According to his character bio, "Leon's life is one filled with crime, women, and borrowing without returning. He lost his arm in an unfortunate jeu de boules incident, and spends most of his time smoothly escaping debt collectors. He found himself becoming the most wanted criminal on the planet after accidentally breaking into the bedroom of the prime minister’s wife, while looking for the wine cellar. Knowing that no amount of charm could save him this time, he planned his escape from the system. This daring plan was eventually delayed because he refused to escape in anything else but a space yacht." Leon ended up joining the Awesomenuts because, well, he needed the money.
