The Lion of Stråssa
|Years in Stråssa|
|2147||Victim of a vicious smear campaign on the streets and in Radio Active which directly led to the Lion Hunt of 2147, which saw Leo lynched by a mob for the sake of Konduktör Én's lies.|

Leo the hero is the shining saviour of his village, the Lion of Stråssa and the idol of thousands. Famous for his dashing good looks and deeds of daring-do, this hero bestrides the wasteland like a colossus.
Leo the warrior has slayed more of Pansarvargarna than any man, woman or mutant alive, and he has singlehanbedly stopped the inbred hordes of Lindesberg from overrunning the emporium of Stråssa Sinterverk.
Leo the great is admittedly narcissistic and obsessed with his hairdo. In 2146, Detektivbyrå Tre lingon drove through the middle of a massive firefight with 1'000 caps as ransom for Leo's pliers.
Captain Leo was the victim of the great Lion Hunt of 2147, a vicious desinformation smear campaign directly followed by a lynchmob hunting down their great protector. In 2148, he seeks his revenge, with the help of the people in Stråssa.

The great hero of Stråssa, Leo, has experienced a disturbing morning. Upon waking, he found out that this village was not his own anymore. Apparently, people looked strangely on him, and some even shot after him in the street!
Konduktör Én (K): "Ooh, as if throwing away a paltry five minions would deceive us. No! YOU went to a mutant brothel! YOU have betrayed Stråssa! YOU are involved in the wild mutant business! YOU collaborate with the Panzer Wolves and train them to become better fighters! And you're very handsome!" Leo streaks his hair with a finger, acknowledging his famous good looks.
K: "You it was who let twenty Panzer Wolves in through the front gate of the pallisade yesterevening! We know that you have trained the Panzer Wolves from a ragtag mob into a thinking fighting force! They have become dangerous, and it is the doing of your tactical genius! We know that you plan to strike and seize all Stråssa for yourself and your inbred minions! But we have assembled to stop you!
A good hunt! What a prey! Ingratitude is the world's sole reward. Isn't that right, Leo? And so a dark chapter of insanity and witch hunt closes in the annals of Stråssa. A brief moment, when rabid hatred flared up for the man everyone looked up to and everyone tought they could trust. A glimpse of madness, when the people betrayed their own champion, and mowed him down in cold blood. Thus concluded the infamous Lion Hunt of 2147 AD.
