Mikasa's father (ミカサの父 Mikasa no chichi?)[3] was the father of Mikasa Ackermann and husband of Mikasa's mother. He and his family lived in a forest near the Shiganshina District.


A man appearing to be in his mid 30's. He had short blond hair with gold colored eyes, as well as a little stubble on his chin. The look of his clothing suggests that he was a commoner.


He seemed to be a lighthearted but hard-working man. When asked by Mikasa how babies were made, he jokingly claimed he did not know and suggested she ask Dr. Jaeger when he arrives.[1]


It is hinted that Mikasa's father, or a close relative of his, was driven into poverty due to their business failing. As such, Mikasa's father and his family lived in the woods within the Shiganshina District to avoid persecution from the government. He hunted and most likely helped with the gardening as a means to support his family.[1]

Mikasa's father's corpse

While waiting for Dr. Jaeger to arrive, his life, as well as his wife's life, was cut short. All due to bandits who intended to sell both his wife and daughter on the black market, due to them being the last Asians. He was stabbed one time after opening his door, and died before having a chance to realize what happened. Later his body is found by Dr. Jaeger when he comes to visit, stating that he and his wife had been dead for hours.[1]


Royal Government arc

Mikasa recalls her parents

When Captain Levi Ackermann speaks about Kenny Ackermann, he asks Mikasa if she was possibly related to him. Mikasa retells that when her parents were alive they told her that her father's family, the Ackermann bloodline, was persecuted inside the cities and that her Oriental mother's family lost a place to live inside the cities as well, possibly because of her race. Mikasa then states that her parents met as fellow people who had been driven into the mountains and out of the cities and got married. She claims that her father never knew why the Ackermanns were discriminated against and that they were not of a different race like her mother was.[4]
