Ledas is featured in Ledas: A Saiyan's Story, a collection of stories ranging from long novels, shorter novellas, short stories, to one-shots. Ledas is also a playable character in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast DLC.
Ledas is KidVegeta's primary roleplay character.
Ledas is a Saiyan. In the first saga, he is only four years old. Understandably, he is very short. He is about half a head shorter than Prince Vegeta, who is five, himself. Ledas' hair is tall (though not as much as Vegeta's), spiky and wild. It curves over, in two points, over his right ear. In the back, it also goes down, partially, to the base of his neck, and he has several strands sticking out, sideways, down there. Ledas is also decently skinny. His muscles and physique are still developing at this time, which helps explain his rapid power level growth. He has large, round eyes, which are a dark grey color, almost black, like his father's are. A notable feature of Ledas is his lack of using the customary Saiyan tail belt; instead he lets his tail hang free-form at nearly all times.
By the time Ledas is 12 years old, he looks only slightly different than he did as a younger Saiyan. His eyes are sharper, and his cheeks are thinner. As well, his bangs are less pronounced. Aside from that, he looks generally the same as he does in the first saga. Being only 4'5", he is quite short for his age. Ledas is also ambidextrous. He fires his attacks with either hand, not favoring his right or left, and in the Planet Earth Saga in school, Ledas writes with both hands.
In the Prince Vegeta Saga, Ledas wears the the standard armor of the
Ledas also possesses a ceremonial armor set, which is rarely used. It consists of a black/gold/silver lined under-suit with a gold and red rigid-set armor piece, including the side guards and crotch guard. This set includes black boots and gold and red wrist and ankle supports. Because this armor is non-stretch, it is a bit big on Ledas when he wears it. Of course, he is obligated to wear his scouter with this.
Starting in the Lauto Saga, Ledas is refitted with Cooler-standard armor (which does not carry a should pauldron over the right side). This armor set includes the chest piece and thigh guards; the colors are black with a green shoulder. During the saga, Ledas stops wearing a scouter due to learning how to sense ki. He also is given the left wrist guard of Guva late in the next saga and wears it at all times thereafter. The wrist guard is purple and ornate; it had a spike on the lower side that could be used to slam into people. However, Ledas still wears fingerless gloves with this armor set.
Upon arriving on Earth, Ledas abandons all of his armor. He is given normal Earth clothing from Mrs. Fanshi , which usually consists of a dark maroon hoodie and jeans. He wears a plain white undershirt and socks underneath. Other times, he wears black shorts, a white shirt, and a brown hoodie. At least on one occasion, Ledas is seen wearing a black hoodie and white shorts as well. Ledas usually wears socks constantly, because his toes often get cold (and wet). He wears these clothes for the rest of the series, and when fighting, Ledas only puts on his fingerless gloves and Guva's wrist guard, never going back to his full, old armor.
Ledas' primary aura is cyan. While he is charging up, the aura will get rather large, around twice as tall as his body, and will completely engulf Ledas. Additionally, flecks of white will intermingle with the cyan color of his aura while the boy is charging up energy. When he is not charging up energy, however, Ledas' aura looks like short, wild flames leaping off his body, and it is uniformly cyan. Plasma sparks can be see in this aura after Ledas unlocks his Super Saiyan 2 form. Of note is that Ledas usually keeps this aura even when in Super Saiyan forms, except when mentioned below.
Another aura that Ledas uses is a black one. This aura is not a conscious aura of his; it is only visible when he's near The Benefactor (after accidentally absorbing some of the alien's energy). While he is near The Benefactor, the energy that Ledas had absorbed wants to return to The Benefactor, and as such, it forces Ledas' energy colors to turn black, which is the color of The Benefactor's aura. While charging up, this aura looks like a collection of needles poking up in all directions. It is completely black except for a grey/white area just around Ledas' visage, allowing him to be viewed while charging up. When not charging up this aura, Ledas' body is covered in a shallow coat of black energy that moves about his body constantly like flowing water.
A third aura that Ledas uses is seen only in his Super Saiyan 3 form (which he reaches many years after the end of Dragon Ball Z in Other World). This aura is gold with flecks of white while he is charging it up, and it looks like a standard aura in that it covers his entire body and juts out from all sides with thin spikes of energy. When he is not charging up, the aura around his body is a lighter shade of yellow and hangs around his body like a mixture between a cloud and rain. This aura always has plasma sparks in it.
Ledas' personality when he is 4 years old is light, innocent, and carefree; as well, he can be quite brutal and unmerciful. From the time he is able to fly, Ledas is trained to fight and kill without mercy. He does not hold any value to life, except to those whom he is friends with. Unlike Prince Vegeta, Ledas can be very childish even in this; notably, he views his missions to clear planets and kill billions of aliens as just a game. Ledas also sees Vegeta as an older brother and role model. Ledas feeds off of Vegeta's arrogance and can be somewhat arrogant himself, especially about his rank as Super Elite. He is humbled more than a few times because of this, and his arrogance slowly gives way to more of a quiet confidence in himself. Ledas holds a grudge against his father for cutting off his tail, and he becomes distant and combative towards Layeeck for much of the first saga because of it. Additionally, Ledas does not like to show off. This comes from his father's own request for Ledas to conceal his power. Ledas has a hard time demonstrating his power for others afterwards, as he finds it both awkward and humiliating, even when he should feel perfectly confident in his own powers
Ledas' personality evolves when he arrives on Guva's outpost. Mentally, he is broken and becomes utterly withdrawn after he learns of the fate of his race. Having no friends and with practically everyone trying to kill him, Ledas is forced to become much stronger than he thought possible; this causes an incredible physical and mental strain on his body, almost beyond what he can handle. He uses Vegeta as a role model still and often asks himself what Vegeta would do in similar situations. This motivates Ledas quite a bit. In general, Ledas matures quite a bit during his time on Planet Cooler 92, especially since the inhabitants of the outpost do not treat him as someone who is special.
