A sus 36 años, Leon S. Kennedy es el agente más respetado del gobierno de los Estados Unidos y puede contactar directamente con el mismo presidente. Los horrores que se vio obligado a presenciar durante el incidente de Raccoon City, propiciaron en él un odio profundo por el bioterrorismo.
Aunque se comporta de forma racional y con tranquilidad, no es apático en absoluto. Se toma su trabajo muy en serio, toma la iniciativa durante sus misiones y arriesga su vida para salvar a los inocentes. De vez en cuando, le sale su lado sarcástico y vuelve a ser aquel policía novato y entregado que no perdía el sentido del humor ni siquiera en los momentos más difíciles.
At 36 years of age, Leon S. Kennedy is the most respected agent working for the U.S. government, reporting directly to the president himself.
The horrors he witnessed as a result of a biohazard outbreak, known as the Raccoon City Incident, left him with a deep-rooted hatred of bioterrorism and those who would use it.
While his demeanor is calm and rational, it should not be mistaken for apathy. He will take the initiative on any mission he's been assigned, often putting himself in danger in order to save the innocent.
He takes his missions seriously, making decisions cautiously and logically. From time to time, however, his sardonic wit will surface, recalling his time as a good-natured rookie cop with a sense of duty who was able to maintain his sense of humor even in tough times.
Leon also played a large part in the founding of the Division of Security Operations (DSO). Below is a report sent to Leon from the president.
I am writing to report that the creation of the new organization we discussed, the Division of Security Operations, is officially underway.
The bioterrorism we have seen in recent years has surpassed the level the organizations currently in operation can cope with. Your advice was invaluable in establishing the DSO.
Agents will be under my direct authority and support will be provided by the FOS. You will be its first founding member. I am sure you will make our nation proud and do all that you can to protect its people.
Together we can rid the world of these terrorists, along with the disgusting B.O.W.s they created.
President of the United States of America
