She sought counsel from the falcons.

SILKE FALKENRATH
Garrison Regiment | 30s | Mother to Axel


    Naomi Misora (Death Note)  |  Dian Rubens (Spice and Wolf)  |  Ohagi / Jorogumo (Dororo)

she, someone who cuts,
a soldier first, mother last -
driven to defend.

Silke Schneider met Tybalt Falkenrath after a brief station in Shiganshina District as a soldier of the Garrison. Falling in love with the baker, the two married and moved to Trost District after her station was changed. While Tybalt opened a bakery with his friend, Silke aspired to become somebody of worth, though her ambitions were cut short when she became unexpectedly pregnant. She took the hit to her career for Tybalt's happiness, giving birth, thankfully without trouble, to Axel. While her husband raised the boy, allowing her to throw herself back into work, she taught their son how to fight.

Tybalt's journey home to Shiganshina did not trouble her - until news of the Fall of Wall Maria reached her, stationed at the outer gate. It took some time before she heard confirmation of Tybalt's death (via a witness who saw the ruins of the Falkenrath home), and after a long day assisting evacuees, she returned home to inform her son. She urged Axel to become a better fighter for his father's sake. She kept working, determined to guard the Walls for as long as she could, encouraging him to do his best as he enlisted in the military. Though they are not incredibly close, she is proud of all his efforts.

Still stationed in Trost, she might well be within one of the Elite teams, or else still be climbing the ladder to lead her own squad. The Schneider family is open to interpretation. Axel's paternal uncle (Farram, played by Puffin) might be the closest familial connection she has, as her brother-in-law. I envision her as having been the main contributor to Axel's determined, rule-abiding side. She could be loving but hold back, or she could be very strict with him.

[ PLOT IDEAS WITH AXEL ]
I'm very open for more ideas, and depending on what you wish to explore!
× Pre-Wall 'bonding': a series of flashbacks to set up their relationship.
× Axel waits for her to come home after Wall Maria falls, and she returns with news of his father and family dead.
× Silke teaches Axel fighting techniques before he enlists.
× Letter threads, always open to what they're about.
× A festival thread, in which Axel sees his mother once more.
× Post-Utopia: Axel returns home following Utopia for his mother's comfort.
