"I can see you're a real scholar..."
- ―Leon Masters discussing Alchemy with a fellow worker
Leon Cedric Masters was born in the port city of Lurdahar, a Galbadian territory known for its seafood and wineries. His father was a ship mecanic and was often away from home for long stretches of time, while his mother ran a small vineyard that specialized in seafood-based vintages. He also had a younger brother who died shortly after turning six to unknown causes.
Leon's early life was rather modest, as he spent most of his time helping his mother run the vineyard, where she taught him chemistry and botany while they worked. When his father would come home, Leon would spend a day or two being taught how to make something practical. By his tenth birthday, he was convinced he wanted to both be an engineer and a chemist, but couldn't think of a way to mix the two fields in a satisfactory way. His father then suggested he become an Alchemist and work for a big company and make meaningful changes in the world, and for Leon's eleventh birthday, had him enrolled into Trabia Garden.
Leon did well at his studies, particularly in math, chemistry, and alchemy, and by his 16th birthday had managed to land an internship at Videlic Arms. He's since completed his education, earned his alchemist certification, and moved into a full-time role at the company.
"Leon, a moment."
"Mr. Masters, please pay attention."
"Excuse me, Mr. Masters?"
"Oh! Um...whoops? I uh...I thought you were one of the interns. ...Sorry?"
"And this is why breaks are mandatory, Mr. Masters."

Leon is a rare breed of engineer, one who melds traditional technique and expertise with alchemy. He loves his work, and puts every effort he can into each product. He tends to overwork himself, earning exasperated, if amused, warnings from his supervisors to take a break.
He's generally a very focused, straightforward conversationalist, although he has a good sense of humor, and while his confidence tends to rub some people the wrong way, there's no doubting his dedication to anything or anyone he sets his mind to.
