Leo grew up as a bad kid and had a reputation in HighSchool for getting in fights and selling drugs he was later expelled a year after his brother was expelled for getting caught selling crack to someone in the washroom, Leo and his brother turned to the streets and started doing small crimes like jacking cars and robbing corner stores, years later they progressed to doing crimes like small banks robberies and hits for the mafia. They were starting to become the top dogs in the mafia and their father wanted them to start another branch in a country called Chernarus but before they could start preparing Leo and his brother's hideout was raided by the FBI and he was arrested and charged for Armed Robbery and Murder. Leo and his brother spent some time in jail before Malik told him that there was a snitch involved in the case that got them arrested and that they found out his name and all his information. Leo had a phone smuggled in for them to order a hit on the judges and lawyers that where trying to send them to prison for life, after they had the lawyers killed they got some lower mafia members to bride the guards to help break them out, One night a guard showed up at there cell and gave them guard uniforms and key so Leo and his brother where able to walk out of the prison without catching any attention, After Leo and Malik escaped they headed to another one of the safehouses the mafia had in the city and got some new clothes and some pistoles, Leo and Malik where just about ready to leave the country but Malik would not leave unless the snitch was dead, so they jumped in the car and pulled up to the snitched house and blasted him before leaving the county headed to Chernarus, once they made it to chernarus they started looking for small organized gangs and took all the members into the manarello mafia but after 4 years of them being in chernarus they started seeing things like they never have before, people where being eaten in the streets and bloody people growling like animals. After a couple of months passed the mafia in chernarus was going stronger then ever they had started collecting guns and ammo and would trade them for things like drugs, vehicles, and food.
