Character Background[]

El Cazador, brother of Master Templar Margarida Estanyol, and lover of Ruby Travers was an Assassin-turncoat who had chose to join the Templar Order when his own sister enlightened him. He took service for the Spanish Grand Master before he was sent to the Caribbean in order to restore the Templar Order. He served as a hunter for the Order, tracking down and killing members of the Caribbean Brotherhood with his poisoned blade – an improvement of the poison darts.
