Ramon Salazar

Ramon Salazar was a devious and insane 8th generation castellan of a huge castle which overlooked the Pubelo. His childlike appearance was decieving and behind it was a man who acted with an intelligence and cruelty that only an adult was capable of. He is small and fragile and his grey hair and wizened face made him look old, although he claimed to be only 20 years old. His noble family had a long history with the Los Illuminados cult.

The previous castellans tried to supress the religion, removing its dark secret from the clutches of the cultists. Ramon, however, grew up alone with just his butler for company and he became the perfect target for the brainwashing talents of Osmund Saddler. The insidious cult leader turned him to the beliefs of Los Illuminados and manipulated the noble into removing the ancestral seal that kept Las Plagas hidden away. Long ago his ancestors had recognised the dangers of the horrors of Las Plagas and had sealed the away the parasitic monsters deep underground. Saddler convinced Salazar to atone for the 'sin' his ancestors comitted, and together they revived Las Plagas.

This, in turn, led to the creation of the countless abominations that Leon came across during his investigation. As a token of gratitude, Saddler granted Salazar the power of a modified subordinate plaga, a variant that allows the host to retain all intelligence and control the parasite completely. By using the power of this parasite, Salazar vowed to protect Saddler's plans to the bitter end.

Salazar's butler could sense Osmund Saddler's misgivings from a mile away, yet he was powerless to do anything about it as he learned that Ramon had already injected himself with the plaga and once it hatched, there was no going back. However, he decided to remain loyal to his master until the very end.

Saddler also manipulated Ramon into believing that the entire cult was under his control, but this was not the case. To further add to this illusion, Salazar's castle became the unofficial 'home' of the Illumindos, with it's many rooms and hallways swarming with cultists performing various rituals and ceremonies.

A primitive B.O.W. known as the 'Novistadors' were also kept in the basement of his castle. Thanks to their efforts, they managed to re-capture Ashley from Leon's clutches. Salazar was placed in charge of performing the ritual that would make Ashley an official member of the Los Illuminados.

Salazar also had two bodyguards, known as Verdugo; skeletal creatures that were about 20 times more resiliant than the average ganado.

Ramon Salazar was eventually killed by Leon S. Kennedy in the tower at the highest point of the castle.
