Overcast Bolt? 😂— AJ (@grundercover) June 21, 2021
St. Leo is the calm one: the balance— Angel Ford (@sun_conure) June 20, 2021
I feel like St Leo got shortchanged. I know it's Bolt's middle name but Lightning and Thunder, then St Leo. Feels wrong— Author Sasha Strachan (@sasha_author) June 20, 2021
