Lionhead Studios have unveiled another character that will be appearing in the upcoming Kinect enabled Fable Legends
on Xbox One. This time it's resident barber "Leech", who also moonlights as a doctor, surgeon and mortician; whatever is required to satiate his macabre interests.
A born barber-surgeon, Leech offered more than just a haircut and a shave to the residents of Whitehollow. He provided tooth extraction, piles massage and cures to all things noxious and intoxicating. He did this with a smile and an enthusiasm that many found completely unnerving and made worse by a hearty laugh that didn't seem to sit with the fact he was elbow deep in someone’s chest.
Ever since he first started poking dead things with a stick, Leech has had an all-consuming fascination with the squidgy bits that make people work. If someone fell ill, Leech would be there to document what happened to them. If someone died, Leech would appear to ask if he could have a poke around in them to discover what had gone wrong.
From amateur enthusiast to Physik practitioner, Leech had healed people as much by luck as judgement, but now, carrying the essence of a Shadowblight within him, Leech found he really could cure people. No matter the injury or ailment, channelling life from one creature, through himself, and then out into another meant he could heal any wound and even restore those on the brink of death.
Leech will be joining other characters previously revealed, including Shroud
. First announced at Gamescom 2013
, Fable Legends
will allow players to team up with three friends online and partake in adventures around Albion. Unfortunately there is still no release date, but we will report it when it's known.