Also, during his stay with Guva's men, Ledas' begins to appreciate life more. He is disturbed by the poor treatment of the Planet's native species. He notes how they are little more than slaves, just like he is. When Ledas acquires some Saibamen, he becomes overjoyed and names them. Thereafter, he treats them like his pets, and they treat him like a master. They are the only friends that Ledas has until he gets to Earth, and they help alleviate some of his angst.
Ledas sees Payar kill a few natives, and he finally loses his patience. Ledas then ascends to Super Saiyan because he is fed up with people being abused by the Planet Trade Organization, including himself and the natives. This is a striking evolution of character, as only a few dozen chapters before, a much younger Ledas was having fun with decimating entire populations of aliens in the name of the Planet Trade Organization.
Upon reaching Earth, Ledas' personality becomes slightly more carefree again, as he is no longer under authoritarian rule. Ledas is too embarrassed to confront Vegeta at this time, as he sensed that Vegeta was much stronger than him. This was just another, final example that Ledas' mental state stayed just as young as his body did, in The Forgotten. On Earth, he kills several humans, though mostly because they are threats to him. Otherwise, he tends not to kill just for fun. He longs for attachment with other humans, as witnessed by him trying to make friends with several humans, including Ryori, Yajirobe, and Korin.
Ledas suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder after the Stomping Grounds Saga, as evident by his waking hallucinations of his father and The Benefactor. While The Benefactor's visions may have been a result of Ledas absorbing energy from the alien, they ware certainly exacerbated by his shell-shocked mental state. He sometimes has angry outbursts thereafter because the visions he is seeing are affecting his daily life and his ability to focus.
Ledas will attempt to kill those who are his enemies. He does not have any mercy in him. He prefers to let his fists speak for him, and detests those who just endlessly taunt and blabber on about themselves. While he does hurl insults at his enemies, they are not very frequent, and usually only come after Ledas has landed a critical blow. When Ledas is truly in fury, he will speak slowly and quietly instead of screaming. When he screams and whatnot, he is usually scared or in pain.
Ledas is a happy drunk. When he is inebriated, he will tell everyone around how much he loves them. Ledas enjoys adventure, and he can never sit still for very long. He likes to visit other planets, even after arriving on Earth. While he wants to be as strong as Vegeta, Ledas has no desire to become the strongest person in history; he just wants to be on par with his friend. However, he does want to be remembered for his actions in life, and he hopes that Saiyan culture will remember as one of their greatest warriors. Saiyan culture has dictated to Ledas how a Saiyan should act, and as such, he tries not to run from fights and remain courageous in battle; he is usually able to do this, but sometimes, if he is losing very badly, he will abandon his morals to save his life.
Ledas does not consider himself a hero or a good person, and he is fine with that. He does not take well to slights against his family's honor or reputation, either. He does not stand for being called a coward. Ledas believes firmly that a Saiyan's identity resides in their tail. He is shocked and angered when he learns that numerous Z Fighters who are Saiyans had their tails cut off and are proud about it.
This section is only relevant to the Japanese translation of The Forgotten. In it, Ledas primarily uses four personal pronouns to describe himself, and each one shows off aspects of his personality. They are as follows:
- 僕 (ぼく) - Boku is Ledas' primary personal pronoun. He uses when he is in the presence of friends, such as Vegeta, Ryori, and Yajirobe. He uses this pronoun in every saga of The Forgotten, as he never grows beyond the age of 12. It is basically a boyish and slightly familiar way to refer to oneself.
- 私 (わたくし) - Ledas uses watakushi infrequently. As it is a very polite way to refer to oneself, he primarily uses it when in the presence of people who are superior to him in status, such as Frieza, King Vegeta, Guva, and Korin. Ledas uses this pronoun with Banas for the first few chapters they are together, but he quickly drops it for a less formal pronoun as he is integrated into The Plantains. Outside of addressing his superiors, Ledas also used this to refer to himself when he first met Vegeta. Like with his interactions with Banas, Ledas slowly drops this personal pronoun for a more casual one when talking with the Prince.
- 己 (おれ) - Ledas primarily uses ore when fighting other individuals. As the personal pronoun has a rough, tough connotation to it, Ledas will only use it when trying to appear tough. Fights, confrontations, and arguments are generally where he uses this one. Ledas uses this particular kanji for ore (己) because, as the Saiyan boy has quite a bit of dialogue in The Forgotten, it is simply quicker to draw 己 than the other kanji for the word.
- 拙者 (せっしゃ) - Sessha is an archaic personal pronoun that samurai used long ago. Yajirobe uses it in The Forgotten, and Ledas uses it a few times as well. He uses it in Verlate's prison when he is wearing Yajirobe's clothes. He also uses it when he wants to conceal his identity a few other times. This is by far Ledas' least used personal pronoun, as he uses it less than 4 times throughout The Forgotten.
Near the end of the last chapter of this story, during a montage scene, Cyleria and Layeeck were shown holding their newborn baby boy, Ledas.
