|It seems the Tybur family will play that role for us. The keepers of the War Hammer Titan.|
|— Zeke considers the aid of the War Hammer Titan|
The War Hammer Titan, like all the Nine Titans, was brought into the world after the death of Ymir Fritz. In the 1,700 years following her death, the War Hammer Titan was held in the possession of one or several of the warring Eldian houses subservient to the Founding Titan. After these seventeen centuries when the 145th King of the Fritz family abandoned the conflicts of Eldia and relocated to Paradis, the War Hammer Titan had come into the possession of the Tybur family. In the King's absence, the uprising peoples of Marley began the Great Titan War, and the Tybur family were the first Eldians to come to their aid in the early days of the war.
After the Great Titan War, the War Hammer Titan remained in the possession of the Tybur family, who swore to defend the new nation of Marley as honorary Marleyan aristocrats. However, despite their vow, the War Hammer Titan remained unused in battle throughout the next century.
After the Marley Mid-East War, Zeke Yeager develops some concerns towards the fate of the Eldian race given the world's rising technological advantage over the Titans and, by extension, over Marley. In order to improve the reputation of the Eldians in the eyes of other nations, Zeke convinces the Tybur family to support the next attack on Paradis with the power of their War Hammer Titan.
