Leech is the Horde's evil master of suction.
The origin of Leech is never explored,
although he was once seen appearing all too suddenly from a marsh [
] and therefore refering to the roots of
his animal counterpart. He is another of the Hordesmen to whom Hordak directs his 'Horde
science and magic' comment, along with Mantenna, Grizzlor and Scorpia. [
Hordak makes a reference to the origins of
several Horde members
Leech is oddly the most prominent member
of Catra's Force Squad, especially when acknowledging his minimal amount of appearances
in the show and his surprising ability at being useless. He has featured as part of the full-squad [
], with a seemingly part-time member [
] and in a smaller group. [
The general power Leech was blessed with,
aside from almost formidible strength [
], is the ability to drain people's energy
with his suction-cupped hands. A worthy power if ever there was one, but as it was only used twice [
] and threatened with once more [
], it was never fully utilisted to reach its
potential. As a side note, it was also revealed early on that Leech actually had hands that
could be changed to become his suction-cups. [
] However, this was used early on in the series
and was abandoned from there onwards.
Though he was a very threatening creature, it would
often seem as this was false pretence, especially after retreating from battle with She-Ra [
], running away petrified of the onslaught of Shadow Weaver [
] and even racing from the so-called cowardly dragon Sorrowful. [
Leech is almost on a par with Grizzlor as far
as intelligence goes. [
] However, he didn't get as much air-time as Hordak's
hairy henchman, so it wasn't explored as much as his was. In a similar way, his feelings towards Imp
were never given enough of a chance to be fully portrayed. It seems, from several instances, that the
two didn't get on [
] but a head-tohead conflict never arose between the two,
so no factual points can be discussed. One thing that can be mentioned, however, is that wild tongue -
judging by its ferocity, it seems that that would have been a better weapon when battles took place! [
