"We were created as weapons. And we knew the world would never accept us, but one day, it would need us."

Leonardo is one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the new 2014 movie.

He is the oldest, wisest and most cautious Turtle, the one who always plays by the book. He also bears the great burden of being the team's chosen leader. Leo is dedicated to perfecting his ninjutsu skills and will stop at nothing to defend his brothers and the entire city. Wearing a blue bandana, with katanas holstered on his shell, Leo firmly believes it's his ninja duty to protect all people.
