Knives loyal follower, Legato's devoted to him and carries out his every wish. He follows Knives cause he knows
he is a superior being, and doesn't care much for the human race. Knives recruited legato after the July incident to make
Vash's life a living hell. From that point on, Legato continues to weave a living nightmare for Vash, not only on his own
but also through the gang of eleven super powered killers who are under his command: the Gung-Ho Guns. Legato himself possesses
dark power: the ability to control people's bodies against their will and these telekinetic powers come from the fact that
he has Vash's left arm. When Knives shot it off, it was attached to Legato. This is why Legato can control other people's
bodies (originally one of Vash's and Knives' powers) and can activate Vash's angel arm the same way Knives did in July. He's
kind of psychotic, using his mind control powers to kill people. But who dosen't love that. He has no sympathy for mankind,
and tries to teach people the pain of living. He loves to hurt people, especially Vash. That's his mission, to make Vash suffer
for all eternity. Himself and The Gung-Ho Guns do a excellant job of it. He forces Vash to use his angel arm and destroy an
entire city even if one of The Gung-Ho Guns is in that city. Legato is a calm, serious, and heartless human but there is one
other unique feature to him and that is how he loves to eat food and you see him doing this throughout the show from a hot
dog, ice cream sunday, or steak. His favorite bit of poetic justice is to make gangs of people who oppose him shoot each other,
and this special power is what finally forces Vash to cross the line. In the end, Legato forces Vash to choose...either Vash
kills him, or Vash's friends die. It's apparent he's ready to die, feeling he is just a pathetic human like the rest and then
he does die by Vash's gun and he dies smiling because he knows that he made Vash break his promise about not to kill any living
thing no matter what. To me Legato is the most evil character besides Knives.
