What are Marleyans in the attack on Titan

Why did Eren go to Marley? Is he Eldian or Marleyan?

Back then, Eren was just a two-dimensional figure with one motif, ie Killing titans, but now he just turned the table over. Everything has gotten complicated and fans aren't sure what to believe and what not to believe.

Once when you thought you understood Eren, he didn't leave today. The plot has turned into a spider web. The jump in time brought so many twists and turns in the plot that it raises dozens of questions. However, Isayama answered a question, the hobo soldier was actually Eren.

But what is Eren doing at Marley? Why is he missing a leg? Why does he have an injured eye? Are its regenerative powers no longer working?

For those looking for an answer without spoilers, Eren purposely does not use his powers to adapt to other soldiers. His sole purpose at Marley is to execute his master plan. If your curiosity is not satisfied, you can read the detailed explanation below.

Please note that the following article may contain spoilers from the manga.

1. Why is Eren in Marley?

Given the long history of the attack on Titan, there is no doubt that Eren is not in Marley, but only as a refugee. He's planning something, something big.

His motive was to bring Zeke back to Eldia. Yelena revealed to Eren Zeke's true intentions. She wanted Eren to know the plan better, so she asked him to meet Zeke in person.

Eating the Warhammer Titan was also part of Eren's calculated plan. He took Zeke away and gained the titan's powers, killing two birds with one stone.

He does everything without the approval of the Survey Corps. He sneaked into Marley's confines with them, but stayed behind to continue his plan.

Also, a possible hidden motive may be that he is there to get rid of the threat that surrounds Paradis Island, i.e. the Marleyans.

Zeke planned to gain the powers of the founding titans. In receiving these powers, he wished to save the Eldians, or rather to sterilize them. Zeke wants the Eldians to die out.

It may look like Eren teamed up with Zeke, but he loathes the agenda he's got in the flux right now. He needs Zeke for his master plan.

2. What exactly happened in Marley?

The whole ordeal of Marley and Eldian happened hundreds of years ago. The existing people have no idea what happened to their ancestors, but they still have to face the effects.

Marleyans are responsible for triggering Eldian into their Titan forms. In the name of justice, they only murder innocent lives. Not very different from bigoted views in real life.

Willy Tybur happens to be part of the nobility who share a similar bigoted view. His speech before the massacre of the Eldians to get revenge and survive is a mockery of Eren's core values.

Although Eren recognized that Marleyans were no different from him, they too are human. Willy's speech declaring war was a perfect moment for a strike. He ate Warhammer Titan and gained his powers. This fiasco claimed many victims and many civilians could not survive.

SPOILERS AHEAD! This page contains spoilers for Attack on Titan.

It has been revealed that Eren can see the future. He knew all along what was pushing him further into this hopeless misery.

3. Is Eren an Eldian or a Marleyan?

The old war caused by the subjects of Ymir resulted in the invasion and demise of the then wealthy Marley. Due to conflict between groups, Eldia was unable to enjoy the top of the hierarchy.

Marley took his chance and attacked Eldia in his vulnerable state. Do you find similarities with the real world? That's the beauty of Attack on Titan. Grisha's basement revealed many dark secrets.

The innocent king of the Eldians remained a pacifist and did little to protect his citizens. That's why Eren made it his business to save his loved ones.

Subjects of Ymir have their blood and can turn into titans. Eren is an Eldian, as is Grisha and Eren's mother.

Being an Eldian has more to do with race than nationality. It doesn't matter if they live on Marleyan lands, if they have their blood they are Eldians.

4. Is Eren planning to destroy the world?

At the beginning of the series, Eren was just an impulsive boy working his way up to kill titans who were stealing everything from him.

But now his cold eyes are saying something else. He seems calm, attentive and very calculating. Eren realized that titans are innocent people who are forced to create a bloodbath.

Eren has always been very goal-oriented. He needs a purpose to survive. The freedom he wanted was never his. The world beyond the ocean brought more despair for him.

The only way to save Paradis Island is to hunt down everyone who wants its doom. Every being outside despises the island.

So is Eren going against humanity?The line between right and wrong doesn't matter to him. There must be some bad choices to achieve its true purpose.

The change of action has already destroyed our brain cells. Only time can tell what he's planning. Let's look forward to the upcoming chapters and episodes!
