Transcript

LEON S. KENNEDY

36 years old. Agent under the direct control of the U.S. President. He is an agent with proven abilities that the U.S. government has heavy trust for.

Due to the circumstances he once encountered in the large-scale biohazard in Raccoon City, he has a strong resentment for bioterrorism.

Although he has a calm and composed personality, he has the flexibility to take bold actions in a situation.

As an agent, Leon began to mature and became more prudent with his behavior.
However, he has a sense of humor and occasionally cracks jokes, and has a strong sense of justice that hasn't changed since he was assigned to Raccoon City as a rookie police officer.

Leon heavily participated in the establishment of the DSO (Division of Security Operations) organization, a group of agents.
We can confirm one part of the situation just before its establishment from the following document.

"[About the DSO Establishment] United States President Adam Benford 2011.2.2

Leon S. Kennedy

Regarding the agent organization you and I have discussed for some time, I'm here to report that we're ready to begin its official inauguration. The United States has clearly not yet put an end to the long War on Terror after 9.11. On the contrary, it was exposed to the new menace of bioterrorism, and recently it's become difficult to confront these through the conventional organizational framework.

Thus, in accordance with the above and based on your advice, I've decided to establish the DSO (Division of Security Operations), an organization of agents under the President's direct control.
FOS will fully support the DSO.

Leon. As a DSO founding member, I'll have you operate a great deal.
To protect the United States from the threat of bioterrorism.
To eradicate every damned B.O.W. from this world.
Together, we will fight at the risk of our lives"

"Please note that due to errors and mistranslations in official English localization, the following text may contain inconsistencies with the official Japanese text and series storyline, and should not be treated as canon. For a more accurate translation, please view the Project Umbrella translation."

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.

Leon,

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.

Adam Benford
President of the United States of America
February 2, 2011[3]

36歳。アメリカ合衆国大統領直轄エージェント。
合衆国政府が最も厚い信頼を寄せるエージェントで、その実力は折り紙付き。
かつて、ラクーンシティでの大規模なバイオハザードに遭遇した経緯から、バイオテロに対して強い憤りを抱いている。
冷静沈着な性格だが、状況に合わせ大胆な行動に出る柔軟性も持ち合わせている。
エージェントとして円熟し始めたレオンは、その言動に慎重さが増すようになった。
しかし、たまに軽口を叩くユーモアや、強い正義感は、かつて新米警官としてラクーンシティに配属された時から変わっていない。

そのレオンが設立に大きく関与した組織が、エージェント集団のDSO(Division of Security Operations)である。
設立直前の状況の一端を、下記の資料より確認することができる。

「【DSO設立について】合衆国大統領アダム・ベンフォード 2011.2.2
レオン・S・ケネディ

以前から君と協議していたエージェントの新組織についてだが、正式に発足の運びとなったことを、ここに報告する。
合衆国は9.11以降、長いテロとの戦いに未だ明確に終止符を打てていない。それどころか、昨今はバイオテロという新しい脅威にもさらされており、これらに旧来の組織体系で立ち向かっていくことは、難しくなってきている。


よって前述の通り、君からの進言をもとに、大統領直轄エージェントの組織である
DSO(Division of Security Operations)を設立することにした。
DSOのサポートにあたっては、FOSが全面的にこれを執り行う。

レオン。君にはDSO立ち上げメンバーとして色々と動いてもらうことになるだろう。
バイオテロの脅威から合衆国を守るため。
忌々しいB.O.W.をこの世界から根絶するため。
共に、身命を賭して戦っていこう」
