was able to wound Jean Kirstein when he threatened Marlowe, showing a degree of strength. When she managed to escape the capture by the Survey Corps, she came back to try and bail out Marlowe, implying that she cares for her comrades enough to return to danger.
Hitch is a member of the same Military Police unit as Annie Leonhart, and teases her for sleeping late. Boris Feulner is upset with Hitch's conduct and tells her to leave Annie alone, pointing out that she is the only one in their unit to have actually fought Titans in Trost District and goes on to suggest that she is jealous of Annie because she got into the Military Police with merit, implying that Hitch only got in through dishonorable means. However, their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of their superior, who assigns them to protect the Survey Corps escorts carrying Eren Yeager through Stohess District that day.
Hitch is later seen in the courtyard with her fellow soldiers, complaining about the harsh amount of work loaded onto the new recruits. When Marlowe Freudenberg begins to lecture the group and claims to be the one who will fix up the MPs, Hitch breaks down in laughter at his ideas. The group are later seen patrolling the streets, on their way to their stations for their work that day.
In the aftermath of the fight between Annie and Eren in their Titan forms, Hitch complains about Annie skipping out on her duties as she is completely unaware that Annie was the Female Titan and therefore had been detained.Marlowe in an attempt to capture wanted Survey Corps members, both are seen strolling deep into a forest. Hitch expresses her opinions on the recent events that happened in the Stohess District, and questions where Annie is, telling Marlowe that she was her room mate when Annie served in the Military Police. Their conversation is interrupted when Hitch hears water and tells Marlowe to get his gun ready. The two then see Armin Arlert gathering a supply of water from a nearby river. Hitch and Marlowe both order Armin to put his hands up into the air, only to fall into his trap. Mikasa and Levi quickly jump behind the two, take their guns away and rid them of their other weapons and uniforms. Levi then questions Hitch and Marlowe about their current positions in the Military Police as they sit on the ground with their wrists tied.
Hitch, angry at the Survey Corps, blames Levi and the entire Military branch for the aftermath of Stohess and for Annie's death. Levi tells her that Annie herself was the Female Titan and that she was captured and is still alive. Surprised, Marlowe tells Levi that he would like to help the Survey Corps, but Levi does not buy in and orders Sasha Blouse to escort them somewhere else before releasing them. Jean Kirstein interferes and offers to take them instead, taking them to a planned area.
Arriving at the spot where Jean was to release them, he admits that he intends to kill the two of them with a knife because they are dangerous. As Marlowe panics and explains that Levi did not want them to be killed, Jean says that this is his personal decision and the others know nothing. Jean then tries to stab them but trips and loses the knife. Marlowe grabs it while Hitch runs and Jean struggles with Marlowe the knife when he gets back up on his feet. When Marlowe gets a hold of the knife, Jean pushes him up against a tree and holds the barrel of a gun up to his throat, asking if he wanted to test if his knife was faster than his gun. Marlowe begs Jean to reconsider, saying he is on the Survey Corps' side. Jean then asks him to put his life in his hands and give him the knife, and Marlowe quickly smiles and complies.
Suddenly Hitch grabs a nearby stick and smashes it against the side of Jean's head. Hitch attempts to hit him again but Marlowe stops her, saying that Jean was only testing him, and he never wanted to kill them as Jean lay on the ground with a small stick in his hand that he had been pretending was a gun. Marlowe questions Jean about why he trusted him so much and Jean tells him that he reminds him of someone he hated, referencing Eren. Marlowe reaches his hand out to help Jean up, and Jean confirms that Marlowe and Hitch can be trusted and their strength could be of use, saying that Levi will certainly accept their help after hearing what just happened.
Hitch and Marlowe lead Squad Levi to the Interior Brigade Compound, where they are ready with rifles. Levi notes that it was thanks to Hitch, Marlowe, and Jean that they made it this far. They all continue their way to the compound, saying it is their time to strike.
Much later, Hitch is with a group as Hange Zoë reveals that Darius Zackly has been placed in power and the Survey Corps has been cleared of all charges. She is seen celebrating with the others and is even hugged by Sasha.
After joining the Survey Corps, Marlowe speaks of his enthusiasm for the new Thunder Spears and the upcoming mission to Shiganshina District. Sasha questions Marlowe about Hitch, asking if she tried to stop him from joining the corps, giggling with Connie Springer as she implies that the two are romantically linked. Not understanding her laughter, he responds by telling her that Hitch berated him, saying it was not for him and to stop trying to act cool. She went on to say that they could live the easy life in the Military Police since they were recognized for their service during the coup. Marlowe then claims that his opinion of her, which was just starting to improve, lowered when he heard this and that he misjudged her as a person. Jean, Armin, and Sasha insult him for this thought, however Eren and Connie do not see that fault in his words.Beast Titan, Marlowe and the other recruits participate in a suicide charge as part of a plan to take the beast down. Though Marlowe survives the first barrage of rocks thrown by the Beast Titan, he prepares for death when he sees the second wave coming for him. At this moment, he thinks about the enthusiasm he had for this mission, and wonders what Hitch is doing right then. He theorizes that she is probably still sleeping at that time but then stops himself and wonders why this is coming to mind at such a moment. Before he can finish his thought, a rock goes through the right side of his head and kills him.
As Armin Arlert explains his plan for victory against the Colossus Titan to Eren, the now awake Hitch sits on the edge of her bed and stares out her dormitory window, worrying about Marlowe and wondering if the operation to retake Wall Maria and humanity's land will be successful.
After the Survey Corps returns successful, Hitch attends a ceremony to watch as the surviving soldiers are honored for their accomplishments. However, she is left visually distressed after hearing about Marlowe's final moments from Floch.
Hitch's actual abilities are unknown, as she has never participated in combat. Boris Feulner suggests she lacks the abilities necessary to have been placed in the Military Police through honest means. Despite this, she shows keen abilities of persuasion when Marlowe is being beaten. Hitch does not show much fear as she was able to stand up to Captain Levi for the incident in Stohess, and she later caused a bleeding wound on Jean's head with a branch when he threatened Marlowe.
