Leonard is the kind of guy that holds doors open for women, pulls a chair out for his captain and addresses everyone as Miss, Mister or Sir. He is your typical, cheesy, polite, charming gentleman.
When under pressure, stressed or harassed he has a tendency to break down and let all his emotions run wild.
Leonard may complain from time to time about certain tasks, but he takes great pride in his work. He doesn't like doing things the easy or the fast way, he thinks that it’s cheap and that it will only pile up on his workload.
Leon acts somewhat like a dog when it comes to loyalty, do one good deed for him and he'll be a caring friend for life. He'd be a shoulder to cry on, a pillar of support and if he had to, he'd kill knowing it would make a friend happy.
Leonard has a terrible habit of cleaning. He cannot sleep knowing that there is a smudge on a wall or if a picture is hanging crooked. It gets to the point where he doesn't sleep because he is rearranging and cleaning either his room or the kitchen.
Leonard is quiet the social butterfly, though he may act a little shy at first, he is always ready for a chat. He can be a bit of a chatter box once you break through his shell, but he knows when to shut up and listen to what others have to say.
Leonard was born and raised into a family coming from a long line of proud, strong soldiers. Being the first born his life was set, but he wasn't strong and he didn't want to be a soldier, that's what his father wanted. What Leon really wanted was to be a cook, to run his own restaurant, but his father would never allow that, though the only one that truly cared about Leon's dream was his loving mother. She supported him and even taught Leonard how to cook and bake, that was how the two formed their strong bond.
Leonard's Father saw this as a disgrace; his first born son that would carry on the family name would be a cook? He would surely ruin their name.
When Leonard turned six his younger brother, Marcus, was born. Leon saw this as a chance to step up as the older brother and protect his new brother, and when he was old enough, cook for him. His father, however, saw this as a chance to raise a stronger, better son to carry on the family name.
It was at this time when Leonard started his training to be a soldier. He was told that they would start his training when he was young, but he was only six, it was a terrible strain on a child. Each day he would train, and each day he would see the disapproving looks his father gave him.
Every day after his training he would always meet with his mother in the kitchen and they would cook together, but sadly his mother grew ill, deathly ill. He would make her soup everyday by himself and would feed her; he had stopped his training so he would be able to look after her. It was also around this same time when his brother Marcus started his training.
Leonard tried so hard to keep her well and healthy, but sadly she passed away in her sleep when Leon was fourteen.
Leonard’s father of course blamed him, saying that his cooking finished her off, but he didn't believe his words, he never did, it was the recipes that she had taught him.
At age eighteen, Leonard was signed up as a soldier by his father, as much as he argued that he didn't want this, his father never listened. He trained hard and was forced to work even harder, he was named the strongest newcomer, he had talent and was getting stronger by the day but he hated every minute of it.
In his spare time Leon would either bake or try to spend time with his brother, but the distance between them was far too great, and each time they would talk it would end in an argument.
Leon's father was pleased with his progress, he heard wind of soldiers being shipped off to take down pirates and he of course signed Leonard up. Leonard argued with his father telling him that he didn’t want to be shipped out, that he wasn’t strong enough, but in truth, he was scared. Once again, his father brushed off his argument and pleading, so forced to pack his belongings Leon set sail.
After a few weeks, finally getting his sea legs and no longer that sea sick, he made his way to the ship's kitchen. Disgusted, by his standards, by its state he cleaned up the mess and unable to contain himself, started cooking. From that day on he would almost ALWAYS be found in the ship's kitchen cooking or cleaning.
Leonard faced many battles and made many dishes while on the Wellenreiter, and made many memories, some he would cherish and some he would wish to forget.
Hearing that they would return home he had gotten mixed feelings, happy to be home but hating the fact that they would see his family. When greeted with the king's armada, he knew something was wrong, he knew he wouldn't be able to return home now. He fought for his crew mates and his captain.
Now at age twenty-five, Leonard is now somewhat glad that they didn't return home otherwise he wouldn't be able to go on these wonderful adventures, but most of all, he wouldn't be cooking. He has done some things that he regrets, but he wouldn't be the man he is today if it wasn't for those regrets.
