Nothing is known about Elías' life except that he had a wife, Angélica, and two kids, Benito and Sara. He and his family lived on a farm in Baja California. Elias was born on February 12th, 1961.
As the outbreak wrecked havoc in Baja California, his wife and two children are killed. Their bodies are buried on the farm.
As Chris chases chickens in the barn with Brandon, Derek, and James, Travis attempts to calm the young men down. Suddenly Elías bursts into the barn, armed with a shotgun. He shouts in Spanish to everyone and points his gun at them. Travis frantically attempts to calm the farmer down, but Elías shoots James in the leg after he breaks a chicken's neck. As tensions get worse, Chris suddenly shoots Elías in the chest, sending him to the ground and choking on his blood until he dies.
Elías is shot in the head by Chris to prevent reanimation. He is then buried alongside his family by Travis. Travis later looks around in Elias' home to find out his name to carve it in the cross of his grave.
This list shows the victims Elías has killed:
As he shot James in the leg when he broke one of the chicken's neck, Christopher then picks up the gun and shoots him in the chest, killing him. Christopher then shoots Elías in the head to keep him from turning.
