|I can't believe it. For the first time ever, I, a human, spoke with a Titan?|
Ilse was noted to have resembled Ymir in appearance. She had short black hair that was parted to the right side, dark skin, and gold colored eyes with a small patch of freckles below each one. She wore the standard Survey Corps uniform and cape with a grey shirt underneath.
She appeared to be quite emotional, yet brave, trying to stand firm in moments of despair. She seemed to be a very devoted and smart soldier. She also cared about her family, since during her last moments she regretted not being able to give anything back to her parents. She thought of herself as a proud member of the Survey Corps and was resolved to do whatever she could.
During the 34th Expedition outside the Walls, Ilse's entire flank is massacred and she is the only survivor. With her horse lost and her Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear broken, she abandons her gear and flees
afoot north to a nearby forest, trying to find a route to reach the Walls. Knowing that her chances to make it are very low, she takes out a notebook and begins writing her experiences in the hopes that they at least will be useful to humanity.After profuse running, she inadvertently runs into a Titan, which chases her and corners her against a tree. However, instead of immediately eating her, the Titan hesitates and she questions if it is an aberrant. It then somehow starts talking, saying "Ymir's people" and "Ymir-sama", greeting her with deep respect, and bowing.
She is thoroughly confused that the Titan can form speech, and questions it about what the Titans are and where they came from, writing every question and the Titan's reactions in the notebook.However, the Titan does not respond, and instead moans and looks increasingly frustrated. She angrily yells at it asking why Titans eat humans and what their objective is; calling them useless lumps of flesh that should disappear from the world. The frustrated Titan begins to tear off its cheeks, ripping off flesh and spraying blood.
Horrified, Ilse attempts to flee but is quickly caught by the Titan, who begins rapidly crushing her skull with it's teeth. Ilse frantically writes down her last few notes about the experience before her head is crushed and then bitten off. The Titan later stores her corpse in the tree.
One year later, during the 49th Expedition, Hange Zoë and the Special Operations Squad encounter the Titan that killed Ilse. After chasing Hange, it turns the other direction and heads to the tree where it stored her corpse. After almost eating Oluo, it is soon killed by Levi; and only then the team notes Ilse's corpse and her notebook left on the ground.
Hange takes the notebook, and after reading Ilse's experiences, she believes that they are significantly useful to humanity.
