Appearance and personality
His official debut was in Star Fox 64 on the planet Fortuna, or later on Bolse or Venom Here, his primary target would always be Falco Lombardi. While engaged with Falco, Leon would often comment on his own superiority and, when shot down, became incensed by the fact that he had been defeated despite being the Great Leon.
- "A member of Star Wolf who's a cold-blooded assassin. He has no morals or conscience and will perform any job with machinelike disinterest."
- — Star Fox: Assault instruction booklet, page 39
Not much is made known of Leon Powalski, though it can be assumed he is a long time ally of Wolf O'Donnell since they joined the Venomian Army, as Wolf allowed him to join his elite fighter squadron Star Wolf.
Spoiler warning: The following contains key plot or ending details.
The Great Leon
Leon was a member of Wolf O'Donnell's original Star Wolf team that was hired by Andross during the Lylat Wars. His first encounter with the Star Fox team since the war began was on the planet Fichina. Here he tried to prevent the team from stopping a bomb from going off in a Cornerian base. He also fought Star Fox ace pilot, Falco Lombardi. Leon was quickly shot down by team leader, Fox McCloud, who then proceeded to take out the bomb. If Leon was not shot down by Fox, he defended the Bolse Defense Outpost.
If the Star Fox team managed to make their way through Area 6 to get to Venom, Leon and the rest of Star Wolf would spring an ambush in their new, advanced ship, the Wolfen II. Leon was forced to use special targeting systems to pilot this ship. Unfortunately for Leon, he was still bested by the Star Fox team and went under their radar for nine years.
During those nine years, Star Wolf left the Venomian Army's employment, lost two members, and gained a third. Other than Wolf himself, Leon was the only Star Wolf member to see these nine years through. Leon assisted Wolf in building an empire in the Sargasso Space Zone. When Star Fox infiltrated the base, Leon, along with Wolf and the team's newest member, Panther Caroso, returned and fought the team. Once again, Leon was defeated by Fox. When the Star Fox team stormed the base of Pigma Dengar in the Asteroid Belt, they found the ruined remains of the Wolfens.
After Fox was ambushed by the Aparoids, Star Wolf revealed their survival and saved him. Leon and Star Wolf followed Star Fox to the Beltino Orbital Gate and helped them destroy the missiles sent to destroy the base. They also entered the warp to the Aparoid Homeworld. Before the Star Fox team made it to the Aparoid Queen, Leon with the rest of Star Wolf distracted the queen's guards so that Star Fox could make their move.
Canon warning: The following content contains information that has not been confirmed canon or non canon.
Over the two years after the Aparoids' attack, Leon and Star Wolf gained a huge bounty on their heads due to continuing criminal activity.
Fog of War
Wolf, Leon, and Panther attacked Fox and Slippy on their mission on Fichina. While Leon appeared here, he played no large role in the attack.
This story occurs if Fox goes to Fichina to hire Wolf.
Once again, the Star Wolf team attacked Fox on Fichina. Leon's only role was taunting Fox for fighting three on one. Later, when Wolf and Fox were heading to the planet Solar, Wolf suggested they forget about Falco and look for Leon and Panther.
In this storyline, Fox went to Fichina to beg Krystal's forgiveness. She was there with two of her new teammates, Leon and Panther. Leon taunted Fox for his mistakes, but was the only one to think about him after the mission. Leon laughed at Fox as he begged Krystal to rejoin his team.
Star Wolf Returns
This story occurs if Krystal chooses not to return to Star Fox.
Leon followed Krystal and Panther to Venom where they met up with Wolf. Leon revealed that he couldn't wait to be hero and seemed to show a friendlier side. Leon helped his team members finally defeat the Anglar Emperor and returned to Corneria to claim his title as hero.

PAL: Star Wolf's resident sniper. When he finds his mark, he takes them out with - what else? - his long chameleon tongue! OK, just kidding. He uses a rifle. Probably. We haven't watched him do it. Anyway, he's a merciless foe you don't want to cross, but if he's with you, he'll never let you down. He's Wolf's most trusted ally.
