Cleon was the co-founder of The Warriors and Warlord prior to Swan. He is African American and wears a leopard skin do-rag on his head. He founded the Warriors with Vermin on April 16, 1978 when the pair left The Destroyers. He picked out eight fellow Warriors to head up to The Bronx for the meeting with Cyrus and all the other gangs. Unfortunately, The Rogues framed Cleon for killing Cyrus and he is killed by the Gramercy Riffs. In a deleted scene from the film, Cleon is shown talking to the gang, and why he picked them out of a street family of 120, plus affiliates. In this scene we also see Lincoln, Cleon's girlfriend, who has a bad feeling about them going to The Bronx. He is named after the ancient Greek ruler. His performance in The Warriors is a short and memorable role that stands out for the amount screen time he had. He is a legendary actor that possesses the true gift of acting. He is real. He came out of retirement for Vamp Bikers
