|Full Name|| Leah Needlenam|
|Date of Birth||September 8, 1991|
|Current Status||In the desert with Strafe|
|First Appearance||Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture (first official appearance)|
Leah was created without a series to attach her to. As such, most of her character development comes from various crossovers. Although she was intended to show up in a movie called Leah Needlenam in the Graveyard of Gods, the movie was cancelled and as such Leah is one of the rare characters that has no franchise to tie down to. As such, she is somewhat of an oddity as everyone seems to know her in Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture and Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered but she had no appearances prior.
Leah Needlenam is a crazed doctor who only cares for her well being and X-Ray's. She will do anything if it benefits her or X-ray, not caring who else benefits or is harmed from it. She runs a hospital for an unknown purpose, although she seems to collect a ton of organs.
When interacting with others, she is calm and collected unless suddenly threatened, in which she turns to panic. She can be very quirky at times. She rarely makes death threats, although does subtly hint at fates she has in mind for people she doesn't like.
Leah has been shown occasionally to drink and smoke, although she isn't addicted to either. She also enjoys Japanese culture, but mostly keeps this to herself, with it coming as a surprise to Reese.
Leah Needlenam was born as Sarah Auvic to a loving family that consisted of Mr. and Mrs. Auvic. During the first three years of Sarah Auvic's life, she was noted for her purple hair, which neither Mr. or Mrs. Auvic had, suggesting that Mrs. Auvic had cheated on Mr. Auvic, although DNA tests confirmed this was not the case. While word got around town about the purple haired baby, a group called the Twisted Cross took notice, noting a prophecy about a purple haired woman that would either bring down the organization or save it. They murdered Mr. and Mrs. Auvic and took Sarah Auvic to be their own, intending to train her to become the savior of the Twisted Cross.
After 20 years of being in the Twisted Cross, Leah met X-Ray and betrayed the Twisted Cross by saving X-Ray and hiding out in an abandoned hospital where she took care of X-Ray in not so good ways. The Twisted Cross has since reformed, although they learned from their mistakes and found Beth Operatino, who they had brainwashed and dyed her hair to be green so that she wouldn't know her role in the Twisted Cross.
Sometime before Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture, Leah was introduced to Unten and many of the other Fantendo characters, causing her to do a fair deal of research of the pasts of these characters.
After Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture, Leah apparently became endued with a ton of power (likely from attempting to become a Catalyst herself), leading to the events of D-E-A-D S-A-G-A where she created a very shortlived pocket dimension made from flesh, blood, and other mutated body parts.
Shortly after Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered, Leah begged for her memories to carry into the next Fantendoverse, which the Fan complied with. Leah proceeded to relive about 5 years with these memories in her head, which allowed her to redo her relationship with X-Ray, no longer poisoning her with diseases to force her to stay. However, while X-Ray considered Leah a friend, Leah was afraid to mess up their relationship again, deciding to "practice" with Xerox shortly after the events of Strafe: Warzones.
Leah is a purple haired woman with very intense eyes which are a bluish purple. They are some what narrower than the average. Typically her hair is somewhat messy, with two stands always up on one side of her head.
She wears a jumpsuit labcoat of sorts although this has been interpreted as a lab coat with a red dress by others until the secret was revealed. In Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered, she gets a new outfit that is known as "Type X". The labcoat is light blue and there are Xes incorporated all throughout the design. The pants, when her legs cross, form a X.
She also has a often missed detail on her hand; the needle finger. At some point, Leah cut off her finger and replaced it with a needle. This sometimes appears empty or full; it's implied she can take it off or replace it. In all official art, she has never been seen without it.
Post-Shattering, Leah has a new look. She now wears a more basic outfit; a white shirt with cross shaped buttons and a collar with three buttons keeping it closed, one of those buttons being a blue cross. She also now wears black shorts. She keeps the bandage wrapping leggings. One small change is her skin tone; it is now even whiter than before.
Status as a Deity
The following information only applies to Leah Needlenam Pre-Shattering.
Leah Needlenam has been considered a deity in some universes, notably during Leah Needlenam in the Graveyard of Gods, where she manages to kill God. Seen in D-E-A-D S-A-G-A, she has access to godly powers, although they seemingly create grotesque landscapes of giant floating human limbs. In Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered, it's revealed she hooked herself up to some of the dead God's blood, allowing her to gain his powers, although much like in D-E-A-D S-A-G-A, it comes out as a bunch of grotesque tentacles and mouths.
It's unknown exactly how much Leah has control over these powers after obtaining them, if at all. It's been stated by many other deities that she could not actually do much with these powers even if she attempted anything; they seem solely dedicated to combat or creating grotesque universes, which means that she isn't likely to use them.
