|— Levi urges Eren to act|
Levi Ackermann ( リヴァイ・アッカーマン Rivai Akkāman ? ), often formally referred to as Captain Levi ( リヴァイ兵長 Rivai Heichō ? ), is the police squad captain ( 兵士長 Heishichō ?, fall. “ drawing card of the soldiers ” ) of the special Operations Squad within the Scout Regiment, and is said to be humanity ‘s strongest soldier. [ 1 ]
Levi has short, straight black hair styled in an tenderloin, equally well as specialize, intimidating steel gloomy eyes with dark circles under them and a deceptively youthful face. He is quite short, but his human body is well-developed in muscular structure from across-the-board omni-directional mobility gear usage. He is normally either frowning or deadpan ; that, plus his extremely composure demeanor, frequently makes it difficult for others to guess what he is thinking. He is most much seen in his Scout Regiment uniform, with a light grey button-up shirt underneath along with his brand white ascot, though since the coup d’etat d’etat, he has lef it off. When embarking on expeditions outside the Walls, he besides wears the Scout Regiment ‘s green-hooded clothe ; like the rest of the Scouts who traveled and fought against the Marleyan troops, Levi wore the new all black variant of the Scout Regiment ‘s uniform. When forced to take leave from his duties ascribable to injury, Levi was seen in a black suit, plain white shirt, ascot, and preen shoes. After a close-encounter explosion from a Thunder Spear set off by Zeke Jaeger, Levi now has several scars across his face including one across his right center and is missing both the index and middle fingers on his right hired hand. [ 14 ]
Levi is described as a “ clean freak ” by those who know him personally, as he prefers his environment and himself to be spotlessly clean. He is antipathetic to having either himself or his equipment soiled, and he has been known to wipe down his blood-smeared blades while calm on the battlefield. however, he will not hesitate to touch filth if he deems it necessary. [ 5 ] Despite his preoccupation with cleanliness, Levi is harsh and not very accessible. He rarely shows emotion, giving a cold stamp to others. His manner of speaking tends to be deaden and contemptuous, his comments are frequently coarse or differently inappropriate, and he is not above provoking or belittling those who oppose or irritate him. His sense of temper tends toward the common, contemptuous, and diseased. All of this makes him unsettling to a big count of people .
In his pre- Scout Regiment criminal life sentence, when he lived in the Underground City, Levi refused to take orders from anyone ( as Petra Rall tells Eren Jaeger ). [ 15 ] however, after he joined the Scout Regiment, he came to greatly respect Commander Erwin Smith, whose orders he follows willingly because he believes in Erwin ‘s vision for the Scouts. He besides places great trust in his subordinates. however, Levi ‘s obedience is rigorously limited to individuals he respects, and he has no problem showing overt condescension for authority from anyone outside of this set. At Eren ‘s court, he insulted the merchants by calling them “ pigs ” and told the Military Police that they were not competent enough to handle Eren. [ 16 ] He evening sarcastically suggests that they join the Scout Regiment, which caused them to back off. He openly resents most of the MPs for their continual attempts to undermine the Scouts, and besides presumably because of the condemnable liveliness he led before he joined the Scouts. Although he rarely shows it, Levi does have a sense of ethical motive and empathy. One of his most specify characteristics is the bang-up value he places on preserving human liveliness : this is particularly shown when it was revealed that all Titans might have once been human themselves. The opinion that he had unwittingly been killing humans all this prison term disturbs him greatly. He himself has stated that he hates unnecessary casualties, and he tells his subordinates to use their judgment so that they can avoid blunders that may cost them their lives .
Because of their hazardous profession and his personal values, he cares greatly for his subordinates ‘ benefit. When ordered to retreat early on to Wall Rose at the end of the black 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, Levi was visibly distressed that so many of his soldiers had died on a bootless deputation. As they re-entered the gate, Petra ‘s don approached him, cheerfully talking about his daughter and her level devotion to Levi. Unbeknownst to him, his daughter had merely been killed ; Levi remained silent, he was excessively get the better of with grief to reply. [ 17 ] Though he bore no malice toward Eren, he was bequeath to resort to violence against him in order to save his life at his court. Afterward, he made a decimal point of asking Eren whether he resented him for the beating. [ 16 ] Levi besides was seen to be visibly affected by the personnel casualty of his entire original special Operations Squad at the hands of the Annie Leonhart. He has besides stated that he carries the will of his fall comrades, and that their collective grudge against the Titans farther strengthens his resoluteness to continue to fight. [ 5 ] Levi risked his life against the Female Titan to retrieve Eren from her mouth and to protect Mikasa, who had gone after her recklessly looking for retribution. He sustained an wound to his stage by doing indeed. [ 17 ] While Levi shows commitment and empathy for his comrades, he shows no mercy towards the Titans, slaughtering them randomly with obvious indifference. When dealing with individuals he perceives to be enemies to mankind, Levi is able of behaving sadistically, even revengefully. For exercise, when the Female Titan was captured, Levi told her he enjoyed watching her digest and described in chilling detail how he intended to mutilate her human body. [ 7 ] Though Levi is aware that his struggle skill is in a different league from that of about any other human soldier alive, he is not particularly arrogant about it, as he knows from experience that no human soldier is invulnerable. Few will argue with his claims that lone he can handle certain difficult tasks because he has proven his ability to accomplish them. Despite his obedience to Erwin, Levi operates rather independently. many of his Titan kills are alone, accomplished with little direct cooperation from other soldiers ( due to him normally assigning them to hunt other Titans in the vicinity ). Although he is looked up to by many and does not hesitate to give orders when necessity, he does not see himself as a drawing card in the means Erwin is. He does not seem to have much practice for hierarchy in general, and he leaves decisions up to his subordinates angstrom much as he can .
