All about the original nine Titans in Attack on Titan

The Titans in Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) are terrifying and fascinating. And, as we all know, not all forces are equally irrational or approximate. There are nine particularly powerful titans that are the foundation of this universe and they are quite different from each other.

Over the course of the animation's three existing seasons, viewers encounter many of the original Nine Titans. Examples include Beast Titans, Giants and Armor – a lot of work for Aaron, Mikasa and others. Below is a brief description of the powers of each of the original nine titans, which emerged after the death of Ymir Fritz, the first to awaken the power of the titans.

It is worth remembering that in Part of the History of the Nine Titans you may end up finding some light spoilers about the Anime, its origin and the walk of history.

The Story of the Nine Titans

About 2,000 years ago, Ymir Fritz obtained the power of the Titans and became the first Titan, who was later known as the Founding Titan.

Thirteen years later, she died and her power was then divided between her three daughters who had been forced by their father to consume her remains.

Eventually, the powers would split even further into the individual Nine Titans, who were later inherited by nine of their own. descendants.

The Nine Titans soon destroyed the ancient nation of Marley and conquered the entire continent to build the Eldian Empire.

As family relationships play a significant role in the passing and inheritance of memories from the Titans' previous heirs, the Nine Titans typically resided in noble families during Eldia's reign.

The Nine Titans fighting each other in the Great War of the Titans

The noble families that held the Nine Titans, in addition to the Fritz family, were in a constant state of conflict with each other, but the Founding Titan kept the peace.

When the 145th King, Karl Fritz, inherited the Founding Titan, he was deeply ashamed of the actions of his people and carried sympathy for Marley. He conspired with the Tybur family as atonement for the actions of his ancestors and fabricated the story of Helos, a Marleyan hero who defeated King Fritz.

They managed to incite a civil war, the Great War of the Titans, with the help of Marley's people, and as Eldia collapsed from within, Marley took control of seven of the Nine Titans, with only the Founding and Attacking Titans escaping. your claws.

They distributed the Titans they had (with the exception of the Warhammer Titan) among the Eldians loyal to them known as the Warriors. Karl Fritz then moved many Eldians to Paradis Island and built the Walls 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 who were immune to the Founding Titan's power.

The Tybur family were allowed to keep their Titan because they were the first to fight for Marley, leaving them and the Reiss family (the renamed Fritz family) the only remaining Eldian houses that stayed with their Titan after the war.

The Reiss family later lost their Titan to Grisha Yeager in the year 845. After Grisha's Attack Titan ate Frieda Reiss' Founding Titan, the two Titans merged into one; this resulted in the number of Titans being reduced to eight.

Founding Titan 

Linked to other types of titans, he can control the minds of other creatures. Not only can he force other titans to perform specific actions, he can also change their memories - but in theory, this is only possible if the humans who dominate him are of real blood or come into contact with a true blood titan.

Currently under the control of Annie Leonhart, the Female Titan terrorized many of Attack on Titan's humans.
