Leonard Bates [1] is a former tax accountant saved by the Extreme Ghostbusters. [2]

HistoryEdit

Leonard Bates spent most of his life in New York City as a tax accountant at a large firm. [3] One night, he missed the bus and was stalked by an Evil Clown. Bates mistook the clown for a street performer. He indulged him by handing out money and laughing. The clown fed on Bates. An eyewitness called the Extreme Ghostbusters. They took readings off of Bates' clothing and confiscated it for analysis. Once all the Evil Clowns were trapped, Bates was released somewhere on Coney Island naked.

A few months later, as he approached 40 years of age, he realized he didn't have anyone to share his life with and decided to make a new start. He quit his job and sold his place in the Upper West Side, eager to leave the rat race for good. [4] [5] [6] Bates bought a home from Adelaide Realty on Long Island. He discovered a wishing well in the tool shed and made a flippant wish for a wife. A Ghost Bride manifested and stalked Bates. Bates hurried to the Extreme Ghostbusters for help. They managed to trap the ghost on a stake out in the Firehouse but the well produced another ghost. Bates hid in his home and called the Ghostbusters. Once they dealt with the head entity, the Wishgiver, Bates decided to sell the house and went traveling across the world, starting with a three week trip to Europe. [7]
