A compulsive food hoarder with an overly polite way of speech, Sasha originates from the Dauper village (a southern district of Wall Rose), a scarcely populated hunting village from the mountains of which others are surprised it still exists. She is one of the new recruits that came in together with Eren and Mikasa, Sasha joins the Scouting Legion despite being terrified of Titans.
Sasha is a usually friendly girl who tends to use formal speech even when conversing amongst other trainees to hide her country accent she had back in her village. She is a simple-minded (shown at the potato incident) and eccentric person. She is rather clumsy at times, and always tries to get what she wants. She also has the urge to eat a lot, this is due to her being raised in the south, where animals got scarce. She is also known as "Potato girl".
Sasha seems to have lived with her father from the Dauper Village from the mountains before joining the Scouting Legion. The Dauper Village is a low populated village which specializes in hunting for food, hence her knowledge and skills for hunting and animal instincts. Sasha left the village to join the military after getting into an argument with her father when he told her they might have to give up their traditional lifestyle of hunting in favor of farming to support the large number of refugees moving to the area after the fall of Wall Maria.
She used to live in the south district of Wall Rose, in a village called Dauper.
On the first day of training, she got into trouble for eating a potato at attention and had to run around for 5 hours and skip dinner. Christa snuck in some bread from the dining room to give Sasha after she passes out from the exercise. Despite her fears, she decided to join the scouting legion.
Sasha was there when she watched the Colossal Titan breach Wall Rose. During her time, her fear of fighting 3-5 meter titans lead to Mikasa having to save her. When Wall Rose was taken back from the titans, she wasn't seen for a while.
Sasha was involved in trying to stop the cunning female titan. She noticed that the Titan was calling out for help.
Later on Sasha and the others are awaiting orders when they learn that Wall Rose has been breached a 2nd time and that they must act quickly. She helps them get through the mountainous regions before returning home. It was there, Sasha spoke in her normal dialect to her father, which she was too embarrassed to do in front of her peers while she was away training in the military.
While riding away with her father's bow and arrow, Sasha saves a child from her fate when she watches a 3 meter Titan slowly devouring her mother. While leading her away, she was brought back to the times where a fellow trainee, Ymir, was taunting her for speaking like a lady and not her true self. This caused her and Christa to fight amongst each other about it. Sasha, upon realizing that the 3 meter titan was following them, tells the little girl to find help right away. Once she's gone, Sasha tries to hold him off with her father's bow and arrow. The only way she could buy some time is if she takes out the titan's eyes. Sasha succeeds by jamming the last arrow in the titan's other eye and his blood was slippery enough for her to dodge being eaten alive. Once she was reunited with her horse, that her father retrieved, he found himself proud of her for the first time and Sasha is glad to be reunited with her father and the villagers.
"Lightning fast, with uncanny intuition. But her eccentricity makes her unfit for group operations"
Sasha is ranked one of the top 10 ten trainees of her squad implying good physical abilities. She was also commented to have one of the better senses of balance out of her trainee squad. As well as physical abilities Sasha as good knowledge of hunting and wild animals, shown when the Female Titan screamed- she knew exactly what the scream meant and that they should be wary. She also seems to be athletic and useful with bow and arrow, injuring a 3m class titan alone with just a bow.
