Levi Ackerman has narrow grey eyes. He has dark circles under his eyes. He has short black hair with an undercut. His hair is parted to the side always. He is rather short compared to his fellow soldiers. Regardless of his height, his well-developed physique with a muscular body is due to the constant usage of vertical manoeuvring equipment. He is almost always clad with armour and has the Scout Regiment’s uniform on. He has a cold expressionless demeanour.

Levi is known to be one of the strongest fighters in the Survey Corps. He is respected and feared. He is not someone who expresses his emotions. He doesn’t speak unless he has to. He’s a calm, level-headed guy, and aloof. While he can be expressionless, the most expressive is when he’s fighting against the Titans. He also feels terrible about the fact that he realizes that he has been killing humans all along. It almost feels like the hard truths he learns about the world, the more desperate he feels.

Especially while fighting, when someone close to him gets harmed, he gets angry and blinded by rage. Though he is in a state of rage, he is good at making decisions spontaneously. He is also a brilliant observer and tactful. Throughout the series, he is seen as an unapproachable guy, but he can be very supportive and says the right the at the right time. He’s also observant and intuitive. He’s got what it takes to survive in the world of Titans. 

He’s also meticulous. He needs his surroundings to be spotless. When observed, he cleans blood off his sword in the middle of fighting Titans. Levi is protective and supportive of people he likes. He does not hold back on showing his disdain toward the Military Police, calls them incompetent and unable to handle Eren Yeager. While he is an honest man, he speaks the truth. He also loves chatting with old friends.

Levi Ackerman as a child

Levi Ackerman is part of one of the strongest clans in Attack on Titan . He’s the son of Kuchel Ackerman, who worked in the Underground as a prostitute. His uncle, Kuchel’s brother is Kenny Ackerman and the man Levi once lived and trained with. Kenny, who rarely shows any compassion, decided to train Levi with knife skills, combat, and how to control his violent behaviour.  

He resides within Wall Rose. During his childhood, pre-Survey Corps, he was a criminal who didn’t know how to communicate with other people, and often violent. He grows up to be a remarkable man of honour and duty after joining the Survey Corps under the command of Commander Erwin Smith.

In the Attack on Titan series, The Ackerman clan abilities are a sort of ability where one gains an extreme amount of power at a sudden point in their life. This power is feared and has been the reason for Ackerman’s strength. Levi Ackerman has gained the ability which also plays a huge role in his agile power. This “power” is the enhancement of the physical abilities of the Ackerman people. The Ackerman people were experimented on- using titan science to become supernatural beings to serve the Eldian Empire.
