History: Orlando was a hard-boiled police detective when the wild card changed him. He found out about his new power when he was conducting one of his interrogations. Angry with the low-life's unwillingness to reveal any useful information, even though he had used some "hard arguments", Orlando wished he could break the man apart. To his surprise, the man's arm disappeared in an explosion of flesh and blood. Realizing he had been changed by the weird disease that had aflicted the city, Orlando decided to profit from his new abilities. He managed to start a racketeering scheme that went well, but didn't satisfy him. Through a friend, Orlando found out that the government was trying to locate the so-called "aces" and recruit them. Sensing an opportunity, Orlando presented himself to the authorities and soon became an agent. He became involved in several black ops operations and was responsible for assassinating Carlos Lacerda. During the Military Dictatorship, Orlando worked as a torturer. By the end of the seventies, Orlando dropped out of sight. Several members of the resistance think he is still alive and are pressuring the government to reveal his location so he can be put under trial for his crimes.
Note: This write-up reflects Orlando when he was in his prime. At the time of the campaign, he would be 84. That is, if he is still alive.
