Leon is a villain and character representing Final Fantasy II.

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. Leon's stern face and quiet disposition may make him seem much older then his nineteen years.

In the story, he continues to work as the Emperor's right hand and works closely with Ultimecia's own knight Seifer becoming a trusted comrade with the other youth.

Shamed he reunites with Seifer and together they overcome Zemus who threatens to cast them into the abyss.
