Eric Flegal (Leo3680) is the one of the founding members of Jungle Emperor Leo Wiki. He discovered Kimba in 2003, and watched it on a regular basis; two years later, when it disappeared off air, he began to get into other material, such as "Leo the Lion." This was when, at the age of twelve, he started write his own fan fiction. His first story was 12 pages long, the second was 36, and the third ended up being his first novel at 198 pages.

From 2005-2011, his works were JEL fan-fiction, but by then, it had evolved so much that he took a year hiatus, and started over from scratch in 2012, creating his fantasy series the Shiro Chronicles.
