Reo (aka Leo) is a Makai Priest and Makai Knight in the events of Flash Knight. He's a priest prodigy and nicknamed the second coming of Amon for his creation of the Gouryuu; he later became a priest of the senate and personal assistant to Kouga Saezima. It was only later that he is revealed to be the Flash Knight Lord, wielder of the Makai Armor Lord and Madō Ring Eruba.
Personality & CharacterEdit
Reo is the chosen successor of Flash Knight Lord. Trained to be a Makai Knight along with his elder twin brother, Reo always believed Sigma's greater combat talents would default him as the next Lord. With Sigma's influence, Reo found interest in magic and the two also studied magic as Sigma welcomes Reo as his future support priest. However, it was an unexpected turn when his father, Gōki Fudō, chose Reo instead. Reo was blinded by his love and loyalty for Sigma to not realize something Gōki saw, there was darkness in him; Gōki chose Reo as his successor because he has the heart of the protector. Unable to accept his role as a knight, Reo pursued a life of priesthood until a fateful encounter with Sigma once more
Sigma returned to Reo after both had become accomplished priests. Ambitious with his creation, Idea, Sigma teamed up with Priestess Mio (Sigma's girlfriend, but also Reo's love interest) to help bring his creation to life. However, when Mio discovered Sigma's dark experiments, she tried to stop him at the cost of her life. Holding her lifeless body, Reo kept Mio's brush and vowed to stop his brother; he chose to handle this matter privately as he feels responsible for Sigma.
With the success of his Gouryuu, Reo became a prominent priest of the senate and a personal support priest for Garo. However, in secret, Reo was discreetly tracking his brother. Because nobody knew the Red Mask was really Sigma, Reo got in trouble for Sigma's actions as everyone suspected Reo instead of Sigma. It wasn't until when Reo finally embraced being Lord and openly resisted Sigma that Reo exonerated himself. After accepting his knighthood and help destroying Idea, Reo found closure to Mio's death after she appeared before him in happiness for his efforts.
Skills & AbilitiesEdit
Path to Knighthood & Inheriting LordEdit
Since little, Reo and Sigma was harshly trained by their father, Gōki Fudō, to compete for the title of Flash Knight Lord. However, despite being twins, Sigma had always been clearly the better fighter and both brothers assumed that Sigma would become Lord and Reo would lose the title. However, Reo never felt embittered by it and fully supported his brother to become Lord. However, their interests would change after being exposed to magic.
Despite the harshness of their training, Sigma always loved his brother and introduced him to magic. Somewhere in between training, Sigma showed Reo how to do magic. Eventually, Reo believed he would be better to serve his brother as his support priest. And so Reo double-majored in magical arts along with his knight training. Upon the day Sigma would inherit his birthright, everything changed for the both of them.
Gōki realized that despite Sigma's talents, he had a dark nature about him that didn't suite him as Lord; he decided to make Reo his successor instead. However, both brothers were upset at the decision. Sigma was enraged that Gōki denied him his right to become a knight and even attacked his father in rage, to demand an answer. Reo was caught in the middle of all this as he insisted Sigma should be the successor instead of himself. After Sigma left, both Reo and Gōki clashed over this matter and Gōki explained Sigma didn't have the heart of a protector and his decision on making him Lord was final. Not long after, Gōki died, making Reo his surviving successor; both brothers would walk the path as priests.
