|This article is about a/an Makai Knight in Garo: Honoo no Kokuin|
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 Lara 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 Lara 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.
Garo The Golden Knight
Leon inherited the Garo armor from his mother, as she was part of the Golden Knight bloodline from his maternal grandfather. In the Garo armor, Leon's eyes are red with yellow pupils. However, due to his revenge-driven mindset, the Garo Armor reflected Leon's rage in having twin red scarves attached to the back of the armor with gold rings on the end that serve to extend to grapple opponents or latch on to objects to propel Garo through the air. The Armor also had burning cracks that would release flames upon Leon becoming enraged as a negative side effect of the protective seal his mother placed on him. Once Leon learned to abandon his desire for revenge and become a protector, the armor resembled the live action TV version with red and gold eyes.
When Leon lost himself in the implanted visions of his mother's death by Mendosa, the Garo Armor assumes its Lost Soul Beast form with the ability to manifest a raging Madō Fire inferno that incinerated the town of Santa Bard within moments and endangered many innocent humans. It was only through Alfosno using the Gaia armor to pierce the weak point on Garo that the armor disengaged and was taken away from him by Alfonso.
In a desperate attempt to stop Mendosa, Leon used one of his father's Zoro Daggers and the Garoken together to summon both armors simultaneously. The resulting summon combined with Leon's unbreakable spirit and determination caused the armors to merge into a fused form with the abilities of both Zoro and Garo with flaming wings that granted Leon the power of flight.
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 Lara and failing to save her, Leon strived to become a better Makai Knight for the sake of protecting others.
