The government’s desperate attempt to reclaim the lands using the refugees lead into nothing but more casualties; this prompted Mikasa Ackerman to enroll into the army, becoming a member of the 104th Trainees Squad. She quickly proved her skills, was praised as one’a the best trainees in history, and came out on top of her graduating class. Owing to the need to protect her adoptive brother who often ran off looking for trouble, Ackerman honed herself to be a talented fighter at a very young age. Combined with her prodigious skill in 3DMG, she could easily take down Titans with efficiency, leading to her being mentioned as “worth a hundred ordinary soldiers.” With such talent coupled with her own remarkable will, she displayed lethality ‘gainst Titans rarely seen among soldiers; this had been proven when she took on Annie, who had killed numerous experienced veterans with ease, and survived.
