Biography

Leo's profile
“ One of the six renowned Zexen Knights. With his immense physique, the blow from his broad axe is unrivaled. ”

Leo is one of the renowned Six Mighty Knights, the most skilled of the Zexen Knights. His size and strength, combined with his imposing armour, has led him to hold the nickname "Iron Leo".

When Leo first entered the ranks of the Zexen Knights, he had brute strength but was not much with a sword, leading to many sullen hours practising futilely. It would be Knight Captain Galahad who would suggest that Leo leverage his power by wielding an axe in battle, restoring Leo's zeal. As a result of Galahad's advice, Leo was soon one of the most powerful knights.

After the death of Galahad, Leo felt guilty for not being there to protect his captain. He would swear to protect Chris Lightfellow with his life to make up for this. Following the War of the Champions, Leo would continue to serve the Zexen Knights proudly in their border disputes with the Tinto Republic, always giving his all.
