Seeing that he was on his last legs, Levi tries to get a few more answers from his former guardian before he can pass on, starting with whether he knew anything about the former King before Rod, and his reason for not wanting mankind to survive by caging them in these walls.
Unfortunately he really wasn’t able to acquire such knowledge from Uri, even though they had a fairly close relationship as friends. However he did know that that reason was the cause of the bad blood between the Royal Family and the Ackermans; which is probably the closest clue that they will have until they manage to find something on their next quest that will give them more introspective answers to the truth.
And before he could let him slip away for good, Levi ((possibly for the first time)) gets into more personal questions with Kenny as he asks what kind of relationship he shared with his mother, Kuchel, and in finding out that he was in fact his Uncle follows this with a doleful and lonely question of why he had abandoned him back then if their blood ties ran that deep between them.
While he may not show it since he knew how to keep a good poker face, I bet Kenny felt sadden at the idea of deserting Levi that day, especially since he was his kid sister’s only child and his last living blood relative that he knew of. But being filled with the insecurity that he was not worthy of ever being a parent with the kind of life he led, he thought that what he was doing for him was in his best interest so that he could pursue his own life without being burden with the reputation of scum like him.
Yet despite having abandoned him and claiming to be someone unfit to be a parent, when it comes down to it Kenny didn’t completely desert him to a despairing fate when he could have, and even took it upon himself to at least teach him what he knew to survive this brutal and unforgiving world.
And if that wasn’t already enough, he even leaves to him the serum that he had stolen from Rod as a form of both redemption and an inheritance of his will in the hopes that Levi will be able to create the future that he desires for mankind.
He may have lived all his life thinking he was scum, but Kenny ended up dying a real man in the eyes of his nephew.
This is actually a snippet from my fanfiction, Flowers and Leather. Enjoy!
“Come on Petra! The show has already started!” The
teenage girl with the bright red hair in pigtails tugged on the older ginger
haired girl’s arm.
“I’m right here Isabel!” Petra continued to get
dragged along by the 16 year old.
She was still so intrigued by how the girl was able to get
herself and Petra, who was only 20, into 21 and older shows just for being
Levi’s little sister. Levi certainly knew a lot of people, and she was learning
that quickly. Isabel continued to pull her along until they got into the bar,
which was dim and loud, and also smoky from the patrons that were smoking
cigarettes. It smelled immensely of booze, as it was already after 10 and
people were drinking nonstop. The atmosphere was loud and hyped up, and it
seemed like everyone was highly enjoying the show onstage. Petra averted her
gaze to the stage, where Levi’s band, called Titan Slayers, was playing. Nanaba
stood front and center, singing into the microphone and strumming on her
guitar. Mike stood to the back left of her, playing bass. Hanji was directly in
back on a slightly raised platform, playing drums, and Levi was to the back
right, jamming out on his guitar. Petra’s face went hot as she looked at Levi,
a slight flush crossing her cheeks. This wasn’t the first time she had seen his
band play, and loved seeing them every time. Of course lately, the unsaid
tension had been building up between her and Levi, and she was into him…a
lot. She just wasn’t sure how he felt, for it was so hard to read him.
Regardless, she continued to spend time with him and his friends, growing
rather fond of and close to all of them. She wasn’t sure what would happen if
she told Levi how she felt, but she did know one thing; he looked good on that
stage. Tattoos, piercings, and a musician; All of her friends would say that
Levi was her complete opposite, but if that much was true, then why was she so
attracted to him and his lifestyle?
Isabel kept dragging Petra around, pushing through the crowd
to get to the front as the music got louder and louder.
“It’s so crowded, wow!” Petra yelled over the
“Of course! Big brother’s band is one of the popular
ones!” Isabel looked at her excitedly. “At least, they’re getting up
