Emanuel Levi was born and raised in Israel, born into a poor family his family were often hard up on cash and struggled to get by every week. He had average grades in school however was exceptionally good at physical fitness, often running to clear his mind in the early morning before his school started, after he finished his education he decided to go into army training from the age of 17, the bear minimum for a soldier within the IDF, he hoped to not only make enough money to keep his family fed but to also make his father proud by serving to defend Israel and all within it.
Originally in the IDF this soldier showed much potential and upon a UN inspection of his unit was offered a placement in the UN, Emanuel decided that he would graciously accept the offer into the UNs ranks as he was tired of hatred between Israel and Palestine and he wished to get away from the madness. He was stationed with a small squadron onto the border of Chernarus He had known that something had gone on in this country to warrant such intervention but he never believed the rumours until he encountered those monsters himself, out of his squad only him and a friend survived, as they had lost all contact with command and didn't have any idea what to do at that time, all they could do was try to contact other UN members and survive, hopefully he and his friend could contact their command and carry on the mission he was originally intended to do.
Update 1(78 days into infection):
The UN's official mission was over the evacuation had happened and Levi was now trapped in this hell hole, he and Suzaku, his close friend, didn't make it to evacuation, they had been wounded defending an injured comrade back in camp and couldn't make it in time to evac. They had believed they were left alone, stranded and injured they camped within the woods, licking their wounds and contemplating what to do next.
A week or so after the evac levi had found some of his old comrades he had believed left him, relieved he talked to them discussing the events that had happened while he was injured. He found out many of his friends had stayed and were now staying together, protecting each other and helping the weak, a group of once comrades now become a family. Although Levi was hesitant to leave Suzaku alone he decided he would hand around with the remnants of the UN until Suzaku was well enough to join him.
Current state of Levi:
After being injured from a burst of M4 rounds Levi was placed on medication from Elizabeth, pain killers the strongest they could find, in order to stop the pain from effecting Levi too harshly. However after the camp went down he was no longer able to get his supply of pain killers, he began to feel an iche to have more, even though he had gone over the time in which Elizabeth had explained he would require his pain killers he felt the need for them, a craving of sorts. Levi was now looking for pain killers where ever he could find them and taking them unnecessarily, could this mean his addicted, or is he just taking them out of anxiety of the pain of his wounds returning, we will have to find out.