Levi was born to Kuchel Ackermann, a prostitute who worked in the Underground and was impregnated by one of her clients. One day, Kenny Ackermann, Kuchel ‘s older brother, came to the city to see her merely to find that she was dead. There, he found a young and flyblown Levi sitting in front of his mother ‘s bed. [ 18 ] In a rare prove of compassion, Kenny decided to take care of him. He raised Levi a well as he could : teaching him knife skills, how to get along with people, and crimson demeanor. Levi besides learned to use his own inside exponent that he possessed as a member of the Ackermann family. [ 18 ] Time passed and finally, Kenny taught Levi everything he knew ; however, he did not consider himself as a good church father figure for his nephew. One day, in the subterranean city, Levi started a competitiveness which he won easily. At that moment, Kenny decided to leave him behind, satisfied that he had taught Levi the skills he needed to survive. [ 18 ] Levi finally became acquainted with Furlan Church. Furlan decided to test Levi ‘s intensity by having him fight a group of thugs. Furlan ‘s plan was to see if Levi was deserving recruiting into his group of thugs or not, and he was storm to see Levi beat them all single-handed. The two became friends and finally started a gang together. [ 2 ] After one of many heists pulled with their crowd, Furlan was placed in charge of dividing the profits from the job among his comrades. Knowing that Yan was suffering from a leg wound and would need extra money to afford music, Furlan gave Yan a larger cut compared to everyone else ‘s. Noticing this, Levi requested to know why Furlan had been giving Yan discriminatory treatment. As Furlan was explaining, he was interrupted by the arrival of a young girl at their hideout ‘s doorsill. Seeing that she was being pursued, they scare off her pursuers and Isabel reveals that she was trying to get a shuttlecock up to the come on. That is why she was trying to sneak up the stairs. Having seen the two of them perform heists using omni-directional mobility gear, she asks if she can become one of them. Levi agrees by saying she must first learn how to clean. [ 2 ] After she is educate and sets the bird free, the trio is approached about a job. Their overture payment is the treatment of their crippled friend Yan, who has already been taken away to a surface clinic. Levi views the musical arrangement as their client taking a hostage, rather than offering payment, and their customer sweetens the deal by saying if they succeed they will receive the right to live on the open. [ 2 ]
As the trio prepares for a armed robbery, Furlan lets Levi know that he has confirmed the identity of the man offering the subcontract and that Yan is safely in a ace clinic. This is the real deal. Levi tells his teammates to act normal and if their targets appear, they start the job. [ 2 ] concisely after the heist begins, the trio is pursued by more than the common Military Police. Levi recognizes the Wings of Freedom and that the newcomers are from the Scout Regiment. The three split up and Levi tries to dodge his pursuers by diving through a construction and exiting through a unlike window. He fights with Miche Zacharius until their battle is interrupted by the arrival of Erwin Smith. The two front off and Erwin tells Levi to stop and look around. Levi sees that Isabel and Furlan have been captured and he reluctantly surrenders. [ 2 ] The trio is shackled at the wrist while Erwin interrogates them about where they obtained their mobility gear and their discipline. He recognizes Levi as the leader and asks if he was always in the military. When Levi does not answer, Miche grabs his forefront and slams his confront into a dirty puddle. Seeing Levi ‘s mistreatment, Furlan insists they were all self-taught. [ 2 ] Erwin then offers Levi a consider. He will not be charged for his crimes if he joins the Scout Regiment. If Levi refuses, they will be handed over to the Military Police, who are unlikely to treat them well. After a moment ‘s consideration, Levi agrees. [ 2 ] Levi and his friends are assigned to Flagon ‘s squad. Their new section commander is not affectionate of them and tells them to keep their barracks clean, implying that because they came from the underground cleanliness would be a foreign concept for them. Levi closely loses his temper, but Furlan intervenes and manages to appease Flagon. He besides reminds Levi that they do not want to cause a scene. The three of them intended to be captured and recruited as contribution of the job for their customer. They are there for two reasons : to retrieve a document in Erwin ‘s possession, and then to kill Erwin Smith. [ 4 ] They undergo training as character of their covering. Though Flagon initially disapproves of the manner Levi chooses to hold one sword facing backward, Levi proves to be highly competent with his unorthodox stylus. however, the three has no fortune finding the document and reason that Erwin would probably keep something that significant on his person at all times. The approaching excursion should be the best time to steal the document and kill Erwin because the Scouts will wholly be focused on the Titans, but Levi tells his friends to stay behind. none of them have always fought Titans before and it will be dangerous. [ 4 ] Furlan and Isabel convert Levi to believe in them though, so he gives in and the three of them depart on the expedition the future day. Before farseeing, Titans appear. Levi kills one of them by himself and worries when another grab Isabel, but she manages to free herself and Furlan kills it. Despite the three being proud of their success, Erwin scolds them for having used besides much flatulence, which irritates Levi, who asks if he is supposed to prioritize his equipment over the lives of his friends. [ 4 ] shortly after, heavy rainfalls begin to limit visibility. Levi realizes this is their best opportunity to kill Erwin and get the text file without being seen. He tells Furlan and Isabel to stay behind so that the constitution does not notice all three of them abandoning their position. The two of them wish him fortune as he rides ahead. Before he gets far, he discovers a big issue of bodies where an abnormal Titan has torn through the Scout Regiment formation. He realizes that he must have ridden right past it and turns back around to find his friends. [ 4 ] Levi arrives besides late and merely finds Isabel ‘s severed capitulum and Furlan ‘s torso. He goes blind with rage and tears apart a titan with improbable amphetamine, even cutting off the heading entirely. As the rain dies down, Erwin finds him crying by the cadaver of the Titan. Erwin calls him unsightly for being the only survivor. Levi lunges at him with the intention of killing him, but Erwin grabs his blade and reveals that he constantly knew of Levi ‘s intentions. He is besides belated. The document is already on its means to Commander-in-Chief Zachary. [ 4 ] This stuns Levi ; he realizes how much he has lost and that the subcontract was over before it began. Before Levi ‘s brain can sink any further, Erwin tells him not to regret his choices, or finally, he will no long be able to make any of his own. Levi decides to stay with the Scouts and as another dispatch starts, he tells himself that he will not regret his choice. [ 4 ] In the year 850, as the Scout Regiment prepares to depart on their 49th Exterior Scouting Mission, Hange tries to convince Levi to help them capture a Titan alert. Before they can finish their lurch, Levi immediately refuses. When Hange breaks off from the regiment to pursue a Titan on their own, Erwin sends Levi ‘s police squad to keep Hange dependable. Oruo Bozad tries to kill the Titan, but Hange intervenes and stops him, causing Oruo to get caught by the Titan. Levi promptly slays the Titan, saving Oruo ‘s life, before confronting Hange, enraged that they endangered his soldiers ‘ lives. He is interrupted by Petra Rall, who points out a soldier ‘s cadaver that has been enshrined in a nearby tree. As they investigate the body, Levi finds a notebook nearby recording the soldier ‘s final experiences. Following the expedition, Levi accompanies Oruo as he goes to apologize to Hange for insulting them during the excursion. As they return to the Scout Regiment ‘s headquarters, Levi informs Hange that the data from the notebook they recovered has convinced Erwin to allow them to start trying to capture Titans alive. [ 3 ] Levi is seen leaving Trost District, along with the stay of the Scout Regiment, on the 56th Exterior Scouting Mission. As the scouts are waiting for the sign to depart, Levi takes the opportunity to insult Hange. [ 1 ] [ 5 ] While on the expedition, Levi sees a scout catch in the chew of a nearby Titan and kills it. As more Titans border on, Levi orders Petra to take manage of the injured lookout while he, Gunther Schultz and Eld Gin take care of the remaining Titans. After clearing the immediate area, Levi checks on the injured scout, who is cursorily succumbing to his injuries. In an undertake to comfort the scout in his die moments, Levi assures him that he has done his duty well. As the scout dies, Erwin arrives and informs Levi that they are returning to Trost. Levi is unwilling to turn back so soon, is forced to concede when Erwin informs him that Wall Rose has possibly been breached. [ 5 ] Levi arrives back in Trost in time to find two Titans bearing down on four soldiers at the base of the Wall. He quickly kills the Titans and demands that the soldiers fill him in on what has happened. Three days former, after Eren awakes in the