Leo Wong is a rich human who owns the western hemisphere of Mars together with his wife Inez. They farm buggalo at their ranch.

They often are urging their only daughter, Amy, to have children, but are disappointed to find that her chosen parter is Kif, an Amphibiosan. Leo is also the cause of several environmental disasters and huge explosions, including the destruction of Mars Vegas and an attempt to wipe out 12% of the Milky Way in order to create a giant miniature golf course.

Biography

Leo's family has lived on and owned the western hemisphere on Mars for many generations, since his ancestor Sir Reginald Wong bought it from the Native Martians with a bead (3ACV10). Leo married Inez Wong and they had a daughter, Amy in 2979. While Amy went off to study at "Mars University" and becoming an intern at Planet Express, Leo has stayed at Wong Ranch breeding buggalo.

In 3009, Leo Wong used his wealth to destroy and rebuild Mars Vegas, and build the biggest miniature golf course in history (ITWGY).

In 3010, he protested against Proposition ∞ after his daughter started a robosexual relationship with Bender (6ACV04).

Leo owns a company known as "Wong". The company constructed the Wong Hotel & Casino, created Leo's giant miniature golf course and a machine that attempted to destroy Saturn's rings. Wong owns at least one subsidiary called Wong Golf.

Character Description

Personality

Leo is depicted as extremely selfish and outright mean, corrupt, insensitive and sexist, denying Amy Wong's wish to be a professional golfer because of her gender. Alongside his wife, he constantly tries to control his daughter, and on multiple occassions he tries to make her separate from her Fonfon ru Kif Kroker - an Amphibiosan - because he is not enough man for her.
