|After her death, Ymir’s soul was split into nine Titans, who built the Empire of Eldia.|
|— Yeager recounts the origins of the Nine Titans to Grisha|
The Nine Titans ( 九つの巨人 Kokonotsu no Kyojin ? ) were nine Titan powers that had been passed down through the Eldian people for about 2,000 years after the death of Ymir Fritz until the death of Eren Yeager, with each having their own diagnose. [ 4 ] The nine Titan powers were the Founding Titan, the Armored Titan, the Attack Titan, the Beast Titan, the Cart Titan, the Colossus Titan, the Female Titan, the Jaw Titan and the War Hammer Titan .
Around 2,000 years ago, Ymir Fritz obtained the world power of the Titans and became the beginning Titan, which by and by came to be known as the Founding Titan. [ 5 ] Thirteen years former, she died and her power was then divided between her three daughters who had been forced by their beget to consume her remains. [ 6 ] Eventually, the powers would split far into the individual Nine Titans, which were subsequently inherited by nine of her descendants. [ 5 ] The Nine Titans soon destroyed the ancient nation of Marley and conquered the entire continent to build the Eldian Empire. [ 5 ] As family relations play a meaning character in passing and inheriting memories from the previous inheritors of the Titans, [ 7 ] the Nine Titans normally resided within lord families during Eldia ‘s reign. [ 8 ] Examples include the Fritz kin with the Founding Titan and Tybur family with the War Hammer Titan .
The lord families who held the Nine Titans, early than the Fritz family, were in a ceaseless state of matter of conflict with each other, but the Founding Titan had maintained the peace. [ 9 ] When the 145th King, Karl Fritz, inherited the Founding Titan, he held great dishonor for the actions of his people and carried sympathy for Marley. He conspired with the Tybur family as expiation for the actions of their ancestors and fabricated the story of Helos, a Marleyan champion who defeated King Fritz. They succeeded in inciting a civil war, the Great Titan War, with the help of the people of Marley and while Eldia collapsed from the inwardly, Marley seized operate over seven of the Nine Titans, with only the Founding and Attack Titans escaping their grasp. They distributed the Titans they had ( with the exception of the War Hammer Titan ) among Eldians loyal to them known as Warriors. Karl Fritz then moved many Eldians onto Paradis Island and built the Walls by creating thousands of Colossus Titans, which hardened to form three concentric walls. The king then erased the memories of the Eldians on the island, except for a few minority races which were immune to the power of the Founding Titan.
The Tybur family was allowed to keep their Titan because they were the beginning to fight for Marley, leaving them and the Reiss syndicate ( the renamed Fritz family ) the only remaining Eldian houses left with their titan after the war. The Reiss family subsequently lost their colossus to Grisha Yeager in the year 845. After Grisha ‘s Attack Titan eat Frieda Reiss ‘s Founding Titan, the two Titans mixed into one ; this resulted in the issue of Titans being reduced to eight. The numeral was reduced again nine years belated when Eren Yeager ‘s Attack Titan consumed Lara Tybur ‘s War Hammer Titan, bringing the number of Titans down to seven .