Ledas was born into the Saiyan Super Elite in the 733 age, making him 4 years old at the time of Planet Vegeta's destruction. His father was the Saiyan Layeeck, a trusted soldier and friend to King Vegeta. Ledas, due to his father's position and his own raw power, was given the chance to train with the Saiyan prince, Vegeta. At first, Vegeta did not want to train with someone so weak. But, through time, Vegeta grew more accepting of Ledas and by the end of Prince Vegeta Saga, the two were good friends. Eventually the two children started going on missions for Frieza, and they gained his favor because they were so powerful and good at clearing planets for him. It was during this time that they were introduced to one of Frieza's soldiers, The Benefactor.
On their last mission together, Ledas and Vegeta were split apart because Ledas' space pod malfunctioned. He was forced to stay on Planet Vegeta to get it repaired as Vegeta went to the planet they were supposed to clear for Frieza. During Ledas' wait, the Genocide of the Saiyans began. By the time his pod had been fixed, Frieza was preparing to destroy the planet. When Ledas took off, Frieza launched his planet-destroying attack at the Saiyan homeworld. The shock wave that followed the planet's explosion knocked Ledas unconscious and sent him off course. Of course, Prince Vegeta feared that his friend had died with the rest of the Saiyans because of this. Frieza had not realized he had almost killed Ledas when he destroyed the planet, as he had assumed the boy was off-planet on his mission. Frieza had been preparing to let them both live, since the two had impressed him so much. Even with Ledas' assumed death, Frieza allowed Vegeta to stay alive and gave him a position on his ship.
Ledas was separated from Vegeta after their planet's destruction, and his path instead led away from te prince's. Ledas eventually crash-landed on Planet Cooler 92, which was a military outpost owned by Frieza's brother, Cooler. For many years, Ledas was slave on the planet, living under the command of Governor Guva. His power level rose drastically during this time, from the many physical strains and powerful opponents Ledas faced. Ledas also learned how to sense ki while staying on the planet.
Importantly, he was involved in several missions against Planet Trade Organization rebels. During those operations, Ledas came into possession of seven Saibamen, which he kept throughout the rest of his life. He became aware that though most of his race, including his parents, were dead, Vegeta was still alive. This motivated Ledas to try and break free of his slavery to Cooler's soldiers.
Eventually, Ledas was involved in a strange mission with the rest of Planet Cooler 92's elite forces. During the mission, he found the exiled Supreme Kai, Lauto, and accidentally absorbed a large ball of power - incidentally, this ball of energy contained much of Lauto's and The Benefactor's energy (see their own history pages to see why they were on that planet and their energies was being merged). After Ledas absorbed it, he stopped aging. He was twelve years old as of absorbing the energy. So, for the rest of Ledas' life, his physical appearance never changed from that day. Additionally, after absorbing the energy, Ledas was able to unlock a Semi-Super Saiyan form, which was a transformation which gave him green eyes and white hair. Because Ledas hadn't achieved an emotional release to unlock Super Saiyan 1 (though he had acquired a big enough power boost to do so), he wasn't able to use the regular Super Saiyan form at the time. He couldn't control the Semi-Super Saiyan form either. Whenever he was in the form, his body was filled with excruciating pain, and he often bled from his orifices.
After returning from the mission, Ledas and the others were questioned about what happened, but Ledas didn't reveal anything. The other soldiers had their suspicions about him, but none of these were provable. Several days later, Ledas' captain, Banas, snuck up to Ledas and knocked the boy out. He did this because he wanted to frame Ledas as a Planet Trade Organization rebel to get potential suspicion off of his own back. The saga ended with Banas taking Ledas to Cooler's Capitol Planet to stand trial.
Ledas was taken to the Stomping Grounds by Banas to stand trial for being a rebel. Obviously, Ledas was not a rebel, and this was just a charade to get suspicion off of Banas' own back. When Ledas was standing trial, he decided to make a run for it, escaping before Cooler himself could interrogate him. Ledas then searched The Stomping Grounds for a ship to escape on. While doing so, he ran into Captain Mullpy, Private Grif, and their army and briefly engaged all of them in battle. While Ledas prevailed, the time it took for him to destroy the group allowed for Cooler to find him. The tyrant then battled with Ledas (though, as he stated himself, he was barely powered up) and nearly killed the boy. Ledas only escaped by lowering his power level to almost zero, making it look like he had died. As Ledas then tried to crawl away and escape, Grif appeared again and put the boy into stasis. He then hurled a couple of energy blasts at Ledas. After thinking he had killed the boy, Grif left. He did not truly kill Ledas, and instead, the boy stayed in stasis for the rest of Grif's life. Grif died 21 years later during a training exercise. When he died, the stasis was ended and Ledas woke up.
Ledas tried to get off the planet again (and he was not aware of how long he had been in stasis, either), only to run into the full force of Cooler's elite legions. Facing off against 12,000 elite soldiers, Captain Konatsu, Captain Anango, Nepar, Sika, and Sarpack, Ledas eventually eliminated everyone on the planet, save for one. The last one was Cooler Supreme General, Digranite. At first, Ledas was unable to best him. Cooler, who was on a nearby planet telling his governor's about his brother's recent death on Earth, learned about Ledas killing everyone on the planet and became enraged. He prepared to destroy the planet, and he sent a governor, Guva, to go and rescue Digranite before he did so. When Guva reached the planet, he realized who the Saiyan was, and instead chose to help Ledas fight the General. With their combined strengths and Ledas' Semi-Super Saiyan form now working better, they were able to kill the General and escape the planet before Cooler destroyed it. As well, Guva hid Ledas in his ship, so Cooler never knew that Guva had rescued the Saiyan boy.
