The most important characters of Attack On Titan And the age and height of each.

How old is Eren Yeager

1- Shingeki No Kyojin Personajes – Eren Yeager

Eren Yeager Age: 15
Birthday: May 30
Height: 1.83

Eren is the protagonist of the story. At the beginning of the series he is an impulsive boy with only one mission: to destroy the titans. This is due to various traumatic experiences, including the death of his mother at the hands of one of them. In addition, he is seen to be very spiteful at the incompetence of the military within the walls that have the responsibility to protect citizens, and that is why he decides to join the militia.

Eren and Mikasa were raised together, with Eren’s mother constantly asking Mikasa to protect him. Previously, Grisha Yeager, Eren’s father, was the Ackerman family doctor, and they trusted him very much. This is why it is understandable that Mikasa moved to live with the Yeagers after being orphaned. However, they are technically not family, as Mikasa was never adopted by the Yaegers.

Armin and Eren are very good friends, and Eren used to defend Armin from bullies when they went to classes together. Armin had beliefs that did not align with society, such as that something existed beyond the walls. However, Eren and Mikasa always promised her that they would fulfill her dream of knowing the sea together. This makes Eren very disdainful of the passive society that was willing to live and die within the walls.

He is a very competent fighter, although he can sometimes act without thinking. This often gets him into trouble and he relies heavily on Mikasa to solve those mishaps. In chapter 5 of the series we discover that Eren is an intelligent Titan, that is, a human being who can transform into a Titan at will. This makes it a great tool for your unit and fighting your enemies.

His father’s story helps uncover one of the series’ most surprising mysteries. The knowledge passed down to him and the memories they share due to the heritage of their titans makes Eren have radical ideas towards the Marley government and its people.

  • Founding Titan: As the possessor of the coordinate, having contact with a member of the royal family allows Eren to mark a specific target to attack. This occurred during a brief contact with Dina Fritz, who was attacked by a group of pure Titans after Eren recalled that she was the Titan who murdered his mother.
  • Warhammer Titan: By stealing this Titan from Lara Tybur, Eren can use his hardening and weapon-crafting powers from the Titans’ special crystal to attack and defend.
  • Eren is a very remarkable fighter, graduating fifth in his class from military school.
  • His balance using vertical maneuvering equipment is excellent, as he was able to stay upright with faulty equipment for a few seconds.

Eren Yeager Fun facts

  • His last name is derived from the German word «jäger» , which means hunter.
  • The mangaka decided to give him dark hair so that it would be easier to draw lines of action around him, since he is a very energetic character.
  • Isayama, the mangaka , was very surprised to learn that Eren had gained popularity, as he considered him a character slave to the plot and difficult to understand.
  • His Titan form is based on the martial fighter Yushin Okami.
  • Isayama dismissed the idea that Eren had always known he was a Titan.

How old is Mikasa Ackerman

Mikasa Ackerman age

Mikasa Ackerman Age: 15
Birthday: February 10
Height: 1.76

Mikasa is, hands down, one of the most powerful characters in the series. In addition, she is the second protagonist of the story. After her family was killed by a group of human traffickers, she moved in with Eren Yeager and her parents, Grisha and Carla. She is one of the last descendants of the Japanese shogunate who moved to the Paradis island, related to the Azumabito clan.

Her relationship with Eren is the one that motivates her the most. Despite the fact that they grew up together, it is assumed that Mikasa is in love with him, as she protects him with a very characteristic ferocity. However, Eren doesn’t seem to reciprocate. Interestingly, Mikasa is a pacifist. She never intended to leave the Wall Maria, but would have felt satisfied living the rest of her days locked there with her friends. But because of the promise she made to Eren’s mother, she feels compelled to protect him and join the military.

He also has an extremely close relationship with Armin, whom he adores like a brother. However, his protective nature towards Eren takes precedence, and more than once he has been found able to prioritize Eren’s life over Armin’s.

One reason behind his exceptional combat skills is his lineage. Being part of the Ackerman clan, Mikasa has the blood of outstanding warriors who have fought for years to defend Eldia’s crown. Her last name ties her filially with Levi, another very prominent warrior in history.

Mikasa used to be a much more outgoing and childish girl, however due to her traumatic experiences she abandoned that image and became a stoic and cold adult.

Mikasa Ackerman Abilities

  • Dexterity with vertical equipment: She is called a genius when it comes to her dexterity and agility with 3D equipment.
  • Strength: He has greater physical strength than most men in his unit. He is capable of lifting eight lances of thunder with ease, as well as having the ability to drive them into enemies, and detonate them, without fail.

