Leon is an F-Zero racer debuting in F-Zero X. Twelve years ago, his parents were killed in a big war on the planet Zou. His species had natural advantages over humans, such as sharper reflexes and natural instincts. He met Super Arrow and Mrs. Arrow when the couple were vacationing on his planet. They decided to give him a chance in racing the King Meteor.
Given his skill, it was decided he would be sent to the F-Zero Grand Prix to be a symbol of hope for his ailing, war torn planet. Although he wasn't considered especially bright, he proved to be a natural at the F-Zero races, despite his young age, and though he was teased at first by other pilots, his continued performance has given him a good track record. It's his hope to become champion so he can use the money to save the children of Zou from poverty.
He lacks the intelligence of humans, but makes up for it in reflexes and cornering ability.