Guva then returned Ledas to Planet Cooler 92. He promised that he would tell Ledas where Vegeta was if the boy would kill Banas for him, as the two had become rather hostile in the past 21 years. Ledas agreed at once. Before he could challenge Banas, however, Ledas ascended to Super Saiyan 1. This was because he finally had his emotional release after watching some of the soldiers abusing some other slaves (and of course, Ledas was nothing but a slave himself). Vowing to not let himself be a slave to anyone ever again, Ledas achieved the legendary transformation. Right after, he quickly killed all of The Plantains and also appeared to have killed Banas (though, as is shown in Guva's own history, this was not actually the case). After doing this, Guva finally told Ledas that Vegeta was on Earth. The Saiyan boy then left for the planet as soon as he could.
After a few years of desperate searching, Ledas reached Planet Earth. As soon as he landed, he became acquainted with Mrs. Fanshi, who offered to adopt him. She then put him into school, where he met some other humans, such as Ryori, Shoekki, Miki, and Mr. Kyokatoshi. Ledas also stole a gravity training unit from Dr. Brief and fought Vegeta while concealing his identity. Ledas did not reveal who he was to Vegeta at the time because he had just stolen something from Vegeta's wife's father and because he felt embarrassed that his power level was so much lower than Vegeta's. He also fought Piccolo later after destroying a city of humans. Ledas only destroyed the city because, at the time, he was seeing hallucinations of Layeeck and The Benefactor, and the hallucinations were bothering him greatly.
Soon, the New Red Ribbon Army was called in to try and find the alien who had been ravaging the area. Ledas engaged in the first deleted scene with Miki just before they arrived. Once they did arrive though, the New Red Ribbon Army shot off blutz waves throughout the city to make Ledas transform into a Great Ape. This allowed them to find out Ledas' identity. Additionally, while Ledas was a Great Ape, he ran into Yajirobe. The two eventually became friends and Ledas was able to get some senzu beans because of it.
The New Red Ribbon Army's search for Ledas coincided with Majin Buu's rampage on Earth. When the soldiers were looking for Ledas, they came upon his gravity training unit, which could be used as a spaceship. Wanting to escape Majin Buu, they prepared to use the gravity unit to travel into space. Then, they kidnapped Ledas' good friend, Ryori, to lure Ledas to them. This worked, and they were able to find and tranquilize the Saiyan before he could kill them. The saga ended with the New Red Ribbon Army fleeing to the stars to escape Majin Buu, with Ledas and Ryori as their hostages. As to why they kept Ledas as their hostage instead of killing him is unknown, but it appeared that they wanted him alive so that they could prove to King Furry (after the Majin Buu ordeal had been sorted out) that they had captured the alien who had been terrorizing the countryside.
After Kid Buu was defeated, the New Red Ribbon Army was able to return to the planet. As soon as they landed, however, their leader, Cardinal, told his underlings to kill Ledas and Ryori. This did not go as planned, as Ledas was able to prevent his death through eating senzu beans. He then escaped, saved Ryori, and killed most of the soldiers in the army. However, before he could do anything else, Ledas felt Guva's power close by on Earth. He then flew to where Guva was to see what the governor wanted. In reality, Guva was on Earth to find Ledas for The Benefactor. The Benefactor had figured out that it was the very same boy he had met in the Prince Vegeta Saga who had stolen his energy in Lauto's Cave so many years ago. He used Guva as a decoy to draw Ledas out. Unfortunately for The Benefactor, his plan also drew the Z Fighters to the governor as well.
Guva was forced to fight several of the Z Fighters to stall for time until Ledas reached him. When Ledas did, The Benefactor promptly killed the governor and tried to fight Ledas himself. The Z Fighters did not allow this and tried to fight off The Benefactor. However, the good alien had been using an attack to drain their powers, and as such, not one of Goku's gan could stand up to him. Ledas was properly reunited with Vegeta at this time, but Vegeta did not believe Ledas was real. This angered Ledas greatly, and with The Benefactor being so near him (and thus manipulating the stolen energy within Ledas' body to make the boy more feral), Ledas attacked Vegeta in sheer frustration and desperation so as to make his friend remember him. Vegeta only did after Ledas healed him with his last senzu bean. Then, Ledas challenged The Benefactor himself, and after a moderately short battle, he lost and was knocked unconscious. Of course, this resulted in Vegeta's Super Saiyan 3 transformation, and the prince was able to protect Ledas from The Benefactor by battling the monster, himself.
Ledas was also in two flashback scenes in this saga. The first was a scene which depicted Ledas and Prince Vegeta (as children) being taught how to control their Great Ape forms. Afterwards, they were able to go out and play in the snow, which was quite a rare occurrence on Planet Vegeta. The second scene showed Ledas and Vegeta discussing what kind of warriors they hoped they would be when they grew up and how they would be remembered by the galaxy.
At the start of the saga, Ledas woke up and saw The Benefactor and Vegeta still fighting. He went to help, but after Vegeta lost control of his Super Saiyan 3 form and had his power lowered enough to allow the alien to defeat him, The Benefactor was able to quickly knock out Ledas. At the same time, The Benefactor destroyed the car holding Yajirobe, Krillin, and senzu beans, as they were nearby too. Then, the alien started extracting the stolen energy from the boy's body. When The Benefactor re-absorbed the energy, he was severely wounded (as the energy had grown accustomed to Ledas' body), and this allowed Ledas to wake up, eat a senzu bean to heal himself, and fight the monster again. The two fought to a standstill, as The Benefactor was wounded and Ledas was stronger from a Zenkai after eating the senzu bean. Ledas blinded The Benefactor with two energy beams and The Benefactor hurt Ledas badly with his claws. Before they could do much else, however, Yajirobe appeared. When The Benefactor started calling him names, Yajirobe got mad and started throwing debris from his destroyed car at The Benefactor, which included the Korin's mind prison (which was seen in the two previous sagas on Korin Tower). The Benefactor was quickly sucked in. Yajirobe tried to help Ledas get out of the way of the prison's suction, but he couldn't stop the boy from being brought inside. As well, Yajirobe lost his katana to the mind prison.
