Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles issue 1

Leonardo is one of the main characters in the various incarnations of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. He serves as the leader of his brothers and is the one most devoted to his training and the ways of the ninja.

 History Edit

Regardless of the continuity, Leonardo retrains the same basic origins each time. He began life as a humble pet store turtle before one day winding up in the sewers of New York. After being exposed to a powerful mutagen, he and his brothers mutated to humanoid forms. Taken in by the ninja master Splinter, they began practicing the ways of ninjitsu to prepare themselves for the world above.

Due to his skill and devotion, Leonardo is the most accomplished fighter of his brothers. In many cases, it is ultimately he who takes down the turtle's arch-enemy, the Shredder, and undergoes the most advanced and unique ninja training.

Role in Rakenzarn Edit

Leonardo appears if the player takes the Knight's HQ route into Kandur during Chapter 9. He works as a member of the Green Leaf guild alongside other ninjas such as Naruto. He and Naruto are seen having been hired by Chris Redfield to help manage the situation in Kandur. After defeating Wild Dog, Leonardo will automatically join the party upon leaving the Knight's HQ.

As a support character, Leonardo can assist the party with a physical attack that can pierce defense and possibly ignore evasion points. If equipped to a leader character, such as Kyuu or Kite, the party will gain a pre-battle buff that slightly increases all stats for a while.
