In Resident Evil 4, Leon S. Kennedy returns as a secret agent for the U.S. government, six years after the events of Resident Evil 2. In that game, Leon was a rookie police officer who found himself caught up in the T-Virus outbreak in Raccoon City. This time around, his mission is to protect the President's family, who have been targeted by a dangerous religious cult in rural Spain. Throughout the game, Leon faces hordes of enemies infected by a parasitic organism known as Las Plagas, which takes over their minds and turns them into violent killers. Although he was infected by Las Plagas, which is not a virus, he killed the parasite before it could take control of his body. Despite the challenges he faces, Leon proves himself to be a skilled and resourceful agent, and his determination to complete his mission is a key part of what makes Resident Evil 4 such an iconic game in the franchise.
