Connie can be described as an outgoing and cheerful guy. Like any extrovert, he’s a ball of energy. To put it another way, he is a determined guy who never backs down. He isn’t extremely frightened of Titans and charges at them with all he’s got. The giant humanoids can easily be killed by slashing at their nape and Connie’s skills undoubtedly accomplish that.
