Born in a fishing village near Esmeraldas, Ecuador. Son of a local more successful than average fishing boat captain. Spent plenty of time on the beach fishing, swimming and life on a small ship. Learned English taking visitors on fishing trips and tourist runs.
Ran into local drug cartel when he discovered that his father would occasionally make transfer runs from one ship to another. Was received by local drug cartel leader who bribed Ecuadorian Coast Guard official into taking Jose on. Would occasionally check up on Jose.
Due to hard work and a good cover when he allowed his host’s ships pass or not find drugs on raids was offered an opportunity to go to the US for training. War starts. Stuck in the US on Coast Guard Island. Settled in due to his abilities running a ship, navigating and such.

He carries his HK-33E 5.56N mostly because he is used to it. He is a free
agent switching between Milgov and private depending upon who pays better.
