Leonine is a servant of Dionyza’s. He is a loyal and obedient man, willing to kill Marina in spite of his own inclination when ordered to.
He once parted two people fighting, and was hurt in the process. He is not however brave enough to face up to a brace of pirates. Before returning to claim that she is dead, he makes sure that the pirates do indeed carry her off rather than simply raping her and leaving her be.
