Leon Chapter 2 is a chapter of Leon Story in Resident Evil 6. Leon and Helena make it into the Tall Oaks Cathedral, beneath which lie the secrets behind the bioterror incident. Helena renews her vow to tell what she knows as soon as they rescue her sister Deborah, held somewhere in the catacombs.

Plot summary


Leon and Helena find Deborah.

The chapter starts with Leon and Helena riding on the bus they used to escape from Tall Oaks in. After an incident involving a run-in with zombies, the bus topples to a cliff side. Zombies quickly surround the vehicle and drag the late-Peter's girlfriend the rookie police officer away and killed them. Nearby, a truck driver is being attacked by zombies, leading to a disastrous collision resulting in both vehicles being knocked off the cliff and destroyed, not before Leon and Helena are thrown out, however. The sole remaining survivor, the bus driver, is killed when the bus suddenly explodes, having failed to get out.

Leon and Helena make their way up to the church, but are forced to fight back a large number of Zombies when a survivor in the building refuses to let them in. Eventually, the survivors in the cathedral allowed them to enter after fending off some Zombies, allowing Leon and Helena to explore the building's puzzle-filled passageways and traps in order to gain entry into a hidden entrance to an underground chamber. Once they succeed in opening the altar, a Lepotica residing beneath the stairs enters the church floor and begins to infect the refugees before Leon and Helena take it down, with the help of any surviving armed refugees.

Moving on downstairs, they reach what appears to be an elaborate prison - a number of cells incarcerating zombies and other C-Virus creatures. Searching for a woman named Deborah, who Helena refuses to answer who she is and her relation to the case, the two stumble onto a research chamber containing footage of a chrysalid in a videotape entitled "Happy Birthday, Ada Wong", which reveals a woman identical in appearance to Ada Wong being birthed from the cocoon. According to Helena, none of these were here three days prior, indicating that she really had been there recently. Deeper in the laboratory, they finally discover Deborah - Helena's sister - who began to experience intense pain. While escorting her to safety, they bump into the real Ada Wong. This meeting takes place just before Deborah succumbs to her C-Virus infection. She mutated into a being capable of growing huge arachnid appendages and fought the trio, in which Helena tried to calm her down, with little to no avail. The trio attempted to escape Deborah using a minecart, but Deborah would chase them down, causing the minecart to crash. Leon and Ada are separated from Helena and her mutated sister, now consumed by the instinct to kill. They ruptured Deborah's appendage, leading her to her demise just when Helena grabbed Deborah's hand. Helena promised to destroy Simmons and avenged Deborah's death, before letting her fall to the depths.

Helena then reveals to Leon and Ada how Simmons took her and Deborah hostage and threatened to harm Deborah. Helena agreed to help as they took Deborah away, believing that her cooperation would save her sister. Ada claimed to know Simmons and how he would behave. She leaves them as Hannigan contacts Leon and Helena. Leon asks if Simmons is there but before they can say anything other than warning her, Simmons makes his appearance.
