— Braun charges a Titan[2]

Moses Braun (モーゼス・ブラウン Mōzesu Buraun?) was a member of the Survey Corps and the first known person to be killed by a Titan at the beginning of the series. He appeared to show great passion for humanity and was a conditioned soldier.[3]


Braun had unkempt, cheek length, light hair. He was well built and wore the typical uniform of a member of the Survey Corps along with the common green cloak.


Braun 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 the human race."


Prologue arc

During a mission with the Survey Corps, Braun's squad begins to take formation around a Titan via horses in order to kill it. He switches to vertical maneuvering equipment with his teammates, and attempts to kill the targeted Titan.

When the Survey Corps returns to Shiganshina District after their failed expedition, his mother asks for him and commander Keith Shadis gives her Braun's arm; all that remains of him.[4]


  • The relation between Braun's family and the Braun family from which Reiner Braun hails, if any relation exists, is unknown.
  • Moses is a biblical prophet, famous for his participation in the Exodus and the creation of the Torah. In the story of the Twelve Spies, he sends one man from each of the twelve tribes of Israel to explore Canaan, and at their return, they describe the land as being inhabited by giants and surrounded by large walls.[5]
  • In German, his surname "Braun" means "brown."
