Leopold, the Heart of Courage
Leopold is a descendant of one of the most influential Tigron families and serves as a knight to the Magistrate. His Father was part of the ancient Paladins but fell in their final battle. To honor his Father Leopold swore allegiance to Grand Magister Karne, as soon as Leopold came of age. Six years have passed since then. In his function as Knight he was tasked to hunt down any and all beings, that opposed the Law, independent from the Lawkeepers, as an Agent of the Magistrate, which he did with a fiery passion. But ever since Valera has reappeared, Leopolds faith has started to weaver.
Whom was he to trust?
Disclaimer: When I say Tigron, I imagine some kind of beastkin like Pip. The way I see it, Tigron are Humanoid Catpeople, that have both similarities to Tigers and Lions, since Tigron is the french word for Liger, a mixture of Lion and Tiger.
Since real life Tigron/Liger are absurdly tall I picture the Tigron race in Paladins to be taller than average humans, which means that Maeve got her short stature from her Human side of the family and/or the high probability that she grew up on the streets.

Overall Legal Stuff:
Since there was a data mine about a Tigron that uses some kind of spear and some kind of sword this is the closest Leopold probably ever will be to actually be part of the game.
But: Every part of this champion concept, be it skills, design, lore, cards and whatnot is free for Hi-Rez/Evil Mojo to use without the need to mention, pay or credit me in any way, shape or form.
