Every home town needs their heros, even the city of Del Oro! Here are the unsung heros that live and love their city. No matter what the odds are, these heros, caped of not, strive to help their fellow citizens – young and old.
What the people of Del Oro see is a vigilante who is trying to rid the streets of bad guys that have changed these once great neighborhoods.
Actuality, this masked avenger is just a twenty-something seeking justice! He’s on a mission to catch the bad guys who hurt the only father-figure he had in his life – his abuelo (Gramps).
ANTONIO F. ALVARADO
On the verge of dropping out and joining a street gang, street kid Antonio Alvarado, turned his life around. This high school and college grad, and former Del Oro law student, is now a history teacher at West Del Oro High. After the tragic crime to his beloved abuelo (Gramps), Antonio put law school on hold to take care of family matters at home (if you know what we mean…) and works as a teacher to pay the bills and help kids from his community.
An ex-military man and grandfather of Antonio, Gramps returns home and finds his youngest grandson headed down the wrong road in life – school dropout, gangs and everything that comes with those two.
Gramps takes Antonio under his wing and teaches him what is is to be a responsible man in today’s crazy world. Unfortunately, Gramps is beat up attempting to save a Del Oro citizen and this tragic event has a huge effect on Antonio’s life.
One of the sweethearts of Del Oro. A very intelligent and independent woman from a modest middle class family in East Del Oro.
A law degree graduate, turned West Del Oro High School teacher due to the increase crime rate and decreased high school graduation rate. She teaches math and is a dear friend of Antonio
Hero? Villain? It is still up for debate. Antonio’s best childhood friend, Hector Francisco Gonzalez, turned to a life of crime after he joined one of Del Oro’s notorious street gangs – The Cincos” After his mother died and his older brothers were sent away for a while (His pops left the house right after he was born), unlike Antonio, Hector felt the gang life was his best option. Now, “ El Loco” runs the “Loco Cincos”, and no one messes with the Cincos. El Loco, the ol’ school ways of the street, he loves old cars, Zoot suits, fancy shoes, money, power and the streets. Nothing goes in or out of west Del Oro without El Loco knowing about it – nothing.
