Find Grisha Yeager (as a Titan, failed). Dina Yeager, neé Fritz, also known as the Smiling Titan, is a minor yet pivotal antagonist in the anime/manga series Attack on Titan. She is the mother of Zeke Yeager, former stepmother of Eren Yeager and the Titan who killed Eren's mother, Carla, during the invasion of Wall Maria, driving Eren to take revenge against the Titans. She serves as a major antagonist in the Fall of Shiganshina arc and as the final antagonist in the Clash of the Titans arc. She returns as a flashback character in the Return to Shiganshina arc, the Marley arc and the War for Paradis arc, mostly as a human. Five years after their first encounter, Eren encounters the Smiling Titan again during his first fight with the Armored Titan.
She kills Hannes in front of Mikasa and Eren. Eren, who is by now an Intelligent Titan, unknowingly uses the power of the Coordinate against the Smiling Titan, which works thanks to Dina's royal blood, resulting with Dina being devoured by other Pure Titans. Eren and the rest of the Survey Corps witness this as they escape the Armored Titan. The life of this woman-turned-monster had been full of contradiction and tragedy that only ended with her death at the hands of Eren Yeager, who, after learning the Titans' origins, loses his hatred for her and Pure Titans in general. She is voiced by Nozomi Kishimoto in the Japanese version, and by Erika Harlacher in the English dubbed. The "Smiling Titan" is 46-50 feet tall and it is shown to lack intelligence like other Titans in its class. Its main distinguishing feature is its characteristic grinning smile; in which its lips are fixed wide open, exposing its teeth and gums within at all times. In the anime, the white part of its right eye is a luminescent yellow color, reminiscent of heterochromia. The Smiling Titan has a thin emaciated frame with stocky proportions, in which its ribs are visibly apparent, and it is possessed an unusually long neck.
39; cause like they had, their teachings were too much for young Zeke who suffered identity crisis.
It has medium-length dark hair that only barely reaches down its head. Though it is like many other Titans in terms of its instinct to seek out and eat humans, it is shown to kill Carla before devouring her. Dina Yeager was born Dina Fritz, a direct bloodline of the Fritz royal family; that makes Dina a distant relative of Historia Reiss of Reiss Family. She, along with her husband Grisha Yeager, was a core member of Eldian Restorationists, an underground organization in the Liberio Internment Zone comprised of discontented Eldians in Marley seeking to overthrow the nation's government. Eventually, Grisha and Dina fell in love and married, giving birth to Zeke Yeager. Although she and Grisha attempted to raise Zeke as a loyal Eldian devoted to the Restorationists' cause like they had, their teachings were too much for young Zeke who suffered identity crisis. It was fully revealed in chapter 114, that she and her husband Grisha indoctrinated their son Zeke very harshly to the point of brainwashing, never stop to think about how burdening their indoctrination must be for Zeke. Dina and Grisha also tried to force Zeke to shorten his lifespan by having him join the Warrior program to inherit a Titan power and infiltrate the Paradis Island Operation so he could steal the Founding Titan from both Paradis and Marley and bring it to Liberio to further the Restorationists' agenda. Ultimately Zeke, urged by his mentor Tom Xaver and to save the lives of his grandparents as well as his own, betrayed his parents and tipped them off to Marley's Public Security Authorities.
Grisha and Dina were arrested and all the Eldian restorationists, except their leader "Owl", were purged in a single day. Grisha and Dina, along with their fellow restorationists, were condemned to transformation into Titans, to wonder mindlessly in Paradis Island. Before she was turned into a Titan, Dina promised that she would find Grisha, no matter what she would become. Just before she was transformed by Sergeant Major Gross, Dina smiled in acceptance of her fate, causing her Titan form to bear it's signature joker-like grin. The "Smiling Titan" is the unofficial name of Dina's Pure Titan that was notable for killing Eren's mother, Carla Yeager, the new wife of her former husband during the invasion of Wall Maria. Before entering the destroyed gate of Shiganshina District, Dina showed Abnormal Titan behavior when she ignored the child Warrior Bertolt Hoover, who was standing in front of her, missing her chance to return human by inheriting the Colossal Titan. It is revealed in the manga final chapter, that Eren Yeager from the future used the power of the Coordinate to control Dina's Titan and make her ignore Bertolt, because according to Eren it was not his time to die yet (the same reason why he left Rod Reiss alive on the same year).
