Mikasa Ackerman is the adopted child of the Yeager family. She is the last known person of Asian descent living within the Walls. She is a quiet and withdrawn girl and maintains a near constant stoic expression, except when Eren is in danger. When Mikasa's parents are killed by slave traders right in front of her very eyes, she goes into shock until Eren saves her and motivates her to fight and have the will to live. As a result of the incident, and her subsequent adoption into the Yeager family, she is very protective of Eren, and follows him wherever she can in joining the military and its related divisions and squads. In the cadet corps, she graduates at the top of the class. She is regarded by officers as an unprecedented genius and prodigy, easily worth a hundred men in battle. In the author's blog, Isayama notes that her name comes from the Mikasa, a battleship from the Imperial Japanese Navy.
