Uhm... so, you can't be Eren anymore? And such?

All the character names which are strikethroughed are those currently played by members, so they can't be played, while the bolded names are canon characters that anybody can pick up and play still.

to be sorted

Do they take criticism well? What happens when they're criticised doing something they believe they're good at?

What is their greatest, rational fear?

Agreed! Just some form of structure, more than what we have which is... kind of a mess.

That makes sense! So the 2nds lieutenants, then the others would be just below them - there's two layers of lieutenants as well so one of the others could be the other lieutenant. If that worked out. And obviously you could have multiple anyway.

I agree with all of that. They definitely had respect - I think the escorts doubling up as Pixis' strategy team seems likely based on what we saw with Trost, because Pixis himself handed over to Armin and Anka-Gustav to work out some of the logistics while he dealt with the speeches. Which also reminds me - they're likely not the only escorts anyway, because they'd have days off of course, so his squad could be comprised of two more (going by the theme of squads of five, one being the leader) who do the duty then, which means all of them may have that kind of structure, outside of the office workers. Anka, based on canon, would be most likely to be the lieutenant in that situation.

I think it would have worked better if they'd said that Pixis was overall leader and then there were four beneath him - south Wall Rose, north Wall Rose, south Wall Sina, north Wall Sina, then probably the same for old Wall Maria or maybe even four there due to the wide spread. Or just one person per district, who also covers one edge of the Wall too - like Orvud commander (spoilers for Chapter 60+).

Great! Would you like me to set up a starter or would you like to write one? And no worries on the delay :)

I've never liked how they've portrayed ranks in AOT because the whole Team Leader vs Captain vs Unit Captain thing is so confusing, and I'm unsure whether it's a translation error or just a lack of militant world-building there. After all, in most media every soldier has a rank, whereas we don't really see that in AOT? I think there's a brief mention of one of Squad Levi being or possibly being lieutenant, or it might be one of Squad Mike, but outside of that... nada.

That's a good point. They'd probably be ranked a little higher than them since they'd do more on bodyguard duty, and for that presumably they'd have needed to climb through some ranks (but most likely not ever been in charge of a team, or if so, it's not necessary to, as their job is more about supporting Pixis). Maybe due to that they're kind of separate to a squad or marked as Pixis' squad, allowing them a bit more movement between places?

Pixis being the commander of the southern territories when we haven't met one single other Garrison commander is... odd. Because obviously we have Nile and then Erwin, who were both total commanders of their regiment, and Pixis is the only one who communicates with either of them, so I'd say he's the only one, but the canon initially disagrees and since then I don't think we've had any follow-up on the Garrison to give us any more detail or clarification?

Definitely need more world-building on ranking XD. And organisation. And structure. Just... make it more militant, less all over the place and not touched on >.> Like having cannon teams, plus the on-ground teams like Hannes started with, the engineers, etc, etc.

I personally think it would go through rank as nepotism seems to be more of a Military Police characteristic than Garrison Regiment - obviously the MP would do it as ranks, but they wouldn't be quite as earned (like there's hints that cadets / people outside of the Top Ten might be able to get into the MP through other means, such as family). It would make the most sense to me that the Garrison, though lazy, is a little more... rigid about those kinds of rules.

Given the manga's German influence, here is a comparison of rankings from the German Army, Waffen-SS, and British Army. Obviously, they don't line up very well with what the manga has, but this is my best shot: Dot Pixis (commander) is equivalent to either a General or a Major/Lieutenant General (depending on: is he JUST the commander of the southern Garrison Regiment, or is he directly equivalent to Nile Dok? I don't recall there being any other Garrison commander of the northern territories, so it sort of depends on what gets revealed, if anything, or what is world-built.

Moving back to the question. Team Leaders are ranked on the wikia below Captains, but Captain in AOT seems to correspond with Major - it makes more sense this way. Unit Captains rank above Team Leaders on the wikia though, so I'm thinking it goes...

Captain = Colonel
Unit Captain = Major
Team Leader = Captain

So then it would make the most sense for Weilman to be up for promotion, as he's in charge of more than just one squad.

Anka and Gustav I imagine aren't even Team Leader ranked, but might be First Lieutenant, as they are in charge of no teams, and their work is primarily serving Pixis. I'm not so familiar with this part of the military and don't know what kinds of key words to try. But that's just my opinion on it all.
