Powers and Abilities

Leona’s fighting style is broadly similar to Heidern’s and Ralf Jones’. Many of her moves are references to classic Japanese genre media, such as Kamen Rider.

Leona channels life force into a form of energy that shears through matter. She can employ this to enhance her blows or as a projectile.


Her old uniform looked kind of like a safari outfit with short shorts. Her new uniform is an athletic bra with army pants. She of course always keeps her boots and black leather gloves as well as her weaponry.

Leona could be inserted as is. There isn’t much going on in Brazil and the Orochi legend could just be another mystical threat.
