AboutEdit

Lesgle is described to be the man with the smile, though possibly, the worst luck ever. He has been studying law since he was sent down from university. There is never a day where laughter does not consume him so least as once and the smile he wears never fails to accompany him on most any occasion. For a man with such luck as his own, he is most certainly a glowing ball of delight that many take pleasure of knowing. He claims he has no hard feelings against his own luck and seems to be quite content with the fact that nothing quite ever goes his way. Lesgle's best friend is Joly whom he shares nearly everything with. Including a mistress by the name of Musichetta.

Lesgle undoubtedly respects Joly and so long as Joly is around, he himself intends to be around. He is devoted to the cause just as any other and fears the concept of death just as any other. Lesgle is nearly convinced that should Joly die, he would as well. And with his luck, death seems to play in his favour. It is not something he typically wishes to discuss. He prefers humorous conversations with profound laughter.