Inside the mind prison, Ledas was confronted by a mysterious being clothed in sand and its pet Screechers. They attacked Ledas several times until the boy found The Benefactor inside the prison. As the two tried to restart their battle, the mysterious being separated them and tested them on their strengths and weaknesses. Afterwards, the being revealed itself to be Verlate. She offered to let them out if they would answer a riddle. Ledas immediately said he would do so, even though he didn't know what a riddle was. As he was trying to guess the answer to his riddle, Verlate snuck up behind him and did an energy signature switch, trying to switch places with the boy and damn him to the prison while she escaped. Needless to say, the plan did not work. Verlate was so depressed by that - and she realized that she could never get out of the mind prison, no matter what tricks she did - that she committed suicide. Before she left, she reminded Ledas and The Benefactor that with her gone, the two would have to fight over who would be bound to the mind prison.
As soon as Verlate died, Ledas and The Benefactor started fighting. Even with The Benefactor being weakened, blinded, and tired, Ledas was unable to best him. The Benefactor narrowly beat him. Instead of fleeing, though, The Benefactor was consumed by the bloodlust famous in his species and started tearing at Ledas' skin, torturing him and making him bleed. As he did this, Ledas saw Yajirobe's katana lying nearby. He grabbed it and sliced open The Benefactor's face. This hurt the alien greatly, but it also got him very angry. The Benefactor then ranted to Ledas about how he had killed the boy's grandfather, father, and had beaten all of his friends. He promised to kill all of the Z fighters and other Earthlings once he got out of the prison. Then, he called Ledas the son of a coward. This all pushed Ledas over the edge. He suddenly ascended to Super Saiyan 2 and beat the hell out of The Benefactor for a few moments before escaping the mind prison.
Once outside, Ledas returned to his life. He engaged in the second deleted scene with a nurse and Ryori. He forced Cardinal to buy Ryori a new house and pay for the boy's expenses as penance for what he had done to Ledas and Ryori. This house was just a few blocks from Capsule Corp. where Vegeta lived. Ledas continued training in his gravity training unit there, trying to get as strong as Vegeta. Soon after, he got a letter from Cardinal. The letter invited Ledas to a tournament to celebrate his (and the Z Fighters') role in defending the Earth from The Benefactor. Ledas went to the tournament and fought Trunks and Vegeta. He won his battle against Trunks, but lost the one against Vegeta. Seeing how Vegeta didn't care that Ledas was weaker than him, the boy and the prince were reunited, and their friendship was rekindled. After the tournament, Ryori, Ledas, and Vegeta returned to Capsule Corp. to feast and party.
Ledas then lived with Ryori and trained with Vegeta most of the time. He became quite close with Vegeta once again, and the two were training partners for the rest of Vegeta's life.
In chapter 2 of this story, it was revealed that Ryori and Ledas were gathering the Dragon Balls to revive Ryori's brother, Shoekki. Evidently, Ledas had just learned about the Dragon Balls' existence from Vegeta, and that is why they decided to start gathering them at that point, in the late Age 776. They only managed to find one Dragon Ball (the seven star ball) before accidentally dropping Bulma's Dragon Radar in the ocean and breaking it, so they had to return the radar to Bulma and wait for her to fix it before continuing.
Returning to their home, the two came upon Beelzebub, Abo, and Kado ransacking their house in search of the Dragon Ball. Ledas proceeded to fight the three, easily beating Aka in Super Saiyan, and taking out Beelzebub too. However, in the process, their home was destroyed, greatly distressing Ryori, who watched the events unfold from the front yard outside.
After defeating Beelzebub, Ledas agreed to help the demon prince gather the Dragon Balls so long as his and Ryori's wish was granted (they didn't have a need for the other two wishes). Ledas also promised Ryori that he would make sure Cardinal bought them a new, bigger house and to not worry, which did alleviate the boy's fears somewhat.
Ledas later met Jaco in Chapter 3 when he was at Bulma's house, waiting for her to fix the Dragon Radar. When he learned that Jaco had come in search of a rampaging space pirate Makyan called Paprikan, he offered to take Jaco to the man, excited at the prospects of fighting him. Jaco agreed, and Ledas was able to quickly sense that Paprikan was located somewhere in the northern region of the planet.
Flying them both there, he led Jaco to the underground yeti cult lair where Paprikan was being held. In their search, they found the Four Star Dragon Ball on a stone ritual table, triggering a horde of yeti shadow monsters to appear. The yeti monsters only attacked Ledas, who held the Dragon Ball (as well as the Seven Star Dragon Ball in his pocket). Seeing that they were only going for him and wanting to test Jaco's claim of being a Super Elite (which Jaco made many a time on their journey there), Ledas tossed the Four Star Dragon Ball to him and watched the yetis attack Jaco instead.
Jaco was able to deal with them, albeit by luck, but in the fray, Ledas lost Paprikan's power level. In reality, Paprikan, who had realized that Jaco and Ledas had come to arrest him, lowered his power level almost to zero. Ledas, not anticipating a random space pirate would have this ability, did not scan for Paprikan's power level very thoroughly, and as such, extremely low power levels were not accurately sensed.
