Sir Leon is a knight, and presumably he'll eventually become one of the Knights of the Round Table. He works for King Uther. He's always around, he helps out: he's very loyal; if there's a problem or there are bad people around, he's there; he delivers the news; he will joust with Arthur when he needs to practice. He's kind of the Camelot dogsbody, if there are things to be done, he does them.
