PERSONALITY Keith Sadies Aot
In Aot, Keith was intimidating, strict, and frightening. Because of this, the 104th Training Brigade trainees were cautious and preferred to behave when Keith was around. This included the strong heads like Jean or Eren. His loud voice and commanding voice kept the trainees afraid and submissive. He was attentive and made a positive impression on trainees.
He was attentive and had the ability to see the personality traits of others through their actions, mannerisms and expressions. This was evident when he did a character analysis on some of the 104th Training Brigade trainees.
He was not the brute who was torturing recruits. This was evident when he tried to sabotage Eren’s plan for joining the Exploration Battalion, or when he refused to accept the help of Zulma, whom he had just saved, because he didn’t want him and other recruits in danger.
STORY Keith Sadies Aot
- Main article: Important Turning Point Arch
Keith was part of an extramural expedition in 832.
He met a mysterious man near the edge of a forest during this expedition. He was shocked to see someone wandering into such vast territory without any apparent awareness of danger. Hannes then spoke with him, and he discovered that his name had not been recorded in the civil register. And that he also had amnesia.
Grisha, who remembered his work as a doctor, asked Keith to take him to a hospital to make himself useful. Keith accepted. Keith explained to Grisha the inner workings of the intramural environment. The conversation was interrupted slightly by Carla, a waitress who appeared to warn Grisha against listening to the soldier. This woman undoubtedly wanted to convince Grisha to join the Exploration Battalion.
Keith was shocked by the doctor’s response. He referred to his corps members as the pride and joy of humanity, that they were exceptional men, the chosen ones.
He was a passive observer to the development Grisha/Carla’s relationship, particularly during the plague epidemic, when he brought Carla along to the dispensary, where Grisha worked. He even attended their wedding. We can infer that he was possibly in love with Carla based on his reactions to the above event. He never received the love he had. Keith was also a major in the battalion, following the death of his predecessor.
He was stubborn by nature and refused to accept the Remote Sensing Training that Erwin Smith had developed. This resulted in many soldiers being killed. He was finally able to renounce his major duties and become a drill sergeant in order to train new recruits several years later.
ATTACK OF THE TITANS – BIRTH OF LIVAI
- Main Article: Attack of the Titans-Birth of Livai
On the suggestion of Captain Erwin Smith, he decided to include three young delinquents, including Livai Ackerman and Furlan Church from the Underground City. He had accepted Erwin Smith’s Remote Sensing Training proposal and kept him by his side to continue working on it. He also decided that Erwin wouldn’t have the time to manage recruits and put them under the supervision of Faragon Tarlet. This was ironically because he considered it a disgrace for the battalion.
After returning from meeting with the Royal Government, Erwin commented that it was strange that the budget had been approved. He also noted that Erwin understood that his right-handman was for something. Erwin confirmed his suspicions by telling Keith about a portion of his investigation where Nicholas Lobov was revealed to have been compromised in a financial support to Lang Company. This company is the main supplier to the militia and had plans to divert the budget to the Exploration Battalion. Keith asked Erwin what he planned to do. He took his leave and warned Keith that illegal investigations could lead to him diving into the deep end, making it more difficult to get back up.
Later, the Major sent a new expedition. Arriving in a forest, several titans charged. The first was 15 meters away on the left flank. He took over the first line and ordered the rest to hurry to capture it. However, another Deviant titan, this one 20 meters long, was hiding in the bushes. Then he charged at one of the Chariots belonging to the exploration battalions. Faragon Tarlet was then asked to join his team in pursuing the Deviant. Livai then cut off the Deviant’s neck after the latter was defeated.
Although the next day was pleasant, the sky became cloudy and the Major warned his troops to remain more focused than ever. Unfortunately, the rain began to fall and it was difficult to see beyond a few feet. He knew that the troops would break up and it was going be chaos. Erwin and Major decided to stop the Remote Sensor Formation test operation. They felt sorry for the coming storm. His men were instructed to make sure the signal cartridges were not damaged and to not close their eyes. It was also important to stay in touch with other teams during withdrawal. Erwin could not do anything to stop the worst from happening.
Despite the fact that the Major made a wise decision, the Major did not avoid the worst. However, heavy losses were suffered by soldiers caught by Titans emerging out of the fog. Faragon’s squad was killed, as was Livai.
