Claim to Fame

Leopold Fitz is one of the brightest scientists and engineers in the world.


Reputation

Outside of S.H.I.E.L.D., not much is known about Fitz outside of his home town in Scotland. Within the organization, however, he's known as one of their youngest, best, and brightest engineers. Many an agent would love to have him on the team, but you'd better not separate him from Simmons, or you'll have a mess on your hands.


Biography

Leopold "Leo" Fitz was born in Scotland, United Kingdom. His only known relative is his mother. As he grew up, it became quickly apparent that he possessed a genius-level intellect, and worked his way through school quickly, graduating two years ahead of others his age.

He was recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D., given citizenship, and attended the organization's Academy of Science and Technology. It was there where he became friends with the equally-intelligent, bio-chem expert, Jemma Simmons. They soon became best friends, the attached-at-the-hip type, and eventually earned the nickname 'Fitzsimmons' from their peers.

Both Fitz and Simmons graduated from the academy three years early. Fitz would have been happy to spend all of his time in a lab. However, at the urging of Simmons (and against the advice of Professor Vaughn), the pair put in for a field position.

Character Details

Leopold Fitz is somewhat socially awkward, and he's virtually joined at the hip to his best friend, Jemma Simmons. In spite of his awkwardness, he occasionally surprises others with a clever wit and dry sense of humor. He also has a strange affinity for monkeys.

In spite of his lacking in the combat arena and field experience, he possesses a remarkable level of bravery. While he can be scatterbrained, he is also an extremely quick thinker. He believes deeply in the friendships he creates, and is loyal to the core. He also holds a deep rooted belief that all villains are redeemable, and that people are never "born evil". Thus, he tends to be quick to forgive and understanding of others' problems.

Fitz also tends to go through with his promises… and his threats. If given to violence, you may not need to worry about his fists, but you'd damn well better worry about what he creates.

In spite of what others might think, his relationship with Jemma Simmons has been and very well may always be completely platonic. He cares about her like a twin sister, and he would do anything for her, but romance has always simply been, well, not a factor.

Inventions

Image Type Night-Night Gun (Rifle)
NightNightRifle.png Projectile Weapon The Night-Night Gun is a prototype tranquilizer rifle manufactured by Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz. The rifle fires non-lethal bullets with heavy stopping power that break up under the subcutaneous tissue. From there, the bullets deliver a tiny amount of dendrotoxin, incapacitating the target long enough for them to be secured and with no harmful side effects. (Not Cleared for Field Use)
Image Type Golden Retriever drones (aka 'seekers')
GoldenRetrievers.jpg Automated Drone The "Golden Retrievers" are mobile independent tracking drones created by Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons. These independent, airborne tracking devices disperse in different directions while searching for their programmed target. They scan for visual data, scent, heat signatures and biological signatures, and are also equipped with a debilitating "scream mode".
Image Type D.W.A.R.F. drones
DWARF.png Operator-controlled Drone The D.W.A.R.F.s (Drones Wirelessly Automated to Retrieve Forensics) are a set of quad-copter robotic drones custom designed by Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons to seek out, analyze and scan forensic evidence at S.H.I.E.L.D. hot-spots. The drones are controlled from a specially designed tablet from which the operator can control the drones movements and organize, classify and prioritize the incoming data.
Image Type Mouse Hole
Mouse_Hole.png Cutting Tool The Mouse Hole is a portable cutting device capable of cutting through almost any material. It was created by Leo Fitz, but never went to production for field agents. (Not Cleared for Field Use)
Image Type Full-Spectrum Goggles
Fullspec.png Tactical Eyewear The Full-Spectrum Goggles are a pair of goggles developed by Leo Fitz. They are used to visualize the whole electromagnetic spectrum from infrared to near-ultraviolet.
