Javier Vasquez was a main character and a survivor in Z Nation. He is first encountered in season 2, episode one. "The Murphy". He was a member of the Westward-bound survivor group up until the end of season 2 and was the leader of the Red Hand cult which was revealed on Heart of Darkness, going by the name "Escorpion" whom was the man who abducted and killed his family.


Vasquez used to be a DEA Agent, but after he busted some of Escorpion's men, Escorpion abducted his wife and daughter, later killing them in front of him. Because of this Vasquez sought Escorpion through the apocalypse to enact vengeance by killing him.

Post apocalypseEdit

Vasquez: a mysterious, rugged bounty hunter with questionable motives. He's tough; he's good with a gun and he can easily find anyone he seeks.

Season 2Edit

"The Murphy"Edit

What's left of the Westward-bound survivor group travels to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where they find Murphy running a zombie strip club. Vasquez arrives to take Murphy, it's sheer Z pandemonium and Murphy and Cassandra escape in a car.

""Heart of Darkness""Edit

Towards the end of the episode, Vasquez is left in the bar after the rest of the group leave. His location or status is not known until Season 3 Episode 9, where it is revealed that he is the leader of the infamous Red Hand, now going by "Escorpion." He then kills the real Escorpion, who is now going by Hector, by brutally stabbing him multiple times with a dagger. He is ultimately decapitated by Warren a few seconds later.


  • He may have once been Catholic, as above the coffins of his wife and daughter was a statue of the Virgin Mary.
