Pieck (ピーク Pīku?) is an Eldian who serves as one of Marley's Warriors and is the current inheritor of the Cart Titan.

Appearance

Human form

Pieck's appearance

Pieck is a short young woman with long, disheveled shoulder-length black hair, a Greek nose and relaxed downturned gray eyes. She wears a white blouse, a long light trench coat, and skirt which goes down to her ankles as well as black lace-up boots. She also wears an Eldian armband on her left arm, as required of all Eldians under the authority of Marley.

In her younger years, Pieck wore her hair in a ponytail.

Cart Titan form

In her Titan form, Pieck is 4m tall while on all fours and walks on all four limbs in a quadrupedal fashion. Her torso is long and flat, allowing for materials to be easily packed onto her back. Her face is elongated, bearing full lips and a large nose with a tiny forehead and a large mouth. It has short, black hair and has no distinct female features, and its long face allows for custom armor, jaws, and war mechanisms to be crafted and strapped to it.

Personality

Pieck is shown to be somewhat sweet and kind, consistently shown to care about her fellow Warriors and the Warrior candidates. She is incredibly intelligent, able to quickly deduce a situation. When the Warriors were discussing the prospect of using the Tybur family to assist in their operations, Pieck was able to quickly figure things out, and Zeke Jaeger implies this happens quite often. However, Pieck is usually shown to be quite eccentric and easy going. During the train ride to Liberio, Pieck gladly gave Colt Grice a drink when he asked for one, which led to him getting drunk and leading the other Eldian soldiers in a chant in favor of Gabi Braun. As a result of spending a long time in her Titan form, Pieck has shown the habit of crawling around on all-fours in private, stating that it feels more natural, and even curling up on a sofa like a cat.

Story

Return to Shiganshina arc

Pieck acts as a lookout

Pieck is one of the Warriors brought by Zeke Jaeger to engage the Scout Regiment in Shiganshina District in the year 850. During the night before the Scouts' arrival, Pieck keeps watch for their movement in the desolate regions of Wall Maria south of Trost District. Upon seeing the advancing soldiers, she returns to the ruins of Shiganshina and informs Zeke, Reiner Braun, and Bertholdt Hoover of their approach.[3]

Pieck remains with Zeke's Beast Titan, serving as a cargo mule of sorts for the Warriors' various supplies. Erwin Smith notices her presence and correctly deduces by the luggage on her back that she was not among the recently transformed Pure Titans, and is instead an Intelligent Titan functioning as the Warriors' scout.[2] Bertholdt is kept hidden in a barrel atop Pieck's back as a plan B against the Scout Regiment, and upon Reiner's defeat at the hands of the Scouts' Thunder Spears, Bertholdt is removed from her Titan's back and thrown by the Beast Titan into the city.[3] Shortly afterward, Pieck fetches nearby boulders for the Beast Titan to use against the Scouts.[4]

Pieck rescues Zeke

The Scouts choose to engage in a suicidal charge against the Beast Titan in order to buy time for Captain Levi to move in for a counterattack. As Zeke decimates the Scouts, he is quickly defeated by Levi who catches him unaware. Before Zeke can be captured by Levi, Pieck comes to his rescue and carries his dismembered human form away.[5] Zeke guides Pieck into Shiganshina to rescue Reiner and Bertholdt, only to find Bertholdt incapacitated and captured by Eren Jaeger. After seeing Levi atop the Wall, they decide to abandon Bertholdt. Searching elsewhere in the district, the Cart Titan rescues Reiner from capture before climbing atop Wall Maria where the Warriors are safe.[6]

Marley arc

Pieck enters the battle at Fort Slava

Pieck is present at the battle of Fort Slava at the climax of the war between Marley and the Mid-East Allied Forces. While Colt Grice suggests that she should engage in combat with the fort's defenses, Commander Magath denied the suggestion due to the presence of an anti-Titan artillery which could kill any Titan with a single 150mm round. Once the artillery is destroyed, Pieck enters the battlefield with her Cart Titan fully armored and equipped with four manned machine guns and begins to assault the bunkers of the Mid-East Allied Forces alongside Porco Galliard's Jaw Titan.[1]

After the battle, Pieck joins Galliard and Reiner Braun, recovering from his injuries received in the battle. As a result of spending two consecutive months in her Titan form, Pieck has been forced to walk with a crutch. After finding Galliard harassing Reiner, Pieck suggests that Reiner visit the Warrior Candidates while she stays with Galliard. She tells Reiner to go find the Warrior candidates.

