"The female titan can selectively harden parts of her skin to protect it from damage or to enhance her offensive strikes."
"All of the wall's names are female names".

I remember reading about an Inscription mentioning "Sina" as "Mother" in old Norse.I'll see if I can find it.

Why does it make you scared? Female collosal titans more scary than male collosal titans?
Are you saying that that Titan in the wall could be Sina in her titan form?
I always wondered who Maria, Rose and Sina were. I'm sure Isayama will explain who they are by the end of the manga.
The three walls are three women who could assume titan-form like Annie...
I like this theory a lot. The fact that each of the women depicted on the crests is wearing a crown is interesting too. If the religious cult is all to do with bloodlines, Historia's role as a royal child born out of wedlock & the cultists having some reason for not wanting the child's identity to ever be discovered...makes me think Historia is royalty, and thus related to the three female titans who are acting as walls (against their will?? This seems likely as the priest went into a panic that no light should fall on the exposed titan's face)
The fact that Ymir was wandering outside of the walls for 60 years is also very interesting... could she possibly also be related to Historia & the royal sisters?? The fact that human-titans can live for many years would also mean the titans inside the walls have been ALIVE in there for 100+ years, trapped inside the walls maybe in a coma-type state because they've had no light exposure for so long, so can't move. Yes, it's pretty horrifying.

Uh.... doubt it... mainly because there must be more titans in the wall not just one.
What if the colossal titans are just use as foundations and female titans just starting making material with their hardening technique to build the wall.
What if Rose, Maria and Sina were female titan shifters that the ape titan acknowledged?
One female titan in each wall will simply destroy all the theories made to criticize Isayama when the real size of the walls was given in the anime.
Can you fill me in on these criticisms?
I highly doubt that there is only one Titan in each wall. that's saying that Annie just so happened to climb onto the ONE spot of a HUGE wall that contained the SINGLE Titan? Unlikely. And besides that Armin speculated that the wall was filled with titans and so far he's been pretty reliable. And besides that the ending credits depicts a painting of two colossal titans holding hands.
Yes, I was re-reading the face in the wall bit and reading Hanji's speculations about titans all the way around the wall suggests Isayama is emphasising that point. Also, yes, a bit contrived to have them just happen to damage the one place in the wall where the titan happens to be standing... I just like the idea of it one-colossal-titan-per-wall because, referring to the original point of the post, it's creepy to think the female names each wall was given actually refer to some type of sacrifice--actual female shifters with those very names, the actual physical embodiment of the walls.

Also note how the face looks towards humanity
so are the imprisoning/guarding something hidden beneath
the castle in the very center of the walls
something RBA might be looking for or is there
a second row of titans facing in the opposite direction
or was it just for the awe moment?
The names of the Walls always intrigued me and I thought of them being the founders for the said territories. Not just that they are mere wall names, but also they existed and were protecting the humankind from a greater threat. Yes, it could be that the three ladies be female titans (like Annie) and that they bound themselves to each wall.
But I think that more than 1 titan exist inside the walls. I mean, just look at that vast territory! And I don't think that its a coincidence that Annie happened to be climbing over that same wall. Since the walls are at intervals, sort of like a pillar which supports the ground, if you'll see, they are quite the number, I presumed that the each interval in the wall could mean per titan.
Or it could be that Isayama is laughing his head off while his fans are speculating crazily!