Nobody, aside from herself, seems to actually worship Leah Needlenam as a god. According to Angie, if she died, she would not get a spot in the Graveyard of Gods. Thus, Leah Needlenam's status as a deity is actually very questionable, as the relation is only tied to blood.
Post-Shattering, she was brought back down to mortal levels, although she has knowledge of the old universe in somewhat of a trade-off. However, using this info rarely proves to be helpful.
The Hospital is where Leah Needlenam and X-Ray live and preform surgeries. There are only 4 rooms in this hospital and two of them are Leah and X-Ray's rooms. One room has all the standard medical equipment, and another room is a waiting room. The operating room is dark and filthy, while the waiting room is fairly clean. X-Ray's room has a very low quality bed while Leah has a nice king sized bed.
Since this character appears in so many different universes, it's been split up.

Another Mystery at Fantendo Mansion
Leah appears in this show. She is a anti-hero like Jake in the original Mystery at Fantendo Mansion.
PHD to Kill
Leah has no ties to the stories at all, being a guest character. Leah is a semi-joke character, considering how ridiculous her playstyle is. You have to get up close and personal to deal damage as Leah cant pick up non-melee weapons, it is recomended to be good at ambushing or just don't play as her.
In the first timeline, Leah Needlenam broke Koloro's nose and scared off Riddle, however in the second timeline she died rather fast, being killed by Black God who was actually aiming for Zerita, being among the first that died in the initial bloodbath.
Leah Needlenam and the Graveyard of Gods
When X-Ray falls under a deadly illness and none of Leah's transfusions seem to work, she sets out to find god and steal his organs. When she discovers that the united states has found a portal to another dimension (namely the dimension of god) and can communicate with god via a secret room in the pentagon (aka Pentagod), she sets out to get inside the pentagon and travel to God's dimension.
Dark Woods II: New Woods
Leah appears as a secret and optional boss in Dark Woods II: New Woods. She was added after the creator of the series participated in the Community Draw of Leah Needlenam and saw her as fitting for the series. In Dark Woods II: New Woods, the ends of the mouth are stitched together and her arms is replaced with a giant needle filled with organs. She has a similar attack pattern as her boss fight in Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered.
She can be found inside of the circus tent after defeating Aries, and before entering the final area. A weird portal was conjured up there which brings the player (Hein, Lily, Rai or Red) to the rooftop of a hospital where she is faced. After defeating her a portal appears again and as they head through it she can be seen standing up again.
It is unknown why Leah Needlenam cares about her. While she does stuff for X-Ray's benefit, X-Ray does not show signs of whether she is happy or displeased with Leah's actions, as if she is ignoring her. Leah constantly strives for X-Ray's attention, but is rarely given any.
The two finally speak to each other during Fantendo the Animated Series: The Next Generation during "First Words", where X-Ray finally speaks to Leah (albeit with five words only from X-Ray), although it is not the happy words she was expecting.
It is revealed during Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture that Leah is in love with X-Ray, something that has been implied since her debut but confirmed within that game. It is unknown why X-Ray never just leaves Leah until Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered, where it's revealed that Leah is constantly pumping her with diseases that require transplants, which is why she collects so many organs. When asked if she regrets that, since X-Ray will likely never like her back due to that, she says no, but is visibly depressed, indicating that she is likely lying. This is only one of the two moments where Leah visibly shows regret for her actions.
After the Shattering, Leah wished to be a better person for X-Ray, going as far to redo everything up to the point where X-Ray was brought in, returning some vague memories that grew stronger. The two escaped the Twisted Cross together but this time Leah didn't inject with her with diseases only she could cure, instead trying to go a more friendly route.
Leah decided to play it as safe as possible in order to not sabotage their relationship, dating Xerox in what she called "Practice". It is unknown if Leah would have ever asked X-Ray on her own. X-Ray seems to feel something for Leah but due to the fact she was dating Xerox she didn't really think she was ever an option. During the events of "Prom Night", the two finally got together.
It is implied frequently that the two engage in some kind of BDSM, or at the very least, some light version. In somewhat of an ironic twist, it seems like Leah is the one who is dominated in the relationship. It is also somewhat hinted that X-Ray doesn't exactly like playing such a harsh role with her but does it because it makes Leah happy.
The Twisted Cross
During Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture, it is revealed that Leah used to be in a organization called The Twisted Cross, a group of doctors that misused the bible's teachings to justify their horrible experiments. It is implied that X-Ray was involved and was meant to be a experiment, but since Leah could not bring herself to experiment on X-Ray, she turned on the group and escaped with X-Ray.