Names and attributes
The heights of the Nine Titans varied greatly : the Cart and Jaw Titans were small at 4 and 5 m, respectively, [ 1 ] and the Colossus Titan was enormous at 60 m. [ 2 ] The rest hovered around 15 m, with the Founding and Female Titans being slightly smaller at 13 and 14 megabyte, respectively ; [ 28 ] [ 29 ] the Beast Titan being slightly larger at 17 meter ; [ 30 ] and the Armored and Attack Titans being precisely 15 molarity. [ 31 ] [ 32 ] The War Hammer Titan was besides around 15 thousand. [ 33 ] These heights were definite and it did not matter what the stature of the Pure Titan was before inheriting the might of the Titans. For example, Eren ‘s Pure Titan was primitively 4 megabyte, [ 34 ] but grew to 15 m after inheriting the Attack Titan, and Armin ‘s Pure Titan human body grew from scantily being tall enough to look over the buildings in Shiganshina to the huge 60 megabyte size of the Colossus Titan. The opposite was besides known to occur ; the Pure Titan shape of Falco Grice was approximately the lapp size of the Armored Titan, [ 35 ] but shrank polish to 5 m upon receiving the power of the Jaw Titan. [ 36 ] If an heir possessed two or more titan powers, it appeared that one of them would take precedence over the others. Eren Yeager had both the 13 megabyte Founding Titan and the 15 megabyte Attack Titan, but his Titan mannequin was 15 molarity. Age did not affect the appearance of the Nine Titans. The Warriors ‘ Titan forms remained constant through their childhood and into early adulthood. The only thing that may have changed is the hair, for exercise, Reiner Braun ‘s Armored Titan ‘s hair changed as he aged. [ 37 ]
Some Intelligent Titans could talk while others could not. Those who could not talk had mouths that physically prevented them from proper address, such as Eren ‘s. [ 38 ] The ones that could talk include Ymir, Zeke, Pieck, and Lara Tybur. Speech was not defined by the Nine Titans, as Ymir could talk in her Titan shape while Porco Galliard could not, despite them both having the Jaw Titan. The fact that even some abnormal pure Titans were adequate to of lecture implies that the ability to speak is wholly arbitrary .
Inheritors of the Nine Titans did not adopt the appearance of the previous owners ‘ Titans, as both Ymir and Frieda ‘s Titans ‘ appearances were vastly different from Marcel Galliard and Uri Reiss ‘s Titans, respectively. [ 39 ] [ 40 ] [ 41 ] [ 42 ] The current heir ‘s Titan form did experience certain changes depending on which of the Nine is received, as Ymir ‘s Titan phase gained abrupt claws and teeth after acquiring the Jaw Titan and Armin ‘s Titan shape became much larger after acquiring the Colossus Titan. Eren ‘s Pure Titan class was much smaller than his current form, [ 43 ] and both Ymir ‘s Titan form and Frieda ‘s Titan form were perceptibly more bony than their Titan bodies after inheriting their Titans. [ 44 ] [ 40 ] [ 45 ] [ 46 ] Some of the Titans had been shown to possess the ability to harden. The Armored Titan was particularly skilled at this, being able to naturally harden its integral consistency. It could besides control the areas of hardening, removing armor for more mobility or creating claws on its fingertips and toes. [ 47 ] The Jaw Titan had naturally hard teeth and claws ; [ 25 ] this season was much stronger than normal hardening. [ 48 ] The Female Titan was besides able of hardening : [ 49 ] Annie was able to selectively inure regions of her Titan and even create a protective layer around her human body. The War Hammer Titan took it a step further and could make structures and even weapons out of hardening. [ 50 ] The Attack Titan did not have this as an natural ability, but it could still be gained through speciate serums, such as the case with Eren. [ 51 ] Zeke ‘s Beast Titan could besides harden parts of itself, such as the nape. [ 52 ] [ 53 ]
Inheritors and their titan forms
Full list of inheritors
- Many transformed Titan forms are modeled after mixed martial artists. For instance, the Armored Titan is modeled after Brock Lesnar and the Attack Titan is modeled after Yūshin Okami.
- Grisha Yeager consuming the Founding Titan and Eren Yeager consuming the War Hammer Titan are the only known cases where a person inherits one of the Nine Titans while already having one.
- When inheriting the War Hammer Titan, Eren’s eyes light up. Similarly, a light is also shown in Frieda’s eyes when she was influenced by Karl Fritz’s vow of renouncing war.
- Inheritors of the Nine Titans retained some traits in terms of appearance to their Pure Titan forms. For example, Eren’s Attack Titan had a jagged jawline which resembles his Pure Titan form’s jaw and Armin’s Colossus Titan form shared his Pure Titan’s lack of a nose. Reiner and Bertolt also recognized Ymir’s Jaw Titan as the Pure Titan that ate Marcel.
- Inheritors typically tended to lose control of themselves during their first transformation into a Titan.
- However, Bertolt Hoover was said to have learned how to control his Titan right away.
