Leon's Memoirs:

My name is Leon Scott Kennedy. 

If you're reading this, you're either an old friend who's worried about me, or an assassin who's been sent out to kill me. Whatever the case, what you're about to read is a glimpse into the bizarre, horrid, and nightmarish experiences that I've had for the past fifteen years. 

It all started on the night of September 30, 1998. It was to be my first--and only--day as a rookie cop in Raccoon City. I missed my first shift that day because I overslept drinking hard the night before. I rushed into town expecting a serious scolding, but instead found the city engulfed in flames and overrun with mindless, cannibalistic zombies. After running from my life from the rotting freaks, I found help from a survivor named Claire Redfield, who came to town searching for her brother, a STARS member named Chris. The two of us fought our way over to the precinct, only to find that the virus had spread to all of my fellow officers. Trapped inside, Claire and I evaded several monsters, until we rescued a frightened little girl named Sherry Birkin.

Sherry guided us down to the sewers, where the disaster originated. As we ventured, we met a mysterious female spy named Ada Wong. Ada told me that  the Umbrella Company's G-Virus was the catalyst for the fall of Raccoon City, and that Sherry's father Dr. William Birkin was the one who released it. When we discovered the mad scientist, we found his mind and body hideously deformed by his own virus, killing all traces of his humanity. Birkin chased us out of the lab and  into a secret railway that led all the way out of Raccoon City. The three of us escaped by the skins of our teeth, and that bastard Birkin was finally killed when the train exploded. From that moment, Claire and I went our separate ways; she continued to search for her brother, while I decided to look after Sherry. But the peace we enjoyed didn't last long.

A few months later, Sherry and I were abducted by the government because of our knowledge of the Raccoon City catastrophe. They eventually took Sherry into protective custody; it was the last time I would see her again for 14 years. Meanwhile, I was given a deal: use my experience from Raccoon City to become a special agent working to eliminate bioterrorism around the world. It wasn't a hard choice; I owe it to Claire, Ada, and Sherry to make sure another Raccoon City never happens again. Besides, it was either that or the government making sure I never see sunlight again.

The next decade or so, I was sent on dozens of missions worldwide taking down bioterrorist threats. My assignments ranged from taking down a drug lord in South America, to ending a civil war in Eastern Europe, to rescuing the President's daughter from a cult in Spain (God, she was a pain in the ass). Most recently, I teamed up with a bunch of friends both old and new, to uncover a massive conspiracy by Neo-Umbrella and their insane CEO Derek Simmons.

I won't tell you where I am currently, but I think by now you got the whole idea. If you're still worried about me, please don't worry. I'm still alive and fighting the good fight. If you're still determined to kill me, come and get me if you want. But you better bring your A-game, because I won't hesitate to fight back. Either way, now you know my whole story. It's up to you to decide what to do with it.
