gender: my modern au levi is a trans guy, living as male. he’s pre hormones, pre surgery, but having therapy mainly at erwin’s insistence. on one lunch break shortly after levi came out to him erwin dug through the nhs website for information, consulted his own doctor on levi’s behalf and sacrificed his lunch for a few months to pay for him to see a private psychiatrist. (levi just would not go to see his gp, who’s known him since he was tiny.) he’s quite femme but is very adamant with his pronouns and chosen name. only erwin, farlan and isabel know his birth name. he’s sworn to kill them if they ever tell.
sexual orientation: pansexual. after personality it is important to him how a person looks, but their gender is an absolute non-issue. before he met erwin he would sometimes mess around with petra (trans girl) and while he was sexually attracted to her it was solely for the sake of satisfying both their needs, with neither of them having any intention of it progressing further. he’s currently with erwin (cis male) and fairly happy, given the circumstances.
romantic orientation: demiromantic. levi opens up very slowly to others, and while he now trusts erwin fully he definitely didn’t for the first few years they knew each other. it was only once they had established that mutual trust in their friendship, and only after erwin confessed first, that levi began to feel any romantic attraction to him at all. even then it took him a few months, a lot of heartache, and seemingly endless patience on erwin’s part.
