Lance Corporal Levi is one of the top soldiers in the Scouting Legion.
Little is known about his history thus far except that it was rumoured that he was once a thug in underground crime until he was picked up by the current commander of the Scouting Legion, Irvin Smith.
Levi is created by Hajime Isayama.
He has black hair that is combed sideways and sharp blue eyes that look quite intimidating. The back of his head is a buzz cut style. He is 160 cm tall and weighs 65 kg.
Levi is a man of discipline who holds great respect for order and structure but also abhors authoritative organizations and sects, particularly the Military Police and the Wallists, often degrading them and openly stating his resentment.
He seems obsessed with cleanliness as demonstrated when he detests having his hands stained by Titan blood. However, he will gladly grab a dying soldier's hand. Although he often tends to put up a cold demeanour, he greatly values human life and has a strong sense of honor when he listens to a soldier's last words.
Soldier: "W-Was I able...to help humanity? Or will I die, never having been of any use at all?"
Levi: "You have done a great deal. And you will continue to do so. The resolve you leave behind will give me strength. I promise you... I will obliterate the Titans!"
Levis is also shown to have a sadistic side. When the Scouting Legion had captured The Female Titan, he taunts her saying that he would enjoy "cutting off her limbs from her human body" and "have fun" seeing her suffer. In addition, Levi is quite merciless and ruthless when killing Titans, always keeping up his cold and callous expression.
After Eren reverted back from his Titan form and became surrounded by a horde of Titans, Levi shows up, after returning from the Scouting Legion's expedition, and easily kills them, rescuing an unconscious Eren and his teammates. As he wakes up, Eren finds himself in a prison cell, shackled. Levi and Irvin explain the situation, with the former ensuring Eren that the higher-ups will approve him joining the Scouting Legion and that he will make sure he doesn't get out of hand.
