Chimera Ant Division Leader
Rental Pod 「Favor Issuing Machine」
Leol (レオル, Reoru) was a Chimera Ant that resembled an anthropomorphic lion. Before the death of the Chimera Ant Queen, he was known as Hagya (ハギャ, Hagya) and was one of the more particularly disloyal squadron leaders. His own squad however was fully loyal to him.
Leol resembles a very large male lion, and is one of the few Chimera Ants that wears clothes. He wears sandals and a necklace adorned with a human skull, and he has a paw tattoo on each eyebrow. Leol's body also bears tiger stripes all over.
Leol, for the most part, is a very calm and collected Chimera Ant. He does, however, have a cruel side to him. He, like the rest of Chimera Ants, enjoys killing humans, and even remarked that killing them is highly addictive. Leol is also socially proficient, which is displayed through the tactics he employs to gain other people's Nen abilities. He was one of the few Chimera Ants, who were not particularly loyal Squadron Leaders, that would kill more humans than they brought to the Queen. Leol also doesn't want anyone to know about his Nen ability, although he does show it to Welfin, Hina, and Flutter. However, he lies about how it actually works. Aside from this, Leol can also be laid-back at times, as he does seem to enjoy listening to music.
Not much is known about Leol's past, except that he remembers his past life as a lion. It is unknown if he even remembers his past life as a human, or even if he ever had one to begin with. Before the Queen died giving birth to the King, Leol was one of her Squadron Leaders who deliberately kept humans for himself to eat. After witnessing the Queen's death, Leol, like many of the other Squadron Leaders, left the chimera ant colony and tried to start his own kingdom.
Chimera Ant arc
Leol is one of the Chimera Ants to motivate them from leaving the Queen's nest and search for a new place. During Morel and Knov’s primary infiltration of the King's palace in East Gorteau, Leol faces Morel in combat. He assumes he is victorious after submerging Morel in an underground church using a stolen ability, but dies by asphyxiation due to a cunning strategy put into action by Morel.
Abilities & Powers
Being a Chimera Ant, Leol is endowed with all the benefits granted by his race. Due to his lion's genes, he has strong jaws, capable of tearing off a grown woman's upper body with one bite. He is adept at conspiring and scheming, moving other Ants from the shadows to achieve his goals. According to him, a throw of his harpoon can pierce a whale swimming deep in the sea, hinting he has both great physical strength and accuracy.
Leol is a Specialist. Thanks to Shaiapouf he mastered his ability in three days, although he considers himself slow. He is able to adapt very quickly to his borrowed abilities, identifying their main strengths efficiently and selecting the most suited to the situation; however, he is not as skilled when it comes to recognizing their downsides, since he did not know that the water summoned through Inamura would not recede after disengaging the technique because he was underground.
|Leol's Nen Abilities|
|Type: Specialization||Rental Pod (|
|Leol is a Specialist and his Nen ability is called Rental Pod. Leol's Hatsu allows him to temporarily borrow the Nen abilities of other people. Leol must fulfill two conditions for each ability he wants to borrow.
If the owner of an ability dies, their information is automatically erased from the machine and their ability can no longer be used. To access another's Hatsu, Leol uses the dispenser to print out and tear up a receipt, which grants him use of the ability for one hour. During this time, the ability cannot be used by its original owner.
|Type: Conjuration||Inamura (|
|A borrowed Nen ability Leol uses during his fight against Morel, named after Inamura Point, a popular location for surfing in Japan. The ability is owned by a friend of Morel's named Gracchan, and can only be used on a rainy day. A surfing board and a trident harpoon are conjured by the user, as huge waves of water appear, seemingly from nowhere. Both the surfing board and trident are razor sharp and are used as weapons.
While this ability is active, Leol can use a technique called Tornave (
|Type: Manipulation, Conjuration||Super Eye (|