Jaco and Ledas then met up with Beelzebub, Abo, and Kado, who had arrived to find that Dragon Ball on their continued quest. Ledas revealed to Beelzebub that they had found the Four Star Dragon Ball already. With the four balls Beelzebub had, that made six, leaving only one left to find. Ledas looked on the Dragon Radar and found that the last Dragon Ball was moving to their position. He sensed that it was Kibito Kai and Fat Buu who were approaching with the Dragon Ball.
Fearful of their power, Beelzebub sent Abo and Kado to intercept them while also asking Ledas to fight Buu as well. Ledas gave a non-committal answer, knowing that he would only step in if Buu defeated Aka.
Jaco, Prince Beelzebub, and Ledas then flew off after Abo and Kado and watched the fight from a rocky island in the middle of the ocean. For a while, Buu and Aka moved too fast for anyone but Ledas to see. Kibito Kai approached the three and confronted Ledas, asking him why he was helping Beelzebub. Ledas, who barely knew Kibito Kai from the various Z Fighter parties, and who absolutely did not know Kibito Kai was a god, shrugged the man off, making fun of his ponytail.
As he concentrated on Aka's and Buu's fight, Ledas let his guard down, allowing Paprikan, who had followed the trio to the island, to sneak up behind him and knock him unconscious with a headbutt.
Ledas was then woken up by Jaco in chapter 4 after Aka had outwitted Majin Buu and gotten the last Dragon Ball from him. Beelzebub was however missing. Abo, Kado, Ledas, and Buu did not know where he had gone, although Jaco did. Jaco did not say anything, however. Ledas wanted to make the wishes now since Kibito Kai was nearby, and Ledas didn't trust Kibito Kai to not try to steal a Dragon Ball or something dubious like that.
The others agreed, so Ledas summoned Shenron. He watched as Abo wished for he and his brother to be transported to a luxury suite in the Pink Oyster Cult on Poonjab VII. He tried to contain Buu afterwards, as Buu considered the two his friends and was maddened by their disappearance. Ledas gave Buu old candy from his pocket but that only gave Buu indigestion, and he wanted more candy.
When Buu continued to whine, Ledas lost his patience. Going Super Saiyan 2, he attacked Buu with a Feral rush, knocking the Majin unconscious and into the ocean. However, Shenron interpreted Buu's desire for more candy as a wish; thus candy rained from the skies and there was only one wish remaining.
Though he was annoyed, Ledas knew he had to take the last wish to revive Shoekki, not bothering to save it for Beelzebub. And that's just what he did. However, Shoekki was revived at the place of his death, not where the Dragon Balls were, so Ledas didn't see him get revived.
Afterwards, Ledas went to find Beelzebub, who had collapsed on a different island several miles away in the middle of the ocean after defeating Paprikan in a glorious and epic duel. Ledas woke him up and told him the bad news. Beelzebub was incensed that Abo and Kado and Buu had all gotten their wishes but not him. Ledas tried to get Beelzebub to calm down, but it was hopeless. Even so, Ledas flew Beelzebub back to the other island to get his stuff (which he had taken off to fight Paprikan).
After admitting that he had killed Paprikan, Beelzebub was told by Jaco that he could become a space bounty hunter. Ledas also became interested in this. Jaco told them all about how to become space bounty hunters, even giving them devices to get the weekly Bounty ID releases from Galactic Patrol HQ. Beelzebub and Ledas decided to form a partnership at this point, naming their new business Demon Hunters Incorporated™. Beelzebub promised that he would set it up with Ledas a week later at Capsule Corp., where they would begin their bounty hunting operations together. Ledas then said goodbye to Beelzebub and flew off to go find Shoekki and to reunite him with his brother.
Ledas later appeared at the end of chapter 5 when Beelzebub appeared in his new house with a teleporter device and asked the boy to help him track down his aunt Towa whom he had banished to Earth. Ledas agreed and was able to sense Towa, leading them to her location deep in the middle of the southern sea.
Ledas and Towa engaged in a very brief fight in which Ledas was forced to go Super Saiyan 2 but nevertheless quickly dominated her. After she took Beelzebub as a hostage, Towa was taken out with one punch by Super Saiyan 2 Ledas, who then went on an extended aerial combo finishing with a ki dagger punch through her skull, which killed her.
Afterwards, Ledas asked Beelzebub who their next target was jokingly.
In the 777 Age, Ledas left Earth for a brief period. Ledas hinted that he left because Ryori and he were arguing. He eventually landed on a planet and began training there. Of course, Ledas brought his mind prison with him. But, after sensing two huge power levels converging near him, he became overwhelmed with curiosity, and set off for to see them fight, completely forgetting the mind prison he left on the planet.
He then stumbled across Typhon and found the last remnant of the Planet Trade Organization under the command of Yuki. As they attempted to kill him, Ledas quickly destroyed all of the soldiers and then found their leader, Yuki, attacking another Saiyan named Cuber.
Ledas intervened and allowed Cuber to escape, but after Yuki started to fight him (and transformed into her most powerful form), Ledas was severely outclassed, even as a Super Saiyan 2. Luckily, Cuber was on Planet Typhon for a purpose, and he had gone to get a fusion device to fuse with Ledas. He then fused with the Saiyan boy, before Yuki could kill either of them. The resulting form, Cubas, was able to kill Yuki, though not before she was able to destroy the planet they were on. Fortunately, Cuber's wife, Chaiva, showed up at that time and was able to save Cubas and return him to Mrov to be defused.
