Lead Survivors are characters that are used to build Survivor Squads. A lead survivor is the only survivor that can be placed in the leader slot in a Squad. Every lead survivor has a Personality attribute and a Job attribute that can be matched to the Job of the Survivor Squad they are placed in.


Each non-Mythic Lead Survivor is randomly assigned a Job attribute. This determines their aptitude for a given Squad.

Lead Survivors


Main article: Survivors#Personality

Like subordinate Survivors, Lead Survivors also have randomly assigned Personality attributes. Lead survivors themselves get no bonus for matching the personality of their subordinates. Only subordinate survivors get the personality match bonus.

Mythic Leads

Unlike lead survivors that are Legendary rarity or lower, Mythic lead survivors have names and pre-assigned personalities. Therefore, every Mythic lead survivor with a particular name has the same personality every time. They also have unique slots in the Collection Book.

Below is a list of all Mythic Leaders along with their Job and Personality:
