Leon was born in Britain to German and British parents. His mother came from the blood line of Devereux, a family whose roots were rich and deep in Britains history. He grew up as a normal child but in a dysfunctional family. When he was born, his parents were arguing and edging towards divorce. It finally happened when he was four but neither of them wanted custody of him. He was sent to an orphanage where he was adopted by a German couple who lovingly raised him. His new father was a doctor and he would often bring Leon into his office because his new mother had work and hadnt set up a babysitter yet. These long days of being in a doctors office intrigued him and made him ask constant questions about anything medical. This made his new father excited and a strong bond was created between them.
He entered a German elementary school when he was six and gained an education. During this time, many family members of his new family came and revealed themselves to him that they were mostly musicians. They taught him various instruments but the ones he was most fond of were a harmonica and guitar. He would often bring a harmonica with him to school and play it each time he was let out for recess.
While everything was quiet and normal, he had forgotten where he had actually came from when his original father, Thomas Schulze came back to claim Leon. Joseph, Leons adopted father quickly looked into the situation and had Thomas arrested. Once Leon asked, he explained that Thomas was involved in very bad things and he didnt want to see his son involved with it. At this point his carefree attitude turned colder as he traced his roots back and began to blame his original parents on anything.
One of Leons uncles gave him the opportunity to go to America when he was thirteen. Leon agreed and followed his uncle and his band to America and soon learned they were going on tour for their music. Once in the US, Leon had a love-hate relationship with the country. He adored the people and loved how the country was a big cooking pot of the world. On the other hand, he hated the country for the peoples attitudes and various laws that stopped him from doing things that was alright in Germany but shunned upon in the US. He stayed for two years until his uncle had to go back to Germany. He requested to stay in the US and he was placed in a private boarding school for boys in California when he was seventeen.
During a PE class he met Riena. She had successfully infiltrated the school and was jumping around like some sort of spy. This intrigued Leon and made him follow her as she explored the school. She could come back various times and talk to him. He confided his family situation to her and she expressed why he was so angry at his original parents when he had loving ones now. He seemed dumbfounded but explained that the reason must have been he wanted to blame everything on them when it was his fault if he didnt do something right. From that point, his emotion lightened and he became carefree once more. Riena invited him to join her on her journey across the country but Leon was able to convince her that he wanted to go back to Germany for a while. After patiently waiting for Leon to graduate from boarding school, they smuggled themselves out of the country and into Europe.
Leon is the main provider for Riena as she constantly seeks him for medical help for her mental problems.
