Ledňàček, (レッドニャチエク) Rybárik in the Slovakian translation of the comic, and "Led" for his friends, is a cheerful and carefree young wolf, member and second-in-command of the group of Chakra Heroes. He is C.Y.'s best friend and is always there to help her whenever she needs. Along with her and the rest of the Gang, he is encharged by Inabe to retrieve the powerful Destiny Sword.
Physical appearanceEditLednacek is an athletic, average built wolf, with strong, robust legs and a long, slightly bent muzzle. Led has long curly fur, more visible on his head, chest, shoulders, cheeks, elbows and tail. His main coat is iridescent green in colour, while the rest of his fur is bright, clashing orange on his legs, ears and underbelly. He also features splotches of black on his legs, a stripe of the same colour on his spine, and a mask on his face, which is also black. His eartips are black too, and the inside of his ears is white, like a splotch on his throat, his tailtip and all his four paws. His colour scheme and distribution resembles that of a kingfisher, a bird Led also takes his name from. Led has four tufts of fur on his head, which are the same green colour as his coat and become white on the tips, with a small ring of black around them. His tail is green in its upper part and has a gradient of yellow-to-red tones in its underside. It is very fluffy and often carried curled on his flank. Finally, Led's eyes are yellow in colour.
PersonalityEditDespite his dark childhood, Led is a very cheerful and carefree wolf. He enjoys living a simple, peaceful life along with those he considers a family: the small pack formed by Shirotora, Near and Urashima. Thoughtless and a bit naive, Led enjoys the company of his friends. Being used to not worrying about dangers, he is not concerned about what might happen to them.
He also seems to ignore Shirotora's feeling towards him, which makes him appear a bit clumsy, but he actually does care about her and the rest of the pack.
When engaged in a fight, in the past, Led was well aware of his weakness towards a powerful enemy, which was enough to prevent him from battling and made him afraid of his opponents. But after the meeting with C.Y. and the receiving of his new powers, Led took courage from his new partner and became brave, sometimes even bold, if that meant protecting the ones he loved. He now is a very strong and skilled fighter, the best among the Heroes, which also makes him a reference for the other wolves in the group.
C.Y.'s arrival definitely changed his life, as his character has totally been modified by her. The carefree and insecure yearling left place to a confident, brave, intelligent young adult, who can always come up with brilliant plans and convincing theories when needed. Lednacek, along with Hielo, is the mind of the group.
After one year spent with the Heroes, Led became responsible, reasonable, clever and fiercely loyal to C.Y. and the others. He always gives his best in order to keep the group together, and, despite being the highest in rank along with C.Y., he never abuses his position.
Before the events of the comicLed shares his fur colour with his father, and his overall body structure with his mother. Unlike C.Y.'s and her parents, the three formed a very united family, and ever since the day Led was born, his parents did not dare to leave him alone for a second. They did not have a pack, and the little wandering family often changed their den by entering territories dwelled by other wolves. Upon moving on a territory adjacent to Urashima's one, the small family's lucky star abandoned them. The owner of the territory they decided to settle in refused to share his dens, and he attacked Led's parents with his pack. During the battle, Led managed to escape and ran as far as he could, seeking help. However, being still very young and inexpert, he was quickly overcome by fatigue, and, not finding anyone, he collapsed on a shore and surrendered to sleep. He felt very unhappy, and powerless towards what had happened, despite being just a pup, he would have loved to help his parents somehow. Some hours later, an old sand-coloured wolf and his pack approached him. It was Urashima, along with Asami, Shirotora and Near. They also seemed to have suffered a loss, Led could notice, because they all looked grieved. After some initial incomprehension, the pack decided to take Led as a member, because Urashima did not want to abandon him while he was in need.
Led grew up into a carefree youngster, apparently forgetting about his puphood accident. Now he had someone to care for, and who cared for him, and he was probably too young to carry a trace of what he had seen in the past. Shirotora's favourite playmate and a skilful hunter, Led soon gained a high rank in the pack, completely ignoring that Shirotora had a crush on him.
After Asami's death, Led helped old man Urashima take care of the pack and bear with his grief.
As of Chapter OneEditOne day, Led met a mysterious stranger on his shore. He did not know who she was, and neither did the rest of his pack. Shortly after that encounter, the evil wolf Steel attacked the small pack, and before he could harm anybody, the mysterious grey wolf appeared again and saved Led. For a moment, Led saw the events of his family being ripped apart in his head, and his past came back to his mind. Urashima, Shirotora and Near were his family now. He wouldn't have made the same mistake twice!
