Anton was the head of the Russian mafia. He was also the owner of his restaurant, Levin's Restaurant. He was the father of Mikhail Levin and the father of Eva Coleman's (Mikhail's girlfriend) unborn child.
Anton was bald and had white facial hair. He sported blue eyes and wore a gold chain, an untidy blue shirt, and a red blazer. In addition, he wore a pair of red and black glasses.
Anton was found dead in his restaurant on a chair bleeding over the floor. Nathan counted 36 oddly shaped wounds on Anton's head during the autopsy. From the angle of wounds, they deduced that the killer was 6 foot tall and that he died fighting. During the fight, he scratched his killer's face. During investigation, it was discovered he was murdered with a meat tenderizer.
