Leip Barielle (ライプ・バーリエル) was a count and Priscilla Barielle's former husband.
Leip is an older man with slicked back hair. He wears clothes befitting that of nobility.
Leip is known to be a strict person to himself as well as to others and was considered to be a competent commander. He was also ambitious as he found Priscilla before the royal family died and tried to use both her and Sphinx to further his goals. Leip is mentioned to be lewd by Priscilla. Because of his self-serving personality, he is not very well liked among his vassals and citizens who struggled under his rulership until Priscilla came and won them over. He was also a ruthless and cunning man, always one step ahead of everyone in his goals of seizing the throne for himself and was ready to take action to remove any thorns in his side.
Leip was trusted by the Lugnician royal family and was responsible for the administration of the Dragon Tablet. Using the information about the prophecy to his advantage, he searched for a candidate and found Priscilla. He had ambition to seize the throne in the Royal Selection through her and married Priscilla prior to the official ceremony for that reason. Leip had also setup a tournament for her to find a knight for the selection. She was originally to choose from among the top four, not knowing that in reality the contest had been fixed and all of them were his pawns in order to be used control her unpredictable behavior. However Priscilla picking Al instead botched part of the plan.
As a way to rectify this sometime later, Leip brought Gilian Endymion to replace Al and to later use him in his plot to put a curse on Priscilla after the opening ceremony of the selection. However, Schult objected to this idea, and Leip attempted to kill him as a result. Thanks to Al's change of heart, his plan backfired and he broke Leip's mind in the end. He's believed to have died some time after this event, and as a result, Priscilla assumed his authority and land.
