Holger has blond hair which hangs down in front of his eyes. He can be seen wearing a dark coat over a light dress shirt, and long pants.
Like the rest of the Jaegerists, Holger seems to be a man possessing extreme radical tendencies. He is among the Scouts who openly rejoice at having launched a successful attack on Marley, despite the casualties they suffered in the process and feels no qualms about leaking military information to the public or defecting from the military altogether.
Holger participates in the Scout Regiment's raid on Liberio in the year 854. As the Scouts retreat from the battle Holger joins his comrades in celebrating their overwhelming victory against Marley. Their celebrations are interrupted by a girl boarding the airship and shooting Sasha Braus, prompting Holger and the others to beat her and her companion mercilessly.
Following Eren Jaeger's arrest for disobeying orders, Holger is among the soldiers who leak the news of Eren's detainment to the press to pressure the military into releasing him. After they are caught, the perpetrators are all arrested and Hange Zoë says they will be prosecuted.
The rebels are freed from their cells by guards who have also sided with Eren and rendezvous with Eren himself outside of the city. Eren declares that their next objective will be to find and team up with Zeke.
The group receives word from a Marleyan that Hange has arrived at the restaurant he is working at and storm the restaurant to capture her and the other Scout officers that are with her. When Hange refuses to tell them where Zeke is, they take all of the officers captive.
