Another celebrated aspect of his worldview was his relativistic impression ; he denied the concept of an objective truth, claiming that everything was a matter of personal opinion. [ 1 ]
Kruger was born to an Eldian family know in Marley. His church father had joined an Eldian revolutionist united states army led by the remnants of the royal Fritz family who remained on the mainland. unfortunately, the army was very ineffective, and its members, including Kruger ‘s founder, were captured and burned animated by the Marley Public Security as Kruger obscure in a water closet. Afterward, he was rescued by friends of his father. erstwhile late, Kruger was able to join the Marley Public Security as a descry thanks to an Eldian doctor who was able to fake his blood tests as he had done for himself sometime earlier. As a spy in the military, Kruger would refer to himself in symmetry with the Restorationists as “ the Owl, ” all while spending his military career turning thousands of Eldians into Titans over the years in order to hide his identity as an cultural Eldian. [ 1 ] While spending his downtime watching blimps with Gross, Kruger caught sight of Grisha and Fay Jaeger following the blimp. Observing their armbands, Kruger deduced that they are from the Liberio imprisonment zone. Because they had left their Internment zone without license, Kruger offered them a choice between hard parturiency or “ physical punishment. ” Grisha nervously chose to take both his and Fay ‘s punishment, and Kruger proceeded to savagely knee him in the stomach. Afterwards, however, Kruger showed a obscure trace of empathy after allowing Grisha to stay with him to watch the colonel blimp, citing that since he was here, he may a well see it. Kruger accompanied his fellow officeholder to inform the Jaegers of Fay ‘s death and observed quietly as they grieved for Fay. Amidst the conversation, he looked into the traumatize Grisha ‘s eyes, seeing pure hatred and a desire for retaliation. [ 2 ] Two years belated Kruger inherited the Attack Titan from an unknown predecessor, gaining the Power of the Titans. [ 1 ] Kruger was present when Grisha was tortured by the Marley Public Security. He asked if he confessed to the Owl ‘s identity, and Grisha assured he did not know. Kruger announced the gravy boat that will send the Restorationists to Paradis Island was fix. During the operation at Paradis Island, Kruger escorts Grisha from the top of a thirty-foot wall, telling Grisha that deoxyadenosine monophosphate punishment for treason, he will be transformed into a Titan. Grisha tells Kruger that he remembers him from all those years back when his sister was murdered, which Kruger happily acknowledges. He calmly watched the Restorationists being turned into mindless Titans and chase after their brother. [ 2 ] As it was Dina Fritz ‘s turn to be transformed, Kruger violently silenced a yell Grisha and held him in seat. Both he and Grisha watched as Dina was turned into a Titan.

When asked why he could not go himself, Kruger revealed that inheritors of the Nine Titans die after thirteen years and he has already reached the end of his tenure. He then explained that all Eldians are connected by paths to the Founding Titan Ymir Fritz once had and that no one can ever be stronger than her, so they die after thirteen years like she did. Grisha then questioned this logic and the Eldian history, which Kruger explained is probably not true from the Marleyan or Eldian perspective.
When Grisha asked Kruger why he allowed Dina to be turned into a Titan, he said that he believed it would be better than having her give birth to royal children for Marley until her end. Grisha tried to turn down Kruger ‘s mission, prompting Kruger to commend Grisha ‘s father for trying to keep his family safe when he knew what happened to Fay. Kruger confronted Grisha, explaining that the reason he chose him was because Grisha sought exemption beyond Liberio ‘s walls. Kruger reminded Grisha that their brothers and sisters paid the price for their exemption, and that those actions will follow them until they are repaid, even after death. As Grisha ultimately agreed, Kruger informed him of the name of the Titan he would be inheriting : the Attack Titan. Kruger then explained the history of the Founding Titan and King Fritz ‘s vow with the Founding Titan renouncing all war.
