Leo Teal is a minor antagonist in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


In 1986, Leo Teal began his career as a a restaurant chef in Ocean Beach, Vice City. During the same time, he was a hitman for Mr. Black who was an anonymous criminal. The VCPD (Vice City Police Department) assumed that Leo was involved in the narcotics business. However, they were unable to obtain any information about him due to his expertise in communication.

At some point later in 1986, Leo was hired by local drug baron Ricardo Diaz. Leo's first assignment was to ambush Ricardo's drug trade which was scheduled to take place at Vice City's harbor. He was accompanied by two other hitmen. When the drug trade took place, they managed to kill most of the people on the receiving end. They also managed to obtain the money and drugs that were exchanged. However, buyers Tommy Vercetti and Ken Rosenburg escaped.

A few days later, Tommy obtained more information about the ambushed drug trade. With help from a man named Kent Paul, Tommy discovered Leo's involvement. He went to an alley behind the restaurant where Leo worked. He found Leo who was using a portable phone to speak with Mr. Black. Leo attempted to fight Tommy but was ultimately killed. Afterward, Tommy took the portable phone and began working for Mr. Black.
