- 1820 years ago, a girl named Ymir Fritz made a contract with the devil to receive the power of the Titans. When she died, her soul split into 9 separate Titans who built the Eldian Empire.
- They used that power to conquer a nation called Marley & almost drove other races to extinction. This lasted for 1700 years until the Great Titan War.
- The war began when 145th king of Eldians, King Fritz inherited the Founding Titan & failed to use its power to maintain peace. During this period, Marley somehow captured 7 of the 9 Titan powers 80 years ago, ensuring their victory.
- Most of the remaining Eldians retreated to the island of Paradis, led by King Fritz. There they built 3 surrounding walls for protection. A group of Eldians were left behind in Marley & lived as second-class citizens due to their ancestors.
- The ‘Eldian Restoration Movement’ has an informant in the Marley government called ‘The Owl’, who has been leading the group from the shadows.
- He supplies documents that supposedly refute Marley’s version of history. According to Grisha, Ymir Fritz used the power of the Titans to cultivate the land & bring wealth to the people of the world, not genocide & enslavement.
- The Owl also sends a woman named Dina Fritz, who is the last remaining descendant of the royal family. She eventually marries Grisha & they have a son named Zeke, whom Grisha believes is the chosen one due to his royal blood.
- The Marley government claims that King Fritz will soon declare war & they plan to recruit select Eldian children to inherit the 7 Titan powers that they possess. The recruits will also be considered ‘honorary Marleyans’. The Owl informs the ERM that this is a cover for Marley to attack Paradis for its resources.
- They also learn that Marley has not attacked Paradis in the past because King Fritz had threatened to release millions of Titans from the walls if provoked.
- The Founding Titan that was taken to Paradis is crucial to the revivial of Eldia & since their goals line up with Marley i.e. infiltrate the walls & capture the Founding Titan, Grisha enlists his son as a Marley soldier.
- Zeke eventually betrays his parents & the ERM to the Marley government & they’re all sent to “paradise”; to roam the island of Paradis as mindless Titans forever.
