Nothing is known about Vazquez before the outbreak started aside from the fact that he was a Mexican Naval Officer.
Vazquez is among the Mexican Navy stationed in Baja California, patrolling the coast. He boards the Abigail alongside Miguel. He & his fellow officer negotiate a trade with Luis and Strand. After seeing that the boat is too big for just two people, he demands to see the rest of the boat. After a disagreement, he and Vazquez shoot at Luis and Strand. While both officers are killed, one of them manage to mortally wound Luis.
While Luis and Victor were trying to negotiate a deal too cross the boarder into Mexico, Vazquez and his co-worker demand to search the boat for more people and that they pay more gold per person. Luis and Strand decline Vazquez's offer. He and his co-worker respond with violence. After a small shoot out, Luis or Strand managed to kill him and his co-worker, though not before Luis was lethally wounded.
