History: (Savage Avengers I#15 (fb) - BTS) - While a member of the Ramirez, Veracruz police department, Hector complained to the police captain about another officer's girlfriend coming by the precinct quite often.

(Savage Avengers I#15) - After increasing numbers of drug users mutated by tainted drugs into servants of Shuma-Gorath ravaged Ramirez, Veracruz, Hector and three surviving police officers barricaded themselves in the police station with fifteen surviving men and women. When one of the drug-tainted users arrived at the precinct, one of the officers on watch informed Hector and the others of the impending attack and admitted it had been nice working with them, commenting that the statement applied to all but Hector, whom he felt should not have went to the captain about his girlfriend's frequent visits. The tainted users' tentacles soon broke through the barricades and Hector and his fellow officers fired at the mutate until things went silent. Unsure if they had killed the mutate, Hector and his colleagues were surprised when the mutate burst through the boarded-up window, only to be killed by the vigilante Punisher and his arriving heroic allies. Hector then informed the superheroes about how the local drug cartel had been taken over by some sort of death cult and how the users who took the cult's drugs mutated into demonic creatures.

Hector was one of four police officers left in Ramirez, Veracruz but it's not 100% clear which of the four officers was Hector. We see one officer at a window turn to look back at two officers, one with a hat and one with a shaved head and glasses. We then see the officer at the window look back out of the window and say something to Hector. So it's possible that Hector was the third officer, the one off to the side with buzzed sides of his hair, I'm choosing to go with the officer in a hat as being Hector for the purposes of this profile since we know Hector has to be one of the three who is not the officer at the window and right before speaking to Hector, the officer at the window looks back towards only two officers, which seems to further narrow it down. If something comes along and further clarifies which officer was Hector, I will update this profile accordingly.