dungeon beneath the courthouse, Levi assures him that the higher-ups will let him join the Scout Regiment—and that he himself will make certain Eren does not get out of hand. Should that happen, Levi says, he will not hesitate to cut Eren down. [ 6 ] After Eren issues a verbal challenge to the spectators during his trial, Levi violently beats him on the blot, chiefly by kicking him, and jeeringly observes that while chained on his knees, Eren is absolutely placed for Levi ‘s kicks. Armin has to restrain an angered Mikasa from coming to Eren ‘s rescue and killing Levi. She glares at Levi after the trial, and Levi appears changeable by her. The beat was an act of dramaturgy which Mikasa was not mindful of, designed to convince all witnesses that Levi can keep Eren under control condition, while the Military Police Regiment can not. [ 16 ] After the test, Levi hands Eren over to his especial Squad for the future month. They move into the castle that is the old Scout Regiment HQ inside Wall Rose. Levi orders Eren to sleep in the castle keep, so that if he by chance transforms, he will not cause problems. [ 15 ] During the calendar month Eren with Levi ‘s squad, Hange conducts experiments to try to get Eren to transform. If Eren goes out of control in Titan shape, Levi intends to cut him out of the nape in a manner that would sever his human limbs, which would grow back in any case. however, Eren fails to transform, and his hands do not heal from his bites. The Squad decides to postpone any further experiments—until, while having tea with them, Eren leans over to pick up a spoon and by chance generates a fond Titan body. The alarmed Squad threatens him, and Levi has to defuse the situation. Levi tells Eren not to take their actions personally, and that they have thoroughly intentions. Later, after Hange explains why Eren triggered his Titan form, Levi ‘s integral police squad punishes themselves, and apologizes to Eren for acting on assumption. [ 13 ] During the 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, Levi and his team are ordered to ride in the safest area of Erwin ‘s formation. When the formation is abruptly attacked by a horde of Titans coming at their right flank, they change path toward the Forest of Giant Trees, and Levi ‘s police squad takes the cardinal road. Once the Female Titan appears, his police squad begins to beg Levi to give them orders, but he continues to ride forward and look uncoiled ahead. [ 19 ] Eren ill wants to transform and fight the Female Titan, but Petra and her comrades urge him to trust them, and Eren hesitates. Levi tells Eren he is not wrong for wanting to transform—that cipher can know the adjust choice until after they have made it and there are results. Whatever Eren chooses to do, Levi says, he should do it and believe he will not regret it. Eren declares that he trusts in his team ‘s victory, and they keep going through the Forest. This enables the Scout Regiment to capture the Female Titan. [ 13 ] concisely subsequently, Levi separates from his team. He reunites with Erwin and prepares to extract the human in control of the Female Titan from the nape of her neck. He and Miche attack her and try to cut her hands, only to discover her ability to harden her hide. After Erwin orders the cannons to be loaded with explosives and aimed at the Female Titan ‘s wrists, Levi, standing on her head, taunts her with threats of violence, telling her he would like to face her in her human phase over the deaths of countless of his soldiers. In answer, the Female Titan begins to roar. shortly after, Titans come at her from all directions seeking to devour her. On Erwin ‘s order, Levi and the rest of the Scout Regiment elite try to protect her from them, but they fail. Erwin orders the Scouts to retreat back to the Calaneth District. however, Erwin notes that the steam from the Titan bodies will make it unmanageable for the rest of the Scout Regiment to see the sign flares. He then realizes that the human inside the Female Titan may have escaped, and he orders Levi to replenish his gasoline canisters and blades. [ 7 ] After the Female Titan returns and kills Levi ‘s entire police squad, he and Mikasa connect forces to retrieve Eren from her. Levi tells Mikasa to distract the Titan but keep off trying to kill her. Levi then proceeds to attack the Female Titan, and after a serial of successful attacks, he incapacitates her. Seeing that the Female Titan is immediately helpless, Mikasa disobeys Levi ‘s orders and attempts to assassinate her. In saving her from the Female Titan ‘s tempered fist, Levi injures his leave leg. Using the momentum gained from the last attack, he cuts through the Female Titan ‘s facial muscles, causing her to open her mouth and reveal Eren inside. He grabs Eren and flees with him and Mikasa, whom he scolds for having risked the life of her “ particular friend ” for the sake of vengeance. [ 17 ] During the Scout Regiment ‘s retrograde to Calaneth, the remainder of the Scouts are attacked by respective Titans after one of the soldiers went to retrieve back the body of his fallen companion. As the Titans close in on one of the carts, Levi, who can not fight because of his injury, orders that the dead be rolled out of the cart to lighten the load so that they can outrun the Titans. One of the corpses is that of Petra ; her shroud blows off, and her body is trampled. however, the drop of the dead enables the populate to outrun the quest for Titans. [ 17 ] As they enter the Calaneth gate after retreating, the Scout Regiment receives a hostile response from the public for their fail mission. Levi is approached by Petra ‘s father, who reveals that she wrote to him frequently. He tells Levi that, as a don, he is worried about Petra ‘s decision to dedicate her life to him, as she is still quite young and has her wholly life ahead of her. Levi continues to walk mutely ahead without responding. [ 17 ] A few days late, Eren is summoned to the capital for a test to decide his fortune. Beforehand, Levi, Erwin, Eren, and the other survivors reunite in the old Scout Regiment HQ. Armin tells them his theory about the Female Titan ‘s true identity. [ 20 ] Levi himself, still injured, does not participate in the subsequent operation in the Stohess District. however, in the concluding moments of Eren and Annie ‘s battle, Levi, despite his injury, rescues Eren from his Titan form before Annie ‘s crystal of her own Titan can trap him. [ 21 ] When Titans are spotted in Wall Rose, Levi accompanies Hange and the majority of the Scout Regiment as they head towards Ehrmich District. Pastor Nick of the Order of the Walls involuntarily joins them and Levi keeps an eye on him, with a pistol ready. Although Nick does not disclose any valuable data, he does tell them of person who knows about the privy of the Walls and is allowed to reveal it to the populace if she sol wishes. [ 22 ] Levi arrives in Trost District with the Scout Regiment, though his wound from fighting the Female Titan forces him to remain a bystander. Circumstances have forced the Military Police out of the inner to help fight the Titans and a few of them express disappointment to not have seen any Titans nearby. Levi calls their bluff by inviting them to join the Scout Regiment any day so they can go outside of the Walls to fight them. The military Police bet on down. [ 23 ] Following Eren ‘s rescue, Levi joins Dot Pyxis by Erwin ‘s bedside, where the Commander is recovering after the personnel casualty of his arm. Hange and Conny report their findings on the theory of Ragako Village and she says their findings support the theory that Titans were, at some point, humans. Levi ‘s formulation sour at the thought that he could have been flying around killing people all this time. Hange offers him some comfort, saying that there is no solid proof for this. [ 24 ] Levi watches Hange and Conny leave, then turns to find Erwin smiling queerly. He asks Erwin what the hell is he smiling for, to which Erwin replies that they are one pace closer to the truth. Skeptical, Levi tells him that they will run out of men before they can uncover it. [ 24 ] sometime late, Levi selects a phone number of Scout Regiment recruits to join Squad Levi, assigning them to protect Eren and Historia in an isolate cabin forest. Levi finally joins his team at the cabin, checking the bottom of a table for scatter. Finding it dirty, he expresses his dissatisfaction with their cleanse but postpones that discussion for late. rather, he takes the squad out to work on Hange ‘s experiment regarding Eren ‘s powers. [ 25 ] After the experiment goes ill, Levi comments that the plan to use Eren ‘s Titan abilities to seal the hole in Shiganshina District is a good one, but they are still a long way from achieving it. That evening in Trost District, as Erwin reads the reputation Levi has brought regarding Hange ‘s fail experiment, Levi tells him the problem is that they lack information about the harden ability. He wonders if they could get the information they need through Historia. [ 25 ] After Hange returns with the report card about the death of Pastor Nick, Levi was present as Hange described the scene they saw. From the fact that all his fingernails had been torn out, Levi is able to conclude that Nick had not talked before being killed, which means the military Police does not know the Scouts are looking into the Reiss family. [ 25 ] Afterward, Nifa arrives with a message from Erwin. On reading it, Levi orders everyone to move out, and to leave no hound that they were here. By sunset, the cabin is swarmed by Military Police, but Levi and Hange ‘s squads are already outside in the woods. Levi reveals that the government has frozen all Scout action outside of the Wall and demanded that Eren and Historia be handed over. [ 25 ] Levi decides to take everyone to Trost District because it would be safer than the home and they can use omni-directional mobility gear in the city. Hange decides that they and Moblit will go after Erwin, but they leave Abel, Keiji, and Nifa behind to assist Levi. After Armin and Jean, disguised as Eren and Historia, are kidnapped, Levi and his squad track them to an abandoned warehouse. As one of them molests Armin, Mikasa warns Levi that their disguises are not going to last. Noting that the kidnappers appear to be amateur, he leaves the position in his squad ‘s hands while he goes to Eren. [ 25 ]
