|We gave Marley both freedom and power in hopes of atonement. But in the end, Eldia and Marley were thrown into darkness. The Tyburs are responsible for that.|
|— Willy Tybur on his family|
The Tybur family (タイバー家 Taibā-ke?) is a house of Eldian nobles living in Marley. They are highly respected as they were the first family to rebel against Karl Fritz and fight to restore Marley in the Great Titan War. Willy Tybur was the head of the family.
Before the Great Titan War, the Tybur family was one of several Eldian houses warring for control over the Nine Titans. By the time war had broken out between Eldia and the remnants of Marley, the Tybur family had possession of the War Hammer Titan. Opposed to the 145th King of the Fritz family, the Tybur family was the first of the Eldian houses to side with Marley in the war. With their aid, Marley gained the upper hand in the Great Titan War, acquiring the support of their Titan as well as that of the Colossal, Armor, Female, Beast, Jaw, and Cart Titans.
In the aftermath of Marley's victory in the war, the Tybur family was praised for their support in the early fighting, and for their service they were granted positions of high nobility as honorary Marleyans, permitted to live on luxurious estates whereas the remaining Eldian population was segregated into internment zones. The Tybur family would keep their high status in society for the next century, swearing loyalty to Marley. However, the Tybur family would not use their War Hammer Titan in conflicts with enemy nations during this century.
In the aftermath of the Marley Mid-East War, Zeke Jaeger grows concerned that the Eldian race has been put at risk with the world's growing technological advantage over the Titans. In order to gain the support of the viewing world for the next mission against Paradis Island, the Tybur family agrees to cooperate with the Warriors by holding a press conference in Liberio during an upcoming festival, where they plan to announce that the island of Paradis will be overtaken within one year.
The Tybur family employs an army of personal guards. In term of appearance, they wear elegant dress uniform consisting of a crimson red tunic and black cross-belts, completing with white trousers and a silver spiked helmet engraved with Marley's emblem. Each guardsman is armed with a rifle and a saber.
Guardsmen tasked to protect the family up close seem to be selected for their outstanding physique. When Magath and Koslow went to meet with Willy, they are brought in by a massive guardsman who is taller than the door frame.
