Look at this cute image I found of Armin and Bertolt.
What the fuck is that?
So, my question is based on the Titan attack at Shiganshina led by Zeke.
The Titans that appear alongside him, presumably at his command, show no form of real intelligence with the exception of the quadrupedal Titan.
They do however react to the orders of Zeke, this would suggest that Zeke has some form of Coordinate-esque ability. If this is the case, would he be tied to that "vow" made by the first king? Or, because he was Dina's child, born outside of Paradis, he is exempt from that rule?
Do you think his injured arm could somehow be involved in his ability to control Titans?
I ask because when he signals the attack, he does so with the Titans equivalent of his uninjured Arm. It's just something that has been on my mind. If you have, or know of any theories regarding this, I would love to see them.
My assumption, which could very well be wholly wrong, is that anyone of Royal Blood has a quasi Coordinate. But the possessor of the Founding Titans Coordinate can override the lesser Coordinate.
If the marks on his arm are a result of Titanisation, I would like to know why they haven't healed. Now, to be fair, since he received the marks, he probably hasn't lost that arm, so there might not be any reason for them to heal. But Levi cut that arm off, so it would be interesting if when we see him again, the marks are gone due to a Shifters healing ability.
It's nice to know I'm not the only one that thinks this.
Do you guys think Mikasa and Levi not being able to kill Reiner has some deeper meaning? Like maybe Ackermans were originally meant to protect the 9 and literally can't kill them. There's also Kenny not being able to kill Uri and Levi hesitating to kill Zeke, and that time when Levi rushed to save Mikasa? Maybe he was subconsciously trying to save Annie
That's not the point, Mikasa felt compassion for BR but it was before all of this. Do not pretend her to care about Bertolt if he literally killed Armin and tried to kill her and the others too.
Because they're completelly different situations, and Bertolt has done nothing wrong before that, right? right. If someone can't give two damns about a man who has been doing everything to help you, of course they will treat someone on a opposite battlefront as nothing put a piece of worthless meat.
She has zero compassion for BR, had zero compassion for Erwin, and zero compassion for Levi or Hanji. It's all about muh me and muh Armin. She never had any compassion for the shifters, they would've died there of bleeding if they weren't shifters. She did go for the kill.
She had compassion, here >>152987504 she could just killed them but she didn't. I don't think Mikasa is right but I understand why she acts like that, she is immature and asocial due to her parent's death. You can say she is selfish and tough but that does not make her a bad person. She did saved Historia once.