elsewhere, Levi joins Nifa on a rooftop where they have a beneficial view of Keiji ‘s travel through the city with Eren and Historia. however, tied though the body double decoy was a success, Levi realizes that using such amateurs does not feel like a military Police operation. He asks Nifa if she has heard of Kenny the Ripper and assures her that the fabled aggregate murderer is a real person. Levi grew up with him, and this mathematical process feels like something Kenny would do. [ 25 ]
He realizes excessively late, that in Kenny ‘s position, he would have two groups tailing the police van from the rear, from a high place with a view, just like where they are now. Levi tries to warn Nifa, but is besides late as Kenny blows off part of her head using ODM gear modified to carry a shotgun alternatively of a blade. More soldiers appear, of a unit that has not been seen before, and one of them kills Abel. Kenny taunts Levi as he stalks up the rooftop and reloads his guns, and Levi screams as he draws his blades to retaliate. [ 25 ]
Levi makes a break for it, frustrated that Kenny can read all of his moves and shocked that Kenny of all people has become an MP. Members of the Military Police Regiment ambush Levi as he takes cover in a bar to avoid being shoot. Kenny follows him inside. The two of them exchange barbs about their past and while Kenny talks, Levi takes the opportunity to load the bartender ‘s rifle and reposition an alcohol bottle, allowing him to see Kenny in its reflection. Levi then shoots Kenny by aiming with the bottle ‘s observation. The inject hits the chair Kenny is holding but is still strong enough to throw him second outside and Levi takes the opportunity to escape. He tosses a chair through a window to distract the police squad members outside before emerging himself, killing several of his pursuers during his escape. [ 26 ] Levi begins pursuing the wagon carrying Eren and Historia, running into his police squad along the direction. He orders them to chase the beach wagon and kill their opponents, given the gamble. They manage to retake the big dipper, but Jean is ineffective to do sol and finds himself on the amiss side of a gun. Armin manages to shoot the soldier in time, saving Jean, but Levi and Sasha are forced to pull both of them out of the wagon to keep them from being killed, resulting in the loss of Eren and Historia .
Returning to the warehouse, Armin is profoundly bothered to have killed person, and Levi attempts to comfort him by explaining to him that he was able to pull the trigger because he knew that if he did not, then Jean would have died. Levi then confronts the kidnappers ‘ ringleader, Dimo Reeves. Learning that Reeves was coerced into aiding Kenny, Levi proposes that the Reeves Company take up with the Scout Regiment in exchange for protection and aid in rebuilding Trost, to which Reeves reluctantly agrees .
Reeves lures two military Policemen into an ambush by Levi and his police squad, allowing them to take the men captive. not bothering to ask him any questions, Levi immediately begins torturing Sannes until Hange and Moblit arrive to help. Hange and Levi agony Sannes, but he refuses to divulge any data to them. After more torture only results in Sannes begging that they kill him, Hange and Levi leave and violence Ralph, at knife-point, to read a script outside Sannes ‘ door, making him believe he has been betrayed and is considered a lunatic by his comrades. This causes the world to break, revealing to Hange the mysterious of the Reiss family—the truthful rulers of world. [ 26 ] Following Sannes ‘ confession, Levi and Hange reveal the information they gleaned from Sannes, deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as her theory that Rod Reiss is planning to eat Eren. Mikasa is identical disturb at the candidate and attempts to leave to find Eren, and Levi is forced to talk her down, and convince her that they need a plan of action to rescue him. After the Scout Regiment is accused of trying to monopolize Eren ‘s Titan powers, the government begins arresting all members of the arrangement. Levi and the rest of Squad Levi avoid being captured and camp out in the woods outside of Stohess while discussing a design to rescue Eren and Historia. Sasha warns them of approaching MPs, [ 27 ] and Levi and his police squad capture them .
They take their uniforms with the purpose of infiltrating the military Police to find out where Eren and Historia have been taken. Before he can announce their fates one of the soldiers, Hitch Dreyse challenges him over the civilian deaths in Stohess District and berates for causing Annie Leonhart ‘s death during the conflict. Levi informs them that Annie was the Titan obscure in Stohess, and is presently being held for the destruction she caused. The other soldier, Marlo Freudenberg, asks if the Scout Regiment truly killed the people from the Reeves Company and Levi replies that it was the Interior Military Police, which causes Marlo to offer helping him to set things correct. Levi is doubting, but Jean steps in and asks if he can handle the two, which Levi allows. denim tests their quality to see where their hearts rightfully lie and when it is net they have no intention of killing him or following their master orders, he convinces Levi to trust them. Marlo and Hitch direct Levi ‘s police squad to a nearby MP checkpoint that they should be able to overtake. As they are preparing to attack, Levi sends the two back to their own squad so that their superiors will not get fishy .
The infiltration goes successfully, with the Interior MPs being disabled rather than killed, and Levi takes one of them, hostage, to interrogate about Eren and Historia ‘s location. The MP refuses to talk, alternatively spouting off about how the Scout Regiment will be lucky to survive and how Erwin and the other capture soldiers will be executed. Undeterred, Levi savagely twists and breaks the MP ‘s arm for not answering his question. Explaining that those who join the Scouts all understand that some lives are more authoritative than others, he again asks where Eren and Historia are being held. The MP is panicked and confesses that he does not know where they are. Kenny Ackermann is highly tight-lipped about it. Both Levi and Mikasa are surprised to hear the last name, but they are interrupted by people approaching on animal foot before they can question the MP further. [ 28 ] however, the newcomers turn out to be Hange and Moblit, who have come with raw that the military ‘s coup d’etat has been successful. As his team celebrates, Levi apologizes to Hange that he lost the three people they loaned him. He points out that they still do not have any leads on Eren and Historia, but Hange reveals information that Erwin gathered on the Reiss family, saying that it may be of use. Rod ‘s entire kin was slaughtered by bandits on the day of Wall Maria ‘s drop, equitable a few days before he went to try to retrieve Historia, leading Levi to conclude that there is something special about their lineage. Hange reveals that the underground chapel service they were in at the time was destroyed and that Rod rebuilt it with his own money. Theorizing that the chapel is crucial to him, the team elects to investigate it future. [ 29 ] En route to the chapel service, Levi warns his team that Kenny will be their biggest obstacle because fighting him will be like fighting Levi himself. Levi asks Mikasa if she thinks Kenny might be related to her since they partake the lapp final identify, Ackermann, but she does not immediately answer. She only knows that her don ‘s syndicate was persecuted, and not the reason why. Levi then asks her whether she experienced a consequence when she felt a sudden exponent wake up inside her. Upon confirming this, Levi tells Mikasa that he and Kenny besides experienced such moments in their lives. [ 30 ] They arrive at the chapel service and find the mysterious door leading belowground. Levi and the others make preparations for facing the Anti-Personnel Control Squad, which is waiting for them below. The group sends barrels of gunpowder and bags of petroleum down the stairs, setting fire to them and filling the belowground chamber with smoke, reducing visibility and the utility of firearms. Most of the squad exacerbates the trouble with signal flares while Levi and Mikasa scout out their enemies. Levi calls for his police squad to take them down and the team springs into carry through. During the struggle, Levi tries to kill the squad ‘s ringleader but is ambushed by Kenny. Levi takes embrace from Kenny ‘s gunfire and, immediately anticipating that Kenny will flank him, successfully counters the older man ‘s future attack. Kenny proceeds to fire upon nearby platforms set up throughout the cavern, causing debris to rain down on Levi, leaving him perturb .
