He is portly, but don’t let the size confuse you, he is strong. His black hair is in a "high and tight" military cut, but when it grows out you can tell it's thinning from front to back. His facial hair is never more than stubble protruding from his strong chin. His red non-human eyes are mirror images of each other. His smile, when he does show it, is genuinely happy and lights up his determined, slightly round face. His nose is small and supports specs that seem to slide down at the most in opportune times.
Len has an almost insatiable desire to learn and pass that knowledge on to others. Whenever he is not in a briefing or on the battlefield, Len is reading or watching holos to learn something new. However, this habit sometimes makes it appear he is easily distracted or not paying attention.
Through a combination of preparing, studying, and analyzing, Len Iode creates detailed battle plans and tries to think two steps ahead of the enemy. At times, however, this can lead to Len Iode creating complicated schemes that can baffle less intelligent subordinates.
The Jedi are selfless, caring only about others. Len Iode is compassionate, brave and always strives to represent the common good. He tries to help everyone he can, even at his own expense, and is a fine role model for others to follow.
Len has a great sense of humor, especially for a Chiss and enjoys a good joke. Occasionally he will participate in some. However due to his discipline and training, he more often than not suppresses those feelings unless around those he trusts or if he can't stifle the giggle quick enough.
When it comes to a fight, some like to posture, some like to act tough, some like to dance around and go through all sorts of fancy footwork. Len Iode? Len Iode doesn't bother with exotic battle stances, intricate maneuvers, or super-secret tactics. Len Iode, when cornered into a fight, prefers the ancient technique of a good kick to the nuts. And if that won't work, either because the enemy is a woman or has balls of steel, Len Iode isn't beyond pulling a few more cheap tricks out of the bag. Granted, Len Iode won't be winning any medals for nobility or any prestige for a unique fighting style or a superb maneuver, but Len Iode will still be winning, the best and most dirty way he knows how.
Len Iode will try not to go into any situation head-on. Even in the thick of combat, he is constantly making adjustments to his tactics to get the drop on the enemy. However, when the situation demands or the enemy forces his hand, he will attack the enemy directly.
