Quote1 King Fritz was left only with the island of Paradis, where he built three concentric Walls in which he and his people took refuge. Quote2
— Mr. Yeager teaching his son the history of Eldia[1]

Paradis (パラディ Paradi?) is a massive island on which the three Walls are located.[2] The island is surrounded by the ocean and is just off the coast of Marley.[2] Paradis became the Eldia's last territory after the Great Titan War,[1] and it contains the fallen empire's capital.[3] It is populated mostly with Subjects of Ymir, but those who are not live as nobles, with the exceptions of the Ackermans and the Asians.[4]

Marley uses the island as a dumping ground for its Eldian prisoners, turning them into Titans using the Titan injection.[5]


Late into the history of the Eldian Empire, Karl Fritz, the 145th monarch of the Fritz family, chose to abandon the conflict over the Nine Titans between the subservient Eldian families on the continental mainland and moved the capital of Eldia to Paradis, a remote island at the time. In the King's absence, the Great Titan War began. As Eldia lost more and more territory to the Marleyans, the minority bloodlines of the empire, the King gathered as many Eldians and members of the royal family as was possible before raising three Walls around their last piece of undisputed territory in the year 743. Sometime after the raising of the Walls, the new Marley government built a 30-meter border Wall along the southern shore of the island to prevent the Titans from escaping to the ocean.[6] To deal with Eldian prisoners, Marley sends them to the island and turn them into Titans to wander outside the Walls for eternity.[5]

Geography and Climate


An exaggerated representation of the territory of the Walls

The island of Paradis appears to have a temperate climate, with the northern regions of the land being especially cold, rarely exceeding 30° C on the hottest summer days.[7] However, the coldness of the northern regions of the island are alleviated by the occasional presence of hot springs.[8]

A geographical map of Paradis

While it is unknown what area of Paradis the Walls raised by the First King stand on, it is evident that the central region of the Walls is at a higher elevation than the outermost territories. Some regions of the land are home to Titan Forests, where the trees are known to reach as high as 80 meters, possibly due to the unique content of the soil.[9] The island of Paradis is also rich with various minerals and natural resources,[10] which made the land a valuable target for the people of Marley over eighty years after the end of the Great Titan War.[11]


  • The name "Paradis" is French in origin, translating as "paradise".
  • If mirrored vertically, the territories of Marley and Paradis are very similar to the real-life continent of Africa and the island of Madagascar, respectively.
    • The detailed map of Paradis shown in Chapter 98 reveals three rivers on the north end of the island moving inland from the western shores. These rivers roughly correspond with the Onilahy-Imaloto, Mangoky-Mananantanana, and Tsiribihina-Mahajilo Rivers in Madagascar.[12]