After Ledas and Cuber were defused, Ledas was given a new space pod (as his previous one had been destroyed along with Typhon) and a Mrovian set of armor. He told Cuber and about the small group Saiyans living on Earth and invited them to visit the planet. Cuber declined, but Chaiva accepted. On their way towards Earth, Ledas remembered that he had left The Benefactor's mind prison on a planet when he had gone to see what the big power levels had been. When he returned to the planet, he wasn't able to find the mind prison, so he opted to destroy the planet.
When the two arrived on Earth, Ledas introduced Chaiva to Vegeta. Chaiva then stayed with Ledas and Ryori at their house for a few weeks while she stayed on the planet. This was, consequently, when the third deleted scene (known as "Bedtime" in Cold Vengeance) took place and where Ledas lost something quite extraordinary.
During the second deleted scene of Cold Vengeance, titled "The Morning After", Ledas got Chaiva pregnant (though he did not know it at the time). About nine months later, Chaiva gave birth to a pair of full-blooded Saiyan twins: a boy and a girl named Chari and Olivien.
West City SagaEdit
After learning about the Dragon Balls, Ryori and Ledas collect all seven of them to wish Shoekki back to life. Thereafter, Shoekki began to live with the boys in the house Cardinal bought for them.
More details from this saga will be added once KidVegeta starts working on Heart of the Dragon.
After Majin Buu escaped Hell 10 years after Goku killed him, the Z Fighters felt his power level spikes and gathered together in order to combat him. Because Majin Buu had absorbed Uub, his power level had become massive again, and he was able to easily take out the Z Fighters. Ledas was the grey-eyed fighter described in the story. He was never described by name as being Ledas, however. He was beaten by Buu like the rest of the Z Fighters.
In the 931 Age, Ledas was seen on an Imperial camera feed talking to an unseen figure about producing a son named Nir and potentially taking on Earth's totalitarian government (which, at the time, was being ruled by the dictatorish grandson of Emperor Pilaf). Though Ledas was not recognized as a citizen by the officers who watched the tape, they still classified him as a rebel and logged the name of his future son, "Nir", in their databases.
The Last Saiyan was a story primarily about Ledas' son, Nir, and it took place 10 years after the above incident. Ledas may or may not make a few appearances in the main story as well.
Dragon Ball: The Mrovian Series: Other World sagaEdit
Hundreds of years after the end of Cold Vengeance and The Last Saiyan, Ledas had died and was living in Other World with some of his old friends, including Vegeta. There, he was one of the fighters who aided the Supreme Kais in fighting off Amoon.
One time Ledas found this other Saiyan boy named Nathanyl and they fought each other and then they became really good friends if you know what I mean.
Another time, Ledas ran into the Oni Rianne The Twili. After the two shared lunch, Ledas challenged her to a fight in which both went all out, but Rianne held the slight edge. Ledas brought her back to his house in West City where she stayed for at least one night.
Ledas met Nathanyl again, and the two fought for a second time, leading to Ledas to relieve Nathan in a few ways.
Due to being ambidextrous, Ledas can use his forms with either his left or right side dominant. He slightly favors his left, as the split is roughly 55% to 45%.
Form I: 勢Edit
Ledas' most used form is his Hazumi (Spring or Bounce Form in English) fighting technique. This method of fighting was developed by him on his own. The stance is somewhat simple. First, Ledas lowers his legs, and gets onto a low crouch. Then, he pulls both of his hands forward and above his head. He then leans forward. This form's main advantage is that it leaves Ledas quick on his feet, and gives him an open window to counter almost any attack against him. It should be noted that, while one hand generally is stretched further forward than the other, Ledas does not have a single hand that he usually does this with, as he is ambidextrous. He will switch dominance depending on his mood.
This form is also a casual form of Ledas'. Generally, he will use this against opponents who are much lower in strength than him, or against friends, in a friendly sort of way. The looseness of the form is the main reason for it being his casual form.
Aside from what has been previously mentioned, this form's attacking abilities are somewhat focused over Ledas' other forms. For one, the ki enhancements that Ledas uses do take away from his ability to use ki based attacks. Ledas coats himself in his aura, and uses that to literally soak himself in his ki. This makes it much more difficult to attempt energy based attacks. Instead, this form relies on physical attacks almost exclusively. The enhancements go so far as to heighten his abilities to wild sense, ki dash, think faster, and increase endurance. However, this form does not increase his base strength in any way over his normal maximum state. It simply focuses it and gives him greater endurance to fight longer.
Form II: 帝国Edit
Ledas' Teikoku Form (Imperial Form in English) was his original fighting form in the first saga. This was taught to him by all of his Saiyan mentors, including his father, grandfather, and Nappa. This is the form taught to all Super Elites, including Prince Vegeta - though the Prince's form would evolve as time wore on. Unlike the forms of the lower-class Saiyans, and many of the Elites, this form relies equally on energy as well as physical attacks. Indeed, in the case with Vegeta, the form can become specialized enough to be more focused on energy release.
Ledas' stance is very restrained. He stands with a slight tilt, with his right shoulder slightly forward. His hands remain at his side, but are slightly bent backward in a defensive gesture. His legs are slightly buckled, and his shoulders are thrown back, to show off pride and confidence against his opponents. This form is generally used against tougher opponents. Its usual opening move is a wild sense leading to a teleportation and attempted bicycle kick against the opponent.
As previously mentioned, this form is about restraint and patience. Though Ledas was no master of either of those qualities, it was taught to him, from a very early age, that whilst fighting, one must be patient to win. The defensive nature of this form really gives the user no choice in that.
