|5★||A young man who appears in tales from a distant world, where he features in a story of an empire and the rebellion against it. After the Palamecian Empire gains control of Fynn, Leon leaves the empire's forces to become the Dark Knight. He is then tasked with the building of the Dreadnought and serves as the right-hand man of the Emperor, doing his bidding throughout the land. Leon encounters Firion and the others under the guise of the Dark Knight numerous times, but it was not until they heard him speak that his sister Maria recognized his true identity.|
|4★||I've become stronger!|
There's no way I'm letting go
of this new power!
|5★||This power is mine!|
I'm not giving it to anyone!
|5★||What is it that rules over all?|
It's power, I tell you!
|4★||It was you who called upon me?|
You think you can beat me?
I will not abandon my responsibilities
and leave you in the thick of it.
|To have supported me,|
a betrayer of my homeland, for so long...
You're quite a curious one.
- Leon has a variation: Dark Knight Leon.
- He is also known as Leonheart in the Japanese version. This was shortened to "Leon" in English releases of the game due to character limitations.
- Coincidentally, Leon's Japanese name is the same as the surname of Final Fantasy VIII's protagonist, Squall Leonheart.
- Leon is the first playable character in the franchise to be an antagonist, having been kidnapped by Palamecia and brainwashed into serving as their Dark Knight.
- Leon's Limit Burst animation is a reference to the Black Knights fought by Firion, Maria, Guy and Leon himself in the opening scene of Final Fantasy II.
