Marlene (マレーネ Marēne?) was a member of the Survey Corps and the team leader (班長 Hanchō?) of Squad Marlene during the mission to reclaim Wall Maria.


Marlene was a woman of average height and build, and had shoulder-length blonde hair with bright eyes. When not wearing the Survey Corps' typical uniform, her attire consisted of a white button-up shirt, dark pants, and an overcoat.


Not much is known about her personality, but she was shown to be a somewhat cheerful person, as evidenced by her taunting Hange Zoë after a meeting.[2]


Return to Shiganshina arc

Marlene is seen attending a meeting with Erwin Smith and the rest of the Survey Corps' officers to discuss the recent revelations about Eren's father Grisha Yeager.[3]

Marlene participates in the Survey Corps' mission to retake Wall Maria, and after the emergence of the Beast Titan and its forces,[4] Marlene's team is ordered by Erwin to regroup with Dirk and Klaus' teams to guard the Corps' horses.[5] She and her fellow soldiers fight off nearby Titans to protect the recruits in Dirk's team while they move the Corps' horses to a safe place. During the fighting, however, Marlene and her team are killed by the Beast Titan, which starts throwing crushed boulders at them, ripping them all to pieces.[6][7]


  • Hange Zoë - Marlene and Hange had a close relationship with each other, and were seemingly old acquaintances.[1] She seemed to take pleasure from teasing Hange and giving her a hard time.


  • During her appearances, Marlene's hair is drawn inconsistently, alternating between being parted down the middle, and having her bangs pulled back out of her eyes.
