|We thought all was lost and were stricken with fear. But he... Only he inspired us.|
|— Floch tells Hitch of Marlo's sacrifice|
Hitch Dreyse (ヒッチ・ドリス Hitchi Dorisu?) is a member of the Military Police Regiment stationed in Stohess District. She is a graduate of the 104th Cadet Corps, though she is not from the same division Eren Jaeger belonged to.
Hitch is a young, fair-skinned woman of average height with a slim build. She has an oval face, large light green eyes with rather long eyelashes and thin eyebrows. Her medium champagne, wavy, shaggy hair is kept in chin-length style with a clump of bangs hanging around her forehead. Hitch usually wears the standard Military Police Regiment uniform, consisting of a short, light brown jacket with the unicorn badges on each shoulder, on the front left pocket and on the center of the back, a light green shirt that she personally prefers to wear, a dark brown sash around the waist covering the hips, white pants, and dark brown knee-high leather boots.
In the year 854 Hitch has straight, well-kept, combed hair cleanly parted to each side without bangs any longer. Her uniform has remained the same except she now wears a white blouse, the Military Police-issued green trench coat and military-issued bolo tie underneath.
Hitch acts immature in certain ways, she has a sarcastic, easygoing personality and seems to mischievously enjoy teasing and needling her fellow officers. She claims she chose to join the Military Police out of laziness, as it is well known that the senior staff are incredibly corrupt and she wanted to benefit from the system herself, but she did not take into account that, as a new recruit, her superiors would dump all their work on her. When Marlo claims to have joined the Military Police for noble reasons, Hitch breaks out into laughter and it is implied that she only got in through dishonorable merits. She does, however, state that she never would have chosen the Military Police if she had known that she would get stuck with all the work, implying that she did in fact earn her way in, and that Boris was merely insulting her.
Though she may act a bit air-headed at times, Hitch has a keen ear and was able to scout out Armin Arlelt when he was gathering water, pointing her rifle at him with no hesitation. When she was later caught by the Scout Regiment she boldly bad-mouths Captain Levi for the deaths of innocent civilians as the result of the destruction of Wall Sina during Annie and Eren's battle as Titans, therefore, Hitch is not selfish and cares about the environment around her. When she managed to escape the capture by the Scouts, she came back to try and bail out Marlo, implying that she cares for her comrades enough to return to danger.
On the day before the 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, Annie Leonhart asks for her roommate Hitch to cover for her absence tomorrow. Hitch agrees, but only on the condition that Annie would accept a task that had been given to Hitch. Her task is to locate Carly Stratmann, daughter of the wealthy merchant Elliot G. Stratmann. Believing that Annie plans to meet a boy tomorrow, she asks who this boy is and is told by Annie that she is meeting a 15-meter Titan. Hitch believes Annie is making a bad joke.
Later that day when Annie sets out to begin her search, Hitch takes the ferry into town and thanks Annie for taking her assignment as she passes by.
A few days after the 57th Scouting Mission, Hitch tries teasing Annie for sleeping late, and Boris Feulner tells her to leave Annie alone. Their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of their superior, who assigns them to protect the Scout Regiment escorts carrying Eren Jaeger through Stohess District that day.
Hitch is later seen in the courtyard with her fellow soldiers, complaining about the harsh amount of work loaded onto the new recruits. When Marlo Freudenberg begins to lecture the group and claims to be the one who will fix up the MPs, Hitch breaks down in laughter at his ideas.
The group are later seen patrolling the streets, on their way to their stations for their work that day. They see some of their superiors selling off their equipment to the market and Marlo goes to confront them. However, they begin seriously beating him and Hitch and Annie are forced to intervene, with Hitch apologizing to them on Marlo's behalf.
After the fight between Annie Leonhart and Eren begins, Stohess is in utter ruin and Hitch can be seen on a rooftop with Marlo and her other comrades, questioning why there would be Titans fighting inside of Wall Sina.
