Leon used to be an amateur writer who finally got his first book contract. For this book, he wanted to portray his own manifesto on the quality of life for people living in the Eastern Hemisphere. To fully immerse in his creation he flew over to Chernarus. 27 days into his trip, the apocalypse begins.
Going back to his past, he was from Lincoln, Nebraska - he liked playing chess, reading and, to his dismay, his father Ben used to take him to the shooting range, to which he was a quick study, even though he didn't enjoy it. His interests were in books, his favorite being Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. One day at the range, the gun blew up in his hand, permanently damaging his right hand, putting him under a twice-daily painkiller medication. Failure to respect the regime will result in sharp and continuous pains, shaky hands and blurry vision.
After the Breakout, he will be seen trying to keep the balance between his search for the medicine and surviving a dangerous world with all its external threats.
