Lealta Kin Clan: Advisor/Scientist
Turn Date: 75 AD
Mate: Robert Langdon
Leonardo was youngest son of a small Patrician. He was educated by the finest tutors, and had shown his gift in art and mathematics. His father encouraged his inventions and artistic endeavors.
He was apprenticed to an archetict who worked for Caesar to build new buildings for the glory of Rome. He watched in horror as many of them burned in 64 AD. In the following years he started to work on rebuilding areas that were destroyed.
It wasn’t until he started working on the Colosseum that he felt for once he was helping something grand for Rome.
He met Archmedes during this time, who had come to see the new constructions. The two became friends easily, though Leonardo’s frantic work and inability to rest had the older Greek worried. When he found Leonardo collapsed on his workshop floor, he nursed him back to health then gave him an option to be Turned.
Note: Yes we changed the image of Leonardo due to a rumor for the Assassins Creed movie – that kinda stuck and wouldn’t let go.
