Background

Miguel Sanchez was born to a poor family in some village in Mexico, close to the border to the US. Or what you can call a family, where the father left a woman pregnant with him, or that's what his mother used to tell him, when the little boy inquired about his father. Growing up under the loving care of his mother, he quickly grew a certain bitterness about his father, wondering why he would have left his mother like that. Yet, he seemed to grow up into a rather healthy and even handsome boy. Though the harmony, feeble as it was, was soon enough broken, when his mother was killed by a group of thugs, who were looking for something in the house, but couldn't find it. But nonetheless they took the boy with them, even as he was struggling against them, but clearly had no chance at the mere age of 7.

Those thugs weren't as normal as one would think, though, belonging to one of the major Mexican drug cartels, which was lead by a rather reknown, but yet mysterious man, whom only the most respectable men were honoured to ever see face to face. And for what reason ever Miguel was picked as one of them and the Don treated him fondly for some reason he wouldn't really find out for years to come, as said man had other plans for him first, telling him that he'd have to learn hard and well to grow into such a successful man like he was. The boy hardly understood what was going on, but how could he not agree, having nowhere else to go than to probably live and die shortly after on the harsh streets, being an orphan and everything.

So that's when he started training, proving only after a few years that he had a good talent for the physical /aspects/ of the job, but he was even more excelling at being good at convincing people just by words so any further actions weren't even needed. Even though there was still a bitterness deep inside him that those men had taken away the only part of family he had, he soon grew accustomed with accepting them as his family, even if you couldn't really take a pack of mobsters seriously as your family. Though, the fondness by the Don towards him still remained over all those years, leaving the boy more and more in confusion, but of course it helped him with growing in ranks inside the organization, soon enough finding himself as second in charge and that at the fresh age of 18, unbelievable as it may seem.

Growing in the ranks made him also ambitious and maybe a bit envious of the position that the Don had inhibited so long, even though the older man had only been around every so often, showing his face to even his most loyal follower, or that's what Miguel at least thought of himself, only a few times a year. And then came the fateful day…

The Don had them stage a big coup and it somehow failed. Sensing the moment was probably right to claim what was his anyhow, Miguel challenged the Don upon meeting him, even though it probably was a foolish thing to do so. But the Don acted in a different way than expected, summoning him into a back room… to explain… something to him. That was the moment, when he revealed himself as noone else than the god Tezcatlipoca, and yes that all the gods were real and that he was his father and his godly duties were the reason why he couldn't have raised him like a real father would have, but after all he had taken a watchful eye over him ever since his mother had died. Which was still a moot point between the two and Miguel nearly left in a raging fit, before the god at least soothed him a bit by declaring that he'd proven himself worthy as a scion of his own and that he would also lead the so-called organization from now on, which was concealed as a chemistry plant to the public, so they could do their /business/ out of reach of any investigators or the like. He also handed him his birthrights, a piece of Tezcatlipoca's obsidian mirror on a necklace, as well as a special pair of brass knuckles, which both had more hidden powers that he would soon enough find out about or so he was told. Of course he was also told about his other special powers, lending him even more powers to convince people the way he did even more easily among other things a mere mortal could only dream of.

Equipped with these new powers and gifts, Miguel decided to restructure the organization, making it not only a secret crime cartel, but even more secretly, only including the most devout and trusted followers, a hidden cult for his father, worshipping him and also collecting blood for the sacrifices that the new Don needed for his magic to work. Shortly after, news reached even Miguel's base that there were things going on about other scions appearing all over NYC. Aspiring more than the little power he had over people just now, Miguel then decided to relocate the /organization/, concealing himself as what he was just best at, a honest businessman just looking for a good deal.
