Farlan was a young man with grey eyes and rather pale brown hair. His bangs hung over his forehead, between his eyes. Before he joined the Survey Corps, Farlan's civilian clothes featured a simple long-sleeve white shirt with knee-high boots.
Farlan, in contrast to Isabel, was very focused, and was able to make the distinction between when to have fun and when to be serious. Like Levi, Farlan was usually depicted as level-headed and calm, but disliked when things got out of control. He had a clear understanding of when he was defeated, and stopped resisting if he knew that he had lost. Farlan placed a lot of trust in Levi, and followed his decisions and leadership without question.
Prior to the fall of Wall Maria, Farlan was a delinquent roaming the capital's Underground District. At one point in time, Farlan decided to test Levi's strength by having him fight a group of thugs. Farlan's plan was to see if Levi was worth recruiting into his group of thugs or not, but was surprised to see Levi beat them all singlehandedly. He then decides to join Levi (though it is unknown how he convinced Levi as he neglects to tell Isabel the rest of his story).
Alongside his companions, Levi and Isabel, they were notorious for having a strong reputation (due to Levi's strength). Having somehow obtained and learned how to use 3DMG, Farlan eventually finds himself and his companions captured by Erwin Smith of the Survey Corps. After Levi is blackmailed into joining the Corps, Farlan and Isabel choose to follow him, all three resolve to one day claw their way into a better life.
On his first expedition outside the walls, Farlan assisted Levi in taking down a Titan. While obviously nervous and unsettled at the thought of fighting a Titan, he gained his courage and morale upon seeing Levi charge into battle.
The next day of the expedition, due to heavy rain, Levi decided to take the chance to hunt down Erwin, using the rain to his advantage. Farlan advises caution but Levi brushes him off. Despite Farlan's protests, Levi forced the conversation to a close and sets of to kill Erwin.
After Levi left to find Erwin, five Titans attacked the squad Isabel and Farlan were part of with most of them being maimed or devoured. Levi returned to find the Titans attacking the squad with Isabel and Farlan trying to avoid the battle, but as they fled, Farlan's horse fell along with Farlan due to the mud. Farlan continued to run away on foot while Isabel used her 3DMG to distract the Titans and managed to avoid their grips. However, as one got a clear view of her, it tripped and crashed into the Titan she had attached her 3DMG hooks into. Isabel called out to Levi for help, before being crushed in between both Titans. Her death causes Farlan to turn around and confront the Titans but he realizes that his fall had badly damaged his equipment. Upon seeing Levi, Farlan waved to him like he used to in the underground streets in a farewell gesture and mouthed the words; 'See you later.'. He was then grabbed and devoured by a Titan. Levi killed the Titan and extracted Farlan from the Titan that consumed him. However, by this time, Farlan's body had been ravaged and he was already dead.
Having witnessed the deaths of the two first true friends he ever had, Levi went into blind rage and killed all the Titans. Upon confronting Erwin, who had seen the steam from the fallen Titans, Levi attacked and attempt to kill him, blaming him for their deaths. But Erwin questioned what would have happened if Levi had stayed with his friends instead of leavin them to fend for themselves while he had gone forward blindly and without thinking. This caused Levi to believe that it was his own arrogance that got his friends killed.
However, Erwin refuted this stating that the real reason for their deaths were the Titans and the lack of knowledge that the humans had on them. He went on about how the rich humans inside the Walls choose to turn a blind eye to the swath of destruction that is happening right outside their doors. To conclude, Erwin stated that the Scouts are Humanity's only hope of being free and asked Levi again to join them. This time Levi accepted.
They made a full withdrawal for the Walls, while Levi took one last look at the steaming corpses of Titans that would serve as a grave for Farlan and Isabel.
