A lineup of God Eaters. From left to right: Nana, Romeo, Gilbert, Ciel, Julius, Kanon, Emil, Erina, Haruomi.

The God Eaters are the titular group of characters in the God Eater series. Like the God Arcs and the Aragami, they are the character focus in the game's story and gameplay. There are different generations of God Eaters: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations. The 3rd generation of God Eaters are said to have greater potential than the previous two. 1st generation God Eaters are the regular army and old types, 2nd generations consist of regular new types, and the 3rd generation are currently only members of Blood.


God Eaters are humans who have been found to be compatible with one of the God Arcs- living Aragami weapons made to harm and devour other Aragami- which they are paired to with Fenrir's "aptitude tests", and they are thus trained to use such formidable weapons to fight against the Aragami.

A person does not choose to be a God Eater in the strictest sense- in exchange for coming under the protection of Fenrir and receiving rations, a person's genetic code is taken and added to Fenrir's database, and every time a God Arc is either built or becomes available (due to the retirement or, more likely, death of its previous owner) the database is consulted for potential matches.

If a person is found to be a match, they must comply with Fenrir's demand and become a God Eater. The prospective God Eater is brought to a station and put through aptitude tests; if these are passed, the final stage is to be fused with an armlet- a crucial item needed to control a God Arc. This is an extremely painful and dangerous process, and there is a low- but not miniscule- chance of failing and dying at this crucial stage.

Should a God Eater survive, however, they are bonded with a God Arc, and can commence their duties of hunting and slaying Aragami. Their armlet is now fused to them, and is the crucial link between human and God Arc- it provides regular injections of Bias Factor, an Aragami-derived compound that ensures they won't be eaten by their own weapon. Should the armlet be damaged or removed, this Bias Factor cannot be supplied and the unlucky God Eater will find themselves devoured in a matter of minutes or days; as shown in the cases of Kate Lawry and Lindow Amamiya. Lindow, however, is a special case- he is, to date, the only God Eater to lose his armlet and escape with their humanity intact, though not without disfigurement.

Despite the sacrifices and danger required to become a God Eater, however, they are paid handsomely for their work- some of the highest wages in Fenrir, in fact. Some skilled individuals can make it to the point where they can retire in relative peace. These individuals have their armlet sealed and they are no longer required for active duty, though some will continue to work in an administrative or training role- Tsubaki Amamiya is one such God Eater.

All branches of Fenrir divided God Eaters to each unit numbers, except Fenrir America Branch they are using NATO phonetic alphabet (as seen in Return of the Messiah) instead of numbers.

God Eater Children

God Eaters are not prohibited from having children and raising a family. The children of God Eaters are often born with a Bias Factor already present in their body; this affords them unique abilities and powers compared to a baseline God Eater.

There are two examples in the main series:

  • Soma Schicksal, who was born as part of the Managarm Project and the first person to be injected with the P73 Bias Factor, having been administered the compound whilst still in the womb. Despite the official failure of the project and the death of his mother during his birth, Soma developed into an extremely strong God Eater.
  • Nana Kozuki, the daughter of a 1st Generation God Eater named Yoshino Kozuki. Nana was born with with a high Blood Power potential due to the Bias Factor in her body, so she was drafted into Blood to learn to awake and control this power. Notably, Nana seems to have had her Blood Power (to attract Aragami attention across a long range) from a very young age, but simply could not control or use it consciously until it was fully awoken with the help of the rest of the Blood Unit.