When fighting, this form is equally good in the air as it is on the ground. Mainly, one tries to attack in a fluid combination of kicks and punches that are predetermined. Using spontaneous moves can hinder this form, as if the user is not careful, and makes a wrong move, their defense will be laid barren, and they will be hurt badly.
In this form, air combat is mainly ki combat, and not a physical engagement. The main strategy is to pepper the enemy with small ki blasts in an attempt to make them either become enraged, abandon their strategy and attack, or return to the ground. If the first two actions happen, Ledas was taught to immediately create one of his powerful energy beams and shoot it at his opponent. If the third happens, they go back to the ground, wherein, after learning the opponent's fighting style before, Ledas can now easily and tactically dismantle his opponent through precision kicks and punches, not to mention any ki-based attacks he may desire to defeat them with.

Forms and TransformationsEdit
Being a Saiyan, Ledas has the ability to use multiple transformations. These forms are listed in the order in which they were first attained.
This form was Ledas' most powerful transformation, up until the climax of the Stomping Grounds Saga. In Great Ape form, Ledas' power level was immediately raised to 10x his base strength. Despite this great power, Ledas used his Great Ape form sparingly. The reasons for this were various; for one, it wasn't ever needed in the Prince Vegeta Saga, as he was powerful enough without it. In the Lauto Saga, Ledas did have to fall back on this form one time, in a fight against Meloon, Lieme, and Payar. While the form made Ledas superior to those warriors, Captain Banas was still able to beat Ledas; this was because of the slowness of the Great Ape form. Ledas also used his Great Ape form to fight against Nepar so that he could deal with the size difference between the two. Ledas abandoned this form thereafter and did not use it in combat ever again. It was seen one more time in the Planet Earth Saga, when Ledas was transformed into it by some humans shooting blutz waves into his body. Yajirobe eventually cut off Ledas' tail, and the Saiyan boy was never seen transforming into a Great Ape in the story again.
This was a briefly shown form, and it was first witnessed on Lauto's planet. It was achieved after Ledas accidentally absorbed a cloud of ki that contained much of Lauto's and The Benefactor's power. In this form, Ledas' eyes turned the Super Saiyan-prevalent green and his hair was colored a stark white. Several reoccurring flashbacks caused Ledas to fall into this form during the Stomping Grounds Saga, however, the form was so painful that he was not able to function while in it. Later, he was able to gain some control over this form when his base power reached a high enough threshold. The multiplier of this form is a little more than 3.5x the user's base maximum.
This form was achieved by Ledas at the conclusion of the Stomping Grounds Saga. He broke down after seeing Payar hurt some of the planet's natives, noting that, like him, they were nothing but weak slaves. Seeking personal agency in his hopelessness, Ledas became very emotional and suddenly ascended to Super Saiyan.
Like all other Super Saiyans, Ledas' hair was turned golden and his eyes became green. More significantly though, this form boosted his strength up to 50x his base power level, easily allowing Ledas to take on all of the inhabitants of Planet Cooler 92. This form was used by Ledas often after that; particularly, it was seen in his fights against Vegeta, Piccolo, Dewberry, Trunks, and The Benefactor.
Ledas' Super Saiyan 2 form was achieved by him in the Fulfillment Saga. When he and The Benefactor were in Verlate's mind prison, the two of them fought a lengthy battle which ultimately resulted in The Benefactor being victorious. After his victory, he started attacking Ledas again, as he was consumed by his bloodlust, allowing Ledas to wound him significantly with a sneak attack. Afterwards, in a raging rant, The Benefactor confessed that he had killed Ledas' grandfather, father, and had defeated all of the Z Fighters. He told Ledas that the good guy doesn't always win and that the boy should just give up. He called the boy the son of a coward and promised to kill all of his friends once he got out of the prison. After hearing all of this, Ledas became emotionally distraught and ascended to Super Saiyan 2.
Ledas used this form to fight The Benefactor in Verlate's mind prison and to spar with Vegeta in Cardinal's tournament in The Forgotten's finale. As Super Saiyan 2 yields a 100x increase to the user's base power level, this was Ledas' most powerful form in The Forgotten.
Ledas achieved his Super Saiyan 3 form in the 778 Age during the events of Dragon Ball: Heart of the Dragon. While this was his strongest form at the time, the strain it put on his body, even with his tail, was extreme, and Ledas rarely used this transformation because of that. Ledas' Super Saiyan 3 form is therefore his least-used transformation.
As a consequence of Ledas learning about this form from Vegeta in the second saga of Heart of the Dragon, Ledas achieved this form not long after the God of Destruction Beerus Saga. He performed the ceremony with Cuber, Chaiva, his twin children, Olivien and Chari, and the various children of Cuber and Chaiva. Ledas, Cuber, and Chaiva all achieved this transformation at this time (taking time to rest and restore everyone between ceremonies). It then became the form that they tried to use the most, in order to get closer to Vegeta's and Goku's powers, which were still far ahead of all of theirs. Therefore, after Ledas achieved this form, he almost exclusively used it for his fights in the second and third sagas of Heart of the Dragon.
The Mrovian fusion between Ledas and another Saiyan, Cuber, this was Ledas' strongest overall form. Adding the power levels of Ledas and Cuber together and then multiplying that number by three will yield Cubas' base strength. He can then become ridiculously more powerful in various Super Saiyan forms. Cubas looked like a mixture of Ledas and Cuber, though he was an adult.
Cubas was only used in Cold Vengeance during the Saiyans' battle against Yuki. This was the only transformation that Ledas has never lost a battle in.
