Leo is said to be the "smartest man alive" as his quest for finding a cure to the virus has greatly progressed within the past decade. While continuing his studies at the Campus Colony, he was requested by the Civic Republic to be taken to a research facility in New York to teach his findings for the greater good of humanity. Confirming the initial suspicions from his daughters, Leo has now found himself in grave danger at the hands of the organization.
