The protagonist of the series, who after witnessing his mother being devoured by a Titan dedicates the rest of his life to their eradication. However, after graduating fifth in his cadet training group, he is devoured by a bearded Titan on his first mission in Trost, losing an arm and his legs in the process.
When a 15-meter (49 ft) Titan appears and starts attacking other Titans, showing Eren's combat skills, it is ultimately revealed that this new Titan is Eren, and that he has an ability to transform into one. He returned to normal form with his limbs restored.
The ability makes him the target of not only those who wish to eradicate the Titans and free humanity from its fate of being stuck within the Walls, but also those who wish to keep the status quo and stifle any possible insurgencies from rallying behind him as a possible savior of humanity.
Author Hajime Isayama stated that Eren's Titan form's physique was modeled after middleweight mixed martial artist Yushin Okami.
For the English language adaptation of the television series, voice actor Bryce Papenbrook, already a fan of the series, enjoyed voicing Eren, including the character's guttural screams and the "raw sound" and "disgusting and dirty" voice of Eren's Titan form.