Despite his courage and willpower, Led was no match for Steel's strength, and he got pinned down. Only Urashima's intervention set him free, and during a moment of distraction, Steel actually managed to kill the old wolf. Led and the others' grief was great, but they did not expect the stranger's reaction would be so explosive: the stranger was wrapped in mysterious smoke and it attacked Steel, nearly killing him. While Led was thanking the stranger for saving him, Steel attacked once more and removed the turban off her head. Only then Led noticed why she was wearing it: the she-wolf had three eyes!The stranger ran away, and after a moment of shock, Led suddenly felt sad for her: this was not the way to treat someone who had just saved his life! He followed her, and properly thanked her for her help. At that moment, Led could actually see how beautiful she was. Third eye or not, that wolf had the power to make his heart beat so fast! He wanted to reassure her, and let her into his pack.
That evening, at Urashima's burial ceremony, Led made the solemn promise of not making the same mistake twice: he would have travelled the world and stopped all criminals from doing evil things to the weak. Surprisingly enough, the stranger seemed to share his feelings, and was willing to accompany him. Despite being sad of leaving Shirotora and Near, something kept telling Led that he was doing the right thing, and to put faith in the stranger.
That night, on the shore, the stranger finally revealed to him as C.Y.
As of Chapter TwoEditLed makes his debut in Chapter Two as the Chakra Heroes show up on top of the rock to scare off Red and his minions. Led is the first to attack, by causing an earthquake that confuses the enemies. He is later seen after Motyl introduces him to Inabe and his pack. Led sits there and listen to the conversation about the Destiny Sword, and after Inabe mentions having been saved by Furie, he languidly looks at C.Y. and agrees with him. When the Heroes agree to search the Destiny Sword, Led tells Inabe that the Chakra Headquarters are located near the southern end of the forest, in front of the sea. Once they leave Inabe and reach the Headquarters, the Heroes start meditating on the prophecy the black and white wolf left with: you will find the Sword in the deepest of depths. While the Heroes talk among each other, Orca suggests that the "deepest of depths" of the prophecy might be the ocean, and Led has an illumination: an underwater cave. Led assumes it might be Konohana Island, since the isle is full of caves that reach down to its core. The Heroes agree to check it out the following morning.
Once on the island, Led suggests splitting into groups to look for a deep cave, but later Cheetah offers the Heroes to enter a particular cave, that looks "dark and sinister" to him. As they explore the insides, the Heroes stop at a crossroads along the path, and C.Y. senses a presence coming from one of the tunnels ahead. Led tries to stop her, but has to deal with Orca and Cheetah, who are scuffling. Once the Hero catches up to C.Y., she tells him that she can see a shiny wolf in front of her, the same one that she saw on the shore one year before. Led tells her that there is no one, except for an old, broken statue. He assumes the room they are in had to be a shrine once, but now it has fallen apart. As the other Heroes catch up to them, C.Y. recognizes the inscription "Shiranui" on the pedestal, and assumes this might be his shrine. After Motyl accidentally uses her powers on the statue, and the Destiny Sword finally appears, Led says that he doesn't care what just happened, and suggests to take what they came for. As the Heroes go for the Sword, a laugh can be heard in the cave.
As of Chapter ThreeEditLed first appears in Chapter Three when he ran forward to C.Y., who was trying to catch the Sword, but didn't because the blade was pointing at her. However, Led managed to push her out of the way just in time before the sword could stab her. As he makes sure her if she is okay, he asks why she didn't use her powers to dodge the sword. After C.Y. reveals that her powers aren't working, she cries on Led's shoulder. Led comforts her by telling her to never say that she's useless, as he believes she isn't. Later, Led appears alongside C.Y. at the time they, along with the rest of the gang except Orca, are trapped by the Zodiac Demons. Then, C.Y. gives him a signal, leading him to slam the ground with one of his paws, creating an earthquake in the cave. While the Heroes escape, Led warns the Gang about a gorge farther ahead and the group brakes to a stop. After the Heroes discover that Orca fell down that very gorge, and after Cheetah climbs down it, Led has a brief argument with Hielo, and Kuma manages to prevent them from fighting. Led is seen later in the Misty Tunnel, as he comments that the plume emanating from Orca is not smoke, but steam. Led then agrees to leave Orca behind and to look for the Sword, but has to think again when Cheetah offers to stay with her. While the Heroes walk through the underground forest, Led mentions that the Zodiac Demons are much more organized than they look. When the group reaches the forest, Led, like the others, is astonished to see so many trees underground, and wonders how they mange to be so lush without getting enough light and water. Later, when Kobura attempts to ambush C.Y. and fails, Led imagines the rustling in the trees might have been caused by a squirrel. As the Heroes reach the Origin Stones, Led recognizes the symbols of the Chakras, and tells the rest of the group what each symbol means. Led is later seen during the fight that follows, as he dodges one of Hest's kicks. Later, asC.Y. transforms into Ajna, Led is still locked in a fight with Hest, but soon leaves him after hearing about Jackal's knowledge of the Heroes' powers. This gives Hest the chance to pin the colourful wolf down. Led is released thanks to Cheetah and Orca's combined attack, which manages to throw chaos among the Demons. He is later seen helping C.Y. get up and sustaining her weight as the Heroes make it outside the cave, on a retreat. When Hielo asks him about the Sword, Led answers that there is no way the Heroes can win against the Demons at present time, and that they'd have to return for it. He then orders Motyl to use her powers to help the Heroes climb up. As the Heroes get out of the cave, Led takes Orca from Cheetah, since they are going to swim back to shore. After C.Y. is hit by the giant wave, Led, in a moment of desperation, almost forgets he was carrying Orca, and swims for her, but is stopped by Hielo, who suggests Led to send some other Hero instead. Led does indeed choose Hielo, and orders Kuma to keep Cheetah warm.
