He’ll rage like a bull.

History

Rodrigo is the product of a second marriage, his father remarried a much younger woman, and neither were very prominent in his life, nor was his half-brother, but when his brother’s estranged son, Santiago, started getting into trouble with gangs, Rio offered to take the high-risk youth to live with him in the sticks of Long Island.

Rio himself was in a gang for a brief time growing up in LA, but after the death of a friend, pushed himself to do well in school, earning a partial scholarship to USC, later transferring to the East Coast after nearly falling back to his old ways. At LIU, he studied forensic science, later double majoring with his passion- geology. ((PLAYER KNOWLEGE ONLY: Wanting to see more than just the west coast, he took an internship at Shorehaven Labs, eventually accepting a full time position there upon graduation, attending Long Island University to get his masters in biochemistry.))
