Leon was born to Kaitlyn Sikowsky, a well-to-do delinquent teenage youth from, who became pregnant at the age of fifteen after an alcohol-fueled one-night-stand with a young man (whom she would later be unable to remember due to how drunk she was) at a house party in 2531. Becoming pregnant however motivated Kaitlyn to get her life together for the sake of her unborn child. Supported financially by her parents, Kaitlyn put renewed effort into her schoolwork, enough to enable her to make up for her earlier poor grades and get accepted to a local university there in the city several years later.
From his birth, Leon was strange. He sometimes disliked being held as an infant. As a toddler, he would not play with his toys when others were around, and he preferred to organize his toys rather than to truly play with them as well. In school, he associated little with other children, and performed badly in his academics despite showing exceptional intelligence for his age.
Concerned, Leon's school had him tested for Asperger Syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism, and the results were positive.
After his diagnosis, Leon was placed in a special education program, which gave him access to adaptions in his academics, and also taught him how to better socialize with children his age. Thanks to the help of this program, Leon was able to do well in school and make plenty of friends. However, Leon never managed to have much luck in dating during his adolescence, despite plenty of interest.
After graduating from high school, Leon decided to join the UNSC Army with his good friend Jacob Steinworth, who was determined to help keep the looming threat from reaching .

After about one uneventful year following the completion of Leon's training, the Covenant finally arrived on Reach.an enormous Covenant invasion force secretly massing in , and Leon and Jacob found themselves being deployed as part of a massive offensive aimed at dismantling the Covenant invasion before it even began.
Early in the battle, Leon'sbroke off from the main assault force to aid in the destruction of several Covenant that were preventing the from providing vital air support. Leon's platoon was deployed at a Covenant-occupied mining facility between the AA guns, and attempted to clear the building to allow ground forces to pass through it. However, the platoon quickly sustained heavy casualties, and were forced to evacuate the premises of the facility via . After dropping off their wounded at base camp, the remainder of Leon's platoon was redeployed to secure the ruins of one of the anti-aircraft guns, which had been destroyed by .
However, after thedestroyed and revealed in geosynchronous orbit above Ütközet, the UNSC began to hastily withdraw their forces from the region. Leon and Jacob were sent to their hometown of New Alexandria, which, being a major population center, would be a prime target for the Covenant invaders.
Sure enough, New Alexandria fell under attack by foursoon after the supercarrier over Ütközet was and arrived in orbit. The Corvettes began to deploy throughout the city, who quickly took control of key locations and making civilian evacuation difficult.

Personality & Traits
- "I met some real Spartans back during the war, you know. Man, when I think about them, sometimes I wonder if us IVs are just Spartans in name only."
- ―Sikowsky, on the differences between the SPARTAN-IIs and the SPARTAN-IVs.
Unlike many SPARTAN-IVs, Sikowsky did not let becoming a Spartan go to his head, and he remained humble and down to earth, and looked down upon those Spartans whose egos swelled from their newfound abilities. Sikowsky tried to model himself after the Spartans of Sapphire Team whom he'd fought alongside during the war, and he encouraged his comrades to behave similarly.
Due to his Aspergers, Sikowsky often struggled with being patient and maintaining his focus. Though this would improve over time, it would remain an area of weakness for him throughout his military career. However, when he did allow himself to stop, think, and analyze a situation, Sikowsky was an excellent tactician. Unlike many autistics, Sikowsky was very skilled at reading both people and situations, something which helped him greatly as a soldier and a leader.
Socially, Sikowsky fared well, appearing mostly normal. However, he did exhibit a few quirks, such as a tendency towards overenthusiasm, and some minor obsessive-compulsive habits. While his friends and teammates became accustomed to these things, and a few, such as Annette Darvinshire, even found these traits endearing, others like found these habits annoying and would lose patience with Sikowsky very quickly.

After graduating from the Recruit armor, Sikowsky was presented with the option to either keep fielding the Recruit armor, or transition to one out of a small list of MJOLNIR variants selected specifically for him. Sikowsky ultimately chose to transition to UNSC Orphellion in July 2558, Sikowsky would repaint his armor, using a new pattern and two different shades of green instead of just one., commonly considered by many to be the [GEN2] platform's baseline variant, and easily its most popular. This armor variant allowed for exceptional speed and mobility, while at the same time allowing for minimal compromise in regards to protection. Sikowsky retained the steel and dark green scheme from his previous Recruit armor, and also added the 4.05, or the "Frost" visor. In May 2558, this armor was upgraded with an integrated as part of a system-wide update. Additionally, after transferring to the