6 New Age Ways To Manga
Eren used his power to direct Dina specifically to his parents' house at Shiganshina, so that she could eat his own mother Carla and drive the events of the story, basically manipulating his younger self. When the Colossal Titan breached through the walls of the Shiganshina District, many Titans proceeded inside and among such Titans was the Smiling Titan: Dina came to where Grisha lived, just like she vowed to him that she would, and immediately went after the house of her husband, where her stepson Eren and Grisha's new wife, Carla lived. It embarked inside the town and was witnessed by Eren and Mikasa as they tried to free Carla under debris. Though Hannes initially came to their aid and decided to face the Smiling Titan, he stood catatonic in fear of its frightening appearance. After Hannes realized that he was too afraid to face it, he opted to take Eren and Mikasa to safety, leaving Eren's mother behind. Afterward, Eren witnessed the Smiling Titan pull Carla out of the debris, as it proceeded to violently incapacitate her and devouring her thereafter. This incident, along with the other horrors of the attack on Shiganshina, would instill a hatred of all Titans within Eren. During Eren's days training to enlist into the military, this incident is shown to have left a traumatizing impact on Eren. This was evident when he was approached by his fellow classmates about his impressions regarding normal Titans, in which Eren experienced a flashback of the Smiling Titan devouring Carla; associating normal Titans to the trauma caused by the Smiling Titan.
He remains silent and is visibly shaken by the thought, until maintaining his composure in front of his classmates and shrugging it off as if he were unaffected by their questions. 5 years later, after Eren had already joined the Survey Corps, the Smiling Titan would appear again before Eren and Mikasa outside the Forest of Giant Trees during the military's pursuit of the Armored Titan, Bertholdt Hoover and Ymir, who had kidnapped Eren and Historia Reiss. After the Armored Titan resorted to throwing the pure Titans in the Survey Corps' direction, the resounding crashes attracted the Smiling Titan's attention, and her appearance horrifies Eren and Mikasa. Hannes tries to fight the Titan off in an attempt to both protect Eren and Mikasa, and to make up for failing to stop Carla from being eaten. Unfortunately, the Smiling Titan manages to catch and then devoured him in a similar manner to Carla, right in front of Eren and Mikasa. After being encouraged by Mikasa, Eren, utilising his hatred and wish for her death, unknowingly activates the powers of the Founding Titan and punches her hand away just as she is about to grab him. The surrounding Titans, sensing Eren's desire/unknowing command for her death, attack the Smiling Titan and devour her, allowing Eren and Mikasa to escape and avenging Carla and Hannes.
In general, Eren never thought much about the Smiling Titan, other than seeing her in his traumatized mind, nor expressed a wish to hunt it down before she met her by chance again. He just saw her as another of the many giant monsters he equally hated with a passion. After finding out that Titans might be all of human origins from Ymir's background and the discovery of Connie Springer's mother, Eren starts to abandon his hatred for the Titans and never thinks about Dina, focusing his vendetta on Reiner Braun and Bertolt Hoover instead, until the reveal of the truth of the world after visiting Grisha Yeager's basement in Shiganshina District. As he acknowledges that Pure Titans are just victims and people being "tormented by a nightmare", Eren wonders who is the responsible for all this and who should take the blame. After discovering the truth of the world, Eren learns his father's background from his diary, one of the three books he left, and discovers that Grisha was married to a woman of royal blood named Dina when he lived in Marley, and that they had a son named Zeke, as well as receiving definitive confirmation that all the Titans in the world are indeed humans, as the Survey Corps speculated. Eren later unlocks Grisha's memories and personally witnesses all his background through his own eyes and perspective, seeing the outside world, his deceased child aunt Faye, Liberio in Marley, the Eldian Restorationists, the truth behind the military's Warrior Unit, the ocean, and the deportation of criminal Marley Eldians to "Heaven" on Paradis Island, where they are made into Pure Titans.
Much to his horror, Eren finds out the Smiling Titan was Dina Fritz all along and realizes that the Titans were just as much as victims as the people they killed, all of them being Subjects of Ymir living in Marley's internment zones. Eren later realized that the only reason he managed to control Pure Titans, back during the chase against the Armored Titan, was because he made physical contact with Dina's Titan, a member of the Eldian royal family. This makes him realize if he touches a Titan with royal blood, he will be able to use the power of the Coordinate in his Founding Titan. Upon realizing that his real enemies are not Titans, but the entire world, Eren begins to change and becomes disillusioned with his dream of a free wild world outside the Walls. Eren develops pity and sadness for the Titans, especially after discovering his relation to Dina herself. Born as royal bloodline of Ymir Fritz, she spent her life dedicated to freeing her people, also living her full life as a spouse and as a mother. However, all of her diligent life came to a tragic end the moment she turned into a Titan: as a Titan she left a deep, profound psychological scar on Grisha's new family, slaughtering the very people she was once dedicated to saving, she died violently as a mortal enemy of her own people. However, other than Titan eating a Titan-shifter, there was no way Dina could return to being a human ever again. To make matters even worse, Grisha, the man whom she vowed to find no matter what, was no longer among the living after the Shiganshina disaster struck. She could've been forever condemned to search for the man who was no longer alive. So her death, violent and tragic as it was, was the only way to give Dina an end to her suffering. The scene of Carla Yeager's death is depicted slightly different in the anime and manga. In the manga, the Smiling Titan squeezed her until her spine snaps, making her vomit blood and twitch in its hand before it ate her, whereas, in the anime, it simply breaks her spine off-screen with both hands, showing the Smiling Titan biting downwards with blood spraying afterward.
