Javier Escuella was born in Nuevo Paraiso and was once a Mexican revolutionary. According to Colonel Allende, Javier's father was a drunk that worked on his uncle's land.
After spending some time in America, Escuella became a member of Dutch's Gang. When Dutch's gang was disbanded after Dutch went insane, Javier took it hard and returned to Mexico to work as a hitman for Allende. Marston is forced to pursue him in 1911 by the federal agents.
