Leonard was a famous archaeologist. He and his wife Thelma Meltsner were held captive by Dalton Kearn for twenty years. For the longest time Leonard Meltnser was thought to be dead until Eugene and Katrina Meltsner found proof of him being alive while they were on a trip in Africa, where he was working with a small tribe. The tribe called him "Morati."
After returning to Odyssey with Eugene and Katrina, it was discovered that he had kidney failure due to untreated diabetes and would need a new kidney. The doctor said that even if Leonard made it through the surgery, he would have a maximum of three to ten years to live. Eugene was the best match as an organ donor, and since he believed that any time that could be added to his father's life was worth it, agreed to donate his kidney to him.
The relationship between Eugene and Leonard was always rocky because of the constant regret and guilt that Leonard had for encouraging Thelma to have an abortion before Eugene was born.
