Leon Ames was survivor of the Great War and co-founder of the initial settlement at the West Everett Estates in 2078.


He, his brother Lance, his sister-in-law Janet, and their children were all citizens of Malden, Massachusetts, they made their home at the West Everett Estates. All throughout the summer of 2077 his brother Lance would laugh at their friend and neighbor Wayne Tournquist[1] for what they believed was wasting his time on constructing his backyard bunker. Instead they together took a family vacation to New York.

On the morning of October 31 he and his family were on their way home, on the freeway in Connecticut, when the nuclear detonations struck. They left their vehicles on the freeway and on foot made it back home. Leaving their vehicles behind turned out to be the smart move, traveling on foot was both safer and faster. As his brother put it "the things we saw... I never thought I'd see happen in America."

They made it home on November 8th, immediately he and Lance began to plan the walling up of the neighborhood. That night Lance would scout the neighborhood to see if any of their neighbors had survived.[2] Some had... the night of January 27th, 2078 Lance was on Wayne's roof, scouting the neighborhood through his rifle scope when Lance spotted Wayne searching the Cobb's den. He saw how Ron Cobb snuck up on Wayne and put a gun to the back of his head, made him turn around slowly and then cocked the hammer. Lance fired, killing Ron and saving Wayne. Indebted to him, they together met the following night to plan and gather supplies for fortifications.[3]

For the next three months they worked together to barricade and fortify the neighborhood.[1] To get the biggest part done in a night, together he, Lance , and Wayne stole a couple trucks from the Irish Pride Industries shipyard nearby. – Leon doing the actual hotwireing. – Lance had them pull the trucks around to the edges of the yards to start the wall. Wayne however flipped his and almost crushed his house. It was another month before they had the rest of the wall ready. Since then they were keeping watch in shifts, and the kids all enjoyed getting to come out side.[4]

This however was the end of their good fortune, on March 27th 2078 Leon would make the fatal mistake. He and Lance were scouting when they came upon a group of former rioters, immediately he started shooting off his mouth about their fort. They let the pair go and followed them home.[5]

Lance knew they would be seeing them again real soon. While he was on watch on the roof he was killed. Leon stupidly and cowardly pissed his pants and joined the raiders after they overran the settlement. They latter planning to use him as a shield for when they went back into the city.[6] In the commotion Wayne and Michael grabbed David and ran away under fire.[7]
