Krista Lenz is ranked tenth in the trainee class (due to Ymir holding back during the assessment) and later was put into the 41st squad during the invasion of Trost in the year 850. A kind and beautiful girl who is able to show great care for others, she has been described as a "goddess". However, she later develops a fear of facing the Titans and spends much of her time around Ymir who becomes her closest friend.
Originally known as Historia Reiss, the illegitimate child of Lord Reiss, the Head of the Reiss Family, she was shunned by her mother and grandparents who view her as a bother despite her efforts to please them. A few days after the fall of Wall Maria, her father attempted to take her and her mother under his custody but they were intercepted by members of the Wall Cult who views Historia as an unacceptable part of the Reiss Family. She was forced to watch her mother being killed, while confessing that she wished Historia was never born. To save her, her father decides to exile Historia instead of allowing her to be killed, forcing her to adopt the name Krista Lenz a few years before joining the 104th Corps.
Her family holds the secret behind the Titans' true origin and nature and it is also suspected that they are also aware of Titans living behind the Walls in human forms. As such, she is important to the plans of Reiner and Bertolt, and Ymir assists them in capturing her despite her efforts to rescue both Ymir and Eren. While talking to each other, Krista soon learns how much Ymir cares about her and why she really wants to take her away from the Walls. After Ymir leaves to help Reiner and Bertolt, Krista lost that hope and joviality she gave her. While in hiding with Eren, she reveals how empty and lost she was after Ymir left since she was the only one who truly cared for her. Krista's relatives always viewed her as a curse and often ignored her.
Eren soon snaps Krista out of it, telling her that Ymir wouldn't had wanted her to give in to her despair and would liked for her to take back her life. He admitted when she was Krista, she was a bit too creepy and fake. Eren sees that Historia is a nice girl whom was caught up in the middle of her family's conspiracy along with despair of having her relatives reject her for being born illegitimate. Later it is revealed that the Reiss family is the true royal family, with the official monarch being a figurehead for them, making of Historia a true successor to the throne. She and Eren are captured by Captain Ackerman who sees past the Survey Corps' attempt to overthrow King Fritz. An angry Historia has a reunion with her father, Rod, who apologizes for the way he has treated her.