Mikasa Ackerman Fun facts

  • She is the heaviest woman in the entire series, weighing 68 kg in total.
  • Its design is based on a woman who worked with Isayama. This influenced the fact that Mikasa was Asian, since his original idea was that he was Western like the rest of the characters.
  • Its name is based on the Mikasa ship, of the Japanese imperial army, which was the most important during the war with Russia.
  • The band Veil of Maya has a song called «Mikasa», inspired by the character.

How old is Armin Arlert

Shingeki No Kyojin Armin Arlert age

Armin Arlert Age: 15
Birthday: November 3
Height: 1.69

Armin is the third protagonist of the series. He has been friends with Eren and Mikasa since they were very little. It is thanks to his conviction that Eren decides to find a way to end the titans to know what lies beyond the walls. Armin may not be the most prominent fighter in his group, but he is an extremely crucial strategist for the development of the story.

He has a curious nature that leads him to investigate in depth about the world around him. This also made Armin an easy target for bullies at his school, but he always counted on Mikasa and Eren to defend him. However, this brought him self-esteem issues, as he believed himself a burden to others, but it also made him feel an urgent need to prove his worth.

During his training as a soldier, he felt inferior to other recruits, up to the time of his graduation. Upon graduation, he realized that his intelligence was just as useful in the military as brute force and skill with weapons. Armin is very analytical, and prefers to analyze things to solve them in the least problematic way. This, together with his intelligence, good judgment, good sense and ability to anticipate conflict, make him a very reliable tactician.

After the battle to take back the Shiganshina district, Armin sacrifices himself to capture the colossal titan. Since he did not pass away during the mission, Eren begs Levi to use the Titan’s injection to save him. Shortly after they receive news that Erwin is seriously injured. This leads to a confrontation with Levi where in the end the commander chooses Armin.

Soon after, Armin inherits the colossal titan.

Armin Arlert Abilities

Attack on titan Characters - Colossal Titan
  • Colossal Titan: Like all human Titans, he can recover from serious injuries and transform at will. The Colossal Titan has an explosive transformation that generates hot steam around it, making it especially dangerous in bodies of water. In addition, it can generate steam at will. It has a strength superior to that of other titans, thanks to its size and its regeneration capacity is very fast.
  • Great intelligence: Armin, being physically weak, uses his reasoning and observation skills to evaluate situations on the fly. This has helped his teammates numerous times who do not have as high a capacity for anticipation as Armin’s.

Fun facts

  • He is the only one in Levi’s squad who is not among the top 10 students in military school.
  • Its design on the manga, with a round nose, makes it look weaker, according to Isayama. Also, this makes him unique among his characters.

How old is Levi Ackerman

attack on titan

Age: In their 30s
Birthday: December 25
Height: 1.60

Levi is probably the most popular character in Shingeki No Kyojin . He is the captain of the special operations squad of the scouting brigade. He is known as the strongest soldier that humanity has. This is due to their lineage, as the Ackerman clan was always made up of formidable warriors who defended the throne of Eldia.

Levi had a tough childhood, and thanks to this, he is obsessed with cleanliness. That is why he prefers to present himself to the nines and have his surroundings as neat as possible. Aside from his way of carrying dirt, Levi is a very cold person and difficult to get along with. He often speaks with little consideration and can sometimes even pass for a rude person.

When he lived in the underground area within the walls, he refused to take orders from anyone, until he meets Erwin Smith. However, he used to place all his trust in his comrades and eventually, when he entered the military, in his subordinates. His respect for Erwin Smith is due to the fact that he shares his vision for the brigade. Despite this, Levi often operates alone, personally taking care of difficult titans to avoid further losses.

He shows no empathy for the Titans, killing them in cold blood and without regard. This, however, makes him feel very regretful when he discovers that everyone with Eldia’s blood is capable of becoming Titans. This discovery leads him to the conclusion that all this time he has been murdering human beings, and he feels disgusted at the idea.

Levi can be a character who has the makings of a leader, and has earned the respect of many, but he often loses his mind when people ignore him in difficult decisions. This leads him to react with violence uncharacteristic of his stoicism.

Armin Arlert Abilities

  • Skill with vertical equipment: He is one of the most adept characters when using this equipment, so much so that it is said that he is the best when operating it.
  • Strength and Agility: It is considered as valuable as an entire brigade. Even before joining the military, he was seen as an extremely strong soldier.

