Before the Gate Rune Wars, he was a successful merchant at Kouan, but he secluded himself so that he wouldn't have to get involved with the Gate Rune Wars. However, when Tir and company stole Kirinji in an effort to gain audience with Lepant, Kraze kidnapped his wife, Eileen. Lepant went to rescue her, and with Tir's help they confronted Kraze, who sends soldiers against them, then held Eileen hostage.
Kraze then summoned Pahn, who rebelled against Kraze and rescued Eileen. With Kraze dealt with, and the corruption of the Scarlet Moon Empire revealed, Lepant decided to join with the Liberation Army. At this time, he tries to tell Eileen that they are no longer married to spare her the hardships of war, but she chose to remain at his side. Lepant is a fierce warrior, and with his sword Kirinji, he was second to none in battle.
After the Gate Rune Wars was over, Tir McDohl leaves without a word. This sent a massive shock throughout the Toran Liberation Army, so everyone asked Lepant to become the President. Lepant agrees, and became the first president of the Toran Republic.
During the Dunan Unification War, Lepant makes amends with the New State Army and acknowledges that Luca Blight poses a danger to the Toran Republic as well (as it would logically be the next target in the insane King's rampage), he lends a battalion of the Toran military; along with either Valeria or Kasumi to lead it in their battle against the Highland Kingdom.
