Ernesto Costas is the older of the Costas brothers. He has always been Ramon's bodyguard. All through childhood he would fight the bullies that would pick on Ramon for being different. It wasn't like Ramon was unlike any other child but he had already developed some sort of submissive attitude and it was kind of hard for the other kids to ignore. His attitude got him into more and more fights that Ernesto felt obligated to prevent usually by fighting the guy instead, and beat him so badly he could fight his brother and never picked on him again.

This had a bonding effect on Ramon and he would tag along and eventually became friend with Ernesto's high school friends. Throughout his life Ernesto looked after his brother. When their father was executed after shooting a man during a robbery attempt, Ernesto looked out for them. When their mother died in a drug-related shootout with the cops, it was Ernesto who looked out for them.

It was Ernesto who first met and became friends with Alex Vophang, and Ernesto who introduced his new friend to his little brother. Alex, in turn, introduced his girlfriend Marcia. It wasn’t long after that the four of them started hanging out. When Billy Ray came into the picture, there was some initial hostility from Ernesto and Ramon, but they got over it when they found out how loyal a friend Billy Ray could be.

It was Alex who had the bright idea of robbing the pharmaceutical company, but it was Ernesto who went toe-to-toe with some of the soldiers guarding the place. Soldiers, man! Who anticipated that? It was Ernesto who grabbed the guy's gun and started firing, and it was Ernesto who punctured the storage tank, bathing the group in industrial chemicals.

But it was Ramon who later realized they could use their new abilities to take care of each other, to watch out for one another, and get rich in the process.

Personality and MotivationsEdit

Diablo enjoys being thought of as a tough guy and a dangerous opponent. He goes for all the hooks to spread fear into his enemies. His costume is a reflection of this. He has tried to develop a macabre aura, and for the most part can weird out just about anybody. His teammates are used to this sort of behavior and either ignore it, roll their eyes at it, or make fun of it, but it plays up well with the public.

Diablo is intensely loyal to the team, but his little brother comes first. The rest of the team is aware of this and understands. He is a compulsive gambler, but generally keeps it limited to playing the lottery and the occasional floating crap game.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Ernesto Costas generates and controls fire as an offensive weapon. He prefers to take up a sniper position and use his power to devastate the enemy or the area. He acts as fire support for the group's front line fighters, and try will cover the groups escape if at all possible. His flame is still a formidable defense in hand to hand as it can singe even the seemingly invincible with it's intensity. In fact, it is so incredible hot near him when he goes all out that the surrounding area is often scorched black.

Diablo is a skilled thief and has a long record of breaking and entering under his belt. He is a veteran of the Mexican prison system, and has spent his time in American jails as well. He's well-versed on the criminal community, and has many contacts within the underworld.


Dressed in a dark, blood red outfit complete with demonic horns and a snarling demonic face for a mask with an expression of torture on its lips, Diablo plays up the scariness of his look and his powers. He exercises regularly to keep himself fit.

He is completely hairless as a side-effect of his gaining powers, but it doesn't really bother him anymore. The same side effect has made his eyes a deep blood red.