Armin Arlert Fun facts

  • Her age is one of the series’ great mysteries, as Isayama has repeatedly refused to give a specific number. The only clues he has given are that he is past his 30s, and that he is older than he appears.
  • At some point, Levi wanted to open a tea shop.
  • He is unable to get drunk, this means that his tolerance to alcohol is very high.
  • Only sleep two to three hours.
  • Levi cuts his hair himself.
  • He does not like to put anything in tea because he cannot afford it financially.

He was the commander of the reconnaissance squad. Very intelligent and cautious, he was an extremely responsible and respected commander. His troops were important to him, but he didn’t hesitate to sacrifice them if it meant saving the rest of humanity. And thanks to how much they admired him, his troops were more than willing to sacrifice themselves at his command.

His personality was always very complex, since he was a serious, calculating and future-conscious man. Although he trusted his men, he was able to quickly discern that they had a spy among the troops, and because of this, he generated a close, closed circle to share sensitive information. He was very eloquent in speaking, and this got Eren out of trouble during the military trial.

Erwin might seem extremely stoic, but he always had unwavering ideals and a great curiosity to know what was beyond the walls. This is the reason why he leads the entire operation back towards Shiganshina, to discover what was hidden in the basement. He even went so far as to prioritize discovering this information and proving his father’s theories were correct, over defending humanity.

Erwin Smith Abilities

  • Fierce and dedicated fighter, capable of sacrificing his own safety if crucial to a mission.

He inherits the title of commander of the reconnaissance squad directly from Erwin, who appoints him before his death. He is tasked with investigating the Titans and making inventions that can hurt them more effectively. His passion for investigating the titans comes after much hatred, since when he joined the squad he felt disdain and disgust towards said creatures.

He is a crucial member of the military, as his intelligence allows him to put together essential tactics to attack the Titans. In addition, he is in charge of designing weapons, and anti-titan cannons are one of his inventions (called «executioners of hell»).

Thanks to his studies, the information provided by Eren and Connie’s conjectures, he comes to the conclusion that all the inhabitants of the island can become Titans, and that originally, they were always human beings. This completely changes the way you study creatures.

Reiner Braun is the main protagonist of the Marley arc. He was an important member of Levi’s squad. However, it turned out to be a traitor sent by Marley to capture the Founding Titan, who turned out to be Eren Yeager. A member of the Marleyan warriors, he is the young man appointed to the Armored Titan. He’s the vice captain of this unit.

He grew up in the closed area of ​​Liberio, as he was the son of a Marleyan man with an Eldian. Thanks to his Eldian heritage, he was selected as one of the children to enter the warriors’ military program. This program is based, in part, on indoctrinating children of the Eldian race to think negatively towards their peers. This causes Reiner to grow up thinking that the people of Paradis Island are monsters.

His childhood was quite complicated, considering that he was a child of mixed blood who was abandoned by his father. This made him withdrawn and quiet, but he had the will to become a warrior, convinced that this would bring his father home. In the year 845 he is sent to Paradis Island along with Bertoldt, Annie and Marcel Galliard to infiltrate the militia and discover who had possession of the Founding Titan.

After losing Marcel when he is eaten by Ymir, Reiner begins to imitate his personality. He becomes a more assertive teenager, even threatening his peers to ensure that they follow his orders. But this did not mean that he was indifferent to them, but on the contrary, Reiner was always deeply faithful to his companions.

This characteristic would prove an obstacle to him when making decisions that could hurt the Eldians, who he also came to see as friends. In Marley’s arc, we notice that Reiner doesn’t hold any kind of grudge towards them. Rather, it humanizes their actions before a people who see them as evil beings.

  • He is highly competent as a soldier and fighter, as well as having exceptional dexterity with special equipment for maneuvering.
  • In hand-to-hand combat he is the best among all his companions.

Pure brown Fun facts

  • Thanks to his confrontation with Eren in the basement, we discover that the regeneration granted him by the Titans depends on his will to live. Reiner at this point in the story has completely lost her, which is why it takes too long to heal after protecting Falco.
  • He is the favorite character of Isayama, the author of the play.

He was the former user of the Colossal Titan, until Armin Arlert devoured him.

Bertholdt was always very quiet, and did not have much willpower, he simply knew how to follow orders. He identified himself as a coward and didn’t have much self-esteem. This behavior allowed her to be the least emotionally involved warrior during his mission. He did not feel any remorse for his actions, much less regret them.

12 - Shingeki no Kyojin Characters - Colossal Titan

  • Bertholdt was the only warrior capable of disappearing his Titan in seconds.

Annie is an exceptional fighter, so much so that she graduated as the fourth most outstanding of her class of recruits. However, she is quite closed and finds it difficult to work with others. She is in charge of espionage among the warriors, infiltrating the underground zone as a refugee to follow Kenny Ackerman, who had connections with royalty.

