Annie's inheritance of the Female Titan in Attack on Titan and the events that followed constitute one of the most complex and tragic arcs in the series.
The Female Titan played a big role in the Shingeki No Kyojin manga. When she first appeared, she immediately became the main antagonist of the time. However, after she used her hardening ability to keep herself in a crystal, the story focused on more conscious characters. Now that she is back, she has become very important to the story and readers are eager to see what happens to her.
Many things have happened to Annie, the only known heir of the Female Titan, throughout the series and fans may not remember everything. There are some things they will need to know before the series ends.
The ring she uses to transform herself has become a much sought after item by cosplayers. Luckily, you can find it on sale here !
1. She was the subject of experiments
In one of the most recent chapters of the manga, Falco brings Annie to remember her early days as a Female Titan. At that time, she was experimented on because of her power to acquire the abilities of the other nine Titans. Mahr wanted to see what she would be able to do and what she couldn't do, which is why she had powers that her classmates also had.
2. She can shout to call other titans to fight for her
One of the most useful powers of the Female Titan is the ability to summon other titans and have them fight her opponents. She used this ability when she attacked Shiganshina. While Bertolt and Reiner used their titans to enter Paradise, she was the one who brought the titans into the walls. She also did this after the Exploration Battalion trapped her and she was able to escape into the chaos.
3. Annie was chosen as the heir because of her martial arts skills
Because of Annie's experience in martial arts, Mahr decided that she would be a good user of the Female Titan. At the same time, Marcel, Bertolt, and Reiner were chosen to be the Jaw Titan, the Colossal Titan, and the Battleship Titan, respectively.
After proving that they had what it took to destroy an entire nation, Mahr sent his Warriors to Paradise and hoped that they could inherit the Original Titan, making Mahr the most powerful country in the world. However, their plan would not become a reality.
4. Annie was trained to become a titan by her father for his own selfish purposes
Annie and her father had a very interesting relationship. He adopted her after she ended up in the internment zone and hoped that he could train her to become a titan so that he could be a Marh of honor. He was the one who taught her how to fight.
However, after she did what he wanted and became a warrior, he regretted the way he had treated her and realized that he was not a good father. Her return from Heaven became the most important thing to him, even though she made her so strong that she used her fighting skills to hurt his legs considerably.
5. Annie considered returning to mahr to find her father
Between his arrival in Paradise and his arrival at the Maria Wall, Marcel was eaten by Ymir, taking the power of the Jaw Titan. Annie, Reiner and Bertolt ran away and argued about what to do next. While Reiner wanted to continue their mission and was willing to do anything to get them to join him, Annie wanted to return to Mahr, hoping to find her father, as that had become her goal.
Eventually, Reiner was able to convince his comrades to attack Paradise and search for the Original Titan. As a result, Annie has not seen her father since.
6. Annie was forced to kill soldiers she had befriended
Although she may seem cold and uncaring, Annie actually considered the members of the 104th Training Brigade to be her friends. After the Warrior Unit left for Paradise, they joined the Army and met the people they would spend the next few years with. During this time, Annie tried to present herself as a loner so as not to become attached to her victims.
Throughout the series, she struggled with several of them. In one case, Reiner had forced her to help him leave Marco to be eaten by a titan. She was devastated that she had to kill her comrade but still did what the Dreadnought Titan asked of her.
7. Annie joined the special brigade in its search for the original titan
When they found out that Eren was the Titan Assassin, the three warriors changed their plan. Unaware that he was also the Original Titan, Reiner and Bertolt joined the Exploration Battalion to keep an eye on him, while Annie joined the Special Squad to find the Original Titan.
Although she didn't know them long, fans saw her interactions with Marlowe and Hitch. She had to escape her new allies, as well as the rest of the Special Brigade, when she attacked the Exploration Battalion as a Female Titan.
8. The female titan's hardening ability is an excellent defense, but it left annie frozen for years
Like her cry, Annie's use of hardening has helped her greatly. After losing her battle with Eren and Mikasa, Annie remembered her promise to return to her father. She had to choose between dying or being trapped in a crystal. She chose to use her hardening powers to save her life, but she couldn't move a muscle for years.
Hitch ended up watching her after discovering that her roommate was the Female Titan. Armin also visited her until she was finally released.
9. After being freed, annie went back to fighting alongside her friends in the exploration battalion
After Eren unlocked everything, the Eldians and Mahrs were so focused on the walls becoming the Colossal Titans they once were that most of them didn't even think about Annie's freedom. When Armin mentioned this, he was shocked to find her behind him.
She decided to join him and the few other people in Paradise who decided to convince Eren to stop the Great Earthquake. She no longer needed to manipulate the allies she had made in the 104th training brigade, as they were now fighting for the same thing as the warrior unit.
10. Annie is finally tired of fighting
After believing that Eren had killed her father, Annie decided not to help her comrades stop him. She gave up all hope for the only purpose she had and never wanted to fight any of them, including Eren. She decided to leave the Exploration Battalion and most of the Warrior Unit.
However, she did join Falco, Gabi and Kiyomi. Falco reminded her of the experiments she had undergone and revealed that he had discovered that an ancient heir to the Bestial Titan was capable of flight. Thinking that he could do the same, readers are eager to see what happens to them at the end of the series.
