- Carlos isn’t 100% Spaniard, but a product of rape between a native woman and a conquistador. They took him from his mother as an infant and raised him to be one of them, but he never truly fit. He was often the outlier in groups and discriminated against because of the darker tones of his skin. Carlos has always been honest about his purpose in the Americas because he never felt the religion he was indoctrinated to believe in. He was there to pillage and he was there for gold, which alienated himself further from the group because he could never make himself buy into the “we are claiming this land by divine right, saving these savages from their pagan gods” initiative. He was sent on the suicide mission for gold because to the rest of the group, he was considered pretty expendable. When he met Santanico, it felt like he found something he had been missing his entire life. It was easy to become a turncoat in order to serve her, easy to let her make him a monster—in that moment, it felt like he had found his purpose.
- Carlos ended up being an errand boy for the counselors of the nine because they controlled Santanico and he willing served her, making him a “slave of slaves,” a title he hated and created the bitter anger burning inside of him. If Carlos is greedy, Santanico meant that he is greedy for retribution. He is greedy to see them fall and take his rightful place as the master. It was his idea to include killing them as part of the plot to free Santanico, and she agreed, even though it complicated the process—because she knew he needed to purge himself of of all his anger and mostly goes along with it because it meant less people to chase after her once she was free.
- Carlos has spent years procuring everything Santanico has needed without complaint. This includes clothes, lingerie, and makeup (this never changes, he personally picks these items out himself), then later cable and a television to give her a window to the outside world, then even later and computer and internet connection. He has tried to make her comfortable in her imprisonment in lieu of him failing to free her and she is grateful to him for that.
- Carlos had tried and failed to free Santanico countless of times through the years. He has the heart for it, but not the mental fortitude required to make it through the labyrinth. He never stopped trying, but eventually he accepted his weakness, with much resentment and shame, and worked on finding others for the task. The Geckos were a last ditch attempt that he only had a fool’s hope in because he’d seen better men go in and fail, often ending up dead. But he tries because he has to try. It never stops hurting that he wasn’t the one to free her, though he was the first to break her chains.

- Freddie grew up with a single mom whom he loved a lot, but couldn’t always have around because she worked two jobs to keep them afloat and to make sure they got ahead. Earl was this godsend that took an interest in Freddie because he saw she was struggling and tbh, Earl’s daughter was grown and his wife was dead, so as he saw it, it was a mutually beneficial situation—he wasn’t so lonely and Freddie didn’t go without an adult figure around while he was growing up.
- Freddie’s first language was Spanish, but his mother was very focused on his learning English that he forgot most of it when he grew up. He knows very little, which now his mother shames him for, but high school Spanish is not designed to create fluency.
- Freddie nearly dropped out of high school and got his GED because he wanted to hasten the process of making it into the Rangers because it’s not a degree you get, but done by the experience earned and he wanted to get that process started as soon as possible. He was very sure of what he wanted to do at a very young age. But he stayed in school and got his diploma because both his mother and Earl threatened to kill him if he didn’t. (Earl also kept telling him that the Rangers will always be there, he doesn’t need to be so single-minded, live a little, kid.) But as soon as Freddie graduated, he enrolled in the Texas police academy.
- Freddie almost quit after he met Margaret and she told him she was pregnant (they had a shotgun wedding, quick enough that his mother didn’t notice Billy was born a whole two months “premature”) because Earl hadn’t held back on his stories and Freddie knows it’s a dangerous job—but Margaret hadn’t let him and when she asked him, “What else are you going to do?” He didn’t have an answer.
- Freddie likes stories about the old west and westerns, but also has a fondness for the bad guys even though he feels a little weird about that considering what side he chose. Billy is actually named for Billy the Kid, but if anyone asks, he and Margaret say she was name for Margaret’s great-grandmother Wilhelmina.
- Freddie is not exactly a lapsed Catholic as he still attends church most Sundays out of habit, but he never really had faith. Earl being Billy’s godfather meant more to him than what the ritual of baptism was supposed to mean. It was a promise Billy would always have someone she can count on.
