Lenny Manolito is a Human Bard and one of the three player characters in the (K)nights MaxFunDrive bonus campaign. He is played by Clint McElroy. His goal is to open his own venue to put Tom Collins out of business, due to a beef he's had with him ever since he was fired and blackballed by him. Until that day comes, Lenny will always make sure to go out of his way to make Tom miserable. Even to his own detriment.
Early Life Edit
Lenny was once a famous musician in the Jaden-Province region. However, he ended up doing something that not only got him fired from performing at Tom Collin's bar, but also black balled from every other establishment in the Commons. This would force him to perform on the street corners for copper coils.
Powers and Abilities Edit
Class Features Edit
- Bardic Inspiration: Lenny can inspire others through stirring words or music, giving that person or creature one Bardic Inspiration die, a d6. With that die, once within the next 10 minutes, the person can roll the die and add the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw it makes.
- Jack of All Trades: Lenny can add half his proficiency bonus, rounded down, to any ability check he makes that doesn’t already include his proficiency bonus.
- Song of Rest: Lenny can use soothing music or oration to help revitalize his wounded allies during a short rest. If he or any friendly creatures who can hear his performance regain hit points at the end of the short rest by spending one or more Hit Dice, each of those creatures regains an extra 1d6 hit points.
- Expertise: Lenny chooses two of his skill proficiencies. His proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check he makes that uses either of the chosen proficiencies.

- The Fagen Blaster is named after Donald Jay Fagen, an American musician, singer-songwriter, and co-founder of the band Steely Dan.
- His name is definitely based off Lin-Manuel Miranda, a friend of the four McElroy's, who was also in the second part of the second episode of (K)nights.
- This lead to a lot of confusion in the second part when both Clint and Lin responded to "Lenny".
