Introduction

xxxxxOverview of your character goes here.

Description

xxxxx5'11", lean, with warm tan skin and a clear complexion. Leo has a thick shock of straight black hair, usually kept trimmed short. Wide deep-set dark eyes, square jaw, sharply defined cheekbones, a bright warm smile.

Reputation

xxxxxNone generally. Has been at Prometheus around two years now, and within the labs he's been at has a ton of rumours swirling around his Apocalypse Horseman mutation; being a fairly quiet and shy sort, keeping to himself more often than not hasn't done a lot to stop the gossip that he's some kind of Pestilence angel. A lot of talk among labrats and staff alike about what kind of bioweapon he might be, maybe he is going to end the world in a messy plague, maybe he's going to start a zombie apocalypse, maybe he's going to liquefy your organs with Super-Ebola. Despite this, nobody has ever seen him do anything more threatening than look at people with mild disappointment when they cut him in line for lunch.

History

xxxxxBorn in the Philippines and raised there until middle school, when he emigrated to the US with his mother and two siblings. It wasn't a great change -- at home, they'd had stability, a large and supportive extended family, a comfortable culture that they fit into. His aunt over in the States had gotten quite sick, though, and his family came over on tourist visas and never left again, as his mom struggled to support her sister and her sister's children through his aunt's lingering battle with Huntington's. His cousins were a bright spot in his new life in Los Angeles; shy by nature and struggling with English, it was hard for him to fit in at school but his home life was always vibrant, his cousins and siblings close-knit.

xxxxxStill finding his feet in a new culture, he spent a lot of time focusing on things that made more sense to him than the troubling question of How To Socialize. Schoolwork, sports, music; he spent a lot of energy practicing at things where he could see quantifiable progress. His dedication to schoolwork earned him few friends but a scholarship to Boston University, where he studied marine biology and work at the New England Aquarium, first as a volunteer and then as a science educator. His plan was to continue on to grad school back in California where he would be close to home.

xxxxxICE derailed all that -- after being picked up for what was, in fact, a case of completely mistaken identity by the BPD (they were looking for a Latino man twice his age) he nevertheless got on ICE's radar for his lack of documentation. It was the stress and trauma of the detention facility that he was put in that triggered his mutation to show itself more /directly/. Manifested years ago but barely noticeable (he'd always thought he just was particularly lucky when it came to not getting hit by bugs that went around), he triggered an extremely virulent strain of chickenpox in the facility he was in. It was only after transferring him to a different facility en route to deportation and the same oddly resistant strain cropping up, immediately followed by a severe measles outbreak, that a doctor sent to the facility took notice. It took a good deal of sleuthing for Prometheus to get to the bottom of what was actually going on, but once they had isolated the culprit it took very little convincing for ICE to turn him over to Prometheus rather than ship him home.

Powers

xxxxxAbsorbs, stores, mutates, and dispenses pathogens.

Skills

xxxxxHighly academically inclined and with an education to back it up, Leo excels particularly at math and biology. He's a great teacher, though sometimes has a hard time switching from Teaching Little Kids mode to Talking To Adults mode -- a large portion of his most recent job centered around education and outreach and this involved a lot of talking at school field trip groups about the sea. He's a great swimmer, a good diver, and adroit on sailboats. He loves tennis, and is quite decent at it. He plays the flute very well, although he's been out of practice since getting into Prometheus. Fluent in Tagalog and Spanish as well as English.

New In Town - Leo has spent the past several years in a lab and is readjusting to Normal Person Life. Know the city well? He'd be more than glad for some new friends.
Anyone for tennis? - He's eager to take advantage of public courts and get back in the game!
On the Water - A skilled sailor and avid swimmer, he's happiest off of dry land.
Sea monsters - Only too happy to geek out with people about all things weird and wonderful that live under the ocean.
No human being is illegal - But try telling that to the government. He's trying to navigate life as an undocumented immigrant; harder some places than others.
