Chico was born in Westmont inside a gang infested area, he grew up with a single mother. His mother was a Mexican women and his father was a Chernarussian business man, his father traveled to Los Angeles for a business deal when he and Chico's mother and had a one night stand. Chico never knew who his father was growing up and got involved in gang violence and was in and out of jail, while spending his time in jail Chico turned to Islam. When Chico got out of jail he went right back to the streets and his mother couldn't deal with it and eventually got in touch with Chico's father that lived in Chernarus, Chico's father said he would be willing to buy him a plane ticket to Chernarus to live with him for a bit. Chico's mother told Chico the news and at first Chico was against seeing his father because he hated him, but after Chico was told his father was a rich man he decided that he was going to live with his father and hopefully finesse some money. Chico's father bought him a plane ticket and Chico headed to Chernarus, when he arrived him and his father were not very close and Chico didn't know the language so he stayed to himself. While Chico was staying in Chernarus he started reading more about Islam since he had not read much since his time in jail. After about a month of Chico staying with his father the outbreak hit Chernarus, Chico's father was killed pretty early and he eventually met Synové Černarus and joined them. It was a bit strange that a Mexican American would join Synové Černarus but at the time they needed all the members that they could get, and because Chico was a converted Islamist they brought him in.
