|"Even Leitha, the beautiful night-black three legged she-wolf had grown her fourth."|
|— Narrator on Leitha after the great mending in Spirit Wolf|
Leitha was a black, three-legged dire she-wolf (Canis Dirus), and was a member of the Watch. Even though she only had three legs, Leitha was said to be one of the best jumpers at the Watch. Although she was mended, she was killed in the earthquake, but it is unknown how.

This article contains plot details from one or more of the books.
Leitha was a female dire wolf, described as a nimble night-black wolf with a glossy pelt. She was a malcadh; having three legs, although she was an amazing jumper. She very likely had the green eyes of the true wolves of the Beyond. Leitha had either a black or brown nose.
Although not formally appearing, Leitha was at the gaddergnaw with the other Watch wolves.
Exploring the Watch upon arrival, Faolan sees Leitha do a perfect backwards somersault, despite her deformity, and he feels ashamed that he considered himself special for his jumps. They also mention that Leitha was one of the best jumpers in the history of the Watch.
Leitha was killed by the earthquake that killed the Fengo, Twistling, Snowdon, Colleen, and many other wolves, but it is not mentioned how. The Great Mending gave her a fourth leg either just before or just after she died.