The mother figure of the three members. Leah doesn't respect her that much, although on some level she wants to reconnect on her own terms. However, Susan seems to want the opposite, and Leah's not up for compromises. During Leah's 18th birthday, the two had sex and Leah has had very mixed feelings about it, feeling somewhat cheated (as it was her first time) and also feeling like Susan was a hypocrite about it. This event seems to be the catalyst of why Leah doesn't trust Susan and berates her in almost her encounters.
Although Leah isn't aware of Beth's existence for a while, when she does, she has a rude awakening as Beth attempts to take her and X-Ray's life. Leah manages to break Beth's brainwashing, in which she begins to feel actually sorry for her, seeing herself in Beth.
Although in a relationship, it is superficial at best, with Leah only interested in Xerox when she dresses up as X-Ray. On the other hand, Xerox is very much in love with Leah, will to kill anyone that threatens their relationship.
In both Fracture and Shattered she is depicted as somewhat envious of Unten's role as leader. In Fracture she battled him and his group before "Abaddon" started showing up. This forces the two to work together.
In Shattered, she is depicted as being in a court case where she is being tried by Unten and many of the characters seen in Fracture. She manages to come out innocent in all of this, and later shows up to take over Hell but gets tossed into the Wasteland where she later berates Unten, taking over his role. Although he returns, there seems to be no hard feelings from him about it.
In the New Fantendoverse, the two seem to have a rivalry that develops further and further into Season One of Fantendo Now. She calls him a lot of condensing nicknames and seems to have the idea she is meant to be leader of the group. This causes friction between the two, and when Unten finally "wins" in Prom Night, he gloats about in front of Leah's face. Further teasing comes from Leah's memories of the Golden Age Fantendoverse, constantly pulling up embarrassing shit he did that he doesn't remember happening at all. However, Leah has been helpful to Unten from time to time and likewise the same the other way around. At least... for now.
In her Spareverse appearances, she is the one who brought back his arm, although denies it a lot. For whatever reason, she doesn't remember repairing his arm, believing it to always be there. When they meet later in the series, she doesn't seem to recall him at all or answer questions about how the arm came back, saying "it was always there".
Although Reese is in love with Leah, she doesn't reciprocate his feelings. During the events of Shattered, however, she took advantage of this and used him as her assistant after X-Ray was kidnapped. Over the course of the story, Reese and Leah have very misaligned conversations, with Leah often getting her way. When Reese attempts to confess to Leah about his love for her, she attacks him violently and seems to still be pissed about it afterwards.
During Chapter 9 of Act 2 of Days of Shattered, Leah visits Giselle Zaman and supposedly stays at her house for a couple hours. The two seem to have become fast friends, considering when Reese found the two they were watching the Super PokeDude Anime in traditional Japanese clothes.
They met in the Graveyard of Gods. Initially a jerk to Tracy who planned to get rid of her after the hike up the mountain, she grew to respect her. However, she was quick to abandon Tracy at any chance she got, usually leaving Tracy to figure out another way.
Also met in Graveyard of Gods. Baal is a false god that initially supported Leah, but upon realizing that she would steal his organs too he began to actively stop her as well.
Also met in Graveyard of Gods. Angie is a servant of God that doesn't take Leah seriously until she comes to the gates, in which she fights her and loses. Angie doesn't like Leah at all and doesn't take her very seriously, often finding her threats empty.

|Taking a break from the usual doctor stuff, Leah has hopped into a kart and gone out on the road! She has awesome speed and acceleration, but her handling abilities are far from best in the world. She shows up in a story mode shared with Rachel, of which she seems not to be aware of.|
- Her themes, according to the creator, are Clams Casino - I'm God and St. Vincent - Surgeon.
- She has had a total of four different canon looks so far (Fantendo Visual Novel: Fracture, Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered, Fantendo - Genesis, Strafe: Warzones.) to reflect how she has changed over time. She initially had a lot of red in her design but eventually this shifted over to blue to reflect her moving on from the Twisted Cross and becoming her own person.
- She has a "do not kill list". On it is a very short list of people she claims she actually cares about.
- Whenever she gets depressed, she binges on roast beef.
- She hates cows, although has saved one from death due to X-Ray's insistence on saving it. It's not sure why she hates cows, likely something linked with her time in The Twisted Cross.
- She carries a suitcase full of vibrators. This suitcase could be seen in "Prom Night"'s beginning. The placement of events suggests she was going to masturbate to X-Ray while she was playing video games.
