Remember that you will die. Just be sure to decide whether it will be here, or in a Jaeger.
In the year 2017, a Category Four Kaiju brought the Icarus Tempest down in a deadly attack off the shores of Wall Sina. With it went Jean Kirschtein’s beloved co-pilot, and partner, Marco Bodt; his screams still echoing in the Drift long after he was ripped from the control center. Injured and bitter, Jean Kirschtein is discharged from the Jaeger program and grapples with the loss of his leg and his partner. In the year 2019, famed senior pilot Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert and Eren Jaeger, son of founder Grisha Jaeger, engage with a Category Four Kaiju in the Rogue Titan. With the Rogue Titan in shambles, Armin with radiation poisoning and Mikasa and Eren with matching scars, none of the injured pilots expect to step foot in a Jaeger once more.
But war brings people together for all the wrong reasons.
