Lieutenant Leon August is a character in Rooster Teeth's gen:LOCK. He is a Strider pilot and Vanguard squad leader, and is voiced by Gray G. Haddock. He is currently comatose after uploading into a Holon.
Leon is an adult man of average height and build with neck-length brown hair and lined dark blue eyes. He has a five o'clock shadow beard.
Leon acts as a counter to Jodie Brennan's jockish and sometimes immature personality, retaining a calm and wry demeanor in both downtime and combat situations, though he has no problem relaxing occasionally and joking about with his friends. While on the field, Leon displays a no-nonsense attitude and has no time for bickering between his allies, but nonetheless does his best to watch out for them.
Leon has also been shown to be extremely willing to push himself for the sake of victory and aiding his allies, willingly uploading into Rob Sinclair's Holon despite being fully aware of the risks that his older age posed.
Leon is a seasoned pilot, shown to possess considerable skill in piloting his Strider, surviving multiple battles thanks to his skill.
Upon uploading into Sinclair's Holon, Leon is able to pilot it with a reasonable amount of skill, evidently grasping its control mechanisms relatively quickly.
Leon is one of the few people in the world capable of undergoing gen:LOCK. By having his mind digitized, he can be placed inside a Holon and operate it as if it were his own body, giving him a much greater degree of control than traditional pilots.
However, due his older age, the process of uploading and downloading is much riskier than it is for someone of Julian Chase's age.