His apathetic way of treating others does not go unnoticed by Eren and company, who are trying to gain his trust. It can even be said that Annie admires the way of being of Eren, who remains very firm in his convictions. She and the protagonist had different training sessions, with Annie showing him her way of fighting to help him lose his stiffness.

This earns him the jealousy of Mikasa, who came to feel that they were getting too close. Annie also has a complicated relationship with Armin, who constantly visits her during her induced coma and talks to her about all her ex-partners and the progress of their operations.

Despite being a spy, Annie only yearns for a normal life. The only reason she wants to return to Marley is to see her father, whom she loves very much.

He is the sixth best recruit in class 104. He is originally from the Trost district within the Rose Wall, and he joined the militia hoping to have a peaceful life by participating in the police brigade. However, he joined the recognition regime after discovering his own leadership potential.

Jean is very rough and does not think when he speaks, constantly causing conflict. He is so pragmatic that he prefers not to put himself in dangerous situations, which is why he wanted to join the military police, as this guaranteed him a relatively quiet life.

During his time as a student, Jean was easily frustrated, reacting violently most of the time. This immediately makes him an enemy to Eren, as he hated people with unbreakable ideals and «unfulfilled» dreams.

However, Marco, one of his teammates, always saw his leadership potential. Thanks to her own insecurities, Jean was able to stay out of harm’s way and analyze situations quickly. Another important fact is that Jean may seem selfish, but in reality he is very faithful to his companions, and he values ​​the lives of his soldier friends very much.

A member of the 104th class of recruits, he graduated 8th in the class. He is originally from a rural village in the Rose Wall called Ragako. He is a charismatic and sweet character, who always speaks his mind and likes to show off what he can do. However, that sweet and familiar disposition that he had, was corroded little by little due to the tragedies that he has lived through.

Each encounter with the Titans transformed Connie further from a noisy and happy boy to a withdrawn and angry young man. This must also be added to the fact that Connie is one of the first to conclude that all humans on the island can transform into Titans, as she finds her mother transformed into Titan when she visits her ancient village.

This traumatizes him to an irreparable point, transforming him into an angry young man who does not think about the consequences of his actions. Despite this, he is extremely faithful to his companions, especially Sasha and Jean, who became his closest friends in the regiment.

Sasha was always a great friend to her peers, funny and with a friendly personality. At first, she was shy and nervous when faced with stressful situations, but she was very intuitive. In addition, he was very brave, and knew how to judge moments of danger.

She lived through a tough childhood when the Wall Maria was destroyed, as the refugees severely cut back on food supplies. This justifies her passion for eating, as she previously hunted for herself and her family. It also explains his great skill with firearms and excellent marksmanship, as he was the archer of the family.

His great heart and empathy for children was what caused his downfall, as he was unable to kill Gabi Braun when he had her in his sights and established as a threat.

  • She was one of the best snipers in the regiment, having hunted her entire life with a bow and arrow.
  • She knew how to hide very well and was skilled at stealing, as she constantly stole food from the kitchens.

Birthday: August 1
Height: 1.83

Zeke Yeager is the main antagonist of the third season and the user of the Titan Beast. He is the captain of Marley’s warrior unit, whose mission is to recover the Founding Titan from Paradise Island. Zeke is an extremely intelligent character who uses his logic and deduction to manipulate both sides of the war and achieve his own missions.

He is the son of Grisha Yeager and Dina Fritz, which makes him Eren’s half-brother. Furthermore, he is a member of the royal family on his mother’s side. He is intelligent and curious. In his first encounter with a Paradis soldier, he wanted to discover how vertical equipment works, and about their language.

Zeke’s view of Eldians in society is extremely negative, nihilistic even. Since he was a teenager he preferred that his race did not exist, which leads him to think of the possible genocide of Eldia as an acceptable future for his people. This is partly because his entire childhood was, in part, manipulated by his parents and then rejected by all the adults in his life.

Zeke feels very sorry for Eren, whom he sees as another victim of his father. Grisha, when Zeke was young, forced him to join Marley’s warrior program to work as a spy for her cause. Grisha and Dina, his mother, gradually moved away from Zeke in favor of continuing to mobilize the rebels, which generates an excessive resentment on the part of the child. Furthermore, Zeke only interacted with his grandparents, who disowned the Eldians and considered them monsters.

After much rejection and resentment towards his family, Zeke ends up betraying them before the government, saying that they were rebels to an army officer. This causes Grisha and Dina to end up on Paradis Island, but Grisha manages to save herself from being transformed into Pure Titan, and inherits the Attack Titan.
