Oh and don’t worry, this This video will NOT cover manga spoilers, we’re only talking about what anime viewers should know as of Season 4 Episode 12 .
The Jaegerists are, in short, Eldians from Paradis island, largely with military background training, who believe that Eren and Zeke Jaeger are the future of Eldia, their only chance at survival, and the true leaders of the island. They believe that Eren Jaeger was justified in his attack on Marley from season 4 episode 5, as the nation of Marley instigated violence after spending 100 years dropping Titans off on the island of Paradi. The Jeagerists are in support of Zeke’s plan to activate a Rumbling — which would involve the blood brothers Eren and Zeke making physical contact, causing Zeke’s Royal Blood unlock to unlock Eren’s Founding Titan Power, allowing Eren to wake an unknown number of thewall titans to march onwards towards the rest of the world as a show of The New Eldian Empire’s Power.
