Manuel is a member of an unnamed Colombian drug cartel. The Cartel affiliated itself with Los Carnales, a Hispanic street gang operating in the city of Stilwater. Manuel was sent towards Stilwater to act as the Colombians' representative to do business with the Lopez Family, the leaders of Los Carnales.
After the death of Alejandro Lopez, his son Hector Lopez took control of Los Carnales and started to run it in a very less aggressive way than his father did. Manuel constantly suggested Hector to take more actions like his father would, though Hector would never listen. Manuel also began to fall in love with Luz Avalos, the girlfriend of Hector's brother Angelo Lopez.
He becomes closer to Luz by taking her out each time that Angelo is unable to.[reference?] Eventually, Hector is killed by the The Protagonist, a member of the 3rd Street Saints. Angelo takes control over Los Carnales, and due to Manuel and Angelo's rivalry, Manuel cuts ties with the Carnales.
Eventually, he goes back to Colombia and takes Luz with him.
