Annoying bird! I am the great Leon!
—Leon Powalski to Falco Lombardi

Leon Powalski is a member of Star Wolf, and is the only member other than Wolf O'Donnell himself that has been on the team since its creation. Very little is known about who Leon was before his perpetual placement on the Star Wolf Space Pirate Team, other than his motivation for inflicting pain and suffering for money, and his also equally perpetual rivalry against Falco Lombardi.

BiographyEdit

Much of Leon's past is unknown, but he was known to be motivated by pain and suffering, as well as money, and most likely had some past rivalry with Falco Lombardi, whom he mainly concentrates on during dogfights. When Star Wolf was initially formed as a group of elite evil pilots to defend the key routes to Venom after being funded and equipped by Andross, Wolf teamed up with Pigma Dengar, Andross's nephew, Andrew Oikonny, and found the mysterious Leon Powalski in a rough bar on Venom, where Leon was hired because of his delight in torturing opponents before destroying them.

FichinaEdit

Leon, upon Star Wolf's arrival shortly after Fox discovered that a fleet of Androssians set up a bomb inside the Fichina Outpost, revealed that Andross sent them to kill the Star Fox team. Leon focused on fighting Falco, and expresses irritation toward the bird, declaring that he is the "Great Leon". When he was shot down, he was in disbelief that such a thing could happen to him.

BolseEdit

Star Wolf was ordered to stop Star Fox from destroying Bolse. Leon, upon arrival, reveals his love of torture, as he deeply considers torturing the Star Fox team for a while. He continued to focus on Falco until he was shot down.

VenomEdit

In the Cornerian invasion of Venom, Star Wolf was ordered to protect Andross's palace. Leon suffered damage to his right eye, and has to wear a bionic eye until it heals. Upon arrival, he wonders whether the Star Fox team will be able to handle their new Wolfen IIs. He expressed shock at Fox's skill when he was shot down.

Like the others, Leon survived, and apparently recovered from all his injuries.

Leon reappeared during the Aparoid Invasion, serving the same role he had in the Lylat Wars and likewise was the only original Star Wolf member on Star Wolf besides Wolf himself. His rivalry with Falco seems to have grown more tense, as the two make snide remarks about each other (even while Star Wolf is helping Star Fox defeat the Aparoids). It is revealed that Leon specializes in killing, as he is called an "assassin" in the instruction booklet and a "killer" in official artwork. Leon also appears to show sympathy for other reptilian or amphibious creatures (like Slippy). Panther first met the Star Fox team in battle, following the conclusion of their mission to take control of the Sargasso Space Zone hideout. Despite his hostile attitude towards the rest of the Star Fox team, he was overwhelmed by Krystal's beauty, causing him to reveal that the com record indicated that Pigma has fled to Fichina.

Leon disappeared with the rest of his team for some time until the Aparoid devastation of Corneria. His rivalry with Falco was still persistent due to the bickering between them nearly leading to a scrap between them.

Leon and Star Wolf reappeared after Corneria City's annihilation to continue supporting the Cornerians in their common struggle against the Aparoids, by assisting shooting down Aparoid missiles that threatened to destroy the Orbital Gate whilst the Self-destruct program was being built by Corneria's federation scientists. Leon managed to take care of missiles with ease but expressed boredom due to how easy it was for him.

Once the Star Fox team made it past the Homeworld's defensive shield at the cost of Peppy, ROB and the Great Fox, the Wolfen trio arrived yet again to aid the Arwings through the tunnels to reach the Aparoid Queen. Leon still could not resist the delight in tormenting Falco and flew close enough to irritate him as an act of trying to find any weak points. Leon and his team vanished after luring the powerful Silver Aparoids away from the Arwings, leaving their fates ambiguous with the destruction of the Aparoid Homeworld, although Fox remained positive that Wolf's team would live to fight another day.

Having survived the destruction of the Aparoid Homeworld, Leon was still a loyal member to Star Wolf, and piloted his own ship, the Rainbow Delta, customised from a Wolfen. Leon, along with the other members had returned to taking more evil turns, as they were still wanted across the galaxy for illegal activities.

Also, despite being wanted for piracy, Leon apparently grew tired of being hated and feared, hoping to clear his negative image and earning recognition snd friendship for defeating the Anglars.

TriviaEdit
