— Keith Shadis (Episode 4)
Jean is 175 centimeters tall. He has short, brown hair with buzz cut style on the sides.
He has a brash personality and tends to do things without thinking such as fleeing from a Titan with a broken 3D Maneuver Gear. At times, he is humble when he tells Marco that he would not make a good leader.
- Eren Jaeger - At first, Jean mocks Eren's ambitions to wipe out all of the Titans. Though, Jean respects Eren when Eren manage to boost everyone's morale. Once Jean finds out that Eren can transform into a Titan, he makes Eren promise to them that their lives and the rest of the 104th are in their hands.
- Marco Bodt - They are good friends. Despite what Jean had said about not being a good leader, Marco states that Jean is weak, but he believes that helps Jean relate more to the other soldiers.
- Armin Arelet - Jean and Armin work well to aid Eren and their friends during times of hardships. They watch each others' backs.
