Leon (Gr: Λεων) was one of the Gigantes who tried to take Mount Olympus. While it was true that to kill a Gigante a god or goddess needed the help of a mortal hero, the opposite is not neccisarily true. Leon is an example of that.  The only place he appears is in Ptolemy Hephaestion, New History Book 5


Gaia (Mother) & Tartaros (Father)


Leon which in Ancient Greek translates to Lion is rightly named. Leon had the head of a lion and skin of a lion


Leon battled Herakles in the Giants war against the gods. Leon challenged Herakles in singles competition and without aid from a deity, Herakles killed the Gigante. After defeating Leon, The legendary Herakles made a protective cloak from his leonine skin.
