Why? Because it's fun. Duh. With humans you can tell what they are thinking the instant they die. Once you have had a taste you cannot get enough.

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.[1] His own squad however was fully loyal to him.

Leol's appearance

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.

Personality

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.[1] 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.[1] 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.

Background

Not much is known about Leol's past, except that he remembers his past life as a lion.[2] 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.

Plot

Chimera Ant arc

Hunter X Hunter - 107 - Large 13-2-

Leol, killed by Morel using carbon dioxide poisoning.

Leol is one of the Chimera Ants to motivate them from leaving the Queen's nest  and search for a new place.[3] 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 stronger than an average human. As one of the former Squadron Leaders, he had authority over his underlings, although it is unclear how much influence he retained after the death of the Queen. Even prior to acquiring Inamura, seemingly one of the abilities in his arsenal that he prizes the most, he managed to defeat the possessor of that ability, a Hunter named Grachan, although the circumstances of their fight are unknown.

Enhanced Strength: Due to his lion genes, he has strong jaws, capable of tearing off a grown woman's upper body with one bite. 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.

High Intelligence: Leol is adept at conspiring and scheming, moving other Ants from the shadows to achieve his goals.

Nen

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 Type: Specialization
Type: Specialization Rental Pod (謝債発行機 (レンタルポッド) I.O.U. Dispenser)
Rental Pod 2011 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.
  1. First, he must know the name of the ability or have seen it being used.
  2. Second, he must do the owner of the ability a favor, and confirm acceptance of the debt with a question (along the lines of "You owe me, alright?").
  3. Once Leol fulfills the conditions, the name of the owner, the name of the ability, and the number of times it can be used (once per favor done for the owner) are all automatically recorded in the I.O.U. Dispenser, a small device resembling an iPod.

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 and Manipulation Super Eye (超複眼 (スーパーアイ) Super Compound Eyes)
Borrowed super eye A borrowed ability gained by one of Leol's underlings, Flutter. Super Eye allows Leol to see out the eyes of the Satellite Dragonflies he manipulates for reconnaissance, being able to scout a large area from a safe location.
Type: Conjuration and Manipulation Inamura (TUBE (イナムラ) )
Inamura 2011

Tornave 2011
Big Wall

A borrowed Nen ability Leol uses during his fight against Morel, named after Inamura Point, a popular location for surfing in Japan. The ability was created by a friend of Morel's named Grachan, 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. Thanks to them, the user can move freely on the water, while the movements of the opponent are hindered considerably.

While this ability is active, Leol can use a technique called Tornave (渦波 (トルナイヴ) Maelstrom) by spinning the surfboard in place horizontally, creating a vortex of water that sucks anything nearby to the center and also making an easy target for a harpoon attack. Leol can also use a technique called Big Wall (大波 (ビックウォール) Giant Wave), causing the water underneath him to swell up into a gigantic tidal wave and crash down on anything or anyone in front of it. Both techniques utilize Manipulation co control the water.
