Appearance[edit | edit source]
Leinas has blond hair that looks like cloth and covers the right side of her face. The right side of her face is described to be in a disgusting state due to a curse which causes it to secrete pus.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Leinas prioritizes her own life above all else, it is said that she is the least loyal among the Four Imperial Knights. Leinas works for Jircniv only 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.
Due to her disfigured face, she is shown to be envious of other beautiful women. This was shown when she clicked her tongue whenever the men gave a compliment for the Pleiades beauty which was enticing them.
Background[edit | edit source]
Leinas was once part of a noble family of the Baharuth Empire who earned fame for herself by defeating monsters 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 family cut all ties with her. On top of that, her fiance abandoned her as well.
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 eventually caught Emperor Jircniv's attention, who allowed her to have her revenge in exchange for joining his personal guard. However, Leinas made it clear to the Emperor that she will prioritize her own safety over his.

The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc
Leinas was part of the envoy that escorted Jircniv to meet with Ainz Ooal Gown in order to make restitution for the invasion force by the worker groups. Leinas became paralyzed in fear and horror when she witnessed the Death Knights emerging from the fortress.
While meeting with Ainz, she was planning to run away from the envoy to save her own skin. However, the reason why she hadn't done so right away was due to the thought that the Death Knights might have preferred going after those who ran away instead.
Afterwards, she feasted with the rest of the envoy on the banquet that was prepared by several Death Knights and Pleiades. All the while, she was clicking her tongue in envy for the battle maids' beauty which was enticing the rest of the men present.
The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc
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.

Mass for the Dead Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc
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 sixe 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 is shown to be quite athletic, as she managed to perform a leap from her horse to the Emperor's carriage while wearing plate armor, with both horses moving at a full gallop. The Emperor admitted himself that the only ones who could compare in her swordsmanship would be the two remaining Four Knights.
Job Classes[edit | edit source]
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Though Leinas is one of the Four Imperial Knights and Jircniv's private guard, she is willing to abandon the Emperor if she ever feels that her life is at risk. Thus, Leinas is considered to be the one with the least loyalty among the Four Imperial Knights. In order to avoid leaking any information to Leinas which she could offer to the Sorcerer Kingdom as a gift, Jircniv had decided to keep a distance from her.
It's revealed that Nimble had no romantic feelings for her, mostly due to his apprehension towards women but also seeing her as a colleauge and not a member of the opposite sex.
