Leonhart (レオンハルト, Reonharuto) is one of the main character of Sacrificial Princess and the King of Beasts. He is the current king of the kingdom of Ozmargo.
- Beast form:
He has a very large figure that stands al least two meters in height, with paws that have razor sharp claws that can easily rip and shred enemies to pieces. Thick dark brown fur covers his large muscular body with a tail that is "bushy" and "soft" as Sariphi describes.
He has pair of crimson eyes that has a stare that can easily frighten anyone he looks at.
He wears a simple formal attire with long sleeves that is colored black with a bottom part colored white. He usually wears a cape with the rest of the attire.
- Human form:
In the light of a full moon every month he takes the shape of a human. In this shape he retains some of his characteristics of his beast counter part. Most noticeably his crimson eyes, horns and his teeth still has small fangs.
He is slender built man is his early twenties with long black hair that stretches all the way to to his back.
He describes this form as curse that is useless and powerless.
He is said to be a fierce king that leads his countrymen with equal form of brutality and cruelty, but in reality he is a kind and caring king that wants nothing more then his subjects to feel safe and secure in his country. He shows is brutal side not because he wants to, but because he sees it as a means to keep his country political parties in check. He fears that others will try and usurp him if he doesn't keep his appearance as a strong king.
Behind his stern and brutal exterior he has a softer side, one he rarely shows to anyone, but after Sariphi came into his life he started to show his more gentler side more public, to Anubis great discomfort. He sacrifices very much to the throne and he says that it is only when Sariphi is besides him that can make him forget about such a pressing job.
Easily angered, especially when Anubis and the other senators schemes behind his back. He is not afraid to show his anger around people and will even go so far to kill anyone he feels have either disrespected him or his future queen. He once almost killed a noble after said noble "slighted" Sariphi when the noble made her trip and spill wine over him.
Not much is revealed about him his background, but in a few flashbacks it's shown he was a cheerful kid that had a kind and cheerful disposition. He did seem to have a strenuous relationship to his father and his mother is not mentioned at all.
Powers and abilities
Powerful magic: As the king of all beast kind he has the power to back that position up. As a child he was shown to have a tremendous amount of magical power. Enough power to make a group of kidnappers shake in fear after he unleashed it when he was angered. It seems like his powers are directly related to the amount of "Miasma" that is currently in the air. And he becomes powerless when that disappears when its full moon or when a storm blows the miasma away.
Battleprowess: Leonhart was trained in the art of warfare and thus is the way of the sword. He can effortlessly repel attacks from weaker enemies, such as Illiya when they went head to head after Sariphie was kidnapped. He even didn't brand his sword with him and fought him barehanded.
