Pirate Lion aka “White Leo”
Weapon: White Beam
Bio: Pirate Lion is the leader of the Fire Clan and the most powerful of all Battle Beasts. Growing up in the Tartanga Province of Planet Beast, Pirate Lion exhibited an uncanny skill with the blade at a very young age. Against the wishes his father, a grizzled mill worker named Pete, Pirate Lion began combat training under the tutelage of former Major General Renghi Ma. The General was forced into retirement for engaging in controversial interrogation practices, and his skill with a whip and bamboo shoot would not be lost on Pirate Lion.
For seven arduous years, the young feline toiled and trained with the Major General, digesting a new battle tactic per annum. Pirate Lion learned the Way of the Fist and the Way of the Sword. The Way of the Monk and the Way of the Drunk. And when his time with Renghi Ma had ended, he immediately enrolled in the Imperial Army of the Blaze, also known as the Fire Clan.
It was during the War of Year 3.0 that Pirate Lion was beset by the greatest trial of his life. While leading the Fire Clan to victory at the Battle of Blood Mountain, Pirate Lion was struck by a laser blast in his right eye. The wound caused irreparable damage to his tapetum lucidum, removing 50 percent of his ability to see in the dark. To this day, he wears a small bandage under his eye to signify the loss.
After the war, Pirate Lion was elected serve on the Tartanga Counsel of Governors. He married his childhood sweetheart Sly Fox and the two sired four little ones. Most days, you can find Pirate Lion at the local vet hall, reminiscing about the war with his mentor and friend Major General Renghi Ma.
Pete the mill worker mysteriously disappeared after a run in with the Water Clan at Kitt Falls.
