Leszek is an empathic misanthrope, "a concerned human being", you might say. Looking at the future of earthlings (clearly not very promising), they are gladly pouring their lifelong experience as a unicorn into this meaningful and friendly project. Some of the things that drive them professionally are: observing processes, finding understanding, and bringing order. And converting tabs to spaces.
