In an alternate reality, a human named Ymir Fritz became a humanoid giant called a Titan 1,800 years ago after making a contract with the "Devil of All Earth". Though she died 13 years later as side-effect of her new power, it was divided and passed on through her daughters before being divided into nine individuals who established the Eldian Empire. The Founding Titan remained with the Fritz family as they conquered the Marley nation and ruled over it for 1,700 years. But a century before the events of the main storyline, the Eldian king Karl Fritz was disillusioned by his family legacy and orchestrated his nation's downfall with Marley making the Eldians that remained into second class citizens while threatening to exile them to Paradis as mindless Pure Titans.