While the Eldian unit is returning to Liberio via train Pieck agrees to give Colt Grice alcohol, leading the soldiers to throw a party in Gabi Braun's honor. As the Warriors depart the train, Galliard chastens Pieck for giving Colt alcohol, but the two Warriors both congratulate Gabi on her accomplishments. The unit returns to the Liberio Internment Zone, where Pieck reunites with her father.

The next day Pieck attends a private meeting with her fellow Warriors to discuss the prospects of returning to Paradis to reclaim the Founding Titan. Zeke suggests using the Tybur family to try to rile up the world's nations into uniting against Paradis, and Pieck notes that their words will carry weight with foreign nations due to their betrayal and defeat of the Fritz family.[7]

Pieck is later seen at the Warrior headquarters, spotted by Galliard walking on all fours like her Titan, as she believes it to be more natural. Galliard, irritated, tells her to walk on two feet like a normal human. The two attend a military meeting discussing the logistics of an assault on Paradis Island and join their fellow Warriors in watching the candidates train afterward.

Pieck attends Willy Tybur's festival with Reiner, Galliard, and the candidates. After the festival, she and the other Warriors gather to watch Willy's play.[8] After they are seated, a Marleyan soldier informs the Warriors that Magath wants to see them. Along the way, the soldier dismisses Zeke, causing Pieck to become suspicious. She comments that the soldier feels familiar, but becomes distracted when she sees the Panzer Unit that operates the artillery her Cart Titan carries in battle. The soldier leads Pieck and Galliard to an empty building, and she realizes that they have been led into a trap as the soldier cuts a nearby rope. It opens a trap door beneath her and Galliard.

Pieck and Galliard fall into a Warrior confinement area, fracturing their bones in the process. They observe the lack of space to transform, so decide to wait with the supplies provided. Galliard questions the identity and intentions of the soldier who trapped them. Pieck states that she is not sure, but she remembers the soldier from somewhere before.[9] Later, the two begin to feel tremors from outside. Pieck deduces that the tremors are from Titans fighting outside and that this would be the reason they were trapped. While discussing a means of escape, her Panzer Unit comes to the Warriors' rescue. She explains to Galliard that she took safety measures because of their suspicious escort. The soldiers let down a rope and help the Warriors climb out of the pit.

Pieck's unit informs them about the Attack Titan's sudden appearance, and how the War Hammer Titan is currently engaging it in battle. Pieck orders her unit to prepare her Titan's armor, and Galliard prepares to go and join the battle. Before he leaves, Pieck suggests that he observe the situation for a while so they can better understand the enemy attacking them. They are then shocked to see a group of soldiers fly over them using ODM gear. As the others stare in awe, Pieck recalls seeing the same technology during her brief time on Paradis Island.[10]

Abilities

Power of the Titans

Pieck has the power to transform herself into a Titan known as the Cart Titan (車力の巨人 Shariki no Kyojin?).

  • Speed: Pieck's Titan possesses great speed. During the Battle of Shiganshina District, Pieck was able to successfully retake Zeke from his devastated Beast Titan form during his fight against Levi Ackermann, he himself noted for his immense speed. This incapacitated him long enough for them to make their escape.
  • Enhanced Strength: Like all humans with the power of the Titans, Pieck's Titan form is physically stronger than Pure Titans, despite its small size. Due to the unique appearance of the Cart Titan, she is oftentimes used as a pack mule, being able to carry barrels and crates across her Titan's back.
  • Communication: Pieck is one of the few Titan inheritors seen to be capable of fluent speech without issue in her Titan form. During the Return to Shiganshina arc, she acted as a scout for Zeke and Reiner, warning them of the incoming enemy soldiers.
