Leon – Today

Leon today

After digging out his old yearbook photo, Leon insisted I’d take a picture of him today. He probably just wanted to show I really was kidding about his hair.
There are about 20 years between yesterday’s and today’s photos, but I dare say, the years have treated him rather well.

Leon – Piano

leon - pianoNext to his work, Leon’s biggest passion is music. A picture of him in the operating theatre would probably not be very appealing to most people, so here’s one of him playing the piano.

Due to his massive physique, Leon could be easily mistaken for a brute, but in fact he is quite the opposite. When he plays classic masterpieces on the piano, his fingers stroke the keys ever so gently and he completely loses himself in the music.

P.S.: I am absolutely not a fan of cluttering a blog post with links to music videos, but in case you want to know – I was listening to Chopin’s Nocturnes while taking and editing this picture.

Allow me to introduce… Leon Hyde

leon hyde

Name: Leon 'Jekyll' Hyde
Age: 37
Born: London, England
Occupation: Surgeon

Meet Leon Hyde! Wait, Mister Hyde? No, Doctor Hyde. For obvious reasons also called Jekyll by some of his friends.

With an English Father and a French mother, Leon grew up bilingual. At the early age of six, he started to play the piano, and it would become one of his greatest passions in life. As a child, he was rather small and timid, which caused him to be the target of mockery more than once.

Today, Leon is no longer skinny, but his kind and gentle nature has not changed. However, life has left both his body and soul scarred, and he has learned to be hard and cold as steel if neccessary.

When he was 17, he lost his brother in a motorbike accident, he barely survived himself. Leon still walks with a limp and while his clothes cover the scars on his leg and hip, his beard cannot quite hide the one on his jaw.

Leon complied with his dying brother’s last wish and became a doctor instead of a professional pianist. Today he is known as a brilliant surgeon who loves his job. He spends his little spare time playing the piano, listening to classical music or reading. To keep in shape, he does weight lifting, goes swimming and plays golf.

OOC information:

Leon cleary is one of my favourite characters ever. He was only created recently, but “came to life” very quickly. He is a bit different from my other characters, not only due to the fact he is more mature. I love to play contradictory characters that have many facets to themselves.
