Ledo is the main protagonist of Gargantia on the Verdorous Planet. For his whole life, Ledo has been raised under the harsh and strict regime of the Galactic Alliance of Humankid for one single purpose: to fight and win the war against the race known as the Hideauze. To that end, Ledo is asigned to pilot the Machine Caliber code-named Chamber. After a difficult fight, Ledo and Chamber are forced to make blind FTL jump, which leads them to fall into Earth, the long-lost homeworld of humanity. There, they are discovered by the Gargantia fleet and, with no apparent way to return to the Alliance, they must make a home for themselves in the new world.
