During the ride there, Jason says he does not remember anything and Leo thinks that he is playing a joke on him.When Gleeson Hedge, their coach, yells at them from the front of the bus, Leo says that he can not hear him, prompting Hedge to use his megaphone.She also tried to make him poke a rattlesnake, which he refused to do.
His mom died in the fire, and his Aunt Rosa called him a 'diablo' (which means devil in Spanish) and turned his remaining family against him, thus forcing him to be sent to several foster homes. The emotional strain caused him to run away from multiple foster homes.
After running away for the sixth time, Leo was sent to the Wilderness School, where he met Piper Mc Lean, who unbeknownst to him, was a daughter of Aphrodite.
While Jason and Piper try to fight Dylan, Hedge takes off his disguise and shows the others that he is a satyr sent to protect Leo and Piper.
He jumps over the side and manages to grab Leo, pulling him back up as Jason fights off the venti using his Imperial Gold sword, Ivlivs thus saving him.
When Butch threatens to toss him off the flying chariot, Leo sarcastically backtracks saying that rainbows and ponies are very macho.
Once arriving at camp, Leo is immediately claimed by his father, Hephaestus, and goes on a tour of the camp with Will Solace, who is a son of Apollo and head counselor of cabin seven, who brings him to Hephaestus' cabin.

He plays one of the most important roles in the prophecy.
He is a Greek demigod, the son of Hephaestus and Esperanza Valdez. Leo was born on July 7th, in Houston, Texas to the mechanic Esperanza Valdez and the god Hephaestus.
When he was little, he had a babysitter named Tia Callida, whom later was discovered to be Hera in disguise.
When Hedge turns on the megaphone, it sounds like Darth Vader or shouts out phrases like "The cow says moo," something that Leo had done as a prank.