Levi successfully parries Kenny ‘s future knife fire, and tries to retreat out of scope, but is immediately fired upon. Levi is prepare and tosses a pouch of gasoline into the air, which is ignited by Kenny ‘s blasts. The resulting explosion allows Levi to land a successful blow, cutting Kenny across the middle and forcing him to retreat. Before Levi can pursue, he is distracted by the sight of Hange being badly wounded by one of Kenny ‘s police squad members. [ 31 ] The police squad finds their way blocked by a barricade created by Kenny ‘s team, but before they can find a way to circumnavigate it, they see light from a Titan transformation deep into the cavern. The resulting quakes shake loosen the barricade, and Levi leaves Armin and Moblit to take wish of Hange as the rest of the squad proceeds .
The squad finds Rod Reiss transforming into a Titan and Historia trying to free Eren from his chains. When she is blown back, Levi, Conny, and Jean take the keys to help free him. Making matters worse, the roof begins to collapse from the size of Rod ‘s Titan and the team is trapped against the wall of the chamber. Eren is hesitant to act until Levi pushes him to make a choice, good like he did back when they were facing the Female Titan. The memory is enough to get Eren on his feet. He grabs the “ Armor ” bottle that had fallen out of Rod ‘s bag and breaks it between his tooth as he transforms. Eren ‘s Titan form then crystallizes, stabilizing the cavern around the police squad, preventing them from being crushed. Levi and his police squad exit the cavern through a hole made in the ceiling above and see the trail of end left in the wake of Rod Reiss ‘ Titan. Armin believes it is an abnormal since it is ignoring them and Levi tells everyone that they are going after it. Eren entertains the possibility of getting eaten by Rod since that would turn him back into a homo who would then have the powers of the Founding Titan, but Levi disabuses him of the impression. even if they turn Rod Reiss back into a human, they would still have to undo the First King ‘s brainwash in order to get him to help them .
Erwin meets up with them and Levi briefs him on the site. The Scout Regiment regroups in Orvud District in preparation to fight Rod. Before attending the meeting to discuss a scheme to defeat Rod ‘s Titan, Levi briefs Historia on Erwin ‘s plan to make her the adjacent ruler of the Walls, and Historia accepts on the condition that she be allowed to take separate in the operation to kill Rod. [ 32 ] As Rod reaches the wall, Levi watches the Garrison ‘s cannon attacks against Rod, noting how ineffective they are. When the Titan reaches the Wall, Levi and his team move ahead with Erwin ‘s plan to cripple Rod ‘s hands with explosives and have Eren shove barrels of gunpowder inside Rod ‘s mouth, causing him to explode. The plan is a achiever and they begin cutting down the flying pieces of pulp to find Rod Reiss ‘ true torso and Historia is the one who kills him .
sometime after the fight, Levi and a hyponym return key to the locate of Rod ‘s transformation and find Kenny sitting under a tree nearby. Kenny is heavily wounded and Levi sends the other soldier aside, saying he will be fine on his own. Levi comments that Kenny will likely succumb to his wounds soon, but is blindsided when Kenny smugly reveals he is in possession of a Titan injection. [ 33 ] Seeing through Kenny ‘s bluff, Levi points out that if Kenny was inclined to use it, he would have done sol already .
Levi asks him about the First King and why he does not want world to survive, but Kenny alone knows that it was for that reason that the Ackermanns opposed him. When Levi, immediately knowing that his concluding appoint is Ackermann, asks Kenny what precisely was he to his mother, Kenny laughs and reveals that he was her older brother, thereby making him Levi ‘s uncle. Shocked, Levi questioned him on why he abandoned him and is told that the reason he left Levi was because he believed he was not match to be a parent. He gives Levi the serum just ahead dying as Levi looked at his late uncle with a grave formulation .
After Historia ‘s coronation, Levi is confronted by the new queen, who punches him and dares him to retaliate nowadays that she is king. however, alternatively of getting angry he smiles and thanks her and the stay of his team. [ 18 ] Two months late, Levi backs up Historia on providing a family for the poor people and orphans, considering that he was from the Underground City equally well. He is deliver at Trost when Hange Zoë is testing out the Titan guillotine and attends the military meet where Erwin Smith goes over a new expedition to Shiganshina. The following morning, Levi and his squad visit Commandant Keith Sadies to find out what he knows about Eren ‘s father Grisha. [ 34 ] In a individual follow-up between the heads of the military, Erwin decides to entrust Levi with the Titan injection since he has the highest luck of surviving. It will be Levi ‘s call if and when to use it .
During a confluence with other members of the Scout Regiment, Levi sits mutely and listens to Hange tell Erwin what Keith explained to them on their inflict. After the meet is finished, Levi waits until all the other members have left and then shuts the doorway, intent on having a private conversation with Erwin. He tries to persuade Erwin to sit out on the approaching mission to retake Wall Maria and to leave it to the others, telling him that in his de-escalate state of matter, Erwin will just be Titan food and that he is not willing to carry along any excess baggage. Erwin, however, explains to Levi that the chain of command must be preserved and that he has an acute desire to see what is in Grisha ‘s basement, which prompts Levi to threaten to break both of his legs. however, this does not deter Erwin and Levi realizes that he will unfortunately not be able to change Erwin ‘s mind, even though he fears his death as a hurt soldier. late that night at a particular ‘red meat ‘ dinner, Levi breaks up a fight between Eren and Jean by kicking and throwing them both into meekness. He then orders that they and the remainder of the Corps to go spinal column to their quarters and go to bed. curtly after, Eren, Armin, and Mikasa talk about their return family and Levi listens to them while in the barn. As he hears Armin ‘s ambitions, his construction is lowered and darkened. The following day, just ahead sunset, Levi along with the other Scout Regiment leaders salute the superior of the administration. Levi watches on as the citizens of the Trost District cheer for the scouts and call out his list. He acts modest and calls them selfish before seeing Erwin cheer back at the enthusiastic civilians. justly after, the 58th excursion begins, Levi rides out with the scouts alongside Hange. [ 35 ] Near dawn, the Scout Regiment walks on foot through a afforest on a batch, leading their horses. Levi questions Dirk, asking if they are however not at the bottom of the mountain, worrying that it is about dawn. finally, they reach Shiganshina District and ride in on their horses. Erwin orders the soldiers to be leery of hide Titans and then orders them to switch to ODM gearing and begin the deputation. The soldiers leave their horses and rush toward the gate to Shiganshina. As Eren arrives atop the inner Wall, he stares at the ruins of his home town, prompting Levi order him to continue on. Hange and Levi wonder why there are no Titans in the area and Levi claims that they have fallen right into the enemy ‘s hands. however, the two agree that they must go forward with the plan anyhow as Eren flies up above the gate and prepares to transform. Once Eren had successfully sealed the hole in the Wall, Levi reminds him that they have to kill all of their enemies, including Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover before their mission will rightfully be finished .
