Relationship/Affair

Ever since a young age, Eren was filled with the hatred of killing every Titan and wanted to do so without any other thoughts. Since the age of 9, Eren and Mikasa have been living together after Mikasa lost her parents and Eren protected her from bandits. Mikasa had the blood of Ackerman which give her feats of superhuman strength and courage. Eren gave Mikasa his red scarf, which became the symbol of love for Mikasa and she always held it close to herself. She followed and protected Eren in every phase of life and joined the Survey Corps too. Eren was walking a path opposite his friends and had to do anything to protect them from the dangers to come, for which he pushed Mikasa and her love away from him by rejecting her confession. Mikasa loved Eren until the end and had to kill him to end the Titan reign and bring peace to the End Of the World. She said her final goodbye to Eren while she was in his mouth while Titan transformed and had to cut the head off the monster.

Later learned the truth about the world and the people which made him change his mind and he went to declare war on the world outside Paradis Island. He ended up becoming the leader of the Yeagerist Group and successfully activating the Rumbling to flatten the Earth and kill millions of people.
