History: João is a mystery. He started appearing at socialite parties, nightclubs and such in the early nineties. Nobody seemed to know anything about him. The only things that could be discerned about him was that he was incredibly handsome, seemed to be rich, had an intense dislike of men in general and had a way with women comparable to Casanova or Don Juan. As he always preferred the company of women, there was some gossip that João might be gay, but that was soon dismissed, as the women he had taken to bed described his skills as a lover. In 1992, during a party, a drunken guest picked a fight with João. Already annoyed by the presence of the man, João took the opportunity to teach him a lesson and threw him across the room. Later, the rumors that João was really an ace began to spread. He did nothing to dismiss them, but he didn't confirm them either. Men usually think that, besides his strength, the wild card gave João some influence power that makes women like him. Women just think that being ace makes João even more attractive than before.  João, despite the absence of proof, is considered part of the wild card community in Rio.
Note: This write-up is incomplete and may be somewhat misleading. I only put here characteristics that people witnessed or perceived João as possessing them.