When Reiner is discovered by one of the Scout Regiment members and attempts to attack Armin, Levi attacks Reiner, shoving his blade through the nape of his neck and stabbing him, before kicking him to the grind. After seeing that Reiner survived the beastly attack, Levi angrily laments that he was not able to kill Reiner. While on the prime, Reiner transforms into his Titan form. [ 36 ] Levi makes his way back to Erwin ‘s side, where the latter begins issuing commands. He tasks Levi with helping to protect the horses, believing that Levi is the merely soldier he can trust to take out the Beast Titan. He arrives first, out of the two squads sent, and immediately kills two Titans, ordering the soldiers under his control that they can not die. [ 37 ] As Levi is protecting the recruits and the Scouts ‘ horses, Dirk arrives to inform him that the Titans in the area have about been wholly eradicated. At Dirk ‘s recommend, Levi agrees to rest for a moment, using the clock time to ponder whether things are going well on the other side of the wall. As he is contemplating, Levi and his soldiers are bombarded by a barrage of stones and boulders from the Beast Titan. Horrified, Levi tries to reach the early soldiers and help them, but is forced to take cover after another barrage of rocks is thrown. He retreats to the Wall, where he meets up with Erwin. Levi asks about Eren and Squad Hange ‘s wellbeing, and Erwin informs the soldiers of their increasingly desperate situation. As the young recruits fall into a panic, Levi asks Erwin if he has some kind of plan .
Regarding the site, Levi gives Erwin the advice to save as many lives as possible by “ loading them on Eren ” to make an escape. Levi continues by saying that he will fight the Beast Titan. Although Levi knows that there is short chance of a victory, he deduces that there is silent hope for the Scout Regiment if Erwin and Eren survive. But for Levi to take down the Beast Titan, Erwin must sacrifice himself and his men. At this point, Erwin is melancholic, but Levi makes the decision and swears that he will take down the Beast Titan after telling his commander that he must die for them. In an try to get closer to the Beast Titan, Levi uses the production line of Titans around him to his advantage while in an open space. To his side, he notices Erwin ‘s men following closely behind, fear-stricken as they ride toward their death. [ 8 ] After Erwin and most of the Scouts fall, Levi takes out the surrounding Titans and engages Zeke. Zeke attempts to crush Levi, who merely dodges, slicing up the Titan ‘s sleeve to pieces in the work. Levi then proceeds to slash the Beast Titan ‘s eyes, blinding it, then cuts up its ankles which causes it to topple over. Slicing open the nape, Levi thrusts his blade into Zeke ‘s mouth, commenting that his torso is heavily damaged after transforming into a Titan so Zeke can not transform again while he is busy healing it. Further thrusting his blade correct through Zeke ‘s cheek and above his correct eye, Levi decides he can not kill him yet, pondering over whether there are anyone still alive who he would use the Titan injection on and have them eat Zeke to steal his Titan office. however, Levi is interrupted and shocked when the Cart Titan snatches Zeke and carries him away in its mouth. Zeke then orders the remaining Titans to kill Levi, but Levi, remembering his promise to Erwin, finds his decide and begins to take on the Titans and chase down Zeke. [ 38 ] Levi pursues Zeke and the Cart Titan back to Shiganshina District, where he is stopped by his miss of supplies. He orders Eren to give him all his gas and blades sol that he can continue the pursuit, but Eren panics and demands that Levi give Armin, who has been mortally wounded, the Titan injection he is carrying. Levi hesitates, but agrees. precisely as he is about to hand Eren the serum, a recruit crawls up onto the roof with Erwin, who is on the brink of end. Levi decides that he will give it to Erwin rather of Armin, which enrages Eren. Appalled at Eren and Mikasa, Levi reminds them of how authoritative Erwin ‘s survival is, and orders them not to let their feelings bias their decision. When Eren refuses to step down, Levi forcefully punches his face and knocks him aside, before being pinned down by an angered Mikasa. Eren and Mikasa try to convince Levi of Armin ‘s value, while Floch argues that Levi is discipline to save Erwin, and a fight between them is merely narrowly avoided by the arrival of Hange, who pulls Mikasa off of Levi. Levi prepares to inject Erwin, but is given hesitate by Eren, who tries to sway Levi by telling him of Armin ‘s dream to see the sea. matthew orders his comrades to leave him alone while he injects Erwin .
As Levi prepares to inject Erwin, he recalls Armin ‘s conversation with Eren and Mikasa about the sea, and Erwin ‘s dream to see the secrets locked in Eren ‘s basement. As he begins injecting Erwin, Levi recalls Kenny ‘s concluding words about people becoming slaves to their own desires, and is surprised when Erwin lashes out in his sleep, knocking aside the syringe. As he watches Erwin, Levi recalls his rate to Erwin to give up on his dreams and die with the rest of the Scout recruits, and the spirit of relief on Erwin ‘s face at the order. After injecting Armin, Levi watches as Armin ‘s Pure Titan mannequin devour Bertholdt and explains to a broken Floch that, after all he has given, it is time for Erwin to finally rest. Levi attempts to apologize to Erwin for failing to kill the Beast Titan, but Hange informs him that Erwin has already died. [ 9 ] On top of the Wall, Levi notices that Armin has awoken and fires a sign flare for the soldiers to regroup. He orders Eren to tell Armin about the events that occurred in the past few hours. Armin shows compunction for the measures his comrades have taken for him, but Levi advocates that he should not be regretful. Afterward, Levi follows Eren, Mikasa, and Hange to the Jaeger syndicate ‘s basement. When the group find that Eren ‘s keystone can not open the lock door, Levi proceeds to kick the door open. They inspect the basement thoroughly and Mikasa finds a draftsman which needs Eren ‘s key to unlock. Initially evacuate, Levi discovers a faithlessly bottom and under it are three hidden books kept entire with assorted preservatives. They open the first base reserve and within it they find an uncannily realistic portrayal of Grisha standing beside a blue-eyed woman and a child. On the back of it, Grisha had written that it is not an illustration ; it is called a photograph and world has not perished. [ 39 ] While serving their punishment in imprison cells, Mikasa and Eren discuss the journals and Grisha ’ randomness memories until Hange, Levi, and Armin interrupt Eren and provoke them about what they were talking about until Levi accuses him of going through a phase as a adolescent and lets them go, claiming that their sentence is being cut short because of their low numbers and their superiors failure to catch the Armored and Beast Titans. The group, now with Jean, meet Historia subsequently to speak with her after she finishes reading a letter left to her by Ymir. After the suffer, everyone, including all other military commanders and officials, meet to discuss the recent expedition, the journals, and the huge personnel casualty of life. [ 40 ] once the information obtained from Eren ‘s basement is released to the earth, Hange and Levi meet with Roy and Peaure to discuss the revelations and how the populace are handling it .
The royal government plans for the Scouts to be awarded with medals in a ceremony for their courage and success. Overhearing a fight breaking out among the younger recruits, Levi cuts in to stop them and tell them to prepare for the begin of the ceremony. A military audience gathers in a big room where Historia presents each of the nine soldiers with a decoration of award in the human body of a black bolo tie tie with the wings of freedom on it .