ARCH OF SHIGANSHINA FALL
- Main article: Arch at Shiganshina Falls
Keith was first seen as a commander of the Exploration Battalion and led a failed expedition beyond the walls. In defeat, his surviving troops returned home to Shiganshina and were observed from far by Eren. He received the news from his mother, the mother of one of his fallen soldiers. The elderly woman was presented with his arm and what was left of him. He tried to reassure her that the death of her son was the best thing for her. He then admitted to the elderly woman that all of their missions had failed and that he had no record of all the deaths he had commanded.
He was there with Grisha on the night of the Fall of the Maria Wall when Grisha learned of Carla’s death from Eren. Grisha was taking his son into the forest, but he did not stop him. He only asked him if it was right for him to put such a burden upon Eren’s shoulders. He told him it was his responsibility to pay vengeance for his wife’s death, but not his son. However, the other adult refused to listen and took Grisha’s son. Keith asked not to follow them. Keith went into the forest after he saw a “strange spark of lightning”. He found Eren’s dead body and took him with him to the forest.
BOW OF THE 104TH TRAINING BOARD
- Main article: Bow to the 104th Training Brigade
Two years later, he was seen again. He had left his command and was now an instructor for the 104th Training Brigade. He was a fearsome and intimidating instructor who asked trainees their names and origins.
First, he was seen intimidating Armin with his yelling and mocking of his ridiculous name. Then he concluded that he would make a good giant pie and turned his head a quarter turn about Armin with his hands. He then asked the third row to look at him while he continued.
Others also passed. The youngest instructor had experienced the same thing. It brought back fond memories. The youngest of the two confessed to the other that he didn’t understand why he was using intimidation. One of them said that it was a “rite to passage” that was intended to make recruits stronger. He was ignoring trainees such as Eren Jager and MikasaAckerman, Annie Leonhart. Bertolt Hover, Reiner Braun , Bertolt Horover, Bertolt Hoover, Annie Leonhart, Bertolt, Bertolt, Reiner Braun , and Ymir. His compatriot replied that he didn’t need to, as he could see the terror they experienced two years prior during the invasion by the titans.
John learned that John wanted to join Special Brigades and he headbutted him. He then broke down. He then attacks Marco bott, telling him that he would make a good servant to the king. Conny Springer gave the left hand salute and he grabbed it, raised his head, and asked him if he was right. He saw Sasha Braus eat a potato, and walked up to her to ask why. Keith offered her a slice of potato and asked her to skip lunch or run until the end. The latter proposition was accepted by her.
He supervised the trainees and gave them instructions about the basic skills test. The trainees had to stand upright and balance on ropes that were tied at their waists. They would have to balance upright with ropes tied around their waists. Eren Jaeger realized he couldn’t perform the stunt and ordered Eren to hold his upper body high. Eren was still unable remove the hair.
He gave him another chance the next day, but if he failed to succeed he would be sent back for clearing the fields.
Eren was temporarily able to stand for a moment, then he turned his back and hit his head. Keith Shardiz appeared to be noticing that something was not right and assumed the equipment was defective.
Eren asked Thomas Wagner for his belt. Eren was able to perform the movement immediately. It was discovered that Eren could execute the movement with even a damaged belt. He would then think of Grisha Jager and say that his son was now a soldier.
Later, he was responsible for directing and instructing the trainees in riding, hand-to–hand combat, and three-dimensional maneuver. He was viewed as a commander, and was critical of Armin’s lack of stamina. He observed that Reinerbraun helped Armin to carry his load to make him more capable of handling it. Reiner Braun was grateful for this.
He carefully observed each trainee’s character and assessed the strength of the group. For more information, see 104th Training Brigade
MAJOR TUNING ARC
- Main Article: Great Turning Point Arc
He had access to his father’s memories during his confrontation with Rhodes Eren. He saw the Maria Wall fall and noticed a strange man. He realized that the man he had seen was his former instructor after he recovered.
He went along with his team to visit Keith at the training base. Keith welcomed them with a friendly smile. He noticed that he didn’t recognize Sasha Brus and was still intimidated. Livai noted that he had made many changes since he was relieved of his majorship in the exploration battalion. Keith was bitter about this mention. He noted that he was not the first major to resign than be killed, and that this was his only merit as a major. Keith noticed how Eren looked a lot like his mother, prompting Eren to ask him what he knew about Eren’s past. Keith stated that he didn’t know anything useful to humanity, and then reminisced about his relationship with Eren’s parents starting with the discovery of Grisha beyond the walls on the night the Maria Wall breach.
