Leonid Moskvin is a character in the Metro 2034 novel and also makes an appearance in Metro: Last Light. He is the son of the Red Line's leader - Comrade Maxim Moskvin.


Metro 2034Edit

Leonid is depicted as a very handsome young man with an "angelic face and big green eyes". He's also cocky, charming and a skilled talker. From his earliest years Leonid was interested in music, art and books, much to his father's dismay, who wanted nothing more than a ruthless successor. As a form of punishment his father forced Leonid when he was a child to destroy a mosaic in order to show the boy that beauty is impermanent. Little did Comrade Moskvin know that Leonid memorised the pattern, thus not proving his son anything.

Evidently, all attempts to straighten out the young boy were in vain, so Leonid was "excommunicated and banished" from the family. From that day, having nothing more than flute and diplomatic passport, Leonid travels around the metro to instil beauty into metro inhabitants' hearts. Thanks to this and his performances he never lacks cartridges.

After their first meeting, Homer is extremely wary of Leonid, believing that he's nothing more than a fraud who wants to steal Sasha from him. It is later revealed that there is a hint of truth in this as Leonid fell in love with Sasha. During  the Rangers' assault on Tulska station he tries (and somehow succeeds) to calm an angry mob of infected people. Unfortunately Leonid is shot in the stomach by stray bullet. His fate remains unknown as Homer doesn't find his body among the drowned corpses.

Metro: Last LightEdit

In Last Light he frees Artyom from the torture room, stating he is disgusted by his father´s attempts to beat information out of him. Leonid also mentions that he resents his father for murdering his own brother to take over power and notes he will probably end up like his uncle.