One year after the Battle of Shiganshina District, Levi and other members of the Scouts make contact with the Anti-Marleyan Volunteers, Yelena and Onyankopon, who rebel against the rest of the Marleyan gang on their transport. The two defectors show Levi and Hange their engineering, and Levi is concerned by how greatly Hange is impressed with Marley ‘s level of advancement. He asks if the defectors would notify Marley that they have eliminated all the Titans on the island, but Yelena says they would not. They are here under orders from Zeke to free the Eldian people. Levi attends the military suffer to decide whether to cooperate with Zeke and the Anti-Marleyan Volunteers. Though he does not voice an opinion, he asks Eren why he withheld the information that he could control the Founding Titan ‘s might if he is in contact with a royal-blooded Titan. not wanting to disrupt the meeting, Levi tells Eren they will discuss this later. Once the Scouts agrees to work with Yelena and Onyankopon, Levi assists them in capturing the soldiers sent on future Marleyan expeditions. [ 41 ] Another year passes and Hange takes the Scouts to meet with an ambassador from the nation of Hizuru named Kiyomi Azumabito. While waiting for Kiyomi to arrive, Yelena attempts to interact with Eren and Levi separates them, insisting that Yelena not be allowed near him. In 853, Levi and Hange receive discussion from Hizuru saying that they will be ineffective to help Eldia trade with the external global and relay the newsworthiness to Levi ‘s squad. [ 42 ] Levi participates in the infiltration into Marley and the ensuing Raid on Liberio. After the Jaw Titan ambushes Eren, Levi cuts its yack open, preventing it from biting Eren ‘s nape. Levi and the other Scouts prepare to finish it off, [ 43 ] but the Cart Titan ‘s Panzer Unit attacks them and drives them back. Noticing the sudden arrival of Zeke Jaeger ‘s Beast Titan, Levi orders the surviving soldiers to regroup. Levi is on standby as the Beast Titan sends debris flying into the surrounding area. He observes as the Titan calls for him to come out, and late ambushes it by quickly slicing its nape, knocking it down. matthew proceeds to drop a bombard into the Titan ‘s nape and detonate it. [ 44 ] Using the plosion for cover, Levi cuts Zeke out of his Titan and discreetly transports the man back to the Scouts ‘ airship. As the Scouts retreat Levi waits for Eren to board the airship before then kicking him into the wall and placing him under check. He takes Eren to a back room where Zeke and his attendant Yelena are. He trades insults with Zeke before being interrupted by Jean, who brings two stowaways to him. He listens to Hange and mutely agrees when Hange states that Eren made the integral Paradis Island a target ascribable to his actions in Marley. [ 45 ] once they return to the island, Levi rides into the city in a baby buggy with Zeke. He mock threatens to kill Zeke, send his cadaver back to Marley, and then reveal everything about his plot, which would spell the end for his grandparents. however, Levi admits american samoa farseeing as Zeke ‘s “ clandestine design ” is substantial, he is bequeath to wait a fiddling longer before slicing him to pieces. Levi escorts Zeke to a Forest of Giant Trees. Zeke asks Levi if he can show the trees to Gabi and Falco, but Levi responds that it depends on his own actions. [ 41 ] Zeke late tells Levi about the method acting he had used to turn the people of Ragako into Titans. After the explanation finishes, Levi admonishes Zeke for his miss of guilt, and tells him that he distinctly has no business for human life. He is shaken off and told not to assume how he felt. Zeke changes the submit by asking when he will be allowed to carry out his experiment with Eren. Levi tells him that this is not his call, but both agree that it would be a error to wait around besides long. After a Scout messenger arrives at the camp, Varis notifies Levi that Dhalis Zachary has been assassinated and besides informs him of Commander Pyxis ‘s design to deal with the Jaegerists. Dismayed to hear that his friends and comrades have basically died for nothing to protect Eren, Levi tells them they are altering the plan. He suggests they capture one of the Jaegerists and force them to eat Zeke ; then when Historia gives birth several months from now and is ready to inherit, they will feed the Jaegerist to her. matthew orders Varis to go inform Pyxis and descends from the tree. Despite the holes in this plan, Levi admits to himself that he does not care about Pyxis ‘s reply. [ 46 ] After trading a few shot with Zeke, Levi gets lost in his thoughts. He considers how he will soon fulfill the vow he made to Erwin during the Battle of Shiganshina and give intend to his dead person comrades. Turning around, he notices Zeke running into the forest ; before Levi can react, however, Zeke lets out a acute scream. He looks on in repugnance as the numerous Scouts above him begin to fall out of the trees and transform into Titans. Levi is caught off guard but comes to his senses in time to avoid one of the Titans charging him. Remembering how his subordinates insisted they enjoy the wine offered and Zeke ‘s comment on it from earlier, Levi theorizes that the wine was indeed the likely cause of the soldiers transforming. Noticing these Titans are faster and more irregular, he reflects on if his subordinates are silent inside and conscious of their actions. As the Titans swarm around him in midair, Levi closes his eyes .
Levi slaughters his former subordinates and collects several Thunder Spears before chasing down Zeke. Catching up with him, Levi kills one of Zeke ‘s three Titan escorts and meets Zeke ‘s gaze with a homicidal look. Levi quickly dispatches another of the Titans before Zeke transforms into the Beast Titan. As Zeke butchers the concluding Titan and throws the bally pieces at him, Levi dodges Zeke ‘s attack while chopping up large tree branches to hide himself in mid-air. He criticizes Zeke for not anticipating that he would be capable of killing his companion soldiers. Falling towards Zeke, Levi fires and hits Zeke ‘s nape with four Thunder Spears before promptly detonating them. Cutting Zeke ‘s mangled and burned body from his Titan form, Levi insults him before dragging him out of the forest. When the tied up Zeke awakens inside a horse-drawn handcart, Levi instructs him to not move, revealing that he has placed the lean of a Thunder Spear inside his abdomen and attached the fuse around his neck. Levi chastises Zeke for killing his men, before starting to cut off chunks of his legs. Hearing Zeke shout, Levi shouts at him to shut up, explaining that this has to be done to prevent him from becoming a Titan. Zeke weakly asks where his glasses are but Levi brushes it aside, stating he would no long be needing them .
While Levi steers the cart, Zeke begins muttering about his plan to euthanize Eldia in rate to ensure the world ‘s safety. Hearing this, Levi begins mocking him, saying that his impending end at the hands of a Titan is besides merciful when considering the lives he has taken. Zeke decrepit protests that he was saving their children from animation in a barbarous universe, prompting Levi to angrily prepare to cut off his branch again. abruptly, Zeke jerks his head back and pulls the pin on the Thunder Spear lodged in his stomach ; a shock Levi is unable to react in time and is caught in the leave explosion. [ 10 ] Levi ‘s mangled consistency is found concisely afterwards by Hange and a group of Jaegerists. When a soldier suggests shooting Levi, Hange claims that he is already dead. Floch tries to check Levi for a pulsation but is distracted by the sight of Zeke emerging from a nearby Titan, allowing Hange to grab Levi ‘s cadaver and dive into a nearby river to escape. [ 47 ] Levi is finally awakened from his coma by a message sent by Eren to all Subjects of Ymir announcing his intentions to destroy the worldly concern outside of Paradis. The two answer to find a means to stop Eren, and Hange creates a improvised transport for Levi to be moved in. [ 14 ] As Hange is transporting Levi, they cross paths with the Cart Titan and a Marleyan cosmopolitan. Hange approaches the two, insisting that they are harmless. [ 48 ] Levi negotiates with the soldiers, pointing out that they have a coarse goal in killing Zeke. reluctantly, the soldiers agree to work together. [ 14 ]
Levi is excellent at using the omni-directional mobility gear, to a point that everyone says he is the best at it. He is besides said to be adenine valuable as an entire brigade, far outweighing all of the other soldiers. [ 5 ] Furthermore, he was considered highly solid even before joining the Scout Regiment. He has shown the capability of incapacitating the Female Titan by moving excessively fast for her to defend, something which whole squads and even Eren in his Titan form could not accomplish. [ 17 ] He besides defeated Zeke Jaeger in his Beast Titan form despite a lack of trees and buildings to anchor his omni-directional mobility gear. [ 38 ]
aside from his extraordinary battle skill, Levi has shown a profound ability to cursorily analyze situations, and make forecast decisions in the heat of battle. This has given him the ability to save himself and his comrades on many occasions such as when he realizes the Female Titan can not be killed easily because of her hide crystal and regenerative abilities, and subsequently saves Mikasa when she tries to slay the Female Titan herself. [ 17 ] however, Levi admits that he does not believe a person can be right all the clock, and some scenarios are beyond a person ‘s control .