In order to fail the test, he also admitted to having sabotage Eren’s 3-dimensional equipment during training. He could only see his failure after seeing Eren’s determination.
RETURN to PARADISE ARCH
- Main Article Return To Paradise Arch
In 854, just a few days following the assassination Generalissimo Daris Zackley Keith Shardiz stood at the top of Shiganshina Fort and was about to launch an imitation of the Titans. Despite this, he recalled that the 109th Training Brigade he was currently leading would continue as planned. He noticed one of his Cadets was looking confused and began to intimidate him with a lot of yelling. After hearing Zulma’s anti-Jager rant, he left him alone but didn’t lash out. He felt more sad than angry.
Frock Vorster led a group of ProJager . Frock demanded his students pledge loyalty to the new Eldia and beat him until he couldn’t stand. Frock threatened to arrest anyone who didn’t comply with his demands. Hansi Zoe refused to help him. He believed that his recruits, who were wimps, were invulnerable to harming him. So he forced them to follow his lead. He was soon lying on the ground, covered in blood, just a few minutes later.
After the invasion by Mahr Keith was liberated by Conny. Springer was shocked and concerned to see him in this state. He responded to his concern by telling him ironically that he had been attacked and was safe to fight the bear.

ARCH OF GREAT TERRASSEMENT
- Main article: Arch of the Great Digging
He was able to participate in the battle despite his injuries. He went to save a group of recruits who were being attacked by titans created from Sieg. In particular, he saved the life Zulma by transforming him into a titan and then shooting him. He instructed his recruits to not fight, just as he had done to them, and commanded them to follow him.
Sergeant Shardiz drew his students to lure the titans of the District of Shiganshina towards the military headquarters in this district, so they could all be killed at once.
He participated in the liquidation the titans right in front of the headquarters.
Zulma later tried to persuade Keith to hide, fearing that the ProJager would pursue him. But Keith refused. They promised to keep him safe, as they knew he would be killed without them. Keith became angry and called them fools. He also admitted that Zulma had beat Keith up without hesitation, calling him a little shit and calling other recruits voluntarily because he didn’t want them to get in trouble with the ProJagers. He instructed the recruits to join the ProJagers and be ready to stand up when it was time.
He witnessed the Shiganshina District Tactical Squad departing from headquarters the next day.
The following day, during the Battle of Paradise Harbor he attempted to sabotage the arrival of the train carrying the Pro-Jager reinforcements. He exposed the track as it passed and caused it to derail.
He later saw the ship depart but noticed that a Mahr soldier was still aboard. He wasn’t the only one. Two Pro-Jagers had seen him from a rooftop and were ready to shoot him. The other one attacked them from behind and shot them. He answered yes to the question of the man that he had shot the reinforcements. The man then asked him why he hadn’t boarded with them. The man replied that he had seen a boat that Paradise had taken to their army. It was powerful enough to quickly catch up to the other boat that had left it. This one was a mere carrier. He wanted it to go. Keith stated that he would be glad to lend a hand.
They climbed into the cruiser and went to the gun shop. Keith told them that Pro-Jager saw them approaching and was already on his way. He told the Mahr that it didn’t really matter as he was going set fire to his gunpowder shop. He said that if he wanted jump, now was the right time. Keith declined the proposal and said that he was just wondering how to end his life after having lived long enough.
He was asked why he had assisted them, when in the end it would be their island that would vanish if he stopped The Great Digging. Keith said that he was impressed by their maturity and were able to guess their intentions. He also realized that they had been betrayed. This had touched a chord with him. He was told by his interlocutor that without his intervention, the departure would have been prevented. If the operation went well, he would be worthy of his place in the pantheon as one of the greatest saviors in the world.
He was also pointed out by this one. He retorted that he didn’t have any reason to be proud of his children’s destruction of the wall. However, he realized that now he would prefer that they live a normal lifestyle. Keith looked at the other man for a moment before realizing that he was actually looking at one of the people who had been responsible for exterminating a portion of his people. Keith didn’t view him as such.
He encouraged him to tell him that he only had respect for him and that the same would be true for his young children. He thanked him and asked his name. The instructor generously extended his rifle to allow him to cut the cruiser. He then returned the question. The man was Theo Magath who is currently Mahr Marshall. Magath uttered his words and fired into the powder, triggering an explosion that took both men to the afterlife.
