The Prospector was a character who appeared in the ninth episode of the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. He was the head miner in 1912 who discovered the Santa Sangre while searching for oil. After breaking the rock and revealing the sacred blood, the Santa Sangre entered into him from a cut and he proceeded to kill the miners.
The Prospector and his three workers had put in a long day and he motivates them to keep on going. After digging some more, he breaks a rock and the blood takes the form of a snake, and slithered into a cut on his arm. After the blood gushes like oil, the Prospector shows up in front of his workers with blood on him and a crazed look, and proceeds to kill them one by one with his pickax.
