Leinas has fair skin, green eyes and long blond hair with bangs covering the right side of her face and a beauty mark beneath her lower lip on the left side. She has a brown string tied around her head, and tied her hair back in a loose ponytail tied a few inches above the end. The right side of her face is described to be in a disgusting state due to a curse which causes it to secrete pus.
Leinas can be seen as formal but aloof, direct and blunt. She’s also self-serving because of her curse and the circumstances after, she made it her life’s goal in finding a cure and do anything to achieve it as she made it clear to Jircniv she only serve him because it is most profitable for her to do so, and will immediately abandon her position if someone else can provide her with what she wants.
Leinas was born to a noble family of the Baharuth Empire, where she earned a measure of fame and renown by defeating monsters and beasts around her family's domain. However, one day, she was cursed after she slew a monster, which disfigured the right side of her face. Knowing her appearance would bring shame upon them, her fiancé abandoned her and her family disowned her.
Afterwards, her only goal in life became to get revenge on those who wronged her and to find a way to cure her so-called "incurable" curse. Leinas's abilities and reputation eventually caught Emperor Jircniv's attention, who allowed her to have her revenge in exchange for joining his personal guard. She use her new position to request the Court Wizard, Fluder Paradyne to rid of her curse, but even his efforts fail to bring results.

In the Imperial Capital, Leinas stayed behind to guard the Imperial Palace after Emperor Jircniv and two of her fellow imperial knights depart to the Colosseum. Thinking about Leinas's actions until now, Jircniv thinks that she is possibly planning to migrate to the Sorcerer Kingdom after raising her value in the eyes of the Sorcerer King.
Officially, Leinas stays in the Empire in order to repay the kindness Emperor Jircniv showed her. While the Emperor wanted to take the words Leinas says at face value, that was impossible for Jircniv as he doubts her loyalty. In fact, he knows that she is the least loyal of all the Four Imperial Knights and would likely betray him for the Sorcerer Kingdom.

After the Catastrophe and the formation of the Tripartite Alliance, Leinas volunteered to be stationed at E-Rantel that would serve as the capital of the military alliance. Though her colleagues suspected that Leinas wanted the post as E-Rantel was the safest place to be in the new dark age. In truth Leinas wanted to exploit the new information network that was being established within the three nations. It was her hope that a solution could be found to remove the curse on her face. When Leinas arrived at E-Rantel with Nimble, a young boy threw a stone at her as his father was killed by the Empire in the Annual Wars. Rather than punish the boy, Leinas encouraged the boy to stoke his revenge and wait patient before sending him off. The female knight then worked with Nimble to establish the Empire's garrison at the fortress city and win the trust of the people. When the forces of the Sunlight Scripture came to assist, she met with the commander, Ian Als Heim who impressed her with his strength. After Ian led some of the members of the Scripture to Carne Village to save it from Chaos Beasts and possibly locate a Crack, Leinas volunteered to bring reinforcements, in part to study the Crack for herself she believes that the phenomena may be useful in removing her curse which even Fluder Paradyne was unable to remove.
Leinas would save Ian and his men in the depths of the Great Forest of Tob from the Chaos Beasts coming from the Crack. The knights would be introduced to the protagonist and his allies from Nazarick. During her time traveling to the Crack, she witnessed the protagonists' ability, greatly surprising her. After the mission was completed, Leinas picked up a few terms from the unknown faction such as the "Supreme One" which interested her. She and Ian would guide the protagonist and the remaining members of his party to E-Rantel. Once back in E-Rantel, Leinas reported back to her camp to inform Nimble of the protagonist.
Some time after the protagonist became an adventurer, Leinas would meet the undercover Nazarick agent again at Vadis Free City where the former assisted her and Nimble in escorting a caravan of supplies back to E-Rantel. At the time of the summit meeting from the Tripartite Alliance, Leinas was stationed outside the city with Nigun Grid Luin and Ian to establish a defensive perimeter around the city. Their lines were attacked by a horde of Chaos Beast, and were pushed back. Nigun led a retreat of the priests and knights, while Ian and Leinas stayed behind to by the injured some time. The two were nearly killed by the alpha of the horde if it were not for the protagonist and his comrades.
Leinas was present on the battlefield when a second horde of Chaos Beasts from the Northern Cave marched towards the city. Fighting with her peers she and the rest of the united forces of the Alliance succeeded in defeating the horde. However the horde was just a vanguard and a another one three times the sixth was approaching. The knight witnessed her emperor make a deal with Jaldabaoth to have his demons slaughter the Chaos Beasts. Once the deed was done, the demon demanded Jircniv's life as payment which caused her and the other Four Imperial Knights to attack him and defend the emperor. Aside from Nazami Enec, who was killed, she and the remaining knights were defeated and rendered unconscious by the Demon Emperor.
Weeks later, the protagonist arranged Leinas to unknowingly go on a date with an acquaintance of his. She was only told that the person was a friend of the protagonist and wished for her to show him around E-Rantel. During their time, Leinas unexpectedly received a complement of her bangs hiding the right side of her face. However before they could get to know each other more, Leinas was knocked out by a phenomena that encompassed the entire city. When the Sunlight Scripture returned to E-Rantel, they found her and the inhabitants to be unconscious. She was quickly attended by Ian who found her collapsed on he street.
Leinas having survived the confrontation with the Demon Emperor, experienced a blow to her pride and self-worth as did her fellow knights. It was only worse when Nazami could not be revived even with the aid of Lakyus Alvein Dale Aindra's magic as the knight's body was too badly damaged. Upon returning to the imperial capital, rumors began to go abound about their failure in losing to the Demon Emperor. Though the worst of these rumors were directed at the emperor and how he was broken by the demon and left a shell of his former self. When Jircniv refrained from any action to correct these misconceptions, Leinas and her fellow Imperial Knights approached the listless emperor during a briefing on Zero's exploits. The trio urged Jircniv to come to his senses not just to reclaim his dignity but also theirs. To his amazement she learns that Jircniv had not resigned himself to the insults but had been sacrificing his reputation to lure out the Anti-Jircniv faction. Leinas was given orders to head out with the Imperial Knights to the Katze Plains where Zero, who was actually an undercover agent for the emperor, would lead the rebels directly to them and be arrested. Once all the conspirators were collected, Nimble informed Zero that the worker would be rewarded a place among the Four Imperial Knights after he defeated one of them. Though a time could not be scheduled due to the prisoner taking priority, Nimble told the former criminal to be ready for that duel. After he and his knights gave their report to the emperor they were dismissed. Given a moment to talk among themselves Leinas expressed her dislike of the idea for Zero to be one of the Four Imperial Knights.
