Leinore is a human from Innistrad, who was elected to be the Autumn Sovereign of the Harvesttide festival.


Among the many ancient Harvesttide traditions is the appointment of a Harvesttide Sovereign. The witches of the Dawnhart Coven elect an outsider to serve as marshal of the festivities. The Sovereign's role is to establish a connection between the witches and the common folk of Innistrad. Most importantly, a truly excellent Sovereign infuses the witches' rituals with additional power, greatly contributing to their success.

When it came time to select this season's Sovereign, Leinore was the obvious choice. Known for her love of all things festive and communal, one could easily identify an event hosted by Leinore by the abundance of food, drink, and somewhat excessive decorations. While she fully understands the festival's significance in restoring the balance between night and day, she refuses to let that dampen the mood. Her hard work instills both the witches and townsfolk with hope, and that hope inspires them all through the darkest night.[1]

Midnight Hunt[]

During the preparations for the Festival, Leinore and her younger sister Sinnia found a mask in the forest. Contrary to the wishes of her older sister, Sinnia wore the mask and ended up possessed by the powers of the witch Saryth. One night Leinore followed her sister into the forest and discovered along with Katilda that Saryth was using Sinnia to summon a creature called the Coiled One. The ritual was impeded by Leinore and Katilda, and that were able to save Sinnia.[2]
