OtapediaSasha Blouse - Attack on Titan

Sasha Blouse is a young woman from a hunting village in the mountains named Dauper, which is located south inside Wall Rose. A running joke involving Sasha throughout the series revolves around Sasha eating food and putting anything into her mouth. She is often seen pilfering food like potatoes, bread, meat and more. Even though she is gluttonous, she is a slim and average-sized woman and also happens to be very skilled with the bow.

Since her hometown is a small village in the countryside, she often tries to hide her local accent using formal speech Season 2 Episode 2. She had hoped to live a quiet and peaceful life within her village and continue her somewhat danger-free lifestyle. However, her father encourages her to go out into the world, where she quickly learns that the rest of humanity didn’t have it nearly as easy as she did in her childhood.

Sasha loves food so much that she attacks Krista in an attempt to eat her bread [Chapter 15, Volume 4]. In the Training Corps, she met Krista and Ymir and formed an interesting friendship with them.

“We got our own way o’ living! And no one’s got any reason to stop us!” - Sasha Chapter 36, Volume 9]


  • Name: Sasha Blouse
  • Date of Birth: July 26
  • Height: 168 cm
  • Weight: 55 kg
  • Birthplace: Dauper Village, Southern Wall Rose
  • Appearance: An average-sized woman with black hair that she keeps in a ponytail. She wears a Survey Corps uniform with a gray shirt underneath.


Sasha often presents herself as an overly polite, simple-minded, comical, and aloof young woman from the countryside. Although she is seen as airheaded, she graduated from the training corps with high marks, ranking ninth in her class, the 104th Training Corps. Being from a small village, Sasha is quite conservative in nature and is often interpreted as being naive. However, that changes the day she sees a Titan monster. The Attack on Titan Guidebook suggests that the appearance of the Titans destroyed her conservative views. She joins the 104th Training Corps to fight back and to keep her people’s way of living.

In Season 1 Episode 3 in the anime series, she is caught eating a stolen steamed potato in the midst of training. Commander Keith calls her to attention and sternly asks what she is holding. She responds:

“A steamed potato! It sat there in the mess hall begging to be eaten. Sir!”

“But here? Why eat it here, of all places?”

She responds “It looked quite delicious. And it was getting cold. So I gave it shelter in my stomach, sir.”

“Why? I can’t comprehend. Why would you eat that potato?”

“Are you asking me why people eat potatoes? I’m surprised you don’t know, sir.”

As the scenes pan around everyone’s reactions, they stand dumbfounded at her responses. Shortly after, the scene changes as it follows her running around an empty barren landscape. Her punishment was to run until the sun had set, in addition to losing 5 days of meal privileges.

A Hungry Village Girl

Her polite tone is a method that Sasha uses to cover her accent, as she is insecure about it and her countryside upbringing. In Season 2, Episode 2, Ymir approaches her and criticizes Sasha for hiding her identity and being someone she is not.

Sasha’s story is revealed in Season 2, Episode 2. In this episode, she is seen fighting her father over smoked meat, which was supposed to be stored for the winter. Unfortunately, he fails to prevent her from eating the meat, though he continues to explain why keeping the food in storage was important.

Sasha’s father explains that the forests have been shrinking due to the growing population of refugees. This, in turn, affected the animal populations, whether it be from overhunting or deforestation. After the fall of Wall Maria, food was becoming increasingly scarce and there was hardly enough game in the nearby forests to keep everyone fed.

After Wall Maria had been breached, people who lost their homes had to take refuge near Sasha’s village, Dauper. With the increase in the number of people in the area, her father suggests giving the refugees the forests so they could till the land and create fields and grow crops while the villagers tend to the horses, though Sasha herself disagrees with this idea.

Sasha’s father reminds her that clearing forests and planting grain would allow for more people to eat. Although their way of life was being threatened, the father suggests that helping people was the right thing to do, as humans are all connected despite there being differences in culture and ways of life. He suggested that Sasha be a part of a different society or die trying to preserve their way of living. Sasha’s father highlighted the importance of the teamwork and cooperation of humanity, including Sasha, that is needed to survive against the Titans.

“We’ve lived here all our lives, just like the way our ancestors taught us.”

“If you’re not there for them, don’t expect them to be there for you.” the father exclaims.
