Leonardo is a Human Assassin-Delivery Man from the North American server. A month after the Catastrophe, he fled from the Big Apple due to the riots and lynching after the discovery of Real Food Preparation and a subsequent attempt to monopolize the secret. After hopping into a Fairy Ring, he found himself in China, where he was eventually found and rescued by Kanami's Party, which he joins.
His Overskill is Parallel Plot.
Leonardo's overall appearance was intended to resemble an anthropomorphic ninja turtle that wears a green mask, only covers his eyes, and has two katanas; though Kanami remarked that Leonardo's headgear had made him look more like a green Umibouzu, and then later a frog as Kanami had one time called him "Kero-nardo." Kanami was able to easily recognize what comic character Leonardo was trying to imitate and found it humorous.
Due to copyright laws, Leonardo's appearance was changed to look more like a frog's for Kanami, Go! East!.
Leonardo is apparently a huge fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and coincidentally was born in the same country and state of his favorite characters. He chose a certain sword wielding turtle because he thinks it looks cool. Born as a New Yorker, Leonardo has his sense of pride and believes that being a turtle ninja was to be an ally of justice. Like Akatsuki, Leonardo is apparently devoted to role-playing.
Prior to the CatastropheEdit
Leonardo has been playing Elder Tale for five years, with his usual home city as Big Apple. He was well known, although more because of his bizarre appearance than his actual skills.
After the Catastrophe, Leonardo stays in the Big Apple until the June Riots break out, causing him to first take refuge in the sewers before jumping through a Fairy Ring. He is subsequently stuck in Tekeli, a remote town on the Chinese server area, after accidentally triggering an event that summons hundreds of enemies. There he stayed, dying over and over again before Kanami, Elias Hackblade, and Coppelia arrive, en route to the Yamato server.
Go East! arcEdit
Drama CD: Kanami, Go! East!Edit
Taking place after the events of the Go East arc, Kanami's party continues on their journey towards Akihabara. Kanami stops the group to look at a sunset, much to Leonardo's annoyance. After some banter between himself, Elias, and Kanami, the party leader asks Coppelia where Japan was. Knowing that Kanami didn't actually understand Coppelia's sentence, Leonardo interjects that they were walking in the complete opposite direction of Akiba.
Kanami, realizing this, bemoans that such "trivial things" were always left to "Shiro-kun", much to Elias' and Leonardo's confusion. After describing who "Shiro-kun" was, Kanami wonders aloud how he and the other Debauchery Tea Party members were, and affirms to Elias that seeing them was one of the reasons why she was heading to Yamato. Annoyed, Leonardo comments that she had stated that her purpose of visiting Yamato was to find out the reason behind the Catastrophe, only to be told that visiting "Shiro-kun" and finding out the answer was one and the same.
Whenever Leonardo heaves a sigh of annoyance, Coppelia asks him if he needed healing. Eventually, Kanami gets bored of watching the sunset and tells her party to head east.
|Ninja Twin Flame: Phantasmal-class, flame-attribute twin swords with good attack power and speed. “Ninja Twin Flame” is inscribed on the blade. To acquire it, you have to lurk around and win 5 duels against Ninja Masters, so it took Leonardo a year to obtain.|
|Hidden Toad: A green camouflage suit with a frog motif. Increases movement speed in water and reduces the amount of Hate gained. Its performance isn’t bad and its defense is pretty good, but few people use it because of its distinct look.|
|Pizza Box: A collaboration with a pizza store called Little Ninja on the North American server, this is a magic bag with the appearance of a pizza box. It can’t hold much, but it was a rather popular item during Snowfell (the winter/Christmas event in Elder Tale).|
- Leonardo's "COWABUNGA" leap was, in-story, inspired by the 104th episode, "Jump, Froggers!", of his favorite show (which is a parallel-universe frog version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). The 104th episode of the original TMNT 1987 cartoon series was titled "Unidentified Flying Leonardo."
