Just like so many other members of the Scout Regiment during this final story, Jean finds herself in a situation that is going to require a lot of thinking. With Eren Jaeger taking the power of the Founding Titan for himself and unleashing hundreds of colossal Titans upon the world to wipe out anyone who isn’t a child of Ymir, Jean must now decide if he will take this opportunity to live a life quiet as a hero of the Survey Corps, or whether he’s risking it all to save a world that has shown him and his people nothing but hate.
