Nothing is known about Vazquez's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was a Mexican Naval Officer.
Vazquez is among the Mexican Navy stationed in Baja California, patrolling the coast. He boards the Abigail alongside Miguel. They negotiate a trade with Luis and Strand. After seeing that the boat is too big for just two people, he demands to see the rest of the boat. After a disagreement, he and Vazquez shoot at Luis and Strand. While both officers are killed, one of them manages to mortally wound Luis.
