Attack on Titan Season 3, Episode 10, which is currently available at Chia-Anime, featured a flashback of Kenny Ackerman. It started with Kenny’s failed assassination of Uri Reiss, the late brother of Rod Reiss, who was once considered as the true king of the Walls.

The latest episode of Attack on Titan gave more information about Kenny’s bloodline. The Ackerman Family is a family of warriors who once served the royal government. They began to be persecuted after distancing themselves from the royal family. The details are unknown, but some experience a mysterious awakening and gain abilities exceeding a typical human.
During their conversation, Uri convinced Kenny to serve their family again. Since then, the two became best friends. When Uri was on the verge of death, he told Kenny about his plan to pass the power of the Founding Titan to his brother’s daughter, Frieda Reiss. After learning that he could also turn into a “God” like Uri, Kenny became interested in the power of the Founding Titan.

After beating Rod Reiss’ Titan, Levi saw Kenny with a half-burned face and his body covered with blood. Levi is aware that Kenny can no longer fight back and told his comrade that he can handle the enemy on his own. During their conversation, Kenny showed Levi a Titan injection that he could use to extend his life.
