Leon is a villain and character representing Final Fantasy II. In the original game he was a youth from Fynn but when his home and family is killed he is seperated and captured by the Emperor's Black Knights. Leon swore fealty to the Emperor and became his majordomo masquerading as the villainous Dark Knight. However he revealed his true colors after the Emperor's defeat intending to sieze control of the vast power the tyrant commanded for himself. But Leon was thwarted by the Emperor's ressurection and realized the error of his ways, reuniting with his family and together they vanquished the Emperor.
