"It is just as the spies described."

This article has recently been converted to the new character-focused layout but it needs a lore enthusiast to help fill-out the sections. In addition, 'Relations trivia' and 'Lore trivia' have been moved here but need restructuring into article content - lore is no longer trivia.

If you're eager to help but would like to reference a completed character article: Aurelion Sol, Jinx, Mel, and Viego are excellent.

When Diana left with the Lunari, Leona was emotionally shattered as she could not bear Diana's betrayal, many Solari demanded her head due to this betrayal, but Leona adamantly refused to kill her friend as no matter what powers she has, she still loves her suggesting that Leona feels more than friendship towards Diana.

Powers and Abilities

  • Aspect Empowerment: Leona has been chosen as a Aspect's Host, empowering her with celestial magic correspondent with the Aspect's role. In Leona's case, she's been chosen by the Aspect of the Sun.

    • Solar Power: Leona can command the power of the Sun to her wishes. She can call fourth solar energy to create light, summon sunfire to burn her foes and create powerful barriers of solar energy. Her weapons, being connected to the Aspect, can by empowered by the energy of the Sun.

The Light Bringer

By Graham McNeill

The raiders attacked before dawn; fifty wolf-lean men in iron hauberks mantled with strange furs and bearing ash-dulled axes. Their steps were swift as they entered the settlement at the foot of the mountain. These were men who had fought as brothers for years, who lived in the heartbeat between life and death. A warrior in battered scale armor and bearing a heavy-bladed greatsword over his shoulder led them. Beneath his dragon-helm, his face was bearded and raw, burned by a lifetime of war-making under a harsher sun than this.

Halfway Between the Stars and Earth

By Katie Chironis

It was a perfectly good night for a cup of tea. Chilly, certainly, but clear—as crisp a night as frigid Mount Targon ever got, really. Soraka was expecting a visitor. The snow in the stone kettle had already begun to melt over the hearth at the center of her little yurt; as it grew warmer, the room was suffused with the smell of dried tea leaves and sparse mountain herbs.