Levi has formidable physical force, which is no doubt discernible by his domination of the omni-directional mobility gear. Despite his small stature, his body is well built with big muscle, making him very strong, and easily able to defeat his opponents. At one point, Levi intercepts one of the Female Titan ‘s attacks, by using her hand to launch himself towards her mouth before she could hit Mikasa. [ 17 ] This does not stop him from injuring himself though. even after being exhausted from fighting multiple Titans, a individual punch to Eren ‘s leave cheek is hard adequate to break all of Eren ‘s dentition on the left side of his face. [ 9 ]
When Levi first joined the Scout Regiment, he wielded one of his two swords in a rearward bag which his segment air force officer noted was “ ill-timed. ” however, this method acting has greatly helped in his ability to slay Titans. This method involves holding his right sword backhanded with the blade facing out and being behind him rather of in front of him. By doing this, the blades cut in a “ circle ” around him, and give him the ability to utilize spin and other rotating attacks, allowing him to maintain incredible rush and agility while fighting. At the lapp fourth dimension, this helps him keep his energy up without wasting stamina and military capability needlessly, enabling him to fight for longer periods of time and take multiple targets out simultaneously. [ 38 ] This reverse-grip technique may have been inspired by Kenny Ackermann ‘s lessons on knife-wielding, in which Levi learned at a young senesce how to hold a blade in a reverse grip. [ 18 ]
- Eren Jaeger – As humanity’s strongest soldier, Levi commands great respect from Eren. Upon encountering Eren personally, Levi treated him like an animal, wary of his Titan ability, though he was impressed by Eren’s passion. Upon getting to know him, Levi began treating Eren as he does most others: dismissively and coldly. However, Levi also becomes a mentor of sorts to Eren, understanding the potential good the young recruit is capable of and offering advice during Eren’s moments of doubt. He later becomes more patient with Eren, forgiving his mistakes, and nurturing his growth as a soldier, and as a vanguard for humanity’s hope.Eren’s assault on Liberio, and the formation of the Jaegerists leaves Levi dismayed at how Eren has turned out.
- Erwin Smith – Levi and Erwin’s relationship was not initially an amicable one. After being captured and blackmailed by Erwin into joining the Scout Regiment, Levi at first wanted to kill him, but he later chose to set aside his revenge. Erwin eventually became one of the few people Levi places full trust in, obeying his every command and judgment. However, this did not stop Levi from speaking in his usual rude manner around him. Erwin was also one of the few people that could maintain a casual conversation with Levi, able to exchange brief banter with one another on equal grounds. Levi was very angered after Erwin was killed by Zeke, holding onto his promise to Erwin that he would kill the Beast Titan.
- Hange Zoë – Levi and Hange did not interact with one another when he first joined the Scout Regiment, although he amazed them with his skills. Later on, Levi and Hange are on good terms, though Levi is annoyed by Hange’s obsession with capturing Titans, and dislikes their recklessness. Levi has gradually become more familiar with Hange, able to comfortably reach out and reprimand them when Hange gets too carried away.
- Mikasa Ackermann – Mikasa quickly took a disliking to Levi, one of the first actions she witnesses is of him beating Eren at his military trial. Since then, Mikasa held a grudge against Levi, swearing to one day make him pay for his actions. She would later lash out at Levi, blaming him for Eren’s capture by the Female Titan, and her carelessness would later result in Levi needing to rescue her at the cost of injuring his leg. By the time of the Scout Regiment’s rebellion, Mikasa has largely set aside her bitterness for Levi, choosing to trust his leadership. The two share the last name Ackermann, indicating both hail from the same bloodline.
- Armin Arlelt – Armin seems to greatly respect Levi for his incredible skills and ability to fight Titans. In turn, Levi has grown to acknowledge Armin’s impressive deductive skills and ability to form plans. Despite his general coldness towards others, Levi has given Armin emotional support whenever he doubts himself: this was first seen after Armin killed an enemy soldier to protect Jean, and while Levi admits it was still murder, he thanks Armin for ensuring that every member of his squad survived. Then, after learning Armin was given the injection instead of Erwin and wondering why he was saved when Erwin was the most logical choice, Levi tells Armin that he has powers and skills that no one else does.
- Petra Rall – Petra served under Levi in the Scout Regiment and was later hand-picked by him to be in his first Special Operations Squad. She harbored a deep respect for him and was proud to be a part of his team. Levi seemed to trust her and her capabilities as a soldier, as she held one of the highest records for killing Titans (48 assist kills and 10 solo kills). After Petra was killed by the Female Titan, Levi guarded her body until the Scouts had to retreat back to the Wall. He was horrified when he was informed (by her father, after her death) about Petra’s intentions to devote her life to him.
- Isabel Magnolia – She was a close friend and family to Levi. When they lived below the capital, she always used to name him as her big brother. Levi was very protective over Isabel, even killing two men after they cut off a piece of her hair. Her death was one of the reasons why Levi became a part so important of the Scout Regiment.
- Furlan Church – He was a close friend and family to Levi. When they lived below the capital, he was Levi’s confidante when they lived in the Underground City. He was also the reason why Levi became a part so important of the Scout Regiment.
- Kenny Ackermann – Levi was raised and taught by Kenny in the underground as a child, and Levi appeared somewhat traumatized when Kenny abandoned him. Because of this, he appears to be familiar with Levi’s character, predicting on one occasion that he would not have to search for him as Levi will show himself in due time. Despite their past history, he does not appear to harbor much sentiment for Levi, attempting to kill him multiple times when they are on opposite sides of a conflict. Even so, Levi does appear to harbor some form of sentiment towards Kenny, and appeared mildly shocked and saddened when he watched Kenny die in front of him. Kenny later revealed that he was the older brother of Levi’s mother, making him Levi’s uncle. Levi was shocked to learn this and questioned his reason for abandoning him. In his last words, Kenny stated he was unfit to be a parent, and Levi then watched solemnly as his uncle died.
- Kuchel Ackermann – Kuchel was Levi’s mother and the person who raised him before passing away from a terminal illness when Levi was just a young child. Although little is known about Kuchel other than her being Levi’s mother and Kenny’s sister, she appeared to be a loving mother to Levi, and it is very likely that Levi was close with her and loved her deeply. This is evidenced by the fact that Kuchel is shown shedding tears of joy while hugging her newborn son, as well as the fact that Levi appeared visibly devastated by her death after Kenny found him in the brothel.
- His name is Hebrew in origin, and means “attached” or “joining.”
- His name was inspired by a person from the American documentary Jesus Camp.
- Levi’s age is one of several mysteries Isayama has hinted about in interviews. He once stated that Levi is “surprisingly old,” but declined to give an exact answer beyond stating that he is “older than 30.”
- In Levi, Erwin, and Hange’s character interview, it was said that Levi forcefully bathes Hange by knocking them unconscious.

- He only sleeps an average of 2–3 hours.
- Isayama has said that if he could say one thing to Levi, it would be, “Go quickly to sleep,” as Levi suffers from slight bouts of insomnia. Also, Levi does not change clothes before going to sleep, as it is such a non-event for him. Rather than sleeping in a bed, Levi just sleeps in his chair.
- It was also confirmed that due to living in the Underground in an unsanitary state in his younger years, he longed for a clean home. That may be the reason for his obsession with cleaning.
- Levi’s short height was inspired in part by Might Adam’s Astro Boy, and in part by Kyuzo from the film “The Seven Samurai.”
