President Felix Guillermo Caridad was the ruler ofTierra Verde, the father of Palo, and the former husband of Sister Salvation. Caridad achieved his political power through military success, anti-communist politics, and a personal fortune from the traffic of cocaine. Caridad had made certain alliances within the United States government, who assisted him in defeating a rebel force within Tierra Verde via the temporary loaning of Nuke. Caridad was impressed by Nuke's efficacy, and sought such a warrior for his own use. He commissioned Geist to develop such a warrior for him, which resulted in his obtaining the cocaine of el Jardin del Rey, and Roughouse as her first test subject.
Caridad coerced his estrange wife to use her healing powers to help palliate the effects of the cocaine by destroying her mission village, and promising to allow her to see her long-lost son, Palo. Caridad convinced Palo to allow himself to be subjected to the cocaine in the hopes of becoming Tierra Verde's new hero. Wolverine interfered in the experiment, resulting in Caridad himself being exposed to the largest amount of the cocaine. Caridad, maddened by the cocaine, unloaded the rest of the supply into himself in an effort to become the hero he had sought in others. This massive collection of the cocaine allowed Spore to reform itself within Caridad and to consume his body, killing him.
