Why are Levi and his quotes important?
Levi Ackerman is often refereed to as Captain Levi, the squad captain of the Special Operations Squad within the Survey Corps and is thought of as humans strongest hope.
People who know Levi personally describe him as being a “clean freak” due to his childhood, as he prefers to be spotless as well as an environment around him. The soldier has been known to wipe away blood-smeared blades on the battlefield, during the fight, and is opposed to having either himself or his equipment soiled. Regardless, he does not hesitate to touch filth if he feels it is necessary.
Levi is not very approachable despite his obsession with cleanliness. Other people perceive him as being cold, as he rarely shows emotion. Often, his remarks are coarse or unseemly, and his manner of speaking is blunt, even insulting. Those who oppose or irritate him are not above being provoked or belittled by him. As a result of this, he tends to have a vulgar, insulting, and dark sense of humor. Many people find him unsettling for all of these reasons, but that is why Levi’s quotes are pure gold.
It is no problem for Levi to show open disdain for any authority other than those he respects. His obedience is mostly limited to those he respects. He mocked several MPs by claiming that they did not know how to deal with Eren and called the merchants “pigs” during Eren’s tribunal, desiring to shame them beyond recognition. So sarcastically he suggested they join the Survey Corps, that they backed off. Since he had a criminal past before he joined the Survey Corps, he resents most of the MPs for their attempts to undermine the Survey Corps.
Levi is a moral and empathic individual, but he rarely shows it. The value he places on human life is one of his most defining characteristics. This was demonstrated especially when it was revealed that all Titans were once human. He is deeply disturbed by the fact that he has been killing humans without knowing it.
The truth is Levi took no pleasure in Eren’s beating, but for his own survival, he was willing to resort to violence. That is why he eventually asked Eren whether he resented him. His subordinates are expected to use their judgment in order to avoid blunders that could result in casualties. Levi himself has said that he dislikes unnecessary casualties.
As a result of the hazardous nature of his profession and his own values, he cares deeply for the welfare of his subordinates.
Although Levi is well aware that his fighting skills and his skin exceed almost all other human soldiers, he does not appear arrogant about it, as he knows from experience that no human soldier is invulnerable. There are few people who would argue with his claims that he is the only one capable of handling difficult tasks, since he has already proven his capability.
All this makes Levi a really cool character and that is why we had a pleasure finding his best quotes.
