What ever you do... Don't call him Leslie.
He starts off at blue level with an awesome skill. Born Leader (Police). What this means is that he can use the Born Leader skill... but it only affects other survivors with the words Police or Cop in their name.
His ability at orange to get free search, or 1 reroll can be big. Lucky and Tough round out his abilities.. or just give him another +1 action. that's 5 actions at red level... 6 if you get the free search at orange. That's pretty big.
