At the age of 13, a tragedy struck. His mother, Beatrice, escaped from her caregivers and kidnapped her son, then drove their car into a lake. Both Leo and his mother were drowned, but Mia brought Leo to the surface and back to his father, who resurrected him as a human-synth hybrid. David thereafter created a synth replacement for his wife, to the horror of his son and the other synths; he told her to leave then took her out to the woods to kill her, but couldn’t. He came back to the house and told his son and the synths to get out and then committed suicide. His father’s last order to Leo was to take care of the synths.
