Kilan Leoness is a large, somewhat robotic "liger"-like creature.
Kilan Leoness is used by Koh Grif.
- Type: Defense and Occupied
Kilan Leoness is equipped with BakuTech Convert System in which the Cross on its tail can be converted. Its low center of gravity and metal features makes all shooting attacks powerless against it.
