Born in the United Kingdom in 1994, growing up in a heavily working class, post-industrial, area of Salford. Leo's family struggled to get by, yet this didn't stop his parents trying to get the best education for him, and fortunately he was educated at a grammar school. Surrounded by a communities that struggled in the neglected areas of North West England; it was during his formative teenage years that Leo became increasingly interested in politics and his views became increasingly left-wing. Searching for reasons why the people around him and across the world had to suffer. His views did not fit in well with the education he was receiving and as a result he often rebelled against his schools authority. He performed well in subjects, such as History, Geography, arts and Literature. Moving on to study 'War Studies' at King's College , London. War Studies enabled Leo to more intricately understand the connection between politics and military areas; reading into the development and significance of tactics and military theory. His dissertation covered 'The Development of the Red Army & Significance of Leon Trotsky, 1918-1924'. In London Leo was exposed to the full extent of urban isolation and inequality that the economic system caused; only serving to further fuel his revolutionary desires. He vehmentently opposes and often getting into fights with political opponents, particularly far-right and fascist groups.
Upon finishing university he found himself becoming involved in revolutionary Trade Union organisations such as the International Workers of the World (IWW), quickly rising to senior posts in the organisation, enabled him to travel to the different branches the Union had around the world. As a result of this his last trip took him to give a speech and help aid in industrial action with the IWW branch in Chernarus when the outbreak occured. In the ensuing chaos he lost contact with his fellow union organisers and as a result was stranded in Chernarus.
