More about Leroy:
Born in the middle of a warring period for many gans in New York, Leroy was a child of a gang member family. After a particularly bloody shootout, his parents were killed. He was injured and left floating in the river that eventually carried him out into the open seas. A merchant ship crew later rescued him and raised him.
Once, when traveling through Hong Kong, he found an incredibly appealing form of martial arts and settled into the city to develop his skills with it. After many years, Leroy decided to go back to New York to enact revenge on the gangs and liberate the city from their control.
While dismantling the gangs, Leroy learned that Mishima Zaibatsu was behind the decades-long rivalry between the gangs, and their continued involvement would perpetuate that cycle of death. So he set out to join the King of Iron Fist Tournament to win it.
Leroy has white dreads with gold jewelry adorning some of the dreads. He also has a mustache and beard, and also has a dragon tattoo on his right arm, as well as tattoos of rings on his thumbs. Leroy is blind in his right eye, although he is mostly seen with his eyes obscured by a pair of black sunglasses.
Leroy's main outfit consists of a long white jacket and red bottoms. The jacket is decorated with two golden dragons on the front, and a mark on the back. His shoes are golden, and with a leopard print decoration. He also wears a large golden medallion around his neck. He wears sunglasses and carries a cane that has brass knuckles for a handle. In the reveal trailer he is revealed to have two two additional outfits, the first being his formal attire which has a Chinese button shirt beneath and the second being his fighting attire minus the jacket, revealing many black tattoos on his bare chest and back which were originally concealed.
Leroy's moveset contains many of such fast strikes and flurries of punches, providing him some very effective and varied counter tools. Leroy also has possesses a very strong parry game, making him a very dangerous opponent. These strengths, combined with his moveset's more straightforward execution, make him a more simple to pick up, beginner-friendly character.
Leroy uses Wing Chun (a Chinese form of self-defensive martial art) as his main fighting style, along with the occasional use of a cane and the support of his pet dog Sugar.
Unique feature for Leroy is that he can utilize his cane as a weapon to beat down his opponents and to launch his special attacks. This attack functions somewhat similar to a rage drive except that it does not require rage to use. Instead, the player can only use the attack once per match.
