Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series[]

Season Three[]

In Protect and Serve, he approaches Chloe and proceeds to sting her with his scorpion tail, kidnapping her, along with several other culebras. He reveals that he was bitten by a "snake" and this said "snake" is Burt, who arrives to save the culebras, Freddie and Aiden. Caporal meets his end when Burt shoots him in the chest with an arrow.

Physical Appearance[]

He wears a dark cowboy hat, a red-black plaid shirt and black apron. His hands are extremely pale gray-white like some Xibalban body parts. He has dark brown hair and light blue eyes, and covers his scarred, ripped off face with a red bandana.


He shows the personality of a cowboy back in the old western movies and speaks with a strong Texan accent. He has manners towards women, but is still ruthless to the core. As an enforcer, he makes sure the culebras stick to where they are on the hierarchy of Xibalba. He does not show much love to culebras in general as he also stated that "a snake" bit on his face, which is later revealed to be Burt. He shows utter hatred for Burt as he went after him in a rage, but this rush brings him to meet his own end.
