Leavis is a character in the HD Universe and minor character in The Lost and Damned.

Description

Leavis works as a maître d' at the Jousters Gentlemen Club, being prominently featured in only two mission cutscenes during which he serves as the first person whom Johnny Klebitz meets whenever he enters the club.

Leavis' sophisticated British speech and choice of profession serving the rich is met with disdain by Johnny, who views him as outdated and subversive.[1] Johnny initial encounter with Leavis and his criticism of his lifestyle leads Leavis to attempt turning him away, until Johnny clarifies that he wishes to see Thomas Stubbs III, to which point Leavis warms up to Johnny and leads him to Stubbs. In their second and final encounter, Johnny engages with Leavis in a brief discussion about whether their lifestyles bring them happiness, and the two resolve that one can be content in their own way.[2]

In the credits, Leavis is credited as "Maitre D", and is voiced by Robert Blumenfeld.

Trivia

  • Leavis's name is a play on the two words "Leave Us". This is ironic, considering that a maître d'is supposed to welcome over people, not send them away.
