— Ms. Springer's Titan greets Connie[2]

Ms. Springer is the mother of Connie Springer and a resident in Ragako village. She is transformed into a Titan by Zeke during Wall Rose's supposed breach.[3]After the Eldians lost the Power of the Titans, Ms. Springer was returned to human form.[4]

Appearance

Human form

In her human state, Ms. Springer appeared to be an older woman with bright amber eyes and mild wrinkles. Her dark blonde hair appeared fairly long but was kept in a formal bun. She was only ever seen wearing a semi-formal light colored dress with a short collar for a portrait with her husband. She also had large, light eyes that seemed to be partly sunk in due to age, and she was seen holding a humble, monotone expression.

Pure Titan form

In her Titan form, Ms. Springer has a large head with a wide open mouth and large amber eyes. She has medium length, dark blonde hair flipped upward due to her permanent resting position as a grounded Titan. Her torso is a triangular shape with thin skin, outlining most of her ribs and even showing a few uncovered ones. Her arms and legs are incredibly small and thin skinned, showing bony outlines of her skeleton. Due to her huge head and body with her severely underdeveloped limbs, she is unable to move from her house which she permanently lays in as she was turned into a Titan on the spot, crushing her home.

Personality

Though Ms. Springer appeared to be a calm, humble woman from her portrait, her Titan looks very enthusiastic. Despite being turned into a Titan, she was able to have enough willpower to forcefully mutter out the words "Welcome home," to Connie when she saw him return to their house, happy to see her son alive after the Titans appeared in Wall Rose.[2]

Story

The Female Titan arc

When choosing which branch of the Military to join, Connie reminds himself that his mother would be proud if he joined the Military Police Brigade.[5]

Clash of the Titans arc

Before the Wall Rose invasion, she and the other inhabitants of Ragako village are gassed by a squad of Marleyan soldiers and turned into Pure Titans by Zeke Yeager.[6] Ms. Springer's Titan is deformed, with limbs unable to support her body, leaving her completely immobile.

Connie encounters the Titan

During his patrol of Wall Rose for a breach with the Survey Corps, Connie returns to Ragako to see if his friends and family made it out alive. When he rushes ahead to his home to check on his family, he finds Ms. Springer's Titan stranded in the wreckage.[7] His comrades manage to convince him that his family might have survived, and the group leaves to continue their search.[8] As Connie is leaving, Ms. Springer's Titan manages to mutter the words "Welcome home," shocking him.[9]

Royal Government arc

Hange's reaction after explaining their discovery that Titans used to be humans

After clearing out the Titans in Wall Rose, Connie and Hange Zoë investigate Ms. Springer's Titan. Hange compares a portrait of Ms. Springer with their Titan and is intrigued by the resemblance. The resemblance between the two helps inform Hange's hypothesis that all Titans were originally human.[10]

Connie visits his mother in Ragako shortly before the Survey Corps depart to reclaim Wall Maria.[11]

War for Paradis arc

During Marley's revenge for Liberio, the Survey Corps captures Falco Grice shortly after the boy receives the Jaw Titan in the midst of the battle. While Jean Kirstein believes Falco should be fed to a soldier who was transformed into a Titan by Zeke Yeager's spinal fluid such as Dot Pixis, Connie insists that Falco should be fed to his mother. Armin is against feeding Falco to any Titan lest further hostility with the Warriors continue, but Connie decides regardless to kidnap Falco and escape the battlefield as the others are preoccupied with approaching Titans.[12]

Reaching Ragako village, Connie attempts to have Falco fed to his mother's Titan, but is foiled when Armin shows up and decides to sacrifice himself, forcing Connie to abandon his plan and save Armin. Connie realizes that even if his mother became human again, she would have suffered if she had inherited the Colossus Titan, lamenting how she told him to become a great soldier, but instead he almost killed a child and one of his friends.[13]

After Mikasa Ackerman killed Eren Yeager and stopped the Rumbling, all the remaining Pure Titans reverted back into human form. Connie Springer mentions how Eren Yeager turned his mother back into a human.[4] It is further implied that she was taken in for protection by Queen Historia.

Relationships

Failed attempts

Trivia

  • Ms. Springer is the second Pure Titan shown to speak words with meaning. The first is the Talking Titan.
  • Thanks to the discovery of Ms. Springer, Hange was able to securely deduce that Titans were in fact once humans before being transformed by unknown means.[10]
  • Until reverting back to human from, Ms. Springer was the only known surviving Pure Titan inside the Walls. Her relation to Connie Springer, immobility, and use in scientific research likely justified the Military allowing her to live.
