One of the main characters of the Resident Evil series, debuting in Resident Evil 2.
Leon Scott Kennedy is a rookie cop assigned in Raccoon Police Department (R.P.D.). In 1998, Leon would later meet Claire Redfield and arrive together in Raccoon City. Realizing the chaos brought by the outbreak, the two became separated and arrive at the city's police station to seek shelter. The two arrived at the precinct for their own purposes as they find for possible ways to escape the city as the station was also swarmed by the undead.
After the events of Raccoon City, Leon departs and was apprehended by the US military, eventually becoming a STRATCOM agent alongside with a fellow agent, Jack Krauser.
