Serge Leonhart is first encountered at the end of the Mandelro Coast where he helps the party escape from Luna and Paula. He reveals himself to be the navigator of the pirate group that had attempted to capture Adele.


Serge has a lighthearted personality and is often seen trying to lighten the mood in situations. He also nicknames a few characters after he joins the party officially and has no qualms about calling a character by there nickname even if they don't like it. He does have a serious side when he needs to such as when he was trying to get Rastan to open the sealed door or when he cheers up Cecille after she kills her brother. In several dialogues he is shown to have more serious conversations with Rastan and Leslie as they are more mature than the other party members. Notably Serge is an appreciator of women which is seen through many of the skits involving him throughout the game.

He holds an immense grudge towards Rastan for partly being at fault for causing his most trusted friend's death.


Serge was raised as Leon in Gula as an orphan and regarded all his fellow orphans equally as family.

When he turned fourteen, he became known for his swordsmanship and magic, quickly gaining the name 'Lightning Leon'. At some point in time, he met L'Arc's father, Rex, and Zamuel and formed the Lord Knights as a mercenary group that grew to be known as some of the most powerful individuals in Fulheim. Leon and the Lord Knights accepted Zamuel's request to take care of his granddaughter should anything happen to him. At a point years before the story, his sword arm was crippled in a fight against Ignacy. He places full blame on Rastan for this, and has been shown to still be angry with him years later.

Leon was forced to give up being a mercenary as a result of this, and went into hiding under the name of Serge, however he was still watching over Zamuel's granddaughter, like he was requested to. He infiltrated a band of thieves in order to better protect her, and later aids the party in escaping from Paula and Luna. Serge is later taken hostage by the Kopin's for vengeance, however L'Arc and the party aids him.

He stays with the party until the events of Anthrax unfold where he reveals that he is in league with Olquina and is charged with protecting Adele, so by association Serge decides to follow Alf.

He is next seen at the Ebur Ruins where he acts as a guest character in Rastan's party while searching for Maria, one of his childhood friends. After Maria's rescue he tells the party of the Starship hidden in Dragon Tower. He is then kept on watch by Alf's group due to him being so friendly towards L'Arc's group and is even interrogated by Leslie.

Serge is encountered again at Gula Church where he coaxes Rastan into trying to open a sealed door and aids the party as a guest throughout the course of the area. After these events unfold he joins up with L'Arc's party officialy and his true identity is revealed to be "Lightning Leon" former leader of the Lord Knights.

From this point on in the game Serge follows the party with no real significant story development in regards to his character other than L'Arc and him working out there issues with Rastan and later. He is also the last party member to be found in the Holy Land of Noire when the player must gather the party after being separated.

After Eesa's defeat, Serge continues living the way he wanted to.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

In his youth, Serge was an unrivaled swordsman and arguably one of the strongest people in Fulheim. After his crippling that rendered him never being able to wield a sword again, he took up magic as a substitute. Serge is incredibly skilled with magic, giving Paula and Luna pause when he attacked them. Notably, he retained his immense speed and dexterity, throwing knives faster then most can see, stopping even Weiss.

In game, Serge is notable for having well balanced stats. His magic is incredible and his starting orb is notable for being the first orb that has a combo element attached. His speed ensures that he will nearly always go first in an action, and his magic output is incredibly. This is boosted by his secret weapon, Carnwenan: "Daggers of Starlight". Carnwennan boasts the Secret Arm Force of 'Master Mage+', which makes every magical hit a critical. This allows him to brutally cut into bosses' hitpoints, and it easily makes him an end game staple.


  • As pointed out above he gives some characters nicknames, they are: Minimal Lady for Cecille due to her small size, Violent Femme for Leslie due to her time as his interrogator and smart beauty Carlisle for Dr. Carlisle before he met her due to his hopes of meeting a beautiful and intelligent woman.
  • Notably his personality bears a resemblence to Zelos Wilder from Tales of Symphonia albeit a somewhat toned down version. Tales of Symphonia is noted for having resemblances to this game.
  • Carnwennan is the name of King Arthur's dagger. It was attributed to having the ability to hide him in a cover of darkness. This bears similarities to Leon hiding after his crippling.
