Basic information:
Personality
Leer is is a quiet person, prefers to be alone, but doesn't mind if he's in the company of a large crowd. He looks mean and dangerous, but he's actually socially awkward, not having the right mind to hold a decent conversation for more than two minutes, with the exception of his companion, Zev (it's a dog...), who also serves as Leer's guardian. Once you get to know him, he's a kind, childish guy. He doesn't particularly hate talking, but he prefers to keep his thoughts in his head. He dislikes talking about touchy subjects, especially if he or the other is uncomfortable with it. 

He likes helping people, because he doesn't like to see others getting a hard time. When having difficulties finding for solutions, he gets frustrated at himself. He is also easily flattered, since he does not get compliments often. He'd often use his tail to hide his embarrassment or his face when he is blushing.

In contrast to his childish attitude, he gets extremely serious in battle. He relies on his skills and intuition when dealing with enemies he has not experienced fighting against, and his ability to pick up information when faced with an enemy he has a hard time dealing with. He only fights when he deems it necessary, and hates conflicts that have no meaning.

Leer is also the curious type that gets absorbed into anything he has taken interest in, most probably because of his Elven blood that naturally strives for knowledge. He also values the importance and beauty of everything, most significantly the goodness inside everyone (even if most people would judge by his looks). He sees everyone equally, and believes that his friends will always be friends, even if they are considered and enemy or evil, he believes in his own ideals.

Story
Leer was born in Altair, from his Krilaty father, Edral, and Elf mother, Raiwyn. A year after his birth, when the Cavea-Sveltis incident occurred, his mother was driven away from Altair, and never seen since then. Edral was left to take care of his son and taught him how to use magic and swordplay. When he was 7, Leer found a wild dog injured and caught in a monster trap as he and his father were traveling to Miyagi. The dog was initially hostile against anyone, even to Leer who tended to the animal while it was injured, much to his dismay, and later named the dog Zev. When they begin to understand each other, the first thing they do is to argue with trivial things, and always ends up having Zev as the winner (with Edral chuckling in the sidelines). Edral left the two in Miyagi, when Leer was 12, in the care of an unnamed master. One time, Leer wanted to go with his father and escaped from the temple. He found himself ambushed by a group of monsters he could not defeat at the lack of experience. He was saved by Zev in the nick of time, who also said to him that his selfishness would end up paying with his life when he could continue helping others just like how he helped Zev when he was injured. Since then, he started helping others when they need it. 

In his teenage years, he trained to raise his speed to keep up with the lack of power. When he thought his speed won't be enough, he made an additional feature to his sword that makes him able to throw it as a projectile and pull it back. He trained with this weapon along with his hobby of hunting (and failed a few times and ended up not having to eat for some time, until his master gave him something to eat). He hunts to learn how to be independent and be able to survive on his own, and to help the others in the temple so that they could have something to eat while they are busy with training. As the years went by, his father has not yet returned from his quest to find Raiwyn.

After knowing that there's nothing left for him to do there, he set out to the world with Zev to search for answers and help others. However, he gets sidetracked as he gets immersed into whatever trouble he gets in.

Miscellaneous Info:
  • Leer behaves similarly to a fox, as his design is based on one. With this, he is also afraid of lynxes and wolves (he'd rather run).
  • He likes his tail very much (it's actually very silky). He hugs it when he sleeps.
  • He can show and retract his nails on his right hand, but does not use it for fighting.
  • He's left-handed. He can pull his weapon with either hands but only uses his left when handling the sword.
  • You can as much see his emotions with his ears and tail. His ears twitch when he senses something, lower when he's sad, etc. His tail swishes when he's excited, stands still when serious.
  • His favorite food is a kind of berries found on cliffs or near mountains.
  • He doesn't use a Cavea-Sveltis, because his father taught him to rely on his own strengths and abilities. So much more because he gets headaches when he's very near to them, but does not know why (as another part of his Krialty blood).
  • He's shown to be good at cooking.
  • His Japanese voice actor would be Kenji Nojima.

Omg how does Leer not hate Auri? She's based off a lynx and uses a CS xD
akiVinz's avatar
akiVinzHobbyist General Artist
he's afraid of the animal itself and not Krilaty based on it :) I never mentioned him hating CS, he just doesn't use one, and he gets headaches when he's close to many of them :D
