== Garo The Golden Knight==
 
   
Leon Luis inherited the Garo armor from his mother, as she was part of the Golden Knight bloodline from her father and Leon's Grandfather. One striking difference of the armor from previously seen users aside from having red eyes with yellow pupils, is the red twin scarves attached to the back of the armor with gold rings on the end. These scarves can extend to grapple opponents or latch on to objects to propel Garo through the air.

Leon was born from his mother while she was being burned alive as one of the many Makai Priests and Makai Knights living in the Valiante Kingdom who have fallen victim to Medoza's revenge-driven genocide, cleverly masked as a witch hunt. Luckily, Leon was saved by the magic placed on him by his mother Anna before he was saved from the flames by his father [[Germán Luis]]. Though German managed to get Leon out of Valiante, the memory of his mother's death remained with Leon through his nightmares due to the residual spell his mother cast leaving a mark on his right arm that causes flames to appear whenever he is in emotional distress.
   
Through a contact with Zaruba, Leon will give up one entire day of his life every new moon to the Madou Ring to feed him in exchange for his guidance and power. This leaves Leon weakened and unconscious, unable to summon Garo for the entire time it takes place.

Leon spent the first years of his life training with only the thought of vengeance in his mind. Eventually, Leon is allowed to make the journey to Valiante with the intention to face his mother's killer at the capital city of Santa Bard. On the way, Leon acquires [[Zaruba]] who acts to control Leon's flames and keep him stable. However, meeting his cousin [[Alfonso San Valiante]] as they face their common enemy, Leon loses control as he becomes a [[Lost Soul Beast]] before being defeated and relieved of his armor.
   
During the battle with Mendoza, León loses himself in the implanted visions of his mother's death, becoming a Lost Soul Beast (心滅獣身 ''Shinmetsu Jūshin''<sup>?</sup>), which manifests a raging Madō Fire inferno, incinerating the town of Santa Bard within moments and endangering many innocent humans. After being taken down, his sword and title, as well as a now damaged Zaruba, are all confiscated from him by Alfonso, who deems León unworthy of being the Golden Knight. After attempting to commit suicide after losing his only purpose in life, León finds himself taken in by a farming family living somewhere downriver from Santa Bard and begins working as a farmhand. But then is now on the verge to do something after Alfonso but also himself failed to protect the family he lived with, who were killed by a horror.

Believing Medoza to have died, Leon believes that lost his purpose without the Garo title and attempted to commit suicide. However, he was found by a farm girl named Laura who brings him to her family's home where he would work as a farmhand. At first, Leon decided to remain among the common folk. But when unable to keep Laura and her family from being killed by the Horror Grand-Magus, Leon faced his inner demons and resolves to once more become Garo for the right reasons.

==Personality==
Leon acts stubborn, easily gets mad and angered, and is always with a scrowl as his expression. Leon is a serious individual who has personal demons. He seems to have a longing to know more about his mother, Anna, due to not having a mother figure growing up. The trauma of seeing her dying when he was born by burning at the stake is still firmly ingrained in his mind, which manifests as painful burn marks on the right side of his face and arm and as flames and burning cracks on the Garo armor. [[File:Leon's_markings.png|thumb|Leon's burn markings emerging during a nightmare about his mother burning.]]In rare cases, this trauma reacts with the [[Soul Metal]] of his armor and causes the Garo armor to go berserk, forcing his father to intervene. It isn't until he obtains Zaruba that he is able to fight at his full potential.

[[File:Leon's_markings.png|thumb|Leon's markings manifesting.]]
It was ultimately this trauma and his personal feelings that caused him to lose control of the armor and nearly destroy all of Santa Bard. Once the armor and title of Garo were confiscated from him as a result of this, no longer having the right to wear the armor or be a Makai Knight, Leon nearly gave up all hope and tried to commit suicide upon realizing he had no other reason to live for.
 
   
He appears to be resentful of his father German, as he sees him as a lecherous fool who didn't love Anna and who constantly walks out on him. He also will get into fights with him and beats him up for his womanizing. Despite this resentment, Leon does seem to have some level of love and respect for his father. As he sees that while he is a fool, German never lies and can be dependable when the situation calls for it.
+
Due to his origins and inner demons, having been born watching his mother die and reliving that moment in his dreams, Leon is a serious and short-tempered individual who is always has a scowling expression. Though he appears to resent Germán for being a lecher and often beats him up for his womanizing, Leon cares for his father.

Having suffered from emotional stress, it serves to activate the magic seal that Anna cast on her son's body before his death. But Anna's magic is a double edged sword as its influence effects Leon's mind whenever he dons the Garo Armor, causing the [[Soul Metal]] to violently react and have him berserk. Though Zaruba was used to control his emotions, the rage eventually overwhelms the ring as Leon nearly wiped out all of Santa Bard just to avenge his mother's death by Medoza's actions. This resulted with Leon relieved of the Garo title and everything associated with it. Leon attempted to commit suicide soon after as he believed he had no other reason to live for. But having met Laura and failing to save her, convince Leon to become a Makai Knight for the sake of protecting others.
