Intelligence: Leon is never fought as a boss during his tenure as the Dark Knight, but is just as skilled as his friends Firion and Guy as well as his sister Maria. He is proficient in a wide variety of magic, having a high intelligence rating and favors swords, axes, and spears in melee combat, which he is equally proficient in due to his high Strength and Stamina ratings.

Weaknesses: Nothing notable

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Cure XVI: Heals the caster's or chosen ally's (upwards of four people at once) wounds instantly upon usage. Limited to healing upwards of fatally injured, yet still entirely intact, bodies due to a lack of quantifiable feats.
  • Mind Control: Used on the town of Bafsk to enslave them and force them into constructing the mega Airship, the Dreadnought, over a span of time no longer than a few weeks. Upon handing command of Bafsk over to Borghen, the hold Leon had over the town disappeared, with none being able to remember what their time spent under his thumb was like.

Note: Not to be confused with Leon from Kingdom Hearts. Little canon information is available in regards to what magic the party may or may not possess (sans Leon having learned and mastered Cure [confirmed by the cutscene in Soul of Rebirth]), thus it is up to the thread maker to specify what sort of magic, if any, Leon has at his disposal at the start of a match.
