Main article: Leif
Leif is much older than he appears. He is not familiar with many of the newer changes to Bugaria, both politically and technologically.
Before Death[edit | edit source]
Before dying, Leif lived in the Ant Kingdom under the rule of Queen Elizant I. He lived with his father and his wife Muse, who he has described as being "loud, confident and outgoing”. As a part of a scouting team under the Queen, he fell into the depths of Snakemouth Den and was trapped for at least a full generation--the exact time is uncertain. This time resulted in his exposure to magical crystals which is what gave him his ice magic.
After Death[edit | edit source]
I'm not Leif exactly, but we're still Leif.
Leif died during his trip within Snakemouth Den. At some point before his death, a hidden Roach laboratory created an advanced colony of cordyceps fungi which they then discarded as a failure. One cordyceps survived by inhabiting Leif's body, inheriting his memories. "Leif" is indeed we, though in the end--as his friends are fast to point out and assure him--who or what he might have been doesn't change what they think of him or who he is now.
