Axel Striker is a member of the Survey Corps. He posses an ancient sword by the name of Magni. He is also the owner of Magnus' crystal. He was raised in the Underground, but was born outside of the walls. He is the leader of the Shadow Guardians of Germany.
Axel has short black undercut hair that he has parted into a curtain style. He has a chubby and round face, with not a very defined jawline. Axel used to wear glasses, however he refuses to wear them now. He has Asian eyes with a double eyelid, due to him being half European. His head is smaller in proportion to the rest of his body, and he is rather thin. Axel has a small amount of muscle, but he does have a lot of strength. He has bigger thighs than most boys, but that was because he was born female. He has top surgery scars on his chest.
He now has a fake leg since he lost it in the 57th Expedition.
Axel wears the Survey Corps jacket with a white collared shirt underneath.
His casual attire is an assortment of t-shirts with logos on them and black skinny jeans. He wears a red jacket.
Axel is quiet, however he can be charismatic and loud when he needs to be. He has no problems going against human morals and the law, which is shown multiple times. He doesn't panic under stress and remains unnaturally calm. He likes to feel superior to others, and enjoys it when people are scared of him. He does have a fun-loving side, as shown when he sings, dances and acts immature.
Axel is self-centered and doesn't care much for others. He has no qualms with leading others to death. Axel is not a natural leader, as he does not have a commanding voice or intimidating presence. He is rather chill about most things, but does get angry over certain things if they aren't done right. He often jokes that people only listen to him when he has a knife.
It is often hard to tell when Axel is joking or being serious, which can cause younger or weaker people to be afraid of him. Growing up in the Underground meant he was overprotective of his belongings and often does not want to part with his money.
Humanities Comeback arc Edit
Axel joins the Trainee Corps again because of Marco convincing him to. Shadis finds out that he had quit before, and slaps him on the ear, yelling at him to not do it again. Axel had graduated a couple years early due to much begging from the Survey Corps to have him.
The Struggle for Trost arc Edit
He gets put in a squad with a bunch of trainees. He was stuck back at the walls as a punishment with Jeong. The two had scared a couple of horses and Commander Erwin had punished them. The two lose all the trainees, causing Axel to distance himself from people even more.
Axel helps fight against the titans in HQ. He does not seem shocked when the mysterious titan appeared, and carried on fighting titans. He runs out of gas, but luckily Andrew swoops in a puts him safely the HQ building. Axel helps defeat the titans, and he refills his gas afterwards.
Axel's combat skills are better than most soldiers, mainly because he is used to handling weapons. Without a knife, he is rather useless. Axel knows all the weak spots on the human body, and knows where to cause the most damage. He was taught this by Marco, and it was enhanced in training.
Axel can fuse with normal titans, he has not attempted with a shifter, and control it. It uses lots of strength and is very dangerous. If he was unable to get out of the titan in time, he would be stuck as a mangled mess. Axel fuses by jumping on a titans nape and holding his hands against it's skin. He doesn't do it often, and probably won't do it that much, since the first time he had done it he didn't get off the titan in time and lost the skin off half his body. He also lost his waist down.
Axel teleports to get out of trouble, however it seems like he cannot do this all the time. It uses energy from his crystal, so he doesn't use it often.
Marco Colombo - Marco was Axel's adoptive father. He raised Axel for eight years, before leaving him to Levi. Axel admired Marc more than his biological father, mainly because Marc raised him better than his father did. Marco tried to do his best for Axel and wants him to have a better life than he did. This is shown when he convinced Axel to join the Training Corps again. Marc was accepting of Axel being transgender, and also helped his son transition to a boy.
Choi Jeong - Jeong is Axel's best friend. The two were friends before joining the Survey Corps. Axel gets alone with Jeong mainly because he shares his love/hate relationship with K-pop. Jeong's parents taught Axel and the rest of Jeong's friends how to read, speak and write Korean. The two also shared many inside jokes, and would give each other stupid advice. Axel often states how Jeong shaped who he is, and couldn't bear to think about what it'd be like to sing along to BTS and SHINee by himself.
Andrew Huang - Andrew is Axel's other best friend. Axel and Jeong would always annoy Andrew, either by calling him 'Hooang', which is mocking the way others pronounce his last name, or how tall he is compared to them. Andrew didn't mind this, and still the two get along well.
Gunther Schultz - Gunther and Axel did not know each other for very long, barely a year, but they were still quite close. They had a romantic relationship, and cared for each other as shown when Axel saves Gunther in the forest and in return Gunther helps Axel at the cost of his left arm.
- Axel is ambidextrous.
- He was said to be the best dancer out of all the 104th Trainees.
