— Moses charges a Titan[1]

Moses (モーゼス Mōzesu?) was a member of the Scout Regiment and the first known person to be killed by a Titan at the start of the series. He appeared to show little emotion and was a conditioned soldier.[1]


Moses had unkempt, cheek length, blond hair, and light-green eyes. He was well built and wore the typical uniform of a member of the Scout Regiment along with the common green cloak.


Moses appeared to be a courageous man, as he did not hesitate to engage Titans encountered on expeditions. He also appeared to possess a sense of bravado, declaring during battles that he would teach the Titans "the power of humanity."

Moses' hand

Moses' right arm; all the regiment could retrieve of him

During a mission with the Scout Regiment, Moses' squad begins to take formation around a Titan via horses in order to kill it. He switches to omni-directional mobility gear with his teammates, and attempts to kill the targeted Titan.

When the Scout Regiment returns to the Shiganshina District after their failed expedition, his mother asks for him and Commander Keith Sadies gives her his arm; all that remains of him.[1]
