For a long time, many believed Leila was a man because of her hard features. The ebony-skinned girl was quite proficient with a blade, and soon found work as a Sellsword in the Bull Duchy, ridden with so many intrigues and plots that even the smallest baron could not do without a bodyguard or two. During this time, her reputation grew steadily, and she was eventually hired by a travelling scholar, a Necromancer called Javed. She accompanied him in his quest to find the lost secrets of the Shantiri, and soon saw the obvious benefits of becoming an immortal Vampire. More than satisfied with his hireling, Javed vouched for her introduction in the Spider Cult. Among her enemies, she is now known as the Black Widow.
Leila is a Might hero of the Necropolis faction. As such, her default class is Ebon Knight. While her Dynasty character is listed as a Death Knight, the player may choose to develop her however they please. Her specialization, Shield to the Bloodless, increases the Might and Magic Defense of Vampires by 10 each.
Lelia appears only in Might & Magic: Heroes VI.
