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.
- Daniel Salazar (Before Reanimation)
Daniel grabs a knife from one of the coast guards and proceeds to stab both Vazquez and Miguel in the brain in order to prevent them from turning.
- The casting call for this character used the name Lieutenant Sanchez.
- He is described as "a military man. When scared, he will not show it in front of his boss.".
- In the IMDB page, Vazquez is credited as Commandante Vazquez. It should be noted that the rank of Commandante does not exist in the Mexican Navy. It is possible that the producers meant Vazquez to hold the rank of Commander, which in the Mexican Navy is Capitán de Fragata (Frigate Captain).