In the aftermath of Eren and Annie's brawl in Stohess, Hitch and Marlo are seen looking at the rubble from the buildings and bodies scattered all over. Hitch notes that the scummiest of all, is that there is not an "official" reason to why all these people died.
Hitch and Marlo are tasked with searching for wanted Scout Regiment members in the forests outside of Trost. Hitch expresses her frustration at what happened in the Stohess District, but her complaints are cut short when she hears someone nearby.
The two find Armin Arlelt collecting water from a nearby river and order him to put his hands up into the air, only to fall into his trap. Mikasa and Levi ambush them and take away their guns and uniforms. Levi questions them about their current positions in the Military Police and Hitch, angry at the Scouts, blames Levi and the entire Military branch for the aftermath of Stohess and for Annie's death. Levi reveals that Annie was the Titan hiding in Stohess and orders that they be escorted to a remote area where they can be released.
Jean Kirschtein leads them away and reveals that he intends to kill the two of them because they are dangerous. As Marlo panics and explains that Levi did not want them to be killed, Jean says that this is his personal decision and the others know nothing. Jean then tries to stab them but trips and loses the knife. Marlo grabs it while Hitch runs and Jean and Marlo struggle over the knife. Hitch returns with a branch, smashing it against the side of Jean's head. Hitch attempts to hit him again, but Marlo stops her, saying that Jean was only testing them.
After the coup, Marlo decides to join the Scout Regiment to help them retake Shiganshina District. Hitch, fearing for his safety, tries to talk him out of it, arguing that he can live comfortably with the honors he will be given for aiding in the coup, but is told off by Marlo.
During his final moments, Marlo thinks of Hitch, theorizing that she is probably still sleeping.
As Armin Arlelt explains his plan for victory against the Colossal Titan to Eren, the now awake Hitch sits on the edge of her bed and stares out her dormitory window, worrying about Marlo and wondering if the operation to retake Wall Maria and humanity's land will be successful.
After the Scout Regiment returns successful, Hitch attends a ceremony to watch as the surviving Scouts are honored for their accomplishments. However, she is left visually distressed after hearing about Marlo's final moments from Floch.
While on duty watching Annie's crystal, Hitch catches Armin Arlelt attempting to touch her, joking that Annie is too popular for a girl who has been asleep for years. The two exit Annie's holding area, discussing the public's growing distrust of the military due to the leaked information.
They arrive at the military's headquarters to find it picketed by an angry mob demanding Eren's release. Hitch is asked to help secure the gate to the building against the mob, and Armin leaves to meet with Commander-in-Chief Zachary.
Shortly afterward, an explosion goes off in Zachary's office, sending his dismembered corpse flying out into full view of the soldiers and protesters. Mikasa and Armin arrive back at the gate, and Hitch demands to know what happened but before they can explain the mob begins chanting "devote your hearts," to the soldiers' horror.
- Marlo Freudenberg - Hitch and Marlo were quite the opposites to each other. Marlo was a serious and passionate person whereas Hitch is carefree and laid-back and would often tease him for his righteous morality. Despite this Hitch has exhibited deep care for Marlo as when she furiously attacked Jean when the latter was threatening him and later tried to dissuade him from joining the Scout Regiment on the mission to retake Shiganshina, fearing for his safety. After hearing how Marlo died during the mission, Hitch was visibly distressed.
- Annie Leonhart - As roommates, assigned to the same squad in Stohess District, the two were in many ways opposites, Annie being stoic and withdrawn while Hitch is outgoing and enjoys an easy life which was why they were not particularly close. Hitch found Annie to be annoying at times due to her dark and antisocial outlook on life, frequently teasing the latter in an effort to provoke a reaction on which Annie would apathetically respond with sarcasm. However, after Annie's disappearance during the fight in Stohess District, Hitch felt anger towards the Scout Regiment, blaming them for losing the opportunity to get to know Annie better, believing she had died in the conflict. But then Hitch was shocked and vivid after learning Annie's true identity as the Female Titan responsible for the destruction in Wall Sina.
