Over the course of the series, some of the Titans, referred to as Abnormal (奇行種, Kikō-shÅ«), show signs of intelligence. There are humans, such as Eren, who can assume Titan form by possessing the "Titan's power" (巨人の力, Kyojin no Chikara). [vol.  2] This ability is revealed to be tied to a form of cannibalism among Titans where the ability to assume human form is possible by ingesting spinal fluid. The transformation is triggered by a self-inflicted wound but also requires having a clear, specific goal in mind. [ep 19] While in this form, the human's normal body rests in the nape of the neck, connected via masses of muscular tissue. [vol.  2] The Reiss family are later revealed to have the ability to create these types of Titans using a special serum created from a Titan's spinal fluid and control them with a god-like ability that also affects the memories of Subjects of Ymir, the race of Eldians that can turn into Titans. A group of figures with the Titans' Power composed of Reiner, Bertolt, Marcel and Annie were sent by their leader Zeke[volume & issue needed] to infiltrate Wall Maria to find the one who possesses the Founding Titan for an unknown reason, targeting Eren as a result. [vol.  12] It is later revealed that the Titans' origins are connected to the first Titan Ymir Fritz and her Subjects. [ch.  86] It is also revealed that there are nine special Titans in total, whose powers are passed along the Eldian bloodline when one dies; a Subject of Ymir is born with its power unless they are eaten by a Titan who gains their powers. However, once inheriting one of the Nine Titans, the user only has thirteen years left to live at most, as it is the maximum time its body can support it. [volume & issue needed]
