IIRC it is said Leon was supposed to arrive earlier in the RPD but due to drinking too much the previous night after breaking up with his gf to work in RC he showed up late.

I am not even making this up, I'm pretty sure I read that in a reliable RE wiki once lol I'm not sure if this is even cannon, it's pretty hard to find any personal info on the characters actually. It seems like Capcom hasn't expanded on them much outside outbreaks.

Doesn't say too much for his work ethic that he turned up late for his first day on the job - everyone else was already responding to the outbreak and/or dead.

God knows how he already had a uniform before he'd even arrived there.

@VictorXD: Had no idea. That's even worse!

Yikes! Good thing they made a little more sense of this in remake2, with Leon saying he got a call telling him to stay away.

Was it said in the original RE2 that he was late? I don't remember anyone ever mentioning it unless I'm forgetting. maybe he was scheduled to work the night shift?

I’ve often wondered where here got his RPD uniform from. Also, the nearest town to Raccoon City was Stoneville which was connected by a Train Line and considering he had no possessions with him perhaps he lived there and was commuting.

I feel like he would've received his uniform at some sort of swearing in ceremony? Isn't there a thing like that for police officers? Everyone knew he was coming too, there's party decorations and everything. He had to have been to the RPD prior to his first day.

That's interesting about Stoneville, he had to be commuting, that's the only thing that makes sense, even if it's a bit nonsensical.

Probably. Although you’d think he would recognise some of the officers if he had actually been to the station before. I like that they were throwing him a party, I wonder if he knew about the S.T.A.R.S suspension.

Sounds reasonable, right?

That's true, he should've had a lot more knowledge about the other officers and the S.T.A.R.S members, like when Claire introduces herself, it would've been nice if he would've put two and two together about who her brother was. But I guess that's asking too much from a 90's video game script.

Capcom: it's his first day at his new job at the R.P.D-

Fans:

WHERE IS HE COMMUTING FROM? WHAT IS HIS LIVING SITUATION? MARITAL STATUS? WHAT WERE HIS REFERENCES ON HIS JOB APPLICATION? WHAT IS HIS FINANCIAL SITUATION, DOES THE RPD OFFER A 401K? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? HEALTH INSURANCE? WE NEED INFORMATION.
