Military Police Brigade
|Faction Name||Military Police Brigade|
The Military Police Brigade has a unique and elaborate insignia, a rose entwined in a horse's mane, signifying peace and order within its walls. This may imply nobility, but probably more symbolizes their detachment from the horrors that take place beyond the perimeter of the wall. Members of this brigade are equally skilled but less willing to risk their lives to fight the Titans, making them both challenging and conflicted. It's a faction that unequivocally represents the dichotomies presented in the Attack on Titan universe.
The main task of the Military Police Brigade, which was established more than a century ago, is to ensure the safety of the royal family and dignitaries of the palace. As the threat of the Titans grew, their focus shifted from simple protection to holding back against these monstrous foes. But their zealous patronage of the nobility often led to complacency, encouraged corruption, and neglected other vital social needs. The colossal and armored titans who arrived in Paradise in 845 brought drastic changes. For the first time, the Military Police Brigade, initially shielded from the Titan threat by the outer walls, found themselves in direct combat when the Titans breached Maria's wall and turned the battle onto their turf.
This unforeseen disaster led to a restructuring of the brigade, which led to the formation of specialized units to counter the Titan invasion. This move produced great soldiers like Annie Leonhart who fought bravely against the Titans and shed the previous image of leniency that tarnished the reputation of the Military Police Brigade.
Despite this redemption, many challenges remained woven into the fabric of the organization due to years of uninterrupted existence. Constant corruption and infighting have contributed to the internal strife of the Brigade as they balance reform, protection of the realm, and ongoing Titan crises.
Over the years, the Military Police Brigade has evolved from a symbol of power and privilege to a force of resistance and resistance to the Titans. While they still battle their inner demons, their newfound commitment to the survival of humanity has become one of the most important stories in the Attack on Titan universe.
Wall Sina is a fertile and well-provisioned country. This provides enough resources for the military police and the ruling hierarchy to live a comfortable, if not luxurious, life. The geography of their location also influences their behavior, often resulting in aloof and dismissive attitudes towards the constant danger to their outer border counterparts. Their protected and generous environment tends to complacency among members of the military police, questioning their skills and dedication to their mission to ensure the survival of humanity.
Legacy and Impact
Tarnished by internal corruption, cowardice and abuse of power, the military police, in the eyes of many, become representative of the systemic problems plaguing society, which further incites change. Either way, their role in the final victory over the Titans cannot be overlooked. They undergo major reforms and play a vital role in finally defeating the Titans. Their transformation from a symbol of mistrust to a beacon of hope illustrates the themes of redemption and adaptation in the face of dire circumstances that characterize Attack on Titan.
