"Even if they seem like obstacles, we can exploit them for our own benefit." ― LeifLeif is one of the three protagonists in Bug Fables. He is the third and final member to join the party.
Appearance & Personality
Unlike most moths, his head, torso, limbs and abdomen are coloured cyan blue. He has navy blue wings with gold highlights that he uses as a cloak of sorts over his body, as well as a fluffy gold collar around his neck. Like most bugs, he has a pair of black antennae atop his head.
Leif presents himself as well-mannered and polite, speaking in a royal "We" instead of using "I". He is also known to be knowledgeable and intelligent, as he suggests several means of traversing Snakemouth Den. However, he is also quite blunt and often inconsiderate of the feelings of others, as exemplified in the demo when he suggests to Kina the possibility that her brother, Maki, left her to get some space from her.
Despite this bluntness, he is shown to be loyal to those he trusts, namely Team Snakemouth. His stoic facade is also known to have a single, gigantic weakness...
Due to strange circumstances surrounding his time in the magic-drenched Snakemouth Den, Leif is able to utilize ice magic.
In the field, Leif can freeze water to form paths and platforms as well as freeze enemies to bounce around and use to solve puzzles. He can also create a shield that protects the party from hazards, and the shield can first strike an enemy in the overworld when they make contact.
In battle, Leif acts as the party's mage. He is able to freeze enemies for a short period of time. Upon hitting a frozen enemy, it will deal extra damage. He is also able to increase the damage or defense to the party or decrease enemies' damage or defense. He owns the most move medals in the game.
