Hector "Escorpion" Alvarez is a main character and was the main antagonist of Season 2 in Z Nation, first encountered in Season 2 Episode 2 "White Light".

Background Edit

Escorpion was the vice-president in charge of sales for a Mexican drug cartel known as the Zeros. He has a small Z-shaped scar on his right hand, as all the members of the Zeroes have a tattoo of a "Z". Escorpion's weapon of choice is a golden gun. During season 3 he became a member of the Westward-Bound Survivor Group to atone for his actions.

Pre-Apocalypse Edit

It is known that he abducted Vasquez as well as his family. He gave them a "slow" death before he executed both Vasquez's wife and daughter in front of a powerless Vasquez. Before their death he uttered the phrase, "I'm going to do you a favor."

Post-Apocalypse Edit

Season 2Edit

"White Light"Edit

Shows up on the streets carrying a Bazooka. He hunts Murphy and the rest of the Westward-Bound Survivor Group.

"Batch 47"Edit

Entering the greenhouse compound with his crew. He is responsible for the death of Odegard, as well as an innocent bystander.

"Down the Mississippi"Edit

Escorpion abandons an excellent round of golf to preside over the trial of Sketchy, Skeezy, and 10K, who are charged with grand larceny, willful deception, and fraud over the incident of stealing the travelling dentists' truck and impersonating them. It is unclear at this time why the Zeroes have judicial authority in Burrtown. Escorpion finds them guilty and sentences them to hang, but they are saved by the Westward-Bound Survivor Group. Escorpion escapes the firefight unharmed.

Death Edit

Escorpion was mortally wounded by Javier and given Sun Mei's experimental vaccine moments before he died. While he does not turn into a zombie, he is later shown at the end of the episode opening his eyes to reveal they have turned green and reptilian.
