Leofric is a Saxon Military man and warrior who serves Alfred. He is the uncle of Osferth. Weathered and worldly, Leofric is straight talking, uncomplicated, but a reasonable man. He initially dislikes Uhtred, whom he nicknames ‘Arseling’ but a close bond is soon struck between crude curmudgeonly Leofric and fellow warrior Uhtred. Leofric dies in battle at Ethandun, where he personally kills the traitor Wulfhere.
After meeting Osferth, Uhtred recalls his dead friend and says that "Leofric was a great man".
