Leiandros was a Pephkan man living in Lato, Krete during the 5th century BCE. He had a wife, Kore, and a daughter, Amara.


Leiandros took advantage of Pephka's history with the Minotaur, and had created an intricate, apparently successful business out of his 'Minotours' by the time of the Peloponnesian War.[1] His business involved 'pre-trials' to test the contenders, and the 'minotours' were made up of parties of three, who would face the 'Minotaur' in the depths of the Cave of the Brave in the Dikte Plateau. The Minotaur was in fact Leiandros himself, wearing a ill-fitting, poorly-made mask.[2]

His enterprise eventually drew the attention of the Cult of Kosmos, who sought to gain control over everything in Pephka. In order to ensure Leiandros' acquiescence, the Cult kidnapped Amara, threatening her life unless Leiandros worked for them and kept their part in all that was going on in Pephka a secret, even from his wife. The Cult also employed bandits from the ruins of Zakros to attack the champions who dared to face the 'Minotaur'.[2]

Unable to save his daughter, Leiandros tried to repeatedly sneak a peek at her at the ruins, but failing to see her, came to the conclusion that she was held underground.[2]

Some days later, Leiandros met the Spartan misthios Kassandra. Seeing in her just another glory-hungry champion to swindle out of her drachmae and end up as a victim of the Cult, Leiandros tried to subtly warn Kassandra to stay away, but to no avail. Despite Leiandros' repeated attempts to deter her,[3] Kassandra made her way to the Cave of the Brave to slay the Minotaur, together with two other mercenaries, the brothers Arixis and Ankos.[2]

While the brothers fled in fear, Kassandra faced the 'Minotaur' and slew the bandits who attacked her. Afterwards, Leiandros unmasked himself and told Kassandra everything. Together, they made their way to Zakros, whence they rescued Amara.[4]

After fleeing Zakros, and revealing himself to be the 'Minotaur' to Amara, Leiandros and Amara were escorted by Kassandra back to Warrior's Rest, to the delight of Kore. The family then decided to leave Pephka, as they considered it to be no longer safe for themselves, and warned Kassandra that her deeds would bring "repercussions from people who are not known to be forgiving."[4]
