The Orvud Garrison commander seems to be a responsible individual overwhelmed by unusual circumstances. Though anxious and on the verge of panic, he is willing to stand up to Erwin Smith when it is his job to evacuate the citizens of Orvud District, but he is still level-headed enough to understand Erwin's plan and ultimately go along with it.
When Erwin Smith brings word to the commander that an abnormal Titan is heading toward Orvud, he is bewildered when Erwin reveals that he is not planning on evacuating the city. Erwin explains that they will have to use Orvud's citizens as bait to attract the Titan, but that they will order an emergency evacuation of the district in order to keep its civilians safe in the event that they are unlikely to stop the Titan's progression, to which the commander begrudgingly agrees.
As the Titan approaches Orvud, the commander directs his soldiers to keep a constant barrage of cannon fire on the Titan. As the Titan reaches the Wall, they are able to get a clear view of its nape, but before they can fire, the wind changes direction, causing their vision to become obscured by the Titan's steam. As the Titan raises itself over the Wall, the commander orders his soldiers to retreat, lamenting the town he grew up in will be destroyed. However, his sorrow is interrupted by Levi Ackerman, who tells him that his squad will finish off the Titan.