As of Chapter FourEditLed is first seen at the beginning of the chapter, and he is the first wolf C.Y. sees as she wakes up. He immediately helps his friend get up and she thanks him. He then stares at her as C.Y. announces danger is coming. Led is seen looking perplexed while C.Y. recites the prophecy she has heard, and clashes with Hielo when this shows himself skeptical about her words. C.Y.'s intervention manages to calm the two wolves down. He then recalls the rest of the Heroes that Inabe had warned them about a Demon able to enter the body of other wolves. When Kobura comes into the picture, Led discusses with C.Y. about his reliability, and silently agrees with her judgement. He is seen again later as C.Y. tells the story of how the Chakra Heroes came to be.
As of Chapter FiveEdit
As of Chapter SixEdit
In side storiesEdit
- "You're no monster to my eyes"
- —Let to C.Y., Chapter 1
In exchange for this, Led grew into C.Y.'s comforter, being there whenever she needed advice, or just love and sympathy. Being C.Y. emotively fragile, Led would become her opposite and develop a strong personality, not allowing anyone or anything to harm her.
Some difficulties in the couple arose as C.Y. gradually grew autonomous and independent, making Led slightly feel put aside. The tow will eventually clarify this inconvenience and their relationship shall gain from this.
- "I've never fallen in love with ANYBODY!"
- —Led to Shiro, Chapter 1
When Led clearly stated that he "had never fallen in love with anybody", Shirotora felt the world weighing upon her. She grew sadder, and she also started considering that Led did not want her as his mate. Later, at Urashima's ceremony, Shiro's heartbreaking words made Led feel ashamed of what he had said. He did not know that she loved him that much, and he had realized just then. But he had taken his decision, and in addition, the stranger grey wolf attracted him so much. Led gave an affectionate lick to Shirotora as a last goodbye, and interrupted their relationships by going away with C.Y..
- "You could have kept that to yourself to begin with."
- —Led to Hielo, Chapter 3
- "We live in a world of beauty and majesty, a world the Great God who brings the Sun found worth protecting. However, there are some, like Steel, who ignore our past and only aim to cause pain and suffering."

Powers and abilitiesEditAs of Chapter One, Led was a normal wolf and did not have any powers, except being strong enough to lift Steel and throw him at a tree.
However, during the one-year gap between Chapter One and Chapter Two, Led developed new powers, related to his Sahasrara Chakra: he grew great intelligence and wits, and as an element, he was assigned Earth, specifically Vibrations. In Chapter Two, we see Led easily creating a strong earthquake by just slamming his paw on the ground.
The spot where his paw lands becomes the epicentre of a series of seismic waves that spread in a quite large area. The stronger the slam, the larger the area of the earthquake. Led can also create vibrations with his hind paws, by kicking against a wall, or a tree, or an enemy.
Surprisingly, the waves he creates affect everything on the field, but only bring damage to the enemies, because Led's Chakra is able to direct the seism right toward them.
The techniques the Heroes used are unnamed in the comic. However, they do have a name to be distinguished.
Quill Wave: Led generates a seism without using his paws. This seism is much weaker than Slamming Paw.
Slamming Paw: Led creates a powerful earthquake by slamming his paw on the ground. The more violent the slam, the stronger the earthquake. A variation of this technique includes him jumping from a high place and landing with all four paws, resulting in a devastating quake.
Rock Fall: A slide of rocks detaches from a nearby wall and sweeps enemies away. It can also obstruct the entrance of caves and tunnels.
- In the internet world, Led is considered a "sparkledog"
- His body shape resembles that of a siberian husky, but his colour is the same as that of a kingfisher.
- Among his favourite activities, Led prefers fishing.
- His full name is pronounced: "Led-nee'ah-check", with the stress on "nee'ah"
- The name "Ledňàček", in Czech, literally means "Ice creature", and his nickname, "Led", is Czech for "ice".
- This makes Led and Hielo share the word "ice" in their name, as the latter's name also means "ice".
- One of the options for Led's name was "Eisvogel", the German for "Kingfisher".
- Coincidentally, this word also has the term "ice" in it: "Eisvogel" literally means "ice bird"
