Ledo Offen (レド・オフェン) is a young man assigned by Prince Schneizel to serve under Suzaku's command. Contrary to Schnee, he judges people by their merits. Ledo is interested in Suzaku's past and believes that there was a reason why an Honorary Britannian like Suzaku became a Knight of the Round.

Appearance[]

Ledo is a young man with fair brown skin and red eyes. His dark hair is cut with a few shorter bangs in front, then a few bangs reaching to his chin, and the rest of his hair reaches past his shoulders. He usually wears a similar military uniform and cape as Schnee. The uniform consists of white pants and a light blue coat with the same golden emblem as the Knights of the Round have on the upper part of the left sleeve. He also wears the same black gloves and boots as the Rounds, along with a blue cape worn over one shoulder and held in place by a golden braid.

Personality[]

Ledo is said to have a hard time showing his emotions which leads to him always appearing calm. He is capable of being both cunning and perceptive, and he seems to value people by merits rather than race or status. He thinks it's better to do anything to survive rather than to die for honor. He prefers to strategize rather than rushing ahead, and is quite cynical. Ledo will do whatever the mission demands of him, be it kill innocents or spy on his superior officer, as long as it gets the mission finished.

However, despite the fact that he considers himself capable of betraying anyone for a mission, the thought of actually doing so bothers him to the point that he considers himself a street rat unworthy of love. Furthermore, to some extent he symphatises with the Eleven rebels he fights against and thinks that the reason they fight is out of desperation, like Ledo himself did as a child. He can even be very reckless when it comes to protecting the people he cares about.
